    New York City Mayor Eric Adams on Sunday said the influx of tens of thousands of migrants will bring a "financial tsunami" as departments across the board are forced to slash budgets to accommodate the new arrivals. The mayor’s dire warning came during an appearance on PIX 11’s "PIX on Politics" days after he predicted that the crisis "will destroy New York City." Adams said it was his job as mayor, to be honest and transparent with New Yorkers about the reality of the crisis they are facing. "We are about to experience a financial … tsunami that I don’t...

The most recent excavations unearthed the remains of two buildings and religious objects.The first building, dating to the 8th century BCE, contains...

    A wall of water as much as 18 feet high rose out of a calm sea and crashed ashore, smashing hundreds of vehicles parked on the beach and causing 75 minor injuries, officials and witnesses said. An undersea landslide apparently caused the 27-mile-long rogue wave late Friday night, a federal seismologist said Saturday."I saw this huge wall of white water," said Roy Bennett of South Daytona Beach, who was walking on the beach with his wife. "I told my wife to run, and I ran behind her. If we hadn't run, we'd have been pinched in between cars or cars...

    In the 1970s, two Roman inscriptions — dated from 245 to 253 AD — were discovered in Écija (known in ancient Roman times as Astigi), a city in Spain's southern province of Seville. The writings on the tablets suggest that the emperor at the time had exempted the Roman province of Baetica (roughly the equivalent of modern-day Andalusia, a region of southern Spain) from taxes...A gigantic tsunami that began in the Bay of Cadiz crashed into land, causing numerous coastal settlements to be abandoned and engulfing everything its path, including the city of Seville, located 45 miles inland from the...
  • An Age Of Compassionate Rulers Who Cared About The People And Their Economy But Did Not Go Into Massive Debt Or Build Power Hungry Tyranny When Natural Disasters Happened

    The pandemic happened. It was real. But the real destructive force was not the Coronavirus. The evil was the insanity of lockdowns, mandates and burdening future generations with massive government debts. Compare this modern madness with the compassion and sense of fiscal restraint implicit in the attitudes of Javanese noblewoman, R A Kartini, when talking about what her father, a Regent, could do for the victims of floods in her era, the early 1900's: "....... the rulers do all that is possible to mitigate the distress. Last year a fishing village lay for a whole week under water; day and...

    The ancient Greek historian Strabo referred to the presence of an important shrine located on the west coast of the Peloponnese some 2,000 years ago. Remains of such an Archaic temple have now been uncovered at the Kleidi site near Samikon, which presumably once formed part of the sanctuary of Poseidon.Researchers of the Austrian Archaeological Institute in collaboration with colleagues from Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU), Kiel University, and the Ephorate of Antiquities of Elis unearthed the remains of an early temple-like structure that was located within the Poseidon sanctuary site and was quite possibly dedicated to the deity himself....

    ...Last spring, Manning realized he could solve the problem by looking elsewhere -- hundreds of kilometers away from Thera -- to regions of the Aegean Sea that experienced the tsunami effects caused by the eruption. Manning incorporated dates obtained for these episodes into his model to test for, and discount, the volcanic carbon dioxide caveat. On Thera itself, he also spotted the importance of a short but clearly observed gap in time between the abandonment of the town at Akrotiri and the huge eruption, and he incorporated this previously overlooked constraint into the modeling....

    The Republican Party’s midterm prospects have markedly improved over the last several weeks. But will 2022 be a red wave election year on par with GOP victories in 1994 and 2010? The warning signs are clearly flashing for the Democratic Party. Recent polling finds that support for Republicans — both generically and in individual races — has increased substantially amid heightened national concerns about the economy and crime, two issues that the GOP leads on. Meanwhile, protecting abortion rights, the crux of the Democratic agenda has become a much less salient issue.

    Filmmaker and activist Michael Moore is forecasting Democrats to keep control of Congress with a blue “tsunami” in this year’s midterms. With Election Day just two weeks away, Moore — who accurately predicted former President Trump’s 2016 win in the face of many pollsters who said otherwise — is anticipating a Democratic wave following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the right to abortion established in Roe v. Wade. “On November 8th, 2022, an unprecedented tsunami of voters will descend upon the polls en masse — and nonviolently, legally, and without mercy remove every last stinking traitor to our Democracy,”...

Cruz said, “I think we are going to see a wave election. I think it’s going to be a tsunami. Republicans are going to retake both the House and Senate. I think in the House, we could easily end up with a majority of 30, 40, 50 votes. In the Senate, I think we are going to retake the majority. I think we will end up with about 53 Republicans in the Senate.” He...

He is laying out a platform for governing, not just a platform for campaigning.” He continued, “I think the American people want to change the trajectory. They want to stop the murders. They want to stop the rising prices. They want to get back to independence in energy. And I think that the...

    The initial tsunami wave created by the eruption of the underwater Hunga Tonga Ha'apai volcano in Tonga in January 2022 reached 90 meters in height, around nine times taller than that from the highly destructive 2011 Japan tsunami, new research has found. An international research team says the eruption should serve as a wake-up call for international groups looking to protect people from similar events in future, claiming that detection and monitoring systems for volcano-based tsunamis are '30 years behind' comparable tools used to detect earthquake-based events. Dr. Mohammad Heidarzadeh, Secretary-General of the International Tsunami Commission and a senior lecturer...

Since then, this ratio has only gotten even more extended, and as shown below it is now at the highest level since the bursting of the dot com bubble!

    Scientists have found evidence that an earthquake 3,800 years ago in Northern Chile is the largest in human history, according to a new study. The quake had a magnitude of around 9.5, prompting tsunamis that struck countries as far away as New Zealand and boulders the size of cars to be carried inland by the waves, according to researchers at the University of Southampton. Since earthquakes occur when two tectonic plates rub together and rupture, a longer rupture indicates a bigger earthquake, they said. "It had been thought there could not be an event of that size in the north...

The study showed that tsunami-causing earthquakes such as the August 12 incident had complex patterns that could confound how scientists measure major tectonic activity Researchers described an initial rupture that happened deep below the oceanic crust in between the South American and South Sandwich tectonic plates at...
