"...HIGH QUALITY OF LIFE..."

DO "YOU" THINK "THIS" COULD BE "BETTER" - from The Old Mountain Goat?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2016/08/29/6-great-things-about-slovenia-that-have-nothing-to-do-with-melania-trump/?wpisrc=nl_wv&wpmm=1#comments

"...But as a well-traveled foreigner living here, I can attest that Slovenes really do enjoy the good life — a package combining state benefits, a high quality of life at a reasonable cost, spectacular natural beauty, safety and cleanliness unmatched in few places, even in Europe. "
But most most Slovenes don’t know how good they have it.

COMPLETE "ANALYSIS" FOR "REALITY"

AND, "ANALYSIS" WITHOUT "RELIGIOUS THINKING" - for The Old Mountain Goat!

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/can-progress-on-climate-change-keep-up-with-its-quickening-pace/2016/08/26/f5934118-68b8-11e6-8225-fbb8a6fc65bc_story.html?utm_term=.ce8510f25eb3&wpisrc=nl_opinions&wpmm=1#comments

"...I’m no scientist. In my 30 years as a businessperson, though, I’ve learned that the best decisions require looking at all of the available data and trends. You seldom have the complete analysis that a scientist would require — events unfold quickly..."

"...Instead, businesspeople often must make decisions on the basis of imperfect information. A responsible chief executive knows two things: that a decision not to act is a decision, and that no competent leader risks the health of the entire enterprise by failing to take necessary steps, even ones that are painful..."
Even cautious scientists are debating whether the previously accepted climate timelines are overly conservative.

HERE IS WHAT IS MISSING!

I AGREE - The Old Mountain Goat!

https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/olympics/ryan-lochtes-apology-is-clear-he-doesnt-realize-what-he-has-done-wrong/2016/08/19/182e2348-6614-11e6-8b27-bb8ba39497a2_story.html?hpid=hp_hp-top-table-main_olyjenkins-715pm%3Ahomepage%2Fstory#comments

Here is what is missing from Lochte’s apology. Any sign of manners. Any sign of humility. Any sign of real regret. Any sense of where he had spent the past two weeks. And that is truly sorry.

For more by Sally Jenkins, visit washingtonpost.com/jenkins.
Swimmer’s antics weren’t nearly as offensive as the disrespect his lies showed for Olympics host.

DESPAIR

OUR WORLD, DOES NOT NEEDED THIS - from The Old Mountain Goat!

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/19/world/middleeast/omran-daqneesh-syria-aleppo.html?em_pos=large&emc=edit_nn_20160819&nl=morning-briefing&nlid=43648817&_r=0

"...The drafting of Omran as an emblem of despair is not new; images of dead and injured children from Syria are shared daily on social media, many of them indescribably more harrowing. Pieces of children’s bodies being pulled from rubble are photographed with appalling regularity in a war of indiscriminate attacks, most often from government airstrikes and shelling but also from rebel mortars..."
Images of the dazed and injured child have quickly made him an emblem of the harrowing misery of Syria’s five-year-old civil war.

"WATER"

In today's selection - from Water: The Epic Struggle for Wealth, Power, and Civilization by Steve Solomon. Only the tiniest fraction of all the earth's water is available to us as fresh liquid water, and control of rivers, more than oceans or lakes, has been the key to the advance of civilization:

DECLARED INDEPENDENCE - CONSTITUTION - FLAG
THE FATHERS OF THE NATION WROTE THESE WORDS, AND FLAG,
THEN,
MANY DECADES LATER, OTHERS DECIDED TO BRING OUT THE ANTHEM,
AND,
THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE,
THEN,
LATER, ADDING GOD TO THE ALLEGIANCE!
DURING THE CENTURIES, WE HAD GOOD, AND BAD, TIMES, FOR EACH LIVING HUMAN IN OUR UNITED STATES!
I THINK THAT THE FLAG, WITH THE THINKING OF OUR FATHERS, WITH THEIR INDEPENDENCE AND CONSTITUTION, SHOULD HONOR EVERYONE IN OUR NATION!
BUT,
FOR OTHERS, THAT HAVE LIVED LATER, THERE MAY NOT BE ANY HONOR AVAILABLE, UNTIL THE BAD, IS CHANGED TO THE GOOD, FOR EVERYONE LIVING IN OUR UNITED STATES!

THINKING ON A COSMIC SCALE

The Old Mountain Goat Does "THINK ON COSMIC SCALES"!

http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2016/08/24/490947403/this-planet-just-outside-our-solar-system-is-potentially-habitable?utm_source=npr_newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_content=20160824&utm_campaign=breakingnews&utm_term=nprnews#

"To have the nearest star with a possibly habitable Earth-sized planet is terrific," Guinan says. "It's wonderful. I'm just really excited."

"...And while 4.25 light-years might seem like an impossibly vast distance, that's practically next door in the eyes of astronomers who are used to thinking on a cosmic scale..."

"You can get to a tenth of the speed of light with present technology," Guinan notes, pointing out that a trip to this planet would take less than half a century..."

It's not exactly close — 25 trillion miles from Earth, say the scientists who spotted it. But that might be near enough for further exploration. It's about Earth's size, with mild temperatures.

"SHAKEN"

By Eugene Robinson Opinion writer August 18 at 7:41 PM

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/could-things-get-any-worse-for-the-gop-trumps-campaign-shake-up-says-yes/2016/08/18/d7446aee-6579-11e6-96c0-37533479f3f5_story.html?utm_term=.0f2f00e9ce5f&wpisrc=nl_opinions&wpmm=1#comments

"...Shaken by the fact that he’s losing, Donald Trump has fled into the parallel universe of the extreme right — and apparently plans to stay there for the remainder of the campaign. Let’s see if the rest of the Republican Party is dumb enough to follow him..."

"SHAKEN", NOT FROM ME - from The Old Mountain Goat!
Trump would happily destroy the Republican Party to feed his ego.

HUMANITY

FYI: AS HUMANITY, CHANGES EVERYTHING FASTER, THE OLD THINKING, HAS A PROBLEM, KEEPING UP WITH THE WORLD - from The Old Mountain Goat!

http://www.delanceyplace.com/?utm_source=The+End+of+American+Childhood+143-146&utm_campaign=8%2F19%2F16&utm_medium=email

Today's selection -- from The End of American Childhood by Paula S. Fass. At the turn of the 20th century and beyond, American high schools became critical tools of assimilation for the waves of immigrants entering the country. But the egalitarian culture these teenage immigrants found and adopted from their classmates led them to a confounding boldness and disrespect that put great pressure on the highly patriarchal families of these immigrants. The crisis for immigrant fathers was the highly difficult task of adapting from "uncontested patriarch" to "first among equals." Instead of adapting, they often became more autocratic:

"...White House sets new fuel-efficiency standards for heavy-duty trucks, buses."
The move is the latest effort by the White House to cut back on greenhouse gas emissions.

PROGRESSIVE vs. CONSERVATIVE THINKING EARTH PLANET ALWAYS GOES FORWARD INTO THE FUTURE - GOOD OR BAD! PROGRESSIVES TRY TO GO FORWARD BECAUS
Introduction
"The Old Mountain Goat"

Since my Joanna has let go of her life, Charlie (my little companion dog - now, also let go of his life) and I (Papa Foote, "The Traveling Man") were still walking down the "road of life" - smelling the thoughts of the world. But now, since my stroke has started to creep into my old body, my mind is still with the "Eagle’s Flying Higher" but mostly, I just want to try to squeeze my thinking and writing into just a few words that count towards a better world - like no more anger and selfish thinking that comes from warring between human clans instead of helping each other in our World! My choices are my own - from my inner self!

"Thoughts"

Plant Kiindness and Harvest Love
Beware of Charlatans*
*False expert: Somebody who falsely claims a special skill or expertise - Early 17th century: "to babble, patter," an imitation of the sound of empty talk!
Keep Your Mind Open and Balanced
Try To Be True To Your Inner-Self

"Facts"

Some "Facts" are actually truths that we are able to uncover and understand!

Some "Facts" are only truths until something changes as we become able to understand more!

Some "Facts" will never become truths because we will never be able to understand!

"So"

That is why the human mind has trouble with "factual conclusions"!

"I'm Slowing Down - But Still Thinking"

An Old Goat - Still Trying - As The World Cycles Forward (Never Back) - Leaning Forward Progressively - But Still In The Balance - Looking For The Better Path to The Future!

What am I afraid of and why? Because, after living many experiences, and with my mind still balanced with my thoughts and thinking, what is there to be afraid of, as I slowly get to the time of letting go from life - and, perhaps, going forward to more adventures! -The Old Goat-
