Lightbulb News (Interesting/Strange/Odd/Weird) Of The Day- From All Over The World

I had a thread topic... post news stories outside of the typical political beat.


Today's from Japan:

Japanese Ferry Is Said to Collide With Whale, Injuring 80

Quote:
The accident occurred on Saturday off the coast of Niigata Prefecture as the ferry was traveling to Sado Island, according to a statement on the website of the company, Sado Steam Ship.

The company said that six people were seriously injured when the ship ran into a “marine animal.” There were 125 people, including crew members, aboard, according to Kyodo News.

The ship, a jetfoil that skims across the water’s surface at high speed, sustained damage to its hull and “machinery,” the company said. The ferry made it to its destination, Kyodo News reported.

For the sake of science!

Scientists are dropping dead alligators into the darkest depths of the Gulf to see what bites

Quote:
It didn’t take long for one of the creepiest creatures of the deep to sniff out the gators. Giant isopods, each about a foot in length, swarmed in and began nibbling on what, to them, must have been a bountiful and exotic feast.

“We had assumed given the tough hide of the alligator it might take a while for deep-sea animals to access the soft tissue,” McClain said in email during an outing on a LUMCON research vessel. “But the giant isopods seemed to find soft spots in the hide on the abdomen and in the armpits.”

From the top, isopods look like a gargantuan version of the pill-bug, a land-dwelling cousin. Flip it over, and the pale, 14-legged crustacean resembles a ’facehugger’ from the movie Aliens.

I initially thought that this was an Onion story, but looked at the source and got Fox news

Killer French farm chickens gang-up to kill fox that sneaked into henhouse

Quote:
“There, in the corner, we found this dead fox,” Pascal Daniel, the head of farming at the school, told AFP. “There was a herd instinct and they attacked him with their beaks.”

A meteor exploded in the Earth's atmosphere with 10 times the energy of the Hiroshima atomic bomb

"While you were living your life on December 18th, 2018, a giant space rock exploded 16 miles above the Earth's surface, giving off 10 times the energy of the atomic bomb detonated over Hiroshima. No big deal.

The event is properly called a "fireball," NASA's term for "exceptionally bright meteors that are spectacular enough to to be seen over a very wide area."

With an impact energy of 173 kilotons, December's fireball was the second-most powerful to enter Earth's atmosphere in 30 years. You may recall the first -- it was that huge, blinding fireball that rocked parts of Russia in 2013."

Damn. Minute objects traveling at high speeds can create so much energy... mass into energy.

Chicago PD Superintendent Eddie Johnson, Rahm Emanuel call Jussie Smollett charges being dropped 'whitewash of justice'

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel stood shoulder-to-shoulder with his city's police force Tuesday afternoon, denouncing prosecutors for dropping charges against "Empire" star Jussie Smollett and slamming the episode as a "whitewash of justice."



Yes its strange how he got free out of his mess. The case information is sealed from public. Very fishy. In top of it looks like something (influence: Obama Connection) may have happened behind the scene....

Quote:
Records: Former Michelle Obama aide, Smollett relative reached out to Kim Foxx



Just days after Jussie Smollett told Chicago police he had fought off a pair of attackers who targeted him in an apparent hate crime, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx tried to persuade Police Supt. Eddie Johnson to turn the investigation over to the FBI.


Foxx’s call to Johnson came after an influential supporter of the “Empire” actor reached out to Foxx personally: Tina Tchen, a Chicago attorney and former chief of staff for former First Lady Michelle Obama, according to emails and text messages provided by Foxx to the Chicago Sun-Times in response to a public records request.


Tchen passed Foxx’s number to a relative of the actor, and the ensuing conversations with the family member were cited by Foxx last month as the reason she recused herself from Smollett’s prosecution as the actor faces disorderly conduct charges for allegedly making a false police report.


Text messages show Tchen contacted Foxx on Feb. 1, three days after Smollett said he was jumped by two men as he walked home from a sandwich shop near his Streeterville home. Tchen texted Foxx to set up an early morning phone call.
“I wanted to give you a call on behalf of Jussie Smollett and family who I know. They have concerns about the investigation,” Tchen wrote in a text sent before 5 a.m., seeking to set up a call with Foxx before Tchen left on an 8 a.m. flight to New York.


A few hours later, Foxx received a text from a relative of Smollett, who said she’d received the number from Tchen.


....
....


The text messages show Foxx told both Tchen and Smollett’s relative that Foxx had reached out to Johnson personally about handing the investigation off to the FBI.


“Spoke to the superintendent earlier. He is going to make the ask. Trying to figure out logistics. I’ll keep you posted,” Foxx wrote the relative that evening.
“OMG this would be a huge victory,” the relative texted in reply.


In an email message to Tchen sent the same day, Foxx wrote: “Spoke to the Superintendent Johnson. I convinced him to reach out to FBI to ask that they take over the investigation. He is reaching out now and will get to me shortly.”
Tchen did not respond to requests for comment from the Sun-Times.
