"These quotes could not be more Australian and I am 1,000% here for it." Also, 7 other things worth knowing today.
Hey, Bill! great interview! About 7 other things number 1, I'm a perfect example of stress helping the immune system. I'd been facing regular stress from the time I was one-and-a-half years old, when my younger brother was born with a congenital defect that took him to hospital most of his first two years, leaving me with my older (by three years) "dictator" brother, for long periods. The daily stress ended when I met my second wife, Jackie, in 1979, when I was over 50 years old. Unfortunately, it came back in spades when she had a 26-day almost fatal bout with Legionnaires' disease five years ago. For the last three years I have faced mostly daily stress due to the disease after-effects and my own slow aging. But I'm now almost 95 years old and have not has a day of illness for about 60 years.
Great AU story!
We forget about “eustress” as opposed to “distress” . Eustress is “good” stress: how is that translated to mice?
I plan to watch/listen to the interview once I have the opportunity; this is the first time I can put a face to your name, Bill! You look younger than I envisioned (!)
Google Stadia platform: my opinion is that there are MORE than enough gaming platforms- it’s fine that Google doesn’t have a share of that
Hand tattoos… Hey, if they don’t negatively affect an airman’s military performance, then No problem!! It’s also encouraging to note that waivers can be approved for certain medical conditions- again, as long as they can maintain their worldwide readiness, then all is well …
It’s Wonderful to hear how a child’s experience affects his/her chosen profession as an adult. Almost everyone wants to be in a position to help others. This does show, too, how role modeling is so effective-
I loved the daycare part. Dropping off the kids! It truly takes a village anywhere!
This is not a comment about this post specifically, but the newsletter generally.
I so much enjoy, and look forward to reading the newsletter each morning.
It is missed on the weekend, and anticipate the return on Monday.
I’ve been to Australia, but not quite that far out, and that pretty much sounds like a pub. They have good food and it is a nice place to meet good people. In the outback, there aren’t fast food restaurants or chain restaurants, so you have to rely on pubs. Great read!
Great Aussie story! Certainly will stop in for a free beer next time in AU!
Fun story on the bar!
I have lost confidence in the Supreme Court as an institution and a branch of government. Two of the justices will have outright lied during confirmations when pressed on questions regarding their position on Roe v. Wade.
I have lost confidence in the executive branch as a result of the last president inciting insurrection to block the will of the people for his own personal benefit.
I have lost confidence in the legislative branch as they pass few laws, block laws from even being being considered, block SCOTUS confirmations and make virtually every decision on the basis of their donors.
Someone, one day, will write an addendum to the book How Democracies Die. It will be about how our democracy died.
Almost worth driving 17hrs and 6 mins just to see the place!
