“I would rather have questions that can’t be answered than answers that can’t be questioned” – Rich Feynman

I understand the wealth gap variance between the US and most other countries, but if spending is soo much lower around the world, why does the US constantly spend absolutely obscene amounts of money on it? The country as a whole appears to be devolving into a medieval like society. The rich are few and have no worries whatsoever, while their employees worry about what they’ll eat for dinner, where they’ll sleep next month, as well as if it’s the day they’ll be killed by a completely random stranger.
Regardless how the figures are presented, the US citizens need attention. Yet the governments focus couldn’t be further from offering aid at home. Seemingly they value ensuring elsewhere is worse off more than anything else. Its demented from where I’m standing. Hopefully I’m wrong and the government will come to the aid of the people, but I won’t hold my breath while we wait to see.
Interesting, I work at a public university as well and I’m currently doing research surrounding how to decrease the D.W.F. rates in early molecular biology courses. The increase over the last decade in hours worked per student is upsetting. On average, students at my University are working 30 hours each week. This is to stay afloat but prevents them from taking a full course load. Without a full course load, no aid is available. Additionally, the amount of applications for aid, or even for Yale and Harvard, vs the amount of funding which can be provided prevents many in need from attaining help. Someone from a rich family who went to a college prep school compared to a student currently working through the public school system puts the latter at a large disadvantage. Sure, they could pay nothing to attend Yale, but first they must be accepted. Acceptance 100% favors the wealthier applicant who’s family put them in markedly better accademic settings, right?
TLDR: An asteroid doesn’t seem to be the cause of the dinosaurs going extinct. The asteroid defintely occurred, yet it seems like the Jurassic extinction was years afterwards while the nuclear winter seems to only have taken place briefly. By focusing on mean temperature and bacterial cell morphology post the asteroid, our current understanding would impact everything from dino’s to microbes yet microbes we’re thriving years after the impact. Current idea’s are revolving around a volcano in India being the cause of extinction, but more research is needed to confirm.
A tenth, or $110 Billion, would do the trick for sure
