Explicit Ambiguity

In this global-economy world, most of us are looking for that perfect job, or, if not available, a job that will pay our bills and maybe some of that college debt. Back in the Stone Age, we all looked in the Sunday classified ads for jobs. The rise of the internet made job searches easier, with every kind of job site available, some free and some that charge.

WHITE LIVES MATTER

A young woman called 911, to report another woman being assaulted in the alley behind her home. When she saw a patrol car, she ran out in her PJ's to report what had happened.

Which dead Rock Star was the biggest loss?

I have often pondered this. Some many bright young rockers died tragically young with short careers. What could they have achieved if they had lived longer?   I drew up a short-list of the ones that came to mind (and added in a couple whose careers were ruptured by mental illness). I focussed o…

Despite its name, there's nothing "modern" about Modern Monetary Theory. It derives from an old model of money and the state called "Chartalism", whose name, in turn, derives from the Latin word "charta" which means "token" or "ticket" — or more simply, anything without inherent value that ser…
