Here’s the past week’s foursome from Newsfeed – Tim W. Ferguson (timwferguson.com) –my mini-commentaries off the recent media. This assortment includes: A review of the plight of “gig”-app drivers and delivery people around the world that forgets what these souls were doing before; a startling look at an upsurge in births from mothers with syphilis, which considers just about every social remedy except preventing such pregnancies; an effort by Thailand to lure the global “remote economy” with 10-year visas, and the underappreciated virtues of America’s freight-railroad sector. Surely something there for you!
