The combined wealth of the world's 10 richest men rose by $540bn (400bn) during the pandemic

The combined wealth of the world's 10 richest men rose by $540bn (£400bn) during the pandemic, according to Oxfam.

The charity claims this amount would be enough to prevent the world from falling into poverty because of the virus, and pay for vaccines for all.

The organisation is urging governments to consider taxes on the super-rich.

Oxfam's report comes as global leaders gather virtually for the World Economic Forum's "Davos Dialogue" meeting.

BBC: New UK variant 'may be more deadly'

Early evidence suggests the variant of coronavirus that emerged in the UK may be more deadly, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said.

The data has been assessed by scientists on the New and Emerging Respiratory Virus Threats Advisory Group, which has briefed government.

The new variant appears to be around 30% more deadly.

For example, with 1,000 60-year-olds infected with the old variant, 10 of them might be expected to die. But this rises to around 13 with the new variant.

I don't think Rand Paul got that unity memo yet

Because of toxic asshole rascists like Paul unity will never work, not until the repuke party vomits its racists out.

So tRump had all the trees removed around the Rose Garden just for a campaign photo shoot

so the White House would be clearer in the background per MSNBC.

I love her style & a little payback for tRump telling her to get a life, have fun, go to a movie

Ontario premier pleads with incoming Biden administration for COVID-19 vaccine help

Ontario Premier Doug Ford has issued a plea to U.S. President-elect Joe Biden for help in obtaining more Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines amid a shortage of doses in Canada.

Ford made the comments during a press conference on Tuesday after the federal government announced that Canada will be receiving zero Pfizer doses next week.

“My American friends, help us out. We need help once again, as we did with the (personal protective equipment). You have a new president, no more excuses,” Ford said.

My thoughts on the Capital police, Park Police and any supporting police force that tried & failed

to control the tRump terrorist mob on 1/6.

As a party we have been against militarizing police forces & for good reasons, the Capital Police & support agencies should not have been put in a position to stop hundreds of angry RW terrorists anyway, they are not equipped for that nor should they be. The Feds had plenty of time and warning to put NG in place to negate this terrorist attack but it was blocked by the terrorist, criminal tRump administration. I do not want a police force equipped & trained to deal with a mass attack, that job should only be done by the military, the military that we spend 700 billion dollars a year on to defend us. Using the National Guard of coarse, not the way tRump's bible thumping skit was handled.

Book published nearly 25 years ago predicted America would hit a great crisis climaxing around 2020

— and that up next is a millennial vs. boomer standoff that will usher in a new world order

America sees a "turning" every 20 years as one generation displaces another, and the dynamic between one particular generation entering "elderhood" and another entering "young adulthood" creates a crisis every 80 years, according to a theory prophesied in Neil Howe and William Strauss' "The Fourth Turning."

The authors wrote that the next crisis-era would start around 2005 and "climax" around 2020, and would involve millennials and boomers fighting over the shape of the world to come.

There are some similarities between recent events and the book's predictions: The 2008 financial crisis can be seen as the catalyst they mentioned, and in 2020 and early 2021, unrest has shaken the economy, politics, and the economy.

It's unclear whether the fourth turning as Howe and Strauss characterized it really is happening right now — but the parallels are certainly eye-catching.

Not a wackadoodle conspiracy but draws comparisons to the Fourth turning theory and and events of the last few years & beyond.

Great Idea to mess with tRump humping neighbors
