BREAKING: How Fighting Against Climate Change is Killing People in China

While Greta Thunberg travels around the world blaming adults for stealing her dreams and her childhood, an attempt to fight climate change is causing dozens of deaths in China.

For many villages where public heating systems are still unavailable, people were forced to buy more expensive so-called “clean coals” that allegedly could reduce the emission of several gases harmful to the climate.

Will Putin Severe Ties with China for Stealing Space and Nuclear Weapons Technologies?

China has been actively involved in espionage against Russia after the collapse of the  Soviet Union in 1991. In the last century, China has not been known for many inventions in the space field, but instead as been a successful copycat. The route to copying patented and classified inventions leads to espionage. The facts prove themselves. Even though China has the highest numbers of STEM grads under President’s Xi politics, still China is not a leader in the field. Also, Chinese education focuses on being a great follower, but not a leader, since the communist model does not allow room for individualistic views.

Sensational New Study Claims Fake News Existed in Babylonian Era

This week the research by Dr Martin Worthington has been published pertaining to the 3,000-year-old Babylonian story of Noah and the Ark.   Noah’s Ark is the vessel in the Genesis flood narrative through which God spares Noah, his family, and examples of all the world’s animals from a world-engulfing flood. The story in Genesis is repeated, with variations, in the Quran, where the ark appears as Safina Nūḥ. There could be a reason why thus far the location of Noah’s ark has been unsuccessful.

Why is Russia Planning to Send 82 Tonnes of Nuclear Material to China?

Russia is planning to send 82 tonnes of monazite from the Ural region to China. The proposal was discussed on November 6. Monazite is a reddish-brown phosphate mineral containing rare-earth metals. It occurs usually in small, isolated crystals. Since the start of atomic projects in the Soviet Union in the 1930s, Siberia has been one of the regions where monazite in the river sands was extracted for its Thorium, a naturally-occurring, slightly radioactive metal discovered in 1828 by the Swedish chemist Jons Jakob Berzelius, who named it after Thor, the Norse god of thunder.

Russia Announces Gonets 2.0 Satellite Communications System – Full Steam Ahead for Putin’s New Iron Curtain?

Russia announced a new project pertaining to the satellite system Gonets 2.0. The system will have satellite phone options and a myriad of government  applications. It is on par with Putin’s plan to have Russia closed off in the same way as Russia is developing its own intranet, similar to the Great Fire Wall of China and eliminating privacy. The deployment of the system is scheduled for 2024. It will also have large data storage capabilities and the ability to create automatic subsystems. Russia estimates by 2025 that their satellite channel will be used by millions of devices in Russia. Besides the military applications, Gonets 2.0 can be used in the drone, energy, transport, oil and gas industries across Russia and some of the former Soviet block nations, like Belarus.

The Hong Kong government has prohibited activist Joshua Wong, one of the most prominent faces of the pro-democracy movement, from running in the forthcoming district-level elections in the city. “The candidate cannot possibly comply with the requirements of the relevant electoral laws, since advocating or promoting ‘self-determination’ is contrary to the content of the declaration that the law requires a candidate to make to uphold the Basic Law and pledge allegiance to the [Hong Kong Special Administrative Region],” said Laura Aron, a Hong Kong electoral official in a statement, made public to the media.

Law, Privacy and Genome Human Rights Failure in Russia – Putin’s Fascination with Hitler’s Eugenics Project

The Human Genome Organization (HUGO) and the European Union developed genetic information privacy regulations to protect the public.

In 2014 the HUGO Committee on Ethics, Law and Society (CELS) presented a human rights approach to an international code of conduct for genomic and clinical data sharing. The code of conduct is supposed to prevent human rights violations during the research of genomes, allowing enough protection to allow scientific research in the genome field.
