    A fault system running nearly 70 miles along the coast of Los Angeles and Orange counties has the potential to trigger a magnitude 7.8 earthquake, according to a new study that is the latest to highlight the seismic threats facing Southern California. Known as the Palos Verdes fault zone, the system runs deep beneath the Palos Verdes Peninsula. It previously was thought to be a segmented network of smaller faults, but a closer look by scientists at Harvard University suggests it’s a system of interconnected, closely spaced planar fractures stretching from the Santa Monica Bay to the waters off Dana Point. The analysis determined the fault system, which runs beneath numerous neighborhoods as well as the ports of Long Beach and L.A., has a much larger surface area that could rupture in the same seismic event, making it capable of a far more powerful quake than was previously known. Scientists found the fault could produce a quake of a magnitude comparable to one from the San Andreas fault. Earlier estimates said the fault zone could generate up to a magnitude...
    With inflation in the euro zone projected to rise to at least 10% in the coming months, a "jumbo" rate hike of 75 basis points on is certainly a possibility.Bloomberg | Bloomberg | Getty Images FRANKFURT, Germany — The European Central Bank is expected to frontload a series of rate hikes and sacrifice growth in the region due to the rising cost of living which is threatening to surge even higher.  ECB Executive Board Member Isabel Schnabel's speech in Jackson Hole set the tone for the upcoming policy meeting this week. With inflation in the euro zone projected to rise to at least 10% in the coming months and the risk of consumer prices rocketing higher, a "jumbo" rate hike of 75 basis points on Thursday is certainly a possibility. "As frontloaded hikes can have a bigger impact on inflation expectations than a more gradual approach, a 75bp move could make sense," said ECB watcher and Berenberg's Chief Economist Holger Schmieding in a research note.  "Although it is largely priced in, it could still exacerbate strains in the bond markets."...
    ANTONIO CONTE hailed Richarlison for making Tottenham nastier - and could unleash the Brazilian in a fearsome front FOUR from the start of some matches. Forward Richarlison, 25, joined Spurs from Everton in a £60million deal this summer. 3Richarlison celebrates with his new Spurs team-mates after Kane's levellerCredit: Getty 3Kane gives Richarlison a hug after securing a 2-2 draw at Stamford BridgeCredit: AP 3Richarlison joined Tottenham from Everton for £60million this summerCredit: PA His ability to get under opponents’ skin was seen as an attractive quality to Conte, who wanted to make his team more streetwise this season. Richarlison was a complete nuisance to the Chelsea defence when making his debut as a second-half substitute in Sunday’s fiery 2-2 at Stamford Bridge. His pest-like qualities helped Spurs battle back into the game, as Conte sprung a surprise by substituting Ryan Sessegnon for the forward, rather than Dejan Kulusevski or Son Heung-min. It meant that Tottenham’s team were suddenly boasting Harry Kane, Son, Kulusevski AND Richarlison in an unexpected 4-2-4 for most of the second half. READ MORE ON TOTTENHAMTEN FEET...
    A NASA plot to bring back soil from the surface of Mars has sparked fears that the mission could unleash alien microbes on Earth. The Perseverance rover, which landed on the Red Planet last year, will collect pristine samples of Martian rock from the Jezero crater. 1Nasa's Perseverance rover is on a mission to collect samples of Martian rock for return to EarthCredit: Getty It will package them up in titanium tubes which will be returned to Earth by a separate spacecraft by 2033. The mission promises to revolutionise our understanding of Martian soil by giving scientists a chance to study it in the flesh. However, fears have been raised that alien microbes stored in the samples could pose a danger to our planet. In May, Nasa's Jet Propoulsion Laboratory – which is spearheading the mission – held its first public presentation about the plans.

    The year was 1973 and on a warm day in May the rooftop swimming pool of the Continental Hyatt House Hotel in Los Angeles was full of young girls wearing bikinis or even less — most of them ‘underage’ by a significant margin. The scene was set for the next instalment of the depraved bacchanal that was Led Zeppelin on tour. Girl after girl was thrown into the deep end as, strung out on drugs and drink, the band and their cronies watched leeringly. Jimmy Page, revered guitarist of the world’s hottest rock band, hung back and watched from a distance. He couldn’t swim and, besides, he had already picked out the one he wanted — 14-year-old Lori Mattix. He’d been sent a photo of her earlier and, later that night, as the party moved to a sleazy local nightclub, Rodney Bingenheimer’s English Disco, he pulled Mattix to one side and said: ‘I told you I was going to be with you.’ She was worried — her friend Sable Starr, just a year older, had made clear she also had...
    Desperate times call for desperate measures, as the saying goes. As scientists, policymakers and politicians keep one increasingly startled eye on climate change's ticking clock and the other on the ongoing, upwardly mobile trend in greenhouse gas emissions, it's no wonder possible solutions that have been long dismissed as fringe slices of science fiction are making their way into the mainstream. Enter center stage geoengineering, a hitherto black sheep of the fight against global warming. Geoengineering is a broadly encompassing term with a few close etymological cousins—namely climate engineering and climate change mitigation—along with a sizable stable of associated technologies. Some of them, like afforestation and ocean iron fertilization, fall under the umbrella of carbon dioxide removal (CDR) in that they seek to draw down carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. But these are techniques that would in all likelihood shift the climate change needle relatively slowly. In comparison, technologies under the rubric of solar radiation management (SRM) are expected to work on a much faster timescale, and as a consequence, generate arguably the greater buzz. Solar engineering is the idea...
    (CNN)Imagine a long river of water vapor in the sky coming into the West Coast. It is how Marty Ralph, the director of the Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego, described the storm event threatening California at the moment.The storms are called "atmospheric rivers," which are narrow bands of concentrated moisture in the atmosphere emerging from the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean, cruising more than two miles above the sea. An average atmospheric river transports more than 20 times the water the Mississippi River does, as vapor.Throughout the weekend and into next week, parts of the West Coast will go from extreme drought to facing a series of bomb cyclones and an associated atmospheric river. The weather whiplash may unleash rains, flash floods, debris flows, and potential hurricane-force winds, particularly in the Pacific Northwest and Northern California. West Coast braces for simultaneous bomb cyclone and atmospheric river "Wherever the storms hit shore on the West Coast is where the heaviest precipitation occurs, and that can be very beneficial...
    Deep below the Arctic's permafrost lies Cold War era nuclear waste and deadly pathogens that could soon be released to the surface as a result of rapidly melting ice, a new study suggests. A team of scientists from Aberystwyth University warn up to two thirds of the Arctic's near-surface permafrost could be lost by 2100 due to climate change, as the area is warming at as much as three times the average global rate.  The researchers highlight the 130 nuclear weapons tested in the atmosphere by the Soviet Union from 1995 to 1990, which left behind high levels of radioactive substances.   Along with nuclear waste, there are hundreds of microorganisms currently frozen in the ice. As the permafrost thaws, there is potential for these bacteria to mix with meltwater and create new antibiotic-resistant strains of existing viruses. More than 100 microorganisms in the deep permafrost have already been found to be antibiotic-resistant, according to the study published in the scientific journal Nature Climate Change. The nuclear waste, if released, can be toxic for humans and animals and the thousands-year-old viruses could...
                        Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr and 23 other attorneys general said this week that federal agencies shouldn’t force private sector employees to choose between either a COVID-19 shot or a weekly COVID-19 test. Carr and the other attorneys general voiced their concerns in a letter to U.S. President Joe Biden. Biden wants officials with the U.S. Department of Labor and the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to force private sector employees to guard themselves against COVID-19 — or else they will lose their jobs. In an emailed press release, Carr and the other attorneys general explained why they think Biden’s plan does more harm than good. “In yet another example of blatant disregard for the rule of law, the Biden-Harris Administration’s command-and-control strategy is condescending and counterproductive, harmful to our state’s economy, and — most importantly — unconstitutional,” Carr said. “We will fight back against the administration’s abuse of power and will protect the citizens and businesses in our state.” In the letter, the attorneys general told Biden that his plan...
    PRINCE Harry is set to unleash on the Royal Family in his new memoir. The duke, 36, has promised to be "wholly truthful" in his new book which was announced yesterday. 2Prince Harry is set to release his memoirCredit: Splash News 2Harry may make explosive revelations in the bookCredit: PA:Press Association He is expected to detail his experiences growing up as a royal, his relationship with wife Meghan, leaving the Firm and moving to California as well as raising his kids. These are some of the explosive revelations Harry may make in his memoir. Who made the racist comments about Harry's son? During the couple's interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year, Meghan Markle claimed that there had been conversations with Harry and a "family" member about their unborn son and what colour his skin would be. She also said the couple's son Archie wasn't made a prince after "concerns and conversations" about "how dark" his skin would be when he was born. But the 39-year-old declined to say who had started those conversations, saying it would be "damaging" for...
    Prince Harry is set to release a tell-all Megxit memoir that could contain several bombshell allegations and revelations that will no doubt rock the Royal Family Prince Harry has once again sent shockwaves of fear through the Royal Family after it was revealed that he is planning to release a tell-all memoir about his life in the Monarchy and his bombshell decision to quit his royal duties.  The Duke of Sussex, 36, has secretly working on the memoir for the past year and has since sold the book to publishers at Penguin Random House for an undisclosed amount.  His book marks the first time that a senior royal has written this kind of tell-all, and the news of its existence comes amid an ongoing, and increasingly-bitter, rift between Harry and Meghan, and the rest of the Royal Family.  Thus far, few details about the book's exact contents have been shared, however Penguin Random House issued a statement in which it revealed Harry's book will provide an 'intimate and heartfelt' look into his life.

    A "MEGADROUGHT" could trigger an arsenic “death cloud” and unleash a climate catastrophe across the West Coast, scientists fear. The warning comes as parts of the US continue to battle a ravaging heatwave that has shattered temperature records and sparked unrelenting wildfires. 5A 'megadrought' could unleash a climate catastrophe across the West CoastCredit: Getty 5The drought could affect marine life as vital food sources such as microbialites are at risk of drying upCredit: AFP Water levels in the Great Salt Lake, Utah are almost at a record 58-year low and they are nine feet lower than average, according to the Daily Star. The vast lake doesn’t usually hit lows until October. Kevin Perry, chairman of the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Utah, warned that as the soil dries out, arsenic could be picked up by the wind. A potential dust storm could cause breathing issues for humans. The boffin told CNN: “One of the concerns we have is the particles that are coming off the lake getting into people's lungs.

    Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman Al-Saud, Minister of Energy of Saudi Arabia arrives for the 178th meeting of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) in Vienna, Austria, on March 6, 2020.Alex Halad | AFP | Getty Images Disagreement within OPEC could trigger a more a volatile period for oil, with prices jumping on lack of new supply or sinking suddenly if member countries decide to release crude independently. Oil prices initially surged to a six-year high on news that the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies, known as OPEC+, ended their meeting Monday with no action and no new meeting date. A proposed plan by OPEC, Russia and other allies to bring 400,000 barrels a day back to the market was disrupted by the United Arab Emirates' objection to other aspects of the deal. West Texas Intermediate crude futures for August traded as high as $76.98 Tuesday before falling back to settle down 2.4% at $74.53 per barrel. Many analysts had expected oil to rise on the discord among members of OPEC, and say prices could still...
    PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti -- Hurricane Elsa raced toward Haiti and the Dominican Republic on Saturday, where it threatened to unleash flooding and landslides before taking aim at Cuba and Florida.The Category 1 storm was located about 110 miles (175 kilometers) east-southeast of Isla Beata, Dominican Republic and was moving west-northwest at 31 mph (50 kph). It had maximum sustained winds of 75 mph (120 kph), with the hurricane expected to become a tropical storm after hitting Cuba, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami.The long-term forecast track showed it heading toward Florida as a tropical storm by Tuesday morning, but some models would carry it into the Gulf or up the Atlantic Coast.In Haiti, authorities used social media to alert people about the hurricane and urged them to evacuate if they lived near water or mountain flanks."The whole country is threatened by this hurricane," the Civil Protection Agency said in a statement. "Make every effort to escape before it's too late."WATCH: Big changes made to the hurricane season this year Haiti is especially vulnerable to floods and landslides because of...
    London (CNN Business)Consumers around the world have amassed an extra $5.4 trillion in savings since the coronavirus pandemic began, setting the stage for a spending boom that could power a strong uplift in economic growth this year.Households had stockpiled the excess savings, equal to 6% of global GDP, by the end of March, according to Moody's Analytics. The savings are on top of what they would have saved if the pandemic had not occurred and saving behavior had been the same as in 2019, chief economist Mark Zandi said in a research note on Monday.The United States boasts the largest share of excess saving, amounting to $2.6 trillion, or 12% of US GDP, with the United Kingdom close behind at 10% of GDP. In general, excess saving is at its highest in North America and Europe where lockdowns and government support have been most significant, according to Zandi. Many wealthier households whose incomes haven't been affected by the pandemic have built up savings that they otherwise would have spent on travel, entertainment and eating out. What savers do with $2.4...
    Savannah Rychcik January 27, 2021 0 Comments Bill and Melinda Gates are expressing their concerns about a new injustice the COVID-19 pandemic could potentially lead to. “Bill and I are deeply concerned, though, that in addition to shining a light on so many old injustices, the pandemic will unleash a new one: immunity inequality, a future where the wealthiest people have access to a COVID-19 vaccine, while the rest of the world doesn’t,” they warned in their annual letter on Wednesday. They continued, “Until vaccines reach everyone, new clusters of disease will keep popping up. Those clusters will grow and spread. Schools and offices will shut down again. The cycle of inequality will continue.” The couple argued the future depends on “whether the world comes together to ensure that the lifesaving science developed in 2020 saves as many lives as possible in 2021.” Bill Gates said the world “failed to prepare” for the COVID-19 pandemic, but there is hope. “To prevent the hardship of this last year from happening again, pandemic preparedness must be taken...

    Cyber criminals could soon unleash a wave of ransomware attacks targeting U.S. hospitals and health care providers, according to a statement released by three federal agencies, including the FBI. In the statement, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) warned they had “credible information of an increased and imminent cybercrime threat to U.S. hospitals and healthcare providers” with the goal of “data theft, and disruption of healthcare services." Ransomware scrambles data, and it can only be unscrambled if the target pays the attacker a sum of money. Alex Holden, CEO of Hold Security, told the AP he warned federal authorities about the impending attacks Friday after seeing “infection attempts at a number of hospitals.” He added that the hackers were demanding ransoms of over $10 million per target and that he had seen attackers discuss plans to infect “more than 400 hospitals, clinics and other medical facilities.” “One of the comments from the bad guys is that they are expecting to cause panic and, no,...
    An unprecedented ‘mega-tsunami’ could be caused by a melting Alaska glacier, scientists have warned. The concerned experts claim the catastrophic event could even happen within the next 12 months if melting ice triggers a landslide of unstable rocks. If it’s not that soon, they think the ‘mega-tsunami’ is likely to happen within the next two decades. The potential disaster was warned about in May by scientists who wrote an open letter to the Alaska Department of Natural Resources (ADNR). They’re worried about an area called Prince William Sound along the south coast of Alaska in the US. This region has seen glacier retreat, which has led to instability on the slopes of a mountain in Barry Arm above the Barry Glacier. The scientists wrote: “We, a group of scientists with expertise in climate change, landslides, and tsunami hazards, have identified an unstable mountain slope above the toe of Barry Glacier in Barry Arm, 60 miles east of Anchorage, that has the potential to fail and generate a tsunami. “This tsunami could impact areas frequented by tourists, fishing vessels, and...

    Is Donovan Mitchell better off without Rudy Gobert in Utah? In the past months, rumors continue to swirl around Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert, and their future with the Utah Jazz. They may have already fixed the issue between them before the 2019-20 NBA season restarted in Orlando, but there are still speculations that the Jazz may consider breaking their young superstar duo in the 2020 offseason. In a recent article, Grant Hughes of Bleacher Report created a list of trades that would unleash potential superstars. To unlock Mitchell’s full potential in Utah, Hughes believes that the Jazz should strongly consider trading Gobert to the Atlanta Hawks or the Chicago Bulls in the 2020 offseason. “Mitchell posted career highs in points (24.0), assists (4.3) and rebounds (4.4) in 2019-20, making the All-Star Game for the first time. He’s almost impossible to stay in front of in isolation, and he’s shown flashes of advanced passing in tandem with a vast array of finishes in traffic. If he got increased reps in centerless lineups, it stands to reason he’d improve in both regards....
    MANCHESTER UNITED are set to unleash the kids as they take on LASK on Wednesday night. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Co take on the Austrian minnows in the second-leg of their Europa League last-16 tie leading 5-0 from the away leg. 3How Man Utd could line up against LASK on Wednesday Now back at Old Trafford, the United boss could give the likes of Teden Mengi and Ethan Galbraith a run-out.

    The Milwaukee Bucks may currently hold the best record in the 2019-20 NBA season, but most people believe that they would still be needing to step up their game to become successful in the upcoming 2020 NBA Playoffs. In order to boost their chances of fully dominating the Eastern Conference and bringing home the Larry O’Brien Trophy, the Bucks could use the strategy that helped the Golden State Warriors make five consecutive appearances in the NBA Finals and win three NBA championship titles. According to Greg Swartz of Bleacher Report, the Bucks already have their version of their “Death Lineup” featuring Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, Eric Bledsoe, Brook Lopez, and Wesley Matthews. The lineup has reportedly posted a net rating of plus-19.1 in the 408 minutes that they played together. However, Swartz believes that the Bucks could still improve their “Death Lineup.” To emulate the Warriors, Swartz suggested that Bucks Head Coach Mike Budenholzer could make Antetokounmpo his starting center, swap Matthews with Donte DiVincenzo, and give the role as starting power forward to Marvin Williams. “As good as the five...
    JERUSALEM (AP) — The U.N. envoy for the Middle East warned Israel on Thursday that carrying out its plans to annex parts of the West Bank could set of a spasm of violence that would upend Israeli-Palestinian relations and reverberate across the region. Speaking to a group of foreign correspondents in Jerusalem, Nickolay Mladenov, the U.N. special coordinator for the region, said any Israeli unilateral action will “will have economic and security repercussions on the ground that will affect the lives of both Israelis and Palestinians.” “Surely any such moves will be met by counter moves by the Palestinian Authority and they have already started,” he told members of the Foreign Press Association, noting how the Palestinians have absolved themselves from abiding by past agreements with Israel. “For now we have the clear commitment by the Palestinian leadership that they will do everything in their power to contain law and order in the areas they control,” he said. “But as the money runs out and as the political prospects become more grim, I feel that will become more difficult or...
