  • Man Who Burned Retina During 1962 Eclipse Warns Others of Viewing Dangers

    08/17/2017 1:39:31 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 37 replies
    Lou Tomososki was a high school teen in 1962 when his science teacher told the class about a solar eclipse that was going to take place that afternoon, NBC affiliate KGW reported. Tomososki and a friend viewed the partial eclipse outside Marshall High School in Portland. "The sun at that time, at 3:30 p.m., was in the one o’clock position," said Tomososki. "I said to Roger, 'If you stare at it long enough the brightness goes away.'" By that night, both Tomososki and Roger were having vision problems. He said the vision problems never got any worse — but they...

    State-sponsored hackers penetrate the systems of other nations. It happens regularly. The United States does it. China does it. Russia does it. Iran does it. Sometimes, hacking reveals that someone in the hacking nation is working with the enemy. When that happens, someone dies. Sometimes, a secretary of state receives e-mails — on her unsecured, private e-mail server — about an Iranian scientist who is providing information to the United States and then that scientist is later executed for espionage.Throughout the scandal surrounding her use of an unsecured, private e-mail server, Hillary Clinton claimed that she “never sent or received...

    From a charred Hebrew scroll, researchers resurrected one of the earliest known versions of the Old Testament using a new digital reconstruction technique that may prove invaluable in revealing words from other previously unreadable finds, said scientists who plan to make the imaging software freely available. In research published in Science Advances Wednesday, computer analysts at the University of Kentucky in Lexington detailed the technology they used to reveal text within a roll of parchment reduced to charcoal in a burning synagogue 1,500 years ago, “virtually unwrapping” the scroll without ever actually touching the artifact. While important to archaeologists, the...
  • Huma Abedin admits that Clinton burned daily schedules

    Hillary Clinton’s closest aide revealed in a deposition last week that her boss destroyed at least some of her schedules as secretary of state — a revelation that could complicate matters for the presumptive Democratic nominee who, along with the State Department she ran, is facing numerous lawsuits seeking those very public records. Huma Abedin was deposed in connection with a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit into Clinton’s e-mails — but her admission could be relevant to another lawsuit seeking Clinton’s schedules. “If there was a schedule that was created that was her Secretary of State daily schedule, and a...

    SAN JOSE -- A Modesto contractor awarded an $11 million contract to build a San Jose environmental center despite finishing two city fire stations late has walked off the job and filed for bankruptcy with the unfinished project more than six months overdue and $1.6 million over budget. Applegate Johnston's team failed to show up at the Las Plumas Avenue job site last month and filed bankruptcy papers two weeks later, jeopardizing the project's completion and complex financing and forcing the city this week to delay occupancy of a key tenant until next year. City officials said the deadlines to...

    CLARKSDALE, Miss. -- The body of Marco McMillian, the former Alabama A&M administrator whose body was found last week, was "beaten, dragged and burned," according to a statement released by his family to the Jackson Clarion Ledger. A Shelby Miss. man, 22-year-old Jeremy Reed, has been charged in McMillian's murder. "We feel this was not a random act of violence based on the condition of the body when it was found," the McMillian family said in the statement. "Marco, nor anyone, should have their lives end in this manner." McMillian worked in the cabinet of former Alabama A&M President Robert...

    GENEVA - A woman was burnt alive in Papua New Guinea this week after townspeople accused her of sorcery, the United Nations said on Friday, citing the “heinous crime” as part of a growing pattern of vigilante attacks on people accused of witchcraft. U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay called on authorities in Papua New Guinea to investigate such crimes and bring their perpetrators to justice. A 1971 law defining sorcery as a crime in the South Pacific nation should be repealed, Pillay’s spokeswoman said. “We are deeply disturbed by reports of the torture and killing of a...

    The boy raised his hand, eager to answer the question. “What would you know about it?” exclaimed the teacher dismissively. “You’re not our race.” This was not dialogue from a Hollywood movie. According to a woman named Melissa Coon, it was what a teacher at East High School in Kansas City told her 13-year-old son, Allen, when he attempted to answer a question during Black History Month. Coon identifies that teacher as Mrs. Karla Dorsey, who is black; Allen is white. As has already been reported, Allen was a victim of a vicious racial attack last week in which two...

    The anti-Israel boycott by the Palestinian Authority took on wider dimensions Friday night when Arabs burned two Arab stores for allegedly doing business with Jews. The stores are located on “Zion Way," the route connecting Kiryat Arba with the area of the Patriarchs Cave in Hevron. The incident is another sign that the PA boycott has fostered increasingly belligerent anti-Israel sentiment. The boycott began several months ago with the confiscation in Samaria of thousands of dollars of cosmetics produced at a kibbutz near the Dead Sea in the Jordan Valley.

    MIRANSHAH, Pakistan (Reuters) - A missile fired by a pilotless U.S. drone aircraft on Friday killed at least three militants traveling in a car in Pakistan's North Waziristan region on the Afghan border, security officials said. "The bodies were burned beyond recognition. We are trying to determine their identity," said one security official. On Thursday night, a drone attack killed at least two militants in the same region, known as a sanctuary for Taliban and al Qaeda militants fighting in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The United States carried out at least 50 drone air strikes in northwestern border regions in 2009,...

    Suspected Jewish settlers today attacked a mosque in the northern West Bank, burning holy books and spraying threatening graffiti in Hebrew on the building, Palestinian officials and Israeli police said. Extremists broke into the mosque in the village of Yasuf, near the city of Nablus, and burned Muslim holy books and prayers carpets, while sprayed slogans on the floor reading “Price tag – greetings from Effi.” The so-called price tag is the Jewish settlers’ policy of attacking Palestinians and their property in retribution for any Israeli government curb on settlement expansion. Effi is a Jewish name. The dawn attack appeared...
