Biden and his "Biggest bill on Climate Ever, Ever, Ever"


The $369 billion Biden Bill on Climate is the biggest bill ever. It was put through with Biden's fellow senators and his long experience in the Senate of the US through the efforts of Senator Coon and Hickenlooper who took a new approach to negotiating with Senator Manchin appealing to his place in history and in the party. Biden said while signing the bill "Joe I never doubted for a moment." Senator Schumer of New York did the negotiations and persevered till the end when Manchin was on board. Adjustments were made to allow increase in drilling to bring down oil prices to create a win-win for all so that it could be called The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 as pharmaceutical prices would also come down with the government retaking the right to negotiate pharmaceutical prices lost under Republicans. It is also a Win for Europe, India, and the World.

How women can navigate the waters to find a family friendly workplace and get men to share in household chores. This is important for women's Mental Health.


During the pandemic women increasingly stayed at home while men continued to work.

As a result women during the coronavirus feel worn out or burned out in addition to losing income. WSJ offers ways women can tackle this problem both by getting men to share in household chores, and finding employers who are family friendly as the coronavirus pandemic declines in 2022.

Xi Jinping's vision for China


Much lower incomes for the 40% of Chinese who live in rural areas, and the worsening inequality during the pandemic with workers losing jobs or on low pay, with China lacking a system of unemployment insurance like the US and EU countries, have created a new urgency for president Xi to tackle these problems. Glaring inequality with IPO's creating new millionaires or billionaires are frowned upon and president Xi personally axed the Ant IPO. After a crackdown on corruption involving about 1 million people, Xi has shifted investment to rural areas to improve conditions of living. State run enterprises are seen as more reliable in achieving Xi's vision of less inequality after the excesses of unregulated capitalist development since 1990.

How lifting of a ban on research manipulation of a virus in 2018 by NIH (US) and HHS is related to the transmissibility of coronavirus and the pandemic


Research on increasing the pathogenic power of the virus by engineering part of its genome is seen as a possible cause of the pandemic in these articles in WSJ and other media sources, based on new memos released under the Freedom if Information Act. These memos by virologists to Dr.Fauci at NIH in the US gave their analysis after their first look at the virus genome for coronavirus. The lifting of the ban on such research by US Health ministry and the NIH agency in 2018 led to labs in overseas locations being funded with US funds to conduct such research.
