No.

Blacks represent 24% of the population, but they account for nearly all of the violent crimes committed in the city. Those videos are just a small sample.


I find that statement very hard to believe. What percent is nearly all of the violent crime? 95%? 98%?

Looks like Captain Kirk is actually going into space. Shatner has a ride with Bezos. I think he should wear the Star Trek logo. Not sure about the form fitting shirt, as he's going to look pretty lumpy at his current weight.


Heís 90 years old.

Probably a one way trip.

You find it hard to believe?

Scroll through that endless collection of NYPD videos and see how many of those violent felons are Black. 90%? 95%?

The formatting for YouTube videos no longer works, or has been eliminated. This is a direct link.

La times article. Veterinarians have a high suicide rate. Combination of stressors of euthanizing pets, dealing with a lot of people who donít have enough money nor pet insurance, and a relatively new thing of becoming a target on social media from some owners lashing out when things donít go well.

China's power supply crunch, that has shut factories across the country, may pose a much bigger threat to the economy than the debt crisis at Evergrande Group, prompting investors to shun industries vulnerable to power shortages such as steelmaking and construction.

China is facing a power squeeze from a shortage of coal supplies, tougher emissions standards and strong demand from manufacturers and industry that have triggered widespread curbs on usage. Factories have stopped operations due to power shortages and government mandates to meet energy and carbon reduction goals.

Goldman Sachs and Nomura have revised down projections for Chinese economic growth this year as a result. Shares in Chinese chemical producers, carmakers and shipping companies have tumbled, while renewable energy stocks have soared.

Investors believe the potential scale of the problems could dwarf the any fallout from liquidity troubles at property developer Evergrande, with liabilities of $305 billion, that roiled property stocks and bonds this month.

"The Evergrande crisis has been unfolding for quite some time, and I think the risks will be defused in a targeted way," said Yuan Yuwei, hedge fund manager at Water Wisdom Asset Management.

He said the electricity outages would break the supply-demand equilibrium, dealing a direct blow to consumption and the real economy. "The fallout is more likely to be out of control," Yuan said.

Yuan's current investment stance is to bet on hydropower companies such as SDIC Power Holdings and Sichuan Chuantou Energy Co, while shorting steelmakers and coal-fired power makers.

Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh Mcenany said on Fox that Heels-Up Harris is such an embarrassment to the White House and to the vice presidency that she will never be president. Beijing Joe will replace her with somebody else before he resigns. That never even occurred to me but of course that's what's going to happen. They're not going to let a lunatic giggling moron like Harris be president. She cannot put two coherent sentences together. She has that embarrassing nervous laugh that so many dumb women have that is almost impossible to break them of. They learned early on that if you cannot sound smart sound funny instead. So she giggles and laughs even at serious questions. It's so much a part of who she is now she can't help herself. Not to mention she's not qualified to run an ice cream truck let alone be president. She was so pitiful during the campaign that she would have lost the primary in her own state if she hadn't dropped out.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.
