Pseudo-Random Thoughts

If You Are Wondering Why People Flee Central American Nations like Honduras and El Salvador, take a look at their murder rates.

The gangs that commit most of the murders need replacements for their own losses, and recruits often don't have much choice about joining the local gang.

(How accurate are those numbers?  Not very, I would guess, and, if anything, likely to be lower than the real numbers since some murders must go unreported.)

It Is Intended To Attract Females:  But the company probably wasn't' thinking of tigresses when they designed it.
Vets with tranquilizer darts, drones, and even a powerful breed of hunting dogs haven't been able to track down and take out a dangerous tiger in India suspected of killing 13.  So now, forest rangers near Pandharkawada are turning to a bottle of something they hope will make the tigress "roll and cheek-rub" and send her into "absolute heaven."  That would be Calvin Klein's Obsession cologne, the latest weapon in the hunt for the tigress named T1, who has been eluding searchers for months, and who spurred a Supreme Court ruling last month allowing her to be killed if necessary, per the Independent.
Good luck to the Indian forest rangers.

As Happens Too Often, The Kindest Thing To Do is to assume Trump is joking.
Donald Trump says he finds Saudi explanation of Khashoggi death 'credible'
(Perhaps the Saudis should have taken his hint, and blamed the death on "rogue operatives".)

This New Yorker Cartoon made me smile.

Apple's Tim Cook Wants A Retraction; Bloomberg Is Sticking By Its Story On The Malicious Chinese Computer Chips:  As far as I know, this BBC story has the essential facts on the dispute right.
Apple chief executive Tim Cook has called for the retraction of a story alleging Chinese infiltration in its and other major firms' infrastructure.
. . .
Businessweek has said it stands by its reporting.

"Bloomberg Businessweek's investigation is the result of more than a year of reporting, during which we conducted more than 100 interviews,” the publication said in a statement.

“Seventeen individual sources, including government officials and insiders at the companies, confirmed the manipulation of hardware and other elements of the attacks.
It is hard to imagine Bloomberg publishing this story without hard evidence — and it is almost as hard to imagine Cook calling for a retraction without a thorough internal investigation.

(Here's the Businessweek story.)

Correction:  I am embarrassed to say that I made a silly mistake on Elizabeth Warren's ancestry.

I said her Indian ancestry was "1/1024th or less"; I should have said between 1/64th and 1/1024th, since the report said she had an Indian ancestor between 6 and 10 generations back.

I've corrected the mistake in the original post.

(How did I make the mistake?  I saw the phrase at another site, and didn't bother to do the simple arithmetic to check it.)

Dr. Kivelson's Clever Dinner Meetings:  When I wrote about physicist Margaret Kivelson, I mentioned her Wednesday dinner meetings, but I should say a little more, since they are such a fine example of intelligent leadership.

The faculty and graduate students share a meal, and listen to and critique, informal presentations on their work.

Wednesday evening is the right time for this kind of event; it doesn't happen on a weekend when, in principle, even graduate students might have social lives.

Sitting down together for a friendly meal builds morale; it tells everyone they are members of a team, maybe even a family.

The critiques can save immense amounts of time, because often someone else will have made the same mistake a presenter is making.

The tone of the meetings, as described in the article, strikes me as just right — and I am nearly certain that Kivelson deserves most of the credit for that, too.

(I should add that her idea works for her kind of organization, but would need modifications to work in other kinds.  But the central idea, sharing ideas at regular social events, would work in most of the organizations I am familiar with.)

Worth Reading:  This Kaiser Health article on the voluntary addition of folic acid to corn flour.
Two years after the Food and Drug Administration allowed manufacturers to add folic acid — a crucial B vitamin that prevents terrible birth defects — to their corn flour, very few have done so.

A new research report found that only 10 percent of corn-masa flour and no soft corn tortillas contained folic acid, which can help prevent devastating neural tube birth defects, including spina bifida and anencephaly.  The grain is a staple food in the diet of many Latinos, who have higher rates of the disabling and sometimes fatal defects.
So far, voluntary hasn't worked very well, if that limited study is even close to correct.

The article doesn't explain why corn wasn't included when folic acid was mandated for other grains, two decades ago.  It was less commonly used, then.

Nor does it explain why it would take so long to add corn to the list, now — but I don't doubt they are right about the time required.

(folic acid and other folates and Masa)

Congratulations To New York Mayor Bill De Blasio:   According to Advocates for Children of New York, the number of homeless children has soared while he has been mayor.
Tonight, about one out of every 10 students in New York City will sleep in a homeless shelter or in the homes of relatives.  That's more children than at any other time since city records have been kept
(I'm quoting from the local print version.)

The number of homeless children was growing before de Blasio became mayor at the beginning of 2014; if anything, judging by a graph accompanying the article, the number has grown faster since then.

The repairer, Eliza Shapiro, does not blame the mayor for this massive failure, does not mention anything he should have done, or should not have done.

Perhaps I am too cynical, but I suspect she might have said something if he were a conservative Republican, rather than a "progressive" Democrat.

(Caveat:  As their name says, the group producing these numbers is an advocacy group, so we shouldn't be surprised if their numbers not absolutely accurate.

(Bill de Blasio))

Classic Joke 2:  There are many versions of this joke; here's the simplest I've seen:
In Heaven, the English are the policemen, the French are the cooks, and the Germans are the mechanics.

In Hell, the English are the cooks, the French are the mechanics, and the Germans are the policemen.
(You might have some fun adding other nationalities to that joke.)

What the joke appeals to, of course, is our sense that there is some truth in national stereotypes — and I think there often is.

(You can make a similar joke in the United States by appealing to state differences; for example, in Heaven the cooks come from Louisiana.  The rest is left as an exercise.)

The Deficit For The Fiscal Year Ending In September Reached $779 Billion:  And is projected to reach more than $1 trillion, soon.

That isn't what Donald Trump said would happen during the 2016 campaign.  Then, Trump was claiming he could eliminate, not just the deficit, but the national debt, then about $19 trillion.  To eliminate it now in, say, seven years, would require us to run a yearly surplus of about $3 trillion.

If you would like to figure out how that could be done, here are some numbers to play with.

It's not a trivial problem.

If An Ordinary Politician Did This:  You'd suspect they were trying to lose an election.

With Trump, it's hard to tell, but perhaps subconsciously . . .

(Don't miss the unintentional joke.)

The Turks Have Been Bugging The Saudis:  It's not terribly important, but it is interesting.

By claiming to have an audio recording of Jamal Khashoggi's murder, the Turks are admitting that they bugged the Saudi consulate.  (Or that they have an agent inside who could make or access a recording.)

The Middle East is not a high-trust place.

Another Joke from the Russian collection:
As an ex-KGB agent, Vladimir Putin knows how to make a Happy Meal cry.
(That may seem absurd, but I am not absolutely sure he can't do it.)

Who Will Win Three Weeks From Today?  The Democrats will win the House, the Republicans the Senate.  That's the conventional wisdom, and I think the conventional wisdom is right, this time.

(It usually is.)

When last I looked, FiveThirtyEight was giving the Democrats 6 chances in 7 of winning the House.  That seems about right to me, though I think their predicted gain, 40 seats, is a little high.  (I should mention that the British bettors are giving the Democrats about a 65 percent chance, last I looked.)

It is too early, I think, to make a useful Senate prediction.

(The Wikipedia article on the House election has gobs of data, and a link to the 2016 election.)

That Baby Megan Markle Is Expecting?  When born next spring he or she will be an American citizen, as well as being seventh in line for the throne.

Markle is an American citizen and legally married.  She's in the process of becoming a British citizen, but that "takes years", according to the article.  (The article doesn't say whether she plans to renounce her American citizenship, after that.)

Chinese Money Often Comes With Chinese Racism:  That's the hard lesson Kenyans are now learning, according to this New York Times article.

The racism is of the crudest sort, separate bathrooms, denying Kenyans responsible jobs, calling them "monkeys", and so on.

The resemblances of the current Chinese regime to pre-World War I Imperial Germany are disturbing, to say the least.

(After the election, Barack Obama could do us and Kenya a favor by going there and speaking out against Chinese racism and neo-colonialism.)
