    Listening to a video conversation this morning, I heard that the proposal to lower the voting age from 20 to 18 in Taiwan didn’t get through. That didn’t get my attention as much as the expressed disappointment of […]

  • It was great watching this conversation on GoodFellows and I took away two main things from it. The first was how a solid work ethic of diligence and loyalty to the company and co-workers would triumph over any […]

  • As time goes on, we will acquire more and more data, information and hopefully, increased understanding of “How Things Work”. The CNA article on empowering Singapore’s Police to collect DNA samples in more […]

  • That might sound like a strange title for a post, but as I see more and more people talking about things like having your house full of books, which is supposed to ensure literacy for your children, having […]

  • The title might remind you of a catchphrase some time ago, advertizing for the “Life!” section of The Straits Times. It sort of summarizes what was going through my mind as I read the article from Geopolitical […]

    I read with sadness this morning that Queen Elizabeth II died on 8 Sep 2022 at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. She had been Queen for 70 years and will be missed by many. The only question on my mind was “Did she […]

    I haven’t finished watching the latest “Battlegrounds” conversation helmed by Lieutenant-General H.R. McMaster, but I see the trajectory going according to what I’m used to, and it’s a good trajectory. So I’ll […]

    There might not be many people who would publicly proclaim that a woman’s place is in the home, man’s place is at the workplace or whatever place brings in the income for the family. That is because of a limited […]

    A post by Geopolitical Futures’ Dr George Friedman on the state of universities nudged me to share this. The link to his article is attached. So are links to videos of separate conversations between the Honourable […]

    This might be an unusual title for a quick post, but it’s based on something I said. Something I said that I wish I hadn’t. Something I need to remind myself never to say again.

    Someone had called for a […]

  • When I was younger, I was all for the idea of only using organic fertilizers, meaning animal manure, fish waste, encouraging helpful nematode proliferation (meaning earthworms, but not too much) and rotating […]

  • Why do legislatures make official overseas visits? Simple. To get more money by establishing relationships and thus increase the flow of trade, which is good for everybody. I also said before that “Navies are […]

  • The author of this piece, Ted Gover, PhD, Associate Clinical Professor at Claremont Graduate University, seems to know what Xi Jinping’s intentions are vis-a-vis third term prospects and armed conflict over […]

  • I call this “Reminders for Journalists” because nothing I will write here is anything new, either for them or for the reading public, which includes me.
    Straits Times’ Opinion Editor Grace Ho writes about the […]

  • A Straits Times article with this theme caught my eye just now. As always, I ask whose responsibility it should be. My answer is of course each and every employee’s responsibility! Why are we asking employers to […]

    This was what caught my eye this morning. Another yawn-inducing piece. Except that the Fed isn’t responsible for inflation. People who have bought into the lie that printing more money stimulates economic growth […]

  • It seems that too much of what we have built, or allowed to be installed, has a very short MTBF, or “Mean Time Between Failures”, going anecdotally by what I experience on an almost daily basis. You want data? […]

    It wasn’t possible to have this video on the site itself, so I’m embedding it from YouTube.

  • Jason L Riley has written “Maverick: A Biography of Thomas Sowell”. I have not read the book yet but have heard Jason Riley talking about it on a couple of interviews. Having heard those, I have no hesitation […]

    I’ve been hearing historian Dr Niall Ferguson, who is the Millbank Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, amongst many other titles, use the term “counterfactual” more than a few times now, and always wondered […]
