Things are getting a little crazy. A week or two ago I went to a talk about what to expect from a trump presidency. That seems to be everybody’s shtick lately, which is strange because he’s nothing if not unpredictable. Anyway, one of the interesting points was not about trump but Vladimir Putin.
According to the speaker, there was a video that went viral showing Isis burning two people alive. While this video was viral, Putin used it as cover to bomb an airport. (Note: I tried to fact-check this, but my memory of the details isn’t good enough to run thorough searches in the amount of time I had). All of this makes me wonder what Russia was up to over the weekend while everyone in the West was focused on trumps executive orders. It turns out Russia was moving its military into the arctic. Alarming, right?
Every time I see a headline for business insider I know without reading any further that it’s a waste of time. First, no true insiders ostensibly hold themselves out as insiders. Second, it’s the most pain in the ass website I’ve ever encountered. And third the writing is garbage. Even if business insider ever truly had an interesting story, it’s worth waiting for it to be covered elsewhere.
I have started drawing simple sketches on post it notes during my 5 minute breaks. The theme is tranquility (so far). I’ll take pictures and upload them.
