Another wrote that “Israel has hypnotized the world” with its “evil doings.” Still another helped write a scathing book on relations between the United States and Israel, while Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a progressive political star expected to win a House seat in New York, condemned the “occupation of Palestine.” A cluster of activist Democrats — most of them young, most of them cruising toward House seats this fall — has dared to breach what has been an almost inviolable orthodoxy in both … [Read more...] about A New Wave of Democrats Tests the Party’s Blanket Support for Israel
By Mitch Phillips PARIS (Reuters) - A new cuddly, feely Tiger Woods was on display for the media on Tuesday, but after professing his delight at making the team and thanking his captain for picking him, the mask eventually slipped to reveal a chilling reminder of Tiger Mark I. Woods' triumph on Sunday in the PGA Tour Championship, his first since 2013, has catapulted him spectacularly back into the limelight and, after missing the last two editions of the Europe v U.S. showdown, he is once again the centre of attention in Paris. In his devastating pomp, Woods had an aura that left many rivals defeated before they walked on to the first tee – though that all too rarely translated into Ryder Cup success. In the last few years, however, as injury and personal issues sidelined him, a new generation of young players have taken over the game, respecting what they thought was his legacy but certainly no longer fearing the 42-year-old. Now, having bared his teeth again to give them a … [Read more...] about A taste of his Sunday best whets Woods’ appetite for battle
Jae C. Hong and Audrey Mcavoy Associated Press Published 11:20 p.m. UTC May 22, 2018 Pahoa, Hawaii – The eruption of Kilauea volcano in Hawaii sparked new safety warnings about toxic gas on the Big Island’s southern coastline after lava began flowing into the ocean and setting off a chemical reaction. The molten rock started pouring into the sea over the weekend. It’s been generating plumes of lava haze or “laze” as it interacts with seawater. It’s just the latest hazard from a weeks-old eruption that has so far generated earthquakes and featured gushing molten rock, giant ash plumes and sulfur dioxide. The eruption has destroyed more than 40 buildings forced more than 2,000 people to evacuate. On Monday, lava entered and then stalled on the property of a geothermal plant near one of Kilauea’s new volcanic vents. Officials earlier this month removed 50,000 gallons of stored flammable gas from the plant to reduce the chance of explosions. … [Read more...] about Hawaii volcano generates toxic gas plume called laze
