Directorate 153: Quest to Take-Back the Future

Another one of those [possibly meaningful] lucid dreams of mine.  This time it’s about who “owns the future.”  What’s interesting is that ownership of that may be up for grabs. 

In the charts, we’re wondering when Wave II up (from the Feb. 19 high to the A-Fool’s low was 1-down and since we’ve been in 2-up) will be done.  We look at the problem through that spreadsheet downloadable on the Master Index page.

And we consider not only the “usual” virus impacts, but also some economic data..

So bean up and let’s do this…

A non-subscriber note:

People often ask “Is Peoplenomics kind of like a bulked up UrbanSurvival column?  Um, no…

Let me give you a “coded answer.”

Breitbart today is running a big headline “Producers Warn America Is Facing Protein Shortage in Coronavirus Era.”

This is a topic Peoplenomics readers take as “old news” – just taking a bit longer than expected to arrive.  The larger context, beyond the virus is laid out in our 06/25/2006 report: The Coming Protein Cost Explosion.  Follow the money, know the future.

You can work out the “value-proposition” for yourself. Although, do also notice how

all collides with paleo diets…

Food for thought, we trust…

Short for “Time To Re-Think Texas?” Don’t get me wrong, we love this place beyond belief.  It has almost everything we could want.

More than a million square feet of land.  Since there are 43,560 square fee, and there are 28.82 of them (more/or less) then 1.256 million square feet, or a square 1,120 feet (3-1/2 football fields) on a side.

There’s plenty of water, easy tree-growing, low taxes thanks to tree farm ag exemptions.  And some of the most capable and good-natured people in the world who believe in something bigger than a social media persona and the Constitution is honored.

Yet, there is one slim chance scenario that has been waking me up nights lately and it involves the country from whence came Wuhan.

The details of Ure’s latest bit of “pretzel logic ” after we do the body  count.  Both for markets and virus with charts on each.  For we are non-partisan in our battle space assessments.

At least until we see the “whites of their eyes.”

Podcast #18 will be here – hopefully before noon.  But I have this old AMD machine that has gotten cranky and I have to figure out why the audio is cutting out…

New America? Check the Rearview

Wherein we “look ahead in the rearview” with a unique historical guidepost system most people don’t think about. Not saying that we are going back to the “past-Ure” but if you’re wondering what will need doing in the “Post-Tech world” business ideas abound.

Which will be grist for the brain after an assortment of headlines and our stunningly interesting ChartPack.

Stunningly?  Did the man say “Stunningly?”  Well, sure – but it’s no more over-hype than much of what the media is saying all-around.  Ad revenue is dying because the old America is passing from view.

Where we’re going?  I’m thinking 1948…

No Podcast Today.  Yes, Pod 18 is missing in actionSeems the studio PC has not been on the internet in a month or two and because of that (not being able to talk to some mother ship somewhere) the machine decided not to boot up today.

The case for Linux builds as survivable computing…

After pissing-away 2-hours (until 6:25 AM) getting Win-10 to work again, I stumbled upon one of those Big Cosmic Truths of Prepping:  Ask yourself (or Microsoft) is their OS will keep working for an indefinite period of time?

Adding insult to injury, when I got the PC working (barely) I discovered that I had to change my Microsoft account on that PC…  We may be only one driver update from calamity.

Which means when I got over to the office, I had to change that account to the new password.  And,  to top it off, I can’t use my old unhackable password (*15 characters of everything, upper, low, special chrs, numbers, and so on) because I had used it before.

Well, about here I was running out of time and brain cells so what we have is a delay of podcast 18 until next weekend…
