We need to be prepared for the inevitable, that a quarter of the country will soon fall inside the extreme heat belt with temperatures exceeding 125°F and the results will be dire.
Sean Hannity, an old friend of Donald Trump's who accordingly has his back as much or moreso than anyone on Fox News or anywhere else, posed a premise Monday that could set the table for a constitutional crisis should Trump be convicted of a felony and run for the presidency in 2024 anyway.

Sending children back to school in the fall can be an emotional rollercoaster for most parents — especially after a string of school shootings in the last year that has made the yearly tradition feel downright overwhelming. “My daughter was in kindergarten last year and she knew that her place in 'lockdown drills' was by the toilet in the classroom bathroom, and that she had to wait till the administrators banged on the doors, and that she had to be quiet," Cassie Arnold, an arts educator and mom of three living in Texas, tells Yahoo Life, lamenting the fact that school shootings have become normalized. Arnold — in order to jumpstart important conversations about school gun violence, and to coincide with the return to school — decided to use her skills as an artist to create School Uniform (Bulletproof Dress), an outfit worn by her middle child in a photo for social media.

Coutte says the advantages of sorghum are that in much of France it does not need to be irrigated, requires no pesticides and needs only a third of the fertilizer that wheat requires. It's not a miracle solution but it is a solution which, among many others, makes it possible to improve things, to consume less plant-protection products, to consume less fertilizer and above all preserve groundwater and water resources. But sorghum isn't totally immune to drought.
Several videos released along with the study illustrate how an earthquake-triggered tsunami would most likely cause water to inundate the coastal areas around Seattle. From land, a tsunami functions and looks more like a storm surge from a hurricane than a tidal wave. That's been something that these videos, I hope, help kind of pull the curtain back on and help educate not only the public, but also the emergency managers and anyone who's interested in tsunamis to understand how they behave geographically over time,” Daniel Eungard, a geologist with the Washington Geological Survey who helped conduct the study, told Yahoo News.

I'm talking to a father and his son about how Donald Trump is in charge of the military right now. And these fringe ideas are being codified by a guy like Donald Trump and a bunch of cowards who don't have the guts to stand up to him. He speaks to Americans and then he sends them away from sources that could maybe give them a broader perspective and just into the cesspool of the internet … It's melting [their] brains.

A defense mental health expert in the penalty trial of Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz can pinpoint when he realized the 23-year-old mass murderer still has “irrational thoughts” — the two were making small talk when Cruz began describing plans for an eventual life outside prison. Wesley Center, a Texas counselor, said that happened last year at the Broward County jail as he fitted Cruz's scalp with probes for a scan to map his brain. The defense at hearings this week will try to convince Circuit Judge Elizabeth Scherer that Center and other experts should be allowed to testify at Cruz's ongoing trial about what their tests showed, something the prosecution wants barred.

Nearly six months into a war in Ukraine that Russia can't seem to decisively win, Russian President Vladimir Putin is bragging this week that Russia's weapons are decades ahead of competitors. “Many of them are years, maybe decades ahead of their foreign counterparts, and in terms of tactical and technical characteristics they are significantly superior,” Putin said at an annual arms show Monday, according to Interfax. “Russia sincerely cherishes historically strong friendly, truly trusting ties with the states of Latin America, Asia, Africa, and is ready to offer its partners and allies the most modern types of weapons—from small arms to armored vehicles and artillery, combat aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles,” Putin said.

“Like it or not, inside American politics, you’re on one side or the other. There is no in between.”
“Were a centrist coalition to arise in service of ‘bipartisan’ policy objectives, it would shift the political center of gravity.”
“Purported constituents for a centrist third party aren’t as large a group as is often imagined and aren’t really centrists, either.”
“A successful third party is one that integrates itself or its program into one of the two major parties.”
“Favoritism for party candidates is a tough mountain to climb … Americans prefer to vote for a candidate they believe can win.”
