Today in History: Christian Spain Crushes Islam on the Battlefield
Today in history, on July 16, 1212, an epic battle — which the Islamic State still vows vengeance for — took place between Christians and Muslims, and presaged the demise of Islam in Spain, five hundred years after Muhammad’s followers first invaded and subjugated that nation beginning in 711. From the start, a small pocket of Christian resistance remained in the northwest of Spain; from this “mustard seed” the Reconquista—the Christian reconquest of Spain from Islam—spread out. Century after century, the Christians made slow advances south, until they had reclaimed nearly the northern half of Spain.

Chinese project will bounce signals off asteroids to see how dangerous they are to Earth
A leading Chinese university has begun constructing an array of more than 20 large radar antennas to track asteroids that have the potential to be hazardous to Earth. The project, named China Fuyan (or “compound eye”), is led by the Beijing Institute of Technology. The array aims to bounce signals off asteroids within 93 million miles (150 million kilometers) of Earth (about as distant as the sun) to image and track objects and determine the possibility that they could impact our planet.

Experts have refuted the claim. “The claim in this research of such large ozone changes in the tropics have not been apparent in other studies, which makes me very suspicious,” Chipperfield said. “Science should never depend on just one study, and this new work needs careful verification before it can be accepted as fact.”

Iranian media showed several ships capable of launching drones, including a submarine. For Iran, this is an accomplishment, but it also raises questions about the danger these UAVs pose.

Efraim Inbar: Israel Will Confront Iran Militarily, Deal or No Deal

Back in the USA, Biden faces a rebellion even within his own party. It was good for him that he left, bad for him that he came back.
back here in the United States he faces a rebellion even within his own party. It was good for him that he left, bad for him that he came back. Or when he comes back after groveling the Saudis for oil. The uprising began when The New York Times ran front page stories which plainly said that Biden was unfit to rule, and unfit to run again. Coming from the Times, the PR unit of the Democrat Party, this was political tsunami. The sun crashed. The earth moved.

Central Bank Digital Currencies Are Coming – What Will The Consequences Be?
Currencies are the lifeblood of trade and the economy; if a currency fails, the entire economy fails. Yet, most people rarely think about the health or buying power of the money in their pocket. People don’t research how often currencies actually falter and how common it is for inflation or stagflation to strike nations. They just assume that the money they have will be as useful tomorrow as it is today. They also assume that money will never change in a dramatic way.
