Some Apple, Tesla suppliers suspend production in China amid power pinch – Reuters

Several Apple Inc (AAPL.O) and Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) suppliers have suspended production at some Chinese factories for a number of days to comply with tighter energy consumption policies, putting supply chains at risk in the peak season for electronics goods.

Fuel supply: UK suspends competition law to get petrol to forecourts – BBC

The government is to suspend competition law to allow oil firms to target fuel deliveries at petrol stations following recent panic buying.

Officials said the move would make it easier for companies to share information and prioritise parts of the country most at need.  It follows days of long queues at the pumps, after fears of disruption to the fuel supply sparked panic buying.  But a minister said there were no plans to bring in the Army to drive tankers.

China’s latest crypto crackdown is its toughest yet – Quartz

In China, the crypto market has been under constant threat, but it’s never fully been shut down. That may be about to change.

China’s regulators clarified on Friday (Sept. 24) that cryptocurrency transactions and mining are illegal, the country’s strongest stance against the non-government-issued currencies to date. In a statement, the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) said the rules are necessary to “maintain national security and social stability.”

US airlines are planning to unnecessarily burn 20,000 tons of CO2 per day because of FAA rules – Quartz

A proposed rule change from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has prompted airlines to change their schedules and dramatically increase their carbon emissions by burning millions of gallons of jet fuel. It’s the result of airlines scheduling unneeded, extra flights out of the seven most congested US airports to protect their access to those airports into the future.

The rule governs how airlines use their assigned takeoff and landing slots at the US’s most congested airports. Data from aviation analytics firm Cirium shows a bump in scheduled flights on Oct. 30—the day the rule change is set to take effect—even though consumer demand for air travel is falling amid a resurgence of Covid-19 outbreaks across the US.

    Two top Pathologists reveal astonishing results of investigation into ten deaths linked to the C19 Vaccines

    "Two top Pathologists reveal astonishing results of investigation into ten deaths linked to the Covid-19 Vaccines – “We’ve never seen anything like it…”"

    https://theexpose.uk/2021/09/26/two-top-pathologists-reveal-astonishing-results-of-investigation-into-ten-deaths-linked-to-the-covid-19-vaccines-weve-never-seen-anything-like-it/

    On Monday September 20th, two top pathologists held a press conference in Germany to reveal their findings of an investigation into ten deaths linked to the Covid-19 vaccines, and what they revealed is shocking.

    ...

    However, what they found astonishing, is the similarities among the deaths that they concluded were linked to vaccination.

    In three cases, they found rare autoimmune diseases; one of them so rare that they only discovered it when they looked closely at the digitised image.

    They were Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune-triggered hypothyroidism; leukoclastic vasculitis, an inflammatory reaction in the capillaries that leads to skin bleeding; and Sjögren’s syndrome, an inflammation of the salivary and lacrimal glands.

    Although deaths with suspected vaccine reactions are far from a representative sample of the population, three autoimmune diseases in a total of ten is a strikingly high rate.

    The most striking finding, however, related to lymphocytes.

    “The lymphocytes are running amok in all organs,” Professor Lang called it.

    Not only did he show accumulations of lymphocytes in a wide variety of tissues, from the heart muscle to the kidney, liver, spleen, and uterus; he also showed images in which the tissue was massively attacked as a result, and a whole series of lymphocyte follicles, which are small, developing lymph nodes in completely the wrong place, for example in lung tissue."

    Has anyone else seen this?  I don't have the medical/scientific background to assess it, but would love to hear what others here think about it!  (Sorry if someone has already posted elsewhere).

    A huge number of the population has Hashimoto's. I have Hashimotos, since I was 17 years old. It affects about 20% of the population, more women than men.

    You Can't Attend Classes Unless You Are "Vaxxed"

    You can't attend classes if you are "vaxxed".  LOL.  Maybe a third or fourth "jab" would be the magic number (or maybe "seven" would be more propitious for some).

    How common is Hashimoto’s disease?

    The number of people who have Hashimoto’s disease in the United States is unknown. However, the disease is the most common cause of hypothyroidism, which affects about 5 in 100 Americans.1

    Epidemiology

    This disorder is thought to be the most common cause of primary hypothyroidism in North America; as a cause of nonendemic goiter, it is among the most common.[41] Hashimoto's thyroiditis affects about 5% of Caucasians at some point in their lives.[4] In the U.S., it affects fewer African-Americans, but is linked to greater mortality in the African-American population.[48] It is also less frequent in Asian populations.[49] About 1.0 to 1.5 in 1000 people have this disease at any time.

    1.25/1000=0.125% prevalence.

    NZ PM slammed big time on FB

    https://www.infonews.co.nz/news.cfm?id=122780

    The New Zealand Prime Minister's facebook page is still reeling from a PR (public relations) nightmare, after a post that encouraged the public to talk about vaccine side effects exploded.

    On Saturday 25 September the NZ testimonials facebook page, which allowed members to report vaccine injuries direcly and had over 17,000 members, was shut down. The following day, Jacinda Ardern addressed the elephant in the room on her facebook page about the growing narrative of vaccine hesistancy, spurred by people sharing stories of the negative side effects of the vaccine including myocarditis, shingles, blood clots, heart attacks, seizures and death. ...

    ... One contributor who pulled an all nighter stated “New Zealanders essentially took down the government over it. Whilst she may have had Aucklanders in lockdown for two months, bankrupted businesses with her behaviour and now discriminated against people who are unvaxxed from attending events, I don’t think any indoor concert or game could have rivalled a ring side seat at last nights event. I ran out of popcorn." ...

    Go Kiwis!!

    Chernobyl radiation rising inexplicably

    https://historyofyesterday.com/chernobyls-blown-up-reactor-4-just-woke-up-74bedd5fc92d

    The nuclear disaster that occurred in 1986 will forever be remembered, but the world will soon have a reminder of the event as the zone for some reason (yet unexplained by scientists)is becoming more radioactive. For those who may not be aware of the incident here is an article to get you up to speed.

    “Chernobyl will never be a problem”

    Underneath reactor 4 there is still nuclear fuel that is active and which will take around 20,000 years for it to deplete. The uranium is too radioactive for anyone to live in the city and since the incident, the European Union had created a shield around the reactor which should not allow for the radioactive rays to come out.

    “Chernobyl officials presumed any criticality risk would fade when the massive New Safe Confinement (NSC) was slid over the Shelter in November 2016.”

    “The €1.5 billion structure was meant to seal off the Shelter so it could be stabilized and eventually dismantled.”

    However, many other parts around Chernobyl have also been affected due to prolonged exposure, some more than others, and many of them have not been contained as they were not presenting any major radioactive activity until now. Neil Hyatt, a nuclear chemist from the University of Sheffield had mentioned that there is a possibility for the uranium fuel to reignite on its own.

    Hyatt also offered a simple explanation on how this is possible, just like charcoal can reignite in a barbeque, so can nuclear materials that have once been ignited. He as well as a handful of nuclear chemists have mentioned previously the possibility of the uranium from Chernobyl to reignite, but the scientists from Ukraine that are responsible for managing the nuclear activity within the vicinity never really listened, until now.…
