Subject: Exclusive: Russia's election meddling
A social media campaign calling itself "Blacktivist" and linked to the Russian government used both Facebook and Twitter in an apparent attempt to amplify racial tensions during the US presidential election, two sources with knowledge of the matter told CNN. The accounts are part of a cache being handed over to Congress in the coming days.
Both "Blacktivist" accounts regularly shared content intended to stoke outrage. "Black people should wake up as soon as possible," one post on the Twitter account read. "Black families are divided and destroyed by mass incarceration and death of black men," another read. The accounts also posted videos of police violence against African Americans.
The "Blacktivist" accounts provide further evidence that Russian-backed social media accounts saw racial tensions as something to be exploited to achieve the broader Russian goal of dividing Americans and creating chaos in US politics during a campaign in which race repeatedly became an issue.

Subject: News Alert: Puerto Rico is entirely without power as Hurricane Maria hammers the island with a force not seen in 'modern history'
Hurricane Maria raked across Puerto Rico Wednesday as the most powerful storm to strike the island in more than 80 years, ripping roofs off buildings and filling homes with water, and knocking out power to the entire population.
"When we can get outside, we will find our island destroyed," Puerto Rico's emergency management director, Abner Gomez, said at a midday press conference.

Secretary of Energy Rick Perry Announces High Performance Computing for Materials Program to Help Industry Develop New, Improved Materials for Severe Environments | Department of Energy
On-Site Generation And Storage Protect Against Power Outages
A 2013 U.S. Department of Energy study found power outages caused by extreme weather had an average economy-wide cost of $18-$33 billion from 2003-2012, and urged investments in resilient infrastructure to strengthen the grid against the increasingly frequent and intense severe weather.
Sandy led New York State to begin its Reforming the Energy Vision proceeding to invest $30 billion to establish a cleaner and more resilient distributed grid, and spurred New Jersey to invest in distributed clean energy generation and storage at critical state facilities and along transportation infrastructure, including a first-of-its-kind system designed to keep passenger trains operational in a grid failure.

FPL Nuclear Waste "Not Likely" to Leak into Miami's Drinking Water, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Rules | Miami New Times
FPL remains as the ugliest of monopolies in the US. May be the last to fall on their existing nukes (even though they are right on the coast near the capital of Latin America in a hurricane zone and already leaking salt water from their cooling into the aquifer).
Nothing like the honey pot of nukes to have clout with politicians.
