A 58-year-old Starbucks customer is being lauded as a hero after he thwarted a robbery attempt by an armed man sporting a “Transformers” mask.
Security camera footage from the July 20 incident sees robbery suspect Ryan Michael Florez approach the counter of the Fresno coffee shop, a replica gun in hand.
The Starbucks staffer initially hesitates to pull cash from the register, prompting Florez to pull out a knife. Seconds later, customer Cregg Jerri enters the screen and repeatedly bashes the would-be robber over the head with a chair.
The fight moves around the cafe, with both men wrestling for the knife and stabbing each other until Florez flees to his vehicle. He was apprehended about 20 minutes later, police told the Fresno Bee.

Here are some verses from the Quran that prove women have no rights in Islam.
2:228 "(Women) have rights similar to those (of men) over them in kindness, and men are a degree above them."
2:282 "And call two witness from among your men, two witnesses. And if two men be not at hand, then a man and two women."
4:3 "Marry of the women, who seem good to you, two or three or four."
4:11 "To the male the equivalent of the portion of two females, and if there be women more than two, then theirs is two-thirds of the inheritance, and if there be one (only) then the half."
4:15 "As for those of your women who are guilty of lewdness, call to witness four of you against them. And if they testify (to the truth of the allegation) then confine them to the houses until death take them."
40:20 "And if ye wish to exchange one wife for another...."
4:34 "Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them."
4:176 "Unto the male is the equivalent of the share of two females."
24:31 "And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and be modest, and to display of their adornment only that which is apparent, and to draw their veils over their bosoms, and not to reveal their adornment save to their own husbands. ... And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment."
33:30 "O ye wives of the Prophet! Whosoever of you committeth manifest lewdness, the punishment for her will be doubled, and that is easy for Allah."
33:32-33 "O ye wives of the Prophet! Ye are not like any other women. ... Stay in your houses."
33:53 "When ye ask of them (the wives of the Prophet) anything, ask it of them from behind a curtain. That is purer for your hearts and for their hearts. And it is not for you to cause annoyance to the messenger of Allah, nor that ye should ever marry his wives after him. Lo! that in Allah's sight would be an enormity."
33:59 "O Prophet! Tell thy wives and thy daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks close round them (when they go abroad)."
65:1 "O Prophet! When ye (men) put away women...."
66:5 "If he [Muhammad] divorce you, will give him in your stead wives better than you, submissive (to Allah), believing, pious, penitent, devout, inclined to fasting, widows and maids."
Tucker vs. Maxine Waters -- Tucker's Thoughts: Maxine Waters thinks this show is racist for asking how she was able to afford her $4.3 million mansion. Some critics think some of the congresswoman's finances look a little unseemly, if not criminal and corrupt. We reserve judgment.
Over the past few days, the whole political elite of the country behind closed doors have been discussed a bill that should start a new page in the history of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict in the Donbas.
In the near future, parts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions that are not controlled by Kyiv may be declared occupied territories. But those who search for the names of the occupying country are just wasting their time. Ukrainian authorities have moved to the stage of "hybrid" responses to "hybrid" challenges, which should be understood also as occupation without an invader.
In addition, the new concept of response to aggression involves the possibility of not weakening but increasing the involvement of the Armed Forces in the conflict in the East. In fact, the president wants to give the right to declare a martial law without a declaration of martial law.
A large-scale piece of crop art intended to send a powerful message on the migrant crisis has been ploughed over on a field near Verona, Italy.
Impressive aerial footage of the land art which depicts a vessel with the word ‘Africa’ next to a vertical line reading 'Stop, EU' was captured Saturday in Castagnaro.
The artwork also includes the phrase 'Ius Soli No' beneath the vessel – a reference to the proposed nationality law which would grant Italian citizenship to second generation immigrants born in the country.
Currently, the children of immigrants must wait until they are 18 to apply for Italian citizenship. This new law would grant citizenship to foreign babies born on Italian soil and to children who have spent at least five years in the Italian school system.
Created by land-artist Dario Gambarin, the work was made by free-rotating with a tractor, plow, and harrow.
Gambarin told L’Arena that his intention with the art piece is to reiterate his view that a common and shared solution to the migrant crisis must be found by Europe as a whole.
"The problem of migrants in the sub-Saharan Africa touches on the whole of Europe and it is not only Italy that is seeking structured solutions,” he said.
“I think it is right that these people are helped and accepted, but it is necessary to punish human traffickers.”

So I was showing my family around, they were here visiting from Venezuela, when we saw a guy driving like crazy, most probably under the influence in the River Oaks ares in Houston Texas, we saw him coming with his car crashed and driving like crazy, so we turned around and followed him, he actually stopped at a restaurant and we called the police, me and another car that were following him decided to leave because he got off his car and I guess the manager of a restaurant came outside and we explained everything, so he stayed with the guy to wait for the police and me and the other car left, but as I was about to get to the corner, I looked back and saw the guy getting in his car and leaving, so I turned around and we had to follow him again while we were on the phone with 911, he missed many cars and entered the parking lot of Central Market, parking lot was full of people, many of who were children so we had to act quick to try to stop the guy before something bad happened, the guy saw me coming and he backed up into another vehicle, I had to go around to avoid getting ran over, tried opening his door but it was locked, luckily he opened the window and I went in, put the car in park and opened the door, I saw him trying to reach to put the car into gear so I had to pull him out of the car, ones out I waited for the cops to come to hand the guy to them. Many people have criticized how I acted, telling me that I shouldn't have got involve, that the guy could have ran me over and kill me, but at that point I only thought of doing something before someone got hurt, I thought of two really good friends of mine that are now dead, one because he drove while really drunk and he crashed and died and the other one a few years later, died because he got hit by a drunk driver, he was driving his bike and just like that he was gone.

CLAIMS that five 1,700 year-old mummies look more reptilian than human have been causing a stir with conspiracy theorists. New images of the “alien mummies” were unveiled during a press conference called “The mummies of Nazca” in Peru by Mexican ufologist and journalist Jamie Maussan on Tuesday. This included X-rays of the mummified remains so Maussan could banish claims that they were fake or made of plaster, Ruptly has reported. Mr Maussan alleges that of the five bodies discovered, three of them had “characteristics that are closer to reptiles than humans”. He added: “Nobody has proved it is a fraud. “We are going to present preliminary evidence that will determine in the vision of the media, in the collective vision of the popular conscious, the validity that it has.” Maussan has claimed carbon dating samples of the body dates between 245 to 410 AD, though the result has not been verified as true. Footage of the so-called mummified alien was released in June though some were not convinced. Supposedly filmed in the ancient city of Nazca, Peru, users pointed out the “corpse” looks like it is a half-finished cardboard creation.
A Yazidi schoolgirl has revealed her horrifying story of how she was kidnapped and used as a sex slave by ISIS fighters when she was just 14. Ekhlas was captured along with thousands of Yazidi women when ISIS jihadis swept through northern Iraq in 2014.

During an appearance on Revival Ministries International, Rodney Howard-Browne said he spent three hours “from 9:30 in the evening until 12:30am with one of the senior ranking members of Congress”.
The pastor said he related the same story on the CBN network but “they cut it out” and that he had decided “to go public with this because we have to.”
“He said there is a plot on Capitol Hill to take the president out, I said you mean by impeachment or by indictment – he said no, to take him out, he will be removed suddenly from office,” said Howard-Browne, before adding, “you can read between the lines”.
The Congressman, who the pastor revealed had been in office since 1996, went on to tell Howard-Browne “there’s nothing we can do to stop it.”
Pastor Howard-Browne said the deep state had “started a war” against Trump because he has been more amenable to the evangelical community than any previous president stretching as far back as Reagan, and were trying to “set the president up in every way”.

European Union leaders and Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros are seeking a "new, mixed, Muslimized Europe," Hungary's anti-migration prime minister said yesterday.
Prime Minister Viktor Orban said during a visit to Romania that Hungary's border fences, supported by other Central European countries, will block the EU-Soros effort to increase Muslim migration into Europe.
While Hungary opposed taking in migrants "who could change the country's cultural identity," Orban said under his leadership, Hungary would remain a place where "Western European Christians will always be able to find security."
Orban, who will seek a fourth term in April 2018, said Hungary's opposition parties were no match for his government.
"In the upcoming campaign, first of all we have to confront external powers," Orban said at a cultural festival in Baile Tusnad, Romania. "We have to stand our ground against the Soros mafia network and the Brussels bureaucrats. And, during the next nine months, we will have to fight against the media they operate."
Soros has become a key target of Orban and his government.
Recent legislation in Hungary seeks to close or expel the Budapest-based Central European University, founded by Soros in 1991. There are also new rules about non-governmental organizations funded at least partly from abroad — which critics say stigmatize the NGOs, many of which are backed by Soros' Open Society Foundations.
Orban reiterated his charge that Soros-funded NGOs want to weaken Hungary's security with their advocacy for asylum-seekers and said Hungary had managed to stop the "migrant invasion" with razor-wire fences on its borders with Serbia and Croatia.
Man captures incredible video of waterspout over Delaware Bay
Watch this insane animal rights activists lose her mind when she spots a Mexican man attempting to drag the stingray that he just caught into the cooler that his friend has waiting for him.
A video uploaded by a Chinese citizen in Tibet shows a massive amount of hardware being moved in position on the border with India.
For the past several weeks the Chinese military has been attempting to incite a response from India by provoking them with numerous live fire drills in a region that numerous countries all claim as their own.
China warned on Monday that it will step up its troop deployment in a border dispute with India, vowing to defend its sovereignty at "whatever cost".
The standoff started more than a month ago after Chinese troops started building a road on a remote plateau, which is disputed by China and Bhutan.
Indian troops moved in to the flashpoint zone to halt the work, with China accusing them of violating its territorial sovereignty and calling for their immediate withdrawal.
"The crossing of the mutually recognised national borders on the part of India... is a serious violation of China's territory and runs against the international law," Chinese defence ministry spokesman Wu Qian told a press conference.
"The determination and the willingness and the resolve of China to defend its sovereignty is indomitable, and it will safeguard its sovereignty and security interests at whatever cost," he added.
Chinese "border troops have taken emergency response measures in the area and will further step up deployment and trainings in response to the situation," he said.
The spokesman did not give any details about the deployment.
India and China have both said they have foreign support for their positions on the conflict.
Bhutan has said construction of the road is "a direct violation" of agreements with China. Bhutan and China do not have diplomatic relations.
India, which fought a war with China in 1962 over a separate part of the disputed Himalayan border, supports Bhutan's claim.
But India should "not have any illusions" that its position will prevail, Wu said.
"The history of the PLA (People's Liberation Army) over the past 90 years has proven that our resolve to safeguard (China's) sovereignty and territory... are indomitable," he said.
"It is difficult to shake the PLA, even more difficult than to shake a mountain."
India and China have vied for influence in South Asia, with Beijing ploughing large sums into infrastructure projects in Nepal, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Bhutan has remained closely allied to India.
China once again demands India withdraw its troops from Chinese territory in the Doklam region. A defense ministry spokesman also says China's determination to defend its territory is "unshakable."
Invoking an unusual defense, the I-Team has learned that a west suburban woman and five associates accused of aiding ISIS say they were engaged in "legitimate warfare."
Mediha Medy Salkicevic, a mother of four from Schiller Park, was arrested in February 2015 on charges of conspiring to provide material support and resources to terrorists and providing material support to terrorists, including the Islamic State and al-Qaida in Iraq.
Investigators say Salkicevic, a Bosnian Muslim refugee, wanted to "bury unbelievers alive" and bring death to infidels.
When she was arrested the I-Team reported that Salkicevic, 37, was working at an O'Hare airport cargo company. She is still being held without bond.
On Friday attorneys for Salkicevic and the others filed a motion to dismiss two charges: conspiracy and providing material support to terrorists. The defendants are claiming that they were engaged in a legitimate war and providing aid to forces opposing Syrian strongman Bashar al Assad-just as the U.S. has done.
Their argument is that "under United States law, acts of legitimate warfare during a civil war are not murder and are entitled to combatant immunity." They say that Americans are "protected from prosecution as acts of legitimate warfare under the doctrine of combatant immunity."
OH,THAT WAS BAD

This is the tragic moment a yoga instructor was killed by a tree - just months after she petitioned for it to be removed.
Kanchan Nath was walking back after a yoga class in Mumbai, India when the unfortunate event happened.
She was held down by the weight of the 25ft tree where she collapsed immediately.
The married 58-year-old was immobilised by the coconut tree which saw onlookers and passers-by trying to help her before being rushed to Sushrut Hospital.
The former TV presenter died of head injuries after being hurried to the Intensive Care Unit.
In the video, she can be seen strolling past some shops in the clip before the fatal event happened.
Her heartbroken husband Rajat Nath blamed the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), the civic body that governs Mumbai, for the accident
'This incident happened because the BMC did not allow the society to cut the tree, despite being informed that it could fall any time.', he said.
Local residents, including the couple signed a petition for the tree to felled months before the devastating incident.
Ward representative corporator Asha Marathe, said BMC officials had found the tree in good condition and had refused permission to cut it.
Asha said: "A team from BMC refused permission to cut the tree, as they had found it in good condition.

A recent rear-end collision between an unlicensed motor tricycle and a speeding coach left one dead and one injured in Chuzhou City, east China's Anhui Province. The driver of the tricycle made a sudden left turn without warning and a coach that was following behind closely crashed at high speed into its rear. The huge impact of the collision threw the tricycle and its driver and the only passenger into the air, and falling on the ground several meters away. The driver was badly hurt when his head hit the ground. The drive of the coach got out of his vehicle and immediately reported the accident to the local traffic police. When the police arrived at the scene, they found through on-the-scene investigation that tricycle driver, 64, drove an unlicensed vehicle without a driving license, failed to make adequate observation when he tried to turn left, while the driver of the coach followed too closely and failed to slow down in time. Both are held equally responsible for the accident. Unfortunately, the tricycle driver is confirmed dead by the medical staff who came to their rescue. The only passenger who turned out to be his son suffered rib fracture and soft tissue injuries. No passenger in the coach was injured.
If you're anxious (hello), pageants like Miss Universe can seem a little terrifying. Get up in front of everyone and tell the world why you're great in all aspects of the word? Sure, fine, no big deal, the thought just makes us want to briefly breathe into a paper bag. So we've got nothing but respect for people who do go for it. They're a confidence master class, especially when it comes to contestants like Miss Universe Malaysia's Sabahan Evita Delmundo, who was born with moles all over her body—and hasn't let it hold her back in the slightest.
The 20-year-old, who goes by Evita, just auditioned for the pageant, and the story of how she got there is inspiring (to put it most mildly). First spotted by Elle Malaysia, Evita says that she was bullied growing up, with other kids calling her names like Monster and Chipsmore. As anyone would be, she says she "was really timid and shied away, as I didn't know how to deal with it all."
Thankfully, she says the bullying lessened later on, but she says it took going to church camp at 16 to help her "really learn how to love myself and communicate with others. That was probably the first time I truly started accepting who I was [and] how I look." And Evita says she did think about removing her moles, but after doctors told her removing them could affect her health, she says she "just had to accept that this is the body I've been given. But now I'm grateful I didn't change anything."
From her story, it seems like the world's better off for it. With 34,000 Instagram followers, Evita says her fans have told her that "they look up to me and see me as an inspiration. Knowing that I have such a positive effect on others really keeps me going." Which brought her to Miss Universe Malaysia: Evita says she wants to use the platform to showcase her uniqueness and newfound confidence and, hopefully, inspire others.
