Leif Gram: Mr. Fix

Что там в школах? -- The principal of a Texas high school decided to remove restroom doors in order to get a grip on drug use and other "significant behavioral events" that have already occurred this year, according to a report. Since the doors have been removed, there have been no reported behavioral issues.
"My number one priority is safety," she said in the letter, according to the report. "Removing the doors is one of many strategies we are planning or implementing to keep our campus a safe learning environment."

Что там в АМА? -- Dr. Mary Bowden of the Houston Methodist Hospital posted a series of tweets praising the antiparasitic drug ivermectin as a COVID-19 treatment. She also called vaccine mandates "wrong." The Houston Methodist Hospital has suspended the privileges of Dr. Mary Bowden.
Надо верить докторам!

Поддерживаю -- ЗакС попросил Смольный ограничить время и место работы воздуходувок.

Cf.: Саша вышел на улицу и медленно побрел к сияющему веселыми электрическими огнями в окнах зданию Госплана. Впереди включилась разрезалка пополам - по тому болезненному скрипу, с которым она работала, и по большим щелям между гнутыми зубьями Саша догадался, что она не из его игры, а просто - обычная советская разрезалка пополам, плохая и старая, то ли забытая кем-то на улице, то ли стоящая на своем положенном месте.

electrе -- Phantom braking is a term used to describe when an advanced driver assist system (ADAS) or a self-driving system applies the brakes for no good reason.
"Upon accepting delivery at the end of May we have accumulated 9,000 miles on the car and have a had horrible experiences with the traffic aware cruise control slamming on the brakes for no apparent reason with nothing ahead or passing cars. Behavior can be 5-10 mph slowdowns or in some cases FULL brake pressure which puts us in danger of being rear ended. Multiple times we have been close to rear-ended.”
Поэтому надо внимательно следить за дорогой и быть готовым перехватить управление как раз перед тем, как Тесла неожиданно ударит по тормозам!

East Bay Times/OROVILLE — As a constitutional republic the city of Oroville will not enforce “any executive orders issued by the state of California or by the United States federal government that are overreaching or clearly violate our constitutionally protected rights.”
“We stand by and believe in our constitution, our republic and we believe that many times others in state and federal government are exceeding their authority across the board in everything we do. Mandates eliminate personal right of choice – to get vaccinated or not, to vaccinate your kids or not — and violate basic constitutional choice we all have,” said Pittman.
“This declaration states that we are refusing to blindly give direction to our officers to enforce every mandate that gets passed down. Every council member and officer have sworn oaths to defend both the U.S. and state constitutions which limit the power of government and protect the freedoms of the people. We can’t eliminate these mandates locally but we are in charge of how our local officers enforce them,” Thomson said.
