Editor's Corner

The week before last, there seemed to have been a lot of storms and a few bigger earthquakes. This last week, that seems to have been reversed. For example, you may already know about the large earthquakes that have hit Mexico recently but, did you know that Northern California experienced a 5.7 magnitude earthquake that hit not far off the coast?

Back on the topic of storms, did you hear about the major hailstorm that hit the city of Teruel in Spain? The temperature dropped about 30 degrees Fahrenheit in just a few hours and they received over a foot and a half of hail in just 15 minutes! Click here

On a slightly different subject, are you aware there is a star that scientists believe is older then the universe? This means there is either something wrong with the estimated age of the star, or there is something wrong with the estimated age of the universe. There is a third option, and that would be that "scientists have encountered 'something' they simply don't understand well enough." Click here

That's about it from me for this week. Enjoy this newsletter and have a wonderful week.

Gonna need a bigger crane: Enormous turtle found on Spanish beach (PHOTOS, VIDEOS)
A giant sea turtle measuring up to two meters (6ft 7in) in length washed up dead on a Spanish beach, Tuesday. The leatherback – the largest of all living turtles – was found in Calella on the Costa del Maresme in the province of Barcelona. Video footage shows an excavator being used to remove the huge creature. This is the second such find within a month on the Catalan coast, according to La Vanguardia. In August fishermen came across a leatherback, also known as a lute turtle, tangled in their nets. Authorities say the species, which can weigh up to 700kg (1,500lb), is rare in Catalonia. Department of Agriculture officials said this particular creature was in an advanced state of decomposition, reports Radio Calella. The ‘Dermochelys coriacea’ are primarily found in the open ocean, as far north as Alaska and as far south as the southern tip of Africa. Their recent sightings in the Mediterranean are surprising, biologists said, as no more than 10 have been spotted in the area in 2,000 years.

‘Gigantic mob’ of bees attack in California, six people hospitalized
Six people were hospitalized after a swarm of bees attacked people on the outskirts of Los Angeles on Saturday, forcing authorities to cordon off the area. Firefighters were called to the incident shortly before 5pm on Saturday following reports that people were being stung by bees in the parking lot of a grocery store in Monterey Park, a city in the suburbs of LA. Local news outlet KTLA reports that the attack started after a wild beehive in the lot was disturbed. The chief of the city’s fire department, Mark Khial, told the news outlet that two women were “completely covered” by the insects. Khial said that three people and three firefighters were forced to go to the hospital because of the amount of times they were stung. It’s unclear what species of bee was involved. “There was this gigantic mob of bees chasing people around. People were screaming and trying to go inside or trying to leave,” eyewitness Isabel Hernandez told ABC 7. Neil Lankin of the fire department said when he arrived, other firefighters were already being attacked by the bees.

‘Violent times will come’: End-of-the-world alarm interrupts broadcast in California
Viewers across Southern California have received an apocalyptic warning from their TV sets during a morning broadcast which was interrupted by an ominous voice promising “extremely violent times” to come. An emergency alert appeared on the screens of Southern California residents at around 11am on Thursday. Videos shared online show the warning against a black screen, followed by a man’s voice saying: “Realize this, extremely violent times will come.”  “It almost sounded like Hitler talking. It sounded like a radio broadcast coming through the television,” a Lake Forest resident, Stacy Laflamme, who watched broadcast via Cox cable system, told the Orange County Register. Clients on Spectrum cable, too, heard the alert. “I was definitely startled, because the volume increased exponentially,” Erin Mireles from Diamond Bar said, adding she assumed it was a hack of some kind. The bizarre message got California residents wondering as to what had happened. One Reddit user called it “totally creepy,” while another said it was “the most unsettling thing I have heard in my life.”

‘We are losing a dangerous race’: ‘Super malaria’ spreading rapidly in Asia
A highly drug-resistant strain of malaria dubbed “super malaria” is spreading rapidly in South East Asia, leading scientists to warn that it could soon be a global threat. The disease, most commonly transmitted by mosquitoes infected with the parasite, was first detected in Cambodia in 2008 but has now spread to the three remaining countries that make up the Eastern Greater Mekong subregion: Vietnam, Laos and Thailand. In a letter, published in Lancet Infectious Diseases, the team studying the spread of the disease from the Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit in Bangkok, said the rapid spread “presents one of the greatest threats to the control and elimination of malaria.” Adding that the fact it is mostly drug resistant is a “sinister development”.   “A single mutant strain of very drug-resistant malaria has now spread from western Cambodia to northeastern Thailand, southern Laos and into southern Vietnam and caused a large increase in treatment failure of patients with malaria," letter co-author Prof. Arjen Dondorp said.

Major hailstorm, huge hail accumulations in Teruel, Spain
A major hailstorm hit the city of Teruel and surrounding region in Aragon, eastern Spain on Friday, September 22, 2017. The event lasted up to 30 minutes, paralyzing traffic on some of the most important city roads. The hailstorm which began at about 21:00 CET (19:00 UTC) was very intense for about 15 minutes and was followed by another 15 minutes of heavy rain. A think layer of hail quickly reached up to 50 cm (1.6 feet) while weather stations recorded 40 mm (1.57 inches) of rain in half an hour. The temperature in the region dropped from 23 °C (73.4 °F) to just 7 °C (44.6 °F) within a few hours. According to Meteo Aragón, River Turia suddenly reached flood stage and overflowed, flooding the low-lying areas and causing injuries to four people who had to be treated for hypothermia. The incident occurred on the Moratilla bridge where a driver was trapped in his vehicle when he was caught by rushing water in a passage under the train line.

Mumbai inundated after more than a month's worth of rain in 24 hours
Less than a month after Mumbai was flooded by unusually high rainfall that killed many people, the metropolis has again experienced near-record rainfall that caused widespread flooding on Wednesday, September 20, 2017. It is the second wettest September day in IMD's over 100-year recorded history. At least 5 people have been killed. Between 08:30 Tuesday and 08:30 Wednesday, the Santacruz weather station, representative of Mumbai and its suburbs, recorded 303.7 mm (11.95 inches), and Colaba, representative of south Mumbai, recorded 210 mm (8.26 inches) of rain, the highest for south Mumbai this monsoon, according to data collected by India Meteorological Department and reported by the Hindustan Times. The city was just 14.5 mm (0.57 inches) short of the all-time high 24-hour September rainfall of 318.2 mm (12.52 inches) recorded on September 12, 1981.

‘Total devastation’: Hurricane Maria brings high winds and flooding to Puerto Rico (IMAGES, VIDEO)
Hurricane Maria has continued its trail of destruction in the Caribbean with Puerto Rico the latest island to feel the force of the storm’s 155mph winds. The Category Four storm, which claimed the lives of seven people on neighboring Dominica and two on the French island of Guadeloupe, made landfall near the city of Yabucoa on Wednesday morning, forcing at least 11,000 people into shelters. "This is total devastation,” a spokesman for Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello said. “In terms of the infrastructure, it will not be the same … This is something of historic proportions." In footage posted to Twitter, flooding appears widespread as heavy rain and high winds can be seen pummeling the island’s communities. Catastrophic flash flooding is occurring over portions of Puerto Rico and conditions are deteriorating over eastern Dominican Republic, according to the US National Hurricane Center. Puerto Rico, home to 3.5 million residents, has been left without power. Communications have also been lost with several emergency management outposts, according to emergency officials.

Methuselah Star Is Older Than The Universe – How Is It Possible?
Nicknamed Methuselah Star, the star HD 140283 is located only 190 light years from Earth. There are many reasons why the Methuselah Star is very interesting, but the greatest problem of all is that the star gives scientists a serious problem that cannot be solved easily. Methuselah Star is older than the Universe. How is it possible? The truth is, it’s hardly possible at all. Stars older than the Universe cannot exist in our Universe. So, either something is wrong with the age estimation of these stars, or something wrong with the estimated age of the Universe. Another option is that scientists have encountered “something” they simply don’t understand well enough. Scientists have known about Methuselah Star for more than 100 years. The star moves at about 800,000 mph (1.3 million km/h) and covers the width of the full moon in the sky every 1,500 years or so. Previous research showed that Methuselah Star is up to 16 billion years old and this is the paradox because according to astronomers and other scientists the Big Bang that created the universe occurred about 13.8 billion years ago.
