International camaraderie that we absolutely don’t deserve but definitely need.

Thank you, World!!!! 🙂 It’s nice to know you are out there. It’s easy to feel confined in this American Empire.

Ex-UN chief Ban Ki-moon says US healthcare system is ‘morally wrong’

Ex-UN chief Ban Ki-moon says US healthcare system is ‘morally wrong’

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/sep/25/ex-un-chief-ban-kioon-says-us-healthcare-system-is-morally-wrong?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_WordPress

Kudos to Ban Ki-moon for having the courage to step forward and say something like this.

One thing I will question is why the rest of the Western world was seemingly so absent from public condemnations of events and policies in the USA that preceded or directly resulted in this situation. I do champion diplomacy and have the deepest respect for those who engage in it. However it is also necessary and healthy to be brave and principled enough to bite the hand that feeds you when the other hand is beating you or someone else. At some point you become complicit via inaction.

Chinese coeds intent on flattening bell curve, or else! 😉


TIL that cheating is so acceptable in China that the people will riot if not allowed to do so. Over 2000 people barricaded school staff while chanting "There is no fairness if you do not let us cheat" after students were confiscated of their cheats. from todayilearned

When test results supersede knowledge and comprehension, maybe? 🤔 Also maybe a case of quality versus quantity?

Awesome news source.  I like to leave it on while I’m working late, falling asleep, want to catch up on things without a bunch of extra noise.  They don’t try to skip around and cram things in between commercial breaks.  Very refreshing.  This sets a standard for media and audio/video news production.
