    Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said Thursday that inflation will 'certainly' come down by next year, but denied the country was entering a recession because the labor market is so 'tight.'  'A full-scale recession is a period when there's excessive unemployment. You don't have a strong labor market,' Yellen said during an appearance at the Atlantic Festival in Washington. 'We have really one of the tightest labor markets right now we've had in American history.' She was asked by the Atlantic's Ron Brownstein if inflation would be in control by the end of next year - or if it could become a theme during the 2024 presidential election.  'I believe it's going to come down, certainly next year,' she told Brownstein. 'Let's be clear that there are risks.'  The example she gave was whether Russian President Vladimir Putin kept up his assault on Ukraine.  'I think it will be better,' she said. 'Perhaps we will get through next year, but I certainly expect to see inflation come down.'  Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said Thursday that inflation will 'certainly' come down by next...
    The woke mob descended on Queen Elizabeth mere minutes after news of her tragic death broke on Thursday afternoon. Critics were quick to call the late-queen a colonizer who wrought oppression across the world during her historic 70-year reign. The charge was led by University of Michigan professor of English Ebony Elizabeth Thomas who said thoughts of Diana and Meghan Markle were keeping her from shedding a tear for the fallen monarch. 'At this moment, the thought of Diana and Meghan are keeping my eyes completely dry,' she wrote in reference to the reported poor treatment of the two women who married into the House of Windsor, 'I'm surprised. I tend to weep even for personal enemies and structural oppressors, and US media, entertainment, and education has gilded her. But... yeah.' The tweet was joined by a chorus of right-on Twitter commenters who echoed her in agreement while suggesting the Queen was a harbinger of evil.  Thomas began her barrage on the queen earlier in the day as news of her poor health began to swirl.   'Telling the colonized how they...
    Tropical Storm Earl strengthened into the season's second hurricane on Tuesday night and is predicted to intensify into a major storm by the weekend. The National Hurricane Center said in an 8 p.m. update that Earl had top sustained winds of 80 mph, was 550 miles south of Bermuda, and was heading north at 6 mph. While the storm is expected to curve away from the US and out into the Atlantic Ocean, it could first impact Bermuda. Hurricane-force gusts up to 30 miles from Earl's center were recorded, NHC said. The center of the storm is expected to pass over Bermuda Thursday night.   Earl began to form on Friday, east of the Northern Leeward Islands in the Caribbean. While the storm has been on a path toward the East Coast, forecast models call for Earl to curve away from the US. Meanwhile, three other storm systems are being closely watched, including Hurricane Danielle - the season’s first hurricane which developed last week, after August finished with no named storms for the first time in decades.  Tropical Storm Earl strengthened into the season's second...
    A fisherman had a miraculous rescue after surviving 11 days adrift in a freezer which he clambered into when his boat began to sink in the Atlantic.  Romualdo Macedo Rodrigues, 44, left Oiapoque, Amapa state, northern Brazil in late July in a wooden boat approximately seven metres (23 feet) long to go to Ilet la Mere. According to Brazilian media, he planned to spend a few days fishing but his boat began to take on water during his trip and sank. In a bid to survive, the 44-year-old climbed into a freezer which he had on board. Mr Rodrigues spent his time adrift without food or water and believes that he lost around five kilograms during the 11 days. He said: 'What troubled me most was the thirst. This fridge, for me, was God. A miracle.' Footage taken on 11 August shows when he was rescued, exhausted and tumbling onto the floor of a Surinamese fishing vessel, 450 kilometres (280 miles) from where his boat sank.  Dehydrated, disorientated and sporting torn clothes, the man also had sunstroke and pleaded with his...
    Two weather systems over the Atlantic Ocean could possibly turn into the season's next major tropical storm or hurricane, with one of them given an 80% chance to form in the next five days. While tropical depressions can be hard to predict at such an early stage, models have indicated one of the systems, if it were to gain power, could head for Bermuda and then possibly the US' East Coast. The potential storms come as the Atlantic hasn't had a storm all August, marking it as one of the calmest periods in history during a month that typically spawns the most storms and hurricanes. One reason for the lack of storms can be attributed to the Sahara Desert in Africa, as dust from the desert is swept across the Atlantic ocean, creating dryer air that makes it harder for storms to form.  The mass of dust, called the Saharan Air Layer is about two miles thick and sits one mile above the Earth's surface, and is known to be responsible for stunning sunsets and sunrises due to light bouncing...
    Three potential hurricanes could hit the United States in September after only the third hurricane-free August in 60 years. The nearest storm as of Monday was described by the National Hurricane Center as being in the Central Tropical Atlantic, and they estimate the chance of it becoming a hurricane within five days at 80 percent. Two more follow: one 600 miles east of Bermuda as of 2pm EDT on Monday, given a 10 percent chance of becoming a hurricane, and the third off the west coast of Africa, given a 30 percent chance of strengthening to a hurricane in the next five days. A fourth storm is being monitored, heading towards Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, but is not expected to hit the U.S.  The last named storm to hit the U.S. was Tropical Storm Colin, which landed in the Carolinas on July 2. Four storms are currently in the Atlantic - three of them potentially headed towards the U.S. Pictured is the storm currently in the Central Tropical Atlantic, with an estimated chance of it becoming a hurricane within five days at...
    A mysterious crater found in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of west Africa may have been left by the baby cousin of the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs 66 million years ago, scientists say. Dubbed the Nadir Crater, the new feature was discovered 248 miles (400km) off the coast of Guinea in west Africa. It sits around 1,000ft (300m) below the seabed and has a diameter of 5.2 miles (8.5km). The impact site is not as big as the Chicxulub crater in Mexico, which was left by the asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs, but it is of a very similar age. It has raised questions about whether Earth was hit by more than one space rock during that cataclysmic period in natural history. If confirmed, it would also be of great scientific interest, because it would be one of a small number of known marine asteroid impacts, so may offer new insights into what happens during such a collision. The depression was identified by Dr Uisdean Nicholson, from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, who has been analysing seismic survey data...

    Left-wing CNN host Don Lemon recently asked White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre whether the president possesses the physical and mental stamina to serve beyond 2024. "I can't even keep up with him," Jean-Pierre said. "That is not a question that we should be even asking. Just look at the work that he does." \u201cDON LEMON: "Does the president has the stamina, physically and mentally, do you think to continue on even after 2024?"\n\nKARINE JEAN-PIERRE: "That is not a question that we should be even asking"\u201d — RNC Research (@RNC Research) 1655176475 "The presidency is a monstrously taxing job and the stark reality is the president would be closer to 90 than 80 at the end of a second term, and that would be a major issue," David Axelrod said, according to the New York Times. "Biden doesn't get the credit he deserves for steering the country through the worst of the pandemic, passing historic legislation, pulling the NATO alliance together against Russian aggression and restoring decency and decorum to the White House," Axelrod said.

    A daredevil father will sail 1,900 miles across the Atlantic Ocean in a tiny 3ft3in (1metre) boat he built himself, as he audaciously attempts to break a world record.  Andrew Bedwell, 48, who will set off from Newfoundland, Canada, next May, hopes to smash the record for sailing the smallest boat to cross the Atlantic.  He compared the journey to being 'stuck in a wheelie bin, on a rollercoaster for 90 days'. The mariner came up with the idea after reading a book by current record holder Hugo Vihlen, who made the perilous passage in a 5ft4in (1.6m) boat 30 years ago. Andrew Bedwell, 48, from Lancashire, hopes to sail 1,900 miles in his tiny 3ft3in boat Andrew's journey will see him sail from Newfoundland, Canada to Lizard Point, Cornwall  His fibreglass boat - which is half a metre shorter and has a top speed of 2.5mph - is a modified version of a ship that another ex-record holder, Tom McNally, designed.  RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 2 Next Move over Miami Beach!

    Friends of a teen who was kidnapped and murdered in 1966 have investigated the disappearance of Danny Goldman, pictured, who was 17 at the time The sudden disappearance of a teenager from Florida in 1966 has finally been solved by his friends, 56 years later. Danny Goldman was 17 when he was kidnapped from the family home in Surfside, Florida while he slept.  An armed assailant came in through a door which was unlocked, tied up his parents and held him for a $10,000 ransom. After taking their only son away, the kidnapper then demanded $25,000 in exchange for Danny, who he tied up with rope and tape and bundled him inside his car. The vehicle was found abandoned days later and Danny was never seen again.  Despite the intervening decades, the childhood friends continued to think about the case and over the course of about 10 years managed to gather enough evidence and background information that Florida authorities also  joined in the investigation.  A letter from Danny's mother, Sally, spurred the friends into digging deeper into his disappearance and...

    A BOMB cyclone snowstorm could bring dangerous conditions to the East Coast by this weekend, forecasters warn. Areas of New England could be buried under a foot of snow while part of the mid-Atlantic could also see heavy snowfall, AccuWeather reported. 2The snowstorm is set to hit the East Coast this weekend The warning comes as forecasters expect the storm to form off the coast of the Carolinas late Friday then "rapidly intensify" as it parallels the coast. Combined with a blast of chilly air from the jet stream, the stage will be set for a possible "high-impact" winter storm, the Weather Channel reported. Heavy snow, ice, strong winds, and flooding are all possible as forecasters zero in on the storm's path. 'BOMB CYCLONE' Forecasters say it's likely the storm will grow into a bomb cyclone, also called bombogenesis. The weather phenomenon happens when a low-pressure system’s central pressure drops at least 24 millibars — a millibar measures atmospheric pressure — over 24 hours or less. A storm with a lower pressure has higher intensity. Most read in The US...

The answer, according to a rough calculation from a new partnership formed by the Rhodium Group and the Atlantic Council, is as much as $45 trillion in new capital flows into and out of China by 2030, if the party were willing to pursue serious reform.

    (CNN)President Joe Biden and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Thursday signed a new Atlantic Charter meant to reflect the shifting threats facing the world 80 years after the original document was signed during World War II.Read the charter below:
    President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Boris Johnson will pledge to open a US-UK travel corridor 'as soon as possible' and open up Transatlantic travel restrictions when the two leaders met face-to-face for the first time on Thursday. They will also establish a new 'Atlantic Charter,' modelled on the one put together by Winston Churchill and Franklin Delano Roosevelt in World War II. International travel will be a top issue at this week's G7 summit, where the coronavirus pandemic has essentially halted traffic as the summer holiday season approaches. Johnson planned to press Biden about a 'green channel' between their respective nations so those who are vaccinated could travel without observing a quarantine.  Before the outbreak of coronavirus more than 5 million British subjects visited the US and over 4.5 million Americans visited the UK every year – more than any other country.  To restart transatlantic travel, the two leaders will launch a new travel taskforce that will make recommendations on safely reopening it. 'We’ve established two working groups of experts -- public health experts: one with the United Kingdom...
    There are so many cicadas hatching in Virginia that they're appearing on weather radars as rain. National Weather Service There are so many cicadas emerging in the mid-Atlantic that weather radars are picking them up. The National Weather Service told us radar is identifying "biological" substances, likely cicadas. The NWS said meteorologists should be able to determine the difference between weather and cicada. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The 17-year "Brood X" cicadas are hatching in such high numbers that they're being picked up by weather radar in Virginia.

    The original Monopoly board game was inspired by segregated Atlantic City in the 1930s with property prices reflecting deep racial disparities between white and black residents, an author has claimed.   Mary Pilon, who wrote her book The Monopolists about the hidden history of the beloved board game in 2015, argued that it's property values 'reflect a legacy of racism and inequality' in an essay published in The Atlantic on Monday.  Monopoly, which is produced and sold around the world by Hasbro, was derived from a real estate game that a woman named Lizzie Magie patented in the US in 1904. It quickly spread across the country, where it was adapted into several different versions.   In her essay Pilon asserted that the most common American version of the game today was created in the 1930s by a realtor named Jesse Raiford, who modeled his board after his hometown of Atlantic City.   'Raiford affixed prices to the properties on his board to reflect the actual real-estate hierarchy at the time,' Pilon wrote.  'And in Atlantic City, as in so much of the...
    An 'upsurge of matter' from deep beneath the Earth's crust is pushing Britain and America an inch and a half (4cm) further apart every year, a new study reveals.  UK experts studied seismic activity around the Mid-Atlantic Ridge (MAR) – the undersea mountain range that splits the Atlantic from north to south.  Using seismometers deployed on the ocean floor, they found evidence of an upwelling in the mantle – the material between the Earth's crust and its core – from depths of more than 370 miles (600 kilometres) beneath the MAR.   This upwelling is pushing the tectonic plates from below, causing the continents of Europe and Africa on one side and the Americas on the other to move further apart.   The geological phenomenon is widening the Atlantic Ocean, pushing Europe and the Amerrica an inch-and-a-half apart per year The data from the project provides the first large-scale and high-resolution imaging of the mantle beneath the MAR, which is known as one of the most turbulent places on Earth due to its seismic activity.  'This was a memorable mission that took us a...

    Photograph: Luis Robayo/AFP/Getty Images The prognosis for biodiversity on Earth is grim. According to a sobering report released by the United Nations last year, 1 million land and marine species across the globe are threatened with extinction – more than at any other period in human history. According to a recent study, about 20% of the countries in the world risk ecosystem collapse due to the destruction of wildlife and their habitats, a result of human activity in tandem with a warming climate. The United States is the ninth most at risk. Despite this desperate outlook, the Trump administration, as part of its aggressive rollback of regulations designed to protect the environment, has lifted protections for America’s animals. It has shrunk several national monuments and opened up a huge amount of federal land for oil and gas drilling, coalmining and other industrial activities – actions that conservationists warn could imperil species whose numbers are already dwindling and that are core to the health of our ecosystems. Here we look at some of the animals most at risk from Trump’s...
    The Atlantic published a column on Thursday in which it condemned Twitter’s decision to censor a bombshell story from the New York Post that detailed the alleged relationship between Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and Burisma. According to the article, Twitter’s censorship “sets a bizarre precedent, implying that the company might become an arbiter of journalistic rigor or public interest.” In a column published on Thursday by the Atlantic, writer Kaitlyn Tiffany scolded Twitter over its decision to restrict sharing on a New York Post story that leaked details about an alleged relationship between Joe Biden and a Ukrainian energy firm. The decision to block the story was allegedly based on Twitter’s “hacked information” policy, which permits the platform to remove content that was achieved by a computer hacker. However, there is little evidence to suggest that the information leaked in the story was obtained by hacking. For this reason, Tiffany argues in her column that Twitter’s decision to censor the story was “arbitrary.” But it’s hard to see how linking to a news outlet would constitute “directly” distributing hacked content, or how Twitter...

    A U.S. army veteran blown up on his fourth tour of Iraq has asked critics of Donald Trump to stop using his likeness to illustrate the president's reported comments about 'losers' and 'suckers'. Bobby Henline, who spent 13 years in the army, was the only survivor of five soldiers whose vehicle went over an IED in April 2007. Henline, 49, suffered burns on 40 per cent of his body, and his head was burned down to the skull. He now works as a comedian and motivational speaker. Bobby Henline, 49, has objected to Trump critics using his image to discuss the 'suckers' story A Facebook group, Military Veterans Against Fascism, is among those to use his photograph Henline made a TikTok speaking out against the 'propaganda', saying: 'Stop using my image' But following the controversy of the September 3 Atlantic article, in which Trump was accused of mocking veterans, Henline found his image was being used to illustrate posts about the reported comments.

    The View kicked off their new season on Tuesday with a rousing debate on President Donald Trump’s reported disrespect for American soldiers. The conversation gravitated around The Atlantic’s reporting that Trump repeatedly disparaged veterans and fallen servicemen, according to anonymous White House sources. Sunny Hostin defended the contents of the article, noting that anonymous sources provided the journalistic foundations for the Watergate scandal, and “anonymous sources can be relied upon” for investigative reporting. She also referred to Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger’s recent diatribe against Trump as she argued that the article’s allegations match with Trump’s public conduct. But Sara Haines — a former co-host for The View who officially returned to that position on Tuesday following the cancellation of her ABC daytime show — expressed skepticism about the report, calling out The Atlantic’s use of anonymous sources. While she acknowledged that such sources are “essential at times,” she added that she’s “seen many an article written based on anonymous sources that has made me cynical and skeptical if that’s all you have.” “People are going to see and...
    Editor-in-chief of The Atlantic magazine Jeffrey Goldberg defended his article claiming President Donald Trump said Americans who died in war were “losers” and “suckers” Sunday on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.” Host Brian Stelter said, “Speaking of the climate and the president’s attacks, here is his latest broadside against you and your magazine and the majority owner.

Call her and write her. That seems ominous to me. Do you interpret that as a threat?” Goldberg said, “I spent a lot of my career covering dictatorships in the Middle East, and so I’m familiar with this kind of discourse. It is a threat. It is meant to intimidate. I would only say we are neither failing or radical left. I would also say, I’m not speaking for the ownership or the management of the company.

    The former hurricane known as Laura has so far been the most intense and dangerous storm of this year's Atlantic hurricane season, according to the U.N.’s weather agency, the World Meteorological Organization. Laura is now just a tropical depression, spreading heavy rain and thunderstorms across the east-central United States, forecasters said. But as the storm crossed the Gulf of Mexico earlier this week, it strengthened from a Category 1 hurricane to a Category 4 in less than 24 hours. Forecasters recorded wind speeds as high as 240 kph. As Laura came ashore early Thursday in southern Louisiana, the National Hurricane Service was predicting an “unsurvivable storm surge.” That didn’t materialize, but damaging winds and heavy rains did. The system destroyed property, downed trees and led to power outages throughout the state.
