  • Down 50%, Is Novavax Stock a Great Buy Now? This coronavirus vaccine drugmaker developed a solid vaccine but has encountered huge logistical problems

    Over the past year, Novavax (NASDAQ:NVAX) stock has swung between extremely overvalued and extremely undervalued, with a share price ranging from a low of $40.50 to a high of $331.68. It's currently down more than 50% from those all-time highs, which it reached in February. Investors were thrilled that the company had developed a solid coronavirus vaccine candidate, but were then shocked by its logistical problems. Is now the time to buy the dip? What happened? Novavax created its coronavirus vaccine candidate, NVX-CoV2373, using genetic materials that mimic the coronavirus's spike protein, along with an immunoadjuvant (a substance that enhances...
  • If The Trucks Stop Running, It Won’t Just Be A Gasoline Shortage That We Are Facing…

    Our enemies now understand that you can completely paralyze America by taking out just a handful of pipelines. Even though all of us knew that any gasoline shortages were just going to be temporary, the shut down of the Colonial Pipeline caused a frenzied wave of “panic buying” all along the east coast. But if something caused the gasoline to stop flowing for a longer period of time, not being able to fill up our vehicles would be among the least of our problems. Trucks need gasoline too, and if our trucks stopped running for an extended period it would...
  • This is NOT a drill: Countdown to mass FAMINE has begun, and people you know will starve and die

    The engineered mass famine in America is now under way, with the deep state sabotage of the Colonial Pipeline already causing trucking to suffer fuel shortages across Southeast states, impairing some food deliveries. If this pipeline is not fully restored in the next 72 hours or so, food shelves in some areas will go empty and panic will take hold across the populations there. Already, over a thousand gas stations have run out of gas, and people are so desperate to stock up on gasoline that the federal government had to issue a warning that tells people it’s unsafe to...
  • A major chlorine shortage is set to spoil summertime fun in the swimming pool

    The worst chlorine shortage the country has ever seen is set to rock this summer’s pool season. “It’s been a concern for us,” said Cody Saliture, owner of Texas Pool Professionals, which has been in business for 17 years. The Rockwall, Texas-based company services 200 clients weekly, and Saliture said he recently began to stockpile chlorine tablets. He’s also been looking for different chemicals to keep pools sanitized and his customers happy. “We’re looking for anything that we can get that we don’t have here in North Texas,” Saliture said. “We’ve been to about six states and 15 cities [for...
  • Why Trump doesn't just 'Send in the Troops.'

    Townhall ^ | September 3, 2020 | Kurt Schlichter
    There are a lot of solid conservatives frustrated and appalled by the Biden Riots, and a lot of those folks wonder why Donald Trump doesn’t just make it all stop – you know, sort of like Grandpa Badfinger implicitly promises he will do if we restore the garbage liberal establishment, except with military force. “Call up the Guard,” right? But what folks do not understand are the practical problems with Trump using troops (sending federal law enforcement officers presents similar problems, but also a unique and big one – there just aren’t as many federal cops as there are soldiers)....

    the economic collapse ^ | 8/31/2020 | Michael Snyder
    I’m just going to be very blunt with you. Things have already gotten quite crazy, but they are going to get even crazier. Global food supplies have already gotten tight, but they are going to get even tighter. When even the UN starts using the word “biblical” to describe the famine that the world is facing, that is a sign that the hour is very late. Thankfully, we are not facing famine in the short-term here in the United States, but “temporary shortages” of certain items have already been popping up, and food prices are aggressively shooting higher. Earlier today...

    Leaders within the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation have approved a public-private partnership to reconstruct a portion of Interstate 81. PennDOT’s P3 Board approved the project, which will involve the reconstruction of a 4.5-mile section of the route near Wilkes-Barre, on Dec. 4. Wilkes-Barre, the seat of Luzerne County in northeastern Pennsylvania, is 20 miles southwest of Scranton. The project will involve widening a portion of I-81 to three lanes in both directions, realigning 2.5 miles of southbound interstate and replacing eight bridges. Other safety measures include eliminating a left-hand exit and improving a substandard weave distance between two routes that...

    Operation Nickel GrassExcerpt: The Arab states had trained well and Moscow had supplied equipment on a colossal scale, including 600 advanced surface-to-air missiles, 300 MiG-21 fighters, 1,200 tanks, and hundreds of thousands of tons of consumable war materiel. By Monday, the Israelis were reeling as missiles supplied by the Soviet Union took a heavy toll on aircraft and tanks. The IDF was running out of artillery shells and the Israeli Air Force warned that its capability to sustain combat would be exhausted within the week...

  • Retail-to-Industrial Conversions: Revolution or Niche Trend?

    JD Supra ^ | October 10, 2019 | Daniel Rottenberg and James Shipe
    It may have been unthinkable ten to fifteen years ago, but the shift in consumer shopping patterns from brick-and-mortar stores to online platforms has resulted in the emergence of retail-to-industrial conversions over the past few years. With lower demand for retail space in many markets, several developers and major retailers have seized on the opportunity to convert defunct or underperforming malls and big-box stores into warehouse and logistics space for their operations. The trend has been most noticeable in regions where the median household income is below the national average, offering a workforce that demands relatively lower wages, and where...

  • This Is Why Woodstock 50 Was Just Canceled

    08/13/2019 8:00:47 PM PDT · by Tolerance Sucks Rocks · 57 replies
    Of the rock festivals of the sixties, the Woodstock Music and Art Fair was by far the most famous. Held on a 600-acre dairy farm near Bethel, N.Y. on August 15–17, 1969, the festival is the iconic representation of the drug-addled culture and sexual revolution that upended American life. This August marks the fiftieth anniversary of the era-defining event. Some have called for celebrating with another concert. The occasion is hardly a cause for celebration—so many of the cultural changes after Woodstock had catastrophic consequences. Most do not know that the concert was a disaster—even from an organizational point of...

    NEW YORK - Every hour that one of The Advance Group’s trucks is stuck in highway or bridge traffic, it costs the moving company around $200. And with 40 trucks trying to get into Manhattan daily and contending with the New York metro area’s deteriorating infrastructure, the price of lost time runs up quickly. “Getting to and from a job site is not really billable to a client,” says Anthony Parziale, president of The Advance Group, based in the suburb of Farmingdale.
  • Legacy Parkway’s truck ban and low speed limit will disappear without action by the Utah Legislature

    The Salt Lake Tribune ^ | December 9, 2018 | Lee Davidson
    Legacy Parkway in Davis County is a different sort of freeway. It bans trucks. The speed limit is just 55 mph. Its mere two lanes in each direction have rubberized pavement to dampen sound — all designed to help adjacent wetlands and wildlife. But that could change dramatically in a little more than a year, on Jan. 1, 2020. That is when a 15-year deal expires, initially drawn up to end lawsuits by environmental groups against the highway. The truck ban will disappear that day, and the state is then free to raise the speed limit or look at widening...

    At the risk of being called cold or harsh, let me begin by saying every American has a right to his/her opinion on just about any issue. Including guns. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let me add this: the people playing partisan politics on the graves of the 17 innocent dead people from Douglas High School are despicable. I don’t care what age they are. Over the last couple of weeks, a variety of conservative voices have gotten in trouble for insinuating that the anti-gun protesters coming out of Douglas High School seem far too practiced...

    Several key Central Texas highway projects — including expansions of U.S. 183 in North Austin, U.S. 290 in Southwest Austin and Interstate 35 through the heart of the area — are once again in limbo after Gov. Greg Abbott and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick last week staked out firm anti-toll positions. “Right now there’s a billion dollars worth of projects on hold, between 183 and Oak Hill,” said Mike Heiligenstein, executive director of the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority. The I-35 project, estimated to cost $8 billion to add toll lanes and other improvements from Round Rock to Buda, was...

    The holiday season will be a busy one for Amazon, and as 2017 draw to a close, it could be said this entire year has been a big one for the e-commerce giant, from its acquisition of Whole Foods to the HQ2 race and its expansion in its hometown, Seattle. But behind the company’s growth and expansion, and future plans, lies an immense, intricate logistics network that enables it to offer incredible delivery times to every corner of the country. The company’s footprint is pretty wild. According to Amazon, the company now operates more than 75 fulfillment centers and 25...

    Waymo Trucks will someday drive themselves out of warehouses and cruise down freeways without the aid of humans or even a driver’s cab — about that there seems little disagreement. The question is how soon that day gets here. And while the answers vary — technologists, not surprisingly, are more bullish than truckers — billions of dollars and a growing parade of companies, from tiny start-ups to the biggest trucking operations, are betting it will be here sooner than most people think. This year, companies and investors are on pace to put just over $1 billion into self-driving and other...

    S. Korea, U.S. in massive military logistics training 2017/04/12 09:30 SEOUL, April 12 (Yonhap) -- South Korean and U.S. troops have been staging a major combined exercise focused on enhancing logistics capabilities, the U.S. Pacific Command (PACOM) said Wednesday, as North Korea renewed its warning of "catastrophic consequences" over Washington's military pressure. The allies kicked off their largest-ever joint logistics maneuvering training Monday on the east coast of South Korea, involving nearly 1,200 South Korean troops and around 2,500 American soldiers, including those from the U.S. and other bases in the Asia-Pacific region. It is to run through April 21....
