My name is carl azuz and todays. First story takes us to americas most populated state, where a controversial new law is set to take effect in the months ahead. Californias government will require students to get a coronavirus vaccine in order to attend school. This will apply to millions of students from kindergarten through 12th grade at public and private schools in california, but it wont take effect until one of the vaccines is fully approved for younger people by the u.s food and drug administration. Currently, a vaccine made by the companies, pfizer and biontech is approved for people ages, 16 and older, but it has not been fully approved for younger americans. People ages 12 through 15, can get one under an emergency use. Authorization californias government expects the fda will eventually approve coveted vaccines for kids. So it says its vaccine mandates will follow that and likely take effect in january or july. It will apply to students who attend school in person, but there will be online schools, home school and independent study options for unvaccinated students. According to the los angeles times, parents will be able to refuse the vaccine for their children on the grounds of personal beliefs, but californias government might overturn that option in the future. The states governor says the school mandate will speed up efforts to overcome the covid pandemic, but health officials say its possible for the delta variant of coronavirus to spread among vaccinated people. Lawsuits against the mandate are expected, while some parents have said they support the idea and think itll keep kids safer at school.
Others have said the vaccine needs to be a personal medical decision, not a requirement theyre concerned about the short and long term effects of the vaccine on young people who have a much higher survival rate for kovid than older people. If and when the school mandates take effect, theyll make california the first state in the nation to have them. For years, china has been the worlds largest manufacturer, in fact, its known as the worlds factory, because chinas output accounts for more than 28 percent of global manufacturing. But the soaring cost of energy is triggering several problems for the asian country, including its ability to make goods the shortages became widespread in june and have only gotten worse since then, the worlds biggest energy consumer is running out of power. Chinas energy crunch is triggering blackouts forcing factories to cut production, overturning peoples daily lives and threatening to slow the worlds. Second largest economy, social media users have posted images of cities, gone, dark, severe traffic jams caused by traffic lights, that stopped working shops forced to close early or resorting to candlelight to stay open. A mother with two young kids trapped in an elevator for 45 minutes. After a sudden power outage, it was completely dark. I can see nothing because the power is cut from everything. Only when vehicles drove past you could see lights on the power cuts have rippled across northeastern china and parts of the south, the cause of it all.
A perfect storm of factors demand for chinese goods is surging, as the global economy emerges from the pandemic, increasing use of chinas electricity, hungry factories, thats sending energy prices skyrocketing, but since electricity prices are regulated in china, some power companies are losing money and hesitant to boost Production at the same time, china is trying to meet its ambitious climate goals to bring carbon emissions to a peak before 2030 and net zero by 2060. So local officials are rationing power to meet annual targets before the year end power outages, arent new to china, but this one is especially severe for most provinces in china. When there is a shortage of power, they ration for industries first, so it doesnt affect residential uses. But um in the northeast because it has reached to us uh quite a significant shortage. It is now even rationing for residential uses, and that is quite significant because it could lead to a lot of social discontent and residents are taking to social media to complain. One user posted there is no gas dont, we need to cook and eat. I have been ordering takeout for two days. Another wrote people from northeast china have to light candles in the middle of the night. This is not north korea im speechless this person. Writing many communities have been locked down due to the pandemic if there is no water or electricity thats so unbearable. The power rationing could create new headaches for global supply chains, with several apple and tesla suppliers suspending production and be further interruptions to supplies of different things.
Whether it be toys for christmas or metals and silica for advanced materials and advanced equipment, but the power supply challenges arent unique to china, it is partly a problem of managing the low carbon energy transition at a time when the economy is picking up after the pandemic. I think were going to see the same sort of challenges in other parts of the world. Chinas energy crisis is a sign of what the world is reckoning with in its bumpy transition to clean energy, selena, wang, cnn tokyo, ten second trivia, which of these u.s founding fathers became the nations first chief justice, john adams, john hancock, john jay, or john marshall. In 1789, president george washington nominated john jay to become americas. First chief justice, Music and the senate confirmed jay to that position. Just two days later, these days, that process usually takes months. No matter whos, president, once a justice is confirmed, he or she serves on the high court during what the constitution calls good behavior, which can mean for life and those on the supreme court.
