    Tropical Storm Sally roars through Gulf, forecast to strengthen to hurricane before landfall near Louisiana-Mississippi border.
    Tropical Storm Sally triggered evacuations in Louisiana on Sunday as the northern Gulf Coast prepared for it to make landfall late Monday as a hurricane with 90 mph sustained winds.

    Hurricane and tropical storm warnings were in effect for a swath of the northern Gulf Coast from the Florida Panhandle to Morgan City, Louisiana, as Sally gathered strength. The storm appears likely to make landfall somewhere near the Louisiana-Mississippi border, potentially in New Orleans, according to forecast models.

    A blitz of wildfires across Oregon, California and Washington has destroyed thousands of homes and a half dozen small towns this summer, scorching more than 4 million acres (1.6 million hectares) and killing more than two dozen people since early August.

    In times of crisis, we look to our leaders to give us direction, stability, and, most of all, hope. In San Miguel, we have a well-established group of exceptional NGOs, possibly the most successful group in Mexico. As it became clear that this insidious virus was not going to disappear quickly and would cut deeply and painfully into the lives of the most vulnerable, the leadership teams of these critical organizations quickly galvanized into action.

    Joining Hands in Solidarity: Mutual Accompaniment and Affective Conviviality.
    Centuries of colonial and capitalist oppression and exploitation not only threaten global ecocide but—some indigenous groups aside—have diminished humanity’s powers to collectively save our earthly home. To strengthen those powers, a group of psychologists and their students are spreading horizontal relationships that liberate needed but repressed capacities.
