What is Dark Energy and Dark Matter?

June 14, 2018 |

When astronomers discovered that galaxies are moving apart from each other, this led to the “Big Bang” theory on the origin of the universe. However, when they were better able to precisely measure the rate of expansion, they were shocked to realize that the expansion is actually accelerating. This defied logic because over time gravity should be slowing the expansion. The only explanation for this was that there must be an as yet undiscovered, unmeasured force, far stronger than gravity, which was repelling galaxies. Scientists dubbed this strange force “dark energy.”

Dark energy is called “dark” because nobody really understands what it is. However, there is definitely something happening to accelerate the rate of expansion. In fact, to account for the expansion, scientists estimate that 74% of the universe is dark energy. Although it would not happen until billions of years in the future scientists fear that dark energy will cause the universe to expand … Read More

Article Writing Tips: What’s Interrupting You?

June 10, 2018 |

One of the most common problems article writers face is interruptions. Since most writers work at home, this adds to the potential interruptions and if you have children or even indoor pets (or both), this adds more distractions to your writing day.

If you want to be able to write more articles, it’s going to be important to cut out as many distractions as possible. The only way to do this is to find out what’s really interrupting you and then determine a way to prevent this as much as possible.

At the end of the day, take a look at this notepad or paper. What was … Read More

How Role Play Improves Writing Skills

June 7, 2018 |

Text-based role playing in chat rooms and instant messages began as an interesting way to pass the time when I was about 12 or 13. But, throughout the years that it was a mindless hobby, it developed skills within me as a fiction writer that I didn’t become aware of until six years later.

Storytelling and Character Development:

In text-based role play, it is necessary that you present your character as best you can to the other player. For the sake of keeping my RP partner awake and interested, I would use as few descriptive words as possible to paint a picture or express a specific kind of character. By doing so, I’ve learned how to tell a story in such a way that it continues to move with few snags and slow spots. And, along the way, paint a vivid picture (I hope) in the reader’s mind of the characters used to tell the … Read More

March 20, 2018 |

The Information Technology field is undeniably unique as a form of study. The reasons for this are myriad, but the one that’s probably the most troubling for up and coming students of technology is the speed with which new developments come down the pipe.
