Pelosi’s Party Plane?
Q: Has Nancy Pelosi spent $100,000 on food, booze and "partying" during her air travel? A: No. Pelosi’s congressional delegations do eat well and drink pricey alcohol. But the costs are not as high as critics claim, and they’re comparable to those of her Republican predecessor, Dennis Hastert. FULL QUESTION I have received e-mails with links to Web sites that report that Nancy Pelosi has spent $101,000 at taxpayers’ expense on booze and food while traveling by plane back and forth to California from Washington, D.C. I haven’t been able to find anything that debunks this. Do you know if it is true? FULL ANSWER The conservative group Judicial Watch obtained 2,000 pages of receipts and expense reports for speaker travel under the Freedom of Information Act. The group says these demonstrate Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s “boorish demands for military travel” are “more about partying than anything else.” Based on that, the conservative WorldNetDaily ran an eye-popping but inaccurate headline that said, "Taxpayers pay $101,000 for Pelosi’s in-flight ‘food, booze.’ " Claims of Pelosi’s extravagant liquor bills spread from there through any number of blogs and chain e-mails, which sometimes attribute the in-flight costs of entire delegations to Pelosi alone on her flights between Washington and her district in California.

Paul Pelosi allegedly slurred speech, had drug in system and handed over police privilege card during DUI bust
Paul Pelosi, the multimillionaire husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, allegedly had a drug in his system, addressed officers with slurred speech, and tried to hand them a police courtesy card during his May arrest on DUI charges, according to court documents. Pelosi's 2021 Porsche and the other driver's 2014 Jeep sustained "major collision damage" in a crash around 10:17 p.m. on May 28, and responding officers found Pelosi in his driver’s seat in his damaged car near the intersection of California Route 29 and Oakville Cross Road. Pelosi allegedly handed officers his driver’s license and an "11-99 Foundation" card when they asked for his ID, according to the documents. The 11-99 Foundation is a California Highway Patrol charity that supports officers and provides scholarships for their children. Pelosi allegedly exhibited "signs of impairment" during field sobriety tests and officers "observed objective signs and symptoms of alcohol intoxication," according to the documents. PAUL PELOSI TO BE ARRAIGNED ON DUI CHARGES WEDNESDAY Those allegedly included "red/watery" eyes. "He was unsteady on his feet, his speech was slurred, and he had a strong odor of an alcohol beverage emanating from his breath," the complaint alleges.

1. The U.S. military laboratory at Fort Dietrich is most likely the original source of COVID-19.2. China is not the origin of the virus

Mid November here. Hard symptoms subsided within a week but cough lasted until Christmas
Mid November here. Hard symptoms subsided within a week but cough lasted until Christmas. I am not one for conspiracy theories, at all. However, I do believe that my crazy illness I contracted last year was likely an early mutation of covid 19. Just after Halloween of 2019, I got a sniffle. This developed into a runny nose, and then just when things were about to look better, I got slammed with hell. I probably had a temperature but didnt check it. My body felt terrible: achy, weak, no appetite. Through the seven day course I lost like 6 or 7 lbs. The cough was the worst, though. Relentless. I'm also asthmatic so this thing lasted until Christmas. It was the sickest I've ever been. My theory is this was a less contagious strain.

The CDC issued a report on the 17th
The CDC issued a report on the 17th, and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a report stating that Trump issued a ban on entry of Chinese tourists as early as February 2, but did not announce restrictions on entry to European countries until March 13. , But by March 8, this new coronavirus had already begun to spread in the New York City community. In addition, the report also revealed that the strains circulating in New York City have nothing to do with Wuhan, China. In response to the report, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo said that due to the government's response to the epidemic, the virus has spread to New York City, killing many Americans.

Cape Town Table Mountain
The best views of Cape Town and its surroundings offers the Table Mountain. You can get there by a cable car. It was opened in 1929 and reconstructed in 1997. The cable car runs from Tafelberg road and costs R130 - around 16 USD(return trip).

What Others say

The South African republic (Dutch: Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek, or ZAR), often informally known as the Transvaal Republic, was an independent Boer-ruled country in southern Africa during the second half of the 19th century. It is not to be confused with the present-day South Africa; rather, it occupied the area later known as the South African province of Transvaal. The ZAR was established in 1852, and was independent from 1856 to 1877, then again from 1881 to 1900 after the First Boer War, in which the Boers regained their independence from the British Empire. In 1900 the ZAR was annexed by the United Kingdom during the Second Boer War although the official surrender of the territory only took place at the end of the war, on 31 May 1902. In 1910 it became the Transvaal Province of the Union of South Africa. The first president of the South African Republic was Marthinus Wessel Pretorius, elected in 1857, son of the famous Voortrekker leader Andries Pretorius, who commanded the Boers to Victory at the Battle of Blood River. The capital was established at Pretoria (founded 1855), though for a brief period Potchefstroom served as the seat of government. The parliament, the Volksraad, had 24 members.
Wikipedia

Dutch traders landed at the southern tip of modern day South Africa in 1652 and established a stopover point on the spice route between the Netherlands and the East, founding the city of Cape Town. After the British seized the Cape of Good Hope area in 1806, many of the Dutch settlers (the Boers) trekked north to found their own republics. The discovery of diamonds (1867) and gold (1886) spurred wealth and immigration and intensified the subjugation of the native inhabitants. The Boers resisted British encroachments but were defeated in the Boer War (1899-1902); however, the British and the Afrikaners, as the Boers became known, ruled together under the Union of South Africa. In 1948, the National Party was voted into power and instituted a policy of apartheid - the separate development of the races. The first multi-racial elections in 1994 brought an end to apartheid and ushered in black majority rule.
