Updated 2:40 pm, Friday, May 18, 2018 Now Playing: Time lapse images captured the ash plume rising from an early-morning eruption of Hawaii's Kilauea volcano Thursday. The plume rose to more than 30,000 feet and scientists say it's the most powerful eruption in recent days. (May 17) Media: Associated Press PAHOA, Hawaii (AP) — The Latest on the eruption of Kilauea volcano on Hawaii's Big Island (all times local): 11:30 a.m. A volcanologist says there's just no telling when Kilauea's volcanic activity will subside. Janine Krippner of Concord University in West Virginia says much of what is happening is below the earth's surface on Hawaii's Big Island, making it tough for experts to say for certain. Charles Mandeville of the U.S. Geological Survey's volcano hazards program says Kilauea has produced similar eruptions several times in the past 2,000 years. Ash coming out of the volcano's summit can be a nuisance for area residents, though people are unlikely to be … [Read more...] about The Latest: No end in sight for Hawaii’s erupting volcano
Jets CEO and Chairman Christopher Johnson has made it clear that there’s no playoff mandate for Mike Maccagnan and Todd Bowles in 2018, but it sure would be nice to snap a seven-year playoff drought. Will Gang Green return to the postseason for the first time since the 2010 campaign? Here’s our fearless game-by-game predictions in the wake of the NFL schedule release: Week 1 at Lions (Sept. 10, 7 pm, Monday Night Football) The Baker Mayfield Era begins in the Motor City. (Unless it doesn’t). Rookie head coach Matt Patricia leaves The Evil Empire to face a familiar foe in primetime in his debut. Prediction: Loss (0-1) Week 2: vs Dolphins (Sept. 16, 1 pm) Adam Gase’s team was embarrassed last year at MetLife Stadium.

By Dave Dildine | @DildineWTOP April 9, 2018 5:43 pm 04/09/2018 05:43pm Officials in Virginia and across the country will be putting out messages of caution during National Work Zone Awareness Week. OAKTON, Va. — Standing inside a work zone on Stuart Mill Road, Paul Matticks with the Virginia Department of Transportation wants to send drivers a message: slow down. The second week of April is National Work Zone Awareness Week. Officials in Virginia and across the country will be illuminating electronic message signs with caution messages for passers-by. Virginia State Police plans to step up enforcement in several long-term work zones across the state. “A 36- or 48-inch-high plastic cone — I mean, that’s all we’ve got to stand behind, so we need them to see us,” Matticks said, talking over the roar of a Gradall excavator and idling dump trucks. More often than not, the district safety manager said, drivers ignore the … [Read more...] about See the cone, respect the zone: It’s Work Zone Awareness Week
Imagine you had complete control of the U.S. government: What one thing would you do to reduce the country's staggering economic inequality?It's no small task: The 400 richest Americans control more wealth than the poorest 80 million households, and as the richest citizens continue to capture the lion's share of new wealth — the top 5 percent has captured 74 percent of the wealth created in this country since 1982 — the situation is only growing more extreme.But while there's consensus that America is a wildly unequal country, there's broad disagreement on what, if anything, should be done to address that. That's certainly true in Congress, where disagreement and deadlock have consigned meaningful action on inequality to the realm of the hypothetical.That doesn't mean we shouldn't ask what could happen. And in that spirit, we asked experts from across the ideological spectrum what they would do to address inequality if they were king (or queen) for a day.Their … [Read more...] about How 12 experts would end economic inequality if they ran America
