Dominican Republic National Day 2017

Dominican Republic National Day 2017

Date: February 27, 2017

Today's Doodle marks the 173rd anniversary of the Dominican Republic's independence with a depiction of one of its most majestic natural features, Los Haitises National Park. The park is a unique piece of Dominican heritage; the convergence of San Lorenzo Bay, forests of mangroves, and birds like pelicans and parrots.

Every year, the Dominican Republic celebrates Carnival for the entire month of February — but none compare to the independence day celebrations at the end of the month. On this day, people don white, red, and blue to honor the colors of the national flag. They parade down the streets,  celebrate the richness of Dominican culture, and eat traditional dishes like bacalao, or flaked codfish, and mangú, a mashed plantain dish.  

Happy Independence Day, Dominican Republic!

Location: Dominican Republic

I think my main take-away is that spending 2.5 months slowly reading through a book about the history of money makes money start to feel really really fake. I mean I already knew it's a human construct that we all collectively agree to give meaning to, and which would otherwise have no objective worth, but the whole thing is just feeling a little more ridiculous now.

Anyway: this is a good book! And very interesting! Does a good job of challenging some assumptions that the field of economy is based on, which tend to ignore the complicatedness of human relationships in favour of equations based on rational self-interest. Also the myth of barter.

It was fascinating to read the anthropology/history about the ways various groups of humans throughout time and space have approached concepts of debt, trade, cash money or lack thereof, etc. A good reminder that our current understanding of these things is by no means obvious, universal, or the best way to do things.

I wasn't expecting this book to come out nearly so strongly in critique of modern capitalism at the end as it did. I remember this being a popular book when it came out, and North America as a whole is pretty pro-capitalism! So that was a bit of a surprise. Though maybe it shouldn't have been given that the 2008 financial crisis formed the impetus for the author to write this book.

An alternate version of the party scene from Avengers: Age of Ultron. For the first time in years Rhodey allows himself to hope.

"Pepper had called him three weeks prior. Three chirps from the Stark phone Tony had given him, one of the ‘first prototypes’ Tony had said in order to reassure him on the cost -though Rhodey knew better, alerted him to the caller.

‘Yeah, hi-why are you calling so--’

‘I ended things with Tony.’

Those five simple words had punched the breath from Rhodey’s lungs faster than any well landed blow during a training session..."
