Foxconn, UW-Madison Leaders to Make Announcement



Leaders of Foxconn Technology Group and the University of Wisconsin-Madison are planning to make what they call a "major announcement" on campus Monday. U.S. News and World Report  Aug. 27, 2018, at 9:21 a.m.


Wonder what it is?


  • Wisconsin taxpayers cough up between $3 billion and $4 billion ?
  • Wisconsin localities use eminent domain to take people's property and make way for FOXCONN ?
  • Maybe FOXCONN gets all the water it wants from Lake Michigan ?
  • FOXCONN gets exempted from all state environmental rules and regulations ?
  • Wisconsin Transportation Funds are diverted from statewide infrastructure to support FOXCONN needs ?
  • Wisconsin gets 13,000 jobs -- maybe in five years ? What kind of jobs ?
  • Walker gets political cover for keeping Wisconsin at the end of the line when it comes to recovery -- compare to Minnesota or Illinois ?
Nope -- those deals or promises have already been done!  Be interesting to see what really happens!

Oh! UW gets $100 million, maybe ?

Who is Senator Tammy Baldwin running against ... big bucks!


Big question for Wisconsin U.S. Senate race focuses on mega-donor Dick Uihlein

A week after accusing a billionaire donor of attempting to buy a Wisconsin U.S. Senate seat, Republican nominee Leah Vukmir is now hoping to persuade the same Illinois businessman to open his wallet for her campaign against Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin.
Vukmir’s change of heart comes after she won Tuesday’s divisive and expensive Republican primary over Kevin Nicholson, the preferred candidate of mega-donor Dick Uihlein. He spent nearly $11 million on the race for Nicholson and now, as Republicans try to unite behind Vukmir, the big question is whether Uihlein will get involved in the effort to defeat Baldwin, of Madison.

The #Trump organization offered to house the #migrant separated children in their HOTEL properties

Trump admin's 'tent cities' cost more than keeping migrant kids with parents - NBC


WASHINGTON — The cost of holding migrant children who have been separated from their parents in newly created "tent cities" is $775 per person per night, according to an official at the Department of Health and Human Services — far higher than the cost of keeping children with their parents in detention centers or holding them in more permanent buildings.

"We could save the government a lot of money," Trump offered, "Oh Yeah, I am the government.  Well I could use the money too!"

MIDSUMMER NIGHTS' SCIENCE: WHO WE ARE AND HOW WE GOT HERE: ANCIENT DNA AND THE NEW SCIENCE OF THE HUMAN PAST: Broad Institute

In 2010, the first genome-wide data from ancient humans was published. Since that time, the number of ancient genomes available has increased by three orders of magnitude, and the amount of data continues to rise at an extraordinary rate. These new data make it possible, for the first time, to understand how ancient human populations are related to each other. Studies have demonstrated surprise after surprise, including the existence of a previously unknown human population called the Denisovans and interbreeding between Neanderthals and modern humans.
In this 2017 Midsummer Nights' Science talk, David Reich described his laboratory’s work in the area of ancient DNA and the prospects for further discoveries about the past from this burgeoning field.

Why we make BAD decisions !


Those of you who don't take the time to listen to this will definitely continue to make bad decisions ... most likely so will the rest of us (maybe a small chance we can live more in the future and less in the now). Listen, read, reflect. Good Luck !





It turns out that, in fact, the world was given this gift in 1738 by a Dutch polymath named Daniel Bernoulli. And what I want to talk to you about today is what that gift is, and I also want to explain to you why it is that it hasn't made a damn bit of difference.

Bad Decisions

Ah, for you in persuading them. Well, it's notoriously difficult to get people to be farsighted.  But one thing that psychologists have tried that seems to work is to get people to imagine the future more vividly. One of the problems with making decisions about the far future and the near future is that we imagine the near future much more vividly than the far future. To the extent that you can equalize the amount of detail that people put into the mental representations of near and far future, people begin to make decisions about the two in the same way. So, would you like to have an extra 100,000 dollars when you're 65 is a question that's very different than, imagine who you'll be when you're 65: will you be living, what will you look like, how much hair will you have, who will you be living with. Once we have all the details of that imaginary scenario, suddenly we feel like it might be important to save so that that guy has a little retirement money. But these are tricks around the margins. I think in general you're battling a very fundamental human tendency, which is to say, "I'm here today, and so now is more important than later."
