Armed people tried to seize the agricultural harvest in the village of district of Odessa.
As reported, the conflict broke out because of the harvest of sunflower, grown on a 500-hectare field. Villagers brought in the harvester to the field, but the activists tried to size the harvester. Scuffle broke up with explosives and firearms.
The athletic youth began throwing firecrackers at people, and threatened to shoot. When the police squad arrived, they stood between the conflicting parties.
Then the hijackers left the scene in 13 cars. According to the newspaper,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Some East Texans say a storm Sunday night killed nineteen cows. Witnesses say lightning hit a tree just north of Hallsville during the storm, killing the cows that were standing underneath it for shelter.
It was a tragic ending for the cows trying to get relief from a storm. Victor Benson saw it happen.
“All of a sudden, a lightning bolt came down and the cows just fell,” he explained.
“In the blink of an eye a lightning bolt, and there was lightning everywhere, but just one (bolt) and it was over,” he added.

The FDA is full of shit, and this isn't the first questionable regulation they've pulled out of their asses. The government really ought to defund the FDA and stop sanctioning it as a federal authority. Let's replace it with an agency that bases regulations on modern science for a change.

This is my country. Soon we'll be requiring women to sign up for the draft. Even most of the Republicans voted in favor of this. This is disgraceful. I'm embarrassed to be an American.

>Astronomers engaged in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) are training their instruments on a star around 94 light years from Earth after a very strong signal was detected by a Russian telescope. An international team of researchers is now examining the radio signal and its star, HD 164595 -- described in a paper by Italian astronomer Claudio Maccone and others as a "strong candidate for SETI" -- in the hopes of determining its origin.

It's probably nothing. SETI's not even going to look at it.
from SETI@home: >Because the receivers used were making broad band measurements, there's really nothing about this "signal" that would distinguish it from a natural radio transient (stellar flare, active galactic nucleus, microlensing of a background source, etc.) There's also nothing that could distinguish it from a satellite passing through the telescope field of view. All in all, it's relatively uninteresting from a SETI standpoint.

This has happened before. It always ends up being caused by solar flares a passing satellite or some other manmade signal. Also considering that the blip was over a year ago with no other signal coming from the area of space since it's nothing.
Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense announced on Sunday Muravsky’s dismissal in a Sunday statement that said the “public reaction” to a series of Muravsky’s photos had led to Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak’s decision to dismiss him.
The controversy surrounding Muravsky’s photos–and if they were staged or not–is particularly sensitive as the Ukrainian government has sought to distance itself from any potential comparisons to its Russian counterpart, which has been accused of spreading propaganda in an effort to win over public perception in the now two-year-old...

A dog swam more than 6 miles and walked a dozen more to find its family after falling overboard into Lake Michigan during the weekend.
Edward Casas was boating on the lake Sunday with his wife, Kristin, and the family dog, a 10-month old Belgian Malinois (MAL'-ehn-wah) named Rylee. Casas tells ABC News Rylee went overboard while he was in the engine room trying to figure out a mechanical problem with the boat and his wife was steering.
Casas says he sent out a mayday call on the radio and was connected to a volunteer group that searches for lost dogs.

Stop remaking classic 80s movies, stop remaking classic 80s movies with "progressive themes", especially after you promised a remake with the original cast. These women don't deserve this shit, but they shouldn't have been apart of it in the first place. It's just sad that they have to suffer for some corporate hacks who sat around a table and said

A dwarf billy goat gave new meaning to the word "scapegoat" when he busted out a surprisingly slippery Clydesdale that went on the lam in California for several days.
The nearly 1-ton horse named Budweiser, who goes by "Buddy," was safely wrangled back into his pen Sunday in the Santa Cruz Mountains on California's Central Coast.
The goat named Lancelot knows how to butt open the stable gate, and did just that Wednesday, letting his best friend escape, owner Tamara Schmitz told the Santa Cruz Sentinel newspaper
Another Clydesdale, Harry, also fled and was nabbed in a meadow the next day. But Buddy is more wary and wily, Schmitz said.
"Buddy's very elusive," she said. "He's not like other horses. He's not attracted by meadows and other horses. He can stay hidden."
That made him very hard to find. He eluded volunteers from around the Santa Cruz area for five days, with evidence like tracks and loud snorts suggesting he was as far as 3 miles away.
The owners even trotted out Lancelot and Harry to try to lure back Buddy, but he didn't fall for it. They just hoped the horse would stay away from Highway 17, a busy and dangerous road running through the area.
A pair of searchers on horseback finally found Buddy hiding amid manzanita shrubs Sunday.
"When we got him back in the pen, he was particularly frisky and playful and happy," Schmitz said. "I think he was glad to be back."

I think we should do what Germany does and just ban all mention of Nazis.
Not because of the whole Holocaust thing, or because somebody might find it offensive, but because if you did we might find something more sensible than "TRUMP IS A NAZI EVIL EVIL EXTREMIST HOLY SHIT HE'S LITERALLY HITLER YOU GUYS HOLY FUCKING COCK WAFFLES HE'S GONNA TURN US INTO NAZI GERMANY BITCH FUCKING DAMN"
