Minor News items - Not worth a thread of their own

The ladies on times radio yesterday afternoon said that the reason the sky is so cloudy this year is the sea is too warm, creating cloud. I have to write it quickly here before I forget - before I miss the boat 😆 i'll write it in the chemtrail section as soon as I get a chance, famous last words ...

 

... which reminds me that on the radio on the day of the coronation, or the day before - someone said that it's possible to clear the cloud for the ceremony, except for the environmental concerns - I can't remember which station that was, but the presenter completely ignored it

Gamma radiation spikes as explosions rock munitions depot in Ukraine

Explosions at Ukraine’s ammunition depot in Khmelnytsky are believed to have been caused by Russian missile strikes

NEW DELHI: A series of explosions at an ammunition depot in western Ukraine has led to a significant increase in gamma radiation levels, suggesting the release of depleted uranium dust into the air which could pose severe risk to public health.

 

The explosions in Khmelnytsky are believed to have been caused by Russian missile strikes. The resultant fire is being remotely extinguished by robots, according to Russian and Ukrainian experts.

 

Depleted uranium munitions, while typically emitting minimal gamma radiation, are known to pose risks when a large stockpile is destroyed, as is suspected in the Khmelnytsky incident.

 

The effects of gamma radiation can be particularly detrimental to cellular structures and DNA/RNA molecules, with an extended range of damage in fluids such as gas or liquid.

 

Meanwhile, the British Department of Defense (DoD) has confirmed that it provided depleted-uranium tank rounds to the Ukrainian armed forces, raising concerns that similar radio emissions could recur as the Russia-Ukraine war proceeds to more intensified battles.

Reports indicate that the detonated warehouse in Khmelnytsky contained a substantial quantity of depleted uranium shells, causing alarm among locals and prompting residents to evacuate nearby areas.

 

Dosimetric patrols are working in the city, conducting radiation background measurements in uncharacteristic locations. Previous measurements were concentrated around the Khmelnytsky Nuclear Power Plant but have now expanded to cover the regional center, western regions of the area, and Ternopil.

 

The prevailing wind direction, blowing westward at the time of the explosions, has raised concerns about the potential spread of radioactive particles toward Germany.

 

Yuri Kot, a political scientist, has stated that his sources confirm the presence of a large stockpile of depleted uranium shells in the destroyed Khmelnytsky warehouse.

 

Residents have expressed panic and are reportedly gathering their belongings and leaving the affected areas, including Khmelnytsky, Lviv, and Ternopil.

 

Following the explosions, gamma radiation levels in Khmelnytsky have continued to rise steadily. This surge is particularly concerning as depleted uranium typically emits only a low dose of gamma radiation, suggesting the destruction of a significant quantity of munitions and the release of uranium dust into the surrounding environment.

 

Authorities have yet to provide official statements regarding the ongoing work of dosimetric patrols and the extent of the damage caused by the explosions.

I used to joke about Intel Inside and Intelligence being within the hardware industry. Turns out that is not only true, its worse than conspiracy theory ever suggested

https://steemit.com/cyber/@nikflossus/intel-s-deep-state-backdoor-odin-s-eye - Literally hardcoded in to your chip, computer hibernating, in sleep or even appearing off intelligence have backdoor access to you at hardware level, far more powerful than software level sys administration rights. 

Intel's Management Engine (ME) is a core component of modern Intel chips that can provide an attacker with a powerful backdoor if compromised. ME cannot be completely disabled because of its role in initializing hardware, power management, and launching the main processor. Security researchers have long been worried by ME because it's impossible for anyone but Intel to audit for any backdoors, which has led to numerous attempts to disable it, including the me_cleaner project. Intel has refuted the backdoor accusations, saying that it does not put backdoors in its products nor give Intel control or access to computing systems without the explicit permission of the end user. The NSA budget request for 2013 contained a Sigint Enabling Project with the goal to "Insert vulnerabilities into commercial encryption systems, IT systems,..." and it has been conjectured that Intel ME and AMD Secure Technology might be part of that program.0 The libreboot project strongly recommends avoiding ME entirely, and the only way to do this is to avoid all generations of Intel hardware newer than ten years old.

 

Best get some AMD chips (until we find out about those being just as good for sigint.

AMD and ARM or any x86 based cpu has the same problem, i mentioned this a while back, spectre and meltdown revealing the bug feature in the design.

One million cancel broadband as living costs rise

I tend to notice the use of the one million figure a lot, in general, except today when I saw one billion something or other.

 

Side note; It's almost funny when 'we' mix up the two, and reminds me of an amusing scene in a book. Oh yes, it was Mccarthy's Bar.

Taking my daily painful walk through the online Sun today, I spotted two headline stories about why Phil and Holly need to repair their relationship. Living overseas, I don't get to watch their show, but did Phil's brother molest one of Holly's kids or something? If it isn't Katie Price it's this pair front and centre. Anyone would think the entire UK is obsessed with what's on the telly in the morning...

Meanwhile in the Ukraine, Air Marshal Zelensky is summoning the spirit of the summer of 1940. Here he is pictured in flying gear about to climb into his Hurricane F-16 nicknamed the 'Swiss Army Knife' to do battle over the channel Black Sea with Russia's air armada. Makes you proud doesn't it?

Now 'breaking' across all news sites, and strangely 'top news' on the BBC site:

 

Phillip Schofield leaves ITV’s This Morning

Quote

Phillip Schofield says he has agreed to step down from ITV’s This Morning “with immediate effect” after more than 20 years.

In a statement, he said: "I understand ITV has decided the current situation can't go on."

His departure comes after reports claimed relations between him and co-host Holly Willoughby had come under strain in recent weeks.

Not that I really care, I don't watch "This Morning" and to be honest I am sick of seeing 'news stories' about what happens on this show.

 

I might be interested to know more about the reason why 'relations had become strained' as there clearly is more going on behind the scenes than is being let on.

The two back in happier times. As for the young man in the middle, Matthew McGreevy, who looks to be well groomed.

Agree 100% - sick to death of shite MSM clickbait and coverage of dodgy fuckers like these...Ant & Dec, Royals, etc etc etc. Deliberately grinding people's brains to mush.
