New eruption at Hawaii's Kilauea volcano sends up 30,000-foot ash plume; residents told to 'shelter in place' | 17 May 2018 | An explosive eruption at Hawaii's Kilauea volcano early Thursday created an enormous ash plume that prompted the closure of schools and forced residents to remain indoors as a light ash rained over the surrounding area on the eastern edge of the island.

Poisoning fears as Japan plans to use radioactive Fukushima soil to build roads

Poisoning fears as Japan plans to use RADIOACTIVE Fukushima soil to build roads | 29 April 2018 | There are fears people could be poisoned amid plans to use radioactive soil from Fukushima to build roads. The country’s Environment Ministry wants to use the radiation-tainted material to rebuild a number of roads in the region that was devastated by a tsunami in 2011. But the proposal has sparked fury among residents over fears they could be poisoned by the soil. A briefing about the plans on Thursday saw angry scenes erupt, with locals in the city of Nihonmatsu yelling about how the roads will be "contaminated". Fears have even been raised about radiation from Fukushima entering the food chain and poisoning people. In the last two years, highly-toxic Cesium-134 -- the "fingerprint" of Fukushima -- has been found in certain locations along the US west coast.

Giuliani: Mueller's team told Trump's lawyers they can't indict a president | 16 May 2018 | Special counsel Robert Mueller's team has informed President Donald Trump's attorneys that they have concluded that they cannot indict a sitting president, according to the President's lawyer.

That conclusion is likely based on longstanding Justice Department guidelines. It is not about any assessment of the evidence Mueller's team has compiled.

Senate votes to save net neutrality rules

Senate votes to save net neutrality rules | 16 May 2018 | The Senate on Wednesday voted to reinstate the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) net neutrality rules, passing a bill that has little chance of advancing in the House but offers net neutrality supporters and Democrats a political rallying point for the midterm elections. Democrats were able to force Wednesday's vote using an obscure legislative tool known as the Congressional Review Act (CRA). CRA bills allow Congress, with a majority vote in each chamber and the president's signature, to overturn recent agency moves. Three Republicans -- Sens. Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and John Kennedy (La.) -- joined the 49 Senate Democrats to pass the bill 52-47.

N Korea: No interest in summit based on 'one-sided' demands

N Korea: No interest in summit based on 'one-sided' demands | 16 May 2018 | North Korea has said it has no interest in meeting the US if their summit is based on "one-sided" demands to give up nuclear weapons. First vice foreign minister Kim Kye Gwan said that if the US "corners us and unilaterally demands we give up nuclear weapons we will no longer have an interest in talks and will have to reconsider whether we will accept the upcoming DPRK-US summit". The US-North Korea summit, a historic meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un, is scheduled for 12 June in Singapore. But it now looks to be under threat, with North Korea apparently losing its patience. On Tuesday night, the North announced it was scrapping high-level talks with South Korea, blaming the South's military drills with the US, which began a few days ago.

Mueller may have a conflict - and it leads directly to a Russian oligarch

Mueller may have a conflict - and it leads directly to a Russian oligarch | 14 May 2018 | Special counsel Robert Mueller has withstood relentless political attacks, many distorting his record of distinguished government service. But there's one episode even Mueller's former law enforcement comrades -- and independent ethicists -- acknowledge raises legitimate legal issues and a possible conflict of interest in his overseeing the Russia election probe. In 2009, when Mueller ran the FBI, the bureau asked Russian businessman Oleg Deripaska to spend millions of his own dollars funding an FBI-supervised operation to rescue a retired FBI agent, Robert Levinson, captured in Iran while working for the CIA in 2007. Yes, that's the same Deripaska who has surfaced in Mueller's current investigation and who was recently sanctioned by the Trump administration...One agent who helped court Deripaska was Andrew McCabe, the recently fired FBI deputy director who played a seminal role starting the Trump-Russia case, multiple sources confirmed.

Hawaii braces for major volcano eruption, prepares for possible evacuation of 2,000

Hawaii braces for major volcano eruption, prepares for possible evacuation of 2,000 | 12 May 2018 | With scientists warning that a steam-driven volcanic eruption could occur virtually without warning, the Hawaii National Guard is prepared to use ground convoys and even helicopters if necessary to pluck hundreds of residents from an isolated southeast corner of Hawaii's Big Island. The danger comes from the lava level that is dropping inside the volcano. If it falls below the water table, water will pour onto the lava, generating steam that will likely explode from the summit in a shower or rocks, ash and sulfur dioxide gases. Hawaii Civil Defense officials says boulders as big as refrigerators could be tossed a half mile, and ash plumes could sore as high as 20,000, spread over a 12-mile area.
