How HIMARS launchers are shifting momentum in Ukraine's fight against Russia


It's been a standard, largely-unnoticed part of the American military arsenal for decades. But when HIMARS (an acronym which stands for High Mobility Artillery Rocket System) showed up in Ukraine, it changed the face of battle. "This capability has given the Ukrainians the potential to completely change the momentum and the direction of this war," said retired Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges, former commander of the U.S. Army in Europe.

He said HIMARS, which fires a 200-pound warhead up to 50 miles and hits within 10 feet of its intended target, has virtually eliminated Russia's numerical advantage.

"You don't have to have hundreds of artillery rounds to achieve the same effect as one rocket fired...More

World’s Deadliest Roads in Focus After Billionaire’s Fatal Crash

World’s Deadliest Roads in Focus After Billionaire’s Fatal Crash

The car accident over the weekend that killed Cyrus Mistry -- scion of one of India’s best-known business families -- has reignited concerns about the poor state of India’s roads, identified by the World Bank as the world’s deadliest.

Mistry, who was 54, died on Sunday during a trip between Ahmedabad and Mumbai after the car he was in hit a divider on a bridge. Images circulating on social media showed skid-marks of a Mercedes veering off the road just next to a pothole. Airbags in the rear didn’t inflate.

While India has built the world’s second-biggest road network...More

'Japa': Emigration beguiles middle classes in troubled Nigeria

Ayo Aroloye was holding his newborn son when a power cut plunged the delivery room of the Lagos hospital into darkness.

The 34-year-old had to turn on his phone's torch so that the doctor who was about to stitch up his wife could see what he was doing.

Even though he earned an above-average salary as a banker, Aroloye saw the traumatic event as a sign that his country was broken.

"The Nigerian dream died in me," he said.

Like many other Nigerians, Aroloye decided it was time to "japa" -- a word in the Yoruba language that means "to flee."

After a two-year wait to get...More

Why the US is becoming more brazen with its Ukraine support

The Biden administration is arming Ukraine with weapons that can do serious damage to Russian forces, and, unlike early in the war, U.S. officials don’t appear worried about Moscow’s reaction.

In the past several months, Washington has detailed tranches of new drones, harder-hitting missiles and deadly rocket systems as part of billions of dollars pledged to the former Soviet country. The clear support is a far cry from the early days of the war, when the U.S. government seemed hesitant to list exactly what was being sent into Ukraine so as not to tip off or draw the ire of Moscow.

Afghanistan's scars from 20 years of war are deep. Many Afghans blame the Americans.

It's been a year since the last U.S. troops were pulled out of Afghanistan after 20 years of war. But while the battles have ended, there are still outbreaks of violence, including a bomb attack outside the Russian Embassy in Kabul on Monday morning.

A spokesman for the Kabul police, Khalid Zardan, said at least one person was killed and 10 more injured in the blast while. Russia's Foreign Ministry, however, said in a statement that two members of the embassy staff at been killed in the attack, which no group immediately claimed responsibility for.

Despite the sporadic attacks — many of them targeting Afghanistan's Taliban rulers — the overall level of violence across the country...More

Brendan Fraser is having a moment at the Venice International Film Festival.

The once ubiquitous movie star of "The Mummy" franchise and "George of the Jungle" had, in the last decade, backed away from the spotlight. But Fraser is charting what could be a major comeback starting with his transformative role in Darren Aronofsky's "The Whale," which had its world premiere Sunday night at the festival.

A 28-year-old woman was arrested last week after she was accused of skipping a restaurant tab, a police report obtained by local media said.

Hend Bustami reportedly said officers arrested her because they had "never seen anyone as good looking" as her and accused them of harassing her, according to 8 News Now.

The news outlet reported that police records show Bustami faces a charge of violating airport conduct after she was accused of leaving a Chili's restaurant inside Harry Reid International Airport...More

William Ruto: From chicken hawker to Kenya's president-elect

Kenya's president-elect William Ruto is one of the country's wealthiest men but has long portrayed himself as "hustler-in-chief" -- the champion of the poor and downtrodden.

Defying corruption allegations going back years, the ambitious 55-year-old clawed his way to the centre of power by playing on his religious faith and humble beginnings selling chickens by the roadside.

Ruto's narrow victory in the August 9 election was upheld by the Supreme Court in a unanimous ruling on Monday.

He had painted his election duel against former prime minister Raila Odinga as a battle between ordinary...More

Liz Truss officially became Britain's new prime minister on Tuesday after Boris Johnson formally resigned to Queen Elizabeth II at her home in Balmoral, Scotland, and the monarch accepted Truss as the new leader, inviting her to form a government. The process was largely a formality, to make official the results of an internal power struggle in one of Britain's main political parties.

An Irish teacher was put in prison after he refused to use “gender-neutral” pronouns, telling the judge he would continue going to the school to teach despite a court order barring him from the premises.

Enoch Burke was temporarily suspended on full pay from the Wilson’s Hospital School after refusing a request from the principal to address a transgender student by “they” instead of “he,” according to Irish outlet Independent.ie.

Small Town TX Coffee Shop Giving Free Contraception Kits to Anyone Who Wants Them, Even Teens


A coffee shop in a small Texas town has teamed up with abortion advocates to give away emergency contraception kits to teens who reportedly can't get parental consent.

Tumbleweed + Sage Coffeehouse located in Wolfforth, a suburb of Lubbock, has partnered with Jane's Due Process, a pro-choice group advocating for abortion rights for teens, according to The Texas Tribune and the coffeehouse's website. The coffee shop is reportedly giving out Plan B emergency contraception pills to anyone who wants them.

Plan B is an emergency contraceptive that can prevent pregnancy, but some pro-life groups contend it could be abortive in some cases.

Spain's controversial bull-running festivals have once again hit the headlines after a deadly summer in which at least 10 people lost their lives, exacerbating divisions over the centuries-old tradition. Seven deaths occurred in the eastern Valencia region where the practice of releasing bulls into the streets for entertainment has sparked debate, with the other fatalities taking place in the regions of Madrid, Castilla y Leon and Navarra in the north.

Teacher jailed for contempt of court after refusing to use student's gender-neutral pronouns

Teacher jailed for contempt of court after refusing to use student's gender-neutral pronouns

A teacher in Ireland was jailed this week for violating a court order forbidding him from going to the school where he works, after he was put on administrative leave during disciplinary proceedings over his refusal to use a student's new name and gender-neutral pronouns, Ireland's state broadcaster reported.

In May, when a student at a secondary school in County Westmeath said they wanted to transition, Enoch Burke, who teaches German, history, politics and debate, reportedly refused to use their name and pronouns, RTE said.

When Burke, along with other school staff, was asked by the school's principal to use the pronoun "they" to refer to the student, Burke said that it went...More

The ‘Calvine Photo,’ The World’s Clearest UFO Picture, Has Resurfaced After Being Lost For 32 Years

The ‘Calvine Photo,’ The World’s Clearest UFO Picture, Has Resurfaced After Being Lost For 32 Years
Sheffield Hallam University/Craig Lindsay | The “Calvine photo” was taken by two Scottish hikers and clearly shows a diamond-shaped flying object.

On August 4, 1990 two hikers in Calvine, Scotland looked to the sky and saw a large, diamond-shaped flying object. The hikers quickly snapped six photos of the UFO, but the photos were never made public.

As The Mirror reported, the hikers handed the photo negatives to Scotland’s Daily Record newspaper — which then sent them to the British Ministry of Defense.

At that point, the photographs disappeared. According to British journalist David Clarke, “The negatives have never been seen since they reached the Ministry of Defense. Now, the Ministry of Defense say that they...More

Scientists In England May Have Solved The ‘Cold Case’ Of 17 People Who Were Thrown Down A Well 800 Years Ago

Scientists In England May Have Solved The ‘Cold Case’ Of 17 People Who Were Thrown Down A Well 800 Years Ago
Giles Emery/NPS Archaeology | The bodies were discovered in an odd arrangement, suggesting they had not been buried but thrown in head first.

In 2004, the construction of a new shopping mall in Norwich, England, turned up a tangle of bones at the bottom of an 800-year-old medieval well. Based on their positioning, researchers determined that they’d been tossed in head-first. Now, thanks to DNA analysis, researchers have a better idea of who those people were — and how they may have died.

As a new study published in the Current Biology scientific journal explains, researchers extracted genetic material from six of the 17 bodies and studied their DNA. They found that those six people were “almost certainly” Ashkenazi Jews and that four of the six were related.

“It’s...More

85-Year-Old Florida Man Arrested After Trying To Buy A Child In A Grocery Store For $100,000
Port Orange Police Department/Facebook | Hellmuth Kolb had been put on the sex offender registry in 2018 for false imprisonment of a child under age 13.

Police in Port Orange, Florida arrested an 85-year-old man on Aug. 16, 2022, after he attempted to buy an eight-year-old girl in a local Winn-Dixie.

As reported by the Washington Examiner, Hellmuth Kolb approached the girl’s mother, Lauren Benning, and began asking her questions about her daughter.

At first, Benning said, she just assumed Kolb was lonely.

“He just came up, and he started making comments about how pretty she was and how good her dancing was and how he could never have children, and he wanted children,” she said.

Her opinion changed,...More

Charles Osborne, The Man Who Hiccuped Nonstop For 68 Years

Charles Osborne, The Man Who Hiccuped Nonstop For 68 Years
Twitter/Seriously Strange | Charles Osborne had the hiccups from June 13, 1922 to June 5, 1990.

Everyone has experienced hiccups at some point in their life. The involuntary diaphragm contractions can even start in the womb. But few have faced hiccups that lasted for days, months, or years. Charles Osborne, however, had the hiccups for decades.

In 1922, the Iowa man started hiccuping — and he didn’t stop for 68 years.

Over the years, Osborne tried everything to get rid of his pesky condition. He even resorted to experimental hormone therapy, but it seemed that nothing could cure him.

But one day in 1990, when Osborne was 96 years old, his hiccups suddenly stopped. He died just a year later, and doctors never did figure out precisely what caused his lifelong...More

Chinese man gets trapped aloft in hydrogen balloon for 2 days, traveling 200 miles. He was trying to collect pine nuts from a tree.




Chinese state media say a man has been found safe after he spent two days aloft in a hydrogen balloon, traveling about 200 miles, after it became untethered and flew away while he was using it to harvest pine nuts from a tree.



The man, identified only by his surname, Hu, and a partner were collecting pine nuts on Sunday in a forest park in Heilongjiang province in northeastern China when they lost control and the balloon sailed off.



The other person jumped to the ground, and a search was launched for the escaped balloon and Hu.

Muslim domestic workers in India changing names out of fear

India’s domestic workers in general face caste-based discrimination and violence, but Muslims are further marginalised.

Munni Begum was 10 when her mother made her drop her last name. At that time, she did not understand why. She often accompanied her mother and grandmother as they juggled multiple cleaning, cooking and caregiving jobs in the Indian capital, New Delhi.

But it was only when Begum, now in her late 50s, started doing domestic work herself that she learned that all the women in her family had to pick up Hindu-sounding names at their workplaces in order to survive.

“They just won’t hire us,” she told Al Jazeera. “They hated us Muslims. Some of them...More

Nearly 1 in 4 Democratic Voters Believe 'Men Can Get Pregnant': New Poll

Nearly 1 in 4 Democratic Voters Believe 'Men Can Get Pregnant': New Poll

Nearly one in four Democrats and more than one-third of white, college-educated female Democrats believe "men can get pregnant," according to a new survey.

The poll by WPA Intelligence found that 22 percent of Democrats and 36 percent of white, college-educated Democratic women agree with the statement that "some men can get pregnant." That view was shared by 27 percent of self-described liberals and 29 percent of white Democratic voters.

"Overall, few Americans think men can get pregnant," said Conor Maguire, managing director of WPA Intelligence, according to the Daily Caller. "But with 36% of a core Democratic constituency (college-educated white Democratic women) and one out of five Democrat voters believing this, one can see why Democratic...More

Archie and Lillibet, the children of Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have become a prince and princess after the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. When they were born, the two children were too far down the line of succession to be given those titles under rules set out by King George V in 1917.

Archie was given the title Earl of Dumbarton when he was born. He could have had the title of lord, but his parents chose for...More

The passing of Queen Elizabeth II involves not only the transfer of the crown to her first son, Charles — now officially King Charles III — but also a shift of her personal wealth and the ownership in trust of a massive portfolio of assets that range from iconic castles to the Crown Jewels.

Queen Elizabeth II's 70-year reign spanned a period of huge wealth creation across the globe, when new businesses sprang up in the decades after World War II. But much of her wealth is tied up in tangible assets that haven't exactly appreciated like the stocks of Microsoft...More

Queen Elizabeth II: Why she will be missed

Her death, even at 96, still came as a seismic shock, not so much that Queen Elizabeth II was gone, but that her decades of stability and continuity were suddenly gone, too.

There are few alive today who remember a time without Queen Elizabeth. She was there during the Cold War, through the age of Twiggy and The Beatles, through wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. She adjusted to social media; she weathered Brexit; she survived COVID.

In an address to the public at the beginning of the pandemic, she said, "I hope in the years to come, everyone will be able to take pride in how they responded to this challenge, and those who come after us will say the Britons of this generation were as strong as any."

The importance of King Charles shouldn't be underestimated despite the fact that the monarch in the United Kingdom is largely ceremonial, former British Prime Minister David Cameron said in an interview with "CBS Evening News" anchor and managing editor Norah O'Donnell.

The interview comes as King Charles III takes the throne in the United Kingdom after the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II. The queen's funeral is scheduled to be held on Sept. 19.

With its azure ocean views and terraced rice paddies, the city of Hamada, population 50,000, is far from Japan's major urban centers of Tokyo and Osaka. But Hamada is no digital slouch. Just like cities in other advanced nations, Hamada collects taxes, health insurance premiums and social security contributions from residents' bank accounts by sending invoice orders online to local financial institutions.

But in some respects, Hamada's transactions are a throwback to the 20th century. One of eight local banks the city administration does...More

Kangaroo kills man and blocks paramedics from reaching him; animal shot dead by Australian police

Kangaroo kills man and blocks paramedics from reaching him; animal shot dead by Australian police

A man who may have been keeping a wild kangaroo as a pet was killed by the animal in southwest Australia, police said Tuesday. It was reportedly the first fatal attack by a kangaroo in Australia since 1936.

A relative found the 77-year-old man with "serious injuries" on his property Sunday in semirural Redmond, 250 miles southeast of the Western Australia state capital Perth.

It was believed he had been attacked earlier in the day by the kangaroo, which police shot dead because it was preventing paramedics from reaching the injured man, police said.

"The kangaroo was posing an ongoing threat to emergency responders," the statement said.

The man died at the...More

A veteran Mexican drug lord convicted of the murder of a U.S. undercover agent has been granted house arrest due to his deteriorating health, authorities said Tuesday. Miguel Angel Felix Gallardo was considered Mexico's most powerful drug trafficker when he was arrested for the murder of U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agent Enrique "Kiki" Camarena in 1985.

Known as the "Boss of Bosses" ("Jefe de jefes"), the 76-year-old founder of the Guadalajara cartel has been in prison since 1989 and is blind in one eye and deaf in one ear.

As the U.K. observes an official period of mourning for Queen Elizabeth II, a number of arrests of protesters critical of the monarchy at public events in recent days have stoked simmering concerns over free speech in Great Britain.

In Oxford, England, 45-year-old Symon Hill said he was briefly detained Sunday and then let go by police after shouting "Who elected him?" during a proclamation ceremony for King Charles III. He said he was handcuffed and driven home by...More

A 21-year-old sailor was laid to rest Tuesday following a decades-long effort to identify remains pulled from Pearl Harbor, more than 80 years after he was killed in the attack that propelled the United States into World War II.

Members of Herbert “Bert” Jacobson's family waited all their lives to attend a memorial for the young man they knew about but never met. Jacobson was among the more than 400 sailors and Marines killed on the USS Oklahoma during the Dec. 7, 1941, Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

The casket containing his remains was carried Tuesday morning on a horse-drawn caisson led by a military...More

Are Drag Queens 'What America Is all About'?

Are Drag Queens 'What America Is all About'?

The Emmy Awards were held last night. Among the honorees: Zendaya won best lead actress in a drama series for HBO’s Euphoria, which is so sexualized and graphic that even Common Sense Media’s review is forced to use descriptions I will not repeat here. The same goes for their review of HBO’s The White Lotus, which won for outstanding limited series. I could go on.

When a political leader claims that drag queens are “what America is all about,” transgender characters are increasingly featured in video games and on television, and a Texas teacher tells students to refer to pedophiles as “minor-attracted persons,” it is clear that our moral compass is not just broken but nonexistent.

Australia’s Margaret Court, winner of twenty-four Grand Slam singles titles, made news during the recent US...More

Justices Side With LGBTQ Group At Jewish University, For Now

Justices Side With LGBTQ Group At Jewish University, For Now

The Supreme Court has cleared the way for an LGBTQ group to gain official recognition from a Jewish university in New York, though that may not last.

By a 5-4 vote Wednesday, the justices lifted a temporary hold on a court order that requires Yeshiva University to recognize the group, the YU Pride Alliance, even as a legal fight continues in New York courts.

Two conservatives, Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh, sided with the court's three liberal justices to form a majority.

The disagreement among the justices appears to be mostly about procedure, with the majority writing in a brief unsigned order that Yeshiva should return to state court to seek quick review and temporary relief while the case...More

London Marathon will include nonbinary option for next year's race

Following the footsteps of the Boston Marathon, the London Marathon will include a nonbinary option for runners registering in next year's race for the first time in its history, organizers announced Wednesday.

Applicants for the TCS London Marathon Ballot, a random draw that gives spots in the race, will see the nonbinary option when it opens on October 1. The option will extend to mass-participation runners as well.

The change comes after an extensive review and consultation period by marathon officials as well as efforts to make the event the most "diverse, equitable and inclusive marathon in the world," organizers said.

Hugh Brasher, the event director for the London Marathon, said in...More

Queen Elizabeth II's coffin left Buckingham Palace at exactly 2:22 p.m. Here's why.

Queen Elizabeth II left Buckingham Palace for the final time on Wednesday as her coffin was escorted through Central London to lie in state at Westminster Hall. The queen's coffin left the palace precisely at 2:22 p.m. local time – and for a very specific reason.

Biographer, historian and Wall Street Journal columnist Amanda Foreman told CBS News that the procession left the palace at that time so that the coffin would arrive at Westminster Hall, where the queen will lie in state until her funeral on Monday, at 3 p.m.

"They timed it using a drum which beats 75 beats per minute, which enabled them to arrive at 3 p.m.," Foreman said. "The time of 3 p.m. wasn't itself significant, but...More

Queen Elizabeth II began lying in state on Wednesday and will continue to do so until her funeral on Monday morning. The queen is the first person in the U.K. to be honored this way in 20 years.

When someone lies in state, their coffin is placed in a viewing area so the public can pay their respects. In the U.K., a king or queen, a current or past queen consort and sometimes a former prime minister can lie in state ahead of their funerals.

In 2002, an estimated 200,000 paid their respects to the...More

Tough times have begun one day after Kenya's new president was sworn in

Tough times have begun one day after Kenya's new president was sworn in

For many Kenyans, life was unbearable during former president Uhuru Kenyatta’s reign. But just one day after new president William Ruto’s inauguration, life is getting more onerous, after the lifting of a fuel subsidy that had kept the price of petrol, diesel and kerosene the lowest in eastern Africa.

“On fuel subsidy alone, taxpayers have spent a total of $1.2 billion [since 2020],” Ruto said during his inauguration before projecting that if it continues till June next year, it will cost Kenyans $2.4 billion. To cushion manufacturers and processors against high production costs, the government has spent $74 million in fuel subsides since April last year.

The move is seen as Ruto bowing to pressure from the International Monetary Fund, which in July...More

The United States may regard itself as a “leader of the free world,” but an index of development released in July 2022 places the country much farther down the list.

In its global rankings, the United Nations Office of Sustainable Development dropped the U.S. to 41st worldwide, down from its previous ranking of 32nd. Under this methodology – an expansive model of 17 categories, or “goals,” many of them focused on the environment and equity – the U.S. ranks between Cuba and Bulgaria. Both are widely regarded as developing countries.

Why Instagram Finally Shut Down PornHub's Account

Why Instagram Finally Shut Down PornHub's Account

A group that fights against sexual exploitation is applauding Instagram for removing PornHub from its platform after advocating for its removal for nearly three years.

"Instagram is courageously choosing to stop partnering with Pornhub and it is time for all corporate entities to follow its example," said Dawn Hawkins, CEO of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE).

In 2019, the NCOSE along with several international advocates and survivors called on the social media platform to remove Pornhub with its #WakeUpInstagram campaign.

The group said the platform helped facilitate "child sexual abuse, sex trafficking, and the grooming of young children." Leaders also met with executives to make concrete changes on the platform.

At just 15 years old, Chloe Cole underwent a surgery that radically changed her life: She had a double mastectomy after taking puberty blockers, believing she was a transgender male born in the wrong body.

Forbes initially published an article critical of the now-18-year-old Cole, who has spoken out about the dangers of body-altering surgeries for children and teenagers. The outlet has since removed the story, written by transgender writer Dawn Ennis, from its website.

Ennis, a male who identifies as female, originally wrote the piece for the Los Angeles Blade, a pro-LGBT website. It was republished to Forbes on Sunday and immediately drew criticism for content many readers believed to be factually...More

A giant fireball was seen shooting across the U.K. sky. Here's what meteorologists think it was.

Hundreds of people across the United Kingdom had front-row seats to an exciting mystery that literally went right over their heads on Wednesday night. A massive fireball shot across the sky, puzzling hundreds of people across Scotland, Ireland and England.

The fast-moving fireball was caught on several cameras at around 10 p.m. local time. Some witnesses described it as looking green while videos showed it surrounded by a wide-ranging flashing aura as it bolted across the clouds.

For Steve Owens, an astronomer and science communicator at the Glasgow Science Centre, the sighting was "incredible," he told BBC.

Queen Elizabeth II had an unlikely friendship with a California cowboy

Improbably and indelibly, Monty Roberts became Queen Elizabeth II's horseman and more.

The queen, who had a lifelong love of horses, invited the California cowboy to her stables at Windsor Castle in 1989. Roberts had revolutionized horse training by taming horses using the silent language of kindness.

"I thought she was a groom," Roberts told CBS News of the meeting. "And I said, 'Nice to meet you.' I stepped back and I went, 'Oh my God. Oh, you're the queen.' And she said, 'Yes, last time I checked.'"

From there came handwritten letters and annual Christmas greetings throughout their three-decade friendship. Roberts said Queen Elizabeth treated him like a younger brother.

Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II on Sept. 8, the U.K. entered a period of mourning. Traditionally, this period would last 12 days. However, in this case, King Charles III has ordered the mourning period for his mother to last until seven days after the her funeral, which is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 19.

While there is no federal requirement from the British government to do so, several organizations, programs and businesses are opting to shut down on that day.

After a nearly 70-year absence, cheetahs have returned to India. Eight of the world's fastest land animals were flown to central India from Namibia, Africa, on Saturday as part of a project titled "Project Cheetah."

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi was there to welcome the cheetahs and to release the first one into the park.

"A long wait is over, the Cheetahs have a home in India at the Kuno National Park," the prime minister tweeted.

According to the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF), three Namibian male and five female adult cheetahs were flown in a special plane with a tiger design. The organizations said each cat is between two and five-and-a-half-years-old.

Something seems to have happened to the new King Charles. He's been unable to get out of a car without heading directly to the waiting crowd, as if he were a politician seeking votes. And in a way – even though kings aren't elected – he is.

Charles III has been on a bit of a charm offensive, said correspondent Mark Phillips.

"We're definitely seeing a lightening of the monarchy, a search for more approachability," said royal historian Robert Lacey. "I think the big change is in the attitude of the public and the willingness to forgive Charles' faults that in the past were criticized."

International soccer star David Beckham said he waited for over 12 hours alongside other members of the public on Friday to pay his respects to the late Queen Elizabeth II.

"I grew up in a household of royalists, and I was brought up that way," Beckham told British broadcast ITV News from the line. As he was giving the interview, he kept moving forward as the line snaked towards Westminster Hall.

"I get told off if I hold the line up," Beckham said.

Early Friday, the wait to visit the queen lying in state was so long that the line was temporarily paused for six hours.

Trail of slime leads customs officials to stash of almost 100 giant snails

German customs officials say a trail of slime led them to a stash of almost 100 giant African land snails and other items hidden inside bags at Duesseldorf Airport this month.

In a statement Friday, authorities said officials stumbled over one of the snails on a baggage truck and initially thought it was a toy until it started moving. By following the trail left by the 8-inch snail, they found a bag with a hole, with another snail already peeping out of it — possibly preparing a dash for freedom.

In total, officials found six bags containing 93 giant snails, 62 pounds of fish and smoked meat, and a suitcase full of rotting meat. All had...More

Once-in-a-lifetime discovery: Ancient burial cave found on beach in Israel looks like an Indiana Jones film set

Israeli archaeologists on Sunday announced the "once-in-a-lifetime" discovery of a burial cave from the time of ancient Egyptian Pharaoh Rameses II, filled with dozens of pottery pieces and bronze artifacts.

The cave was uncovered on a beach Tuesday, when a mechanical digger working at the Palmahim national park hit its roof, with archaeologists using a ladder to descend into the spacious, man-made square cave.

In a video released by the Israel Antiquities Authority, amazed archaeologists shine flashlights on dozens of pottery vessels in a variety of forms and sizes, dating back to the reign of the ancient Egyptian king who died in 1213 B.C.

Egypt unveiled Monday a sarcophagus of a senior royal official from over 3,200-years ago at the Saqqara archaeological site south of Cairo, the latest in a series of spectacular discoveries in the area.

A team of Egyptian archaeologists from Cairo University found the red granite sarcophagus of Ptah-em-uya, "a high-ranking official" under Rameses II, who ruled Egypt in the 13th century BC, the antiquities ministry said.

The ministry posted an image of the sarcophagus on Instagram.

Researchers have worked out an estimate for the number of ants crawling around Earth — and the total is "astounding."

Scientists at the University of Hong Kong say there are 20,000,000,000,000,000 — that's 20 quadrillion — of the critters around the globe. The combined weight of those ants is more than all of the wild birds and mammals on the planet.

The weight is also equal to about one-fifth of the total weight of humans. Scientists say the findings, published Monday in the peer-reviewed Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, are "conservative."

Ants are present in nearly all ecosystems around the planet,...More

William “Marc” Wilson, who was recently convicted of involuntary manslaughter for a shooting that he says was in self-defense against a racist attack on a Georgia highway, was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years in prison – the most time allowed under state law. His family and lawyers say the case reveals a racial double standard for “stand your ground” laws.

“If you put me in Marc’s shoes, there’s no way that I would've been prosecuted,” Wilson’s cousin, Chance Pridgen, who is white, told Yahoo News. “Odds are I would've been given a...More

Local media reports said the detained man had stood outside the consulate playing songs on a...More

Fetus is seen apparently smiling after mother eats carrots. FM6 is described by researchers as "cheek raiser" and FM12 as "lip-corner puller" RESEARCHERS AT DURHAM UNIVERSITY IN NORTHEAST ENGLAND

Fetuses are big fans of carrots but not leafy green vegetables -- and show it in their faces, scientists said in a new study published Thursday.

Researchers at Durham University in northeast England said the findings were the first direct evidence that babies react differently to various smells and tastes before they are born.

A team of scientists studied 4D ultrasound scans of 100 pregnant women and discovered that babies exposed to carrot flavors showed...More

When an undersea volcano erupted in Tonga in January, its watery blast was huge and unusual — and scientists are still trying to understand its impacts.

The volcano, known as Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai, shot millions of tons of water vapor high up into the atmosphere, according to a study published Thursday in the journal Science.

The researchers estimate the eruption, which dwarfed the power of the Hiroshima atomic bomb, raised the...More

More migrants are coming from dictatorships like Venezuela and Cuba

It took nearly a month for Fabricio Hoyos to make the dangerous and uncertain trek from Venezuela to the United States. But as he arrived at a migrant processing center recently, he had another long journey ahead: the process of seeking asylum.

CBS News national correspondent Manuel Bojoquez spoke to Hoyos at the migrant processing center, located in El Paso, Texas, where around 1,500 migrants are seen each day. About half of those being seen at the center are coming from Venezuela.

They are part of what U.S. Customs and Border Protection have called a "new wave" of migration. 157,921 people were encountered at borders nationwide last month, according to the agency — a 2.2%...More

TONGA GEOLOGICAL SERVICES

A volcano that erupted in the southwest Pacific Ocean has started to create a new island. On Sept. 10, a volcano erupted on Home Reef, an undersea mountain that is not usually visible. But as the volcano continued to erupt, a new island rose above the surface of the water, NASA's Earth Observatory said.

The seafloor ridge that stretches from New Zealand to Tonga has the highest density of underwater volcanoes in the entire world. About 11 hours after the volcano erupted, as lava continued to ooze out, a new island had formed and by Sept. 14, researchers with Tonga Geological Services, which is a government agency, estimated the area of...More

Cuba approves same-sex marriage in historic referendum: "Justice has been done"

Cuba approves same-sex marriage in historic referendum Justice has been done

Cuban voters have approved a historic new referendum that allows same-sex couples to marry and adopt in the country, the national election commission said on Monday.

Cubans ratified the referendum with more than 3.9 million votes (66.9%) in favor, National Electoral Council President Alina Balseiro Gutiérrez said, according to The Associated Press. Approximately 1.95 million voters (33.1%) opposed the measure, she said.

The 100-page referendum faced an unusual amount of resistance from the Cuban public, even though it was backed by the government, according to the AP. Elections in the nation, in which only the Communist party is permitted, regularly see victories of over 90%, the AP...More

Norwegian world chess champion Magnus Carlsen has confirmed that he pulled out of a recent tournament and quit during a match against Hans Niemann because he believes the 19-year-old American has been cheating.

Carlsen last week sent shockwaves across the chess world when he resigned after just one move during a match against Niemann in the Julius Baer Generation Cup. The move came just one week after the 31-year-old grandmaster withdrew from the Sinquefield Cup in the U.S. after losing to Niemann, who has admitted to cheating in online games in the past. Many speculated Carlsen's abrupt withdrawal was connected to the ongoing alleged...More

A Spanish judge on Tuesday approved a trial for Colombian pop singer Shakira on charges of tax fraud. Spanish prosecutors accused the entertainer in 2018 of failing to pay 14.5 million euros ($13.9 million) in taxes on income earned between 2012 and 2014.

Prosecutors are seeking an eight-year prison sentence and a hefty fine if she is found guilty of tax evasion.

Shakira, 45, has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and rejected a deal with authorities to avoid going to trial. Her public relations firm has said that she has already paid all that she owed and an...More

King Charles III's new royal cypher is revealed

King Charles III's new monogram was revealed Tuesday as the official period of mourning for his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, came to a close. The emblem, known as the king's cypher, will appear on government buildings, state documents and some post boxes in the coming months and years.

It features the initial C intertwined with the letter R for Rex, the Latin word for king. The Roman numeral III sits in the center of the R and a crown hovers above the letters.

The symbol was selected from a series of designs prepared by the College of Arms, a 500-year-old body that oversees the issuance of new coats of arms and other aspects of heraldry in England. A Scottish version of the cypher features the Scottish Crown, and was...More

Gibraltar sells Russian oligarch's yacht for $37.5 million


Gibraltar on Tuesday sold a superyacht belonging to Russian oligarch Dmitry Pumpyansky for $37.5 million following its seizure in March under Ukraine war sanctions, judicial authorities said.

Gibraltar's Admiralty Marshal, a specialist British maritime court that handles the sale of ships, did not release the buyer's name.

The 72-metre (236-foot) vessel, MV Axioma, was seized on March 22 following a complaint filed by the U.S. bank J.P. Morgan, authorities in the tiny British enclave at the southern tip of Spain said at the time.

The move came shortly after Pumpyansky — head of TMK, Russia's biggest manufacturer of steel pipes — was added to the list of tycoons targeted by EU and U.K. sanctions...More

Famed American extreme skier Hilaree Nelson found dead after falling from world's eighth-highest mountain in Nepal

The body of a famed U.S. extreme skier who went missing this week after falling from the world's eighth-highest mountain was recovered Wednesday and transported to Nepal's capital.

Hilaree Nelson, 49, was skiing down from the 8,163-meter summit of Mount Manaslu with her partner, Jim Morrison, on Monday when she fell off the mountain.

Her body was flown by helicopter to a hospital in Kathmandu where doctors planned to perform an autopsy.

Rescuers searching by helicopter located Nelson's body on Wednesday after failing to find her on Tuesday and Monday, when bad weather hampered their search.

TikTok, YouTube Algorithms 'Brazenly' Recommend Dangerous Videos to Children: Study

TikTok, YouTube and Instagram employ algorithms that “brazenly” recommend videos that encourage dangerous and even deadly behavior to children, according to a new report.

The report by the nonprofit organization Fairplay found that all three platforms violated their own policies by recommending videos encouraging dangerous behavior when a teen user searches for a video with risky behavior.

Researchers in the study opened accounts on the three platforms while purporting to be a 14-year-old male. They then searched for videos depicting “car surfing” and “train surfing” – dangerous stunts in which individuals ride or stand on the top of (or hold onto the side of) cars and trains in motion.

The report found that 80 percent of “car surfing”...More

Newsom Signs Bill That Removes Children from Parents Who Oppose Transgender Treatments

Newsom Signs Bill That Removes Children from Parents Who Oppose Transgender Treatments

California Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed a bill into law that he says protects transgender-identifying children but that critics say will allow the state to take custody of out-of-state minors whose parents oppose transgender treatments.

At issue is S.B. 107, which Newsom and supporters say would make California a so-called “refuge” for children whose states restrict transgender treatments or whose parents oppose such treatments. At least four states have passed laws that ban puberty blockers, hormones and/or sex-change surgery involving children.

Newsom signed the bill on Thursday, saying it “will ensure these kids and their families can seek and obtain the medical and mental health care they need.”

But opponents of the new law, including Alliance...More

Catholic High School Can Fire Guidance Counselor Involved in Same-Sex Marriage, Judge Rules

A federal judge ruled that an Indiana-based Catholic school is within its right to fire a former guidance counselor for being in a same-sex marriage.

According to The Christian Post, former guidance counselor Shelly Fitzgerald sued Roncalli High School in 2019 after the school refused to renew her contract for the following year after discovering that she was in a same-sex marriage during the duration of her 15-year tenure at the school.

The school accused Fitzgerald, who was with her partner for over 20 years, of violating her contract and Catholic teaching. On the other hand, Fitzgerald claimed in the lawsuit that the school discriminated against her.
