  1. Nice to see the US come out and confess to murdering 10 innocent people in order to provide a distraction from Biden's political disaster that was the Afghan imbroglio. Weeks later though, so shame on me for not leaving this well alone down the memory hole. It's all ok though... because it was a "tragic mistake". https://www.reuters.com/world/asia-pacific/us-military-says-10-civilians-killed-kabul-drone-strike-last-month-2021-09-17/ A drone strike in Kabul last month killed as many as 10 civilians, including seven children, the U.S. military said on Friday, apologizing for what it called a "tragic mistake".
  2. Things have really slowed down around here... speaking of slow
  3. Hmmm... happy to see the ambition, but worried that this means Jack is on the way out.
  4. A certain Yellen is now resident in the treasury. Fed independence indeed. They are no longer married to 2%, but to 2% on average and have openly discussed allowing things to run "hot" for a while to make up for recent mediocre inflation prints. Lots of fun on deck with all sorts trying to decipher the latest Fed statement. Of course, none of this says anything about the real inflation rate, just the Feds specially constructed number.
  5. Trump would liberally stop and chat with the media all the time on his way to/from the WH. This was after a pretty media friendly Obama presidency too. The regression here for regular DC media is stark. Biden is straight up hiding/being hidden from the media, and for a very good reason.
  6. Hard not to pull for both of these guys in future.
  7. Use nothing else. Just use one, go mad and use all three, even mix up the order. Simples.
  8. If you like your democracy, you can have your democracy!
  9. Our first baby arrived on Fri, a boy who announced his arrival by peeing vertically the second his toes cleared the cabin door All are happy and healthy after a hectic few days. Currently sleeping with a belly full of milk, living the easy life.
  10. Interesting rumblings going on regarding future policy in the Biden admin. After the repubs countered his initial $2T plan with their own $1T plan, it appears Biden has come back to table after a week of chatting with a new $1T proposal. Little of the details regarding the proposal are being actually discussed, more the our plan is better than your plan stuff right now. I'll be surprised if the repubs allow him to pass anything but this may be an effort to construct a budget focussed proposal they can ram through via the reconciliation process.
  11. Care to elaborate? Myocarditis is by definition a heart condition, and quite serious too if you are older much as any other malady of the heart.
  12. You can still get infected after being vaccinated. That's not how that is supposed to work. It does keep the marketing people at the pharma companies happy however. Much as has been done with the Flu "vaccine". I'm not trying to change any minds here... language is a living thing and the common usage of the term is what it is.
  13. Further evidence of important side effects from the "vaccines". This time related to the Pfizer version, where a heart condition is being seen in populations of young people. Fortunately, to balance things out, this appears to be most common in males, after the earlier female favored clotting issue. It is not clear if there are correlated factors in the affected individuals, e.g., medical conditions. "Israel’s Health Ministry said on Tuesday it had found the small number of heart inflammation cases observed mainly in young men who received Pfizer’s (PFE.N) COVID-19 vaccine in Israel were likely linked to their vaccination." https://www.reuters.com/world/middle-east/israel-sees-probable-link-between-pfizer-vaccine-small-number-myocarditis-cases-2021-06-01/
  14. More lives than a cat, let's see what storm he cooks up this time.
  15. Everton got a little lucky here. Carlo should have had his head on the chopping block for their lack of results last season. Free dismissal and keep in Madrid's good books for potential future loans etc.
  16. Good news for us. He has a bright future in front of him and now a full summer to be ready to push on next season.
  17. Pep is becoming a parody at this stage. I'm amazed that someone experienced like Kidd or someone else in the backroom staff must be able to get through to him.
  18. Nike covered up for a very un MeToo set of behavior. The apology ad should be great. Hope Puma sue the shite out of him.
  19. Loads of upside. Solid young player that could give us 20-30 starts next year. A better fit than Buendia too imho.
  20. Yup. As much as people like to take the piss out of America, I can't imagine things being much different in any other country which such free form gun laws.
  21. Can you add anything regarding the waste products generated in this process. That appears to be a difficult challenge given the nature of both primary processes, and it's not clear how much longer we can just send this stuff off to our own poor communities or less well run countries. Of course, the energy requirements are interesting too.
  22. Does raining money for CEO/shareholders of various pharma companies count?
  23. UEFA officially begin proceedings against Madrid/Barca/Juve. Barca will probably get off lighter as they can say old president, membership vote etc. This is a huge moment to see if UEFA have the guts to actually punish the instigators in Madrid and Turin or will everything just get lightly brushed under the carpet while we are all distracted by the euro champs.
  24. This is about as America as it gets. Media folks visiting the real world at George Floyd square this morning.
