Global Frequency 21 October 2018

Apologies for the late distribution of the Global Frequency today.  My son was playing in an elite prospects hockey showcase  in Philadelphia this weekend and he started game number five at 7:00 a.m. this morning.  I think this marks the first time I've ever missed my personally imposed deadline, but I'm sure it won't be the last.  Have a great week!

Fact or Fiction:
I greatly enjoyed the audio version of Zero Sum Game by S. L. Huang.  Set in the very near future, a freelance hostage retriever is pulled into a global conspiracy marred in several shades of gray. Features an enjoyable heroine born with an ability to see the world in mathematic equations which allow her to calculate and execute against seemingly insurmountable odds. (Amazon Link)
