Mexico navy official: No missing child in collapsed school

A high-ranking navy official said Thursday there is no missing child at a collapsed Mexico City school that had become a focus of rescue efforts following this week's deadly magnitude 7.1 earthquake, though an adult still may be alive in the rubble.

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

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

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

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.

The investigation revealed that several personal injury attorneys  were paying people to unlawfully solicit unsuspecting vehicle accident  victims to make insurance claims for damages or personal injury  benefits.

The New York Times (9/18/17) quoted CSIS’s Anthony Cordesman saying that Sen. John McCain “has lived with underfunding of the military, seen the impact on readiness, seen the strains that impact the force.” The New York Times (9/18/17) gave an enormous platform to a hawkish think tank that is funded by the US government and by […]
