On recycling/reusing (from Tuesday) . . . two delightful NPR Planet Money podcasts: WHY we recycle. (It started with a funny story and the mob.) And, more to the point, SHOULD we recycle. (Oh, God. It turns out: maybe not.)
You are allowed one reusable water bottle. And one SodaStream. No plastic bottles or aluminum cans.
On Borealis . . . everything I know I already told you Monday. Now that they have funding, it’s kind of silly the stock is $8 — a $40 million market cap for a company that might save the airlines billions each year. But as always: only with money you can truly afford to lose.
And now, as summer yields to fall:
Putin is winning in so many ways. “Technology is about to upend our entire national security infrastructure.”
These are the good old days. I count my blessings quarter hourly.
Have a great weekend!
Quote of the Day
To the BELOVED REPUBLIC under whose equal laws I am made the peer of any man, although denied political equality by my native land, I dedicate this book with an intensity of gratitude and admiration which the native-born citizen can neither feel nor understand.~Dedication to Andrew Carnegie's Triumphant Democracy (Scribner's, 1886)
