    The tiny Pacific island of Nauru has spent weeks completely cut off from the outside world after its telecommunications network collapsed. Its isolation is so complete that no one is even sure who the country's president is any more. Nauru, an isolated speck in the southwest Pacific with a population of 12,000, is in a "critical situation", according to the last message received by the outside world. That came via an address given three weeks ago by the man last believed to be running the country, President Bernard Dowiyogo, details of which were given on Friday by Radio Australia....

I won’t be responding to anyone who thinks this is acceptable behavior. It is ILLEGAL!” Security cameras recorded a truck dumping off a huge pile of manure outside the office at 12:03 a.m. on October 29. Police are investigating the incident, WLWT reported.

    When future anthropologists study America in the 21st century and its rapid decline, they will no doubt better understand its code of values (or lack thereof) by examining the symbols and ideas that captured the spirit of the time – the things that we held dear. In every generation, there are icons that sum up its core values – not official ones, but symbols that really mean something to people: Rosie the Riveter, the American flag, Elvis Presley, the motorcycle jacket, the defeatist “peace sign” and now the tyrannical “Coexist” bumper sticker. There are symbols that sum up the zeitgeist...

    Naughty, naughty cows broke into a woman’s home and pooed everywhere as she showered. Pat Costen, from Guernsey, came downstairs to find the two wandering around her house. They’re part of a conservation herd bred to protect grasslands. But she’d forgotten to lock her doors and the animals barged in with heavy bowels and no respect. Ms Costen said: ‘I was in the shower and when I came out I could smell something. I looked over the banister and there was large cow pat. They came in through the kitchen, along the corridor, round the snooker table and into the...

    Parents at a central Texas school district are outraged after staff members forced elementary school students to drop their pants because feces had been found on the gym floor. The Gustine school had been trying to investigate how the poop ended up on the floor. So the teachers took girls to one room and boys to another and asked them to lower their pants in what parents are describing as a partial strip search

    How does a city strike a balance between the needs of the homeless and the needs of those around them? Those questions will be put to the Fort Lauderdale City Commission as they consider two provisions on the agenda at Tuesday’s commission meeting. At the beginning of this year, the Fort Lauderdale City commission sat down to discuss how the city could address the issue of homelessness better. Out of that came ideas about ways to protect non-homeless residents’ quality of life. One of the ordinances up for consideration would prevent homeless people from urinating or defecating in public. The...

The case against Patricia Ann Jamison, of Lake Worth, got rolling March 7 after court security staff learned of what looked to be "human fecal matter in the corner of the left public elevator by the buttons," according to recently released St. Lucie County Sheriff's records.

    Earthworm poo can be used to measure past temperatures, providing a window into the ancient climate. A study shows that the chemistry of small balls of chalky crystals secreted into soil by the worms varies with temperature. A UK team said the granules could be compared with other climatic "proxies", such as ice cores and deep sea sediments. Details appear in the journal Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta. Scientists from the universities of Reading and York, report that the calcium carbonate (calcite) nodules dug up from archaeological sites give a unique measure of the ancient local temperatures. Because the ratios of...

    A PLANE powered by COW DUNG is on the shortlist of a global competition to design the aircraft of the future. The jet is fuelled by methane generated from farmyard waste stored in refrigerated pods next to the plane’s engines. Other ideas in the contest sponsored by European plane maker AIRBUS include floating luggage on a bed of air for easy access — and a jet running on passengers’ body heat.

    Tossing feces with pinpoint accuracy may not immediately strike you as sophisticated behavior, but researchers studying the brain activity of captive chimpanzees have found that the smartest apes also happen to pitch the most accurate poop, according to Playing dodgeball with poop-wielding chimpanzees may sound like an odd career choice, but Bill Hopkins of Emory University, who spent the last several years observing the throwing accuracy and brain scans of chimpanzees, had a hunch that this behavior had a deeper significance.Particularly curious to Hopkins was the fact that chimpanzees are the only species besides humans known to regularly throw...

    (Reuters) - Once a year, every year, Professor Thomas Borody receives a single-stem rose from one of his most grateful patients. She is, he says, thanking him for restoring her bowel flora. It's a distasteful cure for a problem that's increasingly widespread: the Clostridium difficile bug, typically caught by patients in hospitals and nursing homes, can be hard to treat with antibiotics. But Borody is one of a group of scientists who believe the answer is a faecal transplant. Some jokily call it a "transpoosion." Others have more sciencey names like "bacteriotherapy" or "stool infusion therapy." But the process involves,...

    Two shop-owners were today fined for selling chocolate cake - which had been sprinkled with human faeces. A horrified customer ate the foul-smelling gateaux but noticed that it didn't taste or smell "quite right" and handed the cake to public health scientists. The analysts soon established that the sweet treat was covered in faeces and legal proceedings against the shop owners were started. Shop owners Saeed Hasmi, 25, and Jan Yadgari, 23, were fined Ł1,500 for selling food unfit for human consumption. The pair - who ran the Italiano Pizzeria in Roath, Cardiff - admitted the charge but did not...

    AN unhappy wife fed her husband dog excrement in a curry, the BBC has reported. Jill Martin, 47, pleaded guilty in a Scottish court to culpable and reckless conduct against her ex-husband Donald Martin. The court heard that Martin served the dinner to her husband and started laughing as he began to eat it. At first she claimed she had laced the dish with arsenic but then confessed she had added dog excrement , the BBC reported. Martin's defence lawyer Terry Gallanagh compared the case to "an episode of Desperate Housewives", and said that at the time of the curry...

    From the day they brought her home, the D'Avellas' black-and-white mutt loathed ringing phones. At the first trill, Jay Dee would bolt from the room and howl until someone picked up. But within a few weeks, the D'Avellas began missing calls: When the phone rang, their friends later told them, someone would pick up and then the line would go dead. One evening, Aida D'Avella solved the mystery. Sitting in the family room of her Newark, N.J., home, Ms. D'Avella got up as the phone rang, but the dog beat her to it. Jay Dee ran straight to the ringing...

    Gardeners know it is ideal for making compost but now a company in Snowdonia has won an award for being even more innovative with sheep droppings. Creative Paper Wales has produced greetings cards and gifts made from the by-products of its woolly neighbours. Its Sheep Poo Paper products have won a Ł20,000 Millennium Award for "social entrepreneurship". After the sheep droppings are collected, they are sterilised, washed and mixed with other recycled paper. This is then turned into the finished paper and cardboard while the washing water is distributed to local growers as concentrated fertiliser. Founders Lawrence Toms, 38, from...
