First two are interesting sections 1. on the election betting market 2. on solar energy in rural Africa. Components are failing. Right to repair essential. Tthe cheapness of quality of all the components is a real weakness. I have Chicom solar lights on outdoor sculptures here in Vermont. Some work for years, some work for 3 months. Cannot be fixed after they break. More e-waste.
Spotted this beautiful German Shepherd in the back of this truck on a food stop in Phelan, California, on one of our three-hour weekend drives to the desert. I tried for a bit sharper image but just then my battery died. ☹ Aaugh! As Snoopy and his friends would say!!!
