One – Human Interest

A strong earthquake struck central Italy in the early hours of Wednesday, causing buildings to collapse “with reports of victims” and sending panicked residents fleeing into the streets of numerous towns and cities.

The U.S. Geological Survey said it was a 6.2 magnitude quake that hit near the town of Norcia, in the region of Umbria, at 3.36 a.m. (0136 GMT).

The mayor of the small town of Amatrice reported extensive damage. “Half the town is gone,” Sergio Pirozzi told RAI state television. “There are people under the rubble… There’s been a landslide and a bridge might collapse.”

Save Christian Mom Asia Bibi from Execution

A Christian mom has been sentenced to death in Pakistan for her faith.

Asia Bibi was falsely accused of “blasphemy” – speaking against the prophet Muhammad.

Now this wife and mother of five will hang for her Christian faith.

She would be the first woman executed under Pakistan’s Shariah blasphemy law.

This is the ultimate human rights violation.

We’re mobilizing our international affiliate – the European Centre for Law and Justice – and its partner in Pakistan to stop this atrocity.

Add your name to our letter to the government of Pakistan demanding Asia Bibi’s freedom.

Two – Health

New Tech for Migraine Pain

Technology is opening up a new route to much-needed headache helpers. “Current drugs just don’t do the trick for many people,” says John Delfino, MD, a headache specialist at NYU Langone Medical Center. But the FDA recently approved two gadgets for migraines: Cefaly, a band that’s worn across your forehead for 20 minutes daily, and SpringTMS, a device you hold to the back of your head at the onset of pain. Both work by stimulating certain nerves deep in the head, using electrical signals (in the case of Cefaly) or magnetic energy (for the SpringTMS). There’s also new hope for debilitating cluster headaches in the form of an electrode that’s implanted behind the jaw and controlled by a remote. In the initial trial, 68% reported relief when they turned on the electrode during a headache, and of that group, over 80% had fewer episodes.

Five – Foundation

But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up. Since all these things are to be destroyed in this way, what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat! But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.”

2 Peter 3:10-13 (NASB)
