    Although former President Donald Trump is by no means universally loved within Christianity and has his share of critics among Catholics and Mainline Protestants, he has been incredibly popular within a certain area of Christianity: far-right White fundamentalist evangelicals. That movement, which has been called the Christian Right or the Religious Right, has had a firm grip on the Republican Party since the early 1980s. And although Trump himself was raised Presbyterian, not evangelical, and is not known for being very religious, he was made a point of courting evangelicals. One pastor who is critical of the relationship between Trump and the Christian Right is Caleb Campbell of the Desert Springs Bible Church in Phoenix, Arizona. According to a report from the Globe & Mail’s Nathan VanderKlippe, Campbell is trying to counter the Trump/MAGA influence on evangelicals. “You can think of Donald Trump’s most faithful adherents as bigots or patriots, constitutional standard-bearers or deluded masses,” VanderKlippe writes in an article published on November 25. “Caleb Campbell likes to think of them as sheep that have gone astray. He has made...
    Winter is on the way, and in war-torn Ukraine the fight against Russia appears far from over. Moscow continues to target Ukrainian power plants and stations. Grain shipments out of Ukraine have been interrupted since Russia paused participation in a United Nations-brokered agreement that allowed a corridor in the Black Sea for cargo ships to transit. And there's the prospect of a tactical nuclear weapon attack or even a meltdown at the Russian-occupied Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant."We're seeing this is becoming a real security issue with the Russians using food as a weapon of war turning off and turning on grain supplies as a way to try to coerce and manipulate the West," said Matthew Kroenig, acting director of the Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security. Europe is also planning for a long-term change in energy policy, with most countries changing from relying on Russian energy exports. "We are already experiencing a very strong decoupling between Europe and Russia on energy," said Simone Tagliapietra, a senior fellow at Bruegel, a Brussels-based think tank.

    Elon Musk has shared his thoughts on Amazon's new Lord of the Rings series... but he isn't leaving a good review. 'Tolkien is turning in his grave', Tweeted the richest man in the world on Monday, hitting out at The Rings of Power, the series which premiered on September 1 said to be the pet project of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. 'Almost every male character so far is a coward, a jerk or both. Only Galadriel is brave, smart and nice,' Musk said, referring to the series' female protagonist. He went on to say that 90% of the replies to his Tweets were bots, hinting at his controversy with Twitter — whose owners are suing him for backing out of a deal to purchase the company after Musk claimed Twitter's board overestimated how many people used the platform. Elon Musk wasn't impressed with Amazon's Lord of the Rings series, hitting out on Monday with the view that the author was 'turning in his grave' in reaction to the show The Rings of Power TV series, set to be the most expensive...
    By Aya Elamroussi | CNN A far-reaching winter storm was expected to bring dangerous ice to roads in parts of the South and Midwest on Thursday before dumping heavy snow in the Northeast. Winter weather alerts stretched over 1,500 miles from Arkansas to Maine on Thursday evening as the ice storm was set to create hazardous travel conditions and possible power outages, as well as a potential flooding threat in the Tennessee and Ohio Valleys. Ice accumulations greater than 0.25 inches are likely from the Red River Valley of Texas through the Ozarks and southeast Missouri, according to the Weather Prediction Center. “Locally, damaging ice of 0.5″ or more is possible which could lead to scattered power outages, tree damage, and dangerous travel,” the prediction center tweeted. Over 2,100 flights in the US have been canceled Thursday, mostly at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, according to the Flightaware.com tracking website. About 1,200 flights on Friday in the US have been canceled, with the worst being in Boston, where 62% of departing flights have already been canceled. In anticipation of the storm,...

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Like many car brands, Cadillac has declared that the future belongs to electric power.But until that happens, a performance model with a V8 engine is making one last hurrah.The 2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, base price about $85,000, is a sport sedan to rival anything from across the Atlantic in terms of specs and performance.The supercharged V8 makes 668 horsepower. And get this: buyers can choose to shift their own gears with an actual manual transmission. That combination of V8 power and a stick is not available on any BMW or Mercedes-Benz. Even GM's own Corvette is only sold with an automatic. Cadillac's been down this road before. Back in 2004 GM's luxury brand sort of shocked the automotive world with the original V model, the CTS-V, with a big V8 stuffed under the hood.If a V8 isn't your thing, and this one's $85,000 starting price tag is a little rich, say hello to the CT5-V's little brother, the CT4-V. It's also labeled Blackwing, and also available with a stick, but sports a twin-turbo V6 engine and...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy appears to have settled on a strategy to deal with a handful of Republican lawmakers who have stirred outrage with violent, racist and sometimes Islamophobic comments. If you can’t police them, promote them. The path to power for Republicans in Congress is now rooted in the capacity to generate outrage. The alarming language, and the fundraising haul it increasingly produces, is another example of how Donald Trump, the former president, has left his mark on politics, changing the way Republicans rise to influence and authority. Success in Congress, once measured by bills passed and constituents reached, is now gauged in many ways by the ability to attract attention, even if it is negative as the GOP looks to reclaim a House majority next year by firing up Trump’s most ardent supporters. That has helped elevate a group of far-right lawmakers — including Reps. Lauren Boebert of Colorado, Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia and Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona — whose inflammatory comments once would have made them pariahs. Rather...

    In recent years, more car companies have been installing turbocharged engines in their vehicles. This means more horse power but with today's technology, it can also mean better fuel economy.Mazda is currently getting into turbo engines in a big way. Oh, it's not the first time, but now the idea is to give a couple of their models a more premium overall vibe.Both the Mazda3 2.5 Turbo, a compact, and the CX-30 2.5 Turbo, a compact SUV, are the respective models' top-of-the-line variants for 2021. Mazda's slogan for them: Refined PerformanceSo, what exactly is a turbo, and how is it beneficial? The term has haphazardly been applied to everything from sneakers to sunglasses. But on an engine, a turbocharger has an actual function.Basically, it's a small device attached to the engine. Exhaust gases are routed through the turbocharger in one half. That spins a shaft, and on the other half of the shaft, air is pressurized and forced into the engine's intake. More airflow, more power. Basically, a smaller engine with a turbocharger can produce the same power as a...

    Abu Dhabi operates the Arab world’s first nuclear power plant. Riyadh is on his trail. At the risk of a proliferation in the region?
    We start 2021 with great hope. We all want it to look nothing like terrible 2020, but in the first few weeks of the year at least, that seems complicated. The search for allies To make confinement due to the pandemic more pleasant is increasingly difficult, although there will always be a friend who will never leave you: the music. When you find out that artists like Billie eilish, movies like ‘The Lord of the Rings: the Fellowship of the Ring’ Or until ‘Adventures in Time‘They are 20 years old, you automatically start to do the math. You conclude that this was all in 2001 and Your back starts to hurt right away or phrases like ‘my knee hurts with the cold’ come to mind. If you take those same accounts to the music, that beautiful art that joins masses with a single compass, and you discover that discs What Depeche Mode’s’ Exciter ‘, Daft Punk’s’ Discovery’ or even Britney Spears’ ‘Britney’ They are also 20 years old, your memories of that time begin to sprout and you want...

    The United Kingdom is in serious danger of replacing democracy with totalitarianism, one of Britain’s most distinguished legal minds, Lord Sumption has warned. Lord Sumption — author, lawyer, and former Supreme Court Justice — made his devastating critique of government policy at the Cambridge Freshfields Annual Law Lecture, delivered by Zoom. He began: During the Covid-19 pandemic, the British state has exercised coercive powers over its citizens on a scale never previously attempted. It has taken effective legal control, enforced by the police, over the personal lives of the entire population: where they could go, whom they could meet, what they could do even within their own homes. For three months it placed everybody under a form of house arrest, qualified only by their right to do a limited number of things approved by ministers. All of this has been authorised by ministerial decree with minimal Parliamentary involvement. It has been the most significant interference with personal freedom in the history of our country. We have never sought to do such a thing before, even in wartime and even when...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Hot weather prompted California’s electric grid operator to issue a statewide Flex Alert for Thursday, encouraging customers to conserve energy between 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. The California Independent System Operator (ISO) issued the Flex Alert Wednesday evening, calling for voluntary electricity conservation in anticipation of increased demand, primarily from air conditioning use. Customers are urged to conserve energy during the hottest part of the day, from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m., by turning off unnecessary lights, refrain from using major appliances, and setting their thermostat to 78 degrees or higher. Over the summer, previous conservation efforts were praised for reducing the power demand and avoiding rolling blackouts. The call for conservation comes as PG&E cut power to more than 50,000&E customers due to elevated fire danger. The utility began turning off power in Northern Califonia communities Wednesday around 6 p.m. They expect the outage to last until Friday evening when Red Flag Conditions pass.

    Facebook’s Connect conference is one of the biggest days of the year for virtual reality. But in 2020, developer Guy Godin was nervous. Godin is the developer of Virtual Desktop, a top-selling VR app that enables desktop computer access inside headsets. In 2019, he’d added a new feature to his Oculus Quest app, letting users of the mobile headset stream VR games from their PC. The feature was popular, but Oculus’ parent company Facebook wasn’t happy. The company made him roll back the update, saying its stream quality wasn’t reliable enough for Quest owners. Godin re-added the feature as an unofficial patch, downloadable outside the store. But he suspected Facebook was testing its own streaming feature — and that at Connect, it would make his version obsolete. By Godin’s reckoning, it would be the second time Facebook had pulled the rug from under Virtual Desktop. In 2017, the tethered Oculus Rift headset incorporated his app’s core functions into the Oculus app… under an icon labeled “Virtual Desktop.” Godin says the move caused confusion and frustration, with users leaving one-star reviews...
    VIDEO2:1102:11How innovation and tech are turning waste into energySustainable Energy Blessed with a wide variety of landscapes, the African country of Uganda produces everything from bananas and coffee to tea and cocoa. Indeed, its land plays a big role in its economy: the Uganda National Household Survey for 2016/17 found that 65% of the country's working population were involved in the agriculture, forestry and fishing sectors. And while these areas of the economy employ people, their by-products and waste-streams could also have a part to play when it comes to encouraging the use of sustainable energy. Vianney Tumwesige is managing director of Green Heat International, a firm which wants to take the waste produced from sectors like agriculture and then use it to generate products such as fertilizer and biofuel.  He explained to CNBC's "Sustainable Energy" that many people in the country worked as farmers growing crops. "The crops are used for food and the waste that the farmers generate, we use it to make energy," he said. Green Heat harnesses this waste in a number of ways. Solid waste...
    Californians have been plunged into darkness many times in recent years, either from storms knocking out power lines or utilities turning off power ahead of gusty autumn winds to prevent damaged electrical equipment from sparking wildfires. But an old foe is making a comeback — rolling blackouts. It’s been almost 20 years since the last rolling blackouts, so here’s a primer on what they’re all about: Q What are rolling blackouts? A Rolling blackouts are a rationing scheme utilities resort to when electricity demand outstrips supply, which can happen in heat waves as air conditioners and fans are cranked up to cool homes, offices and stores. They take blocks of circuits and the customers hooked up to them offline to balance demand with supply. Q How long will my power be out? A PG&E says they try to limit rolling blackouts to about an hour, but it can often be longer. Q How are rolling blackouts different from other outages? A Outages caused by damage to electrical equipment are common during winter storms and heat waves, and last until utility...
    Turning a 12-minute stroll into a seven-minute power walk every day decreases the chance of an early death by around 30 per cent, a study has found. Experts led from Cambridge used fitness tracker data to show that, when it comes to longevity, it's not how much exercise you get but the intensity that matters. The findings, the researchers said, could help fitness tracker wearables to be employed more specifically to help improve people's health.  Turning a 12-minute stroll into a seven-minute power walk, pictured, every day decreases the chance of an early death by around 30 per cent, a study has found (stock image) 'Our results show that higher volumes of activity energy expenditure are associated with lower mortality rates,' the researchers concluded in their paper.  Moreover, they added, 'achieving the same energy expenditure through higher-intensity activity is associated with even greater benefits than through lower-intensity activity.' In their study, epidemiologist Tessa Strain of the University of Cambridge and colleagues analysed fitness and health data from 96,476 UK Biobank participants.

    A massive sunspot observed on the sun is turning towards Earth and is expected to increase in size over the next few days. The area, dubbed AR2770, has a 'primary dark core' the width of Mars and a number of crater-size 'spotlets' littering its surface. The sunspot is a member of Solar Cycle 25, the new 11-year-long period of electromagnetic activity, and was observed crackling with minor flares. Although AR2770 has yet to produce 'killer' solar flares, experts are keeping a close watch in a bid to prepare for such an event that could knock out electrical operations and facilities on our planet.
