A new disaster looms for British Virgin Islands: how to clean up hurricane mess

Tuesday 13:38 GMT

How the Midway Bar came to be destroyed is not in doubt: a 42ft sailing catamaran hangs 10ft about the former bar-room, still wedged in the ruins more than two months after Hurricane Irma made landfall in the British Virgin Islands (BVI).

When the BVI took the full force of Hurricane Irma on 6 September, it was the most powerful Atlantic hurricane ever recorded, with winds that averaged 185mph, gusting to 215mph.

Breakingviews - Market will trump politics on Keystone pipeline

Tuesday 22:48 GMT

Last month a pipeline project owned by Plains All American, Marathon Petroleum and BP Oil Pipeline, which takes oil from Louisiana to Illinois, said it might reverse course to run south, adding to concerns about a potential glut of capacity.

Nebraska regulators’ green light for the controversial project is a victory for U.S. President Donald Trump, but it doesn’t guarantee the conduit’s construction.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. throws own retirement party on pit road after last race

Tuesday 13:38 GMT

All the video tributes , gifts and heartfelt gratitude Earnhardt received in the months since he announced his retirement seemed to fade as he pulled onto pit road.

One example why he's earned the love : Earnhardt left his party to seek out hunting buddy and best friend, new NASCAR champion Martin Truex Jr. on the stage. The No. 88 on the hood served as a de-facto coaster for his posse as they hugged and laughed and called for more beers in a Sunday night bash that seemed poised to stretch into Monday morning.

Trump puts North Korea back on list of 'state sponsors of terrorism'

Tuesday 22:48 GMT

President Trump put North Korea back on a U.S. list of “state sponsors of terrorism” Monday, a largely symbolic move that administration officials said will increase pressure on Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons arsenal.

North Korea “must end its unlawful nuclear and ballistic missile development and cease all support for international terrorism — which it is not doing,” Trump said at the start of a Cabinet meeting.

Questioning Evolution: The Push to Change Science Class

Tuesday 22:48 GMT

One of the earliest and most successful of these endeavors, the Louisiana Science Education Act of 2008, carried echoes of a “wedge strategy” advocated by the Discovery Institute — a step-by-step program to “reverse the stifling dominance of the materialist worldview and to replace it with a science consonant with Christian and theistic convictions.” The Louisiana law permits public schoolteachers to use materials critical of established scientific thought, with “evolution, the origins of life, global warming and human cloning” singled out as targets.

Morrissey defends Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey, blames victims

Tuesday 13:38 GMT

The British singer Morrissey defended both Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein in an interview this weekend, claiming their alleged victims knew “exactly” what was going on — and chose to “play along.” “Afterward, they feel embarrassed, or they do not like it,” Morrissey said while speaking to the German news outlet Der Spiegel.

Morrissey, however, is apparently in both men’s corner — calling the claims against Spacey “ridiculous” and blasting the countless women who’ve come forward and publicly named Weinstein as their abuser. “People know exactly what’s going on,” Morrissey reportedly said after being asked about the movie producer.
