    Anti-Trump leftists reacted negatively on Twitter Wednesday to President Trump’s tweet of a photoshopped image honoring the hero dog that chased Islamic State (ISIS) founder and leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, into a tunnel. Trump tweeted an obviously photoshopped image depicting him honoring the dog, whose photo was released on Tuesday.“AMERICAN HERO!” Trump wrote alongside the photoshopped image:However, Trump’s decision to tweet the image, reportedly created by Daily Wire, prompted some to fact-check the obviously doctored image.“I’ve requested details from the @WhiteHouse on this photo. There was no such canine event on today’s @POTUS schedule but there is a Medal of Honor ceremony...

    SABATON bassist Pr Sundstrm recently spoke with France's United Rock Nations. The full conversation can be streamed below. A few excerpts follow... On SABATON's lyrics: Pr: "War is not really black-and-white. War always has a very gray color, because war is conceived by different sides for whatever [reasons] they have. In all conflicts, there are a lot of losers and a lot of people who have their different inputs and think that, 'We are the good guys. They are the bad.' For SABATON, it's not about taking a stand. We write the songs from different kinds of angles all the...

    Theres no better time than now to start seriously defending metal after it was revealed that the Dayton, OH mass shooter was a metal fan himself, and even the frontman of a misogynistic pornogrind band, its imperative that our sacred realm of heavy music doesnt become the scapegoat for violent behavior. So its with relief we report that a new study by Nick Perham, Cardiff Metropolitan University lecturer and die-hard metal fan, has concluded that metal actually offers fans a healthy way to cope with unpleasant emotions and experiences.Fans who were made angry and then listened to heavy metal...

    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) The halt on Chinas imports of wastepaper and plastic that has disrupted U.S. recycling programs has also spurred investment in American plants that process recyclables.U.S. paper mills are expanding capacity to take advantage of a glut of cheap scrap. Some facilities that previously exported plastic or metal to China have retooled so they can process it themselves. And in a twist, the investors include Chinese companies that are still interested in having access to wastepaper or flattened bottles as raw material for manufacturing. Its a very good moment for recycling in the United States, said Neil...

    The playful, stainless steel, 41 in (104 cm) high rabbit, regarded as one of the most celebrated works of 20th-century art, was sold for more than $20 million over its pre-sale estimate. Christie's said the sale made Koons the highest-priced living artist, overtaking the $90.3 million record set last November by British painter David Hockney's 1972 work "Portrait of an Artist (Pool With Two Figures.)" The shiny, faceless oversized rabbit, clutching a carrot, is the second in an edition of three made by Koons in 1986.

    The childs pediatrician recommended the family go to the emergency room to get an X-ray, and though the report says they didn't find large amounts of metal in her body the family said it did show metal in her intestines. Andersen said shes since researched how metal could end up in food products, but isnt satisfied as to why. "Food is mass produced these days and metal machines will break apart and I guess pieces will fall into the production line, but there's supposed to be people or tools to catch those things," she said.

    Researchers have found a deposit of rare-earth minerals off the coast of Japan that could supply the world for centuries, according to a new study. The study, published in the journal Nature on Tuesday, says the deposit contains 16 million tons of the valuable metals. Rare-earth minerals are used in everything from smartphone batteries to electric vehicles. By definition, these minerals contain one or more of 17 metallic rare-earth elements (for those familiar with the periodic table, those are on the second row from the bottom).
  • The Earth's core has a 'jet stream' of molten iron

    You know jet streams as fast-flowing air currents in the atmosphere that can help predict temperature and help planes fly faster. According to data sent back by a trio of ESA satellites called Swarm, though, there's also a jet stream deep beneath our planet's surface, and it's made of molten iron. A team of European scientists have discovered the jet stream in the Earth's outer core that's located 1,900 miles underneath its crust. It moves at 25 miles per year, three times faster than the speed of the other layers in the outer core and a thousand times faster than...

    ON the morning of Saturday, Feb. 26, a day before the Academy Awards, the actress Carrie Fisher woke up in her Beverly Hills home next to the lifeless body of a gay Republican political operative named R. Gregory Stevens. Thus ended one of the more improbable friendships that Hollywood and Washington have known - and a globe-trotting, adventurous, but ultimately debilitating existence that might be fodder for a Tinseltown thriller, if it only had a satisfying resolution. Before its abrupt end, Mr. Stevens's journey had taken him from the beaches of San Clemente, Calif., and the slopes of Sun Valley,...

    Harvard scientists triumphantly announced that they'd created metallic hydrogen last month, but now it's suddenly gone. Scientists hailed it as the holy grail of high pressure physics when they finally produced it in the lab: metallic hydrogen, a century after it was first theorized to exist. And now that sample, which had been held in a hyper refrigerated laboratory, has vanished into thin air, and scientists cant figure out why. Reports indicate that the metallic hydrogen had been kept between a vice of two diamonds at huge pressures while being stored at 80 Kelvin, but something happened in the lab...

    THE American space agency is planning to send a spacecraft to a lump of metal in space worth quadrillions of dollars. The 200km-wide asteroid is currently orbiting the sun between Mars and Jupiter. It is made up of various precious metals such as iron, nickel and gold. Experts believe the iron alone in the rock would be worth $10,000 quadrillion enough to cause the worlds economy, worth $73.7 trillion, to promptly collapse altogether.

    A bronze buckle and a cylindrical metal bead found in Alaska are the first hard evidence of trade between Asia and the indigenous peoples of the North American Arctic, centuries before contact with Europeans, archaeologists say. An analysis of the artifacts has shown that they were smelted in East Asia out of lead, copper, and tin, before finding their way to an indigenous village some 700 years ago.

    When a band that has been around for more than 40 years goes on the road, fans have to be prepared for the possibility that this go-round may be the last. While AC/DC isnt officially calling this a farewell tour, the fact that singer Brian Johnson had to leave the tour after a doctor said he was risking total hearing loss means its unlikely hell take the stage with the band again. Johnsons departure follows co-founder Malcolm Young departure in 2014 because he is suffering from dementia. That same year, drummer Phil Rudd was arrested for threatening to kill someone...

    Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials refuse to answer two questions surrounding the August 2015 Gold King Mine spill that would help resolve issues uncovered by a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation. TheDCNF reported numerous contradictions in the EPAs explanation of how and why it intentionally breached Colorados Gold King Mine, releasing 880,000 pounds of dangerous metals and mining waste into drinking water for three states and the Navajo Nation. Yet, the EPA refused to clarify those contradictions and instead disregarded TheDCNFs findings and clung to its original story. First, the EPA ignored the conflicts of interest surrounding the independent investigation...
