    Earlier this fall, a developer submitted plans for 4,500 apartments in Santa Monica — more new housing than the pricey, beachfront city has built in all of the previous decade. And because of a little-used provision in state law that kicks in when cities fail to produce a housing plan to accommodate projected population growth, Santa Monica officials may be powerless to stop the construction. The tactic now could be deployed by developers in more than 100 Southern California cities that are out of compliance with the state requirements. According to experts, it is most likely to be used in wealthier areas with little housing production and high potential profits. The push for growth comes as Gov. Gavin Newsom and state legislators in recent years have passed laws eroding local controls over home-building, arguing that local resistance is a key reason behind California’s unprecedented housing shortage and high cost of living. In response, developers are becoming increasingly willing to challenge city officials. In Redondo Beach, a power plant owner has submitted plans for more than 2,200 housing units using...
    Loaded liberals are forking over millions of dollars for 'golden passports' because they are scared of a Trump-led civil war in 2024, immigration lawyers have revealed. The wealthy wokes are spending huge sums to bag visas that allow them escape to countries like Austria, Turkey, Jordan and the Caribbean, according to attorneys running the processes.  Consultants say they've seen a massive spike in interest for citizenships for second countries over the last few years. Many Americans, they say, are petrified by the thought of another Trump administration, while others cited the Roe v. Wade ruling and the 2008 financial crash that rocked the US. The lawyers refused to name names, but a sea of celebrities have hinted at fleeing abroad, including Chelsea Handler, Barbra Streisand and Amy Schumer. The era of Donald Trump prompted many celebrities of means to flee the U.S. Despite uni-party control in Washington, D.C. Democrats remain fixated on finding back up plans to American life and now they can as the 'golden passport' market explodes Innsbruck, Austria, where a 'golden passport' fetches as much as $10 million dollars...

Jerry Nadler and Carolyn Maloney, two of the party's most powerful House lawmakers, in a primary race that is pitting the incumbents against each other in the city's newly redrawn 12th district. The lawmakers, longtime colleagues in the House, now have to fight each other to save their seats after a court ordered New York's 12th congressional district to be redrawn. It now encompasses much of Nadler's old district on the Upper West Side and Maloney's on the Upper East Side. Both are hosting fundraisers ahead of the Aug. 23 primary, forcing some of the wealthiest donors in the Big Apple, many...

    Anti-vaccination protesters holding signs at a rally against Covid-19 vaccine mandates Last week, the United States fell to last place in vaccination among G-7 nations. Until spring, the U.S. had been one of the leaders in vaccination rate, but as Democrats got vaccinated and vaccine hostility set in among 40% of Republicans, the increase in vaccinations in America slowed to a crawl. Even Japan, which had a vaccination rate of just 1% in May, and which has a high level of anti-vaccination sentiment going back decades, has moved ahead of the U.S. where, despite hopes that the delta wave might finally wake Republicans willingness to engage in public health has barely moved. As a direct result of that low vaccination rate, the delta wave has been higher and more prolonged in the United States than in most other nations. And when it comes to COVID-19 deaths, American isn’t last. It’s first. In fact, not only are people dying in the U.S. at a rate higher than that in other wealthy nations, the number of deaths is exceeding all other G-7 nations combined....
    PINELLAS PARK (CBSMiami) – Gov. Ron DeSantis visited Pinellas Park Thursday where he addressed the delay in vaccine arrival to Florida due to the winter storm that’s taken hold of much of the country. The governor specifically referenced the tens of thousands of Moderna vaccines currently sitting in a FedEx warehouse as a result of the bad weather. RELATED: Boil Water Order Lifted For Parts Of NE Broward “The Moderna still has not shipped for this week. So, normally, those Moderna would be done today, but because of the storm we’re seeing throughout the country, it’s basically sitting in the FedEx warehouse,” he said. “I don’t even think they’re going to be able to get into because of everything. But that’s gonna happen, whether it’s the weekend, tomorrow or Sunday.” Gov. DeSantis said the doses will be shipped out and distributed in the coming days once major roadways are safe to travel. During his visit, the governor also announced the opening of a new pop-up vaccination site. It will be there for three days, offering 3,000 shots to seniors 65...
    Billionaire Bill Gates has called on the U.S. and other wealthy countries to give up eating beef entirely and switch to synthetic alternatives due to climate change.  'I don’t think the poorest 80 countries will be eating synthetic meat. I do think all rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef,' Gates the MIT Technology Review in an interview on Monday. 'You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they’re going to make it taste even better over time. Eventually, that green premium is modest enough that you can sort of change the people or use regulation to totally shift the demand,' Gates mused. The Microsoft founder, 65, was promoting his new book, How To Avoid A Climate Disaster, which presents a range of dramatic proposals that Gates says are needed to prevent global calamity.

    Technology's elite sees the world in different light to other ultra-wealthy business leaders outside the tech industry, according to a new study.  German and US researchers investigated the worldviews of the 100 richest people in the tech world, as listed by Forbes. Included were leaders of 'the big nine' – Amazon, Google, Facebook, Tencent, Baidu, Alibaba, Microsoft, IBM and Apple – whose founders are some of the richest people on the planet.  The research, which involved analysing the language used in the tweets of prominent figures in tech, revealed that they tend to deny any links between democracy and money. Tech's elite also has a more 'meritocratic' worldview – whereby people's success or power is related to their abilities – compared with the general US Twitter-using population.   The tech elite share distinct views setting them apart from other segments of the world's elite, according to the study, which took into account the world's richest tech leaders.

    Residents and health officials on wealthy Martha's Vineyard have expressed their anger and disappointment after a wedding held on the island earlier this month became a COVID-19 superspreader event.  At least nine people, the majority of whom worked at the wedding, have tested positive for coronavirus after the gathering, health officials confirmed Wednesday.  They believe that wedding attendees broke the state's protocols by failing to quarantine for 14 days once they arrived to the state, as visitors to Massachusetts are required to do.  'Of the 9 cases linked to the event, 7 were reported on Martha's Vineyard and two reported in out-of-state wedding guests who were diagnosed after leaving the Island,' Tisbury health agent Maura Valley told the Vineyard Gazette.   'Of the seven cases we are following on the Island, two have completed their isolation and have been released and five are currently being followed by public health.'  At least nine people have tested positive for coronavirus after a wedding in Martha's Vineyard over Columbus Day weekend, angering locals as the island's first large outbreak Among the nine infected, only...
    American women are more likely to not properly take their medications - or take them at all - compared to women in other countries, a new study suggests. Researchers found that women in the US were almost twice as likely to skip their prescriptions compared to Canadian women and three times more likely than Australian women. What's more, 25 percent of younger women said they couldn't adhere to their medication schedules due to the cost.   The team, from Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health in New York City, says this is not only likely because women take more prescriptions than men do but, if it continues, it could create future sex-related disparities. A new study has found one in four US women from ages 18 to 64 said they weren't taking their prescriptions due to cost compared to one in seven men in that age bracket (file image) For the study, published in Health Affairs, the team looked cost-related non-adherence among younger women (ages 18 to 64) and older women (ages 65 or older) in 11 high-income countries.

    Certain stories will receive a news article no matter how stale and overdone they are. Groups of rich people asking to have their taxes raised is one such story. This time, it’s a group of 80 millionaires calling themselves “Millionaires for Humanity” begging governments to “Tax us. Tax us. Tax us” in order to combat the coronavirus. Every time wealthy Americans beg to be taxed higher, it’s presented as a selfless act, an offering-up of their own money for the public good. But that’s not really what it is — after all, if individuals wanted to pay more in taxes, they are welcome to do so. The IRS has accepted gifts and donations from private citizens since 1843. That none of these millionaires report that they’ve taken advantage of this function proves that they, too, don’t really think the federal government is the best steward of their dollars. Instead, it’s a request to tax other wealthy people — there were about 18.6 million millionaires in the United States in 2019. Then again, an article entitled “0.0004 Percent of Millionaires Want...
