    MAGA: Ghost of communism is walking around again
    • Republicans in the US House of Representatives have submitted a bill encouraging schools to include the history of communism in their curricula. The document was presented at a press conference by congresswoman from Florida Maria Salazar, who was born into a family of Cuban immigrants, it was developed by 60 members of the lower house of the American parliament.

      Salazar said a third of Gen Z born between 1997 and 2012 are supportive of communism. The deputy believes that schools should give residents more knowledge of the subject under proper angle.

      "The truth is, communism is cancer," Salazar said. "The only equality that communism provides is to be equally poor, equally hungry, equally oppressed and equally exiled."

      Hungry, oppressed and exiled capitalists, guys like Salazar. Sounds like a dream.

      “American students should know about the Soviet Gulags ... where Stalin deliberately starved 3.5 million Ukrainians,” said Congressman Dan Crenshaw of Texas (quoted from Voice of America). “They should know about Mao's Cultural Revolution, which resulted in Tens of millions of Chinese have died. They should be aware of the modern slavery in which Muslim Uighurs live right now. "

      Same fairly tales again.

      According to him, the bill is intended to ensure that communism "remains in the dustbin of history - where it belongs." "Schoolchildren should know what the Che Guevara T-shirt worn by their classmate means,"

      But this guys are worried, they don't want to sit in some African country in exile writing in local newspaper how they hate communist in US. :-)

    Criminal: Meet modern robber barons - Apple and Google
    • The Apple company will be obliged on December 9 to allow software developers to display links to third-party payment platforms in their products. However, it has now become known that Apple still wants to charge fees on transactions in applications, even if they do not use its payment system. The company's internal document states that the company will realize this opportunity if the court order comes into force. Apple currently charges a 15-30% commission for in-app purchases, while digital purchases must be made using Apple's proprietary in-app purchase system, otherwise the app should be banned.

      Google has already announced a similar policy for its app store. The company said it will allow developers to use alternative payment systems and will charge 11% commission on transactions made with their help. This is almost the same as when paying through Google Play.

      This guys lost all bounds now - they want to get big money for literally doing nothing. Even their own payment system had been total robbery and here it is more like some barbarian invaders who set certain fee on oppressed people.

    War: Mordor and very big warning
    • Shipments of Russian fertilizers for export have been suspended since December 1 due to the lack of licenses from the Ministry of Industry and Trade, several sources familiar with the situation told Interfax.

      "The shipments have been stopped, the declarations have been canceled. Those who did not manage to register the goods by December 1 cannot send ships," said one of the agency's interlocutors in the port industry. The situation is caused by the fact that exporters have not yet received an export license from the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

      "The ships are standing at the approaches to the ports, they cannot be loaded. The consignments accumulate in the seaports," another source in the transport industry describes the situation.

      Export licenses are promised to be issued around December 5-6. However, already now a number of plants for the production of mineral fertilizers, mainly nitrogen fertilizers, are forced to reduce the capacity utilization, he notes.

      “We hope that the situation will be resolved in the coming days without significant damage to export supplies,” says one of Interfax's interlocutors in the industry.

      Another source of the agency does not exclude that if the situation is not resolved, the industry may face a halt in production in the coming days.

      Seems like huge warning to our partners. As EU, Brazil and many other countries totally depend on Russian fertilizers.

    Coronavirus: mRNA vaccines will be integrated in food soon
    • The future of vaccines may look more like eating a salad than getting a shot in the arm. UC Riverside scientists are studying whether they can turn edible plants like lettuce into mRNA vaccine factories.

      Messenger RNA or mRNA technology, used in COVID-19 vaccines, works by teaching our cells to recognize and protect us against infectious diseases.

      One of the challenges with this new technology is that it must be kept cold to maintain stability during transport and storage. If this new project is successful, plant-based mRNA vaccines — which can be eaten — could overcome this challenge with the ability to be stored at room temperature.

      The project’s goals, made possible by a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, are threefold: showing that DNA containing the mRNA vaccines can be successfully delivered into the part of plant cells where it will replicate, demonstrating the plants can produce enough mRNA to rival a traditional shot, and finally, determining the right dosage.

      “Ideally, a single plant would produce enough mRNA to vaccinate a single person,” said Juan Pablo Giraldo, an associate professor in UCR’s Department of Botany and Plant Sciences who is leading the research, done in collaboration with scientists from UC San Diego and Carnegie Mellon University.

      “We are testing this approach with spinach and lettuce and have long-term goals of people growing it in their own gardens,” Giraldo said. “Farmers could also eventually grow entire fields of it.”

    Good quote: On purpose of social networks
    • The main idea that a person is trying to convey to others is that he has access to much more prestigious consumption than one might think about him. At the same time, he tries to explain to others that their type of consumption is much less prestigious than they were naive to think. All social maneuvers are subordinated to this. Moreover, only these questions evoke persistent emotions in people.
