This is about 8 minutes of some great footage & human interest on The Big Island - Hawaii's Kilauea volcano.




This is actually a very localized event. On the Kona side of the island, all is pretty much business as usual.
I found this article to be very informative.

If anyone's interested, the following video is a bit long but I found it extremely informative.
Scientist Johanna Wagstaffe took real time questions on Hawaii's Mount Kilauea eruptions.

India is facing, again, another wave of violent rapes. This week, three teenager grils were raped and burned alive when they threatened to report those crimes to the family of the perpetrator or the authorities. About 40 000 rapes are declared each year in the country, but its estimated that those numbers are but a tiny fraction of the real one as rape victims suffer from vengeful killings, social isolation and shame at a staggering rate.

The illiberal tandem vs Europe

Poland and Hungary tend to be paired up when discussing the political crisis of the European Union (EU). The reason is the emergence of so-called “illiberal democracies” in these eastern member states, which do not comply with some of the founding values of the EU. Viktor Orbán seized power in Hungary in 2010, and he’s just won the elections for the third term. In Poland, the Law and Justice party (PiS) has taken over after winning parliamentary elections in late 2015. Shortly after, in the Krynica Forum in October 2016 both party leaders, Jarosław Kaczyński and Viktor Orbán, announced they would stand together for “cultural counter-revolution” and renewal of the post-Brexit EU. So, how long will it last? [...]

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.
