“We are following the situation with concern, but I don’t think it’s going to come to that [an armed confrontation],” Ambassador Gisela Padovan, secretary for Latin America and the Caribbean at the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, told Reuters Tuesday, adding that she trusted Brazilian diplomacy and that of the rest of the neighboring countries will manage to “deflate the process.”
Let's hope, but this doesn't sound promising. If the numbers on Wikipedia are anything to go by, Guyana is basically defenceless against Venezuela. And Maduro chose a good time to do this, with the World's democracies too weary from the war in Ukraine to get involved in another one.

I've never actually seen The Hunchback of Notre Dame. I really should get around to it.

Not sure if I'll watch it. I still haven't watched Last of Us. It sounds promising though.
I think geothermal has a lot of growth potential, but like other types of renewable/green energy, it's geographically limited.
And it sees geothermal as a key part of the future electricity mix that can fill in whenever wind and solar energy wane.
Huh. Yeah, I guess these power plants can be quickly activated and deactivated, and can be used as peaking power plants. But they would also make for the perfect baseload power plants, since the heat from the ground is more or less constant, and that's really all they need when the water is in a closed loop.
His party won about a quarter of the seats, becoming the largest party in parliament. I guess that makes him the "winner" of the election, but it does not guarantee him the title of prime minister, or even part in the governing coalition.
That said; maybe it is time to let him and his party have a chance at running the country. Voters flock to populist parties because they claim they can solve complex problems, but of course; they can't. And if voters see that they can't, they may leave them and never come back.
“I understand very well that parties do not want to be in a government with a party that wants unconstitutional measures,”
That is such a fascinating statement to me, admitting that the politics he wants to implement are unconstitutional, and thus can't actually be implemented without first a constitution reform.
Going to do a quick experiment.
I almost cried. Sitting almost alone at the office reading this while waiting for a Windows update to complete, and I almost cried.

It's really something.
Say hello to the new president of Argentina everyone.
US politics is a circus like always, but at least they managed to avoid a government shutdown for the next couple of months.
Drilling for lithium. Huh. Who knew.
It's fascinating to me how open they are about their business in this article. This can't make them look good to their audience, can it? It shows how mass-produced and hyper-commercialised it all is.
