Tidbits and notes posted on FB and Twitter. Part 213

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

The best approach to explain the succession of civilizations and Empires in the Fertile Crescent (in Lebanon, Palestine and Syria or Phoenicia, Canaan, Aram) that raided and conquered the Near East civilizations is the analogy of survival among the lions and lionesses empires or warlike empires versus settled and wealthy empires.

Alan Greenspan, Chairman of the Federal Reserve from 1987 to 2006, stated at the annual Dinner of Francis Boyer Lecture of The American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research on December 5, 1996:

“Augmenting concerns about the Federal Reserve is the perception that we are a secretive organization, operating behind closed doors, not always in the interests of the nation as a whole. This is regrettable, and we continuously strive to alter this mis-perception.”

Quinoa, drought-resistant crop, contains a toxic compound called saponins, a bitter component that’s used by the plant to ward off predators. It isn’t actually a grain (it’s part of the goosefoot family, related to spinach and beets. Protein content of quinoa is 18% versus 8% in rice

Toxic compound called saponins in Quinoa needs to be removed before consumption, which can be accomplished by polishing or washing the grain, which makes processing it expensive. (The polishing process also reduces the fiber of the grain, lowering its protein, vitamin, and mineral levels).

“The Peter principle” applies to all public institutions when any employee in a hierarchy rises to the level of his or her own incompetence.

Ca ne vaut rien d’insister pour que quelqu’un voit la realite’ en face: l’important est d’avoir un sourire serain aux levres

Si notre imagination est puissante de se souvenir des bons moments, les mauvais ne formeront que de reperes et contrastes

Je passe le plus clair de mon temps a l’obscurcir

Quand on se prend pour quelqu’un, on oublit qu’on fond on est plusieurs.
