North Korea threatens to cancel Korean War cease-fire
AP: North Korea has vowed to scrap a ceasefire with the South that has been in place since the 1950-1953 Korean War over new sanctions meant to punish Pyongyang for its latest nuclear test.
North Korea’s Korean People’s Army Supreme Command made the statement Tuesday amid reports that Washington and North Korean ally Beijing have approved a draft of punishing resolutions that is expected to be circulated among UN Security Council members this week.

Blood Moon Set To Haunt The October Sky Tonight
It may not be Halloween just yet, but when skywatchers look upon the sky tonight they’ll be haunted by a blood moon, as a total lunar eclipse that will be visible throughout much of North America is set to occur in the early morning hours on Wednesday turning the moon blood red.
The total lunar eclipse will occur when the Earth is aligned in between the sun and the moon, casting a shadow on our celestial neighbor. However, the moon won’t completely disappear from the night sky. Instead of a bright white light in the sky the moon will have a rusty red glow, the result of sunlight scattering off of Earth’s atmosphere.
Lunar eclipses can only occur during a full moon, when the moon is on the opposite side of the Earth from the sun. However, unlike full moons, lunar eclipses do not happen every month because of the moon’s orbit, which only passes into Earth’s shadow about twice a year.
