This Navy warship went down in World War II with 49 crew members aboard. Divers finally found it after 75 years

The USS Eagle PE-56 was supporting Navy training exercises off the coast of Maine when an explosion tore it in half in April 1945.
Only 13 people survived, and 49 officers and crew members went down with the ship.
For 75 years, no one knew exactly where the submarine hunter -- and its crew -- rested at the bottom of the ocean.
But in June 2018, a team of eight wreck divers working with the Smithsonian Channel finally located it about six miles from Maine's shore.

Nayakgriri: 50 50 : A take World Cup and rest of things in Summer19


Author runs a blog to read Facts, Fiction, Fun: A Globally Local Guy. 

Life can be described at its best as a 50 50 endeavor. It is divided between happiness and sorrow, success and failure, winning and losing, hope and despair, day and night, winter and summer. At the start of  this summer of 2019, I had a wish list of three things that I had no control over to happen: Mumbai Indians winning IPL, Modi winning general elections and Kohli lifting World Cup. Summer still is at its glory in this part of world while monsoons have set in finally in most part of India ending long summer there. Ignoring IPL to be non-serious matter, on the rest two accounts it was fifty-fifty verdict. While India and Modi won riding on a very effective campaign, lack of opposition and support of aspiring India, Virat lost it thanks to bad selection and decisions, half an hour of bad cricket at crucial moment. This column has said lot about why India won when Modi won. Though we will delve upon what next after the election and what needs to be the agenda for Modi2.0, but while analyzing World Cup we should also now focus on what’s next. As many serious thinkers will find it childish to equate cricket with National cause, but for this column cricket is passion while politics is a way of life. Cricket this time was 50 overs matter and in Indian Politics its about 50 % absolute majority and only around 50% of voters bother to Vote.

Heat wave: More than 185 million under watches and warnings as temperatures climb

Peak temperatures from a potentially deadly heat wave are expected to begin Friday, and major US cities are taking special measures to prepare -- with New York City declaring an emergency.
Over the next few days, more than 85% of the lower 48's population will see temperatures above 90 degrees Fahrenheit, CNN meteorologist Dave Hennen said, and more than half will see temperatures higher than 95 degrees.
About 185 million people are under a heat watch, warning or advisory as of Friday morning.

Appalling' arson attack on Japanese animation studio kills at least 33

A man shouted "die" as he doused an animation studio with fuel and set it ablaze in Japan on Thursday, public broadcaster NHK said, killing at least 33 people in the nation's worst mass murder in nearly two decades.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called the attack in the city of Kyoto - the latest grisly killing in a nation widely known for its low crime rates - "too appalling for words" and offered condolences.
Police detained a 41-year-old man who shouted "die" as he poured what appeared to be petrol around the three-storey Kyoto Animation building shortly after 10 a.m. (0100 GMT), public broadcaster NHK reported.

What happens when parts of South Asia become unlivable?

Almost six million people are under threat from rising flood waters across South Asia, where hundreds of thousands of people have already been displaced as a result of heavy monsoon rains

The flooding comes as India was still reeling from a weeks-long water crisis amid heavy droughts and heatwaves across the country which killed at least 137 people. Experts said the country has five years to address severe water shortages, caused by steadily depleting groundwater supplies, or over 100 million people will left be without ready access to water.

Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin recalls first moments on the moon on 50th anniversary of mission

As the Eagle descended toward the Sea of Tranquility, Buzz Aldrin saw something he'd never seen before: the shadow of the lunar module cast in front of them on the moon's cratered surface.
"That was new, not something we saw in the simulator," he recalled on the eve of today's 50th anniversary of the historic Saturn V launch that carried him, Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins on a 238,000-mile journey to the moon.

Somalia hotel attack death toll rises to 26

 
At least 26 people were killed and a further 56 injured in Friday's terror attack at a hotel in Kismayo, Somalia, Jubaland state president Ahmed Madobe said Saturday morning. 

Colonel Salah Osman, a police officer who was part of the rescue operation on Friday night, told CNN that the attack began when a car bomb exploded in a suicide blast at the gate of the Asasey, a heavily fortified hotel 500 km south of the capital Mogadishu. An assault team of four attackers then entered the premises and battled with Jubaland's security forces for 12 hours.
