Evidence of Sodom? Meteor blast cause of biblical destruction, say scientists | The Times of Israel

A multi-disciplinary team of scientists has a new theory for why all human civilization abruptly ended on the banks of the Dead Sea some 3,700 years ago. According to analyzed archaeological evidence, the disaster of biblical proportions can be explained by a massive explosion, similar to one recorded over 100 years ago in Russia.

Trump Postpones Denmark Visit

WASHINGTON—President Donald Trump on Aug. 20 called off a visit to Denmark scheduled for early September after the country’s prime minister rebuffed his idea of purchasing Greenland.

Denmark is a very special country with incredible people, but based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’s comments, that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland, I will be postponing our meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time,” Trump said in a post on Twitter.

Russell Simmons surfaces in the Hamptons after fleeing to Bali post-rape accusation

He’s been spending time on the Indonesian isle since February 2018. He’s been accused of misconduct — including rape — by more than 10 women. In April, the Blast obtained documents from a Jane Doe rape accuser who claimed, he’d “fled to Indonesia which has no extradition treaty … in an apparent attempt to protect himself.”

Paging Big Brother: In Amazon’s Bookstore, Orwell Gets a Rewrite – ENM NEWS

I started browsing Orwell on Amazon after writing about the explosion in counterfeit books offered by the retailer. The fake books appeared to help Amazon by, for example, encouraging publishers to advertise their genuine books on the site. The company responded in a blog post that it prohibits counterfeit products and has invested in personnel and technology tools including machine learning to protect customers from fraud and abuse.

On Sunday, Amazon said in a statement that “there is no single source of truth” for the copyright status of every book in every country, and so it relied on authors and publishers to police its site. “This is a complex issue for all retailers,” it said. The company added that machine learning and artificial intelligence were ineffective when there is no single source of truth from which the model can learn.

He’s 26 years old but still sees a pediatrician: Why some young adults don’t move on. 

When Joann Alfonzo, a pediatrician in Freehold, N.J., walked into her office recently she mentally rolled her eyes when she saw her next patient: a 26-year-old car salesman in a suit and tie.”That’s no longer a kid. That’s a man,” she recalls thinking.

Yet, Alfonzo wasn’t that surprised. In the past five years, she has seen the age of her patients rise, as more young adults remain at home and, thanks to the Affordable Care Act, on their parents’ health insurance until age 26.

“First it was 21, then 23 and now 26,” Alfonzo says. “A lot of them can’t afford to live on their own and get their own insurance, or even afford the co-pay. And if insurance is offered at work, there’s generally a cost share involved, if insurance is provided at all.”

Cuccinelli: People Applying For Green Card Must Be Self-Sufficient, Not In Need Of Public Assistance

This spirit has also been rooted for over a century, well over a century in our immigration laws going back to the 1800s. Since 1996 the law has required foreign nationals to rely on their own capabilities and the resources of their families, sponsors, and private organizations in their communities to succeed. However, Congress has never defined the term public charge in the law, and that term hadn’t been clearly defined by regulation. Well, that is what changes today with this rule.
