Notre Dame rector: Fragile cathedral might not be saved

Notre Dame rector: Fragile cathedral might not be savedThe rector of Notre Dame Cathedral says the Paris landmark is still so fragile that there's a “50% chance” the structure might not be saved, because scaffolding installed before this year's fire is threatening the vaults of the Gothic monument. Monsignor Patrick Chauvet said restoration work isn't likely to begin until 2021 — and described his “heartache” that Notre Dame couldn't hold Christmas services this year, for the first time since the French Revolution.

Why some of Elizabeth Warren's Medicare-for-all financing plan might be 'implausible'

Why some of Elizabeth Warren's Medicare-for-all financing plan might be 'implausible'Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) unveiled her plan to finance Medicare-for-all without a middle class tax increase Friday, and while she's received a fair amount of praise, others were quicker to point out some flaws.Josh Barro wrote in New York that he found many of the ideas in the plan to be "worthy," but he also noted that a few were "implausible," and probably don't do enough to solve the financing issues that are currently blocking the U.S.'s path to single-payer. He's not sold on the senator doubling her proposal to increase an annual wealth tax on billionaires from 3 percent to 6 percent — the proposed tax is already "constitutionally dubious," Barro writes, and he's also skeptical about her adviser's confidence in enforcing it. Along those lines, Barro doesn't think it's realistic to expect an extra $ 3 trillion per decade through increased spending on tax enforcement alone, even though the writer favors such a move himself.Ultimately, Barro says he remains convinced Warren would not enact single payer health care if elected next year since she'll either be working with a Republican-controlled Senate, or a slim Democratic majority which would still consist of moderates who wouldn't sign up for a lot of the proposals she has brought to the table.

Saudis project resolve, flash military might after Aramco attack

Saudis project resolve, flash military might after Aramco attackThousands of Saudis flocked to public celebrations across the country on Monday to mark national day, which featured a rare military parade and an air of heightened patriotism following last week’s attack on the kingdom’s energy industry. Nationalism, already on the rise under the powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, appeared amplified in the wake of Sept. 14 strikes on Saudi Aramco plants that knocked out more than half the oil production of the world’s top exporter. Riyadh and Washington have rejected a claim of responsibility by Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthis and instead blamed Tehran, which denies any involvement.

Might a tropical depression form in the Gulf of Mexico?

Might a tropical depression form in the Gulf of Mexico?A non-tropical storm over the Gulf of Mexico, which is helping to steer Humberto east of the United States may evolve into a tropical system and drift toward Texas early this week.The storm is currently situated in the middle levels of the atmosphere and will have to spin down to the surface and acquire tropical characteristics before it can be dubbed a tropical depression or storm. Sometimes systems of this nature evolve into a hybrid or sub-tropical storm.Rapid strengthening of this large system over the Gulf of Mexico is not anticipated before moving onshore. But it is possible it becomes a tropical or sub-tropical depression before moving inland later Monday or Tuesday along the Texas coast.Regardless of classification, the large circulation will stir up the Gulf of Mexico as it drifts westward. Expect seas and surf to build from the upper Gulf coast to the western Gulf coast into Tuesday. An uptick in the frequency and strength of rip currents is likely. Pockets of showers and thunderstorms being produced by the storm already will propagate westward in waves along the northern and western Gulf coast.Boaters, fishing vessels and rig operators should be prepared for increasing squalls and building seas, which will shift westward into Tuesday.There is the potential for enough rain to fall along the Texas and northeastern Gulf coast to trigger urban and flash flooding from Monday to Tuesday. Exactly how significant this becomes will depend on the track and strength of the feature as it moves inland.AccuWeather meteorologists will continue to monitor the system over the Gulf of Mexico, as well as Humberto and other features over the Atlantic Basin.Download the free AccuWeather app to stay alert of tropical weather advisories.

Study finds the universe might be 2 billion years younger

Study finds the universe might be 2 billion years youngerThe universe is looking younger every day, it seems. New calculations suggest the universe could be a couple billion years younger than scientists now estimate, and even younger than suggested by two other calculations published this year that trimmed hundreds of millions of years from the age of the cosmos. The huge swings in scientists’ estimates — even this new calculation could be off by billions of years — reflect different approaches to the tricky problem of figuring the universe’s real age.
