After being forced out of their homes for two days, residents of Andover, North Andover, and Lawrence, Massachusetts, were told they could return to their homes Sunday morning, but were warned not to turn their gas back on at this time. Governor Charlie Baker said homes throughout the areas impacted by the blasts were cleared of gas by 6:30 a.m. Sunday. The evacuation was prompted by three spontaneous explosions that caused fire or other damage to about 80 homes.
NBC News reports that the source of the explosions was initially unknown, but has now been identified. The pipelines that set off the explosions belong to Columbia Gas of Massachusetts. The National Transportation Safety Board is conducting an investigation into the series of events that led to the dangerous situation including their record-keeping practices and its daily operations. An examination of recent consumer complaints will also be conducted.
Five squirrel siblings sure know how to stick together, quite literally. The situation that they were found in recently could very well have cost them their lives. The incident that happened in Wisconsin thankfully turned out to have a happy ending for the small critters.
According to TMJ 4, the five grey squirrels were found by someone just passing by who saw the terrible predicament that they were in. What they witnessed were the siblings with their tails all entangled together with no way of getting loose by themselves. They were helpless in their nest and could have either died or lost their tails if the Good Samaritan hadn’t intervened. They quickly notified the Wisconsin Humane Society in Milwaukee for their assistance.
Owning a pet has become more common in the modern age. More and more people are now choosing to become pet parents. Today, owning a pet means an addition to the family. Pets are given the same consideration as any human member of the family — sometimes even more. So, it isn’t a surprise the pet parents are taking their fur babies overseas with them.
According to Global Pets, 60 percent of consumers in the world own pets. As a result, the pet industry is booming. There are now numerous businesses targeting the needs of pet parents from walking or grooming services to those that create tech with dog or cat owners in mind. The one sector that seems to be lagging in the pet industry, however, is travel.
Many pet parents are not taking their fur babies overseas with them on vacation. Before they even board the airplane or boat, though, pet owners should keep the tips below in mind.
With a sexual assault allegation against Donald Trump’s United States Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh surfacing last week, and the woman who made the charge coming forward in a Washington Post interview on Sunday, Trump reportedly now plans to respond to the accusations by launching verbal attacks on the accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, a 51-year-old research psychologist at Palo Alto University in the California Bay Area.
According to a report by the online political news magazine Politico, three sources “close to the White House” now expect Trump to “go after” Ford, as he has done with women who have accused him and other men of sexual assault in the past, rather than reconsider his nomination of Kavanaugh.
Days of Our Lives spoilers for upcoming fall storylines claim that there will be more DiMera drama ahead.
A recent report by She Knows Soaps reports that Stefan DiMera (Tyler Christopher) will be front and center when he decides to lock his sister, Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk), in the secret room underneath the DiMera mansion.
Days of Our Lives fans know that Stefan has used the secret room in the past. He previously locked Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) and Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) in the room with his own mother, Viviane Alamain (Louise Sorel). The three women spent some awkward time together in the room, and now it is Kristen’s turn.
Kristen locked Marlena in the room many years ago when she was in love with Marlena’s on again, off again husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn). However, Susan Banks eventually locked Kristen in the room as well and took over her identity.
With his 2016 campaign manager Paul Manafort agreeing on Friday to cooperate with the Russia investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, as Inquistir reported, Donald Trump is “terrified” of what Manafort could reveal about him, according to the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee — who also warned other members of Trump’s inner circle that they should come clean to Mueller about what they know regarding Trump’s activities, or face the consequences.
“Anyone who gets indicted by Bob Mueller goes down,” said California House Rep. Adam Schiff, in an appearance on NBC’s Meet The Press reported by Politico. “The longer you wait to come clean, the worse deal you’re going to get, the more time you’re going to face.”
As compiled by Vox.com, of the eight Americans that were members of the 2016 Trump campaign, or somehow associated with the campaign, all eight have ultimately taken deals with Mueller and entered guilty pleas.
A Minnesota couple is under arrest for allegedly dropping their 5-year-old boy off in a forest as punishment for wetting his pants.
The incident took place in St. Peter, where police say 42-year-old Lynda Michel and 32-year-old Gregory Wilson took the boy to a forest along a highway in the town. As TwinCities.com reported, a passing motorist spotted the young boy crying near the forest and came to his aide.
The boy told the motorist that he had been left there by his parents because he was “naughty.”
The parents told police that they turned around quickly after leaving the boy in the forest but could not find him. Another passenger in the car with the couple told police he tried to talk the couple out of leaving the boy.
Police said they believe the boy had been abused over a long period, as they found multiple bruises on his back, buttocks, and hips.
Online retail giant Amazon said Monday it was investigating claims that its employees had been bribed to hand over confidential information and remove negative product reviews. Employees at Amazon are selling data on reviewers, search engine optimization and sales metrics to independent vendors, according to Reuters.
The report stated confidential information is usually sold through third-party brokers, with the practice being particularly common in China. In one case, Amazon employees in the Chinese city of Shenzhen were allegedly found peddling data like reviewer email addresses and sales metrics for as much as $2,000. Data brokers have also offered Amazon vendors the ability to delete unfavorable reviews and restore banned accounts, the report said.
Amazon has responded by stating it’s investigating a handful of incidents, including some in the United States.
“We hold our employees to a high ethical standard and anyone in violation of our code faces discipline, including termination and potential legal and criminal penalties,” an Amazon spokesperson told CNN.
Christine Blasey Ford has said through her attorney that she is willing to testify against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in connection to a decades-old sexual assault claimed that happened when they were both in high school, USA Today reported Monday.
“She is willing to do whatever it takes to get her story forth,” Debra Katz, Ford’s attorney said in an interview with NBC’s Today show Monday. “(Ford) believes that these allegations obviously bear on his character and fitness.”
On the morning show, Katz pushed back against claims that Ford, a registered Democrat, has been motivated politically by her charges. Katz charged that her client has received “very vicious sexually violent emails from total strangers” since making her claims public.
Hurricane Florence is continuing to make itself felt throughout the country with rain from the storm spreading from the Appalachians to the Northeast and the Ohio Valley, according to The Weather Channel.
The National Weather Service has issued flood watches or warnings from South Carolina all the way to the entirety of Massachusetts. All of those alerts have come as a result of rain bands from Florence, which continues to be a large storm despite recently being downgraded to a depression.
Early reports show that Florence has been a record-breaking storm, with rainfall in Cheraw, South Carolina, reported at 22.58 inches. That would be a record for the state, far higher than the 17.45 inches recorded by Tropical Storm Beryl in 1994.
Niagara College is offering what is thought to be a program that is the first of its kind, which will teach students how to effectively grow and cultivate marijuana. It is known that the program is the first and only one in Canada right now, and it is believed to be the only one in the world offering courses in cannabis growth for actual college credit and a certificate. The class is being offered for the first time this semester, so there hasn’t been any time to gather much feedback on how it is being received on campus, but so far many students seem to think it is pretty cool, according to CBC News.
Princess Diana’s charming letter she sent to her bodyguard just weeks before her death will go up for auction at Gilding Auction House later this month, revealing yet another heartwarming moment for the late royal, according to The Sun.
Princess Diana wrote the letter to bodyguard Graham Cook after a vacation in St. Tropez in 1997, apologizing for what she believed made his “job enormously difficult,” the tabloid wrote. The letter was dated July 23, 1997, The Sun noted, five weeks before she died in a horrific car crash in Paris.
“Dear Graham, William, Harry and I very much wanted to write and thank you for taking such good care of us during our stay in Saint Tropez,” the letter stated. “We realise that our presence, along with that of the media, made our job enormously difficult, and for that we apologise.”
The reason for the sudden closure two weeks ago of New Mexico’s Sunspot Solar Observatory has been revealed – sort of – and, perhaps disappointingly, it wasn’t because of aliens. At least, that’s what they want you to believe.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, on September 6 the FBI rolled into Sunspot, New Mexico – by some accounts in a Blackhawk helicopter – and ordered everyone out of the solar observatory there. What’s more, a nearby post office and a dozen or so area homes were evacuated as well.
And then there was naught but silence. The FBI would neither confirm nor deny its involvement. The scientific consortium that managed the telescope wouldn’t say anything beyond that it was a “security issue.” An Albuquerque Journal reporter tried to ask the sheriff, but the phone mysteriously cut out while the sheriff was mid-sentence (not that he knew anything anyway).
The View hosts clashed over the recent allegations regarding sexual misconduct surrounding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
The panel of hosts addressed the news surrounding Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who came forward accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault,
Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.
View panelist and lawyer Sunny Hostin said Ford should be heard because her allegations are “very credible” and “extremely important” according to Mediaite.
Co-host Joy Behar concurred, remarked that Ford was given a lie detector test, and stated that Republicans are “pushing Kavanaugh’s nomination through” because they’re worried about the midterm elections happening in November of this year.
But the newest member of The View cast. Abby Huntsman, said she didn’t like the politics surrounding the timing of the letter’s appearance.
She noted, as per Mediaite, “It seems as if the Democrats put this in a drawer and said, ‘This is big and this is going to benefit us is if we use the time perfectly.'”
Mark Uptain, a hunting guide from Wyoming, was mauled and killed by two grizzly bears who attacked him and client Corey Chubon on Friday reported Fox News.
The pair was hunting elk in the Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, and Uptain was reported missing when he did not return from the park when expected. That led to a search of the area the two were hunting in with Grand Teton rangers finding Uptain’s body on Saturday afternoon.
Chubon survived the attack and was taken to a hospital with leg, chest, and arm injuries and was treated, being released, healthy, on Friday.
“I’m just blessed and extremely grateful to have made it out of this situation alive,” said Chubon to Orlando’s WKMG.
Since Uptain’s death, a GoFundMe was launched to help raise funds for his family, with Uptain leaving behind a wife and five children.
Beverage giant Coca-Cola is considering development of a cannabis-infused drink, according to reports Monday.
Coke has already begun talks with Canadian marijuana producer Aurora Cannabis on the possibility of producing the beverage, according to Bloomberg.
The drink would be aimed at alleviating pain and promoting good health instead of intoxicating users, though company spokesperson Kent Landers hinted a final product could still be a long way off.
“The space is evolving quickly. No decisions have been made at this time,” he told Bloomberg.
“We are closely watching the growth of non-psychoactive CBD as an ingredient in functional wellness beverages around the world.”
Landers declined to comment directly on the Aurora talks, though an unnamed source close to the company told Bloomberg the discussions between the two companies were “serious.”
“They’re pretty advanced down the path” of producing a cannabis-infused beverage, the source said.
In a statement, Aurora likewise declined to comment on the talks with Coke, but confirmed it was pursuing a cannabis beverage.
A seven-alarm fire tore through the Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Brooklyn on Monday, causing damage to up to 100 cars, New York’s ABC7 reports.
The fire ran through the second and third floors of the parking garage, which shopping center officials report was the location that a local car dealership would store its stock. A large amount of said inventory has been lost due to the fires.
Almost 300 firefighters attended the scene to contain the blaze — which has now been contained — but the Fire Department of New York has advised that people stay away from the area as smoke is still dissipating from the structure. The mall has closed due to the smoke that made its way into the building proper from the parking garage.
21 people are being treated for smoke inhalation at nearby medical facilities, with 18 firefighters and three others requiring treatment, said the FDNY in a statement.
Kaiden Lee-Welch lost his grip on his mother’s hand during Hurricane Florence, and on Monday his mother’s worst nightmare was confirmed as his body was found, NBC News reports.
The police search and rescue teams spent the evening searching for the 1-year-old after he was swept away, finding his body on Monday morning after several hours looking for the toddler.
His mother, Dazia Lee, suspected that this would be the end result, and spoke of how grateful she was to those who searched for him. She was also thankful that his body had been recovered.
“The only thing I care about is that they found him, that’s the only thing I care about. So now we’re waiting to just see him.”
A British diver who helped save a group of Thai teenagers trapped in a cave announced Monday he is suing Elon Musk. The diver, Vernon Unsworth, has alleged the billionaire entrepreneur falsely accused him of pedophilia. Unsworth filed the suit in a Los Angeles court, and is demanding $75,000 in compensation.
“Mr. Unsworth brings this action to hold Musk legally accountable for his wrongdoing and to vindicate his reputation,” the filing read, according to NBC News.
In July, Musk labeled Unsworth a “pedo” on Twitter, after the diver criticized the entrepreneur’s proposal to use a small submarine to rescue a group of Thai soccer players trapped in a cave. Musk argued the submarine could be used to navigate the confines of the cave system, and ferry the trapped teenagers to safety.
The BBC reports that while draining groundwater from the ancient temple of Kom Ombo near Aswan in southern Egypt, archaeologists found a well-preserved statue of a sphinx — the mythical being from Egyptian legend bearing the head of a man and the body of a lion. In ancient Egypt, the sphinx represented royal power. Sometimes the head of a hawk or snake replaced the human head, depending on the purpose of the sphinx and what it was intended to symbolize. According to the head of Aswan’s antiquities department, Abdul Moneim Saeed, the sphinx — and the area in which it was found — will be studied carefully to determine its original purpose.
