But the good news about humanity is that no matter how tough the morass in which we find ourselves, there is always an array of solutions.

The stakes couldn’t be higher and the expectations lower. It was the last chance to broker an agreement –or at least, an initial agreement—with Iran and thus avoid a disaster. But few believed it could be done.
It is true that the clock is ticking very fast. Nobody knows for sure how much time Iran needs to really reach a “breakdown” (the real capacity to have enough enriched uranium to build up a bomb), but estimations oscillate between six months and a year, or even shorter --quite…Continue
Pareto's Law (80/20 Principle): This law states that 80% of the results come from 20% of the causes. For example, in business 80% of the sales come from 20% of the good customers/clients
Now, from observing our National Political System, I believe that 80% of the funding (if not more) of candidates election funding come from big money special interest sources (the 20%) buying: Special Access/IOUs when they support political candidates continually soliciting/begging their support.for…Continue

“If we are to have partners for peace, then we must first be partners in sympathetic recognition that all mankind possesses in common like aspirations and hunger, like ideals and appetites, like purposes and frailties, a like demand for economic advancement. The divisions between us are artificial and transient. Our common humanity is God-made and enduring” Dwight Eisenhower (1955).
