Five killed in attack on church in Russia's DagestanA man in Russia's southern province of Dagestan shot into a crowd of people leaving a church on Sunday, killing five and injuring at least five others, Russian news agencies reported, citing the local health ministry. The attack occurred in the village of Kizlyar in the Muslim-majority republic of Dagestan, agencies said. The small republic in the Caucasus mountains borders Chechnya, where Moscow has led two wars against separatists and radical religious groups since the 1991 Soviet collapse and which has seen a large number of people join Islamic State. Russian news agencies said the attack occurred as churchgoers celebrated Maslenitsa, a Christian holiday marking the last day before Lent according to the eastern Orthodox calendar. The assailant was identified as a 22-year-old man local to the region, the TASS news agency said, citing the investigative committee. He was shot and killed by security services who were on duty nearby, TASS said, adding that a hunting rifle, bullets and a knife were discovered on his person. Initial reports suggested all five victims were women, TASS said, citing the local branch of the interior ministry. The injured include two members of local security services and two civilians, also women, the Interfax news agency said.  Islamic State claimed responsibility for a the shooting, according to the militant group's news agency Amaq, although it did not provide immediate evidence for the claim.

Day turns into night as Indonesia's Mount Sinabung spews towering ash cloud in biggest eruption this year

Day turns into night as Indonesia's Mount Sinabung spews towering ash cloud in biggest eruption this yearMount Sinabung in Indonesia has erupted once again shooting plumes of smoke and hot ash over 23,000 feet into the air. The volcano had not been active for four centuries until 2010 and since then it has displaced 30,000 people.  Indonesia on Monday raised flight warnings around the volcano on Sumatra island to their highest level after its biggest eruption this year.

Credit: TIBTA PANGIN/Source: AFP Areas around the crater of the volcano, located about 1,181 miles northwest of the capital, Jakarta, have been off-limits for several years because of frequent volcanic activity. The Bureau of Meteorology's Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre (VACC), in Australia's northern city of Darwin, issued maps on Monday showing an ash cloud heading in three directions from Sinabung, to the north, northwest and south-southeast. Indonesia also upgraded its Volcano Observatory Notice for Aviation (VONA) to red, its highest warning, and said the ash-cloud top had reached 23,872 feet, according to a ground observer.

Nur Isnin Istianto, head of the regional airport authority, said Kutacane airport in Aceh province had been closed, but the wind direction allowed the airport of Kualanamu, Meulaboh and Silangit to remain open. Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, a spokesman for Indonesia's Disaster Agency, said the eruption began on Monday morning, accompanied by multiple earthquakes and showering surrounding villages with small rocks. "In five districts it became dark with a visibility of about 5 metres," he said in a statement.

The agency urged the public to stay out of a 4-mile exclusion zone around the crater, and watch for further warnings, which could cover floods. The 8,071-ft tall volcano is among Indonesia's most active. When Sinabung erupted in 2014, more than a dozen people were killed and thousands were evacuated.

Fire at sacred Tibetan Buddhist temple sparks suspicion about censorship
02:43 AM, 02.18.2018

Fire at sacred Tibetan Buddhist temple sparks suspicion about censorshipA fire broke out at one of the most sacred temples in Tibetan Buddhism, prompting concern and suspicion that information on the incident is being controlled by authorities. Chinese State media said the fire at "part of" Jokhang Temple in Lhasa, the capital of the south-western Chinese region of Tibet, "was soon put out" after it began at 6.40pm on Saturday. Images posted online showed flames billowing from a pagoda at the sacred building, which was built in the seventh century. Some of the clips showed flames appearing to engulf the Unesco World Heritage Site when it was dark, suggesting that the fire might have continued for longer than an hour. Jokhang houses the Jowo Shakyamuni, a glittering statue believed to have been blessed by Shakyamuni Buddha, the founder of the religion. It is said to be just one of just three to be crafted during his actual lifetime. Devastating news from Lhasa of the Jokhang temple on fire. pic.twitter.com/LXiIlvc7V5— Robert Barnett (@RobbieBarnett) February 17, 2018 Observers on Twitter - which is blocked in China - claimed that information relating the fire was being censored online. Robert Barnett, a British expert on Tibet, Tweeted: "Sources in Lhasa claim police have threatened anyone distributing pictures or unofficial news about the fire. "Locals afraid to talk. Official information extremely limited, raising concern about extent of damage. Access to area round temple said to be restricted." #Jokhang fire: sources in Lhasa claim police have threatened anyone distributing pictures or unofficial news about the fire; locals afraid to talk. Official information extremely limited, raising concern about extent of damage. Access to area round temple said to be restricted.— Robert Barnett (@RobbieBarnett) February 17, 2018 China has ruled Tibet since the 1950s, and Beijing claims that it has helped improve the lives of ordinary Tibetans by bringing economic growth to a traditionally poor region. However, many accuse China of suppressing rights in the region and stifling the local Buddhist culture. Tibet has seen outbreaks of ethic tension, including riots in 2008 and a wave of self-immolations carried out in protest of Beijing's tightening grip. State media reports on the fire have contained few details. China is deleting posts about the alleged fire in the Jokhang Temple. The topic has been one of the hottest topics and most searched topic today on Chinese social media. Yet there is no single personal post and was removed in the cyberspace immediately. pic.twitter.com/KDlF87oX2t— Tseringkyi (@dreamlhasa) February 17, 2018 Tibetans began celebrating traditional Tibetan New Year that last Friday. The temple would have been expecting thousands of visitors  over the next few days. Tsering Woeser, a Tibetan writer in Beijing told The New York Times: “I pray that the fire isn’t serious and that the old buildings haven’t suffered too much damage. “For Tibetans, the Jokhang is the holiest of holy sites.”

Polish-Jewish relations at 30-year low, chief rabbi says 
11:21 AM, 02.19.2018

Polish-Jewish relations at 30-year low, chief rabbi says Poland’s chief rabbi has said Polish-Jewish relations are at their worst for 30 years as controversy rages over a new law that critics claim is an attempt to whitewash Polish crimes against Jews during the Second World War. Michael Schudrich’s comments came just hours after vandals scrawled swastikas and anti-Polish statements on the Polish embassy in Tel Aviv, demonstrating the level of anger over the law, which has made it a criminal offence to blame the Polish nation or state for crimes by the Third Reich. Over the weekend Mateusz Morawiecki, the Polish prime minister, provoked even more anger in Israel and among Jews worldwide when, speaking in defence of the law, he said Jews were also perpetrators of the Holocaust. “Sadly [Polish-Jewish] relations are the worst I can remember,” Rabbi Schudrich said in a radio interview on Monday. “This is the worst moment in 30 years. “I am, and I hope I always will be, an optimist,” he continued. “But now I am an optimist with a broken heart.” Earlier, Benyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, had tweeted that he considered the Polish prime minister’s comments “outrageous” and that he wanted to address the issue with Mr Morawiecki. On Monday Jacek Czaputowicz, Poland’s foreign minister, said he had called upon the Israeli authorities to ensure the safety of the Polish embassy and to catch the perpetrators of the swastika attack. Tzipi Hotovely, the deputy Israeli foreign minister, tweeted that the attack on the embassy was “unacceptable and has no plane in a democracy that honours the rule of law.” Both the Polish and Israeli governments have called for calm dialogue over the law but Israelis have becoming increasingly dismayed that despite the calls, and international protests, Warsaw has shown no sign or any willingness to alter the law.


 
France to let wolf packs grow despite angry farmers
09:59 AM, 02.19.2018

France to let wolf packs grow despite angry farmersThe French government announced Monday it will allow the wolf population to grow 40 percent despite pressure from farmers in mountain regions who are worried about their sheep flocks. A new strategy unveiled by the centrist government of President Emmanuel Macron will enable the number of wolves to increase from an estimated 360 now to 500 by 2023. Hunting wiped out the grey wolf in France during the 1930s and they only returned in 1992 via Italy -- currently home to around 2,000 wolves -- before spreading into Switzerland and Germany.

Now juice stores are giving out Bitcoin as a competition prizeIt's not just cashed-up dads jumping on cryptocurrencies, juice companies are doing the same too. Australian juice chain Boost have launched a competition where customers can win one Bitcoin, if they can correctly guess the price of the cryptocurrency at 12 p.m. the following Monday.  SEE ALSO: Say hello to Buttcoin and the community celebrating Bitcoin's fall Only one person can choose a certain price, to ensure there's no splitting of the prize. At the time of writing, one BTC is equal to $10,569 (A$13,387.76), but as we've seen lately BTC's price has been fluctuating a lot in recent weeks. Boost will have one BTC a week to win over four weeks. Like any in-store competition you'll need to buy a juice to get an entry code, which you can enter in the chain's app and guess BTC's prospective price. As for people who might not be following the cryptocurrency rollercoaster, you can also get the app to pick a price for you. Boost's effort is the latest in a string of cryptocurrency-aligned competitions: There's a puzzle game which lets you win one BTC if you can successfully crack it.  Surely investing in cryptocurrencies is already enough of a game?

US manufacturer recalls dog food after execution drug found in tins
05:22 PM, 02.19.2018

US manufacturer recalls dog food after execution drug found in tinsA drug used to execute American prisoners and to put animals to sleep has been discovered in canned dog food in the US, triggering an emergency recall. The Food and Drug Administration said it found low levels of pentobarbital in tins of Gravy Train dog food produced by JM Smucker. The drug is most commonly used by vets as a sedative or anaesthetic and to euthanise pets. At high doses in humans it cause respiratory arrest and has been used to carry out executions often as the first step – inducing unconsciousness - in a three-drug protocol. It was one of the drugs used by Marilyn Monroe when she took her own life. The brand affected Credit: JM Smucker The recall followed an investigation by WJLA, a TV station in Washington, which found pentobarbital in almost two thirds of cans it tested. The FDA said: "Pets that eat pet food containing pentobarbital can experience drowsiness, dizziness, excitement, loss of balance, nausea, nystagmus (eyes moving back and forth in a jerky manner) and inability to stand. Consuming high levels of pentobarbital can cause coma and death.” It concluded that the small amounts detected posed little risk to dogs. "However, any detection of pentobarbital in pet food is a violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act—simply put, pentobarbital should not be in pet food," it said. The FDA said the low levels presented little risk Smucker said it had identified the problem at a single supplier, from a single, minor ingredient, used at one manufacturing facility. “We take this very seriously and are extremely disappointed that pentobarbital was introduced to our supply chain. We will continue to work closely with our suppliers and veterinarians to ensure the ingredients used in our products meet or exceed regulatory safety standards and our high-quality standards,” said Barry Dunaway, president of the companies pet foods division. “Above all, we are a company that loves pets and understand the responsibility we have in providing high quality food for the pets our consumers love.”
