HERE COMES ISON – Crucial rendezvous with the sun on Nov. 28


SIGNS IN THE SUN, MOON AND STARS
:  It’s not at all clear whether Comet ISON will become “the comet of the century,” as skywatchers hoped a year ago, but it’s certainly become a beautiful sight for photographers with the right kind of telescope. Adam Block captured a stunner on Tuesday morning, just before sunrise, using the 0.8-meter Schulman Telescope at the University of Arizona’s SkyCenter atop Mount Lemmon. Block’s picture reveals ISON’s greenish coma, trailed by a long, straight tail. The comet is zooming within the orbit of Mars, heading toward a crucial rendezvous with the sun on Nov. 28.  ”I am certain more images of this will be coming out shortly as it increases in brightness during its dive toward the sun,” Block wrote in an email. “Here is hoping it survives that rendezvous and emerges as something spectacular on the other side! Although its future is questionable … being prepared is always a sure thing to take advantage of quickly changing conditions.” Austrian astrophotographer Michael Jäger also captured a green-tinted glimpse of the comet. ”ISON’s green color comes from the gases surrounding its icy nucleus,” SpaceWeather.com’s Tony Phillips wrote. “Jets spewing from the comet’s core probably contain cyanogen (CN: a poisonous gas found in many comets) and diatomic carbon (C2). Both substances glow green when illuminated by sunlight in the near-vacuum of space.” More

SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS: Meet the asteroid that might hit Earth in 2880

There are over 10,000 near-Earth objects (NEOs) that have been identified so far — asteroids and comets of varying sizes that approach the Earth’s orbital distance to within about 28 million miles. Of the 10,000 discoveries, roughly 10 percent are larger than six-tenths of a mile in size — large enough to have disastrous global consequences should one impact the Earth. This is one of them. First discovered in February 1950, 1950 DA is a 1.1-kilometer-wide asteroid that was observed for 17 days and then disappeared from view. Then it was spotted again on Dec. 31, 2000 — literally on the eve of the 21st century. Coupled with radar observations made a few weeks later in March 2001 it was found that, along with a rather high rotation rate (2.1 hours), asteroid 1950 DA has a trajectory that will bring it very close to Earth on March 16, 2880. How close? Close enough that, within a specific 20-minute window, a collision can not be entirely ruled out. More

PLO official: Palestinians ‘seriously considering’ to declare failure of peace talks

The Palestinians are seriously considering declaring the failure of the peace talks with Israel, a senior PLO official said Wednesday. Hanna Amireh, a member of the PLO Executive Committee, said that this was one of the scenarios that were discussed during the last meeting of the Palestinian leadership.  Amireh accused Israel of seeking to “win time” and blame the Palestinians for the failure of the US-sponsored talks. Israel, he said, is benefiting from the prolonged negotiations in order to “impose more facts on the ground and dictate the outcome of the talks.” Amireh criticized Justice Minister Tzipi Livni for stating that the talks with the Palestinians may extend beyond the nine- month deadline set by the US Administration. He said that Livini’s remarks were in violation of the agreement reached with the Americans. More

Feds Withhold Death Benefits for Fallen Soldiers’ Families…

The Pentagon has confirmed it will not pay death benefits to the families of troops killed in combat during the so-called government shutdown. With Obama’s recent startling admission that he won’t approve any measures to partially restore suspended government payments for purely political reasons, that puts the blame for this outrage squarely on his shoulders. ”Unfortunately, as a result of the shutdown, we do not have the legal authority to make death gratuity payments at this time,” said Lt. Cmdr. Nate Christensen, a Defense Department spokesman. “However, we are keeping a close eye on those survivors who have lost loved ones serving in the Department of Defense.”  The House intends to vote Wednesday to restore funding for the payments. Speaker John Boehner has accused the Obama administration ”of needlessly withholding the money.”  Over the weekend, four soldiers — two of them Army Rangers — and one Marine were killed while conducting combat operations in Afghanistan. The bodies of the four soldiers will be returned to Dover Air Force Base on Wednesday. More

 

Moody’s offers different view on debt limit

One of the nation’s top credit-rating agencies says that the U.S. Treasury Department is likely to continue paying interest on the government’s debt even if Congress fails to lift the limit on borrowing next week, preserving the nation’s sterling AAA credit rating. In a memo being circulated on Capitol Hill Wednesday, Moody’s Investors Service offers “answers to frequently asked questions” about the government shutdown, now in its second week, and the federal debt limit. President Obama has said that, unless Congress acts to raise the $16.7 trillion limit by next Thursday, the nation will be at risk of default. Not so, Moody’s says in the memo dated Oct. 7. ” We believe the government would continue to pay interest and principal on its debt even in the event that the debt limit is not raised, leaving its creditworthiness intact,” the memo says. “The debt limit restricts government expenditures to the amount of its incoming revenues; it does not prohibit the government from servicing its debt. There is no direct connection between the debt limit (actually the exhaustion of the Treasury’s extraordinary measures to raise funds) and a default. More

Christian Legal Group Sues After Transit Authority Refuses Bus Ad for Fear of Offending Muslims

SEATTLE – A Christian legal group has filed suit against the Seattle Transit Authority after it refused to run a bus advertisement out of a fear of offending Muslims. The American Freedom Law Center, based in Ann Arbor Michigan, is representing the Freedom Defense Initiative, led by Pamela Geller, a Jew known for placing transit ads pertaining to Islam. Earlier this year, the Joint Terrorism Task Force launched its “Faces of Global Terrorism” ad campaign, displaying wanted ads in various locations throughout the Seattle area. The campaign was part of the Puget Sound Rewards for Justice program, which offers monetary rewards to those who provide “information that helps stop terrorism.” As part of the program, the FBI displayed wanted ads on “highway billboards, airport displays, bus posters and elsewhere.” However, as previously reported, some individuals lodged complaints about the advertisements, stating that they were “offensive to Muslims.” Representative Jim McDermott of Washington wrote a letter to FBI Director George Mueller last June about the matter. He stated that the advertisements, which feature the photographs of 16 most wanted terrorists, and read, “Stop a terrorist. Save lives. Up to $25 million reward,” may be seen as an insult to Islam. More

Americans Caught in Gunfire During Kenyan Mall Attack Credit God for Miraculous Protection

Two American citizens that were caught in the gunfire that echoed throughout the walls of the Westgate Mall in Kenya last month are crediting God for sparing their life their day. Andrew Strickenburg, 26, of Denver, Colorado, and Katherine Walton, 38, who last lived in Charlotte, North Carolina before moving to the country, believe that it is a miracle that they are alive today. Strickenburg was visiting the country on a business trip and arrived at the mall that day with a guide to conduct a bit of research at a popular grocery store. When the two went to take a break for lunch, their driver pulled up to the front entrance to meet them. However, just as Strickenburg climbed into the van, he heard gunshots ring out and felt pain in his back. He and the driver hit the floor, and his guide thrust himself on top of Strickenburg to cover him.More

Latest leak at Japan’s Fukushima plant contaminates six workers

Workers wearing protective suits and masks are seen working at a site where radioactive water leaked at Tokyo Electric Power Co's (TEPCO) Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Fukushima prefecture
TOKYO
 – Six workers at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant were exposed to leaking radioactive water after one of them mistakenly removed a pipe to a water treatment system, the plant’s operator said on Wednesday. Tokyo Electric Power Co, also known as Tepco, has been battling to contain radioactive water at the plant, which suffered triple meltdowns and hydrogen explosions in March 2011. Regulators have criticized the utility for its handling of the problems. In the latest incident, a worker mistakenly detached a pipe connected to a treatment system to remove salt from the hundreds of tonnes of water Tepco pumps over the melted fuel in wrecked reactors at Fukushima to keep them cool. ”Several tonnes” of water spilled at the treatment facility but were contained within the site, a Tepco spokesman said. More

Israel TV: US, Iran make major progress toward nuke deal

Iran and the United States have secretly made significant progress toward an agreement that would aim to keep Iran “two or three years away” from a nuclear weapons capability, and would see an easing of economic sanctions on the Islamic Republic, an Israeli TV report said on Wednesday. The behind-the-scenes negotiations have moved a long way forward — far more than is widely thought — with Oman among the mediators, Israel’s Channel 2 news said.  “Israel knows this,” the report added. There was no confirmation of the report, which was made by the station’s Middle East affairs correspondent Ehud Ya’ari. The TV report came just a day after Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned against “a bad deal” being done with Iran, under which sanctions were eased but Iran was left with the capacity to enrich uranium and/or pursue a plutonium route to the bomb. More

FL senator wants to stop electronic scanning of K-12 students


Once considered science fiction, eye scanning and electronic fingerprinting devices are becoming more and more commonplace — even in Florida’s public schools. It’s called biometric data gathering, and some K-12 schools are using these technologies, among others, to collect students’ physical identifying information. The data collection is said to increase both school security and efficiency, but such programs also raise serious privacy concerns. “The key problem with biometric identifiers is that they’re unique and unchangeable,” said Marc Rotenberg, executive director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center, a Washington, D.C., based nonprofit. More

Deadly brain-eating amoeba found in Louisiana water system, CDC confirms

BATON ROUGE, LA. –  A rare amoeba that caused the August death of a child in south Louisiana has been found in five locations in a north Louisiana water system, state health regulators said Tuesday. The state Department of Health and Hospitals said in a news release that the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed the presence of the Naegleria fowleri amoeba in five places in DeSoto Parish Waterworks District No. 1, which is one of 14 water systems in the parish. The water system said it will begin a free chlorine burn in the system Wednesday to last for 60 days. ”We are working closely with the water system and parish officials to ensure that the chlorine levels are increased to a level that will eliminate the risk of exposure to the amoeba,” said J.T. Lane, assistant secretary of DHH’s Office of Public Health. More

 

 

One killed and several hurt in Greyhound bus wreck on I-80 near White Deer Township in Union County, Pennsylvania

A Greyhound bus accident along Interstate 80 in central Pennsylvania early Wednesday killed one person and injuring most of the others, state police said. The injured were sent to five hospitals in the area. The bus was traveling non-stop from New York to Ohio, carrying 49 passengers, a Greyhound spokesman said. Fourteen patients were reported at one hospital, and 17 at another. A portion of the interstate near the Williamsport exit was expected to remain closed until noon. CNN

Janet Yellen to be nominated U.S. Fed chair: What the analysts say

U.S. President Barack Obama will nominate Federal Reserve Vice Chairwoman Janet Yellen to be the next head of the U.S. central bank on Wednesday, a White House official said on Tuesday. If confirmed, Yellen would replace Ben Bernanke, whose current term as head of the Fed ends in January. Obama is due to make the announcement at the White House at 3 p.m. (1900 GMT). More

Military chapel closed in Georgia: ‘Shutdown: No Catholic service till further notice’

Father Ray Leonard, a Catholic priest who serves a Georgia military base, was not allowed to celebrate mass at the Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay this weekend. “Shutdown: No Catholic service till further notice,” a sign posted on the chapel said. Leonard — who is contracted with the Department of Defense to minister the military on the base — is not allowed to work on the base during the federal government shutdown. In fact, the general counsel for the Archdiocese for the Military Services USA has warned that — under current law — some military priests under contract could even face arrest if they celebrate mass or practice their faith on military bases during the shutdown. More

Michele Bachmann: Obama ‘Funding’ Terrorists Is Proof That We’re Living In The End Times

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) believes that we’re living in the End Times — and she claims to have proof. In an interview Saturday with Jan Markell on the Christian radio program “Understanding the Times,” Bachmann accused President Barack Obama of giving aid to terrorists. This, she says, is solid evidence that we have entered the Last Days. “President Obama waived a ban on arming terrorists in order to allow weapons to go to the Syrian opposition,” Bachmann said. “Your listeners, U.S. taxpayers, are now paying to give arms to terrorists including al Qaeda.”  She continued:  This happened, and as of today, the United States is willingly, knowingly, intentionally sending arms to terrorists, now what this says to me, I’m a believer in Jesus Christ, as I look at the End Times scripture, this says to me that the leaf is on the fig tree and we are to understand the signs of the times, which is your ministry, we are to understand where we are in God’s end time history. More

Jack Hayford Leads Millions in Prayer for Peace of Jerusalem

Millions of Christians united across denominational, cultural and political differences on Sunday gathered together for the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem (DPPJ) to intercede for the city God calls His own and to invoke God’s blessing, purposes and provision upon all of Jerusalem’s people. From more than 175 nations, believers gathered to pray in their worship services, in their homes, on college campuses, in regional gatherings and on a 24-hour prayer conference call. Broadcast by GOD TV to 900 million, Christians in more than 200 nations joined the DPPJ celebration at the Pavilion on Jaffa Road in Jerusalem. Pastor Wayne Hilsden, senior pastor of the King of Kings Community Jerusalem, co-hosted the event. Before the packed audience, he prayed that God would bring a peace that “was not just something agreed upon diplomatically or written on paper, but a peace beyond human understanding … a peace that only God could bring.” Special guests and speakers included Dr. Jürgen Bühler, executive director of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem; Naomi Tsur, deputy mayor of Jerusalem; Berlin-born Rev. Petra Heldt, director of the Ecumenical Theological Research Fraternity in Israel; and Rabbi Dr. Shlomo Riskin, founding chief rabbi of Efrat and chancellor of the Ohr Torah Stone Institutions. There were also Christian leaders from the Philippines, Malaysia, Australia and beyond who prayed from the platform that God would bless, strengthen, protect and prosper Jerusalem and her people. More

 

Soon, Drones May Be Able to Make Lethal Decisions on Their Own

Scientists, engineers and policymakers are all figuring out ways drones can be used better and more smartly, more precise and less damaging to civilians, with longer range and better staying power. One method under development is by increasing autonomy on the drone itself. Eventually, drones may have the technical ability to make even lethal decisions autonomously: to respond to a programmed set of inputs, select a target and fire their weapons without a human reviewing or checking the result. Yet the idea of the U.S. military deploying a lethal autonomous robot, or LAR, is sparking controversy. Though autonomy might address some of the current downsides of how drones are used, they introduce new downsides policymakers are only just learning to grapple with. The basic conceit behind a LAR is that it can outperform and outthink a human operator. “If a drone’s system is sophisticated enough, it could be less emotional, more selective and able to provide force in a way that achieves a tactical objective with the least harm,” said Purdue University Professor Samuel Liles. “A lethal autonomous robot can aim better, target better, select better, and in general be a better asset with the linked ISR [intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance] packages it can run.” Though the pace for drone strikes has slowed down — only 21 have struck Pakistan in 2013, versus 122 in 2010 according to the New America Foundation — unmanned vehicles remain a staple of the American counterinsurgency toolkit. But drones have built-in vulnerabilities that military planners still have not yet grappled with. Last year, for example, an aerospace engineer told the House Homeland Security Committee that with some inexpensive equipment he could hack into a drone and hijack it to perform some rogue purpose. More

Stand-Up Comedians Launch International Tour in Effort to Establish Atheist ‘Churches’ Worldwide

Two stand-up comedians that lead an atheist ‘church’ in the UK will be embarking on an international tour this month in an effort to establish atheist fellowships worldwide. The “40 Dates and 40 Nights” roadshow will hit 22 locations around the globe, including in the United States, where events will take place in Chicago, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Nashville, Atlanta and other major cities. As previously reported, in January of this year, stand-up comedians Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans organized a gathering, originally held at the Nave in Canonbury, called “Sunday Assembly.” As Jones is an atheist and Evans an agnostic, instead of having worship and prayer, the gathering features secular music performed by an in-house band and special speakers, such as authors and fellow comics. “It’s part atheist church and part foot-stomping show,” Jones told reporters. “We just want people to feel encouraged and excited when they leave.” More

U.S. to halt military aid to Egypt after coup, turmoil

The United States will cut off military aid to Egypt in the wake of the July coup against President Mohamed Morsy and the turmoil that has followed, a U.S. official said Tuesday. The Obama administration withheld some military aid to Egypt in August. The U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the full suspension has been prompted by an “accumulation of events,” including recent violence against protesters, dozens of whom were killed over the weekend.  The suspension will formally take effect in the coming days, the official said. The United States has not yet notified the Egyptians of the decision to cut off military aid, a senior official said. The announcement is not expected to be made on Wednesday and has already been pushed back a few times, the official said. In addition to the suspension of some military aid earlier this year, there has also been a severe slowdown in military shipments from the United States to Egypt, including F-16s. More

Billy Graham: ‘It Could Perhaps Be My Last Message’ – Turning 95

At 94, Billy Graham says he realizes his remaining time on the earth is limited. With his My Hope America project, he wants to make one last major appeal to the nation to turn from its sin and repent and for people to give their hearts to Jesus.  Graham told Newsmax that indeed this could be his final gospel outreach—a crusade via video. “It could perhaps be my last message, which is this: Christ is our hope for today and our promise for tomorrow. And it is fulfilled in the great work He did for mankind on the cross when He paid the penalty for our sin,” he said.  My Hope America is a nationwide outreach to reach people across the United States with the gospel of Jesus Christ. It implores Christians across the nation to open their homes next month to share the gospel message with friends, family, colleagues and neighbors through a series of video programs with life-changing testimonies and messages from perhaps the most beloved evangelist of our time. Graham, who has been a spiritual adviser to many past presidents and has led an estimated 3.2 million people to faith in Jesus Christ, says he believes the country has been engulfed in a “sea of immorality” and that it has “dismissed God, resulting in skewed thinking and consciences that are desensitized to right and wrong, basing moral decisions solely on what fits in with our individual preferences.”  “There was a headline recently about more Americans tailoring religion to fit their needs, mixing a little Christianity with the religions of the world,” he told Newsmax. “It is called a ‘trendy faith.’ Society does not object to this kind of faith. More

 

UK banks to stress test readiness for major cyberattack

Only days after the authorities gave UK-based banks a time limit to come up with cyberattack defence plans, details have emerged of a major stress test of current financial systems set for next month. Dubbed ‘Operation Waking Shark 2′, according to The Daily Telegraph the test day will simulate a “severe” attack on payment providers, banks and markets to sniff out weaknesses in defence strategies, communications, and procedures. This follows on from the smaller Waking Shark exercise that took place on the afternoon of 11 March 2011 which uncovered confusion about which bodies organisations should use to communicate with one another in the event of an attack. Banks were also reportedly unclear about the relative roles of the Financial Services Authority (succeeded by the Financial Conduct Authority), the Serious Organised Crime Agency (now the National Crime Agency) and the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI). More

WARS N RUMORS OF WARS: Israel’s Final Warning on Iran

With no military threat, Iran has no incentive to stop its nuclear progress. Iran might well conclude that the sanctions could disappear in the course of endless rounds of diplomacy. No one in Israel seeks war, but a central tenet of its own defense doctrine is that Israel cannot depend on any external power to deal with existential security threats. The coming weeks probably represent the last opportunity for Iran and the international community to reach an enforceable deal that will dismantle Tehran’s nuclear weapons program, before Israel concludes that time has run out, that Iran has gotten too close to creating its first atomic bombs, and that the time for a military strike has arrived. Despite Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s well-planned and deceptive charm offensive at the United Nations last week, so far not a single uranium-enriching centrifuge has stopped spinning in the underground nuclear facilities in Natanz and Qom. The heavy water plutonium facility at Arak is moving forward, and Iran has already amassed enough low-enriched uranium for the production of seven to nine atomic bombs. More

Weekend Attacks on Arkansas’ Electric Grid Leave 10,000 Without Power

More than 10,000 people in Arkansas were dumped into a blackout Sunday following an attack on that state’s electric grid, the FBI said today, the third such attack in recent weeks. In August, a major transmission line in the region, around Cabot, Ark., was deliberately cut. The FBI said that two power poles had been intentionally cut in Lonoke County on Sunday, resulting in the outage. “Though we remain confident that we will identify the person or persons responsible for these incidents,” the FBI said in a press release, “we are enlisting the public’s help to be our eyes and ears. We take threats to our power grid very seriously.” The FBI said it would pay a $25,000 reward for information about the attacks. And for good reason. The FBI suspects these attacks are linked with a third incident in September.More
