"In the not-too-far future, rule by debt-based currency will be seen as devoid of any legitimacy, just as today we see as devoid of legitimacy the concepts of rule by divine right and rule by chattel ownership of ones body." -- Michael Rivero

Tyson Foods, Inc., is teaming up with Gatik AI, Inc., in a multi-year collaboration to deploy autonomous, "self-driving" refrigerated box trucks to bolster Tyson routes in Northwest Arkansas. Operating 18 hours a day, trucks will deliver Tyson, Jimmy Dean and BallPark products, among others, to the company’s distribution and storage facilities in the Rogers and Springdale, Ark., areas.

"The deployment will introduce Gatik trucks equipped with commercial-grade autonomous technology to the Tyson supply chain, operating on predetermined short-haul, repeated routes to support fast and efficient product flow from plant to storage facilities," Tyson said in a release. "In a nationwide truck driver shortage, these autonomous trucks are an innovative and safe way to add resources that will allow the company to elevate drivers to other transportation positions in the Tyson business, while ensuring continuous supply chain reliability."

Beginning this week, the collaboration includes multiple trucks with the potential for expansion at other Tyson locations in the future. A safety driver will initially be present in the cab to monitor the autonomous system and take command of operating the truck if required.

This horrifying headline deserves research by somebody. If anyone does it, please share with everyone.

We can all contribute and I ask we find ways to make ourselves better informed, more resilient personally and where you are blessed, with those you love, make yourself harder to tie down and harder to kill, every day.

I’m well aware that the big picture is so overwhelming that becoming immobile in defeat is not an uncommon reaction.

But YOU are already special and you have unusual powers of discernment, or you wouldn’t be here (or other Substack doing it’s honest best to sound the alarm).

As the perpetrators get more active, I feel they’ll to take steps which breaches an unwritten code: “never activate too numerous a cohort at the same time”. Eventually, they’ll piss off / anger / begin to crush a larger fraction of people simultaneously.

In that moment, those who KNOW FOR SURE that “something is badly off”, but they don’t really know what or why, will pop up like meerkats.

Ray Dalio believes the United States is going to have a debt crisis and is closely watching the "risky" fiscal situation, CNBC reported on Thursday, citing an interview with the billionaire investor.

"How fast it transpires, I think, is going to be a function of that supply-demand issue, so I'm watching that very closely," said Dalio, founder of hedge fund Bridgewater Associates, in the interview.

The country's debt has been under the spotlight in recent months after political brinkmanship around the debt limit earlier this year brought the U.S. close to a default.

Travellers heading to Spain have received an earthquake warning after the country was struck by two quakes in the last week.

Costa Del Sol, a region that comes under the province of Malaga, has been named as a Spanish area at the highest risk of earthquakes in the coming days. This comes after northern Spain was hit by a 4.1 magnitude earthquake on Wednesday. The tremors were felt in the provinces of Soria and Zaragoza.

The National Geographic Institute (IGN) recorded the quake in the early hours. While police received a number of reports of tremors overnight, no one has been hurt in the quake.

Most people are more worried about the effects of online fraud than other crimes, such as knife attacks, burglary and sexual offences, according to a recent large-scale survey.

The poll - for criminal justice experts at Crest Advisory – also found that young people were the group most likely to be affected by online fraud, even though half of those questioned believed the elderly were most at risk.

The research was based on a nationally representative sample of over 3,000 adults across England and Wales as part of a survey conducted by data organisation WALR.

The vast majority of those polled (92%) said online fraud was a significant problem in the UK. When asked what crimes they were most worried about, 56 per cent said online fraud, compared to 43 per cent for burglary and 45 per cent for knife crime.

There is no doubt that online fraud is a major issue, but the latest data – over one-fifth of those surveyed said they had been a victim of online fraud – shows a rate which is higher than the latest crime statistics of England and Wales figures.

Oil prices flirted with one-year highs on Thursday before falling in a bout of profit-taking, which tempted investors back into stocks after several days of losses over inflation fears.

Worries that elevated energy prices will keep interest rates high in Europe and the US pushed stocks down sharply in September, dousing hopes that central bankers could start easing monetary policy.

Instead, Brent crude hit $97.69 a barrel on spot markets early Thursday, the highest price since November last year, before falling back.

The US government began Thursday to inform workers of an impending shutdown that could see millions of federal employees and military personnel temporarily sent home or working without pay, unless Congress reaches a last-ditch deal.

Without an agreement, funding for much of the federal government will expire at midnight on Saturday (0400 GMT Sunday), threatening disruptions to everything from air travel to benefit payments, and - if the shutdown endures - dealing a further blow to the precarious US economy.

The stand-off has been triggered by a small group of hardline Republicans who have pushed back against short-term funding deals while Congress tries to resolve a broader deadlock over calls for deep spending cuts.

Some federal employees have already been informed of preparations for a lapse, according to a notice seen by AFP.

Virginia's Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin has not explicitly ruled out a shocking late entry into the 2024 presidential race after he was pressed on reports that donors are desperately trying to draft him to take on Donald Trump.

CBS' Bob Costa set off a firestorm on Thursday when he said that Republican billionaire megadonor Thomas Peterffy is calling allies to assure Youngkin he would have the financial backing if he wanted to jump.

Youngkin has insisted he isn't interested in running, and is focused on the state legislature races in November.

But the troubling performance by the seven candidates who took the stage at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library has prompted financial backers to look for another option before it's too late.

Additionally, some of Youngkin's top donors will be gathered at a 'Red Vest' retreat in Virginia Beach October 17-18 with plans to 'shove' Youngkin into the 2024 race, Costa said, as they are 'growing desperate to beat Trump.'
