This is a very useful article discussing the chinese movement into Italy, from 2108: The Chinese Workers Who Assemble Designer Bags in Tuscany all sorts of fascinating tidbits... excerpt: The Chinese firms gradually expanded their niche, making clothes for middle-tier brands, like Guess and American Eagle Outfitters. And in the past decade they have become manufacturers for Gucci, Prada, and other luxury-fashion houses, which use often inexpensive Chinese-immigrant labor to create accessories and expensive handbags that bear the coveted “Made in Italy” label. Many of them are then sold to prosperous consumers in Shanghai and Beijing. It’s not just Italian brands that have profited from this cross-cultural arrangement: a Chinese leather-goods entrepreneur I recently met with just outside Prato was wearing a forty-thousand-dollar Bulgari watch. More than ten per cent of Prato’s two hundred thousand legal residents are Chinese. According to Francesco Nannucci, the head of the police’s investigative unit in Prato, the city is also home to some ten thousand Chinese people who are there illegally. Prato is believed to have the second-largest Chinese population of any European city, after Paris, and it has the highest proportion of immigrants in Italy, including a large North African population.
Toggle Commented Mar 16, 2020 on Sunday Inaction at JustOneMinute March 14, 2020 An Uplifting Moment, in the Time of Coronavirus By Claudia Rosett We could all use some encouragement right now, most of us hunkered down, washing our hands, full of foreboding and wondering just how long this strange new coronavirus out of China will up-end our lives and one way or another imperil us all. Since January, I've been following the news of its spread, from the terror at the source, in Wuhan, to at least 142 countries as I write this, including America, and the misery now engulfing the worst new hot spot, Europe. This pandemic has brought forth heroes -- the Chinese netizens braving the Communist Party's censors and lies, the dedicated doctors working themselves to exhaustion and in some cases succumbing to the virus themselves. But even these stories of inspiring people have been grim. So, how incredibly welcome to find in this landscape something so defiantly beautiful that it brought tears to my eyes. And, yes, I came across it this afternoon on President Trump's Twitter feed. Whatever you make of Trump's tweets -- love them, hate them, or simply don't care -- this one is worth a look. It's a 54-second video clip, which as best I can determine was filmed in Italy last September. Italy is right now the hardest hit country after China, where this virus originated. More than 21,000 Italians have been confirmed with the disease, and more than 1,400 have died. Striving to support each other, in a country now under lockdown, Italians have been singing from their balconies. Many of these scenes are beautiful, haunting, but suffused with sadness. On Saturday afternoon, Trump sent out a tweet under the caption, in all caps, "THE UNITED STATES LOVES ITALY!" In today's context of pandemic, in the shadow of this virus, it is glorious. It serves as a message of defiance, of joyous humanity, of a dawn to come, and you can't do better than set it to Pavarotti: Please, turn up the sound, and have a look.* *

I'm spending some time in northern Michigan (normally a downstater in Hillsdale). I went to Mass tonight, Sacred Heart in Elk Rapids. Elk Rapids is a small town north of Traverse City, on the western side of Michigan. Sacred Heart is in the Diocese of Gaylord. Last night Stations of the Cross were held at Sacred Heart. Today there was a sign on the entrance doors. All Masses have been cancelled until 6 April throughout the diocese. I don't think we've hit peak panic yet. But I went into a local mini-supermarket since Mass wasn't being held. I normally stop n after Mass most Saturdays. Surprisingly crowded, but perhaps that is normal, afterall I was coming in about a hour earlier than I have on previous Saturdays. There was a little bit of everything on the shelves. When I walked by the TP shelves, there was a low warning light, but still enough. A sign said, "please limit your purchase to one (12 roll) bundle. I watched a couple discuss the matter. They each took a bundle and then checked out separately. Yep. Not peak panic yet, but getting there.

BREAKING: We’ve Got The Vaccine, Says Pentagon-Funded Company excerpt: A Canadian company says that it has produced a COVID-19 vaccine just 20 days after receiving the coronavirus’s genetic sequence, using a unique technology that they soon hope to submit for FDA approval. Medicago CEO Bruce Clark said his company could produce as many as 10 million doses a month. If regulatory hurdles can be cleared, he said in a Thursday interview, the vaccine could start to become available in November.
What are we seeing? Step back, step way back. The wuflu, the corona virus, COVID-19, whatever, what if it is a deliberate act of war designed to take down President Trump, the "America First" agenda, and ultimately, once and for all, America? All the globalists are on the same side. That side is opposite of President Trump's agenda. He is a threat to the international globalist order. He has been turning the world ever so slowly. Think Brexit, think other efforts of peoples striving for autonomy. He is inspiring peoples everywhere. Mueller failed to stop President Trump. Impeachment failed, and failed to stop President Trump. Globalists, "he must be stopped." From Wall Street to Brussels, to Red Square, to Davos, to Tehran, to Bejing. Who is standing in the way of a new world? One man. Kill the economy, force voters to break with the man. Probably wargamed in earnest last spring (2019) after the earlier trade negotiations, the deal which was overruled. The ChiComs have no concern for the short-term loss in population inside or outside their border. Multi-layered. No plan precisely survives implementation, but what we are seeing is just not seat-of-the-pants response. The entire project is following an arc. What's next?
A blond woman was speeding down the road in her little red sports car and was pulled over by a woman police officer, who was also a blond. The blond cop asked to see the blond driver's license. She dug through her purse and was getting progressively more agitated. "What does it look like?" she finally asked. The policewoman replied, "It's square and it has your picture on it." The driver finally found a square mirror in her purse, looked at it and handed it to the policewoman. "Here it is," she said. The blond officer looked at the mirror, then handed it back saying, "OK, you can go. I didn't realize you were a cop..."

Any tempering of comments I make here is done out of a sense of civility, decorum, and respect for the host. There are tremendously powerful group and private mechanisms which can be brought to bear on unacceptable individual behavior within a group. Those mechanisms have been employed here from time to time as most, if not all of us, have witnessed. Nobody enjoys being scolded in public. I aim to misbehave. Those who have a problem with that can go commit unnatural acts upon themselves.

On balance, I'd prefer JOM to be an "unsafe" space rather than a "safe space." YMMV.

From the TWIP Special edition. This is a must: It was only a matter of time, "My Corona" by the Rappin Ratz Clever lyrics and even more, the nuance of a 'bat' first at the 30" point then more and more. Putting it right on China. (2'50")

Why is a 22GB database containing 56 million US folks' personal details sitting on the open internet using a Chinese IP address? Seriously, why? Inquiring minds want to know.
seems that guaido is destined to be el presidente in waiting of Venezuela, now and forever
boliva? wazzzz that? HA, good one narc,
The nest dogs ever, Miss M. Did you ever go to the English Shepherd Society page on fb? There's also an ES History page with many images from the late 1800s and turn of the century. Best use for fb that I know, looking at English shepherd images
it's all positioning for power. the party of slavery, succession, segregation, and no socialism doesn't care about the constitution... and what is socialism but lip gloss on communism... how's that working out in caracas, used to be the jewel in LatAm, when I was in Panama everyone would go to caracas for vaca because it was the most cosmopolitan city between the rio grande and Tierra del Fuego

Not too sure about Lifeforce narc, never heard of the movie, but now that I have, doesn't sound like my cuppa tea. I think this is an excellent commentary by a Iranian woman on the strike against soleimeanie, most strongly recommend her powerful testament:
