So, where are these 2.4 billion people going to live that is not within the coastline? I call it the re-settling of the planet. In the streets near you in 35 years.

I'm talking about "beyond probiotic" supp. for microbiome restoration after antibiotics. The silly gut bacteria sp. self-appointed experts push, such as B. infantis found in the guts of breast feeding infants. Give me a break! Med Drs ask โ‚ฌ1 per probio gel-cap ad infinitum.

It took a week to get the right phrase to secure a vaccination appointment (my name is Rumplestiltskin? ๐Ÿคœ๐Ÿฟ ). Then it took 90 minutes of dial dial dial dial to get my foot in the door of the jammed call-in line. Still another 30 minutes to talk to scheduler.

Myself quoting myself remembering about memory.

But via The Memory Palace of Matteo Ricci

By Jonathan D. Spence.

That's a wonderful book, wonderfully written.

In my mind it pairs nicely with The Golden Peaches of Samarkand: A Study of T'ang Exotics
by Edward H. Schafer

But this will be essential โ€” again and again to run over rapidly in the mind all the original backgrounds in order to refresh the images.

or soiled with mud or smeared with red paint, so that its form is more striking, or by assigning certain comic effects to our images, for that, too, will ensure our remembering them more readily. The things we easily remember when they are real we likewise remember without difficulty when they are figments, if they have been carefully delineated.

We ought, then, to set up images of a kind that can adhere longest in the memory. And we shall do so if we establish likenesses as striking as possible; if we set up images that are not many or vague, but doing something; if we assign to them exceptional beauty or singular ugliness; if we dress some of them with crowns or purple cloaks, for example, so that the likeness may be more distinct to us; or if we somehow disfigure them, as by introducing one stained with blood

At a workshop he did at Fountain Street Church in Grand Rapids, MI.

It was based on "Iron John" and about some kind of reclaiming masculinity to be protectors rather than rulers, basically. And when you are going berserk, go away from society, so you don't hurt anyone.

There was this Italian storyteller with him who was some kind of wonderful.

She told Beauty and the Beast and lapsed into Italian and everyone understood perfectly. Pentecost for Unitarians.

Many scripts I've written run stable in production. Services are running because I have read texts and docs, installed servers and maintained software and hardware but I still feel I'm not an expert at anything.

Maybe because the more I know about a subject, the more I realise how much more I could know. And that will always be more than I already know.

We don't look back at how much we've already learned, but look forward at how big the mountain still is and always will be.

Kenyan MPs Refuse to Sign Kenya-UK Trade Pact

Members of Parliament are accusing unknown officials of "sneaking in" documents that had not been tabled in parliament. They said that until they are fully aware of the details of the Economic Partnership Agreement between Kenya and the UK, they will not ratify the agreement. Some of the annexures missing from the report

I heartily recommend you don't wait for graduation to start job hunting. A quick learning & trustworthy prospect is needed everywhere. The first job & especially a recruit gets paid practically nothing. What's important is you can't get a job without a job. No employer wants to be first.

@MangoMamba I find that I want to write more if I don't have to worry about HTML, static site generators, and all that. And definitely no Wordpress. Just me, my text, and directories. No website to have to manage my posts from, just... simple directness. That's what I like.
