In this remote outpost in Siberia, the cold is no small affair.

Eyelashes freeze, frostbite is a constant danger and cars are usually kept running even when not being used, lest their batteries die in temperatures that average minus-58 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter, according to news reports.

This is Oymyakon, a settlement of some 500 people in Russia’s Yakutia region, that has earned the reputation as the coldest permanently occupied human settlement in the world.

It is not a reputation that has been won easily. Earlier this week, a cold snap sent temperatures plunging toward record lows, with reports as extreme as minus-88 degrees Fahrenheit. The village recorded an all-time low of minus-98 degrees in 2013.

Though schools in the area remain open as temperatures dip into the minus-40s, they were closed on Tuesday, the Associated Press reported.

‘I think we can call this the lowest day in Trump’s presidency … What he did was fulfill every description of him in the Michael Wolff book.’ — Even Ann Coulter is questioning Trump’s mental fitness.

Former astronaut John Young, a NASA trailblazer whose six journeys into space included a walk on the moon and commanding the first space shuttle flight, died Friday after complications from pneumonia, NASA said Saturday.

He was 87.

“NASA and the world have lost a pioneer. Astronaut John Young’s storied career spanned three generations of spaceflight; we will stand on his shoulders as we look toward the next human frontier,” NASA Administrator Robert Lightfoot said.

Cornish fishing villages

Fishing in Cornwall, England, UK, has traditionally been one of the main elements of the economy of the county. Pilchard fishing and processing was a thriving industry in Cornwall from around 1750 to around 1880, after which it went into an almost terminal decline. During the 20th century the varieties of fish taken became much more diverse and crustaceans such as crab and lobster are now significant. Much of the catch is exported to France due to the higher prices obtainable there. Though fishing has been significantly damaged by overfishing, (the Southwest Handline Fishermen’s Association has started to revive the fishing industry). However, as of 2007, stocks are improving.

A photographer unexpectedly snapped her picture at homecoming. Then, modeling agencies called.

Anok Yai doesn’t really like the picture that is on the verge of changing her life.

She concedes it’s a high-quality photo and politely thanks the people who tell her she’s beautiful, but she was surprised by the photographer aiming his camera at her during Howard University’s homecoming celebration. To her, the resulting picture makes her look like a “deer in headlights.”

Tens of thousands of people disagree. In just more than a week, that photo has brought Yai Instagram fame and gained the attention of nearly a dozen modeling agencies, she said, including one that flew her up to New York for an interview on Tuesday.

She suddenly finds herself in new and exciting territory, as a dream that she chose not to pursue has ended up pursuing her instead.

Yai was born in Egypt, but her heritage is Sudanese and her family has lived in the United States since she was 2.

The Year in Preview: Washington Post reporters predict what’s coming in 2018

Leave a comment

This past year has often been surprising, shocking and disorienting. Who would have expected the series of “storms of the century” that drowned Houston, battered Florida and left Puerto Rico without power for months? Or that a country music festival would become the site of America’s deadliest modern mass shooting? Or that a Democrat would win a Senate seat from Alabama? But looking back at Outlook’s last Year in Preview issue, the broad outlines of 2017 were clear. Washington Post staffers predicted that establishment political parties would hold off most extremist elements, that tensions would arise between federal political appointees and government scientists, and that technology would increasingly try to do our thinking for us. So, once again, we’ve asked Post beat reporters and columnists to forecast the big stories, themes and questions they think will dominate the year ahead. From the #MeToo movement jolting the sports world to the opioid crisis worsening to big technology companies confronting their dark side, here’s what to expect in 2018.

President Trump entered the White House promising unity (in his election night speech) and depicting “American carnage” (in his inaugural address ) — a revealing rhetorical scramble that foreshadowed his first year in office. 

His 2018 is practically guaranteed to be as unpredictable. The only certainty: his gleeful (and at times self-sabotaging) use of Twitter.
