    Kansas City Star ^ | 20 Jun 2019 | By Kaitlyn Schwers
    Kansas Citians had their eyes to the sky Thursday evening, trying to get a glimpse of two mysterious white, spherical objects floating over the city. The National Weather Service of Kansas City brought attention to the matter just before 8 p.m. and posted a photo to Twitter, adding it had “no explanation” for the small orbs.
  • Trump is destroying three decades of hard work with Mexico

    Whatever the ultimate outcome of President Trump’s conflict with Mexico, one consequence is already clear. He has undermined one of the most impressive U.S. foreign policy achievements of the past three decades. Mexico used to be a reflexively anti-American country, radical and resentful toward its powerful neighbor to the north. But starting in the 1990s, through the careful efforts of leaders on both sides of the border, that changed. Until Trump came along.

    There’s a lot we don’t know about the legacy Donald Trump will leave behind. And it is, of course, hugely important what happens in the 2020 election. But one thing seems sure: Even if he’s a one-term president, Trump will have caused, directly or indirectly, the premature deaths of a large number of Americans. Some of those deaths will come at the hands of right-wing, white nationalist extremists, who are a rapidly growing threat, partly because they feel empowered by a president who calls them “very fine people.” Some will come from failures of governance, like the inadequate response to...
  • Ethiopian Airlines pilot of doomed flight didn’t take training on 737 MAX simulator: report

    thiopian Airlines was ahead of its competitors in implementing the simulator to train would-be pilots of the new plane, according to reports. Yared Getachew, co-pilot of Flight 302, had taken a course on another simulator as recently as October, but not one specifically designated for the Max 8, The New York Times reported, citing someone familiar with Ethiopian Airlines. The source told the Times that Getachew was not due for another training until after the crash. Flight 302, much like Indonesia’s Lion Air flight, which crashed in October, likely failed after its automated "anti-stall" system inadvertently pushed the plane’s nose...

    In 70 years, San Francisco as we know it could look drastically different. Gentrification, development and the other forces of urban change we fret about may be mere trifles compared to the drastic effects of climate change, including the rise of sea levels and erosion, scientists say. By 2100, rising sea levels could displace more than 480,000 people along the California coast and result in property losses upwards of $100 billion if no preventative measures are taken, according to a 2009 study by the California Climate Change Center. The study found populations in the San Francisco Bay Area are especially...

    FULL TITLE: Donald Trump, Jr. will be indicted by Mueller, former prosecutor says, and will help to ensnare his father Donald Trump Jr. will be indicted and used by special counsel Robert Mueller to ensnare his father President Donald Trump, a former prosecutor predicted. During a segment on MSNBC’s AM Joy on Saturday, Paul Butler, a former Department of Justice public corruption prosecutor, and host Joy Reid discussed the latest developments in Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between Trump’s campaign team and Moscow officials. “Does Mueller have to indict Trump in order...

    The country would face an economic hellscape if the government shutdown lasts "months or even years," as the president has suggested it might, experts tell NBC News. The doomsday scenario might be unlikely — the longest the federal government has ever shut down is 21 days, a record that will fall if the current closure lasts until Saturday — but it is chilling. "We'll be in no man's land," Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody's Analytics, told NBC News. If the worst were to happen, experts say the devastating impact would be widespread: 38 million low-income Americans lose food stamps...

    No one in the Trump administration has any credibility left By Paul Waldman Opinion writer January 8 at 2:56 PM Something curious is happening right now: The president of the United States will give a prime-time address on an urgent political controversy, and pretty much everyone acknowledges that in that address he is going to lie to the American people. The TV networks, which often have aired such speeches when the president asks, are struggling to figure out how to handle it; they seem to have decided that allowing a Democratic response, plus some post-hoc fact-checking, will fulfill their journalistic...

    Sky watchers will welcome the New Year with an exciting phenomenon: a rare Super Blood Wolf Moon that will coincide with a total lunar eclipse. Another total lunar eclipse is happening almost a year after 2018 Super Blue Moon Total Lunar Eclipse, only that it will not be a "blue" one this time around. The total lunar eclipse will be witnessed on the evening of Jan. 20 to 21 wherein the rare Super Blood Wolf Moon is going to pass through the northern half of Earth's shadow, according to meteorologist Scott Sutherland who revealed the news through The Weather Network....
  • Tourists may be making Antarctica’s penguins sick

    You can give your cat the flu. You can also pass pneumonia to a chimpanzee or tuberculosis to a bird. This kind of human-to-animal disease transmission, known as reverse zoonosis, has been seen on every continent except one: Antarctica. Now, human-linked pathogens in bird poop reveal, for the first time, that even animals on this isolated, ice-bound landmass can pick up a bug from tourists or visiting scientists. This newly identified infection route could have devastating consequences for Antarctic bird colonies, including population collapse and even extinction. “[We’re] obsessed about the potential for novel diseases to jump from wildlife to...
  • Rare lunar celestial event in January 2019 a sure sign of apocalypse, claim doomsday mongers

    The planet is going to witness a rare celestial event in January 2019, as a supermoon will coincide with a total lunar eclipse, also known as the blood moon. It should be noted that the last blood moon happened on July 27, 2018, and after the upcoming blood moon in 2019, there will not be another one until 2021. Even though the predictions made by these conspiracy theorists are going viral on the internet, there is no such term as 'Blood Moon' in the Bible. However, there are many references in the Bible where the moon turns blood red before...

    NASA sources revealing that the space rock could end up engaged in not one, but a staggering 62 different potential impact trajectories with our planet — each of them waiting to sling the asteroid toward Earth over the next 100 years. Known as asteroid 2018 LF16... The first of these unnerving opportunities arises just five years from now — occurring on August 8, 2023. Other potential impact dates in the near future fall on August 3, 2024, and on August 1, 2025.

    Professor Valentina Zharkova gave a presentation of her Climate and the Solar Magnetic Field hypothesis at the Global Warming Policy Foundation in October, 2018. The information she unveiled should shake/wake you up. Zharkova was one of the few that correctly predicted solar cycle 24 would be weaker than cycle 23 — only 2 out of 150 models predicted this. Her models have run at a 93% accuracy and her findings suggest a Super Grand Solar Minimum is on the cards beginning 2020 and running for 350-400 years.

    Close races by Beto and Gillum. Calif. expats polluting red states. Conservative voters who don't show up. 40 GOP House retirements(deadwood). Our only hope is Trump recruiting more TEAM players to take back the house seats lost. Trump is all we got. He goes down it's over. Only the cowards will be left with the Libertarians stabbing us in the back. Rats will STEAL senate seats in Fla. & Az. Doesn't look good long term for us.

    Full title: Yes, Democrats have won the House but behind Pelosi's soaring rhetoric is THIS harsh political reality As word trickled out Tuesday night that Democrats had recaptured the House, likely Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California wasted no time in celebrating the moment. “Tomorrow will be a new day in America,” she proclaimed. But beyond Pelosi’s soaring rhetoric is a harsh political reality: the power to shape the country no longer rests in the House. Instead, the waning influence of America’s legislature is concentrated in the Senate. And unless Democrats can take back the upper chamber, Tuesday’s victory is...

Abu Moaaz, a bomb maker for ISIS, was manufacturing explosives in central Iraq, about 15 miles north of Baqubah when the explosion took place, The Daily Mail reported. He had recently supplied ISIS numerous explosive devices that were used to kill many people, including law enforcement.

    A newly released psychological study shows that some students are exhibiting symptoms associated with post-traumatic stress disorder following the 2016 election. The study revealed that of 769 students at Arizona State University studying psychology in January and February 2017, 25 percent of them reported experiencing “clinically significant” levels of stress after completing a psychological assessment known as the the Impact of Event Scale. The assessment, which had been adjusted to take into account the 2016 election, indicated that students’ average stress score was similar to those of witnesses of a mass shooting seven months after the incident. “What we were...
