Machete-Wielding Woman Threatens to Execute the Kardashians
(WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif.) — A woman screaming about Cuba pointed a gun Thursday at employees inside the Kardashian-owned DASH boutique in West Hollywood and returned hours later waving a machete at reporters, but eluded authorities both times. The woman first walked into the shop during the late morning and shouted, “stay away from Cuba,” Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials said. She knocked several items off a counter before leaving on foot. About two hours later, she returned with a machete and swung it at reporters and photographers who had gathered outside the boutique before sticking it throu...

President Trump, North Korea and a Brief History of Nuclear Threats
During his first presidential speech at the United Nations on Tuesday, President Trump cited the “strength and patience” of his nation before telling the audience that “if [the U.S.] is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.” This is not, as it happens, the first time a nuclear power has openly threatened another state with destruction — but the previous episode does not bode well for President Trump, or for the world. In 1956 only the United States, the USSR and Great Britain had nuclear weapons. It turns out that Russia was quite a w...

Cuba Denies Role in ‘Sonic Attacks’ That Left U.S. Diplomats With Brain Damage
(NEW YORK) — The Cuban government on Tuesday again denied any involvement in or any knowledge of a mysterious series of health incidents that have affected American diplomats in Havana. Cuba also strongly objected to President Donald Trump’s critical comments about the island in his speech to the U.N. General Assembly. At a meeting on law enforcement cooperation in Washington on Tuesday, Cuba’s top diplomat for the Americas, Josefina Vidal, said Cuba has never and would never commit or allow what Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has described as “health attacks” on any foreign diplomat on its ...

When Will Hurricane Maria Hit Puerto Rico?
After getting lashed by Hurricane Irma, the Caribbean is already preparing for the next storm: Hurricane Maria. U.S. territory Puerto Rico, which saw extensive damage after Irma, is right in the middle of the storm’s projected path. But when will Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico? Hurricane Maria is expected to make landfall on the island between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, according to the National Hurricane Center. The entire island is also under a hurricane warning, and Maria is expected to remain “an extremely dangerous category 4 or 5 hurricane” when it reaches Puerto Rico, according to the NH...

Rex Tillerson Says the U.S. Might Shutter Its Embassy in Cuba
(NEW YORK) — The Trump administration is considering closing down the recently reopened U.S. Embassy in Havana following a string of unexplained incidents harming the health of American diplomats in Cuba, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Sunday. Tillerson’s comments were the strongest indication to date that the United States might mount a major diplomatic response, potentially jeopardizing the historic restart of relations between the U.S. and Cuba. The two former foes reopened embassies in Washington and Havana in 2015 after a half-century of estrangement. “We have it under evaluation,” Tille...

Open University should not be closed to Cubans
UNISON has issued a statement criticising the Open University for banning students from Cuba. The famous British educational institution’s ban on Cubans came to light when a Cuban PhD candidate was accepted by lecturers but later rejected by the university’s management. Under US law it is illegal for American companies to trade with Cuba, but British companies are not subject to the same law. The university is under investigation by the Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) as it could be in breach of the Equalities Act 2010 which states that it is unlawful to discriminate on grounds of race or national...

The Caribbean is no stranger to hurricanes, and so when Hurricane Irma struck on Tuesday night plenty on the island of Barbuda hunkered down to see it through. Elessa Harris, 22, said she knew this storm was different when she saw her “roof being lifted up by the winds.” In panic, she fled to a neighbors’ home as winds of up to 185 miles per hour buffeted the eastern Caribbean Island. She emerged on Wednesday to a changed world: Her entire village had been destroyed. “I have witnessed hurricanes before,” she says. “But nothing like this.” The 68-square-mile island, which makes up o...

(TAMPA, Florida) — A massive but weakened Hurricane Irma zeroed in on the Tampa Bay region early Monday after hammering much of Florida with roof-ripping winds, gushing floodwaters and widespread power outages. Irma continued its slog north along Florida’s western coast having blazed a path of unknown destruction. With communication cut to some of the Florida Keys, where Irma made landfall Sunday, and rough conditions persisting across the peninsula, many held their breath for what daylight might reveal. The monster storm measured more than 400 miles (640 kilometers) wide, and its winds of up to 130 mph (210 kp...

Before crashing into Florida, Hurricane Irma set all sorts of records for brute strength as it flattened Caribbean islands and swamped the Florida Keys. Irma’s assault — so soon after Harvey’s deluge of Houston — marked the first time the U.S. was hit by two Category 4 storms in the same year. Irma hit the Sunshine State as a big wide beast, though not quite the monster it once was shaping up to be. Earlier, it was the most powerful recorded storm in the open Atlantic. But as the once-Category 5 storm neared the U.S. mainland, it lost some oomph after running into the northern coast of Cuba. Winds ...
