This is another of the W.O.O.D. series of semi-regular
Weekly Occasional Open Discussions.
(i.e. if I forget and skip one, no big)
Immediate prior one here:
and remains open for threads running there
(at least until the ‘several month’ auto-close of comments on stale threads).
Canonical list of old ones here: https://chiefio.wordpress.com/category/w-o-o-d/
So use “Tips” for “Oooh, look at the interesting ponder thing!”
and “W.O.O.D” for “Did you see what just happened?! What did you think about it?”
For this week, I’m deep in ponder over Climate Models and Parallel Computing. I note in passing the CF of mutual “Investigations” (read “Witch Hunts”) in Washington DC and the persecution of anyone with a natural level of sexual “motivation” continues in full flush. Can’t say I have any sympathy for any of them. Swamp rats all, IMHO. Better they are grabbing each other by the “private parts” than going after us.
On local broadcast TV I’ve found CGTN – China Global Television Network. So now I have Yet Another Alternative Bias to offset our native stations suckage, biases, and Patrons. They stress commerce and economic advantages more than the crap ours covers. While the US TV had one of the Dims (old sourpuss woman from San Francisco who’s name escapes me at the moment – used to hang out with Babs Boxer…) opining that This Time For Sure they would get Trump on the Russian Deal with some kind of process crime (due to his tweets constituting “obstruction of justice”…) the China coverage at the moment from: https://www.cgtn.com/ is saying:
Trump to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital
Senior White House officials have confirmed that US President Donald Trump will formally recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in a speech at 18:00 GMT on Wednesday.
So literally “Tomorrow’s News Today!” ;-)
Though one must again ask: IF RT must register as a “Foreign Agent” then why not CGTN and Al Jazeera and the BBC and DW and…
Oh Well. I can still sift all of them for some hint what our “Leaders” are really doing (as opposed to the Democrat Cheering Section in the DC Pissing Match that is the domestic Network News…)
