In our latest Exchanges at Goldman Sachs, Goldman Sachs Research’s Samantha Dart, senior energy strategist on the commodities team, Alberto Gandolfi, head of the European Utilities Research team, and Michele Della Vigna, head of Natural Resources Research in EMEA, explain the alternatives to — and timing of — Europe’s independence from Russian resources and how these shifts are reshaping the global energy markets.

Thanks for sharing the video. I watched the "Ron DeSantis vs Disney, with Freddy Gray and Charles C. W. Cooke" segment. DeSantis is a clever politician who figures out ways to motivate his Right-Wing political base and inflame the Woke Left against him. It's the strategy of divide and conquer that Trump employed. It succeeds by divided the people against themselves. He actually evoked liberal sympathy for a giant corporation--Disney. Not an easy thing to accomplish! He's gotten their attention too. And the Right sees him as a hero for it.

The exclusive two party system is destroying civil America. Society detroys itself from within. The Republican have been in control of Florida since the 90s. They have undermined the public school system and made the criminal justice system a "for profit" business. The corruption and cronyism is deeply entrenched. What's to like?

In the DeSantis segment the commentators sympathesy leaned middle to right. Is that they way it usually goes on Spectator TV? Even at that it disn't seem as ploarized as a lot of American media these days.

Democracy in crisis & Treasury groupthink – The Week in 60 Minutes | SpectatorTV



Cindy Yu, The Spectator’s broadcast editor, speaks to Julian Savulescu, director of Oxford University’s centre for practical ethics, about whether artificial intelligence could soon become sentient:

‘At some point we’re just going to have to be generous and afford rights to artificial intelligence.’ – Julian Savulescu

Sam Leith joins Julian to talk about whether Google may have made an artificial intelligence with feelings. On the rest of the show, Harper’s magazine president John R. MacArthur and journalist Anne-Elisabeth Moutet discuss Mélenchon’s threat to Macron, our deputy editor Freddy Gray says that the West has lost its political authority, and economists Howard Davies and Gerard Lyons debate whether the Treasury is fit for purpose.

John Connolly, The Spectator’s news editor, speaks to historian Anthony Seldon about whether Boris Johnson might resign:

It was there for 48 hours MagsJ. As you hadn't responded, I just assumed you found it deeply offensive.

It's bit 'old hat' now, but just for you, here it is in the original form . . .

Interesting, MagsJ, but no one mentioned the resounding thrashing that the Cons Party suffered in the two by-elections.

Tis a pity they couldn't wait a couple of weeks for the 'no confidence' vote. Had they done so, I do believe Mister Johnson would now be gone. Even his most loyal sycophants would be eyeing their majorities!

He would behead every single tory MP before he gave any consideration to falling on his sword!

Sorry MagsJ, not a fan of 'The Johnson'.

Global matters?

It is a Global embarrassment.

No one in the Party is talking about it!

It is how to perfect the art of turning an embarrassed blind eye!

It is fortunate that you have Kier Starmer leading the main opposition 'Party'.

It is time to change the system of selection!

It is what it is!

It is you wishing you hadn't asked, MagsJ. :)

It is you assuming far too much, whilst thinking far too little. #notevenclose #wishfulthinking #childmind

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get back that time, and I may need it for something important at some point in time.. Huh!? ~MagsJ

I don’t know much about British politics, honestly, I have bigger problems on my mind.

One thing you need to learn about Mag, is that if you call her a female, she’ll rage at you, even if she agrees with you, because she never likes being told by another who she is.

This disorder is so severe in her that she rages even if I abbreviate her name.
The purpose of life is to give everyone individually what they always want at the expense of no being - forever.

The biggest problem of life is the, “hey, I don’t want this to be happening” problem for everyone.

Welcome to thinking.
