Surprising US Intelligence, China Tested a Hypersonic Missile

"China tested a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile in August," reports Reuters, "showing a capability that caught U.S. intelligence by surprise, the Financial Times reported, citing five unnamed sources." AFP explains what's uniquely threatening about hypersonic missiles: Ballistic missiles fly high into space in an arc to reach their target, while a hypersonic flies on a trajectory low in the atmosphere, potentially reaching a target more quickly. Crucially, a hypersonic missile is maneuverab...

Metals Turns 10

There are hit songs, and then there are songs that seem to permeate every fibre of popular culture, like cigarette smoke on a denim jacket. Feist’s “1234” was such a song. The numbers don’t lie: a Top 10 single in the US, Canada, and the UK, “1234” propelled sales of the Canadian singer’s 2007 album, The Reminder, past the 2 million mark. But such metrics don’t tell the full story of the song’s sheer ubiquity and its grade-schoolers-to-grandmas cross-generational appeal.

Covid-19 Diary : Thursday 5 August, 2021

As you can see, for all of June and most of July, the answer was triu...
