    Re: ' ... global supply chain disruption,' - pharma update This is really an uplifting piece of news. Sorta the pharma equivalent of 3D printing. Makes perfect sense - and I hope they can get it field tested soon. https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-03455-x...

    Re: Russia, Ukraine, etc. Sorry - but I still disagree with how you're labeling my comments and interpretation. I will give you that the Tatar events do not conform precisely to the definition of genocide as adopted by the UN...

    Re: 'What Stalin did was bad enough without calling it genocide.' Just calling a spade, a spade. Based on evidence presented to and accepted by Russian courts since, it's in character and likely. As for your comment that the majority...
