WSJ: Survival comes from pre-planning

FROM BEHIND THE WSJ PAYWALL

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“Why are we the only ones going this direction? Are we digging our own grave?”

Eli Monroe, 34, on choosing a route to escape the deadliest wildfires in California history. We chronicle how the fires, which have left more than 40 people dead, have forced thousands to make similar, split-second decisions. Officials said Sunday that easing winds would help firefighters.

One thing that “preppers”, survivalists, and plain old “industrial strength” corporate Disaster Recovery (DR) planners do is: (1) itemize the risks that you might face in the future; (2) weigh relative probability of all the possible “disasters”; and (3) continually develop, test, and update plans for when those “disasters” happen.

Strategies — for example: shift to an alternative location, mitigate the risks, create alternatives — are just unique approaches in response to a “viewpoint” to a particular risk. Interesting is that a single strategy can mitigate multiple risks.

Tactics — for example: having a “bug out” bag ready, having a “get out of Dodge” kit in your car trunk, having a “cache” at a secondary location — are all slight variations of the same thing. AND, once again, they can service several alternatives at the same time.

One mistake that CEOs, CFOs, Board of Directors, and IT leadership make is that the don’t test realistically and completely are “blind” to the “ground truth” that their EXPENSIVE DR plans are worthless. And they don’t want to hear it.

Don’t you make their mistake!

WSJ: Repeal the Jones Act

FROM BEHIND THE WSJ PAYWALL

*** begin quote ***

The better solution is for Mr. Trump to waive the Jones Act for Puerto Rico for at least a year, and then throw his weight behind a Congressional repeal of the law. Otherwise, he’s rewarding the swamp of shipping special interests at the expense of Puerto Ricans and U.S. taxpayers.

*** end quote ***

Under the heading of “never waste a good crisis”, “we”, little L libertarians, should take the opportunity to repeal one of the “payoffs” to Crony Capitalists.

WSJ: Is Weinstein’s movie flops the reason his conduct now becomes public?

Monday, October 9, 2017

FROM THE WALL STREET JOURNAL “The 10-Point”

Grossed Out 

The Weinstein Co. board of directors fired co-chairman Harvey Weinstein from the independent movie and television studio on Sunday, citing allegations of sexual misconduct. In multiple conversations over the past few days, board members expressed fury not just about revelations of Mr. Weinstein’s financial settlements with women who accused him of sexual harassment, but also the high-profile producer’s public attempts to defend himself. The allegations have cast doubt on film and television projects in the company’s pipeline, and left Hollywood wondering about its future. Several top Democrats have sought to distance themselves from Mr. Weinstein, including by making charitable donations to offset his past political contributions to them. And much of Hollywood—rarely shy on matters of women’s empowerment—has been conspicuously silent about Mr. Weinstein’s apparent behavior.

# – # – # – # – # 

And I am sure that his “losing streak” profitable movie-wise, has nothing to do with the unacceptability of his alleged conduct?

Hollywood “celebrities” are two faced idiots, who have equated their success with “expertise” in all manner of topics, and “We, The Sheeple” listen to their “barbara streisand”. 

Argh!

WSJ: Think tank trashes GOP reform without evidence

Tax Policy Center Propaganda
The media’s go-to think tank trashes GOP reform without evidence.
By The Editorial Board
Oct. 1, 2017 4:26 p.m. ET

*** begin quote ***

Republicans face an uphill battle on tax reform, not least because opponents are willing to invent evidence to stop it. Take Friday’s Tax Policy Center report claiming to be clairvoyant about details of the Republican reform “framework” that haven’t been proposed.

The Tax Policy Center is a joint project of the left-leaning Brookings Institution and the Urban Institute that the media routinely labels “nonpartisan.” Its record of hostility to any GOP tax reform that cuts tax rates shows the opposite. And the latest evidence of bias is its willingness to jump to conclusions about the GOP plan before crucial details are known.

*** end quote ***

I “love” how the Leftists can “invent” evidence for the stuff that they oppose.

Argh!

WSJ: Multitasking?

FROM WSJ

*** begin quote ***

From Workout to Takeout Pick up takeout for dinner, or hit the gym? Now you may not have to choose. Meal-delivery services are finding a new market in time-strapped people seeking healthy, preservative-free breakfasts, lunches and dinners, often packed in a single plastic container. To minimize delivery costs, many are dropping the meals off in a place that customers frequent: the gym. Some meals are vegan or vegetarian, or comply with low-carb plans such as the Paleo diet or Whole 30. “If they leave our club and they go through a drive-through and eat unhealthy food, they’re just spinning their wheels,” says the general manager of one gym.

*** end quote ***

How pressed for time are some people?

Maybe they can eat WHILE they are ON the treadmill?

Laugh!
