Loudly tells another man to be quiet

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is one of a kind player. He is good at what he does, and he says that people like him, celebrities like LeBron James, should concentrate on what they are good at, and stay out of politics. That they should keep their opinion to themselves and not make it public.

“I like him [James] a lot. He’s phenomenal at what he’s doing. But, I don’t like when people with some kind of status, they go and do politics at the same time. I play football because I’m the best in playing…

On October 28th, 2020 Microsoft Corporation launched its first industry-specific cloud, Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare, which seeks to integrate the growing bundle of Microsoft’s software application and infrastructure layers into a single product. An extremely difficult task but, if executed well, it will help cement Microsoft’s position at the top of the growing Cloud industry.

“This end-to-end, industry-specific cloud solution includes released and new healthcare capabilities that unlock the power of Microsoft 365, Azure, Dynamics 365, and Power Platform,” wrote Tom McGuinness, Corporate Vice President, Worldwide Health, Microsoft.

It’s a heavy lift…

Senator David Perdue is quietly becoming the man to watch in the stock trading circles, if there was a way to follow him closely, I think a lot of people would be happy. As the stock market plunged into chaos early this year, Senator David Perdue saw an opportunity to trade stocks.

“And for the second time in less than two months, Perdue’s timing was impeccable. He avoided sharp loss and reaped stunning gain by selling and then buying the same stock: Cardlytics, an Atlanta based financial technology company on whose board of directors he once served,” reported APNews.


The 2020 Presidential Election Came this close to being stolen, it survived, thankfully because of three factors

  1. The legal system proved its resilience
  2. People rose to the occasion, thwarting the efforts to overturn the results.
  3. Trump’s margin of loss made it extremely hard for his plan to work.

Does anyone think that the Trump Coup would not have worked, if he lost the electoral college by less than 50 votes? For example, what if the difference between 270 and trump was just Michigan and Florida, and he lost both the states by a margin of fewer than 20,000 votes.


The Math is not Complicated

Joe Biden has better odds of winning Montana and Kansas than Donald Trump has of Winning Michigan and Wisconsin, the two states he carried in 2016.

The President’s polling numbers in Montana and Kansas is heartbreaking for any Republican political consultant. With less than a week left for the election, Donald Trump’s favorability with women has collapsed in deep-red states.

Democrats need three senate seats, with a Biden win and four senate seats, with a Trump win to get the Senate majority. The Republicans may have made their job a lot easier with the Supreme Court nomination.

The Republicans started this race on a bad deck. They were asked to defend 23 seats, while the Democrats had only 12 to defend. Under normal circumstances, the Republicans wouldn’t have been extremely worried because most of the seats they were defending were in deeply red states.

But this is not a normal election, because there will be Trump’s name on every single…

The time has to come to stand up and make a difference

The United States of America is the longest and one of the largest democracies in the world. We did not stumble into democracy by accident. We earned it because hundreds of thousands of people believed in it, fought for it, and gave their lives for it.

Democracy: The power of the people

In a democracy, people decide who will be a lawmaker. They determine who will govern as their representative. Through their vote, they determine who represents them in the local office to the highest office in the country.

Democracy can only work when…

The Republicans have walked straight into the trap as they rush towards the Supreme Court nomination. But the even bigger question is - will Democrats return the favor?

The Supreme Court seat has long been a favorite issue for the Republicans. It helps them fire up the conservative side within their base. But Ruth Bader Ginsburg is not just another Justice. She is a beacon for the left and an icon for the center.

Even some in the ideologically opposite spectrum respect her. Antonin Scalia is a great example.

But the road Republicans have taken to the Supreme Court…

In an Alternate Reality

According to the Republican National Convention, Donald Trump is the last man standing between the great American story and America in a free fall. Donald Trump is everything he is, while also managing to be everything he is not. In a world that’s warming up to virtual reality, the Republican National Convention presented an alternate reality to Americans.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge, the 18th-century Philosopher, who coined the term ‘Suspension of disbelief,’ “suggested that if a writer could infuse human interest and a semblance of truth into a fantastic tale, the reader would suspend judgment concerning the implausibility of the narrative.”

It is what it is

There is no other issue that weighs as heavily in the mind of US voters as the economy. Voters across the length and the breadth of the nation identified the economy as the top issue in 2020, 2016, 2012, 2008, 2004, and possibly forever.

The President’s understanding of the electorate’s precondition is explicitly evident in his twitter feed. Irrespective of the direction he chooses to drive his twitter account on a given day, he will find a way to come back and pat himself on the economy.

According to the President, the US economy is…
