China’s biggest salt producer urged people against panic buying…There is a belief in China that iodized salt will ward off the effects of nuclear radiation.
What are the Chinese Dredging Ships doing in Manila Harbor?
“According to the Speaker last night, he’s wondering who is monitoring Chinese ships in Manila Bay because all of them are Chinese vessels doing the dredging, doing the reclamation. As of the last count, they are almost 100 there; if each ship has 30 personnel, then that’s 3,000 already. The Speaker is wondering who is watching these people, monitoring,” Tulfo said in a mix of English and Filipino.
“The news from the Speaker, what he said was like personnel was going off the vessel at night, so our national security is under threat if these people are members of the People’s Liberation Army? What if they are members of China’s intelligence community, gathering information, videos, and pictures of vital installations? How would we fare?” he asked.

“This same company was responsible for the building of an air base and naval base of China in the West Philippine Sea, so ironic ‘di ba? And now they are here, nagre-reclamation sila. So how would we monitor if they’re really a legitimate construction firm? Kasi they’re owned by the (Chinese) government eh,” he said.
** In Ukraine (h/t Claudio) that the Russians are redeploying the 76th GAAD speaks to the growing momentum of the Ukrainians’ 2023 counteroffensive, which kicked off with simultaneous armored assaults along several axes in southern and eastern Ukraine.
** Wendall Duffield (USGS, retired) and his colleagues established the age of Merriam Crater on the east side of Arizona’s San Francisco volcanic field at ca. 20,000 years. There’s good reason to believe that basalt lava flows from Merriam Crater temporarily dammed the Little Colorado leading to the formation of Grand Falls several miles to the east. The nearby Sproul (the smaller feature in this image) is a large elliptical spatter cone with low ramparts of spatter, agglutinate, and rootless flows. I’m on an amateur geology kick dealing with the Colorado Plateau where I live. I’m just sharing a bit for shits and giggles.
** Pedo Joe in one of his now accustomed angry “get off my grass” moods dared the press to find just one of his policies/objectives that has not worked. Silence followed. Perhaps it was polite to say nothing, given even the media knows almost every enacted Biden policy has failed.
** If you’re making a lot of money from racism, the last thing that you want is for racism to go away.
** Also known as Dinornis, it was a huge, flightless bird that lived until the 1500s in New Zealand. It went extinct due to reckless hunting by the native people of the area, who sought the fur, meat, and eggs that the carcasses of this species provided.
It is a subspecies of the Moa, which generally varies in size, with the largest ones being those of the Dinornis.
Specifically, these ‘giants’ measured up to 3.6 meters in height and could weigh up to 300 kg, with one of the highest recorded sexual dimorphisms** in favor of the female gender ever recorded in nature (280%).
A true dinosaur of the new millennium.
** Sexual dimorphism, is the differences in appearance between males and females of the same species, such as in color, shape, size, etc. Today in our woke society it’s sexist to suggest that there is any difference in appearance based on cisgender. Admiral Dick Levine would be an example of no sexual dimorphism. Both males and females can be chest feeders, egg carriers, and birthing people based on the US Public Health Service.
** It’s easy to win an election if your opponent is in prison and you count the votes.
