Turkish troops have once again been caught on camera committing numerous war crimes, this time targeting journalists in the country that were attempting to flee the Syrian city of Afrin.
Rumbling Mount Sinabung on the Indonesian island of Sumatra shot billowing columns of ash more than 16,400 feet into the atmosphere and hot clouds down its slopes on Monday. There were no fatalities or injuries from the morning eruption, the National Disaster Mitigation Agency said.
The volcano, one of three currently erupting in Indonesia, was dormant for four centuries before exploding in 2010, killing two people. Another eruption in 2014 killed 16 people, while seven died in a 2016 eruption.
Last November, The War Zone posted an exclusive story detailing a bizarre incident involving an unidentified aircraft that transited the skies of the Pacific Northwest in the early evening of October 25th, 2017. What started as a radar target moving at very high speed over Northern California turned into a series of eyewitness accounts made by nearby airline pilots traveling northward over Oregon. Even F-15 fighters were launched to intercept the mysterious intruder that quickly became invisible to radar.
Now, through the Freedom of Information Act, we present what could be one of the most insightful instances of official documentation surrounding such an encounter that had already been confirmed to have occurred by both the FAA and the USAF. These materials include fascinating audio recordings of radio transmissions and phone calls made as the incident was unfolding, as well as pilot interviews, and conversations between FAA officials made in the aftermath of the highly peculiar incident.
For proper context, make sure to first read our original post linked here detailing the event, how our report came to be in the first place, as well as the rare confirmations as to its authenticity from both the FAA and the USAF. Below is also a short explainer video that will give you a basic overview of the incident.
Dr Ian Pearson said human beings are very close to achieving immortality in a number of different ways, but only if you can make it to the year 2050.
Anyone who dies before then could be part of the last generation of humans to die of old age.
Dr Pearson said: "By 2050, it will only really be for the rich and famous.
"Most people on middle-class incomes and reasonable working-class incomes can probably afford this in the 2060s. So anyone 90 or under by 2060.
"If you were born sometime in 1970 onwards, that would make you 48 this year.
Fierce clashes erupted between student protesters and police forces in Bogota on Tuesday, after some 500 students from the Pedagogical University of Bogota held a large rally, reportedly attacking the headquarters of the Centro Democratico (Democratic Centre) party.

A message that reads “kill the NRA” has appeared on a billboard in Louisville in response to last week’s school shooting.
The billboard, which appears on Interstate 65 in Louisville, was an act of vandalism, according to Outfront Media, the business that owns the sign.
The words “Resist 45” also appear on the sign, a reference to the “resistance” movement against the presidency of Donald Trump.
A spokeswoman for Outfront Media confirmed that the sign, which has been in place since Friday, was not part of an ad buy and that it is in the process of being taken down, although there was no sign of that happening on Monday evening.
“Some commuters thought the vandalized message encouraged violence,” reports Wave 3 News.
The NRA posted an image of the banner on its official verified Facebook page.
This is by no means the only violent threat directed towards conservatives in the aftermath of the Florida school shooting.
As we reported on Friday, a far-left Facebook group openly encouraged its members to shoot Republicans as revenge for the Parkland massacre.
“Dear Crazed Shooters, The GOP has frequent baseball practice. You really wanna be remembered, that’s how you do it. Signed, Americans tired of our politicians bathing in the blood of the innocent for a few million dollars from the terrorist organization NRA,” stated one of the posts.
“You remember the shooting at the Republican baseball game?” asked another post. “One of those should happen EVERY WEEK until those NRA-funded sons of bitches do something about this.”
On Monday, CNN went to the building in Russia where the alleged Russian troll factory operated during the 2016 presidential election so they could dig through their trash and try to enter the facility.
CNN sent chief international correspondent Matthew Chance to the Internet Research Agency, the name of the firm Special Counsel Robert Mueller claims is responsible for meddling in the 2016 presidential election, to see if he could uncover any clues from the building.
During a segment with CNN's Jim Sciutto, Chance said, "We came here expecting this office to be empty, but, in fact, all day here, we’ve been here throughout the course of the day, people have been going in and out."
"We went to the trash can to see what we could find because we saw people dumping rubbish there," Chance continued. "New computers, new computers are being delivered here and they're throwing away the rubbish."
Chance tried to speak with a man who appeared to work in the building, asking him if he was a troll before getting smoke blown in his face as they then tried to follow him into the building.
Upon entering the building, CNN was quickly thrown out by men who appeared to be working security and were clearly not happy to see them there.
One of the revelations in Friday’s indictment handed down by Special Counsel Robert Mueller was that alleged Russian attempts to sow disunity in 2016 included the organization of both pro- and anti-Trump rallies in New York City on the Saturday after Election Day.
A check of their November 12 coverage showed both CNN and MSNBC gave enthusiastic coverage to the Russian-organized anti-Trump rally that day, with live reports every hour. Correspondents celebrated the idea that it was “a love rally,” and repeated the marchers’ anti-Trump mantras, such as: “We reject the President-elect.”
While the two liberal anti-Trump networks offered heavy coverage of the anti-Trump rally throughout the day, a check of coverage between noon and 5:00 p.m. Eastern found that the Fox News Channel offered only a short re-cap (66 seconds) at the start of their 4:00 p.m. Eastern hour.
Of course, none of the networks were aware of who was allegedly behind the march, but CNN and MSNBC reveled in the inflammatory messages of the march. At one point, MSNBC anchor Alex Witt credulously responded to the ridiculously alarmist rhetoric: “That woman, when she’s saying she’s concerned that black people will be shot in the street....Is that a legitimate concern for her? Because, that’s scary.”
Correspondent Morgan Radford cheerfully played along: “Alex, it’s not only a legitimate concern for her, it’s a legitimate concern for a lot of people I’ve spoken to....They’re wondering if this [Trump’s election] is almost a license to carry in terms of hate.”
This is from tonight in Tehran as a car hits riot police. Before the car hits them people are throwing rocks at them both from the street and from rooftops above.
A man who had bought a home security camera was shocked when he went out for the night and reviewed the footage the next day.
That's because something terrifying was lurking in his house.
The man had set up the camera in the corner of her living room in Cheshire on Valentine's Day .
But it appears an uninvited guest decided to come out to play.
The footage shows the still room at night with nothing unusual going on.
That is until just seconds into the clip a long pale stick-like feature appears from the bottom of the screen.
A naked woman was among a number of spa guests who needed rescuing from the first floor by firefghters when a blaze broke out.
Without enough time to gab their clothes, several customers were forced to flee the bath house with nothing on.
They had been guided to an open first-floor window when the fire broke out and fled down a ladder.
Meanwhile others managed to escape through the front door, with thick smoke billowing out every open window.
Many naked clients had no time to gather their personal belongings, and many of them were seen stark naked as they climbed out the window, where firefighters had set up ladders to help them to safety.
An incredible ancient ritual site containing human remains from a thousand years ago has been discovered in an underwater cave system.
Divers also found a possible breakthrough link between the Mayan culture and prehistoric society in the Sac Actun cave system on the Yucatan Peninsula in Quintana Roo state, Mexico.
Incredible underwater footage shows these newly uncovered links to the ancient past - including a cracked human skull - in the recently discovered caves.
Fossils of giant sloths, extinct bears and masks of the Mayan god of commerce are some of the objects uncovered there.
Altars, walls and the Mayan burial site with human remains are some of the most important finds.
Of the 198 objects uncovered, 138 are believed to be from the postclassic Mayan period (900-1200 AD), and the 60 remaining objects seem to be from Preceramic era (10,000-4,000 BC).
Proving he still has a winning sense of humour despite being 'killed off' this week, Sylvester Stallone celebrated his 'resurrection' in hilarious fashion.
The Rocky actor fell victim to a cruel Internet hoax that claimed he'd died after battling prostate cancer.
A mysterious account shared pictures of the Rocky star looking unwell and balding - but it's thought this was from a movie role.
As the speculation spread, his brother Frank Stallone stepped in to put the record straight.
A substitute teacher at Western Guilford Middle School in Guilford County was fired after a video surfaced of him body-slamming a student.
The student’s mother shared the video on Facebook, adding the incident happened on Valentine’s Day, and that she wants justice.
Jose Escudero, the student, told Fox8 in Greensboro, High Point and Winston-Salem that the altercation started over a box of chocolates.
French ice dancer Gabriella Papadakis held up as best she could.
If the world saw Papadakis giving her all with partner Guillaume Cizeron at Pyeongchang Winter Games, skating live on NBC Sunday night, it also saw more than she ever wanted to show.
Alas, Papadakis’ costume proved not nearly as strong as she was, coming apart behind her neck just seconds into her routine, compromising the top’s structural integrity.
The wardrobe malfunction would result in brief exposure of her left breast not only on live global TV but reportedly on video screens in the arena. It was, she would later tell reporters, her “worst nightmare happening at the Olympics.“
That Papadakis and Cizeron could get through their short program at all under the circumstances – let alone finish trailing only Canada’s Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir going into the free dance – speaks to her focus, determination and skill.
“Somehow they did get to the end of the music, but the costume, early on, you could tell she kept trying to keep the top of her costume in place the rest of that short program,” NBC announcer Terry Gannon said as the French skaters completed their routine.
“I can’t even describe, not only how distracting that is, but just how disappointing it is that they had to perform that program with that distraction for themselves,” NBC analyst Tanith White, a 2006 Olympic silver medalist, said. “It’s just not the kind of thing you want to have to worry about in competition.
“They are such exceptional skaters. But unfortunately that was distracting throughout the entire program and it hurt them in their technical execution, which is really where they shine. They are such a strong team. I’m just heartbroken that this even had to be part of their Olympic story.”
A pair of crashes took some of the biggest names in NASCAR out of the running at Sunday's Daytona 500.
The biggest pileup came on Lap 129, when 16 cars suffered damage and seven-time Cup series champion Jimmie Johnson was knocked out of the race.
The trouble began when Jamie McMurray tapped Johnson's No. 48 car, moving it from the top lane down the track, where it was hit by Trevor Bayne.
"Really? I mean the whole back straightaway, two of ‘em tried to crash me," Johnson said on his car radio.
In addition to Johnson, Clint Bowyer, Danica Patrick, and Chris Buescher were knocked out of the race. Eventual race winner Kurt Busch and Kevin Harvick were involved in the melee but stayed on the track.
Twenty-five laps earlier, Kyle Busch caused a five-car crash when he blew out his right rear tire entering Turn 3, taking out his Toyota teammates and fan favorite Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the process.

An Ohio sophomore heard the news that a family friend was bullied so bad on Valentine’s Day she came home in tears. Without hesitation, he set out to make her smile.
Aislinn Bowermaster, 12, baked holiday treats to handout to her peers at East Clinton Middle School in Leescreek. It’s a facet of Aislinn’s “old soul” character. Those close to describe a young girl who is kind, thoughtful and gentle.
But by the end of the day, when she hadn’t received anything in return, she was devastated. And on the bus ride home, a girl confronted the visibly distraught Aislinn and issued her cruel reasoning for why no one was her Valentine.
Aislinn’s mom, now crying herself, phoned best friend Abby Howell. “My child has asked me to never send her to school on Valentine’s Day again,” she said.
After the call, Howell discussed the situation with her stepson, Isaiah Greiner. He and Aislinn have been friends for three years. Isaiah said he was willing to do anything to make her smile and the 15-year-old decided he’d visit her at school.
“I want to go there and show her she deserves it,” Isaiah said, who tracked down Aislinn at lunch and delivered her roses, a giant teddy bear, a card and chocolate in front of the whole school.
The note inside the card said: “Happy Valentine’s Day. Always remember how pretty you are.”
The first half of the 2018 NBA All-Star Game was what we’ve come to expect from the All-Star Game, with tons of threes, dunks, highlights and overall sloppy play. However, what preceded tip-off was something we’ve not really ever seen.
Fergie was tapped to perform the national anthem and she certainly put her own spin on the performance with a bizarre rendition that drew audible laughter at times from the crowd and Draymond Green while he was shown on the Jumbotron, but culminated in a rousing round of applause.
The reviews on Twitter were equally divided, and even the TNT set seemed split as to how to feel about it. At halftime, Charles Barkley decided he needed to start a dialogue about Fergie’s anthem, while Shaq defended the singer.
CHARLES: “Can we talk about Fergie’s National Anthem?”
SHAQ: “Oh, stop. Don’t do that. Don’t do that to my Fergie. Fergie, I love you. It was different, it was sexy, leave her alone.”
CHARLES: “Damn right it was sexy, I need a cigarette after that one.”
SHAQ: “It was different. Give it to me different in 2018. Whitney Houston did it different, too.”
ERNIE: “Marvin Gaye did it different, here in L.A..”
CHARLES: “No, he did it right.”
When we think of Fergie we tend to associate her with the catchy, likeable tunes of her Black Eyed Peas day, so her latest performance came as something of a shock.
While appearing at an NBA All-Star game over the weekend, the singer was scheduled to perform the American national anthem in what many believed would be in traditional fashion.
The artist, 42, instead offered audiences at the veune and at home an altogether different version of Star Spangled Banner.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) said Friday that the Obama administration bore some responsibility for the Russian interference campaign in the 2016 election, suggesting its weak response to North Korea's hack of Sony Pictures emboldened the Kremlin.
Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, has been one of the most outspoken members of Congress about Russian meddling efforts and the investigation of possible collusion between Donald Trump's campaign and the Kremlin.
"I do think though that, in fairness, some of the responsibility is also attributed to the Obama administration for not establishing a more forceful deterrent," he said at the Council on Foreign Relations. "I think it goes back to the Korean hack of Sony in which there was a minimal response. I think that others around the world watched that and determined that cyber is a cost-free intervention."
Schiff said cyber attacks have a level of "plausible deniability" but while the U.S. is good at determining who committed an attack, "you don't need to show your hand as long as you can establish a deterrent."
Arguably the worst attempt at a robbery was caught on surveillance cameras in China.
The video released by the Shanghai Police Department shows two unidentified men approaching a storefront window.
The first man takes what appears to be a brick, and throws it the storefront but it bounces back off. The second man hurls another brick, but instead of hitting the window, it hits his accomplice in the head, knocking the man out.
The second man hurries over, and can be seen dragging his partner away from the scene.
The video has been viewed almost 15 million times since on the website Weibo, where it originally was posted.
Fox News contributor Jeanine Pirro said Friday that special counsel Robert Mueller “is the person who should be investigated,” instead of President Trump…
Pirro, one of TV’s most vocal pro-Trump pundits, dismissed the “Russian so-called interference” in an appearance on host Sean Hannity’s program, and she and Hannity discussed accusations of political bias on the special counsel’s team.
“I look at Mueller’s team: Obama donors, Clinton donors, DNC donors. Nobody likes Trump,” Hannity said, adding that he wants to know the reason behind Mueller’s appointment of “Trump haters” to his team investigating the Russia case.
“Because Robert Mueller is not looking for an objective team. Robert Mueller is looking for people with an agenda against Donald Trump. Robert Mueller is the person who should be being investigated, given the fact that he was the head of the FBI when this attempt to find our uranium started in 2009,” she said.
With the Clinton campaign’s newfound interest in Russian espionage, it’s worth noting that it was John Podesta’s brother, Tony Podesta, who runs the firm that pocketed $180,000 from Uranium One, the Russian government’s uranium company to which then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton transferred 20% of U.S. uranium.
Russia-controlled UraniumOne retained the Podesta Group — run by the brother of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chief, John Podesta — in 2012, 2014, and 2015, to lobby Hillary Clinton’s State Department. The Podesta Group paid a total of $180,000 according to public records.
As meticulously detailed in the New York Times bestselling book Clinton Cash, Uranium One is the firm that funneled millions to the Clinton Foundation as the Russian government gained ownership of the company.
According to the New York Times, Russian President Vladimir Putin had a “goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.”

Sitting around the table with your family to celebrate a birthday is usually a very special ocassion.
Perhaps you'll have dinner , maybe a glass of wine and even a few gifts.
But without fail, for every birthday there is always a cake .
Only for this close family, there seems to be no boundaries when it comes to celebrations as they mark the special day with what could be classed as the most inappropriate family birthday cake ever.
In a video taken of the awkward joke the family can be sitting around their kitchen table.
A plane passenger has been filmed drying out a pair of knickers by holding them close to the air vent above her head in the middle of a packed jet.
The woman waved the black and white pants high above the heads of her fellow travellers as she spent 20 minutes drying them out.
She was onboard an Ural Airlines from Antalya, in southern Turkey en route to the Russian capital of Moscow, when she was filmed.
Eyewitnesses said the woman did not seem remotely embarrassed as she moved the knickers around under the vent.
An onlooker with a smartphone filmed the surreal scene as she held up her undergarments above her head and moved them about in the airflow to dry them.
These chilling images show the squalid lair where a depraved paedophile preyed on more than 200 vulnerable victims before sharing photos of their abuse on the dark web.
Footage shot inside Cambridge University graduate Matthew Falder's pokey flat shows clothes, food containers and laundry strewn over the floor - as well as a roll of toilet paper on his bed.
Today he was jailed for 32 years for abusing and blackmailing a string of vulnerable victims, including a girl who he ordered to eat dog food.
The 29-year-old's desk was piled with rubbish and what looks to be a tub of dried up mushrooms.

This is the shocking moment Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz attacks a classmate he accuses of stealing his ex-girlfriend.
Cell phone footage dating back to September 2016 shows Cruz lash out at 17-year-old Enea Sabadiniin in the courtyard of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
The teenage murderer can be seen wearing khakis, a white printed short-sleeved T-shirt and a dark bandana around his neck. At one point Cruz holds Sabadiniin on the ground.
In the months leading up to the shooting, Cruz sent a series of threatening messages to Sabadini on Instagram after he started dating his ex-girlfriend, 'I'm going to f***ing kill you,' Cruz allegedly wrote to Sabadini.
'I am going to shoot you dead.'
Another said: 'I'm going to watch you bleed.'
Sabadini said he started dating Cruz's ex shortly after they broke up in August 2016.
Other messages accused Sabadini of stealing the girlfriend. The ex-girlfriend has said she does not want to be identified.
