Anyway, seems to be the time of year to receive the various annual statements. Tell you what, they havent half taken a kicking. One of my pots is down and worth 18% less than i put in since leaving that job in 2018!
Anyone else had any recently? If you have and havent checked out its performance, would suggest you do, especially if you are nearing retirement!
When this mess eventually ends, whenever that may be, but it will. What will be done with China? Obviously its unlikely that there will be any aggressive measures and nor should there be. But should other countries look to put political pressure on their Government (or some other means) to try and get their population into the 21st centuryin terms of food hygiene, diet (for want of another word) and the medieval way in which they consume the types of protein which has put the world in this position.
China are trying to put themselves forward as a modern, technologically advanced, and somewhat wealthy nation (not for the majority of the population to be fair, but those in decision making positions of influence are), yet Coronovirus is not the first ill to come from their nation. SARS is one, but other people probably know of others.
Will China care? Can they be influenced?Can global public pressure influence anything if everyone just refused to buy their products? Will people just forget about this?
You can argue this isnt Chinas issue, its a Global one, as some newspapers have started writing about today. But the direct link between the consumption of bats and Chinese food markets and the direct links to viral outbreaks were papered back in 2007. It was spooky that this was called out 12 years previously and came true. Are there others?
Swansea boxer (Works in Amazon too i think?) fighting tomorrow night in Texas against Mexican Julio Cesar Martinez for the WBC flyweight title. This is on the Mikey Garcia undercard and is a tough fight for Harris, but he is a game underdog in this fight. The Mexican is a high quality fighter though and a few steps up for Harris.
Will be on at stupid oclock, but good luck to the fella
Now this is quite nerdy and may not be quite to the taste of the Planet Swans massif. However, if anyone has an interest in the Universe and the science and ideas behind it, get stuck into these documentaries. Utterly mind blowing stuff.
Quasars, Pulsars, Black Holes, Gravatars, Magnetars etc.. awesome
Will no doubt disappear off the page fast.. but seriously.. wow!
