  • Chicken Arrested for Crossing Busy Road

    10/12/2016 11:28:28 AM PDT · by nickcarraway · 12 replies
    A chicken was arrested after it attempted to cross a busy road. The feathery bird was desperate to get to the other side of the tarmac in East Marketgait, Dundee, during rush hour but was stopped in its tracks after a motorist reported it to the police. Officers rushed to the scene as they believed the chicken was "giving passing motorists cause for concern" and captured it. They then took it back to the station in Tayside, Scotland, and appealed for its owner before contacting the Scottish Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA). Taking to Facebook, the police...

    NICE (FRANCE) (AFP) – The European road cycling championships, which were due to be held in Nice from September 14 to 18, have been cancelled for security reasons, the French city’s mayor confirmed on Friday. The announcement came just three weeks after the Bastille Day truck attack in Nice which claimed 85 lives and injured more than 300. Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, a 31-year-old Tunisian who drove a truck into revellers watching a fireworks display on the city’s Promenade des Anglais, was shot dead by police. “Given that it was an event that would have required a large police presence, and...

  • China’s Pakistan-occupied Kashmir tunnels ring alarm bells for India

    The Daily Mail India ^ | October 3, 2015 | Ananth Krishnan
    China's move to construct five tunnels to open up a new section of the Karakoram Highway in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) last month has signalled Beijing’s intent to go forward with ambitious projects despite India’s increasingly vocal concerns and rising security concerns in the restive disputed region. In a major project that will ensure year-round land connectivity linking China and Pakistan through PoK, the China Road and Bridge Corporation has constructed five seven km-long tunnels on the Karakoram Highway. Earlier, this particular section had been cut off on account of a barrier lake formed at Attabad, which had blocked access since...
  • 'China would be the bank and Russia would be the big gun' in Central Asia

    Business Insider ^ | July 15, 2015 | Elena Holodny
    We are seeing the emergence of a dual power structure in Central Asia, with China as the dominant economic power and Russia as the big security player. Or, as Alexander Gabuev, senior associate and the chair of the Russia in the Asia-Pacific program at the Carnegie Moscow Center, told Foreign Policy: "China would be the bank and Russia would be the big gun." The confluence comes as Moscow shifts its attention toward Asia after being isolating by the West over the war in Ukraine. China, for its part, is seeking to find new countries it can export goods to as...

    This happened to me on SR 41 in Tampa on Monday March 24th. This pathetic excuse for a human being tailgated me for about three minutes. After about a minute, and me shaking my head, I pulled out my phone and started recording. I couldn't move over because there were trucks in the right lane, and I sure as heck wasn't going to speed on a rainy day with the roads being as slick as they were. I was turning left in about a half-mile when this happened. Now bear in mind, that this guy had already passed a truck...

    For at least the second time in five months, Arab residents of Beit Umar in the Palestinian Authority (PA) have placed a Nazi flag over a major thoroughfare where Jews pass in their vehicles. Beit Umar is located between Halhoul and the Etzion Bloc, not far from Hevron. Soldiers from the Haruv battalion in Kfir Regiment tried to take down the flag Saturday, but encountered difficulty because it was placed very high up. A similar event took place at Beit Umar in May, when hundreds of residents of Gush Etzion who drove down Highway 60 were astounded to see an...

    CLEVELAND — In Florida, a state trooper pulled Jim Wilson off the highway, but instead of issuing a speeding ticket, asked a favor: Could he have a few Romney for President bumper stickers? In Michigan, a woman left a handwritten letter for Mitt Romney on Mr. Wilson’s dashboard, recounting her husband’s trouble finding work. “We pray you can get us out of this mess,” she wrote. And here in Ohio, three young men surrounded Mr. Wilson’s car, repeated a crude anti-Romney chant and broke his driver’s side windshield wiper. The cocoonlike machinery of the modern presidential campaign, with its bulletproof...

    Russians get perverse pleasure out of taking photos of their bad roads and then posting the pictures on the internet. This year, for the first time, Russia is expected to top Germany as Europe’s largest car market. With car purchases increasing by 20 percent in Russia this year, the Center of Automotive Management predicts that Russians will buy 3.2 million vehicles during 2012, slightly more than Germany. So how are Russia’s roads? According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report, Russia ranks number 125 out of 139 countries on the quality of its highway infrastructure. According to another report,...
  • Oops: White House Sending Joe Biden Off to ‘Road Island’

    Let’s face it, Greasy Joe probably has no idea where he is most of the time, so the fact he’s heading to Road Island probably doesn’t register with him. Joe Biden‘s camp might be overly-reliant on spell-check. The White House recently announced that the Vice President would be attending campaign events in “Road Island.” The glaring misspelling of the Ocean State showed up in a widely-distributed press release detailing Biden’s upcoming travel plans. After spending the holiday weekend in Wilmington, Del., the VP will make stops on Thursday in Boston, Mass., Manchester, New Hampshire, and finally, Providence, Rhode Island. In...
