From a conservative foreign policy advisor for the George W. Bush administration:
"To friends still thinking of serving as political appointees in this administration, beware: When you sell your soul to the Devil, he prefers to collect his purchase on the installment plan. Trump’s disregard for either Secretary of Defense Mattis or Secretary-designate Tillerson in his disastrous policy salvos this week, in favor of his White House advisers, tells you all you need to know about who is really in charge. To be associated with these people is going to be, for all but the strongest characters, an exercise in moral self-destruction."

"For the community of conservative thinkers and experts, and more importantly, conservative politicians, this is a testing time. Either you stand up for your principles and for what you know is decent behavior, or you go down, if not now, then years from now, as a coward or opportunist. Your reputation will never recover, nor should it." https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/01/a-clarifying-moment-in-american-history/514868/

2 hours more of free time per day over ~ 35 working years at ~ 250 working days pear year adds up to: 17,500h. For me that means the possibility of mastering a couple more skills (10,000h "rule").

Makes me want to move to Sweden.

I'm trying to login with my feedly account but I can no longer do so. The email I used to register had a "+" sign in it and I see that it gets replaced by a whitespace when I get the login/password not found.

I have a Username but it doesn't seem to be getting accepted in the place of an email.

What can I do to regain access to my account? Suffice to say that this used to work before (at least 1 month ago).

Thanks

"More than a third of Hangzhou’s population were reportedly “convinced” to leave town as part of what Chinese state media called a massive exodus that saw cars forced off the roads and a seven-day public holiday declared.

Thousands of residents were ordered to vacate the towering apartment blocks that surround the conference centre where world leaders had gathered, to prevent an assault from above.

Dissidents were placed under house arrest or forced to leave the city by security agents."
