1:10 mark. GOOSEBUMPS


So, anything interesting happen today?

Been slammed with work all day

Did see Michelle Obama has a new cooking show for kids coming on Netflix. That’s cool

$500,000,000 per month. Half a billion dollars PER MONTH. For 20 YEARS

That's how much Jeff Bezos (who just retired from CEO of Amazon) could spend EVERY F*CKING MONTH for the next 20 YEARS!

And he'd still have $75 BILLION leftover!

Tell your members of Congress: We need COBRA subsidies!

It's been more than ten months since theatres across the country closed their doors due to the pandemic. Theatre artists around the country remain out of work, and expect their industry to be among the last to reopen.

NEW - Ukraine Launches Criminal Probe Into Meddling In 2020 U.S. Election

https://www.rferl.org/a/ukraine-criminal-probe-us-election-meddling/31074465.html
Ukraine has launched a criminal investigation into attempts to interfere in the November 2020 U.S. presidential election.

Andriy Yermak, the head of the office of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, said on January 28 that Ukraine would do everything in its power to bring to justice forces within the country and outside it who attempted to damage relations between Ukraine and the United States.

"The State Bureau of Investigation has opened a criminal case," Yermak was quoted as saying in an interview to the Ukrainian news outlet NV that was posted on the presidential website.

...

The U.S. Treasury Department on January 11 imposed sanctions on several Ukrainian individuals and entities, accusing them of U.S. election interference and associating with a pro-Russian Ukrainian lawmaker linked to efforts by then President Donald Trump's allies to find compromising information on President Joe Biden and his son.



oh I do love this.

Capitol rioter's attorney claims he has to 'deprogram' his client from 'cult leader' Trump

Garrett Miller’s attorney Clint Broden appeared Tuesday on Cuomo Prime Time. Miller has been charged with his involvement in the assault on the U.S. Capitol, as well as making death threats towards Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Broden claims his client was manipulated by former President Donald Trump.

“I have referred to him as a cult leader,” said Broden. “Donald Trump was a cult leader. You have somebody like Garrett Miller, who is not very politically involved, hadn’t even voted much earlier in life, loses his job and gets focused on the internet and you have, as I said, a cult leader telling him to do X, Y and Z to protect the country.”

Trump recently became the first president to be impeached twice, due to his alleged involvement in inciting an insurrection. Broden claims his client was manipulated by Trump. Miller has since apologized for his threats towards Ocasio-Cortez, but Broden says he still needs time away from Trump’s rhetoric.

“That’s what cult leaders do,” said Broden. “They prey on vulnerable people. And not to excuse what Miller did, as you said, his comments are vile, disgusting, what have you. But without going into attorney-client privilege, I'm having some discussions with him and really we're trying to deprogram him.”

If *this* was an option for your route, would you choose it or stick to flying? (HyperLoop)




imho, airlines would either have to invest or offer a competing, similar product or potentially face obsolescence.

*Assuming* cost is on par with airfare, I'd choose this any time.

These are the stamps you are looking for...

R2-D2 once delivered the Death Star plans to the Rebellion; soon, the plucky astromech — and nine other Star Wars droids — will help your mail reach its destination, too.

The U.S. Postal Service announced today a new series of Star Wars stamps, all devoted to our favorite galactic droids. Designed by Greg Breeding with William Gicker serving as art director, the collection will be available on a pane of 20 stamps and feature droids from both film and animation, including IG-11, R2-D2, K-2SO, D-O, L3-37, BB-8, C-3PO, a Gonk droid, 2-1B surgical droid, and Chopper. Look for these droid-tastic stamps to arrive in spring 2021 and check them out below!

...

These droids are a nod to Lucasfilm’s, as well as its parent company, Disney’s, commitment to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) learning and the continued collaboration between Star Wars: Force for Change and global pre-K-12 nonprofit organization FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology).

Star Wars: Force for Change and FIRST have joined forces to expand access to STEM learning to more young people around the world, and to help them envision a brighter, more inclusive future.

wait... Covid relief checks via Executive Order?

I've read that Biden has signed several EOs, one of which would entail $1,400 checks to individuals for Covid relief

I didn't think that was possible. It's part of his $1.9 Trillion relief package. But doesn't Congress have to vote on it?
