Cladding: Panels failed fire tests 13 years before Grenfell
Leaked test results suggest the government and construction industry had early evidence of the dangers posed by cladding, 13 years before the Grenfell Tower fire.

Panels, commonly used on buildings in the UK, failed fire tests carried out in 2004.

The results, marked "Commercial in confidence", were circulated within an industry advisory group.

They were recently passed to the BBC and, until now, never made public.
Five cladding systems were tested, including one with aluminium panels, although the primary aim was not to assess the risk of particular designs

The aluminium and plastic cladding at Grenfell has been blamed for spreading the fire.

Two were constructed from high pressure laminate (HPL) boards, formed from wood, or paper fibre, widely used on modern apartment blocks in the UK.

In the tests, all five cladding systems were judged to have failed against "proposed performance criteria".

Most of the tests were carried out without using "fire breaks" - extra components which should be fitted to block the spread of flames.

However, fire breaks were used in one high pressure laminate panel system, but it still failed.

Trumps friend Roger Stone served with Capitol riot lawsuit during radio interview
The latest lawsuit filed against Stone was by seven Capitol police officers, who allege he was among those responsible for the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot. Other defendants include former President Trump, Rudy Giuliani and Alex Jones.
The suit, filed in August, accuses Stone of disseminating false claims of election fraud that ultimately led to the attack on the Capitol, as well as promoting and helping to fundraise for the "Stop the Steal" rally that preceded the attack.
"Trump's and his co-conspirators’ repeated cries of election fraud caused many of his supporters, including other Defendants, to plan to employ force, intimidation, and threats on his behalf to keep him in office, should he lose the election," the suit reads.
The officers are seeking punitive damages from the defendants, with the amount to be determined by a jury should it go to trial.
Stone was served just days before a Sept. 18 rally in D.C. meant to support the insurrectionists who attacked the Capitol in January. Law enforcement officials have ramped up security ahead of this event, re-erecting a seven-foot fence around the main Capitol building and installing high-tech security cameras for better view of the area.
Around 700 people are expected to be in attendance at the so-called "Justice for J6" rally.

Passed out man found with 300 California recall ballots
TORRANCE, Calif. (AP) — California authorities are investigating why a man found passed out in a car had more than 300 unopened mail-in ballots for the gubernatorial recall election.

The man was arrested Aug. 16 after being found in a store parking lot in Torrance, police said.

Investigators with the Torrance police special investigations division, the U.S. Postal Service and Los Angeles County district attorney’s public integrity unit were trying to determine how the ballots ended up in the suspect’s vehicle and what his intent was in having them, police said in a Facebook statement Monday.

Sgt. Mark Ponegalek told KABC-TV that the ballots were unopened and had not been tampered with.

The man was a felon who had drugs, a loaded firearm, thousands of pieces of mail, a scale and multiple California driver licenses and credit cards in other people’s name, police said.

The man, whose name was not released, was arrested for investigation of weapons, narcotics and forgery violations.

Replacement ballots will be sent out, police said.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2021/09/13/just-59-double-jabbed-people-50000-died-covid-year-says-ons/
Just 59 Covid deaths this year among people who were healthy and double-jabbed

Around 99pc of victims had not had two does, but as Telegraph's Science Editor explains, three jabs are unlikely to bring much added benefit

Only 59 fully vaccinated people without serious health conditions died from Covid-19 out of more than 50,000 deaths in England this year, new figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show.

In the first study of deaths by vaccination status, the ONS found that around 99 per cent of Covid-19 deaths between January 2 and July 2 2021 were in people who had not had two doses.

Overall 640 (1.2 per cent) of deaths were in those who had received both vaccine doses, but the ONS said many of those could have been infections picked up before the second dose.

Just 256 deaths (0.5 per cent) were considered true “breakthrough” infections where the second dose had long enough to work, but still did not offer protection.

However, the average age of those “breakthrough” infections was 84 and the majority (76 per cent) were classed as “extremely clinically vulnerable”. Just 59 did not have serious medical conditions.

https://www.cnbc.com/2021/09/10/new-study-finds-unvaccinated-are-11-times-more-likely-to-die-from-covid-cdc-says-.html
Key Points

More than 600,000 Covid cases from April through mid-July were analyzed and linked to vaccination status.
Those who were unvaccinated were about 4.5 times more likely to contract the virus, more than 10 times more likely to be hospitalized with the virus, and 11 times more likely to die from the disease.
About 54% of the U.S. population is fully vaccinated, according to the CDC.

There is only one logical conclusion.
GET VACCINATED

The numbers have been crunched the CONTROL GROUP is no longer needed.

World’s biggest factory to suck carbon from the sky turns on in Iceland
Orca system mixes greenhouse gas with water and pumps it underground
The world’s first and largest factory to capture and convert carbon dioxide from the air into stone began operations in Iceland on Wednesday.

The Orca plant set up by Swiss startup Climeworks AG to reduce the effects of the greenhouse gas on the planet represents a milestone in the direct air capture industry.

While Climeworks has built 16 installations across Europe, the Orca plant is the only one that permanently captures and stores CO2 rather than recycling it.

According to Climeworks, every year the factory has a capacity to capture 4,000 tons of CO2, which is safely and permanently stored via a chemical process developed by Carbfix, an academic-industrial partnership in Iceland.

In this process, CO2 captured from the atmosphere is mineralised underground and converted into stones.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Gov. Justice: Number of ICU patients reaches all-time high; West Virginia experiencing fastest acceleration of new cases in nation
Quotes from the video;
“When you turn your back and say, ‘Nope, I’m not doing that,’ all you’re doing is entering the death drawing,” Justice said.

He added: “If I knew for certain that there was going to be eight or nine people die by next Tuesday, and I could be one of them if I don’t take the vaccine!? What in the world do you think I would do? I mean, I would run over top of somebody. Because I don’t want to take a chance when the wheels spin
At this point, Justice mimicked a spinning wheel of chance — “brrrrrrrr.”

“ — that it could come up Jim Justice.”
“Well you’ve got another lottery going on,” he said, “and it’s the death lottery.”

Justice went on to go after conservative vaccine skeptics and suggested that they would only be converted by mass death.

That's true, but there are reasons for that, either steps are taken to contain the virus. Such as masks, isolation and vaccines. Or, the virus runs out of people to infect.

Exponential Decay is mo like it.

Time, as Always is the Enemy of a Virus.
More like the friend of the virus. If we allow the virus to stay in the community, by not getting vaccinated then in time it will mutilate thousands of times and probably one of these mutilations will make the vaccines less efficient, causing even more people to suffer or die.

BBC - Boeing: Directors to face investor lawsuit over fatal crashes
Boeing's board of directors must face a lawsuit from shareholders over two fatal crashes involving its 737 Max plane, a US judge has ruled.

Morgan Zurn said the first crash was a "red flag" about a key safety system on the aircraft "that the board should have heeded but instead ignored".

He said the real victims were those who died and their families but investors had also "lost billions of dollars".

Boeing said it would "consider next steps".

In his ruling the Delaware judge said: "While it may seem callous in the face of [the families'] losses, corporate law recognizes another set of victims: Boeing as an enterprise, and its stockholders.

"Stockholders have come to this court claiming Boeing's directors and officers failed them in overseeing mission-critical airplane safety to protect enterprise and stockholder value."

Nearly three-quarters of unvaccinated Americans would quit their jobs if they were required to take a COVID-19 vaccine, according to a poll by the Washington Post and ABC News.

I wonder how many actually would quit.
Can they afford it, when only 39% of the population can afford an unexpected bill of $1,000? https://www.cnbc.com/2021/01/11/just-39percent-of-americans-could-pay-for-a-1000-emergency-expense.html
Do they think other employers of similar positions also not employ the unvaccinated?

The guidelines for spectators are available at https://www.pgatour.com/knowbeforeyougo.html
Masks/Face Coverings
Indoors: Per CDC Guidelines, regardless of vaccination status, masks are required at all times indoors or in fully enclosed spaces, unless actively eating or drinking.
Outdoors: Per CDC Guidelines, fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear a mask outdoors unless otherwise mandated by state or local law or regulations and unvaccinated individuals should wear a mask outdoors when they cannot be socially distant or otherwise mandated by state or local law or regulations.
Prior to Arrival
Those who feel ill or are experience symptoms of COVID-19 will not be admitted to PGA TOUR tournaments. Please check your temperature before arrival to confirm you do not have a fever of over 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or more. For more information on symptoms and procedures for those experiencing them, please visit the CDC’s website, which can be found here.

Arrival
Upon arrival to the event, each guest must acknowledge that they are not experiencing any symptoms of COVID.


So if those guidelines are followed and as golf courses always seem to be windy places the chances of infection should be low.

WaPo - Trump and top ally get booed by the monster Trump’s GOP created
Speaking at a rally in Alabama, Trump offered one of his most forceful endorsements of vaccines to date.
“I believe totally in your freedoms. I do. You’ve got to do what you have to do,” Trump said, before adding with emphasis: “But, I recommend take the vaccines. It’s good. I did it. Take the vaccines.”
It was at this point that the crowd began to stir. Some didn’t like this message from the former president they had come to support. There were some jeers.
Trump again qualified his remarks by noting that this is about personal choice.
“You got — no, that’s okay. That’s all right. You got your freedoms. But I happened to take the vaccine,” Trump said, before defusing the situation a bit with a jokey comment: “If it doesn’t work, you’ll be the first to know.”
But then he added: “But it is working.”
It was a sight to behold: Trump being booed at a rally by his own supporters.

The largest TBM is below 18 m (60ft) in diameter. The Mississippi is how big, at the point you want to tap into it?

Plus you cannot just think I'll start boring here and head for _______ on the west of the Rockies, you have to know the geology and find a route that the machine can bore through with minimal risk of stopping. If a TBM gets stuck for too long then you have just put millions into a blocked tube with no chance of getting your money or the machine back.

Just go study the tunnels built using TBM's and find out why the change direction so many times.

Every hotdog eaten shortens life by 36 minutes
University of Michigan, Health Nutrition Index
Small changes in diet could help you live healthier, more sustainably
Eating a hot dog could cost you 36 minutes of healthy life, while choosing to eat a serving of nuts instead could help you gain 26 minutes of extra healthy life, according to a University of Michigan study.

The study, published in the journal Nature Food, evaluated more than 5,800 foods, ranking them by their nutritional disease burden to humans and their impact on the environment. It found that substituting 10% of daily caloric intake from beef and processed meats for a mix of fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes and select seafood could reduce your dietary carbon footprint by one-third and allow people to gain 48 minutes of healthy minutes per day.

BBC video - Anger, grief, rage
In an emotional speech, Conservative MP Tom Tugendhat tells of the anger, grief and rage felt by veterans at the "abandonment" of Afghanistan.

The foreign affairs committee chairman, who served in Afghanistan, said President Biden's comments about the Afghan military were "shameful".

And he revealed that the health secretary had made a promise to him to "to do more for veterans' mental health".

MPs listened in silence to his speech, which was greeted with cheering and applause, which is not normally allowed in the Commons chamber.

Tesla Autopilot: US opens official investigation into self-driving tech
The US federal agency in charge of road safety is opening an official investigation into Tesla's "self-driving" Autopilot system.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said it was acting following 11 Tesla crashes since 2018 involving emergency vehicles.
In some cases, the Tesla vehicles "crashed directly into the vehicles of first responders", it said.
...
The agency was primarily concerned with an apparent inability of Tesla vehicles to cope with vehicles stopped in the road - specifically emergency vehicles attending an incident.
Among the list of cases was one where a Tesla "ploughed into the rear" of a parked fire engine attending an accident, and another in which a parked police car was struck.
The NHTSA said it was opening its preliminary investigation into "the technologies and methods used to monitor, assist, and enforce the driver's engagement", while using Autopilot.
It said that in the 11 crashes that prompted its investigation, either Autopilot or a system called Traffic Aware Cruise Control had been active "just prior" to the collisions.


From The Telegraph -
In one case in California last month, a Tesla car sped through a road closure into an empty police car. In another crash in Michigan, a Tesla hit a police car with its emergency lights on after an officer had stopped to investigate a collision.

Now if this is true then I'm totally flabbergasted as we've been doing regular sewage sampling at all of our treatment plants here since the HIV days. :-O

Sewage is the latest disease detection tool for Covid-19.

It has come in handy a few times here for a variety of disease outbreaks. Even this little country village's water treatment plant sends off regular samples to be tested.

Been testing the sewage since early 2020 over here.

https://post.parliament.uk/monitoring-wastewater-for-covid-19/
Since early 2020, the UK has been carrying out wastewater monitoring for COVID-19. Wastewater samples are collected regularly across the country and analysed for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Wastewater monitoring is part of monitoring systems to detect new COVID-19 outbreaks and support test and trace approaches.

With that many valve failures, you have to say there is either a fundamental design fault or faulty construction.
Either way Boeing should initiate investigations into both scenarios and not even consider a launch until the cause has been rectified, at their own expense.

That hydrogen, if it is extracted from natural gas is a very dirty green fuel.
How green is blue hydrogen?
Abstract

Hydrogen is often viewed as an important energy carrier in a future decarbonized world. Currently, most hydrogen is produced by steam reforming of methane in natural gas (“gray hydrogen”), with high carbon dioxide emissions. Increasingly, many propose using carbon capture and storage to reduce these emissions, producing so-called “blue hydrogen,” frequently promoted as low emissions. We undertake the first effort in a peer-reviewed paper to examine the lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions of blue hydrogen accounting for emissions of both carbon dioxide and unburned fugitive methane. Far from being low carbon, greenhouse gas emissions from the production of blue hydrogen are quite high, particularly due to the release of fugitive methane. For our default assumptions (3.5% emission rate of methane from natural gas and a 20-year global warming potential), total carbon dioxide equivalent emissions for blue hydrogen are only 9%-12% less than for gray hydrogen. While carbon dioxide emissions are lower, fugitive methane emissions for blue hydrogen are higher than for gray hydrogen because of an increased use of natural gas to power the carbon capture. Perhaps surprisingly, the greenhouse gas footprint of blue hydrogen is more than 20% greater than burning natural gas or coal for heat and some 60% greater than burning diesel oil for heat, again with our default assumptions. In a sensitivity analysis in which the methane emission rate from natural gas is reduced to a low value of 1.54%, greenhouse gas emissions from blue hydrogen are still greater than from simply burning natural gas, and are only 18%-25% less than for gray hydrogen. Our analysis assumes that captured carbon dioxide can be stored indefinitely, an optimistic and unproven assumption. Even if true though, the use of blue hydrogen appears difficult to justify on climate grounds.

The anti-vaxxers who stormed the wrong BBC building are just an embarrassment
Those who turned up at a location not used by the Beeb since 2013 are confused and dangerous half-wits
It is rarely helpful to insult people with whom you disagree. The moment you start mud-slinging, so the theory goes, the argument has been lost. Far better to try and persuade your opponents with evidence and reason.

However, I find myself at a loss this morning. So let’s call a spade a spade. The anti-vaxxers who yesterday attempted to storm the BBC – but turned up at a building not used by the BBC since 2013 – are confused and dangerous half-wits, who have wallowed too long in conspiracy theories and nonsense.

If there was ever a moment to take stock and ask yourself, “what am I doing with my life?”, this was surely it. You’re there in west London on a wet Monday afternoon, trying to break into the wrong building to confront BBC journalists who aren’t there. And all because of… life-saving vaccines. Is this really how it was meant to be? Come on, let’s get you home and put the kettle on.

Of course it will not be a problem for Boris, he will just find another tax to replace losses at about £550/car owner or £650/household.

An estimate for the cost of the networks of car chargers (£45.9 billion) and the upgrades to the electricity networks (£48 billion) has been published in the Telegraph. About £3,500/household on average.
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2021/08/07/boris-johnsons-push-net-zero-plunged-chaos/

This is a cost not seen by Boris and will have to be added to the ~£5,000 extra for green cars, £10,000 for the cost of installing heat pumps, another £10,000 to improve home insulation including new triple glazing, as heat pumps don't heat as much as gas boilers and the costs of changing from gas to hydrogen for cooking, of which the costs are not known yet.
All to be completed by 2050.

So the extra costs for each household would be 3,500 + (3 * 5,000) +10,000 +10,000 + X,000 = 38.5 + x thousand/household over the next 28 years. assuming a new car every 10 years but that's probably an under estimate, and will certainly be more for families with more than one car.

They must of been very short back in them days as 1 of my strides (left foot to right) is 1 metre. Thankfully the French sorted things out in the 1790s ;-)

British Army stride, left to right, is 30", I find it hard to believe that your stride is almost 10" longer.
It all depends on 1's size I guess, but then again I'm taller than most at 1.9m (my cubit would be longer than most too). ;-)

My sources say that at that height, they would estimate your natural stride length at 33" or 0.85m.

Texas GOP Official Mocked COVID Five Days Before He Died of Virus
A GOP official from Texas who regularly espoused anti-vaccine and anti-mask views online has died from COVID-19, five days after posting a meme on Facebook questioning the wisdom of getting inoculated against COVID.

Dickinson City Council member and State Republican Executive Committee member H. Scott Apley, 45, died in a local hospital around 3 a.m. Wednesday morning, according to a GoFundMe page set up to help Apley’s family with expenses. He was admitted to the facility in Galveston on Sunday with “pneumonia-like symptoms,” and was hooked up to a ventilator as his condition worsened. His wife was also infected, the family said.

I think he was talking about miles being the antiquated measurement unit. The metre was established during the rule of Napoleon in the early 19th century.

Two reasons to reject the metre there, Napoleon and it was established in France. Not withstanding the fact they got there sums wrong, or rather they found that the method used produced different results at different locations. And so in all honesty the metre hasn't got solid foundations.

And a further step in the skeptical mode. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/cars/comment/electric-cars-far-environmental-free-lunch/
A recent road test of Volkswagen’s ID.4, the first global application of Europe’s largest car maker’s new electric vehicle platform, saw your correspondent drive 500 miles to Cornwall and back just a week after driving exactly the same journey in a turbodiesel estate car. The battery-fuelled journey wasn’t easy, with missing or malfunctioning charging stations and one farmer determined to lock the gate, trapping the charging VW in a field.
An afternoon with a calculator and a set of little-known Government figures for the greenhouse gas contribution of charging electricity showed that for this journey the battery-electric VW cost about 30 per cent more to purchase, and 30 per cent more to charge, than buying and fuelling an equivalent turbodiesel. And on an overall basis, it saved only about half the CO2 emissions.
...
It’s hard to swallow the impression that in subsidising second-car runabouts for the UK’s wealthy, the Government is ignoring the challenge and neo-imperialist tactics that will be required to secure the raw materials to build the number of batteries required to get to net zero.
In 2019 Richard Herrington, the Natural History Museum’s head of earth sciences, wrote to the Committee on Climate Change pointing out that to meet UK electric car targets will require the entire planet’s production of neodymium, three quarters of its lithium output and 12 per cent of its copper production, not to mention a 20 per cent increase in UK electricity generation.
Charities and environmental groups have started to notice, too. There are protests against the environmental damage from mining lithium, copper and plundering wind power in Chile, while the scandalous working conditions and child labour in artisanal cobalt mines in the Democratic Republic of Congo are still a dirty secret of the electric car industry.

Looks like the other idea to replace gas as the fuel for home heating and cooking and maybe for transport as well, Hydrogen H2 is not a good idea also.
'Hydrogen in the home would be four times more dangerous than natural gas': government report
Using hydrogen in the home would be about four times more dangerous than natural gas, according to a safety assessment conducted on behalf of the UK government.
The report, produced by engineering consultant Arup for the Department for Business Energy & Industrial Strategy’s Hy4Heat programme, found that the annual predicted number of gas explosions in UK homes would more than quadruple if natural gas were to be replaced by hydrogen — rising from nine to 39.
This would include an average of 25.6 kitchen explosions per year, and 13.8 “whole downstairs explosions”, compared to 5.7 and 3.3 for natural gas, respectively.
At the same time, the predicted number of individuals injured from domestic explosions would rise from 17 to 65, says the study, entitled Safety Assessment: Conclusions Report (Incorporating Quantitative Risk Assessment.


There are also the problems of transporting gas around the country, because nobody knows if the present pipes can be used. And even if they can be there will need to either lay more pipes or replace the present ones with larger diameter ones.
All those new 'smart meters', that cost £11 billion (£420/installation) will have to be replaced again. (Will also need new 'smart meters' if 3 phase mains is to made available for heat pumps.)

IMHO This is all a plan for the energy suppliers and the government to steal your hard earned pennies.

Mexico to sue U.S.-based gunmakers over flow of arms across border.
MEXICO CITY — The Mexican government said Wednesday it plans to file legal action against several major U.S.-based gun manufacturers, alleging that lax controls contribute to the illegal flow of weapons over the border, according to documents obtained by The Washington Post.

The unusual suit is expected to be filed in U.S. federal court in Boston, since some of the manufacturers are headquartered in Massachusetts, according to the documents. The suit — which seeks unspecified financial compensation from the companies — does not target the U.S. government.

Mexican authorities believe U.S.-made weapons have fueled the explosive violence that has transformed parts of the country over the past decade. Around 2.5 million illicit American guns have poured across the border in that time period, according to a Mexican government study released last year. Legal gun sales in Mexico are tightly restricted.

he lawsuit maintains that the U.S. arms manufacturers “are conscious of the fact that their products are trafficked and used in illicit activities against the civilian population and authorities of Mexico,” according to a document from the Foreign Ministry.

Officialdom gone crazy. Anglers must pass police vetting, sit security test, have two negative Covid tests and pay for four security guards to fish at Admiralty Pier, Dover
Anglers have been told they can only fish on a pier they've used for over 100 years if they pass police vetting and sit a health and safety test.

The restrictions on Dover Sea Angling Association (DSAA) members have been set out by The Port of Dover which blames security threats for the change.
The long list of the hoops to jump through includes having two Covid-negative tests, paying for and providing four security guards, and not being allowed to take fishing knives or scissors - an important part of their tackle.
...
Using £180,000 of its own money, its members paid for repairs and later spent more money on toilets - an investment of £250,000 in total excluding rent.
As such they feel they are stakeholders and should be factored into any decisions about it.

My thoughts on the problem with meat is not that we eat meat, it is that we eat too much.
The British Army said when I was in that 5oz/day (140gm/day) was the ration when in barracks during peacetime.

So when you have that quarter pounder you should realise that you have just eaten nearly all your meat ration for the day. And if you had bacon at breakfast then you are already over the top and you haven't even got to your evening meal yet.

A Brain Drain Among Government Scientists Bogs Down Biden’s Climate Ambitions
WASHINGTON – Juliette Hart quit her job last summer as an oceanographer for the United States Geological Survey, where she used climate models to help coastal communities plan for rising seas. She was demoralized after four years of the Trump administration, she said, in which politician appointees pushed her to remove or downplay references to climate change.

“It’s easy and quick to leave government, not so fast for government to regain talent,” said Dr Hart, whose post remains vacant.

President Donald J. Trump’s battle with climate science – his appointees have undermined federal studies, fired scientists, and prompted many experts to resign or retire – continues to reverberate six months after the start of the season. ‘Biden administration. From the Department of Agriculture to the Pentagon to the National Park Service, hundreds of climate and environmental science jobs in the federal government remain vacant.

Scientists and climate policy experts who resigned have not returned. Recruitment is suffering, federal employees say, as government science jobs are no longer seen as isolated from politics. And congressional money to replenish the ranks could take years.

The result is that President Biden’s ambitious plans to deal with climate change are hampered by a brain drain.

On Jan 7, before the vaccines were widely available, and the 'delta' variant, Florida reported 19,334 cases.
By Saturday, July 31, after about 60% of Floridians have been vaccinated, the state reported 21,683 cases.

If Florida were a separate country, it would have been 9th in the listing for 'New Cases'.
Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has resisted mandatory mask mandates and vaccine requirements, and along with the state Legislature, has limited local officials’ ability to impose restrictions meant to stop the spread of COVID-19. DeSantis on Friday barred school districts from requiring students to wear masks when classes resume next month.

Might be ok for the flat lands in your part of the country for the cyclists. But here due to a Tour de France winner using our local hills as his training ground a few years ago, every cyclist from miles around thinks they should also try it.
They are just Darwinian, road kill as they go up hill, going from side to side at below walking pace, while fully loaded trucks transport limestone from the quarry at the top of the hill to the cement works in the bottom of the valley.

I have a memory that after losing a fight there is a longish period before they can fight again, and therefor there are two bronze medals awarded.

Another coronavirus variant has reached Florida. Here’s what you need to know.
A coronavirus variant discovered in Colombia is showing up among patients in South Florida, increasing infections and putting health officials on alert as calls grow louder for unvaccinated individuals to get inoculated.

Carlos Migoya, CEO of Jackson Health System, told WPLG in Miami earlier this week that the B.1.621 variant has accounted for about 10 percent of coronavirus patients, trailing behind delta, the now-dominant variant in the United States that has been ravaging the nation’s unvaccinated, and the gamma variant. B.1.621 has yet to receive a Greek-letter designation as more prominent variants have.

Migoya told the news station that he speculated B.1.621 is rising in South Florida because of international travel between Colombia and Miami, which serves as a gateway to Latin America.
A person who replied to an email sent from The Washington Post to Migoya’s office said he was unavailable to comment.

Health experts will keep B.1.621 on their radar as the fall season looms and as parts of the country still lag in their vaccination efforts, experts told The Post.

The earliest documented samples of B.1.621 were noted in January, and at least 16 cases have been recently reported in the United Kingdom, where health officials have noted that the majority of cases linked to the variant were the result of international travel.

Public Health England noted last week that there is currently no evidence to indicate that the variant causes more severe disease or evades the efficacy of vaccines. Yet the agency has designated the variant to be under investigation as it continues to conduct lab testing to better understand the impact mutations have on the coronavirus.

If you go the fast charging route then you will need a 3 phase supply to your home. And that is going to require a complete re-wiring of every street in the UK.
As noticed when we had a single phase failure here a few years ago, each phase was connected to a row of about 20 homes.

And if you are stuck with the lowest rate of charging, with the 6 hour limit of 'system 7' then it could take about 4 days to charge a fully discharged car.
What happens to the 30% of homes that do not have off-road facilities, will they have to go to the nearest public charging point in the middle of the night.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2021/07/28/blackout-warning-drivers-must-charge-electric-cars-off-peak/

And therefore if there is not enough electricity for transport where is the power coming from to replace the phasing out of gas heating etc.?

U.S. Declines to Defend Trump Ally in Lawsuit Over Jan. 6 Riot
The move could mean that the Justice Department is also unlikely to defend former President Donald J. Trump in the case.
WASHINGTON — The Justice Department declined on Tuesday to defend a congressional ally of former President Donald J. Trump in a lawsuit accusing them both of inciting supporters at a rally in the hours before the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol.

Law enforcement officials determined that Representative Mo Brooks, Republican of Alabama, was acting outside the scope of his duties in an incendiary speech just before the attack, according to a court filing. Mr. Brooks had asked the department to certify that he was acting as a government employee during the rally; had it agreed to defend him, he would have been dismissed from the lawsuit and the United States substituted as a defendant.

“The record indicates that Brooks’s appearance at the Jan. 6 rally was campaign activity, and it is no part of the business of the United States to pick sides among candidates in federal elections,” the Justice Department wrote.

“Members of Congress are subject to a host of restrictions that carefully distinguish between their official functions, on the one hand, and campaign functions, on the other.”

The Justice Department’s decision shows it is likely to also decline to provide legal protection for Mr. Trump in the lawsuit.

IMHO the anti-vaxxers are showing no respect for those that have to deal with the problems caused by Covid-19.
How many more lives of health care professionals will be put at risk because the anti-vaxxers won't take the sensible option.

And Dull from that list the only thing you could have done while doing my job or the job my youngest does is smoke cigs, and there was no time or place to do that at work or in company cars.

Meanwhile to continue the "no vax, no job" theme. Indiana University Vaccination Mandate Upheld By Court
July 21, 2021 -- A federal judge has ruled that Indiana University can require students and staff to be vaccinated against COVID-19 when they return to campus for the fall semester.
Judge Damon R. Leichty of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana said he weighed individual freedom against public health concerns in coming to his decision, The New York Times reported.
Eight students had sued the university and sought a preliminary injunction to block enforcement of the vaccine requirement.

And as that was a Federal judge one must assume it is a policy all colleges can enforce.
No vax, forget those high paying jobs you dreamed of.

P.S. The judge was a Trump appointee
P.P.S.
Football’s new rules

Meanwhile, the NFL amped up its efforts this week to persuade holdout players to get vaccinated. Under the new rules, a team could be forced to forfeit a game if there is a coronavirus outbreak linked to unvaccinated players. The move has both competitive and financial implications: Players won’t get paychecks for forfeited games, the NFL said.

Already happening. In Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Missouri and other 'red' states.
Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia are below the national average.

From WaPo;
Pointing to the nearly 10,000 new cases of the coronavirus in Alabama over the past two weeks, Ivey blamed the latest infections solely on the state’s unvaccinated population.
“Almost 100 percent of the new hospitalizations are with unvaccinated folks. And the deaths are certainly occurring with the unvaccinated folks,” she told reporters at an event for a tech company. “These folks are choosing a horrible lifestyle of self-inflicted pain.”

https://twitter.com/DavidBegnaud/status/1418409503578632195
Alabama’s Republican Governor @kayiveyforgov
has had enough with unvaccinated people in her state:
“It’s time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks. It’s the unvaccinated folks that are letting us down.”

Trump uses any money raised for himself and not the cause he said it was for.

https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/564387-trump-pac-has-not-used-any-of-the-75m-its-raised-this-year-to-help-fund
Trump PAC has not used any of the $75M its raised this year to help fund election audits: report

Former President Trump’s leadership PAC has not yet used any of the roughly $75 million raised to help finance election reviews, The Washington Post reported Thursday.
The PAC was formed after the 2020 election to help fund the Trump team's efforts to challenge results.
Yet people familiar with the PAC’s finances told the news outlet that the committee has held onto much of the money, while a portion has been used to pay for some of Trump’s expenses, including travel and legal costs, as well as staff pay.
The PAC, which will need to publicly disclose its fundraising and spending for the first half of the year by July 31, previously reported in Federal Election Commission filings earlier this year that it had collected nearly $31.2 million by the end of 2020.

The details shared by the sources, who spoke to the Post on the condition of anonymity to describe the group’s finances, come as Trump has continued to advance false claims of a stolen 2020 election, and has through his PAC sent out statements supporting election audits, including the ongoing one in Arizona’s Maricopa County.
“There was no victory here, or in any other of the Swing States either,” the former president wrote in one of the messages shared by the Save America PAC.

Of course they are down, 57% of the U.S. population over 12 have been fully vaccinated, or 49% of the total population if that's the way you like the numbers.

But just watch them go back up due to the Delta variant which is more deadly amongst all those that choose not to be vaccinated.

“I’m admitting young healthy people to the hospital with very serious COVID infections,” wrote Cobia, a hospitalist at Grandview Medical Center in Birmingham
“One of the last things they do before they’re intubated is beg me for the vaccine. I hold their hand and tell them that I’m sorry, but it’s too late.

My security blocked your link, but I found this https://foxbaltimore.com/news/coronavirus/alabama-doctor-tells-unvaccinated-covid-patients-begging-for-vaccine-its-too-late
And in it Dr. Cobia references made by fellow physician Dr. David B. Wilhelm, who works at Birmingham's Greystone Internal Medicine.
The transcript of Dr. Wilhelm states;
Delta variant Covid is now present in all 50 states, and Covid hospital admissions are up nationwide about 40%. Delta is more contagious and is attacking more aggressively in younger age groups compared to previous Covid strains.

I will repeat my statement from last week: If you haven't had Covid and are unvaccinated, there is a significant likelihood you'll get Delta variant Covid in the next 60-90 days.

If that offends any of you then so be it. There is no more time to sugar coat [sic] this.

Vaccines are readily available and are your best tool to fight this infection. Almost 99% of all Covid deaths are now in those who are not vaccinated.

Don't wait until it is too late.

So in the last few days we have had;
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) saying “These shots need to get in everybody’s arm as rapidly as possible, or we’re going to be back in a situation in the fall that we don’t yearn for, that we went through last year,” McConnell said during his weekly news conference. “I want to encourage everybody to do that and to ignore all of these other voices that are giving demonstrably bad advice.”

And Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, the No. 2 Republican in House leadership in an interview Tuesday, Scalise said “there shouldn’t be any hesitancy over whether or not it’s safe and effective.” He said he was compelled to get the shot in light of the recent spread of the delta variant and the associated spike in cases — and that politics was not a consideration.

And probably more importantly, “I can’t say it enough. Enough people have died. We don’t need any more death,” Sean Hannity, who previously called the virus a hoax, said Monday on his broadcast. “And it absolutely makes sense for many Americans to get vaccinated. I believe in science. I believe in the science of vaccination.”

Is it time for the anti-vaxers to change their minds.

All the while the UK has brought forward by a year the closure of the last coal fired power station to Oct 2024. So no subsidy there.

And without any feasible storage systems and our Northern location, which means solar isn't yet an economic solution, there has to be some other type of power stations other that wind. And nuclear probably isn't it, and biomass such as Drax probably fails the test as we have to import some of its fuel (in dirty oil fired ships)

Idea's?

P.S. I already run a Hybrid car, and guess what they ain't so wonderful after electric cars they don't work well in hilly country. In the hills the miles/kWh figure is probably half of the claimed by the manufacturers.

No idea, but have they been 'grandfathered in' and therefore could be late 50's or early 60's design and that there are better more reliable alternatives available.

In the world of certified aircraft, once a design is blessed, er certified, no one dares make a big improvement because obtaining a new certification will bankrupt the investors.

There have been a number of biz jets that have obviously depressurized and flown until they run out of fuel over the years. A shared bad part or part design?

But no doubt they would have no problem with introducing newer designs if it came with a significant weight and size reduction in the item.

FAA orders checks on 9,300 Boeing 737 planes for possible switch failures
WASHINGTON, July 15 (Reuters) - The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on Thursday issued a directive to operators of all Boeing Co (BA.N) 737 series airplanes to conduct inspections to address possible failures of cabin altitude pressure switches.
The directive requires operators to conduct repetitive tests of the switches and replace them if needed. The directive covers 2,502 U.S.-registered airplanes and 9,315 airplanes worldwide.
It was prompted after an operator reported in September that both pressure switches failed the on-wing functional test on three different 737 models.
The FAA said failure of the switches could result in the cabin altitude warning system not activating if the cabin altitude exceeds 10,000 feet (3,050 m), at which point oxygen levels could become dangerously low.
Boeing initially reviewed the issue, including the expected failure rate of the switches, and found it did not pose a safety issue.
Subsequent investigation and analysis led the FAA and Boeing to determine in May that "the failure rate of both switches is much higher than initially estimated, and therefore does pose a safety issue."

Some per capita numbers about blood clot deaths due to vaccines and covid deaths, https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-tyne-57848367
There is a known likely side-effect to the AstraZeneca vaccine that is very rare, known as vaccine-induced thrombosis and thrombocytopenia (VITT). That's a condition where clots form in combination with low platelet levels, and that is something that doesn't happen naturally. Therefore, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) thinks there is a strong likelihood that it is the vaccine causing this.
There have been almost 400 cases - most after the first dose - with 71 deaths, so it's about one death per 650,000 doses.

There is some suggestion there's a slightly higher risk in women than men but it's not absolutely clear, and slightly higher incidence in young people. That is why initially the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) said initially people under 30 should not have the AstraZeneca vaccine, which they changed to under 40 in May.
All medicines including vaccines have risks as well as benefits. For individuals and society, you have to set that against the risks you are trying to prevent, which is Covid.

With Covid there have been something like 1,900 deaths per one million people in the UK and Covid itself is known to be a serious cause of clots.

Something like one in five people hospitalised with Covid will end up with clots.

To equalise the UK numbers, that's about;

AstraZeneca vaccine - 3 deaths in 2 million
Unvaccinated - 3,800 deaths in 2 million.

The UK plan to ban gas boilers from 2035 has apparently been put on hold after the government was informed that the switch to heat pumps was not as easy as they thought.

Heat pumps cam be twice the cost of a gas boiler, and on present prices heat pumps cost on average £400/year more to run.
And where the installation is a replacement it can be £10k+ in many homes as it requires a complete new system installation, not counting the subsequent redecoration etc.

This could mean a carbon price tax on gas in the near future, in an attempt to equalise the costs.

edit] Again where are the extra electricity generation plants to power this green push?

How will the government recoup the loss of fuel tax?
Where are the power stations (any type) to provide the electricity needed?
And how are they going to charge HGV's and bus's that are on the road 16+ hrs/day?

The list of questions just keeps building up, where are the minerals and how will they be mined (very dirty process)?
Where are the re-cycling plants, and is it even possible?

Boeing slows 787 production to address forward pressure bulkhead manufacturing issue
Boeing is slowing 787 production in order to address a new manufacturing issue that the company says involves an issue with the jet’s forward pressure bulkhead.

The airframer has also slashed the number of Dreamliners it expects to deliver in 2021, now predicting it will hand over about half of the roughly 100 787s it holds in inventory.

Previously, Boeing told investors it would deliver the majority of those jets this year.

News of a new 787 manufacturing problem came to light on 12 July when the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said a “manufacturing quality issue near the nose” of some of Boeing’s undelivered 787s had been identified.

Signs that the courts are kicking back at Trumps lawyers for false election claims.
‘This is really fantastical’: Federal judge blasts pro-Trump attorneys, hints at sanctions

Also in MI. State Attorney General Dana Nessel (D) last week confirmed her office has opened a case exploring the activities of individuals who have been raising money by circulating false claims that the election results in Antrim County were manipulated, the Michigan State Police are involved in the case.

Last month Rudolph W. Giuliani was suspended from practicing in New York and then in P.C.

In Wisconsin, Gov. Tony Evers (D) has asked a federal judge to order Trump and three of his attorneys to pay the state’s attorneys’ fees in a case the former president filed in December unsuccessfully challenging President Biden’s win there.

And in Ga. District Attorney Fani Willis launched a criminal investigation which is still ongoing into Trump's call to State officials trying to persuade them to reverse the election.

In Arizona, Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (D) wrote a letter to Attorney General Mark Brnovich (R) last week, asking that his office open an investigation into whether Trump and allies — including Giuliani and Arizona GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward — might have violated a state law that makes it illegal to knowingly interfere with an election officer.

Meanwhile, a series of $1.3 billion defamation suits filed by Dominion Voting Systems against Giuliani, Powell and MyPillow chief executive Mike Lindell are moving through the civil courts in several States.

Sad. Very sad.

Is that a non-last-place only by 'default' because noone has heard of those last three names?

(Franklin Pierce, Andrew Johnson, James Buchanan.)


Stay safe folks!
Martin

Even I know that Pierce and Buchanan were the last two presidents before the civil war and their policies, if they did not inflame the situation, they did nothing to stop it happening.
And Johnson was Lincoln's VP and successor, and more famously he was impeached.

And there you have nearly all the facts that the academics use to say they were the worse three presidents.

Could this collapse of the Miami condo complex be another case of 'profits first'

Engineer reportedly warned in 2018 of ‘major damage’ at Miami condo complex
A consultant engineer warned three years before the deadly collapse of a South Florida condominium building that there was evidence of “major structural damage” to the concrete slab below the pool deck and abundant cracking and crumbling in the underground parking garage, the New York Times reported on Saturday.

From thr NYT; Images of concrete spall
At the ground level of the complex, vehicles can drive in next to a pool deck where residents would lounge in the sun. Mr. Morabito in 2018 said that the waterproofing below the pool deck and entrance drive was failing, “causing major structural damage to the concrete structural slab below these areas.”
The report added that “failure to replace the waterproofing in the near future will cause the extent of the concrete deterioration to expand exponentially.” The problem, he said, was that the waterproofing was laid on a concrete slab that was flat, not sloped in a way that would allow water to run off, an issue he called a “major error” in the original design. The replacement would be “extremely expensive,” he warned, and cause a major disturbance to residents.
In the parking garage, which largely sits at the bottom level of the building, part of it under the pool deck, Mr. Morabito said that there were signs of distress and fatigue.

Surely the quotes below are mutually exclusive.
A pedestrian bridge that likely was struck by at least one vehicle collapsed onto Interstate 295 in Washington, DC

DC Fire and EMS said in a tweet. "We don't have any structural concerns about the bridge. It was last inspected in February," Mayor Muriel Bowser said.


Or, maybe I am wrong and bridge designers, builders and inspectors, don't have to take into consideration the effects of a fully laden truck crashing into the bridge supports.

Almost 900 Secret Service employees were infected with COVID
WASHINGTON (AP) — Roughly 900 U.S. Secret Service employees tested positive for the coronavirus, according to government records obtained by a government watchdog group.

Secret Service records show that 881 people on the agency payroll were diagnosed with COVID-19 between March 1, 2020 and March 9, 2021, according to documents obtained by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics (CREW) in Washington. More than 11% of Secret Service employees were infected.
CREW noted that the Trump administration took actions that risked exposure to Secret Service workers, but it could not verify a direct connection to possible infections because the identities of those infected remains private.

After President Donald Trump contracted COVID-19, he took a drive in his presidential vehicle as Secret Service personnel drove and protected him. The former president also held multiple large rallies and events, including the announcement of Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court, despite restrictions on public gatherings.

True, but even among the ~5,000 deaths after vaccination it is still not clear if the vaccine was the cause in every case. And that's out of 310 million vaccinations.
That's a lot smaller percentage (0.0016% max possible) than the 616,417 deaths from Covid-19 out of a population of 333 million (0.185%), so far.

Well, it's official. As I have said previously, the UK is not in a position to go all electric by 2050 as the government decreed.
http://www.samfordcrimson.com/20210616-britain-faces-catastrophic-power-cuts-as-electricity-begins-to-run-everything-from-cars-to-boilers.html
Britain faces catastrophic power cuts because of an increasing reliance on electricity to run everything from cars to home boilers, the Committee on Climate Change has warned.

Decarbonisation plans, which involve switching transport and heating away from petrol and gas, will mean outages in the future have a greater impact, the Government’s independent advisory committee on climate change has said, as it urged the Government to make sure the system could withstand extreme weather.

Incidents such as floods and storms, potentially made more intense by climate change, could leave thousands without power unless the Government prioritises adaptation, something it has so far failed to do, the committee said.

Electricity currently provides 15 to 20 per cent of the UK’s energy, but by 2050 this could rise to 65 per cent, a trend mostly driven by a switch from petrol and diesel-fuelled transport to electric power, and from gas boilers to electric alternatives such as heat pumps.

By the way, what would a house like that sell for? Depending on location here in the US I would expect anything from a few hundred thousand in some of the flyover states to well over $25 million in Montecito or San Francisco.

Local gossip says they are looking north of £5 million ($7 million). Originally built in 11th century, King Henry VI was in hiding there in 1464 . If it was near London it would be many times that price.

That doesn't work either. The Worldometer site allows you to sort by 'per capita' but if you do that most of the top twenty countries are places with very small populations. Like Monaco and Andora, with only a few of countries with populations over 10 million in the top twenty, but for cases the U.S. is in 14th place. India with its huge population, and probably inaccurate numbers, is at about 100th place in both lists.

What is probably more important for those that travel or want to restrict visitor for high rick countries is the "Trends" listings, but again these have to be taken with a bucket of salt handy as some countries numbers are not believable. And the numbers from countries you can trust are probably not gathered with the same standards.
i.e. some countries report all deaths where Covid appears on the death certificate and other only say it is a Covid death when it is the number one cause. This also occurs in the U.S. as not all states agree to the same standard.

Latest from the BBC tends to confirm what you posted. Covid: Unvaccinated most at risk from Delta variant
Nearly two-thirds of people infected with the Delta variant, and more than half of those who have died with it, have not had a Covid vaccine at all, the latest official data suggests.
There have been nearly 30,000 new UK cases of the variant in the past week. The Public Health England report says it is likely to spread more easily and could make people more seriously ill. Officials say two doses of the vaccine provide "significantly more protection" than one.
The Delta variant, which was first identified in India, is now the dominant variant in the UK - accounting for 90% of cases. It is being closely monitored by PHE, who are using new genotyping tests to detect the variant more quickly as cases continue to rise.

These suggest that the Delta variant is roughly 60% more spreadable than the Alpha, or Kent, variant.

Analysis of hospitalisation rates suggests people infected by the Delta variant are twice as likely to end up in hospital than those with Alpha.

... The 737 MAX's latest problem stemmed from a trivial change to the manufacturing process for "two cabinets or racks that hold electronic equipment on the MAX flight deck," ... A decision to apply primer after holes were fully drilled -- rather than before -- impeded the racks' ability to serve as an electrical grounding path...

WHAT.
trivial!!!!
There are lots of Boeing people that do NOT understand grounding paths if they think it is trivial.

There is nothing wrong in painting the holes after drilling, because, you should NEVER rely on that path to ground. Electronic cabinet racks are frequently mounted on anti-vibration mounts especially when in machines that vibrate. They are made with a big block of rubber, never known to be a conductor of electricity.

Covid: Greater Manchester and Lancashire to get extra help

Why wasn't this done a week earlier, the numbers were there.

And maybe that's the problem. Politicians that haven't got any other experience except that of being a politician since school days, do not understand numbers. Probably got into Oxford PPE course, on a grade inflated, Maths 'C' pass at GCSE level.

With the time it takes to do major infrastructure changes the the time between now and when Boris has said we will all go electric is not long.

In fact it is very short.

Give me a time frame for when every street in the country where there is no off-road parking and outside multistory dwellings, for the electricity distribution companies to install two charge points for every ten houses.

Bargain hunters pounce as Trump condo prices hit decade lows
NEW YORK (AP) — The building has stunning Manhattan skyline views, its spa offers deep-tissue massages, and the fancy restaurant off the lobby serves up prime steaks. Best of all, many apartments at the Trump World Tower are selling at a deep discount — assuming the buyer doesn’t mind the name over the door.

“Fifty percent of the people wouldn’t want to live in a Trump building for any reason ... but then there are guys like me,” says Lou Sollecito, a car dealer who recently bought a two-bedroom unit with views of the Empire State Building. “It’s a super buy.”

The purchase price was $3 million, nearly a million less than the seller paid in 2008.

Bargain hunters are swooping in to take advantage of prices in Trump buildings that have dropped to levels not seen in over a decade, a crash brokers attribute to a combination of the former president’s polarizing image and the coronavirus pandemic. It’s a stunning reversal for a brand that once lured the rich and famous willing to pay a premium to live in a building with Trump’s gilded name on it.

An Associated Press review of more than 4,000 transactions over the past 15 years in 11 Trump-branded buildings in Chicago, Honolulu, Las Vegas and New York found prices for some condos and hotel rooms available for purchase have dropped by one-third or more.

That paragraph probably foretells the biggest story, is the UK and most other countries anywhere near working out the solutions for the extra electricity generation and distribution needed.

Abortion: Texas teen attacks new law in high school graduation speech
When Paxton Smith got up to deliver her high school graduation speech, it was supposed to be about TV and the media.

But the teenager ditched the script that had been approved by her school, and spoke about abortions instead.

In her home state of Texas, a law banning abortion from as early as six weeks has recently been signed.

"I cannot give up this platform to promote complacency and peace when there is a war on my body," Paxton said in the speech that's since gone viral.

The Hill - Facebook to end policy shielding politicians from content moderation rules
Facebook is slated to announced that the social media platform will end a policy that largely shielded politicians from repercussions when they violated the site's hate speech rules, a person familiar with the decision told The Washington Post.

Facebook could announce the change as soon as Friday, according to The Verge, the first outlet to report the news.

The company will no longer value the newsworthiness of a post over its hate speech guidelines. When it does keep a post up due to its newsworthiness, the company will make the decision public, according to the Post.

The move comes after the Oversight Board said the “same rules should apply to all users” after deciding that former President Trump should remain suspended from the platform for violating its content moderation guidelines.

Boeing to pay $17 million to settle plane production issues
AP - Federal officials say Boeing will pay at least $17 million and take steps to fix production problems on its 737 jets, including the Max.

The Federal Aviation Administration said Thursday that the settlement covers the installation of unapproved sensors and other parts on some Boeing 737 NG and 737 Max planes built between 2015 and 2019.

The settlement, while not a large sum for Boeing — the company had $15 billion in revenue in 2020, a down year — is the latest black eye for the iconic American manufacturer. Boeing is still struggling to recover from two deadly crashes that led to a long grounding of Max jets worldwide and other problems that have plagued the Max and other aircraft models.

The FAA said Boeing will pay the $17 million civil penalty within 30 days and could be hit with about $10 million in additional fines if it fails to take steps including preventing the use of unapproved parts. The FAA said Boeing also must analyze whether the company and its suppliers are ready to safely raise production rates for the 737.

The federal government plans to open more than 250,000 acres off the California coast to wind development, the Biden administration announced Tuesday, as part of a major effort to ramp up the nation’s renewable energy and cut its climate-warming emissions.

Under the plan, the administration would allow wind power projects to be built in federal waters off the coast of Central California northwest of Morro Bay, as well as at a second location west of Humboldt Bay. Officials estimate that the two areas combined could generate 4,600 megawatts of electricity — enough to power 1.6 million homes.

Did you also notice that India claimed the title of the most daily deaths recorded from the U.S.? :-O

Sadly, yes.
But given the population of India is three or four times that of the USA it's a sad indictment of the USA :-(

Is it a sad indictment of the USA, or an indication that the Indian counts are far below the expected level.
The per capita number of deaths in the US and a lot of countries, including most of Europe, is somewhere between one and two thousand per million. And where the spread in part can be because each country uses different criteria to judge whether a death is covid related.
The U.S.A is not at the top of that list, but it could be higher or lower if a Federal standard were used, because each State has its own definition

The Indian per capita number is only about 200 per million, probably about a tenth of the expected number.

If the Indian numbers are correct then India shouldn't be the focus of attention as other countries have higher weekly trends, mainly in South America.

Weekly trends can be seen at the worldometers covid site.

BBC - New York prosecutor says Trump inquiry now 'criminal'
The New York attorney general's office says it is investigating the Trump Organization "in a criminal capacity".

A spokesman for the state's top prosecutor, Letitia James, said the inquiry into Mr Trump's property company was "no longer purely civil".

Ms James has been scrutinising the ex-Republican president's financial dealings before he took office.

The Trumps deny wrongdoing and say the inquiry by a Democratic prosecutor is a political vendetta.

Ms James' spokesman, Fabien Levy, told the BBC on Tuesday: "We have informed the Trump Organization that our investigation into the Organization is no longer purely civil in nature.

"We are now actively investigating the Trump Organization in a criminal capacity, along with the Manhattan DA. We have no additional comment."

The statement did not say what turned the inquiry from civil to criminal in nature, or whether the former president himself might be personally implicated in any allegations.

How US police training compares with the rest of the world
How many people are killed by police?



How long does police training take?



What type of training do police get?
US police academies spend far more time on firearms training than on de-escalating a situation - 71 hours against 21, on average, according to a 2013 US Bureau of Justice Statistics report.

Many other countries require officers to have a university degree - or equivalent - before joining the police, but in the US most forces just require the equivalent of a high-school diploma.

Biden's tax return shows steep fall in income
Joe Biden has brought back a US presidential tradition by releasing his tax return, the White House said.

The filing shows he and his wife earned $607,336 (£430,000) last year and paid $157,414 in federal income tax.

Their income fell from 2019 when they earned $985,223 mostly from speeches, book sales and positions at higher education institutions.

Donald Trump refused to release his tax returns, the first president not to do so since the Watergate era.

Mr Trump claimed he was not able to do so as he was being audited by the Internal Revenue Service, the US government's tax-collection agency.

Ahead of the tax filing's release on Monday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said: "I would expect that we will continue to release the president's tax returns, as should be expected by every president of the United States."

JCB unveils hydrogen-fuelled combustion engine technology
Heavy machinery maker JCB has announced a hydrogen-fuelled piston engine that emits no CO2 and which it believes can help the transport industry achieve the UK government’s zero-emissions target quicker than any existing solutions.

JCB claims its research shows that the new engine – based on the hardware of JCB’s Dieselmax 448 four-cylinder engine but with substantial modifications at the top end – not only produces no CO2 but also offers important advantages over battery-electric and hydrogen fuel cell solutions, both of which are considerably more expensive.

JCB’s hydrogen engine is naturally aimed at its own off-highway applications but, after successful initial trials in excavators (which put far greater demands on engines than cars and trucks), the company’s engineers believe they have a technology that can be successfully applied in a much wider range of vehicles.

British silversmiths struggling to sell in EU after Brexit deal failed to recognise UK's hallmarks
Sir John Hayes says it is 'preposterous' that centuries-old hallmarks are not recognised by the European Union
British silversmiths are being frustrated over trying to sell silver and gold into the European Union after the Brexit trade deal failed to recognise the UK’s centuries-old hallmarks.

The UK has one of the most rigorous systems of quality validation in the world, requiring a Maker’s mark, year, and an Assay Office mark on every item.

However, hallmarking was overlooked in the Brexit trade deal which has meant that UK silversmiths are finding it difficult to export British silver and gold into the EU. The problems also affect jewellry.

This is despite British silversmiths still adhering to the identical international ISO and BSO standards that the EU recognised until the end of December last year.

Sir John Hayes, chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Craft, called for the 1973 Hallmarking Act to be amended to protect UK producers.

He said it was “preposterous” that UK hallmarks should not be recognised by the European Union.

He said: “We need to challenge the basis for EU non-recognition of British marks – one of the highest quality British standards in the world.

“This is a centuries-old tradition. There is no concession required from the EU. It can only be an oversight or awkwardness. This is an important industry for Britain.”

The hallmark allows each piece of silver to be traceable back to a single workbench, in the same way that meat can be traced back to a particular herd on a farm.

The current legal operating standard for “Sterling” silver has not changed since 1275 and hallmarking has been required by law in this country since 1320.

UK goods can be recognised if makers pay for an additional “Convention Mark”, or “Common Control Mark” which was first set out in the 1972 Vienna Hallmarking Convention.

However, only 16 EU countries are signatories, and major UK markets including France, Spain, Belgium and Italy are not covered.

The Government said the problems did not affect any silver or gold on the market before Jan 1 this year. Any new stock entering the GB market will require a UK hallmark or Common Control Mark while any new stock exported to EU members will require a mark recognised by those countries.

A spokesperson said: “While the UK secured a number of sector-specific annexes as part of the Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) offer, it was not possible to reach agreement with the EU on the UK’s proposal for a Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) on conformity assessment. The UK Government’s focus is on implementing the deal helping prepare businesses for upcoming opportunities."

U.S. requires inspections for wire failure on Boeing 737 Classic planes
Reuters - The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said on Friday it was requiring U.S. operators of 143 Boeing Co (BA.N) 737 Classic series airplanes to check for possible wire failures stemming from an investigation into an Indonesia crash in January.

The 737 Classic is an older generation of planes more than two decades old. The FAA said the issue affected 1,041 737-300, -400 and -500 Classic series airplanes worldwide, but many are currently out of service, because of COVID-19 or other issues.

The FAA is issuing an airworthiness directive for operators to verify that the flap synchro wire, which plays a role in the operation of the aircraft’s auto-throttle system, is securely connected to a safety sensor.

The wire failure could go undetected by the auto-throttle computer on affected airplanes and pose a safety risk.

The FAA is requiring some speedier checks than had been suggested by Boeing, which said late on Friday that it was "engaged in ongoing efforts to introduce safety and performance improvements across the fleet."

The newer 737 MAX and 737 NG are unaffected by the directive.

‘We need to get people off the bridge immediately’: Hear the 911 call that brought traffic to a halt
Inspectors were conducting the first day of inspection of the Hernando de Soto Bridge when they spotted a crack in one of the beams that help keep that bridge standing.

The structural crack, as engineers call it, could have caused a disaster had it not been caught.

The beam helps to hold the span of the bridge together as 41,000 cars and trucks ride over the Hernando de Soto Bridge every day.



The Hernando de Soto Bridge is outside Memphis, crossing the Mississippi River and straddles the Tennessee-Arkansas line.

Can you armor your fiber so a idiot backhoe can't take it out? All important factors.


When some years ago, in a remote part of the globe and I was living next to the Airport, the main job of the airport was servicing the offshore oil rigs. The airport was having a new helicopter terminal built. It was to be situated North of the cables that connected the control tower to the radar site. So the airport staff marked out the route of the cables and about every 20 meters put up a sign saying "Do not dig here".

On the day the work started the backhoe operator turned up first and you know what happened.

He didn't read the notices and thought the markers were where he had to dig the first trench.

Just how many of those problems are the result the previous administration failing to do their jobs?

Trump didn't believe it was Russian hackers, he blamed Ukraine. And also put very little money or competent leaders into the agencies that deal with hacking.

The pipeline problem is the same as above.

Trump and his son-in-law haven't got a clue about the middle east and therefore all their efforts were put into the easy solutions. Or made the completely wrong decision to move the Embassy.

And now after a few months you expect Joe to have a solution to all the problems that were not fixed in the previous four years.

That's the whole point of the lights- if it's green you can go. If it's red then you don't.

If it is like the junction near my eldest son, the lights for the truck only get a cancellation of the turn right green. Meaning he has to follow the normal rules for turning across traffic, and as they haven't started moving then he might think wrongly he can continue his move.

At the junction near my sons, if you are in the cars position you frequently have to either jump a few meters forward or creep forward to signify to those turning right that you now have a green.
It's made worse by the lights having movement detection, and therefore if the car doesn't move quickly enough then the lights think there is no traffic there and go through to the next phase of operation.

Two more cases of over reaction by police.
Prosecutor says Black driver who was handcuffed, arrested should not have been stopped
A Black employee with the Department of Defense who was pulled over, handcuffed and arrested on charges of reckless driving, resisting arrest and eluding police should never have been stopped in the first place, a Virginia commonwealth's attorney says.

The Washington Post reported Monday that Fairfax Commonwealth’s Attorney Steve Descano dismissed all counts previously faced by Juanisha Brooks after she was pulled over by a Virginia State Police officer in early March.

During the incident, dashcam footage showed Trooper Robert Hindenlang refusing to tell Brooks why he initially pulled her over, apparently for a broken taillight, before eventually dragging her out of the vehicle and demanding she take a field sobriety test after she admitted to having one alcoholic beverage.

Two women rented a U Haul for a move Then the LAPD swarmed
Shibani Balsaver parked the rented U-Haul in front of her new Hollywood apartment. It was moving day in February of 2020, and Balsaver was preparing to unload all of her belongings into her first solo apartment. She and a friend, Sheilanee Sen, would be done in a couple of hours, if everything went smoothly. Moments later, a swarm of police officers ordered the two women to exit the truck and lay on their stomachs in the middle of the street while officers searched the rental truck, according to court records.

Oregon has traced other coronavirus outbreaks to churches. Last June, at least 236 members of a Pentecostal church in eastern Oregon tested positive for the virus. Last month, the state’s Occupational Safety and Health agency received a complaint on an Apostolic church that allegedly failed to enforce masks and social distancing during services; at least 14 parishioners were infected, the Albany Democrat-Herald reported.


quotes from WP "An Oregon church sued over covid-19 restrictions. Now, an outbreak there has sickened 74."

BBC - Alcohol deaths highest for 20 years in England and Wales
Alcohol killed more people in 2020 in England and Wales than in any of the previous 20 years, official data shows.

There were 7,423 deaths from alcohol misuse last year - a rise of 20% from 2019, the Office for National Statistics says.

Deaths increased from March 2020 onwards when the UK's coronavirus epidemic forced the first national lockdown.

Most deaths were related to long-term drinking problems and dependency.

Report of high number of menstrual health problems in women tear gassed in Portland, Oregen.
https://bmcpublichealth.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12889-021-10859-w

Original news story was, NYT - Hundreds Reported Abnormal Menstruation After Exposure to Tear Gas, Study Finds
Dr. Torgrimson-Ojerio decided she would try to figure out whether these anecdotes were outliers or representative of a more common phenomenon. She surveyed around 2,200 adults who said they had been exposed to tear gas in Portland last summer. In a study published this week in the journal BMC Public Health, she reported that 899 of them — more than 54 percent of the respondents who potentially menstruate — said they had experienced abnormal menstrual cycles.
...
Suspicions about tear gas and menstruation first came up more than a decade ago, during the Arab Spring protests, Dr. Jordt noted.

In 2011, Chile also banned the use of tear gas after a study suggested that CS gas could cause miscarriages and harm young children. Three days later, the Chilean police lifted the ban, insisting that the type of tear gas they used was perfectly safe.

Good luck with that. My fridge door seal has split, and assuming the freezer door will not be far behind, I tried to source replacements. No luck with any UK supplier, but did find them listed in an EU country.
The price quoted with delivery, tax etc. was greater than a cheap replacement fridge/freezer, but not right size.

Now trying to find a replacement in stock that fits the height/width dimensions and with preferred split. Not having much luck even though most manufacturers have one listed.

But by all means, also implant chips in your brain people, so you don't have to think for yourselves any longer. Is this kind of crap the direction to where this world is heading?

Good news on disease that kills 400,000 people each year.

Malaria vaccine from Oxford covid-19 team is most effective ever made
A malaria vaccine shown to be 77 per cent effective in trials – the highest level ever achieved – offers hope of controlling a disease that kills an estimated 400,000 people each year, many of them children.

Adrian Hill at the University of Oxford and his colleagues hope it can be approved for use within the next two years, building on the speed and lessons learned through the rapid development of covid-19 vaccines – the researchers also work on the Oxford/AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine.

“With the commitment by our commercial partner, the Serum Institute of India, to manufacture at least 200 million doses annually in the coming years, the vaccine has the potential to have a major public health impact if licensure is achieved,” he told the PA news agency.

Hill hopes the vaccine will be swiftly approved following final trial results, which he expects the team to report next year.

“Malaria killed at least four times as many more people in Africa last year as covid did,” he said. “Nobody for a moment questioned whether covid should have an emergency use review and authorisation in Africa – of course it did, very quickly. So why shouldn’t a disease that firstly kills children rather than older people, certainly killed an awful lot more, be prioritised for emergency use authorisation in Africa?”

The Turkish trial was only carried out on a very small number of people, in the tens, no more.

A real-world study of millions of Chileans finds CoronaVac vaccine has found it 67% effective against symptoms after both shots.

The Brazil 50.4% numbers come from Sao Paulo in a trial of 13,000 people.

For the moment I will go with the low efficiency numbers and say with that few people tested , that wasn't a trial in Turkey.

The defence budget is more important than any NSF funded project.

Only that part of the defence budget that is essential, and when considering the U.S.the non-essential costs in Iraq and Afghanistan were north of $4.4 Trillion.

Plus the Defence Department should also be funding scientific research, which in many cases can also have civilian uses.

There are reports that the Sinovac vaccine, that is most common in use in Chile, is only just over 50% effective.
It will be interesting to see if this had some effect on the problem now facing Chile.

A report in the Telegraph says that the chances of getting blood clots (cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT)) from Covd-19 is eight times likely that getting them from a vaccination.

I gather from what is said that some deaths from Covid-19 are due to blood clots in the brain and these are of a much greater than deaths that might be due to those caused by the vaccines.

Other things I noted in news reports;

The pistols have a trigger safety and the tazers do not.

Brooklyn Center Police Department protocol dictates that officers wear their guns on their dominant side and Tasers on the opposite side of their bodies, to reduce the risk that they will confuse the two weapons. But this doesn't stop them having the tazers in a cross draw position so they can be used with the dominant hand.

“all Taser devices shall be clearly and distinctly marked to differentiate them from the duty weapon and any other device.”

The device should not be used against people “whose position or activity may result in collateral injury” — including people who are “operating vehicles.” Mr. Wright was sitting in the driver’s seat and his car traveled several blocks after he was shot.

IMO it all points to a lack of training.

Covid-19: US agencies call for pause in Johnson & Johnson vaccine
US health authorities are calling for a pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine, after reports of extremely rare blood clotting cases.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said it was acting "out of an abundance of caution".

It said six cases of severe blood clotting had been detected in more than 6.8 million doses of the vaccine.

The recommendation follows similar rare cases in the AstraZeneca vaccine, which has prompted some curbs in its use.

In a series of tweets, the FDA said it and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) were reviewing "six reported US cases of a rare & severe type of blood clot in individuals after receiving the vaccine. Right now, these adverse events appear to be extremely rare".

"We are recommending a pause in the use of this vaccine out of an abundance of caution," it said.

Boeing Co. grounded dozens of 737 Max jets to repair an electrical flaw that emerged in recently delivered models, forcing airlines to cancel flights and line up replacement aircraft.

U.S. carriers including Southwest Airlines Co., American Airlines Group Inc. and United Airlines Holdings Inc. parked a combined 67 of the workhorse planes Friday, about a third of the Max jets in service worldwide. The manufacturing glitch affects a subset of aircraft at 16 airlines, not the entire Max fleet, Boeing said in a statement

The UK has chosen to extend to the max the gap between the 1st and 2nd jabs. This gives the max possible number of people that have some protection, and it looks like it is working so far, as new cases are down to ~3,000/day from 60,000/day in early Jan and below 50 deaths/day from 1,200+/day in late Jan. (7 day averages)


can you quantify how much of the reduction was due solely to vaccination and not just from immunity gained from prior infection?

the numbers were already in freefall right when vaccination started, and continued to fall well before the effects of the "first jab" vaccination could be seen. if you believe the herd immunity myth from first jabs, you'd only JUST start seeing some traction recently, but it's been diving naturally for quite some time now. the UKs numbers peaked around Jan 9th, and at that time only 3% of the population had received the at least the first dose, not enough to account for the sudden drop in cases.

We have had a controlled tiered lock-down that started on 2nd Dec 2020 and
– December 19: The Prime Minister cancels Christmas for almost 18 million people across London and eastern and south-east England by moving them into a newly created Tier 4 for two weeks – effectively returning to the lockdown rules of November – after scientists warn of the rapid spread of the new variant VUI 202012/01.

The lock-downs were only started to be eased at the end of March, but still no pubs etc open or foreign holidays allowed .
15 February - British and Irish citizens arriving in the UK after 4.00am are required to quarantine at a government designated hotel for ten days

Also because we have have a good Covid sequencing organisation it has done about 50% of all sequencing in the world, the Brazil and SA variants have been detected early and effectively stopped.

So it isn't just down to vaccinations, lock-downs and quarantines have also aided the decreases.

my only argument was against the comment that "only 1 country" could do wrong. if even ONE other country is handling things poorly, the whole argument is false. certainly more than the one country he doesn't like is having leadership/management issues regarding the pandemic. and such a comment shows clear bias. this whole thread has basically devolved into a "US bad, everyone else good" echo chamber with key players just feeding off each other LOL.

And that is a comment that doesn't match reality as we have an idiot called Boris over here, that we have criticized frequently.

Billionaires added about $8 trillion to their total net worth from last year.
The number of newly minted and reissued billionaires soared last year, Forbes reported Tuesday in its annual ranking, a staggering accumulation of individual wealth that stands in sharp contrast to the widespread economic struggles unleashed by the coronavirus pandemic.

The number of billionaires on Forbes’ 35th annual ranking swelled by 660 to 2,755 — a roughly 30 percent jump from a year ago — and 493 of them are first timers. And a staggering 7 of 8 of them are richer than they were before the pandemic. Forbes calculates net worth by using stock prices and exchange rates from March 5.

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, with an estimated fortune of $177 billion, topped the list for the fourth year running. Tesla chief executive Elon Musk came in at No. 2 at $151 billion. The shares of both companies soared last year, largely contributing to both men’s net worth and causing them to toggle for the richest man title on various lists.

As a class, billionaires added about $8 trillion to their total net worth from last year, totaling $13.1 trillion. The United States had the most billionaires, at 724, extending a rapid rise in wealth that hasn’t happened since the Rockefellers and the Carnegies roughly a century ago. China, including Hong Kong and Macao, had the second highest number of billionaires: 698.

Follow up, AstraZeneca: Is there a blood clot risk?
UK has been working down the age range, over 60's have been vaccinated, the 50 - 59 age group is the group now being jabbed.
Germany initially refused to use the vaccine in the over 65s because of a lack of trial data. However, CVSTs are inherently more common in younger women and taking the pill increases the risk.

Canada is at 0.0/100,000
and the UK is at 0.045/100,000 all men (Daily Mail)

Gallup - Religiosity Largely Unaffected by Events of 2020 in U.S
The proportion of Americans who consider themselves members of a church, synagogue or mosque has dropped below 50 percent, for the first time since 1937. And it looks like it is set to fall further as religious membership is strongly correlated with age:
66 percent of American adults born before 1946 belong to a church,
compared with 58 percent of baby boomers,
50 percent of Generation X
and 36 percent of millennials.

* All-new F-150 Police Responder now offers enhanced top speed of 120 mph...
* New automatic four-wheel-drive mode and torque-on-demand transfer case constantly adjusts torque to front and rear wheels as needed to improve performance and handling on dry pavement, while increasing traction on wet, slick and less stable surfaces for a [b]more seamless transition between on- and off-road driving[b].

Is this:

  • Starsky and Hutch?
  • Dukes of Hazzard??
  • Blues Brothers?
  • Or just USA Downtown?



Here in the UK, we went over to using helicopters to avoid risking police officers and innocent bystanders alike from silly TV-esq car chases.


You forget 9 out of 10 chases involve gun play over here.

I don't know that applies if they were given a little makeover.

EU's 'most embarrassing' day: How the story behind the vaccine factory raid unravelled
Italian elite unit found millions of AstraZeneca doses thought to be meant for the UK - but their destination was the EU itself
It was an extraordinary story – the European Commission had turned detective to find AstraZeneca's secret stockpile of vaccines reserved for Britain.

During a surprise raid over the weekend, an elite unit of Italian military police acting on EU orders discovered 29 million jab doses hoarded at a factory near Rome.

The discovery appeared to confirm the EU's long-held suspicion that AstraZeneca was giving the UK special treatment, secretly exporting doses to its home country while failing to deliver on contracts agreed with Brussels.

Yet, as EU officials admitted on Wednesday, the allegation, briefed to the Continental press, simply wasn't true.

In fact, most of the doses discovered in the Italian factory were destined for the EU itself, with the remainder headed for poorer countries across the world.

One former Europe minister called it possibly the "most embarrassing day in the EU's history".

Trump Dumped: Luxury Travel Agency Quietly Drops Former President’s Hotels
Without announcement, Virtuoso Travel no longer carries Trump-branded accommodations.

A major booking agency catering to the luxury travel market has dropped all Trump-branded hotels and resorts from its elite services.

Virtuoso Travel didn’t publicly announce its change in policy, which affects all 10 hotels and resorts operated by the former U.S. president’s company. The change occurred the week of March 8.

“As of March 8, 2021, Trump Hotels are no longer part of the Virtuoso network,” said Misty Ewing Belles, managing director of global public relations for the agency. Belles did not comment on why the decision was reached.

Trump hotels were still listed on the Virtuoso website on March 9, but have since been removed.

“Virtuoso considers many variables when reviewing both existing and new network participation. Out of respect for all involved parties, and as a general policy, we do not share comments regarding our non-renewal and exit decisions,” Belles said.

The decision came 60 days after Americans watched a mob of rioters attack the U.S. Capitol in Washington, with some of them saying Trump inspired them.

My understanding is that they are supposed to request refugee status at the border or point of entry, not just illegally force their way into this country and then get around to asking.

There I agree with you, but if they even enter at a port of entry, they are treated as illegals and some have taken to court and found guilty of illegally crossing, which then makes it illegal for them to apply. That was all Trumps doing.

No, just straight forward economics based on the the model used by the U.S. and most western nations to pay for the benefits system. And it requires an continuous increase in population to pay for it, and at the moment and some years now the birth rate has fallen below the 2.1 needed to maintain status quo to about 1.7 kids/family, in the U.S. and Europe.

Immigrants are required if you want the system to pay the $70,000 needed for the medical bill for your last year of your life.

The real border problem

Too true.
With a shortage of babies, in about 15 years there will be a shortage of workers and that means a shortage of taxes. And with a shortage of taxes there will be pressure to decrease the benefits for pensioners.
So all those who will be pensioners in 15 years time do you want reduced pensions and health care or allow an increase in immigrants, preferably legal immigrants, but to do that will mean an increase in the number of visa', overturning the decreases ordered by the last President.

Early Adopter U.A.E. Starts Giving Third Dose of Sinopharm Vaccine Amid Efficacy Concerns
Doctors say in some cases, Chinese shot isn’t generating adequate antibody response

DUBAI—Health authorities in the United Arab Emirates have begun administering a third dose of the Sinopharm coronavirus vaccine to at least some residents, as doctors say the Chinese-made shots in some cases haven’t generated enough protective antibodies.

The U.A.E. has served as one of the primary testing grounds for the vaccine, which is manufactured by a Chinese state-owned pharmaceutical company and is a mainstay of the Gulf monarchy’s rapid immunization campaign. The vaccine is also used in Hungary, Serbia, Pakistan and elsewhere.

G42 Healthcare, the company that coordinated Sinopharm’s Phase 3 clinical trials in the U.A.E. and elsewhere in the Middle East said a “select group of people are being administered a third shot to observe the immune system response” as part of a scientific study.

It declined to say how many people are affected and why, referring reporters to the U.A.E. health authorities, who didn’t respond to multiple requests for comment.

Probably not, companies like Croda, which produces essential ingredients for vaccines, are having to find ways of increasing production just to meet the present day requirements.
There are also production limits for vials and suitable syringes.

* define quickly

edit] If European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen imposes an export ban on vaccines to the UK, Boris could easily respond by banning the export of the Croda ingredients to the EU. Although he has said he will not, as that would harm too many innocent people.

How Russia glosses over its Covid death toll
A year into the pandemic, the virus this team are battling is familiar, but their careful daily routine is a reminder of the risk - it was last autumn that Covid-19 struck hardest in Perm, on its sweep from Moscow across the regions, and the number of sick and dead shot up.

But there is very little talk in Russia of the death toll from Covid. The full data revealed by excess mortality is not secret, but it's never highlighted, and the preliminary tally published each day by the government significantly underplays the impact.

Donald Trump's wealth takes tumble during presidency
Donald Trump's net worth dropped by about $700m to $2.3bn (£1.65bn) during his time as president, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

The Covid-19 pandemic hit his fortunes hard, with Mr Trump's office buildings, branded hotels and resorts losing revenue and falling in value.

His fleet of planes and golf courses have also seen drops in their value.

Mr Trump is currently under a criminal investigation into his financial affairs and his family business.

Climate change: Jet fuel from waste 'dramatically lowers' emissions
A new approach to making jet fuel from food waste has the potential to massively reduce carbon emissions from flying, scientists say.

Currently, most of the food scraps that are used for energy around the world are converted into methane gas.

But researchers in the US have found a way of turning this waste into a type of paraffin that works in jet engines.

The authors of the new study say the fuel cuts greenhouse gas emissions by 165% compared to fossil energy.

This figure comes from the reduction in carbon emitted from airplanes plus the emissions that are avoided when food waste is diverted from landfill.

Globally up to 60% of blood clots occur within 90 days of hospital discharge
More people die from blood clots each year than the total number of people who lose their lives annually due to AIDS, breast cancer, and motor vehicle crashes combined.

Jesus-----terrorist?
WTF???

He, and some of his followers, attended a training camp run by John the Baptist, who was executed for his crimes, in AD 28 or 29.
He hung out with known terrorists like Simon the Zealot. The Zealots would later go on to stab Romans and Roman sympathisers.
He vandalised the Temple and smashed up traders tables. John 2:13 onwards
He said the Temple would soon be destroyed. Mark 13:2
He said, “I did not come to bring peace, but a sword” (Matthew 10:34)

And if alive today would not get permission to enter the U.S.

When there is a problem, many times it pays to stand back and work out whether there is a problem in the first place. On immigration in the U.S. and also in Europe the question I will ask, even if it seems a little odd, is:

Assuming you will want and probably need benefits, such as health care and pensions, in a few years, who is going to pay for them?

The answer of course is - "Those that are of working age."

And there lies a problem or two, the number of retiree's is rising and the number of workers is set to fall. Net result the workers will have to pay more and more taxes if you are to have the retirement you think you deserve.
You might just need to convince those younger people it is in there interest to pay higher taxes just to keep you healthy and warm. They'll probably tell you to "Take a long walk on a short pier." if they are polite.

We know why the number of retiree's is rising, baby boomers and the next couple of generations.

But since then the birth rate has fallen so that for the last twenty years at least, without Immigration, the number of workers paying taxes would fall.

So either you have to persuade the fairer sex to have three kids each or welcome immigrants.

The best of luck trying to persuade women to have more kids, the easier option might just be allow more immigrants. Of course these need to be legal. So some sums need to be done how many to allow in each year and increase the number of visas.
Not decrease them as Trump did, because it now looks like his reductions have probably led to an increase in 'illegals' because they cannot get in legally.

The immigrants that are Lawful Permanent Residents are the only ones that can receive benefits and those have limitations and from that group many of the 18 - 25 age group serve in the U.S. Armed Forces.

For undocumented immigrants the only benefits they can receive are;

Emergency medical treatment under Medicaid if the individual meets the other eligibility requirements and the medical condition is not related to an organ transplant procedure.

Immunizations for immunizable diseases and testing for and treatment of symptoms of communicable diseases.

Free public education for grades K-12.

Federally subsidized school lunch and school breakfast programs for those eligible for free public education under state or local law.

For all immigrants that get jobs The Institute on Taxation & Economic Policy in March 2019 estimated that Undocumented immigrants contribute significantly to state and local taxes, collectively paying an estimated $11.74 billion a year.

There is very little evidence, that I can find, that supports your argument, but I am open to change my views if you can provide documentation.

When they thought they had found voter fraud in New Hampshire, it turned out to be university students that used out of state driving licenses as proof of identity, which is perfectly legal. When this was pointed out to Trump he immediately called a halt to the commission.

No, the forward momentum of the satellite is the stronger force, with gravity as the weaker force causing it to drop slightly...

The earth's gravity, for our example, acts to change the direction of travel of the satellite. Otherwise, the satellite would continue onwards on a straight line path and would no longer be a satellite.

Note that the 'change in direction' is the act of the satellite enjoying a freefall acceleration towards the earth.

As Douglas Adams beautifully explains, the trick is to enjoy that freefall but to always miss the ground...

A satellite always misses the ground due to enjoying enough orbital velocity such that as it accelerates towards the earth, it has enough perpendicular orbital motion such that the earth always remains perpendicular to that orbital motion despite the continual freefall acceleration towards the earth.

This all works beautifully for a round sphere for the earth.

A flat earth would be somewhat problematic for orbits!

International Space Station, only 420km above Earth, where people are weightless, because gravity is so weak,
Forward motion - 27,600 km/h
Downward motion - 2 km/month

Exactly.

So for example, our various artificial satellites are always falling back towards earth... Except... They have enough orbital velocity that by the time they have fallen down to earth, they are another quarter away round their merry freefall...

Cue Douglas Adams quote!

No, the forward momentum of the satellite is the stronger force, with gravity as the weaker force causing it to drop slightly. If gravity becomes the dominant force then the satellites path will now turn towards the large object and there will be a Crunch, unless it is small and the large object has an atmosphere, in which case it will burn up, maybe explosively.

Message 2070299: With the clever trick of always missing! ;-)

Are you sure. Newton's laws of motion say without an outside influence bodies in motion will always travel in a straight line. So without gravity there would be no satellites, and they would not only miss, they would just depart further and further into the universe.

Most of the orders were made before the trials started, probably as a measure to prevent the companies running out of funds, think Valneva.

BBC - Budget 2021: Covid deaths set to cut state pension costs
The amount the government has to spend on state pensions will fall by £1.5bn by 2022, partly because of over-65s dying of Covid, forecasts suggest.
The government will also receive an extra £0.9bn from inheritance tax, partly due to Covid-related deaths.
The figures have been published by the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) - the government's fiscal watchdog.
It said it had "revised up our assumption for excess deaths this year and next relative to November".
More than 144,000 deaths involving Covid-19 have occurred in the UK since the start of the pandemic, figures published by the UK's statistics agencies show.
The majority of coronavirus deaths have been among people aged over 65, many of whom will have been receiving the state pension.
...
"With virus-related deaths rising sharply again in recent months, we have revised up the number of excess pensioner-age deaths in 2020-21 from 90,000 in our November forecast to around 100,000 in this one," the OBR said in its Economic And Fiscal Outlook, which is published alongside the Budget.


That's 2/3rds of all UK covid deaths occurred in the over 65's.

If Transport is to go 100% electric, then at 2016 petroleum product usage we need 30 trillion kWh of energy to replace it. An increase of 20% over present day electricity production.

Even if plans are in place to increase electricity production rather than replace old dirty stations it takes more than 10 years to get approved, built, commissioned and connected up.

Now I am really worried. Joe has promised that the vaccines are 100% safe. NOTHING is 100% safe. If, by this time next year, there have been no major side effects from taking the vaccines I may decide to get vaccinated. Meanwhile I will just stay home 90% of the time like I have done for the last 10 years. Not one outbreak of the flu in my house in over 10 years.

Your choice, and I respect that, but IMHO it is the wrong one.

In the UK all reports have to be reported on a Yellow Card, The Yellow Card report, up to the14th Feb 2021 can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-vaccine-adverse-reactions/coronavirus-vaccine-summary-of-yellow-card-reporting#yellow-card-reports, at that time 15 million does had been administered and
As of 14 February 2021, for the UK

26,823 Yellow Cards have been reported for the Pfizer/BioNTech
31,427 have been reported for the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine
177 have been reported where the brand of the vaccine was not specified
The vast majority of these are for minor symptoms, which if they listened or read the leaflets, they would have known could occur.
there have been a small number of;
Events with a fatal outcome
The MHRA has received 197 UK reports of suspected ADRs to the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine in which the patient died shortly after vaccination, 205 reports for the Oxford University/AstraZeneca vaccine and 4 where the brand of vaccine was unspecified. The majority of these reports were in elderly people or people with underlying illness. Usage of the AstraZeneca has increased rapidly and as such, so has reporting of fatal events with a temporal association with vaccination however, this does not indicate a link between vaccination and the fatalities reported. Review of individual reports and patterns of reporting does not suggest the vaccine played a role in the death.


And so far, as of yesterday over 220 million doses have been administered. I am sure if there was a serious problem anywhere it would have been all over the media already.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has called it “vaccine nationalism”, but what it really is is vaccine capitalism. Countries are rushing to outbid each other on vaccines because there is an inadequate supply, and there is inadequate supply because pharmaceutical companies are allowed not to share their inventions with the world

Although parts of that para maybe true, there is evidence that shows it in some cases it is problems of production and a shortage of supplies that are the cause of this apparent inadequate supply.
https://globalnews.ca/news/7636798/pfizer-moderna-vaccine-ingredients/
https://www.pharmaceutical-technology.com/comment/covid-19-vaccine-manufacturing-disruptions/
And so far only about 100 million vaccinations have been administered only about 1.3% of the world population. If the vaccinations were spread equally around the world we wouldn't even notice and we would be in permanent lock-down until production rates can be increased beyond the 0.5%/month delivery rate we are now seeing.

If we were to deliver vaccines to the most vulnerable first, the over 80's, then the vaccines would still be very much as they are at the moment. Because in a lot of the world not many people reach that age, i.e. the average life expectancy in Africa is below 65. In Russia life expectancy is about 70.

BBC - United Airlines grounds planes after engine failure
In response to the incident, Japan has asked all airlines using Boeing 777s with the same Pratt & Whitney 4000 engine to avoid its airspace.

Boeing said it supported Japan's decision and has recommended suspending operations of all 777s with the same engine while an investigation into the incident continues. The manufacturer says there are 69 Boeing 777s currently in service worldwide with this engine.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), United is the only US airline flying such planes, with the others being in Japan and South Korea.
...
As stated in the link from Rob's previous.
"Based on the initial information, we concluded that the inspection interval should be stepped up for the hollow fan blades that are unique to this model of engine, used solely on Boeing 777 airplanes."

The FAA is meeting representatives from the engine firm and Boeing.

The National Transportation Safety Board's initial finding is that most of the damage occurred in the right engine, where two fan blades were fractured and other blades also impacted. The main body of the aeroplane suffered only minor damage.
...
In 2018, the right engine of a United Airlines plane broke shortly before it landed in Honolulu. Following an investigation, the National Transportation Safety Board said the incident was caused by a full-length fan blade fracture.

Is this woman for real? Covid-19: UK should send vaccines to poorer nations now - WTO chief

Does she know that most of the vaccines ordered either haven't been manufactures yet, or are from companies that haven't had their vaccines approved yet.
I'm told from a knowledgeable person in the NHS that the time from departure from the manufacturing plant to being injected in an arm can be less than 5 days.
And going by what has been reported in the press, those that think they might be in line for their 1st jab in April and onwards might be disappointed as most of the vaccines available will be required for 2nd jabs, in people like me. Extending the period between the 1st and 2nd jabs beyond 12 weeks is not up for discussion say the experts.

Texas governor’s biggest donors: Energy industry that failed
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — As frozen Texas reels under one of the worst electricity outages in U.S. history, Republican Gov. Greg Abbott has blamed grid operators and iced-over wind turbines but gone easier on another culprit: an oil and gas industry that is the state’s dominant business and his biggest political contributor.
Oil and gas built and enriched Texas, and with that its politicians, including those who became president. But none has reaped campaign contributions on the scale of Abbott, who in six years in office has raised more than $150 million from donors, more than any governor in U.S. history.

Texas’ energy interests are the biggest backers of his political rise, and he has not ruled out a White House run in 2024. More than $26 million of his contributions have come from the oil and gas industry, more than any other economic sector, according to an analysis by the National Institute on Money in Politics.
Girding power generators against fierce winter weather is essential in colder climates. In Iowa, where wind farms supply 40% of the state’s electricity, windmills have been turning all week despite temperatures that dropped to minus 17 degrees (minus 27 degrees Celsius) in Des Moines. In Texas, grid officials say they can’t speak for why power generators here don’t do the same.

A decade ago, the report on the last Texas failure listed a number of ways to winterize an oil well or a natural gas device and the estimated costs: installing a cold-weather production unit ($23,000), collecting gas vented from an injection pump to supply a heater ($675), or building a fiberglass hut to enclose the production equipment ($1,500).

Winterizing 50,000 wells — just under a third of the number of total natural gas wells active in Texas — was estimated in 2011 to cost as much as $1.75 billion, a figure that would almost certainly be higher today due to inflation. By comparison, the Texas oil and natural gas industry paid $13.9 billion in taxes and royalties last year alone, according to figures from the Texas Oil & Gas Association.

Scarcity of niche biotech ingredients hinder vaccine production
Acuitas, a tiny biotechnology firm in Vancouver, B.C., has just 30 employees and leases its labs from the University of British Columbia. The company doesn’t even have a sign on its building. Until last year, it outsourced production of only small volumes of lipid nanoparticles, fat droplets used to deliver RNA into cells, for research and a single approved treatment for a rare disease.

But now, one of Acuitas’s discoveries has become a precious commodity. A proprietary molecule called ionizable cationic lipid is a crucial piece of the mRNA vaccine made by Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech, and it is in urgent demand to produce billions of vaccine doses worldwide.

Scaling up production of formerly niche substances such as lipid nanoparticles for a global vaccine drive has been among the most complex challenges facing the Biden administration as it aims to ramp up the frustratingly slow provision of shots across the country, according to interviews with company officials and outside scientists and government reports.

On Jan. 21, the new president’s second day in office, the Biden administration issued a report that cited shortages of lipid nanoparticles among “urgent gaps” in the vaccine supply chain.

“It’s on a scale that hasn’t been done before,” said Pieter Cullis, the Canadian scientist and Acuitas chairman who is considered a godfather of lipid nanoparticle technology.

Manhattan D.A. Recruits Top Prosecutor To Go After Trump Family
As the Manhattan district attorney’s office steps up the criminal investigation of Donald J. Trump, it has reached outside its ranks to enlist a prominent former federal prosecutor to help scrutinize financial dealings at the former president’s company, according to several people with knowledge of the matter.

The former prosecutor, Mark F. Pomerantz, has deep experience investigating and defending white-collar and organized crime cases, bolstering the team under District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. that is examining Mr. Trump and his family business, the Trump Organization.

The investigation by Mr. Vance, a Democrat, is focused on possible tax and bank-related fraud, including whether the Trump Organization misled its lenders or local tax authorities about the value of his properties to obtain loans and tax benefits, the people with knowledge of the matter said, requesting anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the investigation. Mr. Trump has maintained he did nothing improper and has long railed against the inquiry, calling it a politically motivated “witch hunt.”

I was under the impression that all of the 787 parts were outsourced, probably to the lowest bidder and that Boeing assemble the parts using shims etc. to ensure the parts look like they are fitted together.

Pfizer says South African variant could significantly reduce vaccine protection
(Reuters) - A laboratory study suggests that the South African variant of the coronavirus may reduce antibody protection from the Pfizer Inc/BioNTech SE vaccine by two-thirds, and it is not clear if the shot will be effective against the mutation, the companies said on Wednesday.

The great Texas climate catastrophe is heading your way.

Green energy means a less reliable power grid. Why do our leaders deny that?

In summary:

Going green is fine and good for our planet and for the health of all of us.

It is the greedy practices of the old GOP politics that poisons the wells!


Here's wishing for the people of Texas the best and the best recovery possible under the circumstances.

Stay safe folks!

The question Texans and the Republican party need to ask is "Why do wind farms work, during the winter, in Canada and the Northern States and not in Texas?"

Yes, that is true, it was an extraordinary weather event.
(Unless you believe that this "normally expected weather", as one poster here opined in another thread.)

But the energy sources most affected were solar and wind power, both of which were practically useless.

What is "normally expected weather"?
Most of those that study exceptional events normally talk of "once in so many years" events and if similar events occur more than once every century then it is "normal" and should be planned for.
And as low temps have hit Texas in 1933, 1949 and 1989, then it is definitely not unexpected. And to make it worse this was forecasted over a week before it happened.

But the energy sources most affected were solar and wind power, both of which were practically useless.

From https://apnews.com/article/texas-power-outage-winter-energy-pride-c260c340f619688dd511cc6645b40a04
Republican Gov. Greg Abbott called for an investigation of the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, which operates the state’s power grid. His indignation struck a much different tone than just a day earlier, when he told Texans that ERCOT was prioritizing residential customers and that power was getting restored to hundreds of thousands of homes.

But hours after those assurances, the number of outages in Texas only rose, at one point exceeding 4 million customers.

“This is unacceptable,” Abbott said.

By late Tuesday afternoon, ERCOT officials said some power had been restored, but they warned that even those gains were fragile and more outages were possible.

The grid began preparing for the storm a week ahead of time, but it reached a breaking point early Monday as conditions worsened and knocked power plants offline, ERCOT president Bill Magness said. Some wind turbine generators were iced, but nearly twice as much power was wiped out at natural gas and coal plants. Forcing controlled outages was the only way to avert an even more dire blackout in Texas, Magness said.

“What we’re protecting against is worse,” he said.

Still, Magness said ERCOT could not offer a firm timetable for when power might be fully restored. The Federal Emergency Management Agency said Texas had requested 60 generators and that hospitals and nursing homes would get priority.


P.S. As this is about a Republican State that has f____ up, why is in in the Joe Biden thread?

Some of the energy sources powering the grid were knocked out by the inclement weather, most of which were facilities run by gas, coal or nuclear energy.

BBC - Covid: Ardrossan care worker caught virus twice and fears it could happen again
A Scottish care worker has revealed how she caught Covid twice within seven months.
Michelle Lamont, from Ardrossan in North Ayrshire, tested positive for the virus in April 2020.
But the 50-year-old was "stunned" when routine testing picked up the infection again in November.

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/2/15/uk-study-finds-kent-variant-may-be-70-more-deadly
The findings from the New and Emerging Respiratory Virus Threats Advisory Group (NERVTAG), published on Friday on the government’s website, underscored concerns about how mutations may change the characteristics of SARS-CoV2 – the virus that causes COVID-19 – and alter the course of the pandemic.

NERVTAG’s report was based on a dozen studies that found the so-called Kent variant, named after the county where it was first identified, is likely 30 percent to 70 percent more deadly than other versions of the novel coronavirus in circulation.

Those studies compared hospitalisation and death rates among people infected with the B.1.1.7 variant and those infected with other strains.

I think that the 70% number probably comes from the 30% more transmissible and 30% more deadly.
1.3 * 1.3 = 1.69

And another one in the UK. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/feb/15/32-cases-of-latest-covid-variant-of-concern-found-in-uk
Another coronavirus variant with a potentially worrying set of mutations has been detected in the UK and should be targeted in surge testing, experts have said.

The variant, known as B1525, is the subject of a report by researchers at the University of Edinburgh, who say it has been detected through genome sequencing in 10 countries including Denmark, the US and Australia, with 32 cases found in the UK so far. The earliest sequences were dated to December and cropped up in the UK and Nigeria.

NASA Remembers Millie Hughes-Fulford
The experiments Dr. Hughes-Fulford conducted on the shuttle were only the start of her yearslong examination into the effects of weightlessness on the body’s immune system and bone mass.
In addition to her work over nine days aboard the Columbia, which carried the Spacelab laboratory, she oversaw experiments on five shuttle flights (four to the Russian Space Station Mir and one to the International Space Station) and on a Russian Soyuz and two SpaceX missions (all to the international station).
Fifteen of the 29 Apollo astronauts had infections in space or soon after they returned. In her experiments, Dr. Hughes-Fulford examined how microgravity, or weightlessness, caused the suppression of T cells, the white blood cells that lead the immunological fight against disease.
