Pop culture illiterate.

We are all part of this biological entity called Earth.

The more I learn, the more I know I don't know. This is OK. Nobody can be an expert in everything. Lean on each other’s expertise.

Grok all the hues, shades, tints, tones, and intensities of everything you encounter and learn. Nothing is back and white, and even shades of gray often fail.

“The 413 texts between Terrence Bradley and Ashleigh Merchant, an attorney for one of Trump’s co-defendants, reveal months of communications between the two, underscoring the extent to which Bradley assisted Merchant’s pursuit of evidence to back up claims and her top prosecutor, Nathan Wade, engaged in an improper romantic relationship.”

The argument that Trump doesn't have enough cash to pay his fraud penalty is garbage.
He turned his ill-gotten gains into real estate assets. What if he had turned them into artworks or crypto or gold bars? Liquidate those assets and make him cough it up. It shouldn't matter where or how he's hidden his money.

🤭👉🏼 “#Trump offered NY appeals court a bond of only $100 mil to pause the more than $450 million penalty he faces in his civil fraud case, a clear sign that the former president lacks the $ to cover the full amount.

..also asked to pause enforcement of finan penalty & wide range of other punishments the judge levied.” #legal

Actually, it would have only changed the court, judge, and jury selection area. He would have still faced the same charges and prosecutors.

real argument right now:

...problems in society today predate capitalism by thousands of years. Capitalism didn't create greed.

real answer:
emotionally stunted folks allowed greed to motivate them.

And cultures…that are not very emotionally developed …allowed those folks rise to power.

It's is the lack of emotional development in people -that is ACTIVELY discouraged by patriarchy and militaries everywhere that is closer to the root problem, IMO.

how do you think that will go over?

Hubble Space Telescope skipped a test, and the improper mirror grind wasn't noticed until it was in space.

At one job, we were required to design and make the test procedures and fixtures first. Often the design would change due to what we figured out while making them. In the end we made much more robust equipment.

to issue executive order aimed at protecting Americans’ sensitive data from and other ‘hostile countries’

The measure targets the business of selling people’s personal information, which the White House said could be used “to track Americans (including military service members), pry into their personal lives," and be passed on to foreign intelligence.

We've seen that missions to the Moon have very short lifespans. As soon as the two-week-long lunar night sets in, temperatures drop so low rovers and landers can't keep their batteries warm, ending their missions. A new paper proposes that a spacecraft in a halo orbit on the far side of the Moon could stay in perpetual sunlight and then beam power wirelessly to rovers and landers, helping them survive the lunar night and communicate from the far side.

I met him back in 1983 during the Monaco Grand Prix. I had to tell him I was thoroughly taken. Typical for guys I met back then. Was it the Ferrari red dress, the fashion model body, or the calico hair? Who knows? I had him listed as interesting, respectful, and beautiful mind in my notes. That last one "beautiful mind" was rare for me to mention about anybody and is likely the only reason I wrote anything down about him.

Look at the cycle of retail chains, and remember mom's and grandma's stores are not seen as hip by youth. So if a retail giant wants to survive, it must reinvent it's self, including rebranding to a new name. Sears and Kmart merging was doomed. They should have started new chains under new names to reach out to the younger consumers.

Report on one of the earliest known circular plazas in #Andean #SouthAmerica & one of the earliest examples of #megalithic ceremonial #architecture in the Americas. This is constructed of large free-standing & vertically placed megalithic stones - located in #Cajamarca basin of northern #Peruvian #Andes. This construction method has never before been reported in the Andes & is #distinct from other monumental circular plazas in the region.
