Hopes are fading for hundreds of people still missing after a dam collapse at an iron ore mine in Brazil, after officials suspended the search for survivors amid fears a nearby dam was at risk of breaking as well. Rescue teams had been searching for survivors at the facility near the city of Brumadinho in Minas Gerais state following the collapse of a dam holding back mine waste, sending out waves of mud for several miles. Throughout Saturday, scores of families awaited word on their loved ones as Romeu Zema, governor of Minas Gerais, admitted that most recovery efforts would entail pulling out bodies.
Both the ACT and the SAT are accepted by college admissions committees, and both are extremely popular among college applicants. To accurately interpret test results and make well-reasoned decisions thereafter — as well as set appropriate target scores at the onset of their test prep — ACT test-takers must know how to read and understand their ACT score report ( see sample here). Your composite score is another word for your total score, and it is calculated by averaging and rounding your four section scores.
The U.S. has agreed to the outlines of a peace deal with the Taliban that includes the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan in exchange for a guarantee that terrorist groups will not be permitted to take route in the vacated region, the New York Times reported Monday. “We have a draft of the framework that has to be fleshed out before it becomes an agreement,” America’s chief negotiator, Zalmay Khalilzad, told the New York Times during an interview in Kabul.

A rare and powerful tornado that struck Havana killed three people and left 172 injured, Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel said early on Monday. Mr Diaz-Canel, who toured the darkened streets of Havana in the pre-dawn hours visiting emergency crews, wrote on Twitter that damage to the Cuban capital from the late Sunday tornado was “severe”. The tornado overturned vehicles, uprooted trees, knocked down lampposts, and left part of the city in the dark. In the city’s Luyano neighbourhood storm debris – including parts of a balcony ripped off an old building – blocked the streets, AFP photographers reported. As emergency sirens blared across the city, firefighters and ambulances rushed about on rescue missions, their flashing lights giving light to blacked out areas. Officials said the damage was severe Credit: Adalberto Roque/AFP “As of now we mourn the loss of three human lives and 172 injured people are receiving aid”, Mr Diaz-Canel tweeted. He added that several emergency teams were working hard to restore power to blacked-out areas. At the Hijas de Galicia maternity hospital staff were forced to evacuate the building due to storm damage. The tornado, spawned by a powerful storm that originated in the Gulf of Mexico, hit western Cuba with winds of up to 100 kilometres (62 miles) per hour. People described the tornado as having “the sound of a jet engine,” and reported feeling changes in the environmental pressure when it arrived, Armando Caymares with the Institute of Meteorology said. The sound of sirens could be heard throughout the city in the early hours Credit: Adalberto Roque/AFP “[The tornado] caught me in the street, in the car with my wife and children,” actor Luis “Panfilo” Silva wrote on his social media account. “I had to dodge fallen trees, flooded areas and strong winds until I managed to get home. We experienced great fear,” he wrote.
Not anymore, though. A judge ruled back in May 2018 that the President couldn’t block people, so these days the horror master is free to hit that reply button as often as he likes.

WASHINGTON/HONG KONG (Reuters) – Huawei’s CFO “should not be a hostage” in Sino-U.S. relations, her lawyer said on Tuesday, after the United States announced criminal charges against herself and the Chinese firm just days before crunch trade talks with Beijing. The Justice Department charged Huawei Technologies Co Ltd and its chief financial officer with conspiring to violate U.S. sanctions on Iran by doing business through a subsidiary it tried to hide and that was reported on by Reuters in 2012 and 2013. In a separate case, the Justice Department charged the telecommunications equipment maker with stealing robotic technology from T-Mobile US Inc. Huawei has said the companies settled their dispute in 2017.
The Duke of Edinburgh has personally written to the two women injured in the car crash he was involved in on the Sandringham estate to say he is “deeply sorry.” The 97-year-old wrote to Ellie Townsend, the driver of the Kia Carens that collided with his Land Rover as he pulled out of a sideroad, and her passenger, Emma Fairweather. It follows mounting criticism of the way both Buckingham Palace and the police handled the fallout from the crash. The Duke was pictured back at the wheel without a seatbelt just two days later, which was deemed “insensitive and inconsiderate” to the victims. In his letter to Ms Fairweather, the Duke admitted he had “failed to see the car coming” and blamed the bright winter sun that was low in the sky. He wished her a “speedy recovery from a very distressing experience” and said he felt “very contrite about the consequences.” He admitted he was left “somewhat shaken” after the accident, which resulted in him having to be pulled through the sunroof of his vehicle after it flipped onto its side, and explained that he had been advised to return to Sandringham House by a police officer shortly after the collision. The letter sent to Emma Fairweather from the DUke of Edinburgh Credit: Steve Bainbridge The Duke is understood to have given a written statement to police investigating the January 17 incident and officers are considering whether there is enough evidence to charge him with careless driving. In his later, dated January 21, he wrote: “I would like you to know how very sorry I am for my part in the accident at the Babingley cross-roads. “I have been across that crossing any number of times and I know very well the amount of traffic that uses that main road. “It was a bright sunny day and at about three in the afternoon, the sun was low over the Wash. “In other words, the sun was shining low over the main road. In normal conditions I would have no difficulty in seeing traffic coming from the Dersingham direction, but I can only imagine that I failed to see the car coming.” The note, thought to have been hand delivered and seen by the Sunday Mirror, was signed “Yours sincerely, Philip.” He also sent similarly “personal letters” to the passersby who helped pull him to safety from the wreckage. Emma Fairweather, who was injured in a car crash involving the Duke of Edinburgh Credit: PA Ms Fairweather, 46, who broke her wrist in the January 17 accident, had previously criticised the Duke for driving his replacement Land Rover on public roads so soon after the accident and complained that she had received no personal communication from him. But she said she was “chuffed” with the letter and described it as the act of “human kindness” that she had wanted. Ms Townsend. the 28-year-old driver of the car, is understood to have been left shaken by the experience after fearing for her nine-month-old baby son who was in the back seat. Prince Philip car crash scene near Sandringham Photo Buckingham Palace said Philip was “fully complying with the police investigation”. Norfolk police said: “The collision investigation is ongoing and we will not comment any further at this time.” If found to be at fault, the Duke is likely be offered a driver awareness course, with a lesson to improve their motoring skills considered more in the public interest than a court case.
Alla Wagner is searching for a new owner for her 5,000 square foot home, which, according to a report from CNN, has “three bedrooms, three full baths and two half baths, in addition to a wine cellar, panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and a pond.” Not bad.
Here’s how it works: Entrants must write a short letter (maximum 350 words) explaining why they should get the house, then mail or email it to Wagner along with a $25 entry fee. Once Wagner collects roughly 68,000 entry fees — enough to cover the house’s value — she will publish a group of semi-finalist essays on social media so people can vote for their favorites. Then, the 500 entries with the most votes will be whittled down by an “independent panel of judges,” who will select three finalists. These three finalists will then be interviewed. One of them will get the house.

The contest began on Jan. 5, and Wagner plans to run it until April 5. If there are nearly enough entries by then, she’ll extend it another three months. If she’s nowhere near her goal, she’ll cancel the contest and refund everyone’s entry fees.
As of Friday, Wagner had collected around 5,000 entries. The contest is getting more attention, though, so 68,000 may not be too far away. If you want a $25 mansion, better get that entry in.

The country will shut down 84 coal-based power plants — that’s all of them — by 2038 a government group decided on Saturday. The commission convened in Berlin to map out how to move away from coal.
Fossil fuels still account for about 40 percent of Germany’s power, according to The Guardian, despite recent gains in renewable energy sources. The country also plans to move away from nuclear energy by 2022. Once it gets there, renewable energy will be the main source of power.
The 2038 goal will cost $45 billion, according to the Los Angeles Times. The decision comes ahead of an energy report from the German coal commission to be released on Feb. 1.
Around the world Saturday, climate change activists held die-ins and other protests to spur government action like Germany’s plan.

Theriot will be taken back to Louisiana to face charges including first-degree homicide, home invasion and illegal use of weapons, the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office in Louisiana said.
The governor of Illinois on Monday issued an emergency preparedness plan ahead of a “historic” polar vortex of cold air and wind descending on much of the U.S., warning residents that temperatures were likely to plunge well below zero. Governor J.B. Pritzker said wind chill could drive temperatures to -55 degrees Fahrenheit in northern Illinois on Tuesday evening, capable of causing frostbite in a matter of minutes. “This is a potentially historic winter storm that will bring extreme cold to our state and all Illinoisans must prepare,” Pritzker said in a written statement released by his office.”Our administration is putting into place an Emergency Preparedness Plan with key state agencies as well as warning residents about these life-threatening conditions.” The so-called polar vortex weather system was expected to send frigid winds that circulate around the North Pole across much of the United States from the Dakotas through New England, National Weather Service meteorologist Brian Hurley said.

Israel’s prime minister warned the head of Lebanon’s Hezbollah of his army’s “lethal” power on Sunday, in reaction to Hassan Nasrallah cautioning the Jewish state against further strikes in Syria. “The lethal striking force of the IDF (Israeli army) stands facing Hezbollah,” Israel’s premier Benjamin Netanyahu said at the start of a cabinet meeting.
Sally Kuchar arrived at the Golden Gate Kennel Club Dog Show on Saturday with one goal: Pet 100 dogs. It was an optimal place for such an undertaking. The Golden Gate show is a bench show, which means that the dogs hang on on assigned benches (and are available for meet and greets) while they’re not being shown.
“Folks are encouraged to walk around and familiarize themselves with the breeds, and petting is very, very encouraged,” Kuchar explained via email.
So Kuchar made the rounds. Throughout the day, she took 100 videos of 100 dogs, each better (or good-er, if you’re still into that lingo) than the last.

A few highlights:
Kuchar said that although she’s been to the Golden Gate show five times before, this is the first time she’s taken on the 100 dog challenge. “I like doing public challenges because it holds me accountable,” she said.
As for her favorite dog, that’s obviously #100. (It’s her own dog, Skippy.) But she did also enjoy #64. “We just got along really well,” she said.
And for the most part, the dog owners were cool with Kuchar’s wholesome project. She only had one weird run-in: “I was having a great conversation with a bulldog’s owner and did let her know that I was trying to pet 100 dogs,” she said. “She looked at me quizzically and changed the subject.”
She’ll understand once she sees Kuchar’s Twitter thread.

Nato states will increase their defence spending by 100 billion dollars in response to Donald Trump’s demands that European allies shoulder a greater financial burden, the alliance’s secretary general has said. Jens Stoltenberg said on Sunday that the alliance had heard Mr Trump’s call for non-US members to shoulder a greater financial burden “loud and clear” and that allies are “stepping up.” In conciliatory comments apparently designed to smooth over repeated public criticism of other alliance members by the US leader, Mr Stoltenberg said member states had agreed to add $100 billion to defence budgets over the next two years. Mr Trump has repeatedly complained that other members of Nato do not meet their spending commitments, including a blistering tirade at the NATO summit in Brussels in July in which called other member governments “delinquent.” Jens Stoltenberg, NATO Secretary General, just stated that because of me NATO has been able to raise far more money than ever before from its members after many years of decline. It’s called burden sharing. Also, more united. Dems & Fake News like to portray the opposite!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 27, 2019 He sent shockwaves through NATO last year when he questioned the alliance’s value to the US. Last week the New York Times reported that he had multiple discussions with his top security advisers in 2018 about withdrawing. Speaking on Fox News, a channel favoured by the president, Mr Stoltenberg praised Mr Trump’s tough line. “President Trump has been very clear. He is committed to NATO… but at the same time he has clearly stated that NATO allies need to invest more,” said the former Norwegian prime minister. “So we see some real money and real results, and we see that a clear message from President Trump is having an impact. NATO allies have heard the president loud and clear. NATO allies are stepping up.” “What he’s doing is to help us adapt the alliance, which we need,” he added. “This is a clear message to Russia and I think they see that.” Member nations agreed in 2014 to spend two percent of their gross domestic products on defence by 2024. But only four of the alliance’s 29 countries have already met that target with just 15 expected to reach it by the deadline. Later on Sunday Mr Trump welcomed the praise, taking credit for the pledge of additional funding. He tweeted: “Jens Stoltenberg, NATO Secretary General, just stated that because of me NATO has been able to raise far more money than ever before from its members after many years of decline. It’s called burden sharing. Also, more united. Dems & Fake News like to portray the opposite!” Mr Trump’s public doubts about the utility of the Nato alliance have alarmed European allies concerned about a repeat of Russia’s 2014 annexation of Crimea and invasion of east Ukraine.
Search efforts were paralyzed for much of the day on fears another dam could give way in the Vale SA iron ore mining complex in the state of Minas Gerais. The collapsed dam at Vale’s Corrego do Feijao mine buried mining facilities and nearby homes in the town of Brumadinho and killed at least three dozen people. Firefighters spent Sunday morning evacuating thousands from their homes before resuming search-and-rescue efforts in the afternoon once civil defense authorities ruled out the risk of another dam burst and called off the evacuation.
