By the time Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman left the House Ways and Means Committee hearing room on Tuesday, it was clear that Republicans were not pleased with what the 44-year-old combat veteran had to say when he testified during the first of two sessions on Tuesday, the third day of impeachment hearings before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.They didn't like that Lt Col Vindman, a Ukraine expert detailed to the National Security Council, had worn his Army dress uniform when he raised his right hand to swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, and they certainly weren't pleased with how he then proceeded to speak calmly and authoritatively about the concerns he had with what President Donald Trump said during his so-called "perfect" phone call with Volodymyr Zelensky, the president of Ukraine.

When tour guide Thorolfur Sævar Sæmundsson brings a group to Iceland’s iconic Reynisfjara Beach, he warns them not to go down to the shoreline.His reason? The beach is well known for having a dangerous undertow and so-called “sneaker waves,” which can catch people by surprise. Several tourists have died there over the past decade or so, Iceland Monitor reported.On November 11, a dramatic illustration of the dangers of the waves at the beach was observed, from a safe distance, by Sæmundsson, who recorded video of tourists floundering after being caught out.Emergency services were called to the scene to assess a tourist who was knocked over and injured, the Icelandic news site Visir said.While the beach is safe “95% of the time,” Sæmundsson told Storyful, “sometimes we have high waves. People need to be careful.” Credit: Thorolfur Saevar Saemundsson via Storyful
