    A young, gay Republican born in New York City to Brazilian immigrants, congressional candidate George Devolder-Santos has embraced a public image as a “walking, living, breathing contradiction.” But the would-be successor to Rep. Tom Suozzi (D-New York) seems less eager to share another detail of his personal story: for all his rants against “the swamp,” Devolder-Santos served as a director of an investment firm authorities say bilked millions of dollars from its customers. Despite running in a solidly blue district, Devolder-Santos has managed to capture media attention with his atypical political identity and fiery denunciations of socialism, as well as his unabashed cheerleading of ex-President Donald Trump. In January 2021, he lit up LGBTQ outlets and tabloid publications when he claimed his fiancé had lost his job and the couple had to flee their home as a result of the New York Times linking to his Instagram in a story about a maskless New Year’s Eve party at ex-President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. More recently, he’s won attention for first bashing Ukraine—where his grandfather was born—as a “totalitarian regime” to...

    (CNN)An artificial lake off the west coast of Sicily was once one of the largest sacred pools in the ancient Mediterranean 2,500 years ago -- and it was aligned with the stars, according to new research. Previously, researchers thought the rectangular lake was a military harbor that participated in Mediterranean trade. But new excavations and research at the adjacent site of the ancient Phoenician island city of Motya revealed it the lake to be the heart of a circular, sprawling, religious sanctuary.Motya was a bustling port during the first millennium BC. Researchers dated the construction of the pool to 550 BC, when the city was rebuilt after an attack by Carthage, a nearby Phoenician city along the North African coast that was Rome's main rival. Now, Motya is better known as San Pantaleo, an idyllic spot for tourists.Researchers first found the basin in the 1920s and determined it must be an artificial harbor like the one discovered in Carthage, called the Kothon. Researchers drained and excavated the basin at the site of the ancient Phoenician island city of Motya...

    (AP) — The filters distributed in Benton Harbor, Michigan during the city’s recent lead water crisis worked properly, according to a study state officials said was conducted to give residents assurance.

    A tsunami advisory was issued Saturday morning along the West Coast, including parts of the Bay Area, as weather officials told residents to avoid coastal waters. The National Weather Service said there could be up to a couple feet of flooding at beaches at harbor areas in the Bay Area, including in San Francisco and Berkeley, during the morning hours. The announcement prompted the city’s department of emergency to order residents to stay away those areas. “If you are on a beach, harbor or marina dock, or pier, and you cannot self-evacuate, call 911 for evacuation assistance now,” the department said in an alert. “Stay away from San Francisco beaches, harbor and marina docks, and piers until the city issues an official notice that it is safe to return. The Berkeley Fire Department, meanwhile, ordered the mandatory evacuation of residents living at or near the city’s Marina neighborhood due to similar flooding risks. #TsunamiAdvisory remains in effect for the #WestCoast, with peak tsunami wave heights of 1 to 2 feet possible. Main impacts expect to be strong rip currents, coastal...
    A New Jersey economics professor has implored newly sworn-in New York City Mayor Eric Adams to reshape Manhattan - by adding nearly 2,000 acres of artificial land to the borough's southernmost tip.  In an opinion piece published by The New York Times on Friday, Rutgers University's Jason Barr unveiled his grand plan, which would see 1,760 acres of landfill added just below Battery Park, effectively creating a new neighborhood in the City That Never Sleeps, complete with two subway lines, stores, apartments and parks. In the public appeal, Barr christened the prospective area as 'New Mannahatta' - a tribute to the original name given by the Lenape tribe of Native Americans in the centuries before it was colonized. Barr claims that the expansion would help quell dangerous floods spurred by climate change, while serving as a locale that could theoretically house rows of affordable-housing complexes.  The professor asserted that Adams could 'help tackle both issues in one bold policy stroke' by approving the plan. 'If New Mannahatta is built with a density and style similar to the Upper West Side’s, it...

    LANSING, Mich. (AP) — On Monday, Nov. 29, city officials in Benton Harbor announced that the city is accepting bids from contractors to replace all lead water pipes no later than 2023 due to elevated levels of the toxic metal in the city’s water supply. Because the “action level” for lead has been exceeded, for three years, the estimated 2,800 service lines generally must be removed over 14 to 15 years under federal and state regulations. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer promised last month to spend millions of dollars to replace them in 18 months, with work starting next spring.
