Art Exhibit

I ventured out into the rain to go to the Pompidou Centre to see a Georgia O’Keeffe exhibit. I wouldn’t have gone, due to the weather, if I hadn’t already made a reservation. I’m glad I went. It was very nice. She had an interesting life which included a wild love affair and then marriage with Max  Stieglitz, a photographer who also showed her work at his gallery. She eventually travelled to New Mexico and that is where she produced some of her most famous art, although she did do some great pai...

Some states are more prone to animal attacks than others, especially ones with large human populations or levels of tourism that encroach on public lands where certain types of animals live. The outdoors site Outforia looked at public animal attacks data lo...

Covid-19 Diary : Sunday 8 August, 2021

May I start off with a request/reminder.  There’s a reader survey in Friday’s regular newsletter, asking for your opinion on when things will return back to normal in the US.  If you’ve not already responded to that survey, could I ask you to please do so now.  A collation of responses, and comparing them to previous times the survey has been held, will be featured this coming Friday. The key thing about any survey is of course that it should have a reasonably large number of responses, from pe...

Tuesday saw the world total of reported Covid cases pass through 200 million.  Here in the US we’re just over 36 million cases, and rising now at a new rate of 100k or greater every day. I created a new chart, comparing the seven day average new case count in the US for each day this year with the same day last year.  This helps us to answer a key question – are we winning or losing the battle with Covid?  Are we better off? As you can see, for all of June and most of July, the answer was triu...
