Shkreli VS Salk:

When he asked who owned the patent for his Polio vaccine, Salk famously said that there was none, "Could you patent the Sun?"

The top image shows Shkreli, a former hedge fund manager who acquired Daraprim, a 62-year-old drug that treats life-threatening infections and helps support the immune systems of AIDS and cancer patients. Immediately after the deal was finalized in August, the company raised the price from $13.50 per tablet to $750—a 5,000% increase.

The bottom image shows Jonas Salk, the medical researcher and virologist who spent seven years of his life developing a vaccine against polio, an infectious disease that was previously regarded as one of the most frightening and uncontrollable in the world. Annual epidemics made headlines and prompted fear in the public. Salk was successful in his efforts and came out with the vaccine in 1957; he supported mandatory vaccinations across the world, putting public health before profits.

This is how #climatechange   is affecting us.
Alaskan villagers struggle as island is chewed up by the sea ... "This is what climate change looks like, up close and personal.
In this town of 403 residents 83 miles above the Arctic Circle, beaches are disappearing, ice is melting, temperatures are rising, and the barrier reef Kivalina calls home gets smaller and smaller with every storm.

There is no space left to build homes for the living. The dead are now flown to the mainland so the ocean won't encroach upon their graves. Most here agree that the town should be relocated; where, when and who will pay for it are the big questions. The Army Corps of Engineers figures Kivalina will be underwater in the next decade or so.

Because the town's days on the edge of the Chukchi Sea are numbered, no money has been invested to improve residents' lives. Eighty percent of the homes do not have toilets. Most rely on homemade honey buckets — a receptacle lined with a garbage bag topped by a toilet seat.
Residents haul water from tanks in the middle of town, 25 cents for five gallons. The school is overcrowded. Still, the unpaved streets here ring with the laughter of children, the buzz of all-terrain vehicles, the whoosh of the wind.

Earlier this summer, White House advance staff cased the slender, apostrophe-shaped island to see whether President Obama could get here during his visit to the Arctic this week — the first by a sitting White House occupant. At the very least, he is scheduled to visit Kotzebue, less than 100 miles away, the heart of Alaska's Northwest Arctic Borough.

Obama has high hopes for addressing climate change during his remaining time in office. The Alaska trip is part of a global warming tour. In Washington he will talk environmental issues with Pope Francis in late September, and in Paris he will attend the United Nations Climate Change Conference in November.

The Alaska trip is part of an effort to "speak openly, honestly and frequently about how climate change is already affecting the lives of Americans and the strength and health of our economy," senior White House advisor Brian Deese said. ..."

Don't rely on the media to understand the world.

In this Swedish video professor Hans Rosling explains why and how this is rather vividly to a journalist. It is interesting and funny.

And yes, the idea you get of the world through the media, that it is all getting worse and worse - it isn't an accurate representation of facts. The world is, overall, doing better and better. We're making technical, social, political, economical and environmental progress almost everywhere. Not to say that we shouldn't deal with the problems we have - which are plenty. But it ain't all bleak...

Most fun part: "this isn't something to discuss. I am right and you are wrong" - spot on: many people like to 'discuss facts', like their opinion has any effect on reality...
