NEW JERSEY is experiencing a crippling power outage with nearly 300,000 left in the dark which is the equivalent of 7.1 per cent of people in the entire state, it has been reported. A total of 284,484 out of 4million New Jersey customers served by the state’s four major utility companies have been left in the dark. Some families have been in the dark since last Friday. Andrew Danner of Wallingford said: “I’ve tried to be patient. It’s just a ton of uncertainty. “No matter how much I express the urgency and frustration, they’re just like ‘meh, we’re working on it.’ That’s not

Amateurs. Here in Naples, FL, Irma left us without power for 2 weeks in 90+ degree heat and stifling humidity. We made it thru.

I’m sure enduring power loss in the heat is difficult but try doing it when it’s well below freezing outside.

Recent studies report that New Jersey is one of the least patriotic states in America.
So they were already in the dark even before this outage.

The asylum seeker who tried to blow up a packed tube train in west London has been jailed for 34 years. Ahmed Hassan was convicted of attempting to kill 93 commuters when he detonated his homemade bomb at Parsons Green Station on September 15 last year. Mr Justice Haddon-Cave said Hassan was a ´dangerous and devious individual´ who quietly went about plotting his attack with ´ruthless determination and almost military efficiency while pretending to be a model asylum seeker´. The judge said: ´Your intention that morning was to kill as many members of the British public as possible by planting the IED on

After making the rape allegation, the stewardess, said to be a senior female flight attendant, was moved from the usual crew hotel TheJen Tanglin in the city and given a room at a separate hotel. The two crew members involved in the incident were unable to continue with the scheduled flight with the other crew

White House officials said Thursday that President Donald Trump will sign a hotly contested budget bill when lawmakers send it to him, despite the fact that it provides for only 33 miles of new barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump vowed in April 2017 that his long-promised border wall would be finished by the end of his first term in office. ´It´s certainly going to – yeah,´ he told reporters then, answering a specific question about a four-year timeline and adding that ´we have plenty of time.´ But at the rate the White House has agreed to, the project could stretch through more

Hillary Clinton continues to attack President Trump while abroad, this time during an interview with a Dutch news network. During the interview, which took place on March 13, Clinton alleged that Trump is undermining the presidency in exchange for personal and familial gain. “He has undermined the office and used it to enrich himself and his family,” Clinton said. “Disregarded laws, ethical standards.” “He’s crossed into a territory of behavior and actions that are unpredictable, that are erratic, that are undermining the stability of the global order,” she continued. Clinton came under fire last week during a trip to India when she

Science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson is one of the best-known names in a genre known for looking forward. However, not all writers in the genre look to the future for their ideas -- plenty are obsessed with moving backwards, from liberty back to tyranny. Robinson recently penned an op-ed in The Guardian that favors removing humans from most of the world, forcefully herding us all into cities. "The tendency of people to move to cities, either out of desire or perceived necessity, creates a great opportunity. If we managed urbanisation properly, we could nearly remove ourselves from a considerable percentage of

President Donald Trump yanked the government back to the brink of a shutdown on Friday morning with a tweet threatening “a VETO” of a $1.3 trillion spending bill that Congress had cleared just hours earlier. Trump’s declaration of a possible veto — citing the spending bill’s lack of full funding for his border wall and attention to undocumented immigrants known as Dreamers — comes as many lawmakers who would have to override his rejection or pass a stopgap funding measure are already on the way out of Washington for a two-week recess. The president’s top aides said Thursday he would

Actors and athletes increasingly using their forums for political activism are turning off viewers, according to a newly released poll. A McLaughlin & Associates/Media Research Center survey released Wednesday found that 44 percent were less likely to watch sports and entertainment shows “because they have become too political.” In addition, 75 percent said they watch sports and entertainment to escape from politics, and “do not want to be bombarded with partisan political messages.” The poll of 1,000 likely voters comes with television ratings plummeting in the last year for high-profile sports and entertainment

David Hogg has become the face of the Parkland high school shooting, eclipsing the tragic memories of the 17 victims who were murdered by Nicolas Cruz. Hogg has been rabidly elevated as a media celebrity by the mainstream press, who found a willing mouthpiece to push their anti-Second Amendment agenda. In a profanity-laced, rambling interview with The Outline, Hogg slammed the NRA and pro-Second Amendment politicians, calling them “sick f**kers.” (Video warning: language) The Outline hosts treated Hogg as if her were a Constitutional scholar and gun expert rolled into one. His answers proved, once again, he is neither. “It just makes
