Another German electric bus...

No idea if this is more than a dream, but it looks interesting.

It starts with a basic frame for 16,000 Euros:



Then you add modules, like this one for a minibus at around 20 grand:



There's a camper version for around 40K

You can order lithium batteries for up to 300 miles, and get rooftop solar charging panels.

IT's really pissing me off-- they keep playing that clip of Trump saying...

"I don't know her. She seems nice..." OR whatever...

He's missing the point that the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES has NO BUSINESS passing on random bullshit just because it sounds nice.

The PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES should once in a while just shut the fuck up.

And still it goes on...

A board member of the Republican Party of Wabasha County, Minn., resigned Tuesday after backlash over a Facebook post that compared mandatory coronavirus mask mandates to Nazis in the Holocaust.

Minnesota GOP Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan initially said that the Facebook group had been hacked before backtracking Tuesday.

“We are saddened by the vitriolic post and hope as we move forward that Republicans and Democrats alike will maintain the highest level of integrity, respect, and sensitivity,” Carnahan said in a statement. “The Wabasha County Board and MN GOP apologizes for this disappointing post.”

The board member has not been publicly identified.

China wants a Trump second term...

https://www.cnbc.com/2020/07/27/a-trump-second-term-could-give-china-an-advantage-analyst-says.html

“The reason is that at least, thus far, the way the Trump administration has acted and the perception internationally of that administration and what you see going on domestically inside the United States and the polarization inside the United States gives Beijing an advantage,” said Rodger Baker, senior vice president of strategic analysis at Stratfor, a consultancy.
What Beijing would really fear is a concerted U.S. policy and a coordinated international policy that constrains China, he added.
<...>


Basically-- they like a fucked up US administration. Gives them more freedom for their machinations around the world.

And, for those on the left who hated the TPP-- this is what you get.

I Just heard again today the Deborah Birx is not a doctor. This has got to stop...

from her Wiki:

From 1980 to 1994, Birx served as an active duty reserve officer in the United States Army. From 1994 to 2008, Birx was active duty regular Army, achieving the rank of Colonel.[11]

From 1980 to 1989, Birx worked as a physician at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center.[14] In 1981, Birx completed a one-year internship and did a two-year residency in internal medicine. From 1983 to 1986, she completed two fellowships in clinical immunology in the areas of allergies and diagnostics, where she worked in Anthony Fauci's lab.[4] From 1985 to 1989, Birx was the assistant chief of the Walter Reed Allergy/Immunology Service. Birx started her career as a clinician in immunology, eventually focusing on HIV/AIDS vaccine research.[4][14]

From 1986 to 1989, Birx worked at the National Institutes of Health as an investigator specializing in cellular immunology.[14]

Birx returned to Walter Reed, where from 1989 to 1995 she worked in the Department of Retroviral Research, first as an assistant chief and then as chief of the division. She was lab director in HIV-1 Vaccine Development for a year. Birx became the Director of the United States Military HIV Research Program at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, a position she held for nine years, from 1996 to 2005. In that position, Birx led the HIV vaccine clinical trial of RV 144, the first supporting evidence of any vaccine being effective in lowering the risk of contracting HIV.


No matter what you think about her work as a Trump stooge these days, she's got the background and bona fides for the job.She's just working for the wrong people.

From as far back as winning science fairs in high school, she has been a scientist and researcher. Having Jared and Pence looking over her shoulder and offering their sage advice must behaving its effects. And Trump's medical musings are icing on a very nasty cake.

China Orders U.S. to Shut Consulate in Chengdu-- retaliation for Houston

Source: NY Times

BEIJING — Retaliating for the Trump administration’s order to close China’s consulate in Houston, China announced on Friday that it had ordered the United States to shut its consulate in the southwestern city of Chengdu.

The tit-for-tat consulate closures were yet another twist in deteriorating relations between Washington and Beijing, perhaps the gravest one yet. Previous moves by the two sides have included visa restrictions, new travel rules for diplomats and the expulsion of foreign correspondents. By shutting down diplomatic missions, however, the two countries seem to be moving inexorably toward a deeper divide.

Half listening to Cuomo on CNN-- he's got doctor Gupta on talking about bullshit with testing...

He was in the OR about to do brain surgery but couldn't get a CoVID test for the patient!

All the other sophisticated tests were no problem, but this simple flu test had everyone suit up in superprotective gear because they couldn't do it. Or get an answer in a reasonable time.
