Todays Important News Stories and Analysis - Friday, December 31, 2021
Ideas and facts to make you more efficient, effective, precise, productive, accurate, self-aware, and wise.
“This daily news report serves a demographic of highly intelligent readers, and deep thinkers with a passion for ideas, critical thinking, and a desire to understand the world around them. Readers of my posts are usually tired of being patronized elsewhere by fact-less, opinionated know-nothings, misinformation, conspiracy theories, and fake news.
“The facts you ignore will come back to bite you on the ass”
On a personal note: Please excuse grammatical errors, typos, repetition, and any general nonsense, and such in this post. I am getting a bit older now, and I have about 20,000 pages of information that must get published before I leave the mortal coil. I simply write and publish more than my humble editors are able to correct. If you find enough errors you are welcome to contact me about being an editor of my work.

A 3 Minute Read - 3 Top Stories
The New Use for Abandoned Oil Rigs
Why I chose this story: I have a friend who votes “Green” and is interested in sustainability, yet they still buy 24 packs of bottled water. We’ve had arguments about what I believe is a destructive habit. She insists I’m being picky. This article shows that where the intent exists almost anything can be repurposed to serve a “Greener” vision for the future.
Ukraine Tensions: Putin Tells Biden New Sanctions Could Rupture Ties
Why I chose this story: My great passion is the study of applied game theory. All of geopolitics is a game with winners and losers. Lots of greed, anger, power-lust, nationalism, ego, incompetence, etc. If you are “intentionally ignorant” about the history and the state of the world right now, this story can be taken as written. In fact, there are so many layers to this event, many of these layers hidden or resting “between the lines” concerning Biden and Putin on a phone call with translators. It is hard to know what any of it means, even if true. Biden and Putin can’t even see each other’s body language for cold reading, by training mentalists. So, read this article carefully. Put your “fake-news” conspiracy theory thinking mind on the shelf and start Googling Ukraine, Putin, KGB, Soviet Union, Cold War, etc.
The Harmful Ableist Language You Unknowingly Use
Why I chose this story: In college, I studied a philosopher named Ludwig Wittgenstein, a genius who focused on the use and power of words. I never understood what the heck he was talking about. Now, I do and I read his book Philosophical Investigations daily (I highly recommend it). The words we think, obviously affect how we speak; and how we think; and how we speak influences how we act. A person who has an interest in personal development, self-improvement, and social intelligence would be wise to read this article.
Why I Created this Daily News Feed?
One, of the motivating factors for me in creating this daily NewsFeed, is that so many people who are intelligent, and do actually follow the news may not have an understanding of evidence-based facts, deductive reasoning, inductive reasoning, and the difference between causation and correlation? This may lead them to become conspiracy theorists or who accept sloppy journalism and truthiness and the real thing.
By offering a simple post daily (mornings EST) I hope to eliminate this problem of confusion and intentional ignorance and help you to become more effective, efficient, precise, productive, accurate, and self-aware.
