Scientists Start Construction of World’s Largest Fusion Reactor

Today, engineers started construction of the world’s largest nuclear fusion project in southern France, The Guardian reports, with operations planned to begin in late 2025.

The project, called ITER, is an international collaborative effort between 35 countries with enormous ambitions: prove the feasibility of fusion energy with a gigantic magnetic device called a “tokamak,” as per the project’s official website.

“Enabling the exclusive use of clean energy will be a miracle for our planet,” ITER director-general Bernard Bigot said during today’s virtual celebration, as quoted by The Guardian.

Washington (AFP) – Since last week, the small, rural northwestern US state of Idaho has been racking up 500 new coronavirus cases a day — a sign of the exponential spread of the disease across the country.

With just 1.8 million inhabitants, Idaho — famous for its potatoes and meat processing plants — is seeing a virus resurgence as it also sweeps through the US South and West.

Meanwhile, New York and the northeastern United States, where the epidemic first hit hardest, have succeeded in tamping down infection rates.

Before June 15, Idaho was reporting fewer than 50 new cases a day. On Sunday, it reported 550, and more than 700 cases last Thursday.

In a recent interview, renowned Israeli Rabbi Daniel Asor warned of a globalist takeover happening as we speak. “If Hitler is the Third Reich, then the New World Order is the fourth Reich. It is Amalek’s last meeting with us before the Messiah’s arrival” he said.

Split societies, global chaos and World War Three: We could be in for the most tumultuous era in modern history

Split societies, global chaos and World War Three: We could be in for the most tumultuous era in modern history

As we cross into the second half of 2020, there is little hope left that our misfortunes will end when this annus horribilis goes out. We may be entering one of the most cataclysmic and fateful periods in the history of humankind.

There is the growing realization that humanity is in for an extremely rough ride that could last at least a decade.

This sense of uncertainty has been building up for years. It probably began with the global financial crisis of 2008-09. Yet, until 2020, there was hope that the world would somehow return to the right track and regain stability. Covid-19 ended this hope, devastating the global economy and exacerbating the pre-existing tensions between the incumbent hegemon (the United States) and a new super-power contender (China).

The state of angst has descended upon many. In most countries, including Russia, the plague continues to circulate, killing people with terrifying randomness. Even if we win the battle against the latest coronavirus, the mega-trends in global politics that point to more trouble and disorder are not going to dissipate and will likely only intensify. When trying to rationally break down my personal angst, as a political scientist, I perceive at least four such mega-trends.

Kentucky’s mask mandate goes into effect, but attorney general seeks ruling on legality

FRANKFORT — Despite an effort to derail it by state Attorney General Daniel Cameron, Gov. Andy Beshear’s order to mandate masks in Kentucky went into effect at 5 p.m. Friday. 

Beshear signed the executive order Thursday in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, which has been on the rise in the state.

Cameron filed a motion Friday afternoon seeking a ruling on whether Beshear’s order violated a judicial restraining order filed the previous day, which could put the mask mandate’s ultimate fate in doubt.

An Israeli agency reported Tuesday morning that 1,688 coronavirus infections were diagnosed a day earlier, the highest number seen in any 24-hour period.

The figures from the Coronavirus National Information and Knowledge Center, covering Monday until midnight, showed a total of 179 serious cases, and 364 total deaths.

The statistics appeared to contradict a Health Ministry update from 10:30 p.m. Monday night, which counted 365 dead and 183 serious cases.
