I first heard about the rescue of Pisces III about fifteen years ago from a ship’s captain while on a cruise around the Aeolian Islands, off the coast of Sicily. I filed it away and two years ago decided to dust the idea down and explore if it would work as, what I imagined, could be a ‘non-fiction thriller.’ What appealed to me was not only the plight of the men at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean but this international ‘Brotherhood of the Sea’—teams from Britain, Canada and America—who all came together to work on the rescue mission.
The pilot was forced to spend about two hours flying over the desert and the sea to dump around 80 tons of kerosene to enable the aircraft to land safely, prompting questions about the environmental damage caused by the Green minister’s trip.
Today, Judge Andrew Macrae reported that he and other judges on the Hong Kong Court of Appeal unanimously overruled the convictions against Hong Kong pro-democracy activists Jimmy Lai, Martin Lee, Margaret Ng, Lee Cheuk-yan, Leung Kwok-hung, Cyd Ho and Albert Ho for organising an unauthorised assembly in 2019. Their convictions for participating in an unauthorised assembly were upheld.
Take time to listen to President Eisenhower’s 15-minute-long farewell address.
Here are 4 clips of what he warned us about that have all come true. Amazingly prescient.

The origin of this disaster is now becoming clear: massive amounts of dry, dead fuel (mainly grass), strong downslope winds produced by strong trades interacting with local mountains, and human ignition, most probably from powerlines.

Stanley McChrystal probably should have left this bit out of his memoir.
Yes, all the big Al Qaeda attacks of the 1990s were directed by a Special Forces sergeant based at Fort Bragg who was also a CIA and FBI asset. But that was a long time ago. Better to not mention it. pic.twitter.com/TtzyT3Np9e

Only two weeks prior to the Simmons hire, CNN announced that former Biden White House communications director Kate Bedingfeld had been hired as an on-air commentator and contributor.

It’s funny how the only people who even try to defend first the Australian and now Canadian news link laws really don’t understand the issues.
They always start by saying it’s “paying to publish news” and when you point out that’s untrue they go straight to insults and deflection
