Here are pictures and video of the plane incident at DIA today. I collected these for a friend of mine who was a frequent flyer prior to COVID-19. She’s especially interested in plane accidents, because her husband’s father died in a notorious PanAm accident in 1968. (en.wikipedia.org)

Amazon changed traffic light timing during union drive, county officials say (The Verge)

As part of its ongoing fight over an Alabama warehouse’s efforts to unionize, Amazon reportedly changed the timing of a traffic light outside the warehouse, according to reporting by More Perfect Union. Union organizers at the site had previously accused the company of altering the timing so that pro-union workers would not be able to canvass workers while stopped at the light.

Until recently, the altered timing on the traffic light outside the factory had been dismissed as a rumor. But More Perfect Union confirmed with Jefferson County officials that last year, Amazon notified the county of traffic delays during shift changes and asked for the light to be changed. On December 15th, the county increased the green light duration in an effort to clear workers off the worksite faster. There’s no indication that the county was aware of the ongoing organizing drive or any effect the traffic light changes might have on the effort.

I feel a rant coming on.

Fuck you billionaire hoarders. We revile cat ladies, but we worship you. You are the worst hoarders of all.

Who does a cat lady hurt? She hurts herself, her family, and her friends. Emotional hurt for the most part, but hurt for sure.

Who does the billionaire dollar hoarder hurt? Millions, possibly billions of people. Think about the earth wide impact of a Billionaire money hoarder. Those fuckers destroy lives. And for what? They have enough money for generations, yet it’s never, ever enough.

If I get this correctly, the plane that lost the engine flying out of Dallas to Hawaii was 777, correct?

I thought 777s were not allowed by the FAA to go farther than a thousand miles over open water, exactly because it only has two engines and if one fails then the plane has only one engine to make it safely to a landing strip.

On my trips to and from Japan I rode on 777s (when they were still new-ish), but United had to fly them close enough to Anchorage in order to meet said FAA regs, making the trip to or from Japan longer than it would have been otherwise.

Another GOP Rep Fled Texas—Via Private Jet—at Height of Deep Freeze Crisis (Daily Beast)

Texas state lawmaker Gary Gates lost power at his Fort Bend County home on Tuesday evening, and on Wednesday morning he hopped on his private jet to the magical land of Orlando, Florida.

His ill-timed escape came on the same day Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and his family flew to Cancun, just as the extreme winter storm was unfolding into a once-in-a-generation crisis in Texas. Millions were left without power or running water as temperatures dipped below freezing, killing at least 30 people.

Gates, a Republican, said he made the decision after his pipes burst, 30 percent of his home flooded and he began to see mold.

“My wife is still recovering from an illness she has been battling for two weeks, and the room of my adult daughter, who is mentally handicapped and still lives with us, flooded,” Gates said.

He doesn’t lie well, and his staff was putting out contradictory things to what he was saying at the same time.

Few years back some of the local high school kids played mailbox baseball all up and down our street. Next morning nearly every mailbox in the neighborhood was down. Luckily my mailbox is made of quarter inch rolled steel and didn’t have much more than some paint scratches on it so it was just a matter of remounting it, didn’t need to get a new one.

I could be wrong, but I suspect something will be done about those bills. Not in time to prevent all sorts of damage to people’s lives and finances, but this is a really bad look for business-friendly Texas.

Dunno if it was here on on another blog, but I recall reading (this morning, I think): the account of someone who dealt with the mailbox-vandalism issue by setting a 10’ section of steel steam pipe deep in concrete for the post, then welding a 1/4-in thick cylinder of steel to the top of it. The mailbox went into the cylinder, and reportedly, had survived numerous “incidents”…..

There are regulations in my state that say mailbox posts need to be breakaway so if a car crashes into one it doesn’t kill anyone..

I wonder if Musk has realized that if he moves Tesla production to Texas he’ll need to build independent power supply, water supply, sewage treatment and possibly more of the infrastructure he enjoys in a civilization (aka California) that the Texas GQP refuses to provide out of greed and hate? Or is his own libertarian impulse enough to make him spend that much extra? Or is he just going to eat it when the next super cold snap causes huge damage to his factory?

It’s not opposite. Conservative (politics) is about gaining and maintaining power. That is the be-all and end-all of the philosophy for hundreds of years.

Putting state money into regulations or improvements to infrastructure does not increase or maintain conservative power. Voting restrictions and abortion laws do.

It’s why President Eisenhower had to sell the Interstate Highway System as a national defence project rather than an infrastructure, commerce, jobs, or social project.

Why isn’t broadband more available in rural Nebraska? (Omaha World-Herald)

Short answer: Capitalism and conservatives.

LINCOLN — Kenny Reinke has more than one story about living without high-speed internet in a rural area.

Like those times last spring when he drove his son to a high hill near their farm north of Neligh so he could do his school-related Zoom meetings using a cellphone hot spot.

Or the nights when his family of six has to ration use of their satellite-provided internet to avoid hitting a data cap that limits the amount of data they can use without an extra charge.

And he is concerned that the increased use of internet technology in agriculture — which already means moisture-detecting sensors in farm fields, irrigation systems run via a digital link and virtual farm shows and seminars — will leave his operation in the dust.

“Every year we get further and further behind,” Reinke said.

Reinke’s stories aren’t new or novel.

And during recent state legislative hearings on the subject, one question kept coming up: Why isn’t rural broadband service more available now, given the hundreds of millions of dollars in public funds already funneled to private firms to help provide it?

(more)

Because those firms are not held accountable by Republicans.

40
Anymouse 🌹🏡😷  Feb 20, 2021 • 8:09:28pm

In Nebraska, an estimated 80,000 rural residents lack internet that delivers speeds of 25/3 (25 megabits per second download and 3 Mbps upload), which is the current federal definition of broadband. Nearly double that number, 150,000, lack 100/100 speed, which is broadly considered to be real broadband today.

The current definition includes me.

On Wednesday, a Pius X student published an opinion article in the school newspaper* titled “Contradictory focus of Black Lives Matter.” The overtly racist column caused a stir, with statements such as, “The Black Lives Matter movement, to fulfill their stated mission, would do more for their cause by focusing on countering Planned Parenthood propaganda than by rioting to counter police mistreatment.” For a white student at a Catholic school to hold problematic views is unsurprising, and not even the biggest issue at hand. Rather, the Journalism teacher and school administration are at fault for allowing this piece to reach publication and for failing to correct the student. An “apology” from the school was posted online: “some have received the opinion piece as denying that there is more work to be done to remove all elements of hatred, prejudice and racism from our hearts and our institutions.” This is insincere and places blame on readers for their reactions. The administrative statement also refuses to assume responsibility for what is the big issue here: better educating students - and teachers - on issues of race.

Sorry that you continue to suffer under the know-nothing hegemony.

We do prioritize those with health issues, and as you can see from the breakdown of the age brackets many middle age and younger people have been vaccinated:

One of the core beliefs of modern conservatism, as expressed by now ex-mayor Boyd, is that people with “genuine” needs will find a way to fulfill those needs, while the people who don’t are either liars or lazy fucks undeserving of help. This goes hand-in-glove with the story published the other day about how rich folks are finding it hard to skip to the front of the line for CV vaccine shots, coinciding with shitheels like DeSantis steering vials of the vaccine to those rich white communities in FL that bankroll state Repubs.

I found out why Kaiser in Southern California has been complaining about not having enough vaccines and is way behind the rest of the state in vaccinations.

Apparently the State of California was not giving Kaiser vaccines in proportion to the percentage of the state who have coverage through Kaiser. Apparently a new agreement has been reached so that should no longer be the case moving forward.

I received an email explaining this from them today and it claimed that they should be moving into the 65+ phase shortly. So far they have only been vaccinating health care employees and people over 75.

This is the ethanol plant ordered by the state to shut down immediately, over a year ago (owners lol fuqueyoo), after being linked to groundwater pollution, agricultural land pollution, and bee colony collapse across North America.

The plant is the only such plant in the nation which accepts excess, pesticide-laden seed to turn into ethanol. The mash was sold (since it can’t be used for livestock) to farmers around the plant as a “soil treatment.” The poison in the seed is directly linked by the University of Nebraska at Lincoln to bee colony collapse.

Venezuelan Women Lose Access to Contraception, and Control of Their Lives (New York Times)

As Venezuela enters its eighth year of economic crisis, a deeply personal drama is playing out inside the home: Millions of women are no longer able to find or afford birth control, pushing many into unplanned pregnancies at a time when they can barely feed the children they already have.

Around Caracas, the capital, a pack of three condoms costs $4.40 — three times Venezuela’s monthly minimum wage of $1.50.

Birth control pills cost more than twice as much, roughly $11 a month, while an IUD, or intrauterine device, can cost more than $40 — more than 25 times the minimum wage. And that does not include a doctor’s fee to have the device put in.

With the cost of contraception so far out of reach, women are increasingly resorting to abortions, which are illegal and, in the worst cases, can cost them their lives.

Georgia state representative Rev. Sharon Henderson (D-House District 113) has introduced a bill to mandate school prayer. The bill would also repeal any act or portion of an act which conflicts with her bill if passed.

She assumed office January 11 of this year. She had no challenger in 2020 and received 100% of the vote. The district is primarily rural around the town of Portersdale, and includes part of Covington.

The prayer is very specific in the bill.

We pray for all students, teachers, and staff who work here.
We give You all the children who study here.
We pray our school will be a safe place to learn great skills and talents.
May this be a place where we love to learn and a place where we learn to love,
A place where everyone is respected and all are deeply valued.
Bless us to maintain good health and protect us from evil.
We ask these blessings through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Fuqueyoo Jews, Muslims, Hindus, atheists, or anyone else who is not the specific type of Christian Rep. Henderson envisions in Georgia public schools.

This bill is wildly unconstitutional, but with the wingnuts going to the courts trying to overturn bans on mandatory school prayer, who knows what happens.

With Democrats like her, who needs Republican theocrats? (Narrator: We have plenty of people in our party who think you can’t be American if you’re not Christian either, but we usually don’t elect them.)

Fuqueyoo Jews, Muslims, Hindus, atheists, or anyone else who is not the specific type of Christian Rep. Henderson envisions in Georgia public schools.

This bill is wildly unconstitutional, but with the wingnuts going to the courts trying to overturn mandatory school prayer, who knows what happens.

With Democrats like her, who needs Republican theocrats? (Narrator: We have plenty of people in our party who think you can’t be American if you’re not Christian either, but we usually don’t elect them.)

About the only difference between the two parties right now is one party runs religious fundies and claims they have “no other choice” because moderate/liberal candidates couldn’t win in those districts/states, while the other party runs religious fundies and is proud of it.

Well, though she only represents one state house district, the bill would affect every student.

Georgia residents here (including Christians) should be hopping mad and telling her to pull this unconstitutional excrement from the legislative calendar. If I was a religious person, it seems to me that a state lawmaker would have the power to tell my child exactly how to pray would have me standing on her office desk.

Moreover, school prayer is not unconstitutional: Any child can do it as long as it doesn’t interrupt school activities.

In the category of religion poisons everything:

AN anti-abortion group’s false claims that the Covid-19 vaccine is linked to infertility have been criticised by the World Health Organisation.

Precious Life, which is based in Northern Ireland, has issued leaflets warning people against getting immunised due to concerns the jabs are “rushed” and that excess deaths are reportedly linked to the jab - but do not provide evidence to support this.

The group also incorrectly claim the vaccines are “developed using cell lines from aborted babies” and that they could affect fertility.

And they state that government guidance advises against pregnant women and those who are breastfeeding receiving the jab, when this is not the case.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) warned this type of misinformation is putting “lives at risk”.

Damn, midnight in South Austin.

I tracked down the primary water leak to the converted garage out back yesterday. A rusted zinc-plated triple junction. We’ve been without water for two days, and I’m supposed to pull permits and hire a licensed plumber to do anything, but I had no interest in pouring (and paying for) tens of thousands of gallons a day on the ground. So we had our water cut off before the meter on the City side of the main.

Today I tore down the plumbing out back and got a 1/2” cap. Screwed it on and turned on the water to the front house (illegal). Now we have hot and cold water for bathing, but not drinking, it still has to be boiled.

The washer and dryer are still out back and I know that a bunch of the copper piping out there has burst, so no clothes washing. I have called numerous plumbers, and they all have waiting lists of up to one to two months .

We’ll get together with the neighbors and barter for services. I’ll be damned if I’ll pay emergency rates when I’ve controlled the emergency and am just dealing with nits.

German authorities insulting people’s intelligence by claiming it’s not a second class vaccine and some being outright rude about the doubters didn’t help things either. Fact is, it’s both significantly less effective against the standard variant and while it’s very effective against it in heavy cases (i. e. defends against hospitalizations/deaths), apparently it is more or less useless against the SA variant in whatever form, and since people are worried that if they take AZ they will be the last in line to get the good vaccines when they arrive, their behavior is understandable.

It wasn’t raining when we built the house, so there’s no roof.

Who needs home insulation because it never gets that ____ (insert hot/cold). Mind you, regulations dictating insulation are prospective only, and homes built before current code don’t need the level of insulation that modern homes do.

Thing is, that we’ve known that better insulation - for pipes, homes, and businesses, could protect against some of the damage we’ve seen over the past 10 days - and reduce strain on power grids and suppliers because of less energy needed to keep the homes/businesses _____ (warm/cold).

GOP doesn’t care about reality, so why would they care about a winter storm that was foreseeable.

Oh, and while we’re at it, Cornyn is busy noting that nuclear power “mostly” did alright.

Mostly is doing a lot of heavy lifting there.

Texas has 2 operating nuclear power plants, each with two reactors. One reactor went offline due to the weather at one plant, while the other plant was at capacity.

That means total power generating capacity was at 75% thanks to storm. That’s better than gas/coal/oil, but even ERCOT noted that wind overperformed based on what they planned for. Despite all the caterwauling from the know nothing GOPers, wind power didn’t cause the outages - the lack of planning and lack of winterization of fossil fuel plants did.

That’s entirely on the GOP that has done nothing for past 20 years despite controlling the TX legislator and governor’s office. They had a similar storm in 2011, and they knew that they were supposed to act, but chose not to.

Now? Dozens are dead due to the cold, millions lost power, businesses suffered, water is still limited, and we’re listening to GOPers shake and bake and deflect and project their failures on Democrats while #FledCruz jetted off to Cancun to warm up and other GOPers fled to Florida. They don’t care about their constituents. They don’t care about anyone or anything except themselves and enriching/empowering themselves.

I would go buy two today. One of them is the mailbox you will actually use. The second one is the one you fill with concrete and switch the first one with every day after the mail comes.

These ones you wouldn’t need to fill with concrete, they’re like 8mm (1/3”) steel plate…

re: #122 lawhawk

From what I recall the nuclear reactor that went offline in Texas had an (unspecified) sensor freezing up. Because of the super-ultra-high safety requirements of nuclear power thanks to Godzilla! movies the operators weren’t legally allowed to override the failed sensor and keep the reactor operating. The other three reactors provided about 3.5GW of electrical power for the state when demand peaked at about 68GW if I remember correctly.

AIUI Texas gets most of its electricity from gas as well as a lot of its home heating and other energy requirements. The extra load on gas demand and pipeline infrastructure failures contributed to a lot of the loss of generating capacity and the blackouts since gas needs pumps and other electrically-powered systems to get to the consumers.

re: #134 mmmirele

I’ve been working from home since last March. Our company made it official after last november that our office was WFH permanently though another location in our area would be available for partial in-office use.

I had been suffering with an older task chair since I have my dad’s drafting table and have it set to standing height. After we got word, I splurged (but the Mrs. refused to allow me an Aeron chair splurge) on a new chair. The one I got has worked out great with lots of cushion and support and I am in a much better position ergonomically.

Well, though she only represents one state house district, the bill would affect every student.

Georgia residents here (including Christians) should be hopping mad and telling her to pull this unconstitutional excrement from the legislative calendar. If I was a religious person, it seems to me that a state lawmaker would have the power to tell my child exactly how to pray would have me standing on her office desk.

Moreover, school prayer is not unconstitutional: Any child can do it as long as it doesn’t interrupt school activities.

I am remembering the case Santa Fe Independent School District v Doe (2000) en.wikipedia.org . The prayers at the football games were quite sectarian (Baptist) in nature and the Doe plaintiffs were minority Catholic and Mormon. (At one point the federal district court judge had to order the school district to stop trying to identify the anonymous plaintiffs, presumably for harassment purposes.) The Supreme Court overturned this not because of the sectarian nature of the prayers, but because the prayers were not private, but utilized the resources of the public school system at a public school football game.

I personally get LIVID whenever someone mentions school prayer to me because I still remember being that 7 YO kid on the first day of class at a new school, five years after Abington v. Schempp (1963) and the very sweet teacher told me, “Deana, we are not pigs, we pray before we eat.” Fuck that nonsense. I already had enough problems with undiagnosed high functioning autism and being reminded I didn’t fit in…! Plus, Jesus told people to pray in secret but I didn’t know that at age 7.

re: #88 steve_davis

just a point: jesus did not teach the inherent goodness of humanity. he thought we were all a bunch of degenerates and that he was fulfilling a messianic prophecy designed to salvage the Jews from the Fall. Doesn’t mean he wasn’t kind to people and didn’t believe in loving one’s neighbor as oneself, but he certainly didn’t believe in the “inherent goodness” of anybody.

Uhm. I’m just going to point out that based on my understanding, Judaism does not have the idea that we’re all degenerates from the Fall. This is the idea of “original sin” and comes straight from Augustine of Hippo (who also believed it was passed down via sex). We’ve have to live with this idea for 1600 years, because it was basically put into coherent thought by a guy who never married his concubine but had no problem taking their child away from her. He had obvious ISSUES with sex and sexuality and never for a moment thought about things like “consent.”

I think I might have mentioned that I went to the doctor on Thursday for a regularly scheduled diabetes checkup. While there, I discussed the prior week’s gut illness and we decided (actually, he talked me into it) getting a COVID nose swab just on general principles since I’d been so ill and not able to eat for four days.

The results: negative. But I already kind of figured that out because I hadn’t infected my mother and brother, whose house I visited last weekend because mom got insistent about wanting the bras I ordered NOW PLEASE. So I brought them over and then fell asleep on my mother’s bed because just driving six miles was strenuous.

A number of flu vaccines over years provided well less than 50% immunity. One from 2004 was estimated to be only 10% effective. Basically any effectiveness can help tip the overall transmission rate to less than 1, at which point the outbreak will die out eventually.

I found out why Kaiser in Southern California has been complaining about not having enough vaccines and is way behind the rest of the state in vaccinations.

Apparently the State of California was not giving Kaiser vaccines in proportion to the percentage of the state who have coverage through Kaiser. Apparently a new agreement has been reached so that should no longer be the case moving forward.

I received an email explaining this from them today and it claimed that they should be moving into the 65+ phase shortly. So far they have only been vaccinating health care employees and people over 75.

I’m over 65, Kaiser sent me a text on Friday scheduling me for my first shot Monday at 1PM because I am on Humira which depresses my immune system.

I seem to recall markers here and there. And the plows can’t wander too far off the road because of the ditches. I think the mail box generally got hit after a heavy snow and the initial plowing totally buried the mailbox (and maybe the marker posts) and a later plowing was trying to get the road back to a full 2-lane width. I think his current house location has less of an issue due to: (1) Mailbox here is on a level whereas previous location was on a hill that probably got a lot more attention from plows. (2) Current mailbox is not alone with next mailbox at least 50 yards away, but is instead part of a cluster of mailboxes together and on the same side of the road. (Hmm, mailbox flocking behavior as an evolutionary survival technique?)

Start to open door and Floof Cat immediately starts hissing. Neighbor Cat is sitting on the stoop and decides he wants to come in! I get door closed before Neighbor Cat gets in while Floof Cat flees into the dining room. (Neighbor came by a few minutes later and retrieved her cat.)

2) I open upstairs window behind computer desk a bit so Floof Cat can sit on the sill and sniff air as compensation. Ice falls on porch roof right in front of the window, or a bird bounced off the screen.

AOC did more for Texas with three days of fundraising than Corny and Flyin’ Ted have done in their collective tenures.

Now Republicans in Texas LOVE Socialism

Never count out Socialism to bail you out when all that future Conservative lobbyist gravy money is on the line.

Secessionists. Libertarians. ….Fucking hypocrites. Every last one of them.

Schmuck Todd: “How blue collar Democrats are flocking to the Republican party.” *CLICK*

re: #169 🌹UOJB!

Memories of the 1964 PA Democratic Presidential Primary when George Wallace ran against LBJ and the Catholic Churches in my hometown backed Wallace and attacked LBJ over the Civil Rights Act which was being filibustered in the Senate.

It’s clear that Joe has answered Chuck’s question: most white blue collar Democrats have always opposed Civil Rights and competition from people of color. They long for a return to the day when only their voices are heard and others are silenced; when those working class jobs are designated for whites — and male whites — only.

They are fine with this: it’s the Republican way. When you have a captive market and you have direct access to their money through autopay, charge what you want and get rewarded!

re: #189 retired cynic

you might try a gabion mailbox…. i.e. build a metal structure. place your mailbox inside it, fill the remaining space with rocks. sturdy, unlikely to be messed with and can still be aesthetically pleasing.

My brother-in-law covered up a regular mailbox with small stones and cement. If anyone hits it with a car or a baseball bat they are going to have one really big dent on their car.
