California storms bring fear of devastating mudslides

LOS ANGELES --- A year after a mudslide swept through a fire-devastated California town, killing 21 people, residents of hundreds homes in burn areas were told to pack up and leave as a Pacific storm threatened potential catastrophe. In Riverside County east of Los Angeles, mandatory evacuations were ordered Monday for a dozen areas around the Holy Fire, which swept through an enormous swath of the Cleveland National Forest and surrounding areas last August. "People in these zones MUST GO NOW. Rainstorms carry the potential for dangerous debris flows that can send mud, boulders and trees crashing down hillsides" with little or no warning, a county statement said.

Monaco signs experienced midfielder Fabregas from Chelsea

MONACO (AP) — Struggling Monaco has boosted its relegation fight by signing experienced midfielder Cesc Fabregas from Chelsea until June 2022. The deal reunites Fabregas with Thierry Henry, who played with Fabregas at Arsenal and is now Monaco's coach. Fabregas has been used to being near the top of the league during spells with Arsenal, Barcelona and Chelsea. But with Monaco it will be totally different as he goes straight into a relegation scrap, with Henry's side mired in 19th place ahead of Sunday's trip to face sixth-place Marseille. Given Monaco's precarious position, and his ability and experience, Fabregas could go straight into the side. "It's a great pleasure to join Monaco, a new project for me," Fabregas said. "I'm here to help the team and I'm impatient to start. We have a big game against Marseille on Sunday, I'm very excited." After starting out with Arsenal as a roaming attacking midfielder with a clinical eye for goal and a deft pass, Fabregas moved into a deeper-lying position over the years where his vision of the game and outstanding passing range helped him to remain influential in games with Chelsea. But he was not a regular this season for the Premier League side under its new Italian coach Maurizio Sarri. Last Saturday, an emotional Fabregas applauded Chelsea's home fans at Stamford Bridge after making his last appearance for the club in an FA Cup match against Nottingham Forest. The 31-year-old Fabregas is young enough to be considered a big signing for Monaco and he could have a major bearing on the club's chances of staying up. Avoiding serious injury helped him to play around 650 club games and to score 121 goals — winning league titles with Barcelona and Chelsea and domestic Cup competitions with all three sides. He also played over 100 times for Spain, winning two European Championships and one World Cup. Henry has signed two defenders so far during the transfer window: 22-year-old Fode Ballo-Toure from Lille and 36-year-old Brazilian Naldo from Schalke. But a move for midfielder William Vainqueur from Turkish club Antalyaspor fell through, after he failed a medical due Thursday to a calf problem......»»

Japan’s ‘suicide forest’ protected through music by ‘gatekeeper’ to save lives

One Japanese man who lives on the edge of the Aokigahara in Mt. Fuji has spent the last eight years reaching out to those who come to the "suicide forest" to end their lives --- through music. Sixty-year-old Kyochi Watanabe, a musician, believes music can lift one's anguish and despair. When in his hut, he blasts John Lennon's "Imagine", rock, and hip-hop music from his speakers as an attempt to break the silence in the forest, as per Japan Times on Dec. 25. "It's a forest of nature. It's a forest of religion. It's not that kind of place," Watanabe was quoted as saying. "Do people want to make this forest a hell?" Apart from his speakers, Watanabe also plays the guitar and sings his...Keep on reading: Japan’s ‘suicide forest’ protected through music by ‘gatekeeper’ to save lives.....»»
