The Hardest Job in the World
"In an ideal system, incoming presidents would have months of orientation to learn the ropes and break their rhetorical addiction. No such school exists for presidents. There is a transition process, but it doesn’t sufficiently prepare a president or his team. Presidential transitions are a bigger undertaking than any private-sector transfer of power. In business, large mergers and acquisitions typically take a year or more and involve hundreds of staffers. Dow Chemical and DuPont announced their $130 billion merger in December 2015, and it closed in September 2017. A president-elect and his team have two and a half months between victory and inauguration to figure out how to run a $4 trillion government with a civilian workforce of 2 million, to say nothing of the military. The United States federal government is the most complicated conglomerate on the planet."

A reminder of the 1983 old Ondo governorship elections | Cheta Nwanze | The Guardian NG
..On 16th of August, 1983, Akin Omoboriowo was declared winner by the Federal Electoral Commission (FEDECO). The impact of the declaration was immediate as allegations of vote rigging using “federal might” ensured that violence erupted in various parts of Ondo state. Some reports claimed that the outbreak of violence was the worst the history of post-independence Yorubaland, exceeding according to at least one newspaper, the “Wet è” riots of the 1960s. The Oyo Police Commissioner, Umaru Omolowo, who was in charge of security, announced that at least 40 people were killed in Ondo, including two NPN congressional candidates, Olaiya Fagbamigbe and Kunle Agunbiade, who were set ablaze, according to Omolowo, by an angry mob. Both Omoboriowo and Akerele barely made it out, with Akerele and his family skipping town the night before his house was burned down by displeased protesters.
To de-escalate, FEDECO postponed the scheduled senatorial elections in Ondo state indefinitely, and then, their own offices were hit by rioters, and burned to the ground.

..The build up to next month’s elections, has various shades of the last Ondo elections of the Second Republic. A falling out (former Solid Minerals Minister and former governor, Kayode Fayemi, and current governor, Ayo Fayose, were once friends, members of the same social group, then fell out for some reason no one seems to want to talk about), accusations of rigged primaries (the All Progressives Congress primaries), violence in those primaries, the concentration of “federal might” (the APC has formed a committee of 77, including 14 state governors who are apparently underemployed in their states), and a general desperation on the side of all parties. The stakes are high, and the rhetoric, even higher.

Time Machine project looks to map 5,000 years of European history - Geospatial World
The FET Flagship is structured around the development of a large-scale digitisation and computing infrastructure mapping millennia of European historical and geographical evolution, transforming kilometres of archives, large collections from museums and other geo-historical datasets into a distributed digital information system. To succeed, a series of fundamental breakthroughs are targeted in artificial intelligence, robotics and IT, boosting these enabling technologies in Europe. Massive digitisation infrastructures and high-performance computing will be coupled with machine learning techniques to produce a multi-scale simulation of more than 5000 years of history.

The Time Machine will make Europe the leader in the extraction and analysis of big data of the past. It will profoundly transform research methods and practices in the humanities, allowing bolder questions to be asked and new levels of understanding to be reached. It will bring a new era of open access to sources, where past and on-going research will become open sciences. This constant source of new knowledge will be an economic motor, giving rise to new professions, new services and new products, impacting not only on education, cultural heritage and creative industries, but also policy making, and economic societal and environmental modeling.

The Time Machine is based on Europe’s unique assets — its long history, its multilingualism and multiculturalism. It is designed to bring together European research institutions, cultural heritage stakeholders, decision makers, businesses and the general public in a unique endeavour: turning the history of Europe into a living resource for co-creating its future.
