    FLASHBACK: That Time Omarosa Was Fired from the Clinton White House Omarosa Manigault Newman is no stranger to failing in The White House. She became well known by television viewers of NBC’s hit show “The Apprentice” with Donald Trump. Now, after being let go for personal issues, she’s using that closeness to President Trump to make millions by calling her former boss a racist and a liar. She made the situation worse by illegally recording herself insecure parts of the White House. (RELATED: Omarosa Could be in Legal Trouble Over Secret White House Recordings). But this isn’t Omarosa’s first series...

    Gore: Trump not yet as damaging to environment as he feared By Associated Press Published: 16:38 EDT, 13 August 2018 | Updated: 16:59 EDT, 13 August 2018 REENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Former Vice President Al Gore says the Trump administration has made some dangerous changes to environmental policy, though so far it's having less of an impact than he initially feared. In an interview Monday with The Associated Press in Greensboro, Gore cited the Paris Climate Accord as one example of the Trump administration failing to change environmental rules as quickly as it might want. While the United States withdrew...

    FULL TITLE: White House explodes at Omarosa's 'lack of character and integrity' by threatening national security and smuggling her smartphone into secure Situation Room to record her own firing Nine hours after former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman shocked the political world with an audiotape of her own firing made in the ultra-secure Situation Room, the Trump administration fired back at the former reality TV star. 'The very idea a staff member would sneak a recording device into the White House Situation Room, shows a blatant disregard for our national security – and then to brag about it on...

    Experts at Colorado State University predict storm activity for the remainder of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season will be "below average." Their latest report predicts the Atlantic could produce nine named storms and three hurricanes from now to the end of hurricane season, which ends Nov. 30. Of those three hurricanes, experts predict one will be a major hurricane, which means a Category 3, 4 or 5 storm on the Saffir-Simpson Scale. A Category 3 storm has wind speeds between 111 and 129 miles per hour, while the strongest Category 5 storm hits 157 mph or higher. The report, produced...

    Want to get a whole bunch of people to really, really care about climate change and rising sea levels? Tell them their internet is at risk. In a new study, researchers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and the University of Oregon found that thousands of miles of buried fiber optic cable are at risk of drowning under the rising seas. This isn’t something that will happen in the distant future, but could be a reality in just 15 years, the study suggests. Better backup your Tumblr. The peer-reviewed study combined data from the Internet Atlas, the map that keeps track...
  • Global warming? 2018 year of 'lost summer' for Arctic

    A report from Scientific American said there are problems this year for the species of shorebirds that each year descend on the Arctic to mate and raise chicks. It’s because the reproduction happens during the summer, and because of extensive July snow this year, there’s been no summer. The report said the frozen precipitation “sealed the birds off from food and nesting sites.” “Without these key resources avian migrants to the region will not reproduce in 2018, experts say.” The report elaborated that snowmelt usually allows shorebirds to begin nesting on eastern Greenland’s treeless tundra during the first half of...

    Former Vice President and climate change activist Al Gore called a new heat record set in Oman “ominous” in a tweet Saturday.“Another ominous record has been set,” Gore said. “The city of Quriyat, Oman, hit an overnight LOW of 108.7 degrees Tuesday- likely the highest minimum daily temp recorded on Earth. For those suffering from the heat in the U.S. this weekend, be safe and stay cool!”

    In the future, seas will rise far higher than they are today. The question is whether it happens quickly or slowly. There's enough ice stacked on top of Antarctica to raise seas around the globe by almost 200 feet. While it takes time for major changes to occur with that much ice, Antarctica is melting faster than we thought, according to a study recently published in the journal Nature. The melting rate has been speeding up significantly in recent years. Between 1992 and 2017, Antarctica lost more than 3.3 trillion tons of ice, causing sea levels around the globe to...

    Tipper Gore was more enraged about Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky than even Hillary Clinton, according to a new book. “Tipper Gore was furious at Bill Clinton, angrier than Hillary Clinton was,” author Kate Andersen Brower told The Post. Her new book, “First in Line: Presidents, Vice Presidents and the Pursuit of Power,” comes out Tuesday. With Lewinsky being the same age as the Gores’ eldest daughter, Karenna, Tipper “felt personally offended by the scandal,” said ex-Gore aide Jamal Simmons. The White House intern was 22 when the affair with Bill Clinton began. “In Gore’s case there’s no way...

    FULL TITLE: "Al Gore blamed Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky for costing him the presidency – but power-mad Hillary had already torn apart the president and the VP" Al Gore never forgave Bill Clinton for 'betraying' him over the Monica Lewinsky scandal and costing him the 2000 election, a new book reveals. A new book claims that Gore felt Clinton's 'impeachment cast a permanent shadow on their joint accomplishments' and ruined his chance of succeeding him as president. Gore's camp thought that Clinton 'did not want Gore to succeed' against George W Bush after he was impeached following his...

    principia-scientific.org ^ | May 29, 2018 | Herb Rose
    The greenhouse gas theory( GHGT) is a theory claiming that certain gas molecules in the atmosphere are inhibiting the Earth from transmitting heat into space. There is great debate about what role different gases play in heating and cooling and the accuracy of certain assumptions of data. It turns out that these arguments are irrelevant because the basic assumption of the theory is wrong and based on ignorance of science. Every object with a temperature above absolute zero radiates energy and every object absorbs radiated energy. Any movement of an atom creates a disturbance in the electromagnetic field that transmits...

    Credit for the initial concept that developed into the World Wide Web is typically given to Leonard Kleinrock. In 1961, he wrote about ARPANET, the predecessor of the Internet, in a paper entitled "Information Flow in Large Communication Nets." Kleinrock, along with other innnovators such as J.C.R. Licklider, the first director of the Information Processing Technology Office (IPTO), provided the backbone for the ubiquitous stream of emails, media, Facebook postings and tweets that are now shared online every day. Here, then, is a brief history of the Internet: The precursor to the Internet was jumpstarted in the early days of...

    Speaking to 2018 graduates at the University of Maryland on Sunday, it wasn’t until 19 minutes into a 22-minute speech that former Vice President Al Gore mentioned President Donald Trump’s name. But his address nonetheless marked a commencement ceremony that pushed graduates to fight what both Gore and university President Wallace Loh described as challenges to American democracy. Gore, nowadays best known for his advocacy to fight global warming that earned him a Nobel Prize in 2007, urged the graduates to vote in large numbers in the coming years, suggesting that America’s “experiment” with the Trump administration should, like some...

    Meteorological authority prepares draft law to ban unauthorised forecasts Donald Trump may routinely rail against the “fake news media”, but Egypt is going one better by cracking down on “fake” weather reports. The head of the Egyptian Meteorological Authority has said it is the only government body authorised to make predictions about the country’s weather, and is preparing a draft law to ban unauthorised forecasts. Ahmed Abdel-Al, the EMA chairman, said during a television interview that the bill seeks to punish anyone “talking about meteorology, or anyone using a weather forecasting device without our consent, or anyone who raises confusion...
