This Enormous Crater Appeared Overnight In Germany

An exploding World War II bomb left a 10-meter-wide (33-foot), 4-meter-deep (13-foot) crater in a German cornfield over the weekend. Last Sunday, Ahlbach residents in central Germany were shaken when a blast the size of a minor earthquake went off at 3.52am local time. No one was injured and while the cause of said blast was at first unknown, there is nothing to suggest it was caused by faulty farm machinery or related tools. Indeed, explosive clearance experts have since said the shape of the hole confirms “with almost absolute certainty” it was produced during a bomb detonation – specifically, a 250-kilogram (550-pound) bomb detonation. Several other unexploded bombs have been found in the vicinity in the past, an area close …

Disrupting Tropical Soil Could Be Releasing Previously Unaccounted Ancient Carbon Dioxide

Increased deforestation and agricultural production in the world’s tropical regions may be releasing previously untracked carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, according to a new study published in Nature Geoscience. Researchers investigated 19 sites in the Democratic Republic of Congo for dissolved organic carbon that had been drained into streams and rivers. As thousand-year-old soil is upturned and disrupted, they found that older dissolved organics from areas that had seen higher rates of deforestation were richer in energy and more chemically diverse. “We estimate that while deforestation reduces the overall flux of dissolved organic carbon by approximately 56%, it does not significantly change the yield of biolabile dissolved organic carbon,” wrote the authors. “Ultimately, the exposure of deeper soil horizons through deforestation …

This Is What A (Now Deleted) Military Document Has To Say About US Nuclear Policy

The Pentagon published a document on nuclear warfare (entitled “Nuclear Operations“) earlier this month. It was most probably a mistake because it was swiftly removed from the website – but not before the Federation of American Scientists (FAS) had the chance to archive the paper. The document summarizes the military’s position on nukes, their management, and how and why they might be deployed. It is the first doctrine paper along these lines to be published in the last 14 years and it makes for some alarming reading. “US nuclear forces serve the national objective of maintaining peace through strength,” reads the document. It goes on to say “The spectrum of nuclear warfare may range from tactical application, to limited regional use, to global employment …

What Is Happening to Tourists in the Dominican Republic? Betches

Many of the tourists’ causes of death are still unknown, but they seem to be sort of suspicious. One man was feeling off all day, but went out with his friends like one would do on vacation only to be found dead the next morning. Additionally, a couple was found with fluid in their brain and lungs. “Shark Tank’s” Barbara Corcoran’s brother was among the victims. He died of a heart attack in the DR, though his family says he suffered from a pre-existing heart condition.  A couple who stayed at Bahia Principe last year actually that after their stay they became extremely ill, but are luckily still alive.

Doctors neglected NHS founder’s relative

An inquest at Boston Coroner’s Court, which concluded in May, heard a tumour was identified during a scan at Boston Pilgrim Hospital in October 2016.

Read more Lincolnshire stories The narrative verdict recorded at his inquest concluded, on the balance of probabilities, the treatment proposed for Mr Bevan “would have been successful” if doctors had ensured he underwent stereotactic ablative radiotherapy. Mr Bevan’s daughter, Paula, said: “I feel that my dad was totally let down by the NHS, whose founder was Aneurin Bevan, who, as the name suggests, my dad was …

French Mother Doesnt Censor What Motherhood Really Looks Like In Her 30 Comics

#2 Your Breasts Are Always Sore “My daughter is a nerd. A very, very smart, quiet, and somewhat clumsy girl. She’s always reading a book and she’s also a scatterbrain just like her mother.

Specially trained dogs try to save threatened turtle species

John Rucker of Montana with his dogs at Nachusa Grasslands in Franklin Grove, Illinois looking for ornate box turtles. (FOX NEWS/ MITTI HICKS) The turtles have become endangered because farms have been encroaching on their property. They need tall grass to live and little of it is left. “The ornate box turtles are a really important part of the prairie ecosystem, which once covered the majority of states like Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, and Kansas,” said Elizabeth Bach, ecosystem restoration scientist for Nachusa Grasslands. “With settlement from European settlers, most of that land was converted to agriculture practices. The result is we’ve lost over 99 percent of the historic range of that tall grass prairie here in Illinois. Species like the ornate box …

Dominican Official Claims American Tourist Died From ‘Shock’ Of Seeing Fianc Dead! – Perez Hilton

As the number of American tourist deaths in the Dominican Republic grows, so too does the ridiculousness of the denials by that country’s government. According to the U.S. State Department, at least The DR’s government is trying hard to keep people from connecting the unexplained deaths, most of which seem to have followed drinking from the minibars in various Punta Cana resorts — leading to speculation about bootleg alcohol. Tourism Minister Francisco Javier Garcia attested earlier this month: “In the last five years, over 30 million tourists have visited the Dominican Republic, but this is the first time the international media report such an alarming situation. These are isolated incidents and the Dominican Republic is a safe destination.” But now they’re …
