Hurricane Harvey continues to bring devastating amounts of rain and flooding to the Gulf Coast, effecting millions of people. You can help by making a donation today. To double the impact of your contribution, Google will match the first $1 million in donations, until together we raise $2 million.

Your donation will go directly to Network for Good and will then be distributed to the American Red Cross, which will be opening shelters, providing aid, and distributing supplies to victims in Texas and across the Gulf Coast. Google will cover all processing fees so that 100% of your donation goes to where it is needed most.

Trump threatens Venezuela with sanctions "including possible targeted sanctions against Venezuela's vital oil sector." On the surface this looks very Presidential; we're punishing Maduro for an un-democratic power grab. But might there be an ulterior motive?

Venezuela's national oil company PDVSA was recently in the news along with another name: Citgo. PDVSA owns Citgo, a company which operates in the US and employs 46,000 people in a network of fuel stations, terminals, pipelines, and refineries found in 19 states. If PDVSA defaults on its loans (which they may do under economic pressure), Citgo's assets could be put in the hands of Rosneft, Russia's state-owned energy company.

Just a happy coincidence, I'm sure.
