I purchased Olive Leaf extract when I was sick with a cold and trying to get through a really horrible cold when I first started my casual job. I don’t know if it actually helped relieve my cold any faster (it didn’t feel like it at the time), but I researched a lot of the other benefits that it has and I was impressed enough to keep taking it even though I wasn’t sure it was helping. I now take it at the first ‘sign’ of a cold, or when I know I haven’t been sleeping very well, or when I am feeling a bit run-down. I just take a capful for a couple of days, then stop, although many take this daily and swear by it.
Geographers on the whole have been particularly critical of Friedman's writings, views influenced by the large body of work within their field demonstrating the uneven nature of globalization, the strong influence place still has on people's lives, and the dependent relationships that have been established between the have and have-not regions in the current world-system. Geographer Harm de Blij detailed those arguments for the general public in Why Geography Matters: Three Challenges Facing America (2005) and The Power of Place: Geography, Destiny, and Globalization's Rough Landscape (2008).
Eleven years and countless columns later, the new book Thank You for Being Late takes that same structure and boldly complicates it. This book is built, again, around the idea that technological change is advancing beyond our ability to adapt. The culprits this time are three great "Accelerations": Moore's Law (microchip processing power doubles every 18 to 24 months), the market (globalization) and Mother Nature, which is his English-language term for the English-language term, "climate change and biodiversity loss."
