A risky tool that should be used with the utmost care.  Unless you’re fireproof with good insurance.

EconomicPolicyJournal.com: Fed Chairman Jay Powell Goes Full Denial

Thursday, November 14, 2019

However, this doesn’t mean I hold the view that we aren’t in a Federal Reserve-manipulated boom-bust business cycle. We are and it will eventually bust. Though, I expect the first crisis to emerge will be an unanticipated acceleration in price inflation.

The Federal Reserve Bank is a misnomer. IT ain’t “federal”. It reserves nothing. And, it ain’t a “bank”. It is a private cartel of the elite banks run for their benefit and that of the entrenched politicians.

​I’m a believer and big fan.  The watch detected and alerted before any human had a clue.  And, I was in the cardiac care unit at the time.  It took the docs the better part of a week and me finally having bad symptoms ​necessitating a trip to the ER to get a clue.
YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary)  but I wear mine all the time.
Forewarned is forearmed.

Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Nicole Chamberlain saw the two youngsters during her rounds at around 8am on Monday morning in Waukesha. Bitterly cold weather and wind chills made the temperature feel like just 3F there.

Good work by this woman!

Children are “escape artists” at heart.  Can’t watch them carefully enough.

Have to keep the doors locked and chained to prevent this.

INOVATION: Researchers Create a Metal Structure That Will Not Sink or Stay Submerged Under Water

Tuesday, November 12, 2019

Even more remarkable is that the trapped air remains trapped almost indefinitely, which the researchers discovered after deliberately submerging one of their aluminum water-repelling sandwiches underwater for two whole months after which it immediately floated back to the surface once released.

NEWJERSEY: What’s Murphy hiding with his gag order on women who worked for him? | Moran – nj.com

Sunday, November 10, 2019

Murphy must be hiding misbehavior by his staff. Why else would he stretch out a fight that puts him solidly on the side of Harvey Weinstein in the growing debate over gag orders?

Interesting.

One would think that the original publisher has it in electronic form and could just submit the file.

If the original publisher has no plans for future publishing, then it would seem like a big win for humanity.
