    A pigeon racing enthusiast avoided jail Wednesday, but was fined $5,500 and ordered to volunteer in an animal shelter for killing federally protected hawks that were attacking pet birds he spent years raising in Stamford. The case against pigeon racer Thomas Kapusta was the first major prosecution in Connecticut under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. Neither side got everything it wanted from the sentence that was imposed after debate about whether the lives of some creatures have more value than those of others.

    A piece aluminium that looks as if it was handmade is being hailed as 250,000-year-old proof that aliens once visited Earth. The discovery of the mysterious chunk of metal in communist Romania in 1973 was not made public at the time, according to CEN. Testing has since revealed that the object is made of 12 metals and is 90 per cent aluminium with Romanian officials dating it as being 250,000 years old. The initial results were later confirmed by a lab in Lausanne, Switzerland, CEN reports.

    Without saying any words, Hillary Clinton sent a message to voters the moment she walked onto the stage at Wednesday night's presidential debate in Las Vegas. Or rather the Democratic presidential candidate's white Ralph Lauren pantsuit sent the message. Clinton has worn Ralph Lauren's designs often since kicking off her campaign. For example, she wore a cobalt blue Ralph Lauren suit for the campaign's opening rally last year in New York City. But it's her choice of color -- not designer -- that's significant. "The choice of a white suit for Wednesday’s debate harkened back to the not-so-distant past, when...

    A ghost pepper's heat is described in terms normally reserved for carpet bombings. Its heat is measured at 1 million units on the Scoville scale, a per-mass measure of capsaicin - the chemical compound that imbues peppers with heat - that until recently was a world record. Peppers that pass the 1 million mark are called superhot; as a rule they are reddish and puckered, as though one of Satan's internal organs had prolapsed. To daredevil eaters of a certain stripe, the superhot peppers exist only to challenge. When consumed, ghost peppers and other superhots provoke extreme reactions. "Your body...

Locals estimate that the bodies of some 10,000 Titicaca water frogs have been found in Lake Titicaca and its adjoining rivers.

Thousands of the large, wrinkly green frogs have been found floating on the surface of the Coata river in southern Peru in recent days, prompting the National Forestry and Wildlife Service (Serfor) to launch an investigation.

In fact, KPRC reports that Williams even hung up on a man who was reporting a deadly shooting at a convenience store. When questioned about the calls, she allegedly admitted to hanging up on callers “because she did not want to talk to anyone at that time.”

  • Do People Change Their Driving Route to See More Trump Signs?

I have a commute that takes me by a maximum of Trump signs and I improve upon that each week. Even though I have to drive longer.
