After the cold fall winds swirling around Hurricane Sandy pushed an enormous storm surge toward the New York and New Jersey coastlines several years ago, the ensuing damage left an indelible imprint on the public imagination. Restaurants with ocean views were battered by wild waves, homes were rent asunder, and historic lighthouses were pummeled into piles of rubble. New York City was paralyzed for days, and some 40,000 people were left homeless.The dramatic destruction garnered 24 hour media coverage, but the damage to international trade slipped more quietly under the radar. No TV cameras captured the storm waters as they swelled over the quays surrounding the Port of New York and New Jersey or as they surged through operations centers, knocking computers, power transformers, and cargo control systems off line. Scant attention was paid to the goods containers strewn like toys around the marine terminals or to the gantry cranes left inoperable by saltwater damage. For a week, container ships laden with cargo floated aimlessly in the calmed harbor while responders scrambled to repair the damage.

The summary, which is a not a ;verbatim transcript; but rather a collection of ;notes and recollections; from staffers listening to the call, comes after a whistleblower in the U.S. intelligence community filed a complaint in August regarding the leaders; conversation. According to reports, the whistleblower was concerned that Trump pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President and current Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden. Trump and others in his orbit have alleged without evidence that, while he was Vice President, Joe Biden blocked Ukrainian officials from investigating his son Hunter Biden;s business activities in the country. The Washington Post has reported that, ahead of the call, Trump told his Administration to withhold $400 million in military aid for Ukraine, which is fighting a separatist movement in the country;s east. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced Tuesday that the House would launch a formal impeachment inquiry regarding Trump 's actions. The move marked a reversal for Pelosi, who had been reluctant to embrace an impeachment inquiry despite the vociferous support of several prominent progressive Democrats. "This week, the President has admitted to asking the president of Ukraine to take actions which would benefit him politically, " Pelosi said. "The actions of the Trump presidency revealed dishonorable facts of the President 's betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of national security and betrayal of the integrity of our elections. " While a major political movement, Pelosi 's move merely put her imprimatur on an investigation that was already underway.

India's moonshot Chandrayaan 2 has been successfully manoeuvred into lunar orbit today, after nearly 30 days of space travel. This was one of the trickiest operations in the mission. A higher than expected approach velocity would have bounced off the spacecraft into deep space, while a slow approach would have led to the moon's gravity to pull Chandrayaan 2 and crash it on the lunar surface. The approach velocity had to be just right and the altitude over the moon rather precise. Even a small error would have killed the mission. The process of setting down Chandrayaan 2 on the moon is very complex since it blasted off at a velocity of 39,240 kilometres per hour, which is almost 30 times the speed at which sound travels through air. India's most ambitious space mission to date, Chandrayaan 2 had lifted off from India's spaceport at Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh on July 22. The lift off was successful in its second attempt, a week after it was aborted just under an hour from its launch due to a technical glitch. The mission stands out because of its low cost, with just about Rs. 1,000 crore spent a much smaller price tag compared to similar missions by other countries.
