The Last Writer

I have started to notice a trend in articles and stories popping up in news feeds. The frequency of writing has increased and the articles and notes seemed to be missing something. It wasn’t something I could put my finger on but rather something I felt as I read. I was curious to see how far AI writing has come along and I was pretty surprised to find a bunch of AI writing services out there for blogging, news, essays and just about anything.

I generated a few articles myself.

A few years ago, I was sitting with a retired fighter pilot, he told me the last fighter pilot has been born. He said, we will all be replaced by drones. A lot of information today indicates, he is probably right. We are seeing a great deal of automation cropping up in many industries. Honestly, I didn’t expect to see a lot of AI in writing stories and articles. Writing to me is a very human thing to do. Well, maybe not! I decided for this post to expose you to the idea and reality that much of what you are reading today is most likely written by a machine.

Why You Should Inhale Before Eating A Hardboiled Egg

If you’ve ever had a frustrating egg peeling experience, you’ll know that there’s nothing wrong with a hard-boiled egg (or any other egg, for that matter). Search the internet, refer to a cookbook, ask a friend or ask your friends, and you will find a lot of information about the type of egg to use. In preparation for preparing hard-boiled or hard-boiled eggs, the Michigan State University Extension recommends that consumers select and cook the eggs in a way that involves proper food handling and storage to produce a “hard-boiled” egg that does not look delicious, but is safe to eat. [Sources: 5]

It is best to use eggs that are at least 7-10 days old so that the eggs can absorb air, which helps to separate the membrane from the shell. Eggs that are too fresh have a difficult shell without damaging the egg white. Selected eggs should be refrigerated at room temperature for 30-60 minutes before being peeled and cleaned to remove visible cracks. [Sources: 5]

Look at the egg carton and read the best date to use to select eggs of good taste and quality. [Sources: 5]

If you are willing to eat a hard-boiled egg, you should peel it when it is ready, as this helps it last longer. For eggs immediately afterwards, use an ice bath to stop the boiling of the egg and help dissolve the membranes of the eggs that stick to the shell. The easiest way to peel hard-boiled eggs is to give them a nice crack on a flat surface and roll them in the palm of your hand until the shells are cracked. [Sources: 0]

It really is very simple, but if you do it once or twice, you will remember how to do it for the rest of your life, no joke. [Sources: 4]

If you buy a pre-peeled egg and eat it, wait at least an hour before eating it. I suggest you use caged eggs – free or organic if you can afford it, but be aware that they are not in the cage and taste like normal eggs. If you’re a vegan, you don’t need a hard-boiled egg, just a normal egg with a little salt and sugar. [Sources: 3, 4]

Hard Boiled Eggs advises eating a pre-peeled egg within two to three days of opening the pack. Hard – boiling eggs, advises to consume a soft – boiled egg as soon as possible after it has been boiled. If you eat it after you have cooked it, it is fine to store it in its container and put it in the fridge for up to two days. [Sources: 3]

It does not last as long as raw eggs because the protective layer of the shell is compromised during cooking and the open pores make it easier for bacteria to enter and contaminate the egg. One way to ensure that your hard-boiled eggs are consumed within a week is to write a date on them when cooking. In a steam pot, the eggs are boiled to hard-boiled perfection in a few minutes. [Sources: 1, 3]

Remove the eggs from the pot with a slotted spoon after 10 minutes of steam and place in a bowl of cold water. Once the egg has completely cooled, run cold water over the bowl for a few minutes. If you run your eggs under cold water and let them sit in an ice bath, you can easily peel the hard-boiled eggs later. [Sources: 1]

A hard-boiled egg on the counter cracks the shell so that the shell can be removed. After boiling, carefully pour hot water over the eggs and dip them in cold water (ice can be added as an option). [Sources: 5]

Hard – boiled eggs can be enjoyed alone, but a simple and familiar twist is a delicious devilish egg. If the temperature is above 90 degrees, the food should sit for at least 30 minutes before eating. [Sources: 5, 6]

Some recipes state that eggs are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, but it is best to make sure you use eggs that are at least two weeks old and have not expired. Treat the eggshell with a proven method of destroying salmonella, such as salt and pepper spray or salt and pepper. [Sources: 2, 6]

Bacteria that can cause disease can grow quickly if they are undercooked at any temperature, especially near foods such as eggs. Boiled eggs or egg dishes should be thoroughly heated to 165 degrees Celsius before serving and should not be kept in the refrigerator for more than 24 hours, although they can be refrigerated for later serving. Immediately after cooking hard – serve boiled or fried eggs or any food containing eggs with high fat or sugar content. [Sources: 2]

There are really so many ways to cook eggs that are delicious, from the simplest to the most complex and from a variety of different types of eggs. [Sources: 1]

    Using a web connected thermostat product such as the Nest thermostat will mean that disagreements over the office being too cold or hot will become a thing of the past. [1]
    We are surrounded by different types of technology and connected devices, from wearables to smart glasses and beyond, but the real opportunity arises when these devices can be connected together. [1]
    We already know that web connected devices and IoT data is changing the way our work environments are run, but getting started ( and knowing where to start ) can be tough. [1]



Worried? Me too.. What do you think? I think we should have a tags generated to indicate whether we are reading something machine generated or human. I’d like an indication of automation as it will help me rationalize what I am reading.

  1. Great article. Very insightful observations. I couldn’t agree more. There needs to be greater transparency with content, particularly when AI is involved.


  2. So how did you know that content is AI or machine-venerated? Your point reiterates the need for content validation and human peer review (like the early internet list moderator or paper-based publication editor.)
