The age of personal exhibition

I don’t have Alexa. Or Siri. Don’t use Facebook or Twitter accounts. So I just go around the house announcing out loud what I’m doing at random times. I have three followers, but I think two are therapists.  I have just explained to my bedroom my new secret ingredient for scrambled eggs. I think it liked it.

Mexico and the Gaia Effect

AMLO (Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, Mexico’s new president – yes, he’s an acronym) is pushing forward with plans to build his “Mayan Train,” a tourist transportation mega-project intended to run on 932 miles of track that, say many friends of the Earth, will lay waste to a treasure trove of biodiversity.
