Now, the operator of the wrecked plant has begun testing new facilities to treat and dilute the water to a point where it is no longer harmful, to be released into the Pacific Ocean in spring or summer next year — Australia’s autumn or winter. But University of Adelaide director of the Centre for Radiation Research, Education and Innovation Tony Hooker says the first release could come as soon as summer 2023.

Biden mulling ‘Israel model’ for Ukraine – NYT –Washington reportedly opposes offering NATO membership while the nation is at war but may vow to arm it for years to come | 14 June 2023 | Joe Biden’s administration is reluctant to offer Ukraine full NATO membership and is instead pushing for the “Israel model,” meaning a time-limited commitment to maintain the flow of Western weapons to the country, the New York Times has reported.

Russian officials have described the hostilities in Ukraine as part of a U.S.-led proxy war against their country. Moscow has called NATO’s expansion in Europe one of the key causes of the conflict.

Guy gets accused of racism by his doorbell – Amazon shuts down his smart home | 13 June 2023 | …A significant number of Americans willingly invite in their homes these advanced devices that constantly eavesdrop on their conversations and actions. Yet, that’s become the norm with gadgets like Echo and Alexa, which feel like creepy spies sitting in the corner, recording every noise you make. Well, one guy learned the hard way just how risky that idea can be when his doorbell accused him of being “racist” and Amazon completely shut down his entire “smart home.” The guy’s name is Brandon Jackson, and he gave a detailed account of what went down that fateful day… Brandon was unable to access his “smart house” devices and figured he had been hacked. Little did he know what was about to happen, all thanks to the Amazon Supreme Court, the mighty deciders of who gets electricity and who doesn’t. As it turns out, there wasn’t even a racist comment made… So, instead, it’s apparently more acceptable to completely cut off someone’s access to their own home based on the mere possibility that they might be dirty, filthy, Trump-supporting racist. But here’s the bigger question: when did Amazon become the arbiter of free speech in the United States?
