A team of scientists, who have been studying these types of craters for years, say it could be the result of a huge explosion that was caused by the build of methane underneath the ground.

The editor-in-chief of the Atlantic — who published a bombshell report Thursday night detailing disparaging remarks that President Trump allegedly made about dead American soldiers during a 2018 trip to France — said Friday that his sources refused to go on the record despite his best efforts because they were concerned about being publicly derided by the president. Goldberg continued. Goldberg's story quotes “four people with firsthand knowledge of the discussion,” who report that the real reason President Trump refused to visit the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018 was because he did not want to get his hair wet and felt it wasn't important to honor those buried there, saying the cemetery was “filled with losers.”

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials described the proposal as giving more deference to local governments when they want to build things like schools and hospitals. But the proposal indicates that exemptions from habitat protections would be considered for a much broader array of developments, including at the request of private companies that lease federal lands or have permits to use them.

Interviews with logistics experts, immunization professionals and pharmaceutical distribution specialists, together with recent U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention planning documents, give a clearer picture of how coronavirus vaccines will get from manufacturers into the arms of millions of Americans. The swift and so far positive effort to create vaccines to fight COVID-19 has been remarkable but it's only half of the work, said Tinglong Dai, a professor of operations management who studies health care analytics at the Johns Hopkins University. The process will be run by the CDC, which for decades has overseen vaccine distribution in the United States and ran the last national vaccination effort during the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic.
