Russian court rejects Brittney Griner's appeal of nine-year prison sentence for drug possession

The Moscow Regional Court ruled Tuesday to uphold the sentence. In the ruling the court stated, however, that the time Griner will have to serve in prison will be recalculated with her time in pre-trial detention taken into account. One day in pre-trial detention will be counted as 1.5 days in prison, so the basketball player will have to serve around eight years in prison.

Griner took part in the hearing via video call from a penal colony outside Moscow where she is imprisoned.

Yeah, Adam Curtis' works all are quite epic, drawing from the BBC's camera vaults recorded over decades and putting them together into a collage of his own making. They remain a human legacy of documenting societal and political changes during our life-times.

I've become sort of a fan, since his latter work, "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" (2021)...

No idea where you're coming from with bisquits and head. Heads are needed, and they tend to die in numbers, lately. Was just trying to be friendly with the pal from Fla, not trying to chase anyone away. Well, that might have gone wrong. *blush*
 
Ah. Oh that was just me riffing. No worries. The context was lost on me. My bad. Bud and hon sounded somewhat condescending and I know miamizsun to be thoughtful and non-confrontational so I thought something might be lost in translation and it was except I was the one lost to the point. lol. I didn't mean to interrupt your conversation. carry on...{#Good-vibes}

The first leaks of Adam Curtis' new work "Russia 1985-99: TraumaZone" are out, leaving one heart-broken, and with some serious questions:
Part 1
Part 2
...
Did we really need to be afraid of them?

It's obvious at this point that Putin cannot win this war. His army has been destroyed/collapsed and he's attempting to replace it with conscripts and stored equipment that's 50 years old. His air force is apparently utterly ineffectual, and he has lost the support of the populace. He's a megalomaniac, so he presses on. I seriously hope there is enough actual intelligence among the upper-echelon military to keep him from using nuclear weapons.
