Draining Lakes Are Making Greenland’s Ice Sheet Unstable And Putting Coastal Cities At Risk

Drones capable of operating in extreme Arctic conditions have given scientists an unprecedented view of how Greenland’s meltwater lakes drain, helping to explain why so much ice was lost this year. The results suggest most predictions for sea level rise may be too optimistic. As the world heats up, it is inevitable the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica will lose volume, raising the height of the oceans. However, the speed with which this will occur remains a topic of much uncertainty; estimates range from disturbing to apocalyptic over the next few decades. For greater precision, we need to understand better the behavior of the water that melts on the ice sheets’ surface. We know lakes form in the summer, but the water that stays there …

READ: House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler’s opening statement for impeachment hearing

Washington (CNN)The House Judiciary Committee held its first impeachment hearing into President Donald Trump on Wednesday. Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, a Democrat from New York, led the hearing. “That call was part of a concerted effort by the President, and by his men, to solicit a personal advantage in the next election—this time, in the form of an investigation of his political adversaries by a foreign government. “To obtain that private, political advantage, President Trump withheld both an official White House meeting from the newly elected president of a fragile democracy and vital military aid from a vulnerable ally. “When Congress found out about this scheme and began to investigate, President Trump took extraordinary and unprecedented steps to cover up …

Ayesha Curry reveals what’s on her family’s Thanksgiving menu this year

(CNN)If you’re still trying to decide what to whip up this Thanksgiving, Ayesha Curry has a bit of inspiration for your feast.

Curry, who plays for the Golden State Warriors, will reportedly be out for three months due to the injury. “It’s going to end up being the smallest Thanksgiving we’ve ever had at home,” Curry told CNN. “We …

Possible impeachment witness Kupperman tries to keep lawsuit afloat

Washington (CNN)Attorneys for Charles Kupperman, the former deputy national security adviser who hasn’t testified about President Donald Trump and Ukraine after he tied up his House subpoena in court, are doing what they can to keep his lawsuit alive. “Even if the House Defendants are immune from suit, the Speech or Debate Clause does not here apply to the Sergeant-at-Arms,” Kupperman’s attorney, Charles Cooper, wrote on Wednesday. He notes the White House has no opinion on whether Irving should be added to the case, but the House might respond at a later time. Kupperman had already sued the chairs of the House investigative committees, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Trump. Kupperman filed his case after receiving a House subpoena and …

Wealthy US donors gave millions to rightwing UK groups

Revelations raise questions about influence of foreign funding on British politics Eleven wealthy American donors who have given a total of more than $3.7m (2.86m) to rightwing UK groups in the past five years have been identified, raising questions about the influence of foreign funding on British politics. The donations have been given to four British thinktanks that have been vocal in the debate about Brexit and the shape of the UKs future trade with the EU, and an organisation that claims to be an independent grassroots campaign representing ordinary British taxpayers. Many of the donors have also given significant sums of money to a series of like-minded American groups which, like the British organisations, promote a free market agenda …

Trump vows not to change the name of Thanksgiving despite cries from the ‘liberal left’

“It was a beautiful, beautiful thing. We gave a pardon because we’re going to take care of our warriors,” Trump said. “I will always stick up for our great fighters. People can sit there in air-conditioned offices and complain.” He also accused “the radical left Democrats” of “trying to rip our nation apart,” first with the “Russia hoax” and now with House impeachment hearings.

Oof, it has been a long time since we’ve seen a TV interview this cringeworthy — certainly from Ellen DeGeneres!

Its Been 25 Years Since California’s Prop. 187but It Never Really Went Away

In the Southwest, every quarter-century or thereabouts, Mexican-Americans get messed with by the White Man. Thats what I plan to tell my kidsages 10, 12, 14when the time comes to have the race talk. Before they graduate high school, I intend to lay out the facts of life for the estimated 30 to 35 million Mexicans and Mexican-Americans in this country. They should know that, as U.S. citizens, they live in the greatest country in human history, that they have unlimited opportunities, that hard work and perseverance pays off, and that they should avoid playing the victim. But they should also be aware thatalong with the constant annoyance of being of two worlds but belonging to neither, the oddity of …

Right-wing comedian’s attempt to debunk Epstein’s suicide backfires

Last night, Steven Crowder live streamed an attempt to recreate Jeffrey Epsteins suicide. The right-wing comedian, who has spent months promoting the conspiracy theory that Epstein was actually murdered, claimed he was going to prove whether it was possible for the billionaire sex offender to kill himself in the manner alleged. Crowder spent days hyping the episode, claiming that for his investigation, he was going to try to break my neck and was really sticking my neck out. He also said that his team had built a replica of the cell in which Epstein spent his final moments. Think Epstein killed himself? We investigate!

Climate Change Could Make Antarctica Fertile Ground For Invasive Species

Most of the Antarctic continent is constantly covered in ice but a tiny fraction experiences snow melts during spring. This melting allows a variety of plants, animals, and other organisms to flourish in the short warmer months. But this rich biosphere is under threat. Researchers have published a report that shows that climate change will prolong the time these areas of the continent are thawed and this will allow invasive species, more adapted to a milder climate, to easily expand in this delicate ecosystem. The work is published in Science Advances. If the rate of warming stays the same, experts believe that the ice-free area in the Antarctic Peninsula will triple in the next 100 years. And that’s because, luckily, the southern …

Is The Weeknd Releasing A Song About Selena Gomez? The Evidence | Betches

Right off the heels of Selena Gomez releasing View this post on Instagram A post shared by The Weeknd (@theweeknd) on lyrics like “We found each other/I helped you out of a broken place/You gave me comfort/But falling for you was my mistake” (perhaps referencing how Selena and The Weeknd dated post-breakup with Justin Bieber and while Selena needed a kidney transplant); “Ooh, when no one know what love is/And I know it ain’t you for sure/You’d rather something toxic/So, I poison myself again, again/’Til I feel nothing” (probably alluding to her desire to get back with Bieber even though he objectively sucks for her); and my personal favorite, “I said I didn’t feel nothing, baby, but I lied/I almost …
