Tidbits #5

Identifying a new virus can be done incredibly quickly. Coronavirus researchers may already be en route to a possible vaccine. Apparently, Russian scientist already created a tool to identify patients.

You can actually see atoms bonding and separating. The tiny event has long eluded researchers, and they have captured it on camera for the first time.

According to the survey by Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors,  of 200 wealthy, charitable families in 28 countries, donation ranged: education-related causes made up 29% of philanthropic dollars spent over the past 12 months, followed by health (14%) arts, culture and sports (10%) and lastly, environmental causes (8%).

Zionist education system: the hatred & brainwashing, the arrogance, the insane impunity from international community of systematic persecuting and dehumanization of Palestinians

The Davos organizers unveiled a revamped manifesto this week, saying a company’s purpose (shareholders) should be to “engage all its stakeholders in shared and sustained value creation.” Truth is “stakeholder capitalism” has been in the forum’s mission since 1973. And the risk is that it will continue to be nothing more than woke-washing.

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) measures are finding their way into portfolios at major asset management firms: You cannot do any accounting if you can’t measure 

In a 1788 essay entitled Federalist No. 65, Alexander Hamilton explained the reasoning behind impeachment: It’s about political offenses and doesn’t only apply to crimes, he explained, and the prosecution is not meant to mirror a criminal trial.

Europe “organized white-collar crime of unimaginable magnitude, : A convoluted scheme that produced two refunds for dividend tax paid on one basket of stocks. That scheme, writes David Segal in the New York Times, led to some $60 billion being drained from 2006 to 2011.

One “eight-hour” bird video designed for cats has earned over 7 million views.

Purchasing-power parity? This notion of PPP theory, is that, in the long run, exchange rates should move towards the rate that would equalise the prices of an identical basket of goods and services in any two countries.⁠ China is by far ahead of every nation: $24 trillion

Coronavirus is one of 7 known viruses that affect humans. Four cause the common cold, and the remaining two are SARS and MERS, which caused two major epidemics.

The world’s oldest asteroid impact might have ended an ice age. The crater is 2.2 billion years old, and is in western Australia.

 

What is left in the behaviors of our World to uplift our morale?

Note: A re-edit of my poem “My Warpy World (2002)”

 

1.   I need to burn off my excess energy,

That stuff I used to have in abundance in my youth.

I burned it bending on desks,

Reading and learning.

About our warped literatures and histories,

Warped theories,

Warped philosophies, of a warped world we created.

 

2.   I now need to stretch time in my old age.

I don’t want time to fly by in a blink:

I am supposed to be scared

Of the imminent end.

 

No, I have to work double shifts to make ends meet.

I need to work harder to fulfil

Newly discovered dreams.
