“Central Bankers Are Criminals” Marc Faber Warns “Once COVID Is Over, The Elites Will Go To War”
“What I think will happen, and most people have not really considered, we will get wage inflation. For the first time since the late 1970’s, we will get accelerating wage inflation, and in some cases, quite dramatic. In some states, the minimum wage is $15. I could see that going up to $30 per hour very quickly. I don’t think inflation is ‘transitory’ (as the Fed proclaims). We will not have stagflation. We will have something worse. We will have rising prices and a depression in the standard of living of most people.” So, with inflation going up and the standard of living going down in the West, is the possibility of war going up? Faber says, “Correct. I think once this Covid19 thing is over, the elite, the ones who make the money, will go to war. That is the last recipe to keep the population together.”

Land of Milk & Honey: Israel gets innovative on honey-production, protecting bees from extinction
For these reasons, the Jewish National Fund (JNF) supports an effort by Porat farm in Ein Yahav in the Negev.

Hothouses inhibit infestations of bugs but also prevent insect-facilitated pollination. Local farmers have come to rely on cultured bees, paying beekeepers to place the hives inside the greenhouses and in their fields.

We are in the middle of a scientific and technological revolution in which computers use artificial intelligence to learn from example and to execute sophisticated functions that, until recently, were thought impossible. In recent decades, however, the field of neuroscience has discovered that individual neurons are, built from complex branching system that contains many functional sub-regions. In fact, the branching structure of neurons and the many synapses that contact it over its distributed surface area implies that single neurons might behave as an extensive network whereby each sub-region its own local, that is, nonlinear input-output function.
