US Election 2020: Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris Debate

With less than a month to go before Election Day, the Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris met in Salt Lake City, Utah, for the only vice presidential debate of 2020.

According to CBS Evening News anchored by Norah O’Donnell, It’s unclear how much tonight’s debate will sway voters, many of whom have already cast their ballots.

At least 5.6 million people have already voted in states where early voting has begun.

Ahead of the debate, polls showed Harris is the only candidate at the top of the ticket with a net-positive favorability rating – on average in national polls, more Americans knew her positively than negatively.

Pence’s favorability is lagging – an average of 48% view him unfavorably, and 43% favorably per an average from Real Clear Politics.

NXIVM Sex cult Leader 'Keith Raniere' Bags 120 years in prison

NXIVM sex cult leader Keith Raniere Bags 120 years in prison

Keith Raniere, the founder of a cult-like group that kept women as virtual sex prisoners to service him in upstate New York, was sentenced to 120 years in prison on Tuesday.
According to NBC News, This shadowy group popularly known as NXIVM operated near Albany, New York, has been the subject of the HBO docuseries “The Vow.”

Raniere was convicted on federal sex trafficking, racketeering and possession of child pornography charges last year for his role in the alleged sex cult called NXIVM (pronounced “nexium”).

In a jailhouse interview that aired Friday on “Dateline NBC,” Raniere apologized for the “tragedy” and “hurt” he caused victims — but also said that he’s not guilty of any crimes.

“I am innocent,” Raniere said.

“This is a horrible tragedy with many, many people being hurt,” he added. “There is a horrible injustice here. And whether you think I’m the devil or not, the justice process has to be examined.”

 While running a purported self-help organization near Albany, New York, he created a secret sorority called DOS in which female “slaves” turned over compromising materials that were used to blackmail and force them into sex, prosecutors said.

One former NXIVM member, India Oxenberg, daughter of “Dynasty” star Catherine Oxenberg, said once she became ensnared in the group, it was difficult to leave.

“When you’re unaware, it’s so easy to be led astray, especially by people who are masters at manipulation,” Oxenberg told ABC’s “Good Morning America” this month.

Zeta, the 27th Named Storm upgrades to Hurricane, US Gulf Coast residents await Landfall

Zeta, the 27th Named Storm upgraded to Hurricane, US Gulf Coast residents await Landfall

Zeta, the 27th named storm of the 2020 Atlantic season is likely to make its landfall along the U.S. Gulf Coast which is still recovering from Laura and Delta.

 Zeta, the storm that formed in the Caribbean over the weekend, gained strength Monday afternoon to become a hurricane, which forecasters warn is likely to make landfall along the U.S. Gulf Coast, where storm-beleaguered residents are fearful of yet another round of destruction.

Zeta, the 27th named storm of the 2020 season, had maximum sustained winds of 80 mph as it intensified into a Category 1 hurricane centered about 90 miles southeast of Cozumel island off Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, the National Hurricane Center said.

It is expected to break a record by becoming the 11th named storm to make landfall in the U.S. this season, with southeastern Louisiana potentially getting slammed around Wednesday afternoon, according to forecasters. Heavy rains, however, will already be felt in the central Gulf Coast on Tuesday night, spreading across eastern Mississippi and Alabama.

According to NBC News, Zeta could revert to a tropical storm by the time it makes landfall in the U.S.

“It’s going to be a close call with remaining a Category 1,” said Joe Rua, a lead forecaster for the National Weather Service in Lake Charles.

A hurricane watch was in effect Monday evening from Morgan City, Louisiana, to the Mississippi-Alabama border, including Lake Pontchartrain and metropolitan New Orleans. New Orleans officials also called for a voluntary evacuation Monday of some vulnerable districts as sandbags were being assembled.

No matter the storm’s strength, Gov. John Bel Edwards said, Louisiana, which is still recovering from hurricanes Laura and Delta, wouldn’t take Zeta for granted. He issued a state of emergency Monday and prepared 1,150 members of the Louisiana National Guard to be activated.

“Good thing and the bad thing is we’ve had a lot of practice this year,” Edwards told reporters.

Laura made landfall 1n Louisiana near the Texas border on Aug. 27 as a powerful Category 4 storm, with wind speeds of 150 mph and life-threatening storm surges.

Six weeks later, Delta, a Category 2 storm, raked southwestern Louisiana again, marking the sixth time this season that Louisianans had to prepare for a hurricane. Hundreds of thousands of households across Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi were left without power.

Lake Charles, the heart of Louisiana’s Cajun country, felt a double whammy of devastation from Laura and Delta. As residents were picking up the pieces from Laura, Delta dealt another blow.

While forecasters say Lake Charles and the rest of southwestern Louisiana are expected to dodge this latest storm, some residents rebuilding from the pair of hurricanes remain wary.

“Oh, Lord, we’ve been watching every day since I heard about it,” said Hazel Logan, 44, who was getting free meals Monday from the United Way of Southwest Louisiana’s hurricane relief center in Lake Charles.

“It’s saying it’s going more eastward, but they said that with the other storm,” Logan said, adding: “I’m just taking it day by day. I can’t lie and say I’m not concerned.”

Across Louisiana, tens of thousands of residences and other structures were partly ruined or destroyed by Laura, which primarily caused wind damage, and Delta, which brought intense flooding, said Ashley Rodrigue, a spokeswoman for the state fire marshal’s office. The agency’s surveying is used to help communities obtain federal emergency funding,

Since early September, the United Way of Southwest Louisiana’s relief center in Lake Charles has been operating drive-thru service to pick up food, water, cleaning supplies and baby products donated from around the world.

The nonprofit has been serving upward of 2,000 meals a day, President and CEO Denise Durel said. While evacuation orders temporarily halted its operations, Durel said, it is ready for whatever Zeta may bring — and whatever the people of the region may need.

“I don’t wish Zeta on anyone, on any community,” Durel said, “but we’re definitely just praying every day it spares us.

“I can’t even imagine what the longevity of the damage will be if we get hit again,” she said.
