Davos Gets Sirius

Some puns never get old: This little news item came and went on the BBC front page within the space of a couple of hours early this morning:
The party is over. Well, at least it has been toned down. Once criticised as a glitzy event and schmoozefest for the very rich and powerful, the World Economic Forum is getting all serious.
Are they ever. The Beeb headline link had said "Davos Gets Serious." This image also came and went on the front page of the Davos website, just around the same time.

Double-click on the image to get a better look at the binary, large/small star motif imposed on the Davos banner. Click here for information on the significance of that icon. Click here to see the double star being used recently in similar settings.

Binary stars. Interesting...
