A recent Johns Hopkins study found that those who have had COVID, even cases that are asymptomatic or showed mild symptoms, are at greater risk of heart problems in future. This, then, is tragically another aspect of long COVID. https://publichealth.jhu.edu/2022/covid-and-the-heart-it-spares-no-one The key statement: "People who got COVID-19 and were asymptomatic, or got COVID-19 that was so mild that they were able to nurse it at home, without going to the doctor still developed an increased risk of heart problems a year out."
Very nice. While walking around a couch, I once had a direct experience of eternity. This was not an abstract idea but a perception; a knowing.

Climate change is making many things worse that people don't connect to climate change.
Climate change is making many things worse that people don't connect to climate change. More extreme wind shear during flights is an example. More extreme weather in general is another. I wonder how long it will be until wildfires ground planes, apart from their other effects on air.
Fascism’s Many Faces
One ideology with many names; it’s a chameleon — I stated in my book, A Celebration Society, that fascism is the ascendant ideology of the 21st century. I also pointed out that fascism usually arises from within democracies, which it then, when successful, usurps and demolishes. I look at most of the world’s strongmen as either fascists or would-be…

I guess that's one of the "prices" you pay for living on a small island. Given the craziness unfolding in the US, it seems a small price. (Didn't Robert Heinlein, writing in his Future History Timeline, predict a time around now in the US called "The Crazy Years"? He did predict Trump, though four years too early.)
