Yes, this is a happy hour - but it will be seriously cool for students - and parents feel free to bring a cocktail!

As part of #MuseumWeek, we're reflecting on the remarkable #HeroesMW in spy history. Trusted by all sides, yet loyal only to one. That takes extraordinary bravery, skill, devotion, and quick wits. James Lafayette, posed as a runaway slave, infiltrating British camps. His work as a spy provided critical military intelligence that helped secure American victory at Yorktown.

Uncover his remarkable story in the our upcoming Spies and Spymasters Virtual Happy Hour - Thursday, May 14; 5:30 p.m. Register: https://bit.ly/3cpjMiw

Hey Everyone - help spread the word to any kids out there who might want to enter! We are accepting entries now through... well we think May. All entries will soon be posted in a Gadget Gallery on our website and our judges (CIA gadget experts) will be reviewing and commenting on all entries. Ready...set...go!
When I first read of Hmong (pronounced mong) Sudden Death Syndrome in my "Abnormal Psychology" textbook by Sue, Sue, and Sue I knew something was suspicious about CIA-trained soldiers immigrating to the U.S. to mysteriously die from culture shock.
What work do you do dad? I'm not at liberty to divulge that.
Robert G. Heath was a racist brain implant hacker in the 1950's. HIs claims of taraxein have been intertwined with my curiosity of what killed the cat since the push to debunk it decades after the fact.
Over the years I've noticed cellphones will make my radio alarm speaker make strange noises if sitting nearby. In the movie "Breached" about traitor Robert Hanssen, he blames GPS.
Is there a video series that showcases America that students can learn from so that folks don't grow up thinking their entire world population is what it's like outside their door and everywhere else is "[redacted]," to quote Trump? A lot of America looks out their window thinking there's plenty of wide open space for everyone to fit. World travelers know better. I'd love to see a repository of educational material with fact-checking built in. One-stop shopping to know the truth, even if it relies on a Glomar exemption: "We can neither confirm nor deny the existence of the information requested but, hypothetically, if such data were to exist, the subject matter would be classified, and could not be disclosed."
Being reminded of a 2014 article about a supercomputer modeling 1 second of brain activity in 40 minutes, decades ago on a Twilight Zone type of show they featured a hockey puck sized diamond neural network. Printing 3D diamonds into such a circuit could be interesting aiming for specs like a one megabit integer rather than 64 bits.
I had this terrible thought the other day of being quick-changed into costume and whacked in the leg to alter my stride.
So there's this drone being advertised that doesn't use GPS, but instead a camera to recognize where it took off from in order to land there again. I'm wondering how much payload it could carry; my antivirus doesn't seem to like their site.
Recording from a healthy, intact forest at the Musiamunat Community Conservation area, a continuous 1,630 hectare forest in Papua New Guinea. So I played dance accompaniment. https://soundcloud.com/kevin-crosby-4/brainforest https://qz.com/1513794/tropical-rainforests-have-a-soundtrack-recording-it-may-save-them/
When Jesus was asked about Heaven, he said get to work at the vineyard building it. That being said, here's my latest favorite hit song wishing I'd know about it sooner.
My favorite class at the University of Washington was Psychoacoustics even though the professor mispronounced 5th as "fifts" while expecting a stupid number for the speed of sound after just having taught me all the open source ways of changing it. Barely even 3 significant digits from the reading?
