1…………> Straw Classrooms: Oaxaca, MX
The social development agency Coneval has reported that out of the 14,000 inhabitants of San Mateo del Mar, Oaxaca, Mexico, 89% live in poverty, and 40% are behind in education levels, a statistic that explains why the Emiliano Zapata primary school damaged in an earthquake September 7 was rebuilt by the parents of some 400 students that called it home.
Led by dedicated principal Juan Salomón Canales, citizens rebuild the school temporarily with straw, palm fronds and wood in the traditional way of the indigenous Ikojts people.
“The government promises many things but never delivers. We were told the school rooms were going to be rebuilt, but they’ve done nothing. [And] the children were unable to return to the school because the constant tremors continue to damage it,” Mr. Canales said.
2…………>California Burning: No End In Sight
The third largest fire in California history burned 269,000 acres and destroyed over 1,000 structures as it continued to expand across 10,000 acres late last week.
Cal Fire, the state’s fire emergency agency, estimated the Thomas Fire is only 40 percent contained after burning for nearly two weeks, and said it threatens an additional 18,000 structures.
Coastal communities in Santa Barbara county has been so far spared from the inferno, but the Thomas Fire has shown no sign of relenting as strong winds continue to propel the blaze. The intense Santa Ana winds are expected to gust to 55 mph (88 kph) overnight, according to the National Weather Service.
3…………> Applied Global Warming: Philippines
At least 32 people were killed and 46 residents are missing in an island province in central Philippines after Typhoon Kai-tak brought heavy rains that triggered landslides, cutting power supplies in many areas, forcing the cancellation of several flights, stranding more than 15,000 people in various ports in the region and forcing nearly 88,000 people to seek shelter in evacuation centres.
Many areas were flooded, damaging crops and infrastructure, and President Rodrigo Duterte is expected to visit the worst-hit typhoon areas later in the day to assess the damage.
3…………> The “Yuk Factor”: Water Cremation
A crematorium in Britain hopes to be the first in the country to use a chemical unit called the Resomator which is filled with mixture of water heated to 125C and potassium hydroxide, allowed to dissolve the body in few hours and after collecting the residue remnants of the deceased, the rest of the water is flushed down the drains. Simple, ain’t it? But the proposals has ignited a storm of protests by environmentalists who argue that the residual water of dead bodies will then contaminate public purification plants thus placing the health of the general public in danger.

Gold up to 1265 and USD/CHF down to 0.9859 due to tax bill passage. Translation? As the dollar goes down, we have to wait and see if the new Fed Chair Jerome Powell will continue pressuring gold and the Eurasian block with it down below $1000/oz in an economic WW3. Watch sell stop at 24,600. The real shocker bibi1581.com had been predicting for months, the relentless treachery of dedicated CFR, Soros Planetary Commission and KBI(Koch Bureau of Investigation) soldiers Paul “Granny Crusher” Ryan and Mitch “Harry’s Twin” McConnell became evident weeks ago when none of Trump’s grandiose projects were passed by the criminal consortium of Establishment GOP and Unified Party USA.We have to wait and see if new Fed chair Powell will attempts to destroy Eurasian block by sending gold prices below 1000, despite the fact both Russia and China have been buying their whole gold production in local gold backed currency instead of money printing machines. In other words, US has lost controls of the precious metals complex, and with Trump’s infrastructure and tax cut campaign the National debt will soon be at, or over 30 trillion dollars, since D.C. swamp alligators have no intention dropping their pet projects.

5…………> Sexploitation: Queens
Sean Price, 39, a man from Queens, New York was convicted for enticing a 16-year-old girl from Australia to travel from abroad to engage in sexual activity. After meeting her online, he encouraged her to join him in New York, Price wired the girl over $900 to purchase a plane ticket to fly to Los Angeles in late March of this year. The superseding indictment charged him with interstate and foreign enticement to engage in sexual activity, interstate and foreign transportation of a minor to engage in sexual activity, a Mann Act violation, and attempted sexual exploitation of a child.
“Price lured a teenage girl across the globe to satisfy his own sordid desires, taking advantage of her youth and preying on her vulnerability,” stated HSI Special Agent-in-Charge Angel Melendez. “These cases are a harsh reminder of the importance of educating our young people on the dangers of sexual predators on the internet. HSI New York’s Trafficking in Persons Unit maintains an unwavering commitment to investigate these crimes around the world, targeting and arresting predators who transport minors for sex. And we continue to collaborate with our global partners, like the Australian Federal Police, while relying on local partnerships as with the NYPD.”
“The jury has held defendant Sean Price accountable for his predatory conduct, which included luring a teenage girl from her home in Australia across the world to the United States so that he could engage in an illicit sexual relationship with her,” stated Acting United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, Bridget M. Rohde. “Today’s verdict should send a strong message that this Office, together with our law enforcement partners, will work tirelessly to identify those who would sexually exploit minors and prosecute those abusers to the fullest extent of the law.”
When sentenced, Price faces up to life in prison.
