Posted in: Chinese spacecraft lands on Mars in latest advance for its space program See in context

Like it or not, China produces almost all of the most advanced computer components, electronics, all of the parts (capacitors, resistors, diodes, etc.) for PCB's in the world. NASA is using Chinese parts to go to Mars.

Yes, but none of the science and technology behind that is Chinese..in parallel they copy/steal the blueprints of these products and in no time you similar Chinese products..

Call it fake news or stolen technology isn't going to make more Americans go to grad school in the sciences and engineering, which are full of Chinese and foreign students at US universities.

Now why are the science streams in the US universities full of Asians, why are Chinese students going to US universities and not Chinese universities..now why is Chine unable to copy the US education system..what's the catch...

Nakba, or "catastrophe, is when over 750,000 Palestinians were forcefully displaced and expelled from their homes by the Israeli Zionist government from 1947 to 1949, creating the worlds largest refugee humanitarian crisis in the world.

That is accurate, literally living like refugees on there own land.. but Israel did not create Israel..the British did that..and not only Israel, most of the boundaries in the middle east were carved out by the British and the French as they saw fit...and that's one reason why that region is always in some conflict or another.

This is funny. Inaccurate, but funny.

The people of Gaza are not allowed to export their farm produce. Not allowed to fish in the sea. Not allowed to extract the oil and gas off its coast. Really, Gaza is the world's largest prison camp.

Yes, that happened after Hamas took over control of Gaza in 2007, compare this to the West Bank where the economy has considerably improved since 2007.

Hamas does not represent the majority of Palestinians..

Good Point, the Fatah group represents majority of the Palestinians and they can live in peace and co-existence with their neighbors, it's the militant Hamas group (backed by Iran) which does not want any peace, and is the reason for this conflict.

What news sources do you suggest?

Sure.. for COVID start with Corona Odometer site and than lookup the details with the respective agencies for that country, like the CDC in the US..and than than seacrh for some neutral analysis of this pandemic..not easy as google search will be dominated by MSM, mostly left aligned.. but you will come across articles like these.. and always avoid "narrative" styled articles..which unfortunately dominate the news business.

Who to believe, some anonymous right-wing internet poster or a reputable news agency

Sure, your sources are mostly left aligned "reputable" news agencies, so go with them.. or maybe for once may want to do a neutral assesment of the actual ground situation.. not easy as the "reputable" news agencies are the easy way out.

and political rallies for Modi's Hindu nationalist party.

Standard narrative, no mention of political rallies of other parties..

vaccine rollout has faltered and public anger and mistrust have grown.

vaccine rollout was/is going fine..vaccine export was stopped..the vaccine export has definitely faltered, hope the vaccine factory of the world India bans all vaccine exports, maybe than the narrative based dis-information will change..

All of the propaganda, misinformation and conspiracy ..

Sure, lots of it, and all directed at Modi..

Satyanarayan Prasad saw the video about lemon juice and believed it. The 51-year-old resident of the state of Uttar Pradesh distrusts modern medicine and has a theory..

This article itself is promoting this propaganda and misinformation...

Much of the misinformation travels on WhatsApp..

Yes.. this misinformation tool should be immediately banned..

False claims can discourage people from getting vaccines, seeking the doctor’s help, or taking the virus seriously..

That's again propaganda and misinformation, people are lining up to get vaccinated, 176M already have the shot, COVID hospitals were at full capacity, as everyone with symptoms was seeking doctor's help, now as the cases are going down the hospital occupancy has started easing up. This article itself is promoting propaganda, misinformation and conspiracy.

Bodies have washed up in the Ganges, the river that flows through the state, as crematoriums are overwhelmed and wood for funeral pyres is in short supply..

May want to lookup that first statement..as that was a fake photoshop..wood for funeral pyres in short supply, what?? and what about all the burials... guess there is no land for burials to... these 100% fake statements are simply mind boggling.

Posted in: More than 4,000 Indians die of COVID-19 for second straight day See in context

Modi's brand of Hindu nationalism owns a goodly part of the breakdown of the Indian health services by impeding the implementation of the proper prophylactic measures to stop the spread of Covid-19.

absolutely!

In desperation, some Hindu devotees are now even turning to the holy cow for salvation, slathering themselves from head to toe with bucket loads of dung for protection against the invisible virus. When superstition trumps science, the "Darwin Award" awaits those who have thrown common sense to the wind.

The standard Modi haters and the standard narrative... posting similar comments again and again..at-least post something factual and believable. So only Santana Dharma (Hindu's) are afftected by COVID, Muslims,Christians and other religions apparently have not been affected, lovely.. keep on hating...

The situation is particularly bad in rural areas of Uttar Pradesh, India's most populous state with a population of over 230 million. Television pictures have shown families weeping over the dead in rural hospitals or camping in wards to tend the sick.

100% fake news... that state is managing the pandemic much better than many other Indian states, anyone interested could look-up the state wise data in the below link, click on State Data.

Posted in: Israel, Hamas trade deadly fire as confrontation escalates See in context

This is a common strategy for forces that are far outnumbered and out-equipped by the opposing force. That doesn’t make it morally correct, though.

There is no justification in hiding behind civilian population..none.. Israel as such has the moral high ground.

Posted in: Israel, Hamas trade deadly fire as confrontation escalates See in context

Not counting the nine children killed by the IDF yesterday, Israel has killed 2,113 Palestinian children in the last twenty years.

These Hamas freedom fighters, militants or whatever are always hiding in the civilian population.. the MO is very simple, fire the rockets from the civilian population, and let the Israeli counter strike do the obvious and than blame Israel for the massive civilian deaths... and in this they have been very successful.

Posted in: Johnson seeks to bolster economy as Queen Elizabeth opens new parliament session See in context

There is virtually no voter fraud in the UK (one case in 2019) so this is simply an attempt to disenfranchise an estimated 2m people whose ID photo is unclear,

If there is no voter fraud than there should be no issue with the voterID, and why these 2m do not have a clear photoID, would this be a reference to the illegal immigrants..

Posted in: 'No doubt' U.S. has undercounted COVID deaths: Fauci See in context

Fauci sure loves talking without really telling us anything at all.

but a University of Washington study released Thursday estimated deaths at more than 900,000.

But I think there's no doubt... that we are and have been undercounting,..

Think that's how they are trying to report the real or close to real numbers, so we have study by some university estimating a different number and almost immediately but subtly is backed up by Fauci.. as for Fauci he has been at this position since 1984.. that's one reason why folks on this permanent positions, they never retire, can play at as this want it.

You are using a 2011 report about murder in Chicago as evidence..

That evidence was from the dream Obama era. there should have been no black violence than right.. and yes most of this black violent crimes are black-on-black crimes... crimes within the community.

So, no, there is no evidence that “95% of the attacks are by Blacks in Democrat cities.” Thanks for the confirmation.

That was expected did not read the complete file did you..go thru the file again..it was a few pages ahead page 53, 70.5 % is though not 95% ..in that you are right.

The exact tweet..

That's the problem , the hater types read and believe literally can never see thru the article or tweet..as to what is exactly being described or tweeted.. the reference to nitrogen is the nitrogen in the air, 78% is nitrogen.. now for per the below article..

Such Nitrogen plants, which take air from the atmosphere as raw material, are available across India in various industrial plants. Therefore, each of them has the potential of being converted to an oxygen generator to tide over the current emergency.

India is the world's fifth richest nation yet very little was spent on building hospitals and investing in healthcare..

If you mean PPP, than maybe but I will not count on that.. as for building hospitals and investing in healthcare, may want to do some research but that's not why the comment was posted in the first place..right.
