Tue, 16 Jan 2018 23:14:22 -0500

(image) A group of divers has connected two underwater caverns in eastern Mexico to reveal what is believed to be the biggest flooded cave on the planet, a discovery that could help shed new light on the ancient Maya civilization. The Gran Acuifero Maya (GAM), a project dedicated to the study and preservation of the subterranean waters of the Yucatan peninsula, said the 347-km (216-mile) cave was identified after months of exploring a maze of underwater channels. Near the beach resort of Tulum, the group found that the cave system known as Sac Actun, once measured at 263 km, communicated with the 83-km Dos Ojos system, the GAM said in a statement.

Fears of serial child killer in infamous Pakistan city

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 03:44:23 -0500

Candlelight vigils were held across the country and the hashtag #JusticeForZainab trended on social media, with celebrities, opposition politicians and outraged web users demanding action.

Sweden sends leaflets to 5m homes on how to prepare for war with Russia

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 07:23:19 -0500

(image) Sweden is preparing to issue a public information manual on what to do in the event of war, as debate in the country grows over how to deal with the threat from Russia. The brochure, due to be sent to 4.7m households, will inform the public how they can take part in “total defence” during a war and secure water, food and heating. The booklet with the working title If Crisis or War Comes will also give guidance on dealing with threats from cyber attacks, terrorism and climate change, the FT reported. Russia’s annexation of Crimea and military support for Ukrainian separatists, along with increased activity and exercises near the Baltics and Scandinavia have caused deep unease in Sweden. The neutral country has begun to reverse deep post war defence cuts and incursions by Russian planes and submarines have sparked intense public debate over whether to join Nato. Sweden has seen debate over whether to join Nato Credit:  Victor Svedberg / Regeringskansliet In September 2017, the country held its biggest military exercise in 23 years, with war games involving 19,000 Swedish personnel and allies from Finland, Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, France, Norway and America. The country last year voted to reintroduce conscription. “All of society needs to be prepared for conflict, not just the military. We haven’t been using words such as total defence or high alert for 25-30 years or more. So the knowledge among citizens is very low,” said Christina Andersson, leader of the project at the Swedish civil contingencies agency.

Worst-case global warming scenarios not credible: study

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 16:04:01 -0500

(image) Earth's surface will almost certainly not warm up four or five degrees Celsius by 2100, according to a study released Wednesday which, if correct, voids worst-case UN climate change predictions. A revised calculation of how greenhouse gases drive up the planet's temperature reduces the range of possible end-of-century outcomes by more than half, researchers said in the report, published in the journal Nature. How effectively the world slashes CO2 and methane emissions, improves energy efficiency, and develops technologies to remove CO2 from the air will determine whether climate change remains manageable or unleashes a maelstrom of human misery.

Rogue ex-policeman, six others die in Venezuela forces raid

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 18:39:38 -0500

(image) By Brian Ellsworth and Eyanir Chinea CARACAS (Reuters) - Rogue Venezuelan helicopter pilot Oscar Perez was killed in a police operation on Monday along with six other anti-government militants, the interior minister said on Tuesday, spurring opposition complaints of human rights violations. Perez, a photogenic former police officer who once starred in an action film, last year used a hijacked helicopter to attack government buildings and stole weapons from a military base in what he called a rebellion against President Nicolas Maduro. Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said it was Perez who had attacked first, and that seven "terrorists" including him were killed outside Caracas, along with two police officers involved in the raid.

Thirteen siblings 'held captive' by parents in Perris, California: 'Deeply religious' couple arrested on torture charges

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 18:46:02 -0500

The American couple who allegedly tortured and imprisoned their 13 children were Elvis fanatics who believed “God called on them” to give birth so many times.  David Allen Turpin, 57, and Louise Anna Turpin, 49, were said to have forced their children to memorise passages of the Bible during “very strict” home schooling sessions.  Family members were reportedly kept away, with the children’s grandparents saying they had not seen them for around five years and an aunt saying she had not visited for 19 years.  David and Louise Turpin joined by their children - wearing matching outfits - as they renewed their wedding vows in 2015 Credit: Facebook The couple had their vows renewed by an Elvis impersonator three times, often with their children identically dressed looking on, according to photographs and footage.  The family had also filed for bankruptcy in 2011 and were said to have racked up debts of up to $500,000 despite Mr Turpin’s job as an engineer earning $140,000 a year.  Police custody images of David Allen Turpin and Louise Anna Turpin Credit: JOSE ROMERO /AFP/Getty Children lived in 'filthy' and 'foul-smelling' house The details emerged as a shocked America attempted to understand how an apparently mild-mannered middle-aged couple had allegedly committed such a heinous crime.  The pair have been charged with nine counts of torture and 10 of child endangerment after being arrested at their home in Perris, California. It followed a dramatic rescue of thirteen children aged between 2 and 29 who were discovered starving and some chained to items of furniture in the “filthy” and “foul-smelling” house.  Police only made the discovery after a 17-year-old girl fled the property through a window, stole a mobile phone and alerted officers to the children’s plight.  She was so emaciated police thought she was only 10. David Allen Turpin and his wife Louise Anna Turpin in a picture posted on Facebook Credit: Facebook On arriving at the middle-class bungalow in Perris, a town of 70,000 situated 15 miles outside Riverside, they found the children kept in dark, squalid and stench-filled conditions.  Some were shackled to their beds. Many appeared far younger than their age because of the horrific conditions they appear to have been kept in, according to officials investigating the case.  The children are now being treated for malnutrition. Mother 'perplexed' by police involvement Greg Fellows, Riverside County sheriff's captain, revealed that Mrs Turpin had appeared "perplexed" as to why police were present at her home. "The conditions were horrific," he said. The children are all believed to be the Turpins' biological offspring, authorities said. Mr Fellows said the investigation has so far found no indication of sexual abuse but that the conditions amounted to torture. "If you can imagine being a 10-year-old and being chained to a bed ... I would call that torture," he said. Mr Fellows praised the "bravery" of the teenager who managed to flee the house of horrors "through a window". "I am very saddened to report on such a heartbreaking case," he said. "Just before 6am a 17-year-old called deputies from a deactivat[...]

Fishermen dive into river moments before motorboat smashes into vessel

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 08:31:42 -0500

(image) A group of fisherman were forced to dive into a freezing cold river to escape being crushed by a motorboat bearing down on their small vessel. Bryan Maess was fishing with friends near the mouth of the Columbia River in Oregon when the motorboat crashed straight into the small boat in August last year. Footage captured on a GoPro mounted inside the fishing boat shows Mr Maess frantically waving at the boat as it approaches to get the driver’s attention. He repeatedly shouts ‘hey!’ as the vessel gets closer, while another on board is heard saying ‘oh my god’ before the trio dive into the water. Mr Maess has filed a $372,500 (£270k) lawsuit against the driver of the boat, who told police he could not see the fishing party as the dash of his boat was blocking his view, The Oregonian reports. The trip were forced to dive into the water  The fisherman suffered injuries to his ankle, leg and arms in the incident and has had vision problems and headaches since, the lawsuit says. Mr Maess claims in the suit that the boat driver, Marlin Lee Larsen, was distracted while using his mobile phone when the incident occurred. However Mr Larsen told local media the allegations were “fake news”. The 75-year-old has pleaded not guilty to criminal charges of the reckless operation of a boat, fourth-degree assault and recklessly endangering the lives of others. The case is ongoing. There are no laws prohibiting the use of a mobile phone when driving a boat in Oregon, however there are laws against operating a boat without due care. Investigators say the trio could have been killed or seriously injured if they hadn’t jumped into the water.

(image) By Mubasher Bukhari LAHORE, Pakistan (Reuters) - Pakistani authorities on Wednesday arrested a suspect in the rape and murder of a 7-year-old girl that ignited nationwide protests and outrage over allegations of government inaction, two police officials said. Police found Zainab Ansari's body in a garbage dumpster in Kasur district near the eastern city of Lahore last week, four days after she was reported missing. Residents of the area have said the murder was the 12th such incident in a year, and has fueled fears a serial rapist killer might be on the loose.

Beautiful Australian Shepherd is high as a kite and doesn't care about anything

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 10:32:12 -0500

(image) Just imagine Air Bud meets Pineapple Express. That's the current life of this Australian Shepherd.  Hank the Aussie Tanks had an eventful Sunday. Though we don't exactly know why, Hank's owner said that the poor pup was home from the vet with morphine in his system. It made for a very amused owner and a very high dog.  The pain medication left the blue-eyed dog with no sense of his surroundings and not a care in the world.  SEE ALSO: Stubborn dogs attempt to stop human disposing of Christmas tree Vet gave me morphine and turned me into a White Walker for the day #GoT #LazySunday #MorphineDrip A post shared by Hank The Tank (@hanktheaussietank) on Jan 15, 2018 at 10:01pm PST While Hank's mind is probably in a field of grass and unlimited amount of bones, his lazy Sunday only gets better.

Warnings of fallout after US freezes funding for Palestinian refugees

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 14:18:15 -0500

(image) The UN agency for Palestinian refugees warned Wednesday it faced its worst funding crisis ever after the White House froze tens of millions of dollars in contributions, a move Palestinian leaders decried as cruel and blatantly biased. The agency provides Palestinian refugees and their descendants across the Middle East with services including schools and medical care, but Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has long accused it of hostility toward Israel and called for its closure. Some five million Palestinians are eligible for its services.

Facebook selfie clue helps convict Canadian woman who killed her friend 

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 11:11:22 -0500

An incriminating clue in a Facebook selfie was used as evidence to help convict a Canadian woman who strangled her friend to death. Cheyenne Rose Antoine pleaded guilty to killing 18-year-old Brittney Gargol in March 2015 after police used clues in the Facebook post, uploaded six hours before the victim's body was found, to identify her as a suspect. Investigators found a black belt matching the one worn by Antoine in the Facebook photo near the body of her victim on the side of a road near a landfill site in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, CBC Saskatoon reports. Antoine was found guilty of manslaughter this week and sentenced to seven years in prison for strangling her friend. The pair had been drinking and were high on drugs when they got into an argument, Antoine told police. She had initially told investigators the pair were out drinking in a number of bars before her friend left with an unknown man. However police later discovered through a tip-off that Antoine had confessed to a friend she had killed Gargol and later found out she had lied to her uncle to try and cover up the killing.  Brittney Gargol was killed in 2015 Credit: Facebook The 21-year-old had also intentionally tried to obstruct the investigation by misleading detectives with a Facebook post to her friend on the night she killed her. “Where are you?” she wrote. “Haven’t heard from you. Hope you made it home safe.” Antoine, who had initially faced a second-degree murder charge, admitted responsibility for her friend’s death but said she could not remember the details of what had happened on the night. Crown prosecutor Robin Ritter said it was “quite remarkable” how police discovered the information that helped solve the case, adding: “No doubt this young women has issues...and because of those issues she is dangerous.” Jennifer Gargol, Brittney's aunt, said in an impact statement read to the court: “Most days we can't stop thinking about Brittney, what happened that night, what she must have felt fighting for her life. “You feel darkened in your own dark world...you robbed this world of someone who had a special gift.” Antoine said in a statement released through her lawyer:  “I will never forgive myself. “Nothing I say or do will ever bring her back. I am very, very sorry. It shouldn't have ever happened.” Lisa Watson, Antoine's lawyer, said it was a “tragic situation where drug and alcohol use exploded”. “My client had some very deep-seeded personal issues that she was not dealing with and unfortunately, for whatever reason, we’ll never know, they turned into a very tragic situation for all involved,” she added.[...]
