A growing online conspiracy theory is using the tagline “died suddenly” to baselessly claim that COVID-19 vaccines are killing peopleResults from 6-year-old Anastasia Weaver’s autopsy may take weeks. But online anti-vaccine activists needed only hours after her funeral this week to baselessly blame the COVID-19 vaccine. COVID-19 vaccines prevented nearly 2 million U.S. deaths in just their first year of use. “Died Suddenly” used a screenshot of the headline in the film, portraying his death as vaccine related. Tyler wasn't vaccinated, but his story appeared in the “Died Suddenly” film nonetheless.

), the current context to the Chinese balloon story and the question of cui bono is worth a deeper dive... I took a bit of time to dissect the “spy balloon” story - both how it is portrayed in the US and China’s response. China sent a “spy balloon” over highly strategic US sites. The story therefore being that China chose to disrupt a meeting with its own president and to sabotage its own efforts at détente in the US-China conflict... One alternative hypothesis, much less likely, is that it’s internal Chinese forces trying to do the same thing by sending this big balloon.

Chinese spy balloon flies above Charlotte, North Carolina on February 04, 2023. Bloomberg News reported on Friday that Chinese balloons flew over the U.S. while President Trump occupied the White House. The Wall Street Journal also independently reported that Chinese spy balloons have flown over the U.S. before, though didn’t specify the era. If you’ll recall, President Trump was president at that time and we never got an answer to who was behind that. Ignoring the incoherent ramblings of Trump for a moment, the Chinese spy balloon situation still left plenty of valid questions about what should’ve been done and when.

He pushed back against the idea of a potential ban on the tackle, calling it "overkill." "There isn’t one player saying "hey I’m about to drop my weight on his ankle when I tackle him." Steelers defensive tackle Cam Heyward replied, "So dumb… they trying to make defenders extinct lol""This is so stupid. There has not been any official decision on enacting a rule change as it relates to the "hip-drop" tackle. The NFL has previously altered its rules to ban horse-collar tackles and low hits on quarterbacks due to the risk of injury.

Russian decisive offensive operations are unlikely to target Zaporizhia City from the western Donetsk–Zaporizhia frontline as the Russian military continues to prepare for an offensive in western Luhansk Oblast. Russian forces conducted limited offensive operations northwest of Svatove and continued offensive operations around Kreminna.  Russian milbloggers continue to make contradictory claims about Bilohorivka (12km south of Kreminna), with one milblogger claiming that Russian forces captured the settlement and are currently clearing it and another claiming that Russian forces are still fighting to capture Bilohorivka.  Another Russian milblogger claimed that renewed Russian offensive operations south of Kreminna indicate that Russian forces plan to encircle Siversk. Russian offensive operations along the western outskirts of Donetsk City appear to have slowed in recent days.
