Hawaiians already on edge at the prospect of two hurricanes heading their way were rattled awake Thursday morning by a minor earthquake. A magnitude-4.5 earthquake jolted Hawaii´s Big Island only hours before two hurricanes were forecast to sweep over the islands, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. (Snip) Hawaii County Civil Defense Director Darryl Oliveira says there haven´t been any reports of damage. He said a moderate quake is ´not uncommon´ for Hawaii. [Snip] ´We have a hurricane. Now we have this on top of it. What else?´ said Walker, second assistant manager at Foodland Waimea.

What do you mean "What else?" You released Obama on us and you think you don´t deserve just a small comeuppance?

Terror experts fear Libyan fanatics are planning a 9/11 copycat attack after 11 commercial planes were stolen from Tripoli airport. They believe the jets were taken by Islamic militant groups who seized control of the war-torn capital city´s international hub. Analysts say there is "credible intelligence" that they will use next Thursday´s anniversary to fly the planes into high-profile targets. [Snip] Libyan Dawn and Ansar al Sharia - which boasts links to the Islamic State - have controlled parts of the airport. But Moroccan military expert Abderrahmane Mekkaoui said the planes were captured by a third Islamic group, the Masked Men Brigade.

These revealing images off a unique insight into the hardened Israeli battalion, mostly made up of woman, tasked with patrolling the restless Egyptian border. [Snip] Now, these images have offered an insight into what life is like within the battalion as the soldiers prepare for a graduation march near the Israeli-Egyptian border this week, near Azoz, Israel. While the unit is a mixed gender unit, in 2009, about 70 per cent of the unit was female, according to the International Business Times. The women who volunteer to join the unit go through the same examinations and challenges as exclusively male

In scenes described by ferry operators as "not unusual", dozens of illegal immigrants broke through security fencing and dodged gun wielding policemen in a bid to board Britain-bound cross-channel ferries at the French port of Calais last night. [Snip] Firstly a group of around 90--100 men made a break for the ferries by breaking through a gate and scaling fences, but were thwarted by the ferry crew raising the ramp before they could reach it. A short time later, 150 migrants made a second attempt, again scaling fences and dodging policemen, some of whom were armed with guns, before making

Nato nations have to

Nato, 65 years old this year, represents one of the most successful military alliances in history. It is a triumph of sovereignty pooled on a voluntary basis--without the need for rigid supranational structures. It is the alliance that kept at bay the Soviet Union until it collapsed under the weight of its own failings and contradictions. The result was that millions of people who had lived under oppression in Eastern Europe were able to join the free and democratic world. Nato has also acted to protect those at risk in the Balkans and in Libya, and has led an international coalition

The British way of life is under fresh threat from the EU as it targets the nation´s kettles, toasters and even lawnmowers. Campaigners last night rallied round to vent their fury as Brussels bureaucrats unveiled their latest plan to erode the "lifestyles and choices of ordinary people". It follows the banning this week of vacuum cleaners which have motors above the new EU limit of 1,600 watts in a bid to cut energy usage. The permitted wattage will be almost halved again from September 2017 as the limit is reduced to 900 watts. Dozens of other everyday appliances could have

Taliban militants have attacked an Afghan government compound in the eastern town of Ghazni killing at least 10 people, officials say. Eight security personnel and two civilians were among the dead, police say, with all 19 attackers also killed. Gunmen detonated two truck bombs as they blasted their way in to attack police and intelligence offices. More than 160 people were injured and buildings, including the town´s museum, were badly damaged. The BBC´s Bilal Sarwary in Kabul says Taliban insurgents are in control or active in many parts of Ghazni province, which acts as a gateway from the south and south-east to the capital,

Three Canadians were among the Islamist fighters who help two American journalists hostage in Syria for two years, a new report reveals. [Snip] Citing unnamed sources, the CBC reports that the Canadians forced the men to hand over their bank details, PINs and passwords then drained their accounts of their life savings. The Canadian captors then sadistically wrote emails to Mr Curtis and Mr Schriers´ friends and family claiming to be the men and begged them for their bank details. The militants then preyed on the journalists´ friends and family, as well. Schrier escaped from his al-Nusra Front prison last year after

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said Wednesday that the problem of ´foreign fighters´ aiding the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) includes far more Americans than has been previously reported--at least 100 and counting. ´We have acknowledged publicly we are aware of over 100 U.S. citizens who have U.S. passports who are fighting in the Middle East with ISIL forces,´ he said during a televised interview. ´There may be more. We don´t know.´ Earlier estimates had only about a dozen so-called ´foreign fighters´ from the United States scattered across the Middle East in ISIS army units.

U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford said Wednesday that accusations and requests made by his ex-wife Jenny in their contentious divorce, including that he undergo a mental evaluation, are "preposterous, crazy and wrong." [Snip] "The different accusations and requests made are, by their very nature preposterous, crazy, and wrong," Mark Sanford said in a statement released to The Associated Press. "Since the time of the divorce I have tried to do everything in my power to be both a good dad and a former husband. It seems that nothing I can do at this point is enough, appropriate or adequate," he said.

Republican Rep.

King, a member of the House of Representatives´ Intelligence committee and the former chair of it´s Homeland Security committee, said that ´the United States is always the main target of these terrorist organizations,´ so he is ´very concerned´ about an attack from Islamic radicals. ´And I would say, I wish our president was showing the same leadership that David Cameron showed,´ he added. ´What is President Obama

Heartening news from this morning´s Cobra meeting on the deteriorating hostage crisis in Iraq, with the Government reported to be giving serious consideration to actually doing something to prevent further atrocities being committed against Western hostages. Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond emerged from the meeting to declare that the Government is to "look at every possible option" to try to retrieve the British hostage whose life has been threatened by Islamist terrorists, who have warned that he is next on their "kill list" following the brutal murder of a second American hostage, Steven Sotloff.

President Obama said Wednesday that the federal government has authenticated a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff at the hands of Islamist militants, and the U.S. objective now is to “degrade and destroy” those militants so they no longer pose a threat to the civilized world. Speaking at a press conference alongside Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, Mr. Obama seemed to lay the groundwork for expanded U.S. action against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS.

Vice President Joe Biden delivered a passionate speech at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in New Hampshire, vowing to bring Islamic State terrorists to justice. Mentioning the deaths of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, Biden referred to the Islamic State terrorists as “barbarians” for beheading them on camera. "If they think the American people will be intimidated, they don´t know us very well,” Biden said, reminding the crowd that the United States came back after 9/11 and defeated Osama bin Laden. “When people harm Americans we don’t retreat, and we don’t forget,” he said. “They should know, we will follow them

It took the Washington Post 2,017 words and 59 paragraphs in a feature about Dorian Johnson, who initially said that his friend Michael Brown was shot in the back, to reveal that the federal government´s autopsy also reportedly did not find that to be the case. As the Post noted in its profile of Dorian Johnson, Brown´s "body had been autopsied three times — once each by St. Louis County police, a pathologist hired by Brown’s family and federal authorities.

President Obama’s spokesman emphasized that the United States tried to save journalist Steven Sotloff, who has reportedly been beheaded by ISIS terrorists. “The United States, as you know, has dedicated significant time and resources to try and rescue Mr. Sotloff,” Earnest told reporters when alerted that ISIS had claimed to have executed the kidnapped reporter. In the video, the authenticity of which Earnest could confirm, Sotloff is apparently killed by the same British jihadist who killed American photojournalist James Foley. “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State,”

FRIENDSHIP, Maine -- Imagine Cape Cod without cod. Maine without lobster. The region´s famous rocky beaches invisible, obscured by constant high waters. It´s already starting to happen. The culprit is the warming seas - and in particular the Gulf of Maine, whose waters are heating up faster than 99 percent of the world´s oceans, scientists say. Long-established species of commercial fish, like cod, herring and northern shrimp, are departing for colder waters. Black sea bass, blue crabs and new species of squid - all highly unusual for the Gulf - are turning up in fishermen´s nets. The Gulf of Maine´s warming reflects broader

Maybe the news that a second American has been beheaded will force President Obama to recognize he has no more compelling priority today than stopping the Islamic State and its bloodletting. In its latest barbarity, ISIS aimed to project American weakness to the world. Just before he beheaded Steven Sotloff, the ISIS executioner explained the butchery this way: I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State, because of your insistence on continuing your bombings.?.?. So just as your missiles continue to strike our people, our knife will continue to strike the necks of your

Over the weekend, former President Jimmy Carter addressed the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Detroit. He told the assembly that the principles of Allah will benefit the whole world. Jimmy Carter left the Southern Baptist Church a few years back, citing its “rigid” views. Muslim views tend to be a whole lot more “rigid.” For instance, Saudi Arabia doesn’t allow Christians to build any churches. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood supporters are waging pogroms against Christians. If a Muslim leaves Islam, they are called an apostate and are often marked or death. One can be an apostate just by having

Rudy Giuliani has plans to change golf. The former mayor, a strategic adviser to the PGA, says he wants to make the game “simpler” by shortening rounds to 12 holes. “We have to make it simpler and easier. Let’s shorten the course and make playing 12 holes instead of 18 holes the norm,” Giuliani declared in a Hamptons magazine cover story with golfer Raymond Floyd. “I’ve played tennis for 20 years, and I’ve never played five sets like the pros do,” he explained. “I’ll play three sets with my pals. So why play 18 holes? That’s what pros do to win tournaments.” Giuliani

The home-cooked meal has long been romanticized, from ’50s-era sitcoms to the work of star food writer Michael Pollan, who once wrote, “far from oppressing them, the work of cooking approached in the proper spirit offered a kind of fulfillment and deserved an intelligent woman’s attention.” In recent years, the home-cooked meal has increasingly been offered up as the solution to our country´s burgeoning nutrition-related health problems of heart disease and diabetes. But while home-cooked meals are typically healthier than restaurant food, sociologists Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott, and Joslyn Brenton from North Carolina State University argue that the stress that
