MIKE PENCE. Invites “Christian rabbi” to intone prayers for synagogue victims before campaign event: ‘Pence did a rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and instead of doing the work to find a local rabbi, they got a “Messianic Jewish Rabbi” named Loren Jacobs to intone prayers to… “Jesus the Messiah.” Messianic Jews believe in Jesus, and Messianic Jews are not considered Jewish by mainstream or traditional Jewish sects.’
INSTAGRAM. The new haven for the alt-right? “As other social networks crack down on right-wing extremists, Instagram has become a surprising refuge for far-right figures who have somehow managed to avoid being banned from that site as well. Perhaps most remarkably, at least one of the right-wing figures present on Instagram has already been jettisoned from the social network’s own parent company, Facebook.”

MARYLAND. Black youth football team with undefeated record barred from playoffs with no reason given: “There was an e-mail sent to us at 9 p.m. [Saturday] saying we were no longer a part of the Carroll County Football League, and our children were not eligible to participate in post-season activities such as playoffs. I believe it is the racial makeup of our program, because we don’t look like other programs in the league and we are treated differently. When you don’t give us a reason, the only think it has to do with the makeup of our organization, because our organization is predominantly black, from top to bottom. “

ERUPTION OF THE DAY. Krakatau. “Anak Krakatau (Son of Krakatau) is the currently active part of the famous Krakatau (also Krakatoa) volcano. Video shows vulcanian / strombolian activity in October 2018, filmed from nearby Rakata Island, a remnant of the volcanic structure in existence before the devastating 1883 eruption. Probably due to a change in ash characteristics, eruptions were suddenly accompanied by numerous static discharges, also known as volcanic lightning. In the first sequence, glowing volcanic bombs can be seen setting fire to vegetation and causes large splashes as they fall into the sea around the Anak Krakatau Island.”
