X reminisces about his past and his wrongdoings and how he “spoke to Satan” who said that the only thing X needs, is his soul (“Anima Vestra”).

The song reflects onto X and how throughout most of his life, there’s been mostly pain and sadness, as shown in the first half.

X soon learned through a series of changes, that if he stayed truthful to his selfish side, and evil, that he’d get what he craves; power and wealth.

So X spoke to the devil (most likely referring to an inner demon) and sold his soul to the devil for these cravings.

North Korea ‘explosion’ points to nuclear test

North Korea ‘explosion’ points to nuclear test

North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un has threatened ever more missile tests and had boasted this week that the firing of an intermediate-range Hwasong-12 over Japan was a mere "curtain-raiser" (AFP Photo/)

Seoul (AFP) – North Korea appeared to carry out a sixth nuclear test Sunday, with seismic monitors measuring an "explosion" of 6.3 magnitude near its main test site, sending tensions over its weapons ambitions to new heights.

The apparent test came just hours after it claimed to have developed a hydrogen bomb that could be loaded into the country’s new intercontinental ballistic missile.

The South’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement that the seismic tremor was detected near the North’s Punggye-ri test site.

United States Geological Survey recorded the magnitude at 6.3 — larger than any previous test.

Jana Pursely, a USGS geophysicist, told AFP: "It’s an explosion rather than an earthquake."

Nuclear-armed Pyongyang has long sought the means to deliver an atomic warhead to the United States, its sworn enemy.

Questions remain over whether it has successfully miniaturised its weapons, and whether it has a working H-bomb, but the official Korean Central News Agency said before the quake that leader Kim Jong-Un had inspected such a device at the Nuclear Weapons Institute.

It was a "thermonuclear weapon with super explosive power made by our own efforts and technology", KCNA cited Kim as saying, and "all components of the H-bomb were 100 percent domestically made".

Pictures showed Kim in black suit examining a metal casing, with a shape akin to a peanut shell.

North Korea triggered a new ramping up of tensions in July, when it carried out two successful tests of an ICBM, the Hwasong-14, which apparently brought much of the US mainland within range.

It has since threatened to send a salvo of rockets towards the US territory of Guam, and last week fired a missile over Japan and into the Pacific, the first time time it has ever acknowledged doing so.

US President Donald Trump has warned Pyongyang that it faces "fire and fury", and that Washington’s weapons are "locked and loaded".

Trump spoke by telephone to Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to discuss the need to "maximize pressure on North Korea" in the face of the "growing threat" it presented, according to a White House readout of the call, without specifying when it took place.

The North has repeatedly claimed that it has a thermonuclear weapon, which can be far more powerful than other nuclear devices.

When it carried out its fourth nuclear test, in January 2016, it said it was a miniaturised H-bomb, but scientists said the six-kiloton yield achieved then was far too low.

When it carried out its fifth test, in September 2016, it did not say it was a hydrogen bomb.

There was no immediate announcement from the North about Sunday’s earthquake.

Yang Moo-Jin of the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul, told AFP the latest KCNA report "carries a strategic message" that Pyongyang "will push for a nuclear face-off with the US as an equal".

Actually mounting a warhead onto a missile would amount to a significant escalation on the North’s part, as it would create a risk that it was preparing an attack.

– ‘Hundreds of kilotons’ –

The North Korean leadership says a credible nuclear deterrent is critical to the nation’s survival, claiming it is under constant threat from an aggressive United States.

It has been subjected to seven rounds of United Nations Security Council sanctions over its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes, but always insists it will continue to pursue them.

Its first nuclear test was in 2006, and successive blasts are believed to have been aimed at refining designs and reliability as well as increasing yield.

Its fifth detonation, in September last year, had a 10-kiloton yield according to Seoul — still less than the 15-kiloton US device which destroyed Hiroshima in 1945.

Atomic or "A-bombs" work on the principle of nuclear fission, where energy is released by splitting atoms of enriched uranium or plutonium encased in the warhead.

Hydrogen or H-bombs, also known as thermonuclear weapons, work on fusion and are far more powerful, with a nuclear blast taking place first to create the intense temperatures required.

In Sunday’s announcement before the earthquake, KCNA said the North’s H-bomb had "explosive power that can be adjusted from tens to hundreds of kilotons depending on the target", KCNA said Sunday, claiming technological advances "on the basis of precious successes made in the first H-bomb test".

No H-bomb has ever been used in combat, but they make up most of the world’s nuclear arsenals.

Town After Town Under Water in the 100 Miles From Houston to Beaumont – The New York Times

Town After Town Under Water in the 100 Miles From Houston to Beaumont – The New York Times

LIBERTY, Tex. — This was Highway 90, one of the main roads connecting Houston and Beaumont in eastern Texas, on Thursday.

Highway 90 on Thursday in Texas, near Liberty and Beaumont.

When we reached one flooded stretch of the highway, it seemed unsafe to press on. A state trooper reassured us that we could make it through. Beyond that? “That’s as far as I know,” he said.

Many of the people we met seemed to feel the same way. We drove through rural Texas communities to see Hurricane Harvey’s impact beyond Houston. Almost everyone we spoke with felt uncertain about what would happen next.

People spread rumors about what the water was doing each day, but no one knew for sure. The water rose and fell, appearing to follow no logic as it swallowed some roads and made others passable. And residents were left to keep track of it all.

Highway 90 is one of the main roads between Houston and Beaumont, about 100 miles to the east. Long sections of the highway were closed or flooded this week, leaving residents of dozens of small towns in the region stranded.

Floods had devastated towns all along our route. Mud and debris marked the homes and businesses where water had receded, but many buildings were still flooded.

What would normally be a two-hour drive took two days after the storm. We left Houston on Wednesday afternoon in a Chevy Tahoe S.U.V. The main highway between the two cities, Interstate 10, was closed. Almost every other route was flooded too.

We were told about a spill near the Arkema chemical plant in Crosby and tried to avoid it, but all of the roads we tried were blocked. We ended up driving past the plant and could smell the fumes. Nine hours later, while we were sleeping, two storage trailers at the plant exploded.

Throughout the region, boats were used to help residents.

We saw many scenes of solidarity. People helped one another out of the water. They shared advice, updates and supplies. Businesses remained open despite water rising to their driveways.

After we crossed a flooded part of the road, people heading the other way asked if they could make it through the water. We offered our best guesses according to the height of their vehicles. For people in sedans, the safe answer was no.

National Guard convoys, some with dozens of large trucks, rushed past us several times. Police vehicles led trucks towing fishing boats down the highway — volunteers had come from across the country to help.

Large areas of farmland in the region were swamped, like this rice farm near Devers, a few miles down the road. Farming is a critical driver of the economy in this part of Texas, with small and large fields along the highway.

As we entered Beaumont, home to nearly 120,000, the road was bustling, and businesses were open. Things were much worse across town, near the Neches River, where entire blocks were flooded. For some houses, the roofs were the only parts of the structures that were above water.

Nearly 29 inches of rain fell in Beaumont from Tuesday to Wednesday, and when we arrived the next day, the waters were still rising, and routes into the city remained flooded or closed.

Getting food and water was the most immediate concern for many residents we talked to. Lines stretched out of grocery stores, and flooding had shut down Beaumont’s water pumping stations. Federal and state agencies trucked in bottled water. As of Friday, the city was still without running water.

Alceues Jackson III, 29, said he used storm water to flush his toilet.

Back on the highway, we became stuck in a nighttime traffic jam in Nome, Tex. Traffic crawled as we waited to pass through. Families watched films in their cars. The air was warm and thick with moisture. It took three hours to drive five miles.
