Philippines lowers volcano alert, thousands can return home -

Philippines lowers volcano alert, thousands can return homeAn explosive eruption of restive Taal volcano no longer appears imminent, Philippine authorities said Sunday as they lifted most of a mass evacuation order but warned residents to remain ready to flee. Warning signs such as earthquakes have been steadily waning since Taal burst to life two weeks ago with plumes of ash and lava, forcing over 135,000 people into shelters over fears a massive blast was coming. The nation's seismological agency said steadily shrinking ash and gas emissions were signs of "decreased tendency towards hazardous explosive eruption", leading them to lower the alert by a notch.

India police decommission historic British-era riflesPolice in northern India on Sunday bid goodbye to the historic British-era bolt-action rifles after using them for one last salute during the annual Republic Day parade. The Lee-Enfield .303 rifle was the main firearm of British colonial military forces and, despite being designated "obsolete" around 25 years ago, it has been the main weapon used by police in Uttar Pradesh state over seven decades. "They have been in use since independence (from the British in 1947) and now they'll be replaced by INSAS (Indian Small Arms System) and SLRs (Self-Loading Rifles)," said police superintendent Amit Verma.

SNL: Jon Lovitz’s Alan Dershowitz Meets Adam Driver’s Jeffrey Epstein in Hell -

SNL: Jon Lovitz’s Alan Dershowitz Meets Adam Driver’s Jeffrey Epstein in HellThe first Saturday Night Live episode of 2020 opened with Beck Bennett’s Mitch McConnell and Cecily Strong’s Susan Collins conferring about the impeachment trial in the Senate. “We all know this impeachment proceeding is a sham and a hoax,” the Senate majority leader said. “Republicans are simply requesting a fair trial: no witnesses, no evidence. That way we can acquit President Trump and focus on the real problem in this country: teenagers who try marijuana.” “Well, the evidence against Trump is pretty damning, so I’m still on the fence,” Collins replied with a wink.But soon they were joined by the night’s big guest star: former SNL cast member Jon Lovitz as Trump’s defense attorney Alan Dershowitz. Trevor Noah Destroys Alan Dershowitz’s Impeachment Hypocrisy“Yes, hello, everyone, it’s I, Alan Dershowitz,” he said. “It’s wonderful to be here. Because I’m not welcome anywhere else. There’s a lot of haters out there, for no good reason. But like I said to my client and dear friend Jeffrey Epstein, haters gonna hate!” When Dershowitz was told he should probably avoid talking about Epstein, he instead compared Trump to his previous client, O.J. Simpson. Then the cold-open sketch took a hard left turn as Dershowitz appeared to have a heart attack, finding himself in hell, where he was joined by Epstein, as portrayed by this week’s host Adam Driver. “What are you doing here?” Dershowitz asked, to which Epstein replied, “Just hangin’.” “I’ve gotta say, I love what you’ve been doing for the president,” Epstein added. “All we get down here is Fox News and it’s been a joy to see you work.” For more, listen to the most recent episodes of The Last Laugh podcast.
