Political Party with Adam Smith: City Council candidate Dane Kuplicki

The race to succeed Amy Foster on the St. Petersburg City Council so far includes four people, but Dane Kuplicki says his youth, energy and local roots give him an edge. “The fact that I’m local, that I grew up here and understand this community and understand the people really kind of sets me apart,” said Kuplicki, a 34-year-old optometrist who grew up in south Pinellas, on Political Party with Adam Smith.

Adam Smith Takes Cancel Culture in Hand

Last spring, cancel culture came for Adam Smith. The Slavery and Colonialism Legacy Review Group in Edinburgh interrogated Adam Smith’s links to “slavery and colonialism” and considered “reconfiguring” his statue and grave. The move was especially bizarre given Smith’s anti-slavery sentiments. As Daniel Klein observes, “For years Smith was acknowledged...

Adam Smith Versus Bamboo and Cicadas

I set out to write an essay on spontaneous order—billions of living beings acting in concert without central direction. My idea was to explore the sharp dissimilarity between spontaneous order among animals and among humans. I thought to call it “Cicadas and Adam Smith,” only to discover that, in 1977, the late evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould wrote an essay—grievously wrongheaded, in my view—titled “Of Bamboos, Cicadas, and the Economy of Adam Smith.”

Political Party with Adam Smith: Preserving St. Pete’s vibe could take a citywide vote

Back in 2011, a strong majority of St. Petersburg voters passed a city charter amendment requiring a waterfront master plan to ensure the city’s sacred waterfront would be properly protected. Ten years later, development in the city is booming so much that backers of that waterfront plan are calling for a similar plan to ensure St Pete doesn’t lose its character amid a sea of million-dollar condos.

How Adam Smith Found Inspiration in the Panasonic FZ-20

My name is Adam Smith. Photography has been part of my life, as it has been for many others growing up. Film cameras came everywhere with us on family outings in our home state of Michigan and other states around the Great Lakes. At this point, photography was a means of keeping a record of memories—not an art form. I became seriously interested in photography in 2009 when I was gifted a Nikon P-90 for Christmas by my wife and mother-in-law. It replaced my Nikon L-4 (I purchased from my older brother) and transformed my view of what is possible with a camera. The Nikon L-4 was limiting. I took the Nikon P-90 everywhere with me. To the store, on walks and hikes, and to the skate park where I enjoyed afternoons on my BMX bike. I took so many pictures with it. The camera inspired confidence. It told my story. But my favorite camera is the Panasonic FZ-20.

Readers Write: Adam Smith for academic excellence in Port Washington School District

All families want the best education possible for their children, and all children deserve it. This is why I am running to be a Port Washington School Board Trustee. I want to shift the focus of the Board back to what matters: to fundamentals, to addressing the decline in our district’s national ranking, and to the underlying performance metrics that are driving that decline.

Adam Smith on David Hume

David Hume died August 25, 1776. Here are some details from Wikipedia:. Diarist and biographer James Boswell saw Hume a few weeks before his death, which was from some form of abdominal cancer. Hume told him he sincerely believed it a “most unreasonable fancy” that there might be life after death.[42] … Hume asked that his body be interred in a “simple Roman tomb”. In his will he requests that it be inscribed only with his name and the year of his birth and death, “leaving it to Posterity to add the Rest”.[44] … Adam Smith later recounted Hume’s amusing speculation that he might ask Charon to allow him a few more years of life in order to see “the downfall of some of the prevailing systems of superstition.” The ferryman replied, “You loitering rogue, that will not happen these many hundred years … Get into the boat this instant”.[45]

Political Party with Adam Smith: Here are simple, consensus steps to preventing the next gun massacre

The thoughts that come to mind after another mass shooting are all too familiar to April Schentrup. “The first thing that comes to mind is here comes another family member who lost a loved one, whose loved one was taken tragically, who thought they were safe going to the supermarket or going to their job, and now they’re not going to come back. Because that’s what happened to us when our daughter went to school,” Schentrup, whose 16-year-old daughter Carmen was among 17 people murdered in the Feb. 14, 2018 Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School massacre.
