Will the U.S. send nuclear bombs into hurricanes?

Should President Trump be worried about Joe Walsh's primary challenge?

Well no, not in the sense that he's going to lose to Walsh because he won't. Not even close. But it's certainly not helpful to have a former Trump-y conservative out there saying the president is totally unfit for office.

Will the House subpoena of Rob Porter mean anything?

I don't think it will change anything. I don't think the Democrats are closer to impeachment at this point. But Porter was potentially witness to alleged acts of obstruction of justice and it's good for Democrats to keep that story out there in the news.

Will the gun control talks go anywhere?

I don't think that they will. President Trump, as he has after previous attacks, is kind of all over the map on this, particularly on background checks. So I think the talks once again unfortunately fizzle out to nothing.

Final question: will the United States send nuclear bombs into hurricanes?

No, they won't. President Trump has denied he suggested this but I think the reporting is quite solid from Axios. But this is actually been looked at in the past and dismissed as a ridiculous and dangerous idea.

In the southern Italian region of Basilicata, home to the Val d'Agri Oil Centre known as COVA, hydrocarbon processing has undergone a radical digital transformation. COVA boasts one of the world's first fully digitized hydrocarbon plants, but why? Two primary reasons: infrastructure and information. Val d'Agri has the largest onshore hydrocarbon deposit in mainland Europe. The site is expansive and highly advanced, and the plant features a sophisticated sensor system built to capture massive amounts of data. Maintenance checks, equipment monitoring, inspections and measurements are tracked in a fully integrated digital system designed to prevent corrosion and ensure cleaner, more sustainable natural gas processing.

Well, we still don't know who exactly launched the spectacular aerial attack on Saudi Arabia's main oil processing facility over the weekend, which knocked 5% of the world's oil offline and sent crude prices into their biggest one day jump in decades.

The attack on Saudi Arabia's Abqaiq oil facility knocked out about 5 percent of total global oil supplies in one go. Saudi Arabia accounts for about 12 percent of global crude output in total, and has been at that level for years now. Here's a look at how today's other top producers, the US, Russia, Canada, and Iraq have fared over the past thirty years.

Israeli Elections 2.0 — Israelis go to the polls again today for the second time in five months. Back in April, Prime Minister Benjamin (Bibi) Netanyahu's Likud party (just barely) won the most votes, but failed to form a governing coalition, paving the way for new elections. The big question today is: how many Israelis have actually changed their minds in such a short timeframe? Last time, Likud and the centrist Blue and White coalition each won 35 Knesset seats, and polls show the two parties are still neck and neck, while secular right-winger Avigdor Lieberman — whose dissent in May left Bibi one seat short of a majority — is gaining steam. If this holds, Bibi would not have a majority again, and a complicated rotating premiership, national-unity government, or even a third election, could result. We are watching for results shortly...

1 billion: West African leaders have pledged $1 billion to combat the growing threat of Islamic extremism in the region. Mali-based insurgent groups with links to the Islamic State and al Qaeda have since spilled over into neighboring countries, hitting Burkina Faso particularly hard in recent months.
