superposition Free

Superposition: In any network with 2 or more sources, the current or voltage for any component is the algebraic sum of the effects produced by each source acting separately. The superposition of forces in a mechanical/electrical network results in compromise and allows the building of better bridges and interfaces. Using one ideology is like using half of a pair of pliers to grasp something. My avatar represents the % of approval, by party, that our congress enjoys. John Adams wrote in a letter in 1780: "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." "I was no party man myself, and the first wish of my heart was, if parties did exist, to reconcile them." GEORGE WASHINGTON, letter to Thomas Jefferson, July 6, 1796.

    Covid-19, like the Flu, has become controlled by periodic vaccinations and is — for the time being, no longer a pandemic — and we still have not had a functional bipartisan Congress that is willing to work together for the people [rather than a political party] and pass legislation that would make our [virtual] border secure against illegal immigrants [mainly from China, India, etc].

    “We don’t look for an unqualified idiot with an IQ of 13 to perform our brain surgery, so why do some do that when it comes to running our country?”

    What makes you think that they would do ANYTHING that would make our government more functional? They’ve been going to extremes in finding dysfunctional/radical/incompetent candidates and then appointees when engineered into office. These folks are not supportive of our democracy.

    Central banks around the world have been raising interest rates this year with a degree of synchronicity not seen over the past five decades—a trend that is likely to continue well into next year, according to the report. Yet the currently expected trajectory of interest-rate increases and other policy actions may not be sufficient to bring global inflation back down to levels seen before the pandemic. Investors expect central banks to raise global monetary-policy rates to almost 4 percent through 2023—an increase of more than 2 percentage points over their 2021 average.

    Unless supply disruptions and labor-market pressures subside, those interest-rate increases could leave the global core inflation rate (excluding energy) at about 5 percent in 2023—nearly double the five-year average before the pandemic, the study finds. To cut global inflation to a rate consistent with their targets, central banks may need to raise interest rates by an additional 2 percentage points, according to the report’s model. If this were accompanied by financial-market stress, global GDP growth would slow to 0.5 percent in 2023—a 0.4 percent contraction in per–capita terms that would meet the technical definition of a global recession.
