Indivisible-Flagler Nobody Is Above the Law Rally: on the night before the U.S. House of Representatives votes to impeach President Donald Trump, Flagler County community members gather at 4:30 p.m. at the intersection of US Route 100 and Seminole Woods Blvd/Town Center Blvd (near Panera & Hilton Gardens) in one of hundreds of nationwide “Nobody Is Above the Law” rallies. The mobilization is part of a massive, grassroots effort to ensure Congress holds Donald Trump accountable for using military aid to pressure Ukraine to interfere in our 2020 elections. The Palm Coast gathering will be a solemn one with a focus on defending our democracy. Those attending will hold flags, lights and signs, emphasizing the seriousness of the charges against Trump — and the threat his behavior poses to the rule of law, our constitution and way of life in the USA.

In 2100, Five of the Ten Biggest Countries in the World Will Be in Africa: “While in 2020, five out of the ten most populous countries in the world were located in Asia, the picture will look different in 2100, when five African countries – Nigeria, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Egypt and the Democratic Republic of the Congo – will be among the world’s ten largest. While some Asian countries will continue to grow, they will do so at a lower rate and will be surpassed in population by African countries exhibiting faster growth. Others, like China and Bangladesh are actually expected to shrink until 2100, mainly a result of higher standard of living and education that has already begun to lower birth rates.”
