amazon - OMG, that was sloppy editing, wasn't it? I wonder if the Court Stenpgrapher did it on purpose, knowing that redacting it for the public was just more cheating. But if I knew that, I would certainly never tell!

Delaware - Short answer - because Delaware's incorporation laws are almost as favorable for corporations as off-shoring is. I wouldn't say, "Everybody knows that," because I don't believe that even close to everybody does. But it's not all that difficult to know, either.

Netherlands - Excellent plan. Is it feasible? By which I mean do Republicans have to sign on?

Vid - BOOK THESE GUYS ON COMEDY CENTRAL! Or if all else fails, maybe PBS. SRSLY< they need wider exposure.

Women need to make more than men because in most households women have more responsibilities.

Trauma Therapy: "The World Health Organization recognizes only two effective, evidence-based, scientifically validated therapies: cognitive behavioral therapy with a trauma focus, or TF-CBT, already well known; and the more recent eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy." I hope that they continue towards assisting those in need, and learning the interventions needed for these victims.

UN: . Lordy, it's about time. I sure hope that this gets passed

Women & College: What Gloria said so well.

Upworthy: Bless our little ones, with care, and tenderness. I wish them nothing but Love.

Whole Foods: What a sweet young lady!! I read about this, and am excited at this. Kudos for her entrepreneurship!!

Upworthy2: Wonderful, wonderful !!! The "Language of Humor" needs to be be spread to the far corners of our land.

Lot of work and links. Thank you, JL for these and your post.

Thanks Judi.
However, I feel it is necessry to add some links here, important reading to get a real understanding of what's going on, has been going on in Syria and specifically Aleppo lately.
"The real news" is not telling the whole story. I am beyond sick of ll the propaganda.!!

Williams Pitt is so spot on and for that reason so terribly depressing. The whole world is going to hell in a handbasket when either Hillary or Drumpf take the Oval Office.

Trauma Therapy: Mental Health a global priority, fight world famine that's about to unfold, lower CO2 emissions by 50%… save our seas, save… Where to start, how to prioritize?

Air strikes on Aleppo Hospital: Without question definitely targeted. So UN proposal: better late than never, but really long overdue. But who's going to enforce it and who is going to mete out punishment if perpetrators are ever caught and sentenced?

Salary gender gap: Sigh… next some states will order us back into the kitchen, but also making us pay back the loans that got us through college in the first place.

Shadow lobbying: as if lobbying isn't shady and bad enough.

Dutch parliament for nuclear weapons ban: I'm confused; is this a Terse Tidbit or a Musing? I would have thought it quite hopeful though rather unrealistic.

The odd couple: Just loved that video. Humour is the best foundation for building bridges. It is universal and when people laugh they can not hate.

Thanks JL for another great set of links.
