1. Blame starts to fly over Mexico quake collapses08:46[−]

Blame starts to fly over Mexico quake collapsesAllegations of negligent construction and poor oversight began to fly Monday after deadly building collapses during Mexico's earthquake, as hope faded of finding more survivors of a disaster that killed more than 300 people. Mexico City's mayor, the education minister and the top official for the district all traded blame after reports that the Enrique Rebsamen primary school operated using false documents. "If confirmed, it would be very serious," Education Minister Aurelio Nuno told TV network Televisa, saying he had ordered an investigation.

Trump tweets about 'destroyed' Puerto Rico after criticismPresident Donald Trump acknowledged late Monday that Puerto Rico was "in deep trouble," after facing blistering criticism for focusing much of his attention on a bitter feud with NFL players instead of the devastated US territory. Hurricanes Maria and Irma killed 13 people on the island -- with Maria almost completely destroying telecommunication networks last week. "Texas & Florida are doing great but Puerto Rico, which was already suffering from broken infrastructure & massive debt, is in deep trouble," Trump tweeted.

8. US should 'negotiate with the Taliban' says cricketer turned politician Imran KhanПн., 25 сент.[−]

US should 'negotiate with the Taliban' says cricketer turned politician Imran KhanCricket legend and potential Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan on Monday criticized the United States’ new strategy for Afghanistan and said that the US should negotiate with the Taliban instead of aiming to destroy it. "More fighting and bloodshed is not the answer," Khan said in an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, "I said it 17 years ago and I am still saying this now," Khan, who is considered a likely contender for premier after next year’s parliamentary elections, rejected U.S. President Donald Trump’s allegation that his country harbors extremists. He said Pakistanis "felt hurt" when Trump blamed Pakistan for sheltering militants while unveiling the U.S. strategy for Afghanistan in August. Khan noted that the Taliban have safe havens in Afghanistan and that Pakistan is being subjected the group’s attacks launched from Afghan soil. U.S. officials have long said that Pakistan turns a blind eye to militants operating along the porous Afghan border. He said it was unfair to blame Pakistan Washington not defeating the Taliban. "I think Donald Trump’s policy is deeply flawed," he said, rejecting the U.S.’s demand that Pakistan do more to combat the extremists. Deadliest insurgent attacks in Pakistan "I think Pakistan has done enough. I think now the others players involved need to do more," Khan said. Khan voiced his opposition to the U.S.’s drone strikes on Pakistan, which he said were carried out "with the complicity of the government of Pakistan." He said that if he comes to power, he would "clearly tell the United States that this is not a way to win the war on terror," and that the drone strikes were "actually flaming anti-American feelings in Pakistan." "Drone attacks lead to collateral damage. If (they) were such a successful strategy, they would be winning the war," Khan said. Khan added that militants often retaliate after drone strikes by targeting civilians and security forces in Pakistan. Imran Khan and his wife Reham Khan pose for a photograph during their wedding ceremony Credit: Pakistan Thereek Insaf (PTI) Party/AFP Khan went on to criticize India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the strained relations between Islamabad and New Delhi, saying Modi had not "risen above his communal thinking." His comments came following recent skirmishes between Pakistani and Indian forces along the disputed region of Kashmir, which is divided between them and claimed by both. Khan called for an early solution to the Kashmir issue, over which Pakistan and India have fought two of their three wars after gaining independence from Britain in 1947. Khan also dismissed western "propaganda" that Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal could fall into the hands of militants. He said Pakistan’s army was properly safeguarding the country’s nuclear arsenals. Discussing the country’s current climate, Khan said he believed ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif had no future in the country’s politics. Sharif resigned recently when Pakistan’s Supreme Court acting on a petition from Khan disqualified him over allegations of corruption. Khan said he would not pardon any corrupt figures if his countrymen voted him to power in the 2018 elections.

If nothing else, farming out sub-hunting to the robots will make chasing subs a bit less dull.

Eurofighter pilot attempting loop-the-loop in front of his parents and girlfriend dies after crashing into seaThis is the terrible moment that a fighter pilot lost his life after crashing his Eurofighter into the sea during an air show off the coast of Italy. Capt Gabriele Orlandi, 36, was attempting to perform a loop-the-loop in his 85million euro Eurofighter Typhoon when he apparently misjudged the manoeuvre and smashed into the water, a few hundred yards from the coast. The Italian air force pilot was performing the stunt in front of a large crowd that included his girlfriend and his parents at the air show in Terracina, south of Rome. The Eurofighter was executing a spectacular loop-the-loop when it crashed into the sea Credit: NurPhoto His girlfriend had to be taken to hospital and treated for severe shock. Capt Orlandi died on impact and his body was recovered by navy divers. He had more than a decade’s experience as a pilot and had trained in the United States with American Top Gun flyers. The pilot died on impact Credit: NurPhoto The air show was immediately suspended after the accident and two investigations were opened, one by the air force and another by civilian magistrates in the nearby town of Latina. “A day of joy turned into a day of great sadness,” said General Enzo Vecciarelli, a senior air force commander. “Our deepest condolences go to the relatives of Capt Orlandi.”

The look was extra glossy at Versace, where the models sported decorative hair pins, and slightly more romantic at Dolce & Gabbana, where the hair was softer, more flyaway, and accessorized with flowers and bejewelled headbands. Shorter, more dramatic styles saw a catwalk resurgence, with Moschino dressing its models in gamine pixie crop wigs, and Giorgio Armani championing the bowl cut.

Russian state agents behind 'grave violations' in Crimea: UNRussian state agents have committed serious abuses, including torture, in Crimea, the UN said Monday, warning that the rights situation in the annexed peninsula had "significantly deteriorated" under Moscow's occupation. In a fresh report, the UN human rights agency said that Russia's annexation of the Black Sea peninsula in March 2014 had set off a broad crackdown targeting Ukrainian institutions and culture. The report found evidence of "grave human rights violations, such as arbitrary arrests and detentions, enforced disappearances, ill-treatment and torture, and at least one extra-judicial execution", the UN statement said.

Rather than sending them into harm’s way in the Middle East or into the crowded, dangerous waters of the Western Pacific, the Navy would assign the 4,100-ton Perrys to the Caribbean in “a limited drug-interdiction mode,” Spencer said.

33. Couple's dream wedding at Costco is one we can aspire toПн., 25 сент.[−]

Couple's dream wedding at Costco is one we can aspire toAh, Costco: Where you can buy your wedding cake, and eat it there too. As Sue Berkeley and Eli Bob from Sydney, Australia, did, when they got married in the Casula store in front of 90 of their friends and family on Saturday. SEE ALSO: Wedding guest shares photo of five other people wearing same dress While it might not be the most romantic of locations, the couple said they spend a lot of time in the aisles of the bulk buy supermarket, and so the choice to have it there came naturally. "I get to spend another day at Costco, that I love," Berkeley told A Current Affair. "Where else can I get married to the one I love, in a place that I love, surrounded by the people I love." A post shared by Richard Smith (@rps88a) on Sep 22, 2017 at 10:58pm PDT A post shared by Nick Triantafillou (@xelfer) on Sep 22, 2017 at 5:47pm PDT And so Berkeley walked down the aisle, past the tyre department, to exchange their vows in the food court. We haven't even got to the best part of the whole affair, and that's the food: It cost the couple under A$10 a head to feed the wedding, which consists of the admittedly droolworthy Costco food court staples like pizza, hot dogs and pies. Oh, and unlimited fountain soda, of course. While the couple aren't the first to marry in a Costco, they're certainly the first in Australia to do so. If you are looking to have your next wedding in one, the offer of a Costco wedding is for "special guests" only, sadly for the rest of us mere mortals hoping for an all-you-can-eat feast at the supermarket... oh and true love, of course.

North Korea 'blows up US aircraft carrier and jets' in new propaganda videoNorth Korean state media has released a new video depicting the destruction of US aircraft and warships and warning that any attack on the North will see US forces "head to the grave". The 99-second clip was released on Sunday by the DPRK Today news site, just hours after two US Air Force B-1B Lancer bombers flew off the coast of North Korea in a show of force. Accompanied by US fighters based in Okinawa, the bombers flew further north of the Demilitarised Zone that divides the Korean Peninsula than any US military aircraft in the 21st century, according to the Pentagon. A screenshot of the North Korean video showing the US carrier being blown up The North Korean propaganda video begins with pictures of President Donald Trump, describing him as a "mad man". It goes on to show a series of Pukguksong missiles being fired from mobile launch vehicles before an F-35 Raptor fighter and a nuclear-capable Lancer bomber are destroyed by computer-generated explosions. The footage goes on to show a missile being fired from a submerged submarine before striking the USS Carl Vinson. The 103,000-tonne aircraft carrier is the flagship of Carrier Strike Croup 1 and conducted drills with another nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, the USS Ronald Reagan, off North Korea in June. North Korean missile ranges It has also carried out exercises, utilising its 90 fixed wing aircraft and helicopters, with Korean navy units. The footage shows USS Carl Vinson engulfed in flames after the missile strike, with subtitles stating, "Should F-35, B-1B or the Carl Vinson lead the US attack, they will head to the grave in that order".

One week to cross a street: how IS pinned down Filipino soldiers in MarawiBy Tom Allard MARAWI CITY, Philippines (Reuters) - With a grimace, Brigadier General Melquiades Ordiales of the Philippines 1st Marine Brigade recounted the painful gains made against Islamist militants in Marawi City. "It took us one week from this point to that point, to cross that street," he said, casting his eyes to the other side of a two-lane road in the heart of the southern Philippines city, lined by three-storey buildings shattered by air strikes and the remaining walls riddled with bullet holes. "It was really very, very tough." The grinding urban warfare that has destroyed much of the grandly named Sultan Omar Dianalan Boulevard shows just how much of a threat Islamic State is to the Philippines and potentially other countries in the Southeast Asian region.

German vote could doom Merkel-Macron deal on EuropeBy Noah Barkin BERLIN (Reuters) - Weakened by the worst result for her party since 1949 and facing a more fractious political landscape at home, Germany's Angela Merkel could be forced to rein in plans to re-shape Europe together with France's Emmanuel Macron. Merkel's conservatives garnered more support than any other party in the German election on Sunday, projections showed, ensuring that she will return for a fourth term as chancellor. Over the next four years, Merkel will also have to cope with a more confrontational opposition force in the Alternative for Germany (AfD), a eurosceptic, anti-immigration party that rode a wave of public anger after her decision to open Germany's borders to hundreds of thousands of migrants in 2015.

50. Nibiru: How the nonsense Planet X Armageddon and Nasa fake news theories spread globallyВс., 24 сент.[−]

Nibiru: How the nonsense Planet X Armageddon and Nasa fake news theories spread globally  Nibiru conspiracy theories about the end of the world have been circulating online for more than two decades, with the latest dubious prophecy predicting the apocalypse - September 23, 2017. Planet X, or Nibiru, refers to a mythological planet in our solar system that will supposedly crash into Earth and wipe out the human race, however it has been consistently dismissed by Nasa and other experts as an internet hoax. Despite absolutely no scientific evidence to back up the suggestions of a rogue planet getting rapidly closer to Earth, myths about Planet X continue to be perpetuated online. End of the world (23 Sept 2017) Of course, this isn't the first time time harbingers of doom have predicted the end of time; Nasa also had to deny the existence of Nibiru in 2012. Throughout history there have been similar claims, but thankfully none of them so far have been proved correct. How did conspiracy theories about Planet X start? Online chatter about Nibiru began back in 1995 when Wisconsin native Nancy Lieder created the alien-conspiracy website ZetaTalk. Ms Lieder claims to be a conduit for aliens from the Zeta Reticuli star system, 39.17 light years from Earth, who have warned her about the Nibiru catastrophe. The conspiracy theory hasn’t gone away, with so-called Christian numerologist David Meade claiming Planet X is heading in our direction. Meade believes October could see the start The Rapture and a seven-year tribulation period of widescale natural disasters. Why September 23? It has been claimed an unusual celestial arrangement mirroring signs from the Bible’s Book of Revelation, September 23, will signal the start of the end of the world. However, the EarthSky blog notes there will be “nothing unique” about the sun, moon and planets on the date. “In the past 1,000 years, this same event has happened at least four times already, in 1827, 1483, 1293, and 1056,” explains astronomer Christopher M. Graney. Haven’t we been here before? Mars, with Earth visible in background Credit: Getty This isn't the first time the apocalypse has been predicted: 1844 American Baptist teacher William Miller first shared publicly his belief in the coming Second Advent of Jesus Christ in 1833, predicting he would return in the year 1843. The Millerites were his followers and Millerism became a national movement, however when Jesus didn’t arrive, October 22, 1844, became known as the Great Disappointment. 1997 Twenty years ago, 29 members of Heaven’s Gate, a UFO religious millenarian group, committed suicide with the aim of boarding a UFO they believed was hiding behind the Hale-Bopp comet before the supposed end of the world. 2003 Planet X was also supposedly discovered by the ancient Sumerian people and was meant to hit Earth in 2003, but never arrived. “This catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003, but when nothing happened the doomsday date was moved forward to December 2012 and linked to the end of one of the cycles in the ancient Mayan calendar at the winter solstice in 2012,” say Nasa. 2011 The end of the world was also supposed to arrive on 21 May 2011, with Christian doomsday prophet Harold Camping predicting the Rapture would begin at 18:00 in each of the world's time zones, wiping out nay-sayers with rolling earthquakes as believers ascended to heaven. 2012 Nasa had to debunk an ancient Maya prophecy theory about the world ending back in 2012. The Mayan connection “was a misconception from the very beginning,” astrophysicist Dr. John Carlson said at the time. “The Maya calendar did not end on Dec. 21, 2012, and there were no Maya prophecies foretelling the end of the world on that date." 2015 Chris McCann, leader and founder of the eBible fellowship, said the world would be engulfed and destroyed by a great fire on October 7. McCann said he was "surprised" by the outcome and wrote a blog post entitled: "A response to being incorrect with the prediction that, in all likelihood, the world would end on October 7." What does Nasa say this time? Nasa is confident the world won't end Credit: AFP Nasa has definitively dismissed wild theories about Nibiru as pseudoscience, issuing a number of statements denying its existence. “Various people are ‘predicting’ that world will end on September 23 when another planet collides with Earth,” say Nasa. “The planet in question, Nibiru, doesn't exist, so there will be no collision. The story of Nibiru has been around for years (as has the 'days of darkness' tale) and is periodically recycled into new apocalyptic fables.” They add: “Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an internet hoax. There is no factual basis for these claims. If Nibiru or Planet X were real and headed for an encounter with the Earth … astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye. Obviously, it does not exist. “Eris is real, but it is a dwarf planet similar to Pluto that will remain in the outer solar system; the closest it can come to Earth is about 4 billion miles.” Nasa fake news and the days of darkness tale A fake news story being widely shared online suggests Nasa has confirmed Earth will experience 15 days of complete darkness in November 2015. Another fake news video claims that Nasa has found Nibiru and confirmed it is heading straight for us. Debunking website Snopes explains the “days of darkness” tale is a “bit of fake news lifted from an older viral rumour” They say that it “had already been around the online block several times before,” adding, “it has long since become an evergreen online hoax — a jape that is typically resurrected a few times a year by dubious websites that simply update the time span for the alleged ‘period of darkness’ and send it winging around the internet again. What do other experts say? Nick Pope, who used to investigate UFOs and other mysteries for the Ministry of Defence, says “Nibiru doesn't exist”. He adds: “The world won't end on September 23. Shame on the people promoting this hoax in the name of evangelical Christianity.” Mr Pope told The Telegraph: “I'm certain Nibiru doesn't exist because if there really was a rogue planet heading for Earth, due to hit on Saturday, it would be visible to the naked eye by now. “Furthermore, astronomers would have been aware of its presence for years, both through direct observation and through gravitational effects on other planets in the solar system.” Why are some people so keen to promote this conspiracy? “The people promoting this prediction seem to be doing so because of religious belief, tenuously linking the recent eclipse with Biblical passages, including one from the Book of Revelations,” Pope says. “I suspect the reasons include self-publicity and the desire to promote their particular brand of evangelical Christianity.” Is there anything we should be worried about? “All this isn't to say that there aren't some existential threats out there, but if people want to worry about something, they should probably worry about North Korean missiles, or about Iran acquiring nuclear weapons, not about Nibiru,” Pope adds. “There have been countless previous predictions of the end of the world. Self-evidently all these predictions were false. September 23 will pass without incident, just as we safely negotiated all the previous dates that had been put forward as doomsday.” Google Home spreads bizarre conspiracy theory A prepper's guide to everything you need to survive the apocalypse
