PA Foreign Minister Riyad Al-Malki told AFP.“In practice by closing the office they are freezing all meetings and we are making that official.” A spokesman for the PLO confirms that it had received instructions from PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas “regarding closing down all communication lines with the Americans.”

    A black Texas congressman said Saturday that he’s been threatened with lynching by callers infuriated over him seeking impeachment of President Donald Trump. U.S. Rep. Al Green held a town hall meeting and played recordings of several threatening voicemails left at his offices in Houston and Washington, the Houston Chronicle reports . The seven-term Democrat told the crowd of about 100 people that he won’t be deterred. […] One male caller used a racial insult and threatened Green with “hanging from a tree” if he pursues impeachment. Another man left a message saying Green would be the one impeached after...

    Negotiators from more than 170 countries on Saturday reached a legally binding accord to counter climate change by cutting the worldwide use of a powerful planet-warming chemical used in air-conditioners and refrigerators. -snip-While the Paris agreement included pledges by nearly every country to cut emissions of heat-trapping carbon dioxide from the fossil fuels that power vehicles, electric plants and factories, the new Kigali deal has a single target: chemical coolants called hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs, used in air-conditioners and refrigerators.-snip-And while the Paris pledges are broad, they are also voluntary, often vague and dependent on the political will of future world...

    A 24-year-old salon manager 'froze to death' inside a cryochamber after she accidentally got locked inside the machine and temperatures plummeted to minus 240 degrees Fahrenheit. Chelsea Ake, the manager of Rejuvenice in Henderson, Nevada, was found dead inside the salon's cryochamber earlier this week by distraught employees, NBC reported. Investigators have ruled her death 'operator error.' And preliminary findings suggest that Ake may have used the machine without any assistance and may have suffocated while inside. Authorities with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration told KSNV that they believed Ake was in the chamber for at least 10 hours...
  • Greece Says That It Will Default On June 5th, And Moody’s Warns Of A ‘Deposit Freeze’

    The Greek government says that a “moment of truth” is coming on June 5th. Either their lenders agree to give them more money by that date, or Greece will default on a 300 million euro loan payment to the IMF. Of course it won’t technically be a “default” according to IMF rules for another 30 days after that, but without a doubt news that Greece cannot pay will send shockwaves throughout the financial world. At that point, those holding Greek bonds will start to panic as they realize that they might not get paid as well. All over Europe, there...

    Plummeting temperatures have broken hundreds of winter records across the country - making February one of the coldest months in history. But in New England, it has gotten so cold even the waves are starting to freeze. These incredible photos of so-called 'slurpee waves' were taken by surfer Jonathan Nimerfroh in Nantucket, Massachusetts. He took his camera out when he noticed the horizon looked strange - and then spotted the surf had turn slushy. The stunning images were taken as snow and icy rain continues to cause chaos across the country - with states of emergency being declared in the...

    More than 4,700 square miles of ice formed over the Great Lakes in just one night on Tuesday. The Arctic blast that swept the Midwest and Northeast saw a near-record amount of Lake Ontario was iced over, with just 20 per cent of open water left. Overall 82 percent of the five water bodies sealed up. Temperatures are expected to drop again on Thursday night, leading forecasters to predict that figure to climb significantly by Friday morning.

    It's not just about anti-aging. "Longevity" is the new buzzword as Hollywood embraces all sorts of technology, from an altitude machine favored by tennis star Novak Djokovic to L.A.'s hot new treatment: the very deep freeze. This story first appeared in the Sept. 19 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. "I have no intention of dying," Sumner Redstone told THR in January. Redstone, now 91, has made no secret of his longevity regime. It begins with a breakfast of goji berries, "Green Machine" smoothies and tomato juice — followed by a fish dinner and a shot of vodka for its...

    The record cold spell that has half the country in the deep freeze could cost the U.S. economy up to $5 billion. That's because millions of Americans haven't been able to drive to work, fly or take a train to business meetings or vacations, go to the shopping mall or take the kids out for a movie and a meal. And they may also have to pay more just to keep warm.

    The extreme cold has prompted the organization that operates the electrical grid serving Illinois to ask consumers to turn down the thermostat and avoid using appliances like the stove, dishwasher and laundry machine between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. The frigid weather has led to higher than normal electricity use and the call for conservation during peak hours is an effort to avoid more drastic measures, said a spokeswoman for PJM Interconnection, which coordinates the movement of wholesale electricity to 13 states including Illinois. The last time the organization asked consumers to take such...

    Perhaps you've heard it's going to be cold during today's Green Bay Packers game against the San Francisco 49ers. Perhaps you've also heard that "cold" is an understatement. Weather.com says it will feel like -17 degrees during the heart of the game. In weather like that, the beer in the stands can freeze before it's consumed. In weather like that, your hands go numb, your chest tightens, and just breathing the air can cause a burning sensation. It's just not weather designed for human beings. And, yet, they will play football in this weather, because the NFL doesn't cancel games...

    s Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu nearing his second declaration in four years on a building freeze in the West Bank in order to facilitate the renewal of peace talks with the Palestinians? The answer is probably no. An official source in Jerusalem told The Israel Post that "Abu Mazen [Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas] received this opportunity once. This will not happen again." "If the Palestinians want to talk they know we are waiting for them at the table," the source said. After four years rounds of talks in Jerusalem and Ramallah in the last two months in an effort...

    Despite the threat of a Presidential veto, on Friday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Preventing Greater Uncertainty in Labor-Management Relations Act to halt the National Labor Relations Board from issuing decisions or rulings until the U.S. Supreme Court can rule on the NLRB’s legitimacy or nominees are properly confirmed by the U.S. Senate. The bill was drafted in an effort to rein in the labor relations chaos created when Obama’s ‘recess’ appointees to the National Labor Relations Board were found to be unconstitutionally appointed by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

    According to possible new TSA rules, air travelers may be compelled to "freeze" when ordered to by screeners. The federal safety agency has yet to comment on this policy, but an airline passenger claimed agents recently practiced a drill on his wife. "We heard a "freeze, freeze" or something like this coming from the output side of security (where my wife was), followed by further barking of commands," the man said. "It turns out they were doing a new drill. They want all passengers to freeze on command. My wife told me later that she didn't follow this order fast...
