#AceBreakingNews – After 10 months of flying in space, NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) – the world’s first planetary defense technology demonstration – successfully impacted its asteroid target on Monday, the agency’s first attempt to move an asteroid in space.

Asteroid moonlet Dimorphos as seen by the DART spacecraft 11 seconds before impact.

Mission control at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Maryland, announced the successful impact at 7:14 p.m. EDT.

As a part of NASA’s overall planetary defense strategy, DART’s impact with the asteroid Dimorphos demonstrates a viable mitigation technique for protecting the planet from an Earth-bound asteroid or comet, if one were discovered.

“At its core, DART represents an unprecedented success for planetary defense, but it is also a mission of unity with a real benefit for all humanity,” said NASA Administrator Bill Nelson. “As NASA studies the cosmos and our home planet, we’re also working to protect that home, and this international collaboration turned science fiction into science fact, demonstrating one way to protect Earth.”

DART targeted the asteroid moonlet Dimorphos, a small body just 530 feet (160 meters) in diameter. It orbits a larger, 2,560-foot (780-meter) asteroid called Didymos. Neither asteroid poses a threat to Earth.

The mission’s one-way trip confirmed NASA can successfully navigate a spacecraft to intentionally collide with an asteroid to deflect it, a technique known as kinetic impact.

The investigation team will now observe Dimorphos using ground-based telescopes to confirm that DART’s impact altered the asteroid’s orbit around Didymos. Researchers expect the impact to shorten Dimorphos’ orbit by about 1%, or roughly 10 minutes; precisely measuring how much the asteroid was deflected is one of the primary purposes of the full-scale test.

“Planetary Defense is a globally unifying effort that affects everyone living on Earth,” said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “Now we know we can aim a spacecraft with the precision needed to impact even a small body in space. Just a small change in its speed is all we need to make a significant difference in the path an asteroid travels.”

The spacecraft’s sole instrument, the Didymos Reconnaissance and Asteroid Camera for Optical navigation (DRACO), together with a sophisticated guidance, navigation and control system that works in tandem with Small-body Maneuvering Autonomous Real Time Navigation (SMART Nav) algorithms, enabled DART to identify and distinguish between the two asteroids, targeting the smaller body.

These systems guided the 1,260-pound (570-kilogram) box-shaped spacecraft through the final 56,000 miles (90,000 kilometers) of space into Dimorphos, intentionally crashing into it at roughly 14,000 miles (22,530 kilometers) per hour to slightly slow the asteroid’s orbital speed. DRACO’s final images, obtained by the spacecraft seconds before impact, revealed the surface of Dimorphos in close-up detail.

Fifteen days before impact, DART’s CubeSat companion Light Italian CubeSat for Imaging of Asteroids (LICIACube), provided by the Italian Space Agency, deployed from the spacecraft to capture images of DART’s impact and of the asteroid’s resulting cloud of ejected matter. In tandem with the images returned by DRACO, LICIACube’s images are intended to provide a view of the collision’s effects to help researchers better characterize the effectiveness of kinetic impact in deflecting an asteroid. Because LICIACube doesn’t carry a large antenna, images will be downlinked to Earth one by one in the coming weeks.

“DART’s success provides a significant addition to the essential toolbox we must have to protect Earth from a devastating impact by an asteroid,” said Lindley Johnson, NASA’s Planetary Defense Officer. “This demonstrates we are no longer powerless to prevent this type of natural disaster. Coupled with enhanced capabilities to accelerate finding the remaining hazardous asteroid population by our next Planetary Defense mission, the Near-Earth Object (NEO) Surveyor, a DART successor could provide what we need to save the day.”

With the asteroid pair within 7 million miles (11 million kilometers) of Earth, a global team is using dozens of telescopes stationed around the world and in space to observe the asteroid system. Over the coming weeks, they will characterize the ejecta produced and precisely measure Dimorphos’ orbital change to determine how effectively DART deflected the asteroid. The results will help validate and improve scientific computer models critical to predicting the effectiveness of this technique as a reliable method for asteroid deflection.

“This first-of-its-kind mission required incredible preparation and precision, and the team exceeded expectations on all counts,” said APL Director Ralph Semmel. “Beyond the truly exciting success of the technology demonstration, capabilities based on DART could one day be used to change the course of an asteroid to protect our planet and preserve life on Earth as we know it.”

Roughly four years from now, the European Space Agency’s Hera project will conduct detailed surveys of both Dimorphos and Didymos, with a particular focus on the crater left by DART’s collision and a precise measurement of Dimorphos’ mass.

Johns Hopkins APL manages the DART mission for NASA’s Planetary Defense Coordination Office as a project of the agency’s Planetary Missions Program Office.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABC NEWS: NASA successfully launches DART spacecraft into asteroid to see if it can change its course

NASA spacecraft successfully hits asteroid in test of Earth’s defences

NASA has successfully smashed a spaceship into an asteroid in an attempt to move an asteroid in space.

The Double Asteroid Redirection Test [DART] was a world-first full-scale mission to trial technology for protecting Earth from potential asteroid collisions.

But what did we learn from the mission and what happens next?

Did it work?

We know that DART smashed directly into the asteroid Dimorphos — the impact was immediately obvious with DART’s radio signal abruptly ceasing.

What’s yet to be proven is how much the collision actually shifted the moonlet’s orbital track.

It will be days or even weeks to determine how much the asteroid’s path was changed, with telescopes needed to track and verify the new orbit.

The anticipated orbital shift of 1 per cent might not sound like much, but scientists have stressed it would amount to a significant change over years.

Photos of the impact were taken by a mini satellite, which was a few minutes behind. The Italian CubeSat was released from DART two weeks ago for this purpose.

What did we learn?

As the next few months pass we’ll learn more about the impact this mission actually had on the asteroid, but DART successfully hit its target, which is humanity’s first attempt at moving another celestial body.

Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington said the mission is globally unifying.

“Now we know we can aim a spacecraft with the precision needed to impact even a small body in space,” Dr Zurbuchen said.

“Just a small change in its speed is all we need to make a significant difference in the path an asteroid travels.”

DART has demonstrated that “we are no longer powerless to prevent this type of natural disaster,” Lindley Johnson, NASA’s Planetary Defence Officer said.DART approaches asteroid Dimorphos, center, as larger asteroid Didymos fades away from view. (AP: ASI/NASA)none

How much did it cost?

NASA has put the entire cost of the DART project at $US330 million ($487.5 million).

This is well below many of the space agency’s most ambitious science missions.

Why did NASA do this?

Space engineers and planetary defence experts want to know more about how to deflect asteroids in the event that one is ever discovered on a collision course with Earth.

DART is the first full-scale mission to test this technology.

Rebecca Allen, an astronomer at Swinburne University of Technology, said the mission will help determine how much kinetic impact is needed to measurably change the orbit of an asteroid.

“What’s incredible for us astronomers, we want to know planetary defence,” Dr Allen said.

“This vending-sized machine spacecraft, will it have enough kinetic impact to drastically or really measurably change the orbit of this asteroid? That’s what we’re trying to learn.

“The location, with where it impacted is important and speed and size of the DART spacecraft are also factors there.”‘Incredible progress’ as NASA’s spacecraft crashes asteroid

What happens next?

Elena Adams, DART Mission Systems Engineer said Dimorphos will be monitored over the next few months.

“Over the next two months we’re going to see more information from the investigation team on what what period change did we actually make,” Dr Adams said.

“That’s our number two goal, number one was hit the asteroid, which we’ve done but now number two is really measure that period change and characterise how much we actually put out.”

Jonti Horner, Professor of Astrophysics and a Vice-Chancellor’s Senior Research Fellow at the University of Southern Queensland said there will be plenty to learn from this mission.

“It’s an incredible achievement, and in the weeks and months to come, we will learn a huge amount about asteroids, and about our capacity to deflect them, as a direct result of this amazing mission,” he said.

“I can’t wait to see the follow-up images from the Italian CubeSats that were flying past Dimorphos at the time of the impact.”

#AceNewsDesk – Man sentenced to 264 months to prison following HSI Phoenix, multiagency probe

PHOENIX, Ariz. – Last week a local area man was sentenced to just over 20 years in prison followed by a lifetime of probation for violating Arizona state law involving child pornography charges.

The sentencing is the result of an HSI Casa Grande and HSI Portland investigation, with assistance from the Apache Junction Police Department (AJPD) and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).

“For the next 20 years this criminal will wake-up to the clamoring noise of his jail cell doors as he is left to think about his grotesque actions involving child pornography,” said Scott Brown, special agent in charge for HSI Phoenix. “HSI and our law enforcement partners are committed to removing dangerous predators from our streets. I want to thank all of those involved in this case that resulted in such a lengthy sentence.”

On January 25, HSI and AJPD conducted a search warrant at the residence of Dale Lenz, 30, of Phoenix, who was subsequently arrested after a forensic analysis of his device revealed hundreds of Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM) files. Lenz was arrested for two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor; he pleaded guilty to both counts on July 15. Based on the severity of the images obtained, and the age of the victims in the images, Pinal County Superior Court imposed the 264-month sentence.

According to HSI special agents, in Aug. 2021, HSI Casa Grande received a collateral request from HSI Portland, Oregon regarding an individual in Pinal County, Arizona, actively engaging in the trade of CSAM via the Kik chat application. In Dec. 2021, during routine deconfliction checks, it was determined that NCMEC had sent a corresponding lead to AJPD regarding the same Kik account. HSI Casa Grande and AJPD agreed to collaborate efforts to identify the scope, suspects, and potential victims.

HSI encourages the public to report suspected child predators and any suspicious activity through its toll-free tip line at 1-866-347-2423, or by completing its online tip form. Both are staffed around the clock by investigators. From outside the United States and Canada, callers should dial 802-872-6199; hearing impaired users may call TTY 802-872-6196.

HSI takes a victim-centered approach to child exploitation investigations by working to identify, rescue and stabilize victims. HSI works in partnership with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) partners, and other federal, state, and local agencies to help solve cases and rescue sexually exploited children. Suspected child sexual exploitation or missing children may be reported to NCMEC’s toll-free 24-hour hotline, 1-800-THE-LOST.

HSI is a founding member of the Virtual Global Taskforce, an international alliance of law enforcement agencies and private industry sector partners working together to prevent and deter online child sexual abuse.

One of HSI’s top priorities is to protect the public from crimes of victimization, and HSI’s child exploitation investigations program is a central component of this mission set. Further, HSI is recognized as a global leader in this investigative discipline, and is committed to utilizing its vast authorities, international footprint and strong government and non-government partnerships to identify and rescue child victims, identify, and apprehend offenders, prevent transnational child sexual abuse, and help make the internet a safer place for children.

HSI is a directorate of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel, and finance move. HSI’s workforce of over 10,400 employees consists of more than 6,800 special agents assigned to 225 cities throughout the United States, and 86 overseas locations in 55 countries. HSI’s international presence represents DHS’s largest investigative law enforcement presence abroad and one of the largest international footprints in U.S. law enforcement.

FEATURED IRAN: Iranians Protests Continue for 10th Night Over Death of Kurdish Woman Who Was Held in Police Custody

#AceNewsDesk – Iranians took to the streets for a tenth consecutive night Sunday, in defiance of a warning from the judiciary, to protest the death of young Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini in morality police custody according to Ary News – Published: September 26, 2022

Ary News: FILE – In this photo taken by an individual not employed by the Associated Press and obtained by the AP outside Iran, protesters chant slogans during a protest over the death of a woman who was detained by the morality police, in downtown Tehran, Iran, Sept. 21, 2022. Iran’s Foreign Ministry said Sunday, Sept. 25, 2022, that it summoned Britain’s ambassador to protest what it described as a hostile atmosphere created by London-based Farsi language media outlets. The move comes amid violent unrest in Iran triggered by the death of a young woman in police custody. (AP Photo. File)

At least 41 people have died since the unrest began, mostly protesters but including members of the Islamic republic’s security forces, according to an official toll, although other sources say the real figure is higher.

Oslo-based group Iran Human Rights (IHR) on Sunday evening said the death toll was at least 57, but noted that ongoing internet blackouts were making it increasingly difficult to confirm fatalities in a context where the women-led protests have in recent nights spread to scores of cities.

Echoing a warning the previous day by President Ebrahim Raisi, judiciary chief Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejei on Sunday “emphasised the need for decisive action without leniency” against the core instigators of the “riots”, the judiciary’s Mizan Online website said.

Hundreds of demonstrators, reformist activists and journalists have been arrested amid the mostly night-time demonstrations since unrest first broke out after Amini’s death on September 16.

Amini, whose Kurdish first name was Jhina, was detained three days before that for allegedly breaching the rules that mandate tightly-fitted hijab head coverings and which ban, among other things, ripped jeans and brightly coloured clothes.

Images circulated by IHR showed protesters on the streets of Tehran, shouting “death to the dictator”, purportedly after nightfall on Sunday.

Witnesses told AFP that protests in several locations were ongoing.

– ‘Rolling blackouts’ –

Iran’s largest protests in almost three years have seen security forces fire live rounds and bird shot, rights groups charge, while protesters have hurled rocks, torched police cars and set ablaze state buildings.

Some Iranian women protesters have removed and burnt their hijabs in the rallies and cut off their hair, some dancing near large bonfires to the applause of crowds that have chanted “zan, zendegi, azadi” or “woman, life, freedom”.

The world has learnt of the violence largely through shaky mobile phone footage posted on social media, even as authorities have throttled internet access.

Web monitor NetBlocks noted “rolling blackouts” and “widespread internet platform restrictions”, with WhatsApp, Instagram and Skype having already been blocked.

This followed older bans on Facebook, Twitter, TikTok and Telegram.

Protests abroad have been held in solidarity with Iranian women in Athens, Berlin, Brussels, Istanbul, Madrid, New York and Paris, among other cities.

EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell deplored the security forces’ response to the unrest late Sunday as “disproportionate… unjustifiable and unacceptable”.

Iran — which is ruled by supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, 83, and which has been hit with tough economic sanctions over its nuclear programme — has blamed “foreign plots” for the unrest.

The foreign ministry said Sunday it had summoned Britain’s ambassador over what it described as an “invitation to riots” by Farsi-speaking media based in London, and Norway’s envoy over “unconstructive comments” made by his country’s parliament speaker.

Foreign ministry spokesman Hossein Amir-Abdollahian criticised “the US interventionist approach in the affairs of Iran… including its provocative actions in supporting the rioters”.

– Pro-government rally –

Iran has also organised large rallies in defence of the hijab and conservative values.

Pro-government rallies were held Sunday, with the main event taking place in Enghelab (Revolution) Square in central Tehran, where demonstrators voiced support for mandatory hijab laws.

“Martyrs died so that this hijab will be on our head,” said demonstrator Nafiseh, 28, adding that she was opposed to making the wearing of the hijab voluntary.

Another demonstrator, 21-year-old student Atyieh, called for “strong action against the people who are leading” the protests.

The main reformist group inside Iran, the Union of Islamic Iran People’s Party, however, has called for the repeal of the mandatory dress code.

Human rights groups based abroad have sought to shine light on the turmoil rocking Iran, citing their own sources in the country.

IHR reported on Sunday that an umbrella of Iranian teachers’ unions were calling on teachers and students to boycott classes on Monday and Wednesday in support of the protests.

Iranian authorities have yet to state the cause of death of Amini, who activists say died as a result of a blow to the head.

Interior Minister Ahmad Vahidi has said Amini was not beaten and that “we must wait for the final opinion of the medical examiner”.

#AceNewsDesk – Three baby chimpanzees who had previously been rescued from animal trafficking have been kidnapped and are being held for ransom, the founders of a rescue center in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) have said.

  • Three baby chimpanzees are being held for ransom, said founders of a primate rescue sanctuary in Africa. 
  • The ransomers threatened to decapitate the animals, said the owners. 
  • The chimps had previously been rescued from traumatic animal trafficking. 

Roxanne and Franck Chantereau, founders and heads of the Jeunes Animaux Confisqués au Katanga (JACK) sanctuary, said they received videos of the animals just over two weeks ago, The New York Times reported Friday.

The video, shared on the JACK Facebook page, showed the young primates, aged one to four years old, scampering in an undisclosed location littered with tipped-over furniture. 

One of the chimps had his arms tied above his head.

The ransomers threatened to decapitate one of the animals and sell the two others to Chinese traffickers unless a large cash sum was paid, per The Times. 

They also threatened the life of Roxanne Chantereau and her two children, the report added.

According to the Chantereaus, chimps are commonly abducted for the pet and meat trade of rare animals. They sell at high prices on the black market.

The three chimps, called Hussain, Monga, and César, were themselves rescued from trafficking. 

“They went through hell, their families were killed, they were sold, transported, and extensive financial resources were put forward to repatriate them,” said Franck Chantereau to the French outlet France Info.

For every young chimp captured, eight to 10 adults are killed by poachers, Chantereau said. That’s about 3,000 to 5,000 chimps killed every year in the DRC alone, per France Info. 

Animals that arrive at the JACK sanctuary are often addicted to alcohol or drugs, per The Times.

The Chantereaus told France Info that they have been attacked several times. But this is the first time that a primate has been held for ransom, and they have received death threats. 

An endangered pangolin was also held for ransom earlier this year in another area of the country. The two incidents have experts worried that the tactic may become widespread among criminals in the DRC, per the Times

The country, which has been cracking down on illegal animal trafficking, has launched an investigation into the ransoming, per France Info.

#AceDailyNews says here are today’s Newspaper Headlines: It is all about ‘ Mortgage Lenders ‘ pulling out of their products offered to borrowers as ‘ Bond Market ‘ that provides funding ‘ Panic ‘ at Governments Fiscal Statement and ‘ Borrowing to Fund Tax Cuts ‘ add to that ‘ Speculators Playing With Pound Falling ‘ – Secondly, Kier Starmer – Opposition Gives Speech when They Win The Election – Promising overhaul but pass experience is that ‘ Promises Are Like Pie-Crusts So Easily Broken – So its Wait & See Time – Kindness & Love XX says 🙏🙏’s to God Amen

The headline in the Financial Times reads: "Bank of England and Treasury fail to calm market nerves over UK finances"
Tuesday’s front pages are dominated by the turmoil in the markets on Monday, which saw the pound touch an all-time low against the dollar. The Financial Times says pledges by the Bank of England and the Treasury that they would work to bring both inflation and government debt under control failed to stop heavy sell-offs of sterling by investors. The paper quotes the chief economist of the Bank of Singapore warning that the UK could enter a spiral usually seen in emerging markets where “policymakers struggle to reassert credibility”.
The headline in the i reads: "New mortgages blocked amid UK market turmoil"
The i reports on the decision by several mortgage lenders – including Halifax, Virgin Money, and Skipton – to temporarily stop some or all new loans, and says others are expected to follow suit. The front page features a picture of Prime Minister Liz Truss and Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng sliced by a graph showing the continual fall in the value of the pound over recent months.
The headline in the Telegraph reads: "Spooked lenders ditch new mortgages in pound chaos"
The withdrawal of mortgages came in anticipation of a rise in interest rates to as much as 6% by midway through next year, the Telegraph reports. The paper says such a rise would add £800 to the monthly cost of a typical mortgage.
The headline in the Metro reads: "The pound Kwar-tanks".
“The pound Kwar-tanks,” reads the headline in the Metro. The paper says it wasn’t just the dollar that the pound fell against on Monday, but also the euro, the Japanese yen, and even the Russian ruble.
The headline in the Times reads: "Bank vows to step in after day of turmoil"
The Times reports on concern among Conservative ministers about the new government’s economic strategy, and quotes one warning that the party faces a “world of pain” if voters blame it for soaring mortgage costs. The paper also carries the results of a YouGov poll giving Labour a 17-point lead, its biggest in more than two decades.
The headline in the Guardian reads: "Sterling crisis deepens as Truss's strategy unravels"
Monday’s turmoil shows the markets believe that “talking tough will not be enough” and that borrowing costs will need to “rise sharply to reverse sterling’s slide”, according to the Guardian. The paper also carries a preview of Sir Keir Starmer’s keynote speech to the Labour conference on Tuesday, reporting that he will say Labour is now the “party of the centre ground”.
The headline in the Mirror reads: "Tories' economic disaster: Out of control"
The Mirror says the Tories are “out of control” and that “millions of households face further financial misery” following the crisis.
The headline in the Star reads: "Honey, I shrunk the quids"
“Honey, I shrunk the quids” is the headline in the Star. The front page brands Mr Kwarteng a “fiscal clown” and says that, just three weeks into his time as chancellor, he’s “buggered up the economy”.
The headline in the Express reads: "Don't panic! We have got a plan to cut debt"
The Express urges its readers not to panic and says the chancellor “shrugged off yesterday’s financial market jitters with a vow to lay out his plan to bring down debt”.
The headline in the Mail reads: "Fury at the city slickers betting against UK PLC"
Speculators who were able to profit from the turbulence by short selling the pound have “sparked fury”, the Mail reports. The paper quotes senior Tories criticising traders for “trying to make money out of bad news” and warning against “talking the pound down”.
The headline in the Sun reads: "Love don't Lviv here anymore"
And the Sun leads with the latest twist in the story of a Bradford man who left his partner for a Ukrainian refugee they had taken in. The paper says Tony Garnett has now split up with Sofiia Karkadym but that ex Lorna, with whom he has two children, has told friends she “wouldn’t have him back in a million years”.

Tuesday’s front pages are dominated by the turmoil in the markets on Monday, which saw the pound touch an all-time low against the dollar. 

“Out of Control” is the headline in the Mirror, next to a picture of Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng. The paper says the chancellor’s tax cuts plunged the markets into chaos and left millions of households facing further financial misery. 

The Telegraph has a front page picture of Mr Kwarteng and the Bank of England governor, Andrew Bailey, with a graph between them showing the fall in the value of the pound yesterday. The paper says “spooked lenders” are ditching new mortgages. One Conservative MP tells the paper his backbench colleagues are “petrified” at the prospect of interest rate rises.

The i reports on the decision by several mortgage lenders – including Halifax, Virgin Money, and Skipton – to temporarily stop some or all new loans, and says others are expected to follow suit. It says there are predictions of 5% deals by next week. 

The Times highlights a warning from one Conservative minister that the party faces a “world of pain” if voters blame them for soaring mortgage costs. The paper also carries the results of a YouGov poll giving Labour a 17-point lead, its biggest in more than two decades. In an editorial it saysthe government and the Bank of England face an urgent challenge to restore confidence in British economic policymaking.

Under the headline, “City slickers betting against UK PLC,” the Mail says speculators profiting from the plunging pound “sparked fury”. The paper quotes senior Tories criticising traders for “trying to make money out of bad news” and warning against “talking the pound down”. 

The Guardian says the government is struggling to prevent a full-scale loss of financial market confidence in its economic strategy. It says markets now believe that “talking tough will not be enough and that official borrowing costs will need to rise sharply to reverse sterling’s slide – a squeeze that would wipe out any boost from the chancellor’s growth push and lead to soaring mortgage rates for millions of homeowners”. In an editorial, it says the mess was “predictable” and largely down to Mr Kwarteng’s refusal to explain what he was doing.

#AceHistoryDesk – Today in History – John Chapman, born in Leominster, Massachusetts, on September 26, 1775, came to be known as “Johnny Appleseed.” Chapman earned his nickname because he planted nurseries and individual apple trees across 100,000 square miles of midwestern wilderness and prairie—resulting in settlers’ planting their own orchards.

Johnny Appleseed

The first record of Chapman’s presence in the Midwest dates to 1801 when he was known to be on the Ohio River transporting bushels of apple seeds from western Pennsylvania for his nurseries. Chapman’s first apple-tree nursery was along the Allegheny Valley in northwestern Pennsylvania; he then ventured into central and northwestern Ohio and to eastern Indiana. Chapman scouted routes that he thought pioneers would settle and planted his seedlings ahead of the new settlements.

Chapman lived in Mansfield, Ohio, for about twenty years. Years before the Homestead Act he acquired about 1,000 acres of farmland in Mansfield through a local homestead arrangement. Chapman used the land to develop apple-tree nurseries. His reputation as a conservationist, a brave frontiersman, and as an eccentric (in dress as well as mannerisms) grew, as did stories of his kindness to animals and his heroic exploits.

Chapman was an ambulant man. Each year he traveled hundreds of miles on foot—wearing clothing made from sack cloth and carrying a cooking pot that he is said to have worn like a cap. His travels took him through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois, and Indiana.

As a member of the New Church, or, Church of the New Jerusalem, (Swedenborgian), he left sections of Swedenborgian tracts at cabins that he visited and preached “God has made all things for good.”

In about 1830, Chapman also acquired land in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where he planted a nursery that produced thousands of seedling apple trees that he sold, traded, and planted elsewhere. Chapman passed away at the age of seventy. Every September, when apples are ripe, Fort Wayne hosts an annual festival to commemorate the life of Johnny Appleseed.

Legend and folklore has transformed Johnny Appleseed into a folk hero—the patron saint of horticulture.

FEATURED U.S NEWS REPORT: Catholic Bishop’s report to the Vatican shows a church split by politics

#AceNewsDesk – The results of discussions ordered by Pope Francis’ Synod on Synodality according to The Religious Service by – Published: September 23, 2022

VATICAN CITY (RNS) — Catholics in the United States are deeply divided over issues as disparate as LGBTQ inclusion, clerical sexual abuse, and celebrating the liturgy, according to a summary of consultations carried out in dioceses across the country in recent months as part of Pope Francis’ Synod on Synodality.

“Participants felt this division as a profound sense of pain and anxiety,” the U.S. bishops wrote in a summary released Monday (Sept. 19) to the public after being sent to the Vatican last month.

In 2021, Francis launched a global discussion, requiring parish churches and a host of other religious organizations to gather their congregations to talk about how they view the hierarchy and issues facing the church. The discussion would inform a summit of bishops at the Vatican scheduled for October 2023 on the topic “For a Synodal Church: Participation, Communion and Mission.”

Bishops’ conferences were tasked with collecting comments made at the parish level and sending them to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, who produced a report for the Vatican.

To collect the information from the over 66.8 million Catholics living in the United States, bishops divided the country into 15 administrative regions, including one representing the Eastern Churches. Contributions by Catholic organizations and individuals were grouped into a 16th region.

A total of 290 documents were sent to the U.S. bishops to summarize.

In a section of the document titled “Enduring wounds,” the bishops wrote that Catholics have brought divisions born in the political arena, including views on the Eucharist and the celebration of Mass, into the pews.

A controversy about whether Catholic pro-choice politicians, including President Joe Biden, should be allowed to receive Communion at Mass has fractured Catholic communities in recent years and led U.S. Bishops to launch a $28 million three-year process to “restore” and “revive” the Eucharist.

Francis’ decision last year to strongly restrict the celebration of Mass in the Old Latin Rite, which the pontiff believed had become a rallying cause for conservative dissent, has led some Catholics to lament “the level of animosity” and “feeling judged” in the church, the USCCB report said.

The polarization has also affected the church hierarchy, with the divisions among bishops — and sometimes between bishops and the pope — becoming “a source of grave scandal,” the summary stated.

“This perceived lack of unity within the hierarchy seems to, in turn, justify division at the local level,” the document said.

Connected to the topic of polarization was “marginalization.” The report emphasized calls by many Catholics for the church to become a more welcoming and open space. Two groups most marginalized, it suggested, were those who lack social or economic power and those whose lifestyle is condemned by church teaching.

Migrants, ethnic minorities, the unborn and the poor belong in the first group, according to the document, which also included women, “whose voices are frequently marginalized in the decision-making processes of the Church.”

The second group included members of the LGBTQ community and divorced and civilly remarried couples. “Concerns about how to respond to the needs of these diverse groups surfaced in every synthesis,” the document said.

The question of LGBTQ Catholics was especially troubling, with “practically all synodal consultations” stating that the lack of welcome was at least in part responsible for the hemorrhage of young people from the church. “The hope for a welcoming Church expressed itself clearly with the desire to accompany with authenticity LGBTQ+ persons and their families,” the summary stated.

American Catholics also asked for a greater involvement of lay people, again singling out women. “There was a desire for stronger leadership, discernment, and decision-making roles for women — both lay and religious — in their parishes and communities,” the report stated.

Catholic teaching forbids women from becoming deacons, priests, bishops, cardinals or popes and limits their role in the liturgy, interpreting Jesus’ and his disciples’ masculinity as sanctioning an all-male liturgy and clergy. The church also condemns homosexual acts as a sin and considers gay individuals “intrinsically disordered.”

The divisions and politics tearing at the Catholic Church in the United States occur in the context of “the still unfolding effects of the sexual abuse crisis,” the document said. “The sin and crime of sexual abuse has eroded not only trust in the hierarchy and the moral integrity of the Church, but also created a culture of fear that keeps people from entering into relationship with one another and thus from experiencing the sense of belonging and connectedness for which they yearn.”

Despite these challenges, the bishops said, Catholics shared a desire for more church activities, especially for families, to be experienced together and demanded better formation of seminarians and a greater focus on how to translate homilies into action.

The report relayed to the Vatican the “skepticism and suspicion” that hung over the synodal discussions as the process got underway. But once faithful embraced the listening spirit of the discussions, the bishops said, the meetings were embraced as a “seed of renewal” to mend the fractures in the community.

“The synodal consultations around the enduring wounds caused by the clergy sexual abuse scandal, the pandemic, polarization, and marginalization have exposed a deep hunger for healing and the strong desire for communion, community, and a sense of belonging and being united,” the bishops wrote.

The U.S. bishops’ summary, along with those of hundreds of bishops’ conferences around the world, are currently being studied at the Vatican, which will release a document in the coming weeks to guide the discussions of faith groups and organizations divided into seven “continental groups.”

#AceNewsDesk – Sean Nicholls has been reporting on state and national affairs for more than 20 years. A former news editor at the Sydney Morning Herald, he also spent seven years as NSW political editor:Defining Dutton airs tonight at 8:30 on ABC iview and ABC TV. You can catch up later on ABC iview and YouTube.

When Peter Dutton became opposition leader in May, he declared that he wanted Australians to see the “entire person” – not just the persona shaped by his reputation as a former Queensland policeman-turned-Liberal party hard man.

We thought we’d test this out and offered Mr. Dutton the chance to sit down with Four Corners for his first in-depth interview since taking the leadership………………. After several weeks of considering our request, he eventually agreed.

In this program, Peter Dutton speaks about some of the issues that shaped him and his vision for Australia. Colleagues who’ve known him for many years also offer their insights.

But I also speak to people whose lives have been directly affected by Peter Dutton’s words and actions as a powerful cabinet minister.

They present a perspective on Mr Dutton that’s very different to the one his colleagues are urging us to see.

The result is a fascinating study of a senior politician who is trying to remake a public image forged over several decades in the public eye. 

Can he succeed? Does he deserve to? That, in large part, is up to you.

I hope you’ll be watching.
