Thousands came out to protest rising energy costs in Austria this weekend. Last weekend, the same happened in the Czech Republic as a growing movement seeks to tell politicians to stop playing politics with living standards.
In Austria, protestors accused the government of failing them and instead looked out for the interest of “globalists.” They protested what they called “suicide sanctions” and “NATO’s warmongering.”
Are European politicians listening? Well they may turn off the light show on the Eiffel Tower to save on energy costs. But only one-half hour early every night. Helpful. Thanks.
The White House says that crypto mining operations could get in the way of climate change efforts and that they may have to do something about crypto miners.
The White House said that “electricity usage from digital assets is contributing to GHG emissions, additional pollution, noise, and other local impacts, depending on markets, policies, and local electricity sources.”

The United States is going to set rules for how much space junk will be allowed. Who gave them this jurisdiction? Dunno.
But the FCC won’t wait for an invitation from The Creator to set some rules. They will vote this month on how to address the “growing risks of orbital debris.” According to The Indian Express, the “new rules would apply to both U.S.-licensed satellites and systems, and non-U.S. satellites seeking U.S. market access.”
Space debris is an increasing problem as off-planet missions often leave behind “defunct satellites, discarded rocket cores, and other debris.”

Scientists in Israel say that they have developed a blood test that can detect cancers before any symptoms have begun. The test has successfully identified colorectal cancer and can also be used to screen for pancreatic cancer, the scientists say.
The blood test will now enter clinical trials testing for pancreatic cancer, a cancer which is normally found once people have symptoms or through routine screening. Scientists say that they can adapt the test for a range of other cancers too.
In a peer-reviewed study, the blood test was accurate in 92% of cases.
