Today, on Stevie Wonderโ€™s 71st birthday, Iโ€™ll remind you that Stevie and Herbie Hancock used to battle over who would get the new synthesizers first.

TRIO MANQUANT
Que diraient ces trois sur notre รฉpoque ? Quel serait leur regard, leur vision, leur jugement sur ce que nous vivons? Cette photo pourrait tenir lieu de rรฉponse. Elle parle dโ€™elle mรชme. Et crie leur absence.

Pharma portraying a limited waiver for a pandemic as expropriation. That's spreading pure misinformation. No one expropriates anything, but it's a mandate to share. Pharma still hold title but asked to help in times of emergency. Is this too much to ask.

Kim Stanley Robinson's 2020 novel "The Ministry for the Future," is a fierce imaginative work. Robinson doesn't just depict a future beyond the climate emergency and capitalism itself, he depicts the specific, wrenching transition that takes us there.

Around the world, actual deaths are estimated to exceed reported deaths by 113%.
Underreporting could be from a lack of testing in deaths that occurred outside of hospitals - especially in countries with lack of access to health services.

As we speak, the US govt is facilitating the colonization of Palestinian land & atrocities against the Palestinian people, imposing a brutal sanctions regime targeting the Iranian people, backing the Saudi-led blockade starving the Yemeni people.

Your well wishes ring hollow.

Louis โ€œSatchmoโ€ Armstrong

https://www.didiermary.fr/louis-satchmo-armstrong/

Just a quick post as a tribute to Louis โ€œSatchmoโ€ Armstrong, with pictures, less known facts and a beautiful songโ€ฆ โ€œMusicians donโ€™t retire. They stop when thereโ€™s no more music in them.โ€Louis Armstrong On March 19, 1918, Louis married Daisy Parker from Gretna, Louisiana.They adopted a 3-year-old boy, Clarence Armstrong, whose mother, Louisโ€™s cousin Flora, died soon after giving birth. Clarence Armstrong was mentally disabled (the result of a head injury at an early age) and Louis would spend the rest of his life taking care of him. Louisโ€™s marriage to Parker failed quickly and they separated. She died shortly after the divorce. Plenty more photos of Satchmo @ Louis Armstrong House Museum. Claude Nougaro โ€“ Armstrong [โ€ฆ]Armstrong, la vie, quelle histoireCโ€™est pas trรจs marrantQuโ€™on lโ€™รฉcrive blanc sur noirOu bien noir sur blancOn voit surtout du rouge, du rougeSang, sang, sans trรชve ni reposQuโ€™on soit, ma foiNoir ou blanc de peauArmstrong, un jour, tรดt ou tardOn nโ€™est que des osEst-ce que les tiens seront noirs ?Ce serait rigoloAllez Louis, allรฉluiaAu-delร  de nos oripeauxNoir et blanc sont ressemblantsComme deux gouttes dโ€™eau

U.S. patent 11,000,000 issued today.
U.S. patent 5,500,000 issued in 1996.
Maybe you believe that half of all the innovation that has occurred throughout US history happened in the last 25 years. I'm skeptical.
The real explosion seems to be in patenting, not innovation.
