    That Malcolm Turbull married Lucy Hughes is not in doubt.

    What happened to Tom Hughes’ wife?

    And are there any cats in Point Piper?

    The IG has been going to release his report since February. If possible Rosenstein and co will delay until after mid term elections. If not, I reckon Hannity is right and they will drop it the day before the Trump-Kim summit.

    My tip is that Trump will let the against Hillary and Obama pile up in the public domain, then preemptively pardon Hillary and Obama so their freedom is his gift to them. Then they will shut up because they will be toxic modern day Nixon’s. Trump will pardon them, when it is obvious and undeniable that they are crooks, and do so in the interests of national unity and reconciliation. But he will let Comey, McCabe and others go down first to send a hard message to those who might be tempted in the future.

    I agree.
    But he will make both Crimton and Jug-Ears issue a mea culpa, hopefully including that well known exculpatory phrase “I am not a crook.”
    He can then make one of his famous “conciliatory but knife twisting” speeches.
    “Now folks, Obama said he is not a crook. Look, I don’t know if Obama is a crook or not. Some good people close to me … some very good people … the best … say to me that Obama is a crook. Look … hey, maybe he is a crook, maybe he isn’t. I hope he isn’t a crook. I really do. That would be bad. Very bad. But let’s take him at his word, huh.”
    Sounds conciliatory and fair, but makes sure he uses the words “Obama” and “crook” several times in close formation.

    Michael Kors company had a market cap of US$16 billion it’s height.
    To keep it in perspective, Quaintarse is on its highs now and it has a market cap of around US$7.5 billion.

    Tesla has a market cap of $50bn. Markets can be temporarily irrational.

    Monday 11/5/18 at 2pm release of the IG report is D-day for the anti-trumpers. FMD this will be either magnificent or horrible.

    The report is ‘way overdue…and there’s a reason for that.

    Lawmakers Warn IG Being Pressured to Slow Roll Clinton FBI Report

    The Department of Justice and the FBI are deliberately attempting to slow roll and redact significant portions of DOJ Inspector General, Michael Horowitz’s report on the bureau’s handling of the Hillary Clinton investigation, according to numerous congressional officials and investigators.

    The trouble is individuals mentioned in the report are being allowed to “review” the document.
    Oddly that is taking a lengthy time.

    Monday 11/5/18 at 2pm release of the IG report is D-day for the anti-trumpers.

    Is that the time and date? If so and the time above is US eastern time, by my calculation the IG’s report will be released seven hours after Trump sits down for his first meeting with Phat Phuc Un
    in Singapore.

    The daily Trumpworld news cycle is like a Mad Mouse ride.

    Prosecuting Obama, regardless of the evidence of wrong doing would risk starting a race war. Exactly why Obama got away with everything – because he’s black and any attempt to enforce whitey law is racist. Obama ain’t going to jail and he knows it. What a truly disgraceful man to be the first black president. They could have had a Carson or the like, but instead chose a crooked race baiter from corruptocrat Chicago.

    “Irrational exuberance” is a phrase used by the then-Federal Reserve Board chairman, Alan Greenspan, in a speech given at the American Enterprise Institute during the dot-com bubble of the 1990s. The phrase was interpreted as a warning that the market might be overvalued.

    “Going to hell in a handbasket hand bag”

  10. John Comnenus

    Interesting that McCabe asks for immunity after he seen the IG Report. He was undoubtedly adversely named and hence given an opportunity to respond prior to its public release. McCabe chose to use that interregnum to preemptively seek an immunity deal. It must be bad because only a month ago McCabe’s lawyers were going to sue Trump. Seems like something changed his mind. The IG Report?

    Sydney’s George Street light rail a vanity ‘toy’ for politicians: Paul Broad

    One of the most prominent public transport projects in the country, the Sydney light rail, is a waste of money and a vanity project that should have never been started, according to the former head of Infrastructure NSW, Paul Broad.

    Now chief executive of Snowy Hydro, Mr Broad said the 12km line that will stretch from central Sydney to Randwick and Kingsford – and which is a year late and $1 billion over budget – should not have been started because extra buses and more efficient trains would have been better for commuters.

    “The Sydney Basin is doing fine with infrastructure,” he said at The Australian Financial Review National Infrastructure Summit in Sydney. “I would argue about some of the investments, for example the light rail.

    “It’s a toy. Imagine the cars it will run over and the people it will run over? For some reason there is a view that metal on rails is better than rubber on roads.”

    Mr Broad has long been critical of the light rail project. In 2012, when he was overseeing Infrastructure NSW as its inaugural CEO, the agency released a report recommending the state build an underground bus tunnel in the CBD rather than a light rail line, arguing it would be faster and more reliable.

    “CBD light rail may not provide transit benefits for some existing bus passengers who will be required to interchange or walk a longer distance,” the 2012 report said. “Additionally, the narrowness of George Street may mean that a high capacity light rail service is fundamentally incompatible with a high quality pedestrian boulevard along this corridor.” Mr Broad quit Infrastructure NSW in 2013.

    Bitter dispute

    The $2.1 billion project, which promises services every four minutes at peak times, is one of the most important overseen by NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, who was previously transport minister. But it has ended up in the NSW Supreme Court due to a bitter dispute between the government and the lead contractor, Spain’s Acciona, over who is responsible for unforseen costs associated with moving utilities.

    Ms Berejiklian told the summit the government was trying to get Acciona to finish the light rail line sooner.

    “The contractor has said March 2020 [to finish] and we’ve said you can do better than that, so that’s what we’re having a dispute over,” she told the Summit.

    Ms Berejiklian acknowledged that maintaining good relationships with contractors on big infrastructure projects like the light rail was “critical” to their success. She plans to publish a 10-point plan this week designed to lower bidding costs for engineering and construction contractors, and repair strained relationships.

    “It is about reducing bid costs and improving quality but it’s also about acknowledging that relationship building and relationship maintenance during a project is critical, ” she said.

    The NSW government will move away from “fixed price, lump sum” procurement methods that have required projects like the light rail line to be delivered on a certain date and within a certain budget or face hefty fines that often end up being disputed.

    It also plans to reduce the number of bidders on major projects to three or less, and standardise contracts to reduce costs, a promise that pleased big contractors.

    Todd Battley, the Australian chief executive of global engineering group Aecom, said there were no “straightforward” projects left in Australia’s big CBDs.

    “They are all complex and multifaceted with significant risk,” Mr Battley said. “Our experience has shown that a more collaborative approach delivers the best project outcomes and value for everyone involved.

    “In a competitive global market continuing along the current trajectory was not an option if NSW wanted to deliver the infrastructure that is required to meet the needs of its growing population.”

    The Australian CEO of Canada-based engineering group WSP, Guy Templeton, said the business culture in New Zealand was more collaborative than in Australia, and had historically produced “better outcomes” on difficult projects.

    “On the major projects there which run into problems, there’s more of a feeling of let’s sit down around the table and work it through together, ” Mr Templeton said.

    John Holland CEO Joe Barr said the changes announced by the Premier would lead to a better working relationship between the public and private sector.

    “The east coast infrastructure boom is an incredible opportunity for companies like John Holland,” Mr Barr said.. “However, it also presents its challenges, particularly around staging and hiring specialist employees.”

    High costs of bidding

    Contractors have been complaining about the high costs of bidding for Australian infrastructure projects due to the complex tenders required by state governments. The NSW plans to streamline the tendering process, requiring less detailed designs in initial bids.

    The changes to NSW tenders come as contractors struggle to cope with some $80 billion of infrastructure projects scheduled for construction over the next few years.

    Ms Berejiklian said it was in the interests of both governments and industry to ensure there was a more “even keel” in the delivery of projects, arguing the market was now “completely different” to a few years ago.

    “Early on when there were just a few projects on the boil, everybody was really keen to get in there and was spending perhaps too much bidding for projects,” she said, adding the government did not want contractors to be “out of pocket”.

    “We know a project is at its best when the interface between government and industry is a positive one,” she said. “If we can work harder collaboratively to improve the interface between government, industry and all the various other parties that are part of a major project, then of course we will do that.”

    She said NSW would reach a “tipping point” in the next 18 months on infrastructure projects when it could start “building for growth” rather than catching up on infrastructure.

    Londonistan stikes again‘He’s got a gun’: Sunrise reporter mugged after live cross

    A CHANNEL Seven reporter has been mugged by a man carrying a gun after a live cross to Sunrise.

    Europe correspondent Laurel Irving had just wrapped up a report from London and thrown back to the studio in Sydney when she and her cameraman Jimmy Cannon were approached by two men riding bikes.

    “I was really busy [prerecording extra footage] and noted that they were wearing balaclavas, which you would think would be a dead giveaway as to their intentions,” she told Melbourne radio station 3AW’s breakfast show.

    “I started talking into the camera and while that was happening one of them walked up to Jimmy, our cameraman, and started talking to him.

    “All of a sudden Jimmy took the camera off the tripod and that’s when I stepped in and said, ‘Hey, what’s going on here?’”

    Irving added that she’d tried to “grab the camera” but her cameraman had intervened.

    “Jimmy said, ‘No, no, he’s got a gun!’ So I let it go and they took off on the bike,” she said.

    However, Irving did manage to take a photo of the thieves as they cycled away.

    “And now the state that could not bring itself to jail Man Haron Monis, the perpetrator of the Lindt Café terrorist attack, after he was charged in relation to a murder and a series of other violent and sexual crimes is in the final process of incarcerating John Sunol.

    This is the sad truth: John Sunol is the canary in Australia’s free speech coal mine.

    He’s a nobody. He has no following. He has no influence. He’s not a person in a position of power. He doesn’t even have his mind.

    The only things Sunol has left are his freedom and his life. If he loses the former he may well lose the latter too. It’s hard to see him lasting behind bars.

    This canary is about to be snuffed out completely by the anti-discrimination industry. And the message will be loud and clear: if it can destroy a loser with nothing left to lose, it can come after the rest of us who do have things to lose as well”.

    Emergency departments in western Sydney – generally some of the state’s most over-stretched – recorded marked improvements.

    There have been serious discussions about banning or controlling the ownership of lathes and milling machines in the UK.

    The poltician scum realised that people might attempt to 3D print a plastic gun which would most probably not work or blow up in their hand, then these political Einstein’s suddenly realised there were vast numbers of garages full of lathes and milling machines completely able to manufacture working metal firearms.

    I kid you not, I occasionally buy a copy of “Model Engineer” apart from the creeping intrusion of “OH&S”, this threat of bans or restrictions is also on their list.

    Zaky Mallah has been arrested in Singapore.
    Staff writersNews Corp Australia Network
    June 6, 2018 3:06PM

    FORMER terror suspect Zaky Mallah, who once threatened to kill officers of ASIO, has been arrested in Singapore.

    Seven News reported the Western Sydney-based Mallah has been detained in a holding cell at Singapore airport ahead of the US-North Korea summit next week.

    Seven News reported that authorities detained and questioned Mallah for more than five hours after he flew in from Sydney last night. He is to be deported back to Sydney, the network stated.

    In a clip broadcast on Seven, Mallah can be heard saying: “They asked me a lot of questions about my history, about my dealings with the Australian government, ASIO, my trip to Turkey, Syria.”

    His on-side game is comparable to his idol Azharuddin’s, yet he is decidedly more assured on the off side and has the rare gift of being able to hit the same ball to either side.
    The Australians, who have suffered more than most, paid the highest compliment after India’s 2003-04 tour Down Under by admitting they did not know where to bowl to him.
    Laxman, a one-time medical student, finally showed signs of coming to terms with his considerable gifts in March 2001, as he tormented Steve Waugh’s thought-to-be-invincible Australians with a majestic 281 to stand the Kolkata Test on its head.
    But even though he had another wonderful series against the Australians in 2003-04 with two centuries, one of them involving a back-from-the-dead, match-winning, 300-plus partnership with Kolkata ally Rahul Dravid at Adelaide.

    Coming to the end of a long drawn out cropping season.

    One of my mates severed a finger on the weekend, after midday on a Saturday.

    The duty staff patched him up as best could be done, but severing a finger in the Victorian outback on the weekend is bad timing.

    Lucky enough he got to see a plastic surgeon mid morning on Monday, and the finger was stuck back on Tuesday. the flap of flesh it was swinging on was good enough to keep blood supplied all the time.

    Pale stale male privilege.

    Another mate toppled off his airseeder on the weekend, two meter fall to the ground and knocked out.
    He got to an x-ray department eventually, was scanned and found to have no major injury, but the arm will be out of action for a couple of months. The urban hospital emergency department he ended up at rushed him home, because it was Saturday and things usually get very ugly after sunset on a Saturday when the fighting classes get active.

    Back in the not so old days, you could get stitched back together any day of the week in rural Victoria, indeed it was expected.

    Imagine telling yasmynys that she had to wait out a couple of days with a severed finger, would the media assault for racism come first, or the cousins mass physical assault on the hospital?.

    Bangarra digs into indigenous farming for dance work

    ARTS CORRESPONDENT

    @matthewwestwood

    Sustainable agriculture is not often a subject for contemporary dance, but Bangarra Dance Theatre’s new work, Dark Emu, has been inspired by the ancient farming techniques with which indigenous people cared for the land and produced their food.

    The performance by the indigenous dance company is based on Victorian author Bruce Pascoe’s book Dark Emu, Black Seeds: Agriculture or Accident? which recalls early accounts by European settlers of Aboriginal farming prac­tices. Bangarra artistic director Stephen Page said the performance would evoke the fish traps at Brewarrina, NSW, the growing of kangaroo grass for grain, and land-management measures such as seasonal burn-offs.

    “The Aboriginal mob weren’t just hunters and gatherers, they had a wonderful relationship with the land,” Page said.

    He met Pascoe last year during the Sydney Writers Festival, where Pascoe was a guest, and ­invited him to attend Bangarra’s popular show Bennelong at the Opera House.

    Playwright Alana Valentine helped adapt Pascoe’s book for the dance performance, which will feature choreography by Page, Yolande Brown, Daniel Riley and the Bangarra dancers.

    The Dark Emu is a dark patch of the Milky Way that, according to legend, represents a spirit emu, symbolising knowledge and creation. Page said the dancing in Dark Emu was not literally about farming, but aimed to capture the cultural and spiritual dimensions of food-gathering and preparation, connected with the seasons and time of day.

    “There is so much ceremony in everything,” he said. “There is a sense of seeds, and the earth, and the growing of grass, and harvest of grains.”

    From the Oz. You whitefella’s go about farming the wrong way. It’s all in the dancing.

    Never once pulled the head off a live lamb, no matter how stuck it was.

    Decapitating a stuck dead lamb can make it less invasive and traumatic on the ewe to get the front legs free and slip the rest of the dead-un out and away so the ewe survives.

    California is a one party state. Before the southern immigration the state used to be safely GOP.

    California has an all party primary system for state elections. The objective was obviously to shut out the GOP.

    SAN FRANCISCO—Democratic Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom placed first and Republican businessman John Cox second in California’s all-party primary Tuesday, ensuring the GOP won’t be shut out of a top-of-the-ticket fall election to succeed term-limited Gov. Jerry Brown.

    The outcome, declared by the Associated Press, was welcomed by GOP officials, who had worried that the party would be shut out of a key race in November. Another Democrat, former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, fell short of the No. 2 slot behind Mr. Cox.

    “We are very happy with the results, we could not be happier,” California Republican Party Chairman Jim Brulte said in an interview Tuesday night.
    Related

    Mr. Cox’s second-place finish was a boost for President Donald Trump, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and other party leaders who had endorsed him and worked to consolidate GOP support behind him in a sprawling field that had 27 candidates including five Republicans.

    Mr. Cox, who in 2016 voted for libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson over Mr. Trump, edged out his main GOP rival, Travis Allen, a conservative state assemblyman.

    There is zero prospect for a GOP candidate winning again for perhaps the next two generations.

    Last week, Republicans here received daunting news about their statewide prospects, with a report from the California secretary of state showing Republicans made up 25.1% of registered voters, compared with 25.5% of voters who listed “No Party Preference,” while Democrats made up 44.4% of the tally.

    The video Tommy was making before he was arrested is interesting:

    Tommy Robinson: Trials, Protests, a Media Blackout, and Global Attention

    “If you don’t think they are coming for every single person in this country who are saying things that are inappropriate or difficult for the political establishment you are kidding yourselves,” Kassam (author and former Breitbart London editor in chief) said, warning that it would only be a matter of time before it would be every free person’s “turn to be deleted, silenced, arrested, with your life in jeopardy”.

    June 4, 2018 (American Thinker) – Unlike the judge who delivered his 13-month sentence, I watched Tommy Robinson’s entire Facebook Live stream on the Muslim grooming gangs trial outside Leeds Crown Court. It is a little over an hour long and very enlightening.

    One of the contentions of the court is that Robinson and his small camera crew are breaking the law by standing in front of the courthouse. In reality, they aren’t on courthouse property at all throughout the video. Robinson and his crew are filming on the street. They even ask the police at one point if they are standing far enough away from the courts not to be breaking the law.

    The other thing I learned from the video is that ordinary Brits love Tommy Robinson. In the hour that Robinson is outside of the court house, multiple people stop to tell him that they appreciate what he’s doing. Apart from two non-whites, almost all are scared to be filmed with Robinson, but they want to take pictures with him. They want to stop and chat with him. (See Fox News Tucker Carlson report on Tommy Robinson below)

    Almost all the Muslim accused hurl verbal abuse at Robinson about having had sex with his sister or wife or mother. Robinson simply asks them if they feel at all guilty, and by their response, it appears that they don’t.

    The courts also contend that Robinson is disturbing the peace, but the only disturbance I saw throughout the video comes from the accused when they tell Robinson that they have “f—– his mother’s fanny,” whatever that means. At one point they even gesture through a courthouse window that they would like to slit the throats of Robinson and his camera crew, and they also threaten to kill a woman on the street. For unknown reasons, they are permitted to make such threats without any repercussions.

    Caelan Robertson, the cameraman for Tommy Robinson, was interviewed by InfoWars. He is now legally allowed to talk about the court ruling. There are many astounding aspects to Robinson’s court ruling, but to me, the most disturbing of them all is that the judge admitted that he had not watched Robinson’s Facebook livestream video. Robinson was arrested, issued charges, arraigned, and sentenced, all within the span of four hours, while men accused of raping and trafficking girls as young as eleven are afforded the protection of a long, drawn out trial.

    Why was this case rushed through while the Muslim grooming gangs trial has gone on for years? These accused men are allowed to continue to work in restaurants, drive taxis, own businesses, and rape more young English girls. If the cases are not talked about, the families of other young girls will not know that these men are dangerous and that they live in their area.

    Without Robinson to report on the case, it’s impossible to find out anything about the verdict of that trial.

Leaving aside the wool issue, and animal welfare nutters not wanting to eat skippy, it bravely stated how easy it would be, and able to run more sheep beside!

    Knowing a few of those involved in helping Garnaut put together the opus, I sleuthed away, to discover that the background work to discover this untapped alternative production system was solely to grab hold of an excel spreadsheet put together by some animal activist mob in the ACT!

    Too much of a good thing: Solar power surge is flooding the grid

    The rising number of solar rooftop installations is creating concerns that too much energy is flooding into electricity grid, and could cause blackouts as the system struggles to control the excess power.

    “Solar spill”, when high levels of energy are generated by rooftop installations in the middle of the day when demand is low, is becoming a problem for Australia’s electricity networks, according to Andrew Dillon, the head of the grid representative body Energy Networks Australia.

    “If this goes badly, one of three things is going to happen,” he said at an Energy Networks 2018 event on Wednesday.

    “Either we get voltage and frequency issues at the local level or even localised blackouts and things tripping off.”

    Or rooftop solar would have to be stopped from coming into the grid or, he said, the networks would have to spend a fortune to have the capacity to deal with it.

    “These are all bad outcomes and we don’t want any of these to happen.”

    Rooftop solar may have to be turned off or curtailed if more batteries are not installed in order to stop a potential flood of energy into the grid and the market operator will need more power of control, energy service company Greensync’s chief executive Phil Blythe told Fairfax Media.

    “We have to soak up as much as we can but after that we’ll need to curtail people’s solar,” Mr Blythe said.

    “How do you deal with all this uncontrolled energy flooding the system? For the market operator, having control of our generation fleet is going to become essential.”

    Both Mr Dillon and Mr Blythe recommended an increase in energy storage technology to absorb the “solar spill” as opposed to turning off people’s solar panels.

    “We have to soak up the energy somehow, battery storage is an efficient way of doing this; we can get energy recoveries of around 90 per cent,” Mr Blythe said.

    He said the other problem is if solar panels are turned off from a central source, whose power is cut and will they still be paid for not supplying energy into the grid?

    “We can open a circuit on a solar panel to stop it, the question is how do you do that fairly, whose systems get switched off during the day and how do people get recompensed for their lost output?” he asked.

    Battery storage company Fluence’s Brian Perusse said solar households would be out of pocket in most markets if solar is turned off.

    “As we have seen in other markets such as Hawaii, concerns over system reliability, led network operators or regulators to limit or pause rooftop solar programs,” he said.

    Queensland is already experimenting with this issue as network company Energex moves traditional off-peak hot water systems that were programmed to come on at night to the middle of the day.

    “They are making it a solar sponge to avoid this zero or negative demand period,” Mr Dillon said, “what we need to do is far more of this.”

    California is already facing this problem, which is known as the ‘California Duck Curve’, where high levels of solar generation are pushed into the system in the middle of the day when demand is low and being wasted. It also forces other generators to rapidly ramp up power to meet the growing peak demand that comes at the end of the day, as the sun sets.

    In April, new rooftop solar installations reached around 109 megawatts of power, marking the seventh month in a row of more than 100 megawatts of new solar installed.

    The head of the Australian Energy Market Operator, Audrey Zibelman, said the grid is “seeing the equivalent of a new power plant being built every season”.

    Hundreds of indigenous Australian languages risk being lost as the number of people taught to speak them dwindles, but a small robot named Opie and a team of dedicated researchers could be part of the key to preservation.

    Researchers at the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language (CoEDL) are in a race against time to preserve or revive indigenous languages, only 140 of which out of more than 300 are still spoken today. Only 18 of them are still taught to children.

    The rising number of solar rooftop installations is creating concerns that too much energy is flooding into electricity grid, and could cause blackouts as the system struggles to control the excess power.

    Where words fail, Pilbara police tackle family violence with pictures

    When Martu leaders from the West Australian desert town of Newman sat down with police to talk about the pervasive and complex problem of family violence, they agreed on one driving factor that was relatively easy to address.

    A significant number of perpetrators in the Pilbara who breach violence restraining orders, protective bail orders and police orders are found to have not understood the conditions placed on them in either their written or verbal forms. Their victims often do not understand either and unwittingly spend time with the perpetrator while a court order is in place, which can lead to more violence and a lengthy jail sentence for the perpetrator.

    When Newman senior officer Mark Fleskens recently asked Martu men and women to explain what happened in these cases, he heard the stories of traditional desert people — the first generation of Martu to live in town rather than in remote communities — for whom English is a second or third language, if they speak it at all.

    Martu man Jamie Narrier, who works with women in the Kanyirninpa Jukurrpa ranger program to make changes he hopes will keep more of his people out of jail, says the issue seems basic but is huge.

    At a recent Kanyirninpa Jukurrpa workshop to discuss how to help Martu better understand the court and police system, a man who has spent much of his adult life in and out of jail asked what “guilty” and “not guilty” meant.

    “The paperwork doesn’t mean anything if the person doesn’t understand it. It is really easy to get in big trouble,” said Mr Narrier. “The man thinks he is free to go but the paperwork says he is on an order.”

    Martu leaders believe they have a possible solution to help perpetrators and victims visualise what the court or police order says.

    “We came up with cards,” said Martu leader Vivienne Landy.

    The Martu have designed three cards — red, yellow and blue — at least two of which will soon be trialled by Newman police, who are learning a small number of Martu phrases such as “nyina ­jualpa”, which means “stay apart”.

    The blue card is a police order and shows two figures fighting with a diagonal line through the drawing. In big letters on the card are the words “you two stop it!” and then, in Martu, “jurrangkupula”. On the back is the order for the parties to separate for three days

    China’s rising emissions prove Trump right on Paris Agreement


    Nothing horrifies the intelligentsia more than President Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Agreement on climate change. But, based on new information on China’s emissions, it increasingly looks like the president made the right call.

    Just last week, an analysis from Greenpeace indicated that China’s 2018 carbon emissions were on track to grow at the fastest rate in six years. The study, based on government data regarding the use of coal and other energy sources, shows carbon output rising 4 percent in the first quarter of this year. Analysts are projecting similar gains over the next several quarters.

    The weakness of the Paris Agreement was that it was lopsided, requiring little from China and a great deal from the U.S. President Obama committed the United States to reducing carbon emissions in 2025 by 26 to 28 percent, which would have meant a substantial jump in electricity costs.

    By contrast, China committed to boosting non-fossil fuels to around 20 percent of its overall energy mix by 2030 (a project already underway) and a “hope” that emissions might peak at that time. As one analyst commented in the New York Times, “What China is pledging to do here is not a lot different from what China’s policies are on track to deliver.”

    As vague as its goals were, it is becoming clear that the country is unlikely to meet them. To do so would require sacrificing growth to rein in pollution. Since the Chinese Communist Party has pledged to double China’s 2010 GDP by 2020 and to create a “moderately prosperous society” by 2021, that is extremely unlikely.

    Facebook Gave Data Access to Chinese Firm Flagged by U.S. Intelligence

    Facebook has data-sharing partnerships with at least four Chinese electronics companies, including a manufacturing giant that has a close relationship with China’s government, the social media company said on Tuesday.

    The agreements, which date to at least 2010, gave private access to some user data to Huawei, a telecommunications equipment company that has been flagged by American intelligence officials as a national security threat, as well as to Lenovo, Oppo and TCL.

    The four partnerships remain in effect, but Facebook officials said in an interview that the company would wind down the Huawei deal by the end of the week.

    Meet the new governor of California.

    Newsom settled for two terms as lieutenant governor — an office he once proposed to “get rid of” unless its occupant could function as a teammate of the governor — and bided his time. He increased his statewide name recognition from the “lite gov” perch, leading a statewide ballot measure to legalize cannabis in 2016 and another that year to toughen California’s ammunition laws.

    During the governor’s campaign, his rivals brought up one of the darkest chapters of his personal and political history — the 2005 consensual affair he had with a woman who worked for him at City Hall and was the wife of his campaign manager.

    “If you can’t trust Gavin with your best friend’s wife,” Allen said at one debate, “how can you trust him with the state?”

    But Newsom, now the father of four children with his second wife, filmmaker Jennifer Siebel Newsom, parried the attack, saying he had apologized at the time and “learned an enormous amount” from the scandal. Helping him politically was that Ruby Rippey Gibney, the woman he had the affair with, said their liaison was not an example of a #MeToo moment.

    Downside; you have to live in a warm climate for efficient use. The tech uses fan driven heat exchangers to heat the water or air, almost a reverse technique to a household aircon cooling unit.

    Europe turns away from the US — and bites the hand that feeds

    Well before his threatened steel and aluminum restrictions on European countries (as well as on Canada and Mexico), Trump slaughtered some of Europe’s most sacred cows.

    He withdrew from the Paris accord on greenhouse-gas emissions and broke away from the Iran deal. Europeans strongly believe the former will save the planet. (It won’t.) They also hope the latter will tame the Islamic Republic. (Again, nope.) As important, they want their continent’s economies to have access to Iranian markets.

    Then Trump offended the Euros’ collective sense of decorum by moving the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

    But on that, as on other issues, Europeans are far from united.

    Romanian Prime Minister Viorica Dăancilă visited Israel’s capital recently and her government tentatively approved moving its embassy there. For that, Romanian President Klaus Iohannis called on Dăancilă to resign, accusing her of making “secret deals” with the Jews.

    And Germany, once a top Israel booster, privately sided with Iohannis and against recognizing Israel’s capital. After Romania moves its embassy, Berlin fears, the Czechs, Bulgarians and others may also break ranks with the European Union.

    A Washington source tells me the US ambassador in Berlin, Richard Grenell, has advised the Germans against interfering in their neighbors’ deliberations over embassy location. Other US envoys should also advocate the move to Jerusalem.

    Beyond the embassy, challenging the fictional EU “consensus” will demonstrate that some Europeans have more in common with America than with their fellow domineering continental partners.

    Meanwhile, despite playing hardball in public, France and Britain (among others) are quietly attempting to bridge the gaps with America over the Iran deal.

    Pool warming is not a high priority in NorWest WA, calli, but the almost year round use of aircon is a huge cost factor in living in these locations.

    Evaporative aircon is relatively cheap, but is useless in high humidity days, so refrigerated becomes the backup along with the associated high running costs.

    No shopping malls down the street like the big cities also means high capacity freezers and fridges are a fixture and most people have a generator in case of power outages from cyclones and drunken truck drivers and so forth.

    Electricity costs are a huge burden on most regional WA households and anything that can save a few dollars is well worth a good look.

    I use solar panels to run my beer fridge the big fan in the shed. Unreliable and expensive for household use IMO.

    A source familiar with the case told The Washington Times the search was even more intrusive: An agent patted down Mrs. Manafort before she was allowed to get out of bed.

    “Agents felt up Mrs. Manafort lying in bed to see if she had guns,” the source said of the intimidation.

    In all, 12 FBI agents entered the home, guns drawn, and stayed for hours.

    The aggressive search of a prone sleepy woman is, the source said, a hallmark of Mr. Mueller’s top prosecutor, Andrew Weissmann. A former mob prosecutor in New York, he specializes in turning witnesses against bigger prey and is not afraid to make things rough for spouses, too.
