Corpse Caught Moving In Body Farm Study

It seems that not even the sweet release of death can put an end to the body’s movements. And no, we are not talking about zombies. According to new research from Australian scientists, corpses are not that stiff after all and move about for over a year after death due to the process of decomposition. The research was conducted at a body farm in Australia where researchers study how bodies decompose. This, in turn, can improve forensic techniques. The team looked at a time-lapse of a decomposing body taken every 30 minutes over a period of 17 months. The researchers expected to see some movement in the early days after death, but they witnessed movement for more than a year and …

Woman Leaves Acupuncturist With Collapsed Lungs Because Needles Were Inserted Too Deeply

A 33-year-old woman visited an acupuncturist to treat an arm and wrist injury – and left with two collapsed lungs. An investigation into the incident led by New Zealand Health and Disability Commissioner Anthony Hill found that the accident was the fault of the acupuncturist, who had stuck the needles in too deeply. To treat an injury causing shoulder pain and shortness of breath, the acupuncturist (known only from the case report as Ms B) inserted two needles in an acupressure point called Jian Jing or Gallbladder 21 (GB21) – a risky area that contributes roughly 30 percent of lung collapse cases relating to acupuncture, according to one review. The woman reported pain during the insertion but the needles were left in place for 30 minutes. …

New York attorney general exposes $1 billion in wire transfers by Sackler family

New York (CNN)Authorities have identified about $1 billion in wire transfers between the owners of pharmaceutical giant Purdue Pharma, the entities they control and different financial institutions, New York Attorney General Letitia James said Friday. Millions of dollars in wire transfers involving Mortimer D.A. Sackler, a former Purdue board member, were mentioned throughout the new document. In a statement to CNN, Sackler said “there is nothing newsworthy about these decade-old transfers, which were perfectly legal and appropriate in every respect. “This is a cynical attempt by a hostile AG’s office to generate defamatory headlines to try to torpedo a mutually beneficial settlement that is supported by so many other states and would result in billions of dollars going to communities …

Police interview London Fire Brigade over Grenfell

“We must all understand what happened and why to prevent communities and emergency services from ever being placed in such impossible conditions ever again,” she added. Grenfell United, the group representing survivors and bereaved families, said it was “only right” that the fire brigade was facing questions. It said: “We have been very patient but in the months ahead we need to see organisations and individuals being brought to account, lessons being learnt and changes being made.” The Met has previously said that the fire brigade’s use of the so-called stay put policy, advising residents to remain in their flats, was a line of inquiry. The police interview focused on sections 2 and 3 of the Health and Safety at …

NRA sues San Francisco for declaring group a ‘domestic terrorist organization’

Lawsuit accuses city officials of violating the gun lobbys free speech rights for political reasons The National Rifle Association sued San Francisco on Monday over the citys recent declaration that the gun-rights lobby is a domestic terrorist organization. The lawsuit, filed in US district court for the northern district of California, accuses city officials of violating the gun lobbys free speech rights for political reasons and says the city is seeking to blacklist anyone associated with the NRA.

Last week, the San Francisco board of supervisors passed a resolution calling the NRA a domestic …

Elizabeth Warren’s ‘Big Structural Change’ Threatens Joe Biden’s Delaware

Joe Biden and Democratic front-runner and one of his fiercest progressive challengers. Biden and Warren’s core disagreement centers on how hard the next president should push to fundamentally restructure the American economy. Warren has called for “big structural change”; Biden promises To really understand this schism, you must consider the 36 years that then-Sen. Biden spent defending the uniquely pro-corporate laws of his home state, Delaware — laws that protect America’s biggest companies from taxes, lawsuits and accountability; fuel economic inequality; and prioritize the interests of shareholders over those of consumers, debtors and workers. Like Sen. Bernie Sanders’ attacks on the “rigged economy,” Warren’s calls for change represent a direct challenge to Delaware’s special status. By taking on three key …

Napping Once Or Twice A Week Might Be Good For Your Heart Health But Scientists Are Not Sure Why

In what might just be the best news of the week (admittedly, it’s only Tuesday), napping has been linked to a reduced risk of heart attack and stroke by scientists at the University Hospital of Lausanne in Switzerland. According to a paper published in the journal Heart, study participants who indulged in a siesta once or twice a week were 48 percent less likely to have a heart attack, stroke or experience heart failure over a five-year-period compared to those that did not nap at all. But we shouldn’t jump to too many conclusions just yet – as the researchers themselves have been quick to point out, the results reveal an interesting correlation but do not show a cause and effect. There may …

Scientists Taught Rats To Play Hide-And-Seek And It Literally Made Them Jump For Joy

A team of researchers and a team of rats recently got together for some laboratory-based hijinks. They spent weeks playing human-vs-rodent hide-and-seek, which was so much fun the impish little rats literally giggled and jumped for joy. The diminutive players consisted of six adolescent male rats who were trained to play hide-and-seek against neuroscientist Annika Stefanie Reinhold. The researchers filled a room with hiding places made from different boxes and allowed the rats to become accustomed to the space. The critters learned that if they began the game inside a closed box, they were the seeker, while being in an open box meant they needed to hide. The findings are reported in Science. Over time, the rats became stealthier, working …

‘I don’t see family now’: How to argue over Brexit

On the other side of the debate, one 59-year-old Leave voter from north London says most of his discussions with “remainers” are “reasonable”, although there are “complete nutters”, often on social media, who “can’t cope with the fact people voted to leave”. “I have got the ammunition I need, and they know I know what I’m talking about,” he says. But he says his girlfriend – who is from Czech Republic and would have voted to remain – was “a bit cross” about his vote. “She said I voted for her to go back,” he says. “But we are still boyfriend and girlfriend now. We don’t discuss it.” For more than three years, Brexit has been sparking disagreements among families …

Astronomers Find The Ringing Of A Newly Born Black Hole

Space-time is constantly being strummed by all the events that are happening in the universe. The vibrations, which we call gravitational waves, resonate across the cosmos. Since the first direct detection of gravitational waves in 2015 – and the following discoveries of several collisions between black holes, neutron stars, and each other since then – we have been able to listen to the “sounds” of these events. Now, for the first time, researchers have detected two tones from a newly formed black hole. It had previously been assumed that just one tone could be detected, and any others would be too faint for our current technology to pick up. The gravitational event GW150914 that kicked it all off in 2015 saw a …
