NASA IS WORRIED ABOUT SPACE JUNK AKA ORBITAL DEBRIS
9-28-18, Currently, there are about 4,000 intact spacecraft living in orbit around Earth, only 1,800 of which are operational. Yet, many companies want to dramatically increase that number. Satellite operators are eager to launch thousands of probes that can beam internet connectivity down to Earth, providing global coverage. SpaceX has filed applications with the FCC to launch nearly 12,000 internet-beaming satellites — first, an initial constellation of 4,425 probes, followed by a constellation of 7,518. Meanwhile, the European company OneWeb received approval to launch up to 720 satellites from the FCC, and it recently requested permission to launch an additional 1,260.

11-24-14, Guardian -- With so much concern about screen time, board games are a sociable reminder of the real dynamics of family life but sadly many of today's children have never enjoyed them. Board games teach useful lessons about taking turns and handling defeat. They provide an outlet for tension and rivalry. They require family members to sit down and interact with each other – increasingly important in a world where we spend much of our time in separate rooms, triple-screening and arguing over Skype about whose turn it is to change the toilet roll. But perhaps best of all, they remind us how to play.
War Hawk John Bolton is Fired [finally]
9-13-19, Fox News -- The departure of National Security Adviser John Bolton this week was the culmination of months of conflicts between Bolton and officials at all levels of Pres Trump's administration who were lobbying for his ouster. ... Sec State Mike Pompeo is poised to exert even more influence on foreign policy now that Bolton is gone with the possibility of him assuming the role of national security adviser on top of his current position. This would follow what's called the "Kissinger model" [in reference to when Henry Kissinger served in both roles under Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford].
