  • Fishermen seek help identifying bizarre sea creature

    05/03/2016 7:27:34 AM PDT · by JoeProBono · 36 replies
    ZHOUSHAN, China, - A group of Chinese fisherman are turning to the Internet for help identifying a bizarre sea creature they caught in waters off Zhejiang Province. The video, filmed April 25 in Zhoushan, shows the creature being reeled in by the fisherman and examined by the group, who use a pole to lift the strange fish's head out of the water for a better look. The fishermen said they were unable to identify the animal, which they described as much larger than the fish they normally catch in the area. The creature was described as having "two plump places...

    The gender identity obsession has hit full-on insanity in the UK. Children, as young as four years old, are now being asked to choose the gender they “most identify with”: male, female, or other. Yes, there was a third option. Hundreds of parents who signed their children up to attend primary school in the fall were left furious after receiving informational literature from Brighton and Hove City Council which included a request that their four-year-old choose a gender “identity,” reports The Daily Mail UK.

    BELLEFONTE, Pa. — Jerry Sandusky's effort to get his child molestation convictions thrown out ran into tough questioning Monday from a judge who voiced doubt about defense lawyers are entitled to question witnesses — including some of the former Penn State assistant football coach's victims. Judge John Cleland pressed Sandusky attorney Al Lindsay about whether there is sufficient basis for him to allow an evidentiary hearing now, nearly four years after a jury found Sandusky guilty of 45 sex-abuse counts.

According to the Associated Press: “Ted Cruz has pulled his full campaign apparatus out of Indiana. Ted Cruz’s campaign manager is telling media officials that they are now going to focus all of their campaign efforts in the state of California.” The news comes less than 24 hours after the latest polling showed Cruz 22 points behind...

Malia, who is due to graduate from high school next month, will enter Harvard in the fall of 2017, the White House said Sunday. She will take a “gap year” before beginning her freshman year at the Cambridge, Mass., school, the Obamas said. Malia had visited at least a dozen elite public and private colleges, including Columbia (where President Obama earned his bachelor’s degree), Princeton (where first lady Michelle Obama earned hers), Brown, Yale, the University of Pennsylvania, New...

    As Donald Trump inches closer to the Republican nomination, GOP insiders scramble to put a halt to the billionaire’s run for the White House. A new lawsuit filed in the state of California could prove to be the ultimate act of desperation by a frantic establishment willing to go to any lengths to end Trump’s bid for the Oval Office. However, if the allegations contained within the court documents are found to be true, they would not only spell the end of Trump’s presidential aspirations, but most likely his brand as a whole.

    We all have cracked jokes about the United States Postal Service, especially about their workers “going postal.” Most postal workers you’ve encountered are probably lethargic, short-tempered, half-asleep, or just plain rude. Well, that could be due to their work environment. These people are miserable, which is what the USPS painfully discovered when they gave Gallup to conduct this survey at the cost of $1.8 million (via Inside Sources):The topline results were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request after the USPS declined to provide the data to InsideSources when asked in January. Postal workers reported strong job dissatisfaction, and...

    Student activists are calling on universities to install sanitary towel bins in men’s toilets so that biologically female transgender students who use them do not face discrimination. The Mail on Sunday has found that equality rights campaigners at three leading universities have called for the changes – resulting in family groups branding the move ‘madness’. They include Southampton Student Union, which has drawn up a ‘Trans Inclusion Policy’, in which ‘trans’ is defined as a ‘wide umbrella term, covering those who transcend traditional boundaries of gender and sex, those who are gender variant, and those whose gender identity does not...

You are helping us more than you realize. Dear Hitlary, Please, please, PLEASE run on an anti-gun platform, I'm begging you. In my opinion, Trump should run GE ads using the "protesters" as proof of his position. He should also run ads highlighting Hitlarys anti-gun stance. If he does that, GAME. OVER.

    You probably know the Visigoths as the Germanic tribes who invaded the Roman Empire. You're wrong. The Visigoths did not "invade" the Roman Empire. They were legal immigrants, who simply never fully assimilated into Roman law. The Visigoths lived in Dacia, the region beyond the Northern frontier of the Roman Empire, north of Greece and what is now Bulgaria. Invasions from Huns led Goth leader Fritigern to appeal to Roman Emperor Valens to immigrate to Rome. Valens perceived of them as potentially productive workers and even soldiers. The Visigoths soon became impoverished, and began selling their women for food and...

That startling notion underlies this novel image of the Moon, based on data collected by the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope's Large Area Telescope (LAT) instrument during its first seven years of operation (2008-2015). Fermi's gamma-ray vision doesn't distinguish details on the lunar surface, but a gamma-ray glow consistent with the Moon's size and position is clearly found at the center of the false color map. The brightest pixels correspond to the...

    It was the film that traumatised a generation of children, with its much-loved rabbit characters slain on screen in graphic and memorable scenes. But the story of Watership Down is to be remade for a new era, as programme-makers promise to tone down its most brutal images. The BBC has teamed up with Netflix for one of the most expensive mini-series ever made for the small screen, and the first animated four-part drama of its kind. The new version stars the voices of James McAvoy and Nicholas Hoult as Hazel and Fiver, Sir Ben Kingsley as General Woundwort and Star...

The social-networking giant spent more than $5 million last year on bodyguards and other measures to protect Zuckerberg and his growing family, according to a regulatory filing. The cost to protect Zuckerberg topped $6.2 million in 2014, up from $3.2 million the previous year, according to the filing. In all, the company has shelled out $14.5 million on security for the CEO over the past three years. Apparently, Zuckerberg presents a much bigger target than rival...
