Explosion comes after more than a dozen fissures recently opened miles to the east of the crater, spewing lava
Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano has erupted from its summit, shooting a dusty plume of ash about 30,000 feet into the sky.
Mike Poland, a geophysicist with the US Geological Survey, confirmed the explosion on Thursday. It comes after more than a dozen fissures recently opened miles to the east of the crater and spewed lava into neighborhoods.
Proportion of young people who tried cigarettes as their first drug fell over the same period, US study says
The proportion of young people using marijuana as their first drug doubled in the 10 years from 2004, a US-based study has found.
The government study reveals that among people aged between 12 and 21, the proportion of those who tried cigarettes as their first drug fell from about 21% to just under 9% between 2004 and 2014. However, the proportion who turned first to marijuana almost doubled from 4.4% to 8%.

Jane O’Sullivan of London Early Years Foundation on what the UK can learn from Australia’s failures and successes
Helen Penn warns us about the risks of the expansion of privatised childcare as the government makes contracts with more private chains to help provide accessible childcare and reduce fees for parents (Why parents should fear the privatisation of childcare, 14 May). She foresees a Carillion situation and the risk of failure which faced the Australian government in 2008, when ABC Learning, then one of the world’s largest private childcare providers, went into liquidation as a result of burdening itself with debt while chasing aggressive expansion. It cost the Australian taxpayer a lot of money to bail it out because it was too big to fail, but interestingly it provided the Australian government with an opportunity to do something different. They replaced it with Good Start, a large childcare social enterprise.
Her other comment, that only the private sector fails, is untrue, as the UK government’s strategic partner 4Children went into administration in 2016. The other suggestion, that the state will provide, is also high-risk. The state can never deliver a fair market – a live example being the inability or possible unwillingness of the current government to pay the right costs for childcare contracts.
