The rally will be 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 25, at the Covelli Centre. Doors will open at 4 p.m. The event was announced the same day the White House confirmed the president met with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, for a second time during the G20 early this month. The dinnertime discussion hadn’t been disclosed until Tuesday. No other American officials were there. The president called this "fake news" and "sick" on Twitter, and made the false claim that...

    The Philly Voice ^ | April 22, 2017 | Daniel Craig
    President Donald Trump plans to hold a "BIG rally" in Pennsylvania next weekend — although the exact time, place and reason for the event are not known. Trump, tweeted from his personal account Saturday afternoon that the rally would be held Saturday, April 29, without immediately providing further details. (TWEET-AT-LINK) As Politico notes, the rally will mark Trump's 100th day in office. The event also falls on the same night as the White House Correspondent's Dinner, which Trump has decided to skip, breaking years of precedent. The president spent much time campaigning in Pennsylvania, and taking the state proved a...

    per the WeaponsMan Blog: I’m sorry to have to tell you all that my brother Kevin O’Brien, host of this blog, passed away peacefully this morning at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. Let me start with some housekeeping. First, the email address hognosecommunity@comcast.net remains active and you may get more and better updates there. I say this because frankly I’m having trouble posting here. I don’t know Kevin’s WordPress password and I’m afraid that if I restart his computer, I will not be able to post any more because the password will not autofill. Therefore I can’t guarantee I...

    The Verge ^ | March 29, 2017 | Dieter Bohn
    The Samsung Galaxy S8 is the nicest phone I’ve ever held. It’s a beautiful combination of glass, metal, and an absolutely massive screen in a body that’s much smaller than you might expect. And that might not be enough to make it stand out anymore. There are two versions of the S8: the standard Galaxy S8 with a 5.8-inch screen and the larger S8 Plus with a 6.2-inch screen. Both are available for preorder on March 30th and will be shipping in the US on April 21st. Pricing, as always with Samsung, is up to the carriers — but you...

    In the LANTEX17 exercise, a magnitude 8.8 earthquake in the eastern Atlantic is simulated. Located approximately 345 miles west southwest from Lisbon, Portugal and 510 miles west of the Straits of Gibraltar at 36.0ºN, 15.0ºW, the quake sends a tsunami towards the North American east coast. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program (NTHMP) are providing the framework for the LANTEX17 tsunami exercise, which is being conducted to assist tsunami preparedness efforts throughout the Atlantic region. Recent earthquakes and their associated tsunamis, such as those in Samoa (2009), Haiti (2010), Chile(2010, 2015), and Japan (2011)...
