So far eight of Trump's advance people, including a least one Secret Service guy, tested positive.

Trump's former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn's case (lying to the FBI) has been dismissed by the Appeals Court. Trump will be dancing today.

KY and NY primary results

Post by Jupiter Sets at Dawn » Wed Jun 24, 2020 7:41 am

In both cases, incumbents and party-liners (Democrats, mostly) appear to be losing to new-comers, but in both cases, it'll take about a week to count the majority of the votes, which came in by mail.

Corona virus news

Post by Jupiter Sets at Dawn » Fri Jun 26, 2020 12:05 pm

Sweden and Ukraine have the most cases, but there's a signifigant resergence of cases of the virus occuring in the European Union according to WHO.

Texas had over 6,000 new cases reported overnight and closed the bars.
Florida had over 8,900 new cases overnight and also closed the bars.

The White House held a briefing on the virus with Dr. Fauci and I forget her name the other one as well as Pence who kept trying to hurry them away from the microphone. Pence wouldn't say he thought people should wear masks.

ETA: Mitch McConnell came out about 2:45 PM and said WEAR A MASK to protect others as well as yourself till there's a vaccine. He said it's a way to signal you care about your fellow Americans.

Russia

Post by Jupiter Sets at Dawn » Sat Jun 27, 2020 9:45 am

Russia has been in the news for threatening behavior lately. Apparently they were paying bounties to Afghan soldiers for killing American soldiers. Trump knew that months ago, but hasn't responded. Story is in NYTimes.

Three times recently, Russian fighter jets AND bombers have entered American airspace.

Here I was thinking about asking if everybody misses good 'ol fashioned earthquakes, hurricanes, mass shootings, bombs, tornadoes, and airline crashes - all of which seem to be sheltering in place themselves!

Then, the last few days we start getting a few of those specific, high-impact point events again. I'll try to get a few of them up and analyzed today.

Louisville protest shooting

Post by Jim Eshelman » Mon Jun 29, 2020 7:56 am

June 27, 2020, "night," Louisville, KY

At a Breanna Taylor protest (man shooting into a crowd) resulted in one death and several injuries. So far, the best time I have is "Saturday night." *I'll use 7 PM as an estimate.)

The shooter was a photographer who had attended several of the protests, was disruptive at them, and had been asked to leave.

Louisville, it turns out, was an area tightly identified by the solar ingress as setup for tragedy. Then the only operative lunar ingress picked the fortnight easily with both general toxicity and hysteria and the specific indications of most mass shootings (a three-axis aspect cluster of Venus square Mars-Neptune (all closely angular), and all three of them square Pluto. - Then the day kind of peters out with nothing decisive (a couple of angular Moons that, at most, show the mass gathering event).

Since the CapQ is so inexpressive / neutral, it's worth examining the Arisolar and Libsolar for events localized to the day. We are rewarded for our digging.

Pakistan stock exchange shooting

Post by Jim Eshelman » Mon Jun 29, 2020 8:57 am

June 29, 2020, 10:02 AM, Karachi, Pakistan
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_Paki ... nge_attack

A shooting broke out at the Pakistani stock exchange today "around 10 AM" (NYT) (trading opened at 9:30). Wikipedia already has a page on it that gives 10:02 AM, so I might as well go with that unless something else shows up.

At least five people are dead (some of them cops), by one report; other reports are now starting to say only 3, and that they were all cops. Seven others were injured.

We're still learning most of the details. We know there were four assailants who started by throwing a hand grenade at the front door then "started firing indiscriminately" (CNN) with automatic rifles. A group called the Balochitan Liberation Army has claimed credit

NOTE - News is now that all four attackers have been killed, so total deaths is 7.

PVP aspects (a bunch of azimuth conjunctions exactly on the Vertex) give life to an otherwise drab Arisolar. (Moon and Mars were just slightly farther away, Pluto and Saturn a bit beyond that, so possibly these orbs eventually should be stretched; for now, I'm staying inside the original research on PVP aspects.) Also, as Jupiter-Pluto comes back, we get a new wave of ideological terrorism. All the active charts are strong, with CapQ MC on Mars bringing the event home to the day.

Year: Capsolar (Dormant.)
Year: Cansolar (Dormant.) Moon-Uranus.

SCOTUS decisions

Post by Jupiter Sets at Dawn » Tue Jun 30, 2020 7:22 am

June 30, 2020 10AM Eastern Supreme Court
5-4, Roberts with majority
State of Montana program that gave tax credits to people who donated scholarships.
Montana said no tax credits for scholarships to religious schools according to their constitution.
SCOTUS threw that out and allowed the tax credits. These scholarships were not to religious schools but to students whose parents chose to use the money to send the to religious schools.
This is going to affect a lot of programs in more than a dozen states.

SCOTUS ruled if you add ".com" to a common term, you can trademark it.

I'm not sure I understand... but I'll probably see an article soon (when I get some time).

If I'm understanding you correctly, the parents were giving their own kids scholarships, i.e., paying for their kids' education and calling it scholarships? Is that what was going on? What moist people call "paying the kids' tuition"?

As long as this is OK for both religions and non-religious schools, I have no problem with it. (I've always thought there should be partial or total tax breaks for paying college tuition.)

No. The parents were deciding which schools their children would attend and paying the money from the scholarships to those schools. The donors were just giving money for scholarships to children who would be attending private schools. They didn't choose which schools got the money.

So donor gives money for scholarship -> parent chooses school -> money goes to school, some of which were religious schools -> donor gets tax credit for donation.

I think that sounds right... sorting it out.

The two articles I've seen have didn't mention anything about private donations. They explained it like this: State grants that are allowed to go to private schools had been blocked (historically) from going to religious private schools under Montana's constitution (I think under the premise that division of church and state required that state-originated funds not go to religious institutions). However, the Supreme Court ruled that depriving only religious schools of access to the funds was an unconstitutional bias against religious institutions.

I haven't seen anything yet on the issue of donors... will keep looking as time and eyes allow this morning. (I do try to read as little as possible at the moment.)

It's quite interesting that this decision came down after Jupiter retrograded into Sagittarius - the Sagittarian themes are all over it (church, academia, and courts, for starters) - and especially as Jupiter conjoins Pluto (which was exact yesterday).

PS - I should add that justice requires the equal application of the same principle in all situations (unless there is a distinction that makes them different). Specifically, the same church-state separation that previously said state funds cannot be spent to pay for education at a religious institution is also the basis of the long-standing laws that state funds cannot be spent to pay for abortion clinics because they are against many people's religion. That is, on the school situation, one group of tax payers wouldn't want public money spent a certain way because of their religious views; on the abortion clinic situation, a different group of tax payers wouldn't want public money spent a different way because of their religious views. If the high court is now going to take an expansive view of the First Amendment - religious freedom based on no government distinction between one religion and another, or between religion and non-religion - then it has to apply to both scenarios equally IMHO.

I think the basis here was somebody was getting tax credits for donating money that went to pay for religious school. It's confusing, and I could easily be wrong about who was getting the tax credits.

I don't see this case being applied to reproductive rights, but I'd be pleased if it were. Maybe grants that pay for pills or devices?

Apparently the 3 Gorges Dam is allready at full capacity and it just the beginning of the rainy season.

Intense flooding is going on now.
