Cuba stamps out mother to child HIV,
Big Pharma will quickly put an end to this when the thawing relations between US and Cuba allow some old-school crony-capitalism to kick in.

The Beauty of Algebra,
Not a very good video. When someone starts saying (about y=p*x) "And even neater, it's kind of telling us the true structure of the universe", **I** know they don't mean it literally. But only because I know mathematics already.
But what about the poor sod that does not have a clue about equations or functions or algebra who is in the target audience for this video? The video is not going to educate them in any meaningful way. It is just confusing to invoke lofty statements about how y=p*x somehow unlocks the secrets of the universe.
Sorry, this video is no good.

Putin now embraces Stalin's tactics,
That LA Times article is pure propaganda rubbish. The journalist made a huge leap from "Putin supposedly has not sufficiently denounced the pre-WW2 non-aggression pact between Molotov and Ribbentrop" to "Putin is just like Stalin".
Do you see what she did there? I thought so. If held to the same high standards as Carol J. Williams propose for Putin, there would be a few Western presidents and prime ministers that might be equated with Stalin for not sufficiently denouncing their own pre-WW2 predecessors.
