I've seen my fair share of 'Uber for X" pitches but thought that it was passé. In the last month I've received two startup pitches claiming to be the "AI of X" (Artificial Intelligence). A new trend?

It's insane to me that so few realise we can't grow forever.
A person might be an expert in one specific field, economics for example, but they completely fail to realise how that relates to all the other systems in the world. There are so many academics who talk absolute shite because they fail to understand the big picture.

It seems like there"s been an agreement on US budget as was reported:
"A $1 trillion-plus spending bill denies Trump money for a border wall and rejects his proposed cuts to popular domestic programs."

A Trump supporter reaction 'ah, an Asian".
Her reaction if the passanger was a Middle Eastern 'they should deport him.'
And they do really mean it.

Trump administration is a nightmare of Mullahs' lobby in Washington D.C while the oppositions is nightmare of Cyber baseeji. Mullahs lobby and Cyber baseeji are traitors (Khaens). They're selling out our beautiful country to a bunch of stinky rag heads in exchange for some money they receive from them.
They both act on fear which creates worrisome as Iraj Khan said so and eat their souls. My advise to them is to join million Iranians against tyranny of ruling criminal mullahs. (dictatorship of Velayat Fagheh).
That should be "real Life" example.

My observation of some of the unfolding political events tell me that people still hold on to old labels in order to explain the current political climate. Criticism is imperative but using a label like “Fascism” for example does not apply any more. Fascism grew out of a particular political situation from within the European context and is highly unlikely to repeat itself in Europe or America. It’s misleading even as an abusive term. But it can create fear. In order to grasp a clear understanding of what’s happening today we must pay full attention and fear only distorts the picture. Those of us critical of current political climate in Europe and America which is worrisome, should observe closely to what’s happening, offer real political solutions rather than create fear.

A reader wants me to provide a real-life example(s) especially related to Iranian community in the US. I told him, instead of creating controversy, I prefer to wait, hoping some readers do that for me in their comments. Have you encountered such cases or examples?

From a food science perspective, it is difficult to define a food product that is 'natural' because the food has probably been processed and is no longer the product of the earth. That said, FDA has not developed a definition for use of the term natural or its derivatives. However, the agency has not objected to the use of the term if the food does not contain added color, artificial flavors, or synthetic substances.

Given our current attitudes, the riddle might be better described as religious. Data show that 51 percent of us shop for "all natural" food — shelling out some $40 billion a year on these products. We even choose natural over organic, market analysts have found. Natural has become the nondenominational version of kosher, and orthodoxy is on the rise.

The religiosity is apparent in the 4,863 public comments that have already been submitted to the FDA online. Natural and unnatural read like Manichean synonyms for good and evil. Some comments are explicitly theological: "Natural should be limited to those ingredients that have been created by God." Others refer to violations of Mother Nature's intentions. Behind virtually all of them pulses an intense desire for salvation from modernity's perceived sins: GMOs, pesticides, chemicals, artificiality, synthetics. We ate, greedily, from the tree of scientific knowledge. Now we are condemned to suffer outside of Eden, unless we find a natural way back in.

Here's another informed article about our “techno-feudalistic" future.

"...we are headed toward an era of “techno-feudalism.” He imagines a plutocracy shut away “in gated communities or in elite cities, perhaps guarded by autonomous military robots and drones.” Under the old feudalism, the peasants were exploited; under the new arrangement, they’ll merely be superfluous. The best we can hope for, he suggests, is a collective form of semi-retirement. He recommends a guaranteed basic income for all, to be paid for with new taxes, levelled, at least in part, on the new gazillionaires."

A partial solution to this conundrum of the new "unworking class" is the notion of a Guaranteed Basic Income, which is not mentioned at all in this brief article.
Some countries have already begun to experiment with this method.
Below is the link for an European network dedicated to Basic Income.

Casinos are a great way to voluntarily siphon money out of your state. Locals play...lose....and some company somewhere else makes the money. It's a basically a scam.
