There are two types of people in this world: the glass-half-fulls and the glass-half-empties. The fulls see the silver lining to every gray cloud and the empties scoff at silver linings. It's the yin and yang of human nature, and, like all such dualities, we're all a little bit of both, depending on the situation.
But whichever side might be more dominant in you, one thing is for certain: locking ourselves away from the other perspective isn't healthy. It's too easy these days to get lost in the echo chamber of online opinions where we only ever read what we already believe to be true. The fulls believe everything is hunky dory because the websites they frequent and the people they talk to focus on the positives and downplay the rest. The empties are the opposite.
With that in mind, this week we're going to examine five signs that the empties are right when they say that the world is heading to hell in a handbasket. But don't worry, next week we're going to balance the equation with five signs that things are not as bleak as they might seem.
#1 - The mega-rich are getting mega-scared
You know t...
Given that the genie is out of the bottle on these technologies, it would be naive to believe that it will go away.
...the best part of having a family foundation? All your family, friends, associates and contacts get a chance to dip their snoot into the trough of filthy, filthy conflict-of-interest lucre, too!
...even if Google does launch such a system, it is doomed to failure. The internet is one of the last, best bastions of the free market in action that we have in our stultified, regulated, controlled, manipulated economy.
So why is this important? As I've pointed out in these pages before, in recent years we have witnessed the beginnings of a rift in the the US-Saudi relationship.
...modern trade agreements are often less about trade and more about giant multinational corporations finding new ways to rig the economic system to benefit themselves.
So who is going so crazy for this royal baby? Surely no one who is familiar with the real history of the reign of the "Windsors,"... it's easier to understand why every royal event is so celebrated in the media if we first understand a few things about the British royal family and its true place in the world.
...far beyond protecting the drug trade, NATO forces have long been implicated in shipping the drugs out of the country and helping bring them to the world market.
f the allegations contained in the claim are true ... then perhaps Sarao's market spoofing can be blamed for the crash in the same way that a single straw can be blamed for breaking a camel's back.
