Russia has pulled back troops in Kherson to minimize losses. Now Ukraine will retake territory on one side of the Dnieper River and Russian troops will command the other.
Russia has been evacuating this area for weeks as Ukrainian attacks have persisted. They worry that strikes on the Kakhovka hydroelectric dam located near Kherson pose a serious risk to both the military and civilians.
A Russian general says that Ukrainian losses are over 12,000 soldiers in October alone and Russian losses are “seven to eight times lower.”
The river could provide an opportunity for peace talks if Ukrainian leaders would agree to it. Peace talks now!
Experts say that supplies will be replenished in December and January but that leaves a tricky few months in between. And Bloomberg reports the worst diesel shortage will hit in the Spring. The E.U. has backed itself into a corner by putting sanctions against imports of Russian products that could replenish the shortage. This will put a crunch on supplies of all kinds and contribute to increased costs of living. Maybe that’s why retailers in the UK say that they are not expecting a very festive holiday season.

Many of the plastic bag recycling programs collected consumer plastics and then stored them in warehouses for indeterminate amounts of time. When they were asked about it, they said that they would suspend collection programs due to “untenable pressure” on their business models.
Many studies in the U.S. and the U.K. have shown the same thing. Plastic is not recycled. It ends up in poorer countries as litter. This has been the case since China stopped accepting plastic imports from other countries in 2017.
Climate expert Michael Shellenberger says that the best place for your plastic trash is in the trash can, not recycle bins. Landfill and incinerators can handle plastic. So-called recycling programs cannot.
Glass, aluminum, and paper are recycled, but plastic is not. It is a hard habit to break! We have begun putting plastic in the trash in the trash can and it feels strange and it fills up the trash can faster but the data is clear so we’re breaking the habit!
Jennifer Aniston is trending because the actress admitted she struggled with infertility in her 30s and 40s. She said she "threw everything she could at it." So all of those tabloids that predicted her pregnancies for all of these years owe her an apology!
