Peaches just don't last long Joe. Herb can be kept for a long time I'm told, but why would you ?

This ought to make Doc happy:

Measuring the global empathy gap

IN JUST two days last week, the terrorists of Islamic State (IS) murdered 166 civilians outside their home base of Syria and Iraq. The group claimed responsibility for two bomb blasts that killed 37 people in Beirut on November 12th. The following night, 129 died in a series of co-ordinated attacks in Paris. The shootings and explosions in France set off a global outpouring of sympathy, grief and support: for the first time, Facebook activated its “safety check” feature for an event other than a natural disaster. It also allowed users to change their profile photographs to incorporate the hues of France’s tricolour flag with a click.

Before long, online critics began to object that the social network had not taken similar measures in response to the Beirut attacks, and more broadly that the press had ignored equally tragic deaths in the Arab world. #AllLivesMatter, a Twitter hashtag, began trending as a riposte. In turn, responses sprouted up justifying the discrepancy, arguing that it is Western readers who ignore coverage of far-off atrocities, and that mass violence is less common, and therefore more newsworthy, in France than in Lebanon, whose bloody civil war lasted until 1990 and which borders Syria.

The charge that Western mass media failed to report on the bombs in Beirut does not withstand a simple web-search. According to Google, 5,190 articles appeared on the subject on November 12th (the day before the Paris attacks). As of November 18th, 15,000 are available, with more than 400—including one in the New York Times—dedicated to comparing the treatment of the tragedies in the two cities. However, it is true that the attacks in Paris generated coverage on a different magnitude, yielding 2.5m stories on November 14th (although these figures probably overstate the disparity, since they count each appearance of wire-service reports that can be published hundreds of times). And after an initial surge in search traffic for “Beirut” following the bombings, the internet’s interest quickly waned, only to recover following the news from Paris. Even then, searches for “Beirut” did not reach even 1% of the maximum volume for “Paris” (see chart).

Breaking down search traffic by country supports the argument that cultural proximity accounts for the divergent degrees of foreign attention to the attacks. The only nation where “Beirut” was searched more than “Paris” was, unsurprisingly, Lebanon. But not everyone was more interested in Paris (as measured by search volume) than Beirut by the same amount. For example, Google users in Turkey, which borders Lebanon, searched for Beirut 0.6% as often as the Lebanese, and searched for Paris 5% as often as the French, a gap of 4.4 percentage points. In contrast, people in Luxembourg, which borders France, searched for Beirut 1.8% as often as the Lebanese and for Paris 64% as often as the French, a gap of 62 percentage points. Our map (above) presents this difference in shades of blue, with the deepest blue equivalent to a 100 percentage-point difference (France) in relative search volume, and the least blue, equivalent to no difference in relative search volume: Syria, as it happens.

As you might expect given geography and language, the gap is largest in former French colonies and in countries neighbouring France. It is smallest in Asia, the Middle East and North Africa. Sweden has a relatively small “empathy gap” of 21 percentage points, which might reflect the high number of Syrian refugees in the country who have relatives in Lebanon. After adjusting these figures for population and internet penetration in each country, a decent proxy for Google-search use, the world’s total empathy gap comes to 520m people. In other words, 18% of total internet users thought searching for Paris warranted relatively more attention than searching for Beirut.

In a perfectly empathetic world, with no bias towards geography, language, culture and so forth, this gap would be nil. Given the outrage on social media, perhaps next time it might. Sadly, as the threat of terrorism seemingly increases, there may be another opportunity to test this phenomenon far too soon.

Fellas on the ground here in Brussels. I'm safe Edgar. Police are everywhere, especially tourist areas and the train stations. Randomly came
Upon a cop/military dude with some sick looking machine gun. I've seen something to it similar but wasn't exactly the same. Also yesterday in London had cops out everywhere with machine gun looked like SIG 516s. In random spots too. Patrolling 2 at a time. In neighborhoods even.

They celebrate the Saint-Verhaegen. Seems they usually have a parade, which won't take place this year, but there'll be a gathering.

I'm not a frencho, but I know the best place to eat in Brussels. It's a little fish & chips shop tucked away in the government district:

Also, that weapon you saw the Belgian policeman carrying was obviously a Fabrique Nationale something-something...maybe as simple as a FN-P90 if you're ignorant of modern small arms, or maybe something newer and more advanced. As Julius Caesar knew well, the Belgians are a surprisingly warlike folk, and FN is the best small arms manufacturer in the world. Embarrassing open secret that the best weapons in the American arsenal are FN models, as well. Go NATO.
