efficient is impressive. Airbus bet on the wrong future scenario, while Boeing was derided for failing the match the A380. They bet on a regional model with efficient jets, hence the Dreamliner. It’s clear which one is winning.

good summary. Amazon laid bare a system that is patently corrupt: the ridiculous beauty contest revealed a naked quest for subsidies and politicians looking for perks and handouts. NYC is the big loser in this telenovela

Jan temps were above historical averages. Feb has been below the historical averages and I can feel it. However, very few frost mornings. All in, a typical winter patter with Feb and March bringing a lot of rain.

The authors of prop 1 snuck in a public benefit requirement to ensure that most of the money would be spent on flood control, conservation, recycling, and all things non-storage. 1 of the 11 storage projects has been approved, meanwhile, $1.1b has been spent on non-storage

$7.5b of Prop 1 money was passed in 2014 and it took 4 years to award any of it for a water storage project. This is CA, we don’t do long term planning well. A new reservoir has not been built since the 1970s and we’ll have to see if this new one is actually completed

Bay Area rainfall and Sierra snowpack now above normal for this time of year. Drought is disappearing from the map.

I no petroleum products engineer but my understanding of how crackers work is that the crude oil is heated and as it evaporates in the cracker - this thing - captures the various refined products at different levels in the unit. They crack the hydrocarbons with heat

I bought Lisa some $14 flowers from Costco yesterday; feeling pretty inadequate right now

In reading through a lot of commentary about the Amazon HQ2 debacle in NYC, one thing is very clear. People find exactly the message they want to believe in this news. It’s what is happening across our society. Everything has meaning and I get to determine what it is

I wonder how those two Amazon employees who bought condos in Long Island City just before Amazon announced NYC as HQ2 are feeling today...

I hope there are more absurd examples of this to get people’s attention about how rigged the entire game is.

And fwiw, I think it was a bad deal for NY. Amazon created a ridiculous beauty contest competition to start with and then played to the vanity and fears of the politicians who were negotiating with them. I don’t fault them for taking full advantage of the system that exists

To oppose Amazon because it’s Amazon and they are big and wealthy, well it’s arbitrary and capricious and that’s not how the system is supposed to work. But you can argue that how the system is working now is not how it should work so we should change it

If your company created 25k jobs and spent the billions necessary on construction and services, the $3b might not be a bad trade. But if we’re going to oppose it on the size of the amount, then we need to put a cap on the opportunity zone regulations

It is intellectually dishonest to assert that the opposition was total and uniform. For every pol and group that opposed, there was one that supported it
