Kilauea volcano erupts on Hawaii’s Big Island
A lava flow in Hawaii has entered the property of a geothermal power plant on the Big island.

The Hawaii Volcano Observatory announced the development on Sunday morning. It gave no details as to how deep into the Puna Geothermal Venture lava has intruded.

Officials previously moved 50,000 gallons of potentially toxic gas offsite and capped the wells on the property to prevent releases of additional gas if lava enters the wells.

Lava-filled fissures have opened up across the southeastern side of the Big Island over the past three weeks as the Kilauea volcano has become more active. (AP)

Summer in the city — New York City’s parks in 1978
These fascinating photographs offer a colorful glimpse into the history of New York City’s parks, after nearly 3,000 slides were discovered while an official was cleaning out an office.

Forty years ago, New York City’s newspapers went on strike for nearly three months. Parks Commissioner Gordon Davis hired eight temporarily out-of-work New York Times photographers — Neal Boenzi, Joyce Dopkeen, D. Gorton, Eddie Hausner, Paul Hosefros, Robert Klein, Larry Morris and Gary Settle — to document the city’s parks.

Sixty-five of those images, capturing scenes across the city between August and November 1978, are currently on display at an exhibition dedicated to the find.

Jonathan Kuhn, director of art and antiquities for the New York City Parks Department, said: “I first learned of the slides in mid-October of 2017 and immediately decided to do an exhibition.

"The show is not just about nostalgia. What differentiated these images were that they were from a very condensed period of time.

"I’m interested in the use of parks and bringing people together.

"They show that parks will never be irrelevant.” (Caters News/New York City Parks Dept.)

“1978: The NYC Parks/New York Times Photo Project” exhibition is on view at the Arsenal Gallery in Central Park until June 14.

Hero teacher saved lives during Indiana school shooting
President Donald Trump is praising the suburban Indianapolis science teacher who stopped a shooting inside his classroom.

Trump sent a tweet Saturday saying: “Thanks to very brave Teacher & Hero Jason Seaman of Noblesville, Indiana, for his heroic act in saving so many precious young lives. His quick and automatic action is being talked about all over the world!”

One of Seaman’s seventh-grade students at Noblesville West Middle School says another student entered the classroom with a gun and started shooting Friday morning. He says his 29-year-old teacher immediately ran at the student, “swatted a gun out of his hand and tackled him to the ground.”

Seaman was shot but is in good condition at a local hospital. A female student was also shot. Her family says she’s hospitalized in critical but stable condition.  (AP)
