Download the podcast or listen to it here.In a conversation based on a recent article for Evolution News, Egnor says scientists should have “stayed in their lane,” giving policymakers the information that science can provide about a potential pandemic, and left the political calculations alone. He argues that WHO failed in one of its primary jobs, which is providing timely information and recommendations for preventing and slowing the spread of pandemics. They sat on information about COVID-19 for weeks, long after they knew there was a serious problem in China. Egnor also urges policymakers to apply science along with other expert information in a transparent decision-making process. And they must apply sound ethics — for which Egnor offers Thomas Aquinas’s four-fold framework, including the principle of “double effect.”Editor’s note: For more on Aquinas, intelligent design, and evolution, see the website of Father Michael Chaberek, Aquinas.Design.Image: Thomas Aquinas, via Aquinas.Design.

Ethereal Sparkle & Experimental Works

first_imgMeghan Boody’s “Trésor (Dear Dame, your sleeping sparkes awake).” William Ris Gallery in Jamesport will host the opening of “Neverlands,” an exhibit by Jeff Muhs and Meghan Boody on Friday, October 11, from 6 to 9 PM. Muhs, a South Fork resident, and Boody, from the North Fork, will be exhibiting for the first time together, representing both shores of the East End. There will also be an artist talk on Saturday, November 2, from 1 to 3 PM, when the two will share their backstories. Until then, Indy caught up with the artists.What does the title, ‘Neverlands,’ mean to you?Jeff Muhs: Meghan and I each have our own mythos to our work. Meghan has the characters that occupy her work, their journeys, their condition. My mythos is in the paint and color, their character, and the story I tell with them. Each of our works lie somewhere in the “Neverlands” of our own creation.Meghan Boody: To me, “Neverlands” is a twilight zone, an alternate plane that exists parallel to ours. It’s a magical place we often visit in our dreams where the normal laws of reality are suspended. Sometimes we get lucky during our day and the veil momentarily lifts and a glimmer of the mystery bleeds through. These are moments of déjá vu and synchronicity that often illuminate our path. As an artist, I try to capture this fleeting beauty.Is there a particular piece that you’re excited to show?JM: I will have two brand new paintings in the exhibition. They represent the latest incarnation of my work. I also will be bringing several small-scale experimental works that may be the forerunner for my next series.MB: I am excited to be showing some transparent photographs printed on plexiglass that I made over the summer. They are like large glass slides and can be hung in front of windows. The natural light activates each image, lending an ethereal sparkle to the otherworldly characters and scenes. The photos are blow-ups of individual cards from my PsycheSuperStar oracle deck (similar to a Tarot deck). Each manipulated image aims to capture the essence of familiar mythic archetypes that are imbedded in our collective imaginations. So if any of these images looks strangely familiar to you, they are doing their job.How does creativity strike?MB: For me, creativity is the life-blood of existence. Not just for artists, but for everyone on the planet. There is great creativity in a master plumber, surgeon, parent, or anyone who is interested in developing their craft. The creative genius hidden inside everyone is directly linked to the divine. Our life’s mission is about tapping into this source.JM: I think rather than a flash of inspiration, creativity for me is wound up like energy in a spring over time, building up to a breaking point, and then is unleashed.How do you feel your work will complement the other artist?JM: While my work and Meghan’s, on the surface, might seem very different, we have, in the past, acknowledged some underlying commonality. While not completely identified, this exhibition gives us the opportunity to explore that connection further.MB: Jeff Muhs and I go way back. In the early 1990s, I posted an ad in the Southampton Press for volunteers to pose nude with their pets for a series of photographs. Jeff and his best friend, Brad, responded. They appeared at my studio with a humongous sow along with a knapsack of Oreos — bribes which were necessary, as this pig was not budging without incentives. Brad was the one who stripped down and we had a hilarious time trying to choreograph a decent shot. (The piece is part of the show.) I mention this incident as an indication of how willing Jeff is to venture into, shall we say, unusual territory. I have been told I have the same tendency. I believe our work together will create a particular blast of intensity!What do you hope to discuss during the talk on November 2?MB: By experiencing art, people open themselves up to the process of transformation. Simply exposing oneself to the symbols, archetypes and color in a work can have a lasting impact on the psyche and trigger shifts in behavior. I hope to engage the audience in a conversation about these fascinating possibilities. To get the ball rolling, I will be giving readings from my oracle deck to volunteers.JM: I think we might discuss our association, what we think of each other’s work, and how it led to the genesis of this exhibition.“Neverlands” will run through November 9. William Ris Gallery is located at 1291 Main Road in Jamesport. Visit www.williamris.com. Sharelast_img read more

Football Talk: Carlton Cole’s ‘yer maw’ fail, Depay’s superhero boots

first_imgAnd remember when Liverpool’s Joe Allen was called the Welsh Andrea Pirlo? Well maybe not so much away from the pitch. He’s swapped the Kop for the coop and confessed his love of farmyard animals. So when’s Carlton Cole’s next Periscope chat? SNS GroupMemphis Depay is in search of some superpowers with a bizarre advertising ploy.The Welsh Andrea Pirlo owns 16 chickens. Shay Logan unveils his new mode of transport.Something for you to try out when you’re bored at work.Could Thomas Muller be anymore endearing?Don’t mess with Kingsley…Robert Lewandowski could be in action for Poland. SNS SNS GroupAberdeen goalkeeper Danny Rogers turns 22 today and celebrated by signing a new contract with the club yesterday. Evidently Carlton Cole has not been in Glasgow long. The striker had a laugh with supporters on Periscope, live from the Celtic dressing room, but gave away how little of the local lingo he has so far picked up. Responding to a fan on Twitter he joked “your mum” instead of the classic “yer maw”. Oh Carlton, you have a lot to learn. Aberdeen’s Shay Logan, meanwhile, has been out and about…on a swegway board. So if he rocks up to the Pittodrie treatment table anytime soon we all know why. Looking forward to the new Batman v Superman movie that’s coming out on Friday? Memphis Depay is apparently. There’s talk of him wearing commemorative boots especially for the occasion. last_img read more
