I think there’s a lot of people who right now are worried that people are going down frivolous paths, like inventing new social networks or new games, instead of inventing the cures for cancer or fundamental technologies that will change the world.
It would be wrong for us to offer difference from the Conservative Party at the cost of credibility, but equally it would be wrong to offer credibility at the cost of being clear that there remain very fundamental differences.
Picking apart a story for its scientific underpinnings doesn’t diminish it, it enhances it, makes us dream of the possibilities it proposes. I think appreciating the magic of reality, going from ‘can’t happen’ to ‘could happen,’ is the fundamental appeal of science fiction.
When I was an institutional broker in a former life, I was a believer in the merits of using technical analysis. I found that it was a very useful tool that complemented the much more mainstream tools generically referred to as fundamental analysis.
I want to make a drug. I want the science to be more than imaginary, where I think, ‘We’re learning these fundamental principles, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.’ I think we are doing that, but I want to do something really practical. I want to actually, in my lifetime, help people.

The basic problem is for a congressman or a president to get elected, they need obscene amounts of money. And the only place you can get obscene amounts of money is from Wall Street and the big corporations who benefit from shipping our jobs and our factories overseas – that’s the fundamental political problem.
The Taliban has not, in my judgment, in any significant way changed their fundamental goal and objective, which is to take over Afghanistan and return to running that country.

The threat to free television. The reason television is free is because it is a life support system for commercials. That fundamental aspect is about to change.
Shakespeare’s stories are still very strong. He structured fantastic stories about things that were fundamental to the human being and psyche.
Food choices are something fundamental you can control about yourself: what you take into your body. When so many other things are out of control and your influence over climate change – all these much larger issues – it’s very hard to see any results or any progress. But everybody can see progress around food.
People who bet against the Internet, who think that somehow this change is just a generational shift, miss that it is a fundamental reorganizing of the power of the end user. The Internet brings tremendous tools to the end user, and that end user is going to use them.

I have a real kind of fundamental philosophical belief that movies are better if everyone gets paid when they work, and if they don’t work, the people who worked on them make a little bit of money, and the people who finance them, they lose, but they don’t lose too much. I believe that that creates better work.
Vaccines have played a fundamental role in eradicating terrible illnesses such as polio, diphtheria, and hepatitis. However, they bring a risk associated with side-effects that are usually temporary and surmountable… but, in very rare cases, can be as severe as getting the same disease you’re trying to be immune to.
Right and wrong are not relative terms. There are fundamental truths. Evil flourishes, but good men continue to battle it – and win.
From the point of view of many scientists, gods represent an explanation for the unknown. Scientists are focused on trying to understand the unknown, so there is a fundamental conflict. That said, some scientists find religion useful and perhaps even fulfilling.

The belief when your mother gives you away is that there’s something deeply wrong. Mothers don’t give babies away. There’s something wrong with me, something unlovable, something seriously flawed in me. It’s a fundamental thing; it’s precognitive. You feel it rather than think it. How could you not?
What I have tried to show is that the scientific attitude implies what I call the postulate of objectivity – that is to say, the fundamental postulate that there is no plan, that there is no intention in the universe.

I would simply not compromise on the fundamental rights of people.
Engagement and integrity are the two most fundamental aspects of building trust; lead from the front by evolving your company strategy, then live your values every day.

I would say there are three important things about graphene. It’s two-dimensional, which is the best possible number for studying fundamental physics. The second thing is the quality of graphene, which stems from its extremely strong carbon-carbon bonds. And finally, the system is also metallic.
The fundamental division of powers in the Constitution of the United States is between voters on the one hand and property owners on the other.
I’ve always believed that the fundamental, driving strategic ethos of the Republican House leadership has been, ‘What do we do to get through the next caucus or conference without getting yelled at?’ We should never assume they have a long game.
