2018-05-30    0 views
A dissident Russian journalist who was reported murdered in Kyiv dramatically reappeared alive on Wednesday, May 30, in the middle of a televised briefing about his own killing by the Ukrainian state security service.

Ukrainian authorities had said on Tuesday that Arkady Babchenko, a 41-year-old critic of President Vladimir Putin and of Russian policy in Ukraine and Syria, had been shot dead at his apartment and that his wife had found him in a pool of blood.

His reported murder touched off a war of words between Ukraine and Russia, a flurry of condemnations from European capitals and Washington, and shivers through the journalistic communities in both countries.

But on Wednesday, an emotional Babchenko appeared before reporters saying he had been part of a special Ukrainian operation to thwart a Russian attempt on his life, and that he was fine.

WELLS, Maine—A firefighter came to the rescue of a dog that somehow made its way onto a home’s roof and got stranded there.

Police in Wells, Maine, say the dog made its way through an upstairs window and onto the roof over the weekend. Police say they received several calls from worried onlookers about the pooch and one person even waited near the home until first responders arrived.

Wells Fire Department Capt. Jeff Nawfel climbed a ladder to reach the dog. Nawfel was able to coax the canine back into the home after a couple wet kisses.

No word if the troublesome pet is out of the dog house yet.

The crowd at a ballgame in California initially booed when an announcement was made that there would be no national anthem played.

The "Star-Spangled Banner" typically plays before every sports game across the United States, whether it's a professional or school-level game.

The announcement happened before a high school softball championship game at Fresno State's Margie Wright Diamond on Friday night.

After initially booing, the crowd took it upon themselves to sing the anthem.

"We came to CIF D1 section championship game between Clovis and Buchanan and the announcer said 'there will be no national anthem,'" wrote Tiffany Marquez on Facebook.

"After some booing, the whole stadium stood up and started singing it on their own."

She posted footage of the crowd singing the anthem, which has garnered more than half-a-million views and tens of thousands of reactions.

The players on the field appeared to engage as well, standing at attention on the field and facing the centerfield flag.

Vintage denim: 125-year-old Levis sell for nearly $100K-teaser
hilaryl
2018-05-27    0 views
PORTLAND, Maine—A buyer with a penchant for vintage denim has plunked down nearly $100,000 for a pair of truly vintage jeans that come from the American Old West.

The 125-year-old Levi Strauss & Co. blue jeans, which failed to sell at auction in 2016, now have a new owner somewhere in Southeast Asia.

"It's somebody who loves old Levis," said Daniel Buck Soules from Daniel Buck Auctions, who worked for 11 years on public television's "Antiques Roadshow."

The price puts it near record territory for old Levis. But the private sale agreement prevents Soules from disclosing the exact price or the buyer's location, he said. The buyer sent a representative to Maine to inspect the jeans before buying them on May 15, he said.

There's no mystery behind the jeans.

They were purchased in 1893 by Solomon Warner, a storekeeper in the Arizona Territory. Warner was a colorful character who established one of the first stores selling American dry goods in Tucson and survived being shot by Apache Indians in 1870.

The denim was produced at a mill in New Hampshire, and the jeans were manufactured by Levi's in San Francisco. Unlike modern Levis, the jeans in those days had only a single back pocket. There were no belt loops because men used suspenders back then.

The denim befits a larger-than-life character. The cotton jeans, with button fly, had a size 44 waist and 36-inch inseam, suggesting Warner was not a small man.

They'd been stored for decades in a trunk and were in pristine condition because Warner wore them only a few times before falling ill, Soules said.

Soules put the jeans up for auction in 2016, but a computer glitch botched the online bidding. Then the owner decided to go the private-sale route, he said.

There's a market for rare jeans.

A pair of 501 jeans manufactured in the 1880s sold for $60,000 to a Japanese collector, Soules said, and another pair, from 1888, sold for six figures.

Utah native Josh Holt was reunited with his family in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, May 26, after spending two years detained in Venezuela for allegedly spying and stockpiling weapons.

Josh Holt, a Mormon missionary, his Venezuelan wife Thamara Caleño and her daughter were seen embracing Holt’s parents in a video released by the office of Senator Orrin Hatch.

The 84-year-old Republican Senator for Utah was among those who advocated for Holt’s release. In an accompanying statement on his Facebook page, he said the reunion came “after two years of hard work.”

Holt returned to the United States with his wife, who he married in Venezuela in June 2016, and her daughter from a previous relationship, ABC News reported. The couple were imprisoned in Caracas on charges of terrorism and espionage, which they consistently denied. Earlier in May, Holt made a desperate Facebook plea for help after a riot at the prison where they were held.

At least eight women have accused actor Morgan Freeman of inappropriate behavior or harassment while working with them on film sets or at promotional events, CNN reported on Thursday (May 24).

CNN said it spoke with 16 people as part of its investigation into the 80-year-old actor, some of whom also alleged inappropriate behaviour by Freeman at his production company, Revelations Entertainment.

Reuters was unable to independently confirm any of the allegations.

CNN said eight people told the network they were victims of what some labelled harassment and others called inappropriate behaviour by Freeman. It said eight others told the network they witnessed the actor's alleged misconduct.

CNN also said other sources denied having seen any questionable behaviour by the actor, and that those sources described him as being professional on set and in the office.

Similar accusations have also engulfed men in U.S. politics and business, and inspired a #MeToo social media movement by victims sharing their stories of sexual harassment or abuse.

Trump-Korea summit cancellation is a setback for the world

Hours after the White House released a letter written by President Donald Trump to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un canceling the planned nuclear summit next month, Trump called the developments "a setback for North Korea and a setback for the world."

Trump said the current tough sanctions and 'maximum pressure campaign will continue' against North Korea.

Speaking in the Roosevelt Room, said he is "waiting" to see if North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will again "engage in constructive dialogue."

And he opened the door for diplomacy Thursday, saying the summit could be rescheduled.

But Trump insisted that Kim reach out, placing the blame on the North Korean leader for the collapse of negotiations.

Trump and Kim had been slated to meet June 12 in which White House officials had hoped would be a historic diplomatic breakthrough for the president.

On Tuesday, May 22, President Donald Trump said the planned Singapore summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un may not work out for June 12, adding that the date could be delayed.

Trump made the remarks at an Oval Office meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. He said he still believes that Kim is “very serious” about denuclearization.

"I do think he's serious. I think he would like to see that happen. At the same time, he's going into a future that's different from what they've had. But I think he's absolutely very serious, yes,” Trump said.

The president said that Kim would be "extremely happy" if a deal between the two leaders works out.

“North Korea has a chance, really, to be a great country. And I think they should seize the opportunity and we'll soon find out whether or not they want to do that."

Moon said the "fate and the future" of the Korean Peninsula rests on the U.S.-North Korea summit.

"We're moving along and we'll see what happens,” Trump said. “There are certain conditions that we want and I think we'll get those conditions and if we don't, we don't have the meeting. And frankly, it has a chance to be a great, great meeting for North Korea and a great meeting for the world. If it doesn't happen, maybe it'll happen later. Maybe it'll happen at a different time.”

Ancient Babylonian tablet - world's first trig table

2018-05-21    13K views
A 3,700-year-old Babylonian tablet was recently translated and might rewrite the history of math, suggesting that trigonometry may have been developed before the ancient Greeks.

The researchers said the tablet proves that the Babylonians developed trigonometry some 1,500 years prior to the Greeks.

“Our research reveals that Plimpton 322 describes the shapes of right-angle triangles using a novel kind of trigonometry based on ratios, not angles and circles,” Dr. Daniel Mansfield of the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of New South Wales Faculty of Science, said in a university news release. “It is a fascinating mathematical work that demonstrates undoubted genius. The tablet not only contains the world’s oldest trigonometric table; it is also the only completely accurate trigonometric table, because of the very different Babylonian approach to arithmetic and geometry.”

A Boeing 737 operated by state airline Cubana crashed on takeoff from Jose Marti International Airport in Havana on Friday with 104 passengers and nine crew aboard, coming to rest in a farm field where firefighters sprayed the charred fuselage with hoses. There was no immediate word on casualties.

Officials said the plane was headed to the eastern city of Holguin when it crashed between the airport in southern Havana and the nearby town of Santiago de las Vegas.

The plane lay in a field of yuca-root plants and appeared heavily damaged and burnt. Firefighters were trying to extinguish its smoldering remains. Government officials including President Miguel Diaz-Canel rushed to the site, along with a large number of emergency medical workers and ambulances. Residents of the rural area said they had seen some survivors being taken away in ambulances.

A military officer who declined to provide his name to reporters said that there appeared to have been only three survivors in critical condition, but other officials declined to confirm that figure.

The plane was rented by Cubana, which has taken many of its aging planes out of service in recent months due to mechanical problems. Cuba's First Vice-President, Salvador Valdes Mesa, met Thursday with Cubana officials to discuss improvements in its heavily criticized service.

SANTA FE, Texas—Law enforcement responded to a high school near Houston after an active shooter was reported on campus Friday, with at least one student saying she saw a man with a gun enter her classroom and start shooting as the class evacuated.

The Santa Fe school district issued an alert around 8 a.m. saying Santa Fe High School was on lockdown. Galveston County sheriff's Maj. Douglas Hudson said units were responding to reports of shots fired, but said he had no immediate details on whether anyone had been hurt.

One student told Houston television station KTRK in a telephone interview that a gunman came into her first-period art class and started shooting. The student said she saw one girl with blood on her leg as the class evacuated the room.

"We thought it was a fire drill at first but really, the teacher said, 'Start running,'" the student told the television station.

The student said she didn't get a good look at the shooter because she was running away. She said students escaped through a door at the back of the classroom.

Authorities have not yet confirmed that report. Aerial footage from the scene showed students standing in a grassy field and three life-flight helicopters landing at the school.

The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said it was responding to a shooting at the school.

The United States embassy opened in Jerusalem on Monday, May 14, marking a historic moment in America’s relationship with Israel.

In December last year, President Donald Trump delivered on a campaign promise saying he would move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel’s official capital, Jerusalem.

“Today we open the United States embassy in Jerusalem, Israel,” U.S. ambassador to Israel David Friedman said at the beginning of the inaugural ceremony, attended by a U.S. delegation from Washington and Israeli leaders.

For decades, world leaders located their embassies in Tel Aviv to assuage Palestinians.

Palestinians seek to claim East Jerusalem as the capital of a state they want to establish. Israel regards all of the city, including the eastern sector it annexed in the 1967 Six-Day War, as its “eternal and indivisible capital.”

The aftermath of a fatal attack on Paris on Saturday night (12 May).

A 29-year-old man was killed and four others are wounded by an attacker who shouted 'Allahu akbar' as he stabbed his victims.

He was then shot dead by police.

Judicial sources say the assailant was born in Russia's Chechnya region but had obtained French citizenship.

His parents are being held for questioning by police, a source said.

A government spokesperson said the attacker was categorized as a 'fiche S,' an indication used by officials to flag people who may be a threat to national security.

The Islamic State says it was behind the attack, without providing evidence.

France has been on high alert following a string of attacks over the past three years, the deadliest of which was in Paris in November 2015 when 130 people were killed on attacks targeting the city's nightlife.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) WITNESS AND WAITER, SARAH GOUSSE, SAYING:

"I was in the kitchen, I was bringing food out and then we heard gun fire, two gun shots, we didn't know if it was the police or if it was someone else and I dropped to the floor and I felt like I was there for like five minutes, and the whole restaurant, we all dropped to the floor and so the customers in the window and then we just kind of stayed on the floor for a while."

French President Emmanuel Macron said France would "not yield an inch to the enemies of freedom," praising and praised police for "neutralizing the terrorist".

Australian police find seven dead in rural town, guns seized

Australian police found seven dead people on Friday (May 11), including four children, in a rural town in the Margaret River wine-growing region, and said guns were involved in the killings.

The bodies of four children and three adults were found at or near a property in Osmington near the south-western tip of Australia, Western Australia's Commissioner of Police Chris Dawson told a news conference.

Dawson said firearms were found at the scene. He said there appeared to be gunshot wounds.

Gun crime in Australia fell sharply after strict controls were introduced in response to a mass shooting in 1996, when a lone gunman killed 35 people in Tasmania. That prompted the government to buy back or confiscate a million firearms and make it harder to buy new ones.

Australia has banned all semi-automatic rifles and all semi-automatic and pump-action shotguns, and has a restrictive system of licensing and ownership controls.

While there have been some mass killings since Port Arthur, the latest killings could prove to be the single biggest incident of gun-related deaths since 1996.
