...the producers said that the show will also highlight the impact of COVID-19 and that masks will "play a very important role" in the story of the ceremony [ritual], though it is not yet clear what that means from a practical perspective. "If that's cryptic, it's meant to be," said Soderbergh. "But that topic is very central to the narrative."
There’s little chance stars will use their Oscar bully pulpit to demand states reassess the science and open their cities up for business. It may be “neanderthal” thinking, but it just might work.

K yall the DOD handed over half their ip addresses to a very shadowy darpa connected company with very little explanation or public scrutiny on.......yep inauguration day.
Boston – A very strange thing happened on the internet the day President Joe Biden was sworn in. A shadowy company residing at a shared workspace above a Florida bank announced to the world’s computer networks that it was now managing a colossal, previously idle chunk of the internet owned by the U.S. Department of Defense.
That real estate has since more than quadrupled to 175 million addresses – about 1/25th the size of the current internet.
The military hopes to “assess, evaluate and prevent unauthorized use of DoD IP address space,” said a statement issued Friday by Brett Goldstein, chief of the Pentagon’s Defense Digital Service, which is running the project. It also hopes to “identify potential vulnerabilities” as part of efforts to defend against cyber-intrusions by global adversaries, who are consistently infiltrating U.S. networks, sometimes operating from unused internet address blocks.
What a Pentagon spokesman could not explain Saturday is why the Defense Department chose Global Resource Systems LLC, a company with no record of government contracts, to manage the address space.
Deepening the mystery is Global Resource Systems’ name. It is identical to that of a firm that independent internet fraud researcher Ron Guilmette says was sending out email spam using the very same internet routing identifier. It shut down more than a decade ago. All that differs is the type of company. This one’s a limited liability corporation. The other was a corporation. Both used the same street address in Plantation, a suburb of Fort Lauderdale.
Saturday 24 April brought a little information cluster bomb in the Washington Post with the promising headline “Minutes before Trump left office, millions of the Pentagon’s dormant IP addresses sprang to life.”
It turned out, on investigation, that the “minutes” were a literal reference. The statutory end of Trump’s term was 12 noon EST on 20 January 2021, and according to computer records, the floodgate on the “dormant IP addresses” opened at 11:57:35 AM EST.

Minutes before Trump departed office, a mysterious Florida company reportedly took over a slice of the Pentagon's internet space
A Department of Defense spokesperson told the AP in a statement that the government was publicizing the space to "assess, evaluate and prevent unauthorized use of DoD IP address space."
On Twitter on Saturday, the AP posted: "What a Pentagon spokesman could not explain is why the Defense Department chose Global Resource Systems LLC, a company that seems not to have existed until September, to manage the address space."
On inauguration day, at 16:57 UTC, or 11:57am in Washington, a message was posted by an "entity that hadn't been heard from in over a decade," Madory wrote.
He wrote that the timing was "moments after the swearing-in of Joe Biden as the President of the United States and minutes before the statutory end of the administration of Donald Trump at noon Eastern time."
While en route to the International Space Station after a successful launch in Florida, the four crew members were notified they could soon collide with an unknown object.
There was no time to perform an avoidance manoeuvre and instead the astronauts on board SpaceX's recycled Crew Dragon capsule, the Endeavour, were told to put on their pressurized suits in case of a collision, reports Futurism.
"The object being tracked is classified as ‘unknown'.

Here it comes to a Soldier near you. I’m unable to post the visual, but in a nutshell, if you are a soldier based on some Army base you will not be able to travel off base and visit any public establishments unless you have a Covid Vaccine with proof.

Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Interference in a United States Election
So Q points to Arizona, not Georgia which was the Stacey Abrams fiasco, or other absurdities, but Arizona, which, just so happens to be the focus of an unprecedented (proper use) detailed audit of an election a few years later?
[350,000] votes. So let's see if the Maricopa vote swing total is at or near 350,000. That would really give Hot Wheels the street cred- sarc/off.
