Wherever there is a need, the free market steps in to fill it — except in New York, where senselessly micromanaging authoritarians won’t even allow pet-sitting:
Health Department rules ban anyone from taking money to care for an animal outside a licensed kennel — and the department has warned a popular pet-sitting app that its users are breaking the law. [Chad] Bacon, a former zookeeper and wildlife researcher, signed up for the app to help make ends meet while he was between jobs, but did enough business that he now makes his living from it full-time.

Congrats, bureaucrats. You’ve thrown him out of work. With luck, maybe you can get him on the welfare roll.

The concept of merit is racist. It will not permit equality. In utopia, it will be eradicated. This is already underway in academia:
To “solve the problem of meritocracy,” one professor argues that elite universities should use an “admissions lottery” to select which students they accept.

Something sinister is happening at a handful of luxury Mexican resorts — at least according to one lawyer and some tourists who’ve vacationed there. After a young woman died under mysterious circumstances at the Iberostar Paraiso Resort in Playa Del Carmen, her family and attorneys have been looking for a plausible explanation for what happened to her.

No one tells me I’m too old to do this when I’m on the trail. Young hikers on the trail talk to me and don’t ask how old I am. We talk about trail details, such as upcoming snowfields, water sources, exposure to sun. Every passerby greets me, often taking time to chat for a while.

Whether this continued rise in licensed concealed carry translates to political action on gun law reform, such as elimination of so-called “gun-free zones,” is speculative at best. One thing is clear, however. With a growing number of Americans going through the process to legally carry a concealed sidearm, it is going to be much harder for the gun control lobby and their allies on Capitol Hill and in state legislatures to restrict where and when people can carry.

STEVE JOB'S LAST WORDS


I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.
However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.
At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.
In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of god of death drawing closer…
Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth…
Should be something that is more important:
Perhaps relationships, perhaps art, perhaps a dream from younger days
Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me.
But accounts of Steve Jobs’ final moments by his family members and by biographer Walter Isaacson make no mention of a deathbed essay or final words uttered by Steve Jobs about the dangers of a life devoted to pursuing wealth.
Steve Jobs’ sister, the novelist Mona Simpson, recounted the Apple co-founders final moments in a eulogy that was published by the New York Times at the time of his death in October 2011. In the eulogy, Simpson recalled Steve Jobs’ final words and his final hours:
He seemed to be climbing.
But with that will, that work ethic, that strength, there was also sweet Steve’s capacity for wonderment, the artist’s belief in the ideal, the still more beautiful later.
Steve’s final words, hours earlier, were monosyllables, repeated three times.
Before embarking, he’d looked at his sister Patty, then for a long time at his children, then at his life’s partner, Laurene, and then over their shoulders past them.
Steve’s final words were:

OH WOW. OH WOW. OH WOW.
