Floods, storms, loss of life and communities but no funding to fix it this

We gotta save the planet.  Escape to Mars to Nuke it, makes sense.  Not." Globally, the question of equity is even more acute, with cities in developed nations far better able to fund climate change adaptation projects than in developing countries. “In an environment of scarce resources for local authorities, especially in poor countries, mobilizing such resources will be a real political and institutional challenge,” according to a World Bank study."" There is no coordinated strategy nationally, there is not enough money, states are not moving, and this loose talk of resilience bonds in the private sector is not a reality yet,” Stiles says."The Cost of Rising Seas: More Than $400 Billion

Finland flexible work

My company,  Pagarba,  believes in the philosophy of remote work, respect and as much flexibility as possible. Just get work done when you need to. If you need to drop kids off at school, take college classes, go surfing , go the gym, whatever it's all about flexibility and creating an environment where you get your work and life in order.   I guess you could call it  the work life balance to the extreme philosophy. " Employees will be able to decide when and where they work for at least half of their hours. As well as fitting their job around childcare commitments or exercise sessions, most full-time workers will be able to “bank” time off and use it to take extended holidays.Daily treks into the city could become unnecessary as the new rules facilitate a choice of working remotely."Finland is about to take flexible working a step further

Bring on qutrits... because Quantum physicists successfully teleported qutrits

What’s a qutrit?It’s like a qubit. A qunit is an entangled pair of particles used to carry info in a quantum computing system. Qubits are sort of similar to bits, the binary units of information used by computers we use today.  Bits can be represented by the numbers 0 and 1, qubits can be 0, 1, or both at the same time.
Trits, used in classical tenary systems , add a 2 into the mix. And qutrits are the quantum version of trits, capable of carrying even more  information than their qubit counterparts. Cool stuff quantum computing..
