Worst HAILSTORMS in 170 YEARS to hit Britain THIS weekend, Tornado Outbreak Likely

hail, hailstorm, hailstorms, hail storms, weather, weather warning, weather warning uk, met office weather warning
The UK is about to be rocked by the most frenzied and chaotic start to summer EVER as monsoons and tornadoes rage in. Ice stones the ‘size of cricket balls’ will cause devastation across the country in what forecasters fear could be the the worst hailstorms since a deadly ‘supercell’ led to hailstones leaving craters FIVE FEET deep across England 171 years ago. Temperatures are expected to rocket to an incredible 91F (32.6C) by Saturday as a swathe of roasting hot air suddenly floods the British Isles. Heavy and persistent downpours will start tomorrow with parts of the south on alert for extreme flash floods. But the really dramatic weather will start on Friday night when two ‘battling’ weather systems will fight it out over Britain. The resulting carnage will trigger tornadoes and fierce winds, enormous hailstorms and potentially DEADLY lightning strikes. The Met Office has issued a severe weather warning across virtually the entire country on Saturday and warned of major travel disruption. More


Israel Limits Security Cooperation with Russia

Israel has forfeited some US $1 billion in defense trade and dual-use development projects with Russia due to a delicately balanced foreign and export licensing policy aimed at preserving security ties with Moscow without harming vital interests of the US and its NATO allies. In interviews here, officials underscored Israel’s sovereign right and need to advance its diplomatic and security agenda through strengthened ties with Moscow, an increasingly pivotal player in the region and the world. But given ongoing US-Russian geopolitical posturing and recent tensions over Ukraine, Israel must remain sensitive to the interests of its key ally in Washington, officials here say. More


International community welcomes Palestinian unity government

The European Union and the United Nations will work with the new Palestinian unity government, on condition it sticks to the principle of peace with Israel based on a two-state solution, the bodies said on Tuesday, joining in the ranks of the US and China. The US administration has already said it would work with the unity government that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas swore in on Monday under a reconciliation deal with Hamas, an Islamist group that advocates Israel’s destruction. More

Netanyahu ‘deeply troubled’ by Obama’s decision

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu strongly criticized the Obama administration for pledging to work with the new Palestinian unity government on Tuesday, saying he is “deeply troubled” by the decision. Additionally, Netanyahu’s office threatened to levy further sanctions on the West Bank-based Palestinian Authority over its decision to reconcile with Gaza-based Hamas, which has been labeled a terrorist organization by the US, European Union, and Israel. The remarks came just one day after the US and EU stated they would recognize and continue to fund the Fatah-Hamas governing alliance, despite objections by the Jewish state. As RT reported previously, Netanyahu had urged the world to reject the unity government due to the involvement of Hamas, a group committed to the destruction of Israel. More

PROPHECY ALERT: Israel flowing with increased levels of Milk and Honey

The land of milk and honey is still living up to its name, according to data the Central Bureau of Statistics released Monday ahead of the Shavuot holiday. In 2013, total milk production in Israel stood at 1,435 million liters, a 2 percent increase over 2012. Israel’s cows remained the most productive in the world, producing an average of 11,780 kilograms of milk each. Honey production was up even more. Israel’s bees kept busy, producing 3,400 tons of the sweet stuff in 2013, a 9.7% jump over 2012 levels, which were 6.9% higher than in 2011. But while the glut of honey helped prices fall 7.8% between the end of 2012 and 2013, the price of pasteurized milk rose 5.9%. More expensive dairy hits Israeli consumers hard; dairy comprises 15.2% of households’ monthly food expenditures, making it the fourth-largest expenditure for families. More

BIRTHPANGS – Quakes are increasing, but scientists aren’t sure what it means

No, it’s not your imagination: The Los Angeles area is feeling more earthquakes this year. After a relatively quiet period of seismic activity in the Los Angeles area, the last five months have been marked by five earthquakes larger than 4.0. That hasn’t occurred since 1994, the year of the destructive Northridge earthquake that produced 53 such temblors. Over the next two decades, there were some years that passed without a single quake 4.0 or greater. Earthquake experts said 2014 is clearly a year of increased seismic activity, but they said it’s hard to know whether the recent string of quakes suggests that a larger one is on the way. More

The Secret Service is purchasing software to watch users of social networks in real time, according to contract documents. In a work order posted on Monday, the agency details information the tool will collect — ranging from emotions of Internet users to old Twitter messages. Its capabilities will include “sentiment analysis,” “influencer identification,” “access to historical Twitter data,” “ability to detect sarcasm,” and “heat maps” or graphics showing user trends by color intensity, agency officials said. The automated technology will “synthesize large sets of social media data” and “identify statistical pattern analysis” among other objectives, officials said. The tool also will have the “functionality to send notifications to users,” they said. A couple of years ago, the Homeland Security Department, the agency’s parent, got in trouble with lawmakers and civil liberties groups for a social media program that would work, in part, by having employees create fake usernames and profiles to spy on other users. More

Russian warplane nearly collides with US recon jet in ‘reckless’ intercept.

A Russian Su-27 jet flew dangerously close to a U.S. reconnaissance plane over the Pacific northeast recently in an aerial clash not seen since the Cold War. An Air Force RC-135 electronic intelligence jet was flying a surveillance run some 60 miles off the Russian Far East coast, north of Japan, on April 23 when the incident occurred, according to defense officials familiar with the incident. The Su-27 flew to follow the RC-135, and at one point rolled sideways to reveal its air-to-air missile before flying within 100 feet of the cockpit in an attempt to unnerve the crew. The showdown was video-recorded by the aircrew. More

Joel Osteen: Being Against Gay Marriage Is ‘Not My Core Message’

Pastor Joel Osteen doesn’t approve of gay marriage, but he doesn’t want that single viewpoint to define his ministry. During a conversation with Osteen and his wife Victoria Osteen about their traveling A Night Of Hope worship events, which celebrates its tenth anniversary at Yankee Stadium on June 7, HuffPost Live’s Marc Lamont Hill asked whether gay marriage is against the fundamental “rules” of Christianity. ”It would be, but I don’t really focus on a lot of those things,” Osteen said. “I try to stay in my lane of what I feel called to do. [Gay marriage] does come up in interviews and things, but that’s not my core message.” More

Israelis develop first blood test for breast cancer

After eight years of painstaking research, Israeli life-sciences company Eventus Diagnostics (EventusDx) has produced a blood test for the early detection of breast cancer. The Octava Pink test is now available in Israel and Italy, and is undergoing clinical trials to receive US Food and Drug Administration approval. This is the first blood test ever that can reveal cancer, not merely markers that might indicate cancer or something else. Its innovation also lies in its examination of antibodies in the blood to pinpoint this specific cancer. Molecular biologist Galit Yahalom — who heads the research team at the EventusDx offices and lab, located in Moshav Ora outside of Jerusalem – explains the breakthrough to ISRAEL21c. “For the last decade, we have known that there is a connection between cancer and the immune system,” says Yahalom, a 43-year-old mother of two from Modi’in who has been working on this project since its inception. More




PRESIDENT: Children pouring across Mexican border ‘urgent humanitarian situation’.

Faced with 60,000 unaccompanied children trying to cross the border illegally this year, President Obama on Monday declared it an “urgent humanitarian situation” and named a federal coordinator to make sure the children are cared for — but offered no new ideas for how to keep them from trying to enter. These “unaccompanied alien children” are the latest hiccup for an administration that has asserted the border is secure, even as it struggles to balance enforcement with humanitarian concerns.More

RUMORS OF WAR – Why China and America are Headed Toward a Catastrophic Clash

Many people find it hard to understand why China is acting the way it is in the East and South China Seas. What does Beijing hope to achieve by alienating its neighbors and undermining regional stability? Let me suggest an answer: China is trying to build what President Xi Jinping calls “a new model of great power relations.” To understand how this might be the aim of Beijing’s actions, we have to recognize that under his “new model,” Xi wants China to wield much more power and influence in Asia than it has for the past few centuries. These things are inherently zero-sum, so for China to have more power and influence, America must have less. This is what Xi and his colleagues are trying to achieve. More

Supermarkets only give 2% of unwanted food to hungry families and send the rest to be turned into biofuel because it is cheaper

Families are going hungry while supermarkets are paid public money to turn tonnes of surplus food in biofuel, a new report has revealed. Only two per cent of the estimated 400,000 tonnes of extra food produced by shops and restaurants each year is sent to charities, according to a government inquiry. The other 98% is either dumped in landfill or turned into biogas using government subsidies of up to £70 per tonne. The Parliamentary Inquiry into Hunger and Food Poverty was told millions of pounds of public money is subsidising ‘anaerobic digestion plants’ which convert food into biogas, while charities miss out. Labour MP Frank Field, who co-chaired the inquiry, has criticised the use of taxpayer’s cash to destroy edible food, branding the scheme ‘madness on stilts’. More

Conservative Presbyterian Church to Consider ‘Response to Gay Agenda’

At its annual General Assembly, the Presbyterian Church in America is considering 52 overtures or calls to action, including one “concerning same-sex marriage.” The same-sex marriage overture, which will be considered at PCA’s 42nd General Assembly (June 17-20), was summarized in the denomination’s quarterly magazine “By Faith.” “In response to an increasingly aggressive homosexual agenda, Westminster Presbytery has proposed an overture that reaffirms the PCA’s position on homosexuality,” the article stated. “The overture also issues a call to church leaders to petition the government to place restrictions on those who advance the agenda. More

Welcome to the Future of Memory Engineering

File under “things likely to make someone insane”: first having a memory switched off, just long enough to make one wonder if it was even there in the first place, and then turning it back on. The memory was there, helping in the formation of core awareness and perception, and then it wasn’t. The brain adapts to its absence, and then is forced to readapt to its reappearance. That might make for a very unique variety of torture, an absolute crisis of identity. This sort of rewiring is now possible, according to a study out this week in the journal Nature. And it doesn’t really take rewiring at all, just a beam of light. Using the relatively new techniques of optogenetics, in which animals are genetically engineered such that their brain tissue becomes sensitive to photo stimuli (lasers), it’s possible to quickly alter the neurological functioning of an animal by boosting the electrical potential between certain synapses. It’s a mechanism learned from algae, which alters its behavior in accordance with sunlight. More

Wisconsin girl, 12, stabbed 19 times; friends arrested

Two 12-year-old girls inspired by Internet horror stories are accused of luring a girl of the same age into a wooded area near Milwaukee before stabbing the victim 19 times and leaving her to crawl to her own rescue over the weekend. The victim, a 12-year-old friend of the suspects, was in stable condition at a hospital Monday, two days after a bicyclist found her on along a road in Waukesha, city Police Chief Russell Jack said. The suspects were arrested hours after the girl was found Saturday, and they were being held on preliminary charges of attempted first-degree intentional homicide. More


Manufacturing expanded in May at the fastest pace this year as American assembly-line workers responded to increased orders by cranking up production.The Institute for Supply Management’s factory index rose to 55.4 from the prior month’s 54.9. Readings above 50 indicate expansion. The release of the data, watched closely by financial markets as a gauge of the economy’s strength, was anything but smooth. Twice the Tempe, Arizona-based group had to amend its figures due to calculation errors. Factories are helping spur a second-quarter economic rebound after a slowdown in inventory-building led to the first contraction in three years. Sustained demand from consumers, combined with corporate orders for machinery and equipment, are helping propel sales at companies such as Cisco Systems Inc. More

Saturation strikes from Chinese anti-ship cruise missiles could become the biggest threat to US Navy carrier strike groups (CSG), according to a paper issued by the Center for the Study of Chinese Military Affairs at the National Defense University. The paper, “A Low-Visibility Force Multiplier: Assessing China’s Cruise Missile Ambitions,” draws from both Western and Chinese-language open source documents and concludes, “experienced Aegis warriors will respect China’s emerging capabilities.” Written by cruise missile specialist Dennis Gormley, and China military specialists Andrew Erickson and Jingdong Yuan, the paper states that, due to the low cost of developing, deploying and maintaining cruise missiles, the Chinese believe that cruise missiles possess a 9:1 cost advantage over the expense of defending against them. China assumes that “quantity can defeat quality” by simply saturating a CSG with a variety of high-speed, low-altitude, cruise missiles. More

US aims at China and Russia with the deployment of THAAD

China’s Party-run People’s Daily has criticized the potential US deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-ballistic missile defense system to South Korea as an attempt to provoke China and Russia. The United States is actually testing the reaction of China, Russia and South Korea through the deployment of THAAD to the Korean peninsula, said associate professor Han Xiandong from the China University of Political Science and Law in Beijing. The Korean peninsula is seen as a buffer zone from the perspective of the Chinese and Russian government, making such deployment very crucial to the national security of Beijing and Moscow, he added. More

Apocalyptic dust storms provide a rare glimpse into life in secretive Iran

It was a storm which swallowed a city, left four people dead and more than 50,000 without power. Pictures that emerged from a dust storm in Iran’s largest city Tehran have also provided a rare glimpse into the lives of people living in the secretive state. Social media was swamped with images and tweets of the massive dust clouds covering the capital, giving the city an almost apocalyptic-type feel as it plunged into darkness. The freak weather which struck at 5:10pm (2240 AEST) last night, sent residents dashing for cover as debris swept across streets and snapped trees as the city was hit with 110 kilometre per hour winds. More

Elliana Lucas-Jameson, Kymberley Dawn Lucas
A Florida woman allegedly murdered her former same-sex partner’s 2-year-old daughter after hearing a sermon on God’s test of Abraham when He told Abraham to make a burned sacrifice of his son, Isaac. Kymberley Dawn Lucas is also accused of trying to kill her ex-partner’s 10-year-old son before attempting to commit suicide. The sermon was preached at the Metropolitan Community Church of the Palm Beaches, where Lucas took her ex-partner’s children, Elliana and Ethan. The Sun SentinelSun Sentinel reports that Lucas, 40, gave the boy a pill dissolved in coffee, telling him it would help him grow. She gave the girl “half the pill” with water and then took her into the bathroom for a bath. More

Pastor Compares Drive-Thru Prayer to Dunkin’ Donuts Convenience

Churches have changed over the years, from offering traditional hymnal music to rock bands and contemporary worship. Perhaps one of the most interesting recent changes is drive-thru prayer. Indeed, churches are beginning to offer a new convenient form of prayer. One to do so is Hope United Methodist Church in Voorhees, New Jersey, outside of Philadelphia. ”People go to Dunkin’ Donuts for coffee, not because it’s the best coffee, but because it’s the most convenient,” says Hope’s lead pastor, Jeff Bills. “In a similar way, this is a port of entry for somebody to begin to connect with God in an intentional kind of way.” More

Legendary Coach Axed from Graduation Over Complaints About Religious Speech

 A legendary football coach has been axed from his tradition of speaking at his local high school’s graduation ceremony due to complaints over his past references to religion in his speech. Leon McCoy is considered a legend at Winfield High School in West Virginia, where his team won 41 consecutive games and maintained a 213-68-1 record. McCoy, now retired, has spoken at Winfield High School’s graduation every year for the past several years, but this year, he was not invited back. “I’m disappointed,” he told local television station WCHS-TV. “I hate to go out this way.” Principal Bruce McGrew said that he received complaints about McCoy’s speech last year, asserting that the coach was violating the separation of church and state by mentioning God in his address. While he did not like cutting McCoy from the ceremony, McGrew felt that he had to comply with the law. More


A highly radioactive substance, emitting in some places radiation 100 times the permitted amount, has been discovered in Switzerland, local media reported Sunday, adding that authorities had covered it up for 18 months. Swiss weeklies Le Matin Dimanche and SonntagsZeitung reported that federal, regional and local officials decided not to reveal the fact that they had found radium deposits in an old dump in the town of Bienne so as not to scare the 50,000 local inhabitants. More

California Baptist Church Changes Views On Homosexuality After Pastor’s Gay Son Comes Out

–  A Baptist church in California has voted to welcome the gay community despite going against the Southern Baptist Convention’s views on homosexuality. The New Heart Community Church in La Mirada, CA faced a difficult decision in early 2014 when lead pastor Danny Cortez told the congregation that his son, Drew, had come out — and that he himself no longer agreed with the church’s teachings on homosexuality. A month later the church said in a statement that it would investigate the issues surrounding same-sex marriage and vote on May 18 whether to dismiss Cortez or not. More

America’s Insatiable Demand For More Expensive Cars, Larger Homes And Bigger Debts

One of the things that this era of American history will be known for is conspicuous consumption.  Even though many of us won’t admit it, the truth is that almost all of us want a nice vehicle and a large home.  They say that “everything is bigger in Texas”, but the same could be said for the entire nation as a whole.  As you will see below, the size of the average new home has just hit a brand new record high and so has the size of the average auto loan.  In the endless quest to achieve “the American Dream”, Americans are racking up bigger debts than ever before.  Unfortunately, our paychecks are not keeping up and the middle class in the United States is steadily shrinking.  The disparity between the lifestyle that society tells us that we ought to have and the size of our actual financial resources continues to grow.  This is leading to a tremendous amount of frustration among those that can’t afford to buy expensive cars and large homes. More

DAYS OF LOT – First gay commander takes over at National Air, Space Intel Center

A Dayton native and the first openly gay commander of the National Air and Space Intelligence Center took over the top leadership post of the secretive agency that provides intelligence reports to the White House, Congress and even ground troops in combat. Col. Leah G. Lauderback, 42, became the leader of NASIC at a change of command ceremony Wednesday in front of about 700 people gathered at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. She replaces Col. Aaron M. Prupas, who leaves for a high-level defense intelligence post at the Pentagon. More

Obama set to ‘kill economy’ with 1 simple move

President Obama is moving forward with a central component of his climate-change agenda, as the Environmental Protection Agency announced Monday that carbon emissions must be reduced by 30 percent at fossil-fuel-burning power plants by 2030 to fend off the devastating effects of a changing climate. The plan is actually set to take effect next year, but EPA administrator Gina McCarthy says the administration has a “moral obligation to act.” The reduction in carbon emissions was a critical component of Obama’s “cap-and-trade” agenda that failed to pass the U.S. Senate in 2010, even with a filibuster-proof Democratic majority. This time, the administration is not involving Congress, a move that has Republicans seething. More

Former fed prosecutor: Release of prisoners impeachable offense…

Barack Obama broke a federal law that he signed just six months ago when he authorized the release of five high-ranking Taliban terror targets from the Guantanamo Bay detention center in exchange for the return of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, senior congressional Republicans claimed today. And the president may also have written a new chapter in the case for his own impeachment, according to a former federal prosecutor who helped bring the 1993 World Trade Center bombers to justice. ’The return of senior terrorists to the Taliban [is] … a “high crime and misdemeanor”,’ author Andrew C. McCarthy told MailOnline. His book ‘Faithless Execution: Building the case for Obama’s impeachment,’ is set to be published Tuesday. More


Low Level Eruption at the Pavlof Volcano

The Pavlof Volcano on the Alaska Peninsula has started erupting but it’s considered a low level eruption. The Alaska Volcano Observatory raised the volcano alert level to “Watch” on Saturday after detecting a thermal anomaly at the summit of the volcano Saturday morning. AVO issued an update Sunday afternoon confirming that the elevated surface temperatures persist at the summit of the volcano and weak incandescent glowing at the summit was observed Saturday night in the FAA web cam in Cold Bay. AVO confirms that no ash clouds have been detected in satellite images. More
