    From Vincent Van Gogh to Frida Kahlo, many of the most famous artists in history are known for their self-portraits.  Now, a great white shark appears to have shown off its artistic skills while swimming the Atlantic Ocean.  The 13ft predator, named Breton, is fitted with a GPS tracker as part of the OCEARCH research mission.  Amazingly, a map showing Breton's travels through the Atlantic Ocean reveals the distinctive outline of a great white shark - fin and all.  The 13ft great white shark, named Breton, is fitted with a GPS tracker as part of the OCEARCH research mission. Amazingly, a map showing Breton's travels through the Atlantic Ocean reveals the distinctive outline of a great white shark Breton was the first shark to be tagged during charity OCEARCH's expedition to Nova Scotia in 2020. Whenever he surfaces for sufficient time, the tag in his dorsal fin 'pings' a GPS location back to shark trackers at the science organisation. The 1,437lb creature has travelled along the US East Coast off New Jersey, Chincoteague, Virginia and Long Bay, South Carolina. And...
    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...

Sparks flew off the plane as it climbed after takeoff, according to a video posted online that purports to show the flight.United Airlines Flight 149 departed Newark Liberty International Airport late Wednesday night, declared an emergency and returned safely to the airport early Thursday morning. The Boeing 777-200 aircraft had been headed to Sao Paulo, Brazil, before returning to Newark, the FAA said.The flight circled over the Atlantic Ocean, apparently to burn fuel, before returning to the airport about two hours after departure, flight tracking data shows.CNN has reached out to United Airlines and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey for comment.
    Dr. Anthony Fauci is inching closer to his December retirement but now the NIH director is saying that he won’t be retiring in the “classic sense.” In a sit-down interview at The Atlantic Festival, Fauci spoke with Deputy Editor of The Atlantic, Ross Andersen. The conversation centered largely on Fauci’s career and his 54 years of experience as the director of the NIH. As the event drew to a close, Andersen asked the question that has been on everyone’s mind… What comes next for Fauci? Back in August, Fauci announced that he would leave his post with the NIH in December to pursue his “next chapter.” Wednesday, the doctor hinted that his future, post-retirement, could see him writing articles or lecturing. But his main focus, he assured, would be inspiring the next generation of medical professionals. “I don’t know exactly what venue, first of all, I’m not gonna retire — as my wife so accurately says, ‘Don’t even think about that.’ I’m gonna rewire as it were. She’s very smart lady and tells me that it’s gonna be...
    Share this: Emergency repairs on a crumbling section of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway will mean closing most of the busy highway between Atlantic Avenue and Sands Street during three weekends and an unspecified number of nights between March and October of 2023.  Traffic from the BQE, which carries more than 150,000 vehicles a day, will be rerouted along streets including Atlantic, Third, Fourth and Flatbush avenues and smaller local streets, according to a Department of Transportation slide show distributed to local community groups. The diverted traffic will include tractor trailer trucks and other oversized commercial vehicles.  DOT is urging commuters to use alternate means of transportation if possible. Entrance ramps to the affected section of the BQE will be closed and traffic will be diverted.  Traffic agents and pedestrian managers will be placed at key intersections. 
    (CNN)Tropical Depression Seven formed in the Atlantic on Wednesday morning, the National Hurricane Center said in its 11 a.m. ET update -- and could become Tropical Storm Fiona later in the day or on Thursday.The system is located about 800 miles east of the Leeward Islands and has winds of 35 mph with stronger gusts. Tropical storm watches may be required for portions of the Leeward Islands later Wednesday. The depression is forecast to become a tropical storm (which means winds of 39 mph or higher) Wednesday night or Thursday as it gradually strengthens -- and then struggle to maintain that strength over the next few days.

    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...
    A sailor who has spent two years travelling the world on his boat has opened up about suffering horrific burns when a paraffin cooker exploded when he was alone on his boat in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Max Campbell, 27, was sailing solo as part of a three-month voyage in 2016 and 150 miles from land when the antique cooker set fire as he tried to light it. He jumped into the water having suffered second degree burns to his 12 per cent of his body - on his face, arms, torso and chest - but had no option other than to go on sailing for two days until he reached shore. At the time, his body had gone into shock and he began hallucinating; but the oceanographer now says he never once believed he would die. 'It was pretty terrible, I always knew I would survive but it was very close, the closest I have ever been to losing my life - it was a really dark time,' he said. Max Campbell, 27, was sailing alone as...
    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 MAJOR tropical storm that's set to pummel parts of the US with rain may strengthen into a hurricane. Two named weather systems, Tropical Storm Earl and Hurricane Danielle, are welcoming September with inches of rain and threats of flash flooding. 1Two named weather systems are blowing through the AtlanticCredit: NOAA Earl appears to be the most troublesome storm as it travels north from Puerto Rico. "Earl is moving toward the north-northwest near 5mph," the NHC reported. "A turn toward the north as a slightly faster forward speed is expected later today, with this motion continuing for the next couple of days."

    (CNN)As Hurricane Danielle churns in the North Atlantic, another storm has developed to its south near the Caribbean and may bring flooding to the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico over the weekend. Tropical Storm Earl has formed 185 miles (295 kms) east of the Leeward Islands, becoming the fifth named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season. Earl has maximum sustained winds of 40 mph (65km/h) and is moving west-northwest at 14 miles mph (22 km/h) as of Friday night, according to the National Hurricane Center. The storm is forecast to slow down as it moves near or just north of the Leeward Islands on Saturday and north of US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico by Saturday night and Sunday. Danielle becomes first hurricane of the 2022 Atlantic seasonTropical storm force winds are expected to remain on the northern and eastern side of the circulation and remain offshore from these islands. However, "any southward shift of Earl's center would increase the risk of tropical storm force winds in those areas," the hurricane center warned late Friday.Gusty squalls with embedded heavy...
    Tropical Storm Danielle intensified into a hurricane on Friday, becoming the first Atlantic hurricane of the 2022 season. Danielle upgraded to a hurricane just 900 miles west of the Azores in the North Atlantic Ocean, posing a hazard to shipping routes around the area, according to a Weather Channel report. The storm will not pose a threat to land, but it could affect riptides on the East Coast as things develop. TROPICAL STORM COULD HIT US DURING LABOR DAY WEEKEND, HURRICANE CENTER SAYS Danielle is the first Atlantic named storm of the season since Colin in July and follows a rare month of no named storms that occurred in August. Danielle becoming the first hurricane of the season marks the quietest start to the hurricane season that the country has seen in nearly 35 years, according to the report. There are two other areas being monitored by the National Weather Service that may develop into stronger storms, including one in the western tropical Atlantic and the other in the eastern Atlantic.

    Tropical Storm Danielle is set to intensify into a hurricane sometime on Friday, becoming the first of the season. Danielle is located over the northern Atlantic Ocean between North America and Western Europe and is poised to intensify into the season’s first hurricane, posing a hazard to shipping routes around the area, according to the National Weather Channel.

    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...

    (CNN)It isn't your imagination. The topics in the Atlantic have been very quiet this year despite a forecast from NOAA and other experts forecasting an above-average season.There hasn't been a named storm since the beginning of July, and if one doesn't form by the end of the day, it will be the first August in 25 years to not have a named storm."Since 1950, two Augusts have had no Atlantic named storm formations: 1961 and 1997," tweeted Phil Klotzbach, a research scientist at Colorado State University. And it's not just August. Klotzbach also tweeted:"For the first time since 1941, the Atlantic has had no named storm (e.g., tropical storm or #hurricane) activity from July 3rd-August 30th."Read MoreBut the trend may not continue."This remarkably quiet Atlantic tropical cyclone period is likely to end soon," Klotzbach said Wednesday morning.Hurricane season is about to ramp up but may not reach the level originally forecast The National Hurricane Center is monitoring three areas for possible tropical development over the next five days.The National Hurricane Center is actively watching three areas for tropical cyclone formation...
    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...
    Needless to say, House of the Dragon’s Viserys Targaryen is a busy guy. Between being king, tending to his long white locks, and answering constant questions about his line of succession, this is not a man with a lot of time on his hands. We did, however, get a little down time with the king during this past Sunday’s installment of the Game of Thrones prequel—and speaking of the king’s hands, I’ll admit I was not prepared for what they were about to do. Game of Thrones was known, among many things, for its passion for all things visceral. (Two deaths that continue to haunt me on a monthly basis: Oberyn Martell’s eye-popping demise and that one dude who got his bowels chewed out by a bunch of rats.) So far, House of the Dragon has been a little sparser with the gore—although there is, of course, still plenty of time. This week, the show did give us one genuinely gnarly moment: King Viserys sitting down for a round of maggot therapy. Whoever did the Foley work on this scene...
    Major cities like Atlanta, Chicago and Los Angeles are not prepared for storms, floods wildfires and other disasters and will struggle to evacuate people from an incoming weather hazard, researchers say. Experts at Florida Atlantic University say many mayors are ignoring the lessons from Hurricane Katrina, super storm Sandy and other urban tragedies and urge residents of ill-prepared cities to devise their own exit strategies. Topping the list of shame are Detroit, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Chicago and L.A., which either have no evacuation strategy or have a 'secret plan', which experts say does little to help folks in a hurry.  Urban planning scholar John Renne also gave a heads-up to residents of Honolulu, Colorado Springs, El Paso, San Antonio, Memphis, and Indianapolis, after he rated those cities' evacuation plans as weak. ‘To the mayors of these cities, I say there’s no excuse not to have a plan, and there are federal resources available to help you put one together,’ Renee told DailyMail.com. Urban planners at Florida Atlantic University rated major U.S. cities on their published evacuation plans, and Detroit,...

Weather scientists said the recent calm is due to "atmospheric ingredients" simply not gelling to cause a tempest. But with peak hurricane season upon us until October, meteorologists have weighed in with their forecasts. According to Philip Klotzbach, a hurricane researcher at Colorado State University, the lull is the first time since 1982 that a storm hasn't been named in the Atlantic in the final weeks of August. read more on weather'KEEPING BUSY' GMA announces new weather producer paying tribute to fan favorite Ginger ZeeWHERE'S ROB?

    In an interview with Atlantic writer Elaine Godfrey, Harvard-based political scientist and sociologist Theda Skocpol weighed in on the meaning of Trump, Trumpism and the “Stop the Steal” movement. Having interviewed and corresponded with Skocpol in the past, I have long admired her insights, and she wowed me again in this transcribed interview describing what “Stop the Steal” really means to those who embrace that slogan to express their outrage over Joe Biden’s victory. And, she believes, it isn’t that Biden and the Democrats actually stole the election. Try this Skocpolian explanation for the slogan’s real meaning for her piece, headlined: “‘Stop the Steal’ is a metaphor.”  Skocpol said its a metaphor “for the country being taken away from the people who think they should rightfully be setting the tone.”   Article continues after advertisement “I don’t think ‘Stop the Steal’ is about ballots at all,” she opined. “I don’t believe a lot of people really think that the votes weren’t counted correctly in 2020. They believe that urban people, metropolitan people — disproportionately young and minorities, to be sure, but...
    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...

    Brooklyn Beckham has become the latest celebrity to show off his multitude of accents during a candid interview about his love for cookery this week. The 23-year-old son of Victoria and David Beckham spoke to People about what he loves to cook for wife Nicola Peltz, 27 - but baffled fans as he switched between American and Cockney accents while chatting. However he's far from the first star to leave fans scratching their heads over exactly where his accent is from,  The star's change in accents was reminiscent of Liam Payne's unintentionally hilarious chat at the Oscars in March - which went viral due to the Wolverhampton-born star's 'Irish-American' twang. Meanwhile many royal fans couldn't help but pick up on the changes to Prince Harry's accent after he moved to California with Meghan Markle.

    Referring to "Deus Vult ('God wills it') crusader memes," Christian iconography paired with political rhetoric, and implorations online "for men to rise up and become Church Militants," Panneton argued that there has been a concerted effort to integrate "ultraconservative Catholicism with other aspects of online far-right culture." He insinuated further that this is not a matter of online trolling, but of "providing a pathway to radicalization and real-world terrorist attacks." In the hands of so-called "ultraconservative Catholic[s]," Panneton believes the rosary to be "anything but holy." Eric Sammons, editor of Crisis Magazine, responded, saying: "Of course, in our modern woke world all militaristic language has become politically incorrect." Sammons questioned the extremist label applied by Panneton to "rad trads," asserting that an aversion to LGBTQ acceptance in the Church, pro-life views, and opposition to transgenderism targeting children simply means the accused "act like Catholics." Republican Rep. Lisa McClain (Mich.) suggested that Panneton's piece is emblematic of a broader hostility toward Christians from the left. \u201cThe far left thinks the Rosary is an extremist symbol.\n\nThat just shows how radically anti-Christian...
    (CNN)A new deep-sea crustacean that bears a striking resemblance to the facehuggers from "Alien" has been identified off the Gulf of Mexico.The bathynomus yucatanensis is a species of giant isopod, crustaceans that scavenge for food at the bottom of the ocean. Their segmented, fourteen-legged bodies resemble their much smaller relative, the woodlouse. The foot-long size of the giant isopods has been attributed to deep-sea gigantism, the same phenomenon that leads to giant squids at the bottom of our oceans.A group of Taiwanese, Japanese, and Australian researchers set out to describe the new species of giant isopod and distinguish it from the bathynomus giganteus, the giant isopods found throughout the tropical western Atlantic waters. Their research was published in the Journal of Natural History on Tuesday. The ghost of the forest and other animals living in a land of extremesThe researchers collected specimens of the newly identified species off Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula. By comparing the massive crustaceans to others collected around Taiwan and Hong Kong, they were able to identify distinguishing characteristics, like its creamy yellow color and more slender body...

    The East Coast could be in for a rough time over the next few months, with more violent than normal hurricane activity being forecasted. Between 14 and 20 storms that are strong enough to be given a name by the National Hurricane Center (NHC) are expected in 2022, with up to 10 of those being classified as hurricanes. Named storms have winds over 39 mph and hurricanes have winds in excess of 74 mph. So far, three storms have risen to named status: Hurricane Bonnie and tropical storms Alex and Colin. While the NHC defines Atlantic hurricane season as running between June 1 and November 30, major hurricane activity usually doesn’t begin until August.

It sure has been quiet in the Atlantic lately," said Phil Klotzbach, research scientist at Colorado State University, in an email to CNN. "We had a brief flurry in late June/early July with Bonnie and Colin, but it's been dead since then."And you may not even remember those two storms, especially Colin in early July. If you blinked, you missed it. Colin formed over land in South Carolina and only survived about 24 hours.But let's not write hurricane season off just yet. If you have vacation plans during the next couple weeks, you should be in the clear -- however, we should start to see things slowly (or quickly) change soon.Read More"There are signs that things should pick up as we head towards mid-August," Klotzbach noted.One reason...

    We've all been frustrated on a flight before. But on Tuesday, one passenger took it to another level when he allegedly tried to kick out the windows of his plane flying to Los Angeles. The commotion forced the pilot to divert the Virgin Atlantic plane to Salt Lake City, with the unplanned stop happening at around 4.30pm. The atmosphere was tense at Heathrow, London, where the flight had departed, with passengers waiting in a two-hour security line. The passenger, believed to be British, was seated in the Economy cabin when he got aggressive on the flight and reportedly faced-off with flight attendants on three occasions. He fell asleep at one point but soon woke up and started rampaging around the plane.  Stock photo: A drunk man allegedly tried to kick the windows out on a Virgin Atlantic flight during a mid-air meltdown, causing a woman to drop her baby Things got worse when he kept on drinking throughout the trip, eventually taking out his anger on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner windows.

    MYSTERIOUS holes bored 1.7 miles beneath the surface of the Atlantic Ocean have stumped scientists. Photos show that the dents punched into an otherwise flat and sandy surface connect into neat, straight lines. 3An underwater craft piloted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration stumbled across the unusual perforations over the weekendCredit: NOAA A remote underwater craft piloted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) stumbled across the unusual perforations over the weekend. The crew of the Okeanos Explorer said the holes looked manmade but could offer no further explanation as to how they got there. Okeanos is investigating the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, a largely unexplored area of seafloor that's home to a huge submerged mountain range. "We observed several of these sublinear sets of holes in the sediment," NOAA Ocean Exploration reported. "These holes have been previously reported from the region, but their origin remains a mystery. "While they look almost human made, the little piles of sediment around the holes make them seem like they were excavated by ... something." The July 23 dive visited the summit of...

    A fiery red glow was spotted by a pilot on July 22 as he passed over clouds above that Atlantic Ocean, and images of the eerie scene were recently shared on Reddit with the hopes of unravelling the mystery. Three images of the encounter sparked a commenting frenzy on the social media platform, as thousands flocked to the post to share their take on what was glowing below the clouds.
