Walking to the Roof of the World

Darrel Hartman 

Why climb Mount Everest? “Because it’s there,” George Mallory famously said. Then he died trying.

A century on, Mallory is best remembered for those three koanlike words. As Mick Conefrey writes in “Fallen: George Mallory and the Tragic 1924 Everest Expedition,” they are “both the simplest and the most enigmatic explanation of the lure of high mountains.”

Alas, Everest, highest of them all, is less enigmatic and arguably less alluring these days. Since Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay logged the first successful ascent in 1953, it has been summited more than 12,000 times by upward of 6,500 different people. Every spring the Nepali army removes several tons of trash from this high-elevation tourist attraction. The human-waste problem has gotten so bad that, as of this year, visitors are required to pack their poop and take it with them.

The Everest that Mallory explored in the 1920s had less excrement and more romance. The climbing equipment was rudimentary: the flax ropes were as threads compared to modern nylon ones, and the wool clothing and hobnail boots were more cumbersome and far less effective than modern goose down and crampons. Mr. Conefrey, a documentary filmmaker who has written several books about Himalayan mountaineering history, also notes another major difference between then and now: Mallory and his peers “took risks that many of today’s climbers would find unacceptable.”

How to identify spam email and scam offer?

 Identifying spam emails and scam offer can be crucial for protecting yourself from phishing attempts, malware, and other online threats. Fraudulent posting in Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social medias need to be understood too. Here are some common indicators to help you recognize spam:

  • Unknown Sender: Be cautious of emails from unfamiliar or suspicious senders. Verify the sender's email address, especially if it seems unusual or contains random characters.
  • Fraudulent Gift: Too good to be true request should be always not true. If someone is offering you free gift, easy money or unconvincing scheme, don't fall for it.
  • Unsolicited Emails: If you didn't subscribe to a mailing list or request information from a particular sender, be wary of unsolicited emails, especially those promising prizes, discounts, or offers that seem too good to be true.
  • Spelling and Grammar Errors: Many spam emails contain spelling and grammar mistakes. Legitimate organizations usually have proofreaders or automated systems to ensure their emails are error-free.
  • Urgent Requests: Beware of emails that pressure you to take immediate action or threaten negative consequences if you don't respond quickly. This tactic is often used in phishing emails to create a sense of urgency.
  • Suspicious Links: Hover your mouse over links in emails (without clicking) to see the actual URL. Be cautious of shortened URLs or links that don't match the purported destination. Legitimate businesses typically use their domain names in links.
  • Attachments from Unknown Sources: Avoid opening attachments from unknown or untrusted sources, as they may contain malware or viruses. Even if an email appears to be from someone you know, verify with the sender before opening any attachments.
  • Requests for Personal Information: Be wary of emails requesting sensitive information like passwords, account numbers, or Social Security numbers. Legitimate companies typically don't ask for this information via email.
  • Generic Greetings: Spam emails often use generic greetings like "Dear Sir/Madam" or "Dear Customer" instead of addressing you by name. Legitimate organizations are more likely to personalize their communications.
  • Mismatched URLs and Email Content: Check if the content of the email matches the sender's identity and the URLs provided. Discrepancies between the two can indicate a phishing attempt.
  • Spoofed Identities: Verify the legitimacy of emails claiming to be from reputable organizations by contacting them directly through their official website or phone number.

Who is Alexey Navalny?

  •   Alexey Navalny's funeral took place Friday in Moscow, according to the late Russian opposition figure's spokesperson. Thousands of mourners gathered to pay their respects to the former opposition figure — expressing defiance and calling Navalny a "true hero."

  • Navalny died on February 16, after Russia's prison service said he "felt unwell after a walk." His team and family have blamed Russian President Vladimir Putin for his death. 
  • His widow, Yulia Navalnaya, said this week she is concerned about possible arrests of funeral mourners. After Navalny's death, more than 400 people were detained at makeshift memorials across Russia, according to a human rights monitoring group.
  • Despite headlines across the globe, Navalny’s funeral was not featured on state broadcaster Russia 24, while the event was ongoing.
  • Navalny, who made global headlines when he was poisoned with a nerve agent in 2020, has encouraged Russians to "not give up" in the event of his death.

14 million jobs worldwide will vanish in the next 5 years

 Recent layoffs in big companies? Like Google, Amazon, META for Facebook, Apple, CISCO and Microsoft? How about other small companies such as SNAP, UBER, IBM, SAP, Dell, Salesforce etc. It is due to Artificial intelligence - AI or ChatGPT, human jobs will be dwindling.

Huge disruptions will rock the global job market over the next five years as the economy weakens and companies boost the adoption of technologies such as artificial intelligence.

That finding comes from the World Economic Forum, a report based on surveys of more than 800 companies. Per the report,employers expect to create 69 million new jobs by 2027 and eliminate 83 million positions. That will result in a net loss of 14 million jobs, equivalent to 2% of current employment. Many factors will feed labor market churn during that period. The shift to renewable energy systems will be a powerful engine for generating jobs, while slower economic growth and high inflation will drive losses. The rush to deploy artificial intelligence, meanwhile, will serve as both a positive and a negative force.

The Israel - Palestine Gaza Conflict : A complete story

 The Israel – Palestine conflict is rooted in pre-biblical times. Though its borders have shifted over the years, Palestinian territories used to be what is now Israel, Gaza, and the West Bank. 

Both Israeli Jews’ and Palestinian Arabs’ history, culture, and identity are linked to the Palestinian territories and to the ancient city of Jerusalem, “one of the most bitterly contested cities on earth,” according to The Associated Press.

The Ottoman Empire controlled the region for about 400 years before its defeat, along with Germany, in World War I. Britain was given control of Palestine by the League of Nations in 1920, under an order called the British Mandate.

In 1917, the British government signaled its support for the establishment of a Jewish state in Israel with the Balfour Declaration.

While the declaration stated support, it also said that “nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestinian territories, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.”

ChatGPT, write me a college essay?

After hearing so much buzz about ChatCPT, an AI search engine (, I asked ChatGPT, write me a college essay. Here is what Chat GPT gave me:    

Prompt: Describe a significant experience or achievement that has had a meaningful impact on your life.

Throughout my life, I have always been passionate about helping others. This passion has led me to pursue opportunities that allow me to make a positive impact in my community. One such opportunity was my involvement in a service project during my junior year of high school.

The service project involved working with a local non-profit organization that provides food and shelter to homeless individuals in our community. My role was to assist with meal preparation and serve food to the homeless individuals who came to the shelter. Initially, I was nervous about working with the homeless population, as I had never interacted with them before. However, my fears quickly dissipated as I got to know the individuals who came to the shelter.

What struck me the most was the resilience and strength of the individuals I worked with. Despite their difficult circumstances, they maintained a positive attitude and were grateful for the little things in life. This experience taught me the importance of empathy and compassion, and inspired me to continue volunteering with the non-profit organization.
