Mom: "Chapter 3, Summary of the Invention: The invention is a process for making polyethylene. The process comprises polymerizing ethylene in the presence of a catalyst system comprising an activator and a supported organometallic complex. The complex, which has "open architecture," includes a Group 4 to 6 transition metal and a bridged indenoindolyl ligand. We surprisingly found that modifying the open architecture complex to incorporate a C6-C20 hydrocarbyl amido group enables the production of polyethylene having improved flow and good rheological properties while maintaining high catalyst activity..."

53 Mixed feelings. I love the color and arrangement of the work, but neither subject looks like they're making an effort. The artist could have encouraged the child to look a little more pleasant, and the nurse appears to be reading silently and not to the child at all.

Studying For The Nursing Bored Exam - a limerick

69 Oops -- the title is Nurse Reading to a Little Girl, not "Mother."

Posted by: Wolfus Aurelius at August 07, 2020 09:43 AM (rpbg1)

70 I like the rather idealized Impressionistic background. It's peaceful and portrayed with gentle, restful colors. The two figures stand out against the background with a bit more detail and contrasting colors. A lovely, quiet, peaceful scene.

But the expression and posture of the bored little girl is freaking hilarious. The nurse is content to read whatever drivel she regards as 'proper' for a little girl. The girl wants to play, look for stuff in the stream, maybe get dirty as she explores the woods and water.

Make me wonder if this is something Mary Cassatt went through growing up.

Thanks, CBD. Nothing like ending the week's art thread with a smile.

144 For a while in the 70s, Phil Collins was pretty damn cool.

Not only drumming for and then fronting a leading stadium-rock band but simultaneously playing in a really cool jazz fusion group, Brand X, while side-gigging with the likes of Brian Eno - and if Eno had you in his Rolodex in the 70s you were automatically cool...well, it was all downhill after 1980 but he had a good run of coolness.

Posted by: Ghost of Lee Atwater at August 07, 2020 09:40 AM (SUelH)

I think that there will be many calls to alter paintings, and if not destroy them. If you can tear down statues of real people, why not burn paintings of anonymous ones.

Whenever you see a television show or a play, where the identities of the characters are changed (especially real people like Hamilton) in opposition to the reality of the time, you are seeing a destruction of history.

McCarter in Princeton loves to do this. They made Marcus Antonius black, and love to recast main characters as Asian or black.

So I am a bit surprised they're not vandalizing paintings. It would be so permanent.

When furloughed, you still have a job, you just aren't working and not getting paid. Yet you still file for unemployment. And you are factored into the published unemployment numbers.I'm curious how many of the unemployed fall into the furloughed category. Is it a significant amount? Factoring them out, would the unemployment rate be more like 5%

And you are factored into the published unemployment numbers.I'm curious how many of the unemployed fall into the furloughed category. Is it a significant amount? Factoring them out, would the unemployment rate be more like 5%

And what about all the employees who are getting paid, but are not working? Looking at you, teachers. There is a piss-pot full of wages being paid to non-producers. Effectively, teachers are nearly all on welfare, right now.

Back in the early 80's, Ozzy was playing the San Antonio Convention Center the same night we went to see a production of Mozart's Don Giovani next door. The two venues shared the same parking. It was....interesting.

Plus, a bat got loose in the opera house during the production. Many "that's the one that got away" jokes were made.

Actually that's how I found out. Ozzy had a show with his son Jack where they traveled across America . One episode had them going back to San Antonio to find out what really happened . According to the police report , Ozzy apparently relieved himself on the sidewalk across from the Alamo and not on the Alamo. San Antonio officially lifted his ban. Anyway they had solicited Phil Colins help in finding out who they could talk to in San Antonio for their visit.

It's already happening. It's just not visible to most people yet.


Go to APMEX and look at the price of buying a silver dollar. American Silver Eagles are going for $39.82 each in bulk. The spot price for silver is $22.75.

I have been buying silver from them for well over a decade and that is literally insane. In the past their prices were never more than 2 or 3 dollars over silver spot. Not is is $18.00 over spot.


They and other dealers are nearing double the spot price for silver and people are paying it.

I quit buying silver when this all started. I used to buy 20 American Eagles every other month or so from them. But now what I paid around $400 for last winter is running over $800 now.

267 I remember a lot of people jumping on SJWest a month or two ago when he was advising maxing out every credit card you had and buying real property with it. If you're headed into a true hyperinflationary period, that's about the best strategy there is.

if no one has to pay back debts, you don't have to either.
Posted by: Tom Servo at August 07, 2020 10:23 AM (Kpl3J)

YUUUGE difference between intergovernmental debt and private debt. Governments can get away with not paying the bills - you, however, can't. The only thing that will allow you to keep that property for a bit longer would be the giant backlog of foreclosure suits by the lending institutions against all the people who did what jwest recommended.

I think Brennan and Comey are in trouble, not so sure about Clapper although this reputation will take a hit no matter what. I think the plan all along was to hang this on Comey but I bet he took some steps to make sure he didn't hang alone.

273 All nations are inflating their fiat currencies ... but MMT is the next (logical?) step. And indeed, why would a nation pay interest on debt, instead of just printing?


One problem is indeed, politicians will buy more elections than ever, via playing Santa Claus. But depending on how the money is thrown around, it is conceivable they could control inflation.


Another problem is like with that $600/week to be unemployed ... why work?


There are a host of potential global issues with unlimited government printing, but it is true that a government can print, so it is not like a household budget that has to balance. But the "magic money wand" must be used with discretion ... and considering the criminals running DC, what are the odds it is instead used to empower 'a New World Order' run by them?


idk ... but Western nations must retain military control, and our current debt is perhaps as big a threat as China, unless we print our way out (which we have been doing, but paying interest on the unlimited debt can't continue, so MMT to the rescue?)

274 Go to APMEX and look at the price of buying a silver dollar. American Silver Eagles are going for $39.82 each in bulk. The spot price for silver is $22.75.

I have been buying silver from them for well over a decade and that is literally insane. In the past their prices were never more than 2 or 3 dollars over silver spot. Not is is $18.00 over spot.


They and other dealers are nearing double the spot price for silver and people are paying it.

I quit buying silver when this all started. I used to buy 20 American Eagles every other month or so from them. But now what I paid around $400 for last winter is running over $800 now.

The stuff you learn here.


More trivia: You know who has a huge collection of photos from 9/11, including the famous one of the person jumping to their death? Elton John.

Among his collection are 2000 photos from 9/11, "the most horrible subject matter, but the most moving photography. We get them out every year. Beautiful photographs, but they're too raw to show."

At the end of the audio guide, John takes a moment to reflect.

"We live in turbulent times, probably the most turbulent of my life," he says. "With photos, you get a sense of what's happening and outrage."

The 600 dollars a week is a drop in the bucket compared to the 10s of trillions given away to bailout multinational companies, billionaires, and banks plus propping up the detached from reality stock market.

It all depends on what stage the hyperinflation is in, you're right that it's still too early to play that game. You've got to wait until some of the signs of an actual hyperinflation start to kick in, like a stock market that begins to soar in a way that has no relation to the real economy, simply because it's a very liquid place for the largest players to store their excess cash.

Stocks are relatively resilient to inflation, even hyperinflation. In the first year of Venezuela's ongoing collapse, their stock market only lost 20% in real terms when using the black market exchange rate(meaning it went up massively in nominal terms but not quite as much as the currency depreciated in value).

You can also invest in real estate through an ETF, which avoids much of the hassle while throwing off cash. A dividend oriented fund I think is largely a good position to be in right now, many companies are still depressed in price while the run-up in the indexes has been driven mostly by tech. Compare VYM to the S&P 500, and you can see that the increasingly tech-heavy S&P 500 has already recovered to its pre-Covid high whereas the dividend fund has not. You'd miss out on potentially a couple years of tech bubble but it's a solid place to be.

Unless the hyperinflation begins shortly, anyone buying in now is more likely to see a substantial decline in price after the substantial surge, just like what happened with the prior recession. Gold is a non-productive asset and not a very good inflation hedge, it reacts more to economic shocks.

This is why my husband now takes a more positive view of buying gold jewelry at an estate liquidator for below scrap value. Some dealers, the one I know, is sentimental about artisans and would prefer to sell a piece intact for less as long as he makes some profit.

338 I sometimes think that artistically, us being able to live through the 70's, 80's, and 90's was a treat equal to the Golden Age of Elizabeth 1. They got to see the first runs of Shakespeare, countless other plays and writings, an explosion of music and wealth and confidence. Not long after came decades of puritanism and repression and civil war, and then a couple centuries of extremely boring conformity enforced from on high, where "art" was restricted to Paintings of Horses and overweight country squires.

1968 and 1972 were two of my favorite stand-alone music years and then I pretty much loved the entire period of 1974-1982, since the music of every genre (rock, pop, disco, etc) was great.

Gold has some use for fleeing to other countries. A lot less if you stick around.

Remember people that if gold's price increases, margins for mining gold improve and so more will be produced. Unless there is a commensurate increase in the cost of producing gold(which as of yet we haven't seen a similar rise in the cost of labor etc.)

346 just for discussion. I think the action in Smith and Wesson is pretty interesting. It shows why the markets have buyers and sellers. The argument for Smith and Wesson is pretty obvious, people are scared they are going to lose their rights and others are scared they are going to lose a lot more than that.

But we have an election in three months. If Biden wins, what happens to gun stocks? An argument can be made they will be in real trouble. If Trump wins, then what happens? History shows that demand will drop because the 2a will be safe. Yet the stock keeps rising.

My point is this stuff can be risky to say the least. A stock goes up over fear, but what happens when the feared outcome happens?

i have no clue to be honest. My guess is things won't change that much structurally simply because that has been the case in the past. People have been saying Pillip Morris is doomed and certainly going to get sued out of existence for at least 40 years.

I only mention it because the Smith and Wesson stock run up is so interesting and has so many competing factors. The one that stands out to me is the election in three months.

393 Brisket used to be $1.99 a pound. I can't touch it for less than $4.99 a pound around here. More than a 100% increase in less than a year.

Sure there are many examples like that. But what % of your spending is brisket? That is a component tht few people consider. I can buy a laptop today for $500 with more power than a $1000 laptop form 3 years ago. Or a 60 inch 4K tv for less than 1/2 what it cost 5 years ago. That is a lot of negative inflation that more than makes up for the brisket.

399 When the US Civil War started. You had two sides that had the same ethnic backgrounds. They had the same religious beliefs. They had the same belief that the USA was ordained by God to be the exceptional country. They had the same pride in the Founders, they had the same stories and fables. Yet they tore each other apart in a scale that is unprecedented in this nation.

One thing that might save us in a weird way is the disunity. The one thing those that fought for the USA held close was the belief this nation should never be torn apart. Today, people on both sides have little idea what Union means. If the right states on either side left now, many if not most would say see ya.

429 The official inflation numbers exclude "volatiles" like food, fuel (autocucumber tried to turn that into "girl"), and housing.

That's where most of the inflation has been. In the city I live in, the cost of housing has nearly doubled over the last 7 years. Gasoline is cheap (for now), but the others never drop in price.

This is a simple example but that is a true inflation measure. But because brisket goes up in price and laptops fall in price people think inflation is going up because it is in your face every week.

471 No you cant eat a tv. But that is irrelevant. Inflation is based on a
basket of goods and services. Some items in that basket go up in price
some go down.


Horseshit. The "basket of goods" used by the government is designed to hide inflation as much as possible. Electronics go down in price because of Moore's Law, but that is fast reaching it's physical limits. When electronics go up, as they will in the next few years, the real amount of inflation will start to become apparent. By the way without inflation the price of electronics goods would have declined much more steeply than it has.

Reminds of a particular commenter that would always attempt to make this rather crap argument about how electronics prove that inflation is great while of course you can't include groceries. Always bullshit and always argued by a prick.

473 347 I'll take the US being the US again.

I don't see how the US can ever be "The US" again. I just want our side to be in control of whatever comes out of this.

We need a Christian Revival. A large scale Reformation in Christianity in America that focuses on Christ rather than politics and Marxism.

It's beginning but it's seen as a realignment.
Jews are moving back to Orthodox, Christians are moving to Evangelical away from the now Social Justice, heretofore traditional denominations.

Actually Trump has been the strongest defender of religious freedom in my lifetime. Where was Joe Bidet's full throated support of the Little Sisters of the Poor the entire time they were battling Obama's oppressive anti-religious freedom policy?

Trump has been strong in articulating his support for their cause, and they eventually prevailed, with no comment of congratulations from V.P. Fingerbang.
