U.S. imposes more North Korea sanctions, Trump warns of 'phase two'
hilaryl
2018-02-24    0 views
The U.S. announced on Feb. 23, its “largest set of sanctions” to pressure North Korea into giving up its nuclear missile program.

"Our actions target shipping and trade companies, vessels and individuals across the world who we know are working with North Korea's behalf. Specifically, we are sanctioning 27 entities, 28 vessels and one individual all involved in sanctions-evasion schemes," announced Steven Mnuchin, U.S. Treasury Secretary.

The United States also proposed a list of entities to be blacklisted under separate United Nations sanctions, a move "aimed at shutting down North Korea's illicit maritime smuggling activities to obtain oil and sell coal."

President Donald Trump warned of a "phase two” if sanctions against North Korea did not work.

"I don't think I'm going to exactly play that card, but we'll have to see, if the sanctions don't work, we'll have to go phase two and phase two may be a very rough thing, may be very, very unfortunate for the world. But hopefully the sanctions will work," said U.S. President Donald Trump.

North Korea has been developing nuclear-tipped missiles capable of reaching the U.S. mainland.

President Trump reiterates call for armed teachers in US schools

2018-02-23    0 views
President Donald Trump renewed his call Friday for the arming of many "gun adept" teachers and security guards at American schools.

Speaking at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland, Trump said designating schools as "gun-free zones" puts students in "far more danger."

He reiterated his push for "gun-adept teachers and coaches" to be able to carry concealed firearms and said it was "time to make our schools a much harder target for attackers — we don't want them in our schools."

If a teacher had been carrying a concealed firearm at the Florida school, "the teacher would have shot the hell out of him before he knew what happened," President Trump said.

President Trump is also calling for stronger background checks and increased focus on mental health.

Mumbai patient recovering after record tumor surgery

31-year-old shopkeeper Santlas Pal is recovering after surgery that may have a set a new record.

He came to Mumbai's BYL Nair hospital earlier this month, with a brain tumor almost as large as his own head.

“The weight of the tumor which we charted was around one kilo 873 grams (4.1 pounds), and which, in our knowledge and our search of literature, neurosurgical literature, is probably the highest or largest brain tumor which has been successfully removed," said Dr. Trimurti Nadkarni, head of neurosurgical department of BYL Nair Hospital.

But its removal required a complex operation. It took a team of neurosurgeons seven hours to complete.

They say managing their patient's blood supply during surgery posed a major challenge... but the team succeeded, giving everyone reason to celebrate.

"After (the) ventilator, he gradually came out. And today he is fully conscious, walking around, eating orally," said Dr. Trimurti Nadkarni, head of neurosurgical department of BYL Nair Hospital.

...and now Santlas Pal is preparing to leave hospital with a full recovery expected and his name in the record books.

Deputy who never entered school in US shooting resigns

"I'm Scot Peterson. I've been a police officer for 30 years, I've been a school resource officer for 25 years”

Video footage has surfaced of an armed officer being present at the deadly shooting in Florida but doing nothing to stop the shooter. 

17 people were killed by a former student.

The shooting lasted about six minutes.

Sheriff Scott Israel, Broward County Sheriff's Office: “What I saw was, a deputy arrived at the west side of building 12, take up a position and he never went in."

The officer, Scot Peterson, was suspended without pay and placed under investigation. He then chose to resign.

The local community is grappling with word that Peterson did nothing to stop the shooter.

President Donald Trump also criticized Peterson’s inaction.

“He was there for five minutes, for five minutes. That was during the entire shooting, he heard it right at the beginning. So he certainly did a poor job. But that's a case where somebody was outside, they're trained, they're didn't react properly under pressure or they were cowards. It was a real shock to the police department."

The high school where the shooting occurred reopened on Feb. 23.

Trump endorses raising minimum age to 21 for more weapons

2018-02-22    0 views
President Donald Trump on Thursday endorsed a higher minimum age for buying certain rifles and tighter background checks for purchasers, saying "there's nothing more important than protecting our children," amid a public outcry for action after the Florida school shooting.

The president commented as he opened a school safety discussion at the White House with state and local officials from around the country.

The current federal minimum age for buying or possessing handguns is 21, but the limit is 18 for rifles including assault-type weapons such as the AR-15 used by a former student in last week's attack in Florida that killed 17 students and staff members.

"We're going to work on getting the age up to 21 instead of 18," Trump said at the White House, adding that he thinks the NRA will back it - despite the group's stated opposition.

Trump also reiterated his call for trained teachers or others in schools to carry guns as a deterrent to attacks.

And he said the nation needs to look at whether violent video games and movies are contributing to school shootings.

NRA leader-US must harden "wide open target" schools

2018-02-22    0 views
The leader of the National Rifle Association says supporters of gun control are exploiting the school shooting in Florida to promote an anti-gun agenda.

NRA chief Wayne LaPierre says opponents of gun rights "hate individual freedoms" and want to eliminate the 2nd Amendment.

LaPierre spoke at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland.

He says Democrats like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California and Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy are eager to blame the NRA and are calling "for even more government control."

LaPierre says the answer to increasing safety in schools is to heighten the security presence to the levels of federal buildings and sports games.

"To stop a bad guy with a gun, it takes a good guy with a gun," he says.

This dog recently lost its five pups.

Residents of the neighborhood gave the monkey to this dog to nurse.

And the dog nursed it.

Now, months later, the two are inseparable.

But local residents called police because the monkey would become aggressive when people approached.

Police have taken custody of the animals in efforts to separate them and send the monkey back into the wild.

But some animal experts have expressed concern about the animals being separated, as the monkey could be rejected by its species in the wild.

North Korea cancelled meeting with Mike Pence

2018-02-21    0 views
North Korea made a last minute cancellation to a meeting with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence at the Winter Games, Pence’s office said on Feb. 20.

Pence was scheduled to meet with Pyongyang officials, including Kim Jong Un’s sister, on Feb. 10, a day after the Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony.

But according to officials, North Korea cancelled 2 hours before the meeting was set to start.

In the days before, Pence had just condemned North Korean human rights abuses and announced plans for new sanctions.

After the cancelled meeting, U.S. officials issued a statement.

“This administration will stand in the way of Kim’s desire to whitewash their murderous regime with nice photo ops at the Olympics. Perhaps that’s why they walked away from a meeting or perhaps they were never sincere about sitting down,” Pence‘s chief of staff, Nick Ayers, said in a statement.

Signs of a thaw in relations between the two Koreas has sparked speculation of a lead-up to direct talks between Washington and Pyongyang, after months of tension and heated exchanges between President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un.

North Korea has held off from carrying out any weapons tests since November, when it shot off its largest intercontinental ballistic missile yet.

Game Warden Captures Flightless Bald Eagle With Injured Wing

A game warden captured a wounded bald eagle in northeastern Oklahoma in mid February and brought it in for a medical evaluation, where it was found that the bird had likely been shot with a rifle and that part of the its wing needed to be amputated.

The bird can be seen in this video released on February 19 trying to evade the game warden but appears to no longer be able to fly. The warden then wraps the eagle in a cloth and loads it onto the back of a truck.

The bird was taken to a wildlife rehabilitation center where an examination showed a wound, consistent with a rifle shot, that required that part of the wing be amputated. The game wardens said that the bird would likely survive, but would be unable to fly again.

Local news sources reported that veterinarians at the Tulsa Zoo were treating the eagle, which they are calling “Gentry”.

Oklahoma Game Wardens said that the eagle was “likely shot near where it was found” and were asking for information on the incident.

US Postal Service worker was found fatally shot inside a mail truck along a busy highway in Dallas on Monday, and investigators are treating the case as a homicide, according to police.

Officers found the worker's body inside the government vehicle around 2:30 a.m. after responding to a reported shooting along Interstate 30 just west of downtown, according to a statement released by Dallas police.

Sr. Cpl. DeMarquis Black said no arrests have been made, and investigators are still trying to determine a possible motive behind the shooting. The victim's name hasn't been released.

The US Postal Service operates two large mail sorting and processing complexes nearby, according to Amanda McMurrey, an inspector with the US Postal Inspection Service, the law enforcement and security arm of the USPS.

Requests sent to the USPS for details about the employee were referred to the inspection service. McMurrey had no immediate information on the employee's route, but she said it isn't unusual for a postal service worker to be on the job before dawn.

Accused shooter's neighbors sensed something amiss with Cruz from a young age

Residents of the idyllic South Florida neighborhood where accused Florida school shooter once lived recalled on Thursday (February 15) Nikolas Cruz acting strange even as a child.

Cruz lived in a beige, stucco house with his adoptive mother before she passed away in November, leading him to move in with another family who allowed the 19-year-old to keep his AR-15 locked in a safe despite his checkered past.

"I saw him in the back yard and he looked like he had a bb gun, I wasn't really sure, and I was pretty young so I told my mom and I said "mom it looks like he's shooting at something," said neighbor Sophie Speno, "The people who live behind us they have chickens and he was shooting at the chickens so my mom called the cops and they were great they came and took care of it and we didn't have to deal with it after that."

The Feb. 14 shooting left 17 dead among them students and teachers at the highly ranked public high school in what is widely considered to be one of South Florida's safest, most attractive places live. Cruz made a first appearance in a South Florida court on Thursday and was held without bond. For some, his behavior didn't come as a total shock.

"He'd steal other neighbors' mail, the cops were always at his house, he actually egged my car one time and we went out to go find out who did it and he was hiding in a bush and started pelting eggs at my friend and we chased him down," said Brody Speno, 19, who once walked home from the bus every day with Cruz after school.

"He's always been causing trouble."

Cruz legally purchased the assault rifle used in the killings and may have foreshadowed the attack in a social media comment investigated by the FBI last year, authorities said on Thursday.

French zoo welcomes baby rhino one year after poaching incident

France's Thoiry Zoo proudly showed their baby rhinoceros on Feb. 14, a welcome addition to the wildlife park one year after their four-year-old rhino was slaughtered by poachers.

The three-year-old male named Unesco arrived at the zoo, situated near Paris, on January 25.

Unesco, a wild white rhino, came from the Peaugres Safari in southern France, who baptised it as such after the nearby Pont d'Arc Cavern was recognised as a UNESCO heritage site.

Unesco's arrival at the zoo came less than a year after a rare white rhinoceros named Vince was killed in March 2017 by poachers who broke into the park. Authorities have not identified the perpetrators and the incident is still under investigation.

Unesco gets along with the park's two other white rhinos, zoo staff said, and security measures have been reinforced since Vince's killing to ensure the safety of more than 800 animals living in the park.

Wild white rhinos are on the brink of extinction, since their horns are often coveted by poachers, with a kilo of rhino horn fetching 51,000 euros ($53,900) on the black market in 2015, according to a statement from the zoo.

Only 20,000 white rhinos currently thrive in the wild, according to conservation group Save the Rhino.

Thoiry Zoo will re-open on Feb. 17 after its scheduled winter closure.

The federal environmental protection agency reports that 54 of the marine mammals came onshore in the area of La Paz Bay. Workers attended to the dolphins and saved 33 of them, but 21 died.

The agency said Tuesday in a statement that they were short-beaked common dolphins. Marine experts believe an attack by a group of bottlenose dolphins provoked the mass beaching.

Dozens of dolphins washed up on the rocks and lined up in the sand, overseen by white-coated personnel who measured them and collected information.
