China痴 Qinghai province has announced a ban on virtual currency mining operations, a government document said Wednesday.

Qinghai is the latest coal-based crypto mining hub that is set to completely eliminate the industry.

Awesome! This means less dirty air in the world / less dirty air blowing into Korea.

I love science.

I took all 3 science courses in last year of high school despite none being necessary.

I began uni as a Physics major before f'in' the math and becoming a Philosophy major.

I made $2,200 on one newspaper story about the medical repurcussions (I interviewed patients in Winnipeg and Arizona) of a newly termed sick building syndrome in the late 1990's because both CP & AP picked it up.

I scoffed at 9/11 testimony of free fall, given thousands of engineers' claims.

I gave up dairy and refined white flour in favor of berries and nuts due to science.

A double-blind placebo-controled study is worth its weight in gold ( if not sponsored by a company with a vested interest).

I was a working newspaper journalist on 9/11. I was aghast at what i learned the following 12-18 months. I came to Korea shortly thereafter.

Do not search for information and live in blissful ignorance.

Remember, 9/11 wasn't an inside job, JFK was killed by a lone gunman and German, Russian and American false flag operations are historically-documented facts one can ignore in a post-truth world.

And buy toothpaste with fluoride.

Makes me sad to hear you believe 9/11 was an inside job and other conspiracy theories. Are you open to changing your mind? Read more from both sides and ye shall find the truth. Even ask us questions and info and we will help.

Red raspberries are in season!

A handful of fresh berries is a joy.

I've been playing the new Ratchet and clank game on the ps5. It is a REALLY great and beautiful game :D And definitely this year's game of the year. (and it isn't even the end of the year yet.)

Bought a bunch last week and put them on my morning WeetBix/oats. Supermarkets generally also stock these 900won probiotic yoghurts (with the little sprinkles on the side). Apparently they have 7g of protein in them! Not sure if that's true, but it's definitely the best tasting 900won yoghurt and I've been throwing the berries in there too.

I hate sticking to the same fruit or veg, variety is king.

Since the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' current tracking began in 2000, there has never been more job openings in America.

https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/workers-name-price-extremely-choosy-161212745.html

Jobs that paid $10 or $11 an hour last year are paying $14 or $15 today.

I just was watching Martin Sheen in an interview for some football film he's in this year. I only saw the man I met in a food court in Kamloops, B.C. in 1987 (He had a taco salad w/o meat and i had an Orange Julius) when he was directing Cadence (starring after Gary Busey pushed Charlie around in Go Bananaz, the night club eight blocks from my home, though offically Busey "quit" the project because he was "called back" to L.A. for another project - my best friend said Busey pushed Charlie in the club over a dispute about his girlfriend). Fun fact: Charlie went into cocaine rehab after that.

Under the new guidance, the 途ule of four will not be in effect unless more than 1,000 cases are logged a day for a sustained period of time. For 500-something daily cases, up to eight people can congregate. There痴 no limit on how many people can meet up when there are less than 500 cases a day.

Concerts, festivals and sporting events can host up to 5,000 people at a time, but droplet-generating activities such as singing and cheering are discouraged. For protests, the rules are stricter, with crowd sizes of 50 to 500 permitted depending on the case rates.

Facilities that are considered to be at high risk of contagion, such as bathhouses, nightclubs, escort bars and karaoke lounges, can operate full-time as long as the number of cases occurring per day stays below 1,000. Once it exceeds the threshold of 1,000 cases a day, they can only open until 10 p.m.

http://m.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20210620000173

People who are semi-vaccinated, meaning two weeks have elapsed since taking just one of the two prescribed doses, no longer need to wear masks outdoors. The capacity and gathering limits don稚 apply to them either. For instance, they are counted out from the maximum number of people public spaces like cafes and restaurants can entertain at a time.

Once two weeks have past since the second dose, people are considered fully vaccinated, after which point even wider-ranging waivers from social distancing are granted. On top of being exempt from post-travel quarantine, they may also be able to take their masks off in places like movie theaters where maintaining a safe distance from another person is difficult.

No before that, I called a clinic and got in right before they switched to the online only system. But now I can't log into the COOV app to prove it!

Those who have received at least one COVID-19 jab will no longer be obligated to wear masks outdoors starting July as well.
