Ukraines national bank has banned financial institutions from handling new Russian banknotes that feature landmarks from annexed Crimea.

The 200-rouble note should not be exchanged or handled, said the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU). The note is illustrated with two scenes from the Crimean port of Sevastopol, a naval memorial and the nearby ruins of the ancient city of Chersonesus.

New Hampshire investigators are looking into a disturbing incident with echoes from America’s racist past — an attack on an 8-year-old biracial boy that his family is calling an attempted lynching.

The boy survived the harrowing ordeal and was later treated for rope burns to his neck, and investigators are seeking to determine if he was the victim of a hate crime.

If the attack is deemed a hate crime or a civil rights violation, Attorney General Gordon MacDonald said in a statement that his office was "prepared to take any and all appropriate action."

The boy’s mother, Cassandra Merlin, said her son and his 11-year-old sister were out playing when a group of teenagers began taunting them with racial epithets, saying things like “white pride,” before stringing her son up with a rope from a tire swing and pushing him off a picnic table.

“They walked away and left him there hanging,” Merlin told the online publication The Root.

The boy was able to escape after swinging back and forth at least three times, the boy's grandmother, Lorrie Slattery, said in an interview with a local paper, The Valley News. “I think he had a guardian angel,” she said.

The incident occurred on Aug. 28 in Claremont, a small factory city of some 13,000 people that is overwhelmingly white.

Merlin said she went public after her son was treated at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, and Claremont Police Chief Mark Chase later confirmed that the incident was being investigated.

"I know what is being reported has caused not just my community to ask questions but the entire nation wants to know more,” Chase said in a statement that appeared on the department’s Facebook page.

Gov. Chris Sununu said he had asked for regular updates on the investigation. “Hatred and bigotry will not be tolerated in New Hampshire,” he said.

Wild turkey breaks into dentist's office in Rhode Island

No.189107 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
On Monday, Pezza Orthodontics posted to their Facebook page documenting a wild turkey that had broken into their reception room and perched itself on one of the chairs.

However, the Cranston, Rhode Island dentist's office made the best out of the bizarre and surprising situation.

They'll need to have one of their windows replaced as it got smashed by the bird during the break-in.

In the post, they say its just one of those strange things that can happen, and that no, they do not take turkeys as patients.

By the end of the day, the glass had been cleaned up and the room had been cleaned and disinfected. The office says it'll take 1 to 2 weeks to replace the window and apologize for any inconveniences to their patients.

Burglars target Las Vegas shooter's Reno home

RENO, Nev. — The Las Vegas shooter’s home in Northern Nevada was broken into over the weekend, police confirmed Tuesday.
Reno's Somersett neighborhood, part of a Del Webb retirement community, has been in the spotlight since Stephen Paddock opened fire Oct. 1 from the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay resort onto the crowd of concertgoers below, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds before killing himself. Paddock, 64, purchased the small tan and brown home in June 2013 and lived there with his girlfriend, Marilou Danley.
The break-in occurred through the front door, said Officer Tim Broadway of the Reno Police Department. Detectives do not yet know the number of suspects involved.
They also were not aware of anything taken or any damage, he said. The FBI, which was notified immediately, and Reno police are working to make sure no further incidents occur.

Pence draws embarrassingly tiny crowd at a rally in the reddest part of Virginia

No.188593 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Mike Pence traveled to the reddest district in Virginia Saturday to headline a rally for GOP gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie, where was he was greeted by a half-empty room.

Rally organizers had said they expected a turnout of about 1,200 people at the event in Washington County, VA, which Politico referred to as “one of the few politically safe regions of the state to bring a Trump administration official.”

But reality did not meet expectations.

In an embarrassing turn of events, only about 400 people showed up for the rally, which was held at the Washington County fairgrounds.

Photos from the event show Pence entering the stage to face the sparse audience.

Even high-energy music like Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” didn’t excite the low-energy crowd that turned out to see Pence.

Last November, 75 percent of Washington County residents voted for the Republican presidential ticket.

But less than one year later, voters in the deep-red district weren’t so excited to see Pence.

According to the Washington Post, local Republican activists spent the day working the phones in a futile effort to drum up more attendees. After the event, GOP officials blamed the small turnout on the “beautiful” weather and other activities that were going on that day, including “football, hunting and [a] wedding.”

Perhaps the only thing more embarrassing than the sparse crowd at Saturday’s rally is the fact that Trump wasn’t even invited because he’s considered too politically toxic.

And the paltry attendance adds further proof to the cratering support for this administration, even in the reddest corners of the country.

Larry Flynt offers $10M in quest to impeach Trump

No.187796 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread

>Porn king Larry Flynt is offering a $10 million reward for dirt on President Trump if the info gets him booted from the Oval Office, a new report said Friday.

>The creator of Hustler Magazine, whose porn empire also produces XXX-rated videos, offered the cash “for information leading to the impeachment and removal from office of Donald J. Trump,” according to a Flynt statement tweeted by Fox Business News reporter Liz Claman that was later retweeted by the 74-year-old Flynt.

>The pornographer-turned-First Amendment activist called Trump’s presidency “illegitimate,” and said that “after nine tumultuous months in office, Trump has proven that he’s dangerously unfit to exercise the extreme power accrued by our new ‘unitary executive,’” according to the statement.

>Flynt points to the president’s firing of James Comey, lukewarm rebuke of violent neo-Nazis who marched in Charlottesville, Va., “hundreds of bald-faced lies” and “complete ignorance of world affairs” as the purported reasons for his latest effort to meddle in politics.

Sounds a lot more enticing now, don't it?

China has developed a laser gun, which can hit targets at 200 meters within one second.

No.187436 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
The weapon has a handset for aiming, a back pack containing the power supply, a remote control and laser emitter, the developer Hongfeng, a company affiliated with China Aerospace Science & Industry Corporation (CASIC), told Chinese English-language newspaper The Global Times on Thursday.

The laser gun shoots faster and more accurately compared to conventional weapons and can hit targets within 200 meters in "just one second," said Yan Azhe, one of the gun engineers. Besides, it emits no sound or light when fired.
Among its other advantages is its inexpensive maintenance and easy use – the gun does not recoil. It might be specifically handy for the country's security forces.

The laser gun has already been exhibited at recent counter-terrorism drills in Central China's Hunan province. The exercises saw a number of other innovations, such as "a glove made of a special material to prevent the user from being cut or stabbed by metallic objects, a multi-functional shield to confuse terrorists with laser and noise and an electronic shock emitter."
