Progress is oftentimes linked to an attitude shift. It’s about competing to be innovative and not always right. It’s about looking at age-old processes, activities, and tasks and then ask ourselves: Why do I do it this way? https://t.co/GES74gK4kA

If you go go a beautiful place— an island, a desert, a mountain— you will see poetry all around you, and you have only to transcribe it

All science, art, and religion begins with a man alone in nature. The earth is holy writ

war evolution 🇺🇦
Where once the main sources of wealth were material assets such as gold mines, wheat fields and oil wells, today the main source of wealth is knowledge. And whereas you can seize oil fields by force, you cannot acquire knowledge that way. The profitability of conquest has declined as a result.

REFINERY TO THE WORLD: US exports of refined petroleum products surged last week to an all-time high of 6.96 million barrels per day, per @EIAgov data | #OOTT https://t.co/DiujckRrGW
🇺🇦 You can donate to support the people in Ukraine.
All funds will be used to help those in need, affected by armed conflict, blood collection, mobilization of volunteers and resources, and emergency activities.
Disclaimer: There is no such thing as unbiased news. You can call it “less biased news”. There are numerous other biases that can influence news reporting too.
Overt political bias is probably the least concerning aspect of a democracy because it is simple to identify and weigh. 
The more concerning biases in news reporting today are those that are more subtle, such as financial incentives and self-censorship of topics. Many topics are simply not covered, and the mainstream media does not question why. 
Feel free to send me counter-propaganda too.
