Every four years, our calendars present us with a peculiar anomaly - a day that seems to materialize out of thin air, yet holds a significant place in the passage of time. This day, February 29th, commonly known as Leap Day, is a fascinating phenomenon that warrants a moment of reflection and celebration.

Leap Day exists to rectify a misalignment between our man-made Gregorian calendar and the astronomical reality of Earth's orbit around the sun. Without this adjustment, our calendars would gradually drift out of sync with the seasons, leading to a misplacement of equinoxes and solstices. Imagine celebrating the arrival of spring in the middle of winter or observing summer's peak during the fall. Leap Day ensures that our calendar remains in harmony with the natural rhythm of our planet.

Johannes Gutenberg

Johannes Gutenberg died 3, February 1468 in Mainz, his invention of mechanical movable type printing having begun the printing revolution.
A 180 copy print of the "Gutenberg Bible" changed Europe, helping increase literacy rates and spread of knowledge, as texts, and the ideas they contained, were discussed and debated. Information became more accessible. Until then this had been limited to a privileged few, but thanks to Gutenberg’s invention was now available to anyone who knew how to read Latin.
Or had access to someone who did. One of the most beautiful books ever printed, the Gutenberg Bible was the first in Europe to be mass-produced, printed instead of copied by hand, where assembly-line production of identical texts had not been possible. Although the process was already well-established in other parts of the world. His printing method, with movable metal type, combined some of his other inventions. Including adapted paper with ink made from linseed oil and lampblack. A fine soot.
Letters of indulgence printed for the church in their thousands between 1454 and 1455, were also a big hit. People bought them in the belief they would forgive their past sins.


How one of the richest nations on this planet, the land of Mercedes and Beemer, is shanghaiing (To shanghai someone is to kidnap or trick them into working for you) highly qualified healthcare personal from Mexico. A void that can not be filled fast and consequently reflects on the quality of healthcare the public receives here in Mexico! Now I do not neccessary claim that Germany does kidnap the individuals, in fact if you check attached video you see they are pretty happy. What they are NOT talking about is the cost of living even by an compensation that is fairly good. Germany has several issues pending, the future of Deutschland is not looking bright. In fact once could call Germany again the “sick man of Europe.” A whole variety of past economic policy mistakes cast a dark cloud over Germany’s longer-run economic prospects. There are three unsolvable problems that will lead to Germany's collapse as a modern economy in the coming 20 - 30 years according to Peter Zeihan, a geopolitical strategist. The labor shortage could become a serious structural problem for Germany. Because what has been predicted for decades is now becoming reality.
