"Climate change" is the biggest FRAUD of mankind!

Yes the non-natural "climate change" is happening since 1960!
Yes the non-natural "climate change" is "man made" since 1960!
Yes the non-natural "man made climate change" is accelerating globally since 1990!
Yes the non-natural "man made climate change" all areas of life are endangered!

But the "man made climate change" is the result of man made climate control, which is also named Climate Geoengineering or Large Scale Climate Engineering and aspects of it are called Solar Radiation Management, Global Governance of Common Goods etc.

The Geoengineering-Agenda behind the artificial “climate change” hysteria is the biggest resource grab of super-rich capitalists, feudalists, corporatists and fascists. The target is the implementation of Plutonomy, as named by the CityGroup in a memorandum to its selected clients.

#GetWoke → #GoBroke: Gillette loses $8 billion in value this quarter XD





Procter & Gamble Co. (PG) remains committed to the shaving category via its well-known Gillette brand.
The consumer products giant said Tuesday it took an $8 billion write-down on the carrying value of Gillette’s goodwill in the most recent quarter. P&G pinned the blame on currency devaluations…

On L.A.'s homelessness crisis

But to call homelessness a choice is to dismiss the complexities of human frailty. More common on the streets are tangled narratives of trauma, abuse, loss, physical and mental illness, loneliness, addiction and paralyzing poverty, and yes, some peddle drugs, steal and prey on others to survive.

The new numbers, which stand as an indictment of the official response, show a 24% increase in the number of homeless young people and a 7% increase among seniors. They underline a direct correlation with the crippling shortage of affordable housing.

Even the little things that could make a difference get bollixed up by bureaucracy and lack of political and moral will. To cite one example, the nonprofit Chrysalis has a program to help clean city streets with formerly homeless people, offering them a path toward better lives. And as we all know, Los Angeles has been trashed, partly because of the spread of encampments, partly because of illegal dumping, partly because the city can’t keep up with despera

Most expensive drug to purchase at about US$ 2.1mn

That puts Zolgensma's annual list price at $425,000, which Novartis said is less expensive than Spinraza, a competing therapy for spinal muscular atrophy made by Biogen.

The Institute for Clinical and Economic Review, a group that evaluates drug pricing and effectiveness, said in a statement that an appropriate all-in price range for Zolgensma would be between $1.1 million and $1.9 million — below what Novartis set.
But still a fucking lot, unaffordable especially for those who desperately need this medication. But thinking about Chip Roy (R - TX?), companies like Novartis should have a right to make profits. And who are we to restrict this fundamental right of companies to make profits?

Rampant healthcare costs scares patients away from ER


Which is morbidly funny since in Germany, we have an exactly opposite problem in regards to ERs: People are often entering the ER, therefore occupying doctors, although they don't need to go there. On the one hand, it's the problem that in the rural areas, we lack the doctors who could take care of smaller operations and examinations, and on the other hand, people lose all understanding of their injuries, so they don't know when it's time to avoid the ER and simply see a doctor next door. But these are luxury problems, compared to what people in the US experience, thanks to a completely corrupted healthcare system.
But Clark knew that the emergency room can be expensive. A few months earlier, she’d gone to the emergency after falling down her friend’s stairs. She ended up with a $1,200 bill that she still hadn’t paid.

Talkin' 'bout Socialism: EPA intends to remove ban on Asbestos

Asbestos is a group of fibrous, heat-resistant minerals used in manufactured goods, particularly building materials. According to the World Health Organization, "All types of asbestos cause lung cancer, mesothelioma, cancer of the larynx and ovary, and asbestosis (fibrosis of the lungs)."
In regards to my headline: Asbestos, which was produced in the then-Soviet town of Asbest, was mainly used as a means of buildings, in the GDR too. We still have an entire sector of removal of Asbestos in older buildings. It's a risky job that includes lengthy pauses because you cannot work too long in removing this poisonous material, because it could assail your lungs. Now imagine that we would again use this toxic trash in our buildings because the lobby-stricken EPA lowered regulations on it.
"The sheer number of lives cut short and families destroyed from asbestos exposure demand nothing less than an outright ban," Benesh said in a statement. "I can't think of an easier vote fo

Woman wrongly stripped off her pension commits suicide

The 81-year-old had been left reliant on her savings when the Department for Work and Pensions stopped paying her pension.
This is how a society looks like when people are withdrawn their most essential needs because of the law or whatever. You get your society's elders jumping off roofs because you want to save some of the taxpayer's money. Think about it.
An inquest into her death heard Mrs Worrall described as too proud to tell her family about her financial problems. The inquiry heard she had previously said she would throw herself off a quarry if she ended up with any major health or financial worries.

She had previously insisted to commit suicide this way because she know she probably might end up bankrupt. This is sick, simply sick.

He added: "It's a disgrace how this can happen in modern society and what concerns me is that this could happen to someone else."

Bolsonaro's government lost fight against SC and opposition to remove protection from rain forest

Taken together, this means that Bolsonaro’s signature action to start the rollback of indigenous territories and declare open season on Amazon deforestation – which needs both congressional and judicial approval to fly – looks to be crashing on takeoff. It’s also a glimmer of hope for indigenous and environmental protections in a country now led by a president openly hostile to Brazil’s indigenous peoples and Amazon rainforest – repositories of its vast social and biological diversity, and key to stabilizing the global climate.

On its first day in office, the Bolsonaro administration decided in executive action MP 870 to remove the authority to legally recognize and physically demarcate indigenous lands from the National Indian Foundation (FUNAI) and give it to the Ministry of Agriculture, Ranching and Supply (MAPA). MAPA is controlled by politicians affiliated with the anti-indigenous agriculture caucus of the c

US department of inferior to decrease regulations on offshore drilling

The changes reduce the amount of live data that operators are required to provide onshore monitors and the amount of safety test reporting that they must provide to the Interior Ministry, the U.S. government department responsible for the management of public lands and natural resources.

“The Drumpf administration, in other words, wants to hand over responsibility for industry safety to the very entity the commission warned against entrusting with that responsibility,” said Bob Deans, a spokesman for the advocacy group the Natural Resources Defense Council, according to the Times.

Private security company Blackwater to send 5,000 troops to Venezuela to topple Maduro government

Over the last several months, the sources said, Prince has sought investment and political support for such an operation from influential Drumpf supporters and wealthy Venezuelan exiles. In private meetings in the United States and Europe, Prince sketched out a plan to field up to 5,000 soldiers-for-hire on behalf of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido, according to two sources with direct knowledge of Prince’s pitch.
There we have it: The war of privately traded soldiers. Capitalism arise!
A Venezuelan exile close to the opposition agreed but said private contractors might prove useful, in the event Maduro’s government collapses, by providing security for a new administration in the aftermath.
Shouldn't war be a thing commenced and led by governments rather than private companies who only follow their own despicable intentions?
One of Prince’s key arguments, one source said, is

Two articles on Pete Buttigieg

1. CNBC:

“Mayor Pete will not be influenced by special-interest money, and we understand that making this promise is an important part of that commitment,” campaign manager Mike Schmuhl wrote in an email to supporters.
Good man, although I wished he did this move on his own, and didn't require the peering pressure of his progressive base. This should be an obvious choice you fell right away, not only months after running for president.
Buttigieg’s campaign has quickly gained steam, ascending from essentially zero name recognition to the top levels of the crowded Democratic field in a matter of weeks.
Well, name recognition is difficult when so many people wonder how your name is pronounced correctly. :D

Rochester Drug Cooperative CEO charged by Feds amid opioid crisis

“This prosecution is the first of its kind: executives of a pharmaceutical distributor and the distributor itself have been charged with drug trafficking, trafficking the same drugs that are fueling the opioid epidemic that is ravaging this country. Our Office will do everything in its power to combat this epidemic, from street-level dealers to the executives who illegally distribute drugs from their boardrooms,” U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said in a statement.

RDC was also charged with failing to properly report thousands of suspicious orders of oxycodone, fentanyl and other controlled substances to the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), officials said.

In the opioid industry, RDC is a middleman that buys controlled substances from manufacturers and sells them to individual pharmacies. As one of the nation's 10 largest drug distributors, it delivered to more than 1,300 pharmacies and took in over $1 billion in revenue during the relevant five-year pe

On Andrew Yang, presidential candidate for the end of the world as we expect it to be

The Boston crowd is mostly techies and earnest college kids. I catch a few whiffs of weed but nothing unreasonable given the venue. An iRobot engineer is holding up a “Humanity First” sign. (“People say immigrants are taking the jobs,” he tells me, “but really it’s me.”) Farther back, a man named Joe is selling bootleg Yang2020 hats, copies of the “vaporwave” hats used in Yang memes. According to his Etsy store, he’s made 10 sales online, with at least two more made in person at the rally.

He imagined “an army of smart, enterprising graduates building businesses in Detroit, New Orleans, Providence, Baltimore, Cleveland, St. Louis, and other cities that could use a boost.” In 2011, he donated $120,000 of his own money to start Venture For America (VFA), an accelerator meant to build new startups and new jobs in emerging cities outside of coastal startup hubs.

Billionaires' eagerness to contribute to Notre Dame de Paris' reconstruction draws backlash

The criticism comes after Francois Henri Pinault and Bernard Arnault — both billionaires — each pledged more than $100 million to the restoration efforts. The rivals have a history of one-upmanship.

A common position among critics: The mega-donations prove social problems could be quickly addressed if the wealthy were motivated to do so.

So when wealthy Frenchmen quickly pledged massive donations, some associated with the movement balked. “If they can give tens of millions to rebuild Notre Dame, then they should stop telling us there is no money to help with the social emergency,” The Washington Post quotes Philippe Martinez, head of the CGT trade union.
True - why not become a well-known philanthropist by donating money to welfare or by raising the company's salary so that one's own employees don't have to struggle making ends meet? Oh, yes, because it's up to them wherefore to spend money. If the... Show more...

 

The US Museum of Natural History to host rainforest-threatening Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro

While the event’s existence has been quietly making rounds for weeks, a story in Gothamist sparked a social media firestorm on Thursday. In response, the museum tweeted that it’s “deeply concerned” and “exploring our options,” while at the same time attempting to distance itself by emphasizing that the event is an external affair. The event remains on as of Friday afternoon, and a museum spokesperson told Earther it had “nothing further to add for today.”
I wonder what was their main purpose of inviting him in the first place. I don't believe that they did this accidentally, not having heard of his plans to remove protection from the Amazon region to open it for the Free Market to do what we all expect it to do once it gained access.
For scientists, it represents a slap in the face as the Bolsonaro government dismantles Brazilian research funding and attempts to speed up the destructi

Once upon a time, the IRS wanted to tax the rich

The IRS commissioner aimed to stanch the country’s losses with what he proclaimed would be “a game-changing strategy.” In short order, Charles Rettig, then a high-powered tax lawyer and today President Donald Drumpf’s IRS commissioner, warned that the squad was conducting “the audits from hell.”

For starters, they can devote seemingly limitless resources to hiring the best legal and accounting talent. Such taxpayers tend not to steamroll tax laws; they employ complex, highly refined strategies that seek to stretch the tax code to their advantage. It can take years for IRS investigators just to understand a transaction and deem it to be a violation.

Because the audits are private — IRS officials can go to prison if they divulge taxpayer information — details of the often epic paper battles between the rich and the tax collectors are sparse, with little in the public record. Attorneys are also loath to talk about their clients’ t

Motel 6 (accidentally? intentionally?) handed guest list over to ICE, now charged by state of Washington

The chain has settled a lawsuit brought by the state of Washington over the controversial policy of seven of its hotels in that state between 2015 and 2017. The company has also said it will stop the practice of handing over guest information without a subpoena or warrant, unless it believes someone is in imminent danger.
So, they seriously did this on purpose, as a common practice? Seriously?
Motel 6, as part of the agreement did not admit to wrongdoing, but the consent decree it signed included language reading “Motel 6 seeks to take corporate responsibility for past actions that adversely affected some of its customers, compensate those individuals who were harmed, and protect guest information with the integrity it deserves.”

Prior to Washington’s lawsuit, the chain reportedly followed the same practices in Arizona. A Sept. 13, 2017 report in the Phoenix New Times said ICE had arrested 20

Trump's undoing of school meal standards might be sued by states

Both lawsuits center around a new rule issued by the Drumpf administration’s U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) which slashed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act’s (HHFKA) whole-grain-rich standard, meaning that now only half of the grain-based foods served in school meals have to be whole-grain-rich. Previously, all grain foods served to kids having to contain at least half whole grains.

In [rolling back school meal standards,] the USDA unlawfully departed from Congress’s unambiguous directive that it determine school meal requirements based on nutrition science, and instead relied on impermissible and unsound extra-statutory factors such as students’ perceived taste preferences for less healthy foods and some schools’ desire for operational “flexibility.”

How corporate interests frame new laws


Because I couldn't read the article yet, but still have a slight idea of what it may be about, I would like to ask you: Does anyone else have problems opening this link? It seems like it was deleted, because whenever I try to open it, it redirects me to the website itself. Still, there may be a similar article that has been published by the affiliate site The Rochester Democrat & Chonicle. Maybe it's the same article under a different header? I don't know.

YouTube experiences a hard time combatting extremism and conspiracy theories

The massive “library,” generated by users with little editorial oversight, is bound to have untrue nonsense. Instead, YouTube’s problem is that it allows the nonsense to flourish. And, in some cases, through its powerful artificial intelligence system, it even provides the fuel that lets it spread.

YouTube still has struggled to explain any new corporate vision to the public and investors – and sometimes, to its own staff. Five senior personnel who left YouTube and Google in the last two years privately cited the platform’s inability to tame extreme, disturbing videos as the reason for their departure.

Somewhere along the last decade, he added, YouTube prioritized chasing profits over the safety of its users. “We may have been hemorrhaging money,” he said. “But at least dogs riding skateboards never killed anyone.”

Workers of the World, Unite - on GitHub!

The original anonymous developer first posted the project on the Chinese social platform V2EX, saying that such an intense work schedule kept them from “resting and having time to speak to family members.”
Pretty Communist, this Chinese "people's" republic, eh? No?

Yes, that's what Marx had in mind when he wrote his famous "Kapital": Not as a solution, but as the literal problem of what the workers had to stand up against.

Ein Mann, sie alle zu enteignen

Zum Hauptfeind haben Taheri und 80 Mitstreiter, die sich auf ein Netzwerk von 200 Mieterinitiativen stützen, die Deutsche Wohnen erklärt. Der börsennotierte Konzern besitzt bundesweit 160 000 Wohnungen, darunter 112 000 in Berlin. Gerade gab er für 2018 einen Gewinn von 1,9 Milliarden Euro bekannt.

Review on «Private Government», by Elizabeth Anderson

But contemporary conditions make simply up and quitting unfeasible for a significant slice of the population — namely, those who are already the most vulnerable. If you need a job as a condition of probation, or if your visa is tied to your employer, or if you’re an immigrant working without documentation, “exit” is impossible without imprisonment or exile.
Oh well, but you can refer such some problems - those for immigrants - to the state: You only need the visa to enter a country, but the company probably doesn't care where you come from as long as you're capable of doing your job well. One can only wonder what would happen to you when the state didn't exist and the company ruled all over you.
As David Graeber makes abundantly clear in his book Bullshit Jobs, the “bureaucracy” we’ve been trained to hate and to associate with the state is at least as common in the corporate world. Going to the DMV kinda sucks, but is deal

On income equality and Wall Street bonuses


(Because the Wall Street brokers contribute as much as burger flippers do, right? Seriously: The discrepancy between the incomes of respective professions is horrible. Compared to one another, burger flippers actually do more ofr a healthy, functioning society than brokers who ivnest money in companies.)
By comparison, the federal minimum wage has increased about 116 percent during the same period, according to an analysis from the Institute for Policy Studies, a left-leaning research center that used the comptroller's latest data. If the minimum wage had grown at the same pace as Wall Street bonuses, fast-food workers and other low-wage workers would earn a baseline wage of $33.51 an hour, the group said.

As for why Wall Street bonuses fell in 2018, it's not because banks were less profitable last year, New York Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli said in a statement. In fact, Wall Street recorded an 11 percent increase in pretax profits for the broker-dealer operations of New York Stock Exchange member firms, ... Show more...

 

Alabama ranked fifth in environmental protection


(The article also includes a map in which you can check how many toxic wastes your state omits in favour of your decreasing wealth. Just in case you're curious to see.)
Alabama had the fifth highest volume of toxic releases into waterways in 2017 with 11.2 million pounds, and the fifth most toxic substances released into the air with 27.1 million pounds.

Just in case you thought that this high ranking was good. It isn't.

The analysis was published this month in the EPA’s Toxics Release Inventory, a massive collection of legal pollution reports filed with the agency from more than 21,000 industrial facilities across the country. The reports lay out how much of certain chemicals are emitted to the air, land and water from manufacturing operations, electric utilities, as well as facilities like hazardous materials landfills that accept certain toxic substances.

However, take away land releases, which include the heavy mining waste, and Alabama and other southeastern states be... Show more...

 

Coke Company confeeses to produce more than 3.3 million tonnes of plastic garbage


The figures – which the company has refused in the past to disclose – reveal the amount of plastic packaging Coca-Cola produced in 2017. The company did not reveal the scale of its bottle production but when its packaging footprint is translated into 500ml PET plastic bottles, it amounts to about 108bn bottles a year, more than a fifth of the world’s PET bottle output of about 500bn bottles a year.

“We applaud the companies that are publishing this data and encourage all companies that make and use plastics to disclose their plastics footprint.”

“Ambition levels must continue to rise to make real strides in addressing global plastic pollution by 2025, and moving from commitment to action is crucial.”

Romania is sponsor of Romanian EU presidency


In an open letter, the NGO called on the President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, and Romanian prime minister Viorica Dancila, to immediately stop the partnership with Coca-Cola. Foodwatch finds it “completely inappropriate that in a time of major obesity problems and additional disease burdens such as type 2 diabetes” the Presidency of the Council of the European Union is sponsored by Coca-Cola.

Romania took over the rotating Presidency of the EU Council on January 1, 2019, and will hold it for six months. A list of partners of the Romanian EU Presidency is available here.
