Rocky Theme - A deguello Musical similarity

This is the Rocky theme

And this is "A Degüello", a cavalry march signifying no quarter. All captured enemies are to be slit by the throat from ear to ear.

The banner is called "Doliente de Hidalgo" carried by the death regiment organized by José María Cos in 1811.

We need tariffs to protect the coffee growers of the United States

We have a huge imbalance in coffee trade with Mexico, Central America, Brazil, and, well, pretty much every other coffee growing country in the world.

We need to impose tariffs on imported coffee to help the coffee growers of the United States.

Alert President Cheeto.

Trump negotiating tariff carve outs with Canada & Mexico is like

a mugger stealing your wallet and then negotiating how much to give back in exchange for you not pressing charges.

How does Trump get away with it? Let's remember what Karl Rove said

"That's not the way the world really works anymore. We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors … and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."


Trump has applied this principle with steroids.

We are so busy chasing down yesterday's ten scandals that we forget the hundreds that came before. Meanwhile he's creating ten new scandals to distract us from what we were scandalized about just yesterday.

It is Gish-galloping reality.

I'm just gonna leave this here.

SciAm - Trailblazers: Women in Science

Sally Ride, the first American woman to go to space, once said that she didn’t set out to be a role model, but after her first flight, she realized that she was one. Like her, the 12 women scientists in this collection became unintentional heroes through perseverance and hard work, making great discoveries in all areas of science. From Vera Rubin’s examination of the internal dynamics of galaxies to Nobel Prize winner May-Britt Moser’s study of the brain’s GPS-like navigating system, read up on the achievements of women who became role models for us all.
