Tommy Robinson’s appeal was held in the Royal Courts of Justice in London Today
On what would have been Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday, Tommy Robinson’s appeal was held in the Royal Courts of Justice in London, today, heard by a panel of three judges, presided over by the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales. The significance of the date should not be overlooked. “Nelson Mandela served 28 years in prison for terrorist offenses, he was actually conspiring to murder people yet he is now regarded as an international hero”. (Gerard Batten speaking at the #FreeTommy march on Whitehall on 14 July) Like Tommy, he was a convicted criminal, however, “history has judged that he was on the right side of a great cause”. Today, in a courtroom filled at what is estimated to be 90 percent with Tommy’s supporters, Tommy himself, was not present, rather he appeared on a video link from prison. We followed Ezra Levant, whom Tommy specifically requested to cover the hearing. His barrister was Jeremy …

Activity at Kilauea unprecedented in the past 200 years!
The current eruption at Kilauea is unprecedented in scope and size in the past 200 years, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory deputy scientist-in-charge Steve Brantley said Tuesday, July 16, 2018. "What we are observing now is unprecedented in the past 200 years in terms of size and scale, but not in terms of process," Brantley said. "This has occurred before, particularly during the 19thcentury when there were multiple collapses of the summit area and eruptions down in the East Rift Zone. At least one large in 1840." "This is also the largest sequence of collapse events that we've observed in the past 200 years," he said. In the middle East Rift Zone, Puʻu ʻŌʻō erupted for 35 years. That was the longest eruption in the whole East Rift Zone in over 500 years and it probably set up the conditions that were ripe for lava or magma to be able to travel underground all the way fr…
Study: How Sun influences lightning and thunder activity on Earth
Japanese researchers have taken the first steps to understand how the Sun's rotational cycle influences lightning activity on Earth. The answers were found in diaries dating back to the 1700s. "It is well known that long-term - centennial to millennial-scale - variations of solar activity influences terrestrial climate," said Hiroko Miyahara, first author on the paper published recently in EGU's Annales Geophysicae. "However, it is not well established whether the Sun influences the daily or monthly weather." Miyahara referred to the 27-day solar rotational period, which is the average time it takes for the Sun to rotate on its axis. Since the Sun consists of plasma, the equator rotates quicker than its poles. When areas of high activity, such as sunspots, face Earth, there's an increase in ultraviolet rays and decrease in energetic particles showering the atmosphere. "Thunderstorm and …
Long-lasting fireball recorded over the Mediterranean Sea
A bright fireball was recorded streaking across the night sky over the Mediterranean Sea at 02:20 UTC on July 17, 2018. The event lasted up to 12 seconds and was recorded by several SMART Project cameras. According to the preliminary analysis by the SMART Project's Principal Investigator, Professor Jose Maria Madiedo of the University of Huelva, Spain, this fireball was produced by a rock with asteroidal origin entering our atmosphere at a speed of about 54 000 km/h (33 554 mph).

It started at about 91 km (56 miles) above sea level, moved southeastward and ended in front of the Cabo de Gata at an altitude of about 31 km (19 miles).
Severe heatwave engulfs Japan after historic rainfall claims over 220 lives
Severe heatwave is affecting Japan just several days after historic rainfall and one of the worst flooding disasters in country's history left more than 220 people dead. The current heatwave is the result of the layering of two high-pressure systems over much of Japan and is expected to continue for the rest of the week, if not longer, the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) said. According to the latest reports, at least 15 people died after temperatures in parts of Japan soared up to 40 °C (104 °F) over the past few days. In addition, more than 10 000 people were taken to hospitals for heat exhaustion or heatstroke by July 18, 2018. A total of 9 956 people were taken to hospitals by July 14, which is 3.7 times higher than that of the previous week. More than 5 000 of them during this past weekend alone, with Osaka counting the largest number of people in hospitals. Temperatures on July 15 reached 35 °C (95…
Jupiter’s Moon Count Reaches 79, Including Tiny ‘Oddball’
NEW YORK (AP) – It’s getting more crowded around Jupiter. A team of astronomers is reporting the discovery of a dozen new moons circling the giant gas planet. That brings the number of moons at Jupiter to 79, the most of any planet. Saturn is next with 61. The astronomers were looking for objects on the fringes of the solar system when they spotted the Jupiter moons. They found a dozen small moons. The confirmation of 10 was announced Tuesday; two were confirmed earlier. They’re calling one moon an ‘oddball’ because of its unusual orbit. The scientists say the moons weren’t seen before because they are tiny – the biggest ones only about two miles across. Telescopes in Chile, Hawaii, and Arizona were used for the discovery and confirmation. Twelve new moons orbiting Jupiter have been found—11 "normal" outer moons, and one that they're calling an "oddball." This brings Jupiter's total number of known moons …

Kīlauea Volcano Lower East Rift Zone

Fissure 8 continues to erupt lava into the perched channel leading northeastward from the vent. Surging was noted at the Fissure 8 cone during the overflight but had stopped by the time ground crews arrived to verify it. Lava in the channel is a bit lower this morning and there were no significant overflows. The southern margin of the flow was located about 750 m (0.5 mi) from the boat ramp at Isaac Hale Park this morning. Despite no visible surface connection to the fissure 8 channel, lava continues to ooze out at several points on the 6 km (3.7 mi) wide…
