The mask as "theater".
It's astounding how many people just don't get it. But the mask mandates will continue even though the scam is so apparent. Just as with all the other scams.

No surprise here...China's wealthiest individual has a biotech/vaccine manufacturer.

"Outside of his stake in Nongfu Spring, he is the head of a vaccine maker, Beijing Wantai Biological Pharmacy. That company went public in Shanghai this year, which also helped boost Zhong's wealth."

Zhong Shanshan, the founder of the popular Chinese bottled water brand Nongfu Spring, has overtaken Alibaba ( BABA) founder Jack Ma to become the country's wealthiest person, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires index.

Earlier this year, China was already home to most of the world's billionaires, with more than the United States and India combined, according to a global rich list compiled by the Hurun Report.
According to Bloomberg calculations, Zhong's estimated net worth was $20 billion last month — suggesting he has tripled his fortune in just a matter of weeks.
The boom is expected to continue.
In recent months, a parade of initial public offerings has unfolded around the world, especially in China.
Hong Kong is the world's second most popular venue for stock market listings so far this year, behind only the tech-heavy Nasdaq in New York, according to data provider Refinitiv.

World record waterspout outbreak over the Great Lakes

232 waterspouts/funnels have been confirmed over the Great Lakes from September 28 to October 4, 2020, in the second world record waterspout outbreak of the year, according to the International Center for Waterspout Research (ICWR).

From August 16 to 19, 2020, a short-lived waterspout outbreak produced 88 funnels, setting a new world record waterspout outbreak -- the first of the year.Both outbreaks were a result of Canadian cold air sweeping over the region, which made surface air prone to rise."There were an average of 33 per day," said ICWR director Wade Szilagyi, also a meteorologist at Environment Canada. "That’s why I label it as a world record. You have to take into account the period."

Szilagyi noted that the number is remarkable and he has "never heard of anything like that."

David Piano, a storm chaser and a photographer, said he witnessed 38 waterspouts over a five-hour period.

UN says 6 million people affected by flooding in East Africa - heaviest rain in a century for some areas
The number of people affected has increased more than five-fold in four years.

The number has gone up from 1.1 million in 2016 to nearly six million so far this year.

There are fears that the situation will worsen when the short rains peak in November to hit most countries in the region.

Parts of the region are recording the heaviest rains in a century.

In 2019, a big temperature differential between the east and west sides of the Indian Ocean was blamed for heavy rainfall.
