Volcano eruption in Indonesia kills 3, forces 100,000 to be evacuated

A powerful volcanic eruption on Indonesia’s most populous island blasted ash and debris 18 kilometers (12 miles) into the air Friday, killing three people and forcing authorities to evacuate more than 100,000 and close seven airports. The eruption of Mount Kelud on Java island could be heard up to 200 kilometers (125 miles) away, Indonesia’s disaster agency said. “The eruption sounded like thousands of bombs exploding,” Ratno Pramono, a 35-year-old farmer, said as he checked his property in the village of Sugihwaras, about 5 kilometers (3 miles) from the crater. “I thought doomsday was upon us. Women and children were screaming and crying.” Ash and grit fell to earth in towns and cities across the region, including Surabaya, Indonesia’s second-largest city after Jakarta, with a population of about 3 million. It also fell farther afield in Yogyakarta, where motorists switched on headlights in daylight. Workers attempted to cover the famed ninth century Buddhist temple complex of Borobudur with plastic sheeting to protect it. More...

Residents Baffled by Terrifying Loud Booms in Oklahoma

If you hear a bang in the night in Oklahoma, it’s probably not a monster, but could something worse — an earthquake. Across the south central state, 20 earthquakes were reported to The United States Geological Survey on Saturday alone. One of those quakes in the Edmond area had a magnitude of 3.5. But residents are puzzled as to why the quakes are occurring so frequently and making such alarmingly loud noises. “Felt like bombs going off. It’s just a huge loud noise and then it’s like a reverb from that boom that just shakes the entire house,” Logan County resident Nancy York told ABC News affiliate KOCO-TVin Oklahoma City. “If I’m experiencing eight of these in one day, then when does it erupt and become absolutely horrible that takes my house down?” York asked. Similar booms have been heard across other states including Indiana, South Carolina, Ohio and Rhode Island in the last month. All of these regions are active areas on the USGS seismic hazard map. Seismologist Austin Holland with the Oklahoma Geological Survey said that the unexplained noises are a result of sound waves emitting deep from within the earth before erupting. Residents might not know it’s an earthquake because the shaking may be too slight to detect. “When you’re on top of a small earthquake it generates a boom. It’s kind of similar to an explosion,” Holland said. “I know these booms have...

Episcopal Bishops Rebuke Kansas Anti-Gay House Bill 2453 With Religious Righteousness

DAYS OF LOT – On Wednesday, Kansas’ Republican-dominated House passed Bill 2453, which makes it legal for individuals, groups, and businesses to refuse services for same-sex couples if they believe it goes against their religious beliefs to do so. Though the bill claims that it “protects the rights of religious people,” some people of faith are against it, explaining that legalizing discrimination doesn’t protect religious freedom at all. Two bishops of the Episcopal Church, the Right Reverend Dean E. Wolfe and the Right Reverend Michael P. Milliken, urged the rejection of Bill 2453 in a joint statement sent to all members of the Kansas Senate:...

Michael Sam Received A Standing Ovation At A Missouri Basketball Game For “Coming Out of the Closet”

DAYS OF LOT -Michael Sam received a standing ovation when he appeared on the arena video boards during Missouri’s basketball game against Tennessee on Saturday. The All-America defensive end who could became the first openly gay player in the NFL, later blew a kiss to the student section and shook hands with fans. Sam and football team were honored at halftime for their Cotton Bowl over Oklahoma State. Wearing a shirt declaring “We Are All CoMo Sexuals,” 51-year-old Michelle Carmichael joined more than a thousand others in forming a line of support for Sam. She didn’t hesitate to answer why. “Because Michael Sam stood up for Mizzou his entire career and we need to stand up for him,” she said. The shirt plays off the nickname of Columbia, Mo., where Sam announced to his teammates in August that he was gay. The NFL hopeful shared his sexuality with the world last Sunday. A Facebook event created this week called for the community to stand together for Sam outside Mizzou Arena on Saturday. Nearly 5,000 people said they would attend, though not as many turned out in the 30-degree chill....
