A very unhealthy Marketing battle of greedy profits:

“Deny, denounce, delay”: The battle over the risk of ultra-processed foods

Big Food is trying to dampen fears about the effects of industrially formulated substances...

... What the food companies really fear, he says, is that UPF ingredients such as additives and stabilizers will be targeted for labeling. “Once we start interfering with those, they will be prevented from making food that makes us eat more,”...


And the slimy adverse consequences to people be damned...

All in our world of deadly greedy profits...

UPF: Ultra-processed foods (most of the contents of a "Western" supermarket...)

We have been and continue to be badly slimed, but this time, for everyone:


Lawyers To Plastic Makers: Prepare For 'Astronomical' PFAS Lawsuits
wrote:
... Unlike tobacco, used by only a subset of the public, "pretty much every one of us in the United States is walking around with PFAS in our bodies," said Erik Olson, senior strategic director for environmental health at the Natural Resources Defense Council. "And we're being exposed without our knowledge or consent, often by industries that knew how dangerous the chemicals were, and failed to disclose that," he said. "That's a formula for really significant liability."



What more dead cats get dragged out of deadly bags?

Business with no morals?

And everything and everyone be damned?

Damning:

No Tory MPs voted positively on climate issues since party took power...

... And that very much includes my Tory MP.

Very obviously, my vote is going elsewhere...

And Sunak enjoys his golden forever holiday.

We have amazing clear views for a good change. Blue sky also.

Idyllic if it wasn't for various clangs and bangs...

Indeed so.

Still, on the ground, and on "Social Media", there is an explosive tinderbox of hatred and impatience to quell:


... Hours earlier, Hamas had fired eight rockets from Rafah towards Tel Aviv...

... How Israeli settlers took revenge for a murder in the West Bank


Tragically: "... an organised campaign of revenge that was incited in part using WhatsApp, carried out by co-ordinated groups on the ground, and targeted against ordinary Palestinians with no apparent connection to the murder other than the bad luck of living nearby..."


We have a long way to go.

Let's start now?...

We can see again!

The mist has cleared to reveal a beautiful patchwork of pale blue, and white fluffy, and a clear view.

Enjoying a brew before a planning meeting to sort out the rest of the day.

Meanwhile, the rest of the world is on a Bank Holiday and so... All is so beautifully calm and quiet. The loudest noise is the bubble and boil of the kettle and some chatter as the gang dance around jockeying for the best brew position...

... Very cool and calm and sensible heads are needed to untangle all of the grotesque provocations across that area...

And a cooling off and rehabilitation time is needed.

Unfortunately, we're going to continue with more of the same nastiness whilst Iran, Hamas, Hezbollah, Russia continue to feed and stir the fires of hatred...

And Israel is reshaped into an ever more angry and uncompromising punch drunk bear to lash out in ever greater anger...


Meanwhile, the rest of the world feebly watches in detachment...

Until that is, the oil price is threatened...


What of the humanity? What to positively usefully do??

Reminder: Note that the extermination of Israel is not an option.

Shrouded by a chilly mist and a preternatural twilight.

All is very still and quiet...

... Except... Hark! The steady rhythm of the clunk-clang of an old mechanical ratchet...

Enjoying a quiet bright wispy overcast with beautiful layers of view.

Good for a good gentle day.
