The Occupation of Donald Trump

Among decent, intelligent, and respectable human beings in the United States and around the world, the occupation of Donald Trump of the American presidency is the shock that never ends. Much of this has to do with how vulgar the man is. The New York Times has religiously kept a list of the 329 (and counting) ‘people, places, and things’ that Trump has insulted since his time as a presidential candidate.[1]   This list includes a diverse range of news media, nation-states, international organizations, and governmental agencies, as well as women, peoples-of-color, indigenous people, and LGBTIQ+ persons. (EVEN ME!)

This translates for most into misogyny, racism, homophobia, and transphobia. read

Millennial Burnout

In a recent BuzzFeed story, Anne Helen Petersen wrote about the condition of millennial burnout, the kind of anxious overextension that can make today’s young adults feel that even minor household chores are insurmountable. The promise of the Kondo method is that getting rid of physical clutter might clear mental and spiritual clutter as well.

BOOM suggests you clear up your mind too...

For the last decade, “millennials” has been used to describe or ascribe what’s right and wrong with young people, but in 2019, millennials are well into adulthood: The youngest are 22; the oldest, like me, somewhere around 38.

Veteran New York dealer Aarne Anton’s American Primitive Gallery will show mixed-media objects by Zebedee B. Armstrong (1911-1993), an artist who lived in Georgia and became known for making various forms of doomsday calendars.
He made the calendars to predict the date of the end of the world.

The Outsider Art Fair takes place at Metropolitan Pavilion (125 West 18th Street, Manhattan) from January 17-20.

RICHEST TWEET

There is, however, something sort of sad and attention-desperate about investing $923,000 in what amounts to a bid for more social media followers. For that kind of money, one would think you could buy an entire army of Russian tweetbots, or an actual life, or, I dunno, feed all the starving children in Yemen, or maybe invest in a LOT of therapy and get to the bottom of those self-worth issues. - Sarah Rose Sharp (Hyperallergic) on Yusaku Maezawa posted a tweet offering 100 random people 1 million yen (~$9,200) and it garnered almost 5.5 million retweets.

America, how do you like your dictator?

“Our country is in crisis,” wrote Howard. “We are witnessing before our very eyes a resurgence of unabashed racism—the type of racism that does not bother to disguise itself, that is unapologetic, and that seeks to inflict maximum harm. We are at a decisive point in our nation’s history. Those at the helm of our educational institutions will play a key role in determining whether our country marches forward, or slides back into the dark recesses of its racist past.” GOOD READ

Parasite?

DATA from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has found that a parasite found in 11% of the American population has been linked to alzheimer’s, epilepsy, and cancer.
One third of the world’s population is infected with the parasite Toxoplasma gondii. Researchers say that the toxic parasite affects 11% of the U.S. population aged 6 years and over.
