“It was my Hive camera in my grandson’s bedroom,” the 40-year-old explained,“I didn’t even realise I had it on camera until this morning.”

Thankfully her 3-year-old grandson was not staying in the bedroom last night.

The Hive camera in the corner of the room captured the bright light that flashed across the sky at 4:46am, before the deafening crash of thundersnow that followed.

The rare weather phenomenon is caused when the air low to the ground is warm enough to cause a thunderstorm, while the air above it is cold enough to create snow.

As the snow falls, the lightning is reflected off tens of millions of snowflakes, making the storm brighter than usual.

CBAK Energy Technology – Caught In The EV Hype, But EV Battery Revenue Has Collapsed (NASDAQ:CBAT)

Certain behavior in stock trading never changes. In the case of CBAK Energy Technology (CBAT), the behavior is buying a “a hot stock in hot space” with no attention to company fundamentals. The hot space for CBAK Energy is lithium batteries for electric vehicles (EVs).

The stock has rocketed from $4 to over $11 in two trading days. 60 days ago, it was under $1. During the last two days, the stock has traded over 200 million shares, or about 7 times its float. It is safe to say the buying and selling is more by the day traders of Robinhood rather than followers of Warren Buffett.

The analysis should bring to the attention of CBAK Energy stock traders the likelihood that the stock will

Santa Cruz catalytic converter thieves caught on camera

LIVE OAK — Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office investigators are investigating a link between a recent catalytic converter theft to similar recent thefts in the area.

As of Friday, the Sheriff’s Office already had received 20 reported catalytic converter thefts this month — adding to a tally of more than 130 for the year, according to a release from department spokeswoman Ashley Keehn.

Most recently, video surveillance footage showed two individuals driving up to a residential driveway in the 1900 block of Maciel Avenue to look beneath a Toyota Prius, drive off and then return to remove the part around 4 a.m. The thieves, arriving in what appears to be a black Honda Civic, are seen removing the catalytic converter — including jacking up the car and sawing through its connection — in about three minutes’ time.

“The majority of these cases involve theft from the Toyota Prius — which

Steve Bannon has been outed for his involvement in running a network of misinformation pages on Facebook. Who could have possibly seen this coming.

Facebook has talked a big game about monitoring election misinformation, and yet the independent activist network Avaaz said it had to alert the company to the pages before it removed them for coordinated inauthentic behavior. The group didn’t need an army of 35,000 moderators to figure this out, and yet Facebook consistently fails to spot the troublemakers that journalists and researchers with less funding and staff seem to keep spotting. As they say: makes you think.

Avaaz said that it alerted Facebook to the pages on Friday night. By that time, in aggregate, Avaaz says the top seven pages—Brian Kolfage, Conservative Values, The Undefeated, We Build the Wall Inc, Citizens of the American Republic, American Joe, and Trump

Deadly Snake Removed From Home Air Conditioner Unit, Rescue Caught On Camera

Warm weather forces snakes to move around and find cool spots. Now, what could be better than chilling inside an air conditioner unit.

A red-bellied black snake was recently found in an air conditioner unit at an Australian home.

In a Facebook post, Stuart McKenzie from Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers 24/7 wrote that it “took ages” for them to remove the snake from the unit.

“What’s the go with venomous snakes in aircon units lately haha. This took ages to get the snake out but we got there eventually,” he wrote.

McKenzie added he had switched off the power before removing the reptile.

“Before any aircon guys or sparkies have a heart attack I had all of the power off to the aircon before poking around,” he said.
