Climate change shrinking South
Florida reefs sooner than expected
Miami Herald [FL], by Jenny Staletovich    Original Article

South Florida’s shrinking reefs may be vanishing faster than expected. In a new study published Monday in the journal Global Biogeochemical Cycles, researchers found that climate-related coral erosion projected to start between 2050 and 2060 has already started near Miami. (Snip) Monday’s report comes just days after another study concluded a reef tract near Miami took a hit from another unlikely threat: the U.S. government. In its first assessment of a $205 million dredging of PortMiami, the National Marine Fisheries Service last week concluded that sediment stirred up by the work smothered and killed many of the coral near the Government Cut

This past week, a Milwaukee toddler fatally shot his mother after finding a handgun in the back seat of the car they were riding in. The case drew a lot of national attention given the unusual circumstances: Little kids rarely kill people, intentionally or not. But this type of thing happens more often than you might think. Since April 20, there have been at least seven instances in which a 1-, 2- or 3-year-old shot themselves or somebody else in the U.S. (Snip) Last year, a Washington Post analysis found that toddlers were finding guns and shooting people

Newark — The New Jersey Institute of Technology student killed inside his fraternity house early Monday morning attempted to fight off two burglars before the fatal shots were fired, NJ Advance Media has learned. According to multiple police sources who asked not to be identified because they were not authorized to speak publicly, 23-year-old Joseph Micalizzi was inside the Tau Kappa Epsilon house when the intruders entered through a rear door just after 3 a.m. After a struggle, they fired multiple shots, striking Micalizzi in the hand and head. He was pronounced dead at University Hospital shortly after 5 a.m.



Colorado Supreme Court strikes

DENVER — The Colorado Supreme Court dealt a devastating setback Monday to the state’s environmental movement by throwing out local bans on hydraulic fracturing. The courtruled that the outright ban approved in Longmont and five-year moratorium passed in Fort Collins conflict with state law authorizing and regulating hydraulic fracturing, an extraction process used by the oil and gas industry. Dan Haley, president and CEO of the Colorado Oil & Gas Association, which challenged the bans in court, called the decision “not just a win for the energy industry but for the people of Colorado who rely on affordable and dependable

A Texas high school teacher who teaches French could have to bid adieu to his job — because he doesn’t know how to speak the language. Albert Moyer has been teaching French classes at the Houston Independent School District’s Energy Institute High School for about five months, but the only word he knows how to speak is “bonjour,” students told local TV station KHOU. “I thought it was a joke, I couldn’t believe this was happening,” said Sharonda White, whose son Nathanial is in one of Moyer’s classes. Nathanial said his teacher, who only took one year of French in high school,

Politico reported today on a Florida poll conducted for a business group in the state that shows Hillary Clinton beating Donald Trump by 13 points and Ted Cruz by nine. Why is that important? Because if Clinton wins Florida and carries the 19 states (plus D.C.) that have voted for the Democratic presidential nominee in each of the last six elections, she will be the 45th president. It´s that simple. Here´s what that map would look like: And here´s the underlying math. If Clinton wins the 19 states (and D.C.) that every Democratic nominee has won from 1992 to 2012,

Sinead O’Connor made a wild claim Monday that comedian Arsenio Hall used to help Prince get as high as his heels over the years. Hall, meanwhile, scoffed at the allegation through his rep. “The statement regarding Arsenio Hall is absolutely false, ridiculous and absurd,” his publicist Traci Harper said in a statement to the Daily News. It was in a Facebook post Monday that O’Connor, 49, pointed the finger at Hall as an alleged supplier of drugs for the “Purple Rain” artist who died April 21 inside his Paisley Park mansion in suburban Minneapolis at age 57. “Two words for the DEA investigating

A Florida man was busted for a twisted terrorist bombing against a synagogue, which he wanted to be on the scale of the Sept. 11 attacks. The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s month-long sting operation against James Gonzalo Medina, 40, ended with the wannabe terrorist arrested on Friday, as he was walking toward the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center with an inert explosive, court documents revealed.

As this dystopian election campaign has unfolded, my mind keeps being tugged by a passage in Plato’s Republic. It has unsettled — even surprised — me from the moment I first read it in graduate school. The passage is from the part of the dialogue where Socrates and his friends are talking about the nature of different political systems, how they change over time, and how one can slowly evolve into another. And Socrates seemed pretty clear on one sobering point: that “tyranny is probably established out of no other regime than democracy.” What did Plato mean by that? Democracy,

Several weeks ago, James Grant, the founder and editor of Grant’s Interest Rate Observer, graced the cover of Time magazine. Here, Grant aptly warned that the United States faces perpetual low growth and an eventual dollar crisis, bringing runaway inflation, due to our crushing national debt—unless the size of government is dramatically reduced. Naturally, the Left had a conniption. Writing for Vox, with the link to an article titled “The Smug Style of American Liberalism” in view, illustrious financial mind Matt Yglesias decided that “Time magazine decided to troll economically literate Americans this week with an alarmist cover story about

Late last week President Obama announced a new push for additional federal "smart" gun technology funding. After grabbing headlines and much attention, the move received praise from gun control groups like Michael Bloomberg´s Everytown and criticism from law enforcement, the NRA and the National Shooting Sports Foundation. But an issue flying under the radar in Obama´s announcement is the Administration´s decision to move forward with gun control measures through the Social Security system. Late last year it became clear if an individuals needs financial help managing Social Security benefits, the agency can deem that person mentally unfit to purchase a firearm.

The media is abuzz about candidate Ted Cruz walking across the street today to confront a group of “pro-Trump protestors” outside one of his events.Perhaps it’s the cynic in us; perhaps it’s because we’ve followed politics closely for decades; perhaps it’s because we’ve been warning how desperate the GOPe are; perhaps it’s the unusual font on the signs; or perhaps it’s because we’ve spent time studying the maneuvers of the master contrarian designer, Lee Atwater,… but something doesn’t pass the proverbial sniff test.(Video)The decision of Ted Cruz to make this a campaign stunt has the finger prints and aura of

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency is receiving more taxpayer funds even as it expels fewer illegal immigrants, according to statistics published by the Department of Homeland Security showing that 43 percent fewer aliens were removed from the United States from 2012 to 2015. ICE deported nearly 410,000 aliens in 2012 when it received roughly $2.8 billion in taxpayer funds. In 2015, the agency expelled just 235,413 aliens but received around $3.5 billion to fund its deportation programs, according to the DHS statistics. Deportations dropped by 174,436 over the past three years despite an increase in funding totaling more than

ABC thriller Quantico took a shot at Donald Trump in Sunday night’s episode, when it was revealed that an American militia cell shouted the GOP presidential hopeful’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again,” before an attack in Chicago. In Sunday night’s episode “Drive,” FBI Agent Jordan Kent confronts agent Ryan Booth about his mysterious disappearance during a field operation in Chicago. Kent believes Booth’s sudden disappearance during the op was no accident and accuses him of being involved in an American militia’s attack in the city. “What possible reason would I have for wanting to hurt innocent people?” Booth, played

States can impose their own stiff penalties on illegal immigrants and others who steal identities to get jobs, a federal appeals court ruled Monday, upholding Arizona’s law and dealing a setback to immigrant rights advocates. The decision is yet another victory for Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and more broadly for Arizona, which has been a pioneer in trying to find ways to punish illegal immigrants, stepping into a void left by the Bush and Obama administrations. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said there are still some questions about how police and prosecutors use the identity theft laws,

The endgame of the 2016 primary campaign looms out west in California, the final big state on which the remaining presidential candidates are pinning their hopes. But to get there, they´ll first have to make it through Indiana, where things aren’t looking so good for Ted Cruz. The Texas senator is pretty nearly finished if he cannot beat Donald Trump in the winner-take-all Hoosier state, whose delegates could easily set the Republican front-runner on a glide path to clinch the nomination. Cruz has been talking confidently about winning Indiana and ultimately denying Trump the delegates he needs to win a

ISTANBUL — There is a Trump Towers building right in the heart of Istanbul, next to a main overpass that runs through the city in the ugly commercial district of MecidiyekÖy. Condominium sales have been slow. No doubt the neighborhood’s constant traffic jams cancel out the promise of a bird’s-eye view of the city for any buyer looking to spend a few million. Still, it is hard to miss the high rise. It sits close to a colossal courthouse, Çaglayan Adliyesi, where Turkey’s top journalists and academics have been facing trials for their criticism of government policies — on charges

Republican presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz on Monday argued face-to-face with demonstrators allied with Donald Trump in Indiana, trying to convert them to his camp as he furiously campaigned for the state’s primary Tuesday that threatens to doom his run. The Texas senator walked up to a half dozen protesters who were carrying blue-and-white Trump signs and shouting out “we don’t want you,” “do the math” and “time to drop out.” He attempted to convince them, as he has for voters across the Hoosier State, that Mr. Trump is a closet liberal who backs the same policies as Democratic front-runner
