Worst-case global warming scenarios not credible: study

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 16:04:01 -0500

(image) Earth's surface will almost certainly not warm up four or five degrees Celsius by 2100, according to a study released Wednesday which, if correct, voids worst-case UN climate change predictions. A revised calculation of how greenhouse gases drive up the planet's temperature reduces the range of possible end-of-century outcomes by more than half, researchers said in the report, published in the journal Nature. How effectively the world slashes CO2 and methane emissions, improves energy efficiency, and develops technologies to remove CO2 from the air will determine whether climate change remains manageable or unleashes a maelstrom of human misery.

Police still baffled by discovery of 13 starved, abused siblings

(Reuters) - Police said on Tuesday they were still seeking answers after finding 13 siblings starving in their parents' squalid Southern California home, some of them chained to beds under "horrific" conditions in an otherwise ordinary suburb. "I wish I could come to you today with information that would explain why this happened," said Captain Greg Fellows of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department. "But we do need to acknowledge the courage of the young girl who escaped from that residence to bring attention so they could get the help they so needed." The parents, 57-year-old David Allen Turpin and Louise Anna Turpin, 49, were arrested at their darkened, foul-smelling house after the girl's 12 siblings were found there.

Chris Christie is the first elected NJ governor in decades who didn't break a leg during his term

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 09:06:15 -0500

Former New Jersey governor Chris Christie left office yesterday with a truly dismal approval rating. On the bright side, he also left with two intact legs! As Obama administration alum Eric Columbus pointed out on Twitter Tuesday, Christie is the first elected NJ governor in decades to leave office without having broken a leg. We don't mean in the "Break a leg!" metaphorical way, either — we mean literally sustaining harm to a bone. SEE ALSO: Chris Christie is no hometown hero for some New Jersey residents In 1999, then-governor Christine Todd Whitman "broke both bones in her lower right leg" while skiing in Switzerland. In 2004, Jim McGreevey broke his leg after a fall in Cape May, prompting days of wild rumors and conspiracy theories. And in 2007, Jim Corzine broke his leg in a car crash. (He also broke his sternum, collarbone, and several ribs.) "Because the universe is perfect," Columbus pointed out, "the Democrats broke their left legs, and the Republican broke her right leg." And while Christie didn't break a bone himself, he did shift that burden (classic!) to the former lieutenant governor, Kim Guadagno. She broke her wrist and elbow while riding a bicycle on the beach in 2014. So did Christie break the curse? Maybe. But, given his track record, we'd still recommend that incoming governor Phil Murphy avoid sports. Check out Columbus's full thread below. Congratulations to Chris Christie on becoming the first elected New Jersey governor in *decades* to leave office without breaking one of his legs! 1/ — Eric Columbus (@EricColumbus) January 16, 2018 His predecessor, Jon Corzine, broke his left leg in a high-speed car accident. 2/ — Eric Columbus (@EricColumbus) January 16, 2018 The governor elected before that, Jim McGreevey, broke his left leg walking on a beach. 3/ — Eric Columbus (@EricColumbus) January 16, 2018 And before that, Christie Todd Whitman broke two bones in her right leg skiing in Davos. 4/ — Eric Columbus (@EricColumbus) January 16, 2018 Because the universe is perfect, the Democrats broke their left legs, and the Republican broke her right leg. 5/ — Eric Columbus (@EricColumbus) January 16, 2018 Before Christie, the last elected NJ governor to avoid such a mishap was Jim Florio, who left office in 1994. 6/ — Eric Columbus (@EricColumbus) January 16, 2018 I encourage Christie not to worry about whether his reputation is still intact but instead be proud that his femurs and tibias are. 7/end — Eric Columbus (@EricColumbus) January 16, 2018 WATCH: Someone shaved Donald Trump into the back of their head and it's frightening AF[...]

The warning of robust new tactics to intercept illicit shipments of nuclear materials or sanctions-busting imports was the most concrete measure to come out of a two-day meeting to which China and Russia were not invited.

Couple’s sexless marriage is ‘weird, weird, weird’ says Yahoo Newsroom

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 14:09:58 -0500

(image) “People can do what they want. But the marriage is a joke.” “Huh? Am I missing something here?” Two friends of Tiffany Trump’s are in the spotlight after exchanging “unconditional, unconventional” vows for a sexless marriage. The story jumped to the “top-trending” category on Yahoo Newsroom, sparking thousands of skeptical comments. New York socialites Quentin Esme Brown and Peter Cary Peterson tied the knot in Las Vegas (where first daughter Tiffany served as flower girl). On social media, the best friends turned husband and wife made clear that theirs will be a sexless, open marriage. Brown explained on Instagram, “Peter and I are not romantically involved — in fact we are still dating others and will continue to seek love in all forms — we are just each other’s hearts and wish to begin our journey towards evolution.” Their nontraditional relationship status raised one question over and over in the Yahoo comments: Why bother? One especially suspicious reader guessed that it’s a “business partnership and fraud.” What do you think of a sexless marriage? Join the conversation in Yahoo Newsroom.

Sweden sends leaflets to 5m homes on how to prepare for war with Russia

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 07:23:19 -0500

(image) Sweden is preparing to issue a public information manual on what to do in the event of war, as debate in the country grows over how to deal with the threat from Russia. The brochure, due to be sent to 4.7m households, will inform the public how they can take part in “total defence” during a war and secure water, food and heating. The booklet with the working title If Crisis or War Comes will also give guidance on dealing with threats from cyber attacks, terrorism and climate change, the FT reported. Russia’s annexation of Crimea and military support for Ukrainian separatists, along with increased activity and exercises near the Baltics and Scandinavia have caused deep unease in Sweden. The neutral country has begun to reverse deep post war defence cuts and incursions by Russian planes and submarines have sparked intense public debate over whether to join Nato. Sweden has seen debate over whether to join Nato Credit:  Victor Svedberg / Regeringskansliet In September 2017, the country held its biggest military exercise in 23 years, with war games involving 19,000 Swedish personnel and allies from Finland, Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, France, Norway and America. The country last year voted to reintroduce conscription. “All of society needs to be prepared for conflict, not just the military. We haven’t been using words such as total defence or high alert for 25-30 years or more. So the knowledge among citizens is very low,” said Christina Andersson, leader of the project at the Swedish civil contingencies agency.
