Cutting off one's nose to spite their face. Or how coal outperforms wind.

Sat under an anticyclone, Britain’s contribution from wind power since yesterday has been less than 1GW, around 2% of the total electricity generated. This situation is expected to last a few more days yet.

As ever, it is fossil fuels which have come to the rescue, with gas currently supplying 60% of the nation’s power, and even coal, which has been fired up to give 7%.

Indeed, in the last day we have had more power from coal than from wind.

Thirteen years ago, the Labour government promised us that wind power could be powering every home by this year. (I wonder where I have heard that lately!)

Well, that didn't take long.

Participant in India’s AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine trial sues after experiencing ‘severe adverse effect’

An Indian man who helped test a coronavirus jab based on AstraZeneca’s candidate vaccine has filed suit, claiming that he suffered extreme side effects during his participation in the trial.
The plaintiff, identified in media reports as a 40-year-old man from Chennai, is suing the Pune-based Serum Institute of India (SII) for Rs 5 crore ($676,000 USD). The individual alleges that he suffered serious neurological damage after taking part in the phase three trial of Covishield, the SII’s version of the Covid-19 jab being developed by AstraZeneca and the University of Oxford. The man was purportedly told that the vaccine was safe and chose to participate in the program in “the spirit of public service.”


No fine print to read? Something smells fishy here.

If Franklyn Dominguez, a member of the Latin Kings, was a dog, he would have been put down by now.

NEW YORK — A career criminal gangbanger with a “resume” of 70 prior arrests slashed a correction officer in the arm and stabbed a captain in the knee at the Manhattan Detention Complex on Thanksgiving Day, union officials said Friday.

The inmate, identified by a Correction Officers’ Benevolent Association spokesman as Franklyn Dominguez, a member of the Latin Kings, was already fighting with two Correction captains — and waving a sharpened piece of metal — when the officer got out of an elevator at the Lower Manhattan facility and walked right into the melee in the vestibule, New York Post reported.

Little Himmler's Cuomo's Tattle Tale Hot Line was a bust. Local Law Enforcement said, "we are too damn busy doing other stuff."

Hardly any New Yorkers called in to rat out their neighbors over Thanksgiving, reports Tony Aiello of CBS New York.

“I heard back from 38 of the state’s 58 Sheriff’s,” New York Sheriff’s Executive Director Peter Kehoe told Aiello. “They reported that six calls came in through the state’s [PAUSE] hotline regarding gatherings of more than 10 people. Unknown if the State Police responded to any of them. Sheriffs did not, no resources available.”

We probably all have lost a loved one due to cancer. Wouldn't it be wonderful if there was a way to detect cancer before it was too late?

NHS to trial blood test to detect more than 50 forms of cancer - Researchers hopes Galleri trial will be a ‘gamechanger’ for early diagnosis and save many lives


If successful the blood test, known as Galleri, could revolutionise early diagnosis of cancer and save many lives by identifying symptoms quickly enough for prompt treatment to make the difference between life and death.

The blood test will be offered to 165,000 people in England from mid-2021, the vast majority of whom have no signs of the disease.

NHS England hopes the test may prove particularly useful at detecting early signs of cancers that are hard to spot and so have worse survival rates, such as ovarian and pancreatic cancer.

This certainly looks like a fun activity.

Audi Formula E driver Lucas di Grassi captured his night out at a karting track just outside São Paulo, Brazil, where every karter on track had a paintball gun. He described it as "Mario Kart in real life," and it looks like a blast.

"If you're driving your go kart and become upset because somebody got past, you can just let them have it and fire a hail of paintballs," di Grassi explains.

Sunday = Food Thread and while we are discussing fast food Just about everything you wanted to know about McDonald's McRib sammich.

The McDonald's McRib, a sandwich that has 70 ingredients but no rib meat, was first introduced in 1981 and wasn't much of a hit. But in the years since, it has established a cult following, and when it returns to the menu sporadically, those fans come out of the woodwork. That scheme is both accidental and deliberate, and understanding it requires a lesson in McDonald's business model, supply-chain logistics, and marketing.
