Puerto Rico Debates Who Put Out the Lights in Mosquito Bay

Puerto Rico Debates Who Put Out the Lights in Mosquito Bay | Top E-News | Scoop.it
The bay is normally lit up by microscopic plankton — an important tourist attraction — but in January it abruptly lost its glow, alarming scientists.
Juan Agramonte's insight:

The abrupt blackout has alarmed government officials, scientists and Viequenses, the islanders who depend on tourism to fuel their lackluster economy; one tour operator has already shut down. The bay has gone dark before, but never for more than several days. For now, visits to the bay are limited to weekends until the bay heals itself.

Rally to celebrate Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s homecoming canceled amid deserter claims

Rally to celebrate Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s homecoming canceled amid deserter claims | Top E-News | Scoop.it
The hero’s welcome awaiting Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was canceled Wednesday by officials in his hometown. The scheduled June 28 rally honoring the favorite son of Hailey, Idaho, was spiked over worries that the expected turnout would be too large, city administrator Heather Dawson told Reuters.
Juan Agramonte's insight:

"The small Idaho hometown of released captive Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has canceled plans for a celebration later this month, citing security concerns after it was inundated with negative emails and angry phone calls.

Organizers released a statement Wednesday saying that because of national media attention on Bergdahl's story, they expect a significant increase in the number of people planning to attend the event — some to protest, and others to support the Bergdahl family. The organizers said that the town, with just 8,000 people, doesn't have the infrastructure to support a big event." more at  @POLITICO

The US military is getting ready to attack the Assad regime, but the aftermath remains unclear.
