We Asked Insurance Workers Where They’d Live In The US To Avoid Future Natural Disasters Here’s What They Said

There is mounting evidence that climate change influences major events like heat waves, droughts, and heavy rains, which have become more frequent and severe. While recent weather events haven’t prevented home buyers from purchasing property near the coast, insurance professionals are beginning to view natural disasters as a major economic threat. Last year, a survey of nearly 270 risk managers from around the globe identified climate change as today’s top financial risk, behind cyber attacks and terrorism. The survey was conducted shortly after the release of a UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, which found that the world’s temperatures could escalate to catastrophic levels by 2040. The resulting damage could trigger a $54 trillion global economic loss and force many …

Archaeologists Mystified By Newly Dated 5,000-Year-Old Human-Made Islands

Hundreds of ancient human-made miniature islands speckle the waterways of Scotland and Ireland. Once believed to have been built and repurposed as dwellings over the course of 2,500 years, new radiocarbon dating reported in the journal Antiquity shifts that timeline by thousands of years, suggesting that these “crannogs” date back to the time of Stone Henge and potentially served as ritualistic offerings. It started in 2012 when a local resident decided to dive around the lake beds of one of these islets located in the Outer Hebrides. During his time underwater, he found well-preserved and nearly intact ceramic pots scattered around the island. Further exploration by researchers found similar pottery at five other crannog sites in the area. According to …

Sometimes, Silence Is The Best Revenge

Holly Riordan Updated June 15, 2019 By Elliott Dunning I know you want to write out a long, elaborate text explaining exactly why you’re upset with this other person. I know you want to show up at their door, screaming about how you cannot believe what they’ve done to you. I know you want to slash their tires, toss a drink at their face, sleep with their best friend. I know you want some sort of revenge, some sort of closure, some sort of way to deal with your anger. This probably isn’t what you want to hear while you’re all fired up, but sometimes, silence is the best form of revenge. Your silence speaks a thousand words. It shows …

Gwyneth Paltrow Completely Forgot She Was In ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ – And It’s Hilarious! – Perez Hilton

Imagine breathing such rarified air that you don’t even remember being in a huge blockbuster movie. TWO YEARS AGO. Gwyneth Paltrow got so Gwyneth during her guest spot on Jon Favreau‘s new show, you’d think it was scripted. Favreau decided to bring his love of cooking to Netflix, along with some of his very famous friends. First up? The actress he cast as Pepper Potts to Robert Downey Jr.‘s Tony Stark when he directed the very first Iron Man back in 2008. As the cameras roll, and Gwyneth is allowed to just be Gwyneth, hilarity ensues. Things get hilariously awkward when the movie star asks the Lion King filmmaker: “What is this TV show for?” We don’t really know whether she’s asking where it will air or …

Ceres Huge Ahuna Mons Formed From A Bubble Of Salty Mud

When NASA’s Dawn spacecraft arrived at Ceres it spotted several striking features, including Ahuna Mons, the largest mountain on the dwarf planet. It has a maximum height of about 5 kilometers (3.1 miles). Given that Ceres is less than 1,000 kilometers (620 miles) across, Ahuna Mons sticks out quite a bit. For scale, it would be like having a mountain 67 kilometers (42 miles) tall on Earth. The peculiar formation emerged from smooth terrain and has bright streaks running from the top to the bottom of its slopes. There is no other mountain like it on Ceres and researchers believe it is the product of a curious geological phenomenon. As reported in Nature Geoscience, researchers think that Ahuna Mons was …

Salvini has been ‘following’ Trump’s immigration policies, but he will not separate children

(CNN)Migration will be top of the agenda when Italy’s hard-line Interior Minister Matteo Salvini meets US Vice President Mike Pence during a trip to Washington. Salvini shares Trump’s concerns about Iran, saying Italy has stopped working on an economic basis with the Middle Eastern country. “This is a country that believes that they can erase another country (Israel) from the face of the earth,” Salvini said. “This cannot be someone we can have a dialogue with,” adding that the Iran nuclear deal, from which the US is partially withdrawing from, should “be reconsidered.” Salvini told CNN he hopes to also speak to Pence about the “political situation in Libya, Iran, Venezuela” and potential partnerships between both countries.

The Lives Of Elephants And Frogs Are Surprisingly Interconnected

What do frogs and elephants have in common? At first glance, it might seem like these two creatures are worlds apart, but a team of biologists has recently described how this unlikely duo actually share a deeply interconnected bond in the ecosystem of southeast Asia. If you come across the rain-filled footprint of an Asian elephant, there’s a surprisingly high chance that it will be filled with tadpoles and frog eggs. This is because these deep grooves provide the amphibians with the perfect nutrient-rich refuge during the dry season. Furthermore, the trail of footprints might even serve as stepping stones for the young frogs to make their way across the land towards other frog populations, like an inter-lake amphibious highway. Reporting …

In a press conference to mark her departure, Sanders said she will continue to be one of the most outspoken and loyal supporters of the president and his …

Ireland ‘unwise’ to pick a fight over fishing

It is an eroded volcano that lies 260 miles (418km) west of the Western Isles and is only 100ft (30m) wide and 70ft (21m) high above the sea. ‘Very unwise’ The UK claimed Rockall in 1955, but Ireland, Iceland and Denmark have previously challenged that claim. The row between Scotland and Ireland broke out after increased activity from Irish vessels around Rockall and the Scottish government has said it will take “enforcement action” against Irish vessels found fishing within 12 miles of Rockall from Saturday. Mr Armstrong told the BBC the SFF was behind the move. Image caption Bertie Armstrong from the SFF believes it is a black-and-white case of illegality A spokeswoman from the Scottish government said: “Irish vessels …

15 Ways To Distract Your Mind When You Cant Stop Thinking About The Past

Kirstie Taylor Updated June 12, 2019 By Nisha When we invariably replay how a situation went in our head; when we wonder where everything went wrong; when we can’t stop thinking about how much we messed up; those are all known as ruminating thoughts. They’re the thoughts we replay over and over in our heads, most of the time causing us a lot of unnecessary pain. It’s easy to get stuck in the past. Our minds work funnily: they seem to think that if we give something enough attention, it’ll either give us the answer or somehow makes us feel better. Spoiler alert: it never does. So instead of putting yourself into a state of self-inflicted pain, try spending your time doing these activities …
