For Joe Kennedy

Down the road to Massachusetts driving through the night
I thought I saw Jack Kennedy hitchhiking by a light
I hit the brakes - backed up slow, and Kennedy got in
I said, "It's nice to see you lookin' back in shape again
Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe they gunned you down"
He just shook his head and looked off sadly with a frown
Said, "bullets are like waves, they only rearrange the sand
History turns upon the tides and not the deeds of man"

Russian billionaire tangled in Mueller probe throws lavish bash in Davos

Russian billionaire tangled in Mueller probe throws lavish bash in Davos
DAVOS — No one throws a party quite like an oligarch.

Oleg Deripaska, whose dealings with key figures in the ongoing probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election are under scrutiny, hosted an extravagant party on Friday night at the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, featuring boats of caviar, magnum bottles of Dom Perignon and a performance by Grammy winner Enrique Iglesias.

Hours after President Donald Trump finished up his two-day powwow with the global elite and took off for Washington, many conference participants headed over to a Swiss chalet booked by the billionaire aluminum tycoon, who is considered by many to be a member of Russian president Vladimir Putin’s inner circle. Hedge-funders, oil barons and corporate leaders gathered just a short walk from the main stage where Trump delivered a speech about his “America First” policy earlier in the day.

Deripaska, 49, is one of the richest men in the world. His relationship with Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort has been a point of interest in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian agents during the 2016 presidential election.

Swat at a Mosquito and It Could Remember You for Days

A mosquito uses every sense that it can. It sees pretty well. It has an exquisite sense of hearing. It’s got a great sense of smell,” says Professor Ronald Hoy, who was not involved in the study but who studies insect neurobiology and behavior at Cornell University. “It’s got so many cool biosensors on board, that if you were to scale it up, that’s a pretty good bit of rocket science, in a way. I think that people should respect the mosquito for having that kind of sophisticated sensory equipment.”

In experiments that evoke Ivan Pavlov’s famous dog studies, the paper’s authors tested thousands of mosquitoes, exposing some to different human scents while delivering a mechanical shock to approximate the experience of being swatted at by a human. When the insects were then given the choice to fly toward that same odor or a neutral control odor in a Y-shaped Plexiglass chamber, they were more than three times less attracted to the scent with the bad association. Not only that, but according to the study’s lead author, Jeffrey Riffell, the mosquitoes could remember that negative association for days.

Mosquitoes could choose between two arms in a Y-shaped chamber, each delivering a different odor.
The researchers also tested individual chemicals found in human scent. “Once they learned a chemical indicates that they might get swatted, then they’ll avoid it to the same degree as a really strong repellent,” says Riffell, an associate professor of neuroethology at the University of Washington.

Evolution may play a role in this dynamic. “We all know, when we’re bitten, it sucks. Our responses are instinctive,” Riffell says. “Cows, for instance—the cattle that are moving and swishing their tails more are avoided more by these insects… seem to recognize a host that can actually defend itself.”

George SOROS!

George SOROS!

Soros rips Google, Facebook as a menace to Democracy

"Billionaire investor and philanthropist George Soros called Google and Facebook monopolies in need of regulation, in a blistering speech that added his voice to a chorus calling for major technology firms to be reined in.

In remarks at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Mr Soros called the companies a “menace” and assailed the rise of “ever more powerful monopolies”.

He said “more stringent regulations” were necessary and predicted that their “global dominance” would be “broken”.

“They claim they are merely distributing information. But the fact that they are near-monopoly distributors makes them public utilities and should subject them to more stringent regulations, aimed at preserving competition, innovation and fair and open universal access,” Mr Soros said. He added that governments would need to step in because tech monopolies have “neither the will nor the inclination to protect society against the consequences of their actions”.

He also warned that tech titans could effectively ally themselves with authoritarian regimes in an effort to breach new markets, expanding surveillance and establishing “a web of totalitarian control the likes of which not even Aldous Huxley or George Orwell could have imagined”. A reference to two authors whose books offered dystopian visions of societies that exert total control over their citizens.

“The dictatorial leaders in these countries may be only too happy to collaborate with them since they want to improve their methods of control over their own populations and expand their power and influence in the United States and the rest of the world,” Mr Soros said."
