Tidbits #78

2020 Physics Laureate Andrea Ghez: nobelprize_org “I feel more passionate about the teaching side of my job than I have ever been, because it’s so important to convince the younger generation that their ability to question and think is crucial to the future of the world.”
In 1995 she wrote the children’s book ‘You Can Be a Woman Astronomer’ inspiring children to become scientists when they grow up.

The children of Palestine and those living in shanty towns of refugee camps, are systematically denied the basic rights of happiness, and of enjoying periods of laziness and boredom. The occupiers made sure to rob these kids of the basic feelings and their innate innocence. They are more mature than other children, and yet, more receptive to all kinds of feelings and emotions. The same goes with Syrian refugees and the poorest of Lebanese

US presidential candidate spending is also only a fraction of the total cost of the US election: One study estimates that a record $10.8 billion will be spent on this year’s vote. Barack Obama had spent $13 per voter. This is way too cheap compared to what election cost in Lebanon per “voter”.

South Korea military spending might surpass France, UK, and Japan in a couple of years, due to its high rate compared to its GNP.

Deloitte and Accenture are among the US government’s largest outside contractors of any kind, paying them billions of dollars for services like management consulting and assistance in modernizing technology.

Solid atomic hydrogen allows sound waves to travel 36 km per second, about twice as fast as through even ultra-dense diamond.

The primary reason the US typically has such a large trade imbalance is that it has the world’s reserve currency. People all over the world want to hold dollars. When foreigners sell goods to people in the US, they don’t always use that money to immediately buy stuff from American companies, but rather, because the dollar is such a safe asset, they keep it. That allows Americans to consume more than they produce.

Usually, people who talk too much are considered weak in the mind. And yet, if you fail to learn how to talk and talk well you will Not be going too far.

Election madness had a different flavor in the early days of the US: Electioneering involved lots of free booze, like the 144 gallons of rum, punch, hard cider, and beer a young George Washington used to woo voters in his second run for local office. (He believed his first attempt failed because he didn’t dole out enough of the good stuff.)

In 1965, the US enacts the Voting Rights Act, finally taking action to prevent racists from denying Black Americans and other minority groups the right to vote.

Lebanon claims that its army is apolitical? Why? Because the army has No right to vote. I don’t think this is a viable reason. The officers are assimilating during their career all kinds of chauvinism and sectarianism. And you discover these facts after they retire: they all wanted to be promoted and they refrained from outright opinions publicly for fear of Black reports.

How do you evaluate the experience of this cinema Star? Why do you have to attach Star to actresses? So she won’t antagonize me. What? nowadays, the behinds of non-famous are Stars. (Late Youssef Shaheen)

If you have talent in attracting positive opinions and large audience, a few truthful positions may compensate for the dozens of lies you disseminate: No attraction of the public, no roots for any valuable position.

Faire la solde des lingeries Fines? Have you heard of lingerie epaisse, non-sexy, non-chic, couleur suspecte …? Et cet homme, accompagné par sa maitresse, tous les yeux des femmes le fusillant hainesement, marchant sur ses pieds, une bête traquee’…

The nastiest of calamities during this confrontation on May 2008, Hezbollah against Seniora PM: the burning of the achieve of “Khaleek bil bayt” by Wehbi. Most TV interviews with cultured authors and poets were burned, such as Adonis, Youssef Shaheen…  Do you think those who burned the Old TV station of Al Moustakbal knew of the presence of the archive? Those who claim they are the bastion of our culture?

Et si il n’y avait pas de prevue de mort? Ca viendra tout de meme, la mort. Meme si la Court International de Justice (pour Rafic Hariri) durerait un siècle?

Titus a quitte’ Berenice, reine de Palestine, un siècle après JC. Titus a cesse d’aimer Berenice. Titus est mort, finalement. La question demeure: Pouquoi Titus a cesse d’aimer Berenice? Plus grave encore: Est-ce vrai que Berenice aimait toujours Titus, avant ou après la grande affaire?

Today, my eyes got wet: I read beautiful passages. I don’t recall ever crying: lack of imagination or feelings? Better late than never: I think that I’m recapturing some of my lost capacity for imagination and feelings.

Que fait l’Art pour nous? Il met en forme et rend visibles a nos senses nos emotions et appose ce cachet d’ éternite qui incarne l’universalite des affects humaines. L’Art immortel genere l’emotion sans le desir ou la convoitise.

Qu’est ce que cette histoire de centaines de noeuds que forment la psychologie des hommes? Vous croyez que les psychanalystes savent quelque chose a la topologie?

Les grands (princes and presidents…), que les moins grands dedaignent, sont poutant heureux s’ils deviennent leurs gendres.

Qu’il y a peu d’humains et que le monde est desert? Mais pouquoi les gens sont mechants? Ou pretend l’etre pour qu’on leur fiche la paix?
