Who is pulling the strings in China??

Introduction LO: A recent Nikkei Asia article alleged that president Xi has been reprimanded by his elders at Beidaihe over the direction of the Chinese nation; also see my recent blog.

The silo mentality in scientific articles

Last week, I noticed a Big Think article: Why are flood myths so common in stories from ancient cultures around the world? I've written about this in several blogs (eg, my 2016 blog).

Feeling ignored

Recently, I dreamt about being ignored. The evening before, something happened that may well have triggered that dream. Feeling ignored may, however, be misguided as not everyone pays immediate attention. Ghosting is a modern name of deliberately ignoring virtual contact (eg, my 2019 blog). Ignoring someone may look like a powerful tool to express your discontent...
