Newsom defeats the recall.
Not enough momentum.
They opened venues/restaurants etc. right around when the recall went through.
probably some vote rigging, but not enough to make up for the wide gap.

RE: News / Current Events / Random Vids
Philippine boxer and Senator Manny Pacquiao has announced his candidacy for next year’s presidential elections, presenting a potential obstacle to President Rodrigo Duterte’s succession plans as the race for the top post takes shape.

A faction of the ruling PDP-Laban party nominated Pacquiao on Sunday in a video-streamed national convention. Earlier this month, another camp in the PDP-Laban led by Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi named Senator Christopher “Bong” Go as its pick for the elections, with Duterte as his running mate.

“I’m a fighter and will always be a fighter, inside and outside of the ring,” Pacquiao said at the event. “All my life, I haven’t backed down from any fight. Nothing is impossible if it’s ordained by God.”

Pacquiao’s presidential bid is seen by analysts as a threat to Duterte’s candidate in 2022, as the boxer could split the vote in the southern island that both come from, opening the door for opposition figures. Pacquiao ranked fifth among 15 possible presidential candidates in a June survey by PulseAsia.

Pacquiao is known in the boxing world for his championships in several weight divisions, and was among the world’s highest-paid athletes in 2019, according to Forbes. In his latest bout last month, the 42-year-old lost to Cuban figher Yordenis Ugás.

The Filipino boxer has been a senator since 2016 and also served as a congressman. He was once a loyal ally to Duterte, defending the president’s deadly drug war and death penalty push. Recently, however, Pacquiao has criticised the administration for alleged corruption and its South China Sea stance, amid a split in the ruling party.

“We need progress, we need to win against poverty, we need government to serve our people with integrity, compassion and transparency,” Pacquiao said. “We are fed up with the promises of change.”

And promptly issued vaccine mandates to go to any establishment as soon as Newsome defeated the recall. They get what they voted for. Cali is done.

BlackRock, HSBC among largest buyers of Evergrande debt: Morningstar
Quote:NEW YORK, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Fund giant BlackRock and investment banks HSBC and UBS were among the largest buyers of the debt of embattled Chinese real estate developer Evergrande Inc, Morningstar data shows.

BlackRock added 31.3 million notes of Evergrande's debt between January and August 2021, pushing its stake in the company to 1% of the assets in its $1.7 billion Asian High Yield Bond Fund, according to Morningstar.

HSBC increased its positions in the company by 40% through July, according to Morningstar. UBS increased its position by 25% through May, the latest date available in the fund tracker's database.

None of the companies responded to requests to comment for this story.

At the same time, other large fund firms such as Fidelity, Pimco, and Allianz cut their positions in the company by up to 47% between January and July, Morningstar said.

Growing fears that Evergrande will default on its $305 billion in liabilities has rattled global markets this week as investors worry that a downturn in the Chinese property market will spill over into the global economy.

A set of fossilized footprints have been unearthed in New Mexico. They date from 21000-23000 BP.

https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/science.abg7586

This is about 7000 years before humans could have crossed from Asia into the Americas using the Bering Land Bridge. There's other evidence for humans in the Americas even earlier than this, but those desperately clinging to the Clovis First Theory have been doing anything they can do muddy the waters. I think this find renders the theory dead beyond all hope.

That puts to rest the native American theory. The Indians came over here 15,000 years ago. This predates that.
