If you do all these things to “make money”, and don’t actually make money, Alex will also complain to you about that. Reading between the lines of all of our lizards, we all have side-hustles of one kind of another, but many of them don’t result in renumeration.

I have personally done all the “learning” activities he suggested. Have they been worth it? Sure!

But I’m still on disability.

My impression is that the Adam Smith version has little to do with the “Free Market” capitalism that reigns in most of this country and is promulgated in our business schools. And certainly not what’s going to be taught at the University of Austin, if it ever succeeds in getting established.

The whole “labor crisis” right now stems largely from people taking Ramos’ advice to its logical conclusion…and ditching the 9-5 job that was wasting their time by refusing to pay decent value for their labor. Many of our fellow Americans either lost their jobs or quit them last year, then used the time afforded by the enhanced UEI payments to turn their hobbies into jobs, learning/improving skills, and getting educations that allowed them to get more money for their labor.

If the only way you can live comfortably in America is working multiple jobs, then the problem is not your work ethic.

As I wrote earlier:

The reason the likes of Ramos have this idea that humans have to toil 24/7 lay in the very primitive programming we still have in our genes.

We are still hunter-gatherers, just that for the past few thousand years we’ve decided to live a settled life and do agriculture.

Ramos is not just playing on the your-lazy-that’s-why-you’re-poor beliefs of the right.

He’s also deeply appealing to the you’re-not-a-real-man accusation, that somehow you’ve failed your manhood by not providing.

Meanwhile, over in Great Brexit, even the Telegraph has to run a headline with a bit of truth:

Equine industry is facing death by Brexit

No, it’s not about the Brits having to eat horse meat. At least not yet.

Instead, it’s about the inability to get trainers into the UK from Europe, and the inability to take UK horses over to the EU.

The Telegraph of course also have to blame the French for this.

But the reality of it all is that this is what the UK gets for Making Anglo-Saxons Great Again.

A hundred years ago, almost to the day, Dr. Frederick Banting celebrated his 30th birthday in a memorable way.

Accompanied by his colleague Charles Best, on Nov. 14, 1921, Banting presented the results of roughly seven months of diabetes experiments to the Journal Club of the University of Toronto’s Department of Physiology. The pair had discovered an “active pancreatic extract” that would come to be known as “insulin” and, although it hadn’t been tested on humans yet, their experiments with dogs suggested this would be a successful treatment and significantly extend the lives of diabetics.

A few months later, when the discovery was made more public, it was front-page news in the Toronto Star, which ran a story on March 22, 1922, under the banner headline “Toronto Doctors on Track of Diabetes Cure—Diabetes Sufferers Given Message of Hope.” And it wasn’t only because it was hometown boys making good that it landed on the front page.

“Even globally, it was a major deal at the time,” says Christopher Rutty, a professional medical and public historian and adjunct professor at the University of Toronto’s Dalla Lana School of Public Health. “And one reason we still talk about it today is that, as a friend of mine, Grant Maltman, the curator of Banting House in London, says, ‘Today, we have better insulin, but nothing better than insulin.’

The legacy media got spoiled on four years of effortless meals. Pence was a non-entity most of the time because whenever the press woke up in the morning, there were at least two ready-to-go stories about something Trump has belched out or fucked up during the overnight hours. Why worry about the mumblings of a 5’ 10” white layer cake with mayonnaise frosting when you could just pull up Twitter and write 80 columns about the latest brain fart from the Cheeto-colored turd in a poorly-fitted suit?

Anti-vaxxers boycott Tesco after Christmas ad features double-vaccinated Santa (The Independent, Sunday)

‘Never again will me or my family shop with you. Disgusting propaganda,’ one woman tells supermarket

Tesco became the target of a social media hate campaign over the weekend after the release of its annual Christmas advert, which this year features Santa Claus bearing a Covid vaccine pass.

Titled “This Christmas, Nothing’s Stopping Us”, the minute-and-a-half clip shows Britons enjoying this year’s festive season after lockdown restrictions last year meant the majority of friends and families could not come together.

But amid the joy, a news reporter tells shocked viewers that Father Christmas “may have to be quarantined” - before the man of the hour appears in front of a Border Control officer bearing his Covid pass to certify he has received both doses of a vaccine, and so can go ahead with his travel plans.

Despite the make-believe British public being overjoyed on screen, it was a different story on Twitter as dozens of anti-vaxxers launched a #BoycottTesco campaign in response to the commercial.

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted some Russian choral music. Perhaps some years back (when I posted mp3 links from Russian music servers) I posted a recording of G. Sviridov’s Three Chorus (the title is longer, it’s music inspired by a Tolstoy drama for a Czar Feodor Ioannovitch, but I doubt any of us English speakers have read it.)

But while it used to be quite scarce on Youtube the piece is becoming more popular, it seems, from several recent Youtube uploads.

Here’s a traditional performance, with accompanying very nationalistic images:

Г. В. СВИРИДОВ - Три хора из музыки к трагедии «Царь Фёдор Иоаннович» / КАПЕЛЛА имени А. А. Юрлова

That first church interior shown is quite blinged out, something one would not find easily in the US.

There is another recent performance, by a smaller ensemble, set as an experimental art display. I like it, even if it is not what Sviridov imagined:

Sviridov - Three choirs

Anyway, amazingly beautiful music, something that I suspect many young Americans have never heard. For all the ills that Russian religious nationalism has wrought, the music sure is impressive.

The passenger was declared dead at the scene and is yet to be formally identified.

The male driver was injured and is in hospital in a stable condition.

A Texas teen is facing felony arson charges for allegedly setting fire to an Austin synagogue on Halloween night.

Franklin Barrett Sechriest, 18, was arrested Wednesday by criminal investigators with the Austin Fire Department. Sechriest was identified thanks to surveillance footage from the parking lot of Congregation Beth Israel before, during, and after the blaze, showing the license plate number of his Jeep—which led cops to Sechriest’s home in San Marcos, Texas, where he lives with his mother, Nicole, according to a warrant for Sechriest’s arrest obtained by The Daily Beast.

The fire caused approximately $25,000 worth of damage to the temple, it states.

The Trump presidency really kinda screwed up the media outlets. The abundance of scandals and failures coming out of Washington meant that they got easy ratings and didn’t really have to work for their stories. Now things in Washington are trending towards normal, but they’re trying to exploit the same lazy formulas, with a side helping of “both sides are bad” (in their political reporting, at least) in a failed attempt to look fair and unbiased after covering the Trump train wreck for 4+ years.

I am certainly interested in everyone’s opinions here on the current propaganda on VP Kamala Harris

Vice President Kamala Harris is being increasingly alienated in the White House as her approval ratings plummet — as the first female veep feels she’s not getting the same support President Biden gives to white male politicians, according to a detailed new report.

Despite their public show of unity, Biden and his right-hand woman have a dysfunctional relationship that has reached an “exhausted stalemate,” CNN said based on interviews with nearly three dozen insiders.

At a time when the president would usually be expected to promote his vice president as a future replacement in the White House, Biden has instead been sidelining Harris as a potential liability, the report said.
She is increasingly being pushed aside into inconsequential jobs and left out of key meetings as her poll numbers sink even lower than the president’s and the Democratic base appears to be giving up on her, the report said.

My hail Mary guess is that Dr. Jill Biden is sidelining her.

Via Radio Poland:

Polish authorities have detained a Ukrainian man suspected of multiple cybercrime offences, in a joint operation with the FBI, officials said on Monday.

The 22-year-old suspect, named as “Jaroslaw Wasinskij,” was arrested at the Dorohusk border crossing between Poland and Ukraine on October 8 “thanks to cooperation between Polish and American security services,” including Poland’s Internal Security Agency (ABW) and the FBI, according to the gov.pl website.

The man has been accused of numerous computer crimes, a spokesman for Poland’s security services, Stanisław Żaryn, told the media. (more)

Żaryn said in a statement that Wasinskij “is accused of cybercrime involving … gaining unauthorized access to protected data by installing malware and paralyzing IT systems through data encryption, and then demanding ransom fees.”

Gov. Stitt of Oklahoma got his wish. Let’s see how the Pentagon takes it. Of course, it won’t be Gov. Stitt who gets in trouble; conservatives are pretty good at that.

WASHINGTON — The new leader of the Oklahoma National Guard issued a memo Thursday ordering no troops will be required to take a coronavirus vaccine despite a mandate from the Pentagon requiring it, according to a news report.

Oklahoma Adjutant General Thomas Mancino updated the Oklahoma National Guard’s vaccination policy as one of his first acts in the job, noting “no negative administrative or legal action will be taken” against Guard members who decline the coronavirus vaccine, The Oklahoman reported Friday.

The decision comes after Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin in August issued a mandate requiring all service members to get the vaccine or be separated from the military for failing to obey a lawful order.

re: #69 Dopamine Fish

The Trump presidency really kinda screwed up the media outlets. The abundance of scandals and failures coming out of Washington meant that they got easy ratings and didn’t really have to work for their stories. Now things in Washington are trending towards normal, but they’re trying to exploit the same lazy formulas, with a side helping of “both sides are bad” (in their political reporting, at least) in a failed attempt to look fair and unbiased after covering the Trump train wreck for 4+ years.

They continued their laziness and refused to dig deeper when it was absolutely essential. Journalists put their personal ambitions and profits ahead of doing the job on reporting - saving up details for books, rather than highlighting the criminality and misconduct as it was happening.

Hagiography and stenography is what journalists do these days. They’ve got their narratives and the media conglomerates like CNN and Fox push those narratives and don’t bother digging deeper because costs must be contained, and they know that viewers eyeballs are what drives their revenues - so headlines and tweets are more important than substance.

280 characters is what people see. Headlines/tweets.

They’re not bothering with long form journalism, let alone investigative journalism because that costs with little in return.

Some scary shite right here:

A British taxi driver is being hailed a hero after he locked a suspected terrorist in his car just seconds before a bomb exploded outside a Liverpool hospital.

The male suspect was the only person killed after his improvised explosive device detonated inside driver David Perry’s taxi outside Liverpool Women’s Hospital on Sunday, authorities said.

British police said Monday they were treating the blast as terrorist incident.

Surveillance footage obtained by The Sun showed Perry’s taxi pulling up outside the hospital’s entrance after he picked up the suspect about 10 minutes away.

The bomb exploded before the car had even come to a complete stop.

Seconds later, Perry can be seen fleeing from the driver’s side door as smoke and flames billowed from the vehicle.

On a cursory scan of its website and Instagram page, Mighty White Soap Co might look like an innocuous, cutesy personal care brand, albeit one with an arguably archaic and tone-deaf name. But a closer look turns up some offbeat offerings mixed in among its seasonal designs, colorful swirls, and floral patterns, like a soap embedded with glow-in-the-dark letters that read CIA. And a review of all their product names reveals a disconcerting mélange of unremarkable odor monikers (“Autumn Caress”), strange references to obscure far-right memes (“Clown World”), and an apparent fixation on white consumers (“Morally White,” “Caucasian Abrasion”).

The Mighty White Soap Co website does not have a traditional “About” page, or even a quick list of company values. But a deep dive into their product blurbs and social media posts makes it crystal clear that it is in fact an only moderately veiled white-nationalist beauty brand. The company also winks and nods to a wide array of overarching far-right—and increasingly pandemic- and vaccine-skeptical—conspiracy theories.

They were talking on the news this morning, and one of the things that has the defense worried is that the jury is allowed to decide if Rittenhouse provoked the attacks on him. If he did, the bar for self-defense is really high. That’s probably what all of this stuff about the video is about. Though I wish a prosecutor would show how big a picture taken by a camera would be if they tried to display it at “normal” resolution, showing that the camera normally compresses information to display it.

Cumulative exodus of international firms from China due to its increasing cult of personality around Xi Jiaping, the collapse of the Evergrande property development company, aggressive military expansion to counter the United States, and the crushing of the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong has resulted in a major blow to China.

Samsung Heavy Industries, which produces 200,000 tonnes of ship building blocks every year since opening their shipyard in 1997, is closing. Samsung will produce ships in South Korea.

Technically it’s not the same. I see what argument the defense is going for; “technically correct is the best kind of correct.” Technically, they’re not wrong; digitally zooming in “adds pixels” to an image. It does this in ways that are difficult to describe to an elderly judge or a jury of 12 laypeople. The defense is relying on this fact to introduce doubt in what would otherwise be a clear video, and the judge is all on board with it.

Reminder:

Trump put Pence in charge of the pandemic response.

Pence then managed to wreck the response and cause a major public health crisis even larger than the one he created in Indiana during the AIDS crisis - his choices purposefully made the AIDS/HIV crisis worse in Indiana, and he replicated that disaster on an epic scale with the covid19 pandemic by refusing to follow actual health expert guidance and instead largely ignored the pandemic. In the process, GOP wrecked the economy and killed hundreds of thousands (and are still killing Americans on a daily basis).

Bullshit-based clickbait: the (Murdoch rag) Post just framing it a little cruder and more-simplistic than, say CNN.
But still fairly thin: AFAICT, VP Harris isn’t doing any more or less, with no more or less support from the WH than many/most Veeps in modern history (Dick Cheney running things behind Idiot Dubya’s curtain is a notable exception).
The RW press isn’t going to give ANY Democratic Admin any sort of break on anything: IMO, these “dysfunction” stories are just so much tabloid hype: and unfortunately - since they appeal to the already-prejudiced opinions of extremists - unlikely to be very “correctable”.

There are a lot of items missing on Amazon Fresh. I haven’t been able to get pre-cooked Tyson chicken products for a couple of weeks.

He took over for Kyle Orten in Denver about mid way through the year. Broncos proceeded to go on a run, win their division, and beat the Steelers in round 1 of the playoffs. A lot of it was in spite of Tebow, not because of them. They couldn’t throw for anything, but between Tebow and the RB’s, they could run the ball well. They also had an excellent defense.

GM John Elway couldn’t wait to get rid of Tebow, though, and immediately did so when Peyton Manning became available. Tebow was traded to the Jets (after Tebow declined a trade to his hometown Jaguars because that was too small of a market). The Jets promptly had Tebow bulk up to play FB/H-back, and he was basically never a QB again.

What this yahoo likely doesn’t understand, was that Tebow was invited to camp with the Jaguars by his former coach at Florida, Urban Meyer. He was trying out as a TE. Not even his college coach thought Tebow could play QB anymore.

And of course, he is totally silent about Colin Kaepernick, who could 100% play better than a LOT of QBs on rosters today. Maybe not start, but could easily be a backup. No one will, of course, touch him.

China has a ton of T-Bills. If they pull that money out because they need it to with help their recovery, then their problem becomes our problem.

There’s an analysis here. Short answer: China is buying T bills for its benefit, not the US’s, and any reduction in this is either a non-event if it’s being replaced by some other foreign security, or simply shooting itself in the ‘nads and probably benefiting the US if it’s not.

China is now trying to land a plane on fire that it should have been dealing with a decade ago. Xi is now trying to control domestic speculation, but there’s not a lot of places for the middle and upper middle classes to put their money besides investment property, and it’s a hell of a lot of money chasing big returns. Foreign investors will get completely pantsed, but they want to make sure that domestic “investors” aren’t wiped out, and it’s easier said than done when something like 1/7th of your economy could be in freefall within hours. I’m not sure what’s going to happen, and they shouldn’t be either.
