nbcnews A boat is dwarfed by a tall, bleached "bathtub ring" on the rocky banks of Lake Powell in Page, Arizona. As severe drought grips parts of the western United States, a below average flow of water is expected to enter Lake Powell and Lake Mead, the two biggest reservoirs of the Colorado River Basin. Lake Powell is currently at 45 percent of capacity and is at risk of seeing its surface elevation fall below 1,075 feet above sea level by September, which would be the lowest level on record.

  •   defuturo The only reason why she got away with murder is the incompetence of the police in Italy. They mishandled the evidence and breeched international law several times during her interrogation. Obviously the defence milked these weaknesses until she was acquitted. I agree with Alan Dershowitz on this case. The evidence was sufficient and she should have been extradited following a conviction. I guess justice can be undermined for political gain sometimes. 2mon
