USA: Technology: Elon Musk Interview – Tesla, Space X. Neuralink, Government etc – WSJ video

‘Tesla as the World’s Biggest Robot Company:’ Elon Musk on AI and U.S. Innovation | WSJ

Wall Street Journal Interview- December 6, 2021

Watch Tesla CEO Elon Musk in an interview with WSJ’s Joanna Stern at the CEO Council Summit.

COMMENT from Corbin Williams: — If something ever happens to this man the world will miss him dearly. He’s working so hard to make the world sustainable, life multi planetary, people in remote areas have access to internet, those with major injuries walk and think again, and to remove the traffic congestion from the freeways. So many people put him down for being a “billionaire” but wouldn’t know what to do with all his billions if he donated the entire amount to taxes.

GUYANA: New Year 2022 – A time to think – By Mosa Telford – Opinion

 By January 8, 2022

The year 2021 has ended but the ending of a year does not signal the disappearance of the challenges we grappled with the previous 12 months. A new year beginning in the middle of winter in some countries at midnight can be seen as peculiar. One would imagine that the most fitting time to start a new year would be at the beginning of spring when it starts to get warm, trees come alive, animals are born, and the days become longer. Starting a new year in the dark and cold, when the leaves of trees have died and animals are hibernating, does not particularly align with the laws of nature.            Continue reading

EUROPE: Checkmate: Putin has the West cornered – Opinion

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin

Opinion by Michael Bociurkiw | CNN

As 2022 nears, the West is trying to figure out Russian President Vladimir Putin’s next move on a complex geopolitical chessboard — and preparing an “aggressive package” of sanctions, should he decide to make another land grab in Ukraine. 

Tensions are now at their highest since 2014, when Russia illegally annexed Crimea and dispatched “little green men” into Ukraine’s Donbas region. An all-out land invasion of Ukraine is now a real possibility.

But let’s face it. Putin could care less about the West’s threats, sitting as he does in the enviable position of being able to call the shots.        Continue reading

Behold the simple shipping container. It’s a large, steel box that can carry tens of thousands of pounds of cargo. It’s also stackable and designed to fit on ocean freight ships, trains, and even trucks. These containers have been an unnoticed cog in the world’s highly complex manufacturing network for decades. But not anymore.

Thanks to the pandemic, the shipping container is now at the center of the global supply chain crisis, which has interrupted the delivery of everything from medical supplies to holiday gifts. Because of widespread manufacturing delays and bottlenecks, there aren’t enough of these boxes in the right place and at the right time.            Continue reading

In a powerful speech at last month’s COP26 UN climate summit, Prime Minister of Barbados Mia Mottley seized the day.

In just eight minutes she captured the attention of her fellow leaders, demonstrated all that was wrong with the world order, and proposed three practical ways in which wealthy nations might deliver the quantum of support needed by climate-vulnerable states.            Continue reading
