Facebook is probably over anyway, no matter what steps they take to supposedly ensure non-bias whilst censoring. People are getting tired of being guinea pigs for advertisers.

Many 'Thank You's' to TM/OGH for being willing to take the big step toward preventing the psychopath's malevolent bile from infecting JOM any longer.

And thanks, as always, for providing JOM for all of us.

Unless I'm not understanding something, if the judge agrees with the White House's side of the argument vs Acosta, then they're also agreeing with the House lawyers that no newsmen need ever be allowed on WH property. Which, of course, is entirely correct, and something I'd expect Trump to start toying with, i.e. no more pressers, no more briefings, maybe just occasional questions answered while on the way to the helicopter. Very few in the press corps actually ask questions anyway and, if Trump changes the whole dynamic of getting info to the press, I'll bet it stays changed forever. Again, the press shoots itself in the foot, or maybe in the head.

That reads like a long winded way to blame Brexit for everything. Except the part that can be blamed on Italy. But France didn't do it.

Old Lurker

When I saw in the overnights the reference to the EU asking the UK for $39B as a going away present, and knowing what we know about the status of the militaries on the continent, I am reminded of Stalin's question about the Pope: "How many divisions does the Pope have?"

The Infamous Ignatz

I confess I didn't read it that way at all, henry.
Seemed to me he was saying fiscal austerity is bad; fiscal profligacy is bad; China, the EU, Italy and everyone else is bad and there are no good ways out of what's coming.

I hope we haven't lost jimmyk with this new regimen of signing in.

The EU will break up is my prediction..

Except 'austerity' was one of those vizzini terms, it was mostly draconian tax increases, along with some budget cutbacks.

That wasn't so terrible. But the registration doesn't seem to require e-mail confirmation, which is a bit worrisome.

No more blue slinky. That's Galileo saying "Eppur si muove."

Speaking of science: On that SMOD discussion, the NPR video at one of jim_nj's links, the narrator said something like, "The meteor could have arrived 12,000 to 20,000 years ago, or maybe as much as a million years ago." Hmm, very sciencey.

Need help from the JOM wine lovers..
I want to spend about $100 on a Christmas present of wine for my bro and SIL... so any suggestions for a winery from which I can select some bottles to give them?

I was thinking I wanted to select one winery and select a few selections that would showcase that winery's wares. I'd like to send at least 4-6 bottles so nothing too expensive per bottle.

sbwaters

Assuming you do not have Pagar on another account, D, you should be able to click on the “Account” link at the upper right and change your account name from “D”.

When you guys have time, I recommend listening to this Tucker Carlson speech from the Nixon Library:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BA7uVQJqVgM

Most insightful observations: The nasty reaction we are hearing from the left now reminded him of watching a video of Nicolai Csecsesceau's execution. As they were leading him out to stand against the wall and be shot, he was barking orders to his executioners.

Why? Because it was what he had done for 40 years and he didn't know any other way to react.

He said the reaction now is the sign of a dying order.

henry

Is a pox on all their houses too much to ask? BTW, SalesForce.com mines it's customers' CRM data for ad sales (and lists sales). Nothing benign or civic about that business.

Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce, is another critic, among the many now sharply criticizing Facebook and its executives.

He was interviewed by Kara Swisher, co-founder of tech news website Recode, for MSNBC’s “Revolution” series. He said that big tech’s leaders need to move from a money-centric worldview to one that focuses on civic improvement. He singled out Facebook as having a negative impact.

MissMarple2

henry,

I quit using Facebook for a number of reasons:

1. I got tired of reading inane stuff from classmates in Florida such as "Jerry and I are
going to the seafood buffet in St. Pete today."

2. I couldn't separate politics from other things as far as organization. In other words, if I posted something about Trump on my rime line I was going to get grief from my democrat side of the family.

3. The way it operates became too confusing. Too many pages, links. posters popping up out of nowhere that I didn't know, etc.

4. I don't want my data mined, although they probably already have stuff on me.

It seems to me that they have tinkered with the format and meddled with censorship-type stuff so much, that the site is useless.

jimmyk

Is a pox on all their houses too much to ask?

Not at all, none of them can be trusted. If they're ganging up on FB it's (a) to damage a competitor, and (b) to virtue signal by pretending that FB allowed the Russians to elect Trump.

NYT: Chuck Schumer Lobbied Senators to Stop Criticizing Facebook, Where His Daughter Works

In one incident, Schumer reportedly lobbied Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) to stop criticizing Facebook and instead focus on tackling “right-wing disinformation.”

“In July, as Facebook’s troubles threatened to cost the company billions of dollars in market value, Mr. Schumer confronted Mr. Warner, by then Facebook’s most insistent inquisitor in Congress,” the Times claimed. “Back off, he told Mr. Warner, according to a Facebook employee briefed on Mr. Schumer’s intervention. Mr. Warner should be looking for ways to work with Facebook, Mr. Schumer advised, not harm it. Facebook lobbyists were kept abreast of Mr. Schumer’s efforts to protect the company, according to the employee.”

“A Senate aide briefed on the exchange said that Mr. Schumer had not wanted Mr. Warner to lose sight of the need for Facebook to tackle problems with right-wing disinformation and election interference, as well as consumer privacy and other issues,” the Times continued.

Schumer’s daughter, Alison, works for Facebook as a product marketing manager, and according to Open Secrets, Schumer received $38,900 from the company in 2016 — making him the second largest recipient of donations from Facebook, surpassed only to failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

WSJ: Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office is exploring whether longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone tried to intimidate and discredit a witness who is contradicting Mr. Stone's version of events about his contacts with WikiLeaks, according to people who have spoken to Mr. Mueller's investigators.

https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2018/11/12/why-doctors-hate-their-computers

rse, great article. Gawande nails the issue with the mandated EMR and its hijacking of health care. It came via my Twitter feed two days ago and I shared it with all my partners. They agree.

Mistitled though--I don't hate my computer. I hate lying politicians, which is how we came to have EMRs. That encompasses all Dems and plenty of Rs.

Burnout from EMR use has hit 57% of the people with MD after their names who now do the data entry job ward clerks and billing specialists used to do, while trying to make eye contact once or twice with a patient during the encounter.

Morning JOM. I am blue!

Oh well, thanks for your great Blog, TM, no matter what we have to do to get on it.

I notice Miss M posted this 2 threads back:

We did not get the snow St. Louis got, Instead, we have ICE. There are power outages all over the city and surrounding counties. Fortunately, we have power. Schools are closed or on 2-hour delays, depending on where they are located.

I looked outside and my car is encased in ice, probably about 1/4 inch thick. I am going NOWHERE today!

So I pop open the company website and this is the 1st thing I notice:

An Operational Emergency in accordance with Section 12.A.3 of the contract was declared for Flight Operations in Indianapolis at 0700Z 15NOV18. Winter weather impacting the IND AM outbound operation is causing major delays.
