Why not decades ago? The Chinese have been eating all sorts of things you might find strange for a very long time … why now?Continue reading “A few thoughts on the coronavirus 2019/20”
It’s interesting when I meet random people over coffee at a cafe, strike up a conversation about a mutual point of agreement, but then the conversation strays into territory where it’s obvious they’re out of their depth, and yet still hold fervent beliefs despite their clear lack of ever having really contemplated the issues with any great depth beyond that which they were raised to believe — and which seems sensible to them, because it is a narrative told, usually when they were young, by those they trust ( parents, friends, relatives etc. ).

Ok, this isn’t really psychic, but I thought that was an apt name for the article.
A hypothetical rock starts rolling down a hypothetical mountainside, slowly at first, then gathering speed it rolls through some mud which completely cakes the rock in an inch thick layer … and on this strange hypothetical mountain, it then encounters a patch of small broken sticks, then rolls across ice which freezes the mud and traps the sticks in it, then it rolls across gravel that gets stuck between all the sticks;
I was reading an article the other day about a woman who died as a consequence of flesh eating bacterium, and it made me think a few things which prompted this article.

I was just looking at a Linked In profile after sending a happy birthday message from the reminders, and the person in question had a project about closing the gender pay gap. So thought I’d share something with you that I wrote to them ( edited ). Continue reading “Gender pay gap and negotiation confidence”

Capitalism is like a junkie silently screaming: “PLEASE HELP ME! I CAN’T STOP!” – and I say silently screaming, because on the surface it still refuses to admit it has a problem; but the truth is getting even worse than that, and more like the serial killer saying: “someone stop me, because I’m going to keep killing”.
