Trump campaigned on a promise to provide a massively improved health care system for the people.
On 60 Minutes, September 27. 2015 Trump said: "This is an un-Republican thing for me to say... Cover everybody... the government's gonna pay for it".

Unfortunately as usual, and as he keeps proving by inaction, Trump is more interested in saying something and grandstanding with empty rhetoric, than in doing it.

Unfortunately too, the Republican party evidently has no intention of producing anything remotely resembling an improvement.

Trump himself has done nothing to attempt to fulfil his promise. He has no plan.
His only tactic is to yell at everyone else, but unfortunately in the real world, he cannot create success by these methods, because he can't fire members of Congress or Senators, as he used to fire the hapless fawning contestants eager for his praise and cash, in his stupid TV show.

From the article linked below:

In my surgery practice in Boston, I see primarily cancer patients. When I started out, in 2003, at least one in ten of my patients was uninsured. Others, who had insurance, would discover in the course of their treatment that their policies had annual or lifetime caps that wouldn’t cover their costs, or that they would face unaffordable premiums going forward because they now had a preëxisting condition. When he was governor of Massachusetts, it was Mitt Romney, a conservative, who brought Republicans and Democrats together to make a viable state system of near-universal coverage. That system then served as a model for the A.C.A. The results have been clear: increases in coverage have markedly improved people’s access to care and their health. For the last four years, health-care costs in Massachusetts have risen more slowly than the national average—while the national numbers themselves have been at historic lows. I have not seen a single uninsured patient—zero—in a decade. And now comes an utterly reckless piece of legislation that would destroy these gains.

Clearing watch later feels so satisfying now.

"The new feature works almost exactly as you'd expect. Load up a list like "Watch later" or "Favorites" and, well, swipe left. The video not-quite-card will bump over about a third, exposing a "remove" button. Tapping that does precisely what you think it does."

Hubble's Cool Galaxy with a Hot Corona

Galaxy NGC 6753, imaged here by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, is a whirl of color — the bursts of blue throughout the spiral arms are regions filled with young stars glowing brightly in ultraviolet light, while redder areas are filled with older stars emitting in the cooler near-infrared.

But there is more in this galaxy than meets the Hubble eye. At 150 million light-years from Earth, astronomers highlighted NGC 6753 as one of only two known spiral galaxies that were both massive enough and close enough to permit detailed observations of their coronas. Galactic coronas are huge, invisible regions of hot gas that surround a galaxy’s visible bulk, forming a spheroidal shape. Coronas are so hot that they can be detected by their X-ray emission, far beyond the optical radius of the galaxy. Because they are so wispy, these coronas are extremely difficult to detect.

Galactic coronas are an example of telltale signs astronomers seek to help them determine how galaxies form. Despite the advances made in past decades, the process of galaxy formation remains an open question in astronomy. Various theories have been suggested, but since galaxies come in all shapes and sizes — including elliptical, spiral, and irregular — no single theory has so far been able to satisfactorily explain the origins of all the galaxies we see throughout the Universe.

The new, new Psion is getting near production. Here's what it looks like

I had an original Psion Series 5 back in the day and I must say I loved the full QWERTY keyboard where I used it for note taking and spreadsheets. This "new version" looks really interesting and apart from the normal modern bells and whistles... it will also dual boot between Android and Linux!

You hold down two keys as the machine boots and choose whether you want Android or Debian GNU/Linux. Both look pretty raw, with work needed to bring them up to the capabilities of the display. But the incentive is certainly there - the 2160 x 1080 screen is terrific - and various projects such as Meego and Ubuntu have demonstrated that mobile Linux can be made to work very well indeed.

Kanji quest beta
https://www.testingcatalog.com/project/610/reports

This is a simple app for learning Japanese. You will have to learn ieroglyphs meaning by passing levels one by one.
The app is focused on it's core functionality which is good. It works well and the design itself is nice.
There are not that many additional features except the About view and Google login.
From my side I would say that it would be nice to be able to see learned ieroglyphs with their meanings at the separate view.
There are also not that many issues here.

Device: Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Android 6.0.1
Issues:

- The app has a login button but it is not clear why is it needed.
- Sign in menu option is visible even if the user is already logged in.
- The user can see "Welcome null" toast message on start if he was logged in before.
- There is no logout button available.

All of those are related to the login functionality and it looks like a half finished feature, so I hope to see it working soon.

An Internet of Minds

"Harri Valpola dreams of an internet of minds. “It will look like one huge brain from our perspective,” he says, “in much the same way that the internet looks like one big thing.” That impression will be an illusion, but we will think it all the same. It is only way our limited human brains will be able to comprehend an internet of connected artificial intelligences."

Identity

Seven years from now much of our physical self will have been replaced (https://goo.gl/miTHA). Arguably, some of us, might even have some of our brains restructured due to trauma or heightened intake of incapacitating substances. We will all be older. More experienced. Different. Yet there will be a part of us that will still be recognizably us and that part is governed by our memories. (https://goo.gl/WrNW2H).

How memory is stored in the brain (https://goo.gl/5CqvHQ) is the subject of intense scrutiny at the moment. By understanding it we hope to not only understand ourselves better (in terms of how we become who we eventually become) but also understand the neural pathways through which the world at large impacts upon our brains to guide our ability to function: https://goo.gl/9szV5m.

The stability of memory is a subject of intense debate and immense importance: https://goo.gl/WBhtZK. In The Social Media Mind (https://goo.gl/5aEZAJ) I wrote about how our hardwiring to be social and conform subverts our brain’s judgement and introduces memories that are completely false in what is now known as False Memory Syndrome (https://goo.gl/bOVUw5). The brain’s complex structure can undoubtedly be hacked (https://goo.gl/dPx1ty) to help us achieve specific outcomes. But while the way the brain works is malleable there are perhaps moments in its memory formation that are stable enough to become identity-defining: https://goo.gl/RVPvpf.

The question of whether our memories (https://goo.gl/oiomqA) define our identity is an important one (https://goo.gl/dRWR7r) not least because at its very heart lies the unstated question of whether we are ever able to override the past and be better than circumstances, chance and the will of others would like to make of us.

The 1990 masterpiece of a film Total Recall (https://goo.gl/aazehN) based on a Philip K. Dick story (https://goo.gl/zyRBtX) raised questions of identity and (even) morality (https://goo.gl/s4rBCK) in what was essentially a seminal sci-fi action-fest. This takes us back to Hume’s ruminations on identity, memories and the self (https://goo.gl/1m61Ug) with some schools of thought believing that we are our memories and are solely (and completely) defined by them: https://goo.gl/PHpjRn.

Others see identity as being rooted in choices and action instead of memories (https://goo.gl/jSG2ha) and argue that while memories may be erased who we are at core, remains essentially unchanged. Actions define us (https://goo.gl/fr97cD) better than words or even memories, because they require executive decision making which takes into account our perception of reality, our sense of morality, the critical choices we have to make and our understanding of the impact of our actions (https://goo.gl/dX6NNr). This is a central tenet in The Sniper Mind where I detail not only how actions, identity and a sense of self in the world come together but also how we can purposefully and actively change specific aspects of who we are and how we approach things: https://goo.gl/ECJx5W

The importance of actions over words (https://goo.gl/Cafges) is what has made social media (with its need for consistency) such a minefield for brands https://goo.gl/wSvRgx as well as individuals (https://goo.gl/V4WL6U). By presenting us with yet another, multi-layered platform of interaction it has managed to draw direct links between our core values and sense of self and what we do: https://goo.gl/kCFmSk.

None of this is easy to contemplate. We are, truly, dealing with the makings of who we are and tinkering with them as we function. As problematic a thing in itself than anything we might consider doing. Yet, this is the stage we are at now. It is vitally important to us as a species to understand what makes us tick. Our success in that endeavor will determine the length of our timeline.
I hope you’ve remembered what it is you do on Sundays: coffee (lots of it), donuts, croissants, cookies and chocolate cake. Have an awesome Sunday, wherever you are.

Trump pleaded with the American people to let him "make the country great again"..

Unfortunately for the nation, Trump is far too thin-skinned and thus incapable of any Presidential characteristics.

He continues to expose his innate racism, his arrogance and his narcissism. He is offended by Black people with high profiles who expect to be treated as humans.
He remains equally unoffended by extremist white people who espouse fascist ideologies.

From the article linked below:

In these performances, Trump is making clear his moral priorities. He is infinitely more offended by the sight of a black ballplayer quietly, peacefully protesting racism in the United States than he is by racism itself. Which, at this point, should come as no surprise to any but the willfully obtuse. Trump, who began his real-estate career with a series of discriminatory housing deals in New York City, and his political career with a racist calumny against Barack Obama, has repeatedly defined his Presidency with a rhetoric that signals solidarity to resentful souls who see the Other as the singular cause of their troubles. Trump stokes a bilious disdain for every African-American who dares raise a voice to protest the injustices of this country.

And lest there be any doubt about his intentions or allegiances, Trump tweeted this afternoon, “If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL, or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU’RE FIRED. Find something else to do.”

In addition to urging the N.F.L.’s owners to fire any politically impertinent players, Trump also disinvited the N.B.A. champions, the Golden State Warriors, from visiting the White House after one of the team’s stars, Stephen Curry, voiced hesitation about meeting with the President.

Twitter was alight with players and others rushing to the support of those on the receiving end of Trump’s barbs.

“Going to the White House was a great honor until you showed up!” LeBron James said. Many professional athletes tweeted in the same spirit as James, and even the N.F.L. commissioner, Roger Goodell, who has hardly been stalwart in the interests of his players, issued a statement calling Trump’s comments “divisive” and showing an “unfortunate lack of respect” for the league and its players. Compared to the N.B.A. commissioner, Adam Silver, who has been consistently anti-racist and supportive of the players’ right to protest, Goodell is a distinctly corporate figure, whose instinct is nearly always to side with the owners. (At least six N.F.L. owners each contributed a million dollars, or more, to Trump’s Inauguration fund, including Woody Johnson, of the Jets, Robert Kraft, of the Patriots, and Daniel Snyder, of the Redskins.)
