    Tesla, what else? Today’s current stock price LIVE

    Tesla, Inc. (TSLA)
    NasdaqGS – NasdaqGS Real Time Price. Currency in USD
    Add to watchlist
    $1,301.94 +$93.28 (+7.72%)

    This comment doesn’t really have anything to do with Tesla’s stock price, but…I used to think Elon Musk was a dick. I was wrong. He’s a total madlad who doesn’t much care what others think of him, and he has a lot of sensible opinions as well.

    Take the Tesla Truck for instance. Who else would build something like that? While taking it out for a drive, Jay Leno asked Musk why it was bulletproof. Musk said something like ‘why not? It you have a choice between bulletproof or not bulletproof, you’re going to go bulletproof, right?’

    Good to see every ‘uman rites’ mob in Oz has been completely shut down and defunded.

    Well they must have been because not one (that ive seen reported) has uttered so much as a squeak about arbitrary detention, suspension of normal civil liberties, banning of foreigners from our shores, suppression of religions services, or restrictions on members of the public by government fiat.

    Im sure they will re-emerge after its all over to support various lawsuits by selected victim groups, but right now they dont exist.

    All going just swimmingly for her lately.

    Gov. Kemp deploys National Guard to Atlanta after weekend violence (today)

    After a holiday weekend that saw dozens of people shot on the streets — including the killing of an 8-year-old girl — Gov. Brian Kemp has declared a state of emergency and authorized up to 1,000 Georgia National Guard troops to police Atlanta locations.

    She’s obviously just the sort of person you want to become President after Joe steps down a month into his term.

    Premier Dan can only get away with this deprivation of liberty because the folk are housing commission tenants. There might be lots of women in there with kids and can’t speak English and simply confused and afraid. I know there are some degenerate types living in the complexes too.

    Where have all the translators been the last four months anyway? It’s a mystery. The first new cases of this new outbreak started 2 weeks after the BLM protest, so it makes you wonder.

    There is a persistent legend that the Stone of Scone was brought to Australia for safekeeping at the height of WWII, and has been here ever since. Apparently it is supposed to be in a chamber somewhere in the bowels of the new Parliament House.

    The “official” story goes that a stone was returned to Scotland after the war ended, but this was a counterfeit. The real one is still here.

    I have no idea as to the truth of any of this. It is something I read it back in ancient times when there was no internet, and all words were printed on paper, in things called “books”.

  47. Dr Faustus

    Maximum Leader Andrews will be fanging for a Covid case in an upmarket , preferably white complexioned Melbourne apartment complex. Just one or two cases, enough to restore his government’s tarnished social justice credentials by applying the full force of the CMO turned up to eleventy eleven.

    Full police lockdown, 24hour media, a dab of pepper spray and a little light truncheon work on uppity non-LGBITI inhabitants. Rigidly inadequate hardship supplies: out of date soy milk, no beard wax; unripe avocados; Coleworth magic meat BBQ snags.

    Victoria: 191 new cases overnight, 154 likely by community transmission:

    – 13 cases relating to the North Melbourne and Flemington public housing towers, with the total now 69.
    – 12 new cases linked to the Al-Taqwa College outbreak, with the total now 90.
    – 4 new cases have been linked to the Northern Hospital in Epping, with the total now 9. This is made up of 8 staff and 1 household contact.
    – 1 case linked to Aitken Hill Primary School in Craigieburn, with the total now 10. The case is a household contact of a confirmed case.
    – The remaining new cases are linked to existing family clusters in Truganina, Patterson Lakes/Lysterfield, Fawkner and Sunshine West.

    Given that the cases in March through April were largely imports, this actually seems to be the beginning of Australia’s First Wave.

    Much as LockDan is a wretched and incompetent piece of work, what’s happening in Victoria is going to be replicated in other states if (when?) borders are opened and (if) international travel returns. Still, no reason to go easy on the Hunchback. As a teacher said when about to give me the cuts for some offence I protested had been done by someone else.

    “Son,” he said, “you’ve done plenty else you got away with. This balances the books.”

    Coronavirus Australia: 191 new Victorian cases as NSW border closes
    Coronavirus-plagued Victoria has recorded 191 new cases of COVID-19 as NSW residents rush to catch the final flights from Melbourne to Sydney before the southern border closes at midnight.

    Victoria has recorded a shocking 191 new coronavirus cases in the state’s worst day since the coronavirus pandemic began.

    Of the new cases, 37 have been linked to outbreaks and 154 are under investigation.

    The breakdown of new cases linked to known outbreaks are as follows;

    13 cases relating to the North Melbourne and Flemington public housing towers, with the total now 69.

    – 12 new cases linked to the Al-Taqwa College outbreak, with the total now 90.

    – 4 new cases have been linked to the Northern Hospital in Epping, with the total now 9. This is made up of 8 staff and 1 household contact.

    – 1 case linked to Aitken Hill Primary School in Craigieburn, with the total now 10. The case is a household contact of a confirmed case.

    – The remaining new cases are linked to existing family clusters in Truganina, Patterson Lakes/Lysterfield, Fawkner and Sunshine West.

    The massive jump eclipses yesterday’s 127 cases and the previous biggest 24-hour surge in March, when 111 infections were recorded.

  72. areff

    I drove past the Racecourse Road towers on the way to friend’s abode. Oooooodles of cops standing around, flashing lights in profusion, and checkpoints in and out of the carpark. All that was to be expected. What was most disconcerting on the way home: two fire engines standing ready.

    One guesses there is some fear the restless high-rise natives are likely to light a fire or two.

    Doug Jones to host Dr. Anthony Fauci for Tuesday press conference

    U.S. Senator Doug Jones (D-AL) has a big-name special guest for his next weekly live-streamed press conference regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Jones on Monday announced that National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director Dr. Anthony Fauci will join him for the remote press conference, to be held Tuesday, July 7, at 11:15 a.m. CT.

    Fauci rose to national attention as a leader in the White House’s response to the coronavirus outbreak this spring.

    Jones’ press conerence can be viewed live on his office’s Facebook page.

    Fauci’s public appearances have waned recently compared to earlier in the pandemic.

    Recent guests featured in Jones’ press conferences include Montgomery Mayor Steven Reed, Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin and Alabama State Health Officer Dr. Scott Harris.

    Pravda by the Yarra:

    Melbourne and parts of regional Victoria are expected to be ordered back into lockdown on Tuesday after the state reported 191 new cases of COVID-19.

    Sources close to Tuesday’s cabinet discussions have confirmed that schools in affected areas will not re-open their doors again for term three as planned on Monday with hundreds of thousands of children to go back to distance learning, except for senior secondary students and special schools.

    Premier Daniel Andrews is expected to re-impose ‘stage 3’ restrictions on Tuesday afternoon, preventing Victorians from leaving their homes for any purpose other than work, food, exercise or medical care.

    It is unclear which regional areas will join Melbourne in lockdown or where the boundaries of the metropolitan area will be drawn with Mr Andrews expected to deliver the full details of the move when he addresses the media on Tuesday afternoon.

    The new lockdown is expected to be in place for at least four weeks, and some school children could be at home for up to six weeks, after Mr Andrews gathered his crisis cabinet in Melbourne on Tuesday morning to discuss the escalating second surge which has now spread beyond the state’s capital and into its regions.

  87. Tim Neilson

    The remaining new cases are linked to existing family clusters in Truganina, Patterson Lakes/Lysterfield, Fawkner and Sunshine West.

    Pattersons Lakes is the odd one out, being well to the south. All the rest are north or west.
    But it’s in a traditionally underclass area. It’s next door to Bonbeach – a friend who went to Bonbeach High told me that Victoria’s 10 most wanted list always has someone from Bonbeach. Admittedly it may have started to gentrify, but I suspect that there are still demographic links with the other hot spots.

    I had a severe virus back in late January, with all the symptoms.

    Government services minister Stuart Robert has given fresh details of how it intends to repay 373,000 people who had unlawful debts levied against them through the robodebt process.

    He told the National Press Club:

    “…there’ll be about 7,000 give or take who will [be paid back in] instalments – is only because there is a check in the system, that it can’t pay out more than $6,999 in any one instance…”

    So, the Government can demand (and accept) payments of greater than $6,999 – with menaces.
    But, when it has fucked up and has to refund money stolen from its citizens, suddenly, it has to go on an instalment plan because the Computer Says No.

    High iron levels accelerate Alzheimer’s disease progress

    This highlights a chronic and pervasive problem with biomedical research because high iron loading has long been associated with increased neurodegeneration. They still have settled the question of whether high iron is a consequence of pathology or a cause of pathology.

    “Our data do not prove that iron causes disease progression in Alzheimer’s disease, but the strong association we discovered invites the possibility that iron is a big contributing factor to cognitive decline in Alzheimer’s disease,” says Dr Ayton.

    My bet is that it is a problem.

    Who on this blog stated this would happen?
    You could have bet your house on it.
    And coming to your state as well.
    Anyone who thinks their state will be free of this is a moron.
    And it is still going to continue nation wide until we shoot the buggers.
    It’s that simple.

    And if no one does it soon we will never be able to.

    The reason I get so fucking angry is there are people even here on this blog that are already brainwashed.
    Seriously.
    Communism strives to take away a populations ability to think clearly by overpowering propaganda and fear.
    It always has.
    Look at the wording in the news reports you see “catastrophic” and other scary adjectives used to describe the number infected.

    Here, let us remind ourselves of the reality.

    Infection numbers mean nothing.
    NOTHING.
    Dan has been doing more testing than other states with Chinese test kits that are not only unreliable but show positives for any corona type virus, any cold, the sniffles.
    He’s going to therefore find more so called positive cases.

    No one is dying of this ……………………no one, and when you hear that somebody has died, and it’s reported as news, WHEN THE FUCKER WAS IN HIS NINETIES you might want to start to think to yourself, you are being bullshitted to.
    Those people in hospital aren’t healthy 23 year olds and there is fuck all in hospital anyway.
    The hospitals are empty.
    The same hospitals who , we were told would be over run and so we had to go into lock down, surrendering our liberty, freedom, our jobs, our mental health, our ability to plan for the future, so hospitals could cope with the outbreak.
    The hospitals are empty.

    Yet with only infection rates (of nothing worse than a cold) to use as an excuse, these fucking red c..nts, these totalitarian scum, outside of the rule of law, are about to throw their weight around again.
    They haven’t stopped for months.

    That is the truth.
    The deaths have been fudged around the world and it has been proven.
    That is the truth.
    It’s been admitted to.

    Before this shit went down everyone was in agreeance the Marxist left had marched through the institutions and yet, as soon as those same western hating, Trump hating, Marxist public servants bullshit you, you believe them!

    What is it, is it that believing there is a virus as bad as the black plague better than admitting the truth, which is far worse?
    That’s how reality becomes skewed and you then start going along with it and dribbling shit as well.
    Just enough shit so you see no need to confront reality.
    Remember, I’m only talking about some of you here, (many can see what is going on), trying to muddy the clear waters of truth to protect your own emotional welfare.
    I can understand that, but now it is critical to be a senior member of your civilisation.

    Sarah Josephine Liberty fled from the Marriott Hotel on Pitt Street in Sydney at about 10pm on Saturday.

    The Feminist Friday podcast host arrived in Sydney from Paris on Thursday and was taken to the hotel, where guests are unable to smoke while in lockdown.

    The 39-year-old was confronted by a security guard as she approached a fire exit on Saturday evening and a ‘short struggle’ ensued, police said.

    Ms Liberty was able to escape from the guard through the exit and out of sight onto the street.

    She was found about 150 metres away after a police search in Circular Quay at about 10.45pm, NSW Police said.

    I admit, being caught short in quarantine for a pack of fags must be torture. All those addicts in the Vicco towers are about to do especially cold turkey.

    WA News

    The WA Government has not ruled out reintroducing some coronavirus restrictions as a precautionary measure to protect against the Victorian outbreak sparking a similar surge in cases within the State.

    After Victoria reported a record 191 new COVID-19 cases today, Deputy Premier and Health Minister Roger Cook said “we don’t rule anything in or out”.

    “We will do whatever is necessary to protect Western Australians’ health. And if that means pulling things back a little bit further, well, then we’ll do it.”

    Asked whether West Australians faced the prospect of being placed further into lockdown because of the Victorian second wave, Mr Cook said: “Ultimately, we need to take whatever measures are necessary to protect Western Australians.

    “I haven’t seen any suggestion that we’d go backwards as a result of what’s going on Victoria but it does give us obviously a reason to very carefully consider easing of restrictions around Phase Five.”

    The Australians Medical Association (WA) has voiced fears that the removal of almost all restrictions within the State means that a single patient slipping into the State undetected could rapidly spread the disease.

    Areff – If you’re around could you pass this article on to Lizzie Beare? It fits well with her linguistic work.

    Shillings, gods and runes: Clues in language suggest a Semitic superpower in ancient northern Europe (6 Jul)

    Take the words “shilling” and “penny”: both words are found in Proto-Germanic. The early Germanic people did not have their own coins, but it is likely they knew coins if they had words for them.

    In antiquity, coins were used in the Mediterranean. One major coin minted in Carthage was the shekel, the current name for currency of Israel. We think this is the historical origin of the word “shilling” because of the specific way the Carthaginians pronounced “shekel,” which is different from how it is pronounced in He brew.

    The pronunciation of Punic can be reasonably inferred from Greek and Latin spellings, as the sounds of Greek and Latin letters are well known. Punic placed a strong emphasis on the second syllable of shekel and had a plain “s” at the beginning, instead of the “esh” sound in He brew.

    But to speakers of Proto-Germanic—who normally put the emphasis on the first syllable of words—it would have sounded like “skel.” This is exactly how the crucial first part of the word “shilling” is constructed. The second part, “-(l)ing,” is undoubtedly Germanic. It was added to express an individuating meaning, as in Old German silbarling, literally “piece of silver.”

    Sadly shillings are no longer with us since 1966, but that they date to Phoenicia is fun!
    (I never had a whole shilling, a sixpence was about the max I could show shopkeeper when buying lollies.)

    There’s a about 500,000 people in melbourne who just breathed a sigh of relief that they don’t have to go back to the office.

    See we have a political problem here.

    A huge chunk of the population – the influential and wealth part – hate the office and bugman hive more than being told to stay at home with their feet by the heater.

    Until they come around, it’s going to be stay at home orders forever.

    I can actually believe this, a bit longish but worth a read.

    THESE ARE ACTUAL COMPLAINTS RECEIVED BY “THOMAS COOK VACATIONS” FROM DISSATISFIED CUSTOMERS:
    1. “On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don’t like spicy food.”
    2. “They should not allow topless sunbathing on the beach. It was very distracting for my husband who just wanted to relax.”
    3. “We went on holiday to Spain and had a problem with the taxi drivers as they were all Spanish.”

    4. “We booked an excursion to a water park but no-one told us we had to bring our own swimsuits and towels. We assumed it would be included in the price.”
    5. “The beach was too sandy. We had to clean everything when we returned to our room.”
    6. “We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as white but it was more yellow.”
    7. “It’s lazy of the local shopkeepers in Puerto Vallartato close in the afternoons. I often needed to buy things during ‘siesta’ time — this should be banned.”
    8. “No-one told us there would be fish in the water. The children were scared.”

    9. “Although the brochure said that there was a fully equipped kitchen, there was no egg-slicer in the drawers.”
    10. “I think it should be explained in the brochure that the local convenience store does not sell proper biscuits like custard creams or ginger nuts.”
    11. “The roads were uneven and bumpy, so we could not read the local guide book during the bus ride to the resort. Because of this, we were unaware of many things that would have made our holiday more fun.”

    12. “It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England. It took the Americans only three hours to get home. This seems unfair.”
    13. “I compared the size of our one-bedroom suite to our friends’ three-bedroom and ours was significantly smaller.”
    14. “The brochure stated: ‘No hairdressers at the resort.’ We’re trainee hairdressers and we think they knew and made us wait longer for service.”

    15. “When we were in Spain, there were too many Spanish people there. The receptionist spoke Spanish, the food was Spanish. No one told us that there would be so many foreigners.”
    16. “We had to line up outside to catch the boat and there was no air-conditioning.”
    17. “It is your duty as a tour operator to advise us of noisy or unruly guests before we travel.”

    18. “I was bitten by a mosquito. The brochure did not mention mosquitoes.”
    19. “My fiancée and I requested twin-beds when we booked, but instead we were placed in a room with a king bed. We now hold you responsible and want to be re-reimbursed for the fact that I became pregnant. This would not have happened if you had put us in the room that we booked.”

    Speeding tradie fights off deadly snake with knife
    A tradie pulled over for speeding has stunned police with his outrageous – but true – excuse.

    A speeding tradie told police he couldn’t have slowed down his car because he was fighting off a deadly brown snake with a knife as he drove along the Dawson Highway in northern Queensland last month.
    In outrageous, but real, vision, the tradesman, named “Jimmy”, is pulled over by police for driving 123km/h in a 100km/h zone.
    “A brown snake or a tiger snake, it’s in the back of the ute,” he says. “It was in the ute with me, I think it’s bitten me.”
    Speeding driver ‘Jimmy’ told police he wasn’t able to brake as he was fighting off a deadly brown snake with a knife. Picture: QPS

    When Jimmy was finally able to pull over for police, the snake was laid across the back of his ute, and he feared he’d been bitten. Picture: QPS

    The officer moved to the back of the ute, where a large brown snake was bleeding and laying across the back tray.
    Jimmy said the snake had slithered into his car through the gear stick before wrapping around his legs.
    “The more I moved my legs … it just started to wrap around me.,” he said.
    “Its head just started striking at the (driver’s seat) chair, between my legs.”
    Jimmy used a seat belt and a work knife he had nearby to fight off the snake and then began driving towards the hospital, believing he had been bitten.
    Paramedics were called to the scene and determined he had not been bitten, but was suffering from shock.
    The eastern brown snake is one of the deadliest in the world.
    Jimmy was not charged.

    Lucky it wasn’t VicPol. They would have charged him with animal cruelty. And locked him up.
