Global News published this video item, entitled “Global National: Sept. 30, 2022 | National Day for Truth and Reconciliation honoured across Canada” – below is their description.

Special events took place in Canada’s capital to mark Canada’s second annual National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Global’s Abigail Bimman has more on the message and meaning behind this federal statutory holiday, also known as Orange Shirt Day.

Ukrainian military intelligence claims the risk of Russia using nuclear weapons is now “very high.” Today, Ukrainian President Volodymir Zelenskyy announced a move to fast-track an application for Ukrainian NATO membership. As Redmond Shannon reports, these events mark further escalation in the conflict.

In the U.S., Hurricane Ian has made its second landfall, this time in South Carolina. It’s been downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone since first hitting as a category one hurricane. But there is still major flooding and extensive damage. More than two hundred thousand people are without power and the storm is barrelling north with the threat of more high winds and powerful storm surges. Jackson Proskow is in hard-hit Fort Meyers — a once pristine place, now in shambles.

From Hurricane Fiona to Hurricane Ian, destruction has potentially historic proportions, devastating Atlantic Canada and parts of eastern U.S. Even for those spared a direct hit, the ripple effect on supply chains may still be felt. Anne Gaviola explains.

Twice a week, a healing circle is put on by the Warriors Against Violence Society. The support isn’t for victims of violence, but for the ones who offend. Heather Yourex-West explains.

Finally, a new B.C. program is designed to help Indigenous people disconnected from their communities to return home. It was created by a woman who was adopted at an early age, and wasn’t able to confirm she was indigenous until she was an adult. Neetu Garcha reports.

In meteorology, a cyclone is a large scale air mass that rotates around a strong center of low atmospheric pressure. Cyclones are characterized by inward spiraling winds that rotate about a zone of low pressure and typically bring winds, rain, high waves and storm surges to the areas they pass.

In the Atlantic and the northeastern Pacific oceans, a tropical cyclone is generally referred to as a hurricane (from the name of the ancient Central American deity of wind, Huracan), in the Indian and south Pacific oceans it is called a cyclone, and in the northwestern Pacific it is called a typhoon.

In This Story: Nuclear Weapons

A nuclear weapon (also called an atom bomb, nuke, atomic bomb, nuclear warhead, A-bomb, or nuclear bomb) is an explosive device that derives its destructive force from nuclear reactions, either fission (fission bomb) or from a combination of fission and fusion reactions (thermonuclear bomb). Both bomb types release large quantities of energy from relatively small amounts of matter.

A nuclear device no larger than traditional bombs can devastate an entire city by blast, fire, and radiation. Since they are weapons of mass destruction, the proliferation of nuclear weapons is a focus of international relations policy.
