I thought Simon Reeve was a baby-faced British TV presenter off on jollies around the World just for fun but he started his international journalism career more seriously:

His TV shows are well worth watchiing IMHO

Another British guy became known as The Man who predicted The USA 911 attacks:

Sir Tim Berners Lee has started a company that he hopes will offer a commercial way to share and interact with other people on the Internet without all the privacy problems, security problems and general evil psychological testing and mind control from Facebook etc.

Cebu Pacific Flight from Cebu to Manila on 2018 09 23 was lucky for: my seat, angle of the wing and the timing of the flight chasing the sunset into Manila. Many earlier photos with the wing exactly blocking the sun like a starshade

Over the last 10 years, we have learned that most banks were badly run up to 2008. Badly meaning incompetently run, stupidly risky and doing illegal manipulative things. RBS was so bad that it saved Barclays from buying ABN AMRO because RBS was the greatest fool and Gordon Brown had to pay for its mistakes. Barclays didn't get a state bailout but UK banks were found to be rigging prices in Gold, Foreign Exchange, electricity markets, and interest rate markets. Bob Diamond thinks Barclays culture was "strong" and others were even worse. Just think how much those bankers were being paid and how honest traders were fleeced or destroyed. Market manipulation is the opposite or risk taking and providing a service. UK banks are much better run now.

Many people can ignore things when they are complicated, in the future, or when evidence is sparse or contains a few erroneous points but Philippines people and British people can believe things despite deep and obvious clashes with reality:

Everyone knows that eating some oily fish occasionally is generally healthy and it increases the levels of Akkermansia mucinophila bacteria in the human gut by orders of magnitude but now there is another food: the Camu camu fruit with the same effect and the good bugs can halve weight gain in mice fed with large amounts of the nastiest kind of fats. I wonder how it all works ?

NewAtlas made a list of some of the newer gut bugs and health stories:

Wind power costs in the central states of the USA have now dropped again to around $20 per MWHour. These incredibly low energy costs undercut all other ways to generate new electricity in the USA.

Vietnam has decided to build lots of coal power stations so that they can import coal and cause horrible levels of pollution (Mercury, Carbon Dioxide, Sulphur and radioactive) and have high electricity generation costs for the next 30 years - Vietnam can do so much better - so sad.

President Trump wants to write laws requiring coal burning in the USA power system !

The Philippines is an incredibly profitable place to install rooftop solar but the Philippines Government on many levels from the local baringay upwards has huge bureaucratic barriers to clean energy - especially foreign investments. Sara Ahmed wrote a great report:

Three Apple money stories:

Apple is still investing hugely in experimental stuff including autonomous stuff for car driving. Tim Cook reportedly said. "Well, it's going to be Christmas Eve for a while."
https://www.macworld.co.uk/news/apple/apple-car-release-date-3425394/

Apparently Apple (and Genentech) has tried to pretend that their billion dollar headquarters office buildings are worth just a few hundred dollars for tax purposes. The EU forced Apple to pay over 10 billion Euros in taxes to Ireland whilst the Irish government said they didn't want it !

The Swiss National Bank prints money for free and buys Apple and GE shares collecting real profits which can buy Gold or other real world stuff:

Two more general and more worrying predictive money stories:
Lord Rothschild and Warren Buffet have stopped buying US company shares (except their own) because they are so expensive now

Some think that Turkey's financial crash has been postponed, not canceled and its credit rating has been downgraded further into junk last week. From Shakespeare's Hamlet, "one may smile, and smile, and be a villain"
