From the Publisher

Since the beginning of time, man has been described as a thinking animal, an animal able to think for himself on any subject, at any time, able to make decisions, able to make things better for himself.
Unfortunately, for every step he’s taken forward, he has stepped backwards almost as many times.To many times, he has chosen to walk in other men’s foot steps rather than create steps of his own so that others might follow, making himself a follower more times than a leader.
The life of man is a constant struggle complicated by many detours, sudden stops and deceiving advances that often turn out to be steps of regression or lateral slides.
Somewhere between his thinking mind, aggressive sole and his gentle heart lies the potential to endure the bad times so that he might live to enjoy the good times,.......... and the place in life, ‘Where We Land’.

AGAINST EVERYTHING: ESSAYS SEPT. 6, BY MARK GREIF Following on the heels of last year’s ambitious, if somewhat clunkily titled The Age of the Crisis of Man: Thought and Fiction in America, 1933–1973, Grief’s new book collects more than a decade’s worth of provocations from a founder of n+1. In it, he traces the arc of a young intellectual through the Bush and Obama administrations, from the gym to the ramparts. SUBSTITUTE: GOING TO SCHOOL WITH A THOUSAND KIDS SEPT. 6, BY NICHOLSON BAKER Baker is an obsessive with immense powers of observation, a strong social conscience, and, as those fam

Virtual Reality Could Detect Fall Risk In Seniors

Virtual reality could be useful not only for detecting balance impairments early, but perhaps also for reversing those impairments and preventing falls. Every year, falls lead to hospitalization or death for hundreds of thousands of elderly Americans. Standard clinical techniques generally cannot diagnose balance impairments before they lead to falls. In a study in Scientific Reports, a research team led by Jason R. Franz, assistant professor of biomedical engineering at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, used a novel VR system to create the visual illusion of a loss of balance a
