    Trickle down: I think it works if applied to medium to small business, and I think everything should be done to favour those businesses: including major constrants on the practices and size of the giant multinationals: ie Microsoft, Amazon, big pharmaceuticals, big finance. Will Roger coined...

    All true, John. The most important point of that for any particular country is where the money gets spent or invested. The poor man, spending 100% of his money to live each month, spends almost all within his community. Other businesses also then take some profit, pay some taxes etc.. A...

    About 100,000 visas and green cards were affected by the sudden ban. So that many people from those 7 countries were in the process of travelling to or from the USA at that time. Presumably this level of travel has been going on day in day out for years. Most of those were visit visas...

    New StarRanger-1A VTAL Aircraft

    That looks nice, but your StarLite-2A looks excellent. With 134 kg payload, 140 km/hr speed (90 mph) and 4.5 hours endurance I'd think every army should want them for frontline resupply. It sure outperforms the competition... but how do the Yamaha and the Schiebel (and the Starlite??) end up...

    Sure, an open door policy is crazy. But, except for parts of Europe for a brief period, no-one does that. There were already long processes in place. People who had taken years to get a visa suddenly found it snatched away. People like this: The two Iraqis who arrived at JFK challenged the...

    This phrase was coined by Will Rogers (I had always thought he was just a performing cowboy .... but he was a real one first, and then became a performer and a very astute observer, eventually having a nationally syndicated newspaper column). Here’s the quote: This election was lost four and...

    Never happy... the Aussie farmer. :-) Said Hanrahan P.J. Hartigan ("John O’Brien") "We’ll all be rooned," said Hanrahan In accents most forlorn Outside the church ere Mass began One frosty Sunday morn. The congregation stood about, Coat-collars to the ears, And talked of stock and crops...

    Global cooling

    Chris and Jordan sum it up pretty well. It's a helluva sketchy data set we are working with, 80% of the world is ocean, ocean temperature data at best goes back to 1956, and the technology/methods of measuring have changed four times in that period. And anyone who has ever played with...

    Kubota Diesel a long term project.

    Sounds like a great project!! But I do worry about reliability. I always imagined a diesel engine was tougher and more reliable than an equivalent petrol engine. They are tougher and more reliable, but we are generally not really talking equivalent: the diesel is big, heavily built, and low...
