Texas has never seen an event like this, could be the worst flooding disaster in US history
Category 4 Hurricane "Harvey" made landfall around 03:00 UTC on Saturday, August 26, 2017 at Rockport, Texas with winds of 215 km/h (130 mph). It then stalled over the coast of central Texas, dumping extreme amounts of rain. Harvey is the first major hurricane to make landfall in the United States since Wilma in 2005, ending a record 12-year period with no major hurricanes making landfall in the US. In terms of rainfall it brought and flooding it caused, experts say Texas has never seen an event like this, adding that it could become the worst flooding disaster in the history of United States. Harvey is also the first hurricane to hit the state of Texas since Ike in 2008, and the strongest to hit the state since Carla in 1961. The system has since weakened into a tropical storm, but is still dumping extremely heavy rain, and will continue to do so over the coming days. It is now expected to move slightly off the coast, make another landfall over the SE Texas on Wednesday, August 30 and move over the NW Louisiana into Arkansas and toward Tennessee.

‘Regular day in Sochi’: Witnesses describe chilling plane landing through tornadoes (VIDEOS)
Sochi was transformed into a scene from an Armageddon movie when a dozen tornadoes descended on the Black Sea resort. But instead of a feeling of imminent doom, an eyewitness who filmed 3 waterspouts next to her plane, noted that no one panicked. Footage of the Sochi’s tornadoes quickly made international headlines. One especially harrowing picture taken Tuesday by Kseniya Vasilieva showed her plane landing in Sochi with three tornadoes to its left. Twisters seen in the snapshot showed just a fraction of almost a dozen waterspouts that hit that day, the peak of the tourist season. “The sky turned black, some kind of blotchiness appeared. We began to look closely because we could not distinguish between anything. At first, we thought that something had happened, then it all began to turn black, and tornadoes began to descend,” Vasilieva told RT. “At some point, it seemed to us that something had fallen... in fact, no one reacted on the plane, we just filmed it,” she explained.

You Decide

Was Hurricane Harvey Artificially Intensified by Geoengineering Programs?
Weather modification is one of the most public secrets of the military industrial complex. Cloud-seeding and atmospheric spraying, for example, are well-documented and backed up historical accounts, and are often discussed in mainstream media. Yet, for some reason, the issue is unbearably difficult for most people to even consider. Perhaps because it sounds so much like something out of a science-fiction movie, or perhaps because the ramifications for our environment and health are so obviously serious. During the flooding of Houston by Hurricane Harvey, the National Weather Service announced that it had to introduce new colors to their satellite maps in order to more accurately present the magnitude of the downpour, which peaked at a stunning 50 inches. At the same time, many suggested that the storm was man-made in the sense that its intensity was caused by anthropogenic climate change, discounting the possibility of weather modification as a factor.

Vietnam puts dozens of bankers on trial for graft & mismanagement
About 50 bankers are on trial in Vietnam for alleged graft and mismanagement as authorities intensified efforts to crack down on corruption in the country. The bankers are accused of causing losses of $69 million at the Ocean Bank. The former chairman Ha Van Tham of Ocean Bank and general manager Nguyen Xuan Son are among those accused of embezzling $2.2 million and appropriating another $8.8 million, according to the Associated Press. At the time, the bank was 20 percent owned by state energy company PetroVietnam, where Son had previously served as chairman. The losses led to the bank being taken over by the State Bank of Vietnam. Another 44 senior executives are accused of abuse of power or economic mismanagement. Five executives from different companies are also named in the case. In recent years, Vietnam’s banking sector has been rocked by a series of scandals, with high-profile arrests of wealthy businessmen and executives

Harvey stirs up a toxic, industrial soup
Texas is home to 28 oil refineries, more than any other state, along with half of U.S. chemical manufacturing. Most of these facilities are clustered along the Gulf Coast, where Hurricane Harvey just dumped a year’s worth of rain in a few days. For the neighborhoods bordering Houston’s industrial facilities, an average day brings air polluted with nitrogen oxide, benzene, sulfur dioxide, and other harmful byproducts of the manufacturing processes that drive the city’s economic engine. People in these communities face cancer rates more than 20 percent higher than the city as a whole. When Harvey forced many of these power plants and refineries to shut down, huge quantities of toxic chemicals — as much as 2 million pounds of them — were released into the air all at once. Nearby residents reported “unbearable” smells, and some were even told to “shelter in place” as authorities weighed the necessity of evacuation amid rising floodwaters.

Turkey hit by 28 002 earthquakes during the first 8 months of 2017
During the first eight months of the year, Turkey has been hit by 28 002 earthquakes, making this year well on the way to be most seismically active since reliable records began. Notable uptick started in June with 4 243 earthquakes and continued in July with 4 349 and in August with 4 501 (by August 30), almost half of what the country experienced within the first 5 months of the year. According to the earthquake distribution map, the country's western regions had been hit particularly bad by a series of earthquakes, the Hurriyet Daily News reported. The quakes have particularly intensified in the Marmara and Aegean regions, which had an average of five earthquakes of varying sizes per day. The map revealed that earthquakes were most commonly observed in the Istanbul-Çanakkale-İzmir-Muğla fault line.

FDA approves 1st ‘living drug’ to treat cancer in the US
The Food and Drug Administration has approved the first-ever gene therapy to treat cancer in the US. The treatment offers a totally new approach to fighting the disease and could lead to novel treatments of other serious and life-threatening maladies. On Wednesday, the FDA approved a new leukemia treatment from the Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis, which the agency said is “the first gene therapy available in the United States.” The treatment, called Kymriah, is a “genetically-modified autologous T-cell immunotherapy,” where each dose is created by using the patient’s own T-cells, a type of white blood cell known as a lymphocyte. Each patient’s T-cells are sent to a manufacturing center where they are genetically modified to include a new gene that contains a specific protein, called a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR). The CAR-T cells known as “a living drug,” are then infused back into the patient, where they target and kill leukemia cells.

DNA Study: Almost All The Microbes Inside Our Bodies Are Unknown To Science – Stanford Study Says
These microorganisms are found in our guts, on our skin, in our mouth and many other places of our bodies. Their importance is crucial because they help keep us alive. However, they have never been seen, suggests research from Stanford. Of all the non-human DNA fragments the researchers gathered, 99 percent of them failed to match anything in existing genetic databases the researchers examined. Over the course of several studies, the team collected, studied and catalogued all the DNA fragments they could find. They found a large chunk of new bacterial DNA, and DNA from the torque teno family of viruses. “We found things that are related to things people have seen before, we found things that are divergent, and we found things that are completely novel,” says study author Stephen Quake adding that the team have doubled “the number of known viruses in that family through this work.”
