How much does it cost to cure leprosy?

 

“Factoid: A brief or trivial item of news or information.”

“How much does it cost to treat leprosy? One $3 dose of antibiotic will cure a mild case; a $20 regimen of three antibiotics will cure a more severe case. The World Health Organization even provides the drugs free, but India‘s health care infrastructure is not good enough to identify the afflicted and get them the medicine they need.

So, more than 100,000 people in India are horribly disfigured by a disease that costs $3 to cure.

That is what it means to have a per capita GDP of $2,900.”

From Goodreads Via ― Charles Wheelan, Naked Economics: Undressing the Dismal Science

Humor: Going from Point to Point

Noted Cartoonist, Gary Larson has re-released much of his Far Side cartoon collection. For those who don’t know, he takes a somewhat skewed look at the world in which we live. Another characteristic of his humor is his frequent use of animals and “play” on common themes, ideas and trends.

The cartoon below is one good example of his style of visual quips.

Factoid – 20200819 – How did the Unabomber Get That Name?

A collection of unusual facts, trivia and minutiae harvested from the Internet and other places of intrigue.

Why was Ted Kaczynski called the Unabomber?

“Factoid: A brief or trivial item of news or information.”


Why was Ted Kaczynski referred to as “The Unabomber”? Because his early mail bombs were sent to universities (UN) & airlines (A).


via Wikipedia

Kaczynski was the subject of the longest and most expensive investigation in the history of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Before his identity was known, the FBI used the case identifier UNABOM (University and Airline Bomber) to refer to his case, which resulted in the media naming him the “Unabomber”. Via

20200727 Factoid: Kirkland Brand Better than the Name Brand

Did You Know This… Factoid? — 20200727

A collection of unusual facts, trivia and minutiae harvested from the Internet and other places of intrigue.

Factoid – 20200727

“Factoid: A brief or trivial item of news or information.”


Costco’s Kirkland brand items are as good as or better than the name brand item in any given category and often manufactured by the name brand company!

 

Adam Keesling explains why the assertion above is true and how he reached that conclusion:

“The answer is this: they get the best manufacturers in the world — who already have products on Costco shelves — to make Kirkland products. Yeah, you read that right. While customers might not know it, Kirkland products are often made by the same manufacturers who make the branded products that sit next to them on the shelves.”

It is a fascinating story and you can read it HERE – How Costco Convinces Brands to Cannibalize Themselves: An unlikely marriage where both sides win.

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men

Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

SignEdge: An Au Contraire Wine

Wine labels are really a new art form. With so many good to very good wines available at very reasonable prices, vineyards need a way to catch the eye of the prospective buyer.

I suppose a very bright label might spark an interest in one type of customer while a more subtle, but still clever label might attract another personality type.

As for me, I enjoy any wine label that is “different” which brings me to today’s SignEdge label from the Taub Family via the Russian River Valley.


Here is the back label which is somewhat hard to read, but I think you will get the idea that they are proud of David. S. Taub, the company’s founder.


You can read some of the history and story behind the wine at Palm Bay International.

Video: Visa’s Monkey Business Commerical

This is one of the most clever commercials I have seen in a long time. It isn’t like some of those inane commercials by a few companies who shall rename nameless. Someone working for Visa actually thought long and hard about this one and executed it well.

I think you will really like it!
