    The circus continues in DC…most people have move past it, as they said, “there is no ‘there’ there”.

    Let’s declasssify this stuff and send some people to jail for treason. That would be a great act for the center ring.

      That Russian operative Belua whale keeps hanging out in Norway.
      He retrieves a cell phone that a woman dropped in the water and gives it back to her.

      given that it’s a Russian operative, it could replace our entire intelligence community and we’d end up with something that actually does what it’s supposed to.

      This has to be the most depressing thing I’ve read in a month.

      The grand battle of the Trade Avengers in Washington really isn’t that important in the grand scheme of things. What matters is the implosion of America’s technological predominance, exemplified by the Trump administration’s strategic humiliation over Fifth Generation (5G) mobile broadband.

      Huawei has created a snowball effect: The world’s talent is lining up to work with the Chinese giant directly or indirectly, because it is the dominant player. The more talent it acquires, the more dominant it becomes. It’s the Borg of the global tech business. We will assimilate you, Huawei says. Resistance is futile. The British, Germans, Poles, and Italians have come out with their hands up, and the Japanese are thinking about it.

      And this from the comments

      an NCIS agent gave a talk where I work about operations security (OPSEC). He said the DoD has a serious problem working with major universities on R&D projects since just about every one has Chinese graduate students in the physics, chemistry and engineering departments.

      Ok, my global ag reports just came in. We will probably hear that our soybean farmers are taking it in the nads because of the trade war. I’m not saying that won’t have an effect, but that’s not going to be the big reason

      Asian Swine Flu. It’s DEVASTATING the pork industry in China and pigs eat soybeans which means their demand is way down. The total decline in global demand is expected to be 42 million tons. Additionally, Argentina’s expected production is expected to increase a bit.

      B-52 Bombers Land in Qatar as U.S. Naval Strike Group Approaches Persian Gulf

      U.S. Air Force B-52 bombers ordered by the White House to deploy to the Persian Gulf to counter unspecified threats from Iran arrived at a major American air base in Qatar early Friday morning.

      Images released by the U.S. Air Force’s Central Command show B-52H Stratofortress bombers on the ground at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar.

      Others landed at an undisclosed location late Wednesday in “southwest Asia,” the Air Force said. The U.S. military in the past has described its presence at both the Al Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates and Al Udeid as “southwest Asia.”

      The Air Force identified the aircraft as coming from the 20th Bomb Squadron of Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana.

      The forward deployment of U.S. air assets comes in the wake of the White House announcement Sunday it would send the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier strike group and the B-52 bombers into the Persian Gulf to counter Tehran. The Lincoln on Thursday passed through the Suez Canal on its way to the Persian Gulf.

      St. Paul adds a new sister city: Mogadishu

      Once controlled by the Islamist militant group Al-Shabaab, the port city of Mogadishu is more than just the capital of Somalia — it’s also a symbol of reconstruction in an East African country wracked by civil war.

      Earlier this week, at the request of six members of the St. Paul City Council, Minnesota’s capital city became a “sister city” to Somalia’s capital city, cementing a relationship decades in the making.

      Both St. Paul and Minneapolis have served as a first stop for East African immigrants, among other refugee communities, since the first waves of arrivals in the 1980s and ’90s. Estimates of the Somali population in Minnesota now run from 40,000 to as high as 80,000 Somali-Americans and their descendants.

      Mueller has declined to testify before the House Judicial Committee. Wonder if No-Nads and his friends will be bringing in a bucket of chicken that day as well. And No-Nads is rather blase about it, frankly. Surprising, since they could get to the bottom of those redactions that they’re screaming about.

      Personally, I think in light of the revelations that have been made, that Mueller outsourced part of the investigation, that the Dossier was known to be false before the FISA application, etc., makes Mueller very nervous about being under oath. Because I think if he appeared, Jim Jordan would have spent the night before on the phone with Trey Gowdy getting a list of questions, in addition to the ones he has on his own.

      Mueller would be GRILLED by the Republicans.

      I tried to post this earlier but the site was wonky. So.

      You’re going to hear a lot about how the trade deal is hurting farmers. And I’m not saying it won’t/doesn’t. But they NEVER tell you the whole story.

      Soybeans.

      Did anyone tell you that expected global demand will be down by 42 million tons? No, they did not. My global ag reports came in today and the swine flu in China is DEVASTATING demand. Also production in Argentina is up.

      Did anyone tell you about cotton? No they did not. Global demand on that is exceeding production. Don’t hear any bitching from the cotton farmers do ya?

      just sayin’

Yeah, he was wrong on trade, bubelah. He’s wrong about a lot. But he’s really good at taking down 20-year old SJWs who have never learned to think in the first place, so he’s culturally useful. The ego always will out with these people and all of a sudden high IQ doesn’t seem like such a prize.

      one of these days I’m going to write a book on the politicization of food. I’m going to crucify Michelle Obama. Whole milk STILL hasn’t been returned to the school lunch program. Did you know food stamps still only cover whole milk for children up to a year (last time I looked). There is no doubt food has to be backed up by gov’t sometimes and if you looked at the attrition rate of farmers your hair would ignite.

      And Baltimore is still being held cyber-hostage. It’s really odd this isn’t a bigger story

      Just for clarity sake. The Blu-137C is NOT the CIA’s “Flying Ginsu”. I know you know this, but the way you posted that suggests that it is. The Blu-137C is the newest “Bunker Buster” designed to penetrate hardened targets to a depth of 100 feet before exploding with 5k pounds of TNT force.

      They get dropped from B-52’s (Didn’t somebody just mention a group of B-52’s arriving at Diego Garcia?) at 120,000 feet and impact within 5 feet of their target. Once dropped, its virtually impossible to prevent them from destroying their target.

      I found video of those things going BOOM! Glorious.

      This is making my day. And it’s not even noon. There are a bunch of liberal women who are hysterical because some state legislatures are implementing restrictions on abortion (Georgia and ‘heartbeat’ bill, for example). So, their great idea is – wait for it – SEX STRIKE!!

      Because they can’t take even the SMALLEST risk of becoming pregnant – and, oh, I dunno, punish men. As usual.

      So here are women whose fundamental value is objecting to treating women as purely sexual beings turning right around and treating men as – well.

      I want to live to see the day when men start claiming parental rights to their own children while those children are still in the womb.

      If you want to watch an abort-the-baby-after-birth person’s head explode, ask when the baby-daddy’s child support kicks in.

      Labour weighs up delisting UK firms if they fail to fight climate change

      UK companies failing to tackle climate change would be delisted from the London Stock Exchange under radical plans for greening the economy being drawn up by Labour.

      John McDonnell, the shadow chancellor, said he would consider changing the law if necessary to force UK-listed firms to take adequate steps to fight the “climate emergency” facing the planet.

      In an interview with the Guardian, McDonnell said much of the City was already aware of the need to make faster progress towards a zero-carbon economy, but his proposals were about “weeding out those that are not taking it seriously”.

      ‘zero-carbon’. I really don’t think he’s thought that thru

      BREXIT needed right away before this happens. The ‘wet’ Conservatives are headed for a total rout at the next elections but their votes aren’t going to Labour or the Lib/Dems and certainly not to the socialist greens. They and some blue collar Labour votes are headed to the BREXIT party. The BREXIREERS may need some ‘rump’ Conservative support to form a stable government but the left in the UK have totally ‘jumped the shark’ and are floundering about with blood in the water their chances are looking dodgy to say the least. Comrade McDonald’s wet dreams not withstanding!

      The sooner England and Wales can leave the EU and then hack off the Labour voting Scots the better. When that happens the Welsh and English will have a permanent Conservative / BREXIT right wing majority forever and the economy will boom without the fiscal drag of the socialist Scots.

      It can’t happen soon enough!

      Not technically, but in the restaurant business it is accepted.

      Just think about if you were in a resturaunt and your waitress said ” see you in 15 minutes, I am going on a break”

      In this industry you take small breaks when workload is slow.

      bedtime.

      Today has been National Dog Mom Day. To be a good mom, I did something for my Willow. After Bonnie died, I really didn’t need a dog walker anymore, so Willow didn’t see her favorite person in the whole world – yes, even more favorite than me – anymore.

      Today, that changed. Megan surprised her by just walking in the door. Have you ever seen a dog so excited she literally screams? Willow buried her head in Megan’s chest and just screamed. And cried, actual tears. We walked for a whole hour.

      From now on, once a week, whether I need her or not, Willow will get to be with her Megan.

      Done.

      Clarification. Waitresses usually work very short shifts. say 5pm to 10pm so only 4 hours and no need for a “break” Or lunches say 11am to 2pm. Short shifts.

      Backroom kitchen staff work from about an hour before the place opens to two hour after close. Also in shifts As kitchen dish washer if you take a break then when you come back from break you have a shit load of stuff piled up!

      With all due respect, this is nothing more than political bullshit. We have been doing this every year since 2007. The power goes out for a couple of hours once or twice a year until the wind gusts drop below 70 mph. Its annoying as hell, but not life threatening, and the power companies inform everyone likely to be effected.

      Silly possum, high wind days do not make wind generated electricity economical, they do the exact opposite. If the turbine spins to fast, it must be decoupled from the turbine blade or the generator overheats and catches on fire. Equally important is that the current generated is a factor based on turbine rotation, the faster the turbine spins, the higher the current generated. To much current entering the electrical grid suddenly blows fuses and shuts down the grid possibly blowing out transformers in the process.

      High wind days are very very uneconomical because they produce uncontrollable and unregulated current spikes in the electrical grid with causes very expensive power outages. Very economical wind days, are days with low but very constant wind speeds.

      DO NOT CALL ME SILLY

      The turbines change the pitch angle of the blades depending on the wind speed.

      In seriously high wind speeds they automatically chance the angle of the blades to protect themselves.

      @ Calo:

      On a blustery day, wind turbines will be turning and generating lots of lovely clean power. Last summer the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for wind in Scotland. A few bridges were shut and ferries cancelled, but that was the day wind turbines produced 100% of Scotland’s power needs.

      But when extreme weather and very strong winds hit, turbines sometimes need to be shut off. All modern wind turbines are are set to stop turning automatically if there’s too much energy in the wind. Some will shut down if the average speed of the wind is over a certain level for a period of time, while others will stop after a super strong gust (something like 100mph).

      So above 100mph winds the wind turbines shut themselves down to protect themselves.

      Aircraft do it. Propellers. Constant engine speed but blade angle increases or reduces to change thrust.

      Wind generators change blade angle to maintain constant speed.

      Yes, they do shut off in high winds.
