Another devastating loss happened as the highly anticipated birth of a baby giraffe at the Columbus Zoo ended with the animal’s death. The calf was said to have suffered from serious congenital defects and would not have survived after birth. According to a report by People, the team at the zoo did everything they could to save the baby, even performing an emergency C-section on the Masai giraffe mom.
Labor began in the middle of the afternoon around 3 p.m. on Tuesday, December 4. The excitement turned to concern when they realized that something was wrong. The baby giraffe was coming out with its back hooves first, which is quite rare and most do not survive when that happens. In a normal delivery, the front hooves come out first.
Since the death of former President George H.W. Bush last week, eulogies have been pouring in from across the globe. From old-fashioned letters to social media updates, political pundits and world leaders have been paying tribute to the late president. For CNN’s Chris Cuomo, however, it was about more than honoring George H.W. Bush — it was about taking a swipe at the man currently residing in the White House.
As reported by The Huffington Post, the journalist spoke out about the late president on Monday night during his show, Cuomo Prime Time. And while Cuomo was careful not to use Trump’s name at all during the speech, it was clear exactly who he was referring to — and why.
Long before George H.W. Bush entered a career in the oil business and even longer before he became a politician, he was a teenage naval pilot fighting in the Pacific against the Japanese during World War II. Shortly after graduating from high school in the spring of 1942, Bush enlisted in the Navy, leaving a life of privilege and his newly minted fiancee Barbara behind as he headed to basic training.
Chris Jericho has taken the world by storm even though he’s almost 50-years-old and has been in wrestling for close to three decades. While he hasn’t been seen in WWE since the Greatest Royal Rumble back in April, Jericho has been touring with Fozzy and working with New Japan Pro Wrestling. Now, he’s had a meeting with officials from Impact Wrestling and has revealed some information about his future plans.
For years, there have been rumors that Jericho could end up in TNA which is now called Impact Wrestling. It makes even more sense now since their based out of Canada and of course, Y2J has long been billed being from Canada.
People across the country are paying tribute to former President George H.W. Bush this week as he is laid to rest. Since news of his death emerged, many have been reflecting on his years of service, his dedication to his family, and other memorable aspects of the former United States leader’s life. The ongoing connection he had to his deceased daughter Robin has prompted some very touching stories in the wake of his passing.
As the Inquisitr previously noted, George HW Bush and his wife Barbara had a daughter named Robin who died just prior to her fourth birthday after a battle with leukemia. Robin, whose full name was Pauline Robinson Bush, remained ever present in both George and Barbara’s minds even into their later years.
PETA is always looking to protect animals and keep the human race from abusing them or treating them with lack of respect. The group known as the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals have picketed numerous places around the world in order to get fair treatment for all creatures. Now, they have asked the world to stop using “anti-animal language,” but it has only brought about ridicule and internet trolls.
On Tuesday, PETA sent out a tweet asking people to stop using anti-animal language because “words matter.” They brought up the fact that as time moves on, social justice evolves and the language ends up evolving with it, but people need to learn how to accept that.
In what PETA called “specieism,” they hopped on Twitter to post a chart on their official account which details some of the most commonly used “anti-animal” phrases.
Former President George H.W. Bush had a lasting impression on millions of lives, and after his death on November 30, a number of people have paid their respects with words of praise and appreciation for the late president. One man that has offered his condolences is Chinese President Xi Jinping, who leads a country that the South China Morning Post reported “deeply respected” the former president — and one which considers him “an old friend.”
During a meeting with President Donald Trump at last week’s G20 Summit in Argentina, CNN noted that President Xi Jinping expressed that he was “greatly saddened” by the late president’s passing, and praised his role in improving the relationship between China and the United States.
The South China Morning Post also reported other international-relations experts speaking highly of Bush, including Pang Zhongying, who remembered the late president for his “lasting imprint on US-China ties with his tremendous job in forging closer relations since the early 1970s.”
Before George H.W. Bush found himself seated in the Oval Office, he was appointed by former President Gerald Ford to be director of the then scandal-ridden CIA.
As reported by the Daily Beast, it wasn’t exactly Bush’s first choice, given that he had been on the shortlist to be Ford’s vice-president. The climate at the agency at the time didn’t appeal to Bush either, and he felt that Ford was trying to kill his political career with the unexpected appointment.
At the time, the CIA was caught up in a major scandal after an expose was posted in the New York Times by Seymour Hersch, in which it was shared that the agency had been spying on anti-war groups within its own borders. That expose was written just 13 months before Bush took the reigns. The internal surveillance hit the agency hard when it became public knowledge, and their popularity was in the gutter.
President Donald Trump on Wednesday lavished praise on China’s President Xi Jinping for agreeing to tackle the fentanyl drug epidemic, saying that use of the death penalty to deter dealers and distributors of the drug from selling it was the proper choice to make that will benefit both nations.
In two tweets addressing the issue, Trump said he was thrilled with the move.
“One of the very exciting things to come out of my meeting with President Xi of China is his promise to me to criminalize the sale of deadly Fentanyl coming into the United States,” Trump wrote in his first tweet. “It will now be considered a ‘controlled substance,'” he added.
Under Chinese law, distribution of “controlled substances” in that nation’s jurisdiction carries with it the maximum penalty of death, according to reporting from CNN.
Dr. Matthew Zahn, an Orange County health official, has testified in front of a California appeals board that a Disneyland cooling tower was to blame for the Legionnaires’ outbreak that left one dead and 21 sick last year. These cooling towers are air conditioning units that spread a fine mist over park guests that keep them cool while they wait in queues or in high traffic areas of the resort. Zahn said one of the towers was likely loaded with the bacteria that causes the virus.
“Most likely those cases were related to a common exposure. Cooling tower #4 was the most likely source of exposure,” Zahn said, the LA Times reported.
Not only do people love their dogs but apparently they love naming them, too. Inspired by whatever is around them, dog owners are trendy when naming their furry loved ones. The Dog People, powered by Rover.com, published its annual list of most popular dog names and revealed that pop culture made a huge impact on the dog-naming decision.
Rover.com is the world’s largest network of dog walkers and pet sitters. The site proclaims itself “obsessed with dog names.” Using its database of more than a million dog names, Rover.com processed the data and compiled statistics to show the trends of the year. The result uncovered some surprising choices.
Not surprisingly, however, more than 94 percent of pet parents consider their dog a family member. Likewise, the numbers indicated more than 36 percent of dog names are human, with many dog names inspired by celebrity baby names.
As the nation gathered together to say goodbye to former President George H.W. Bush, it looks like some old friendships may be reigniting. Ivanka Trump and Chelsea Clinton were seen together during the funeral, and it looks like these former pals have once again found some common ground.
Although it was a somber affair, the two women chatted politely beforehand, according to the Daily Mail. During the ceremony, the two sat side by side. They were in very good company, too, as they were joined by Barack and Michelle Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Jimmy Carter and Rosalyn Carter as well as Joe and Jill Biden. Donald and Melania Trump were in attendance as well. All these political powerhouses had put aside their differences to bid farewell to George H.W. Bush.
The recorded phone conversations of James Alex Fields Jr., the man who is accused of killing protester Heather Heyer during the Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally in 2017 by crashing into her (and several others) with his car, were made public in court on Tuesday, revealing strong feelings of hostility for Heyer and others demonstrating against the alt-right demonstration.
The recorded conversations of Fields were made between him and his mother while he was incarcerated at a jail facility following his arrest, a report from ABC News detailed.
Fields told his mother that he believed Heyer was “one of those anti-white supremacists,” and that she was a “communist” who came to protest against him and others at the alt-right rally. When his mother reminded him that Heyer’s mother had just lost a daughter due to the attack, Fields seemed very little to care at all about that aspect of the situation.
“It doesn’t f******* matter,” he said.
Two Marine pilots who drew the shape of a phallus and testicles over the sky of Southern California have been disciplined and allowed back in their planes after the October incident.
The Daily Beast reports that there is a “happy ending” for the two pilots who flew their T-34C in a pattern that resembled male genitalia, as the Marine Corps Times shared that the two have been reprimanded, but have once again been cleared to fly. The details of the punishment have not been released (as they are part of the military record), and will not as it is being called an “administrative matter.”
“In October, the pilots flew a flight pattern in their T-34C that resembled a penis. The image was then picked up by radar and shared by the Twitter account Aircraft Spots.”
Major Josef Patterson, a spokesman with 3rd MAW, said that an investigation was conducted.
Satellite images obtained by CNN show that North Korea has greatly expanded one of their long-range missile bases.
The images are of the Yeongjeo-dong missile base in the mountains, according to CNN. A nearby site and this site have both been active recently, as seen in images that also show them going through continuous upgrades. It’s a visual reminder that Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un is making good on his promise to mass-produce nuclear weapons.
The Yeongjeo-dong base is known to U.S. intelligence, but there appears to be a new facility about seven miles away that has been undergoing recent construction. The new site has been “significantly expanded” in the last year, according to the Middlebury Institute. This is an independent research group that identified the activity. From images, this unknown site appears to be another missile base.
The site is “extremely large,” and still under construction as of August 2018. Construction continued even after Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un met in June.
Russia investigation Special Counsel Robert Mueller set off a wave of speculation with his court filing Tuesday detailing how former Donald Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn had helped with the Russia probe by cooperating extensively with Muller and his team. But Mueller left large portions of the document blacked out, as the Inquisitr reported, leaving experts and journalists to wonder what, exactly, Flynn told Mueller and who in Trump’s inner circle he implicated.
But according to an investigative journalist for Bloomberg News, Tim O’Brien, who authored a 2005 biography of Trump, there is one person in particular other than Trump himself who should “worry” about what Flynn told Mueller, and that is perhaps the closest person to Trump in his administration. The person he is referring to is 37-year-old Jared Kushner, who is not only Trump’s senior White House adviser but as the husband of Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump, Trump’s own son-in-law.
With the release of the Michael Flynn sentencing recommendations, many experts are anticipating that there will be additional indictments in Robert Mueller’s investigation and Judge Andrew Napolitano, a judicial analyst for Fox News, says he expects Donald Trump Jr. to be among the people indicted.
The Washington Times reports that Napolitano went on SiriusXM’s The Dan Abrams Show to share his thoughts on others who may be named in the Mueller investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 United States Presidential Election. Judge Napolitano said that he expects President Donald Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., to be on the list of those indicted, along with Jerome Corsi.
Napolitano said he can’t be sure, but he has heard that the younger Donald Trump is expecting to be named.
“I don’t know who, but I do know that Donald Jr. has told friends he expects to be indicted.”
Abrams continued, saying “Do you expect he’d be indicted?”
A 9-year-old boy has died in Russia after getting trapped inside a washing machine.
Per a report from the Daily Mail, an examination of the body revealed some marks and wounds on the elbows that suggested that the boy made a desperate attempt to escape from the drum of the machine.
According to police reports, the child — whose name has not been disclosed — was reportedly alone at home after he returned from school in the Yelizovo, Kamchatka region of the country. The boy’s mother, who worked at a kindergarten, returned home from work and said that her son was missing.
The Russian Investigative Committee said that as she started looking for her boy, she found him inside the washing machine The case is under investigation and detectives are figuring out if the boy climbed into the machine himself or was forced by an intruder.
Sometimes out of the mouths of babes comes great wisdom, and that is what happened when Jenna Bush Hager’s 5-year-old daughter, Mila, whose given name is Margaret Laura, heard of the passing of former president George H.W. Bush. Of course, for Mila, the great man was simply “Gampy.”
In an interview with Today, Hager and her twin sister Barbara Pierce Bush discussed the passing of her grandfather. During the insightful piece, Hager shared some sweet words that her little girl shared. Hager said that she asked her husband why her grandfather had died at the holiday season, and her daughter, whom the mother didn’t even realize had heard, gave a touching reason her great-grandfather had passed so near Christmas.
“Well, of course, it’s happening right before Christmas, Gampy had to get to Ganny so they could decorate their Christmas tree,” said the 5-year-old Mila.
Thomas Lee Williams didn’t make it very long on the outside, police say.
The 36-year-old man had just served time at the Hempfield state prison near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, for a drug conviction when he earned his release. It did not last very long, TriLive.com reported.
Police say Williams attacked a 65-year-old woman in the prison parking lot, stealing her sport utility vehicle, and making off with her 1-year-old grandson in the back seat. Williams only made it about 15 minutes before he crashed into a tree and tried to steal another car before ultimately fleeing the vehicle into a wooded area. As Cleveland 19 reported, police officers with a canine team were able to flush the suspect out of his hiding spot, and he was arrested again.
Williams had been convicted of selling drugs in 2016 but was paroled after several months. He was sent back to the state prison in March 2017 for failing to pay overdue costs and fees, the report noted.
