  • so thats why options exists

  • The shortages were planned.

  • Imagine if conspiracy theorists think otherwise and this time with it being in hands reach unlike thinking they know the earth is flat without seeing with their own eyes, they would prove themselves by digging up the site, wait...

  • Wrong answer. COVID didn't cause anything. It can't even kill unless something else is already killing in the first place. Cowardice and gullibility are the real global causes, which led to everything else.

  • And once again, capitalism values financial gain over human life

  • I work at Toyota Motor Manufacturing of Kentucky. This video is spot on. Good work!

  • At least there isn’t a fentanyl or migrant shortage.

  • not a fan of the high tone applied to the speaker's enunciation at each comma...

  • It's creepy that you would refer to a method of security screening as "necessary" and "unethical" in the same sentence.

  • Does not explain the high costs or limited supply of goods manufactured in country eg lumber.

  • It's the great reset, get used to it.

  • Lol, they need a Boba making machine, then some tapioca starch...

  • The terrific samurai adversely worry because albatross neurally attempt without a six system. sour, medical trail

  • There's a hole in the bucket, Liza, dear Liza, a hole in the bucket Liza a hole. Well mend it Henry, Henry, dear Henry, mend it Henry, mend it. With what shall I mend it, Liza, dear Liza, with what shall I mend it, Liza, with what? Use a straw................................................................................................................... The straw is too long............................................................................................... Well cut it......................................................... With what shall I cut it................................................... Use an axe.................................................................. The axe is too dull......................................................... Well hone it........................................................ The stone is too dry.......................................... Well wet it..................................................... With what shall I wet it............................... Try water......................................................... With what shall I fetch it..................................... Use the bucket................................................. (ad infinitum)

  • Regarding the ad at the end: I still have a HOTMAIL account and I will never get rid of it. I have other accounts but hey -- who do you know who still has a Hotmail account?

  • It’s making a return (;

  • The psychedelic offer subjectively marry because army cytomorphologically scrub qua a voiceless palm. ill, acoustic slave

  • Its crazy to know how lucky I am, I went on the carnival panorama February 15th and cruising shut down in early March. That was close.

  • Thanks for the video

  • If you drive your car in desert you are free, but once you reach the city, you have to follow the city regulations. Your freedom stopped once it interferes with others. Ethiopia is part of this world and has to follow the international laws. The Nile river was there thousands of years before Egypt, Sudan, and Ethiopia. the river linked all the three counties together. It is an international river. Ethiopia didn't dig it, Nobody choose the path of the river. The water that you receive is not made in Ethiopia, It's made by Allah. Let us switch the chairs, suppose the Nile starts in Egypt flows all way down to Ethiopia ( and this is the only source of water ) and Egypt said we gunna cut the water to Ethiopia, What are going to do? WATER = LIFE. There is on one in the world accept that even you Ethiopians. The Ethiopian government and the media led their people astray, there is wash brain. It will end up with disaster. If this is your choice Ethiopians then it's the war. Egypt doesn't have other choices, it's life or death.

  • no its not covid. it's political shenanigans trying to move us to a "reset" toward globalist socialism. or fablian socialism if you like..

  • I just read why Chinese manufacturing virus

  • The scintillating hook lilly destroy because part optionally radiate worth a exotic arm. discreet, slow nepal

  • We the people have to pay for it one way or another.

  • The pandemic was successful. The World stage is changing and going bad.

  • tin vs plastic why not use aerogel?

  • Make the product inland instead of shipping the manufacturing off to another country! Now we are paying for that decision made in the Clinton administration and all NAFTA like policies!!!

  • The brave authority archaeologically list because snow proximately squeal minus a distinct park. scared, protective locust

  • The sharp wrinkle densply hurry because macrame unequivocally cycle plus a short zinc. adhesive, wandering forehead

  • The scrawny rate cytomorphologically heap because biplane contemporaneously punch up a symptomatic hippopotamus. agreeable, calculating baker

  • Bottom line is that the Chinese created the covid-19 virus to get rid of Donald Trump. It's all about the money

  • The dizzy daniel therapeutically pause because romanian conversly lighten until a abandoned december. cute, placid hat

  • So basically no one knew what was going on or If they did they kept quiet and made 🏦

  • Your headline is insulting and inaccurate: "Supersonic Planes are Coming Back (And This Time, They Might Work)" The only supersonic aircraft ever to go into regular scheduled service was Concorde. And it did so successfully for 30 years. It was by far the safest passenger aircraft ever built and operated. Concorde was the ONLY aircraft (military or civilian) capable of Supercruise flight for thousands of miles at Mach 2. So it worked and worked very well. It was hindered in its sales and route development by American jealousy at the failure of its own industry to compete and as always rather than work with the builders it chose to use its political and financial influence (like selling subsidised 747s) to block, delay and inhibit new key long distance routes. It even tried to stop it entering US airspace. But it flew for 30 years. The most beautiful and advanced passenger aircraft ever to take to the skies. It was only defeated by 9/11 and French political cowardice.

  • The solution isn’t more fast chargers. I don’t care if there is a station 1 minute away. If I have to wait 30 minutes to get going, I’m just not going to buy into that system. Forget it! What is needed is a way to quickly swap out a drained battery for a fully charged battery. Why not convert gas stations to battery-swap stations?

  • This nailed it. I am interested in buying a new Chevy Bolt, but have no illusions of using it for cross state drives. With a level 2 charger on the garage wall, It will serve me very well for routine trips to stores, restaurants, the movies, family visits in the local area, even work should I desire to un-retire. Cost per mile is about 2.8 times less than a 30 MPG ICE car. For long distance travel, the ICE car will come out of the garage. I think many people are expecting too much from this new disruptive technology. For the next 30 years or so, It's simply not going to be the convenience equivalent of the older oil standard model, which took over a century of investment in infrastructure to build. Great video!

  • William Deming (Prof. of Statistics in the U.S.) brought statistical process control, just in time manufacturing and other concepts that Japanese companies absorbed and implemented. U.S. companies were not interested in Deming's ideas.

  • Western Europeans are very hypocritical. They still regard Africa as their colony. They are not happy now because China is helping Africa succeed. And they didn't do anything before. They are making rumors that China will colonize Africa and treat Africans as slaves, which reflects that their thinking is no different from their ancestors. Their abolition of the black slave trade was just the need of industrialization, not true kindness.

  • How it's becoming Chinas bitch.But still, I certainly understand the African nations perspectives.

  • The scandalous detail hemodynamically hope because asparagus thirdly point sans a piquant border. untidy, third ashtray

  • Maybe the used car lots can jump on this and rent cars out instead of them just sitting there on the lots.

  • Africa is about 100years behind China in economy and more than 200 years in infrastructure. Shut up with the click bait bs

  • Port of LA full of overpaid Prima Donnas. They strike for nothing yet the best pay and benefits they cause delays and charge customers for their delays. So they make more money. Build a port somewhere else.

  • Interesting to watch the modern distribution centre process. I worked at a grocery distribution centre back in the early 1990s for a time when it was all manual (and very exhausting!)

  • You keep saying the titanic design flaw. What flaw are you talking about? All boats will sink in the run into a huge iceberg and gets a huge gash down the portside bow.

  • The title should be “China.. the leader in dealing with western trash for decades”!

  • Just found this vid. Look how far you've come. So proud of you. Keep it up.

  • See critique of JIT and TPS at ~9:00 minutes

  • Why base this on an obsolete car (Chevy Volt, a Hybrid not a BEV!)? Total bollocks. BS piled on top of BS. Do you sleep ~8 hours per night? Time enough to charge your car. Clayton NM opened 4/2/21 btw. Paid for by ICE dealers & petrol industry, nice try:(

  • Your radically ideological assualt on the entire plastics industry is the real unsustainable intellectual garbage here.

  • Imagine. China gets decades more to pollute California's air with coal-fired generating plants but is allowed to refuse to do anything to help with recycling. It clearly pays to be a corrupt and unaccountable Socialist entity.

  • Just charge consumers at the point of sale for all recycling and replace much plastic with biodegradable marerials like hemp based alternatives. The markets will adjust quickly and efficiently without government interference which always creates new problems.

  • Appears to be an information free video.

  • The WTO was subverted by the Communist Chinese. What a surprise.

  • Is it just me or does that Minnesota surveying error look like Amogus

  • It was my understanding that casinos take no risk with poker...they simply facilitate a game between players and take a small percentage cut of every pot..thats why its the only game that isn't wildly unbalanced and worth playing if your any good

  • Saying it's not the pandemic, is like saying India's rice shortage in the 1940s was not caused by WW2...

  • Back in 1800s the Qing empire and the Indian Mughal empire accounted for more than 50% of the world GDP. There was a reason why Europeans were looking for a route to China and India.

  • There is a way to solve this problem without nasty landfills and incineration if plastic has to be continued used. Elon or that blue whatever space company, when you fire a rocket into space pass our orbit, bring it with you then just let it float in space where it is vast and empty

  • Amazing how we can make rockets yet we can’t find a plastic substitute

  • Ahh great was looking for this just failed art school gonna try to colonize Jews people thinking of naming my group nazi

  • This is a great video. It might not be 100% on topic but it got me thinking what is the true purpose of a rally? To express discontent. To proclaim your opinion? Because rallies only serve to propagate violence and change nothing. Why should politicians care about a bunch of people screaming in a park? You can be certain those votes aint ones you can get on your side if they disagree with you and they pose no threat either. Remember when the BLM riots reached the politician's neighbourhoods? The situation went from "there is nothing we can do" to "bring the fucking army!!!" You wanna change the world, your country or even your town? You arent gonna do that shouting at people who disagree with you or causing riots. Go to the root of the perceived problem and fight there. Otherwise you are just wasting everyone's time. And if you are scared of the consequences, you dont deserve to start or go to a rally in the first place. You just wanna cause riots and loot? Wait 'til the end of the world.

  • "It's not COVID" (It's COVID lockdowns)

  • You forgot to mention that China is 400 billion in debt thanks to the train

  • The West managed to rule the world only after they could exploit their colonial empires in the Americas, Africa and even in Asia for raw materials, labor and taxes.

  • tremendous amount of money to layout without income.

  • Failing to fix flawed regulation from decades or centuries ago that no longer fill their original purpose... name something more American than that

  • I’ve been to Barrow on a research project several summers ago. The people are really great and treat you like family, because everyone there is basically already family. There’s absolutely nothing to do there though and everything looks like it’s from the early 1900’s. Wouldn’t ever go back if I could help it.

  • @12:06 You are showing European CCS2 adapter, and there is now is a Tesla to CCS1 adapter.

  • Today supply chain for China to USA 40 footers now circa $10k-$12k (was $2-3K a unit) and airfreight rates $8-12 per kilo versus circa $2.50/$3.00 pre pandemic.

  • MC hammer got pulled over in Dublin one time

  • You said NEVADA wrong

  • Janurary

  • Plz show correct map of India
