Update to post on the deterioration of Trump's speaking ability
(Scroll to the end of the post).

An article in the Atlantic Monthly posits another possible reason for Trump's mental decline, citing research showing that power can lead to a leader's loss of mental capacity -- a phenomenon one researcher refers to as "hubris syndrome."

I experienced this personally when I spent a year and a half as a consultant to the CEO of a large corporation. I was in many meetings with the CEO and various managers and vendors. People jockeyed to sit next to him around a conference table and seldom disagreed with anything he said. It was a status symbol to refer to him by his first name. I had the strong impression that being in a status bubble all day for years had made him somewhat narcissistic and overconfident.

Similarly, Trump is the boss in business and a fan of his cheering, enthusiastic base at political rallies. Perhaps he cannot conceive of being wrong, resulting in flustered incoherence when he is criticized or asked a probing question. Few people would have a sufficiently strong character, sense of purpose or justice not to be affected by being surrounded by "yes people" for years.

Update to post on assembly of Chinese computers in Cuba

At the end of March, GEDEME announced that they had assembled 3,500 and 583 tablets. I came across this picture shown below being used during the Round Table TV program.

I'd be curious to know a couple of things -- how did they decide that this was a "sixth generation" machine and what do the initials "GDM" stand for?

Update to post on SpaceX rocket recapture and reuse
(Scroll to the end of the post for links and the video).

SpaceX is on a roll. They just launched a re-used rocket from Cape Canaveral and recaptured it and, within 48 hours, launched and recaptured a rocket from Vandenberg Air Force base. The precision of the recapture is shown in the following time-lapse video.

Elon Musk hopes to reduce the turnaround time between landing a rocket on a barge and relaunching it to 24 hours! His plan for a constellation of Internet-access satellites is looking more and more feasible.

Updated to post on Trump's Cuba policy and its impact on the Internet
(Scroll to the end of the post).

Airbnb has published a report on their Cuba rentals. The table shown below summarizes their activity since they began Cuban operations in April, 2015:

Airbnb specializes in people-people rentals and contact so my guess is that the majority of their Cuba business has been "self-directed, individual travel," which Trump has banned. Thus, one of the two major changes he has introduced will work against his "key policy change" of "allowing American individuals and entities to develop economic ties to the private, small business sector in Cuba." It will also cut the goodwill and mutual understanding resulting from home-stay tourism. But, I bet he got a round of applause when he announced it in his speech last Friday.

Trump said he was cancelling "the last administration’s completely one-sided deal with Cuba," but he didn't.
