This is so grossly sexist and hyper hypocritical. If she was a man, she would have been fired years ago.

She has proved, over the last 7-years, that she is a disaster. She has decimated IBM.

Laying off more and more workers is NOT the solution right now.

First priority is to get rid of the root cause of the troubles, Ginni Rometty. This is a no brainer.

This is pretty personal for I. I owe most of what in life to IBM. I am still very devoted to IBM. I hate to see IBM going down the drain because of one person’s total incompetence.

It Will Be DECADES Before Pope Francis’ Updated “Lord’s Prayer” Makes It Into English.

The U.K. Catholic Church is NOT defying the pope or Rome. They would never do that. To much to lose, especially in ‘Church of England‘ U.K.

They are just exploiting a VALID technicality.

The official prayers for all languages are contained in a Vatican-approved, language-specific missal.

The NEW Lord’s Prayer, as yet, will ONLY appear in the Italian missal. That, obviously, is not what is used in the U.K.

It takes years, if not decades, for the vernacular versions to be translated (from the Latin) and approved by the Vatican. Hence, why there will be a long, long delay before English speaking Catholics will have to re-learn the Lord’s Prayer.

But, rest assured, the pope has the right & authority to change the Lord’s Prayer.

Pope Francis Gives INTO Temptation And Changes The “Lord’s Prayer”!

I wrote about this in December 2018.

HUGE change, but it will not be instantaneous.

It will first appear in the Italian Missal — which has yet to be published.

It will then take years before it percolates into the other Missals — especially English.

What is bothering many is that the Pope’s change will ONLY apply to the Catholic version. So, we will now have two versions of the Lord’s Prayer; the Catholic version and the non-Catholic version.

What fun.

However, as I said in my December 2018 post, I do AGREE with the pope (for a rare change).

Jailed Cardinal George Pell’s Appeal Re. Child Abuse Is Taking Place In Australia Right NOW.

by Anura Guruge

George Pell (b. 1941, 77-years old) was convicted of ‘sodomy’
in December 2018.

He was given a 6-year prison sentence.

He has been serving that sentence since at least February 2019 (if not earlier).

This was an APPEAL, for having conviction completely overturned, that was filed earlier this year.

If he wins this appeal he will be released from prison.

If he loses he will have to finish his 6-year sentence. He will not be asking for it to be reduced.

‘Free The Nipple’, In Style, En Masse, In New York, Thanks To Artist Spencer Tunick.

So, this, of course, exceeds anything we have managed to achieve in New Hampshire — the Hampton Beach topless events notwithstanding.

This was protesting the Facebook and Instagram ban on photographs of the female nipple, though the whole issue of ‘Free The Nipple‘ is still very relevant especially after the New Hampshire Supreme Court, inexplicably, claimed that it was NOT discriminatory to ban the female nipple but not the male.

So, it is good that the fight continues.

I am a supporter. I believe in equal rights to both sexes when it comes to going topless — a right I exercise near daily in the Summer.

So, here is to “Free The Nipple“.


August 23, 2015 — Hampton Beach, NH.

Kim Jong Un EXECUTES Envoy Over Failed Talks With Donald Trump? How Is That Possible?

by Anura Guruge


Click image to access the ‘Bloomberg’ original. Google for more.


This is beyond the bloody pale!

A dictator executing a government official over some failed talks — even if it was with Trump.

There should be International OUTRAGE — led by the U.S. Congress. This shouldn’t be allowed to go unpunished.

I am in shock.

When I saw the headlines I had to read it TWICE to make sure that I had read it correctly.

And this is Trump’s pal? That says something. Says a lot.

Who Is In Charge Of Satellites Being Launched Into Earth Orbit?

by Anura Guruge


Click to access ‘space.com’ original.


Click to access a pretty informative and easy to follow presentation.



Do YOU know the answer?

There is NO SINGLE International Body, say the IAU, in charge.

In the case of U.S. companies — or foreign companies planning to do business with the U.S. — the F.C.C. grants a license, but it appears that a few companies have skirted this and have had their satellites launched aboard.

What is the big deal?

Well, this 60-satellite SpaceX (Elon Musk) Starlink might look cool for a few days, BUT do you really want it marring your view of SPACE — at the Universe?

And this is only the start.

The entire SpaceX train, for providing global Internet access, will consist of over a 1,000 satellites!

And other companies, including Amazon, plan to join with thousands of their own.

Soon, and I mean in years, we will have THOUSANDS of small satellites in low Earth orbit. It will get in the way of us being able to enjoy the stars.

First we had Indians littering space. Then the Israelis crashed onto the moon. Now this.

This has to be controlled before we MESS UP SPACE.
