    Capitalism: Beijing wants to enforce social rating system to all citizens
    • China’s plan to judge each of its 1.3 billion people based on their social behavior is moving a step closer to reality, with Beijing set to adopt a lifelong points program by 2021 that assigns personalized ratings for each resident.

      The capital city will pool data from several departments to reward and punish some 22 million citizens based on their actions and reputations by the end of 2020, according to a plan posted on the Beijing municipal government’s website on Monday. Those with better so-called social credit will get “green channel” benefits while those who violate laws will find life more difficult.

      The Beijing project will improve blacklist systems so that those deemed untrustworthy will be “unable to move even a single step,” according to the government’s plan. Xinhua reported on the proposal Tuesday, while the report posted on the municipal government’s website is dated July 18.

      Capitalists always try to invent something to stay in power (including calling themselves communists) :-) And such system normally end up with their authors hanging on the trees (I guess it is crime to say such in China).

    Capitalism: Important knowledge about cheap BF stuff
    • People need to know that their free shipping comes at a human cost. They might be shopping for things that are cheaper and arrive faster, but those packages are artificially cheap. They are being paid for in other ways. People who are watching the expansion of Amazon need to know that it’s not necessarily a good thing. Sure, you’ll get cheaper and faster packages. But Amazon runs on a logistics system that’s based off working people to the bare bones

    Capitalism: Carlos Ghosn fall due to too good Nissan Leaf sales
    • Shares of Japan's fourth-largest car manufacturer as well as France's Renault plunged following a report that Carlos Ghosn, Nissan chairman and chief executive of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance, was arrested on allegations of financial trading misconduct. Nissan's board of directors plans to dismiss him on Thursday.

      Mr Ghosn was arrested on Monday on suspicion of under-reporting his corporate salary. A Brazilian-Lebanese businessman who has been with Nissan since 1999, Mr Ghosn heads the world’s largest automaker alliance. He voluntarily went with Tokyo prosecutors, who arrested him after questioning, according to Japanese newspaper Asahi.

      Nissan will propose dismissing Mr Ghosn and board member Greg Kelly, who was also arrested for financial misconduct, according to a statement from the company, which said a whistleblower set off a months-long investigation of the two men.

      Whole story is a long plot to remove Nissan from market of electric cars. This guys is farther of Leaf success and big enemy of US based Tesla as soon as it started to move to more budget sector. Removal of him was necessary for good tesla 3 sales that are much worse than expected, especially outside US.

    Capitalism: Soviet symbols are bad for ruling class, ban them
    • Members of the European Parliament have called on the Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos, to stop selling Soviet-themed merchandise on the global online shopping platform insisting that it is offends victims of the regime, according to an open letter.

      The appeal to the world’s wealthiest man comes after the American retail giant Walmart pledged in September to stop selling clothing with Soviet hammer and sickle symbols following similar complaints.

      The letter covers goods like T-shirts, costumes, flags and memorabilia, among others.

      The MEPs point out that “the total number of victims of the Soviet Regime is estimated at more than 60 million” while the Soviets also deported “over 10 million people” to camps in Siberia where they endured “inhumane living conditions, forced labour, starvation and physical violence”.

      “The bloody actions, terror and inhumanity of the Soviet regime affected nearly every family in the formerly occupied countries,” the letter said, adding that “the tragic consequences of these actions are felt to this day.”

      Most fun thing that oppressed working class will repeat such things (it is for reason called proletariat dictatorship as it oppresses parasites from currently ruling class) and ruling class representatives are afraid of it. Somehow they think that banning symbols can help them save some time. It won't.

    Fun: Proper cooling as manager and designer understand it
    • image

      • First you need to make case closed without single hole on top, so all hot air won't go anywhere.
      • Second - get some $0.3 heatsink, but it looks humble
      • Third - get some big thermal pad, proper guys love this
      • Last - add big clunky steel plate, main purpose - it adds weight to all thing.
