L’indigence ne se calcule pas en chiffre près: seuls les riches ont des comptables.

Laws change, but the perspective on an issue lives longer. Stay within the law and keep elaborating on the perspective: daydreaming saves you from the current morass

Je lis “La’ ou’ le temps commence et ne finit pas” par Gisèle Kayata Eid ( la soeur de la récente défunte Emilie Nasrallah). J’adore comme elle décrit l’Afrique: le Togo

“The power of intuitive understanding will protect you from harm until the end of your days”. –Lao Tzu. Does it means reflective knowledge and training your experimental mind?

Since 2006, Israel has become a liability to USA administration. With Israel and colonial powers failure in Syria, Israel has become 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 and its survival as a colony is declining quickly.

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to turn out for Saturday’s march in London, as the prospect of a no-deal Brexit draws dangerously closeProtesters call for a second Brexit referendum. 

“Votre attitude démontre que vous n’êtes pas totalement soumis: Donc, on impose des sanctions économique pour toute la population”. Mass sanctions on entire people to punish decisions of a few “leaders”

Several notable Democratic presidential candidates will skip the pro-Israel lobby group’s three-day conference, which begins Sunday in Washington.

Italy signs a Belt and Road deal with China, the first major democracy to join China’s global infrastructure plan (meaning Greece is Not that major in the democratic State), despite US opposition and concerns from other EU nations about growing Chinese clout in the region.

Indonesia  Airline Garuda scrapped its massive Boeing order for 49 Boeing 737 Max 8s. (Boeing never deemed it relevant to warn pilots of the deficiency in its computer system that take control over the pilot manual decisions). (And yet, a few months ago, another Indonesia 737 crashed shortly after taking off)

18th- and 19th-century English wives were “sold” for a variety of payments and beer–by the pint, quart, and gallon–was the most common currency. When divorce was off the table, English couples dissolved their marriages with beer.

Urologists report a surge in the “procedure” during the US college basketball tournament, when men can binge watch at home with ice packs in hand: Yes, March Madness is vasectomy month.

The main factor that allowed Israel to be created and survive for a century is that the majority of the illiterate people in the region were still under the culture (habit) of living the day. They refused to take this nascent colonial implant seriously. As they immigrate, they are faced with this shock: Tomorrow is as important as today and then they succeed. Things are turning around: the Syrian people are planning the future in detail.

While a financial multinational threatens with embargo the less developed States, supported by its powerful government, it really don’t give a damn of the citizens of its original country: Money and profit have no restrictive citizens or smelling race. Money and profit  have no standard particular social value.

California suspends the death penalty. Governor Gavin Newsom will grant a reprieve to the state’s 737 condemned inmates. (A coincidence with Boeing 737)?

George Pell, the most senior Roman Catholic leader, found guilty of sexual abuse. He was sentenced to six years for child sex abuse. The Australian cardinal and former adviser to Pope Francis was convicted in December of molesting choir boys more than two decades ago.

Bacteria adapt quickly to their surroundings, like in dry food

One-tenth of the world’s digital ad fraud originates in India. It costs the industry $1.6 billion.

Why islands and shorelines that experience devastating frequent hurricanes and tsunamis still rebuild at the same places?

Can you spread Covid-19 if you get the vaccine? The short answer is: We don’t know yet. Why?
The first reason for Not knowing is that practically: Vaccines’ priority is preventing exposed individuals from getting sick, so that’s what the clinical trials for Covid-19 shots were designed to determine.
We simply don’t have public health data to answer the question of transmission yet.

The second reason is immunological. From what we know so far, Covid-19 vaccines cause the body to produce a class of antibodies called immunoglobulin G, or IgG antibodies.
These antibodies are heavyweights: They react swiftly to all kinds of foreign entities. They make up the majority of our antibodies, and are confined to the parts of our body that don’t have contact with the outside world, like our muscles and blood.

But to prevent Covid-19 transmission, another type of antibodies could be more important. The immune system that patrols your outward-facing mucosal surfaces—like the nose, throat, lungs, and digestive tract—relies on immunoglobulin A, or IgA antibodies.

People who get sick and recover from Covid-19 produce a ton of these more-specialized antibodies, but we don’t yet know how well existing vaccines incite them.

Because of all that complication, it’s unlikely that immunological research alone will reveal how well vaccines can prevent Covid-19 transmission—at least, not for years.
Until then, community spread is the best way to tell if a vaccine can stop a person from transmitting a virus to others.

One of these strains—scientists call it B.1.1.7—originated in the UK. Viruses in the B.1.1.7. lineages have small modifications on their spike proteins. Instead of one set of amino acids, which are the biological Legos that make proteins, they have others—like swapping out a blue brick for a red one. This building-block switcheroo makes the spike protein better able to attach to our cells and infect them, microbiologist and immunologist David Topham told Quartz.

Lebanon and Jordan States were created before the State of Israel in order to become “buffer zones” for the “security” of the programmed creation of the colonial powers implanted colony of Israel in 1948.

During the Spanish Flu pandemics, starting in 1920, people figured out that wearing a mask is very much a common sense protection. Still the Flu harvested over 20 million around the world. If we say that the global population increased 3 fold since then, should we expect that 60 million should die before Covid gives us a reprieve? With vaccines or no vaccines, since at least 3 billion will never get that vaccine?

Gotta admit it’s really something to see Wall Streeters with a long history of treating our economy as a casino complain about a message board of posters also treating the market as a casino Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez@AOC

Marshall plan? Two years after the war, Europeans were totally down and drowning in poverty. The plan was supposed to have “saved” western Europe, and with extreme difficulty preventing it from rallying communist Russia by extending what corresponded to a month in expense during the war or $5 bn (currently $50 bn). Capitalist USA dispatched its surpluses, monopolized the sea trade, “looted” the minerals in the French colonies and gained global markets for her trades. Effectively, The Aid returned to the USA.

The Elite classes (especially Old Money “robber barons”) in every nation are establishing this malediction “truth” that they are a fatality to accept and bow down to. This monopolistic class own everything, while the other classes, even middle classes, lack of everything to sustain their autonomy. Actually, after every world calamity, it is the middle class that retrograde in “wealth” and blend with the poorer classes.

Just a hypothesis, and a good conjecture too: what we eat and how we eat and how much we eat is a minor factor to obesity. Tha main factor is the kinds of physical exercise we undertake to allow the brain to pick up the nutrient the body needs and what to excrete. Physical exercises shake the brain out of its torpeur of minding only the necessary sugar it needs for mental tasks.

So far, all US citizens of “color” and “immigrants” who acceded to the highest political positions behaved as “sheep” during their tenure and were crushed by the deep institutions, including Obama and Colin Powell and the score of women.

My deepest wish is that Vice President Kamala Harris will stand tall for international values and reverse this “sheep” trend and prevent Biden from engaging in pre-emptive wars, under all kinds of lame excuses from the “establishment”

The Incompetent Infants in charge of the community: Don’t seek management or leadership if fishing, video games, or playing golf are your greatest aspirations. Anyone who thinks responsibility is easy is irresponsible. You learn to embrace responsibility when you learn the value of doing hard things. 

The mother has the earphones in her ears, listening to whatever her mobile is saying. The daughter is communicating in what looks like silent/sign language. The mother seems to get what her daughter is saying.

A beauty that astonishes you after she is out of sight, and then reflecting on this kind of beauty.

When she trod on mud, mud is nicer. when she run in the rain, rain is a welcomed silver. when she picks u a toad, this creature looks the most lovely among its species.

Daughter, those sorts of jealous Gods you are mentioning are all folly and lies of poet and cleric. Go figure out how these two meet in the same functions.

We have discussed this folly of “jealous Gods” a hundred times: The Divine Nature is without jealousy.

Do Not expect to live beyond 85 anymore. If it is Not just from recurrence of various pandemics, it is the Stress generated from dashed hopes for Return to global Normalcy. Program your life accordingly.

I read 3 books at the “same time”. Otherwise I get bored. If I am pressured to focus on a single book, pretty soon I realize that the author is trying to cram the book with faked ideas, faked emotions… and rarely the good personal experiences.

If you can avoid the pressures of multinational education monopoly, don’t take the IQ test and other tests that are supposed to evaluate you aptitudes and intelligence. You do share all the attribute of high IQ people: bored from society, bored at school, never happy at any paid job, self-discipline is to be desired, and feel that I’m better than anyone else except in manual work and group sports.

Travel in 2021 is going to be a stop-and-go journey, as governments and businesses try to figure out an equitable plan to get things back to normal.  Be prepared to have the vaccin Passport on you

The Agro food industries add around 30 kinds of additives, most of them are chemically poisonous. A few of them contains nanoparticles, which means they can cross the intestines and flow with the blood and degrade many organs ( cancers). Eventually, these nano-ingredients will be banned and the multinational will be unable to contest the electronic microscopes (the power of technology). For example, the dioxyde of Titanium or additive E71, just to “whiten” the product.

I conjecture that all the facts, observations, experiments., philosophy… will Not tell us anything “sustainable” of what is life and the universe. We need to know: How the majority, in any ethnic group, likes to conceive the nature of Life and the Universe? This knowledge is fundamental to evaluate the evolution of human “Emotional Intelligence

US usually does threaten The rest of the world for “peaceful transfer of power“. The rest of the world Leaders and officials expressed shock and disappointment as the US Capitol was invaded and congressmen locked up in their chambers.

Everything radiates: Trees and even stones, rocks, and our body radiates. Basement of homes radiates noxious chemical gases. The skin, our first defensive line against nocife radiations, will eventually degrade. And we gets older and the radiations will reach our organs and kill their cells and disturb their functioning.

As oceans will invade large swath of lands in the coming decades, generally urban regions, temperature in cities will also increase twice that of rural regions. A double calamity.

Identical twins don’t have identical genes. New research found an average of 5.2 genetic mutations per set.

Is there any actual difference between the Moderna and Pfizer versions? I know they are built on the same principle, but what about efficacy, side effects, etc.? None. Both of which are based on a novel application of mRNA. The question remains: which of the varieties of vaccines needs “normal” low cold environment to suit countries that lacks very cold facilities to transfer the vaccine?

I love Voltaire: his sarcasm transcend centuries and ages. I believe sarcasm is a potent means to provide behaviorals alternatives to customs and tradition.

Le plus habile des trésoriers n’a rien avoir avec le plus integre.

Les services rendus restent dans l’antichambre. Les soupçons entrent dans le cabinet des ministres.

La joie d’une personne heureuse serait une insulte. Mais deux malheureux ensemble sont deux arbrisseaux faibles qui s’appuient pour se fortifier contre l’orage.

Le roi de Serendib savait qu’on le pillait: Il n’avait pu changer le mode établie de partager les revenus. La petite moitié “inégale” revenait a lui/le peuple. Rien ne faisait de changer le tresorier: l’administration ne changait guere.

A lady professor of piano accompanied home one of her little young girl. She counselled her at the door: “Don’t forget to press harder your 4th finger“. I know the 4th is a weak finger, and that is why women opt for the third one.

Soon, the “pseudo-citizens” Lebanese will be considered as ripe by the UN to apply as “refugees” in their own country. We will be eligible/entitled to apply to many Nations for “residency status” and be invited for countless interviews. A year later, we will be assigned and shipped to one of the Nations that respect human rights and value dignity for every person.

It would be fairer for the UN to transfer the malignant sectarian/feudal/civil war mafia “leaders” and let us have a second more equitable try to establish a secular State, to all.

Frankly, I feel we are too rotten, to the bones, to manage such a feat of instituting a secular State: if we have failed during a century, then we are Not fit to be extended one of those “second chances” or hundred of times.

In the meantime (entretemps), the Lebanese, who want full citizenship, have to continue doing their due diligence to kick out the nefarious for life “leaders’, in order to earn a “spot under the sun”

Israel: Land of God El, the all incompassic Canaan God. Shekel: the currency that Babylon Empire used. Shalom: Aramaic salutation that means “Peace be upon you”. Hebrews: Al 3obraniyeen (those who crossed): the bedouin tribes which crossed the desert to settle in the desertic region in south Palestine Al Nakab… The language Hebrew is a slang of the Aramaic language. Jehova (Yahwa) was the warrior God of the tribes. The Canaanites in Jerusalem allowed them to build a tiny temple whenever they needed these tribes to be paid as mercenaries. In peaceful time, this temple was neglected and the tribes patronized Canaan temples. We can go on and on…

Life swims in a river of bacterias, more of the good ones than bad bacterias. Death floats on this stagnant river, as good bacterias stop feeding it.

Youth generates good bacteria. Older ages requires constant Infusion of good bacterias. Take care that your vital organs are functional and healthy.

Evil emotions never dies or sleeps: it is a cause in everyday occurrences. Goodness is a rare event and craves long periods of hibernations: it needs strong catalysts to wake up. When Goodness resurrects from its lethargy, it lights up the nights, like those flies that live for a day, just for a night, and retreats to its cave.

The total bankruptcy of the state of Lebanon, and at all levels, goes deeper than its totally rotten political and economic system. A century ago, the Lebanese were hard working, a value-added population, like the current Syrians and Palestinians. It is No longer the case.

The colonial occupation of Syria and Palestine was for the keep because of the value-added hard working people, like the Indians during the British colonialism of India. Lebanon is currently a sink tank, Not worth a dime for investment, if the Syrian refugees return to Syria.

London lost almost all its European share business. On the first day of trading after Brexit was finally completed, $7.4 billion moved out of the City and into Amsterdam, Frankfurt, and Paris.

With a worthless bolivar, president Nicolás Maduro says paper money will eventually disappear. Venezuela is actively envisioning an all-digital economy. China can help with its digital technology. State of Lebanon, totally bankrupt, should be ripe for this alternative

And the Beltway battle cry of “look to the future, not the past!” is what all political power systems tell their subjects to do when they want to flush their own crimes down the memory hole.

Oh Palestinians, Jordanians, Lebanese, Syrians, Iraqis: You should Not cow down to the colonial powers directives that you are living on individual State Islands and have to fend individually by yourselves. You are one nation, one people and you have got to think, feel and act accordingly. One for all and all for one against the forces that want you isolated, weak and taken apart in our existential future.

Great awakening of the troubling times ahead. Walmart is temporarily pulling guns and ammunition from shelves. Citing rising tensions after police fatally shot a Black man in Philadelphia on Monday, the retailer will require customers to specifically request the items for purchase. Approximately half of Walmart’s 4,700 US stores sell firearms.

Global Debt reached $280,000 bn, mostly printing money with no reserves of any kinds. The many next generations will have to resolve this “funny money” game.

Stephen Hawking wrote: “If you stacked the new books being published next to each other, at the present rate of production you would have to move at ninety miles an hour just to keep up with the end of the line.” For each of these books of, “famous” profitable authors, there’s a cover, carefully designed, to catch the reader’s, and hopefully buyer’s, eye.

French colonialism did the most harm than all the other colonial powers to the people in the Near-East. French institutions have been suckering to Zionist movements since 1870 and preempting their demands all the way.

All billionaires have shares in pharmaceutical companies, in oil companies, in chemical companies… What is worrying is that, eventually, most vaccines (covid-19 and others) will be laced with 5G microchips to control and monitor world population by the superpowers. Mind you that Taiwan is the main manufacturer of those microchips.

Do you trust covid-19 vaccine? I don’t. Especially when they force it on you. and more horrifying, when the pharmaceutical companies are liability-free if you die or are maimed…(The PERP ACT of Trump administration)

The night is much longer than the day. Not just in duration but in exhaustion. Trying to sleep and waking up frequently and filling the void. By day break, you feel that you had done all your mental work

Chileans, in a landslide 78% of voters in the referendum agreed to rewrite their constitution. They scrapped the country’s dictatorship-era 1980 constitution after mass protests last year over inequality.

A few sentences from the Memoirs of Jean Jacques Rousseau:

The democratic process, allowing the base to vote, has the advantage to open up freedom of opinions, debates and a wider communication among the members.

The trustee system (Senate, representative chambers, majles Oumanaa2) might look good logically because a gathering of educated and experienced members, and might be the best alternative at the beginning, but it usually becomes obsolete to the base and inevitably leads to dictatorship of a certain political class of elders with vested interests.

If there’s an electoral college tie, it goes to the House. At that point, according to the 12th amendment, the newly elected House chooses the president among the three leading candidates. The new Senate, meanwhile, gets to pick the vice-president from the same three candidates. My question is: how tie is being considered numerically?

Researchers say cortisol hormone levels in earwax can transform diagnostics for people with depression. Not an indicator for Stress too?

It is impossible to contemplate the Zionists and US extremist Protestants still living under this heap of crap of fake knowledge, myths and racist ideology. Israel is surviving under this mound of shit and the world community is forbidden to criticize its apartheid policies.

When those States drop “La Ilaha illa Allah” from their flags, when they drop from their Constitutions that Shari3at is the foundation of the laws, when they drop that a religious sect is the religion of the State, when they drop the concept that women’ brain is half that of men…Then, you may ask me “How do you foresee the future for these people?”

The conventional-minded say that they don’t want to shut down the discussion of all ideas, just the bad ones. There are two reasons why we need to be able to discuss even “bad” ideas.

The uprisings of the “Arab Spring” in Tunisia and Egypt have so far produced anarchy in Libya, a civil war in Syria, greater autocracy in Bahrain and resumed dictatorial rule in Egypt.  (All these failures thanks to US/Saudi Kingdom/Israel/France ) who don’t want changes and democracy in the region)

Civil disobedience means you decided to adopt the strategy of confronting the system instead of running away from problems to easier alternatives.

Last night I was watching Hezbollah channel Al Manar. It told of the route the Umayyad army travelled with the “sabayat“, the prisoners of what was left of Hussein army. It said that most of the semi-nomadic tribes living in Syria withdrew with the defeated Byzantine army. It failed to say that the barely 7,000 fighters who came from the desert could Not defeat the Byzantine army if the tribes in Syria didn’t join it. A historical decision to ally with an army with No urban laws and civilization. Humanity civilization degraded as it reverted for 1,500 years to Law and Order based on religious dogmatic concepts and absolute monarchies, both Christian and Muslim.

L’Immortalité de l’âme est un problème attachant pour le genre humain. Si on apprend a concevoir une âme a toutes les autres genres qui vient et pullulent la terre, le racism aurait-il pris racines?

Il faut du courage pour oser braver les cris du vulgaire.

Le dernier moment (de la mort) s’arrête toujours pour nous tromper

Ce n’est que dans l’exile qu’on évoque l’enfance et qu’on essaie de restituer la réalité’ perdue. Pas d’autobiographie sans être exilé dans l’espace et le temps.

“Les idéologues du Christianisme n’ont-ils pas voulu en faire un système d’astronomie?” (Napoleon). En fait, toutes les religions antiques relève d’astronomie, même en ce jour des religions des peuple isolés.

Bonaparte a dérangé jusqu’à l’ avenir. L’esclavage que Napoléon avait façonné la société a l’obéissance passive, et son despotisme descendra sur nous en forteresses.
