    Filed under Business, Economy, Energy, Open thread at March 29th, 2019 - 2:50 pm

    It’s an open thread.

    Today I went out to take some pictures of Progress. These are photos of the construction site of the Cracker Plant that Royal Dutch Shell is building in Beaver County, PA. It’s being built here because of Fracing. We are now able to bring up a ridiculous amount of natural gas quite easily and it is changing the local economy for the better.

    It is difficult to capture the sheer size of this endeavor.

    This image was taken from across the Ohio river:

    This image was taken from a higher vantage point 180 degrees from the above shot:

    That crane on the far left is one of the largest cranes in the world. it was brought up the Mississippi River and then up the Ohio on barges.

    The opening of the cracker plant is expected to have a major economic impact on both the immediate area and the Pittsburgh metropolitan area in general. The plant is expected to create 6,000 construction jobs to build the site and 600 permanent jobs for employees working at the plant.[2] It is also expected to expand neighboring Center Township, which had already seen a hotel construction boom in anticipation of the plant, as well as keep the Beaver Valley Mall afloat.[17] A building dating to the 1920s in nearby Rochester that once served as a luxury hotel is being restored as such due to demand of the plant,[18] while parts of the Northern Lights Shopping Center in Economy is being demolished for redevelopment, partially due to the plant.[19] In 2018 Mount Airy Casinos won the licensing to build a satellite casino just 12 miles North of the cracker plant, planning to open in 2020.

    The plant is also expected to spur long-delayed highway expansion projects. The Southern Beltway, which had already confirmed would be extending its second leg in 2020 from U.S. Route 22 to Interstate 79, moved the project up a year solely as a result of the proposed plant.[20] In West Virginia, Interstate 68 has been proposed to be extended from Morgantown (where it currently terminates with I-79) to Moundsville (where it would terminate with West Virginia Route 2 just south of Wheeling) in response to Marcellus fracking as well as the proposed plant.[21]

    Several trade unions are now offering free training to those who want to become skilled tradesmen and women; KDKA’s Jon Delano reports.

    The above articles do not even begin to scratch the surface of the positive economic impact that is going on here. To create real wealth one must produce from raw materials, extract it from the ground and make a useful product. Each maufacturing job creates 11 service industry jobs…and this is only the beginning, thanks to Fracing.

      nope. No boom. There’s no way the HOA would let me put that thing anywhere. All we have is a deck that, with the furniture already on it, doesn’t allow enough clearance. Probably not enough clearance to the ‘floor’ either.

      If you have 14 minutes and a very stiff drink, this is freaking hilarious. Some snowflake, Nick, calls into a radio show in Tennessee to bitch about Mueller (“Putin has something on him”) and Trump (“it’s impossible for me to find a job in Trump’s capitalist economy”)

      My degree would be much more marketable in a socialist economy.

      But Nick, this IS a capitalist economy, you knew that when you went for that humanities degree.

      Story of most murderous people of all time revealed in ancient DNA

      https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg24132230-200-story-of-most-murderous-people-of-all-time-revealed-in-ancient-dna/

      The migrants’ ultimate source was a group of livestock herders called the Yamnaya who occupied the Eurasian steppe north of the Black Sea and the Caucasus mountains. Britain wasn’t their only destination. Between 5000 and 4000 years ago, the Yamnaya and their descendants colonised swathes of Europe, leaving a genetic legacy that persists to this day. Their arrival coincided with profound social and cultural changes. Burial practices shifted dramatically, a warrior class appeared, and there seems to have been a sharp upsurge in lethal violence. “I’ve become increasingly convinced there must have been a kind of genocide,”

      This is long but worth it. One person’s experience with China moving into developing economies. He’s a Wall Street/finance type, so his perspective is really interesting.

      Modernization in China isn’t the enclave of a middle-class modernity, as in India, but a movement that reaches into the capillaries of society. Entrepreneurs in Chinese villages connect to the world market through mobile broadband, sell their products and buy supplies on the Alibaba platform, and obtain credit from microfinancing platforms. Information and capital flow down to the roots of the economy and products flow back up to the world market.

      China now proposes to export its model to Southeast Asia, Central Asia, Latin America, parts of the Middle East and Africa. This involves a Faustian bargain of sorts; the same technologies that have lifted billions of East Asians out of dire poverty and the ever-present risk of starvation into prosperity and economic security can also give dictatorial regimes previously unimagined tools for social control. China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has a $1 trillion war chest for infrastructure investments and export loans.

      In making such offers, Chinese planners are thinking a generation ahead.

      How the fight for the next communications ecosystem could make a world dependent on Chinese technology, Chinese software, Chinese e-commerce, Chinese venture capital, and the Chinese market

      Federal Court Strikes Down California Gun Magazine Ban

      The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California on Friday afternoon struck down California’s ban on firearm magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.

      Judge Roger T. Benitez concluded in the case of Virginia Duncan, et. al. v. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra that the restriction on magazine round capacity in the state of California “as amended by Proposition 63, burdens the core of the Second Amendment by criminalizing the acquisition and possession of these magazines that are commonly held by law-abiding citizens for defense of self, home, and state.”

      Judge Benitez continues, “The statute hits at the center of the Second Amendment and its burden is severe. When the simple test of Heller is applied, a test that persons of common intelligence can understand, the statute fails and is an unconstitutional abridgment. It criminalizes the otherwise lawful acquisition and possession of common magazines holding more than 10 rounds – magazines that law-abiding responsible citizens would choose for self-defense at home. It also fails the strict scrutiny test because the statute is not narrowly tailored – it is not tailored at all.”

      i read the article. twice

      he’s painting a best case scenario for a race who hasnt had an original idea since gunpowder and who had such a horrible amount of debt and graft that no one with money beleives their lies anymore.

      the author is not an economist (he is a classical music critic) and misses the underlying macro and micro economics of too many thing to mention.

      yes. But what I got out of it was the BLATANT openness about taking over the world. Most regimes are somewhat modest about their aspirations for global hegemony, if for no other reason than to not piss people off. But not these guys. This is their manifest destiny and there are no rules. And it IS disturbing how they’re going about it.

      “Capitalism Plus”.
      It is of course a heavy dose of Socialism and cites a study showing people in mostly Scandanvia being happier than us. What he ignores is that those people live in a socialized welfare state funded by a capitalist economy.
      They have no defense budget to speak of and would have to depend on us.

      They are in the streets in London – or were. Why they aren’t lynching every last one of their politicians is beyond me. They still may. For background/insight, etc., try the broadsheet for the ‘Leavers’ (it’s nominally UKIP, but the editors aren’t fond of them either)

      https://independencedaily.co.uk/

      The lead article “Your Daily Brexit Betrayal” (written by my friend and fellow dog mom, Viv) is a good backgrounder

      One of the top 50 reasons I’d like Brennan to be thrown in prison during early swamp draining:

      In the summer of 2014, the CIA’s inspector general concluded that the CIA had “improperly” spied on US Senate staffers who were researching the agency’s black history of torture. As the New York Times reported:

      An internal investigation by the C.I.A. has found that its officers penetrated a computer network used by the Senate Intelligence Committee in preparing its damning report on the C.I.A.’s detention and interrogation program.

      And that’s not the worst part. The Times goes on to note that CIA officers didn’t just read the emails of the Senate investigators. They also sent “a criminal referral to the Justice Department based on false information.”

      John Brennan, CIA director from 2013-2017, insisted during Senate hearings these were “very limited inappropriate actions” and that “the actions of the CIA were reasonable.”

      Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) disagreed.

      “That’s not what the Inspector General [concluded],” Wyden said. “When you’re talking about spying on a committee responsible for overseeing your agency, in my view that undermines the very checks and balances that protect our democracy, and it’s unacceptable in a free society. And your compatriots in all your sister agencies agree with that.”

      Brennan, who publicly lied about the episode, was not punished and even retained his security clearance until Aug. 15, 2018.

      @ yenta-fada:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjFsWWsv8M8

      This is the C Span youtube (zerohedge) that shows Brennan lying his a$$ off in front of the Senate probe into illegal CIA spying on the Intelligence Committee whose job it is to oversee the conduct of the CIA. Muzz commie taqqiya expertise from Brennan duly noted in retrospect. Failure to answer the question obvious even in 2014.

      I’d prefer it to come in this form: https://www.cabelas.com/product/RAVIN-R-BOW-PACKAGE/3017663.uts?slotId=1

      Silent, non-traceable, and the anti-second amendment nazis have a hard time using any resulting event to advocate for control of “assault weapons”

      Which one do you have, one of the wood-stocked or black ones?

      Very nice looking pieces, regardless of form.

      You know that extinction event that wiped out life on earth, including the dinosaurs? This article has a very good macro level description of what happened. Because the event was SO destructive, no real fossil evidence has been found.

      Until now. Lots and lots of it. Including dinosaurs. In North Dakota. At the appropriately named Hell Creek Formation.

      Enjoy

      Not yet. I got everything put together, but I haven’t had time to go out and shoot. Plus, it’s been pretty nasty lately.

      If the wind dies down tomorrow, I’m going to take it out and break in the barrel. That’s going to take some time.

      I keep seeing liberals calling it Donald Trump a “dictator“. But isn’t a dictator someone who wants to expand control of the government?

      It seems just another liberal disconnect with reality.

      They are absolutely convinced they can make ‘the narrative’ the reality in people’s heads.

      Why is Cindy McCain campaigning in Ukraine? And what is IRIGlobal?

      @ eaglesoars:

      Cindy McCain following in her husbands footsteps, is a hero to the left for meddling in Russian internal affairs. A hero to the exact same people who feigned such outrage at the merest suggestion that Russia might have meddled in American internal affairs. But don’t you dare call it hypocrisy… Because DEMOCRACY….

      Internews, a US-taxpayer funded NGO that trains reporters in Ukraine, is telling journalists to get approval from the military before publishing their war reporting. This is exactly what they should not be doing! h/t @InnaVarenytsia

      oh my wouldn’t it be fun to look into that funding! ‘US taxpayer’ is a very lose term.

      In our ‘Just So You Know’ file: There’s quite a bit coming out trying to link Trump with Russians in spite of the Mueller debacle. Leading the charge is one ‘investigative reporter’ by the name of Craig Unger, who I’ve been smacking down to whoever asks for a couple months now. But today in WaPo’s opinion piece, he’s got another screed claiming Trump let the Russian mafia launder money by buying condos in Trump Tower NYC.

      It was a small thing back during the campaign, so you may not remember, but in Chicago they removed the Trump name from a building or two. Just to be spiteful assholes. How could they do that to private property you may ask? Because it’s not ‘private property’. Trump doesn’t own any of the buildings with his name on them. He builds them for developers and franchises his own name. The only thing he owns in Trump Towers NYC is his own condo.

      Altho I believe he DOES own the hotel on Penn Ave in D.C. So far.

      Trump doesn’t sell what he doesn’t own. Nobody does. The real estate agency for Trump Towers has been, for as long as I can remember, Sotheby’s. Not Trump Org.

      In the event anyone tries to pull that crap on you…………

      The next time that fat spawn of his starts caterwauling about what a hero her daddy was, someone should shove the fact that he wanted the IRS to target the Tea Party, etc., right up her ass. Yeah, use the gov’t against people you don’t like, some hero.
