The as-yet undetermined species of whale is estimated to be around 20 meters (66 feet) long and weigh about 40 tons, according to the Nine News report, and has attracted visitors since it became lodged on rocks near Wattamolla Beach on Sept. 17.
Whale welfare group ORRCA confirmed the whale was male but has not yet confirmed the species, according to the report.
The carcass washed up onto the beach on Sept. 24.
Sharks have been feeding off the dead whale for some time, as video taken on Sept. 20 by Benjamin Reid shows.
In the footage, great white sharks can be seen violently splashing near the carcass as they feed.
Shaun Elwood of the National Parks and Wildlife Service speculated on the whale’s cause of death.
“It could be sick, it could not have been in well health, it could have been an old whale, or it could have been hit by a boat. It’s really an unknown,” said Elwood, in the Nine News report.
Two local brothers Jai and Kurt Kiggins also captured video as Jai swam in shark-infested waters.
“Probably one of the craziest things I’ve ever seen. The great white came straight up, like face to face, and then turned and kicked away,” said Kiggins.
“Look, it’s stupid,” said Elwood. “New South Wales Police, New South Wales Maritime, and National Parks and Wildlife Service, we really discourage the public from doing anything like that.”
Jai Kiggins dismissed suggestions his actions were foolhardy.
“I’ve you got the [expletive] to do it,” Kiggins said, “I don’t see why not.”
Kurt Kiggins, the one filming the incident, said that when their mother learned of their intentions, she expressed opposition.
“My mom wasn’t very happy about it, because when I left I told her I was going to do it, so she was stressing out all day,” said Kurt Kiggins.
Officials from the NSW Environment Office were considering whether to tow the whale back out to sea, Nine News reported.
A spokesperson said the whale’s size, as well as the beach’s location, meant disposal options were limited.
First responders on Saturday, Sept. 22, came across a mass of fish carcasses strewn across a portion of the Interstate 40 near Wallace, North Carolina, exposed by falling water levels a week after the hurricane-turned-storm made landfall and sparked massive flooding.
"Well, we can add 'washing fish off of the interstate' to the long list of interesting things firefighters get to experience!" the Penderlea Fire Department said in a Facebook post.
Staffers at MAGMA Indonesia (Multiplatform Application for Geohazard Mitigation and Assessment in Indonesia) noted in a statement that Mount Anak Krakatau—or “Child of Krakatoa”—erupted 56 times between Sept. 21-22, spewing lava and ejecting dark smoke.
“Crater smoke is thin white to gray, with a thin to thick intensity, reaching a height of 1000 meters (3280 ft). A total of 56 eruptions with a height of 200-300 m (656-985 ft) have been observed, along with black smoke. Night-time footage from CCTV recorded firelights and incandescent flow.”
Thunder sounds and weak tremors accompanied the eruption, MAGMA Indonesia stated, adding that “people / tourists are not allowed to approach the crater within a 2 km (1.2 mile) radius of the crater.”
Reuters aboard the Japanese helicopter carrier JS Kaga encountered the volcano, known for its deadly 1883 eruption, after the ship's departure from Indonesia’s capital Jakarta.
They captured one of Anak Krakatau’s eruptions on camera on Saturday, Sept. 22, as it catapulted into the air blobs of molten lava.
Observers at the Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (CVGHM) said in a Volcano Observatory Notice for Aviation (VONA) that the volcano posed a level II (CAUTION) threat.
“Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE, Eruption with ash clouds at 22:48 UTC (05:48 local time). The eruption lasted for 115 seconds. Eruption and ash emission is continuing. Ash-cloud moving to south. Best estimate of ash-cloud top is around 1722 FT (538 M) above sea level, may be higher than what can be observed clearly. Source of height data: ground observer.”
The eruption has not caused any disruptions to flights.
Indonesia’s National Agency for Disaster Countermeasure (BNPB) said in context of a previous Krakatau eruption that “this is an opportunity for volcano tourism and education, not all countries have volcanoes, Indonesia has 127 active volcanoes or 13% of active volcanoes in the world are in Indonesia.”
MAGMA Indonesia said that Anak Krakatau has experienced an increase in volcanic activity since June 18, 2018.
Deputies said they responded to a call that a man had stolen alcohol from a Piggly Wiggly store in the town Campbellsport, Fond du Lac county.
Store manager Kevin Harvey told WDJT-CBS reporters that he recognized a man placing bottles of booze into a cart at the Piggly Wiggly as the same individual that had previously stolen alcohol there on four occasions.
Surveillance video reportedly captured the suspect on Tuesday, Sept. 18, as he swiped three bottles of Jagermeister.
Harvey chased the man out of the store, it was reported, but the suspect leapt into a getaway car driven by John Wilson, and fled.
Police chased the getaway vehicle, and the suspect rolled out at some point during the pursuit.
Wilson stopped the car after evading the police for about three miles, ran into a cornfield and hid.
Deputies established a perimeter.
Campbellsport Police Department Chief Thomas Dronbrook said the mosquitoes were out in full force.
"As soon as the sheriff's department arrived that's the first thing I asked for, if he could give me some spray because it was crazy," Dornbrook said.
Within an hour, Wilson emerged from hiding with his hands up.
"When we handcuffed him he asked us to wipe his forehead because he had 15-20 mosquitoes on his forehead at that time," the chief said.
While normally frustrating, itchy, any annoying painful; these mosquitoes ended up being a great crime solving sidekick.
“I tease Sergeant Zitlow, he along with a million mosquitoes helped capture the guy," said Dornbrook, according to CBS.
Wilson faces charges that include evading the police, and obstructing an officer of the law.
Fans captured footage of the air ambulance as it came in for a landing on the field on Sept. 22 at the Oakwell stadium in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England.
The game between Barnsley and Burton Albion, two British football teams, had been due to kick off at 3 p.m., but was cancelled.
Nigel Clough, manager for Burton Albion, said "when it was announced the game was called off all the crowd were applauding respectfully as they realize it's the right decision.”
Stephen Croft suffered a heart attack prior to kick-off and emergency medical services were called in. Air ambulance crewmembers loaded Croft onto a stretcher and transported him to Sheffield Norther General Hospital.
Customer Pours Iced Coffee on 7-11 Store Counter in Dispute Over Cost tom.ozimek 2018-09-2122K views Police in Suffolk County appealed to the public for help to identify a woman who poured iced coffee over a counter at a 7-Eleven store in Mastic, New York, in a dispute over the price of the drink. Suffolk County Police shared footage of the incident, which they said occurred at a 7-Eleven store on Montauk Highway on August 30. The woman can be seen arguing with store clerks before throwing the liquid on the counter and walking out of the store.
The coffee damaged approximately $200 worth of cigarettes stored under the counter and the woman was wanted on suspicion of criminal mischief, police said.
Georgia Police Seize Drugs Disguised as Candy tom.ozimek 2018-09-2127 views Duluth Police seized what drug agents estimate could be $10,000 to $15,000 worth of ecstasy pills that look like candy for children, and are concerned the dealers marketed and sold the drugs to local youth.
McGregor repeatedly referenced the infamous April incident when he threw a metal dolly through the window of a bus carrying Nurmagomedov and other UFC fighters, leading to his arrest and eventual guilty plea.
During the staredown, Abdelaziz obviously said something that wasn't to McGregor's liking. Naturally, he responded in typically considered and rational fashion.
"Shut your mouth, Ali Abdelaziz," he said.
"You terrorist snitch! I know a lot about you as well, you mad man. I know a lot about you as well!
Representatives of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation released video of the child transfer, which took place at an airport in the city of Omsk, according to local media reports. Security cameras captured the moment the little baby was given away.
The 25-year-old mother can be seen in the video holding the baby, who is wrapped in a bright pink blanket. She is accompanied by an unidentified woman carrying a red or pink bag. The companion at one point makes contact with a woman, while the mother walks over to the side.
On Sunday, September 9, Brisbane man Hoani Hearne was the first unlucky consumer to report a sabotaged berry. He accidentally swallowed a fragment of needle after eating a strawberry and was forced to visit the emergency room experiencing severe abdominal pain.
On Tuesday, September 11, a woman in Gladstone contacted police after her 9-year-old son bit into a needle embedded in a strawberry.
Police addressed media on Wednesday, September 12, saying they believed the berries originated from one grower in southeast Queensland, affecting only two brands. There were suspicions the needles had been planted by a disgruntled ex-employee.
After a growing number of cases were reported across New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland, police said they believed copycat crimes were taking place, causing six brands to be affected. Farmers were reportedly devastated to take such a huge hit to sales at an already difficult time of year.
In these videos and images, Chantal Faugeras crushes ‘Delightful’ brand strawberries purchased from a Coles in Wingham, New South Wales, finding needles within.

A man identified only by his first name Diego (@diamoarr) shared the video filmed by his sister @cilladiamond on Sept. 19, which shows JCB operator Graham Heanue maneuvering the backhoe into place as the roof of Renvyle’s Castle House B&B heaves and buckles in the heavy winds.
“Neighbours to the rescue, managed to prevent the roof from blowing off and onto a busy street where it would have surely caused accidents and injuries,” Diego captioned the post.
The Boeing 737 aircraft, which was carrying 166 passengers, landed safely. At least 30 passengers suffered ear and nose bleeds, NDTV reported.
Passengers on board Jet Airways flight 9W 697 from Mumbai to Jaipur captured video of the incident, showing frantic passengers and oxygen masks dangling from the ceiling.
An official with the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) told CNN affiliate CNN News 18 that the crew allegedly forgot to press a button to pressurize the cabin. "During the climb, the crew forgot to select the bleed switch due to which cabin pressurization could not be maintained, and oxygen masks got deployed," the official said.
Jet Airways said in a statement that Thursday morning's flight had turned back "due to loss in cabin pressure" and "regretted" the inconvenience caused to its passengers.
"The B737 aircraft, with 166 guests and 5 crew landed normally in Mumbai. All guests were deplaned safely and taken to the terminal. First aid was administered to few guests who complained of ear pain, bleeding nose etc," the statement said. Jet Airways also said the cockpit crew has been taken off duty and that an investigation had been launched into the incident.
Passenger Darshak Hathi tweeted a video of the interior of the cabin as air pressure dropped and oxygen masks came down.
No civilian casualties were reported and a property damage assessment is underway. Flying training has been suspended, pending an investigation.
A student pilot and instructor of the Wing T-6A Texan II aircraft were captured on video around 4 p.m. local time on Tuesday as they parachuted to safety.
The Air Education and Training Command (AETC), which oversees the operations of the Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph (JBSA), issued a media release immediately following the incident.
"The crew ejected and is safe with minor injuries reported at the site. Both were transported to the Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph Medical Clinic for evaluation," the AETC stated. "There were no civilian casualties, and the extent of damage to property has not been assessed."
Keith Benning, who works with the North Dakota-based Turtle Mountain Animal Rescue, filmed a number of dogs that had been left stranded on things like picnic tables, a car, and inside a house. Benning said on Sept. 18 that he had rescued "about 10 dogs so far.”
"All of the 10+ dogs that were rescued yesterday by Keith Benning and his rescue partners John NeeSmith and Marshall Furr are safe. They are being held in a staging area," the non-profit stated in a Facebook post.
The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office (YCSO) said a member of its “Volunteers in Protection” (VIP) program was at a gas station in Ash Fork, Arizona, on Sept. 8, when he noticed a tractor-trailer pulling out with a dog attached to its bumper.
Dashcam footage shows the semi heading in the direction of an interstate highway.
The volunteer immediately switched on his lights, the YCSO said, and drove over towards the cab of the truck to alert the driver that his dog was trailing behind.
The agency said the semi driver was distracted and had forgotten to untie the dog’s leash and take the animal into the cab with him.
“A very grateful owner retrieved his pet and expressed deep appreciation for the VIP’s efforts,” the YCSO said.
No charges are pending against the driver, according to the statement.
The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office said that it is unusual for VIP volunteers to deploy the patrol car lights, as their role is typically to “act only as eyes and ears when they are in the field.” However, the YCSO command staff said it considered this use of lights and siren as justified since it was done “to save this dog from injury or death.”
The YCSO states on its website that members of the Volunteer in Protection program are subject to strict suitability criteria, including psychological tests and a background check. These volunteers assist deputies in different aspects of their patrol, including traffic control, prisoner transport, or crime scene security.
“Thanks to the work these dedicated volunteers do day in and day out and for the actions of this VIP to save this dog,” the YCSO said in the statement.
“They provide valuable support to the various Sections within the Sheriff’s Office and have become an integral part of day-to-day operations,” the YCSO stated on its website.
Florence brings 'epic' floods to the Carolinas tom.ozimek 2018-09-150 views Florence barreled into the Carolina coast and moved inland on Friday (September 14), knocking down trees, overflowing rivers, dumping sheets of rain and leading to the death of five people before it was downgraded to a tropical storm still capable of wreaking havoc.
In New Bern, North Carolina, the storm surge "overwhelmed" the town, located at the confluence of the Neuse and Trent rivers, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said.
Officials in the town of 30,000, which dates to the early 18th century, said over 100 people were rescued from floods and the downtown was under water by Friday afternoon. Calls for help multiplied as the wind picked up and the tide rolled in.
Damaged boats could be seen stranded on New Bern's streets after water began to recede late on Friday.
Some New Bern residents said they stayed in their homes to protect their houses and to help their neighbours.
The affects of the storm were also felt farther inland, where trees fell on homes in Wilson, North Carolina, which is located about 90 miles (145km) from the Atlantic Ocean.
In Wilmington, North Carolina a mother and her baby died when a tree fell on their home. The child's injured father was taken to a hospital. In the state's Pender County, a woman died of a heart attack. Paramedics trying to reach her were blocked by debris.
Two people died in Lenoir County. A 78-year-old man was electrocuted attempting to connect extension cords while another man perished when he was blown down by high winds while checking on his hunting dogs, a county spokesman said.
Nearly the entire state could be covered in several feet of water, Copper said during a news conference in Raleigh.
Florence had been a Category 3 hurricane on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale with 120-mph winds as of Thursday (September 13), but dropped to a Category 1 hurricane before coming ashore.
The National Hurricane Center downgraded it to a tropical storm on Friday afternoon, but warned that life-threatening storm surges - in which water is pushed by a storm over land that would normally be dry - and catastrophic freshwater flooding were still expected.
Florence plowed into the Carolinas, knocking down trees, gorging rivers, dumping sheets of rain as it lumbered slowly inland before it was downgraded to a tropical storm still capable of wreaking havoc.
Though Florence's shrieking winds diminished from hurricane force as it came ashore, forecasters said the sheer size of the 350-mile-wide storm and its painfully slow progress across North and South Carolina in the coming days could leave much of the region under water.
The storm was expected to move across parts of southeastern North Carolina and eastern South Carolina on Friday and Saturday (September 15), then head north over the western Carolinas and central Appalachian Mountains early next week, the NHC said. Significant weakening was expected over the weekend.
About 10 million people could be affected by the storm.
European Parliament Votes to Punish Hungary for Breaking EU Rules in Historic First tom.ozimek 2018-09-136 views The European Parliament voted on Wednesday (September 12) to sanction Hungary for flouting EU rules on democracy, civil rights and corruption in an unprecedented step that left Prime Minister Viktor Orban isolated from powerful allies. Rosanna Philpott reports. The EU has voted to punish one of it's own member states - Hungary, for eroding democracy, the rule of law and breaching EU values.
It's the first ever vote of it's kind, against Hungarian President Viktor Orban.
Right-wing, anti-migrant and eurosceptic.
Since sweeping to power in 2010 he has pressured Hungary's courts and media and blocked its borders against asylum seekers.
He says Muslim refugees pose an existential threat to Europe's Christian civilization.
Though the EU has protested, it has largely failed to stop what critics call his growing authoritarianism.
"Even though this vote passed today condemning Hungary for overstepping EU rules on democracy, rule of law and civil rights - it's highly unlikely that hungary would actually be sanctioned - because in the end Poland is likely to veto an sanctions against Hungary."
But even lesser sanctions could backfire and excluding Hungary could empower Europe's far-right and Orban's conservative mandate at home.
Rather than humbling, the vote has galvanised Hungary's leadership.
Orban personally flew to intervene in the debate ahead of the vote.
In a fiery speech vowing he would not give in to blackmail.
That drawing applause in the chamber from French, British and Dutch far-right lawmakers.
“Today marks the most significant moment so far in what has been one of the most complex and intensive investigations we have undertaken in Counter Terrorism policing,” said Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, the UK’s National Lead for Counter Terrorism Policing.
Police identified the suspects as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, and released their images.
Police have identified the two suspects as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, but say these are probably not their real names. (Metropolitan Police) Both are said to be about 40 years old and traveling on Russian passports, although the police noted they were likely using aliases and that these are probably not their real names.
Skripal, a former colonel in Russian military intelligence who betrayed dozens of agents to Britain's MI6 foreign spy service, and his daughter Yulia, were found unconscious on a public bench in the English city of Salisbury on March 4.
Britain blamed Russia for the poisonings and identified the poison as a deadly nerve agents known as Novichok, developed by the Soviet military in the 1970s and 1980s.
Russia has repeatedly denied any involvement in the attack.
Thousands Mourn East Ukraine's Killed Rebel Chief tom.ozimek 2018-09-0226 views The funeral of a pro-Russian rebel leader killed in an explosion last week drew vast crowds of mourners in eastern Ukraine's breakaway Donetsk region on Sunday, Sep. 2. Alexander Zakharchenko was fatally injured in an explosion in a cafe in Donetsk on Friday. Russia's foreign ministry accused Ukraine of his murder, while Kiev blamed his death on separatist infighting.
The official media outlet of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic said 200,000 people had gathered for the funeral of Zakharchenko, the republic's leader since 2014. Reuters was unable to verify that figure.
Footage showed long queues of mourners, many carrying red carnations, lining up to pay their respects outside the city's main opera theater, where Zakharchenko's coffin stood.
"I am here because I really respected him. He did everything for the people ... A good person is gone," Anna, a member of the crowd, said through tears.
"He was everything to us. He left fighting for his country. There are no words,” said Natalya, a mourner.
His coffin, draped in the separatist region's flag and the flag of the Russian Airborne Troops, a division of Russia's armed forces, was carried out of the theater to silent applause, footage showed.
It was placed on the gun-carriage of a large artillery weapon, which was then towed past the crowds by a truck.
"I didn't know him personally but he was a leader to all of us," Katya, a young woman attending the funeral, said.
At least five other leading separatist commanders have been killed in unexplained circumstances not connected to front-line combat since the conflict started in 2014, when Russian-backed rebels threw off Ukrainian central rule in an armed uprising.
A shaky internationally-brokered ceasefire has been in force since 2015, halting large-scale fighting, but frequent outbreaks of shooting on the front line between the separatists and Ukrainian forces continue.
Dashcam footage of the unusual incident showed the deer, with a massive rack of antlers on its head, trotting down the opposing lane of a street in Chelyabinsk on Aug. 30, before coming to a halt at an intersection and appearing to look both ways before proceeding.
The reindeer had earlier broken free from a restraint and fled from a zoo, Russian media reported.
Meteorite explodes over Chelyabinsk tom.ozimek 2018-08-312 views A large explosion took place in the sky over Chelyabinsk early on February 15, with officials blaming a meteor shower. This video shows a trail of smoke in the sky. A loud explosion and the sound of breaking glass are heard at 0.12, and people are seen being evacuated from a building at 2.05.
Hours after the incident, police said they were still investigating a possible motive for the attack and weren't excluding any possible scenarios.
Police spokesman Rob van der Veen said the violence happened shortly after noon (1000 GMT; 6 a.m. EDT) at the busy Central Station in downtown Amsterdam when a man walked into a group of people.
"Something happened, we don't know yet what, but during that two people were stabbed and one person with a knife in his hand walked away and he was shot by police," Van der Veen said.
All three people were taken to a hospital. Police didn't release details about their conditions.
Van der Veen said forensics experts were still combing the scene hours after the attack and detectives were investigating the man's motive.
Two platforms were temporarily closed to train traffic, but the station wasn't evacuated. Trams to and from the square in front of the station were stopped as police and emergency services converged on the area. Red and white police tape kept members of the public away from the scene.
Central Station is a busy entry and exit point for visitors to the Dutch capital, with regular trains linking it to the city's Schiphol Airport. Friday is one of the busiest days of the week, with many tourists arriving for the weekend.
At least seven people were killed, and many of the 49 passengers aboard the Greyhound bus were injured. Authorities couldn't immediately provide an exact count of how many were hurt or their conditions.
New Mexico State Police said the semi carrying produce was headed east on the freeway on the afternoon of Thursday, Aug. 30, when one of its tires blew. This sent the rig across the median and into oncoming traffic, where it slammed into the Greyhound heading to Phoenix from Albuquerque.
The National Transportation Safety Board and New Mexico state police are investigating.
At least nine bus passengers were being treated at the University of New Mexico Hospital. UNM officials didn't release any details about the patients' conditions.
James Ricketson, 69, was arrested last June after he was photographed flying the drone above the rally organized by the now-dissolved opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) before communal elections.
Ricketson was charged with espionage, although it remains unclear for whom he was spying. His family called the court sentence an "absolute tragedy".
The deaths come days after more than a hundred of the same species perished due to unknown causes.
The dead olive ridley sea turtles were discovered by fishermen in the southern state of Oaxaca on Mexico's Pacific coast in a sector called the Barra de Colotepec, Oaxaca's civil protection coordinator Heliodoro Diaz told Reuters.
Images captured by Reuters showed dozens of dead turtles, many of them in a state of decomposition, lined up through what looked like a mesh or in groups.
The olive ridleys, which are in danger of extinction, measure about 75 centimetres (29 inches) and weigh around 45 kilos (99 pounds). They arrive en masse on Mexico's Pacific coast every year to spawn between June and September, with some arriving as early as May.
The Latin American country, where six of the seven species of marine turtles that exist in the world nest, has a permanent protection program for the reptiles. This includes a complete ban on killing turtles, use of turtle excluder devices in trawl nets, and protection of spawning areas, among other measures that include prison sentences for those who kill them.
Mexico's office of the federal attorney for environmental protection (PROFEPA) said it was investigating the case.
In another case, authorities said they are investigating the deaths of 113 endangered marine turtles - 102 olive ridleys, six hawksbills and five of the species known as prieta, found in a sanctuary in Chiapas state, which borders Oaxaca.
There were no immediate reports of injuries, a coast guard official told Reuters.
The Eleftherios Venizelos, carrying 875 passengers and 141 crew, was sailing off the island of Hydra when it notified the coast guard around midnight (2100 GMT) that a car parking compartment had caught fire.
It was escorted back to Pireaus after authorities scrambled air and sea assets to the area.
"It was a huge operation and everything went to plan," said Nikos Lagdianos, spokesman for the coast guard.
At Pireaus a Reuters witness saw passengers in lifejackets walking down a sideway stair, while smoke billowed out of the ship. Firefighters were deployed at the pier.
People posted pictures on social media of individuals crowded on decks wearing red life jackets.
"It was difficult to breathe from the smoke," one passenger identified only by her first name, Natassa, told Skai TV. Another reported hearing a 'big noise' before passengers were advised to wear lifejackets and head to assembly areas.
Disembarkation of all passengers was completed around 0700 am (0400 GMT).
The cause of the fire was not immediately clear, but authorities were investigating the possibility it may have started from a vehicle. There were more than 200 vehicles, including trucks, on the vessel.
Freeland said talks aimed at forging a new North American trade agreement would continue.
"What has really paved the way for what Canada believes will be a good week is the fact that Mexico has made some significant concessions, particularly in the area of labor and of rules of origin on cars," Freeland told reporters outside Lighthizer's office.
Freeland said Canadian officials would meet with Mexico on Tuesday evening before resuming talks with Lighthizer on Wednesday morning.
