5 esoteric science papers to take your mind off the global hellscape

Experiencing 2020 from the POV of a rational-minded person is exhausting and scary. It sometimes feels as though we’ve ended up in the worst timeline of a badly-scripted parallel universes story. While everyone has their own tried-and-true coping mechanisms, we’d like to suggest a science-based remedy for the pandemic blues: read some wacky research papers.

Hear us out. You could spend your day thinking about things like the upcoming US presidential elections, COVID-19, global climate crisis, and other horrifying topics. You could.

Pete Erickson is Leading the Voice Technology Community Movement. Here’s What You Need to Hear Now For Your Brand.

The world is speaking. Are you listening? A brand’s voice is no longer something ephemeral. It’s more tangible as companies can “talk” to their customers, and that’s not a metaphor. Voice technologies embrace different aspects of modern human life. We’re going to experience the technology transition that will empower brands and customers to rule reality by voice. Does it still sound like a blurry future? Actually, it’s closer than expected.

According to Statista, there are an estimated 3.25 billion digital voice assistants being used in devices worldwide as of 2019.

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy told lawmakers Friday that the US Postal Service plans to “send a letter to every American” explaining “what our process is” for mail-in voting.

“We are emphasizing, and in fact, I think in September, we’re going to send a letter to every American with what our process is, going out to every American citizen,” DeJoy said at a hearing of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committee.

A record number of Americans are expected to utilize postal voting because of the coronavirus pandemic, due to fears of contracting the virus at polling places.

“The American public can rely on the United States Postal Service to fulfill our role in the electoral process,” the website says, calling vote-by-mail a “secure”
