Why has the western United States suddenly been shaking so violently over the past several weeks? On Tuesday, the constant barrage of headlines about the coronavirus pandemic was interrupted by an enormous earthquake that hit central Idaho.

So when a magnitude 6.5 earthquake stuck not too far from Boise on Tuesday, it really stunned a whole lot of people.

As the Iranian regime struggles to manage coronavirus crisis, will it target Israel?

The Norris Geyser Basin, the oldest, hottest and most dynamic thermal area in the park, was observed to rise 5.9 inches each year from 2013 to 2015 - an unusual event that left researchers baffled. Now, using satellite radar and GPS data, experts have determined the ground deformation was caused by magma intrusions trapped below the basin's surface. As magma made its way to the surface, the pressure pushed rocks above it up and created an erratic pulsating effect, according to National Geographic.

This is not the end of the world, according to Christians who study the end of the world
It sure might feel apocalyptic. But not if you ask Christian writers and pastors who have spent years focusing their message on the Book of Revelation - the New Testament's final book. It lays out a lurid, poetic vision of the End Times, in which many evangelical leaders interpret it to mean that Jesus will return to Earth, believers will be raptured to heaven and those left behind will suffer seven dreadful years of calamities. Most of these Revelation-focused prophesiers don't see coronavirus as heralding the Second Coming and the end of life on Earth as we know it.

Coronavirus threatens your 'digital liberties,' privacy group warns
It may be necessary to curb some civil liberties in times of emergency, such as the coronavirus outbreak, but any measure must he limited and temporary, the the Electronic Frontier Foundation advised Tuesday. "As in other major emergencies in the past, there is a hazard that the data surveillance infrastructure we build to contain COVID-19 may long outlive the crisis it was intended to address," the organization said. "The government and its corporate cooperators must roll back any invasive programs created in the name of public health after [the] crisis has been contained." Closely related to that concern is the worry over transparency.

US hospitals are preparing for 96 million coronavirus infections and nearly half a million deaths from the outbreak, leaked documents have revealed.

Massive 'David' statue topples at cemetery...
It's only a little bit ironic that a statue of David, the biblical hero famous for bringing down Goliath with only a slingshot and a stone, met a similar fate in Glendale. That's what happened Sunday morning when the full-size marble reproduction of Michelangelo's "David" on display at Forest Lawn Memorial Park toppled over and broke into pieces. But, rather than being knocked down with a rock aimed at its head, the 17-foot-tall statue seemingly fell of its own accord.

U.N. Report on Religious Freedom Reads Like LGBT Manifesto
A recently released United Nations report on religious freedom that was presented to the Human Rights Council deserves a sharp rebuke. While appearing reasonable at different junctures, the report is nothing but a frontal assault on religious autonomy and religious freedom. No wonder it was criticized by senior Vatican officials.

The United Nations Is Coming For Your Religion
The United Nations' special rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief said in a report presented to the Human Rights Council that faith must not be used to justify violence or discrimination, and that when religion seems to provoke acts of violence or discrimination - particularly against women and gays and transgenders - then the global body's own equal rights' protections must take priority over the religious teachings.
