Across the Volga, the Red Army continues building a massive counterattack that would take the Axis troops by complete surprise. Elsewhere, a tropical cyclone in the Bay of Bengal kills some 60,000 people south of Calcutta.

  62. 2020 Friday A: Russian President Vladimir Putin poses extending the arms treaty between his nation and the United States by one year.  In the U.S., oil majors pitch more campaign cash to the Democrats over the issue of fracking. Why they aren’t sending the money to the GOP is beyond us because if the Democrats win in November, fossil fuels and all the jobs connected to the energy industry are going to VANISH.   Elsewhere, the FCC plans to clarify 47 U.S. Code Section 230 C behind which, online ‘platforms’ such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and others censor conservative views while allowing leftists to get away with whatever they like.  Jack Dorsey at Twitter announced today that Twitter will NO LONGER block hacked information from appearing as long as it’s NOT the hackers posting it.  Good for you.

  64. 2020 Friday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 39,126,112 confirmed cases, +369,823, 1,101,007, confirmed deaths, +5,791, and 26,956,913 confirmed recoveries, +203,913.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 8,109,811 confirmed cases, up 93,363 from yesterday’s reporting, 221,320 confirmed deaths, UP 1,156, and 5,190,654 confirmed recoveries, UP 106,730.  Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 871,028 confirmed cases, 16,844 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 13,922 confirmed cases, 184 confirmed deaths, and 10,915 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 100,855 confirmed cases, 2,331 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 301,896 confirmed cases, 2,141 confirmed deaths, and 262,503 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: Wisconsin- currently, they have 171,481 confirmed cases, 1,574 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Tony Evers, for withholding the numbers of recoveries- you, sir, are a BIG CROOK.
  65. 2020 Friday D: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 28,606.31, UP 112.11 points (+0.39%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,671.56, DOWN 42.31 points (-0.36%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,483.81, UP 0.47 points (+0.013%).  Price of GOLD: $1,902.90 per troy oz., -3.50 (-0.18%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $24.28 per troy oz., -0.125 (-0.51%).  Price of PLATINUM: $865.10 per troy oz., -4.20 (-0.48%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,342.30 per troy oz., -24.80 (-1.05%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.06 per #, -0.0045 (-0.15%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $40.78, -0.10 (-0.24%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.70 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.85 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.69 Afghan afghani.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On May 11, 1999, the Move released an archival live album: “BBC Sessions.”  Much more popular in the UK than they ever were in the United States, the album contained additional tracks from throughout the group’s rather short career cut at the Beeb.  We hope you will check this one out and consider adding it to your collection because despite whatever you might have heard, this band was among the major acts upon which, future bands would lay their foundation and could rock as hard as could the Who.  Please seek it out and enjoy- you will be glad you did.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[ii] We should have shared the music of Badfinger at the time we promoted that of the Beatles but guess what?  We flipping failed just as we failed to promote the music of Thunderclap Newman at the same time we did the Who.  One day, we sure as heck will so please remain vigilant.

[iii] We feel bad that we did not begin promoting the music of Paul Revere and the Raiders around the time we shared the music of the Flamin’ Groovies.  Well, we hope to slip them in sometime within the next 6-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for the time that we do.  You will be glad you did.
