A Nation Divided by Turmoil: Biden's Victory is America's Failure

Another long-winded, incoherent speech fraught with inaccuracies and false accusations.  As the polls have closed and ballots are meticulously being counted across key states, many deign to criminalize Trump for his boisterous proclamations and unorthodox leadership. However, the truth of the matter may be far more sinister than you care to imagine...Biden asserts that he and his party maintain the moral high ground in this tumultuous race for presidency. But do they really? In fact, the vast majority of Southern Democrats vehemently opposed a ban on slavery while the Republican party sought to win their freedom. Indeed, it may appear that times have changed... unless you bother to read the many defamatory statements made throughout Biden's long and storied political career -- statements targeting both women and African Americans. Although to be safe, let's assume his bigotry extended far beyond that which we've covered. So as it now seems more certain than ever that we'

Indonesia's Krakatau Volcano is Erupting Yet Again

It's only been two years since Indonesia experienced a deadly tsunami resulting from a massive eruption, yet the Krakatau volcano is already in the midst of repeating the same vicious cycle...

According to Indonesia's volcanology office reports, the famed volcano has been active since the beginning of the year, but had mostly spewed just gas and dust into the air since that time. 

Starting on Friday night, however, rocks and lava were seen shooting skyward after a stretch of inactivity. Footage of the event was quickly captured thanks to webcams and satellite data.

Volcanic eruptions are incredible displays of our planet's potential for destruction.

A plethora of social media reports which purport to reveal spectacular fountains of lava and lightning are actually just samples of old media from the 2018 eruption.

Thankfully, an orange alert has already been issued for aviation in the area, as a volcanic cloud of ash currently extends up to 2,000 feet into the air. 

Moving on to the subject of the island's etymology, you'll find its name, Anak Krakatau, literally translates to "child of Krakatau." Aptly named indeed, as it was born from the legendary eruption of 1883. And in the following years, it continued to grow in size until its violent collapse during the 2018 eruption that saw lava and rock spewing forth in a dazzling, yet deadly display of primal chaos.

Although the island is remote and poses little risk to the residents of Indonesia, volcanic activity elsewhere in the nation is now on the rise. The Jakarta Post recently reported that three additional volcanoes are poised to erupt at any moment.

Do you or any of your friends reside in Indonesia? As the world's largest archipelago, it boasts 17,508 islands. Luckily, as Krakatau erupts, fatalities are unlikely due to its remote location. But what of the impending eruptions? I sincerely hope that those living in the country remain safe and healthy.
