Irish farmer claims he was sexually assaulted by a leprechaun

https://worldnewsdailyreport.com/irish-farmer-claims-he-was-sexually-assaulted-by-a-leprechaun/?fbclid=IwAR2QUcFAhNzcdnRy0UCPNaq5ayUzKsfZG7a4DI1HcNEKA2NetnnzyPWCsko

In an exclusive interview broadcasted this morning on RTÉ, Angus Brennan from Watergrasshill, near Cork, says he was milking his cows on Saturday when he was hit on the head from behind with a shovel or similar tool.
The attack knocked him out, and when he woke up a few hours later, he had been tied up to a support beam inside his own barn.
The 54-year old farmer says he was repeatedly raped over the next 40 hours by a “waist-high midget with a red beard and a cocked hat”.

[I guess the hat wasn't the only thing that was cocked!]

Noeel: Electric Eel Lights Up Christmas Tree In Tennessee

Heard on All Things Considered

The Tennessee Aquarium says a system connected to an electric eel's tank enables his shocks to power strands of lights on the nearby tree.

An electric eel in Chattanooga, Tenn., is sparking a little holiday cheer.

Every time Miguel Wattson the electric eel releases a jolt of electricity, a festively-decorated Christmas tree next to his tank at the Tennessee Aquarium flickers and glows.

"There is a sensor directly in his exhibit that picks up when he produces electricity," Aquarist Kimberly Hurt, who cares for the electric eel, tells NPR.

The aquarium had already connected the sensor to a soundboard and a light board to correspond with Wattson's bursts, says Hurt. "It'll light up the board. It also does make some noise so people can hear when he's producing electricity."

So it wasn't a huge leap to also have Wattson's sensors connected to a Christmas tree, for a seasonal spin on the display.

Take a look at the electric eel in action:
Can an Electric Eel power the lights on a Christmas Tree? (SPOILER WARNING: Sort of.)

Thousands of 'penis fish' appear on California beach
Fat innkeeper worms typically burrow under the sand but recent storms have swept away layers, leaving them exposed

I’m not sure this is what the Weather Girls meant when they sang, “It’s raining men.”

Following a bout of winter storms in northern California, “thousands” of pink, throbbing, phallic creatures wound up pulsating along a beach about 50 miles north of San Francisco, Bay Nature reported.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B58did9BbBA/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_campaign=loading

According to the nature magazine, these 10in wrigglers are marine worms called fat innkeeper worms, but they are known colloquially as exactly what you’d want to call them: penis fish.

These penile figures typically burrow under the sand, far beneath the feet of beachgoers, but the recent storms brought on some waves that swept away the layers, leaving them exposed.

As seen in the first photo, seagulls enjoy gobbling up these penis fish, as do otters, other fish, sharks and rays. But the penis fish is a human delicacy to some as well. In South Korea, they call it gaebul.

So the next time you bury your toes in the sand, think about what throbs beneath the surface.

Man requests 'trial by combat' with Japanese swords to settle dispute with Iowa ex-wife
Anna Spoerre, Des Moines Register Published 4:07 p.m. CT Jan. 13, 2020 | Updated 4:52 p.m. CT Jan. 13, 2020

Image

https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/news/crime-and-courts/2020/01/13/iowa-courts-david-ostrom-requests-trial-combat-swords-settle-dispute/4456079002/

A Kansas man has asked an Iowa court to grant his motion for trial by combat so he can meet his ex-wife and her attorney "on the field of battle where (he) will rend their souls from their corporal bodies."

David Ostrom, 40, of Paola, Kansas, claims in court documents that his ex-wife, Bridgette Ostrom, 38, of Harlan, has "destroyed (him) legally."

He asked the Iowa District Court in Shelby County to give him 12 weeks "lead time" in order to source or forge katana and wakizashi swords, as first reported by the Carroll Times Herald.

"To this day, trial by combat has never been explicitly banned or restricted as a right in these United States," Ostrom argues in court records, adding that it was used "as recently as 1818 in British Court."

When reached by phone Monday, Ostrom told the Des Moines Register that he got the idea after learning about a 2016 case in which New York Supreme Court Justice Philip Minardo acknowledged that duels had not been abolished.

Ostrom said the motion stemmed from his frustrations with his ex-wife's attorney, Matthew Hudson of Harlan.

"I think I've met Mr. Hudson's absurdity with my own absurdity," he said.

Ostrom, who said he plans to request the same mediation tactic for any other disputes that may arise in court, added that his ex-wife can choose her attorney as a "champion," or stand-in fighter.

Hudson filed a resistance to the trial by combat motion by first correcting Ostrom's spelling.

"Surely (Ostrom) meant 'corporeal' bodies which Merriam Webster defines as having, consisting of, or relating to, a physical material body," the attorney wrote. "Although (Ostrom) and potential combatant do have souls to be rended, they respectfully request that the court not order this done."

Hudson argued that because a duel could end in death, such ramifications likely outweigh those of property tax and custody issues.

"It should be noted that just because the U.S. and Iowa constitutions do not specifically prohibit battling another person with a deadly katana sword, it does prohibit a court sitting in equity from ordering same," Hudson wrote.

Hudson asked the court to suspend Ostrom's visitation rights and order him to undergo a court-ordered psychological evaluation.

Ostrom later admitted to the misspelling, but argued he has no history of mental issues.

Historically, he said in court records, trial by combat was not always won by way of death, but also when a party "cries craven," yielding to the other.

"Respondent and counsel have proven themselves to be cravens by refusing to answer the call to battle, thus they should lose this motion by default," Ostrom wrote, adding that if the other party decided otherwise, he wants to proceed with a "blunted practice style" of sword play.

The court has not yet ruled on either party's motions. Hudson was not immediately available for comment.

Ostrom, who said he doesn't have any experience with sword fighting, doesn't anticipate the judge will let his request go forward, but he wants an answer anyway.

When asked if he were serious about the dueling offer, Ostrom said, "If Mr. Hudson is willing to do it, I will meet him. I don't think he has the guts to do it."

A New Zealand sheep farmer has been arrested after authorities were warned by the CIA and MI6 that he was doing business with ISIS militants in Syria.
Allan Seymour, 52, was sending an “intriguing large number” of livestock to Syria, destined to locations in Syria which are not controlled by the local government but are presently under the rule of ISIS forces, which alarmed CIA and MI6 officials monitoring the region.

Although New Zealand Customs Services believed at first he was hiding weapons or explosives within the shipments, further investigations found no such evidence.

Instead, CIA and MI6 reported that the sheep “were not used for food” but instead “were used for satisfying ISIS soldiers sexual appetite” confirmed a spokesman for the New Zealand’s Ministry of Defense to reporters this morning.

Allan Seymour sold thousands of sheep to Syria to “satisfy ISIS soldiers sexual appetite” according to a joint CIA and MI6 report has admitted New Zealand’s Ministry of Defense

The lust for sheep
According to political analyst and Middle Eastern expert Dave Wellsborough, the demand for livestock in the region is nothing new.

“ISIS soldiers are importing large quantities of livestock from other regions in the area because ISIS soldiers have a high libido giving that there are not many women around,” he explains.
“Islamic law permits to sleep with goats, sheep or other livestock as long as the animal is killed afterward, which explains the high numbers,” he adds.

Bestiality and Islam
In a controversial interview last year, Dr. Zakir Naik – a noted Quranic scholar – explained why bestiality is permitted under certain conditions in Islam.

“A man is still considered pure when he releases his lust with a sheep or goat. If there is no woman, then there is no true lust or sexual sin. Then the animal becomes tainted and so must die. So says the Prophet Mohammed”.
According to New Zealand Customs services, over 20,000 sheep were shipped by Allan Seymour in the last year, but hundreds of thousands more could have been sent from other New Zealand farmers to ISIS forces which are presently unaccounted for.

Bricks Alive! Scientists Create Living Concrete
“A Frankenstein material” is teeming with — and ultimately made by — photosynthetic microbes. And it can reproduce.

By Amos Zeeberg Jan. 15, 2020

For centuries, builders have been making concrete roughly the same way: by mixing hard materials like sand with various binders, and hoping it stays fixed and rigid for a long time to come.

Now, an interdisciplinary team of researchers at the University of Colorado, Boulder, has created a rather different kind of concrete — one that is alive and can even reproduce.

Minerals in the new material are deposited not by chemistry but by cyanobacteria, a common class of microbes that capture energy through photosynthesis. The photosynthetic process absorbs carbon dioxide, in stark contrast to the production of regular concrete, which spews huge amounts of that greenhouse gas.

Photosynthetic bacteria also give the concrete another unusual feature: a green color. “It really does look like a Frankenstein material,” said Wil Srubar, a structural engineer and the head of the research project. (The green color fades as the material dries.)

Other researchers have worked on incorporating biology into concrete, especially concrete that can heal its own cracks. A major advantage of the new material, its creators say, is that instead of adding bacteria to regular concrete — an inhospitable environment — their process is oriented around bacteria: enlisting them to build the concrete, and keeping them alive so they make more later on.

The new concrete, described Wednesday in the journal Matter, “represents a new and exciting class of low-carbon, designer construction materials,” said Andrea Hamilton, a concrete expert at the University of Strathclyde, in Scotland.

To build the living concrete, the researchers first tried putting cyanobacteria in a mixture of warm water, sand and nutrients. The microbes eagerly absorbed light and began producing calcium carbonate, gradually cementing the sand particles together. But the process was slow — and Darpa, the Department of Defense’s speculative research arm and the project’s funder, wanted the construction to go very quickly. Necessity, happily, birthed invention.

Dr. Srubar had previously worked with gelatin, a food ingredient that, when dissolved in water and cooled, forms special bonds between its molecules. Importantly, it can be used at moderate temperatures that are gentle on bacteria. He suggested adding gelatin to strengthen the matrix being built by the cyanobacteria, and the team was intrigued.

The researchers bought Knox brand gelatin at a local supermarket and dissolved it in the solution with the bacteria. When they poured the mixture into molds and cooled it in a refrigerator, the gelatin formed its bonds — “just like when you make Jell-O,” Dr. Srubar said. The gelatin provided more structure, and worked with the bacteria to help the living concrete grow stronger and faster.

After about a day, the mixture formed concrete blocks in the shape of whatever molds the group used, including two-inch cubes, shoe box-size blocks and truss pieces with struts and cutouts. Individual two-inch cubes were strong enough for a person to stand on, although the material is weak compared to most conventional concretes. Blocks about the size of a shoe box showed potential for doing real construction.

“The first time we made a big structure using this system, we didn’t know if it was going to work, scaling up from this little-bitty thing to this big brick,” said Chelsea Heveran, a former postdoc with the group — now an engineer at Montana State University — and the lead author of the study. “We took it out of the mold and held it — it was a beautiful, bright green and said ‘Darpa’ on the side.” (The mold featured the name of the project’s funder.) “It was the first time we had the scale we were envisioning, and that was really exciting.”

When the group brought small samples to a regular review meeting with officials from Darpa, they were impressed, Dr. Srubar said: “Everyone wanted one on their desk.”

Stored in relatively dry air at room temperature, the blocks reach their maximum strength over the course of days, and the bacteria gradually begin to die out. But even after a few weeks, the blocks are still alive; when again exposed to high temperature and humidity, many of the bacterial cells perk back up.

The group can take one block, cut it with a diamond-tipped saw, place half back in a warm beaker with more raw materials, pour it in a mold, and begin concrete formation anew. Each block could thus spawn three new generations, yielding eight descendant blocks.

The Department of Defense is interested in using the reproductive ability of these “L.B.M.s” — living building materials — to aid construction in remote or austere environments. “Out in the desert, you don’t want to have to truck in lots of materials,” Dr. Srubar said.

The blocks also have the advantage of being made from a variety of common materials. Most concrete requires virgin sand that comes from rivers, lakes and oceans, which is running short worldwide, largely because of the enormous demand for concrete. The new living material is not so picky. “We’re not pigeonholed into using some particular kind of sand,” Dr. Srubar said. “We could use waste materials like ground glass or recycled concrete.”

The research team is working to make the material more practical by making the concrete stronger; increasing the bacteria’s resistance to dehydration; reconfiguring the materials so they can be flat-packed and easily assembled, like slabs of drywall; and finding a different kind of cyanobacteria that doesn’t require the addition of a gel.

Eventually, Dr. Srubar said, the tools of synthetic biology could dramatically expand the realm of possibilities: for instance, building materials that can detect and respond to toxic chemicals, or that light up to reveal structural damage. Living concrete might help in environments harsher than even the driest deserts: other planets, like Mars.

“There’s no way we’re going to carry building materials to space,” Dr. Srubar said. “We’ll bring biology with us.”

Antarctica shock: NASA scientists discover ‘GHOST’ particles which could re-write physics
ANTARCTICA has offered up yet another surprise to NASA scientists after a particle was detected there which could re-write the laws of physics, experts have revealed.
By Sean Martin

https://www.express.co.uk/news/science/1228687/antarctica-discovery-nasa-news-ghost-particle-standard-model-physics

PUBLISHED: 06:59, Thu, Jan 16, 2020 | UPDATED: 07:23, Thu, Jan 16, 2020

Experts at the IceCube observatory in Antarctica have discovered a ‘ghost particle’ but an investigation into the mysterious material has offered no clues regarding its origin. The IceCube observatory consists of a 1000m-sized ice patch in Antarctica which has sensors beneath the surface to record when a neutrino collides with particles on the ice - a very rare event. Neutrinos are invisible yet high-energy particles that are one of the fundamental ingredients of the universe.

Little is known about them due to the fact that they rarely interact with other particles apart from when they collide head on.

However, neutrinos may hold some secrets to the history of the universe as when they do collide with other particles, a chain reaction occurs that lets scientists trace the neutrinos back to their original source – thus unravelling some of the mysteries of the universe.

They often pass through Earth but because they are not influenced, they go undetected.

But their existence is a fundamental ingredient in the Standard Model of physics, the most accurate description of the universe humans have ever known.

By trawling through seven years of observations from IceCube and NASA’s Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna (ANITA) – a helium balloon which hovers above Antarctica – experts have discovered neutrinos which hit Earth, yet they still cannot explain them or their origins.

Astrophysicist Alex Pizzuto from the University of Wisconsin–Madison said: “It’s commonly said that neutrinos are ‘elusive’ or ‘ghostly’ particles because of their remarkable ability to pass through material without smashing into something.

“But at these incredible energies, neutrinos are like bulls in a china shop – they become much more likely to interact with particles in Earth.”

However, scientists cannot rule out that this is a chance encounter, but it is more likely a bundle of neutrinos hit our planet in one go, and just a few were detected.

As a result, the team looked for a source of the neutrinos, but the results were inconclusive.

A statement from IceCube said: “In all three searches, they found no evidence for a neutrino source in the direction of the strange ANITA events.

“This is particularly intriguing because, due to a process called tau neutrino regeneration, the extremely high-energy events that don’t make it all the way to ANITA should still be detectable by IceCube.”

Anastasia Barbano of the University of Geneva in Switzerland, another lead on the paper published in the Astrophysical Journal, said: “This process makes IceCube a remarkable tool to follow up the ANITA observations, because for each anomalous event that ANITA detects, IceCube should have detected many, many more—which, in these cases, we didn’t.

Image

“That means that we can rule out the idea that these events came from some intense point source, because the odds of ANITA seeing an event and IceCube not seeing anything are so slim.”

With no explanation of their origin, researchers believe they could have to re-think the Standard Model.

Mr Pizzuto said: “Our analysis ruled out the only remaining Standard Model astrophysical explanation of the anomalous ANITA events.

“So now, if these events are real and not just due to oddities in the detector, then they could be pointing to physics beyond the Standard Model.”

Is that Bigfoot? A Washington traffic agency tweets a photo of, well, something
https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/24/us/bigfoot-sighting-washington-trnd/index.html

By Francisco Guzman and Brian Ries, CNN
Updated 8:34 AM ET, Fri January 24, 2020

The WSDOT tweeted this image and suggested it could be Bigfoot.

(CNN)Is that... Bigfoot? Someone at the Washington State Department of Transportation certainly thinks there's a chance.
The Twitter account for the agency shared a traffic camera's photograph that showed what appeared to be, well, something walking near a tree in the distance.
"Sasquatch spotted!!! I'm not superstitious... just a little stitious," the person running the DOT account for the eastern part of the state tweeted on Wednesday.

"If you look closely by the tree on the left there looks to be something."
In the still image, taken by webcam on Sherman Pass, a dark, human-like can certainly be seen in a walking stance.

Look for yourself:
https://twitter.com/WSDOT_East/status/1220090003805442048?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220090003805442048&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cnn.com%2F2020%2F01%2F24%2Fus%2Fbigfoot-sighting-washington-trnd%2Findex.html

But Twitter sleuths weren't having it.

One replied, "Zoom in, it's the tree trunk shadow. I want to believe but I don't believe this picture. Or that he stood still in multiple photos... unless he is frozen of course. Lol."

The webcam is still posting photos from the spot -- a new one appears every hour.

But then the official WSDOT account for Snoqualmie Pass joined in on the fun -- they tweeted a video of a similar figure walking through the snow.

https://twitter.com/SnoqualmiePass/status/1220424185987596289?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220424185987596289&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cnn.com%2F2020%2F01%2F24%2Fus%2Fbigfoot-sighting-washington-trnd%2Findex.html

The mythical creature is widely associated with the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, but it appears to be a traveler -- sightings have been reported all over the world. It even has its own festival in North Carolina.

But it's not all lighthearted fun. Last year, a man fired a gun in a Kentucky national park after he claimed he saw Bigfoot.
That man said he fired into the darkness after the ape-like monster that has never been proven to exist lunged at him, a couple that talked to the man told CNN.

Law enforcement rangers with the Mammoth Cave National Park responded to the incident involving the camper with the firearm at one of the park's backcountry campsites, park spokeswoman Molly Schroer said at the time.
The statement did not confirm a Bigfoot sighting -- but Schroer said no threat remained in the park.

Additional reporting by CNN's Darran Simon and Mirna Alsharif

Watch 'Antiques Roadshow' man fall in disbelief at what $349 watch worth now
"You OK?" the appraiser said as the man went down to the ground, heels over head. "Don't fall. I'm not done."

By David K. Li

An Air Force veteran fell backward to the ground in disbelief after learning a watch he purchased for $345.97 nearly a half-century ago could go for several hundred thousand dollars.

The man, featured this week in PBS's popular show “Antiques Roadshow,” showed his virtually unworn 1971 Rolex Oyster Cosmograph to appraiser Peter Planes.

The veteran, who has not been identified, explained he was stationed in southeast Asia in the 1970s when he became fascinated by Rolex watches after seeing airline pilots of the era commonly wear them.

He said he enjoyed scuba diving at the time and believed this Rolex model would stand up well to water. He ordered it in November 1974 through the military base exchange and received it in April 1975.

"I found this particular watch where I could afford it, and I never used it. I looked at it and I said, `You know, this is really too nice to take down in salty water,' " he said. "I just kept it."

Not only did he keep the watch in a safe deposit box, the vet also held on to all purchase and maintenance documents, adding to its value, according to Planes.

When Planes told him the watch could be worth $400,000 at auction, the man collapsed in disbelief during the taping in Fargo, North Dakota.

"You OK?" Planes said calmly as the man went down heels over head. "Don't fall. I'm not done."

The man got up, grinning ear to ear, to get even more incredible news.

"Because of the condition of it, basically, it's a new old stock watch, no wear on it," Planes said. "We have all this complete documentation here, also, maybe one of the very few in the whole world that still was never worn, your watch, at auction, today, $500,000 to $700,000."

The amazed man said: "You got to be (expletive) me."

This model of Rolex is particularly beloved by collectors because Paul Newman wore it in his 1969 movie "Winning," according to Planes.

75-Year-Old Volunteer Visits Animal Shelter Every Day And Naps With Cats
“[He sleeps for] about an hour, then he’ll wake up and switch cats,” said the founder of Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary.

A man in Wisconsin has turned snoozing into a charitable act.

Terry Lauerman, 75, goes to his local animal shelter in Green Bay every day and takes naps with its cats.

Image

Though, that’s not quite his intention.

According to Elizabeth Feldhausen, the founder of Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary, Lauerman strolled into the shelter about six months ago with a simple dream and a cat brush in tow.

“He just walked in and started brushing,” Feldhausen told HuffPost on Thursday, noting that he never asked to be a volunteer. “So eventually we told him he was an official volunteer and had him fill out our volunteer form.”

Image

Feldhausen said Lauerman visits the cage-free sanctuary — which rescues disabled cats that would be at risk of euthanasia at other facilities — daily and stays for about three hours.

After he grooms a cat for a bit, he typically dozes off.

“[He sleeps for] about an hour, then he’ll wake up and switch cats,” said Feldhausen.

Apparently, Lauerman really enjoys the unpaid gig a lot — especially the sprucing aspect of it.

“He said, [the brushing is] as great of an experience for him, as it is for them,” Feldhausen said.

Naturally, the volunteer with a habit of accidentally passing out charmed the staff at Safe Haven, and the group decided to dedicate a Facebook post to him on Tuesday.

“We are so lucky to have a human like Terry,” the shelter wrote, alongside a few photos of Lauerman cat napping with felines. “Terry just came along one day and introduced himself. He said he’d like to brush cats. Eventually, it became everyday. He brushes all of the cats, and can tell you about all of their likes and dislikes. He also accidentally falls asleep most days. We don’t mind - Cats need this! Terry is a wonderful volunteer.”

Ends up the staff at the shelter weren’t the only ones smitten by Lauerman. As of Thursday afternoon, the post has received over 1.6 million on Facebook. It also made its way over to Reddit, where it has received hundreds of comments.

And although Lauerman hopes his 15 minutes of fame leads to more donations to Safe Haven, he also wants to remind people that he’s not the only person dedicating his time to shelter.

Feldhausen said that Lauerman specifically praised another volunteer named Paula.

“Who is what he considers the cat grandma,” Feldhausen said. “He wants to make sure the people who do what he does every day get credit too.”

Burning calories: pig starts farm fire by excreting pedometer
Seventy-five square metres of farm near Leeds set alight after copper in pedometer battery reacted with dung and dry hay


Firefighters in North Yorkshire have tackled a blaze that broke out after a pig swallowed a pedometer which then combusted in its pen after excretion.

The fire crews were called to a blaze covering 75 square metres at four pigpens in Bramham, near Leeds, on Saturday afternoon.

The North Yorkshire fire and rescue service said the fire was caused by “nature taking its course” and copper from the pedometer battery reacting with dry hay and the pigpen’s contents.

The pedometer was being used to prove the animal was free range and had been taken off one of its fellow pigs.

No animals were harmed as a result of the fire.

“Should be an oink not a tweet,” said the fire service on social media. “A hosereel was used to extinguish the fire and save the bacon.”

A man allegedly teaching his dog to drive was arrested after leading troopers on a high speed chase

By Alaa Elassar, CNN

(CNN) A man was arrested Sunday after leading troopers on a high-speed chase with his dog sitting in the driver's seat, a spokeswoman for the Washington State Patrol said.
The man from Lakewood, Washington, hit two cars on separate occasions and failed to stop both times, leading state troopers on a high-speed chase up Interstate 5, the spokeswoman said. No major injuries were reported in either crash.

"He was driving very erratically. So erratically that multiple people called 911," trooper Heather Axtman told CNN.

The suspect was driving "absolutely recklessly," and a pursuit ensued at 109 miles an hour, she said. One of the troopers attempted to corner the suspect's car, looked inside and realized a pit bull was sitting in the driver's seat while the suspect steered, Axtman said.

As he was trying to evade troopers, the suspect drove onto Centennial Trail, a trail for pedestrians and bicyclists in Snohomish County known for being busy, according to Axtman.

"The fact that there wasn't anybody on the trail is nothing shy of miraculous." Axtman said. "We are very thankful."
Eventually troopers were able to use spike strips to end the pursuit. During the arrest, Axtman said the suspect gave them one explanation: He was "trying to teach his dog how to drive."

"I wish I could make this up," Axtman, who is also a public information officer, said. "I've been a trooper for almost 12 years and wow, I've never heard this excuse. I've been in a lot of high speed chases, I've stopped a lot of cars, and never have I gotten an excuse that they were teaching their dog how to drive."

The Washington State Patrol charged the man with reckless endangerment, hit and run, driving under the influence and felony eluding. His bond was set at $8,500 and he is set to appear in court March 30.
As for the dog, Axtman said the "very sweet girl" was taken to the animal shelter after her owner was arrested.

Sacre bail: French 64-year-old accidentally ejects during surprise fighter jet trip
Joshua Bote·15:58, April 17th, 2020.

Image
Bureau of Enquiry and Analysis for Civil Aviation Safety in France.
The executive had no prior military experience and expressed no desire to be on a fighter jet.

An untrained French 64-year-old ejected himself from a fighter jet after taking a surprise joyride through the skies, a French government report has revealed.

The documents, first obtained by BuzzFeed News, show the man participated in flight training at the Saint-Dizier airbase in eastern France.

An executive at a military weapons company, the man - not identified in the report - was sent on the flight in the Dassault Rafale B jet as a surprise by his co-workers.

He had no prior military experience and expressed no desire to be on a fighter jet.

During the flight, the man - stressed and overwhelmed - neglected to tighten his seat straps or his helmet, causing him to float in the jet while in mid-air.

The situation, according to the report, caused him distress - but he felt as if he couldn't turn down the offer due to "social pressure" from his colleagues, one of whom was a former Air Force pilot.

His heart was beating at a rate between 120 and 145 beats per minute leading up to the flight, the report pointed out.

During the flight, the man - stressed and overwhelmed - neglected to tighten his seat straps or his helmet, causing him to float in the jet while in mid-air.

He tried to hold on to his seat handle, when he accidentally pushed the eject button - opening up the parachute and losing his helmet in the process.

The man sustained moderate injuries that required hospitalisation after landing in a field by the airbase.

French military health regulations advise that passengers aboard a fighter jet must undergo a medical assessment 10 days prior to the flight.

Given the surprise element of the man's flight, the military ignored the recommendation and performed his medical visit just a few hours before takeoff.

The Valentine's Day snake puzzle

Image

The search for a culprit who abandoned 29 valuable snakes in February is continuing, but it's a case that has everyone mystified, reports Chris Stokel-Walker.

The wriggling inside the pillowcase signalled that something wasn't right.

The evening before Valentine's Day, firefighters working at Farringdon Community Fire Station, a modern, two-storey building in Sunderland, were asked to deal with an unusual incident.

The location was a bin around the back of their station, where Buzz Lightyear bedding hid 13 royal python snakes, each between two and four feet long. (Tyne and Wear Fire Service were approached for this story, but declined to participate.) The RSPCA was called and the officer who arrived at the scene took the cold and already lethargic animals home to warm them up.

Image

The following morning, 14 February, a local vet found that all were in good condition except one, which later died.

It was at this point that RSPCA inspector Trevor Walker was called in. Though he works in nearby Newcastle, he's a Yorkshire lad and was due to visit family in the county that day. As the snakes needed to be moved to a specialist RSPCA holding centre in Yorkshire, he volunteered to carry them in the boot of his Volvo hatchback.

"We had 12 snake bags, each one containing one snake, laid in the boot where it was nice and warm," he says.

"I didn't mention it to the wife until we were halfway there. I don't think she'd have been happy if she'd known."

Having safely deposited the snakes, Walker got on with family matters. But as he was looking at his iPad the next day, he received a fresh alert. Another set of snakes had been abandoned in exactly the same place. This time, one more royal python and 15 corn snakes, left in two taped and ziplocked pink pillowcases.

Image

"Any normal decent person has a mix of horror and shock," says Alec Wood of North East Reptile Rescue, which regularly rehouses reptiles whose owners are unable to continue keeping their pets.

"It's an act of cruelty, and none of us like to see that happen to any animal. It paints the hobby in a bad light," he adds. "A very bad light."

The twin findings captured the imagination of local and national media.

"It's really unusual to see this kind of volume of snakes," says Walker. "There'll always be the occasional snake that has escaped his vivarium, and you find him basking in the sun the following day." But this was different.

"For these kind of numbers, it must have been some kind of a trade, possibly some kind of pet shop," he adds. "Though why would a pet shop abandon these snakes which are quite valuable to them and are a source of money?"

The RSPCA's inquiries are continuing, hampered by the fact that there wasn't any CCTV footage of the area. Peta, an animal rights campaign group, offered a £2,500 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever left the snakes. "It takes a disturbing and dangerous lack of empathy to dump so many animals," said Peta director Elisa Allen.

Image

Though an estimated 400,000 snakes are kept as pets in homes across the UK, keeping pythons and corn snakes isn't cheap. The RSPCA recommends housing each in a separate vivarium, large enough for the animal to stretch out, with one end warmer and lighter than the other. The space must be well ventilated, but humidity levels must also be carefully controlled to resemble West Africa, in the case of the pythons, and dry American scrubland or forest in the case of the corn snakes.

"There's a lot of money that has to be tied up in looking after these kinds of snakes, which leads us away from the odd house that's got a vivarium with one snake in," says Walker. "Very unusual."

But specialist snake keepers can't think who the reptiles would have belonged to either.

"If somebody was trying to get rid of a collection that big, people would know about it, and there just isn't anything," says Alec Wood. "If you talk to people in the reptile community around here, if you talk to people who run shops and everything, there hasn't been somebody looking to get rid of a large collection like that recently."

He points out that some of the royal pythons were varieties with rare colours or patterns, known as "morphs". One was a spider morph - yellow with very fine black lines. "They're fairly expensive, or have been in the past," Wood says.

Image

This suggests to him that it wasn't the owner who got rid of the snakes. Perhaps a tragedy occurred, he suggests - a sudden domestic break-up, an unexpected serious illness or a death, as a result of which a friend or relative was left with a large collection they had no idea how to look after or offload?

"If your circumstances changed incredibly suddenly, you might not have the time it takes to get rid of such a large collection through normal routes," he says.

Chris Newman of the National Centre for Reptile Welfare (NCRW), based in Tonbridge, Kent, agrees that the sudden appearance of the snakes out of the blue is odd. Hobbyists are a tight-knit community, he says, so one of them should surely have known who the snakes belonged to.

And there is another thing that doesn't add up, from his perspective: "Typically, people who keep corn snakes keep corn snakes, and people who keep royal pythons keep royal pythons."

For these reasons, he suspects foul play - a deliberate attempt to stain the reputation of the reptile community.

"Reptiles have always attracted lots of negative publicity from animal rights groups, and one can't help thinking that there's something behind this," he says.

"If your intention was to develop publicity, then dumping them would work."

Asked who would want to do such a thing, Newman says he doesn't know.

But Alec Wood says some are uneasy about the RSPCA's involvement in the case, because of its historical opposition to the keeping of all exotic pets.

When the Animal Welfare Act, which governs how people can keep animals in the UK, was being drawn up in the early 2000s, there was a campaign to ban ownership of reptiles. It wasn't successful, but snake hobbyists haven't forgotten.

"It's very easy to become paranoid, but I do like to try and understand what's going on, how these things have happened and what's driving them," Newman says.

Image

An RSPCA press officer said there was a common misconception among reptile owners that the organisation was against the keeping of snakes, pointing out that the RSPCA published care information to help owners do their best for the animals.

A statement continued: "The RSPCA does have concerns about the trade and keeping of reptiles as pets, and meeting the needs of some species will be very difficult, if not impossible, in a typical household... There are some species, for example, which grow very large, such as reticulated pythons which can grow up to 30ft long in captivity; it would be very difficult for owners to provide an enclosure with sufficient space for these animals in a typical home environment."

Peta still argues that snakes suffer in private ownership. "Many are torn away from their natural homes and shipped hundreds or thousands of miles in appalling conditions, only to be shoved into a small tank and later dumped, as these animals were," the organisation says. It recently launched a campaign demanding legislation to ensure snakes are given space to stretch out fully.

Commenting on the suggestion that an animal rights group could have dumped the 29 pythons and corn snakes, a Peta press officer said: "Please know that at Peta we respect snakes and we protect snakes. To suggest otherwise is to slander us."

In the meantime, the RSPCA investigation goes on. "We've put out an appeal for anyone who noticed anything that happened over those two nights, particularly whether any vehicles were seen in the area," says Trevor Walker. There are "a couple of leads" the charity is following up, but which it isn't willing to disclose.

So far, Walker says, the police have not been asked for help.

"As and when the investigation proceeds, if there's any time we need to get access into a building, a property, or a domesticated area, that's when we'll involve the police and ask for their assistance."

Five-year-old caught driving parents' car in Utah

Image
Police say no one was hurt in the incident

Some toddlers spill milk in the kitchen or give their parents a headache by pulling the cat's tail.

Five-year-old Adrian took the family car, and was only caught when police in Utah state stopped him on the freeway.

A patrolman spotted the SUV weaving across lanes at 30mph (50km/h), and issued a traffic stop, duly obeyed by the driver.

He was shocked to discover the child behind the wheel, who said he was on his way to buy a Lamborghini.

The boy told police that he had left home after his mother refused to buy him the luxury vehicle - lower-priced models cost over $180,000 (£144,000) - which sparked an argument.

"He decided he'd take the car and go to California to buy one himself," Utah Highway Patrol said on Twitter. "He might have been short on the purchase amount, as he only had $3 dollars in his wallet."

Dash camera footage posted by KSL-TV shows the vehicle weaving slightly in traffic before pulling over at the police signal.

Highway patrol initially thought it might be an impaired driver behind the wheel.

In the footage, the officer can then be heard saying "How old are you? You're five years old?" once he sees the boy.

The boy was sitting at the very edge of the seat to be able to reach the pedals. He had made it about a five minutes' drive from home.

No-one was hurt in the incident. It will be left to local prosecutors to decide whether to file charges against the parents, KSL-TV reports.

Both were at work and he was left in the care of a sibling when he took the car. Police issued a reminder to ensure car keys are not easily accessible to children.

This kid looks older than 5. I don't think I could even see over the steering wheel at that age! Plus he's got the seat leaned back...

Daughter_of_Mr_Green_Genes is also 5 and looks like 7 or more, based on some comments. I grant you he does look older (and like the liquid metal terminator being shot in the face). I wish they had the video, didn't care to search...

I was thinking the same thing about that censor over his face! Would a simple blur not suffice? It looks like some kind of reptile crossed with a cinnamon bun... :lol:

Lamborghini offers pouring in for 5-year-old Utah boy who stole parents' SUV

https://kutv.com/news/local/lamborghini-offers-pouring-in-for-5-year-old-utah-boy-who-stole-parents-suv

OGDEN, Utah (KUTV) — The Lamborghini dreams of a 5-year-old Utah boy, who stole his parents' SUV so he could drive to California to buy one, are now coming true.

On Monday, Adrian Zamarripa took the keys to his parents' SUV after an argument with his mother where she refused to buy him a Lamborghini.

Adrian drove for about two miles -- on his way to buy a Lamborghini with $3 in his pocket --before being stopped on Interstate 15 by Utah Highway Patrol.

His family says they are very sorry for this incident and warned other parents to not leave their car keys unattended.

Adrian’s sister, Sidney Estrada, told 2News:

"Oh, I lost it, something bad could have happened to him."
Image

Estrada says she was watching the family’s children while their parents were both at work. She says she fell asleep. When she woke up, she realized Adrian may be in danger.

"I saw that the truck was gone, and he was gone, and the keys were gone ... I don’t know what went through his mind."

Now -- just one day later -- offers for Adrian to sit in, and ride in a Lamborghini are pouring in. The family is still deciding what to do with the offers.

The Estrada family met up with "Jeremy from Orem," who is a Lamborghini owner, so Adrian could get a ride.

The family tells 2News they've received other Lamborghini-related offers.

Here at 2News, we've had emails from public relations professionals wanting to get in touch with Adrian regarding Lamborghinis.
