Syrian forces find 'two Isil mass graves outside Raqqa'

Sat, 12/30/2017 - 04:47

Syrian forces find 'two Isil mass graves outside Raqqa'Two mass graves containing dozens of bodies of civilians and Syrian troops killed by Islamic State jihadists have been found in the west of Raqa province, state news agency SANA reported Friday. The bodies were discovered based on information provided by residents near Wawi in the west of the province, which borders Turkey. It said they had been executed. Recovery operations were expected to last several days "due to the huge area of the two mass graves", SANA quoted a source from the Syrian civil defence as saying. It was not immediately clear when they had been killed, other than while Islamic State controlled the northerly province, SANA said. The Islamic State group, which proclaimed a "caliphate" over swathes of Syria and Iraq in 2014, has now lost almost all the land it once controlled. It has been held responsible for multiple atrocities during its reign of terror, including mass executions and decapitations. In December 2014, the bodies of 230 people executed by Islamic State were found in a mass grave in the eastern province of Deir Ezzor. Another 200 civilians, including women and children, were killed by the group in June 2015 in the city of Kobane.

Reporters face obstacle run in corruption-hit Bulgaria

Fri, 12/29/2017 - 18:48

Reporters face obstacle run in corruption-hit BulgariaCartoonist Hristo Komarnitski and his colleagues had no illusions: launching a satirical journal was always going to be tricky in Bulgaria, new holder of the EU presidency but also ranked as the bloc's worst press freedom violator. As Bulgaria prepares to take the rotating EU helm on January 1, its press industry is mired in "corruption and collusion between media, politicians, and oligarchs," according to Reporters Without Borders (RSF). Since joining the bloc a decade ago, Bulgaria has tumbled down in the annual RSF press freedom ranking from sharing the 35th place with France in 2006 to 109th out of 180 countries in 2017 -- by far the worst placed EU member state.

Someone swapped photos of Trump with his animatronic, and plz let my mom know I am dead

Someone swapped photos of Trump with his animatronic, and plz let my mom know I am deadThis photoshop says a thousand words, all of which are "help." For Twitter user's @Bornmiserable's latest creation, he swapped photos of the real Trump with his now legendary Disney animatronic figure. The result was just as upsetting as you always imagined it would be. SEE ALSO: Disney's new weapon in the war on Netflix: Hulu @BornMiserable says it's an improvement, which I cannot independently verify as this image has turned me into stone. "I've done several Trump Photoshops and when I saw that animatronic figure, I just thought it would make more sense to put it in place of him — just about as much of a human being as he is," @BornMiserable told Mashable.

Critics accused the artist of modeling Trump after a Chucky Doll and/or Hillary Clinton, which is both fair and accurate.

This is just a necessary and painful fact we all need to deal with. pic.twitter.com/biSirfwE59 — Shannon O'Neill (@spotastic) December 19, 2017 Frankly, I'd take the animatronic over the real one.

Save the bees: Inside a bee sanctuary's fight to save colonies – and the world's food supply – from collapse

Fri, 12/29/2017 - 15:03

 Inside a bee sanctuary's fight to save colonies – and the world's food supply – from collapseOn a seven-acre plot of land in upstate New York, an expansive lawn juts up behind a brown cottage, gently sloping down into the woods. “It’s like a desert,” Guillaume Gauthereau, the founder and executive director of the New York Bee Sanctuary, said this past August, gesturing to the lush grass as those same bees swirled around. The difference at the sanctuary, however, is that Gauthereau has carefully cultivated a habitat full of vegetation around that grass that gives bees the opportunity to thrive.

Court refuses to release elephants from zoo after campaigners say they are 'persons entitled to liberty'A Connecticut court has refused to free three elephants from a zoo after an animal rights group asked it to do so. The court ruled that Minnie, Beulah, and Karen do not qualify as “persons entitled to liberty and equality” under state law. Judge James Bentivegna wrote in the decision that “the petition is wholly frivolous on its face” because it relied on applying “human rights of freedom and equality” to the animals.

Road rage finally puts alleged 'Goodfellas' mobster, 82, behind barsNew York may have recorded a dramatic fall in crime this year, including the lowest annual murder total since the 1950s, but a sentencing hearing in Brooklyn on Thursday revealed the persistence of some of the city’s most famous criminal traditions. Prosecutors allege that Vincent Asaro, 82, was inducted into the Bonanno crime syndicate more than 40 years ago and has held the position of captain and been a member of the family’s ruling panel. On Thursday, however, Asaro was sentenced to eight years in prison for his part in a road rage incident in the mob stronghold of Howard Beach, Queens.
