Weather madness hits the Northern Hemisphere as extremes are recorded on both sides of the Atlantic.
While parts of the US are colder than Mars and are expected to have the coldest new years eve in living memoryHolland is enjoying it’s warmest new years eve in living memory as the Limburg town of Ell recorded a temperature of 14 deg C (57. 2 deg F).
The previous record was established in 2006 when it was 13.3 degrees in Woensdrecht.
Holland is currently warmer than parts of Spain, Greece and parts of Italy.
Southern UK is also witnessing record warm temperatures but Scotland is expected to plunge to -2 deg C.
STORM Dylan could pose a “danger to life” today as heavy rain and gusts of up to 80mph are due to hit parts of the UK early today.
Forecasters warned of flying debris from strong winds in Northern England, Northern Ireland and Scotland.
Israeli jets strike Hamas post in Gaza in response to shelling

Israeli jets on Saturday night carried out a second round of airstrikes in southern Gaza in retaliation for three mortar shells fired at Israel on Friday.
The Israeli Air Force struck a Hamas post in the coastal enclave, according to a statement from the IDF just before midnight.
Following the retaliatory raid, the army accused Iran of attempting to spark a war between Israel and Gaza terror groups and putting the lives of Palestinians in danger.
“The serious fire on Friday proved again that Iran, through rogue and extremist terrorist groups, is working to deteriorate the regional situation, is playing with the lives of Gaza residents, and may lead the Strip to an escalation [of hostilities] after years of quiet,” the IDF said.
Assad may have retaken the Syrian Golan, but Iran is pulling the strings

The evacuation of several hundred Syrian rebels from the Beit Jinn area on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights over the weekend puts Israel in an old-new position on the border. Assad’s army is once again at the fences, just like they were from 1967 to 2011.
In the southern Golan, a few pockets of resistance remain from supporters of the Islamic State, or as they are known locally, the Khalid Ibn Walid Army, but beyond that, the Syrians have almost completely retaken control of the border with Israel.
On the other side, no moderate forces remain that would maintain some relative cooperation with Israel or keep the Shiite or Sunni extremists at bay. The actual evacuation took place quietly, and the buses carrying nearly all the rebels and their supporters have already made their way from the slopes of Mount Hermon to the last bastion belonging to the (relatively) moderate opposition, in the Idlib area.
New Year’s Arctic Outbreak to Bring Record Lows to the Plains, Midwest and East Through Tuesday
A long-lived Arctic cold outbreak will be reinforced this New Year’s weekend in the Plains, Midwest, South and East, shattering more daily records into the first days of 2018.
The latest blast of Arctic air plunged into the northern Rockies, Plains and upper Midwest Friday into Saturday.
Wind chills as cold as 55 degrees below zero were recorded in parts of North Dakota Saturday morning.
Minneapolis/St. Paul only managed a high of minus 6 degrees Saturday afternoon, which tied the record-cold high temperature for the date, originally set Dec. 30, 1976.
Services at the Coachella Valley Church begin and end with the Lord’s Prayer. In between, there is the sacrament. “Breathe deep and blow harder,” intoned Pastor Grant Atwell after distributing marijuana joints to 20 worshipers on a recent Sunday. “Nail the insight down, whether you get it from marijuana or prayer. Consider what in your own life you are thankful for.” A man wearing a “Jesus Loves You” baseball cap and toting a shofar, piped up. “Thank you, God, for the weed,” he called out. “I’m thankful for the spirit of cannabis,” a woman echoed from the back. “I am grateful to be alive,” said another young woman, adding that she had recently overdosed — on what, she did not say — for the third time.
The shady experiment was stopped after it was linked to the death of scientist Frank Olson, who plunged to his death from a 13th storey window after being secretly dosed with acid. The operation was officially sanctioned in 1953 during the Cold War as a way of developing mind controlling drugs for use against Soviet spies amid fears enemies had been using truth serums on US prisoners of war. Dozens of experiments were carried out – with the more dangerous tests reserved for terminally ill cancer patients. Some people were dosed for weeks at a time while scientists attempted to develop techniques that would wipe their memory, control their behaviour or encourage them to divulge secrets while under interrogation.
Finding alien life—especially intelligent alien life—would be the biggest scientific breakthrough of any year. Whether evidence was spotted in a distant galaxy by NASA, swung through our solar system on a flying hunk of metal, or caused a UFO sighting here on Earth, the discovery would ripple through both the scientific world and society at large. So we decided to ask the Pope’s chief astronomer about the potential religious significance of such a moment. Guy Consolmagno is an astronomer, a Jesuit, director of the Vatican Observatory, and co-author of Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial?
A scene straight from the Temple of Solomon was recreated on Tuesday evening when Kohanim lit the menorah, but even more wondrous than this sight was the fragrance that accompanied the event: for the first time in 2,000 years, incense was burned in the Biblically prescribed manner. The Temple reenactment took place in the Gan Tekuma park adjacent to the Jewish Quarter inside of Jerusalem’s old city walls at 5:00 PM, just after sunset. The Kohanim (Jewish men of priestly descent) were dressed in priestly garments as described in the Bible.
Suddenly the very real possibility has appeared on the horizon of the robots of the future manipulating human skin cells to create human sperm and human eggs, and from them, using the Ohio discovery of TNT as the basis, creating an entire human-robot baby whose embryo can be nurtured and carried through pregnancy by a mother surrogate. By injecting genetic code into skin cells à la TNT, the Ohio researchers have paved the way for the genetic code of a robot, containing some of the characteristics of the robot, to be passed on to its offspring along with human genetic code. This is how I believe it will be possible, within the foreseeable future, for humans and robots to make babies together.

WAR DRUMS: North Korea says it will continue preparing ‘pre-emptive attacks with nuclear force’
Dec 30, 2017 | 0 |
North Korea promised on Saturday to continue preparing “pre-emptive attacks with nuclear force” in the face of U.S. “blackmail,” according to The Associated Press. “Do not expect any change in its policy,” the state’s official media arm, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said Saturday. “Its entity as an invincible power can neither be undermined nor be stamped out.” KCNA said North Korea has been working toward “bolstering the capabilities for self-defense and pre-emptive attacks with nuclear force,” in response to ongoing “nuclear threat and blackmail and war drills” by the U.S.
North Korea has tested missiles at least 16 times in 2017, and threatened the use of a hydrogen bomb small enough to fit on a missile. More than one North Korean missile flew into the air space of neighboring Japan, and new models have flown to heights that some military analysts predict could reach the mainland U.S. Increased provocations from North Korea have led to the implementation of crippling sanctions from the United Nations in the form of trade and crude oil bans, and bombastic rhetoric from President Trump
China spotted illegally selling oil to North Korea
Dec 30, 2017 | 0 |
U.S. spy satellites reportedly captured photos of Chinese ships illegally selling oil to North Korean boats some 30 times since October. Satellite images released by the U.S. Department of Treasury appeared to show vessels from both countries illegally trading oil in the West Sea, The Chosun Ilbo reported Tuesday, citing South Korean government sources. North Korea was barred in September by the United
Nations Security Council from importing natural gas and had its crude oil imports capped in response to Kim Jong Un’s nuclear missile program. The U.S. Treasury in November also sanctioned North Korea’s Maritime Administration and its transport ministry, in addition to six North Korean shipping and trading companies and 20 of their vessels, in an effort to block the rogue regime’s transportation network
Sharks freeze and Niagara Falls turns to ICE in -37C temperatures colder than MARS as America braces for its chilliest New Year’s Eve in 50 years
Dec 30, 2017 | 0 |
The US is colder than the surface of Mars and Niagara Falls has turned to ice as temperatures plummet to record-breaking lows — leading to frozen sharks washing up on the beach. It is set to be the coldest New Year in living memory as 220 million Americans wrap up to face lows of -37 degrees Celsius. The crippling cold has brought transit systems grinding to a halt in Boston while there were 30 crashes in one Michigan county alone on Friday morning due to treacherous icy roads. Fountains froze over in New
York where New Years Eve partygoers are being warned to lay off the booze and bring some hand warmers to see the famous big ball drop in Times Square as forecasters say it will hit -11C. The National Weather Service has warned of hypothermia and frostbite across the country. A dog in Ohio was found frozen solid on a front porch — while three Atlantic White Sharks have been found frozen solid having been washed up on Cape Cod Bay, Massachusetts over the last three days.

By Brandon Turbeville, Natural Blaze Because mass media and technology are geared to shift from one topic to the next with no real depth or understanding of the subject matter, the vast majority of people, even those who are generally more intelligent, simply cannot remember important events that took place only a year ago. For that reason,

- The statements of Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan — and those of Turks who share his worldview – are further evidence that fundamentalist Muslims oppose Israel’s very existence as a sovereign Jewish state. Their ire over Trump’s Jerusalem declaration has nothing to do with U.S. or Israeli policies.
- Their fury stems from Jews existing in Israel as a powerful nation – not as dhimmis (second-class and persecuted people). Fanatic Muslims cannot get over the fact that Jews still live in, and are in charge of, supposedly their Muslim holy land.
- To justify their rage, these radicals rewrite history. Their claims that Jerusalem is a Muslim holy city, for example, are false. While Jerusalem is mentioned 850 times in the Old Testament, it is not mentioned once in the Koran.

- Refugees and immigrants bring their own cultures, their own assumptions, beliefs, values, fears and hopes from their homelands. One cannot just assume that they wish to integrate or assimilate into the Western culture. Willingness to assimilate might well vary from individual to individual, and from culture to culture.
- A society can only function smoothly if there is a large degree of agreement and commonality regarding to what language people shall speak, what rules they should follow in dealing with one another, and how government is to be established. Where is it written that all cultures are necessarily compatible with one another?
- The success of immigrants in North America is a result of immigrants assimilating to Western culture and society, not due to immigrants clinging to the laws and practices of the lands they have left behind. We welcome them to become Americans and Canadians; we welcome to them to the West.
