As famines of ‘biblical proportion’ loom, Security Council urged to ‘act fast.’ The world is not only facing “a global health pandemic but also a global humanitarian catastrophe”, the UN food relief agency chief told the Security Council on Tuesday via video link. Noting that the global spread of COVID-19 this year has sparked “the worst humanitarian crisis since World War Two”, Executive Director of the World Food Programme (WFP) David Beasley pointed to deepening crises, more frequent natural disasters and changing weather patterns, saying “we’re already facing a perfect storm.” As millions of civilians in conflict-scarred nations teeter on the brink of starvation, he said, “famine is a very real and dangerous possibility.” Mr. Beasley painted a grim picture of 135 million people facing crisis levels of hunger or worse, coupled with an additional 130 million on the edge of starvation prompted by Coronavirus, noting that WFP currently offers a lifeline to nearly 100 million people – up from about 80 million just a few years ago. “If we can’t reach these people with the life-saving assistance they need, our analysis shows that 300,000 people could starve to death every single day over a three-month period”, he upheld. “This does not include the increase of starvation due to COVID-19.”

Gas accident: China explosion in Zhuhai. Today about 9 a.m. an explosion thundered in the Baitantou hotel, city of Zhuhai, southern China’s Guangdong province. First, a fire broke out in a small cafe “Tenghu”. The explosion occurred a few minutes later, when several dozen onlookers gathered near the institution. Explosion in Zhuhai leaves three injured, Chinese Central Television (CCTV) reported. The official version is traditional — gas cylinders exploded. Zhuhai is an important export hub in the south of China, bordering Macau. It has about two million inhabitants.
China accused the US of becoming “the biggest driver of militarization” in the contested South China Sea, as tensions between Washington and Beijing look set to swamp a regional Asian summit. US-China rivalry is expected to dominate discussion at this year’s Asean conference, which comes just days after Beijing launched ballistic missiles in the flashpoint waters as part of live-fire exercises. Beijing claims the majority of the resource-rich South China Sea, invoking its so-called nine-dash line to justify its alleged historic rights to the key trade waterway, also contested Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan.
G7 Foreign Ministers’ made a joint Statement on the Poisoning of Alexei Navalny. The text of the following statement was released by the G7 foreign ministers of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States of America and the High Representative of the European Union. “We, the G7 foreign ministers of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States of America and the High Representative of the European Union, are united in condemning, in the strongest possible terms, the confirmed poisoning of Alexei Navalny.” MEPs initiate the creation of an international group to investigate the assassination attempt on Navalny. According to MEP and former Lithuanian Prime Minister Andrius Kubilius, the Kremlin is not interested in truly investigating the circumstances of the assassination attempt on Navalny’s life, “as in any other case when critics of the regime were the victims.” “Therefore, calls for a thorough investigation by the Russian authorities are ineffective, the only way to get at least some clarity on the case is to conduct an independent investigation.”

It is possible China flew a space plane this past weekend. New Chinese space plane landed at mysterious air base, evidence suggests. A commercial satellite photo may reveal a new Chinese space plane just moments after it landed at a remote site on the western side of China. The photo, which is too low resolution to be conclusive, was snapped by the San Francisco-based company Planet. It shows what could be the classified Chinese spacecraft on a long runway, along with several support vehicles lined up nearby. Terse statements by China’s official Xinhua news agency said only that a Long March 2F rocket had carried a “reusable experimental spacecraft” into orbit and that the launch and landing were successful. The landing took place on Sept. 6 at almost the exact time the photo was snapped by the passing satellite. “I’m reading a lot into a few little dots,” admits Jonathan McDowell, an astronomer with the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, who diligently tracks spacecraft and satellites. But, he says, the photo, combined with other circumstantial evidence, such as the new spaceship’s orbital path, strongly suggests that China has launched and landed a small, uncrewed, space-shuttle-like vehicle. “The information sort of all hangs together now that this was a test of something, probably a space plane, that made a winged reentry and landed on the runway,” he says. The new spaceship took off on Sept. 4 under unusually heavy secrecy compared with other recent Chinese space missions. Jonathan McDowell: “Ground track of Chinese reusable spacecraft passes over airbase near Lop Nor nuclear test site at Sep 6 0155 UTC, consistent with probable landing time.”
Gentside: “Internet users believe they might have found ‘China’s Area 51.’ Conspiracy theorists are always finding crazy things on Google Maps. There is often much to see or not to see with very little information. These conspiracy enthusiasts have stumbled upon something strange in the Gobi Desert and they have many theories as to what it could be… So maybe it isn’t China’s Area 51 but it sure must hide some military secrets.” [Gaslighting disguised as clickbait that eventually makes a concession buried in the absolute last line of the article. Funny how much this area looks just like the area in McDowell’s photos. But these are “conspiracy theorists” saying this, so you should probably just internalize the subtle peer pressure to discredit this, disbelieve all photographic evidence, and agree to ignore that the original information came from “an astronomer with the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, who diligently tracks spacecraft and satellites” in an interview on NPR. Either way, the Chinese are going to Space. Why are we arguing over pronouns and gender reveal parties again? Get back to work….]

India, Azerbaijan and Serbia refused to participate in the exercises.
A bill has been introduced into the US Congress to ban President Xi Jinping. Xi holds so many titles that he has earned himself a nickname: the “Chairman of Everything.” The bill, called the “Name the Enemy Act,” was introduced to the House of Representatives on August 7 by Republican Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania. “China is not a democracy, and its citizens have no right to vote, assemble, or speak freely,” said the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission. “Giving General Secretary Xi the unearned title of ‘President’ lends a veneer of democratic legitimacy to the CCP and Xi’s authoritarian rule.”

A refugee camp on the island of Lesvos in Aegean Sea burns again, gas cylinders explode. Reportedly, the camp was set on fire by illegal Afghan migrants trying to leave the island after overcrowded camp was blocked due to outbreak of COVID-19. However, even after the fires, only 406 children and teenagers were allowed to leave Lesbos; they were sent by plane to northern Greece. Thousands of residents at Moriya Camp were left homeless and without medical care, since the fire destroyed not only residential buildings, but also medical institutions. Most sleep right on the road, the rest were temporarily housed in tents delivered to the island, as well as on board two navy ships as emergency temporary housing.

Several cases of extreme police violence sparked widespread chaos in Bogotá. Bogotá is being shaken by a popular revolt after the police killed a young man. In the video, a person is run over while fleeing the police. Tthe prison scene shocked the country. Victim Javier Ordoñez died after being knocked down by two policemen who gave him long shocks with his tasers. Police killed a lawyer in Colombia. This has sparked protests and left at least nine dead. Javier Ordóñez was a victim of the excessive use of force, in an episode that recalls the death of African American George Floyd. Conflict between protester and police leads to chaos in the Colombian capital. City officials asked residents of Soacha to stay home on Thursday night. Today, while a young man was cycling home from Fontibon, Bogotá, the police illegally detained him and beat him. This has all happened in a 48 hour time period.

Many outlets are noting how much current conditions photographed without filters in San Francisco resemble footage from Blade Runner 2049. [When you notice that multiple outlets are reporting on the same fluff piece or acknowledging the same piece of seemingly useless data simultaneously, always look into it - there tends to be more to the simultaneous data drop and usually that means the drop is a form of disclosure. For example, remember we saw this with all outlets covering a spike in the purchase of “luxury bunkers” in New Zealand with coverage culminating around mid-2019, well before the CEO exodus which began gathering steam around November/December. In this particular case, this would mean rewatching Blade Runner 2049 with new eyes and noting any parallels between its content and what is happening in the world right now. Start keeping an eye out for similar patterns in media drops that seem superfluous on the surface but have high resonance and repetition across outlets. There’s a reason it’s happening. Pay attention.]

Electroverse: Cold records over the past 24 hours. “NOAA won’t want to hear it –I doubt they’ll even properly log it– but HUNDREDS of low temperature records have tumbled across the United States over the past 24 hours as brutal Arctic air sank anomalously-far south on the back of weak and wavy meridional jet stream flow. According to the ‘unofficial’ data compiled by CoolWX, a plague of new all-time cold records spread across the U.S. over the past 24 hours — an embarrassment of riches for the cold hunters, almost as embarrassing as that paltry handful of heat records tumbling in the far northwest. In addition to the cold, many regions also received their most-ever snowfall this early in the season: seventeen inches of global warming goodness fell in Wyoming, New Mexico saw its earliest flakes on record, and parts of Colorado suffered their earliest snowfall in decades—these are just a few of the astonishing weather reports coming out of a record-setting September week. Rapid City, SD, set a U.S. record for the fastest turnaround between 100 degree temperatures and measurable snow, after it hit 102 degrees on Saturday, only to then see an inch of snow on Monday. This two-day gap broke the record for shortest amount of time between those two weather observations — the previous record being Ardmore, SD, in Sept 1929 when a similar event took place over the course of approximately three days. And it stands: if proponents of a CO2-induced Apocalypse want to blame human activity for every flip-flopping weather phenomenon, then they also have to acknowledge the natural factors that caused 1929’s swing-between-extremes.”
Hackers linked to Russia, China, and Iran are trying to spy on people tied to both U.S. President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden, Microsoft Corp said on Thursday. The Microsoft statement highlights how advisers to both presidential campaigns are at risk from digital spies around the globe, as the two candidates face off on Nov. 3 in one of the most consequential U.S. presidential elections in decades. The announcement by Microsoft’s vice president for customer security, Tom Burt, said the group accused of breaching Hillary Clinton’s campaign emails in 2016 - a Russian military intelligence-linked unit widely known as Fancy Bear - had spent the past year trying to break into accounts belonging to political consultants serving both Republicans and Democrats as well as advocacy organizations and think tanks. Burt also said Chinese hackers had gone after people “closely associated with U.S. presidential campaigns and candidates” - including an unnamed Biden ally who was targeted through a personal email address and “at least one prominent individual formerly associated with the Trump Administration.” He added that Iranian hackers - which Microsoft has already called out publicly for attempts to spy on a U.S. political campaign that Reuters identified as being Trump’s - had since tried to log into accounts belonging to Trump administration officials and members of the Republican president’s campaign staff.
Trump admits downplaying the virus knowing it was ‘deadly stuff.’ In taped interviews with the journalist Bob Woodward, the president said as early as February that the virus was more dangerous than the flu, even as he told the country otherwise. President Trump acknowledged to the journalist Bob Woodward that he knowingly played down the coronavirus earlier this year even though he was aware it was life-threatening and vastly more serious than the seasonal flu. “You just breathe the air and that’s how it’s passed,” the president told Mr. Woodward in audio recordings made available on The Washington Post website.

Researchers from the Enteric Virus Laboratory of the University of Barcelona, one of Spain’s most prestigious universities, analyzed samples of wastewater frozen between January 2018 and December 2019, and came up with the shocking results of the presence of SARS-CoV-2 genome already in March 2019, before any notification of COVID-19 cases in the world. Experts said the finding was probably either a contaminated sample or a separate coronavirus outbreak, although more research was needed. “All samples were negatives regarding the SARS-CoV-2 genome presence except for March 12, 2019, in which the levels of SARS-CoV-2 were low but were positive, using two different targets”, says the researchers. “Those infected with COVID-19 could have been diagnosed like flu patients in primary care by mistake, contributing to the community transmission before the public health authorities took measures,” said Bosch, who is also president of the Spanish Society of Virology. Although COVID-19 is a respiratory disease, researchers proved there are large quantities of the coronavirus genome in the excrements that reach waste waters. “These results, sent to a high impact journal and published in the archive medRxiv, suggest the infection was present before knowing about any case of COVID-19 in any part of the world,” the statement said. Dr Joan Ramon Villalbi of the Spanish Society for Public Health and Sanitary Administration told Reuters it was still early to draw definitive conclusions, “But it’s definitely interesting, it’s suggestive.”

San Francisco homeless measure becomes law after Supreme Court denies challenge. Prop C, the 2018 initiative that taxes wealthy San Francisco businesses to pay for homeless service, became law Wednesday after the California Supreme Court refused to hear a challenge to it. Prop C, which implements a .5% tax on businesses making over $50 million a year, passed in 2018 with more than 61 percent of the vote. But the law’s been held up in the courts by lawsuits filed by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, the anti-tax lobbyists. The group claimed that the tax needed two-thirds of the vote to pass, but the state court of appeals rejected this argument back in June. [This law went into effect yesterday.

The Age of Disorder – the new era for economics, politics and our way of life. The world is on the cusp of a new era that will be characterized initially by disorder with a likely loosening of the globalization that created the rapid economic and asset price growth of the last 40 years. The eight themes that will define the Age of Disorder are:
Deteriorating US/China relations and the reversal of unfettered globalization.
A make-or-break decade for Europe.
Even higher debt and MMT/helicopter money becoming mainstream.
Inflation or deflation?
Inequality worsening before a backlash and reversal takes place.
The intergenerational divide widening.
The climate debate will build.
Technology revolution or bubble?

China’s long tentacles extend deep into American media. The companies that own our major networks all do business in China. And that’s just the beginning. Despite the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) record of oppression, corporate media outlets are parroting the authoritarian government’s propaganda, even in the midst of an outbreak the CCP worsened through a cover-up. Many of those media outlets have financial ties to Chinese companies with intense oversight from the CCP. “You often see representatives from American companies with financial ties to China naturally become defenders of the CCP’s policies and spreading the CCP’s propaganda,” said Helen Raleigh, an author and senior contributor at The Federalist who emigrated from China. “The financial tie means these Americans will be much less likely to challenge China’s human rights record or unacceptable demand such as technology transfer.” We do not know the extent of editorial oversight from corporations and individuals with financial incentives to placate the CCP, if any. But we know the incentives exist, and that’s worth understanding. Below is a breakdown of financial ties between major U.S. media organizations and the CCP. Beijing is expanding its ability to influence societies around the world through its exercise of soft power. This is best exemplified by its Belt and Road Initiative, but there is another, more stealthy effort occurring along-side it that has potentially profound implications for Chinese foreign policy—Beijing’s growing influence in the Western press. China’s state-run media companies are expanding their integration with Western news outlets and having some surprisingly significant impacts. The Chinese Communist Party has rapidly expanded its efforts to influence discussions about China beyond its borders to attempt to suppress criticism and make international media to refer to China in a positive light. In 2018, Xinhua, China’s largest state-run news agency, announced that it was expanding cooperation with the U.S. news service the Associated Press (AP). Xinhua declared that the two news agencies had established broad cooperation in such areas as new media, economic information, and the application of artificial intelligence. Beijing’s propaganda war has two fronts: internal and external. Internally, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) tells its subjects that U.S. media is acknowledging its innocence for the COVID-19 outbreak. Externally, China can leverage U.S. media reports as part of its effort to downplay its failures and promote its “expertise” to help other afflicted nations – a soft power win. And to ensure that American media takes heed, at a recent meeting with Comcast corporate executives, Chinese Consul General Huang Ping said, “China’s prevention and control practices have earned valuable time and experience for other countries…We hope that the NBC [which is owned by Comcast] and other U.S. media will objectively and fairly report China’s efforts to control the epidemic.”
The American Security Institute recently released a report and launched a campaign, featuring a billboard in Times Square, to draw further attention to the extensive array of sectors the Chinese government and its partners have invested into. But, exactly how much does the nation own? China produces 97 percent of U.S. antibiotics and about 80 percent of active pharmaceutical ingredients used in American drugs, giving the Chinese Communist Party absolute control of potentially life-saving medicine. For example, Chinese pharmaceutical companies supply 70 percent of the world’s acetaminophen, commonly used in Tylenol. In 2017, the United States imported $4.6 billion in agricultural goods from China, which is also responsible for much of the global supply of soy and pea proteins that are found in nutritional supplements and synthetic meats. A Chinese firm has also purchased Smithfield, the world’s largest pork processor and hog producer. Smithfield said in a later statement pertaining to their ownership structure that they are “a U.S. company that provides more than 40,000 American jobs and partners with thousands of American farmers. The company was founded in Smithfield, Virginia, in 1936 and was acquired by Hong Kong-based WH Group in 2013. WH Group is a publicly-traded company with shareholders around the world. Anyone anywhere can purchase shares of WH Group on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. WH Group’s shareholders include many large U.S.-based financial institutions.” The Chinese government’s theft of intellectual property has been an open secret for decades. More recently, U.S. authorities have discovered China is funding American university researchers, who don’t always disclose those contributions. The manufacturing of smartphones and other household items is heavily reliant on China, which controls most of the rare earth minerals that make those items work. Additionally, China is seeking to build 5G networks in the United States and other Western countries, which could potentially feed personal information and sensitive data to the Chinese Communist Party. Chinese firms have bought AMC Entertainment, Legendary Entertainment, and other media companies. Control of 8,000-plus of American theater screens and other media platforms allows China to project “soft power” and block unflattering depictions of the Chinese government from being presented, both in terms of creative production and mass distribution. Citing the nonpartisan economic think-tank Paulson Institute, the American Security Institute report underscores that “Chinese firms and investors own a controlling majority in nearly 2,400 U.S. companies.” These include: AMC Entertainment (entertainment), Cirrus Wind Energy (energy), Complete Genomics (health care), First International Oil (energy), G.E. Appliances (technology), IBM—P.C. division (technology), Legendary Entertainment Group (entertainment), Motorola Mobility (technology), Nexteer Automotive (automotive), Riot Games (entertainment), Smithfield Foods (food), Teledyne Continental Motors and Mattituck Services (aerospace), Terex Corp. (machinery), Triple H Coal (mining), Zonare Medical Systems (health care). “Under China’s Communist Party dictatorship, private companies are forced to bend to the government’s will,” the report states. “A recently passed law in China requires companies to share data with Chinese communist spy agencies if requested. [U]nder Xi Jinping, the Communist party has returned to being the ultimate authority in business,” writes The Guardian. And Human Rights Watch has written that China is an ‘existential threat’ to human rights." And while the U.S. grants China permission to buy its companies, China does not allow U.S. companies to operate the same way on their soil. “The first priority is to reclaim our critical supply chains so that we can become self-secure instead of reliant on the Chinese government,” Will Coggin, managing director of the American Security Institute, told Fox News. The extent of Chinese investment in recent years has also raised red flags around U.S.
“Breakthroughs” in Russia continue…
In direct sense!
These are far from all of today’s “breakthroughs” of the great highly spiritual space power.
In Moscow, a worker fell on a peacefully sleeping girl, a resident of a communal apartment, along with a piece of the ceiling
The fact is that the house was built back in 1917. And in which century major repairs were made, no one at all remembers
The injured girl is now in Sklif (Sklifosovsky Research Institute of Emergency Medicine) with a head injury, like and the fallen builder
Это еще далеко не все сегодняшние “прорывы” великой высокодуховной космической державы
В Москве на мирно спящую жительницу коммуналки вместе с куском потолка свалился рабочий
Дело в том, что дом был построен ещё в 1917 году. В каком веке делался капремонт, и вовсе никто не помнит
Пострадавшая девушка теперь в Склифе с травмой головы, как и упавший строитель
they are already mining the moon
Watch as these frigates leave Luna Base after offloading on their way to do another long distance Asteroid mining haul.
Footage of the Moon shot over Montreal, Quebec, Canada (March 26, 2020) (1 minute).
Don’t be fooled by the Bullshit
People are not prepared to see how advance the world truly is.
The shock will make normies to take drastic measures. You will see a rise of cults.
We are hoping the world survives, The wheel is already invented, the projects exist since 1944.
If you only could see the truth.
