Bolivian forest fires destroy two million hectares

Bolivian forest fires destroy two million hectares Scientists from La Paz estimate that regeneration of the local ecosystem will take about 300 years. The government is under pressure to declare a national emergency. Defence Minister Javier Zavaleta blamed people for starting the fires, calling them "saboteurs" who are playing a "macabre game". "We put out the fires and there are people behind us that are starting them again… We cannot control wildfires like this," he said. High temperatures and strong winds also stoked the flames over the weekend.

Mysterious underground fire has been burning near Yosemite for 5 years

Mysterious underground fire has been burning near Yosemite for 5 years For at least five years, a fire has been burning underground in the Stanislaus Forest west of Yosemite, and foresters say they have no idea what started it or exactly how big it is. The blaze is smoldering near Rosasco Meadow, roughly seven miles west of Yosemite National Park and 12 miles southwest of the town of Twain Harte. It lies under terrain scorched by the massive Rim Fire in 2013. Groveland District Ranger Jim Junette, who oversees the Stanislaus Forest's southern area, told the Modesto Bee last week that that rangers are baffled by fire, which has consumed tree roots in a circular area with a 400-foot diameter.

The results from Israel's election committee showed Gantz's centrist Blue and White with 33 seats out of 120 and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's right-wing Likud with 31.

Final results will be published on Wednesday, it said, and there could be changes before then.

The committee said the results did not include 14 polling stations where verifications were still ongoing.

Israeli media said that meant 99.8 percent of the votes had been counted.

The third-largest total was the mainly Arab Joint List alliance, which won 13 seats, followed by the Jewish ultra-Orthodox party Shas with nine.

Another ultra-Orthodox party, United Torah Judaism, won eight seats, as did ex-defence minister Avigdor Lieberman's nationalist Yisrael Beitenu.

The results have put Netanyahu's long tenure in office at risk.

On Thursday, he acknowledged the results did not allow him to form a right-wing coalition as he hoped and instead called on Gantz to form a unity government with him.

Gantz responded by saying he would have to be prime minister in a unity government since Blue and White was the largest party.

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin plans to begin consultations with all parties voted into parliament on Sunday to decide who to choose to try to form a government.

How 'The Batman' Cast Will Shape a New Gotham .
The casting of Jeffrey Wright and Jonah Hill hints at a new direction for Matt Reeves' Dark Knight.James Gordon is, of course, a mainstay in the Batman mythos, and his role in Reeves’ upcoming film doesn’t come as a surprise. The character was most recently portrayed by J.K. Simmons in Justice League, though the most well-known live-action portrayal of the character was Gary Oldman’s in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. Oldman’s portrayal was just about as comic accurate as casting could get, and his relationship with Batman defined a significant amount of the emotional crux of those films.
