On Wednesday, Wagner chief Yevgeny Prigozhin was shown in a video welcoming his fighters to Belarus, telling them they would take no further part for now in the war in Ukraine but ordering them to gather strength for Wagner's operations in Africa while they trained the Belarusian army.
Prigozhin says Wagner, which led the conquest of the Ukrainian city of Bakhmut, is Russia's most effective fighting force. But his frequent clashes with the Moscow defense establishment led him to stage an armed mutiny four weeks ago.
The insurrection ended with an agreement that Wagner fighters - many recruited from prison - could move to Belarus if they wished
Moving Wagner forces to Belarus and close to the Ukraine border, may be a first step in another attack on Ukraine from Belarus.
Will Putin lapdog Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko send his forces into Ukraine, opening the northern front to stretch Ukraine forces ?

Did it use a flame or a cutting disc for cutting ?

Trump faces charges that include violations of the Espionage Act, which criminalizes unauthorized possession of defense information, and conspiracy to obstruct justice, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
That is the maximum sentence he faces, as he would serve any sentences concurrently if convicted.
Why should any criminal serve "Sentences Concurrently"
If you do several crimes you should serve all of the sentences one after the other.

He/She should be suspended without pay and charged with death due to dangerous driving like any one else would be.
Then through the court case the truth will come out as to what happened and if the police motorcyclist was at fault.

And the police motorcyclist going through a red light came round the corner too fast ?
Her son said she fought “for her life for nearly two weeks

.. a member of the group killed one on Monday afternoon, according to a town official.
Why? The damage was already done. I can understand shooting a bear that has come into a populated area and is a threat, but this one (if it was even the one that attacked) was out in its own habitat doing what bears do. This is just vengeance.
Once it tasted human flesh it would see the next human as food.
Hopefully it was the one that killed the man.
Fishing in bear country, you should have at lest one person with you.
As others have said, having a bear repellant spray with you at lest is a must in bear country.
After catching a fish, you would have it smell on you. Maybe that is what attracted the bear.

Durring hot weather, the goverment has asked people to reduce their use so to lower the strain on the power grid and avoid power cuts.
So what will they ask if every car and truck was electric powered ?
Is there any country in the world that can go full electric cars within the next 30 years ?
Without building more power stations and/or covering the land and costal seas with wind and solar power ?
There is still the problem of recharging time.
When will that problem be solved ?
Can batteries be made that will charge up in minutes than hours ?
If 100 of these super charging batteries started to charge at once.
Would the local power grid survive the sudden drain ?
Will batteries be made a universal shape and capacity ?
So you could pull into a electric station and swap your battery for another.
That would be faster than waiting for your battery to recharge.

He got out of the vehicle, waved to people behind barricades set up by police for security purposes and walked into Trump Tower while making no public comments.
Beefing up his legal team, Trump hired Todd Blanche, a prominent white-collar criminal defense lawyer and former federal prosecutor, to join his defense, two sources familiar with the matter said. Blanche and other Trump lawyers on Monday urged the judge not to allow videography, photography and radio coverage of the arraignment.
In a letter to the court, they argued against allowing such coverage, saying it would "exacerbate an already almost circus-like atmosphere around this case" and "detract from both the dignity and decorum of the proceedings and courtroom."
For once Trumph seems to be doing what his legal team want. To keep his mouth closed and not dig himself deeper and make their jobs harder.
But for how much longer can he stay from putting his foot in it ?

They went to the temple to perform a fire ritual and celebrate the Hindu festival.
Sadly it ended in a watery death for many.
The mouth of the well was covered using iron grills and tiles several years ago. Municipal authorities in January ordered temple owners to remove the covering of the well because it was an unsafe and unauthorized structure, but temple authorities ignored the warning, the newspaper said.
The temple owners should be prosocuted for the deaths and injuries they caused.

The crisis became apparent on Wednesday, March 8. Silicon Valley Bank's chief executive officer, Greg Becker had sent a letter to shareholders stating that the bank would need to raise $2.25 billion to shore up its finances after suffering significant losses.
The bank held an unusually high level of uninsured deposits, and many investments in long-term government bonds and mortgage-backed securities had tumbled in value as interest rates rose.
So a rise in interest rates cause long term bounds and mortgage-back securities to quickly lose so much value, the bank needed to raise $2.25 billion fast to survive.
Thought banks were supose to have reserves to cover things like this.
To protect their customers from such dangers of losing their money if the bank failed.

Wang said the pressing task is to achieve a ceasefire and resume peace talks, and that China would continue to play a constructive role to promote a political settlement, the agency added.
A ceasefire would fail as putin would use it to rest and rearm his invasion force before attacking again.
Peace talks can start ONCE the invading Russian army leaves ALL of Ukraine. Including the Crimea.
Play a constructive role, by condeming the invasion and saying the Russian army is to leave.

Hong Kong's push to attract wealthy families comes as many wealthy individuals and companies shifted to rival financial hubs such as Singapore after Beijing's imposition of a national security law on Hong Kong in 2020.
Covid damage can be reversed in time as restrictions are lifted.
With Beijing national security law in place, who would want to move there ?
While Hong Kong had freedom, it was a financial hub to rivil other hubs.
Now it has fallen down the financial hub list due interference from main land China.
It is not likely to recover from that.

This is truly sickening. How did it get through any kind of ethics screening?
Most likely because they were not working on human cells.
Experimenting on on human cells would involve thinking about the ethics involved.

IOC president Thomas Bach has told Ukraine that its calls for a boycott of the 2024 Paris Games over the possible participation of Russian competitors goes against Olympic "principles".
"Threatening a boycott of the Olympic Games which, as you inform me, the NOC of Ukraine is currently considering, goes against the fundamentals of the Olympic Movement and the principles we stand for," Bach said in the letter to Ukraine's Olympic chief Vadym Goutzeit.
The only principle Bach knows, is his FAT pay check being in danger of being cut.
Bach said the participation of Russian and Belarusian athletes "has not even been discussed in concrete terms yet".
But they HAVE been discussed and most likely behind very closed doors
Why not have the discussion in the open ?
Open and no secrets being hidden.
"Therefore, your letter at this premature stage to your fellow NOCs, to the International Federations, IOC Members and to future Olympic hosts, pressuring them in an attempt to publicly influence their decision-making, has been perceived by the vast majority of them as, at the very least, extremely regrettable," Bach added.
How does he know the vast majority perceived it as extremely regrettable ?
