Stephen Chanderbhan and his wife Rita have always been passionate about “Jeopardy!” passionate.

It didn’t make things any easier when he got the chance to take part in an episode that aired last Tuesday.

Chanderbhan, a philosophy professor at Canisius College, went up against current defending champion Amy Schneider. He got a few correct answers and at one point won up to $7,100 in prize money, but eventually fell to Schneider, one of the strongest players in quiz history.

“It ended as well as possible given the circumstances,” Chanderbhan said Thursday. “She’s an absolutely intense and incredible player.”

Chanderbhan said he had already taken the test to appear on the show but was unsuccessful. Last July, the producers were looking for teachers so he started again. By August, he had passed all screenings and was admitted to the pool of applicants knowing he could be called up at any time over the next 12 months.

His time had come and he knew he would have to fly to Culver City, Calif. for the November 2 shoot. Five episodes are shot in one day. Candidates pay for their transportation and accommodation themselves.

Headed into the shoot, Chanderbhan wondered if he could face off against Jonathan Fisher, who had dethroned Matt Amodeo. Alas, Fisher was gone and Amy Schneider was there.

The producers and everyone involved have been kind to Chanderbhan. The buzzer, however, was not. Astute watchers of the show noticed that Chanderbhan struggled to report.

This was indeed the case. Lights visible to competitors indicate when to buzz. Buzz too soon and you’re stuck for 0.25 seconds. The producers were nice about it but helped him on the first commercial break.

“I wouldn’t change what I did,” Chanderbhan said, “but I might have changed how often I honed that buzzer. I didn’t play a lot of video games when I I was a kid. It wasn’t something my parents enjoyed. It came back to bite me. If I happen to lose a quiz because of my motor skills, I’m good with it.

Chanderbhan has lived in Lewiston for about a year and has taught at Canisius since 2011. The Arlington, Virginia native was a student at St. Louis University pursuing his doctorate. when Eleonore Stump, a professor of medieval philosophy suggested that she approach Canisius and she would say a good word to him.

“She was a fantastic mentor, a world-class philosopher and an even better person, if that’s possible,” Chanderbhan said.

As with most competitors, Chanderbhan said there were certain categories he was more comfortable with.

“What really matters are the clues that happen that day,” he explained. “Give me medieval literature or philosophy, geography or world capitals, I’m here.”

The other thing is to think you can get attached and cram more information into your head is a mistake.

“Preparing is the right word,” Chanderbhan said. “Studying is not. You cannot stuff yourself with knowledge.

As a professor of philosophy, Chanderbhan said one piece of recent pop culture he particularly enjoyed was the Netflix series “The Good Place” starring Ted Danson and littered with deep thought and symbolism. , particularly around the work of Soren Kierkegaard, a Dane widely regarded as the father of existentialism, the theory that we are all free as individuals and develop ourselves through acts of the will.

“It was a cool way to open up philosophy in a very accessible way,” Chanderbhan said. “There are many streams of philosophy since everyone started thinking nonsense.

“We need to think critically about the background conditions of what we think, know, believe and view”

It also warns against confirmation bias, as we live in a time where the answer we all want is still easy to find if you search long and hard enough.

“Really, everyone has a philosophical point of view,” Chanderbhan said. “The purpose of this course (introduction to philosophy) is to understand what you think. My job is to be a teacher, not a preacher.

Billionaire “philosopher king” Peter Thiel loves monopolies – democracy not so much https://ramiroledesma.com/billionaire-philosopher-king-peter-thiel-loves-monopolies-democracy-not-so-much/ Wed, 12 Jan 2022 10:04:37 +0000 https://ramiroledesma.com/billionaire-philosopher-king-peter-thiel-loves-monopolies-democracy-not-so-much/ As the new golden age is now in full swing, we are led by a class of philosophical kings who straddle business and politics.

As the new golden age is now in full swing, we are led by a class of philosophical kings who straddle business and politics.

Unelected and with little control over their power, these philosophical kings – who are usually billionaires – wield enormous influence over our lives. They generally receive hagiographic coverage from the business press.

My New Year’s resolution is to learn more about our Golden Age technology and finance overlords by reading their biographies and their own writings. If I cannot prevent their leadership, at least as a citizen, I can try to understand it.

With that in mind, I read Max Chaftin’s great biography of a philosopher king, “The Contrarian: Peter Thiel and the pursuit of power in Silicon Valley», Published in 2021. I also read Thiel’s start-up advice book from 2014, “Zero to one”, co-written with Blake Masters.

Peter Thiel’s entrepreneurial and investing CV is mind-boggling: he co-founded and then sold PayPal in 2001. He provided the first outside investment to Facebook in 2004. Since then he and his funds have invested in many successful companies such as Yelp, LinkedIn, Airbnb, Lyft, and SpaceX, all while running Palantir Technologies, a multi-billion dollar data mining company founded by Thiel in 2004.

Thiel also pursued a political philosophy of extreme libertarianism, which became more openly known when he was one of Silicon Valley’s few backers for Donald Trump’s candidacy and presidency in 2016.

Photographer: Michael Nagle / Bloomberg

Michael Nagle / Bloomberg

His work as a right-wing provocateur predates his capitalist career. Before being a billionaire, he was a right-wing philosopher.

As an undergraduate and then law student at Stanford in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Thiel was 30 years ahead of his time in identifying, and then attacking, multiculturalism on college campuses as a unifying enemy of the right. Thiel founded the Stanford Review in 1987 and is the author “Myth of Diversity: Multiculturalism and Intolerance on Campus in 1995” – both publications lay the foundations for today’s political struggles against overly “awake” campus cultures and “critical race theory”.

Agree or disagree with him on politics, he’s certainly good at anticipating where things are going, both in business and in politics.

What seems to me the most important to know about Peter Thiel from Max Chafkin’s book is this: Peter Thiel is not a good guy. He used ethically dubious, if not underhand, methods to eliminate his partners in his original successful business, PayPal. He would continue this pattern of short-circuiting the early founders on several occasions, including encouraging Mark Zuckerberg to undermine his own partners at Facebook.

Advocates can see and justify this behavior as the kind of cruelty necessary to be successful at the scale that Thiel has in business. For my part, Chafkin’s book makes me think that Thiel is a philosopher king whom we should be very, very afraid of.

He used his fortune to secretly sue, and ultimately bankrupt, online media company Gawker because of its unflattering coverage over the years. He has over 30 years of experience building networks with right-wing provocateurs who are not just conservative in the traditional sense, but anti-democratic in the most dangerous sense.

He supports and associates himself on several occasions with personalities of the alt-right fringe like Charles Johnson, Curtis Yarvin and Milo Yiannopoulos. They are not so much conservative intellectuals and center-right public figures as provocateurs opposed to democratic norms.

“Peter is not a Nazi,” said Chafkin, quoting Charles Johnson. “Nazi-curious, maybe.”

Johnson then softened that statement about his friend to imply that Thiel simply has far-reaching intellectual interests. But Thiel’s billionaire philosopher’s scheme of interests suggests he has some sort of anti-democratic approach to the end-time government, which blows the system up.

He also has a clear preference for monopolies as a business strategy and spends considerable time describing Google’s monopoly power in “Zero To One”.

The rest of “Zero To One” is much like business books, although like many others of its type, it is filled with general generalizations stated with supreme confidence, relying on anecdotes rather than Datas.

One of the clear lessons from Chafkin’s book is that Thiel’s life and philosophy are at odds. He describes himself as a libertarian whose main tech holding company, Palantir, depends on national security contracts from governments. Its other major investment, SpaceX, depends on NASA and military spending.

Another strange contradiction between Thiel’s stated philosophy and life is that he expresses his pessimism about the American tech and innovation scene, claiming that the 1950s to 1960s were a golden age of voluntary optimism, now lost. Political correctness and transfer payments apparently killed the American dream. That’s odd, considering the explosion of power and innovation in Silicon Valley he’s witnessed and been a part of.

Although he professes an anti-government philosophy, he has certainly invested heavily in political campaigns. He became known for making timely and crucial donations to Ted Cruz’s 2012 senatorial campaign and Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential election. Palantir’s federal government contracts soared under Trump, becoming the ultimate entrepreneur of the military-industrial complex.

Blake Masters isn’t just the co-author of “Zero To One, “ he is also running as a Republican primary candidate for the US Senate in Arizona in 2022. Another Thiel sidekick, JD Vance, is running as a Republican primary candidate in Ohio after working at Thiel’s venture capital firm, Mithril. Vance received $ 10 million in PAC support from Thiel. It all sounds like a philosopher king increasing his grip on the US Senate.

There’s a reason Robbie Coltrane was cast as the Gentle Giant of the “Harry Potter” series. If his sections in the reunion special are any real indication, it looks like Coltrane is just as sweet at heart as Hagrid. As he reflects on his journey in the movies, Coltrane becomes moved and says, “I just think it’s the end of an era. It’s 10 years of my life and my kids have grown up during that, well. sure.” Indeed, Coltrane has two children, both of whom grew up during the time when the actor played the keeper of the keys and the grounds at Hogwarts. Her son, Spencer, was born in 1992 and her daughter, Alice, was born in 1998 (via The Guardian). However, the reason for Coltrane’s tears extends even beyond her own children.

The actor clearly considers his role as Hagrid a huge part of his legacy. “My kids’ generation will show them to their kids so you can easily watch them 50 years from now,” Coltrane said. It also has one final line that’s sure to touch the hearts of any “Harry Potter” fan who hears it. “I won’t be there, unfortunately,” Coltrane notes with a gleeful laugh. “But Hagrid will, yes.

As a famous wizard once said, “There, there, Hagrid. It’s not really a goodbye, after all.

Columbus was replaced by Cuarón in the director’s seat for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, but why did he withdraw from the project?

Chris Columbus did not return to directing Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, but why did the veteran director withdraw from the project? The US-born Columbus enjoyed great success with its first two Harry potter installments, The Philosopher’s Stone and The Chamber of Secrets, which grossed $ 1.8 billion combined. Columbus’ passion for these first two Harry potter iterations of the film was clear from the offset, with the Alone at home the director aggressively asked Warner Bros. to let him run the franchise before Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone ‘Production of its started in early 2000.

VIDEO OF THE DAY

Yet despite a winning formula, dedicated cast and crew, and a constant flow of new sources, Columbus has taken a surprising step back from the Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban project at the end of 2002. Instead, Alfonso Cuarón signed on to direct the third Harry potter installment, with Columbus instead transitioning into the role of producer for the film. This changing of the guard didn’t do much to stop Harry Potter and the Prisoner of AzkabanThe runaway success, however, made the film the second highest grossing film of 2004 and winning no less than nine year-end awards.


Related: The Harry Potter Reunion Laughs At The Worst Thing About The Original Ending

Chris Columbus’ decision not to lead Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was born of several factors, the most pressing being the immediate health of Columbus at the time. In an interview with Hollywood journalist, Columbus remembers the immense fatigue he experienced as a result of “ridiculously long”Filming times for The sorcerer’s stone and The Chamber of Secrets. Columbus also cited the distance between his family during filming as a factor in his decision to hand over the reins of the Harry potter franchise in Cuarón in 2003.



Hermione pointing her wand at Malfoy as Harry and Ron watch

Columbus’ health check after two very successful, but no doubt stressful successes Harry potter productions is the main reason given by Columbus for withdrawing from the franchise. In the same hollywood reporter 2021 interview, Columbus remembers that he “could barely speak”After production on Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets wrapped up, highlighting the exhaustion the director was experiencing at the time. Additionally, the first two films in the franchise kept Columbus away from his family for long periods of time, with Columbus saying he feared he “never know“his children if he stayed to lead each project Harry potter film in the franchise.


Alfonso Cuarón director Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban meant Columbus could instead move on to producing the film in 2003, allowing him to spend more time with his family before Columbus finally left the franchise entirely after the third. Harry potter movie release. Columbus’ continued passion for the Wizarding World remains clear to all, however, with the director stating in the Harry potter special meeting Back to Hogwarts that the shooting of the first two films was “the most beautiful experience of my life,“and that he”always felt guilty for leaving“production. Cuarón’s Prisoner of azkaban subsequently took the Harry potter series in a darker direction, thus raising the narrative stakes of the Wizarding World. Yet in doing so, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban loses some of the wide-eyed wonder of Columbus’ early entries on Potter, which is evident in the way the actors remember their time on set working with Columbus to this day.

Betty White’s Death Philosophy Uncovered After Death: “They Know The Secret”

Betty White’s personal philosophy towards death and the afterlife resurfaced in an unearthed clip, which took social media by storm shortly after her passing.

The clip was uploaded to CBS Sunday Morning’s official Twitter account as a grieving tribute to the icon’s life and legacy.

There, White took a trip down memory lane and referred to a lesson his mother had always taught him.

She began by telling the host, “My mother had a most wonderful vision of death. “She always said, ‘Nobody knows. “

“People think they do – you can believe whatever you want to believe what’s going on at the last moment – but nobody ever knows until it happens.”

White recalled at the time, “Growing up, every time we lost someone, she would always say, ‘Now they know the secret. “

“When I pontificate it sounds like that, you know, ‘Oh, well, she preaches.’ I don’t preach, but I think maybe I learned it from my animal friends.

Before concluding her interview, White even shared a bit of age-defying wisdom that she swears kept her young.

As part of his personal anti-aging philosophy, the icon admitted, “Kindness and consideration from someone other than yourself, I think it makes you feel young. I really do. “

Welp, it was nice to know you …

With 2021 behind us, we’re aiming for 2022. And uh, things are looking a little bit better, well … dark. And the French prophet and philosopher Michel de Nostradamus is to blame.

Nostradamus made predictions about the future of humanity in his book The Prophecies, and his predictions for 2021 were anything but cheering: apocalypse, famine and asteroids. And his predictions for 2022? Equally dark. You can expect a robot uprising, the end of humanity, and more.

* Disclaimer: Please be aware that these are only predictions and not facts. This is just speculation. *

An uprising of robots

“The Moon in the middle of the night on the high mountain. The new sage with the lonely brain sees it: By his disciples invited to be immortal, Eyes to the south. Hands in breasts, bodies on fire.

The rise of machines is near. According to the story of the sky, the passage refers to an immortal “sage”. This sage, dear friends, could mean artificial intelligence, which has evolved over the past decade. Will SkyNet events unfold as they did in Terminator? We will know, we guess …

Where’s Arnold Schwarzenegger when you need him ?!

The end of humanity

“After a great turmoil for mankind, a greater one is prepared, The Great Mover renews the ages: Rain, blood, milk, famine, steel and pestilence, Is the fire of heaven seen, a long spark which short.”

“Neither abbots, nor monks, nor novices to learn; Honey will cost a lot more than candle wax. So high the price of wheat, This man is restless. His next to eat in his despair.

As in 2021, the passages above alluded to the famine and the apocalypse. Welp, it was nice to know you! Make sure you start making a zombie apocalypse kit.

A climate crisis

“Like the sun, the head will burn the shining sea: the living fish of the Black Sea will only boil. When Rhodes and Genoa are half starved. The locals to cut them up will work hard.

If we are to find out why we are not getting true happiness and what else is needed to be satisfied, we have to look within. Jeevan Vidya is the rediscovery of philosophy in human consciousness, which not only helps find these answers but also brings a life of fulfillment. Vidya tackles the root cause of the problems of self, family, society and nature with the aim of finding solutions to inner conflicts.

The heart of vidya is to understand the basic human conception which comprises two distinct entities, the body and the Self. The needs of the body, food, clothing, shelter, and that of the Self, to know, to be satisfied, to respect, to love, to help others, are different.

Both needs must be met, but in a mutually exclusive way. For example, the body, through its sensory organs, transmits information to the Self which then perceives and evaluates these senses – loves them, hates them, reacts to them, etc. The needs of the Self are intangible, those of the body, tangible ….

Vidya is presented in the form of propositions, and does not expect anything to be accepted on the basis of faith or preconditioning, but on rigorous self-examination of the veracity of the propositions. When we are able to evaluate all the states we inhabit and find answers to them, each human being endowed with an independent free will evaluates the proposals on his own and moves towards fulfillment.
