Daily Mail [UK], by Hugo Gye, Lydia Warren

Original Article

The Florida socialite who exposed the affair which brought down David Petraeus has been sacked as an honorary consul for South Korea. Jill Kelley was so proud of her status, which she was awarded thanks to her friendship with the country´s ambassador, that she had a custom licence plate made boasting of it. But now the title has been taken away from her after a senior Korean official said she had tried to ´peddle influence´ in a way that was ´inappropriate´. Kelley, a Tampa housewife who works as an ´unpaid social liaison´ at MacDill Air Force Base, unwittingly sparked the

#3, my observation is that they do this because they have both had nose surgery to reduce the size of their noses. That pose is so that their nose will be photographed at a different angle, not straight on, which causes their nose to have a strange Michael Jackson look.

Posted By: Attercliffe- 8/4/2013 4:36:06 PM     Post Reply
Islamist militants set off several explosions in the Somali capital on Sunday, their spokesman said, demonstrating the rebels´ ability to attack the heart of government-controlled areas despite security gains. The guerilla-style attacks were typical of al Shabaab rebels who have waged a six-year campaign to impose their strict interpretation of Islamic law on the country. [Snip] "We started a massive military operation across Mogadishu at dusk. It will go on until tomorrow morning," said rebel spokesman Sheikh Abdiasis Abu Musab, promising more attacks over the next few days as the Muslim holy month of Ramadan ends.

The US decision to close its diplomatic missions in the Middle East was prompted by the interception of high-ranking al-Qaeda operatives signalling a major attack, according to politicians. [Snip] An unnamed US official, cited by ABC news, said there was concern that al-Qaeda might deploy suicide attackers with surgically implanted bombs to evade security. The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, Michael McFaul, said the United States was on a high state of alert, calling it "probably one of the most specific and credible threats I´ve seen, perhaps, since 9/11."

An odd dark vertical line that was observed in the sky over Florida earlier this week has left meteorologists puzzled. The shadowy apparition was spotted and photographed by Mike Weight at Honeymoon Island State Park near Dunedin, Florida, Wednesday. Weight was walking on the beach at around 12.30pm. The day was bright and sunny, but there were thunderheads forming to the east. ‘I was looking North when I observed what looked like a ray of dark light coming down from a small cloud to the surface of the Gulf about a half-mile away,’ the 73-year-old man wrote in an email

Yellowstone National Park´s Steamboat Geyser went off for the first time in eight years on Wednesday evening, drenching delighted visitors with its unexpected display. The eruption went on for nine minutes from 7:30pm and blasted water and steam up to 300 feet in the air. The geyser continued to emit plumes of steam high into the sky throughout the night. Steamboat is the most fickle of the Wyoming park´s roughly 500 geysers, and no one knows when it´s going to erupt next. The park´s most famous geyser, Old Faithful, is the antithesis of Steamboat, which is at once the

President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner approved the deal, which will give Argentina the capability to attack the Falklands with laser-guided bombs. The 20 aircraft sold to the Argentine military are at Spain’s Albacete air base and will be shipped to Tandil air base south of Buenos Aires. Built in France, the multi-role fighter has a top speed of 1,320mph and a range of 500 miles, boosting Argentina’s ability to “pester” the Falklands from its southern air bases. Spain will provide spares and a training simulator and will train the initial batch of Argentine air force pilots selected

Interpol has linked a worldwide Al Qaeda terror warning to a series of jailbreaks that have freed more than 1,500 suspected terrorists in the last fortnight. Detectives fear that inmates who escaped from Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, the al-Kwyfah facility in Libya and a number of other jails intend to hit British and other Western targets around the festival of Eid--which takes place this week. The Foreign Office has announced the temporary closure of the embassy in Yemen after receiving a tip-off that Al Qaeda was planning to attack a Western embassy there.

And that´s under just one of a growing number of hate-infused bills becoming law at a time when, as it happens, Russia is preparing to host the world in the next Winter Olympics. The perverse anti-gay legislation is inflaming an atmosphere of persistent intimidation and at times deadly violence against Russian gays and lesbians.

Some of the earliest clues scientists had that Earth´s climate has changed over time were mismatches between the fossil record and a current ecosystem. How could this palm tree have grown in Wyoming? Why have fossils of the tropical breadfruit tree been found as far north as Greenland? These cold places must have once been warm and wet. The world is not as it has always been. And somehow, despite the tumult, species adapted, moving thousands of miles to habitats where they could survive. Won´t species today just do the same as temperatures rise in the years ahead?
