Zero Hedge

Link here. At this link, click on the magnifying glass to zoom in. It will be interesting to see how this plays out ten years from now. My hunch is that there may be many more apps but most will not make good investments. Many of the apps provide services that Walmart, CVS, Target, Amazon, others already provide. My hunch: Hertz, Avis, Enterprise will get into the ride-hailing business.

One of the Best Global Warming Sites


A few too many ads, but if one scrolls through the stories, it is absolutely amazing what we're seeing. Regardless of how this plays out, right now it would be easier to argue "ice ace now" rather than "global warming."

Watts Up With That?

So Well Said

Mainstream Media Colluding With Fake Polls

With regard to the Australian election story linked above, the polls had his opponent winning. From Drudge:

It is obvious that mainstream media is colluding with pollsters reporting fake polls. There is no question in my mind that pollsters are being paid to influence elections. Mainstream media has been quite successful convincing Americans that Russian influence on American political races is a huge problem. In fact, I would argue that fake polls are a much bigger problem. I've yet to see one story on this phenomenon: why so many polls turn out wrong. I did see a story in which two researchers "pulled/retracted" their study in which they suggested the "retirement of its host" from The Daily Show resulted in a 1.1% swing in votes for Trump, in essence giving him the election. That's a start, I guess.

The Book Page

Again, best book ever -- at least for me -- with regard to the American Revolution: Valiant Ambition: George Washington, Benedict Arnold, and the Fate of the American Revolution, Nathaniel Philbrick, c. 2016.

When I read this book (and I'm still reading it) and then hear Buttigieg's pandering to African-Americans regarding Thomas Jefferson, it tells me all I need to know about Buttigieg.. Clearly he is not well-read, and clearly he has not read "the Western Canon."

The Western Canon: the Books and Schools of the Ages, Harold Bloom, c. 1994. in which the author defends the concept of the Western canon by discussing 26 writers whom he sees as central to the canon. Link here. On my top shelf.

The Magazine Page

Almost laughable. After documenting incredibly poor predictions over the centuries, The Atlantic argues that "accurate predictions" [about climate change] are possible. LOL.

Link to parody here.

Diamonds Are Forever

Diamonds Are Forever, Katie Melua

But no comparison: Shirley Bassey and the production is still the best.
