No thanks, but I'm considering a brown leather belt, if it's on sale.

At today's close, the stock is up 2% for the past 30 days, 20% for the last 6 months, and 46% YTD. 

"Decimated" and "on sale" might be slight exaggerations.

Apparently they're telling some government officials to stop using foreign-branded devices for work - not just Apple devices.  Tit-for-tat response to Huawei and Tik-Tok bans I guess.

China Decides iPhones Pose a National Security Risk
Employees at some Chinese ministries must stop using iPhones before the end of September.

You know what that means, they are about to activate their hidden chips and software apron the world.

I run my diffuser about 8 hours a day. I love it but I don't think it's helping with my memory problems. 

They talk about changing up the smells pretty frequently.
Also, since there's no "you" that's not doing the diffuser, maybe it's preventing? Hard to know.

Overnight olfactory enrichment using an odorant diffuser improves memory and modifies the uncinate fasciculus in older adults



FTA:

Results: A statistically significant 226% improvement was observed in the enriched group compared to the control group on the Rey Auditory Verbal Learning Test and improved functioning was observed in the left uncinate fasciculus, as assessed by mean diffusivity.

Conclusion: Minimal olfactory enrichment administered at night produces improvements in both cognitive and neural functioning. Thus, olfactory enrichment may provide an effective and low-effort pathway to improved brain health.

When a fragrance wafted through the bedrooms of older adults for two hours every night for six months, memories skyrocketed. In fact, participants in this study by neuroscientists from the University of California, Irvine (UCI), reaped a 226% increase in cognitive capacity compared to the control group. The researchers say the finding transforms the long-known tie between smell and memory into an easy, non-invasive technique for strengthening memory and potentially deterring dementia.

Shadowy group that owns 52,000 Bay Area acres may be planning to build a new city

"The group, which incorporated in Delaware, where it is not required to name the people behind the business, has been the subject of speculation and even a possible government probe. Starting in 2018, Flannery began purchasing parcels of land from Fairfield to Rio Vista. (One of its first purchases was near Flannery Road in Rio Vista, possibly giving the group its name.) By its own admission, Flannery paid over the market rate to acquire that land, but in the years since, nothing has been developed on it. The group is now the largest landowner in the county."
