SAN FRANCISCO -- Pacific Gas and Electric says it could take as long as five days to turn the power back on for nearly 800,000 customers across California. It's part of preemptive power shutdown due to fire danger, impacting the Bay Area and surrounding counties. The utility says re-energizing power lines takes time. Crews will need to inspect every power line by land and air before restoring power. "We hope to be able to restore power within 24 to 48 hours, however we are taking about a large swath of our service territory. We have helicopters, ground crews that will be

Once again the rate payers and citizens of CA will take it in the shorts because PG&E failed to maintain the electrical system they built. Typical globalist totalitarians; if we're going to be held responsible for our actions, then everyone else will also feel pain. I remember when I was in school (way back in the last century) and one of the hallmarks of a third world, communist hellhole was unreliable electricity. Welcome to California! I'm of a mind that this whole overblown fiasco is intended to be a "training opportunity" for the serfs, er public.

It’s just crazy here! A great job is being done in alarming people - not so good in getting actual specific info out. Oh, and then PG&E delays some planned outages, plus announces more areas may be affected. All for a “wind event” that hasn’t occurred. So poorly done!

How in hell ! does this not redound on the liberal dems who have created this. Toss 'em out, for God's sakes. An occasional 1/2 day without out power is bad enough, perhaps manageable as ridiculous and unnecessary as it is, but days and days ? Peeps won't put up with this. If they do accept it, they deserve it.

But first, he wanted to address the biggest news from Washington: The House impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump.

Pope Francis urged South American bishops gathered at the Vatican on Monday to "speak with courage" as they address a severe priest shortage in remote areas of the region that could result in the church dropping celibacy requirements for some priests. The three-week Synod of Bishops for the Amazon also will address crucial regional topics ranging from protection of rainforests and local cultures to climate change, migration and clean water. "We have not come here to invent programs of social development or custody of cultures," the pope said. "We come to contemplate, to understand, to serve the peoples." Cardinal Claudio

But to others, especially children of immigrants who may already feel pushed to the margins of the American mainstream, the supermarket can be just another place to experience the sting of their outsider status. The sting occurs whenever they walk down the “ethnic” food aisle, the section of the supermarket that, to some, plays out like a remnant of the Jim Crow era, when laws established separate facilities for African Americans in the post-Reconstruction South.

KYIV (Ukraine) – Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden received $900,000 for lobbying activities from Burisma Group, Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada member Andriy Derkach said citing investigation materials. Derkach publicized documents which, as he said, "describe the mechanism of getting money by Biden Sr." at a press conference at Interfax-Ukraine's press center in Kyiv on Wednesday. "This was the transfer of Burisma Group's funds for lobbying activities, as investigators believe, personally to Joe Biden through a lobbying company. Funds in the amount of $900,000 were transferred to the U.S.-based company Rosemont Seneca Partners, which according to open sources, in particular, the New York Times, is affiliated with Biden.

Washington - Each state in America has an official state bird, usually an iconic species that helps define the landscape. Minnesota chose the common loon, whose haunting wails echo across the state’s northern lakes each summer. Georgia picked the brown thrasher, a fiercely territorial bird with a repertoire of more than 1,000 song types. But as the planet warms and birds across the country relocate to escape the heat, at least eight states could see their state birds largely or entirely disappear from within their borders during the summer, according to a new study.

LGBT activists yelled, “trans women are women” and had several speakers lecture on gender diversity. On the other side, the conservative group Concerned Women of America pressed that changing the meaning of “sex” in the Civil Rights Act “would greatly undermine the women's movement.” They held signs that read, "Sex is not Gender."

With its spouting geysers, majestic mountains, awe-inspiring waterfalls, and panoramic views, Yellowstone National Park has the undeniable power to uplift. But it also has an unparalleled potential to destroy. Concealed beneath the park rests the Yellowstone Caldera, the largest supervolcano in North America. Each year, millions of visitors trek over a massive magma chamber that, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), stretches from 5 km to 17 km beneath the surface and is about 90 km long and about 40 km wide. A little deeper rests another chamber that's 4.5 times larger. The Yellowstone supervolcano has unleashed three cataclysmic eruptions in the past 2.1 million years;

In the latest edition of La Repubblica, Pope Francis' longtime atheist friend and interviewer, Eugenio Scalfari, claims that the Pope told him that once Jesus Christ became incarnate, he was a man, a "man of exceptional virtues" but "not at all a God." The teaching of the Catholic Church and most Christian churches is that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was incarnated as fully man and fully God. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church states, "The unique and altogether singular event of the Incarnation of the Son of God does not mean that Jesus Christ is part God and part man, nor does it imply that he is the result
