THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY

"What started as a day of celebration for Black organizers, voters and other Georgians who helped deliver two historic Senate runoff victories was overshadowed Wednesday when a mostly white mob of President Donald Trump’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol. But Black leaders and organizers say the rioters’ insurrection won’t deter the momentum achieved after the hard-fought victories of Georgia Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. Instead, it serves as a harsh reminder of the work that lies ahead for the nation to truly grapple with white supremacy and racism, which Trump’s presidency emboldened"

I THINK THIS [IS] INDEED A GAME CHANGER

  The contractors have already started dynamiting the

  steep rocky fjord side to make way for tanks which

  will in three years start receiving the world’s first

  deliveries of industrial CO2 emissions for storage

  beneath the North Sea.



In mid-December, Norway’s parliament voted to spend 16.8bn kroner (£1.5bn) on Longship, calling it “the largest-ever climate project in Norwegian industry”. This covers more than two-thirds of the total cost of developing and operating carbon capture at two industrial plants, as well as transport and storage of the CO2.

Northern Lights project, a partnership between Equinor, Norway’s majority state-owned energy company, Royal Dutch Shell, and the French oil major Total, is responsible for the transportation and storage side. When it is fully…

BIT AS BAIT

In the bigger picture, in which people must do more than con-form in order for our species to thrive, behaviorism is an inadequate way to think about society. If you want to motivate high value and creative outcomes, as opposed to undertaking rote training, then reward and punishment aren’t the right tools at all.



There’s a long line of researchers studying this topic, starting with Abraham Maslow in the 1950s and continuing with many others, including Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (joined by writers like Daniel Pink). Instead of applying the simple mechanisms of behaviorism, we need to think about people in more creative ways, if we expect them to be creative. We need to foster joy, intellectual challenge, individuality, curiosity, and other qualities that don’t fit into a tidy chart. But there’s something about the rigidity of digital technology, the on-and-off nature of the bit, that attracts the behaviorist way of thinking. Reward and punishment are like one and zero. It’s not surprising that B. F. Skinner was a major player in the earliest days of digital networking, for instance.fn15 He saw digital networks as an ideal way to train a population for the kind of utopia he sought, where we’d all just finally behave. One of his books was called Beyond Freedom and Dignity. Beyond!

[TIME]less [TIME] in[TIME]

When the news of John F. Kennedy's defeat of Nixon in the 1960 Presidential election, was first broadcast, my soulmate Linnie and I were attending a Fourth Form lesson in History and barely 3 years later following the Cuban missile crisis, whilst studying for our 'A' Level GCE examinations, we again both heard that President Kennedy had been assassinated.



Having left Grammar School in 1964 • Linnie qualified as a Radiographer and I as an Air Traffic Controller • we then got married in 1968 and bought our first house/home together in High Wycombe.




Following my secondment from the MOA/MOD to Eurocontrol in Brussels, and us then subsequently setting up home in Sittard NL as a result of my transfer to the Maastricht UAC, Nixon then became President and after the Democratic National Committee headquarters break-in, in June 1972, an investigation revealed…
