At least seven people were wounded by a man with a knife who went on a stabbing rampage in the northern Russian city of Surgut.

No one was killed in the attack in the central Siberian city, but four people were in serious condition, according to state-run Tass news agency, which cited a regional health official.

Islamic State says the man — shot dead by police — was a "soldier" of the extremist group. However, Russian authorities say psychiatric information on the assailant is being sought, suggesting they believe the claim by ISIS may be opportunistic.

President Trump will skip the annual Kennedy Center Honors this year to allow the "artists to celebrate without any political distraction," the White House said Saturday.

Three of the five artists set to be honored had either expressed a specific intent to boycott the traditional White House reception before the event or were said to be considering it.

A small number of right-wing "Free Speech Rally" demonstrators disbanded early from Boston Common after they were confronted by thousands of counterprotesters shouting anti-Nazi and anti-KKK slogans.

Deborah Becker, a reporter with member station WBUR in Boston, said that "a few dozen" rally attendees were escorted from Parkman Bandstand by police and placed into police vehicles "for their own safety."

A statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee was removed from the entrance to Duke University Chapel early Saturday by order of the university president who said in a letter that the move was not only a safety measure but also meant to express the "abiding values" of the school.

The decision to remove the statue from the Durham, N.C., campus, comes after it was defaced on Wednesday and follows violent clashes last week in Charlottesville, Va., between right-wing extremists and counterprotesters over plans to remove another statue of Lee.

Spanish authorities say they have dismantled a terror cell of mostly Moroccan natives that is believed to be responsible for vehicle attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils that killed 14 people and hurt more than 100 others.

But a manhunt continues for the alleged driver of a van used in the main attack on pedestrians on Thursday in Barcelona. Two other suspects are believed to be at large.

"The cell has been completely dismantled in Barcelona," Spanish Interior Minister Juan Ignacio Zoido said at a news conference on Saturday.

A message in a bottle washed ashore this week in Gaza.

"Hello! Thank you for picking up this bottle!" began the letter in neat black handwriting. "We are currently on holiday in Rhodes and would love to know how far this bottle got – even if it's just the next beach!"

Before any hard battle, it's common to seek a little spiritual guidance.

In preparation for the coming fight this fall to overhaul the entire federal tax code, a group of House Republicans on the Ways and Means Committee traveled this week to Rancho del Cielo — the ranch of former President Ronald Reagan, outside Santa Barbara, Calif.

The ranch is where Reagan signed one of his major tax cuts into law, and the GOP is working this month to capture some of that Reagan-era magic to deliver a modern tax bill of its own.

In the last three years, we've had El Niño, "The Blob," and when they merged, “El Blobiño!”  Those conditions led to the Wreck of the Cassin's Auklet, the Domoic Acid outbreak that wiped out the Dungeness Crab season, the collapse of the Kelp forests, and more.  On The Ecology Hour, we talk with Dr. William Sydeman of The Farallon Institute and get an update on what has happened and what we can expect going forward. 

This show aired on Tuesday August 8, and is available for streaming or download from the KZYX Jukebox.

Station News

Mendocino County Public Broadcasting celebrated Monday's partial solar eclipse with safety and style at the KZYX studio in Philo. Programmer Beth Lang, who hosts World Tour on alternate Thursday afternoons and also produces the KZYX Community Calendar, gave everyone at the station a safe viewing experience by bringing eclipse glasses and a kitchen colander, which cast a lovely array of eclipse-shaped shadows on the hood of her car. 

Welcome to the KZYX tech blog. Here I hope to provide periodic updates on the technical state of the station, inject a bit of humor now and then and maybe answer some of the more commonly asked technical questions. I hope not to be too techno-jargonish and will try to give timelines and links to more information whenever possible. Thanks, Rich Culbertson
