Started the Udacity Data Anslyst nanodegree program today. It’s time to move forward and use my Ph.D. In industry. I’ve struggle for several years trying to figure out what to do with my chemistry degrees. I am thinking about moving into market analysis for a company and doing data analysis for environmental interests on the side. My ministry training brought me to Pine Ridge and I saw needs in saving the planet with data and education. However, it’s been hard to get on my feet with a defined path. I hope this program helps provide some focus and direction. Thankful to my friends for a place of newfound stability after about six years of being swept too and fro by life. Thankful for this chance to start slow in something that builds on my interests. Hoping to work at home on this morning and night while working at Bill’s Imported Foods.
Poet: Data, Climate Change, the West, and the Islamic World
Dr. Kaya Erbil
I make money any way I can to finish a book of poetry on climate change, the West, and the Islamic World. Been working on this book for eight years. Features a raw and gritty personal story of mental illness. The book explores themes around religion, and tries to place a framework around the current War on Terror/global Islamic fundamentalist jihad. Relates technology and weapons of war to their basic scientific origin, digging deeper to find their mythological sources. Ending with a 500 year time travel journey to illuminate the public on the Islamic origin of Copernicus’s discovery, Arabic language semantics are explored to ask why the West gained a 500 year dominance. Back to 2018, faced with the existential dilemma of climate changed induced geopolitical apocalypse I will compare Islamic finance to Western capitalism and prove it to be superior as a framework for modern ecological economic. All these poems point back to the fight between Ishmael and Isaac. They both will realize that perhaps Ruth or Mary were the ones we should have written more about…
