Hurricane Jose inundates Mid-Atlantic and New England beaches with coastal flooding

Hurricane Jose inundates Mid-Atlantic and New England beaches with coastal flooding

Jose has been unleashing coastal flooding, beach erosion, gusty winds and rain to the mid-Atlantic and New England coasts.

Although Jose is not making landfall, hurricanes do not need to make landfall to cause significant adverse effects such as coastal flooding.

"After Tuesday night, conditions will be improving. The high tide tonight might be the worst, but after things will improve," David Dombek, AccuWeather senior meteorologist, said.

Sinkhole opens in San Diego, gushes water onto Interstate 8

Sinkhole opens in San Diego, gushes water onto Interstate 8

A sinkhole opened up on a major highway in San Diego, sending water and mud into several lanes and shutting down the main east-west artery during lunchtime.

The California Highway Patrol issued a SigAlert for eastbound Interstate 8 in the Hotel Circle area of Mission Valley after a pipe burst. Several hours later, around 6 p.m., officials began to open up lanes.

While San Diego City water crews were working on repairing the break in the pipe, Caltrans crews were on the scene assessing the damage to the road. There was no information on how long the closure would last.

Still no evidence: 'Analysts' claim Russians & US Alt-Right teaming up to meddle in German elections

Still no evidence: 'Analysts' claim Russians & US Alt-Right teaming up to meddle in German elections

Despite Germany's unfounded fears that Moscow could meddle in its upcoming election, analysts say they "haven't seen any trace of the Russians." Instead, they say there is evidence that America's far-right is trying to sway voters.

"So far we have not been able to track down any specific Russian activity," Simon Hegelich, a professor of political science data at the Technical University of Munich who has advised the German government about the threat of hacking and false information, told USA Today.

According to Hegelich, America's so-called 'Alt-right' movement, a term which defines far-right ideology which includes racism and white nationalism, appears to be aiming to influence the German election.

Earthquake swam at base of Mount Rainier unlikely to signal impending eruption, say scientists

Earthquake swam at base of Mount Rainier unlikely to signal impending eruption, say scientists

Nearly two dozen small earthquakes have rattled Mount Rainier over the past week, but seismologists say there's no cause for worry.

"In the past, these swarms last a couple of days to a week or so and then die out," said Paul Bodin, of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network at the University of Washington.

The first of the 23 quakes struck on Sept. 11 near the volcano's summit. The largest of the quakes registered magnitude 1.6.

So, what caused those mysterious booms in northwestern Wisconsin? We don't know

So, what caused those mysterious booms in northwestern Wisconsin? We don't know

Saturday night, Sept. 9, around 9:30 p.m., residents reported hearing mysterious booms across the region.

Posting to online social media, people said they heard the noise in Chetek, Cameron, Barron, Weyerhaeuser, Trego and even Hudson and Cushing. Some said it sounded like distant thunder, though there was not a cloud in the sky Saturday night.

Theories sprang forth. Was it a tiny, imperceptible earthquake, a shooting star, a jet breaking the sound barrier or just your crazy neighbors shooting some high-powered fireworks?

There was a 9 p.m. fireworks display in Barron for Fall Fest, and Barron County dispatch logs do report other fireworks in Rice Lake. But it is not likely that fireworks in Rice Lake would be heard in Chetek. Perhaps, coincidentally, there were others closer.

Russia virtually free of anti-Semitism says head of Russia's Federation of Jewish Communities

Russia virtually free of anti-Semitism says head of Russia's Federation of Jewish Communities

The head of Russia's Federation of Jewish Communities has told reporters that over the past years manifestations of anti-Semitism in the country have been at a minimal level and boiled down to day-to-day cases.

"As far as Russia is concerned, here we have mainly day-to-day anti-Semitism and even this is on a minimal level," Aleksandr Boroda said in an interview with Interfax.

He added that radical groups with extremist views existed everywhere in the world, including the United States, and that the current situation in European countries had prompted many European Jews to seek repatriation to Israel.

Boroda told reporters that, outside of Israel, the Jewish population in Russia of about 1 million was the second largest in the world after the United States with 5.4 million.

SOTT FOCUS: The Rohingya 'Crisis': U.S. Legacy and Current Policy in Southeast Asia

SOTT FOCUS: The Rohingya 'Crisis': U.S. Legacy and Current Policy in Southeast Asia

It's all too easy for Western governments, their media and 'NGOs' to jerk the emotional chains of Western populations. A humanitarian crisis can be ongoing for years, but if Western governments have nothing to gain from it (or are partly responsible for it), the Western media says little about it and the populations of Western nations remain oblivious. If, on the other hand, Western governments decide that some beleaguered group of people should become the next humanitarian cause célèbre in service to some geopolitical intrigue, the Western press is activated and suddenly everyone is 'up in arms' with calls to 'do something' to help the poor [insert name of ethnic or religious group in specific geopolitical hotspot].

The whole world has had several masterclasses in this kind of manipulation, from babies in incubators in Kuwait in 1991 to helping the poor Bosnian and Kosovar Muslims in Yugoslavia in 1999 to '45 minutes to Iraqi WMD destruction' in 2003, to the more recent and unsophisticated ploy of claiming that a given leader of a given nation is a 'dictator killing his own people'. Despite these opportunities to inform themselves about how the world really works, like Pavlov's dogs, the global population can still be relied on to react in the wrong way at the sounding of the 'humanitarian' bell.
