1…………> Gideon’s Fury: Gaza



Israeli warplanes bombed two Gaza positions identified as the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of resistance movement Hamas, and another in the southern part of the strip west of Khan Younis city, causing no casualties.

The Israeli army has yet to comment on the airstrikes.




2…………> Marshal Tito’s Bunker: A Video

An hour outside of Sarajevo, a bunker hidden beneath a mountain boasts spacious conference rooms, operating theatres and satellite television – it’s a bolthole fit for a president.



3…………> No Federal Ham & Eggers: Trump

An Executive Order signed by President Trump is making procedural changes to strengthen the merit system and streamline the removal of poor performers.
The current system makes firing bad employees prohibitively difficult, undermining the Federal Government’s merit principles that call for removing poor performers.
It takes 6 months to 1 year to remove a tenured Federal employee for poor performance, plus an average of 8 more months to resolve appeals. Tenured Federal employees are also 44 times less likely to get fired or laid off than private sector workers.




4…………> Give Me Water, Cold, Clean Water: China

Chinese researchers have created a new composite material highly effective in cleaning water contaminated by organics, using a mixture of black titania and three-dimensional (3D) tubular graphene, that cleaned a 360,000-square-feet area of water in east China’s Shanghai, Anhui, and Jiangsu as part of a pilot scheme.

Excessive organics, such as ammonia and nitrogen, can consume a large amount of oxygen in the water and generate stinky substances that kill aquatic life. Without human intervention, sunlight can naturally degrade organics to water and carbon dioxide, but the process requires months to years, depending on different degrees of pollution.




5…………> Applied Global Warming: Alberto

After pounding the western coast of Cuba with relentless rain that caused flash floods and mudslides, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi launched emergency preparations ahead of the arrival of Subtropical Storm Alberto, a slow-moving system expected to cause wet misery across the eastern U.S. Gulf Coast over the holiday weekend.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said the island’s rain totals could reach 10 to 15 and even 25 inches in isolated areas, as heavy downpours were expected to begin lashing parts of Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama on Sunday. Tropical storm warnings have been issued for parts of Florida and Alabama, saying tropical storm conditions are possible there by early Monday.
