    China is attempting to woo Equatorial Guinea into allowing them to build a military base off their coast, according to a report - a move which would give Beijing a foothold in the Atlantic, and deeply worry Washington. U.S. intelligence officials believe that Xi Jinping, China's president, is hoping to convince the president of the West African nation, Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, to allow expansion of an existing port in the city of Bata, and conversion into a military base. Were China to convert the Bata port into a military base, it would enable Beijing to repair and rearm their warships and other naval equipment in the same waters in which the US Eastern Seaboard sits. 'As part of our diplomacy to address maritime-security issues, we have made clear to Equatorial Guinea that certain potential steps involving [Chinese] activity there would raise national-security concerns,' a senior Biden administration official told The Wall Street Journal on Sunday.  Officials have previously mooted a Chinese military base in Atlantic waters as a nightmare scenario for the United States, amid tensions between the two nations over...
    When comedian Kathy Griffin returned to The View for the first time in more than three years on Thursday, she had a lot to talk about. There was the lung cancer surgery that has temporarily altered her voice to sound like Minnie Mouse—her words—and the suicide attempt that stemmed from her ongoing legal troubles surrounding her anti-Trump rhetoric on social media. And of course, there was the continued fallout from the photo Griffin posed for with a fake severed Trump head. At one point during her appearance Thursday morning, guest co-host Ana Navarro asked Griffin what it was like to see Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) “getting a pass” from his own party after tweeting violent imagery aimed at his Democratic colleague Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. But instead of taking the opportunity to attack Gosar directly or, more broadly, conservative hypocrisy, Griffin decided to go after her former employer CNN for a “doubled standard” when it comes to women like her. “I think there's another conversation that we’re not ready to have in this country, unfortunately,” the comedian said. “I...
    Damages from Hurricane Ida are expected to cost up to $95 billion, with many residents in the hardest-hit regions still recovering. The final day of the Atlantic hurricane season has come quietly as no named storms formed after Sept. 25. The season, which runs from June 1 to Nov. 30, was once again incredibly active and—for the second year in a row—resulted in all 21 storm names that were unveiled by the World Meteorological Organization being exhausted. The final storm of the season was Tropical Storm Wanda, which clung to the northeast and resulted in $200 million in damages. Of those storms, seven were classified as hurricanes and four were deemed major storms classified as Category 3 or higher. Inarguably the costliest—and deadliest—storm of the season was Hurricane Ida, which made landfall multiple times as a weaker storm before coalescing into a Category 3 hurricane that hit Port Fourchon, Louisiana, on Aug. 29. It was upgraded to a Category 4 hurricane within an hour of making landfall in Louisiana. Last year saw 30 named storms, marking the most active season in recorded history, though the...
    (CNN)The 2021 Atlantic hurricane season, just like the 2020 season, was one for the record books -- but for different reasons. The biggest similarity was the high number of named storms. The 2021 season became only the third in history to use all of the names on the rotating seasonal list (the previous years were 2020 and 2005).We ended the season with 21 named storms, 7 hurricanes, and 4 major hurricanes (Category 3 or higher). During an average year there would be 14 named storms, 7 hurricanes, and 3 major hurricanes. This year met or exceeded each of those categories, and it was forecast to be that way. The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30.There were four major hurricanes this season: Grace, Ida, Larry, and Sam. The strongest two were Ida and Sam, which both reached Category 4 strength. Grace and Larry peaked as Category 3 storms. The first half of the season was off to the races -- as the US was impacted by eight named storms: Claudette, Danny, Elsa, Fred, Henri, Ida, Mindy,...
    The Atlantic published an essay on the eve of Thanksgiving, calling on readers to utilize family Thanksgiving get-togethers to “deprogram” and sow doubt in conservative relatives, suggesting that one may even succeed in changing their mind or perhaps “need to report [them] to the FBI!” In an essay penned by Daily Beast contributing editor Molly Jong-Fast titled “Deprogram your relatives this Thanksgiving,” the left-wing pundit called the national celebration “terrible” and “no one’s idea of a great time,” though insisted using the time to “deprogram” relatives could make it worthwhile. This Thanksgiving, it’s time to deprogram your relatives @MollyJongFast writes in Wait, What. “Maybe you’ll even change a heart or a mind … Or maybe you’ll need to report a relative to the FBI! Either way, it’s something to do besides just eat.” https://t.co/8Tzoo7YEJe — The Atlantic (@TheAtlantic) November 24, 2021 “Thanksgiving is terrible, and if you at least spend the time trying to deprogram your niece, you won’t be bored or depressed,” she wrote. “[T]hough you might be enraged that Fox News or Infowars has convinced her Trump can ‘save...
    (CNN)The Arctic Ocean has been warming since the onset of the 20th century, decades earlier than instrument observations would suggest, according to new research.The study, published Wednesday in the journal Science Advances, found that the expansion of warm Atlantic Ocean water flowing into the Arctic, a phenomenon known as "Atlantification," has caused Arctic water temperature in the region studied to increase by around 2 degrees Celsius since 1900. Francesco Muschitiello, an author on the study and assistant professor of geography at the University of Cambridge, said the findings were worrisome because the early warming suggests there might be a flaw in the models scientists use to predict how the climate will change.British people are more concerned than ever about climate, ahead of Covid and Brexit, poll shows"The Arctic Ocean has been warming up for much longer than we previously thought," Muschitiello told CNN. "And this is something that's a bit unsettling for many reasons, especially because the climate models that we use to cast projections of future climate change do not really simulate these type of changes."The researchers used marine...
    A Wednesday article in The Atlantic urged readers to use Thanksgiving as an opportunity to “deprogram” their conservative relatives. In May, The New York Times cited a poll in which “15 percent of Americans [said] they think that the levers of power are controlled by a cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles.” I’m no statistician—in fact I’m barely able to add and subtract; https://t.co/Jhk9BcDcuE — Molly Jong-Fast (@MollyJongFast) November 24, 2021 “Maybe you’ll plant the seed, sow just a little doubt about whatever Tucker Carlson is saying now,” Molly Jong-Fast wrote. “Or maybe you’ll need to report a relative to the FBI!” Jong-Fast described Thanksgiving as an invariably disappointing day that does not live up to the “hallmark-movie fantasy.” Jong-Fast’s best Thanksgiving, she wrote, was the one she spent in rehab when she was 19.

    Detained immigrants are at risk on ICE Air’s charters, which face minimal regulation by aviation watchdog agencies. By Angelika Albaladejo for Capital & Main This article was produced in partnership with USA Today. As a private jet hired by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to transport immigrant detainees landed in Louisiana, heavy smoke filled the cabin. It became increasingly hard for the 168 passengers—guards, officers, crew, and undocumented immigrants—to breathe. Some yelled for help as they choked on toxic fumes for eight minutes. But the pilot stuck to normal procedures, taxiing down the airport runway, and parking, as usual, in front of the Alexandria detention center. By the time they escaped the aircraft, many were dizzy; Some were vomiting and required medical attention. Barely a year later, that same quarter-century-old jet caught fire during a crash landing and left shackled passengers struggling to escape as flight attendants discovered that one of the emergency slides didn’t work. These dangerous incidents on immigration flights—and nearly 100 more—during Barack Obama’s second term and Donald Trump’s early years in office are detailed in thousands of pages...
    Lagos Island, Nigeria (CNN)Standing on the sand next to a building hollowed out by the churning sea, Sheriff Elegushi points far out into the Atlantic Ocean to where his ancestral home once stood. "Over there was where we had our tarred road before," Elegushi said. "We also had our electricity poles there and a health center ... You can see the remaining particles," he adds, pointing to the debris.Elegushi -- a leader in the Okun Alfa community on Nigeria's Lagos Island -- spoke to CNN some 1,500 meters from where Alpha Beach, a popular tourist destination, used to be. The people here no longer even call this stretch of sand Alpha Beach. They consider it long gone.The resort's extinction has left the Okun Alfa community and those around it paralyzed, and is just one of many losses for the people here, whose neighborhoods have been ravaged by frequent tidal surges fueled both by ​the climate crisis and questionable urban planning.Remnants of streets and roads remain along the edge of the Okun Alfa community.This is no sleepy island, but ​rather Lagos'...
    The Loire-Atlantique was not set up when the giant Amazon planned to build a 185,000 m2 logistics base. Not to be missed is the city of Montfort (south of Nantes) Amazon Settle. In fact, the US company plans to build a 185,000 m2 logistics base in Montfort (44). Finally, the project was abandoned altogether. Mobilizing associations The reason for this change was the mobilization of associations (especially the Stop Amazon 44 partnership) referred to by the community of municipalities in Grand Lou. The opening of the 185,000-square-meter (14.5-hectare) warehouse would have created about 1,000 jobs. The Community of Grand Liu’s Communities Explains: “Despite the project’s interest and, in particular, significant job creation, elected community representatives, over time, noticed the project’s difficulties, especially as the accumulation of technical and legal constraints greatly altered the initial schedule. At best, the logistics center could not have emerged from the ground until 2025, far from the initial plan, which was weak for all stakeholders.“. Amazon in Solitaire?

Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.An array of legal investigations into the business run by former President Donald Trump picked up new steam in the last two weeks. From Scotland to the tony New York City suburbs, Trump’s sprawling empire is facing new threats on at least three fronts. Stateside, Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance called a second grand jury to focus on the Trump Organization (a previous one has been sitting since 2019 and has already filed charges against the former president’s company and it’s top financial executive). Meanwhile, the DA in Westchester County, north of New York City, is conducting her own investigation into possible misdeeds related to the Trump golf course located there. Across the Atlantic, a Scottish judge heard new arguments that the Trump golf courses in that country should be examined by government investigators using an anti-money-laundering statute. Last summer, when Vance’s first grand jury indicted the Trump Organization...
    (CNN)One of the rarest marine mammals in the world, the North Atlantic right whale, has declined 8% in population over the past year, which researchers call deeply concerning for the species' survival.The North Atlantic Right Whale Consortium announced Monday the whale's population dropped to 336 in 2020. This is the lowest the population has been in nearly 20 years, according to the consortium.North Atlantic right whales may be on edge of extinction. There have been zero births this year"The new population and mortality estimates for North Atlantic right whales are upsetting and alarming," said Whitney Webber, campaign director at Oceana in the United States, in a statement. "Losing nearly 10% of a critically endangered species in one year is drastic and should be a wake-up call that the situation facing these whales is more dire and urgent than ever before."The North Atlantic right whale is one of the world's most endangered large whale species, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

    A piece published in The Atlantic titled "Stop Shopping" is challenging what is supposedly the real problem at the center of the supply chain crisis.  Staff writer Amanda Mull began by summarizing the "similar" news stories that have emerged in recent weeks which involve loads of goods like "toilet paper and exercise bikes and future Christmas presents" being stuck on cargo ships for weeks or months on end how everyone involved from sailors to truckers is working "as fast and hard as they possibly can" but that "it’s not fast or hard enough."

    The Atlantic writer Emma Green was ridiculed Thursday after Babylon Bee editor-in-chief Kyle Mann had to explain the satire site's jokes mocking Democrats and progressives.  Green interviewed Mann for her podcast "The Experiment," in which she sought to "understand the people who think the Babylon Bee's jokes are funny" as well as what the writers at the Christian publication thought they were doing by telling such jokes. "You guys wrote an article in January 2020 that was shared roughly 3 million times, claiming that Democrats called for the American flag to be flown at half-staff when the Iranian general Qasem Soleimani was killed in an American strike. What makes this funny?" Green asked at one point during the interview. "It’s funny because General Soleimani died and then they called for flags to be flown at half-mast. Get it?" Mann responded.  "But that’s what I’m saying. Besides just saying the joke again, what makes it funny?" Green said.  CNN REPORTER SOUNDS ALARM OVER CONSERVATIVE SATRITICAL SITE, GETS PUMMELED ON TWITTER "Do you want me to explain the joke to you? Because...

    Scientists have found evidence suggesting the first visitors to the Azores were Norse sailors arriving 700 years before the Portuguese, who supposedly discovered the string of North Atlantic volcanic islands in the 15th century. Analyzing sediment layers in various lakes in the archipelago, an international team found traces of fecal compounds from non-native ruminants like cows or sheep that dated back to between 700 and 850 A.D.    They also found an increase in charcoal particles, likely indicating explorers or colonists were setting large fires, and a drop in native tree pollen, suggesting someone had burned down parts of the forest to provide grazing land for cattle. The new research counters the long-held belief that 15th century Portuguese sailors were the first humans to arrive in the Azores, 900 miles from the coast of Portugal. 'Even with abundant available historical information allowing us to have a very accurate picture of the past, it is necessary to foster interdisciplinary research among the humanities and natural sciences to fully understand our history,' co-author Santiago Giralt, a paleoclimatologist at Geosciences Barcelona, said in a statement. ...
    The Atlantic, the magazine and multi-platform publisher run by a company owned by Steve Jobs' widow, is heaping brutal criticism on Facebook, making a rough week for the social media giant even worse.  Columnist Adrienne LaFrance referred to Facebook as a 'hostile foreign power' and was heavily critical of CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a column titled The Biggest Autocracy on Earth published Monday.  LaFrance cited 'its single-minded focus on its own expansion; its immunity to any sense of civic obligation; its record of facilitating the undermining of elections; its antipathy toward the free press; its rulers’ callousness and hubris; and its indifference to the endurance of American democracy.' 'Facebook is a lie-disseminating instrument of civilizational collapse,' she adds. 'It is designed for blunt-force emotional reaction, reducing human interaction to the clicking of buttons. The algorithm guides users inexorably toward less nuanced, more extreme material, because that’s what most efficiently elicits a reaction. Users are implicitly trained to seek reactions to what they post, which perpetuates the cycle.' 'Facebook executives have tolerated the promotion on their platform of propaganda, terrorist recruitment, and...
    The wrath of Hurricane Sam - the most powerful storm currently on Earth - was on full display Thursday after an unmanned 'saildrone' recorded winds of 145mph and 50-foot-tall waves as it churned in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. It's the first time such footage has been captured by a water-based drone from the ocean surface in the middle of such a ferocious weather system, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), which operated the device.  The drone is equipped with a specially designed 'hurricane wing,' enabling it to operate in extreme wind conditions.  Saildrone's vessels are 23 feet long and have four cameras on them. They are able to measure wind as well as the temperature of the ocean and the air.  National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has released footage from the inside of Hurricane Sam, a Category 4 storm barreling across the Atlantic A Saildrone Explorer SD 1045, an uncrewed surface vehicle, was able to get into the center of the storm with 145mph winds and 50 foot waves The footage offers an unprecedented sight...

    LOS LLANOS DE ARIDANE, Canary Islands (AP) — Lava from a volcano on Spain’s Canary Islands has reached the sea after 10 days of wiping out hundreds of homes and causing the evacuation of thousands of residents. Columns of steam that experts had warned could contain toxic gases shot upward when the bright red molten rock tumbled into the Atlantic Ocean at 11 p.m. on Tuesday. The area had been evacuated for several days as authorities waited for the lava to reach the water. Its erratic flows and changes in the terrain had slowed its progress. Lava flows from the Sept. 19 eruption on La Palma have destroyed at least 589 buildings, mostly homes on the island’s southwestern side that were caught on a slope below the volcano. No deaths or serious injuries have been reported, thanks to the prompt evacuations of over 6,000 people in the first hours after last week’s eruption. La Palma, home to about 85,000 people, is part of the volcanic Canary Islands, an archipelago off northwest Africa. The island is roughly 35 kilometers (22 miles)...
    A former Royal Marine who has a fear of the water has become the first person to row unsupported across the Atlantic via the treacherous northern route.

Given that this turn occurs after day 5 and until then it will be a major hurricane moving northwest in the Atlantic, it is something to continue to monitor.

    The Atlantic staff writer David Frum disparaged Donald Trump voters in a new interview when he said counties with a "lot of obesity and drug abuse" voted strongly for the Republican. "The Republican Party is an elderly party, it’s a party of people with chronic health problems.

    WEEKEND UPDATE: It may not be a "perfect" storm, but a random cluster of showers and thunderstorms that became Tropical Storm Odette will be good news for our area this weekend, meteorologist Joe Cioffi said Friday. "The obvious one is that it is moving northeast and headed out to sea," Cioffi said. "It is also going to allow a cold front to our north to move through Saturday night and bring lower humidity for Sunday and Monday." Going into the weekend, six of the named storms in the Atlantic this year accelerated into hurricanes. Three of those — Grace, Ida and Larry — became powerhouses. Odette isn't pack much of a punch. As of early Friday evening, its sustained winds were barely 40 mph, the National Hurricane Center reported. That means conditions will be dry but cloudy overnight, with skies beginning to clear by morning -- "a positive development," Cioffi said. Then it begins to warm up. "Odette will be pulling away Saturday passing southeast of Cape Cod by a fair distance," Cioffi said. "Look for increasing amounts of sunshine, relatively...

It's also got a bit of a weird power structure.  The Tampa Bay Lightning, Toronto Maple Leafs, Boston Bruins and Florida Panthers are considered by most to be top-end teams in the league. On the other hand, most would consider the Detroit Red Wings, Ottawa Senators and Buffalo Sabres some of the worst teams in the league.

    The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Tuesday that Hurricane Larry remains a large, powerful Category 3 storm that could threaten Bermuda later in the week. In its latest report, the hurricane center said Larry is still 1,340 kilometers southeast of Bermuda with maximum sustained winds of about 195 km/h and is moving toward the northwest. It is a large storm, with hurricane force winds extending outward up to 110 kms from the center, and tropical storm winds extending outward up to 295 kms. Larry is forecast to approach Bermuda during the next couple of days as a large and powerful hurricane, bringing a risk of strong winds, heavy rainfall and coastal flooding to the island by Thursday.  Significant swells from Larry should reach the U.S. east coast and Canada’s Atlantic coast by midweek and continue affecting those shores through the end of the week.  The swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. A U.S. Air Force hurricane hunter aircraft was scheduled to fly into Larry’s well-formed eye early Tuesday, and the forecasters are waiting for that...
