Faith Leaders Say They’re Being Targeted For Leaving Water To Help Migrants

Faith leaders targeted for bringing water to migrants

A group of about 60 faith leaders and border activists hiked deep into a wildlife refuge in southwestern Arizona on Sunday, dropping plastic containers of water in the desert to save the lives of migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

The activists trekked in over 100-degree heat through the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge and delivered a total of 125 gallons of water, according to No More Deaths, a Unitarian Universalist ministry that provides water and first aid to migrants.

Thousands of people have died in Arizona’s deserts while illegally crossing the border, The Associated Press reports. No More Deaths says at least 128 bodies were recovered just last year, including 57 in the desert near Ajo, where clergy focused their action on Sunday.


Trump says Don Jr. wanted dirt on Clinton from Russian lawyer

Donald Trump, Jr.Donald Trump acknowledged Sunday that his oldest son was trying to dig up dirt on Hillary Clinton when he met a woman linked to the Kremlin in 2016 — an attempt to recast the Trump Tower meeting as an innocuous part of campaigning as the president gets energized about hitting the trail again this year.

His comments, delivered by tweet, directly contradicted a July 2017 statement in which Trump’s team claimed the purpose of Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting a year earlier was to discuss adoption policy regarding Russian children.

Hothouse Earth: Runaway global warming threatens 'habitability of the planet for humans'

Global warming set to make Earth uninhabitable for humans

Runaway global warming on our planet remains a distinct possibility in the decades and centuries ahead, scientists reported Monday in a new study, warning that a "hothouse Earth" threatens the very “habitability of the planet for human beings.”

Such a hothouse Earth climate would see global average temperatures some 6 to 8 degrees Fahrenheit higher than they are now, with sea levels 30 to 200 feet higher than today, the paper said.

In addition, even if the carbon emission reductions called for in the Paris Agreement are met – meaning a rise of no more than 3.6 degrees above preindustrial levels – that still may not be enough.

Mysterious radio signal from space? Astronomers aren’t sure of origins

Radio signal heard from outer space

A mysterious radio signal has been spotted by a telescope in Canada, and it's one of the lowest in frequency to date.

Details of the signal were posted to The Astronomer's Telegram, a website where accredited astronomers can post observations.

An observation posted last week by Patrick Boyle from Canada's McGill University finds a radio telescope called the Canadian Hydrogen Mapping Intensity Experiment (CHIME) discovered a fast radio burst, which are short bursts of radio waves coming from beyond the Milky Way Galaxy.

The FRB was detected at frequencies as low as 580 megahertz, the lowest frequency detection to date.
