    Future Meat

    Did you know that scientists are working on developing a meat-free alternative? A lab-based type of meat is the name for this modern type of meat. It has only been attempted in Singapore so far, but we will see...

    • Dear Brian :
      I am concerned about what you posted, not about you, but about the information presented. It’s bizarre to hear things like lab grown meat. Really makes you think how far we’ve gone in science.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “…place it in a bottle, and then scientists add nutrients to it…” I think this is kind of monstrous to be honest.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because it was a quite interesting thing I haven’t heard about before.

    The Covid Economy

    Ever since covid first started the United States has relied too heavily on other countries to create our everyday products like masks, clothing, hand sanitizer, and other important products. For example, Wessel thinks that “There’s been a recognition that...

    • Dear Bryan,
      I found your writing on the covid economy to be fascinating. Particularly “There’s been a recognition that if you rely too much on supply chains that are long and go to China, we may find ourselves in a bad place if we need something in a hurry” China has undoubtedly dominated global supply chains for decades now and has become “the world’s factory” since opening up under the policies of Deng Xiaoping. I think our supply chains have been exposed to weakness after COVID-19, and we will most likely see the rise of resilient supply chains. What do you think?

    • Bryan, this is a very interesting perspective, and I definitely agree with you. I like how throughout your examples of elements of our everyday life in America, you show how the theme of being comfortable with our situations may not be as positive as many think. In this case, it seems as though ‘comfortable’ is associated with ‘easy’–through relying on other countries for vital products and choosing to zoom rather than go into work, and like you implied, it’s generally not best to take the easy way out.
      Your comment about the desire to work from home reminds me of an article from The New York Times, “The Future of Offices When Workers Have a Choice” which discusses the possible transformation of the marketplace after this period of flexibility and essentially choice. Like you said, returning to normality by returning to the office seems like the least problematic route, but likely won’t be the case.
      Thank you for your analysis, Bryan, I look forward to reading about your further insight into the effects of Covid on our economy–a topic that needs to be considered.

    • I agree that that the younger generations are getting into politics more. For the people that aren’t, they need to ask themselves what world they want to leave their kids or grandkids. Having the ability to vote and not voting because it has little effect is absurd. I believe people should do what feels right to them. The polls aren’t really accurate and it shouldn’t change your decision on whether to vote or not. Younger people have influence that can change the election.

    • Hi Bryan, I personally don’t think lowering the voting age would be great for the United States. Young people haven’t experienced the world as much as older citizens. Back In the 19th century, life is tougher, young people saw harsher environments than today. Today young people are more towards socialist ideology since they don’t want to see people suffer. When we were young, we don’t think of things with money, most of the time, we can just have it by asking our parents. But the reality is that nothing is free, there is always someone that has to produce that stuff in order to give it to you, the consumer, which you vote with your money to the producers that make higher quality stuff while lower prices.
