Telegraph: Frozen Britain facing energy crisis as gas plant explosion raises prices by a third

The shutdown of the North Sea’s most important oil and gas pipeline system on Monday has been compounded by a spectacular explosion at a major gas processing facility in Austria called Baumgarten, which is the main point of entry for Russian gas into Europe.

Prices across the continent, which imports a third of all its gas from Russia, rocketed in the immediate aftermath of the blast, which left one person dead and 18 injured.

CBS:Tom Brady Nay-Sayers Out In Full Force After Monday Night Loss

Last night’s Patriot loss to the Dolphins added fuel to the fire of people aching for the end of the aging quarterback’s career. The article quickly breaks down into tweet reading which isn’t journalism.

If you go read it, tell me what the heck that headline means! I don’t think it’s English.

Here’s the letter where Office of Compliance omits a $200k sexual harassment settlement, even though it’s the office that approved it. Helsinki Commission no-comments & kicks back to House “employment office.” This is an incredible game of hide the ball. http://bit.ly/2yPS5xK

TELEGRAPH:Trump’s decision on Jerusalem shatters the Palestinian old guard

For more than 20 years, Saeb Erekat, the Palestinian’s chief peace negotiator, has chased the dream of a two-state solution and the hope of an independent Palestinian state.
He followed it to the White House under four different US presidents, haggled over it in secret and public negotiations with hard faced Israeli negotiators, and defended it against sceptical Palestinians on the streets of Jericho.
But in the minutes after Donald Trump’s announcement that the US was recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Mr Erekat stood in front of the television cameras and concluded that his dream of two decades was finally dead.
“Unfortunately, President Trump just destroyed any possibility of two states,” he said in a quivering voice.
The US decision on Jerusalem has shattered Mr Erekat and other members of the Palestinian leadership’s old guard, leaving them reeling and uncertain of where to try to lead their people next.

LOL! Since WHEN?
