The problem of single stage to orbit remains. They need to advance rocket technology beyond bell housings.
Moveable thrusters could be an interim solution for the large rockets but for the small rockets something else needs a solution.
Perhaps they could design a thruster that increases capacity with altitude. Sure it would be a bit more complicated than stages...but once it is complete we would have a variable altitude thruster.

Holland Heats Up, Belgium Burns As French Yellow Vest Protests Spread Across Europe by magnora7 in WorldNews

Sorry but that site is the internet version of a virus. 22 pages of links in Umatrix...it's worse than MMORPG.com
As protests continue to rage in France, discontent is festering elsewhere in Europe at the same time. What began as a routine protest deep in Paris has swelled to over a hundred thousand people and approximately five locations throughout the country. Anger over yet another eco-fascist “gas tax” seems to have been the straw that finally broke the camel’s back.
This, of course, was combined with other problems too: constant foreign military adventures, falling wages, rising costs of living, rising costs of healthcare, privatization of essential services, cultural disruption as a result of heavy migration, and growing unemployment as a result of Free Trade globalist policies.
France is now facing the possibility of martial law or greater unrest and violence.
It’s not just France dealing with Yellow Vest protests.
And the discontent being seen in France is also being felt elsewhere in Europe – most notably Belgium and the Netherlands. Although receiving much less media attention, the “yellow vests” have taken to the street in Belgium over many of the same concerns as their counterparts in France.
But while the French version of the protests was set off by the proposed increase of fuel taxes and ballooned into a movement addressing greater issues, there was no straw to place on the camel’s back in Belgium. There were no new fuel taxes announced or any other new policy that was receiving coverage in the media or causing discontent with Belgians at the time. The Belgian government is increasing the cost of fuel but the policy is not a new one. Belgians already pay the highest state taxes for fuel in Europe.
Interestingly enough, it seems that the “final straw” for Belgian was imported from France.
For all intents and purposes, it appears that the Belgian and Dutch protests are the reverberating waves of discontent that comes with such an “integrated” society in Europe whereas the indignities suffered by the populations in one Sovietized EU “democracy” are grievously felt in another Sovietized EU “democracy.”
It is also reminiscent of the French Revolution when British oligarchs were constantly on guard for signs of discontent with the dreadful conditions in that country, lest the same thing should take place in England.
So Why Are The Protests Taking Place In Belgium?
For the most part, the protests in Belgium are inspired by the same situation in France, i.e.; falling wages, rising costs of living, rising costs of healthcare, privatization of essential services, cultural disruption as a result of heavy migration, and growing unemployment as a result of Free Trade globalist policies.
France 24 summed up a number of Belgian economic grievances when it writes,
The demonstrations in both countries come from the same sense of struggling to make ends meet every month.
It began, in both countries, with the government increasing the cost of fuel. Belgians, for instance, pay the highest state taxes on diesel in Europe. The French government backed down on the proposed fuel tax increase, and Belgian ministers did the same, announcing the fuel prices would not be index-linked from 2019. But in both countries, the protests have continued.
According to Eurostat, the European Union’s statistical body, tax-to-GDP ratio rose across Europe in 2017. France tops the list, with tax revenue accounting for 48.4% of GDP, and Belgium follows close behind with a tax-to-GDP ratio of 47.3%.
Economist Philippe Defeyt told Belgian media RTBF that while the cost of living has increased in Belgium, so too has the average income – apart from the lowest-earners, who have been squeezed even tighter.
A retired man told RTBF that he receives a pension of €1,350 a month. “I get it on the 23rd of the month. It’s now the 8th and after I’ve paid insurance, rent, energy bills – which cost €150 – I only have €200 left for living expenses,” he said.
A Facebook group for Yellow Vests in Belgium lays out some of their demands to the government: lowering the retirement age, decreasing fuel excise duties, decreasing the cost of electricity and water, the choice of referendums at all levels of legislative decision-making, increasing pensions, improving public services and increasing purchasing power. The average price of electricity has risen €10 in the past year. Protesters describe a general “ras-le-bol fiscal”, or financial despair.
It’s a similar story in Belgium: in Brussels, salaries are €300 higher than the average salary in the rest of the country. With a capital that also doubles as the capital of Europe, Belgian citizens are frustrated by what they see as their lawmakers’ inability to solve problems closer to home.
One protester gestured to the European institutional buildings behind him while talking to a NBC Euronews reporter. “There, in ‘Europe’, they’re having fun, they’re laughing,” he said. “The people who make the laws are the ones driving us further into the ground. We have empty pockets. We shouldn’t be called the ‘yellow vests’, but the ‘empty pockets’.”
The protests in Belgium have been largely peaceful, but there have been some violent clashes as well. On December 8, police in Brussels blockaded a zone which houses the European Commission and European Council which essentially blocked in the protesters. When a group of protesters attempted to break through the barricade, there were clashes between them and the police. Around 400 people were arrested at the protest with three police being injured.
Police fired tear gas and water cannons at the protesters calling for Prime Minister Charles Michel’s resignation. Some protesters threw paving stones, fireworks, flares, road signs, and other objects at police.
There seems to be people deliberately escalating the violence.
As was the case in France, there seemed to be the presence of anarchist wreckers whose only purpose was to fight with the police. Many of the Yellow Vest protesters denounced the “casseurs,” (translated “breakers”) and dissociated themselves from the violence.
It should be noted that while anarchists typically disrupt and discredit any protest they involve themselves in, it has been demonstrated in the United States that intelligence agencies and police will send in agents disguised as anarchists to do just that. One such instance was seen during the infamous WTO protests in Seattle in 1999.
It should also be mentioned that Belgium has been undergoing a quiet debate as to its future. As Wouter Verschelden writes for Politico, Belgium is debating which “club” it wants to belong to – Macron or Orban.
The latter refers to Viktor Orban, the Prime Minister of Hungary. Orban is bucking the Soviet-style EU system, George Soros’ influence over media, society, and academia, unfettered immigration, and radical leftist manipulation of culture. While Orban has made many moves that are concerning in terms of the rights of individuals, he has also kept his country free of the social upheaval and violence accompanied by hordes of immigrants and has done what he can to prevent Soros-funded organizations from disrupting the country and the culture any further than they already have.
When compared to a country like France that also violates human rights on an hourly basis while also suffering under terrorist attacks, racial and religious violence against native French people, and a stagnant economy, many Europeans are wishing their country had taken the nationalist track, not the internationalist one.
Protests in The Netherlands
There have been Yellow Vest protests in the Netherlands as well though the protests have drawn much smaller crowds and there have been no reports of violence.
In stark contrast to French President Macron, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte has expressed sympathy for the protests, indicating that there will be “more money to spend” for the Dutch people and acknowledging the problems they are facing. Notably, however, there hasn’t been any explanation of how they will have more money to spend or what the Dutch government is going to do in order to ensure it.
At this point, the Netherlands protests seem to be more of acknowledgment of the Dutch crisis moreso than a mass movement against it.
Where are the European protests headed?
While no one knows just where the French and now, apparently, European protests are heading, there is clearly the sense on the part of the protesters and ordinary Europeans that they are losing their countries. They’re losing it to a globalist agenda whether it be Free Trade, immigration, eco-fascism, high taxation, low wages, or a confluence of all and more of those issues.

Absolutely. Teflon shouldn't be used in any microwave applications where heat control isn't possible.
They should have stuck with only the old fashioned burner heated aluminium ball stuff. Those microwave packet thingys are terrible.
I agree. I am only coming from the perspective of consuming actively harmful particles from teflon. I only use wooden, plastic, or melamine utensils on my pans. I cringe, and go off the handle when I see people scraping it with metal. At any rate if teflon is intact it's pretty much indestructable by the human body. That's why burning it is not good. It starts to break down.
Too much popcorn can also cause stomach problems.
Teflon really isn't the enemy unless it is overheated. It melts at 620 degrees but starts to deteriorate ~500 degrees.
If you use your Teflon pans for low heat applications only it is perfectly safe. Otherwise it could kill birds..and as I discovered all your carefully protected cellar spiders.
Over a million people DIE from chemotherapy every year, but only 750,000 pass away from cancer – what’s WRONG with this picture? by SundogsPlace in SundogsPlace
It really depends on the origin of the cancer. If it is spontaneous then Chemo has a pretty good chance of success because it is not all that varied.
If it is due to metabolic disorder, or from stem cells then the chance of success is far lower because the mutation rate, and cancer diversity is a lot higher. Kinda like the difference between Staff and MRSA.
