Tidbits and notes posted on FB and Twitter. Part 242

Note: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. I pay attention to researched documentaries and serious links I receive. The page of backlog opinions and events is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains a month-old events that are worth refreshing your memory

All discoveries and technological development end up being considered for military purposes, if Not initiated by the military institutions.

A human soldier is frequently considered too human for those rascals in headquarters: the soldier must be “Augmented” whenever possible to behave as a robot, like those trained with ISIS and Evangelical Zionist fundamentalist

I had a night dream. We are in the middle of the semester. This university prof. is asking me a question during class. He spoke quickly and I couldn’t hear the last words. I asked him to repeat the question and he didn’t raise the volume of his voice. I asked him again to repeat to the astonishment of the students and the flabbergasted prof. And I ‘m closing and opening my ears with both hands as if my ears were shut close. I suspected he was saying ” How do you feel about this course” but was not sure and I says: “Fine. I like it better when you invite me to the blackboard”.

I had to force myself wide awake to interpret this dream. Most probably, a few experience high blood pressure when under stress and literally can’t hear. In my case, a combination of blood tension and a question “out of context or subject matter” exacerbated the situation. Most would faint as a response to these kinds of conditions to avoid a sense of shame. Does this dream telling me that I’m a strong minded and confident guy to dare express honestly my lack of hearing the question repeatedly?

Do you know that the USA export one million containers of just old paper to be recycled somewhere else?

Otherwise, the monster cargo will return empty from the USA. Actually 6 out of 10 “made in the USA” enterprises export compressed garbage of plastic bottles, tissues, cartons and ferrailles? China alone import $5.6 bn of these US garbage, out of $18 bn in total from somewhere else, to be recycled into new products to USA supermarkets.

It would be funny if China levy a tax import on USA garbage after its latest restrictions on Quality of imported garbage. USA is counting on Viet Nam, India, Malaysia and Bangladesh to come to the rescue for its garbage exportation.

Confucius: “I will work on the correct usage of the terminology in the language.  If terminology is not widely correctly understood and uniform, discourse will be disorderly, orders are wrongly misinterpreted, and consequently, most orders stop being executed as intended.  If the forms and rituals are not conveniently stabilized then, social relationship are distorted and customs and rituals neglected, justice is not adequately rendered, and the kingdom is weakened.  Any new law must be enunciated in the clearest of terms and never proclaimed without thorough discussions, lest tyranny shows its ugly head”

Confucius wrote: “Respect and work on yourself.  How can you govern and guide your family and community if you neglect working on your limitations, weaknesses, and potentials?

At around that period of Confucius teaching, Pythagoras is founding a secret cult based on the magic of numbers; Buddha is preaching his message in India, and Darius, the all-powerful monarch of Persia, has conquered most of the Mediterranean Sea countries, including Egypt.

Are you able to express your spirit and your culture in a foreign language? The main role of slang:  You are using slang in your “mother tongue” that connote deeper meaning and feeling than in any foreign language

Une petite fille  du Sodan épiée par un vautour


Ce cliché saisissant représente une fillette soudanaise aux portes de la mort : émaciée, épuisée et affamée, la petite fille git sur le sol tandis qu’un vautour attend patiemment sa mort pour se nourrir de son cadavre… Le photographe et lauréat du prix Pulitzer, Kevin Carter, s’est suicidé quatre mois plus tard, rongé par la culpabilité de ne l’avoir pas aide’ quand les journeaux se sont dechaines sur son attitude “I was just doing my job“.

Ce qu’il y a de miraculeux dans cette histoire est que la petite fille photographiée a finalement survécu !
