Russia strongly opposes the Western approach to the situation in Syria and its stance has largely been echoed by its partners within the BRICS. Some experts believe that BRICS is the only group that can stand against the West’s hegemonic ambitions.

­“If the BRICS countries have anything to do with it, the Libyan scenario will not be put into practice in Syria,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Sunday after a meeting with his Brazilian counterpart, Antonio Patriota.

10-degree map showing recent earthquakes

PANAMA CITY, Sept 5 (Reuters) – A 5.9 magnitude earthquake struck western Panama near the border of Costa Rica on Monday, about 131 miles (211 km) south of David, Panama, at a depth of 6.2 miles (10 km), the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

The quake was not widely felt in the capital of Panama City and there was no immediate report of damage.

A scientist at the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii said the quake was not strong enough to cause a tsunami. (Reporting by Elida Moreno; editing by Mohammad Zargham) Read more…

Near-Earth Threats, NASA and Elenin – a Civilized Analysis

Recently, there has been quite a bit of talk about a comet or celestial body named Elenin (or C/2010x) that has entered our solar system and will be making a close pass of the Earth soon.  At first, I assumed it was simply the talk of fanciful amateur astronomers and that, at most, it might offer an interesting night-sight for Earth’s inhabitants, much like Haley’s Comet and many others.

But as I continued hearing more and more about this “Elenin object,” I started to realize this was no mere comet.  And perhaps, just maybe, it could have something to do with the famed Planet-X first reported about back in 1983 by the Washington Post.  Unfortunately, it seemed as though most of what I could find was wild speculation and fanatical rantings about the end of the world.  I had discovered only a handful of articles that Read more…

Huge ‘New Zealand swell’ hitting California

NEW ZEALAND SWELL: A beach goer takes photos of surfers and body boarders as a large swell hits California beaches.

Massive waves slamming into California’s coast – killing at least one person and causing millions of dollars in damage – are being labelled the “New Zealand surf” because of where they are coming from.

In a rare event, a big weather system between New Zealand and Antarctica has generated a heavy Pacific wide swell, bringing the waves to California.

Sean Collins, chief forecaster and president of Surfline, told news website Patch.com he warned Californian authorities over the swell.

“Extra caution is urged to keep the public aware and safe from these large waves and associated rip currents.”

He said it was one of the biggest swells to hit with some waves coming ashore at six to seven metres.

Collins said southern hemisphere storms routinely produced waves in California, but this latest one was in the top 10 percent of known waves.

Winds fuel flare-ups in Palo Pinto County, across state

Strong north winds fueled wildfire flare-ups around Possum Kingdom Lake on Sunday and firefighters managed to contain most of them, but the rest of Texas wasn’t as lucky as thousands of acres and hundreds of homes burned in another day of the worst wildfire season in the state’s history.

A wildfire estimated to be 16 miles long near the Austin suburb of Bastrop charred about 14,000 acres Sunday, destroying or damaging an estimated 300 homes.

“It’s catastrophic,” Mark Stanford, fire chief of the Texas Forest Service, said Sunday. “It’s a major natural disaster.”

More than 40 new wildfires were reported to the Texas Forest Service on Sunday as strong winds, low humidity and very dry vegetation left firefighters scrambling to extinguish blazes throughout the state.

“We’re very stretched right now,” Tom Berglund of the Texas Forest Service said Sunday.

As of Sunday afternoon, firefighters Read more…

New green compliant 60-watt LED bulb to cost $15

When the US federal government begins to unlawfully rip away Americans’ freedom to purchase the light bulbs of their choice beginning on January 1, 2012, the only available choices will be poisonous compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs, which are loaded with toxic mercury, or expensive light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs, which a recent CNET article explains will cost roughly $15 a piece for the 60-watt variety — and that is on the inexpensive end of the spectrum.

According to the report, Lighting Science Group and Dixon Technologies India have developed an omnidirectional LED bulb that emits light at the equivalent brightness of a 60 watt incandescent, and that will be priced just below $15. Since 60-watt equivalent LEDs have typically been priced at Read more…
