Chicago Reporter Sues Lori Lightfoot After Press Credential Revoked For Daring To Go Against Her Lies

(Media Right News) — Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has been slowly letting the city in Illinois go downhill. She was lighthanded on rioters and looters during the Antifa BLM riots of 2020 and beyond. She has railed against Republicans who sent illegal immigrants to her city despite being pro-illegal immigrant.

She has overseen crime increases plaguing the city's residents. Now, McDonald's might even consider putting their money elsewhere due to crime and challenges in the city. Recently, a reporter spoke out against Lightfoot and had his credentials pulled. He is pushing back, however. Journalist William J. Kelly filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.

He not only implicates Lightfoot but Chicago Police Department Superintendent David Brown for violating his first and fourteenth amendment rights. Kelly repeatedly questioned Lightfoot's "failures in performance" and filed suit in late August.

 Did Life Ever Exist On Mars? NASA's Perseverance Rover Finds Organic Matter In Rock Samples

(USA Today) — NASA's rover Perseverance is investigating signs of ancient life on Mars, and it has now collected some of the most promising samples from the Red Planet yet.

According to NASA, several rock samples containing organic matter were found in Jezero Crater, a 28-mile wide crater home to what scientists believe was once a river delta that formed about 3.5 billion years ago.

"Jezero was selected for this mission because ... it allows us to explore an ancient habitable environment, (and) it allows us to seek evidence of possible Martian life in rocks deposited at that time, about 3˝ billion years ago," Perseverance project scientist Ken Farley said in a recorded panel briefing about the rover's findings.

"I want to emphasize: This mission is not looking for extant life, things that are alive today. Instead, we are looking into the very distant past, when Mars' climate was very different than it is today," Farley said.

 Cruise Ship Graveyards:
Where The World's Biggest Boats Go To Die

(Dmarge) — In Izmir, Turkey, in a town called Aliaga, there is a ship processing centre where old cargo ships and container ships get stripped for parts, broken down and recycled. In 2020 this processing port made waves around the world when images arose of the place being used as a graveyard for cruise ships.

So: what goes on in a cruise ship graveyard? How do they recycle these giant floating beasts? In the Aliaga shipyard, they use a landing method. The way this works, according to the NGO Shipbreaking Platform, is that "the bow of the vessel is grounded on the shore while the stern is still afloat." Then: "the blocks are… lifted by cranes onto a drained and impermeable working area."

Steel and metal scraps are then smelted down for construction material or sold to car manufacturers. Depending on the size of each ship, each vessel typically needs a couple of thousand workers to recycle, and the process for each ship can take up to a year.
