NATO & the Global Enduring Disorder
This project examines the coordination failures surrounding international approaches to climate change, tax havens, cryptocurrency, the crises in Ukraine, Syria, and Afghanistan, and more — seeking to move past merely problematising failures — to proposing solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.
“Ron Paul is so beloved because he is so principled. That is what we are focused on here. We will work with other people who share our interests, but we’re not going to sacrifice our principles to do it.”
“One of the big issues was health care reform; my own parents struggled with the cost of prescription medications, using up all of their discretionary income to pay for my father’s insulin and other medications.”
“Al Davis used to say, ‘Just win, baby.’ And I tell you that’s what Americans do best. Once we wake up, once we’re engaged, once we know that our culture is at risk, we come together and start communicating. Across-party lines, Democrats and Republicans start to talk, and we rise.”

Due to the novel coronavirus outbreak, millions of Americans are using Purell Hand Sanitizer more than ever before. As a brand on top of mind for many, in part due to constant use and reports of potential outages, a commonly asked question is who owns Purell, anyway? Read for an explanation below.
Purell was invented in 1988 at GOJO Industries, an Akron, Ohio-based hygiene and skin care products manufacturer. In 2004, GOJO sold the exclusive rights to distribute Purell to the consumer market to the pharmaceutical company Pfizer, while retaining rights to sell to the industrial customers. Two years later, rival pharmaceutical firm Johnson and Johnson purchased the rights from Pfizer.
Today, GOJO Industries has complete ownership of Purell after buying consumer selling rights from Johnson and Johnson in 2010. This means that the bottle of Purell you bought from store came from the original inventors, and they receive the profits from the sale.
