President Obama: “We Will Degrade and Ultimately Destroy ISIL”

Pictured above: President Barack Obama delivers an address to the nation on the U.S. Counterterrorism strategy to combat ISIL, in the Cross Hall of the White House, Sept. 10, 2014. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza) VAV!/September 11, 2014/Washington "ISIL is not "Islamic." No religion condones the killing of innocents. And the vast majority of ISIL's victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state. It was formerly al Qaeda's affiliate in Iraq, and has taken advantage of sectarian strife and Syria's civil war to gain territory on both sides of the Iraq-Syrian border. It is recognized by no government, nor by the people it subjugates. ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way." - President Obama "ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple." In an address from the State Floor of the White House on September 10, 2014, President Obama spoke to the nation about ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) -- and a comprehensive strategy to degrade and ultimately destroy the terrorist group.  Ushering in a new military front in the Middle East, President Obama authorized U.S. airstrikes inside Syria, along with expanded strikes in Iraq.

Joan Rivers

Pictured above: Joan Rivers at a Benefit Concert/Taken on March 24, 2010/Photographer: Bob Jagendorf/flickr/CC VAV!/September 4, 2014/New York/NY The legendary comedian and fashion critic, Joan Rivers, died at 1:17 pm EST on September 4, 2014 at Mount Sinai in New York. Her death came a week after suffering a cardiac arrest during a routine medical procedure. She was 81.  An investigation is being made into her death. For decades Rivers made America laugh with a  humor that was both scathing and satirical.  She focused on the lives of celebrities and high profile figures.  Joan, a groundbreaking comedian with a career of over five decades, became a household name in 1965 where she appeared as a guest on The Tonight Show ,hosted by Johnny Carson, whom she also recognized as her mentor.  She became a substitute host on the Show in 1983.

 

Hurricanes Throughout History

Pictured above: Mississippi Gulf Coast in august 1969 following Hurricane Camille. This scene of destruction was typical of the damage left by Hurricane Camille when it ravaged the Mississippi Gulf Coast in August 1969. The eye of the storm passed directly over the Bay of St.Louis and killed or injured hundreds of Gulf Coast residents. (SSC-97-032)/NASA. VAV!/August 29, 2014 "By Chrismus! Wasn't that hurricane a lulu? I was settin here readin when I noticed it was gettin so damn dark. I couldn't see... I looked out the winder and saw our big tree going over as easy as you please -not all at once, but little by little. I watched it down and said that I bet the one in front wouldn't go for that was stronger. Then I saw one of our garage doors spinning by the winder and right across the street on to Doctor Brown's lawn. Somehow it got going on its edge like one of them straw hats we used to wear, and it was certainly making time." - One witness's description September 21, 1938, regarding a Category 3 hurricane nicknamed "the Long Island Express" Hurricanes have been and always will be an integral part of life in the United States...the Hurricane season in the Atlantic begins June 1st and ends November 30th and the Eastern Pacific hurricane season begins May 15th and also ends November 30th.    What exactly is a Hurricane? Hurricanes, also known as cyclones in the western Pacific or typhoons in the Indian Ocean, are large and violent storm systems that begin in tropical seas during the summer or fall.  They are capable of producing torrential rains, large hail, dangerous waves, epic flooding, violent winds with a well-defined circulation and minimum sustained winds of 74 miles per hour (64 knots) or higher, and tornadoes,  all of which may result in catastrophic property damage and staggering loss of life.
