>Residents in a region hit by the deepest drone strikes within Russian territory since the start of the war in Ukraine have been warned that air defenses may not be able to protect them from future attacks.

>Since the start of its full-scale invasion, Russia has been hit with drone strikes reaching Moscow as well as ammunition depots and warehouses around the country linked to the war effort. Russian authorities blame Ukraine for the attacks, which Kyiv rarely claims responsibility for.

>In the latest incident, a drone attack on the Russian republic of Tatarstan on Tuesday reportedly hit industrial areas that produce Iranian-designed Shahed drones which Moscow uses extensively in its invasion.

>Responding to the strikes, the head of Tatarstan, Rustam Minnikhanov, appeared to suggest that the system that usually protects against airborne threats may not help them.

>"You should not expect missile defense to work—it solves other tasks," he said in comments reported by Radio Free Europe, without specifying what the other tasks are.

The Republican funded group could not find a candidate who was willing to go down in history as the individual who acted as a spoiler for Joe Biden and help reinstall Donald Trump as president and have his new fascist regime end US Democracy.

https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/4575052-no-labels-party-passes-2024-election-candidate/

The bipartisan group No Labels won’t put forward a third-party presidential ticket after failing to find a candidate.

“Today, No Labels is ending our effort to put forth a Unity ticket in the 2024 presidential election,” the group said in a release Thursday.

“No Labels has always said we would only offer our ballot line to a ticket if we could identify candidates with a credible path to winning the White House. No such candidates emerged, so the responsible course of action is for us to stand down.”

The Wall Street Journal first broke the news Thursday of No Labels’s plans.

One of this cycle’s biggest questions was whether No Labels would move forward with a third-party ticket in reaction to the unpopularity of President Biden and former President Trump.

Leaders floated former Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) as possible candidates before running through a list that grew narrower as more names fell off.

https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/charlie-kirk-trump-nebraska-republicans-scrambling-change-states/story?id=108852864

Nebraska lawmakers are embroiled in a last-ditch, Republican-led effort, spurred on by Donald Trump and conservative commentator Charlie Kirk, to eliminate the state's unique split-vote system for allocating three of its five Electoral College delegates just days before the end of the legislative session.

Such a change could have major implications for the outcome of the 2024 election.

The current system, which is also used by Maine, has been in place since 1991 and has faced multiple attempts to repeal it, coming just one vote short in 2016.

The latest proposal, originally introduced in 2023 and given new urgency with the endorsement of former President Trump and others, would reapportion the three electors awarded to the winner of each of the state's three congressional districts, instead awarding all five of them to the overall victor of the state, which leans Republican.

REVEALED: How junk food giant used the 'anti-diet' movement to sell sugar-laden cereals...and paid dietitians to promote unhealthy foods
An investigation uncovered anti-diet campaign
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/wellness-us/article-13268163/junk-food-brands-dietitians-promote-sugar-cereals.html

Junk food giants have been 'co-opting' body positive social media trends to try and sell Americans more calorific foods, a new investigation has uncovered.

The manufacturer behind Coca Puffs, Golden Grahams and Annie's Mac and Cheese is accused of cynical advertising tactics - such as paying dietitians to promote sugar-laden products on social media using body positive hashtags.

The sponsored content is targeted at the 'anti-diet' community - people who believe labelling any foods as 'bad' or 'unhealthy' can lead to mental health problems such as disordered eating.

Many of the junk food-funded posts use the hashtag #derailtheshame on social media - a marketing ploy invented by the firm, called General Mills, which infers people shouldn't be ashamed of eating sugary food.

.One post was shared in November 2023 by dietitian Cara Harbstreet, who has 38,000 followers on Tiktok.

In the clip, she can be seen preparing a bowl of cereal and eating it, while the captions read: 'As a registered dietitian I will always advocate for fearlessly nourishing meals including cereal because everyone deserves to enjoy food without judgement'. She states the video is a sponsored partnership with General Mills.

Disney CEO Bob Iger on Wednesday fended off an aggressive challenge by activist investors seeking to take the company in a new direction, averting what would have been a stunning embarrassment for one of Hollywood’s leading executives.

The entertainment conglomerate’s corporate leadership was facing a bold attack from billionaire activist investor Nelson Peltz, who loudly pushed the company to come up with a concrete succession plan and derided efforts to make more diverse movies and shows.

But that crusade fell short, as Disney shareholders approved board members backed by the current company leadership, denying seats for Peltz and his ally Jay Rasulo, a former chief financial officer at Disney.

Amanda Nguyen: Civil Rights Astronaut, 2022 TIME Woman of the Year, and 2019 Nobel Peace Prize Nominee

In 2013, after interning for NASA during her last semester at Harvard University, Amanda Nguyen was raped.

Although she took immediate action against the perpetrator by reporting the gruesome crime, lawyers warned Nguyen that it could take multiple years for her case to get taken to court.

Nguyen said: "There's a very real economic cost to violence against women. There are incredible sacrifices that survivors have to make if they want to pursue justice. I don't think that is right."

Speaking of the "broken" criminal justice system for rape survivors in the US, Nguyen said that she refused to choose between seeking justice or continuing her career as a trainee astronaut.

"No one should have to choose between justice and their career," she added.

Instead, Nguyen prioritised speaking out against the US legal system and addressing the preservation of critical evidence from rape cases.

In a defeat for /pol/, 'their guy' was recalled in a massive landslide of 20 percent of the vote in a deep conservative district.

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/oklahoma-judd-blevins-enid-city-council-recall-election-rcna146029

ENID, Okla. — Voters in Enid decided by a nearly 20-point margin Tuesday to remove a City Council member over his ties to white nationalist groups.

Judd Blevins lost his seat on Enid’s six-member City Council by 268 votes, according to unofficial results from the Oklahoma State Election Board. Nearly 1,400 people turned out, about a quarter of Ward 1’s registered voters and hundreds more than voted when Blevins was first elected last year.

Blevins will be replaced by Cheryl Patterson, a former teacher and longtime Republican who campaigned on a return to “normalcy” for this small city nearly 100 miles north of Oklahoma City, which was divided by the furor over Blevins.

“We won,” said Connie Vickers, a Democrat in conservative Enid, who was among the first to publicly confront Blevins over his white nationalist ties. “Blevins lost. Hate lost.”

Blevins faced the recall vote after local activists learned that he had marched alongside neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017 and led an Oklahoma chapter of the white nationalist group Identity Evropa.

Blevins has denied that he has ever been a white supremacist, but at a candidate forum last week he defended marching in Charlottesville and said his activism was motivated by “the same issues that got Donald Trump elected in 2016.”

Dodik is literally Putin!!!11! But seriously, what a nutjob both of them are

https://www.rferl.org/a/republika-srpska-foreign-agents-law-dodik/32890514.html

Republika Srpska is going ahead with its controversial proposed law on "foreign agents," which aims to curb the work of nonprofit organizations financed from abroad in the Serbian entity of Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The proposed law was published on April 3 on the website of Republika Srpska's Justice Ministry, despite opposition from the public, NGOs, and international organizations.

The law would define "agents of foreign influence" as nonprofit organizations assisted by foreign entities that are engaged in political activities, try to influence public opinion, and are undermining the integrity and constitution of Republika Srpska.

The proposed law would oblige organizations to report to the Justice Ministry within 15 days the receipt of financial or any other kind of support. It also stipulates possible bans if an organization violates "the integrity of [Republika Srpska]."
>>
The law was announced in 2022 by Milorad Dodik, the pro-Russian president of Republika Srpska, who is also the leader of the largest party in parliament, the Alliance of Independent Social Democrats (SNSD). Dodik is under sanctions imposed by the United States and Britain for his efforts to undermine the Dayton agreement.

The draft version of the "foreign agents" law was referred to the National Assembly of Republika Srpska on March 28 just days before the legal deadline. Officials said they do not know when a debate on the proposal will be discussed by the parliament.

Legislators who support the proposal claim that the U.S. Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) was a model for the law, but an RFE/RL investigation showed that it has much more in common with the Russian law on "foreign agents" implemented in 2012.

The proposal has remained unchanged from its draft version in that it proposes special oversight for NGOs financed from abroad, prohibits political activities, and requires additional registration and financial reports.

The Office of the High Representative (OHR) to Bosnia has asked for the withdrawal of the draft law from the parliamentary schedule, stating that its aim is to scare organizations of civil society into submission.

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission will vote to reinstate landmark net neutrality rules and assume new regulatory oversight of broadband internet that was rescinded under former President Donald Trump, the agency's chair said.
The FCC told advocates on Tuesday of the plan to vote on the final rule at its April 25 meeting.
The commission voted 3-2 in October on the proposal to reinstate open internet rules adopted in 2015 and re-establish the commission's authority over broadband internet.
Net neutrality refers to the principle that internet service providers should enable access to all content and applications regardless of the source, and without favoring or blocking particular products or websites.
FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel confirmed the planned commission vote in an interview with Reuters.
"The pandemic made clear that broadband is an essential service, that every one of us - no matter who we are or where we live - needs it to have a fair shot at success in the digital age," she said.
An essential service requires oversight and in this case we are just putting back in place the rules that have already been court-approved that ensures that broadband access is fast, open and fair."
Reinstating the rules has been a priority for President Joe Biden, who signed a July 2021 executive order encouraging the FCC to reinstate net neutrality rules adopted under Democratic President Barack Obama.
Democrats were stymied for nearly three years because they did not take majority control of the five-member FCC until October.

>The original story helped push the false narrative that the Biden White House had banned religious designs at its Easter festivities.

https://www.thedailybeast.com/daily-caller-retracts-article-that-launched-phony-easter-outrage-cycle

The Daily Caller has retracted and removed an article falsely accusing the Biden administration of banning religious designs on Easter eggs submitted to a White House art contest.

The retraction comes days after the right-wing media ecosystem ran wild with the story (alongside misleading claims about Transgender Day of Visibility), claiming that it was further proof of President Joe Biden’s supposed war on Christianity.

Reacting to a flyer sent out for the “Celebrating National Guard Families” contest at this year’s White House Easter Egg Roll, The Daily Caller reported that the competition “explicitly stipulated that egg designs not feature any ‘religious symbols’ on the Christian holiday.” The Caller’s article helped launch a days-long outrage cycle throughout conservative media, culminating in obsessive coverage across Fox News.

Following that backlash, however, the American Egg Board, which helps coordinate the annual White House event, explained that the “guideline language referenced in recent news reports has consistently applied to the board since its founding” in 1978. Therefore, the restrictions had been in place since the Carter administration, including Donald Trump’s term in office.

“While the Caller did not explicitly state at any point that the rule was new, this additional context rendered the main thrust of the article misleading to readers, who could reasonably have come to the conclusion that the rule was new,” the Daily Caller explained in its retraction.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/botswana-germany-20000-elephants-trophy-hunting-row/
Johannesburg — Botswana's President Mokgweetsi Masisi has threatened to send 20,000 African elephants to "roam free" in Germany in a public dispute between the nations over hunting and conservation, according to the German newspaper Bild.

Masisi's comments came in response to Germany's government saying earlier this year that it wants to restrict hunters from importing hunting trophies from Africa into Germany.

Botswana is home to roughly one-third of the world's elephant population. Germany is among the largest importers of hunting trophies in Europe, with German hunters representing a significant amount of the income used to fund sustainable conservation in many African nations.

Masisi said elephant numbers in his country had exploded as a result of conservation efforts to protect the animals, and that trophy hunting was one of the tools his country used to bring in much needed revenue while keeping elephant populations in check.

Germans should "live together with the animals, in the way you are trying to tell us to," Masisi told Bild, adding: "This is not a joke."

Overpopulation of elephants increases conflict with local human populations, as the animals can destroy crops and even been trample and kill people, Masisi said this week.

Local communities across southern Africa have often found themselves in conflict with elephants, which are seen as pests.

Masisi was quoted by Bild as saying that Germany's government ministers didn't have "elephants in their backyard," but noting that he was "willing to change that."

Illinois legislation would require third background check, mandatory training for gun purchases
By Catrina Petersen
The Center Square

Despite Illinois having nearly four million background checks done on gun owning residents in 2023, Illinoisans who want to buy a firearm would have to undergo state-approved training and three background checks if a proposed bill makes it across the finish line.

A Second Amendment advocate says this latest gun-restriction bill is a tactic to keep firearms out of law-abiding citizens’ hands.

House Bill 3239, sponsored by state Rep. Maura Hirschauer, D-Batavia, would obligate Illinoisans who want to buy a firearm to go through eight hours of training and other requirements. The bill is in the House Judiciary Criminal Committee, which is scheduled to meet in Springfield this week. Her office said she will not be calling the bill this week.

William Kirk, president of Washington Gun Law, said the measure woud require residents who want to purchase a firearm to go to their local law enforcement department and go through a background check with fingerprinting.

Odd then, that the city of Chicago has more murders then the _entire state_ of Indiana, despite Indiana's supposedly "lax" gun laws?

Do you have an explanation for this strange discrepancy, because the Dems have told us that guns = crime and thus Indiana's murder rate ought to be sky high?

South Korea's "artificial sun" has set a new fusion record after superheating a plasma loop to 180 million degrees Fahrenheit (100 million degrees Celsius) for 48 seconds, scientists have announced

To extend their plasma's burning time from the previous record-breaking run, the scientists tweaked aspects of their reactor's design, including replacing carbon with tungsten to improve the efficiency of the tokamak’s "divertors," which extract heat and ash from the reactor.

Brainlet, you sound like a retard
Are you just guessing? It doesn't say that In the article, and I'm sure they would have mentioned it had that been the case.

You realize fusion isn't guaranteed energy gain, right? It's like any other physical process and efficiencies are a real thing

The last I heard was the only process that generates energy gain is using lasers and the superheated plasma/magnetic process like this could sustain fusion for longer but was extremely in inefficient use of energy and often resulted in large net energy loss

Oh wait, you are a retard, you retard, read this from the article:
>Soviet scientist Natan Yavlinsky designed the first tokamak in 1958, but no one has ever managed to create a reactor that is able to put out more energy than it takes in.
That's technically wrong, a laser style one generated a net gain a couple years ago, but these tokamaks are very inefficient
>>
>>1284536
Ignition at the NIF has been defined in a few different ways over the last couple of years. The first claimed ignition shot was dubbed "scientific ignition", and defined as more energy released in the form of fusion neutrons than laser energy coupled to the DT (deuterium-tritium)fuel capsule. They have since repeated this and improved it such that they have claimed another type of ignition, that in which the energy released in the form of fusion neutrons is greater than the total laser energy.
Neither of these metrics of energy input are the total electrical energy input to produce the laser pulse.
Currently, they are using ~400 MJ of energy to put ~2 MJ of energy into the target, and yielding ~4 MJ from the fusion.
Of course, since we're talking about the NIF here, there are energy losses from the laser interacting with the hohlraum to produce the x-ray bath that compresses the DT target, and there are people who think that using the lasers to directly compress the target is a more feasible strategy for an ICF power plant. Direct drive has some upsides and some downsides, like any decision you make.
Either way, it's exciting to see both ICF and MCF making significant strides in terms of research into their basic challenges. Controlling plasma instabilities is an absolute bitch. Hopefully people crack the egg on room temperature superconductors (real ones, not those shilled by the fraud Ranga Dias or those retarded South Koreans with their LK99). That would be a real game changer.

New book details Steve Bannon’s ‘Maga movement’ plan to rule for 100 years
Isaac Arnsdorf’s Finish What We Started shows how the strategist wanted to create a dominant coalition to take US political power

Steve Bannon, Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign chair and White House strategist, believed before the 2020 election and the January 6 attack on Congress that a “Maga movement” of Trump supporters “could rule for a hundred years”.

“Outside the uniparty,” the Washington Post reporter Isaac Arnsdorf writes in a new book, referring to Bannon’s term for the political establishment, “as Bannon saw it, there was the progressive wing of the Democratic party, which he considered a relatively small slice of the electorate. And the rest, the vast majority of the country, was Maga.

“Bannon believed the Maga movement, if it could break out of being suppressed and marginalised by the establishment, represented a dominant coalition that could rule for a hundred years.”

Arnsdorf’s book, Finish What We Started: The Maga Movement’s Ground War to End Democracy, will be published next week. The Post published an excerpt on Thursday.

100 years? he's a diluted hitler?

And all he had to do to gain power was tell the politicians to stop treating the working class like idiots that can't tell their heads from their asses.
But I'm sure if you scream, "YOU'RE VOTING AGAINST YOUR BEST INTERESTS YOU FUCKING RETARDS" will finally work if you do it another 5,000,000 times.

Hate influencer Chaya Raichik – who goes by “Libs of TikTok” online – is trying to take her show on the road, and it doesn’t appear to be going well.

Raichik gave a speech yesterday at the Indiana Memorial Union at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, alongside Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN).

During her speech, she ranted about “pornographic” books in schools and moved on to her hatred of everything “woke.”

“It’s been in schools, it’s on college campuses, it- it’s in the workforce, it is in the streets, it’s when you go to the store,” she complained. “I mean, like, you can’t do anything in peace without this wokeness being shoved down your throat wherever you go!”

Some students started laughing.

“Um, do you have a question? Is something funny?” she asked, apparently not expecting people to find her over-the-top concerns funny.

“How do you define wokeness?” someone in the back asked.

Raichik tried to respond: “Wokeness is the destruction of normalicy [sic] and… And… Um… Uh…” More students started laughing.

"define woke" has been a retarded gotcha for so long, Raichik has no excuse for not having a quick answer loaded and ready for such a question.
