DO NOT PURCHASE EVENT TICKETS FROM VIAGOGO! H.

A fan who bought Ed Sheeran tickets FROM VIAGOGO found that they were invalid because the singer would not let in anyone who had bought from an unofficial supplier

Britain’s biggest ticket reselling website is being taken to court for misleading music and sports fans.

The competition watchdog announced yesterday that it was taking legal action against Viagogo after people who bought tickets on the website reported being turned away from events and denied refunds.

In one case, a family wasted more than £400 buying Ed Sheeran tickets on the website because the singer only allows entry to fans who buy seats through official vendors.

Viagogo did not warn the customer that the tickets might be invalid and when she found out said that the only way for her to get her money back was to resell them to someone else even though the subsequent buyer would also be denied entry.

India: Gurus Gone Bad

He called himself a messenger of God. As one of India's most powerful gurus, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh claimed to have 60 million devotees. Politicians lined up to secure his support. Disciples showered him with money in exchange for his blessing.

But the spiritual leader was far from holy. In August 2017, he was convicted of sexually assaulting two female followers, blowing the lid on a seedy underworld of rape and accusations of murder and mass castration within the walls of his ashram.

From SWANN´S WAY, by Marcel Proust
pp.102:
`And so, as I always imagined the woman I loved in the setting I most longed for at the time to visit, if I wished that it were she who showed it to me, who opened to me the gates of the unknown world, it was not by the mere hazard of a simple association of thoughts; no, it was because my dreams of travel and of love were only moments— which I isolate artificially today as though I were cutting sections at different heights in a jet of water, iridescent by seemingly without flow or motion— in a single, undeviating, irresistible outpouring of all the forces of my life!´
Wow, all I can write is WOW!
This thought from Proust, may be some of the greatest prose I´ve ever read in my life!

But, what I read now from Marcel Proust, as well as Virginia Woolf, is generally about people and relatioships.  Is there no other topic? I suppose why Science Fiction was invented?
What other topics might there be — spiritual? Possibly human relationships with the unknown?

...we’re talking here is the fact that we’ve exerted such an impact on planetary processes that we humans have become a geological force in our own right. We’ve propelled ourselves out of the Holocene, where we experienced friendly conditions for 12,000 years, and have dumped ourselves in a new geological era, the Anthropocene, where conditions are likely to be bad news.

To give you a sense of scale here, consider that our Solar System and all the planets, moons, and random loose debris within it, is held in place by a single star. Astronomers estimate that the Milky Way, our home galaxy, contains as many as 400 billion stars. Multiply that by 15,000 and you have a ballpark idea of how many stars and potential planets and moons we’re seeing here — give or take a few trillion stars because not all galaxies are created equal.
