A spectrum of possible outcomes exist in reality,

Not to put too fine a point on it, ‘we live a little and die a little’…

Like Hailie’s Comet, the cycle may only come around in along time

Or like some moths, a life cycle may be a few day.

To live a life worth living, most of us put limits on what we do,

A happy medium is usually the rule of thumb.

Society is complex, and what is good for society is the rule,

But what is good for the individual does not always align with society,

Currently there are many outcomes that fall short of the individual but bode well for society.

Education is the key to making a informed decision:

Officials have unveiled a new proposal that will help fund plans to implement universal basic income across the country.

As more and more jobs are threatened by robots, officials have come up with a plan to eventually introduce universal basic income – which is basically a minimum salary that will be paid to all it’s citizens. Though it seems like a great idea, it will be expensive. How expensive? At least $43 billion.

To pay for it, early this week it was announced that online casinos would be permitted to operate. It’s expected that tax revenues collected from these online casinos and those from marijuana will be enough to pay for its plans to implement universal basic income.

“We have decided to permit online gambling and allow a few licensed and regulated casinos who have been determined to be legitimate and real. The taxation structure will be similar to how existing lottery systems operate, except this will be on a bigger level.

When questioned as to what would happen with tax revenues in the meantime, they said “these tax revenues will go towards funding various pension plans, and later, these two will be replaced with a universal income system.”

After the announcement was made, it was said that only a few online casinos are permitted to operate in the country, with Grand Mondial receiving the first license “because they helped draft legislation, and have been reviewed and examined to be fully compliant and legitimate.”

There is trouble in this District republic of the Congo in the form of a nasty virus called Ebola.

Many people have died, been infected and some have recovered from this virus.

The numbers have slowly increased over the last four months, but the authorities have been pushing to maintain control over a serious situation.

Globally, China, USA, Canada and many others have been offering support and assistance as the problem continues to grow.

On the ground, in the region affected things have heated up due to the added violence due to civil warring and unrest.

WHO and many others are sending health workers and medical assistance to all those who need it.

With our hopes and prayers and support and assistance this outbreak may still be kept under control with persistence and tenacity.

Please remain calm, helpful and aware, this is still a difficult and unpredictable situation.

Richard D.

My good friend Richard was a big fan of Diana Ross, partly because of his gay pride and  partly because he loved all things ‘queen’.

‘The Queen Of Motown, Diana Ross, is so big and so talented with all her glamour.’ Or so says Richard.

Although, Richard had many problems, and passed away a few years ago, he would be the first, to celebrate her accomplishments.

It is good to see she is still presenting her talent for good causes :  National Arts Centre Foundation.

This woman is sharing her story with us.

She is an important politician, who will make a difference for her Pakistan and the rest of the world.

But she has already done more than most of us can ever hope to do.

This tribute to her is in the form of a book recommendation.

She shows so much to us.  Take a look.
