Get plenty of sleep, plenty of moderate exercise — walk a lot! — don’t eat much (saves time, money, and the planet), but do eat loads of raw fruit and vegetables . . . avoid stress, even as you engage in mankind’s struggle . . . but as to the rest? The vitamin supplements, anti-oxidants and […]
. . . filled with sand, laid on their side like bricks . . . look! . . . fire-proof, bullet-proof and allegedly 20 times as strong as brick. All at a quarter the cost of regular homes.
Waste not, want not.
As usual, “the project inches along.” And, I like to think, attracts ever broader interest.

There are a few hours of Hanukkah left! I think this link should still work: 3 months of just about every good magazine under the sun for a flat ten bucks. Or give it to yourself! Or get a head start on last-minute Christmas shopping.
Or give something else. I don’t care. Just don’t make the […]

Liberal Nobel Prize-winning columnist Paul Krugman is displeased, as he writes here, because “we may be doomed.” (Sounds dramatic, but such is their shared concern that 150 world leaders convened to address it last week in Paris.) And if we are doomed, he writes, it’s the fault of the Republicans — and the media’s unwillingness to […]
Or at least the quintessential sociopath. First he got famous for raising the price of a 63-year-old drug, Daraprim, from$13.50 a pill to $750 — 5,500% — rapacious barely begins to describe it — and now this amazing story. Which will surely cure you of any further thought of shorting stocks. And likely add your […]
Three months ago, I suggested UPIP at 77 cents. Someone smart had bought a whole lot privately at $1. It’s now back up to that level in the public market — I know, I bought some more yesterday at $1 — not least because the company, which owns a library of patents, seems
