IDEXX Becomes First Corporation to Exploit Maine’s Global Corporate Welfare Act

IDEXX Becomes First Corporation to Exploit Maine’s Global Corporate Welfare Act
I am now publishing on Medium, a place where over 10000 writers from around the world contribute, and where there are many publications to which one can submit one's work, or create one's own publication.

Readers can follow writers and publications. By so doing one creates a personally curated network  displayed in a section on Medium's home page,

There is original writing on every topic, from cooking to quantum physics. Many well known magazines are on Medium, At five dollars a month it is a good bang for the buck.

I have been accepted as a writer for three publications to date,

The Start Up is the most active Media publication,
Be Unique, which is a smaller and growing publication, and
Dialogue & Discourse, my favorite Media publication, thus far.

As I joined Medium was undergoing a policy change whereby writer compensation is no longer built on applause, but on the time readers who have a $5.00 a month membership to Medium spend reading one's posts. It has to be the paid membership because that is the source of the income distributed to writers. I have spend a decade in uncompensated independent research reported here on this blog as I developed my own writing skills. Now since our business no longer has a production, (which I intend to get back), I need to develop another stream of income. This will probably take a while on Medium, where some writers are pulling in a high end income, but I think I have what it takes. If you have been following this blog, or even just new to it, you can support my writing and research by joining Medium and following me.

Since Medium requires that every article be unique and published in one place only, that means I have to do the same thing here. I think that is a good policy which will encourage more thoughtful writing, which I am all for. Since my time is limited, I am posting the links to my Medium articles, which I might have formerly posted here, featuring the posts that specifically relate:

The Writer and the Activist Meeting At the Intersection

My latest article for Medium's Discourse and Dialogue sets the foundation for what I intend to tell in this venue. 

 I am old enough to say that the future is now, by which I mean that the world we live in now was the science fiction of my youth. Medium is very expressive of how the contemporary now culture in which now is only now and not also the future, views the world. This is a generation in which globalism is a fact of life everywhere. To some degree that makes me fit right in since I always took "think global, act local" as a practicing reality. This post is about the danger of using outmoded terms to identify what no longer exists.

Thank You for supporting my new venture on Medium, a very interesting place for writers and readers.

Tweet This: Government As a Secret Society The response to my informal suggestion that public accessibility to government could be improved by making information available in a searchable data base ( see previous post) subjectively confirmed that the  functioning power elite of Maine's economic development programs and policies are both intentional in instituting a political ideology that supersedes the will of the people, as expressed in the Maine State Constitution, and deceptive towards the general public. 1.Information made available on an agency website but not in a searchable database format may not provide the research and investigative tool needed by the public. The Freedom of Access Act does not require that public information be posted online in any particular format, just that public records be made available.

Which Currency will Emerge as Most Valued in the New World Order ?

pascal-meier-unsplash Also published on Medium;s Data Driven Investor I woke up in the morning contemplating how the world had just suddenly changed over night, or at least the human perception of the world. My thoughts then jumped to a time I have only read about, when a similar event happened in the realm of science. The story goes that around the turn of the twentieth century, scientists believed that mankind had figured everything out that there was to know about how the workings of the physical world except what was considered to be a minor detail. Existing theory could not account for why the observed spectrum of black body radiation, diverged at higher frequencies from what was predicted. Plank solved the mystery by making a different assumption about the nature of the frequency of black body radiation. Others were assuming that radiation was continuous but Plank assumed that atoms could only vibrate at certain frequencies that were whole number multiples of a base fre

I am a Baby Boomer, and this is the story of how my generation let the great wealth divide happen.

Featuring The Maine Capital Corporation of 1976  Established in the wake of a newly centralized United States Economy,  Image for post Image by Mackenzie Andersen using public domain clip art Legal status disclosure: This is an opinion of a layperson. independent researcher ,and private citizen of Maine. My generation, aka the baby boomers, did not create the great wealth divide that advantages the few at the expense of the many, but we allowed it to take place. In order to understand a great effect, one needs to understand the molecular response occurring at the scale of individual human interaction.This story posits that the centralization of the American economy was a large contributing factor in the creation and escalation of the wealth gap and examines how it manifested on location to the benefit of the private capital interests of the few. The story takes a step back in time to the when the first act of legislation passed after the centrally managed economy of Maine was declared
