A definite story about the Steele dosier: what we know so far.
A short story about malnutrition and how hard it was to diagnose

A comprehensive exploration of AI's natural language processing. Very interesting.
When traveling the world you see China everywhere. It IS the new colonial power. Different methods for sure but it's visible everywhere.
"The end is near" or something like that. I don't think the value of Bitcoin represents a bubble, but who knows, there is no real comparison. The external factor certainly exists as shown by the Chinese government regulating bitcoin and its value declining thereafter. Look where we are today.
