El Paso, Texas, and However, On Monday, the former Arkansas governor and twice Republican presidential candidate  Despite all those who are denouncing the idea of prayers for the victims (do a Google search for “Thoughts and prayers are not enough” and see how many hits you get), I will continue to pray for the victims and their families and for an end to this mindless violence, and I hope you will, too. In fact, … I would posit that the lack of thought and prayers is probably the single biggest factor in what is behind them.

Puerto Rico thrown into turmoil as supreme court ousts new governor

Removal of Pedro Pierluisi, who was appointed by disgraced Ricardo Rossell, clears way for justice secretary Wanda Vzquez to succeed him Puerto Ricos supreme court on Wednesday overturned the swearing-in of Pedro Pierluisi as the islands governor less than a week ago, clearing the way for the justice secretary, Wanda Vzquez, to take up the post after weeks of turmoil. The unanimous ruling said Pierluisi must step aside immediately. The high courts decision, which cannot be appealed, was expected to unleash new demonstrations and deepen the tumult because many Puerto Ricans have said they do not want Vzquez as governor. Pierluisi said previously he would respect whatever ruling was made. Pierluisi was appointed secretary of state by the then governor, …

There Could Be 100 Million Black Holes Lurking In The Milky Way

Black holes are talked about so often in astronomy that it may come as a surprise to discover that we know only a few dozens of them inhabiting the Milky Way. Apart from the central supermassive black hole, Sagittarius A*, all the others are at most 15 times the mass of the Sun, but statistically, there should be many more. Maybe tens of millions more. Finding all these black holes is currently next to impossible thanks to a very distinctive property: They are black. All the known ones have companions or have been caught gobbling up material that led to emitting light, which can be observed. As reported in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, astronomers do have …

‘Too bad:’ Trump reacts to burglary at Cummings’ Baltimore home after week of attacks

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump appeared to sarcastically call out a break-in at Rep. Elijah Cummings’ Baltimore home after a week of attacking the prominent African American lawmaker over the conditions of his Baltimore district – even comparing the city’s murder rate to third world countries. Cummings confirmed the incident in a statement Friday, but said that the individual did not gain access into his home. “I was notified of the intrusion by my security system, and I scared the intruder away by yelling before the person gained entry into the residential portion of the house,” Cummings said. “I thank the Baltimore Police Department for their response and ask that all further inquiries be directed to them.” Trump attacks Cummings and …

In case you have no idea what I’m talking about, Olivia Jade is Lori Loughlin’s daughter, and she was one of the biggest players in the infamous college admissions scandal that broke earlier this year. After Olivia Jade’s time on the USC rowing team was exposed as a total scam, she went totally dark on social media. Her YouTube channel has been dormant for months, and before today, her last Instagram post was in February. I didn’t care much about Olivia Jade before the scandal broke out, but it’s fair to say that her whereabouts have become sort of an obsession …

Kentucky is using ‘shocking’ boats to show just how bad its Asian carp problem is

(CNN)Asian carp are a serious problem, and Kentucky is getting creative in dealing with the invasive species. These carp were stunned, harvested and sold to buyers who make fertilizer, fish bait and even food products for humans. How Asian carp took over Don’t feel too bad.

They’ve inundated waterways along the Mississippi watershed and the Illinois and Missouri rivers. Carp populations grow at a rapid rate, and all their eating reduces the amount of food for other fish in the ecosystem. “They were allowed to bring Asian and silver carp in to take care of algal blooms, and they used the …
