  "The flourishing art in Florence, however, derived from an older Florentine emphasis on education that consisted not merely of learning the classics but also of mastering the basic skills needed by merchants ad bankers: numbers and mathematics. The Renaissance began not as a movemet in arts and letters but as a practical, mathematical revival to help bankers and merchants perform the increasingly difficult tasks of converting money, calculating interest, and determining profit and loss. In 1202, Leonardo Fibonacci, also called Leonardo Pisano after his home-town of Pisa, published _Liber Abaci_, in which he introduced to Europe what we now refer to as Arabic numerals, even though the Arabs had themselves borrowed the numerals from India. This simplified system offered a great advantage over the clumsy Roman numerals, which virtually defied multiplication and division. The introduction of Arabic numerals eliminated the need for an abacus, since merchants could calculate the new numbers more easily in their heads or on a slip of paper. The universities, the government, and religious authorities expressed grave suspicions of the new numbers, which came from infidels and which merchants and clerks used without the reliable abacus. In stubborn defiance of these shop-keepers' numbers, many European universities continued to use the abacus and to teach mathematics with Roman numerals until as late as the 17th century Most governments also refused to accept the use of Arabic numerals for official purposes, claiming that they could be even forged, even by a person with little education." --- Jack McIver Weatherford 1997 _The History of Money: From SandStone to CyberSpace_ pg85 (citing Rene Taton & A.J. Pomerans 1964 _The Beginnings of Modern Science from 1450 to 1800_ pg15)

  "The hypothesis is the principal intellectual instrument in research. Its function is to indicate new experiments and observations and it therefore sometimes leads to discoveries even when not correct itself. We must resist the temptation to become too attached to our hypothesis, and strive to judge it objectively and modify it or discard it as soon as contrary evidence is brought to light. Vigilance is needed to prevent our observations and interpretations being biased in favour of the hypothesis. Suppositions can be used without being believed." --- William I.B. Beveridge 1951, 1953, 1957, 1970, 2015, 2017 _The Art of Scientific Investigation_ pg52 (quoted in Joseph Stewart Fruton 1992 _A Skeptical BioChemist_ pg33)

a few GOP congress-critters finally muster courage to discuss Red China dishonest/un-fair/fraudulent trade practices which have been blatant for decades
"...'I come to the conclusion that they're going to do everything legal or illegal, immoral or moral, ethically or unethically, to dominate us in trade and dominate the world, and be number one.   And they're well on that.', senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) told reporters during a briefing about their trip.   'They deny all these -- that they steal [intellectual property], that they subsidize their industry, that they make us give up our trade secrets to do business in Red China, that they steal our trademarks.', he continued.   'There's no enforcement by their government, they have non-tariff trade barriers, they have fake products and counterfeiting, and mandatory licensing practices [aimed at creating barriers to entry into markets].', he said.   'And you wonder then, why they have a $350G trade deficit with us.'   The trip, planned months in advance by senator Steve Daines (R-MT) and attended by senators Grassley, David Perdue (R-GA), Ben Sasse (R-NE), and Ron Johnson (R-WI), occurred just as a trade fight between the USA and Red China was heating up...   'We were on bullet trains where there used to be dirt roads 20 years ago.   Literally.', Perdue said.   In contrast, he said, 'It's taken 19 years [with our bureaucracy, subsidies, requirements for multiple regulatory studies & hearings & permits] to try to deepen the Port of Savannah 5 feet.   They created their third largest port in 5 years.'   They also visited head-quarters of DJI, a Red Chinese company and the world's leader in consumer drone technology, which has 70% to 80% in global market share for consumer drones...   Red China's Alibaba can have a cloud computing business in the USA, but a USA company is not allowed to have a cloud computing business in Red China.   If Oracle wanted to set up a data center in Red China, it would be required to turn over source code and other information [key intellectual property developed over 30 years for tens of milliions of dollars], although the same is not required of Alibaba in the USA, they said..."
There is a fallacy, held by some business-people, and congress-critters since the 1700s, that the large population of China means they are a great market for USA products.   Further, that therefor, USA business-people and government must bend over backward to do whatever the Chinese governments have required to be allowed to trade with the subjects of China.   It has never resulted in significant profit to the USA citizenry, but the business-people and government-people continue to think that if they make just a few more concessions, if they just ignore a few more abuses, it will generate great profit.

San Jacinto county Texas judge indicted for burglary of clerk's office, tampering with government document, & forgery
"...In Texas, the county judge is the chief executive officer of the county's government.   In some counties, including San Jacinto County, the county judge also carries out certain judicial duties...   Following the action by the grand jury, San Jacinto county sheriff Greg Capers arrested...and escorted the county judge to the jail for booking and processing, the sheriff told Breitbart Texas.   'About an hour later', Capers said, 'the State Commission on Judicial Conduct announced [the judge's] suspension without pay...   Monday afternoon, precinct 1 justice of the peace [JP] Beth Sewell allowed [the judge] to be released on a personal recognizance bond...   not having insurance and for driving on the wrong side of a roadway...   The county judge announced he would not run for re-election in his current office following these incidents.   Instead, [the judge] announced he would seek election to the position of justice of the peace for Precinct 1.   During the March primary election, [the judge] finished second in a 6-way race to Christina McGee.   His name is currently on the ballot for the run-off election scheduled for May...   The Commissioners Court met in emergency session on Monday and appointed precinct 4 commissioner Mark Nettuno to temporarily fill the position of county judge while Lovett remains under suspension, Wright said..."

  "French foundlings in the 18th century, removed from their nurses at the age of 7, went back to the institutions that had sent them out in the first place and, before being apprenticed, spent a few years learning reading, writing, arithmetic, and, above all, as the regulations stated, religion and 'the fear of God'. Elementary schools were not a substitute for apprenticeship... secondary schools. These were fairly elite institutions, originally intended to prepare pupils either for the university or the more literate professions. They taught what was considered 'true literacy' (that is, Latin) and were sometimes called grammar schools because their main subject was Latin grammar. They remained elite institutions; what changed in this period was their clientele, and, to some degree, their curriculum... Some schools that were founded in the 16th century included such gentlemanly skills as fencing and horsemanship, but more than anything else every gentlemen as now assumed to need a solid literary education. This meant the kind of training in the classics that the 15th- and 16th-century humanists had developed, relying on Latin but changing the emphasis from exercises in syllogistic logic to the honing of literary skills. Paradoxically, in spite of the strong association between schools and religion, there was agrowing secularization. Schools were no longer primarily devoted to training clerics." --- Beatrice Gottlieb 1992 _The Family in the Western World from the Black Death to the Industrial Age 1350-1800_ pg166

Amazon has been importing more cheap, young, pliant, low-skilled H-1b guest-workers as "IT" house geeks than FB & Alphabet/Google/YouTube combined
"...Data reported by Statista reveals that Amazon requested to import 2,515 foreign H-1B workers in 2017, more than the 720 foreign workers that FB asked for and the 1,213 foreign workers Alphabet/Google/YouTube has attempted to bring to the USA.   In 2017, Amazon, FB, Alphabet/Google/YouTube, MSFT, Intel, and Apple all requested more foreign workers to take USA jobs than the year before.   In 2016, Amazon was one of the top 20 corporations demanding foreign workers to take jobs... tech conglomerates...hide their H-1B foreign worker hires through [cross-border bodyshops] like Cognizant, Tata, [Convergys, IBM Global Services, Accenture, ManPOWER], and Infosys... Oftentimes, importing a foreign worker on the H-1B visa is the first step in a multi-national corporations [executives'] effort to [off-shore the] job, as the foreign worker arrives in the USA [or UK or Gemany], is trained in the job, [serves as a liaison and knowledge transfer agent between the USA or UK or Gemany and the foreign facility], and then is eventually sent back over-seas with the job..."

...while most USA citizens have repeatedly told pollsters for over 25 years that the on-going failure/refusal to take reasonable, conscientious, consistent measures to defend USA borders, seek out and promptly remove illegal aliens (prioritizing the worst criminals among them, but properly handling those run across otherwise), penalize employers of illegal aliens, conduct serious background investigations of visa applicants and apply reasonable standards to consideration of those applications is unconscionable.

  "...When we're trying to [search for] something important, such as 'best salmon river in Atlantic Canada', and an ad pops up, the way we feel about the company that posted that ad is the way Gloria Steinem feels about Bill O'Reilly. We Grumpies hate 'social' media... We'd like to be dis-connected, up on the Miramichi in New Brunswick casting flies and claiming that our cell phones and lap-tops fell out of our waders. We'd also like someone to develop an app that gets rid of all apps, a no-app app; call it a 'napp'... everything...that's for sale seems to be completely disposable, and this makes us Grumpies mad. When I moved to rural New England in the 1970s, I bought a bunch of power tools. 40 years later, they still work. Albeit my old Skillsaw is down to about 60rpm... So I bought a good cordless drill a few years back. But its battery packs have quit taking a charge. I went to the hardware store to buy new batteries and found out they'd have to be special-ordered. If they still made those batteries anymore, which the hardware store clerk wasn't sure about. Then I found out I could buy a new drill, the same brand, with a pair of different 'improved' battery packs, for less than what the special-order batteries for my old ([otherwise] perfectly satisfactory) drill would cost. This is just wrong. Shortly afterward, my Shop-Vac died -- the $0.50 plastic on/off switch broke. And, you guessed it -- the price to get it ixed was more than the price of a new Shop-Vac. Build things to last...! We Grumpies may not be children of the [Great] Depression, but we're children of children of the [Great] Depression, and we grew up hearing: 'Use it up. Wear it out. Make it do, or do without.'... you can't [repair] anything anymore." --- P.J. O'Rourke 2018 _None of My Business_ pp170-172

  "A crucial factor in their changing relationship was writing (including map-making), which allowed any information given to the transplanted Europeans to be spread rapidly among them and to be made a permanent cultural possession by being committed to the pinted page. The Indians, lacking writing, could lose valuable traditional skills permanently if just one generation failed to continue them. In short, the Indians lost some of their skills while the European settlers kept theirs, added what they had learned from the Indians, and continued to receive new technological and other knowledge from Europe." --- Thomas Sowell 1998 _Conquests and Cultures_ pg295

  "Spain was not like most of the other caliphal provinces, however. It was far more de-centralized, and also, for a century at least, had a rather «simpler» economy than many, more like the economies of the rest of Western Europe, with relatively un-skilled and far more localized artisanal production, than like the economically «complex» and heavily urbanized provinces of the caliphate, Egypt or Syria or Iraq. Even its major cities, which under Arabs as under the VisiGoths were Cordoba, Seville, Merida, Toledo, Zaragoza and a few others, were for a time relatively small by comparison with those of the Eastern Mediterranean." --- Chris J.

  "For the «un-skilled» progress is easy. Given common sense conditions, it's almost guaranteed. In the words of K. Anders Ericsson, the world's leading expert on expertise, novices improve as long as they are, «1) given a task with a well-defined goal, 2) motivated to improve, 3) provided with [appropriate] feed-back, and 4) provided with ample oportunities for repetition and gradual refinements of their performance». Before long, though, the benefit of «mere practice» plateaus. To really get good at their jobs, people must advance to «deliberate practice». They must exit their comfort zone -- raise the bar [which implicitly requires them [or a teacher or coach] to already know which direction is «up», what constitutes an improvement, and which incremental improvements will result in a net improvement vs. a local improvment which will block later net improvement], to struggle to surmount it, repeat. As Ericsson and co-authors explain: «You need a particular kind of practice -- deliberate practice -- to develop expertise. When most people practice, they focus on the things they already know how to do. Deliberate practice is different. It entails considerable, specific, sustained efforts to do something you can't do well -- or even at all.»" --- Bryan Douglas Caplan 2018 _The Case Against Education: Why the Education System Is a Waste of Time and Money_ pg63 (citing K.

  "Since 1800, the world's population has increased 6-fold; yet despite this enormous increase, [average] real income per person has increased approximately 16-fold...     In [the USA], the increase is even more dramatic: in 1800, the total population was 5.3M, life expectancy was 39 [slightly longer than in England], an the real [inflation-/debasement-adjusted, average] gross domestic product per capita was $1,343 (in 2010 dollars);     in 2011, our population was 308M, our life expectancy was 78, and our GDP [per capita] was $48,800.     Thus, even while the population increased 58-fold, our life expectancy doubled, and our [average] GDP per capita increased almost 36-fold.     Such growth is un-precedented in the history of humankind.     Considering the worldwide per-capita [average] real [debasement-/inflation-adjusted] income for the previous 99.9% of human existence averaged consistently around $1 per day [$365.22/year].     That is extra-ordinary.     What explains it?     It would seem that it is due principally to the complex of institutions usually included under the term 'capitalism', since the main thing that changed between 200 years ago and the previous 100K years of human history was the introduction and embrace of so-called capitalist institutions -- particularly, private property and markets." --- James R. Otteson 2012 May "An Audacious Promise: The Moral Case for Capitalism" _Issues_ #12 (quoted in Mark Reed Levin 2017 _ReDiscovering Americanism: And the Tyranny of Regressivism_ pp220-221
