In Which France Has a Clue

In current events, the President of France has put out a call to American scientists:

Macron is appealing to shunned U.S. scientists with a simple message: Come do your work in France and we will give you grant money and respect you. What France gets out of the deal is a front-row seat for all of the environmental, energy, and other technical innovation that those scientists will now be producing in their new laboratories. Being on the forefront of new technology has been one of the surest ways to ensure your own workforce is highly skilled and earns high wages. You know, that thing that the United States was once famous for.

America deserves the massive hemorrhage of brains it is about to have.

It's like a little slice of Terramagne, a la Republic of the Maldives.  \o/

Good News

Good news includes all the things which make us happy or otherwise feel good. It can be personal or public. We never know when something wonderful will happen, and when it does, most people want to share it with someone. It's disappointing when nobody is there to appreciate it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our joys and pat each other on the back.

What good news have you had recently? Are you anticipating any more?

Taking Health into Your Own Hands

I'm hearing more and more stories about people taking their health into their own hands because medical devices are too expensive or otherwise unavailable.  In this case, a woman invented an artificial pancreas.  

The medical industry grumbles about such things, but I say, if you don't take good enough care of people, you have no grounds to bitch if they do it themselves.  STFU.
