CDC Says A New COVID Variant May Be Needed To Effectively Bury Afghanistan News
[Babylon Bee] Officials at the CDC said today that the surprising virulence and persistence of Afghanistan news may require a whole new COVID variant to distract the country from it.

"We’re concerned that the only way to cure the administration of all this bad publicity may be a prolonged, shrieking freak-out over a new COVID variant," said Dr. Ed Whittle, Director of the CDC’s Department for the Cultivation of Existential Dread. "So, we’re working night and day to come up with something really scary that would make the collapse of Afghanistan seem like a Martha’s Vineyard birthday party."

Some of the possible variants that officials are considering include the Gamma variant, which gives victims an extreme desire to turn green and smash; the Bro variant, which causes victims to break out in armband tattoos; and the Kung Fu Movie variant, in which victims’ can no longer make their words match up with their mouth movements.

Dr. Whittle said, "Right now the leading candidate is the Germany variant, because lots of really scary things come from Germany, like Nazis and Rammstein. And if we’re going to wipe the Afghanistan debacle off the front pages, we’re definitely going to need something as scary as heavy metal Germans."

Where his means of escape

When a noisome miasma he smelt.

Of course he'd probably use something a bit more technical today. RGB? Coban instead of masking tape? Balloon vendor of the apocalypse, like (always lookin' out for the neighbors, ol' Ogg!).

The American elite will be female
h/t Hot Air
[The Week] - Stereotypes tend to lag reality. Wall Street is personified by Gordon Gekko, years after his instinctive investing and sartorial flamboyance went out of style. We imagine the foreign policy community is reserved for lock-jawed patricians, a type that's hardly been seen for decades. Judging by movies and TV series like the The Chair, meanwhile, college is a different kind of boy's club, one dominated by strutting jocks among the students and tweedy graybeards on the faculty.

But it's been a long time since that was true. Despite its anachronistic reputation, the college population is increasingly female. Surveying recent data, The Wall Street Journal finds that women made up nearly 60 percent of enrollment in the 2020-21 academic year. Women are not just more likely to attend college, but also more likely to graduate. According to the report, about two thirds of women who enroll at a four-year institution graduate within six years, compared with 59 percent of men.

...Women's success in admissions isn't only a dilemma for colleges trying to balance their books. Because elite institutions hire almost exclusively college graduates, campuses are the point of departure for female dominance of publishing, the culture industry, and areas of the corporate world — particularly the massive human resources industry.

Skeptics might observe that the upper tiers of these fields remain dominated by men. That's right, but largely a generation effect. Today's non-profit trustees, tenured professors, and executive editors began their careers decades ago, when college student bodies were more equally divided (and in some cases, exclusively male). It would be surprising if the gender ratio in upper management remained the same in another 20 years.

...Even though it stands in tension with the principle that the most competent deserve their rewards, I think conservatives have the better argument. The migration of "woke" jargon from campuses to human resources divisions is annoying but not decisive. It's more important that declining educational attainment for men means lower wages and declining marriage rates, which promote family instability. In the long run, un- or under-employed men and unstable households are correlated with violent crime. It's not a straight causal arrow, but the dwindling share of men in higher education and the jobs it supplies could be downright dangerous.
Not to mention that while there are women who can do traditional male jobs - they are just as common as men capable of doing traditional female jobs.

#15  declining educational attainment for men means lower wages

This has been true in the past; but I wonder if things are changing with the oversupply of worthless degrees. The largely female BAs working as baristas at Starbucks are your first clue. The largely male welders making $90K per year without any student debt are your second clue. You may not be interested in supply and demand, but supply and demand is interested in you.

Who is provoking the Taiwan Strait War?
Direct Translation via Google Translate. Edited.
by Vladimir Pavlenko

[Regnum] Tensions continue to escalate between the two shores of the Taiwan Strait. Recently, Taiwan accused China of nineteen PLA Air Force planes flying over its islands and territorial waters; they allegedly "violated" the island's airspace. Taipei said it was the "largest" violation in the past three months (the period since June, when the Taiwanese authorities resented the "invasion" of 28 aircraft).

Trump cut off chinese access to high end chip making equipment so they will soon be left with exporting plastic crap.
