Americans were said to be particularly prone to neurasthenia, which resulted in the nickname "Americanitis" (popularized by William James)...

Barbara Ehrenreich, restating James's view, considers that neurasthenia was caused by the Calvinist gloom, and it was helped by the New Thought, through replacing the "puritanical 'demand for perpetual effort and self-examination to the point of self-loathing'" with a more hopeful faith.

“Make the customers feel good about themselves and they will like you."

"When people feel good about themselves and do not attribute the good feeling to a specific cause, they tend to associate the source of that good feeling with the person who is physically close to them at the time."

During the course of its history, Mexico has experienced dramatic shifts in population. Demographers estimate that the country's population at the time of the Spanish conquest in the early 1500s was approximately 20 million. By 1600, however, barely 1 million remained--the result of deadly European diseases and brutal treatment of the indigenous inhabitants by the Spanish colonizers.

At the onset of the Mexican Revolution in 1910, Mexico's population stood at approximately 15 million persons. Not until 1940 did Mexico reach the population level it had in 1519.

One way the "1 percent" in America legally avoids taxes:


Let’s say a business that’s 100% owned by a single individual generates $10 million in revenue in a typical year. They also generate a cash profit of $1 million.

But because the business holds assets worth $15 million, they’re also able to claim $1 million in depreciation expense on those assets.

The $1 million in depreciation reduces the $1 million cash profit to zero. If the owner of the business holds it as a sole proprietorship or LLC, he or she will collect $1 million in cash profit on the business. But because the depreciation expense eliminates the profit for tax purposes, the owner pays no tax on the income.

There have been criticisms over the practice of trying contempt from the bench. In particular, Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black wrote in a dissent, "It is high time, in my judgment, to wipe out root and branch the judge-invented and judge-maintained notion that judges can try criminal contempt cases without a jury."

What gets lost in many versions of Cortés' conquest is that Spaniards made up only 1% of the conquering army, according to historians. Most were Indigenous rivals of the Aztecs.

Just read that Prescott, Arizona was named after a famous historian:


William Hickling Prescott (May 4, 1796 – January 28, 1859) was an American historian and Hispanist, who is widely recognized by historiographers to have been the first American scientific historian. Despite having serious visual impairment, which at times prevented him from reading or writing for himself, Prescott became one of the most eminent historians of 19th century America. He is also noted for his eidetic memory...

The Conquest of Mexico has endured more than any other of Prescott's work: it is regarded as his greatest literary accomplishment...

The City of Prescott in Arizona was named in his honor, as was the William H. Prescott House (Headquarters House), which was designated a National Historic Landmark for its association with him. Colegio Anglo Americano Prescott, a school in Arequipa, Peru, also bears his name. Prescott Street, two blocks from Harvard Yard in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is named after him.

The town/city of Prescott was a former capital of Arizona (when it was a territory) and is where I do all my shopping.

Sonoran Dog (Mexico)

1663732570681.jpg

While this beloved style is available throughout Arizona as well, the Sonoran dog originated across the border in Hermosillo, the capital of the Mexican state of Sonora. The Sonoran dog includes a bacon-wrapped hot dog grilled, served on a bolillo-style roll and topped with pinto beans, onions, tomatoes, and often times mayonnaise, mustard, and jalapeño salsa.

All-dressed (Montreal Style): This hot dog, usually a 'steamie', is topped with mustard, chopped onion, relish and fresh coleslaw or plain chopped cabbage ("choux" in French); however, sauerkraut, or coleslaw of the creamy variety, is rarely used. An all-dressed hot dog typically does not include ketchup, which must be requested specifically.

He made appearances in infomercials for the Showtime Rotisserie and coined the phrase "Set it, and forget it!" as well as popularizing the phrase, "But wait, there's more!" on television as early as the mid-1950s...

Malcolm Gladwell's New Yorker piece "The Pitchman" about Popeil won Gladwell the 2001 National Magazine award. The article was first published in The New Yorker in 2000.

For at least one fifth of the world population, an arrest is essentially a verdict:


In China, the justice system has a conviction rate of 99.9% in 2014. Out of 1.2 million tried, only 1,039 were found not guilty -- an acquittal rate of around 0.08 per cent.

In 2018, the gross conviction rate in Russia was above 99%. In 2018, 0.25% of court cases ended in acquittal, compared with 0.3% in 2017 and 0.54% in 2014.

"Flight / Risk follows everyday people who find themselves in the midst of a global tragedy when two Boeing 737 Max planes crashed only five months apart in 2018 and 2019. This powerful documentary is told through the perspective of affected family members, their legal teams, whistleblowers, and Pulitzer-winning Seattle Times journalist, Dominic Gates."

• Never use a generator indoors or within 20 feet of your house.
• Have working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms on every floor.
• If you use your car to stay warm or charge devices, make sure it’s outside the garage.
• Never use a device (such as an oven) to produce heat unless that’s its intended purpose.
• Indoor portable heaters should have an automatic shutoff switch in case they tip over.

...Even without heat, on a sunny day in particular you can maximize your warmth inside by gathering in a room with southern-facing windows.

Use a compass app on your phone or a real compass if you have one to find a room that fits that bill. Then keep your family in this shared space as much as possible. The collective heat generated by your bodies will also keep the space warmer...
