Meanwhile, a dangerous heatwave across much of the Desert Southwest and California will linger today with cooler temperatures expected Tuesday, September 8. Critical fire weather conditions are forecast through Tuesday for large portions of the West.
White House Presses Agencies to Soften Rules for Pursuing Regulatory Violators
“The government should bear the burden of proving an alleged violation of law; the subject of enforcement should not bear the burden of proving compliance,” memo says.
The Trump administration is giving agencies until November 26 to update policies for enforcing federal health and safety regulations. The deadline is the latest move in the administration’s ongoing effort to roll back the regulatory burden on companies and boost the economy now reeling from a recession brought on by the pandemic.
In an Aug. 31 memo to agency executives, Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs Paul Ray outlined a long list of “best practices” agencies should follow in making revisions, and asks agencies to coordinate those revisions with OIRA, a division of the White House Office of Management and Budget. The memo advanced a May 19 executive order by Trump and subsequent guidance from OMB in June on reducing regulations and offering more leniency to businesses on enforcement if they show a “good faith” effort to comply with statutory requirements.

United States Declassifies “Six Assurances” to Taiwan
The Trump administration declassified two cables on the “Six Assurances” President Ronald Reagan made to Taiwan in the early 1980s. The “Six Assurances,” which deal with bilateral defense ties and arms sales, have been a foundational element in U.S. policy towards Taiwan and China. The decision to declassify the documents is largely symbolic — the contents of the cables have been known for years — but comes amidst growing tensions between the United States and China, and a greater willingness on the part of the U.S. government to publicly engage with Taiwanese counterparts.

Topics You’re Not Supposed to Discuss at Dinner: The Role of Evangelical Religion in U.S. Foreign Policy
In this episode of Horns of Dilemma, Will Inboden, editor-in-chief of the Texas National Security Review, and Ashlyn Hand, a Ph.D. candidate at the LBJ School at the University of Texas at Austin, speak with Lauren Turek, a professor at Trinity University, about her new book, To Bring the Good News to All Nations: Evangelical Influence on Human Right on US Foreign Relations.
American foreign policy has often had a strong religious component, whether that be in the form of manifest destiny, or in the idea of American exceptionalism. But as Turek documents, in the late 20th century, the specific notion of human rights intersected with evangelical missionaries and their perceptions of the risks associated with communism and other important foreign policy questions, and were able to organize and influence U.S. foreign policy in a new and important way.
The uncertainty of Infodemic was and is a skillfully crafted change from God's world to Satan's world or the New World Order. It was crafted to overwhelm your sensors to the degree you react with your primal brain stem and the agenda messaging.
As a Christian you can manage the overload of information by trusting the Bible with its absolute value rather than news with its subjective value. Ground yourself with exercise and getting away from the screens and cell phone. Understand that everything right now is weaponized. God has His army and Satan has his forces. Whose side will you be on?
In the face of a Covid-19 "infodemic," here's why you should embrace uncertainty
"People want concrete answers. But a big part of science is actually grappling with uncertainty."
Throughout 2020, the novel coronavirus has swept through nearly every corner on the planet. The virus has transformed our lives and livelihoods, and the response from scientists, politicians and the media has created massive information overload.
The following are called Wicked Problems with no solution (except global governance, of course)
- Health vs. the economy
- Indefinite lockdown vs. unlimited reopening
- Symptomatic vs. asymptomatic
- Droplets vs. aerosols
- Masks for all vs. no masking
In February, the World Health Organization declared an "infodemic:" "An over-abundance of information – some accurate and some not – that makes it hard for people to find trustworthy sources and reliable guidance when they need it."
Staying updated on the latest coronavirus scientific advancements and media coverage can feel overwhelming. Scared and confused, some people rely on what some scientists call their "lizard brain" and oversimplify the mixed messages — just to get through the day. Link
So sorry. Food sensors are being deployed into all protein-based foods and also plant-based foods although they were not covered in this article.

As a boy, Merlin Sheldrake really loved the autumn. In the garden of his parents’ house – he grew up a few moments from Hampstead Heath, which is where he and I are walking right now, on an overcast summer morning – the leaves would fall from a big chestnut tree, forming gentle drifts into which he liked nothing more than to hurl himself. Wriggling around until he was fully submerged, Sheldrake would lie there, quite content, “buried in the rustle, lost in curious smells”. As he writes in his wondrous book, “Entangled Life,” these autumnal piles were both places to hide and worlds to explore. Link
We are beginning to see masses of faceless people in the mediaThe long, complicated history of “people analytics”
If you work for Bank of America, or the US Army, you might have used technology developed by Humanyze. The company describes its products as “science-backed analytics to drive adaptability.”If that sounds vague, it might be deliberate. Among the things Humanyze sells to businesses are devices for snooping on employees, such as ID badges with embedded RFID tags, and built-in microphones that track in granular detail the tone and volume (though not the actual words) of people’s conversations throughout the day. Humanyze uses the data to create an “Organizational Health Score,” it promises is “a proven formula to accelerate change and drive improvement.” Or perhaps you work for one of the healthcare, retail, or financial-services companies that use software developed by Receptiviti. The Toronto-based company’s mission is to “help machines understand people” by scanning emails and Slack messages for linguistic hints of unhappiness. “We worry about the perception of Big Brother,” Receptiviti’s CEO recently told the Wall Street Journal. He prefers calling employee surveillance “corporate mindfulness.” (Orwell would have had something to say about that euphemism, too.) Link

Predictive programming from the Smithsonian to prepare you for permanent incarceration
In 1903, at the age of seventeen, the artist Chiura Obata (1885–1975) emigrated from Japan to the United States. He first found work in San Francisco as an illustrator, then, in 1932, joined the faculty at the University of California, Berkeley, where he taught courses ranging from brush techniques to Japanese art history. Obata’s papers include extensive lecture notes, source materials, and syllabi for his courses. In a syllabus for “Free Brush Work,” offered in the fall of 1933, Obata lists the required materials (brushes, paper, pigments, water) as well as the required attitude: “In training and producing art, our mind must be as peaceful and tranquil as the surface of a calm, undisturbed lake.” Link
Why did I insert the following under biblical? Because miracles were displayed and we are all in need of focusing our attention on miracles from God and also that nothing compares to the great hymns of old being played on the great wood organs. My daughter was married on Orcas Island, WA in the Great Organ room and it literally translated you in the Spirit to the Throne Room of God.
The organ at Notre Dame was spared direct damage from the fire and ceiling collapse, but needs to be cleaned and restored.

An Army of Microscopic Robots Is Ready to Patrol Your Body
If I were to picture futuristic bots that could revolutionize both microrobotics and medicine, a Pop-Tart with four squiggly legs would not be on top of my list.
I was so wrong. Last week, Drs. Marc Miskin*, Itai Cohen, and Paul McEuen at Cornell University spearheaded a collaboration that tackled one of the most pressing problems in microrobotics—getting those robots to move in a controllable manner. They graced us with an army of Pop-Tart-shaped microbots with seriously tricked-out actuators, or motors that allow a robot to move. In this case, the actuators make up the robot’s legs. Link
We spend a significant portion of our lives in bed, and in recent years sleep research has uncovered considerable benefits to sleep not previously known. One such study, recently published by investigators at the University of California, Berkeley, suggests that defense against Alzheimer’s disease is deep, restorative sleep, and plenty of it. Specifically, the researchers found a way to estimate, with some degree of accuracy, a time frame for when Alzheimer's is most likely to strike in a person's lifetime. Link

Sitting at the Gate of Situational Awareness
In ancient days men would gather at the gates of a city. They held de facto courts, wisdom was imparted and taught, and it was a place to learn about situational awareness and Intel of what was inbound or going out from troops to food supplies.
Book of Esther, in Chapter 2, verse 21 Mordecai, uncle to Esther, sat at the kings gate. Mordecai sensed perilous times and so he positioned himself at the kings gate where he would be the first to hear of any threats against his people. The kings gate was not a gathering place for idlers, but an assembly of active dignitaries. Elders, judges, and even kings sat at the gates.
Today, we have various news outlet which are our modern gates. Unfortunately, cyber gates leave us deficient because oftentimes we hear the Intel but do not have wisdom transmitted to us. These gates also lack a judicial element and more importantly, what action will you do once you hear the news you acquire. Many are curators of masses of news but to be the salt to our society we need to convert that news to change ourselves and our world. That takes action my friends. I would humbly submit that many of us are news gluttons but we rarely take that news to the next level to change the world. Today, take one news item and do something proactive to make yourself or the world a better place.
God Bless you from the trenches.
