Tidbits #31

The widening gulf between health and wellness? “The promises of strange elixirs and fine powders feel more deranged and seductive than ever.”

“But that life may be restored to the animal, an opening must be attempted in the trunk of the trachea, into which a tube of reed or cane should be put; you will then blow into this, so that the lung may rise again and take air.”—Belgian anatomist Andreas Vesaliu in his 1543 treatise De Humani Corporis Fabrica, writing about the mechanics of breathing used in today’s ventilators

Bidet usage is spreading as supermarket shelves of bathroom tissue are depleted. That’s no problem for those who prefer to clean their nether regions with water from bidets.

Ingenius creative solution. Vietnam set up rice ATMs. The machines distribute free rice in cities across the country, including a 24/7 dispenser in Ho Chih Minh City.

Panama papers? The indirect financial gimmick for the US multinational financial conglomerates to siphon in all the wealth of the world into the US financial treasury. The Rothschild conglomerate is the top of the pyramid and control how money should be distributed

On a trip and in a group of people who supercially know each other, a few members forget that each member is different. A few ignore some people as non-existent, some do not pay attention for the requests of others… Pretty soon, divergences emergent for Not giving each person his own due to opinions and rights.

In China, one coronavirus hospital ward served as the setting for an experimental program in which robots tended to patients’ needs. These bots can clean floors, deliver food, and even boost the morale of COVID-19 patients. 

Don’t count on permanence of waterfalls.  A sinkhole redirected water of a massive waterfall away from the San Rafael Waterfall in Ecuador.

I wrote in 2009: “Banks re-invest your safely net money in secured government bonds with outrageous interest loans ,extended to other customers who patronize the same bank.  Banks are the perfect financial sawing machine (up and down) with other people’s money. Banks are such icons that governments feel obligated to save banks, even investment banks from bankruptcy, by shamelessly propagating the myth of a most ridiculous excuse:  Banks are the “ideal oil” or lubricating medium to keeping society functioning for the capitalist system!

Les grandes puissances coloniales ont l’intention d’hypothéquer l’avenir du Nord Syrie, riche en hydrocarbure (25% des reserves de terre), surtout dans la region de Al Malikiyah (Rumaillah) pres de la riviere Tigre.

Since 2006, Israel has become a liability to USA administration. With their failure in Syria, Israel became a total liability. The USA and Israel are living in a Bubble of faked news and misinformation: All the people in the Middle -East, including the leeches of leaders, know by now that Israel is our existential enemy.

“In this age of ‘parenting as guilt,‘ please spread the guilt equally. Make fathers feel as bad as mothers.” Novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s commencement speech is funny, simply stated, and empowering.

The UN is asking for $2 billion to tackle the pandemic in conflict zones. During the past week, Syria, Libya, and Gaza all reported their first Covid-19 cases. The United Nations makes it clear that if the disease is not controlled in these places, it will affect all of us.

US senators might vote on a massive coronavirus relief bill of a $2 trillion net impact on the US economy. An amount they could have afforded if Bush Jr. didn’t invade Iraq in 2003

Grand children look more like their ancestors: No need to display your beautiful mothers

Illusory superiority” cognitive bias? People who know the least are often convinced they know the most.  Social psychologists David Dunning and Justin Kruger

The driving force to our survival is this sense of Pity. We extend a helping hand for someone to make it through the day, emotionally and financially.

We try to substitute the term Pity for Kindness or Responsibility, though responsibility is an acquired quality. If you still consider Pity as a bad connotation, then you are a pitiful person. This time around it is the worst of bad connotations.

 

Pity: The driving force to our survival

We are surrounded with terms such as Act of Kindness, Act of Compassion, Act of Love…

These terms could fit with people we know and also like and respect.

And what about strangers?

Hundreds upon hundreds of people we don’t know had pity on us, before we got cocky to consider Pity as a bad connotation.

We avoid like the plague Act of Pity.

The Samaritan had pity on the wounded and robbed person. Actually, these kind of people have pity on living creatures and Not just human kind.

The driving force to our survival is this sense of Pity. We extend a helping hand for someone, so he can make it through the day, emotionally and financially.

So many time, as we were growing up, people aided us, and Not because we were cute, funny, or talented or saw potentials in us.

We are in need of tenderness, care, disoriented, frustrated, can’t see the end of the horizon, what we should be doing, where to go, how to behave, how to communicate…

So many times we were isolated, almost famished, no place to spend the night, where to go when sick, penniless, at the end of the roll…

And somehow, we managed to survive the day. And we refuse to recall who helped us, how we were rescued.

Hundreds upon hundreds of strangers came to our rescue, and we never had the courage to remember a few of these Samaritans.

We try to substitute pity for responsibility, though responsibility is an acquired quality.

Pity should be elevated to the highest great level of connotation.

All other “good terms” be degraded one level.

If you still consider Pity as a bad connotation, then you are a pitiful person. And this time around it is the worst of bad connotations, a “Pitiful person“.

Note: You watch animal documentaries and you notice that carnivorous big feline attack the fallen behind in a herd or looking Not fit to follow the herd. No, it is Not to salvage their energy, it is “Out of Pity“, like this term or Not.
