China now has the world's deepest laboratory up and running. It is 2,400 metres (7,874 feet) under the surface in southwest China. It is about the size of 120 Olympic-sized swimming pools. Scientists will be working there to search for dark matter, which does not absorb or reflect light, making it hard to find.

🇬🇧 A hearing on gender ideology in the UK was shockingly common sense on Wednesday. MP Kemi Badenoch says that the UK says that "the government is taking an evidence-based and principled approach on these issues, and taking our time to get this right."
🇸🇨 The Seychelles has declared a state of emergency over massive flooding and heavy rains that caused an explosion at an explosives depot.
🇻🇪 Venezuela will mobilize troops to fight over Guyana. The U.S. says it supports sovereighnty for Guyana.
🗳️ Nevada has indicted six people they claim were "fake electors" who falsely declared that former President Trump won the state in the 2020 election.
The Senate voted down a spending package that would continue to provide military aid to Ukraine. Republicans tanked the bill but they had allies in Democrats Bernie Sanders and Chuck Schumer.
Republicans have insisted that they will not approve aid to Ukraine without funds to increase security at the southern border. The Biden administration ramped up its fear tactics with warnings that not providing aid to Ukraine would draw U.S. troops into the conflict because it would allow Russia to continue to take more land and eventually invade Europe.
Once again: This is false and clear fear mongering. Putin did not single handedly decide to take over Ukraine. Russian Parliament voted on the Special Military Operation in March of 2022 at the request of from the leaders of the Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics (DPR and LPR) for assistance in repelling Ukrainian aggression since 2014. Neither Russia nor Putin have ever expressed interest in gaining territory beyond that region.
Bernie Sanders' no vote was because he does not believe that the U.S. should give the Netanyahu government money "with no strings attached."
So why do Democrats oppose the money for the southern border? They don’t really say why but the President conceded that he will do “significantly more” on border security if that is what it takes to pass the military aid bill.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has been warmly received in Arab nations this week and the West is watching but pretending not to watch.
While on an official visit to the United Arab Emirates today, he was greeted with a tricolor rainbow in the sky of colors from the Russian flag drawn by Emirate military jets. President Putin also met with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman on this trip. It is interesting to compare this to German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier's trip to Qatar last week where he was left standing on the tarmac waiting for a reception for half an hour.
The Kremlin says that Putin's trip is to discuss “the prospects for further development of multifaceted Russia-UAE cooperation, as well as pressing international issues with the emphasis on the situation in the Middle East.”
The Russian embassy points out that this is not the greeting of an “isolated” world leader.
The West continues to call him a dictator even though Russian Parliament has set a date for the next presidential election. It is Ukrainian President Zelensky who is holding to power, refusing to hold elections.
The next Presidential election in Russia will be March 17, 2024. The head head of the Central Election Commission said that “decently conducted presidential elections” are paramount to Russia’s future. President Putin has not commented on whether or not he will run again.

The United Nations has evoked a rare charter to demand a ceasefire in Gaza.
In a letter, Secretary-General António Guterres cited Article 99 in Chapter XV of the UN Charter which states the UN “may bring to attention of the Security Council any matter which in his opinion, may threaten the maintenance of international peace and security.”
“Nowhere is safe in Gaza,” the letter says. “We are facing a severe risk of collapse of the humanitarian system. The situation is fast deteriorating into a catastrophe with potentially irreversible implications for Palestinians as a whole and for peace and security in the region… I reiterate my appeal for a humanitarian ceasefire to be declared. This is urgent.”
This is a rare move but the United Nations cannot make Israel do anything any more than it could stop the U.S. from launching a war in Iraq.

A new study finds that at least one in four people who took the mRNA Moderna and Pfizer Covid vaccines suffered an "unintended immune response created by a glitch in the way the vaccine was read by the body."
The study comes out of the University of Cambridge’s Medical Research Council (MRC) Toxicology Unit. They say that the mRNA was basically misread by the body due to an experimental tweak in the Covid vaccines and a nonsensical code was introduced into people who took it. This is called "frameshifting."
The Telegraph reports that this errant protein was "nonsensical and harmless protein" but the study does not say that. The researchers say that they don't know the effect of this when they specifically write: "no study has investigated the fundamental question of whether modified ribonucleotides can affect the maintenance of the correct reading frame during translation of a synthetic transcript. Understanding these processes is critical to increase our knowledge of protein synthesis from modified mRNAs in general."
The purpose of this study was to find a way for this not to happen again, not to study the effect of it happening. Researchers say that they have done so and that in future mRNA jabs, they can prevent further frameshifting.
