Oceans Turning Bluer, Indicative of Greater Sense of Godly Revelation
Scientists predict the oceans will grow warmer and turn a deeper blue, which rabbis say more closely resembles the Throne of Glory. According to the research, more than 50 percent of the world’s oceans will shift in color. Open-ocean regions are more barren and have fewer of the phytoplankton and currently appear blue. The researchers predicted that in the future, these regions will become bluer. Colder regions of the ocean, generally those near the poles, currently appear green but will, in the future appear even more vibrantly green.
Is Encouraged Euthanasia the Future of Socialized Medicine?
As the political discussion concerning the future of American healthcare grows more intense, the implicit issue of euthanasia stands in the wings. One rabbi noted that the issues of abortion and euthanasia are two sides of the same coin, both destroying the relationship between parent and child. “The danger of socialized medicine is that everything is under someone else’s control, not necessarily the patient or their family,” the physician, who prefers to remain anonymous, told Breaking Israel News.“The chief motivation is economic and not health. Euthanasia fits into that mindset.”

Earth’s north magnetic pole sprints toward Siberia
According to NOAA, the WMM was scheduled to be updated at the end of 2019 and released as WMM2020, but the magnetic pole has shifted so far in the direction of Siberia so quickly that it reached a speed of over 34 mi (55 km) per year. Therefore, an unusual early update was required to ensure safe navigation – especially in the polar regions where magnetic compasses become unreliable.
Implant brings increased dexterity and sense of touch to hand prosthesis
A collaboration working under the EU-funded DeTOP project has developed a new hand prosthesis that reads signals direct from nerves and muscles via electrodes implanted in the patient’s arm. As well as making more refined hand movements possible, the technique is reported to provide sensory feedback to the patient from the prosthesis itself, in the form of tactile sensations, which should help the user determine how much force to apply when grasping an object – something that’s not easy to do when relying on visual cues only.
Gantz: Israel should not control Palestinians, praises disengagement model
Israel Resilience Party chairman and former IDF chief of staff Benny Gantz said Israel must find a solution to the settlement crisis. “We are not looking to control anyone else,” Gantz said in his first interview since announcing his candidacy for prime minister. Speaking with the Hebrew daily Yediot Aharonot in an article published Wednesday, Gantz said, “We must find a way that does not require us to exercise control over other people.”
Brexit risk for UK aid as Swiss cut off from EU funding
Some of the UK’s major aid agencies may be facing a funding shortfall once Britain leaves the European Union. Many had hoped that funding might continue after Brexit, especially if a deal is agreed.

Egypt MPs to vote on extending presidential term limits
An Egyptian parliamentary committee has given initial approval to a proposal to amend the constitution in a way that would extend President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi’s time in office, state media say. Mr Sisi is due to stand down in 2022, when his second four-year term ends. But a proposal from the majority bloc in parliament would lengthen future presidential terms to six years and let Mr Sisi stand for another two terms.
Valley Fever cases in California continue to increase

Putin taunts Trump: 400 Russian military contractors sent to Venezuela in support of Maduro
Russia is playing a high-stakes game in the mounting crisis in Venezuela, where socialist President Nicolas Maduro has been mortgaging part of the country’s oil resources in exchange for financial and military support from Moscow. Latin America is far from Russia, and Venezuela is impoverished, surrounded by hostile neighbors and squarely in the crosshairs of the Trump administration.

Congress’s Vote To Keep War In Afghanistan Sells Out American Soldiers
