Cuba Proves Once Again It Has One Of The Best Health Care Systems In The World
by Jessica Leber - Fast Company
#healthcare

Cuba has, for decades, been an isolated nation with high poverty. But in one important way—its health care system—it’s actually equal to or even beyond much richer economies. With universal care provided by the nation’s cadres of dedicated, well-educated doctors, Cubans live even longer lives than Americans, despite a profound lack of advanced medicines.

Yes,  a truly socialist system. I'm just saying it helps to have a population that has more resilience and ability to take care of themselves than what you see in most (spoiled) advanced countries.

Judge identifies 12 huge lies about justice in America
by Matthew Speiser - Business Insider
#justice

Judge Alex Kozinski, one of America's most prominent jurists, has a new article out that attacks many assumptions about criminal justice in the US.

"Much of the so-called wisdom that has been handed down to us about the workings of the legal system, and the criminal process in particular, has been undermined by experience, legal scholarship and common sense," Kozinski writes in the Georgetown Law Journal.

In his article, Kozinski calls much of the law "guesswork" and points out 12 widely held but largely false beliefs about criminal prosecution in America.

   Just how to prevent crimes and handout punishment is certainly a topic for each of us to ponder as individuals, then as a society.


  On Crimes and Punishment - Cesare Beccaria is written from a philosophical viewpoint that holds true still today.  Anyone who is giving this subject any thought today would benefit from their thoughts on the matter after they give this book a read.

  Something not to lose sight in is what can we do to improve the things we do use in our justice system.  It's easy to look at,say,  evidence collection and say that it's flawed.  But where do we go from there?  With fingerprints...if we are submitting partial fingerprints as equal evidence to full fingerprints, at a crime scene, then how can we distinguish between the two qualities of prints left behind.  When we first started allowing fingerprints to be admissible, into the legal arguments, did we allow partial (or smudged) fingerprints...or was this something agreed upon over time?  


  Myself, I don't know the answers to these questions.  But this is certainly something that needs to be given more thought than...yes our justice system is flawed.  Justice itself will always be a flawed system...but how do we improve upon what we have? 

  G'Day Walter :)

Why do countries repay their debts?
By Kenneth Rogoff and Jeremy Bulow - World Economic Forum

Why do countries repay their debts?
By Kenneth Rogoff and Jeremy Bulow = World Economic Forum
#economy #leadership

_What leaders must understand

The ongoing Greek and Argentine debt negotiations underscore the crucial importance of understanding the relative bargaining positions of debtor countries, official institutions, creditors and the international community at large.

Yet, in academic research, the most fundamental question of all remains unresolved: what can foreign creditors really do to a sovereign country that does not repay its debts in full?

About the Authors: Jeremy Bulow is the Richard Stepp Professor of Economics at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business. Kenneth Rogoff is a Thomas D. Cabot Professor of Public Policy and Professor of Economics at Harvard.

The authors discuss how recent experience casts light on relative merits of the two main conceptual approaches to modelling sovereign lending and default.

JetBlue Bag Fee Illustrates 'Because We Can' Marketing
by Jonathan Salem Baskin - Forbes
#marketing #jetblue

JetBlue introduced its charges for checked baggage earlier this week, finally giving in to a practice that has been adopted by every airline, except Southwest. There’s no good reason for it, and lots of bad ones.

Instead, we’re left to imagine the easiest, least inspiring tagline for its latest move: “Checked Bag Fees. Because We Can.”

How Physics Will Change—and Change the World—in 100 Years
by Frank Wilczek - PBS
#physics

For the physics lovers among us.

********************************

One hundred years ago, Albert Einstein had only just published his revolutionary new theory of gravity, atomic nuclei were entirely mysterious, and quantum “theory” was a tissue of guesswork. Superconductivity, the nature of the chemical bond, and the energy source of stars were riddles that baffled physics.

And then there were the unknown unknowns: Big Bang cosmology, black holes, quarks, gluons, the triumph of symmetry and its breaking, radio, television, masers, lasers, transistors, nuclear magnetic resonance, the eruption of microelectronics and telecommunications…and, of course, nuclear bombs. We’ve come a long way. It is safe to say that 100 years ago no one could remotely have anticipated modern physics, and certainly no one did.

About the author: Frank Wilczek has received many prizes for his work in physics, including the Nobel Prize of 2004 for work he did as a graduate student at Princeton University when he was only 21 years old.

Physicists Claim Universe 'Rings' Like Crystal Glass
by Bruce Dorminey - Forbes
#physiscs

Not unlike the fading tones of a ringing crystal goblet, the spacetime continuum and the universe itself may be oscillating through billions of years of cosmic time, say two U.S. physicists.

In a paper recently published in The Astronomical Journal, physicists Harry Ringermacher and Lawrence Mead at the University of Southern Mississippi (USM) in Hattiesburg, detail analysis of some 400 Type 1a supernova data points against cosmic look-back time. They conclude that the speed of the expansion of the universe has varied at least seven times during its 13.8 billion year history.

Leaders are born, then made
Introduction

Adventurer
, Entrepreneur, Leader, Thinker

Whatever I do I believe that life at large is a beautiful and exciting adventure, worthwhile enjoying every moment of it. I believe in having a dream and making it come true. I believe that each challenge holds within opportunity and you need to be aware of it. I believe that, when you want to reach what is really possible, you have to strive for the impossible and “boldly go where no one else has gone before”. I believe in an optimistic approach to life.

Mountain climber. skydiver, scuba diver

Engaging in activities like mountain climbing, skydiving, and scuba diving, got me to leave my comfort zone and striving to reach the magic of the unknown territory. These often humbling experiences taught me how to handle the ‘black swans’, the unexpected adversities, when reaching for the stars.

***
I am always looking for new and challenging experiences and going beyond my perceived boundaries. I love to immerse myself in the fields of science and technology, the art of communication, and also exploring the latest discoveries and looking for new and innovative ways to make sense of all that. I love learning, knowing, and understanding the needs people have in different countries with different cultural backgrounds.

Having lived part of my life in different countries and being exposed to their culture rewarded me with invaluable insights into human interaction. To me, beautiful design is the communicator between technology and human beings; technology meeting people where they are. I just love the space, where technology meets communication, creating a remarkable and lasting experience.
