A porcupine meal makes for a very bad python day

Image
Park rangers found a 30-pound porcupine inside the African Rock Python The snake's death may be down to a combination of what it ate and stress from human interaction (CNN)A huge snake's big meal in South Africa has turned out to be its last.
After the death of a 12-foot-long African Rock Python, park rangers opened its stomach. Inside they found a 30-pound porcupine.
Its needle-sharp quills seem to have punctured the snake's digestive tract and may have contributed to its death. The engorged snake was first spotted by a mountain biker in the Lake Eland Game Reserve, about 100 miles south of Durban, two weeks ago.
Visitors showed up at the park to observe the snake and to speculate what it had eaten. On its Facebook page, the Game Reserve had its own guesses: a small warthog or impala calf.
When the snake died last week, curious park rangers performed a necropsy, or autopsy, on the animal.
Though the exact cause of death is unknown, spectators and the porcupine may be to …

Image
President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the immediate dissolution of the board of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC. The decision was conveyed in a letter, dated June 26, 2015, signed by the Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Danladi Kifasi.

It’s board is statutorily headed by the minister of petroleum resources.

The Chinese firm that can build a skyscraper in a matter of weeks

Image
CNN)At the beginning of February, construction workers gathered at a sparse building site in the city of Changsha, south-central China. A little under three weeks later, a 57-story skyscraper stood on the very same the spot. The "Mini Sky City" tower is the work of Broad Sustainable Building, a Chinese firm that specializes in prefabricated construction. By preparing more than 2,700 modules in a factory for four months before site work began, BSB says it was able to assemble the structure at the rate of three stories per day -- like a giant vertical jigsaw pieced together from a minutely detailed set of instructions. A timelapse video of construction went viral on Chinese websites before finding its way onto many western news sites and broadcast media at the beginning of May.

The two banks, Zenith and First Bank attacked in Ikorodu on Wednesday
A young lady said to be about 20 years old led the Rambo- style robbery of two banks in Ikorodu town, West of Lagos State, Nigeria yesterday.
About 16 bandits were said to have been involved in the attacks at about 9 a.m that affected Zenith and First Bank branches at Ebute-Ipakodo area of the industrial town.
At least N100million was carted away by the robbers, with Zenith alone losing no less than N80 million.

The dare-devilry of the attacks on the two banks had similarity with another robbery at Lekki Phase One in Lagos on 12 March. The robbers who assaulted First City Monument Bank, escaped through the lagoon.

A mother and her infant son who disappeared in a plane crash in the dense jungle of western Colombia have been found alive and well five days later in what authorities have described as a "miracle". Nelly Murillo, 18, and her son Yudier Moreno, not yet one year old, were found on Wednesday close to the site where the Cessna 303 crashed on Saturday in thick vegetation near Quibdo in the province of Choco.
"It's a miracle. It is a very wild area and it was a catastrophic accident," Colonel Hector Carrascal, the commander of the Colombian air force in Antioquia, told AFP news agency. "His mother's spirit must have given him strength to survive." Murillo and her baby were taken by helicopter to a nearby hospital with minor injuries, said Carrascal, adding that he was stunned they were alive. "The lady has wounds and minor burns a…

Syria: ISIS destroys ancient Muslim shrines in Palmyra

Image
(CNN)ISIS fighters have destroyed two ancient Muslim shrines in the ancient oasis city of Palmyra, the Syrian government confirmed Wednesday, in the latest act of cultural vandalism by the Sunni extremists.
ISIS seized control of Palmyra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site dating back 2,000 years, last month, prompting fears for the site's survival.
An email sent on behalf of Syria's antiquities chief, Maamoun Abdulkarim, head of the Directorate-General for Antiquities and Museums (DGAM), said the body had heard four days ago from people in Palmyra of the shrines' destruction. "ISIS has blown up two ancient Muslim shrines in Palmyra, and has published photos of this awful crime against the Syrian cultural heritage on Facebook," the statement said.
One of the tombs destroyed is that of Mohammed bin Ali, a descendent of Ali bin Abi Taleb, the Prophet Mohammed's cousin, the DGAM said. It's located in a hilly area 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) north of Palmyra. "I…

Confusion Over Reported Death Of Jonathan's Son

Image
‎In the past few days, the photo of this young man, Ibime Belema-Jonathan, has been viral on the social medial ‎with him claiming to be President Goodluck Jonathan's illegitimate son. According to the reports, the 24-year-old guy believes he is one of the president's sons born outside wedlock and the photo that has been passed around speaks of a striking resemblance with the Nigerian leader and with the explanation that follows, one may not need to look too far to see that there may be some truth in it. Though the President's spokesperson, Dr Rueben Abati has come out to state that the allegation is false, many think there could be a truth in the claim of the young man. This is how it a Twitter user, @Abiyamo, put it: "According to Belema-Jonathan, his mother ‎was a receptionist in a Port Harcourt hotel (which shall remain undisclosed) when she met Goodluck nearly 25 years ago. Their relationship was made private because of the risks it posed to Goodluck's then fl…

Sweden's mummified bishop: Buried in 1680 with hidden baby

Image
(CNN)Swedish researchers studying the mummified remains of a 17th century bishop have made an unusual discovery -- a fetus hidden at the feet of the prominent clergyman. A CT scan of Bishop Peder Winstrup's remains revealed the four or five-month-old fetus, researchers from Lund University said. "You can only speculate as to whether it was one of Winstrup's next of kin, or whether someone else took the opportunity while preparing the coffin. But we hope to be able to clarify any kinship through a DNA test," said Per Karsten, director of the university's Historical Museum. Bishop Winstrup was one of the founders of the university and was buried in Lund Cathedral a year after his death in 1679 at the age of 74. The CT scan, carried out in December 2014, also showed that Winstrup had not been embalmed in a traditional manner but "simply dried out naturally" with his internal organs intact," the university said in a statement.
"The good condition …

Image
Los Angeles (CNN) ‎Academy Award-winning composer James Horner, known for his impressive body of work spanning multiple movie genres, is feared dead after a small plane belonging to him crashed in central California on Monday, killing the pilot. It is not known whether the 61-year-old Horner, best known for scoring the movie "Titanic," was the person flying the plane. But the Hollywood Reporter reported his death, attributing the confirmation to Sylvia Patrycja, his assistant. "A great tragedy has struck my family today, and I will not be around for a while. I would like some privacy and time to heal," Patrycja posted on her Facebook page. "We have lost an amazing person with a huge heart, and unbelievable talent. He died doing what he loved. Thank you for all your support and love and see you down the road. Love Sylvia."
Horner's lawyer couldn't confirm his death, but said he hadn't heard from the composer since the crash. "He is an exper…
