Tue, 15 Aug 2017 14:17:00 -0400

Guam officials 'ecstatic' as North Korea holds off attack

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 03:48:33 -0400

(image) Guam officials were "ecstatic" Tuesday as North Korea appeared to back away from its threat to fire four missiles towards the US territory in the western Pacific. "There doesn't appear to be any indication, based on what we're hearing, that there will be any missiles attacking in the near future or in the distant future," lieutenant governor Ray Tonorio said. Guam Homeland Security adviser George Charfauros dismissed reports that satellite images showed North Korea moving a missile into place for a possible launch, saying it was likely "just a ruse".

Charlottesville: Donald Trump quietly slashed funds to groups fighting white supremacy months ago

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 08:35:11 -0400

(image) Donald Trump's decision to slash funding to counter right-wing extremism in the US is facing fresh scrutiny in the wake of the Charlottesville violence that left three people dead. The US President froze $10 million (£7.7m) of grants destined to fight violent extremism in the US back in May. More than 30 organisations had been pegged by former President Barack Obama’s office to receive the funding, but the White House put the grants on hold pending review soon after Mr Trump took office.

'It still fits': Engagement ring missing for more than a decade turns up on garden carrot

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 06:46:47 -0400

(image) A woman who was resigned to never seeing her beautiful engagement ring ever again - and had bought a smaller one as a replacement - was shocked when her daughter-in-law found it on a carrot. The family had harvested some carrots from their farm in Alberta, Canada, for dinner, and one had grown around the engagement ring, which was then pulled from the ground. Mary Grams, 84, had lost her beloved ring in 2004 while she was in the garden, and thought she would never see it again. "I recognized it right away," she said. Mary Grams, 84, got her missing ring back when her daughter-in-law found it while harvesting carrots on the family farm in Alberta, Canada. Credit:  CBC News She thinks she lost it while pulling a large weed from the garden. "We looked high and low on our hands and knees," she told CBC news.  "We couldn't find it. I thought for sure either they rototilled it or something happened to it." Mrs Grams has had the ring since 1951, a year before she married her husband, Norman.  Mary, 84, says she didn't know if they were kidding or not, but when her granddaughter brought the carrot over - she knew: "It's mine!" #yegpic.twitter.com/Ft7IMUeSMR— Sarah Kraus Global (@SarahNKraus) August 15, 2017 The ring was found by her daughter-in-law, Colleen Daley. "I knew it had to belong to either grandma or my mother-in-law," she said, "because no other women have lived on that farm. "I asked my husband if he recognized the ring. And he said yeah. His mother had lost her engagement ring years ago in the garden and never found it again. And it turned up on this carrot." A few weeks after losing her engagement ring, Mary bought herself this one, much smaller, to replace it. #Camrosepic.twitter.com/sg9WN4y1Pb— Sarah Kraus Global (@SarahNKraus) August 15, 2017  Mrs Grams said she is pleased the ring was found. "I'm going to wear it because it still fits," she said.

Body language experts analyse whether Trump meant it when he condemned white supremacist groups

On Monday, under mounting media pressure, Mr Trump took to the podium to call out white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and the KKK. Three days earlier, a hundred of them had descended on Charlottesville, Virginia, in protests that lead to three deaths and dozens of injuries.

Mischievous pup who found the wrong side of the law is still a very good dog

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 10:38:22 -0400

Maybe not arrested and thrown in the back of a police car kind of trouble, but they can be pretty sneaky.

A very nice policeman brought him back in the only way he could — in the back of his cop car. Reddit user Ayayoska posted a photo of the extremely cute incident.

Glass of wine or beer a day reduces risk of an early death, says new study

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 14:00:00 -0400

A glass of wine or pint of beer a day can help people to live longer, according to new research. The study suggests that light-to-moderate alcohol consumption - classed as less than 14 drinks a week for men, and seven for women - may have "protective" health effects and can reduce the risk of dying young. Experts said the findings show that for most older people, the overall benefits of light drinking "clearly outweigh" the possible cancer risk. Victoria Moore's summer wine guide: 35 best whites, reds and fizz Heavy drinking has been linked to a host of health issues - including heart disease, but alcohol in moderation is widely recommended. But, despite these recommendations, previous studies of the risk of dying among light-to-moderate drinkers were inconsistent in their findings. For the new study, researchers examined the association between alcohol consumption and risk of mortality from all causes, cancer and cardiovascular disease in the United States. They studied data from 333,247 participants obtained through the National Health Interview Surveys from 1997 to 2009. The study participants were surveyed regarding their drinking and patterns of use. Glossary | Beer terms defined They were divided into six groups, based on their drinking patterns: lifetime abstainers, lifetime infrequent drinkers, former drinkers and current light (less than three drinks per week), moderate (more than three drinks per week to less than 14 drinks per week for men or less than seven drinks per week for women) or heavy drinkers - more than 14 drinks per week for men or seven per week for women. Study lead author Doctor Bo Xi, associate professor at Shandong University School of Public Health in China, said: "Our research shows that light-to-moderate drinking might have some protective effects against cardiovascular disease, while heavy drinking can lead to death. "A delicate balance exists between the beneficial and detrimental effects of alcohol consumption, which should be stressed to consumers and patients." The best beer gardens in London Throughout the length of the study, 34,754 participants died from all-causes. Of those, 8,947 deathss were cardiovascular disease-specific, and 8,427 mortalities were cancer-specific. Researchers found that male heavy drinkers had a 25 per cent increased risk of mortality due to all-causes and a 67 per cent increase in mortality from cancer. The increases were not significantly noticed in women. There was no association found between heavy drinking and cardiovascular disease mortality. Moderate drinking was associated with a 13 per cent and 25 per cent decreased risk of all-cause mortality, and 21 per cent and 34 per cent decreased risk of cardiovascular disease mortality, respectively, in both men and women. Similar findings were observed for light drinking in both genders. Study co-author Doctor Sreenivas Veeranki, assistant professor in preventive medicine and community health at University of Texas Medical Branch, said: "We have taken rigorous statistical approaches to address issues reported in earlier studies such as abstainer bias, sick quitter phenomenon and limited confounding adjustment in our study. "A J-shaped relationship exists between alcohol consumption an[...]

(image) Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday he hoped that Iran would not quit the agreement Iran reached in 2015 with world powers to curb Tehran's nuclear work in return for the lifting of most sanctions. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said this week that Iran could abandon the deal "within hours" if the United States imposed any more new sanctions.. Lavrov also said he hoped the United States would not violate its obligations under the nuclear deal with Iran. "I think unilateral sanctions ... are irresponsible actions that can hurt and undermine the balance achieved," Lavrov said, commenting on new restrictions recently imposed by Washington on Iran.

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 04:18:11 -0400

(image) Philippine police killed 32 people in "shock and awe" raids aimed at scaring drug traffickers, authorities said Wednesday, after President Rodrigo Duterte admitted to setbacks in his controversial crime war. In one of the deadliest operations of the war, police reported killing 32 people in a series of raids Monday on suspected drug traffickers across Bulacan province, which neighbours the capital of Manila. "We wanted to shock and awe these drug personalities," Romeo Caramat, the Bulacan police chief, told reporters in Manila on Wednesday, adding 109 suspects had also been arrested.

T-Mobile just took a huge step towards beating Verizon once and for all

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 09:00:42 -0400

This April, T-Mobile spent $8 billion on new low-band spectrum to improve its wireless network. As of right now, that network is online. A "cluster site" in Cheyenne, Wyoming, is the first place in the country to be lit up with T-Mobile's 600MHz LTE network. Neville Ray, T-Mobile's Chief Technology Officer, described the rollout as a "massive milestone" for T-Mobile, and one that should "materially close" T-Mobile's existing coverage gap with Verizon "by the end of the year." To call it a "massive milestone" is really an understatement. Normally, rolling out new spectrum takes years. Verizon, for example, bought 700MHz spectrum from the FCC in a similar auction in 2008, and didn't turn the network on until 2010. Ray said that "the FCC only granted the licenses in June, so to have the network online by August...is much faster than anyone expected." 600MHz spectrum is going to be a big deal for T-Mobile as it should finally fix the network's coverage problems. Cell networks operate across dozens of different "bands," and broadly speaking, the lower the frequency, the better the coverage. Lower-frequency radio waves travel further and penetrate objects better, which in the real world means superior coverage in rural areas and inside buildings -- everywhere that Verizon's network, thanks to a wealth of low-band spectrum, currently excels. The site in Wyoming that's live today is the first of many that should go live by the end of the year. The map above (from a FCC filing) shows where T-Mobile is planning on building out coverage to in 2017, and that includes 600MHz sites in Wyoming, Northwest Oregon, West Texas, Southwest Kansas, the Oklahoma panhandle, Western North Dakota, Maine, Coastal North Carolina, Central Pennsylvania, Central Virginia and Eastern Washington. Rolling out 600MHz is particularly challenging because in most cases, there are TV stations using the spectrum right now. Those stations are moving to different frequencies, and T-Mobile is paying out of its own pocket to accelerate the process. Unfortunately, all that doesn't mean that T-Mobile's customers are going to have fantastic service overnight. 600MHz isn't a frequency that's been used for LTE anywhere in the world before, so no current devices support it. Ray confirmed that "Samsung and LG will have phones in stores by the end of the year" that support 600MHz, and also said that "as T-Mobile gets more partners and devices, there will be a tidal wave of [600MHz compatible devices] in 2018." He also stressed that T-Mobile is putting" as much, if not more effort into devices than the network," but "the network has to come first." In other words: it's an exciting time to be a T-Mobile customer. Everywhere that T-Mobile's 600MHz network will reach within a few years   600MHz isn't the only place that T-Mobile is wor[...]

Donald Trump’s teleprompter is back from vacation to denounce racism

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 14:17:02 -0400

After a weekend of violence in Charlottesville prompted by rallying white supremacists, President Donald Trump went on camera Monday to... read off a teleprompter. Trump isn't known for his extemporaneous speaking (or tweeting) skills. On Saturday his lukewarm tweet condemning violence in Charlottesville from "many sides" was swiftly and strongly critiqued for its failure to address white supremacist ideology, the KKK and neo-Nazis directly. SEE ALSO: You can honor Heather Heyer and other Charlottesville heroes starting today So, on Monday, Trump gave a statement from the White House, this time reading prepared remarks directly from a teleprompter which, after three days of silence on racism, struck many as too little, too late. Trump has a famously tenuous relationship with the teleprompter. Though he frequently criticized Hillary Clinton for her use of them during the 2016 campaign, he has since made use of it himself, which is par for the presidential course. But when it takes you three days and a prepared script to say, "the KKK is bad," you might have a problem.  It's also a bold reversal for a man who, per CNN, said at a 2015 rally: "I've always said, if you run for president, you shouldn't be allowed to use teleprompters ... Because you don't even know if the guy's smart." Take from that what you will. Naturally, Trump's ability to read on command has left Twitter unimpressed. so it appears trump read a teleprompter statement, with no ad-libs. takes no questions & ignores shouted ones as he leaves. — kelly cohen (@politiCOHEN_) August 14, 2017 He literally cannot deliver this without a teleprompter. Sad! https://t.co/b48PW9xl3n — Soledad O'Brien (@soledadobrien) August 14, 2017 I hate when Trump throws in his really obvious ad-libs when he's reading the teleprompter. "so sad," "I know," "it's about time" — built to shrill (@theshrillest) August 14, 2017 He can't even read the teleprompter normally. These words are killing him. And no you haven't said anything about the color of skin. — ProfB (@AntheaButler) August 14, 2017 Trump looks like a hostage reading the teleprompter. We don't believe you, you need more people. — Britni Danielle (@BritniDWrites) August 14, 2017 "please, sir, for the love of god, read the teleprompter and walk away, no improv" — every aide — ಠ_ಠ (@MikeIsaac) August 14, 2017 Its striking that he has to carefully read it off a teleprompter. He railed against prompters yet he can't speak from the heart about racism https://t.co/olP7gXjR80 — Katy Tur (@KatyTurNBC) August 14, 2017 Renouncing racism off a teleprompter 72 hours too late, after endless prodding, kinda just proves that you're both a racist and a wimp, no? — Ben Reininga (@BenReininga) August 14, 2017 It felt like @realDonaldTrump read the TelePrompTe[...]

Japanese siblings accept WWII soldier's flag from US veteran

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 02:15:31 -0400

(image) HIGASHISHIRAKAWA, Japan (AP) — The former U.S. Marine knew the calligraphy-covered flag he took from a fallen Japanese soldier 73 years ago was more than a keepsake of World War II. When Marvin Strombo finally handed the flag back to Sadao Yasue's younger brother and sisters Tuesday, he understood what it really meant to them.
