Tidbits #53

Is that how retirement should be? Waking up at 4:30, taking an hour of walk/slow jogging, then have a leisurely breakfast of fruits and coffee/Nescafe while reading for another hour on the balcony, then working for another hour on your blog and commenting on Fb… All these events are facts. The illusions sneak in afterwards

As we learn to see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.

Explain this to me in layman terms: Tesla has never made an annual profit and yet surge in share prices means that the California company has a market value of nearly $210 billion, and edges ahead of Japanese rival Toyota. It is the Federal government skewing the due process in investment

Anthropause? A proposed new term to describe the global halt in human activity due to the pandemic.

Originally composed in 2014, the protest music “The Seven Last Words of the Unarmed,” by Joel Thompson arranged the dying words of seven Black men killed by police into a classical composition based on Haydn’s “The Seven Last Words of Christ.” 

This week, India banned 59 Chinese apps, including the popular video-sharing platform TikTok, in an attempt to “safeguard” its mobile and internet users. Narendra Modi’s quit Weibo on Wednesday

I used to visit the ruins of the deads. I am paying visits to the ruins of the living.

Lebanon is a striking example of an anomie political system: most the politicians revert to business men, during their long tenure, and own most of the companies in the country. Our politicians, stooges to the civil war militia/mafia leaders, have been for so long in power and elections (democratically or postponed for various reasons).

J’aimerais commettre les folies de l’âge voisin du berceau

A giant blue star has vanished from the sky. It could have become a black hole or… it could just be hiding behind dust.
Gold deposit in Egypt: located in the country’s southeast, is thought to contain 1 million ounces (28,350 kg) of the good stuff.

I think Trump liked this kid concept: if Covid is killed with soap then why a vaccine? Maybe Trump is jumping to one alternative like introducing foamed soap in the lungs and remove the solution as when we have pneumonia?

I have this hypothesis: those who received the flu vaccines for a couple of years will have higher probability to survive a Corona contamination. My conjecture is the immune system will react far more quickly before The C sets in

The Neo-Zionistsstrategic centers” in USA are in fact running Israel society choices: There are No good options for Israelis in order to vote “democratically”. Israel is pressured to be kept in a state of constant war and to increase its apartheid laws

“The great avenues of our larger cities were made extremely picturesque in the dusk of evening by the endless line of bicyclists whose lanterns in the darkness produced the vivid effect of a river of coloured fire.”An 1890s observer of America’s first bicycle boom

American suffragist Susan B. Anthony once said that the bicycle did “more to emancipate women than anything else in the world.”

Oxymoron terms like “Free Trade, Free Market, Free Expression, Free Sex…” What is free in these expressions? And how they are that free?

Harvard MIT are suing the Trump administration over new visa rules that force international students taking online classes to leave the country

The current US national debt is over $26 trillion, and while Congress has approved roughly $3 trillion of coronavirus-related spending, only around $350 billion was earmarked for public health and testing

Independent auditors issued a scathing report on Facebook’s civil rights policies. They called out the platform’s “vexing and heartbreaking decisions” that prioritize free speech above all else.

Doubling down on some pre-pandemic tactics for private car  usage:
  • Reward those who don’t use a private car
  • Subsidize bicycle sales by giving citizens vouchers
  • Make public transit free forever
  • Propose new car-free bridges
  • Add bike racks to buses
  • Make bike shares part of the public system
  • Expand time-saving bus lanes
  • Resist the urge to make parking easier or free

It is the deformed and handicapped babies that were sacrificed in mass ceremony in order to alleviate parents gilt and to tame the intransigence of mothers in front of the pressure of the community

Minority ethnic groups in China are experiencing State Eugenics Laws since 1995; the Chinese genetic physician has simply to state that the expected baby of the minority parents is found to be physically or mentally handicapped to sterilize the parents; reactions are lukewarm; as they say “it is economics, stupid”

If paying attention to your breathing for a couple of minutes is so hard, how getting curious of how smoking taste and feel is tagged as a simpler task?
