想起美國有這一條反托拉斯法 Jan 29

United States antitrust law

United States antitrust law is a collection of federal and state government laws that regulates the conduct and organization of business corporations, generally to promote fair competition for the benefit of consumers. (The concept is called competition law in other English-speaking countries.) The main statutes are the Sherman Act of 1890, the Clayton Act of 1914 and the Federal Trade Commission Act of 1914. These Acts, first, restrict the formation of cartels and prohibit other collusive practices regarded as being in restraint of trade. Second, they restrict the mergers and acquisitions of organizations that could substantially lessen competition. Third, they prohibit the creation of a monopoly and the abuse of monopoly power.

The Federal Trade Commission, the U.S. Department of Justice, state governments and private parties who are sufficiently affected may all bring actions in the courts to enforce the antitrust laws. The scope of antitrust laws, and the degree to which they should interfere in an enterprise's freedom to conduct business, or to protect smaller businesses, communities and consumers, are strongly debated. One view, mostly closely associated with the "Chicago School of economics" suggests that antitrust laws should focus solely on the benefits to consumers and overall efficiency, while a broad range of legal and economic theory sees the role of antitrust laws as also controlling economic power in the public interest. wiki

A Cashless Society Jan 29

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/25/nyregion/no-cash-money-cashless-credit-debit-card.html



Cash Might Be King, but They Don’t Care
By ANDY NEWMANDEC. 25, 2017


The other day at Dig Inn, a just-opened lunch spot on Broadway and 38th Street in Midtown Manhattan, Shania Bryant committed a consumer faux pas. She placed her order for chicken and brown rice and yams, and when she got to the register, she held out a $50 bill.

“Sorry,” the cashier told her. “We don’t take cash.” Not, “We don’t take $50s.” No cash. Period.

“What?” Ms. Bryant asked.

The cashier patiently explained. Credit and debit cards were fine, as was the easy-to-download Dig Inn phone app. But the almighty dollar was powerless.

“I’ve never experienced that before,” said Ms. Bryant, 20, an assistant to a designer. “I guess we’re in new times.”

Indeed. Cashless businesses were once an isolated phenomenon, but now, similarly jarring experiences can be had across the street at Sweetgreen, or two blocks up at Two Forks, or next door to Two Forks at Dos Toros, or over on 41st Street at Bluestone Lane coffee. In Midtown and some other neighborhoods across New York City, cashless is fast on its way to becoming normal.

The Two Forks chain also does not take cash. Visa recently offered select merchants a $10,000 reward to switch away from cash transactions. Credit Hiroko Masuike/The New York Times
But it is not quite normal yet. So the cashier at Dig Inn cut Ms. Bryant a break.

“Just this one time, we’ll give it to you on the house,” she said, handing over the bag. “But just so you know, in the future.”

...


They can, and do. At Pokee, a poke-salad place in Greenwich Village, cash is treated like a quarantinable substance. “If you have exact change, we’ll take it,” said the woman behind the counter. “We give it to the manager and he puts it in a safe. Because we don’t have a register.”

Not surprisingly, the credit card companies, who make a commission on every credit card purchase, applaud the trend. Visa recently offered select merchants a $10,000 reward for depriving customers of their right to pay by the method of their choice. A Visa executive described this practice to CNN as offering shoppers “freedom from carrying cash.”

The perils of a cashless society
By MIKKI KENDALL
JAN 02, 2018

Visa last year offered up to 50 small businesses a $10,000 bounty to go cashless. Though it is still too early to know what will happen to the businesses that won the contest (Visa has not announced the winners yet), the key arguments in favor of cash-abandonment are that it would lead to more efficient service and carry a lower risk of theft. A recent New York Times article profiled restaurants in Manhattan that take only plastic, and boosters are looking forward to an entirely cashless society.
Doing away with cash may indeed sound appealing. Proponents often note that China and India have already gone further in this direction than the United States. But a few drawbacks are obvious: Card companies such as Visa charge merchants high processing fees, the risk of fraud balances out the lower risk of theft, older customers may not wish to make the change, and consumers will lose yet more privacy (corporations will have the ability to track every purchase made). Perhaps less obvious is that a cashless system will exclude the poor and near-poor.

Many impoverished people don't have credit cards or bank accounts. The very poor can't take plastic if they're begging on the street.

The cashless future won’t be easy and convenient. For too many, it’ll be a new hardship.

Yueyin,

I didn't especially look for the super blue blood moon last night; though earlier in the day, I did in passing hear the weatherman talk about the phenomenon with tremendous enthusiasm.

When I went to bed early last night - nothing of particular interest to view on TV for this person, BTW   icon_wink.gif - I noticed the backyard patio was brightly lit due to the super moon effect.

Lunar eclipse Jan 31

Steve,

你已经看到了 supermoon 和 blue moon。至于今早的 lunar eclipse (6:51-8:08 a.m. CT),你不一定能看到,因为那时奥斯汀已经天亮了。不过,在科罗拉多仍能看到。我今早约 5:50 起床,一开始能看到 "blood moon“ 和部分的 eclipse,但后来月亮被云遮住就看不大清了。尤其在 6:30 左右,月亮变得很暗,就几乎看不见了。过了一会儿又能看见,但看得不是很清楚。说实在的,我常被这些名词搞糊涂,估计很多人也不是很明白。

Confused about the super blue blood snow moon eclipse? Here's your guide to the sky spectacle.

【有感于2018月全食摄影爱好者扎堆故宫】

蓝血超月初升时
故宫墙边人满池
长枪短炮出楼角
尼康佳能知多少
可惜景观实有限
取景还须上西天
书画摄影艺同源
好手自古出民间
