  • A historian says Trump's presidency is likely to be the second shortest in history

    Donald Trump's presidency is likely to be the second shortest ever, a leading historian and author has claimed.  Professor Ronald L Feinman predicted that the former reality TV star will stay in the top job "between the 31 days of William Henry Harrison in 1841," who died pneumonia and the "199 days of James A. Garfield in 1881," who died 79 days after he was shot by an assassin "after terrible suffering and medical malpractice."  Even if his time in office is "dragged out," Feinman predicted that Trump is unlikely to last the 16 months and 5 days of 12th president Zachary Taylor, who died of a digestive ailment while Head of State in 1850.

  • Bill Gates Warns That A Devastating Pandemic Is Right Around The Corner

    A pandemic is one of the world’s top three threats, and if not prepared for, could wipe out 30 million people in less than a year, philanthropist Bill Gates says. Microsoft’s co-founder said at the Munich Security Conference in Germany Saturday that we’re due for an apocalyptic sickness on the scale of the 1918 flu, which killed some 50 million people. The global crisis could strike in the next 10-15 years if we’re not careful, Gates warned. Bioterrorism has become feasible enough, he said, that a genetic engineer could use computers to create a synthetic airborne pathogen capable of wiping out a fraction of the world’s population quickly. “The next epidemic could originate on the computer screen

  • Powerful storm pounds Southern and Central California (26 photos)

    A powerful Pacific storm blew into Southern and Central California on Friday with wind-driven heavy rains that downed power lines and electrocuted a man, killed a motorist in a submerged car and disrupted hundreds of flights at airports. With the storm feeding on an atmospheric river of moisture stretching far out into the Pacific, precautionary evacuations of homes in some neighborhoods were requested due to the potential for mudslides and debris flows. At least 4 people died after a powerful storm pummeled Southern California on Friday night, flooding numerous roadways in Los Angeles and San Diego. In the Sherman Oaks neighborhood of Los Angeles, a falling tree brought down power lines and hit a car. A 55-year-old man was electrocuted and pronounced dead at a hospital, police and fire officials said. Two others died in separate car accidents on Interstate 15 in San Diego amid heavy rain. And a motorist was found dead in a fully submerged vehicle in Victorville in San Bernardino County, officials said. In the Studio City neighborhood of Los Angeles, two cars plunged into a massive sinkhole . At least one person was trapped when the first vehicle fell into the hole until rescue crews were able to pull the woman out of the car.

  • Dear Abby: Late to bed, late to rise makes mom, kids tardy

    DEAR ABBY: I will be spending a couple of months visiting my daughter, who is a single mom. She has asked me to help her wake her 8- and 11-year-old kids in the morning and have them ready for school. Unfortunately, she works some distance away from her home. The kids attend private school and are involved in sports. The problem is, they eat and go to bed later than they should. In the morning, they can’t wake up or get out of bed. She reminds them repeatedly to get ready, but when it’s time to leave and they’re not dressed or haven’t eaten breakfast, my daughter begins raising her voice. Leaving late means the kids arrive at school late, and my daughter is late for work. I’m leaving in a couple

  • Education Secretary DeVos criticized teachers at D.C. school she visited — and they're not having it

    Newly minted Education Secretary Betsy DeVos had a hard time getting inside the District of Columbia's Jefferson Middle School Academy last week when protesters briefly blocked her from entering. But at the end of her visit -- her first to a public school since taking office -- she stood on Jefferson's front steps and pronounced it "awesome." A few days later, she seemed less enamored. The teachers at Jefferson were sincere, genuine and dedicated, she said; they seemed to be in "receive mode." "They're waiting to be told what they have to do, and that's not going to bring success to an individual child," DeVos told a columnist for the conservative online publication Townhall.

    Russia’s Sukhoi T-50 PAK-FA fifth-generation stealth fighter may enter service in 2018, but the Kremlin is not in a particular hurry to buy the expensive new jet in large numbers. Meanwhile, Russia is continuing to develop new engines for the T-50, which is currently powered by interim Saturn AL-41F1 afterburning turbofans. Russian deputy defense minister Yuri Borisov told the TASS News agency. "Most likely, this will be already the next state armament program, i.e. 2018-2025." It is first necessary to complete the fighter jet’s trials, the deputy defense minister said. "We are not in a hurry," Borisov said.

    After a drought-ridden 10-year period, Friday water finally spilled (on its own) into Lake Berryessa’s Glory Hole, bringing an end to the longest gap between spills in the lake’s history. “Surprising,” said Solano County Water Agency General Manager Roland Sanford. “Given where we started, nobody initially thought it could spill this year.” Sanford’s shock is warranted. In October of 2016, Lake Berryessa was just half full. In fact, October 26 recorded the lake level at 398.6 feet. “It wasn’t until January when we had those heavy storms that we thought it had a chance,” Sanford explained. On Jan. 28, the lake level was a modest 427.3 feet. By 7 a.m. Friday, thanks in large part to another wave
