(Extracted from "Time Magazine", 01/12/2022): "Flights out of some airports on the U.S. West Coast

were briefly halted (for around 15 minutes) by aviation regulators as a precaution on Monday, after North Korea launched a high-speed missile in a test. ... North Korea’s missle flew at almost 10 times the speed of sound into waters off its eastern coast, ratcheting up tensions in the region and with the U.S."

"Prices paid by U.S. consumers jumped 7% in December from a year earlier, the highest inflation rate since 1982 and the latest evidence that rising costs for food, rent and other necessities are heightening the financial pressures on America’s households. ... 


Rising prices have wiped out the healthy pay increases that many Americans have been receiving, making it harder for households, especially lower-income families, to afford basic expenses. Polls show that inflation has started displacing even the coronavirus as a public concern, making clear the political threat it poses to ... Democrats."

NASA Confirms Notable Meteor over Pennsylvania on January 1, 2022


NASA reported that a meteor blew up over Pittsburgh on January 1, 2022 at approximately 11:30 a.m., and as the meteor fell apart its explosion was equivalent to 30 tons of TNT.  Data from a nearby infrasound station registered the blast wave from the meteor, enabling NASA to estimate the energy given off.


NASA says the meteor weighed half a ton when it came down and was assumed to be travelling at about 45,000 miles per hour when it made its loud entrance.


“Had it not been cloudy, the fireball would have been easily visible in the daylight sky," NASA said. It added that the fireball would have been "about 100 times the brightness of the Full Moon.”


The shattering sound caused quite a frenzy among people in the Pittsburgh area, leading to a bunch of panicked 911 calls, reported CNN.



"Before the Comet comes, many nations, the good excepted, will be scoured with
want and famine. ... The Comet by its tremendous pressure, will force much out
of the ocean and flood many countries, causing much want and many plagues."
