CONSPIRACY THEORIES FLOURISH AFTER TURKEYS FAILED COUP.
1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
2 That the sons of God (THE DEMIC FALLIN ANGELS) saw the daughters of men that they were fair;(BEAUTIFUL) and they took them wives of all which they chose.(THESE FALLIN ANGELS ACTUALLY HAD SEX WITH HUMAN WOMEN AND PRODUCED GIANT DEMONIC-HUMAN CHILDREN)
3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.(POSSIBLY THE GREEK MYTHOLOGICAL GODS)
5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Prosecutors drop remaining charges against officers in Freddie Gray case-Ryan W. Miller and Greg Toppo, USATODAY 12:18 p.m. EDT July 27, 2016
BALTIMORE — Prosecutors dropped the remaining charges Wednesday against three Baltimore officers in the death of Freddie Gray, but stood by the medical examiner's ruling that his death was a homicide."We do not believe that Freddie Gray killed himself," State Attorney Marilyn Mosby said at a news conference in Gray's neighborhood in West Baltimore.Gray, 25, suffered a severe spinal injury, apparently while en route to the police station, after he was shackled and loaded into a police van but not secured with a seatbelt in April 2015.His death a week later while in police custody set off a series of sometimes violent protests that rocked the city and prompted "Black Lives Matter" demonstrations across the nation.Mosby said the state dropped the charges because it was "highly probable" the remaining defendants would waive their right to trial by jury and that the judge involved in the case would acquit the officers."We could try this case 100 times and cases just like it, and we would end up with the same result," Mosby said.The decision closes the case without any convictions of the six officers originally charged. Judge Barry Williams acquitted officers Brian Rice, Edward Nero and Caesar Goodson earlier this year. Officer William Porter had been awaiting retrial after his trial ended in a hung jury. Two other officers never faced a trial.Mosby said some members of the Baltimore Police Department attempted to undermine the state's case. “For those who believe I’m anti-police, that’s simply not the case, I’m anti-police brutality," she said.Mosby took no questions citing a pending lawsuit the officers filed against her but said she was proud of her team of prosecutors and how they handled the uphill battle of trying the cases.Public reaction to the news of the charges being drop followed shortly after news from the Baltimore courthouse broke."I'm not disappointed. I was just praying for a better outcome," said Arsacha Sympton, 26, in Baltimore.Michelle Dickens, 55, comforted Gray's mother, a distraught Gloria Darden, who was surrounded by friends and neighbors in a show of support after Mosby spoke.“We have never had a state's attorney come out to the public and speak her heart," Dickens said.Miller reported from McLean, Va.
100-year global study finds world's tallest are Dutch, Latvians-[Reuters]-By Kate Kelland-July 25, 2016-YAHOONEWS
LONDON (Reuters) - Dutch men and Latvian women are the planet's tallest people but Iranian men and South Korean women have grown the fastest in the last century, according to the largest ever study of height around the world.Americans, once among the world's tallest people, have dropped from having men and women at 3rd and 4th in the global height rankings a 100 years earlier, to placing 37th and 42nd respectively in 2014.The research, led by scientists at Imperial College London and published in the journal eLife, also found some nations have stopped growing over the past 30 to 40 years, despite having spurts at the start of the century studied.The United States was one of the first wealthy countries to plateau, followed by others including Britain, Finland, and Japan. Meanwhile, people in Spain and Italy and many countries in Latin America and East Asia are still gaining height.In contrast, some nations in sub-Saharan Africa, North Africa and the Middle East have seen average heights decline over the past three to four decades.Human height is strongly influenced by nutrition and environmental factors, although genetic factors can also play a role in individuals. Children and teens who are better nourished and live in better environments tend to be taller.Research suggests a mother's health and nutrition during pregnancy may also play a role in how tall her children grow.Height also has lifelong consequences. Some studies have found that taller people tend to live longer, get a better education and earn more. But being tall may also increase some health risks, with studies linking height to a higher risk of developing ovarian and prostate cancers."This study gives us a picture of the health of nations over the past century," said Majid Ezzati, an Imperial professor of public health. He said the findings underlined the need "to address children and adolescents' environment and nutrition on a global scale."The 800-strong research team, which worked with the World Health Organization, used data from various sources including military conscription figures, health and nutrition population surveys and epidemiological studies.The scientists use these to generate height information for 18-year-olds in 1914 through to 18-year-olds in 2014.They found that Iranian men have gained an average of 16.5 centimeters (cm) in height, and South Korean women 20.2 cm.The height of men and women in Britain has increased by around 11 cm over the past century, while the height of U.S. men and women has risen by 6 cm and 5 cm. Chinese men and women have gained around 11 cm and 10 cm.The study also found that: *Dutch men are the tallest, with an average height of 182.5 cm. Latvian women are the tallest, with an average height of 170 cm. • Men from East Timor were the smallest in the world in 2014, with an average height of 160 cm. Women from Guatemala were the smallest in 2014, with an average height of 149 cm. • The difference between the tallest and shortest countries in 2014 was about 23 cm for men – an increase of 4 cm on the height gap in 1914. The height difference between the tallest and shortest countries for women has remained the same across the century, at about 20 cm. • The height difference between men and women has on average remained largely unchanged over 100 years – the average height gap was about 11 cm in 1914 and 12 cm in 2014. • Australian men in 2014 were the only non-European nationality in the top 25 tallest in the world. The nations with the tallest men in 2014 (1914 ranking in brackets): 1. Netherlands (12) 2. Belgium (33) 3. Estonia (4) 4. Latvia (13) 5. Denmark (9) 6. Bosnia and Herzegovina (19) 7. Croatia (22) 8. Serbia (30) 9. Iceland (6) 10. Czech Republic (24) The nations with the tallest women in 2014 (1914 ranking in brackets): 1. Latvia (28) 2. Netherlands (38) 3. Estonia (16) 4. Czech Republic (69) 5.

Catalonia vows separation from Spain-By EUOBSERVER-july 27,16
Today, 08:53-The government in Catalonia is set to defy Spain's constitutional court this week and press ahead with moves to seek independence. Two senior officials in the pro-independence Catalan government told the Guardian newspaper that they are preparing the legal steps to set up a new tax authority and a foreign affairs department. They want a referendum to take place sometime next year.
Juncker names former rival as Brexit negotiator By Eszter Zalan-july 27,16-euobserver
BRUSSELS, Today, 12:13-EU Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker appointed former French commissioner for financial services as chief negotiator in charge of negotiations with the UK.Michel Barnier, a 65-year old former French minister and vice-president in the previous Commission between 2010-14, was in charge of the internal market and services.He sought the job of EU Commission president in 2014, but the task was later given to Juncker, his rival in the conservative European People's Party.Barnier said in a tweet that he was “honoured to be entrusted” with the post.He added: "Rendez-vous for beginning of demanding task on 1 October."His official title will be "chief negotiator in charge of leading the Commission Taskforce for the Preparation and Conduct of the Negotiations with the United Kingdom" under Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty.The UK has not yet triggered the exit procedure under Article 50, and British prime minister Theresa May suggested it is unlikely the UK will launch the process before the end of the year.Michel Barnier will report directly to Juncker and will have a team of experts at his disposal.He will be regularly invited to the the meeting of the commissioners to brief the college on the negotiations.Juncker said he wanted "an experienced politician for this difficult job", adding: "Michel is a skilled negotiator with rich experience in major policy areas."Most of the negotiations are nevertheless expected to be done by the council, representing member states.They will have to navigate through the difficult two-year negotiations and find a balance between the UK's access to the single market in exchange for some level of freedom of movement from and within the bloc.Barnier's France has been urging for a tough exit deal for Britain, as French president Francois Hollande faces challenge ahead of next year's presidential elections from far-right leader Marine Le Pen, who wants France to hold a referendum on its membership.
Opinion-How to fix the EU 'revolving door'-By Carl Dolan-eeuobserver
BRUSSELS, 26. Jul, 09:03-There were howls of indignation across Europe after former European Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso’s spectacularly ill-timed announcement that he is to join Goldman Sachs as a non-executive chairman and adviser on Brexit.These cries of foul will only grow louder and more frequent in the coming years. The numbers of revolving door cases between the public sector and private consultancy has been climbing in Europe and beyond.In the US, for example, in 1974, 3 percent of retiring senators went on to become lobbyists. In 2012, nearly half of them did.There is no turning back this trend, in part due to the fact our leaders are getting younger and finding themselves out of office at an age when most people are at the peak of their careers.Former British PM David Cameron, now licking his wounds on the backbenches, is 49. Barack Obama will be 55 when he vacates the White House next year. Matteo Renzi, who may see his premiership derailed by yet another referendum this autumn, is 41.They are unlikely to content themselves with decades of golf and after-dinner speeches.-'Cooling off' not the issue-The other driver is the professionalisation of politics.The multiplication of special adviser and political communications posts means that more and more people come to cabinet or other front bench positions from the consultancy sector.When their political careers end, they have both the background and the ready made networks to return there to sell their “strategic advice”.The phenomenon is here to stay, which means that conflicts of interest need to be rigorously policed.Much of the focus in the Barroso case has been on the “cooling off” periods between leaving office and taking up a private sector post.This is just 18 months for former commissioners, in contrast to the five-year ban that applies to cabinet ministers in, for instance, Canada. But it still looks almost stringent in comparison to the complete absence of cooling off periods for MEPs.The Commission must revisit these rules. However, debates about whether 18 months, or two years, or five years is the right figure sidetrack us from the real issue: what can the Commission do to sanction former staff who compromise its integrity.In Barroso’s case, the announcement that he will cash in on Brexit would not have been in any better taste after 24 rather than 20 months.-Barroso's judgement-First, there needs to be an element of due process rather than the trial by media often occasioned by these scandals.This means a rapid decision by the Commission’s ethics committee on this and any new move.But rather than the current old boys’ club appointed by commission president Jean-Claude Juncker, this body should be a reformed, truly independent committee whose meetings, decisions and reasoning are a matter of public record.Second, if this committee finds there has been a breach of the standards of integrity and discretion demanded of former commissioners by the founding EU treaties, it should be able to propose meaningful sanctions.In cases like this, where public service is being monetised, the obvious answer is to hit them in the pocket.At a minimum, this means the suspension of “transition allowances” where former commissioners are paid up to 60 percent of their old salary. Removing this would at least avoid making the European taxpayer top up a generous Goldman Sachs stipend.More importantly, officials who breach ethics standards should not be able to lobby without consequences. Should the ethics committee find against him, it should be clear that Barroso is not welcome to meet EU officials in his new capacity.This should be part of a more general policy that lobbyists who do not play by the rules, whether by refusing to sign up to the EU lobby register or by breaching the Commission’s own standards of integrity, are denied access.This would be a powerful sanction that would make both former Commissioners and those who hire their services think carefully about the value of such transactions.Given the recent history of the EU and his part in it, it is not clear what Barroso was thinking in accepting this offer. As a former Maoist, perhaps he had in mind the Chinese leader’s dictum that “everything under heaven is in utter chaos: the situation is excellent”.It does however demonstrate the main risk of the revolving door: that political judgement is skewed by considerations of personal advantage.In an age when euroscepticism has begun to pose an existential threat to the EU, that needs to be dealt with forcefully by the Commission, which has the most to lose from the career ambitions of its former figureheads.Carl Dolan is director of the Transparency International's liaison office to the European Union
UK's May says model for Brexit deal may not exist yet-[Reuters]-By Gavin Jones-July 27, 2016-YAHOONEWS
ROME (Reuters) - Britain's future ties with the European Union may not mirror any of the existing relationships between non-EU countries and the bloc, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday after meeting her Italian counterpart.The Financial Times reported on Wednesday that international trade minister Liam Fox was pressing May to pull out of the EU's customs union, an area in which there is free movement of goods but where tariffs are imposed on external borders.Fox has said a free trade agreement with the EU was more likely than staying in the customs union, which could restrict Britain's ability to negotiate lower tariffs with other trading partners, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday.Asked about the comments, May said Fox had simply been setting out the technical and legal position about the differences between customs unions and free trade agreements."I'm looking at this with an open mind," she told a news conference following the meeting with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi in Rome."I think we should be developing the model that suits the United Kingdom and the European Union. Not adopting, necessarily, a model that is on the shelf already."May said last month's referendum, ahead of which immigration was a key part of the debate, had sent a clear message that freedom of movement from the EU could not continue as it had in the past. But Britain also needed to get the best possible deal on trade in goods and services, she said.The new British leader, who has embarked on a tour of European capitals since taking office earlier this month, has said Britain needs time to prepare for negotiations with the EU, and so will not trigger the formal exit process this year.Renzi said while he respected Britain's vote, a clear time frame was needed for Brexit."Brexit is Brexit, we cannot open again the discussion, because if we open again the discussion we give the message against the idea of democracy," he said."Italy will do its utmost to collaborate and support the process ... But it's important to have a vision and precise timeline for the process" of Britain leaving the EU."May also said she hoped to be able to address the issue of the rights of EU nationals living in Britain and British citizens living in the EU early on in Brexit talks.(Additional reporting by Steve Scherer and Crispian Balmer in Rome and Kylie MacLellan, William James and William Schomberg in London; editing by Stephen Addison)

Conspiracy theories flourish after Turkey's failed coup-[Reuters]-By Michael Georgy and Mert Ozkan-July 27, 2016-YAHOONEWS
ISTANBUL/ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey's failed coup was financed by the CIA and directed by a retired U.S. army general using a cell in Afghanistan, said one Turkish pro-government newspaper. CIA agents used an island hotel off Istanbul as a nerve center for the plot, said another.Turks are churning out conspiracy theories about who helped orchestrate the abortive military coup that nearly toppled President Tayyip Erdogan, with the United States - a close NATO ally but a traditional object of suspicion - top of the list."The coup was directed by this man," said a front-page headline in the pro-government Yeni Safak newspaper, alongside a photo of retired U.S. Army General John F. Campbell, the last commander of NATO-led forces in Afghanistan and before that the 34th vice chief of staff of the U.S. Army.It said the failed coup had been financed by the CIA via Nigeria's United Bank for Africa , and that two Afghan-based Turkish generals detained in Dubai on Tuesday were part of Campbell's cell of plotters.UBA on Wednesday denied involvement and said the accusations were "clearly false". Campbell told the Wall Street Journal that the allegations were "absolutely ridiculous" and Washington has dismissed claims of U.S. involvement as absurd.Erdogan has blamed U.S.-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen for masterminding the attempted coup, which killed more than 240 people as rogue soldiers commandeered fighter jets, helicopters and tanks, and has called on Washington to extradite him.Erdogan accuses Gulen of building a "parallel structure" in the judiciary, education system, media and military in a bid to overthrow him, a charge the 75-year-old cleric denies. A poll on Tuesday showed two thirds of Turks believe Gulen was behind the coup plot, though only 3.8 percent blamed the United States.Prime Minister Binali Yildirim has said any country that stands by the cleric would be considered at war with Turkey. Labour Minister Suleyman Soylu said a day after the coup bid that it was clear "America is behind it", though Erdogan's spokesman later said he had spoken "in the heat of the moment".Washington has said it will only extradite Gulen if Turkey provides evidence of wrongdoing.For Erdogan's fervent supporters, such apparent reluctance is further evidence of U.S. complicity."I know that the United States has a finger in this. I know that this is a play put on by the United States, Israel and the United Kingdom," said Ahmet Demirci, among the dozens of people to have gathered in solidarity outside Erdogan's palace night after night since the July 15 coup attempt."That dishonest man, Fethullah Gulen is their pawn."Older Turks recall past coups. Many see evidence that the United States backed a 1980 coup, at the height of the Cold War, citing reports that the CIA station chief in Ankara cabled Washington to say "our boys did it".Mystery still shrouds modern Turkey's first coup in 1960 which overthrew a pro-American prime minister but was led by a U.S.-trained officer.One newspaper published a photograph of a hotel it identified as a nerve center for CIA agents it said helped hatch the coup plot this month."The CIA was at work in this hotel that night," the headline in the pro-government Sabah newspaper said, above a photo of the Splendid Hotel on Buyukada, the largest of a group of islands in the Marmara sea just off Istanbul.The paper said a group of 17 people, mostly foreigners, checked in at the hotel on the day of the coup attempt. It said the hotel was used as a headquarters for the British army during its occupation of Istanbul in 1919.-CONSOLIDATING POWER-A successful overthrow of Erdogan, who has run the country of about 80 million people since 2003, could have sent Turkey spiraling into conflict. The intrigue in the aftermath is helping justify a wide crackdown, analysts say, with more than 60,000 soldiers, police, civil servants and other officials detained, suspended or under investigation."This has helped him strengthen his position," said Andrew Finkel, a journalist and political analyst based in Turkey since 1989. "He is doing what he does best, consolidating power."Conspiracy theories have spiced up Turkish crises for decades amid the struggle between Islamists and secularists to shape the country, with superpower America often accused of fuelling the fire. Erdogan blamed foreign powers for stirring up nationwide anti-government protests three years ago.Sometimes the perceived enemy is less formidable.During contentious local elections in 2014, seen as a referendum on Erdogan's rule, power cuts disrupted the count. Turkey's energy minister blamed a cat, saying it had walked into a transformer unit, drawing ridicule from social media users who portrayed a "cat lobby" threatening the government.In 2013, authorities detained a bird on suspicion it was spying for Israel, but freed it after X-rays showed it was not embedded with surveillance equipment, local newspapers said.Nevertheless, Turks take their conspiracies seriously and the latest tensions are providing fresh material.Gulen lives in a secluded compound in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains. But Erdogan has good reason to worry about the reclusive cleric's reach inside Turkey.In 2013, his followers in the police and judiciary opened a corruption probe into business associates of Erdogan, then prime minister, who denounced the investigations as a foreign plot."Why don't they hand him over? Why do they keep making insinuations? He (Gulen) lives there. Don't you think this is an apparent indicator? This is the impression people have," said Erdogan supporter Ayhan Onkibar outside the presidential palace."Why does he live in the United States? These are details we notice."(Additional reporting by Ayla Jean Yackley, Melih Aslan and David Dolan; Editing by Nick Tattersall and Anna Willard)
Goodbye Philae: Earth severs link with silent comet probe-AFP Relax News•July 27, 2016-YAHOONEWS
Ground controllers bid a final farewell Wednesday to robot lab Philae, cutting communications after a year-long silence with the tiny probe hurtling through space on the surface of a comet."Today communication with Philae was stopped," Andreas Schuetz of German space agency DLR told AFP from ground control in Cologne."This is the end of a... fascinating and successful mission for the public and for science."The decision to cut the link was taken to save energy on mothership Rosetta, orbiting around comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, for the final weeks of its own historic mission.Its batteries depleted, Philae's last succesful communication with Earth was on July 9 last year. The lines had been left open on the very small chance of it coming back to life.Under the hashtag #GoodbyePhilae, the European Space Agency (ESA) tweeted on behalf of Rosetta: "Thinking of the wonderful adventures I had with @Philae 2014 at Comet #67P@."On the eve of the break, Philae tweeted: "It's time for me to say goodbye. Tomorrow, the unit on @ESA_Rosetta for communication with me will be switched off forever..."The washing machine-sized probe has been on 67P's surface since November 12, 2014, an exciting part of the ESA's groundbreaking Rosetta mission to probe a comet for clues to the origins of life on Earth.Rosetta remains in 67P's orbit, but as the comet moves further and further away from the Sun with its battery-boosting rays, the spacecraft needs to save all the energy it can."We need to maximise the power available to Rosetta's scientific instruments, and thus had no choice but to turn off the ESS," ESA senior science advisor Mark McCaughrean told AFP.ESS stands for the Electrical Support System Processor Unit on board of Rosetta, which was used for Philae to send home the results of its science experiments and intermittent status reports.Rosetta's own mission will come to an end on September 30, when it makes a crash landing to join stranded Philae on the comet surface.
Austria to extradite Pakistani over suspected Paris attack links-[Reuters]-July 27, 2016-YAHOONEWS
VIENNA (Reuters) - A Pakistani man suspected of links to the jihadists who killed 130 people in Paris in November will be extradited to France, an Austrian court spokesman said on Wednesday.He and an Algerian man came into contact with the Paris attackers in Austria, Austrian newspaper Salzburger Nachrichten reported after the men were arrested in a refugee center in the city of Salzburg last December.The Algerian man would also be extradited following a ruling by a court in Salzburg, news agency Austria Presse Agentur reported, but no one at that court was available for comment.French newspaper Le Monde has reported that the two men traveled together from Syria to the Greek island of Leros with the two Iraqi brothers who blew themselves up near the Stade de France national stadium outside Paris on Nov. 13."The extradition of the Pakistani man was declared admissible," a spokesman for a regional court in the Austrian city of Linz said, declining to give any further details.The two men were first arrested on Leros during a passport check on Oct. 3, as one of them could not speak Arabic very well and the other was unable to describe Aleppo, which was cited as his birthplace on his passport, the Le Parisien paper has said.Both men were released three weeks later and went to Austria, where they were arrested again.(Reporting by Shadia Nasralla; Editing by Louise Ireland)
Merkel faces backlash after killings By Eszter Zalan-july 27,16-euobserver
BRUSSELS, Today, 09:17-German chancellor Angela Merkel faces a political backlash over her open-door policy for migrants after several attacks in the country.The four brutal killings in Germany's south, three of which were carried out by asylum-seekers, have shocked Germans and emboldened critics of Merkel's welcoming refugee policy to blame her for the attacks.“People are scared, completely understandably, and right now they need a credible answer from politicians,” said minister president of Bavaria Horst Seehofer, adding that it was “finally time to address people’s fears”.Seehofer, leader of CSU, the sister party to Merkel's CDU, has long been critical of Merkel's migration policy and now criticises her for "dodging the issue".The “policy of open borders cannot be tolerated any more”, he said, adding that terrorists were “using the [refugee] routes to enter Germany”.Merkel has tried to project calm, staying put in her summer cottage.But due to the mounting pressure on her, she has called for a news conference for Thursday.Merkel's government is arguing that three of the four assailants arrived in Germany before the chancellor's decision to open Germany's borders.The fourth killer, a teenager who went on a shooting rampage in Munich on Friday, was born and raised in Germany, the son of Iranian asylum seekers who arrived in the 1990s. Investigators ruled out an Islamist motive in that case.At a joint press conference with Seehofer on Tuesday, Bavarian interior minister Joachim Herrmann said he would push to allow the German army to be deployed within the country in the case of future attacks.They also argued for making it easier to deport asylum seekers, even to war zones, if they have committed criminal offences.Herrmann also said no asylum seeker should be allowed into Germany if they cannot prove their identity."What we always warned of has now happened," Frauke Petry, leader of the right-wing populist AfD party, said in a statement after the killings.The AfD, which has gained support on an anti-Islam stance, aims to make a strong showing in the polls in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania on 4 September.An AfD win would deal a powerful blow to Merkel a year before the general elections.
Armed standoff heats up in Armenian capital as gunmen seize hostages-[By Hasmik Mkrtchyan]-July 27, 2016-YAHOONEWS
YEREVAN (Reuters) - Armed men holed up at a police station in Armenia's capital Yerevan took several doctors hostage on Wednesday, ratcheting up tension in their 10-day standoff with security forces.The group of 30 gunmen seized the police station on July 17, killing a police officer, wounding two others and taking hostage nine officers.They have demanded the release of jailed opposition politician Jirair Sefilian and the resignation of President Serzh Sarksyan.After negotiations with security forces, they released four remaining captives on Saturday, but refused to surrender.One policeman and four gunmen were wounded in a shootout last night, police said. A policeman and two gunmen were taken to hospital, while two wounded gunmen stayed at the police station."The armed group took hostage the doctors sent to the police station to give medical aid to the wounded gunmen," the police said in a statement.Armenia's national security service called on the gunmen to lay down their arms, free the hostages and surrender. It set no deadline.Any police operation to storm the seized station would be complicated. Dozens of people are gathering nearby every day, demanding that bloodshed be avoided.The U.S. Embassy said it was worried by the situation."We are especially concerned by media reports today that medical personnel have been detained in the Erebuni Police building," the embassy said in a statement. "Such actions are unacceptable, and if true, we call for the immediate and safe release of these individuals."The gunmen said the doctors had been asked to stay rather than taken hostage."They just want the doctors to be there permanently to help the wounded guys," Alex Yenikomshian, a member of the opposition Founding Parliament movement, told reporters.Their jailed leader, Sefilian, is accused by the ex-Soviet state's authorities of plotting civil unrest. Sefilian was jailed in June over allegations of illegally possessing weapons.A former military commander, Sefilian has accused Armenian leader Sarksyan of mishandling a long-running conflict between Armenian-backed separatists in the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan and Azeri forces.A Moscow-brokered ceasefire halted four days of violence in the South Caucasus region in April, the worst flare-up in years.

DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran will hold its next presidential election in May 2017, state news agencies said on Wednesday, a vote in which moderate President Hassan Rouhani may seek a second term to push ahead with reforms resisted by powerful hardliners.The Guardian Council, a body of Shi'ite Muslim clerics and jurists that oversees elections, said in a letter to the ministry that it had agreed on a date of May 19 proposed by the ministry, according to students news agency ISNA said.Rouhani last year struck a deal with world powers on curbing Iran's nuclear program in exchange for relief from sanctions and has sought to open Iran's economy to foreign investors.He is eligible to run for a second four-year term.Iranian officials have said that the election would be held earlier than usual so as not to coincide with the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan which starts in late May.(Reporting by Dubai newsroom; editing by Sami Aboudi and Mark Heinrich)
Syrian army says cut off all supply routes into east Aleppo-[Reuters]-July 27, 2016-YAHOONEWS
BEIRUT (Reuters) - The Syrian army said on Wednesday it had cut off all supply routes into eastern Aleppo, and the government air-dropped thousands of leaflets there, asking residents to cooperate with the army and calling on fighters to surrender.President Bashar al Assad's initiative comes a day after the United Nations said it hopes to restart peace talks in August.Previous attempts at a diplomatic solution to end Syria's five-year-old civil war collapsed in April, partly due to an uptick in violence in Aleppo.On Tuesday, the army texted residents to ask them to leave the city and to give up their weapons.Concern for those trapped in the rebel-held part of Aleppo is rising. The U.N. aid chief asked on Monday for weekly 48-hour pauses in fighting to allow food and aid to be delivered.Once Syria's largest city, Aleppo has been divided between rebel-controlled and government-held sectors all through the civil war. Taking full control of the city would be a significant victory for Assad.An advance by pro-government forces around the only remaining supply route into the eastern sector this month enabled them to fire on it at close range, making the battlefront Castello road too deadly to use and putting at least 250,000 people in rebel-held districts under siege."(Armed forces) have cut all supply routes and crossings which terrorists used to bring mercenaries, weapons and ammunition into the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo," a statement from the Syrian military general command said.The government refers to all rebels as terrorists.The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said eastern Aleppo had been under effective siege since July 11, and advances in recent days by pro-government forces had strengthened their control of the only route in."Today there is no way at all to bring anything into Aleppo," Observatory Director Rami Abdulrahman said.(Reporting by Lisa Barrington; Editing by Louise Ireland)
British-Bangladeshi survivor of cafe attack held at unknown location - lawyer-[By Serajul Quadir and Douglas Busvine]-July 27, 2016-YAHOONEWS
DHAKA/NEW DELHI (Reuters) - A man who was celebrating his daughter's 13th birthday with his family in a Dhaka cafe when they were caught up in a bloody hostage-taking nearly four weeks ago is still being held as a suspect, the family's lawyer said on Wednesday.Hasnat Karim, a 47-year-old engineer who holds dual British and Bangladeshi citizenship, survived the ordeal in which 22 hostages died at the hands of Islamist militants because he and his family were Muslims and could recite verses from the Koran.But, after witnesses said he agreed to a demand to act as a human shield, Karim became a suspect in the July 1 attack claimed by Syria-based militant group Islamic State.His wife and their two children were released after two days of questioning, but Karim continues to be held at an unknown location without access to his lawyers, according to Rodney Dixon, hired as international counsel by the family on Wednesday."He was there for his daughter's birthday, and got caught up as a hostage himself, together with his family," Dixon told Reuters in a telephone interview from London. "No evidence has been pointed to, and there is none which would show that he was in any way involved in committing any crime."Human rights groups including Amnesty International have called on Bangladesh to either charge or release Karim.In one of the most brazen attacks in the South Asian nation's history, gunmen stormed the Holey Artisan Bakery, a cafe in Dhaka's diplomatic quarter that was packed on a Friday evening with locals and expatriates.They killed non-Muslims and foreigners - including Italians, Japanese and an American - before security forces ended the 12-hour siege. Karim made a phone call at the behest of the gunmen to a relative during the attack, and he his family were released before security forces stormed the building, giving rise to suspicions that he was complicit in the attack.-INVESTIGATION CONTINUES-Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan told reporters on Tuesday that the investigation into Karim was continuing and until it is completed and police are satisfied he is innocent, he would not be released."We will not victimise any innocent people and we will not also spare anyone, whoever (they) may be, if he or she is found guilty," Khan said.Karim had earlier taught at Dhaka's private North South University, where one of the five assailants had studied and where four other faculty members had been fired over links to a local militant group called Hizb-ut Tahrir.Yet the university said Karim had not been suspected of links to any militant group. His family says he left to work in his father's engineering business.Karim lived in Britain between the ages of 11 and 32, studying engineering at London's Queen Mary University before pursuing further studies in the United States and then returning home.Lawyer Dixon said Karim was "not political at all" and had no links to radical Islamist groups."(His family) have all said this was the worst time of their entire life – and on top of that to have Hasnat arrested now for being involved in all of this is something which is impossible for them to comprehend," said Dixon.Britain's Foreign and Commonwealth Office said its staff in Dhaka was in contact with the authorities following the detention of a Bangladeshi-British citizen and had requested consular access."We cannot interfere with the legal system of another country, just as other countries cannot interfere with the justice system in the UK," an FCO spokeswoman said.Dixon said he would also file a petition to the United Nations Human Rights Commission in Geneva to try and get Karim's detention declared unlawful and for steps to be taken to secure his release.(Additional reporting by Estelle Shirbon in London; Writing by Douglas Busvine Editing by Jeremy Gaunt)

Canadian Coast Guard discovers shipwreck off Nova Scotia coast-[CBC]-July 26, 2016-YAHOONEWS
The Canadian Coast Guard uncovered a mystery earlier this month while trawling the waters off Nova Scotia.Several large wooden fragments of a ship, believed to date back to the 19th century, were pulled from the ocean floor off the coast south of Yarmouth.According to David Jennings, with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, the CCGS Alfred Needler was conducting dragging operations on Georges Bank as part of the annual fish survey conducted for the DFO.But instead of fish, their nets hauled in parts of a shipwreck.An antique ship in a fishnet-"It's fairly rare. I've been here quite a while and it's the first time I've heard of them bringing up an antique ship in a fishing net," said David Jennings, a spokesman for the DFO.The coast guard vessel brought the fragments to be unloaded in Dartmouth, where Katie Cottreau-Robins, curator of archeology for the Nova Scotia Museum, and her team were waiting to inspect the pieces."It's exciting to see something of that antiquity and to have a chance to view it up close and try to understand what it is and what it represents," Cottreau-Robins said.-Significant fragments-She says while some parts had suffered from being exposed to ocean elements for so long, other sections were quite well-preserved."A couple of these pieces were quite significant — one approximately 20 feet [six metres] long and two tonnes," she said. "We have a section of the hull where there's copper sheathing on the outside and we could see that very clearly, and all the rivets holding the copper onto the frame," she said.The wreck of the Marion C? Nova Scotia maintains a shipwreck database and preliminary research done by the Nova Scotia Museum found a couple of records Cottreau-Robins says are good potential matches for what the coast guard pulled from the ocean — a later 19th century wooden-framed vessel.The Orion was one vessel to pique their interest. It was built in Sweden in 1877 and was in the Maritimes in 1905, loaded with salt from Spain bound for Saint John, when it encountered bad weather and ended up being towed into Halifax.In 1906, the ship, now named the Marion C, was part of the British fleet when it sprung a leak while sailing from Bridgewater, N.S., to New York and sank in the general location the wreck was discovered by the coast guard.-Trying to uncover the story-"This is preliminary research and we like to take out time and we'll continue to look at other resources and references and try to tell the story," she said. The fragments are currently being held at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography and Cottreau-Robins says her team will continue their research while trying to determine what will come of the fragments."We have to think about what is best," she said. "Do we leave these significant pieces just out on a dock somewhere under a tarp? Is there a wet pit available? Is there an area close by where we can submerge these pieces so they don't degrade further and we know where they are and we can look at them again if we want to do further research?

Calgary police seize $200,000 worth of drugs following 2-month investigation-[CBC]-July 26, 2016-YAHOONEWS
Police have seized roughly $200,000 worth of drugs and two men are facing charges following a two-month investigation.Launched in June after receiving a tip that a man was both manufacturing and selling drugs in the Calgary area, the investigation concluded Friday when police stopped a car and found various amounts of fentanyl, cocaine, heroin and cash inside, along with a fentanyl pill press.That led police to a home in the 6400 block of Fourth Street N.E. where officers discovered a magic mushroom growing operation, a cocaine pill press and a pellet gun.A 31-year-old man from Calgary is facing charges ranging from manufacturing cocaine, fentanyl and magic mushrooms, possession of heroin and possession of property obtained by crime.A 32-year-old man, also from Calgary, was charged with being unlawfully at large.
1 Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land,(EARTH) because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.
2 By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.
3 Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.
2 I will utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the LORD.
3 I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumblingblocks with the wicked; and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the LORD.
6 I will also water with thy blood the land wherein thou swimmest, even to the mountains; and the rivers shall be full of thee.
7 And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light.
8 All the bright lights of heaven will I make dark over thee, and set darkness upon thy land, saith the Lord GOD.
9 I will also vex the hearts of many people, when I shall bring thy destruction among the nations, into the countries which thou hast not known.

11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood:(bitter,Poisoned) and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.(poisoned)

4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.
5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.

Husky clarifies timeline of North Saskatchewan River oil spill discovery-[CBC]-July 26, 2016-YAHOONEWS
Husky Energy issued a release on Tuesday afternoon as a "clarification" of the timeline surrounding the leak of 200-250 cubic meters of oil into the North Saskatchewan River. Earlier in the day, the provincial government released a report on the incident that Husky had filed with the Ministry of Economy. That report said the company discovered a "pipeline release" or oil leak on the edge of the river last Wednesday night. That was about 14 hours before it notified the government and shut off the flow.The incident report says that on July 20 at 8 p.m. CST "a pipeline release was discovered on the south shore of the North Saskatchewan River."However, the company now says that report was incorrect; that Husky didn't know at that time that there had definitely been a "pipeline release."In an email, Husky communications official Mel Duval confirmed with CBC that the report submitted to government was incorrect.Husky now says "at approximately 8 p.m. the pipeline monitoring system indicated pressure anomalies as several segments of the pipeline system were being returned to service. This is common during startup operations."-'Did not identify a leak'-It said as a result of those anomalies the company analysed the data and sent a crew to have a look at the area but it "did not identify a leak." In addition, the company said that early Thursday morning it conducted an aerial surveillance of the area. Early Tuesday, Al Pate, who's heading up Husky's response to the spill initially told media the pipeline wasn't shut off until Thursday morning around 10 a.m. "The crews were on site shutting in the pipeline Thursday morning," said Pate. That's also when Husky notified the provincial government of the spill.However Husky is updating that information as well. It now says "we decided as a further precaution to start safe shut down procedures at about 6 a.m."When asked about the confusion and unanswered questions related to the timeline Pate said, "there will be a very full and comprehensive investigation that will deal with timing and those issues, but right now we're focused on the response."When asked about the spill last Friday, Ministry of Environment spokesperson Wes Kotyk praised Husky for how cooperative it had been.Kotyk told reporters the province had been notified as soon as the spill was detected."The company responsible, Husky Energy, has been very cooperative and as soon as they were aware of the incident they notified us," Kotyk said. "And they are working cooperatively to address any of the requirements that we've been having them do to address the situation."The province said that Husky informed the ministry at the time they were able to confirm that a leak had occurred. "The company is not obligated to inform the ministry of initial monitoring, or fluctuations in its line— only when it has actually confirmed the leak," a spokesperson for the ministry said in an email. Pate told reporters he stands by the company's estimate that 200-250 cubic meters of oil were spilled. "You know the key part here is we have very high confidence in the volume of spill. So we've got a sophisticated system that's commonly used throughout industry."Company had an emergency response plan: Deputy minister-The deputy minister for the Ministry of Economy, which regulates pipelines, said Husky has an emergency response plan in place, filed with the government. But Laurie Pushor doesn't know if it was followed. "We want to do a complete and thorough review just so that we can understand what all their procedures and policies were, how their response related to that and of course what specifically happened in this instance," said Pushor.He explained that most emergency response plans require the company to take immediate action. "And proper notifications is a normal first step in those responses. So you want to deploy people to the scene and at the same time you want to be alerting all of the appropriate officials that should be alerted," Pushor said. "Part of what a review needs to do is clarify exactly what was known when and how people responded and who was alerted when and so on,"He said once that review is complete the government will be transparent about the results and he promised it will release Husky's emergency response plan. Pushor said Husky inspected this pipeline as recently as 2015. He said the company has an ongoing spot-check regime, monitoring the surface and the pipe itself. He also pointed out that the province does inspections of its own. However he couldn't say how many inspectors the ministry employs and he didn't know when or if provincial officials had inspected this particular pipeline.

Strong storms roll through Philadelphia during convention-[Associated Press]-July 25, 2016-YAHOONEWS
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Severe storms with lightning, heavy rain and strong winds rolled through Philadelphia during the Democratic convention Monday night, leading city officials to urge political protesters and rally attendees to seek shelter and organizers to recommend that media members evacuate a tent outside the arena.The Philadelphia Office of Emergency Management urged those in FDR Park to seek shelter beneath an interstate underpass after the National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm and flash flood warning for the city.The park near the Wells Fargo Center is one of the main protest sites and was filled with both Bernie Sanders supporters and those listening to Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein when the storm hit.Protesters largely scattered as rain pelted the crowds gathered outside the arena. While dozens of Sanders supporters stood firm as delegate busses drove past the fences and they continued their chants of "Shut them down!" others ran for shelter.Organizers also recommended that media members evacuate a tent in the parking lot of the Wells Fargo Center, saying that it was not designed "to fully protect inhabitants in the event of a direct lightning strike."Video posted by members of the media showed the roof of the temporary tent swaying and water pouring in.

California wildfire forces shutdown of famed Big Sur parks-[The Canadian Press]-July 26, 2016-YAHOONEWS
BIG SUR, Calif. — California's signature parks along the Big Sur coastline that draw thousands of daily visitors were closed Tuesday as one of the state's two major wildfires threatened the scenic region at the height of the summer tourism season.To the south, firefighters made progress containing a huge blaze in mountains outside Los Angeles, allowing authorities to let most of 20,000 people evacuated over the weekend to return home. In Wyoming, a large backcountry wildfire in the Shoshone National Forest put about 290 homes and guest ranches at risk.The Big Sur fire threatened a long stretch of pristine, forested mountains hugging the coast and sent smoke billowing over the famed Pacific Coast Highway, which remained open with few if any flames visible to motorists but a risk that the blaze could reach beloved campgrounds, lodges and redwoods near the shore."It is folly to predict where this fire will go," said California state parks spokesman Dennis Weber.The Los Angeles-area fire has destroyed 18 homes since it started and authorities over the weekend discovered a burned body in a car identified Tuesday as a man who refused to be evacuated.A woman living in the house Robert Bresnick was visiting left with firefighters but he went back inside the house. The body of Bresnick, 67, was found about 20 minutes later Saturday in the car after flames tore through the neighbourhood , said Los Angeles County Coroner's Assistant Ed Winter.The Big Sur closures were put into place for parks that draw 7,500 visitors daily from around the world for their dramatic vistas of ocean and mountains. Campgrounds were closed because of the dangers smoke could pose to visitors but could reopen soon if the blaze is held back by firefighters.Jim Newby, a Phoenix-area tourist, drove along the Pacific Coast Highway with his family and was disappointed at the smoke."We wanted to see more of the ocean," Newby said. "We didn't see a whole lot of it unfortunately, and it's a beautiful, beautiful stretch."The park shutdowns came as a fire that started Friday just north of Big Sur grew Tuesday to 36 square miles (93 square kilometres ) but was just 10 per cent contained. Twenty homes have burned in the zone, residents of 300 more were ordered to evacuate and more than 2,000 firefighters were trying to douse the blaze.The Wyoming fire in a remote region burned nearly 11 square miles (28 square kilometres ) and forced the evacuations of 900 people but no homes had burned by Tuesday afternoon, authorities said.In neighbouring Bridger-Teton National Forest, a fire grew to 26 square miles (67 square miles) and was partially contained. Two smaller fires were burning in the Bighorn National Forest.In Southern California, the fire in rugged wilderness between the northern edge of Los Angeles and the suburban city of Santa Clarita grew to 59 square miles (153 square kilometres ).But authorities said Tuesday they had managed to contain 25 per cent of the area, meaning the flames there had been isolated and were not expected to spread. They warned, however, that the fire was still extremely dangerous and would take time to put out."We're not really out of the woods," said U.S. Forest Service spokesman Justin Correll. "We're not ready to relax. There's still a lot of firefighting to do."Acting Gov. Tom Torlakson, substituting for Gov. Jerry Brown who is at the Democratic National Convention with other top state officials, declared a state of emergency for both fires on Tuesday night. The move frees up funding and relaxes regulations to help with the firefight and the recovery.The 3,000 firefighters faced another day of temperatures in the 90s to low 100s as they fought the fire, aided by fleets aircraft dropping retardant and water and hundreds of fire engines.Some neighbourhoods in Santa Clarita, population about 200,000, remained off limits Tuesday because of the fire. But most evacuations ordered for about 10,000 homes with an estimated 20,000 residents were lifted.Lane Leavitt, who trains stunt actors and specializes in setting people on fire for movies and television, was relieved when he returned home Monday evening to find his home and business fully intact."It's a miracle everything was there," he said from his home across the street from a ranch used to make movies where the sets were incinerated.Friends and clients from around the world called and texted Leavitt, worried he lost everything after he abandoned the house with fire burning on two sides of it.He texted back: "We're still standing."___Antczak reported from Los Angeles.

Pope says attacks shows "world is at war", religion not to blame-[Reuters]-July 27, 2016-YAHOONEWS
ABOARD PAPAL PLANE (Reuters) - Pope Francis said on Wednesday that a string of recent attacks, including the murder of a priest in France, was proof that the "world is at war".However, speaking to reporters aboard a plane taking him to Poland, the pope said he was not talking about a war of religion, but rather one of domination of peoples and economic interests."The word that is being repeated often is insecurity, but the real word is war," he said in brief comments to reporters while flying to southern Poland for a five-day visit."Let's recognise it. The world is in a state of war in bits and pieces," he said, adding that the attacks could be seen as another world war, specifically mentioning World War One and Two."Now there is this one (war). It is perhaps not organic but it is organised and it is war," he said. "We should not be afraid to speak this truth. The world is at war because it has lost peace."About 15 minutes later, after greeting journalists individually, Francis took the microphone again and said he wanted "to clarify" that he was not referring to a war of religion."Not a war of religion. There is a war of interests. There is a war for money. There is a war for natural resources. There is a war for domination of peoples. This is the war," he said."All religions want peace. Others want war. Do you understand?" he said.He called Jacques Hamel, the priest forced to his knees by Islamist militants on Tuesday who then slit his throat, "a saintly priest", but said he was just one of many innocent victims.He thanked the many people around the world who have sent their condolences over the killing of Father Hamel, particularly French President Francois Hollande, who spoke to the Pope on Tuesday.(Reporting by Philip Pullella; Editing by Crispian Balmer and Larry King)
