See The Most Hated States In America. Number 1 Is Not A Surprise

Can you guess what #1 is? Oh yes you can.
If your state ranks high on the list you have to move away immediately… just kidding this list doesn’t really mean anything, but it’s fun to look at.
How much do you love your home state?

How much do you hate other states? For majority of us, it’s something we probably don’t think about that often, but the folks at BestLife?

Well, they are on top of it, and they have crunched the numbers to come up with a ranking of the 50 U.S. states based on how much they are hated.

The “Hatred Index” that BestLife came up with is based on a number of factors, including surveys where residents expressed how much (or little) pride they had in their state, how many people are moving into or out of the state, and a poll where people picked which state they hate the most, whether it was their own home state or a different one.

Okay, so it is not the most scientific collection of metrics in the world, but it is something, and using all that data the website ranked all the states to determine which are the most hated and which are the least hated.

Let is begin with the positive side, because it’s been a rough year and we could all use a bit more positivity these days. Here are the least hated states, according to the data:

Idaho
Utah
Washington
Nevada
Arizona
Colorado
Oregon
South Dakota
Montana
Wyoming

Okay, so a lot of the states with lower population figures seem to be ranked pretty highly in terms of likeability.

That makes sense, more especially when you see that a lot of these states did not rank on the poll of which states other people hate the most.

I mean, what is there to hate about Wyoming? Big open spaces?

On the other hand, the most hated states tend to have higher populations, and people seem to have stronger opinions about them.

We have no other way of knowing why people seem to hate the following states so much, but sports teams, politics, and other factors likely play large factors.

Listed below are the most-hated states, according to the data:

New Jersey
Texas
California
Oklahoma
Florida
Michigan
Kentucky
Indiana
Alabama
Kansas

Okay so to the top spot being taken by New Jersey isn’t surprising in the least. I don’t say that because New Jersey is a state that I hate — I don’t really have an opinion of it one way or another if I’m being honest — but New Jersey tends to be the butt of many jokes, and it’s probably a fallback for a lot of people who couldn’t think of an answer that meant anything to them personally.

You can check out the rest of the list to see where your state ranks if you don’t see it on either of these lists, but wherever your state ranks, don’t take it too rough.

Pet cat appears to ‘cry’ into security camera after being left at home alone during holiday – ghanapublisher.com

A pet cat has gone viral in China after appearing to cry into a security camera while being left at home alone during a holiday.

The two-year-old British Shorthair, Fu Fu, supposedly wept while hearing his owner calling his name through the home monitor, his owner said.

The pet keeper, Ms Meng, said she was checking on the feline via a surveillance app on her phone when she saw the ‘heart-breaking’ scene.

Security footage shows Fu Fu staring into the camera with tears in his eyes at home in China

The CCTV clip was filmed on the night of February 8 in eastern China’s Xuzhou after Ms Meng had gone to her parents’ home in a nearby town to celebrate the Lunar New Year.

The 17-second video, which has received more than 8million ‘likes’, propelled Fu Fu into social media stardom, leading him to be known as the ‘left-behind cat’.

Ms Meng told MailOnline she had decided not to bring Fu Fu out of fear that he could not get used to her parents’ home.

She described Fu Fu as shy and clingy, adding that the pet loves spending time with her.

To ensure Fu Fu’s well-being, Ms Meng had arranged enough food and water for him before her trip and would watch surveillance footage regularly.

The trending video shows Fu Fu purring with tears in his eyes, after Ms Meng called his name ‘Fu Fu’ through the monitor.

Ms Meng can be heard saying in the clip ‘do you miss me’ and ‘I will come back in a few days’.

As Ms Meng’s voice plays, Fu Fu turns around to look at the door before turning back to touch the camera with his paw.

‘I felt heartbroken when I saw this,’ Ms Meng confessed. She said that she eventually cut her trip short to return home to Fu Fu.

‘I had planned to stay at my parents’ home for a week, but we all returned to Xuzhou early,’ she noted.

A follow-up video shared by Ms Meng on Douyin, the Chinese version of TikTok, shows Fu Fu dashing towards Ms Meng excitedly after she got home four days later.

Weepy eyes in cats can be signs of illnesses, such as eye infections or blocked tear ducts. But Ms Meng insisted that Fu Fu was perfectly healthy. She claimed that Fu Fu often had tears in his eyes when he was anxious or hungry.

Fu Fu’s ‘crying’ video has attracted more than 250,000 comments on Douyin as web users flocked to show their affection for the cat.

One fan wrote: ‘My heart melted when I saw Fu Fu’s eyes.’

Another viewer said: ‘I feel so sorry for him.’

A third person joked: ‘He didn’t miss you. He missed his fish.’

Billionaire Elon Musk unfollows America President Joe Biden on Twitter – ghanapublisher.com

Elon Musk says he pitched the Biden administration on instituting a carbon tax as a way to encourage a faster shift to renewable energy, but he was told the idea was essentially “too politically difficult.”

In an interview by Rogan, he asked Musk whether a new technological breakthrough is needed to increase the adoption of battery-powered vehicles. Musk argued the bigger issue is that “a hell of a lot of batteries [are] needed” in order to shift away from fossil fuels and toward renewable energy. The best way to encourage that shift, in Musk’s view, is to “put a price on carbon.”

“My top recommendation honestly would be just to have a carbon tax,” Musk said. “Because we’re not paying for the CO2 capacity of the oceans and atmosphere, we have what in economics is called an unpriced externality. The market is unable to respond to an unpriced externality. If we just put a price on it, the market will react in a sensible way.”

Musk has even previously called for a “revolt” against the fossil fuel industry while making the case for a carbon tax, and he accused big oil companies of conspiring against Tesla. But he said on Rogan’s podcast that he is “not in favor of demonizing the oil and gas industry” because it would upset the people working in it, and also stopping its operations completely would mean everyone would “die of starvation, basically.”

“We’re gonna need to burn fossil fuels for a long time. The question is just at what rate do we move to a sustainable energy future?” he said.

In a recent interview granted by Donald Trump at CNBC with Joe Kernen at the World Economic Forum, former United States President Donald Trump said enough nice things about billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk.

“You have to give him credit. I spoke to him very recently, and he’s also doing the rockets,” Trump told Kernen. “He likes rockets. And he does good at rockets, too, by the way. I never saw where the engines come down with no wings, no anything, and they’re landing. I said, ‘I’ve never seen that before.’” Trump also, bafflingly, pledged to defend Musk against unnamed enemies.

The current administration of the united states of America led by Joe Biden have gone logger heads with Elon on his advocates for switching from fossil fuels cars to battery cars.

A very big renowned tech company in the Uinted States, @BigtechAlert has indicated this morning that, the world’s 2nd billionaire Elon Musk has unfollowed the Current president of America Joe Biden on the White House’s main twitter account @POTUS which has president Biden’s name on the barfront.

Below is how the announcement was made on twitter.

Iraq Court Orders Trump’s Arrest Over Drone Strike On Iran General

A Baghdad court has issued a warrant for the arrest of US President Donald Trump as part of its investigation into the killing of a top Iraqi paramilitary commander.

Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy head of Iraq’s largely pro-Iran Hashed al-Shaabi paramilitary network, died in the same US drone strike that killed storied Iranian general Qasem Soleimani at Baghdad airport on January 3 last year.

The strike on their motorcade was ordered by Trump, who later crowed that it had taken out “two (men) for the price of one”.

The UN special rapporteur for extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, Agnes Callamard, has described the twin killings as “arbitrary” and “illegal”.

Iran already issued a warrant for Trump’s arrest in June, and asked Interpol to relay it as a so-called red notice to other police forces around the world, a request that has so far gone unmet.

The court for east Baghdad issued the warrant for Trump’s arrest under Article 406 of the penal code, which provides for the death penalty in all cases of premeditated murder, the judiciary said.

The court said the preliminary inquiry had been completed but “investigations are continuing in order to unmask the other culprits in this crime, be they Iraqis or foreigners.”

In the run-up to Sunday’s anniversary of the twin killings, pro-Iran factions stepped up their rhetoric against Washington and Iraqi officials deemed to have colluded with it.
