Corporate donors flee Republican Party following Capitol Hill riot

Posted By Maurice Clark

From the ABC.  It looks like there could be a lot more fallout for certain republicans.  Big donors are hitting them where it hurts... their pockets!

"Disney has had enough.

So has Coca-Cola, Walmart, Hallmark, Amazon, Airbnb and Mastercard.

After last week's violent insurrection on Capitol Hill in Washington DC, which left five people dead, dozens of the world's biggest corporations are pulling their political donations from America's Republicans."

One small step in the fight against light pollution

Posted By Maurice Clark

I tried to get this started more than 20 years ago, but few were interested. Now 2 of my former students leading the fight have succeeded.

"New push to cut light pollution and keep the skies dark in WA.

But in a move welcomed by stargazers, the West Australian Government has signalled it plans to treat its night sky as an asset and protect it from excessive lighting."

Hi Jim,

I know the culture is a little different, but when you look at how effective Australia has been in stopping the virus, you would certainly think that things could have been better managed in the US. Australia has had very tight lockdowns and border controls. The government has very tight restriction on who can enter the country. Not even citizens can travel back unless they have been vetted and approved as hardship cases. Even then, only a limited number are allowed in each week and those that are allowed in still must do 14 days quarantine at their own expense.

Even between states was severely restricted.  For example, my home state of Western Australia very quickly closed its borders to other states. As a result there has been very little of the virus in WA. I was talking to my sister last week and she was full of praise for this, saying they are living an almost normal life as a result.

The was a report a couple of weeks back by an ABC reporter who managed to fly from Australia to the US. He was astounded at the difference in attitude by Americans. I will try and find it again, but it might be too far back now.

Cheers,

Maurice
