Комітет із закордонних справ Сенату США одностайно підтримав двопартійний законопроєкт "Про партнерство з Україною у сфері безпеки", який передбачає збільшення військової допомоги Україні
“Ми вдячні американським законодавцям за вкрай важливу і своєчасну ініціативу в умовах ескалації агресивної поведінки Росії щодо України і нарощування військової присутності на кордоні та в окупованому Криму”, – зазначили в посольстві.
Замість зловісного жаху в зверненні до Федеральних Зборів РФ, ми почули від Путіна пасивно-агресивну промову дуже ображеної та трохи переляканої людини.
Ключове послання для внутрішнього порядку денного - «єдність» (боїться протестів).
Ключове зовнішне послання - «безконфліктний світ» (боїться реального протистояння).
Нервове спирання лівою рукою на трибуну, пошук надійної опори.
Переминання з ноги на ногу, відхиляння тіла назад, підсвідома спроба дистанціюватись від болючих питань.
Доктрина «безконфліктного існування» означає, що РФ не тягне економічно не те, що повномасштабну війну, навіть, «просту» гонку озброєнь.
Усе це брязкання зброєю - чистий стратегічний блеф, прикриття власної слабкості, розрахунок (з Китаєм за спиною), що Україна та НАТО здригнуться та дадуть задню.
А ми не дали.)
00:00 – Гості та тема ефіру.
06:53 – Досягнення на засіданні ТКГ. Промова Путіна про самозахист, а не про напад.
22:04 – Нагода для України перевірити свою готовність до війни. Чому не буде нового фронту проти України.
52:35 – Що потрібно для втілення військової кампанії Путіна?
01:01:56 – Росію попередили про військову відсіч у разі нападу на Україну.
01:20:41 – Які питання і справи об’єднують українських політиків.
- Итак, страшный апокалипсис в виде «...послания Федеральному собранию» не сбылся.
В небе Украины не плывут с утра косяки Су-34, и быстрые тени «Калибров», танковые армии не окружают Сумы и Киев.
Уважаемые эксперты, вытаскивайте, что у вас там дальше в запасе.
Я сейчас доедаю борщ, и снова начну волноваться.)

Renouf: Planets aligning for Bennett, but stars need to keep their heads - NRL.COM
Latrell Mitchell and Cody Walker need to show more discipline if South Sydney are to win the premiership this season.
Latrell Mitchell and Cody Walker need to show more discipline if South Sydney are to win the premiership this season. I love Latrell as a player and he is a good kid but there is no need for a few of those things he did against Wests Tigers and theyre the little brain snaps he needs to get out of his game. We saw the same thing with Cody a few weeks prior when he was in strife for striking Nick Meaney, just little things in games that can cost your team when it matters most. It might only be a penalty at the time, or it could be as bad as a suspension to miss an important game, but to win a premiership youve got to put the team first. Latrell will miss four games now, including a massive clash with the Storm in round nine. Cody was suspended for one game. Mitchell placed on report for contact on Nofoaluma I am sure Wayne Bennett would have spoken to both those guys about their discipline because at the business end of the season theyre the two most important players if Souths are going to win the grand final. If you look at the opening six rounds of the season its clear South Sydney are among the top three or four teams who can win this years Telstra Premiership. Penrith are a standout while South Sydney and Melbourne are probably the next best and its because those clubs have virtually the top three spines in the NRL. The season so far: The first six rounds Wayne will want the Adam Reynolds contract situation resolved before the second half of the season, so he can run into the finals confident his chief ball-player is ready to go and has nothing else to worry about but his footy team. I dont know whether it's the planets or the stars aligning for Waynes final season at the club, but he just has this uncanny knack where he seems to have the last laugh on a lot of people. I think we will see Wayne coaching again in the NRL and it will be interesting to see where he lands next year or whether he does take over at a new Brisbane club, if the competition expands in 2023. Ive spoken to Wayne recently and I can tell you he is a very happy man at the moment. Even with the win on the weekend he tried to play the poker face afterwards but he would love a win like that. To see his team grind it out and not just be going week to week comfortably winning is a positive sign. You need those tight games throughout the year as a reality check. He would be very, very happy with that Tigers game because they got the result at the end and now you will see them back it up against the Titans on Friday. Titans v Rabbitohs - Round 7 This will be a huge test for Justin Holbrook and the Titans, to see how they respond after that ridiculous loss to Manly. A big home game against South Sydney after a heavy defeat, we will learn a lot about what the Titans can achieve this year by how they perform this week and whether they can push them all the way. Rabbitohs forward Jai Arrow will be one player up for a big game. He is a former Titan and really led that club, but I really like the way he is playing for the team and embraced his role coming off the bench at the Rabbitohs. There has to be a reason why Wayne likes bringing Jai off the bench and I suppose with the speed of the game now coaches need to be strategic about how they rotate their forwards to keep it tight in the middle of the field when so many points are being scored late in the half. The crazy moments that wound out Rabbitohs-Wests Tigers I dont know if Jai likes coming off the bench but the longer he can be on the field the better it is for the team. He is playing to his max potential and he is another one of these Souths players who will be ready to deliver at the end of the season. The other player I think will be crucial to South Sydney is Benji Marshall. He is just waiting in the wings and could be the x-factor to help them in those close games. He looks as fit as weve ever seen him and he could be the surprise package at the end of the season.

Biden administration says Australia needs to cut greenhouse gas emissions sooner - The Guardian
US president hopes prime minister Scott Morrison will commit to more climate change action echoing the global push
The Biden administration says Australia needs to cut greenhouse gas emissions faster than planned and the US president hopes Scott Morrison will commit to doing more at a virtual summit on the climate crisis on Thursday night. Although the Morrison government has promoted a technology not taxes approach to emissions reduction to convince allies that Australia is serious about making the transition, a senior Biden administration official told reporters Australia could not rely on technology alone to reach net zero emissions by 2050. Joe Biden has promised to use the summit of 40 world leaders, which starts at 10pm eastern Australian time, to announce a short-term emissions reduction target, and called on other countries to do the same. The United States is expected to set a goal of cutting emissions roughly in half over the next 10 years. It follows the European Union confirming a goal of a 55% cut by 2030 compared with 1990 levels, and Britain planning a 78% cut by 2035. Japan and Canada are also expected to set new targets, but Australia is not expected to increase its target of a 26-28% cut. The Biden administration official, speaking on condition of anonymity, repeated an acknowledgment by its climate envoy, John Kerry, that the US and Australia have differences on climate policy. They said it was an open question for Australia how it could turn what has been a very difficult political conversation in the country to an approach consistent with the global agenda on the climate crisis. I think our colleagues in Australia recognise that theres going to have to be a shift, the official said. Its insufficient to follow the existing trajectory and hope that they will be on a course to deep decarbonisation and getting to net zero emissions by mid-century. The official said the differences between the two countries were mostly about emissions reduction trajectory and how do you get on it. Where Australias approach was dont worry, technology will solve the problem, the others believed technology would contribute but was insufficient on its own. The official described the second view as you have to have a set of policies; you have to have national intent; you have to follow up with actions and commitments. We are hopeful [Morrison] will come to the summit and make announcements around both and commit the country to next steps that we think would be critical, the official said. We certainly see them as a strong ally, an ally in technology development, but also an ally in the opportunities for policy development We see enormous potential for joint work between our two countries and have a long history of cooperation. Australia is not expected to make any new commitments about emissions reduction targets at the summit even though there is increasing pressure on the Coalition from business and investors to adopt a net zero target by 2050 and to beef up medium-term emissions reduction targets ahead of the Cop26 conference in Glasgow in November. Facing sustained diplomatic pressure from the US, Britain and the European Union to come to the table with significant new commitments,the Morrison government has promised $540m funding for clean hydrogen and carbon capture hubs and projects, and $566 to build international collaboration on developing low-emissions technology. Analysts say Australias spending on technology, particularly hydrogen, is dwarfed by other countries and it is increasingly out of step in lifting commitments to meet the goals of the 2015 Paris agreement, including pursuing efforts to limit global heating to as close as 1.5C as possible. The government has not set a zero emissions target, but the prime minister has said it would preferably reach it by 2050. This week former prime ministers Kevin Rudd and Malcolm Turnbull called Australias 2030 emissions target woefully inadequate and called on Morrison to pledge at least a 45% cut. The climate summit will be held over two days, starting with a meeting of leaders to discuss raising ambition. It will include sessions focused on investing in climate solutions, adaptation and resilience, climate security, unleashing climate innovation and the economic opportunities of acting. China has confirmed it will attend, and the UK host of Cop26 signalled on Wednesday it would boost its ambition for emissions reduction. After recommendations from the governments statutory climate advisers, Britain will cut carbon dioxide by 78% by 2035 compared with 1990 levels an increase from the current target of a 68% reduction by 2030.
The big mistake Apple made with its new iMac announced in its 2021 product launch event - 7NEWS.com.au
The new iMac is a technical marvel and a culmination of Apple’s stunning engineering achievements. It’s also ugly as sin.
Apples new iMac is awesome. A technical marvel and a culmination of Apples stunning engineering achievements over the past several years. Its also ugly as sin. When Apple overdesigns its products, its typically for form over function. You know the list: getting rid of the headphone jack to make the iPhone thinner, ditching USB-A ports on MacBooks, switching the hinges on its keyboards. Theyre innovations that make Apples products look cool, but dont make their products work any better. Strangely, Apple has chosen function over form with its new iMacs. Theyll work great: The 8-core M1 chip on a desktop computer is going to be ohmygod fast - about twice as fast as the last iMac, Apple claims. The HD webcam, studio-grade microphones and surround-sound speakers are perfect for the Zoom era. Touch ID on the keyboard is a nice... touch. The better-than-4K display is going to be *chefs kiss.* The only problem is you have to look at your new iMac when youre using it. Ugh, those colours. It comes in Easter egg blue, green, yellow, pink, orange, purple and (thankfully) silver. If the colors werent bold enough, Apple added sorta faded complementary colours to the stand, which is an ... interesting design choice. Even if youre a pastel fan (or you wisely choose silver), you wont be saved from the bizarre look of the new iMac. Apples new iMac lineup has a ... distinct ... new look. Credit: Apple That weird chin thats been a feature of the iMac since 2004 is still there, giving the new iMac a decidedly last-generation look. And the new version ditched the Apple logo, making that odd rectangle at the bottom of your screen look even stranger. Its the kind of unforced error that Apple rarely makes. The M1 chip gave Apple a chance to completely rethink its iMac design. Instead, it chose to stick to the familiar shape, put the computers guts below the screen and make the iMac thinner. That comes with some advantages (more on that in a second), but the result is an aesthetic head-scratcher. Why? Credit: Apple The worst feature of the new iMac is the bezel - the white frame around the display. The chin makes the bezel really stand out. It was hardly noticeable in the past iMac iterations, because it was black. The white contrasts with the screen and the chin, giving the screen a seriously weird appearance. Its not 100 per cent clear why Apple went this route, but the company left a few clues. The new iMac is 11.5 millimetres thick, which is the thickness of about one and a half iPhone 12s. Thats insane. It comes with a magnetic power cable because you can move this thing around - it weighs less than five kiligrams. The new iMac kind of blurs the lines between desktop and laptop. In this illustration photographed in La Habra, California, the new iMac computers are introduced during a virtual event to held announce new Apple products, Tuesday, April 20, 2021. Credit: Jae C. Hong/AP But how many people move their desktop computers so often that they need something that thin and light? And for those people, would a few millimetres of thickness and another kilogram or two make that much of a difference? When youre looking at your all-in-one desktop, how often are you really concerned about its thickness? The screen is the thing youre staring at, which is why Apple should have maximised the screen real estate and minimised everything else. Apple probably designed the iMac so thin because it could not because it should. The result, for a company that makes some of the most beautiful gadgets ever conceived, was a big swing and a miss - something that looks like a cross between Jay Leno and an Easter egg.
