How will Ukraine retaking Crimea devastate Russia?
Russia and Ukraine's conflict goes back decades before February 24, 2022. Russian aggressiveness has remained consistent since Vladimir Putin took office in the late 1990s. The current war, however, began with the unlawful annexation of Crimea in 2014. The insane aspect is that NATO and the rest of the world sat back and watched as Russian soldiers seized Crimea in a manner remarkably similar to how Nazi Germany grabbed Austria, Czechoslovakia, and the Rhineland before launching its assault of Poland and beginning World War II. 💣⚒⚙

Driving Around and Thinking
Did you see that movie "Pretty in Pink" directed by John Hughes starring Molly Ringwald? It was a great film and one of my favorites when I was a teenager. Who couldn't relate to that girl? She was so cool. She was poor, but she had a part-time job. She was the daughter of an alcoholic father who was still nursing a broken heart over her mother who left them years ago. Since her father doesn't hold a job, she can't afford all the expensive clothes that she sees many of the "popular" girls wearing, so she makes her own out of cheap and used material and creates her own style. She tolerates the peers that make fun of her. Although she doesn't have any cheerleaders telling her to do well in school, she wants to be successful in life so she makes her education important and disciplines herself to achieve excellent marks. She's a role model for any teens who feel lost and alone and not sure what to do at the doorway to adulthood. I loved that movie. I mention it now because there was one specific scene that seems to deja-vu through my mind as I begin the second half of my life. The scene where she is sitting in her cute little pink car and staring at the "richies" houses. "I wonder if they know how amazing their house is?" she asks her friend. Thirty-three years have passed since I graduated from high school. I've had many jobs, many cars, and seen many cities and towns. Yet whenever I see a house that I think is charming and beautiful, I park and pause for a moment and ask the same thing - "I wonder if they know how amazing their house is?"

The Chinese Debt Trap Doesn't Exist Because China Has A Far Better Plan

Will China become the next technological powerhouse？
It is very difficult. The Chinese are so smart that the projects with low investment and quick results are almost done and the rest are hard to crack. Private companies can't afford to burn through the money. Look how well we're doing on the Internet, because it's mostly servers and people. Equipment manufacturing, chemical technology, pharmaceutical, a little innovation, need a lot of capital and resources to support. Private companies are struggling, but the boss can also take out money to engage in research and development, it is really a very ambitious entrepreneur. Moreover, private companies are less able to attract talent. Highly educated people, mostly gathered in the city of Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. Private companies are often in the suburbs to control costs. Manufacturing enterprises are basically in the suburbs, state-owned enterprises may be near the county town, private enterprises may be in the village. Biochemical ring material, the whole network group scene. Traditional engineering, everyone discouraged. To enter the factory is to drill into the suburbs and valleys. It is human nature to seek advantages and avoid disadvantages. Stay in big cities, urban areas, when the code farming, finance, examination, examination editing, which is not sweet? National AREA A engineering line 270, Tsinghua only 320, literature, history and philosophy volume heaven, I dare not imagine before. People have already voted with their feet. They would rather study literature, history and philosophy than study engineering. How can we do r&d if we don't have access to factories? State-owned enterprises have some so-called hidden welfare, hukou, or can attract a group of people into the factory. And then what? After working for a while, it becomes clear that r&d personnel in state-owned enterprises are no problem at the bottom. At this time, who would not transfer to administration or management if he had some connections? When you don't have something, people think you don't have the ability. When you do, there will be a bunch of people jumping out to appear to have the ability. The patent is a service invention, the final interpretation of the right, all in the unit. Looking at China, how many researchers can make big money? A picture of food and clothing, are fast rolling circles. And there is a huge gap between research and development, two worlds. The leek of the university is too curly, so everyone does short flat quick, do flower work. Usually, the more practical something is, the harder it is to post. In the past, I was a pure researcher, but now WHEN I look at the literature from the perspective of industry, I often wonder what the hell it is and what is the use of it. I still appoints university institute volume king's strength very much, but, these people are in the volume system, the volume cap, nature can't set his mind at practical RESEARCH and development. Head university, a lot of go abroad, turn computer finance, take an examination of public, take an examination of plait, look for pit, chase after a hat. Private enterprises are remote and unstable, and state-owned enterprises are depressed. Tiankeng brothers are mocked by the crowd, traditional engineering earn less money. After all, how many people are still able and willing to work in the field of scientific research? To tell you the truth, I'm so confident in r&d now that people who are better than me and smarter than me basically don't do it anymore. Now the international situation is tense, I actually have that kind of national science and technology development depends on my sense of mission. Many of the post-1990 generation have been promoted to be leaders, and those who are in school or just graduated have a better grasp of the direction of industrial development than those who are experienced in scientific research. Young people are full of leek, thinking about how to keep their jobs, but not as stable as us, no development, the bottom of the middle-aged scientific research workers on product research and development, scientific and technological progress more pure enthusiasm. Recently, we bottom of the old man, formed a flexible Buddha research and development team, with a pure heart, in China's scientific and technological progress, making insignificant contributions, do not care about the future peach will be picked by who, only care about today to do something meaningful.
