    Months of sustained downpours have battered China with floods unseen in decades, displacing millions and testing the limits of the world’s largest hydroelectric dam.Such rainfall is far from over, according to Chinese officials who, in a rare admission, said grim challenges are ahead.July and August usually bring some of the heaviest rains in China, which swell the flood-prone Yangtze River. Yet, Zhou Xuewen, the vice minister of water resources tasked with containing floods, said the rain season will continue through September, with a “very high likelihood” of severe floodings, according to a recent State Council Information Office press conference.The...

    A sheriffs deputy was shot Wednesday when a man opened fire outside a police station in Paso Robles, California, authorities said. We feel that this was an ambush that he planned, San Luis Obispo County Sheriff Ian Parkinson said. He intended for officers to come out of the police department and to assault them. The Sheriffs Department identified the suspect at 26-year-old Mason James Lira in a news release Wednesday night. He is from the Monterey area and is considered armed and dangerous, the release said. Officials conducted a widespread search of the downtown Paso Robles area earlier Wednesday, but...

    Catherine Zeta-Jones got married almost 20 years ago, but she's reportedly only just seen her entire collection of wedding photos for the first time. According to the Daily Mail, the actress revealed that she'd never seen most of the official snaps from her nuptials. Zeta-Jones allegedly said, "I looked at the proofs and that was it - I never made an album. The photographer got in touch recently, so about three weeks ago I got to see all my wedding photographs. It was a wonderful day." While it's unclear why the Oscar-winning star had waited quite so long to see...

    On Twitter, people shared screenshots of how their photos were tagged. "To be fair, 'one person, beard' is pretty much a spot-on description of me," Zack Whittaker, an editor at TechCrunch, wrote. Facebook automatically scans all photos on the social network with facial- and image-recognition software powered by AI to detect who or what is being pictured. At times, it appeared the AI incorrectly tagged the photo, as in the case of the Fortune reporter Danielle Abril's where the photo description read: "5 people, including Danielle Abril, people smiling, people standing, hoes and indoor." Hopefully there was a gardening tool...

    Waring's claims are not backed up by scientific evidence space boffins have not found any clues that there is, or ever was, intelligent life on Mars. Alien expert Nigel Watson, author of 'UFOs of the First World War, said Waring's claims were little more than fairy tale. "It is a stretch of the imagination to see this rock as representing the head of Socrates," Watson told The Sun. "Certainly Mars has not been habitable for human existence for a very long time, so it is impossible that he could have lived there or had a statue made of him...

The Irish Data Protection Commission, the body that oversees Facebooks compliance with European regulations, said on Friday that it had launched a statutory inquiry into Facebook as a result of multiple breaches the company had informed them about this year. Photos that users started to upload to Facebook but did not post could have been accessed, along with images posted to Facebook Stories, Tomer Bar, an engineering director at Facebook, wrote in a blog post.

Or maybe some time of internet "book"....your suggestions appreciated. At the same time I'm also going through trunks with old clothing, tablecloths, silver, etc....taking pictures of some, trying to decide what to save, what to give away, etc. I'm heading to Pilates, but look forward to returning and...

    Putin met the last four US presidents since he took office in the 1990s. The two leaders met again in June 2000 in Moscow after Putin became president of Russia and Clinton was in his final year in office. After Bush was sworn into office in January 2001, the two leaders met for the first time in June for a summit in Slovenia. Putin met with the recently sworn-in Obama for the first time in July 2009 in Moscow. Obama reportedly emerged from the meeting feeling confident and optimistic in resetting relations with Putin.

    Thursday evening, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) compared U.S. Customs and Border Protection confiscating items from detained immigrants crossing the border to images from Auschwitz. The pictures in the story Speier cited were from an artists exhibit using items confiscated from 2007 to 2014, mostly under the Obama administration. CBP takes away rosaries, shoes, wallets and toothbrushes from detained immigrants; what they call non-essential personal property, Speier tweeted. The images in these photos shockingly resemble the shoes collected from Auschwitz and its revolting and chilling.
