Jan. 6 committee makes the case that Trump was involved in ‘criminal’ activity

The court filing looks simple enough: The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection wants to see certain records and is asking a judge to order them released.But the judge isn't the only one the committee is trying to persuade. Another audience — perhaps the most consequential one — may be the nation's top prosecutor, Attorney General Merrick Garland.The 221-page legal brief filed by the committee on Wednesday presents a vivid narrative about Jan. 6 and reaches a stark conclusion: In trying to overturn the 2020 election and stay in office, former President Donald Trump and others “may have engaged in criminal and/or fraudulent acts.”The Jan. 6 committee has no power to charge anyone with a crime. That authority rests with Garland's Justice Department, whose focus thus far ...

Someone has had an idea to mitigate the droughts of the future: cover the ditches with solar panels

California has a problem. A serious one that threatens to become entrenched with global warming. In 2021 it suffered one of the driest years of the century, so much so that at the gates of autumn it was facing an extreme shortage that affected around 90% of the entire territory. In addition to a greater risk of fires, the lack of rainfall translates into low dams, restrictions on consumption and problems in hydroelectric plants. To tackle at least part of the challenge, the state has developed a vast 6,400-kilometre network of canals. The big question is: Can you get more out of it? What if in addition to using it to transport water, it was used to generate electricity? At the University of California (UC) there are technicians who are convinced that it is. And they put on the...

how Russia imposes the news gag

Last Tuesday many televisions, radios and web pages in Ukraine they faded to black. At about half past four in the afternoon, a hail of Russian bombs exploded on the Kiev telecommunications tower in an attack with which Moscow he sought to “suppress informational attacks” against his country. Antennas in smoke in a besieged city, the image that this is a war for terrain with conventional weapons, but also a battle for the story in which he shoots himself with propaganda. With internal pressure growing, the Kremlin is sharpening the mechanisms of repression. The Russian Parliament approved this Friday an amendment that imposes millionaire fines and sentences of up to 15 years in prison to those who spread "falsehoods about the Russian Army." This measure has forced large inter...

China pursues economic and social stability in the face of a volatile world

before a volatile world There is no priority other than stability. Stability, always present in the official discourse in Beijing, becomes an obsession when the war between two trading allies and the national economy faces major challenges. In this line, the two figures that each year monopolize the attention of the opening of the National People's Assembly, the Chinese Parliament. The economy will expand "around" 5.5%, a goal as humble as it is sensible, and the military budget will grow 7.1%, three tenths above the previous one. The first Minister, Li Keqiang, alluded to the uncertainty in his speech in front of the 2,800 representatives who had come from all over the country to attend a decaffeinated edition. The global focus is anchored in Ukraine and internal politics h...

Film music and women who give everything in Cáceres

March starts and a few drops of rain have escaped into the sky. It is not to throw rockets, it would be necessary for the deluge to last days and days to compensate for the dryness that we drag. Thus, with a bit of winter weather and the sadness of war as a backdrop, a week full of exhibitions has passed. Same as last time, by the way. It is a good thing that in our city there is a rotation of samples, a good art menu to have a feast with first and second courses and dessert.

The also musician Niño Índigo (Julio César Fuentes Domínguez), presents 'Pictorial Enredos' at Belleartes, a search for himself through art and his creative processes, the organization says in a press release.

Russia, toxic brand

Russia has become a toxic brand. Western companies get rid of links with their Russian counterparts. The disbandment is general. It affects technology companies (Apple), container transport, sportswear (Nike and Adidas), furniture stores (Ikea) and several oil companies, among others. Many sell their solidarity with Ukraine with the same fervor with which they declare themselves friends of the environment. The colors – green or blue and yellow – change according to interest. The sanctions have been tougher, deeper and more unanimous than the Kremlin could have anticipated. Putin is a man increasingly isolated from reality, as was Joseph Stalin. Telling the truth to a satrap costs his life. His narrowest circle has been reduced to half a dozen advisers who militate in a s...
