  1. Neal Stephenson Fall, or Dodge in Hell – Narrative Species

    Richard "Dodge" Forthrast –last seen in REAMDE – is puttering through the beginning of another day-after-tomorrow in the early 21st century. It’s an intimate, engaging scene that stands on its own, which is to say that Fall is a follow-on to REAMDE, not a sequel. In short order, he dies, and before readers have belted…

  3. How I memorized an entire chapter from “Moby Dick”

    With memory palaces, anyone can look like a memory genius.

    I always thought I was born with a bad memory. I could never remember multiplication tables, I’m so bad with names, and I honestly couldn’t tell you what I ate for lunch two days ago. Yet I found a way to memorize an entire chapter of Moby Dick in less than four days. It turns out I was going about memorizing things all wrong.

    The way most people are taught to memorize is by making flash cards and just repeating the information over and over again until it sticks. This is terribly ineffective, really frustrating, and the reason nobody can tell you what 8 times 12 is.

    A much better technique is the “memory palace,” an idea that Joshua Foer explores in his book Moonwalking With Einstein. A memory palace is a mnemonic technique that allows you to more easily memorize information by creating corresponding visual images that you mentally place along a path in a familiar location.

  8. Addiction and the Neuroscience of the Brain, Part 3

    Understanding Relapse (September 28, 2012). Presented by Joseph Lunievicz, BA, RYT (Director of Training, NDRI).

    The focus of this webinar is upon helping participants understand how relapse can occur with chemically dependent drug court clients. Promoting behavior change with clients in drug court includes understanding that relapse can be part of the recovery process. This is expressed through three components of relapse prevention strategies: recognizing the warning signs of relapse; identifying triggers, and developing reinforcement strategies. Mr. Lunievicz uses the National Institution of Drug Abuse’s definition of relapse describing it as "an unfolding process in which the resumption of substance use is the last event in a long series of maladaptive responses to internal or external stressors or stimuli." Also defined is the common occurrence known as a "lapse" or "slip" — "an isolated incident of chemical use, or an isolated episode of behavior change, not immediately resulting in a return to old using patterns."

    He explains that substance abuse treatment has always had a compliance component, which is entailed in the concept of "relapse" — often caused by a participant’s lack of skill and lack of self-confidence.

    He goes on to explain the effects drugs have on…
