The Pandemic Is an Intuition Nightmare
As the U.S. heads towards the winter, the country is going round in circles, making the same conceptual errors that have plagued it since spring.Army ants will sometimes walk in circles until they die. The workers navigate by smelling the pheromone trails of workers in front of them, while laying down pheromones for others to follow. If these trails accidentally loop back on themselves, the ants are trapped. They become a thick, swirling vortex of bodies that resembles a hurricane as viewed from space. They march endlessly until they’re felled by exhaustion or dehydration. The ants can sense no picture bigger than what’s immediately ahead.

'Circuit break': PM considering national restrictions on social lives to curb infections
Boris Johnson is considering the introduction of new national restrictions - possibly as soon as next week - as the prime minister races to try and get a handle on the spread of coronavirus. With COVID-19 cases now doubling every seven to eight days, the government is looking at introducing nationwide restrictions for a short period to try to "short-circuit" the virus and slow the spread of the disease. Government figures stressed the plans being drawn up stopped short of a full national lockdown, as seen in the spring, when the country was told to "stay at home".
"I didn't start writing for a long time.
"But I did listen to a ton of new music. It just shows you that people need that to comfort them and feel united even though we're not together, we can listen to the same records and talk about it as it kind of feels like we listen together."
Miranda's 'Fooled Around and Fell in Love' performance, which featured Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde, Tenille Townes, Caylee Hammack and Elle King, was crowned Music Event of the Year at the ceremony on Wednesday night (16.09.20),
And she revealed that she's had Caylee's latest record, 'If It Wasn't You', on repeat.
Miranda has been open about her anxiety struggles during the pandemic, but when she "processed" the fact she won't be touring or jetting around the world to play shows for the foreseeable, she actually felt a sense of relief.
