Charging bear attacks hunter in terrifying encounter caught on video

Wed, 24 May 2017 16:28:23 -0400

(image) A Canadian hunter is lucky to be alive after being attacked by a black bear. Richard Wesley was bow hunting near Fire River, Ontario, when he noticed a large black bear roaming nearby. At first, the bear seemed unfazed by Wesley's presence, but when the hunter makes a sound in an attempt to scare off the approaching bear, it charges. Wesley attempts to make as much noise as possible, and even punches the attacking bear in the face. The camera falls and the hunter returns just a few seconds later, visibly shook by the near death experience. "I should have shot a long time ago," Wesley says into the camera just seconds after the attack.  Luckily, the hunter walked away nearly unscathed.  "No wounds except a bruised elbow and ego where the bear threw me down," Wesley wrote on YouTube.  "Genuinely happy that this was a non fatal or tragic outcome."

Fox News retracts Seth Rich conspiracy story as Hannity vows to press on

Tue, 23 May 2017 16:19:03 -0400

(image) A controversial Fox News report about the death of a Democratic National Committee employee last summer — a story that had fueled a conspiracy theory that rocketed across right-wing media, but reportedly embarrassed some of the network’s staffers — was retracted by the network Tuesday afternoon. The report attempted to tie the death of data analyst Seth Rich — who was shot in what Washington police believe was a botched robbery attempt — to the leak of DNC emails to WikiLeaks, which began publishing them two weeks later. The implication, spelled out most directly by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, was that Rich had provided the emails and was assassinated in retaliation or as part of a coverup.

The former health minister and foreign minister received more than half the votes in the first round and then won a decisive second-round election, beating Britain's David Nabarro to the job. "It's a victory day for Ethiopia and for Africa," Ethiopia's ambassador to the U.N. in Geneva Negash Kebret Botora told Reuters before Tedros, as he is widely known, was to take the floor at the WHO's annual ministerial assembly.

The only real way to stop atrocities like the Manchester attack is to end the wars which allow extremism to grow

At the same moment that Donald Trump was condemning the suicide bomber in Manchester as “an evil loser in life”, he was adding to the chaos in which al-Qaeda and Isis have taken root and flourished. It may be a long distance between the massacre in Manchester and the wars in the Middle East, but the connection is there.

Apple designer made a $12,000 hourglass that comes with an iPhone-worthy design story

Wed, 24 May 2017 21:03:28 -0400

Design stories can be pretty silly, and that’s especially true for Samsung’s annoying smartphone design stories — here’s the most recent Galaxy S8 story. But Samsung designers aren’t the only ones that have exaggerated tales about their creations, and we’ve got one more such example for you. This time around, it comes from an Apple designer, although it doesn’t concern an Apple product. Marc Newson created a special hourglass for Hodinkee that retails for $12,000. It’s handcrafted, and it contains noisy nanoballs instead of boring sand. No, there’s absolutely no reason to buy one, even if it’s a Newson creation. The hourglass is 150mm tall and 125mm across at the widest point. It contains 1.3 million tiny copper balls that measure just 0.6mm in diameter, and measures precisely 10 minutes. But the way Newson and Hodinkee describe it makes it sound like something that’s actually worth buying/watching/enjoying. It’s not. “Sometimes you see an object, and it just captivates you. You can't look away. You can't even really explain what you're looking at either,” Hodinkee says. “Marc Newson's Hourglass is one such object. It takes the idea of one of the most basic time-measuring instruments ever devised, and pushes it to its limits.” Alright. "It is perhaps one of the most fundamental objects in the world of timekeeping, and arguably one of the oldest, but I love the fact that it is so sort of deeply esoteric, and it has this strange and mesmeric quality," Newson says in the promo video at the end of this post. "On one hand, you're witnessing time. But on the other hand, it's completely sort of timeless, and it actually if anything focuses your attention on the opposite of time, if that makes any sense." It doesn’t. And, look, the actual manufacturing of the hourglass is impressive itself. The glass object requires a certain precision, and it’s hand made, which is remarkable. It’s just Hodinkee and Newson’s design stories that are annoying. “Watching the Hourglass is a multi-sensory experience that cannot be communicated in words,” the blog post explains. “The combination of watching those first few nanoballs bounce around the bottom chamber, the flow begin to change surface patterns in the top chamber, and the unique sound of the nanoballs flying around, hitting the glass and one another as they settle at the bottom, is utterly mesmerizing. Invariably, the first time we show it to someone, there's a gasp, a big smile, and sometimes even a little giggle as they lean in and get ready to watch for the full 10 minutes.” Mkay.[...]

In first under Trump, U.S. warship challenges Beijing's claims in South China Sea

Thu, 25 May 2017 04:17:06 -0400

(image) By Idrees Ali and Phil Stewart WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. Navy warship sailed within 12 nautical miles of an artificial island built up by China in the South China Sea, U.S. officials said on Wednesday, the first such challenge to Beijing in the strategic waterway since U.S. President Donald Trump took office. The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the USS Dewey traveled close to the Mischief Reef in the Spratly Islands, among a string of islets, reefs and shoals over which China has territorial disputes with its neighbors. The so-called freedom of navigation operation, which is sure to anger China, comes as Trump is seeking Beijing's cooperation to rein in ally North Korea's nuclear and missile programs.

The projections, created by activist and artist Robin Bell, showed Mr Sessions with the infamous white hood alongside some of his past statements that have been pointed to as insensitive to racist struggles. “I thought the KKK was OK until I learned that they smoked pot,” one of the projections reads, a close approximation to a comment Mr Sessions made while investigating a case against Klansmen as a US attorney in Alabama in the 1980s.

Trump budget cuts may stir backlash in rural America

(image) President Donald Trump’s proposals to slash federal aid to the poor, the sick and people living in rural areas reflect conservatives' demands for a smaller federal government but target many of the very people who voted for him last November. In his first detailed budget submission to Congress on Tuesday, Trump requested major reductions to programs that help poor families afford groceries and poor and disabled people get healthcare. Job training for unemployed coal miners would be threatened and drug treatment programs would face cuts at a time when heroin and prescription pill addictions are tearing at rural America.

Five asteroids will cruise by Earth in the next year, and one is coming very close

Wed, 24 May 2017 17:24:21 -0400


There's so many cool things to see out in space — from gorgeous views of Jupiter to stunning glimpses of Saturn, and a star that might have aliens hanging out nearby — that it's easy to forget that it's actually a pretty hostile place. We're reminded of that whenever NASA alerts the world that an asteroid is making a close appearance, and a scientists with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory just took some time to break down the next five asteroid flybys that we should all keep our eyes on, including one that might be too close for comfort.

The handful of asteroids, which are thought to be as small as 8 meters in diameter to as large as 90 meters, will all pass within five lunar distances. One lunar distance is the space between the Earth and our moon, or about 238,900 miles. That might seem like a pretty comfortable gap, but in terms of the vastness of space, a rock jetting past our planet at such a distance is a pretty close shave.

The largest of the rocks, called "2017 BS5" is also the first to make its trip past our planet. It is expected to fly by at a distance of 3.15 lunar distances on July 23rd, 2017.

The next asteroid encounter will be the closest pass of them all, with asteroid "2012 TC4" coming within 0.15 lunar distances of Earth on October 12th, 2017. That's a distance of just over 35,000 miles, which is an extremely close pass, but the asteroid is only thought to be 12 to 27 meters in diameter, making the event slightly less worrisome.

The last three flybys will take place starting on December 3rd of this year, then again on February 24th and April 2nd of 2018. All three of those rocks are expected to pass at a more comfortable distance of between 3.69 and 4 lunar distances.

U.S. rejects talks with Hungary over higher education law

The Central European University (CEU) found itself in the eye of a political storm after Hungary's parliament passed a law last month setting tougher conditions for the awarding of licenses to foreign-based universities. The law has triggered a series of street protests - the most recent on Sunday - against Prime Minister Viktor Orban's right-wing government less than a year before a parliamentary election.
