 "Overwhelming." "Excruciating pain."When the Taser’s electrified darts struck him, Carl Bryan felt a shooting pain up his back that rattled his whole body, shaking his brain like a “peanut in a jar.” “If you were to shake that jar a hundred times as fast as you can and multiply that by a thousand,” he said. For Christa Keeton, getting shocked by Taser barbs felt like bees “crawling” through her skin. Eligio Torres Jr. likened the Taser’s electrical jolt to a “horrific electrical current just flowing through your body.” “You’re just shaking,” Torres said in court testimony.

Oil up 2 percent despite U.S. crude build; set for best third quarter since 2004By Julia Simon NEW YORK (Reuters) - Oil prices settled up 2 percent on Wednesday despite a rise in U.S. crude inventories, with the market heading for its largest third-quarter gain in 13 years after the Iraqi oil minister said OPEC and its partners were considering extending or deepening output cuts.

U.S. crude oil stockpiles jumped last week as imports and production increased, the U.S. Energy Information Administration said, as operations resumed from the impact of Hurricane Harvey which hit the Gulf Coast on Aug. 25.

U.S. home sales hit 12-month low, Harvey weighs on HoustonBy Lucia Mutikani WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. home resales fell to their lowest in a year in August as Hurricane Harvey depressed activity in Houston and a persistent shortage of properties on the market sidelined buyers. The third straightly monthly decline in sales reported by the National Association of Realtors on Wednesday came on the heels of data on Tuesday showing a drop in homebuilding activity in August. The reports suggest housing will probably weigh on economic growth again in the third quarter.

Yahoo Animals and Pets - Wed, 09/20/2017 - 11:10

Ringleader of pirate gang that killed British adventurer shot dead in gun battleOne of the men suspected of murdering British canoeist Emma Kelty in the Amazon jungle last week has been shot dead. Brazilian police said that 24-year-old Evanilson Gomes da Costa, known as “Baia”, was shot twice in the early hours of Wednesday morning at his home in the remote town of Coari and then died in hospital. Evanilson Gomes da Costa, known as “Baia” Credit: Brazilian Police They believe that a member of another gang of pirates went after da Costa to steal the valuables he had robbed from Miss Kelty, including mobile telephones, a tablet, a GoPro camera and a drone. Police said that before dying in hospital da Costa identified the man who shot him. They are currently trying to locate the suspect, who is already known to local police. Emma Kelty Credit: Twitter/Emt101s Police believe that da Costa was the leader of the local gang of pirates responsible for killing Miss Kelty. A police spokeswoman said: “After killing Emma and stealing her money and possessions, the suspects celebrated and drew a lot of attention to themselves. Other criminals came looking for them.” So in or near coari (100km away) i will have my boat stolen and i will be killed too. Nice ������— Emma Tamsin Kelty (@Emt101s) September 10, 2017 A 17-year-old boy has allegedly confessed in custody that on the night of Wednesday 13 September, members of da Costa’s gang shot Miss Kelty twice with a sawn-off shotgun and then dumped her body in the river. Two other members of the gang have also been arrested. The police are hunting for three other men linked with the attack and are trying to track down the stolen goods. Turned corner and found 50 guys in motor boats with arrows!!! My face mist hve been a picture!! (Town was uber quiet... too quiet!!) all go…— Emma Tamsin Kelty (@Emt101s) September 12, 2017 The Brazilian Navy and rescue services are continuing to search for Miss Kelty’s body. The search for Miss Kelty was launched after she triggered a distress signal at about the same time as the attack is believed to have occurred. Her kayak was discovered on a lawless stretch of beach along with some of her belongings. Three days before she was last heard from, Miss Kelty wrote on Facebook on September 10: “So in or near coari (100km away) i will have my boat stolen and i will be killed too. Nice.”


Obama: It's 'Frustrating' To Have To Convince Lawmakers Not To Inflict 'Real Human Suffering'

Yahoo Animals and Pets - Wed, 09/20/2017 - 11:03

 It's 'Frustrating' To Have To Convince Lawmakers Not To Inflict 'Real Human Suffering'Former President Barack Obama said it’s “frustrating to have to mobilize” so often to keep lawmakers from repealing the Affordable Care Act. Speaking at a Gates Foundation event on Wednesday, Obama addressed a health care bill Republicans are trying to hurry through Congress that could have major ramifications for millions of people. “When I see people trying to undo that hard-earned progress for the 50th or 60th time, with bills that would raise costs or reduce coverage, or roll back protections for older Americans or people with pre-existing conditions ... for whom coverage would, once again, be almost unobtainable, it is aggravating,” Obama said.
