Louisiana Shell refinery left spewing chemicals after Hurricane Ida


Black smoke rises from Shell’s petrochemical plant in Norco, Louisana, after Hurricane Ida knocked out the facility’s power.

Power outages from the storm have left air quality tracking systems out of commission, making public health concern hard to gauge

You can get #cotton #bags pretty much everywhere. How did an environmental #solution become part of the #problem?


source: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/08/24/style/cotton-totes-climate-crisis.html
An organic cotton tote needs to be used 20,000 times to offset its overall impact of production, according to a 2018 study by the Ministry of Environment and Food of Denmark. That equates to daily use for 54 years — for just one bag.
...
It’s also associated with forced labor, thanks to revelations about the treatment of Uyghurs in #Xinjiang, #China, which produces 20 percent of the world’s cotton and supplies most Western fashion brands.
...
You can’t, for example, just put a #tote in a #compost bin: Maxine Bédat, a director at the New Standard Institute, a nonprofit focused on fashion and sustainability, said she has “yet to find a municipal compost that will accept textiles.”
...
Some brands are turning to other #textile solutions. The British designer Ally Capellino recently swapped cotton for #hemp, while Ms. Hindmarch introduced a new version of her original tote, this time made from recycled water bottles; Nordstrom also uses similar bags in its stores.

Ökonomisch war das letztes Mal 1996/1997-2001 zumal kein Erfolgsschlager:

"By 2001 the per capita income of the 25 million population was under $200, and the country was close to total economic collapse."

#iFixit #CEO names and shames tech giants for right to #repair obstruction

"California #Apple stops providing service after seven years, so this was at seven years and Apple have warehouses full of spare parts, and rather than selling that out in the marketplace -- so someone like me who eagerly would've bought them -- they were paying the recycler to destroy them," Wiens said.
...
Weins also pointed to an example involving a #Microsoft #Surface laptop.

" [iFixit]rated it on our #repairability score, we normally rate products from one to 10; the Surface laptop got a zero. It had a glued-in battery … we had to actually cut our way into the product and destroyed it in the process of trying to get inside," he said.

  • Full names
  • Phone numbers
  • Physical addresses
  • Geolocation records
  • LinkedIn username and profile URL
  • Personal and professional experience/background
  • Genders

The rosy outlook for high-tech companies like Foxconn, TSMC and nameyourIThardwarecompany in Taiwan sometimes makes you believe all things are good there. Well, it is not that easy, and certainly not for everyone. Graduates are already lured across the Strait with a multiple-times salary.

Taiwan’s punishing work culture is forcing young people to game the system

A new HIV vaccine with a 97% antibody response rate in phase I human trials. It is based on the Moderna's COVID vaccine.


One positive outcome of the COVID19 pandemic is that the medical science made a giant leap toward the vaccine for AIDS based on the similarities between the 2 viruses.

This is a wonderful news.

#Google: Overall, we felt that #blocking third-party #cookies outright without viable alternatives for the ecosystem was irresponsible, and even harmful, to the free and open web we all enjoy.

And that, my dear users, is what you get when you have paralysed your last brain cells with cocaine in a global corporation and believe your own propaganda. Whoever believes that freedom on the internet would be endangered without third-party cookies is unfortunately hopelessly trapped in the capitalist filter bubble and far beyond good and evil.

UK now has a new Flag law!


Heil the Fuhrer!

A successful distraction move by the British Trump to change the discussion subject and people's attention from his complete failure in handling the pandemic by ignoring it for months and putting business before safety and health of the nation, total and complete failure in Brexit negotiation and implementations, total and complete failure in handling the economy and an unbelievable criminal behavior in regards of refugees seeking asylum in the country.
