    Chamath Palihapitiya, a part-owner and director of the NBA’s Golden State Warriors and the venture capitalist founder and CEO of Social Capital, offered the "very hard ugly truth" about China’s human rights abuses against Uyghur Muslims in a podcast interview. Palihapitiya appeared on the "All-In Podcast" on Saturday. He made his remarks about Uyghur Muslims after his co-host Jason Calacanis praised President Biden for his decision to ban the import of goods made through forced Uyghur labor. "Nobody cares about what’s happening to the Uyghurs, OK? You bring it up because you really care and I think it’s nice that...

    Imagine you're a White House staffer, or even Joe Biden himself. Suffering from a serious case of bad political news, you decide to tune into CNN's New Day, assured of some chicken soup for the soul. But, wait a second! They're talking of Democrats "panicked" over Biden's "abysmal, spectacular, failures." They're rolling an SNL clip mocking Biden over approval ratings so low, they're in "power-save" mode. You shake the remote: did you unintentionally tune into that horrible right-wing network? This can't be happening! But, sadly for the Biden's folks, there was no mistake. That actually was New Day, absolutely taking...

    As the world was buffeted by a coronavirus tsunami leaving forced lockdowns, supply-chain problems, economic upheaval, and poverty in its wake, globalist financial elites “have had a terrific pandemic” according to a report released Monday. The world’s 10 richest men have more than doubled their fortunes to $1.9 trillion, at a rate of $1.6 billion a day, over the past 12 months, proving elites have largely been spared the misery and financial ruin inflicted on so many by endless enforced lockdowns. A confederation of charities that focus on alleviating global poverty, Oxfam said members of the globalist financial elites saw...

    Norway’s petroleum revenues reached a record-high in 2021, thanks to rising commodity prices, growing global demand, and high production from 94 offshore fields, the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) said on Thursday. Stable high production from Norway’s continental shelf is expected to continue over the next few years, the authority said in its Shelf 2021 overview presented today. In the fourth quarter of 2021, the export value of Norway’s oil and gas exceeded $11.5 billion (100 billion Norwegian crowns) in each of the months, three times the export value in the same period of 2020, according to the directorate’s presentation.

    It is a “waste of time” to keep vaccinating people against the (CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, the former chairman of Britain’s Vaccines Taskforce has said.Dr. Clive Dix, who played a key role in helping pharmaceutical firms create the COVID-19 vaccines, told LBC radio on Jan. 16: “The Omicron variant is a relatively mild virus. And to just keep vaccinating people and thinking of doing it again to protect the population is, in my view, now a waste of time.”Dix said the focus now should be on protecting vulnerable people, such as those over 60, 2 percent of whom remain...

    Kansas City, Missouri Mayor Quinton Lucas (D) on Sunday said he is facing two challenges as his municipality battles COVID-19: misinformation regarding vaccinations and opposition from the political right when it comes to mask mandates and other mitigation practices. Asked by moderator Margaret Brennan on CBS’s “Face the Nation” what is holding him back from enacting a citywide mask mandate to tame the spread of COVID-19, Lucas pointed to the “political challenge” he has received from the state of Missouri.

    Yahoo! News ^ | January 16, 2022 | by Mike Bebernes
    Over the past three years, dozens of cities across the country have banned natural gas hookups in newly constructed buildings as part of a growing campaign to reduce carbon emissions from homes. The movement scored a major victory last month, when New York City’s outgoing Mayor Bill de Blasio signed into law a ban on gas hookups in new buildings. Though new laws apply to the entire home, the policy debate often focuses on one room in particular: the kitchen. Gas stoves account for a relatively small share of the emissions released by a typical household, but they’ve become a...

    Diners are feeling a sense of déjà vu as restaurants are again selling food for takeout only, closing dining-room seating or shortening hours as the Omicron variant of Covid-19 spreads. Chains such as Starbucks Corp. and Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. said they are temporarily limiting operations at individual stores or regions as they face labor shortages and a rise in Covid-19 cases. Other restaurant operators said more of their staff are testing positive for the coronavirus in the Omicron surge than during the growth of the earlier Delta variant and are voluntarily closing for stretches as a result. "It’s one...

    It has been a little more than a month since the United Nations climate meeting at Glasgow, yet global use of fossil fuels has increased rapidly. For instance, U.S. President Joe Biden cancelled domestic oil projects and vowed to stop funding for international fossil fuel projects. But as fuel prices rose, Biden responded to his self-induced energy insecurity by releasing 50 million barrels of oil reserves and even called for an increase in domestic oil production. Within a span of a few months, the U.S. president went from being a climate savior to a climate villain. Though many may classify...

The so-called ‘sleepy chicken’ trend sees users concocting their very own chicken dish, braised in a cold and flu remedy. Users refers to the recipe as ‘Nyquil chicken’ or ‘sleepy chicken’, and the UK equivalent to Nyquil would be a product like Night Nurse.
