First COVID-19 vaccination
I didn't even feel the shot. This was no worse than a flu shot. However, my arm immediately started feeling sore. It still feels a little sore, but not very much. Afterward, I had to wait in an observation area for 15 minutes which was no problem.

Remember the old kid joke about the Yellow River in China? We would make up a book title and author. This would make us laugh and laugh. As an example, Yellow River, by I. P. Daily. In the light of this article, it doesn't seem as funny as before.🙁Scientists don't know why one-third of U.S. rivers have turned yellow or green - Mic

Re: 10 Surprisingly Awesome 2020 Movies You Probably Missed
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9hRd8GKCksThe number one on the list is "The Vast of Night", which I watched twice on Amazon Prime, once with family. I liked this movie quite a bit, although it is ultra-low budget which limits it a little. Most of the scenes drag out longer than usual, but the movie keeps you in suspense and is well-acted. There are also some creative camera shots. The movie starts by showing a Twilight Zone like show on an antique television. The camera zooms into the TV screen and suddenly we are in the story set in 1950's New Mexico.

Amazing hydrogen paste
In Powerpaste form, it's completely stable at temperatures up to 250 °C (482 °F). It carries 10 times the energy of a similar weight in lithium batteries, and substantially more than a 700-bar H2 tank of the same weight. The researchers say vehicles running on a Powerpaste powertrain can expect a range "comparable to – or even greater than – gasoline."
When it comes time to release the energy, a plunger mechanism extrudes the paste into a chamber where it reacts with water to release hydrogen at a dynamically controlled rate, which then feeds a fuel cell to create electrical power with which to run an EV powertrain or other device. Part of the paste's impressive energy density comes from the fact that half of the hydrogen released comes from the water it reacts with.
Fwd: acronyms are racist
From: Larry Trout
The San Francisco Unified School District's art department moved to eliminate acronyms from its name, saying that the abbreviations are tied to "white supremacy culture."
"We are prioritizing antiracist arts instruction in our work," said Director of the Arts Department Sam Bass while announcing that the acronym "VAPA," which stands for visual and performing arts, would be changed to the SFUSD Arts Department.
"It is a very simple step we can take to just be referred to as the SFUSD Arts Department for families to better understand who we are," Bass said.

Re: Tesla only making money because laws take it from other companies
Eleven states require automakers sell a certain percentage of zero-emissions vehicles by 2025. If they can't, the automakers have to buy regulatory credits from another automaker that meets those requirements -- such as Tesla, which exclusively sells electric cars.It's a lucrative business for Tesla -- bringing in $3.3 billion over the course of the last five years, nearly half of that in 2020 alone. The $1.6 billion in regulatory credits it received last year far outweighed Tesla's net income of $721 million -- meaning Tesla would have otherwise posted a net loss in 2020."These guys are losing money selling cars. They're making money selling credits. And the credits are going away," said Gordon Johnson of GLJ Research and one of the biggest bears on Tesla (TSLA) shares.

Fwd: Death of Hong Kong
"To uproot ourselves like this is definitely not easy. But things got uglier last year, the government was really driving us away," said the businesswoman and mother of two young children who didn't give her family name because she feared repercussions for speaking out against the Chinese government. "Everything we value – freedom of speech, fair elections, liberties – has been eroded. It's no longer the Hong Kong we knew, it's no longer somewhere we can call home."
Cindy, who landed in London last week, is one of thousands of Hong Kongers fleeing their hometown since Beijing imposed a draconian national security law on the territory last summer.
Some are leaving because they fear punishment for supporting pro-democracy protests. But many others, like her, say China's encroachment on their way of life and civil liberties has become unbearable, and they want to seek a better future for their children abroad. Most say they don't plan to ever go back.
Many firmed up their exit plans after Britain announced in July that it would open a special immigration pathway for up to 5 million eligible Hong Kongers to live, work and eventually settle in the U.K.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said this week the offer shows Britain is honoring its "profound ties of history" with Hong Kong, a former colony that reverted to Chinese rule in 1997 on the understanding that it would retain its Western-style freedoms and much of its political autonomy not seen on mainland China.
