Iran’s nuclear warheads could hit NY in 3 to 4 years – Netanyahu to UN

 

Iran is building missiles that could reach New York in three to four years, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the UN on Tuesday, comparing a nuclear Iran to “50 North Koreas.” It comes after Hassan Rouhani launched his “charm offensive.” “Iran is now building ICBMs that the US says could reach this city in three or four years,” Netanyahu said, speaking to the UN General Assembly in New York. He used this argument to bring the “truth” about Iran into a practical dimension.  Netanyahu accused Iran’s nuclear program of not being peaceful. “Why would a country with a peaceful nuclear program develop intercontinental ballistic missiles, whose sole purpose is to deliver nuclear warheads,” he said.  More

WE WILL NOT LET IRAN GET NUKES EVEN IF WE STAND ALONE – Benjamin Netanyahu


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu played the spoiler Tuesday to any easing of Iran’s relations with the West, telling world leaders his country will do whatever it takes to prevent Tehran from developing nuclear weapons, even if it has to stand alone. Speaking at the U.N. General Assembly, Netanyahu asserted that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani must have known about a terror attack on a Buenos Aires Jewish community center in 1994, as well as the 1996 bombing in Saudi Arabia that killed 19 Americans, because he was national security adviser at the time. Last week, President Barack Obama and the Iranian leader spoke on the phone, the highest level contacts between their countries in 34 years. Netanyahu said Israel’s future is threatened by a “nuclear-armed” Iran seeking its destruction and urged the international community to keep up pressure through sanctions. More

About 40 Percent Of All Food In The United States Is Thrown In The Garbage

Could that headline actually be true?  Do Americans waste about 40 percent of all the food that we produce?  That sounds like an absolutely crazy number, but it is actually quite accurate according to a study conducted by the Natural Resources Defense Council.  What the NRDC discovered is that approximately 40 percent of our total food supply is either thrown into dumpsters by grocery stores, is discarded by restaurants, never gets harvested on our farms, or is thrown into the garbage by consumers in their homes.  Even though 47 million Americans are on food stamps and millions of children go to bed hungry in this country every single night, we continue to waste approximately 263 million pounds of food every single day of the year.  One day people will look back and regard us as probably the most wasteful society in the history of the planet. More

Now Japan pulls Gardasil shots for young girls

Japanese government officials, stunned by nearly 2,000 reports of “adverse effects” from a highly touted cervical cancer vaccine promoted widely in the United States, have decided to withdraw their recommendation for its use across the island nation. Word comes from officials with Judicial Watch, the Washington-based corruption watchdog that has been monitoring the effects – and health costs – of the drug’s use in the United States for years.  “Japanese health officials have recorded nearly 2,000 adverse reactions – hundreds of them serious – in girls who got a dangerous U.S. government-backed cervical cancer vaccine that’s also been linked to thousands of debilitating side effects in this country,” Judicial Watch reported Tuesday. “The alarming reports have led Japan’s government to take action, suspending recommendation for the controversial vaccine which is billed as a miracle shot that can prevent certain strains of cervical cancer caused by Human Papillomavirus (HPV).” The organization continued, “The U.S. government has taken the opposite approach amid equally alarming cases of serious side effects. Not only does the Obama administration continue recommending the vaccine (Gardasil), it spends large sums of taxpayer dollars promoting it and works hard to keep details involving its dangers secret.” More

Pakistan’s death toll from double earthquakes rises to 825


PAKISTAN
 – The death toll from two powerful earthquakes that devastated an impoverished region of Balochistan has climbed to 825, National Disaster Management Authority said on Tuesday. more than 30 villages, containing some 20,000 homes, were flattened across 15,400 square miles of the remote Balochistan region. Dozens of bodies are being recovered every day from mud homes whose walls and beams have been reduced to dust and rubble. Conditions are desperate among the survivors and many are going without food, water and shelter, having lost everything in the quake. So far, no relief camp has been established Mashkay, Gashgor and Malar areas where quack victims waiting for government help under open skies. Baloch rebel militant group’s attacks on security forces disturbed rescue operation in quake-hit areas of restive province. According to PDMA, rescue teams will be sent to the affected areas only after security clearance. The quake is Pakistan s deadliest since the Kashmir tremor of 2005 which killed 73,000. The toll is expected to rise further as rescue teams dig through the rubble of countless flattened mud-brick homes. Extinction Protocol

Fukushima could be 15,000 times worse than Hiroshima with removal of fuel rods


JAPAN
 – A Yale Professor is compelling the world to wake up from its nuclear slumber and face some cold-hard facts, “All of humanity will be threatened for thousands of years” if the Fukushima Unit 4 pool can’t be kept cool. Your worries about eating cesium-contaminated fish from the Pacific Ocean are grounded in fact, but this is a world-wide disaster of the most epic proportions just waiting to happen. If nothing else, it points to the necessity of nuclear-free power to fuel the planet, but in the meantime, more than 1,535 fuel rods must be meticulously removed from Unit 4, which in all likelihood is crumbling. Charles Perrow, Professor Emeritus of Sociology from Yale University cautions: “Conditions in the unit 4 pool, 100 feet from the ground, are perilous, and if any two of the rods touch it could cause a nuclear reaction that would be uncontrollable. The radiation emitted from all these rods, if they are not continually cool and kept separate, would require the evacuation of surrounding areas including Tokyo. Because of the radiation at the site the 6,375 rods in the common storage pool could not be continuously cooled; they would fission and all of humanity will be threatened, for thousands of years.” In early stages of the Fukushima disaster Tepco, under influence of the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA), tried to keep the full ramifications of Fukushima under wraps, and now the entire country faces a possible trillion dollar price tag and multiple decades of active clean up to make this go away, but that will all be a moot point if the fuel rods aren’t removed properly. All the boron between spent fuel rods has disintegrated.
This means a nuclear chain reaction could ensue if the rods get too close together in the pools, causing nuclear mayhem like we’ve never endured. In less than two months, Tepco plans to try to remove these rods, admitting that they haven’t the expertise or resources to do it perfectly – and that is what it would take – absolute perfection. According to globalreasearch.ca, “Some 400 tons of fuel in that pool could spew out more than 15,000 times as much radiation as was released at Hiroshima. More than 6,000 fuel assemblies now sit in a common pool just 50 meters from Unit Four. Some contain plutonium. The pool has no containment over it. It’s vulnerable to loss of coolant, the collapse of a nearby building, another earthquake, another tsunami and more.” Overall, more than 11,000 fuel assemblies are scattered around the Fukushima site. According to long-time expert and former Department of Energy official Robert Alvarez, there is more than 85 times as much lethal cesium on site as was released at Chernobyl.” This is no time for Tepco or the Japanese government to try to save face, or the world to turn the other cheek. If we don’t treat this as a global disaster it would be like waiting for the Russians to start nuclear war back in the 1980s – or worse. Harvey Wasserman has created a petition at NukeFree.org to alert our own president and other politicians about the extreme seriousness of this incident. All while they were planning to go to war with Syria, the nuclear disaster right under our noses was escalating to unfathomable proportions. Not to sound doom and gloom, but it’s important to recognize the ramifications if this issue isn’t taken care of – properly.Extinction Protocol

‘Month-After-Sex’ Pill Is ‘Abortion Not Contraception’

A so-called “contraceptive” pill, which could work up to a month after unprotected sex, is a “contradiction in terms,” critics say. Researchers have published a journal article calling for such a pill to be developed, saying it is scientifically possible but politically difficult. Dr. Peter Saunders of the Christian Medical Fellowship says this would be “abortion not contraception” because it would destroy an embryo rather than prevent a conception. He says it would effectively be “the deregulation of early abortion by making it available over the counter.” He also points to the risk of increasing sexually transmitted infections and the risk of exposing women to sexual abuse. And Norman Wells of the Family Education Trust says researchers are essentially calling for the development of an abortion pill. “To call a drug a contraceptive when it is designed and intended to be used after intercourse and potentially after fertilization is a complete misnomer,” he says.  “There is no such thing as an ‘after-sex contraceptive pill.’ It is a contradiction in terms,” he adds. “In their zeal to increase choices for women, the researchers have lost sight of the other person who is involved in every abortion no matter how early a pregnancy is ended.” More

ROME BURNING? Barack Obama is presiding over the end of America’s superpower status

For a country that is supposed to be the most powerful in the world, the fact that Americans have today woken up  to find large swathes of their nation closed for business is humiliating.  Thanks to President Barack Obama obduracy over his flagship healthcare policy, Democrats and Republicans have failed to reach agreement in Congress on the federal budget, forcing the US Government to close down for the first time in 17 years, with around 700,000 federal workers being placed on indefinite leave. While the White House insists that essential areas of the government, such as the military, will continue to function, the shut down represents yet a further blow to the prestige of the Obama administration at a time when it is still reeling from its inept handling of the recent Syrian crisis. There was a time not so long ago when the world looked to America for both political and economic leadership. But now that can no longer be taken for granted thanks to Mr Obama’s inability to provide decisive leadership on either front. More

Obamacare site goes live, with some glitches


Uninsured Americans around the country showed up at health centers and logged onto government Web sites Tuesday morning in hopes of being among the first to sign up for coverage under the president’s health-care law, but many ran into technical glitches that prevented them from enrolling. Among them was Paula Thornhill, 31, who turned up at the Greater Prince William Community Health Center in Virginia, a couple of her children in tow. Center staff told her the Web site was down, so they could not yet enroll her or tell her how much it would cost. But Thornhill, who is without health insurance, remained hopeful that she would be able to find affordable coverage. “I’m relieved that they did come out with this affordable health care,” she said, as her mother-in-law filled out some paper forms. “I’m relieved.” Across the country, Web-based marketplaces that form the centerpiece of the sweeping program known as Obamacare opened for business, a landmark moment for the embattled program that is at the heart of the standoff on Capitol Hill. More

An advance group of international inspectors arrived in Syria on Tuesday to begin the ambitious task of overseeing the destruction of President Bashar Assad’s chemical weapons program. Twenty inspectors from a Netherlands-based chemical weapons watchdog crossed into Syria from neighboring Lebanon on their way to Damascus, to begin their complex mission of finding, dismantling and ultimately destroying an estimated 1,000-ton chemical arsenal. The experts have about nine months to complete the task, which has been endorsed by a U.N. Security Council resolution that calls for Syria’s chemical stockpile to be eliminated by mid-2014. It is the shortest deadline that experts from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons have ever faced in any nation, and their first mission in a country at war. Upon arrival in Damascus, the inspectors are expected to meet with Foreign Ministry officials later Tuesday. Experts at The Hague, where the OPCW is based, said Sunday the inspectors’ priority is to achieve the first milestone of helping Syria scrap its ability to manufacture chemical weapons by a Nov. 1 deadline, using every means possible. More

Pentagon chief says shutdown hurts U.S. credibility with allies

U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel speaks to the media about the U.S. government shutdown, at his hotel in Seoul
The U.S. government shutdown will undermine American credibility abroad and lead allies to question its commitment to treaty obligations, the U.S. defense chief warned on Tuesday as he prepared to put 400,000 civilian workers on unpaid leave. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, who was visiting South Korea to celebrate the two nations’ 60-year-old mutual defense treaty, said Pentagon lawyers were analyzing a new law passed by Congress to see if additional civilian workers could be spared unpaid leave. But for the moment, when the department’s 800,000 civilians report to work on Tuesday, approximately half will be told they are not exempted by law from the government shutdown and asked to go home, Hagel told reporters. The Pentagon and other U.S. government agencies began to implement shutdown plans on Tuesday after Congress failed to reach a deal to fund the federal government in the new fiscal year beginning October 1. More

South Korea shows off new missiles designed to hit North

South Korea military parade
South Korea showed off on Tuesday new missiles designed to target North Korea’s artillery and long-range missiles and vowed to boost deterrence against its unpredictable neighbor. The ballistic Hyeonmu-2, with a range of 300 km (190 miles), and the Hyeonmu-3, a cruise missile with a range of more than 1,000 km (620 miles) were put on public display for the first time in a rare South Korean military parade. Both of the indigenously developed missiles have been deployed. They were unveiled in February after the North conducted its third nuclear test in defiance of international warnings, two months after it successfully launched a long-range rocket and put an object into space. ”We must build a strong anti-North deterrence until the day the North drops its nuclear arms and makes the right choice for its people and for peace on the Korean peninsula,” South Korean President Park Geun-hye said at the parade marking the founding of the South’s armed forces 65 years ago. Visiting U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel watched the parade from a podium at a military airfield south of the capital, Seoul. More

Icelanders Sensing ‘Revival’ in Reykjavik

revival in Iceland
It normally takes a lot to move Skúli Barker to tears. But what he witnessed on Sunday night in his country… He’ll be the first to tell you, that simply doesn’t happen in Iceland. “My wife was sobbing next to me,” Skúli said. “And I started to cry. It’s just amazing.” It started off as a few souls responding at the end ofFranklin Graham’s gospel message and before he knew it, throngs were flooding the stage, elbow-to-elbow, hundreds of people packed in, aisles backed up. People wanting to meet Jesus. And willing to say that out loud. Pray that out loud. Skúli doesn’t want to be overdramatic, mind you, but he’s a native Icelander in his 40s now, and he’s seen the state of Icelandic people when it comes to talking about God or anything spiritual. “There’s a joke here that we are the ‘Frozen Chosen,’ ” Skúli said. “But it’s really true. In Iceland, people don’t show their feelings. So for Icelanders to come forward to receive Jesus …” Skúli’s voice went silent. His eyes turned red. “It’s just been a real fight here for Christians,” he said. “And this gives us hope.” More

Rare Tornado Strikes Pacific Northwest

A rare tornado damaged industrial buildings south of Seattle as an early winter storm dumped record amounts of rain and knocked out power for thousands in the Pacific Northwest. The tornado at 7:20 a.m. Monday hit the industrial area of Frederickson, tearing a hole in the roof of the Northwest Door factory, blowing out car windows at a nearby Boeing factory, and damaging a building where sections of a downtown Seattle tunnel project were being assembled. A team from the Weather Service office in Seattle went to the scene and confirmed the tornado from eyewitness accounts, meteorologist Johnny Burg said.  There were no injuries. The damage, including a jagged 40-by-40-foot hole in the roof at Northwest Door, stopped work at the factory that makes garage doors. About 100 workers evacuated. More

DAYS OF LOT: Huge Percentage of Children exposed to Hadcore Porn

The moment I knew internet pornography had cast its dark shadow over the lives of millions of ordinary British teenagers will live with me for ever. I was sitting in the smart drama hall of a specialist sports college in the North of England with a fantastic reputation. Before me were a group of 20 boys and girls, aged 13-14. Largely white, working class children, they were well turned-out, polite, giggly and shy.  As the presenter of a Channel 4 documentary called Porn On The Brain, airing next Monday at 10pm, I’d been invited to sit in on a forward-thinking class led by sex education consultant Jonny Hunt, who is regularly asked into schools to discuss sex and relationships. To establish what these kids knew about sex – including pornography – he had asked the children to write an A-Z list of the sexual terms they knew, no matter how extreme. Most of these children had just hit puberty and some were clearly still children: wide-eyed, nervous, with high-pitched voices.  Some of the girls were beginning their first forays into make-up. Several wore braces on their teeth. Everybody was smartly turned out in school uniform, and the most anti-authority statement in the room was a tie worn deliberately short. A One Direction pencil case lay on a desk. These were clearly good children, from good homes. So far, so very, very ordinary. But when Jonny pinned their lists on the board, it turned out that the children’s extensive knowledge of porn terms was not only startling, it superseded that of every adult in the room – including the sex education consultant himself. More

Worst winds in five years cause chaos and damage across Melbourne

Wild weather has caused chaos and widespread damage across Melbourne and the State Emergency Service (SES) is bracing for a heavy workload this morning. The SES received more than 1,000 calls for help after strong north-westerly winds of more than 140 kilometres per hour ripped through Melbourne’s metropolitan area last night, bringing trees crashing down on roads and houses.  Tens of thousands of properties across the state have been left without electricity. In Fitzroy North, a power pole came down, dragging a large branch of a gum tree with it. It brought powerlines down on the footpath with the power lines draped across the forecourt of a home and right down the street. The SES has been out in force in the area with chainsaws to clean up damage and make it as safe as they can for residents and passers-by.But they cannot do anymore work until the power company comes in to secure the fallen powerlines. More

Huge Fireball seen in the skies of Delaware, Dozens witness Spectacular Event


SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS: A large fireball was seen streaking through the night sky by at least 21 people – three of them from Delaware – about 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Witnesses reported the sighting on the American Meteor Society’s website. Middletown-area resident Dan Foraker said he also spotted it, and described the meteor as a “perfectly round ball of fire.” Foraker, who lives near Drawyers Creek off Shallcross Lake Road, said he was sitting outside talking on the phone with his son about the Redskins game, when all of a sudden a ball of fire appeared over the line of trees.  “I’ve never seen anything that big. I didn’t know if there was a plane going down,” he said. “It lasted for about six seconds and went down behind the trees. I didn’t hear a sound, but I was waiting to hear a loud boom.” Foraker said he called police and a county officer showed up later and said that the state police helicopter was the only aircraft that had been up in the air about that time. A supervisor with the New Castle County fire board today said no calls were received about that time and no one was dispatched on any calls for a plane down. More

BREAKING NEWS: United States Government Officially Shut Down, Thousands to be Laid Off

Watch this video
BREAKING NEWS
: It’s been 17 years since the last government shutdown. The next one is probably just minutes away. A shutdown appeared certain Monday night as House Republicans acknowledged they can’t overcome Senate objections to a proposal that includes provisions aimed at derailing Obamacare. The plan now is to have another vote that would request a conference with the Senate to work out their differences. The move, which would not avert a shutdown, was slammed by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. He rejected the House’s proposal to meet, saying “we will not go to conference with a gun to our head.” For the second time Monday, the Senate rejected a House Republican effort to derail Obamacare tied to a proposal that would avert the shutdown. The Senate voted to table amendments that would have delayed the individual mandate in the health care law and eliminated health insurance premium subsidies for members of Congress, their staffs and the president. In the latest volley of legislative ping pong over a short-term spending plan needed to avoid the shutdown, House Republicans were expected to meet to discuss their next steps. More

Obamacare installs new scrutiny, fines for charitable hospitals that treat uninsured people


Charitable hospitals that treat uninsured Americans will be subjected to new levels of scrutiny of their nonprofit status and could face sizable new fines under Obamacare. A new provision in Section 501 of the Internal Revenue Code, which takes effect under Obamacare, sets new standards of review and installs new financial penalties for tax-exempt charitable hospitals, which devote a minimum amount of their expenses to treat uninsured poor people. Approximately 60 percent of American hospitals are currently nonprofit. Charity for the uninsured is one of the factors that could discourage enrollment in Obamacare, which requires all Americans to purchase health insurance or else face new taxes themselves from the IRS. More

BREAKING NEWS: Venezuela expels 3 US diplomats Accused of plotting to sabotage the economy.


Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has ordered the expulsion of three US embassy diplomats, accusing them of plotting to sabotage the economy. Maduro made the announcement during a live TV appearance on Monday, saying chargé d’affaires Kelly Keiderling and the two other diplomats would have 48 hours to leave the country, AFP reported. He said the diplomats had met with the “Venezuelan far-right” to finance his opponents and “encourage actions to sabotage the power system and the economy.” ”We will not allow an imperial government to bring money and see how they can stop basic companies and stop the electricity to turn off all of Venezuela,” Maduro said. The Venezuelan president had instructed Foreign Minister Elias Jaua to proceed with the immediate expulsion of the three Americans from the country. On September 3, Maduro blamed Venezuela’s right-wing opposition for causing a major power breakdown that affected much of the country. ”At this hour, all signs indicate that the extreme right has implemented its plan to carry out an Electrical Coup against the nation,” he said. More

TOP 5 THINGS THAT WON’T SHUT DOWN ON TUESDAY

As I write this, the U.S. is just hours away from its 18th government shutdown over the last 35 years. Beyond expectations, House Republicans are sticking to their guns and insisting that President Obama and Senate Democrats make changes to the unpopular ObamaCare law before authorizing further government spending. As I prepare the bottle-rockets for launch at midnight, it is wise to recap what isn’t affected by a government shutdown.  So, without further ado, the top 5 things that won’t shutdown on Tuesday: More

Dirty little secrets of Obamacare and government shutdown

Top Democrats meet to discuss blaming Republicans for the mess they created in Obamacare and the looming government shutdown.
The American public is being scammed by the endless brouhaha concerning Obamacare and the impending government shutdown. Precious little of what is being reported by the mainstream media and the government is the truth. In order for you, the citizen, to be firmly grounded in reality, you must summarily reject most of what you hear and read concerning these two issues. The Market Ticker has provided the straight scoop on the government’s Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, and the looming shutdown of part of the federal government. A summary of the real truth is as follows. First, a shutdown of the government is not the end of the world. Essential government services will continue as usual. The military will protect the country as always. Social Security checks for the elderly will be delivered and deposited as normal. Even the Postal Service will function uninterrupted. More

Strong Fall Season Storm to Impact United States Late this Week


The large sprawling storm system sitting off the Pacific Northwest coast Monday evening is slowly going to make its way to the Central United States and impact a large region with wind, rain, and even snow by Friday.  As the system follows the jet stream southeast into the Rockies, a large area of accumulating snowfall will break out over portions of Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, and Montana. In the Wind River Mountain Ranges of Wyoming including the Big Horn Mountains, heavy snowfall accumulations exceeding a half of foot will put a stall on traffic as visibility reduce due to wind whipped snowfall. Winter Weather Watches/Warnings/Advisories are likely to be poised for the winter alerted regions Thursday-Saturday. While the low pressure system continues to strengthen, it will spread a warm front north warming temperatures 10-20 degrees above-average south of the front. A trailing cold front is expected to set off showers and thunderstorms with the potential for severe weather. There are still some question on the expansiveness of the severe weather but recent model runs show a “capped” air mass which may thankfully put a damper to the extent of thunderstorms that form on Friday. Temperature profiles also suggest low/modest cape values which may also lower the severe weather chances. Keep it tuned for more information as the event draws closer. More

Christianity in Danger of Extinction in Its Birthplace

Middle East Christians
Respected United Kingdom historian Tom Holland said during a briefing in London this week that the world is watching the effective extinction of Christianity in its birthplace. In an apocalyptic appraisal of the worsening political situation in the Middle East, a panel of experts provided a mass of evidence and statistics for the end of the region’s nation-states under the onslaught of militant Islam. “In terms of the sheer scale of the hatreds and sectarian rivalries, we are witnessing something on the scale of horror of the European Thirty Years’ War,” Holland said. “It is the climax of a process grinding its way through the 20th century—the effective extinction of Christianity from its birthplace.” The event, titled “Reporting the Middle East: Why the Truth Is Getting Lost,” sought answers to the “anemic” coverage of attacks on Egypt’s Christians on Aug. 14. Pre-planned destruction of scores of ancient churches, monasteries, schools, orphanages and businesses went unreported for days across the West, said Nina Shea, director of the Hudson Institute’s Religious Freedom Center in Washington, D.C. After the Islamists swept multiple elections during the first revolution in 2011, U.S. newspapers asking how it would change Egypt suggested merely that women would be prohibited from wearing skimpy clothes and that Sharm el-Sheikh would close as a tourist destination. More

DAYS OF LOT: United Methodist Judicial Council to Decide Whether Denomination May Advocate Homosexuality

The United Methodist Judicial Council is set to decide on whether resolutions passed at regional conferences regarding the homosexual lifestyle are permissible according to church doctrine or are a violation of the denomination’s rules. Specifically, the council will decide whether churches within the denomination may support homosexual causes, whether ministers can officiate same-sex ceremonies, and whether regional conferences can urge members to avoid church law regarding homosexuality. The United Methodist Book of Discipline outlines that “the practice of homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching” and that “self-avowed practicing homosexuals” may not be ordained as ministers in the denomination. It also forbids ministers from hosting or participating in “ceremonies that celebrate homosexual unions.” However, during a number of regional conferences, resolutions have been passed that challenge the doctrine in the Book of Discipline. Last year, a number of conference attendees expressed support for a declaration entitled the “Statement of Gospel Obedience,” which asserts that the United Methodist Book of Discipline is wrong to denounce homosexual behavior. More

Obama on Iran: ‘We won’t take military option off the table’

US President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (Reuters/Jason Reed)
The US “won’t take any options off the table, including military action” to ensure that Iran does not develop nuclear weapons, President Barack Obama has told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Obama met with Netanyahu at the White House Oval Office on Monday morning, just three days after his historic phone conference with new Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. The call between the US and Iranian Presidents was the first high-level contact between Washington and Tehran in three decades. The phone call fueled hope for a breakthrough in a years-long standoff between the West and Iran over Tehran’s nuclear program. On Friday, following the phone conversation, Obama said that Rouhani indicated that “Iran will never develop nuclear weapons,” hailing the sentiment as a major step forward in relations between the two countries. On Monday, seeking to ease Israeli concerns about Washington’s engagement with Tehran, Obama said that Iran must prove its words with actions.More

Large fireball seen acoss six Midwestern U.S. States

October 1, 2013 – OHIO – A brilliant fireball lit up the skies over the Midwestern United States, treating bystanders on the ground to an amazing light show last Friday (Sept. 27). The cosmic display came courtesy of a meteoroid traveling at about 114,000 miles per hour (51 km/s) that crashed into Earth’s atmosphere high above Columbus, Ohio. The light show could be seen in 14 states. “This was a very bright event,” Bill Cooke of NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office told Spaceweather.com. “Flares saturated our meteor cameras, and made determination of the end point (the terminus of the fireball’s flight through the atmosphere) virtually impossible. Judging from the brightness, we are dealing with a meter class object.” The bright event amazed people who happened to be watching from the ground. As of Sept. 28, the American Meteor Society received more than 450 reports of the fireball sighting with more than 400 still yet to be reviewed. “It was the most brilliant fireball that I have ever seen,” Angela McClain told Spaceweather.com. “The entire landscape lit up. I spun around and there it was, a huge, bright green light, streaking across the sky. Even when it was gone, there was still a bright line in the sky about 20 seconds later. We were all stunned.” Friday’s fireball may not have been the only major meteoroid event witnessed in the Midwest last week. On Sept. 26, the AMS got more than 730 reports of a separate fireball sighting in Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, Indiana and Wisconsin. –Space
