Miami security firm faces questions in Haiti assassination
[FoxNews] Three Colombians were killed and 18 are behind bars in Haiti

Antonio "Tony" Intriago, owner of Miami-based CTU Security, seems to have jumped at the chance, hiring more than 20 former soldiers from Colombia for the mission.
President Jovenel Moïse was assassinated in his home. First Lady Martine Moïse was also shot and has been hospitalized

For the owner of a small private security company with a history of avoiding paying debts and declaring bankruptcy, it looked like a good opportunity: Find people with military experience for a job in Haiti.

Where I stopped reading.

Moise very likely pulled his Glock. At this point the planned political detention and removal from office turned into a live fire exercise. He was shot 16 times.

BLM blames 'cruel and inhumane' US embargoes for Cuban unrest and praises the communist regime for granting 'Black revolutionaries' asylum
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news]
  • Black Lives Matter accused US of causing the instability that sparked protestsActivists also praised the regime for showing 'solidarity with oppressed peoples'

  • Demonstrations over food shortages and rising prices have rocked the island

  • The group also praised Cuba for harboring Assata Shakur, a convicted cop killer and former Black Panther who has been hiding on the island for nearly 40 years

Shakur, a former member of the Black Liberation Army, was convicted of being an accomplice to the murder of State Trooper Werner Foerster in 1973.

At the time, she was also wanted for several felonies, including bank robber counts in New York and was known for her membership of the Black Panthers.

Shakur was with two other people when they were pulled over on the New Jersey Turnpike. The three opened fire on the troopers.

Passenger James Coston was shot and killed by Officer James Harper. The shootout continued until Shakur, having shot and killed Foerster execution-style fled the scene with the surviving passenger, who remains in prison.

Both were apprehended by police shortly thereafter.

Shakur denied having shot anyone, but was sentenced to life in prison. She escaped from the Clinton Correctional Facility for Women in 1979. She resurfaced in Cuba where she was granted asylum by Fidel Castro and where she has lived ever since.

Considered an armed and dangerous domestic terrorist, she is still wanted by the FBI and there is a $2million reward for her capture.

The godmother and aunt of the late rapper Tupac Shakur also became the first woman on the FBI's list of top 10 most wanted terrorists.

NYC sex workers rampant in open-air prostitution market amid lax enforcement
Link Not Safe For Work.

Nice going, Commies. It's the worst of the 1970's all over again. Can Disco be far off?

[NY Post] It’s well after midnight on a Saturday morning, but traffic is as thick as rush hour along a four-block industrial stretch in East New York, Brooklyn.

Scantily clad women walk mid-block, their heels click-clacking on the asphalt as they move from car to car, leaning into driver’s side windows to entice the next man in line.

One woman on the sidelines, appearing disinterested, sips from a can of Red Bull through a straw.

It’s a rare break in a cycle that repeats for hours on end: Hopping into strangers’ cars, riding out of view for 10, sometimes 30 minutes, then getting dropped back off to do it all again.

This open-air sex market has operated in plain sight on Friday and Saturday nights for months. The women, many likely trafficking victims, stop drivers who line up for their services. Their pimps pull the strings from the shadows.

MLB All-Star Game - 2nd Worst Ratings In History
Get woke, go broke.
[The Hill, via Ace] - Major League Baseball's All-Star Game was once "appointment viewing" in this country. In 1980, more than 36 million people tuned in. In 2015, in the age of interleague play, a still-respectable 11 million watched the American and National Leagues battle it out.

But for Tuesday night's game, the Nielsen numbers were profoundly horrible: 8.24 million people tuned in, making it the second-least-watched All-Star Game in history. This number is stunning when considering what was billed as one of the most compelling lineups in years, one that included Los Angeles Angels' Japanese sensation Shohei Ohtani, who was the first player in All-Star Game history to be a starting pitcher and bat lead-off, and the game's first two-way starter dating back to 1933.
So even with a hotshot phenom player, they had trouble drawing flies. I barely watched it myself; when you'd rather watch reruns of Law and Order, that should tell the suits something. However, the current MLB commissioner, Rob Manfred, seem as woke and inept as his NBA counterpart, Adam 'Jug Ears' Silver, whose professional background is a lawyer. And this is coming from someone who's disliked baseball for a while but has been watching more Red Sox games in recent months, probably because a) nothing else is on and / or b) they don't suck like they did last year.

Caucasus/Russia/Central Asia
2 new Project 02510 BK-16-class amphibious assault boats enters service with the Baltic Fleet
[TASS] Two BK-16-class amphibious assault boats built at the Rybinsk Shipyard entered the Russian Baltic Fleet’s service, its press office reported on Thursday.

"An official ceremony was held in the town of Primorsk in the Baltiysk Urban District of the Kaliningrad Region, where the boats will be based, to raise the Russian naval flag aboard these vessels," the press office said in a statement.

The amphibious assault boats were built at the Rybinsk Shipyard specially for the Baltic Fleet and delivered under the program of the Fleet’s planned rearmament, it added.

During the official ceremony that was attended by representatives of the Baltic Fleet’s command and personnel, Deputy Chief of the Russian Navy Main Staff Rear Admiral Oleg Alishev (PDF) handed the St. Andrew’s Russian naval flags to the boats’ commanders. The flags were hoisted aboard the new combat vessels to the accompaniment of the national anthem. By order of the Russian Navy chief, the new amphibious assault boats were included in the Baltic Fleet’s combat inventory.

This event was preceded by the successful shipbuilders’ sea and state trials of the new combat boats, in which all their systems and armaments were checked at sea, the press office said.

About the boats
The Project 02510 high-speed amphibious assault boats are designated to sealift and land an assault force, provide fire support for the landing party, participate in anti-saboteur measures, fight piracy and terrorism, carry light cargoes and take part in rescue operations. The boat can accommodate three crewmembers and up to 18 personnel.

The Project 02510 BK16 amphibious assault boat is 16 meters long and four meters wide, with a displacement of 22 tonnes and a speed of 40 knots (almost 75 km/h). Additionally, it has an operating range of up to 400 nautical miles.

The boat is outfitted with a remote-controlled weapon station built by the Kalashnikov Group firearms manufacturer and is capable of detecting and striking targets during the day and at night under any weather conditions. The combat module features armor protection against B-32 armor-piercing 7.62 mm bullets and a gyro-stabilized platform that boosts the accuracy of fire in a ship’s roll.

Details of the An-26 plane crash in Kamchatka
Direct Translation of the article via Google Translate. Edited.
[REGNUM] The first data on the decoding of the An-26 flight recorder appeared, which crashed on July 6 near Palana with 22 passengers and six crew members on board.

According to Ren TV, the aircraft, when approaching, dropped to 800 meters and deviated from the airfield to the north by 5 km. The dispatcher indicated to the crew that the aircraft was flying 30 degrees to the left, at a dangerous altitude and at high speed.

"Experts believe that the crew was completely disoriented, not accepting information from the dispatcher about the bearing," the newspaper writes.

After the plane descended to 600 meters, at about 14:48 local time, the pilot was put on a course of 140 degrees. The movement continued along this course until the collision. When descending to an altitude of 600 meters, the crew stopped communicating with the dispatcher.

The preliminary cause of the An-26 plane crash near Palana was crew error.

As reported by IA REGNUM , relatives will be able to pick up the bodies of those killed in the An-26 plane crash near Palana only after a genetic examination and identification of personalities.

At the same time, the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation applied to the genetic laboratory of the Russian Center for Forensic Medicine in Moscow with a request to conduct an examination as soon as possible.

Village in Khaborovsk flooded after heavy rains
Direct Translation via Google Translate. Edited.
[REGNUM] Heavy downpours in the north of the Khabarovsk Territory led to flooding in the Verkhnebureinsky District, Acting Governor Mikhail Degtyarev said on July 15 in his Telegram channel.

"Now I am assembling a commission on emergency situations. In the Verkhnebureinsky region on July 14-15, 60-130 mm of precipitation fell (80% of the monthly norm).

On the Bureya river near the village of Ust-Niman, on July 17, a water level of 1000-1050 cm is expected (with a level of adverse events of 850 cm). The floodplain is flooded to a depth of 3 meters. Roads, crops, the village of Ust-Urgal were under water," the head of the region wrote.

As reported by IA REGNUM , a powerful cyclone is approaching the Khabarovsk Territory, after the heat, heavy rains and thunderstorms.

[UPI] As many as two of every five Americans who've died from COVID-19 were suffering from diabetes, making the chronic disease one of the highest-risk conditions during the pandemic, an expert says.

About 40% of deaths from COVID-19 in the United States were among diabetics, a "really quite sobering" statistic that should prompt people with the ailment to get vaccinated, said Dr. Robert Gabbay, chief scientific and medical officer for the American Diabetes Association.

"I can't say this strongly enough -- if you have diabetes, get vaccinated. Speak to your health care provider, discuss your concerns," Gabbay said during a HealthDay Now interview.

"With the risk of hospitalization and death related to COVID-19 six to 12 times higher in people with diabetes, it's time to get vaccinated," Gabbay said.
Does the vaccine cure diabetes?

#2  I figured that out months ago, using CDC data. No distinction between Type 1 and Type 2, but obesity was right up there with diabetes, which is more closely associated with Type 2 (poor diet).

#3  From that CDC cormobidity data, as of 09/05/20 -
1 All other conditions and causes (Includes more than 23 codes)
2 Influenza and pneumonia
3 Respiratory failure
4 Hypertensive diseases
5 Diabetes
6 Adult respiratory distress syndrome
7 Cardiac arrest
8 Vascular and unspecified dementia
9 Ischemic heart disease
10 Sepsis

At that time, Diabetes was a cormorbidity in just 5.78% of the deaths, so 2/5 is a big jump.
