Every home has batteries sitting around in a drawer somewhere waiting to be used. This episode begins with some interesting advice about how to use and store batteries – and how NOT to. Listen and you will understand why it really does matter. https://www.kickassfacts.com/battery-facts/ Artificial intelligence keeps creeping into our lives more and more every day. While AI can be pretty cool and helpful, there is a downside. In fact, there are several downsides. That’s according to Jacob Ward, NBC News technology correspondent, and author of the book The Loop: How Technology is Creating a World Without Choice and How to Fight Back (https://amzn.to/3JBMmh2). Jacob joins me to explain how artificial intelligence is used in medicine, retail, government, and other areas and how it provides benefits as well as creates problems. Do you know what the word “tribology” means? If not, you are about to as you listen to my conversation with physicist Laurie Winkless author the book Sticky: The Secret Science of Surfaces (https://amzn.to/3JwTg7i). Simply put, tribology is the science of surfaces and how they interact with other surfaces. For example, why some surfaces stick together, and some don’t and why some things feel good to the touch and others do not. This is all part of physics and Laurie explains how it works and how it affects your life.  Getting something you want is good. But you know what’s even better? Not LOSING something. This is an important principle that is often used in advertising. It can also work in your attempts to persuade someone. Listen and I will tell you how.
