Intensifying Typhoon Phanfone Heads For Japan
Typhoon Phanfone is gathering strength in the western Pacific Ocean, with projections showing that it may intensify significantly, likely to super typhoon status before veering toward mainland Japan by October 5. Computer-model simulations on Wednesday show that the storm will likely intensify over the next few days, while moving northwest, toward extreme southwest Japan or the open East China Sea. Japan has already been affected by three tropical cyclones this season, including Typhoon Halong, Tropical Storm Nakri and Typhoon Neguri. Southwest Japan has experienced widespread flooding from the combination of these storms and other weather systems.

WiLan Says Loses LTE Patent Case Against Apple
Canadian patent licensing company WiLan Inc on Wednesday said a U.S. judge had ruled in favor of Apple in a litigation case against it. WiLan said it is currently reviewing the ruling from the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California with its trial counsel, and said it has a separate case against Apple in the same court for five other LTE patent infringement claims. WiLan, whose primary business is acquiring ownership of intellectual property and then seeking to charge fees to companies that make use of it, plunged late last year after a jury ruled that Apple had not infringed one of its patents in another case.

Myth Debunked: Arctic Walrus Beachings Are Nothing New
Environmentalists have been trying to link reports about the beaching of a 35,000-strong walrus herd to global warming, which they say is melting the polar ice caps. Margaret Williams, head of the World Wildlife Fund’s Arctic program, says "The massive concentration of walruses onshore,when they should be scattered broadly in ice-covered waters—is just one example of the impacts of climate change on the distribution of marine species in the Arctic." But is global warming really driving walrus herds to Alaska’s shoreline? Zoologist Susan Crockford says there are many recorded mass walrus beachings in history going back at least 45 years, when Arctic sea ice extent was much greater than it is now.

Obama Admin To Recognize Indian Tribe That Bans Interracial Marriage With African Americans
Black lawmakers are furious that the Obama administration is in the process of acknowledging a Native American tribe that still has laws prohibiting its members from marrying African Americans.

Think Tank: Vouchers Have Saved Taxpayers $1.7 Billion
A new report from a school choice group argues, the various school voucher programs created around the United States since 1990 have saved taxpayers over $1.7 billion since their inception. With 505,000 vouchers dispersed in that time frame, the total averages out to about $3,400 per voucher student, per year. The report was released Tuesday by the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice, an education reform organization founded by Nobel-winning economist Milton Friedman which primarily advocates for the creation of school voucher programs. It looked at ten different voucher programs that were created in six states and the District of Columbia from 1990 through 2010. Twelve additional voucher programs created since 2010 were not a part of the research.

2014 Ushers In New Decade Of Al Franken As Pro-War Politician Of Fortune
Before he was an inconsequential U.S. senator representing Minnesota, Democrat Al Franken was an unfunny comedian with bit parts on “Saturday Night Live.” One of his shticks was to proclaim the 1980s as the “Al Franken Decade.” While that gambit utterly failed to pan out, Franken later reinvented himself, somehow, as a political activist. He supported the Iraq war at its inception in 2003. Then, when the war didn’t go well, he fiercely criticized it. Two weeks ago, Franken, who in August 2008 demanded that Congress rescind $7.1 billion committed to the reconstruction of Iraq, voted yes on a Senate resolution to arm various Syrian rebel groups.

Sen. Mark Udall Silent On What People Should Pay For CO2 Emissions
Four years ago, Sen. Mark Udall — now locked in a tough re-election fight — said it’s “crucial” to price carbon dioxide emissions in order to fight global warming. Udall’s official Senate website says the Colorado Democrat is still in favor of pricing carbon dioxide. The question is, how much does Udall think Americans should pay to emit carbon dioxide? More importantly, what does that mean for everyday purchases, like filling up your gas tank or keeping the lights on? Udall’s office did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s inquiries. But his support for the Environmental Protection Agency’s “Clean Power Plan” and his wife’s climate advocacy give an idea of what his carbon price might look like.
