EXCELLENT summary by Pepe Escobar: ITALY DIVIDED A quick reading

EXCELLENT summary by Pepe Escobar: ITALY DIVIDED A quick reading.
The – neoliberal – center-left is SHATTERED, totally rejected by the electorate.
The winner is Rejection of Traditional Politics. In the north, we had a nationalist vote for the extreme-right League (in blue). In the south, a populist vote for Five Stars (in yellow).
What that shows, graphically, is the fear, anger and distress of people threatened by de-industrialization and under-employment.
Brussels loses BIG TIME. Those mediocre elites NEVER asked themselves any questions regarding the roots of Italy’s extreme distress.
The EU as it stands has lost any memory of its immeasurably complex ties with the civilization that forged the Best of the West – from the Roman empire to the Renaissance.

However, if these places are too familiar to you, let’s take vietnam cambodia tours to discover more new things.

I hope you like this as much as I did

I hope you like this as much as I did…
Nearly every morning I exchange greetings with a guy who does the “morning after” clean up at the Village Tavern. Not the most pleasant job, as you may imagine. But, you could never tell from this guy’s attitude and enthusiasm ALWAYS. I particularly loved this morning’s exchange.
Me: Good morning
Him: Good morning….We’re going to see a beautiful day.
Me: Yes sir, we definitely are. How are you doing?
Him: Well, I woke up this morning, so I figure I have a helluva shot!
It was said beautifully, with such genuine gratitude and optimism that I got choked up.

I’m finding more and more companies that use popular marketing phrases on their web site like “transparency”, “innovative”, “consumer first”, “unparalleled access” and “industry leading” but nothing embodies those phrases like the very same web site having no contact information and their physical address is a P.O. Box.

Happy Birthday to my Aunt Alicia; a beautiful human being, inside and out

Happy Birthday to my Aunt Alicia; a beautiful human being, inside and out. And honestly, I don’t celebrate her nearly enough as she deserves. In light of losing a dear friend of our Bay Area tech community yesterday, I am reminded today how brief our time is here on earth and how important it is to tell our loved ones they are indeed special and cherished. Although I don’t get the chance to see her often in person -Alicia has the good fortune to be living in Maui for many years now- she is such an important part of our family and loved very dearly. I hope she knows that…. every day!

Mi enano, you might be turning 22 today, but you are still mi enano, my little brother

Mi enano, you might be turning 22 today, but you are still mi enano, my little brother. The one I used to do experiments with during college for my psychology classes because it was funny and you enjoyed hearing about them, even tho you were a chamaquito. The one who made me start and coach a soccer team for 11 year olds (even if I had no idea what I was doing), so you would be encouraged to play like I did lol.
Now you have become one of my inspirations as you teach me to love and take care of my body, and take care of mother earth at the same time through your work.
All this to say, happy birthday enano! Te amo muchisimo.

Happy Mother’s Day momma- thank you for not putting me up for adoption (I know you thought about it many times ?)…one of the biggest compliments I get is when people say “you’re just like your mom”- it means I must be doing something right! Love you to whatever planet we came from and back ♥️?

Reading https://www.buzzfeed.com/bensmith/tom-lehrer and recalling first hearing Tom Lehrer’s music in the dorm room I shared with Paul Marshall, >half a century ago, laughing our asses off, and committing much of the lyrics instantly to memory.
Doesn’t seem like yesterday. More like last week.
