Every year around Thanksgiving, @adam finds a story or two about a "Secret Santa" that pays off all the layaway items at some random Walmart. Millions in ad value with all of the M5M coverage. The "Secret" was that Walmart was most likely paying for the items to get the free coverage. Walmart stopped layaway after last year so watch to see what they do instead. I don't think any major retailers offer layaway anymore. It's all high interest credit to screw the unbanked.
Regarding Australian coal in China and closing European nuclear plants, China has 49 nuclear plants in operation now (47 GW), 17 currently under construction (18 GW) and another 100 reactors on the drawing board (100 GW) In other news, China's French nuclear plant construction partner, Framatome, has reached out to the US for permission to share technical assistance in order to resolve an "imminent radiological threat". #ChinaSyndrome

Covid medical exception/accomodation form for US federal contractors, needs to be signed by "medical provider" (Dr., D.C?)

It's hard to hear about people having to make decisions about employer forced vaccines but remember, when one door closes, another door opens. @adam walked away from corporate bullshit and continues to build great things. I'd like to think that you're here on NAS because you're independent and maybe you just need to know that you can walk away. Don't compromise yourself or your families for things you believe in.
"America does not have a press by any serious definition of the term. It has a government that, over the course of many decades, has turned the press into an appendage responsible for the manipulation of public opinion."
