  1. Planes Cockpit Window Ripped Out at 32,000 ft. Forcing Emergency Landing The pilots of a Chinese passenger jet made an emergency landing after a cockpit windscreen was ripped out in mid-air. Two crew members on the Sichuan Airlines flight were injured when the plane’s window blew out as it cruised at 32,000ft with 119 passengers on board. The jet’s flight control unit was badly damaged by the resulting sudden decompression. Some parts of the system were reportedly sucked out of the gaping window, forcing the pilots to fly manually before landing the airliner safely at the south-west Chinese city of Chengdu.
  2. Cracks in Hawaii volcano roar amid warnings of more New fissures roaring like jet engines and spewing magma have opened on Hawaii's Kilauea volcano, piling lava as high as a four-story building as the U.S. Geological Survey warned that more outbreaks were likely. A crack in pasture land on Kilauea's east flank was the 16th recorded since the U.S. volcano, one of the world's most active, erupted eight days ago. Thousands of people have fled their homes on Big Island and dozens of homes have been destroyed. The new fissure opened up on Saturday about a mile (1.6 km) east of the existing vent system that has devastated the island's Leilani Estates neighborhood, close to several homes on the edge of the field. "It's right by my house, which is kind of scary," said Haley Clinton, 17, who walked to see the new crack with her father, Darryl, and sister Jolon, 15. "It's really cool." From afar, the fissure gave off dull, thumping roars that sharpened on approach to a scream from venting steam and gas, mixed with the slapping sounds of liquid lava.
  3. FEARS OF TSUNAMI FOR U.S. WEST COAST AS ERUPTING HAWAII VOLCANO FRACTURES MASSIVE UNSTABLE LANDMASS Scientists from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) have contacted me regarding a staggering development taking place right now during the eruption of the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii: An area of land on the south flank of the volcano known as the "Hilina Slump" - about the size of Manhattan - is moving and could BREAK OFF into the ocean, sending a Tsunami toward the west coast with 100+ foot waves moving at 500 miles per hour. Cities like San Diego, Los Angeles and others could be wiped off the face of the earth. They say the bosses at USGS know about this and are intentionally concealing it from the public for fear of causing a panic. Media outlets in Hawaii and in Los Angeles have allegedly been specifically told not to say anything . . . yet . . . for the same reason. I am breaking this story. As most of the civilized world knows by now, the Kilauea volcano on the south side of Hawaii's big island, began erupting earlier this week. Prior to the appearance of lava at the surface, hundreds of small earthquakes were felt. Then the quakes got bigger. A magnitude 5.6 struck Thursday evening and a strong Magnitude 6.9 was a sort of announcement by the volcano that it was time to blast off. This map from the USGS web site, shows the location of the Magnitude 6.9 quake and the rings indicate how far away the quake was felt:
  4. Hawaii's Kilauea volcano could see explosive eruptions: U.S. agency There is a growing chance of explosive eruptions of Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano in coming weeks that could shoot rocks for miles and cause ashfall for dozens of miles, the U.S. Geological Survey said on Wednesday.
  5. Doctors raise alarm about ancient HTLV-1 virus: 'Prevalence is off the charts' in Australia An ancient virus infecting residents across Australia's Northern Territory is leaving death and despair in its path, and doctors are now calling for greater efforts to stop the spread of infections. The rates of human T-cell leukemia virus type 1, or HTLV-1, infection are exceeding 40% among adults in remote regions of central Australia, with indigenous communities being the hardest hit, especially in the town of Alice Springs. Many doctors -- including the man who discovered the virus nearly four decades ago -- are raising the alarm about how little has been done to prevent, test for and treat HTLV-1, which can cause leukemia and lymphoma. "The prevalence is off the charts" in Australia, said Dr. Robert Gallo, co-founder and director of the Institute of Human Virology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, whose laboratory was the first to detect HTLV-1 in 1979 and publish the finding in 1980. Yet "nobody that I know of in the world has done anything about trying to treat this disease before," said Gallo, who is also co-founder and scientific director of the Global Virus Network and chairs the network's HTLV-1 Task Force. "There's little to almost no vaccine efforts, outside of some Japanese research," he said. "So prevention by vaccine is wide open for research." HTLV-1 -- an ancient virus whose DNA can be found in 1,500-year-old Andean mummies -- can spread from mother to child, particularly through breastfeeding; between sexual partners, through unprotected sex; and by blood contact, such as through transfusions. Because it can be transmitted through sex, it's considered a sexually transmitted infection, or STI. The virus is associated with myriad serious health problems, such as diseases of the nervous system and a lung-damaging condition called bronchiectasis, and it weakens the immune system. HTLV-1 is sometimes called a cousin of the human immunodeficiency virus, HIV.
  6. New Zealand's 'biggest' sinkhole unearthed by dairy farmer A massive sinkhole has opened up on a New Zealand farm, with a volcanologist saying it is the biggest he has ever seen in the country. The crack was discovered at Earthquake Flat, 15 kilometres south-east of Rotorua on New Zealand's North Island Vulcanologist Brad Scott visited the farm where it was discovered and said it would have taken decades for the underground cavity to grow, but was spurred on by recent heavy rain. "The largest I've seen prior to this would be about a third of the size of this, so this is really big," he said.
  7. Massive 6.9-magnitude quake rocks Big Island as eruption continues PUNA, BIG ISLAND (HawaiiNewsNow) - Just an hour after a large tremor Friday morning, a 6.9-magnitude earthquake shook the Big Island on Friday afternoon, sending people fleeing from buildings and community centers and increasing concerns about new eruptions in Puna's Leilani Estates. The temblor was the largest in Hawaii since 1975, and did generate small tsunami waves around the Big Island, triggering sea fluctuations that ranged from 8 inches in Hilo to 16 inches at Kapoho, Hawaii County Civil Defense said.
  8. Federal Judge Accuses Robert Mueller of Lying and Targeting President Trump President Trump was just sent a gift-wrapped explosive in the form of critique towards Special Counsel Robert Mueller from a federal judge who says that Mueller not only lied but is directly targeting President Trump. The ongoing witch hunt into the Trump Administration seems to know zero boundaries, with Robert Mueller being appointed to investigate alleged “Russian meddling,” and nearly sixteen months into the Trump Presidency having found zero evidence to support that claim. United States District Judge T.S. Ellis III blasted Robert Mueller on Friday at a Paul Manafort hearing in a federal courtroom, where Judge Ellis said that Mueller's team of Democratic-puppet investigators have lied to the government about the scope of their investigation.
  9. Kroger ground beef among 17.7 tons recalled for potential plastics contamination A North Carolina food processor has recalled more than 17.7 tons of ground beef, some of which was sold in Kroger stores, for possible contamination with plastic bits, according to the Department of Agriculture. JBS USA is recalling 35,464 pounds of raw ground beef processed at its Lenoir, N.C., facility for possible contamination with hard plastic pieces, the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced late Wednesday. The recall comes after a consumer found blue, hard, plastic pieces in one of the products, the USDA says. The department says there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of the products, which were produced March 22, 2018. The ground beef, sold in a variety of packages, was shipped to distribution centers in Virginia and Indiana and sent to retailers including Kroger stores in North Carolina, Virginia, Indiana, Illinois and eastern West Virginia, as well as Food 4 Less and Jay C stores in the Midwest.
  10. 'It sounded like a bomb:' 8 possible sinkholes open near Ocala homes An area of an Ocala community has been taped off after at least eight possible sinkholes opened Wednesday and Thursday, officials said. The holes opened up on a hillside leading to a retention pond, forcing rescue crews to evacuate people from a row of town homes. Ocala Fire Rescue said eight town homes were evacuated Wednesday night in the Wynchase Townhomes complex on Southwest 42nd Place after the holes began forming earlier in the day.
  11. Collapse of North Korea nuclear site threatens fallout: report A North Korean nuclear site in the country's north has collapsed, threatening an "unprecedented risk" of radioactive fallout including in neighbouring China, the South China Morning Post (SCMP) newspaper reported. The Hong Kong-based publication said on Wednesday that the collapse at Punggye-ri near the border with China "may" be the reason why North Korean leader Kim Jong-un declared an immediate halt of its nuclear and missile tests, according to one researcher, The newspaper report said the test site was "wrecked" beyond repair.
  12. Toronto Fire says 'numerous' casualties after vehicle hits crowd Toronto Fire says “numerous” casualties have been reported after a vehicle ran into people on Monday afternoon. Stephan Powell, district chief at Toronto Fire, is urging people to stay away from the area near the North York Civic Centre as first responders are working at the scene. Toronto Paramedic Services would not confirm any casualties, but said they are treating patients at the scene. A spokeswoman for the service says “all resources” are being used and the public is being asked to stay away from the area.
  13. E. coli outbreak warning expands to all types of romaine lettuce Public health officials are now telling consumers to avoid all types of romaine lettuce from southwest Arizona because of an E. coli outbreak linked to the vegetable that has spread to at least 16 states and sickened at least 60 people, including eight inmates at an Alaska prison. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday that new information about the illnesses in Alaska led them to expand a warning beyond chopped romaine to include any type of romaine lettuce, including whole heads and hearts of romaine. Although the exact source hasn't been identified, federal health officials have said information indicates that the contaminated lettuce was grown in the Yuma, Ariz., area. But consumers anywhere in the United States who have store-bought romaine at home, including in salads and salad mixes, should throw it away immediately if they don't know its specific source, officials said — even if some had already been eaten with no ill effects.
  14. North Korea willing to accept 'complete denuclearization' without conditions, Moon says SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea has expressed its commitment to "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula and is not seeking conditions, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Thursday, as the United States vowed to maintain "maximum pressure" on Pyongyang. Moon said big-picture agreements about denuclearization, establishing a peace regime and normalization of relations between the two Koreas and the United States should not be difficult to reach through summits between the North and South, and between the North and the United States. "I don't think denuclearization has different meanings for South and North Korea," Moon said during a lunch with chief executives of Korean media companies. "The North is expressing a will for a complete denuclearization." "They have not attached any conditions that the U.S. cannot accept, such as the withdrawal of American troops from South Korea," he continued. "All they are talking about is the end of hostile policies against North Korea, followed by a guarantee of security."
  15. Woman Partially Sucked Out of Jet When Window Breaks Mid-Flight; Plane Makes Emergency Landing in Philadelphia A passenger died and seven others were injured after the engine of a Southwest Airlines jet blew open in mid-air, sending debris into the plane's body and bursting a window. Passengers described hearing the Boeing 737-700's left engine explode about 20 minutes after takeoff from New York's LaGuardia Airport Tuesday morning. The plane violently depressurized when the window broke open. The pressure change apparently pulled a female passenger partially out of the jet, according to a family member of another passenger.
  16. Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung volcano erupts, spewing ash cloud into the air and threatening flights INDONESIA has raised flight warnings around the Mount Sinabung volcano on Sumatra island to their highest level after it sent a towering plume of ash more than seven kilometres into the air on Monday, its biggest eruption this year. Areas around the crater of the volcano, located about 1900km northwest of the capital Jakarta, have been off-limits for several years because of frequent volcanic activity.
  17. There's an Absolutely Massive Lava Dome Lurking Underneath Japan An ancient underwater volcano responsible for one of the largest known super-eruptions in history looks to be busy making silent, fiery preparations for its inevitable return. The Kikai Caldera, located to the south of Japan's main islands, devastated a large swathe of the Japanese archipelago when it spewed upwards of 500 cubic kilometres (120 cubic miles) of magma during the Akahoya eruption some 7,000 years ago – and scientists have just confirmed evidence of new volcanic activity under the crater. Researchers at Kobe University have detected a giant lava dome that exists below the Kikai Caldera, holding a volume of more than 32 cubic kilometres (almost 8 cubic miles) of trapped magma – a buildup that could reveal clues as to when Kikai's next super-eruption may be unleashed.
  18. Barack and Michelle Obama portraits unveiled at National Portrait Gallery The National Portrait Gallery has two new additions to its collection of presidential portraits: Former president Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama.

  20. I started taking carbon 60 on Dec. 29th and have had some very good results so far. Rather amazing actually. It seems to really be great for inflammation and arthritis. I have one knee that needs replacing that at times i could barely get around on.. If i sat for any length of time i had trouble getting up and moving. If i stood or walked too much the knee would swell. I still work full time and was starting to worry about making it through the next tourist season at this rate. I am now popping up off the couch or computer chair and moving right out. I am walking farther and standing all day with little or no pain. I had stopped taking pain pills or nsaids last year as i found myself allergic to most of them. I really did not expect to feel this good again without surgery. My energy levels are way up there also. A huge thank you to Phil for his information and help.
  21. TRUMP DIVIDES AMERICANS AND UN-AMERICANS There are two stories of America. One is the American story and the other the un-American story. On one side there are pilgrims settling a new land and on the other colonists ethnically cleansing the native population. One side sees war heroes and the other sees killers. One sees brave police officers and the other genocidal bigots in uniform. One sees America. And the other hates it. At the State of the Union, we saw those two halves divide up the House Chamber. We saw American elected officials stand for the flag, for the anthem, for veterans, for Jerusalem and for In God We Trust. And we saw the un-American officials selected by corrupt urban machine politics stay seated. The leaders of America and un-America were there in one room while America’s story was told. We saw heroes rise in the House Chamber and we saw the Congressional Black Caucus members in kente cloth scowling through the good news about African-American unemployment. Rep. Pelosi grimaced and Senator Schumer glared through President Trump’s appeal for bipartisanship. Senator Booker stared hatefully and Elizabeth Warren ranted hysterically on Twitter. The Democrats and the media called the speech divisive. And it was. But not in the way they meant. There was little in the way of partisanship in President Trump’s remarks. They were meant to unite the men and women in the House Chamber “not as Republicans or Democrats, but as representatives of the people.” Even his tough talk on immigration came with offers of a negotiated compromise.
  22. Scandalous CDC director RESIGNS after caught buying shares of vaccine maker Merck while heading the CDC As yet more proof that the CDC functions as little more than an extension of the corrupt vaccine industry, CDC director Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald was forced to resign yesterday following a scandalous Politico report that exposed her ownership of shares of Big Tobacco companies as well as Merck, a prominent vaccine manufacturer whose products are promoted by the CDC. The gross conflict of interest didn’t stop there, either: Fitzgerald also purchased shares of junk food companies and a tobacco corporation, according to media reports, all while she was serving as director of the CDC. “Documents revealed Fitzgerald had holdings in Reynolds American, British American Tobacco, Imperial Brands, Philip Morris International, and Altria Group,” reports CNBC. “Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald had also invested money in food and pharmaceutical companies just one month after taking over the job,” reports the UK Daily Mail.

  25. Huge waves pound coast; man swept out to sea The forecast of dramatic seas and unusually high waves drew many people to the shore, and a 44-year-old man was swept out to sea near Depoe Bay around 11:30 a.m. Thursday, ­according to ­the ­Depoe Bay Fire District. The search for him was called off late Thursday, the Coast Guard reported. Authorities were withholding the man’s identity pending notification of his family in Mexico. Popular seafront Lincoln City establishments such as the Sea Gypsy Inn at 145 N.W. Inlet Ave. and the Sandcastle Beachfront Motel at 3417 S.W. Anchor Ave. were heavily damaged by the surging waters, with windows torn out and their interiors inundated. North Lincoln Fire & Rescue posted photos of damage to Kyllo’s Seafood and Grill, 1110 N.W. First Court, where waves tore through windows and stripped off siding before swirling through the parking lot, leaving large rocks in their wake. Massive waves pummel Oregon coast; man swept to sea in Depoe Bay presumed dead Monstrous waves, some twice the size of a two-story home, are battering the coast of the Pacific Northwest. The display of oceanic power, fueled by a storm system off the coast, has made for some fantastic storm watching, but has created dangerous conditions for beach-goers and some oceanside businesses. The U.S. Coast Guard announced that it is no longer searching for a man in his mid-40s who was swept away by a wave in Depoe Bay after what the agency reported as "negative results." The man had reportedly ventured over a sea wall to look at the ocean during the storm earlier in the day. He is presumed dead, Oregon State Police said.
