Ho Chi Minh

Travelling again, another trip to Vietnam. Ho is very close to home, less than a  2 hour flight. Vietnam is one of my favourite countries in Asia although I like all of them in this region. For me Asia is better than my home country Australia because I suspect that many Aussies have doubts about [...]

Influence

News services like CNN and BBC are concerned about social media. Facebook influenced the election of Trump they say because Facebook sold private data to communicate with and influence voters. Apparently another company called "Caimbridge Analytica" was involved. This opinion might be considered fake news, only fact if they provide evidence for changed votes. The [...]

This blog helps me very often with recollection, as I've said before outsourcing memory can be helpful. Well I've been to [...]

Warming

We are living during a time of changing weather, as confirmed by it's increased news coverage. The Earth's weather was more predictable before we changed the climate by our carbon dioxide emissions. Apparently stratospheric winds caused by [...]
