Hillary Clinton says she never meant to cause offence by claiming white women voted Republican because of their husbands

Sun, 18 Mar 2018 18:39:53 -0400

(image) Hillary Clinton has been forced to publish a lengthy explanation for recent comments that attracted the ire of Republicans and Democrats for suggesting that white women often voted the same way as their husbands. During a trip to India, she also described how her voters tended to come from more wealthy areas than Trump voters. Her candid views were reminiscent of the moment during the election campaign when she described Trump supporters as “deplorables”. She took to Facebook at the weekend to say: 'I understand how some of what I said upset people and can be misinterpreted. I meant no disrespect to any individual or group. “And I want to look to the future as much as anybody.” Profile | Hillary Rodham Clinton The White House had earlier criticised her comments. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the president’s spokeswoman, said last week: “She is completely disconnected from the American public and certainly I think shows her disdain for the millions and millions of Americans who came out and voted and supported President Trump and still support him today.” Some Democrats also expressed concern that she had spoken out at a time when they needed to win over Trump supporters ahead of November’s mid-term elections. In particular she said the the party struggled to attract married, white women because of "a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should". However, in her explanation, Mrs Clinton said she had been asked whether Mr Trump was a “virus” or if his election was a symptom of some deeper problem in the US. Her response, she said, was simply part of an attempt to analyse the election results. hillary clinton style in pictures “Like most Americans, people overseas remain shocked and dismayed at what they are witnessing daily,” she wrote. “My first instinct was to defend Americans and explain how Donald Trump could have been elected.” People doing better economically tended to vote Democrat, she wrote, while those with less faith in the future tended to go Republican. “That doesn't mean the coasts versus the heartland, it doesn't even mean states,' she said. 'In fact, it more often captures the divisions between more dynamic urban areas and less prosperous small towns within states.” She continued to say that there was some research to suggest that women can be swayed more by men than the other way around. “As much as I hate the possibility, and hate saying it, it’s not that crazy when you think about our ongoing struggle to reach gender balance – even within the same household,” she wrote.

Massive volcano described in apocalyptic poem ushered in Christianity for Iceland's Vikings

Sun, 18 Mar 2018 20:01:00 -0400

(image) A massive volcanic eruption helped convert Iceland's Vikings to Christianity more than a thousand years ago, according to new research. Memories of the largest lava flood in the history of Iceland, recorded in a medieval poem, were used to drive the island's conversion to Christianity, suggests the study. A team of scientists and historians, led by Cambridge University researchers, has used information contained within ice cores and tree rings to accurately date the massive eruption, which took place soon after the island was first settled. Having dated the eruption, the researchers found that Iceland's most celebrated medieval poem, which describes the end of the pagan gods and the coming of a new, singular god, describes the eruption and uses memories of it to stimulate the Christianisation of Iceland. The eruption of the Eldgjá in the 10th Century is known as a lava flood: a rare type of prolonged volcanic eruption in which huge flows of lava engulf the landscape, accompanied by a haze of sulphurous gases. Iceland specialises in this type of eruption - the last example occurred in 2015, and it affected air quality hundreds of miles away in Ireland. An Icelandic lava flow Credit: Telegraph The Eldgjá lava flood affected southern Iceland within a century of the island's settlement by Vikings and Celts around 874. But until now the date of the eruption has been uncertain, hindering investigation of its likely impacts. Scientists say it was a "colossal" event with around 20 cubic kilometres of lava erupted - enough to cover all of England up to the ankles. The Cambridge-led team pinpointed the date of the eruption using ice core records from Greenland that preserve the volcanic fallout from Eldgjá. Using the clues contained within the ice cores, they found that the eruption began around the spring of 939 and continued at least through the autumn of 940. At a glance | Deadliest volcanic eruptions Study first author Dr Clive Oppenheimer, of Cambridge's Department of Geography, said: "This places the eruption squarely within the experience of the first two or three generations of Iceland's settlers. "Some of the first wave of migrants to Iceland, brought over as children, may well have witnessed the eruption." Once they had a date for the eruption, the team then investigated its consequences. First, a haze of sulphurous dust spread across Europe, recorded as sightings of an exceptionally blood-red and weakened Sun in Irish, German and Italian chronicles from the same period.

Jim Carrey's portrait of 'monstrous' Sarah Huckabee Sanders gets ripped apart on Twitter

(image) Actor Jim Carrey is being slammed on social media for sharing a portrait of a person many assumed to be White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. SEE ALSO: Basically just four minutes of Jim Carrey falling down repeatedly Carrey shared the sketch on Twitter on Saturday with the caption, "This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!" This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous! — Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) March 17, 2018 A Carrey spokesperson confirmed to Mashable that the "sketch" was Carrey's handiwork, but could not confirm that the person portrayed was Sanders.  Meanwhile, Twitter users (and probably bots) — particularly supporters of the Trump administration — did as they always do, cracking back on Carrey for his portrayal of Sanders and his criticism of Christians.  Oh Jim, can't you see, you're overacting again!
