Green-haired turtle that breathes through its genitals added to endangered list

It sports a green mohican, fleshy finger-like growths under its chin and can breathe through its genitals.

The Mary river turtle is one of the most striking creatures on the planet, and it is also one of the most endangered.

The 40cm long turtle, which is only found on the Mary river in Queensland, features in a new list of the most vulnerable reptile species compiled by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL).

Despite the turtle’s punk appearance – derived from vertical strands of algae that also grow on its body – its docile nature made it historically popular as a pet.

Gill-like organs within its cloaca – an orifice used by reptiles for excretion and mating – enable it to stay underwater for up to three days, but it was unable to hide from the pet collectors who raided its nests during the 1960s and 1970s.

The turtle is placed at 30th on ZSL’s Evolutionarily Distinct and Globally Endangered (Edge) list for reptiles. First established in 2007, Edge lists have previously been published for amphibians, birds, corals and mammals, helping guide conservation priorities for 100 most at-risk species. Each species is given a score which combines extinction risk with its evolutionary isolation or uniqueness, with the latest list supported by a study in the journal Plos One.

Top of the list is the Madagascar big-headed turtle, which has an Edge score higher than that of any other amphibian, bird or mammal, and is still taken for food and global trade.

Classified Info Would Have ‘Cast Serious Doubt’ On Loretta Lynch Handling Clinton Investigation

No.245328 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
http://dailycaller.com/2018/04/12/comey-lynch-clinton-email/

Former FBI director James Comey wrote in his new book that classified information could have “cast serious doubt” on Loretta Lynch’s ability to investigate Hillary Clinton’s email server in 2016.

ABC News reports, “Comey writes that he felt obligated to take more of a personal role as the public face of the investigation rather than deferring to then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch – in part because of something involving Lynch that he cryptically refers to as a ‘development still unknown to the American public to this day.'”

The government learned of this information in 2016. The book does not reveal anything about the information.

Comey also wrote that “the unverified material would undoubtedly have been used by political opponents to cast serious doubt on the attorney general’s independence in connection with the Clinton investigation.”

underfunded school protests continue in red states, threatening Republican seats

No.245289 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
CHANDLER, Ariz. — An intensifying series of red-state battles over education funding and teacher pay threatens to loosen Republicans’ grip on some of the country’s most conservative states, as educators and parents rebel against a decade of fiscal austerity that has cut deeply into public education.

As Arizona teachers pressed for higher salaries and more school funding, and Oklahoma teachers won some concessions from lawmakers amid a nine-day walkout, some in Kentucky continued their protests in favor of more money for education. Last month, West Virginia’s Republican-controlled government raised pay for teachers after a statewide strike.

The clashes could elevate public education into a major issue in several midterm races this fall. Republicans are defending dozens of governorships and state legislative chambers across the country, including in several Southern and Western states where all-Republican governments have passed sweeping reductions in taxes and spending.

On Wednesday in Chandler, Ariz., a middle class city in the Phoenix suburbs, hundreds of parents and students joined teachers in protesting outside schools. A parent, Christine Clinger Abraham, whose daughter is a senior at Chandler High School, wore a red blouse to show solidarity with the teachers’ #RedforEd movement. “They take so much personal interest in the kids,” Ms. Abraham said, “but they have to have a second job” to make ends meet.

Ms. Abraham typically votes Republican, but said, “I would switch party lines” in order to support candidates who want to increase education funding. “I am very disappointed in the Republican Party we have locally,” she said.

The 'condom snorting challenge' is every parent's worst nightmare

No.242938 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Viral videos posted on social media show teenagers snorting condoms as part of a so-called "condom snorting challenge."

In the videos, teens put an unwrapped condom up one of their nostrils and inhale until the condom comes out of their mouth. Like other viral challenges, the condom snorting challenge has been around for years but recently reemerged on social media.

In San Antonio, Stephen Enriquez, who teaches drug and alcohol prevention to parents, has also started to teach parents about dangerous online trends like the condom snorting challenge, KABB-TV reported.

"Because these days our teens are doing everything for likes, views, and subscribers," Enriquez told the station. "As graphic as it is, we have to show parents because teens are going online looking for challenges and recreating them."

And this isn't the first time that teens have done questionable things in the pursuit of Internet fame. In 2012, more than 50,000 YouTube video clips showed young people swallow a tablespoon of dry cinnamon with no water, gag and spew out a cloud of orange dust as part of the "cinnamon challenge."

Former British Commander in Iraq Gets Abruptly Cut Off by Sky News For Doubting Syrian Chemical Attack.

Despite the fact that the alleged chemical attack in Syria's Douma, blamed on Damascus, still lacks any substantial evidence, Britain made a decision to join US-led military action in Syria.

UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson welcomed on Saturday the UK strikes against Syria conducted jointly with the United States and France, saying that the world stands united against chemical weapons.

Welcome the news of UK military strikes against major chemical weapons facilities in Syria alongside our US and French allies. The world is united in its disgust for any use of chemical weapons, but especially against civilians

Religious leader called Penis Baba 'pulls car 100ft using only his Penis

No.244789 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Huge crowds flocked to watch a religious leader appear to pull a car - with his penis.

The 'monk' - known only as Penis Baba - can be seen fiddling under his robes while he apparently attaches a rope to his private parts.

After the white rope is tied to the car before he staggers backwards, pulling the heavy vehicle around 100ft.

A video shows hundreds of people gathering around to watch him in Harpur village of Munger district of Bihar, India.

One local said: "The villagers said that Baba had gone away to practice penance and knowledge in his childhood and he has returned after years.

'Baba' said: "It is not art. It is the power of God - the power of devotion.

"Any person can go to any extent by doing devotion to God."
