  • Guan Eng: Deputy minister inciting racial tension with proposal to shut down Chinese papers

    DAP’s Lim Guan Eng today accused an Umno deputy minister of inciting racial tension when he reportedly said he would order the closure of at least two Chinese newspapers if he were in the Home Ministry. The DAP secretary-general also suggested double standards in the deputy minister’s remarks, pointing out that no one else in the administration have ever suggested to shut down Umno-linked publications that publish racially insensitive articles. If he wants to close down Chinese papers for strong racial reporting, perhaps he should do the same with Umno papers as well,” the Penang chief minister said.

  • Missing plane draws eyes to land of molten lava and killer sharks

    By Joe Brock SAINT-DENIS, Reunion (Reuters) - As experts on the Indian Ocean island Reunion studied plane debris for clues in the search for missing flight MH370, scientist Nicolas Villeneuve was making his own discovery: the island's volcano was about to erupt. Reunion, a part of France that lies in the Indian Ocean around 370 miles east of Madagascar, gained newfound notoriety last week when a beach cleaner stumbled across a barnacled piece of an airplane wing known as a flaperon. The wreckage was flown on Friday to mainland France where experts hope forensic analysis will uncover if it was part of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, which vanished without trace in March 2014 along with 239 passengers and crew.

The accidental finding of this snake shows how easily even huge pythons can remain hidden in Florida's swampy south, experts say. The creature weighed a whopping 133 lbs. (60 kilograms), and at 18-feet, 3-inches (5.6 meters), was almost as long as the largest python ever captured in the state of Florida, which was 18-feet, 8-inches long (5.7 meters).
