SEVEN-MILE long 'super mega-pod' of 100,000 dolphins spotted off the coast of San Diego

A group of over 100,000 dolphins spotted off the coast of San Diego caused a spectacle for nature watchers as they traveled together in an enormous pack.

'They were coming from all directions, you could see them from as far as the eye can see,' Joe Dutra said after seeing the spectacle first hand.

Mr Dutra, who captains Hornblower Cruises, was out on his daily tour with a boat full of nature watchers when he spotted the massive group of dolphins.

'I’ve seen a lot of stuff out here… but this is the biggest I’ve ever seen, ever,' he told the local NBC affiliate.

Dolphins typically travel in groups of anywhere between 15 and 200 which are called pods.

Jupiter's Europa moon is 'more likely to support life than the deserts of Mars', claim NASA scientists

NASA scientists believe that one of Jupiter's moons is the most likely place in the universe beyond the Earth that could harbour life.

Europa, the sixth closest moon to the planet, is far more likely to be habitable than desert-covered Mars which has been the focus of recent US exploration, they say.

It's ocean, thin shelf of ice and the presence of oxidants on Europa make it far more likely to be home to a life form than the red planet.

Attackers collecting body parts of albinos for witchcraft hacked off the hand of a seven-year-old boy, officials said today.

The boy was walking home with his friends in Tanzania when he was seized by the men.

It is the latest in a series of bloody assaults on albino people.

Mafia bosses who can't wait to flood Britain with beggars: While politicians dither over new wave of immigration from Eastern Europe, ruthless gangmasters are rubbing their hands with glee

On Saturday, in the first part of this major series on the expected imminent influx of unskilled workers from Romania and Bulgaria, we revealed how countless would-be immigrants are planning to move to Britain — attracted by generous welfare payments. Here, in the second part, we report from Bulgaria, the EU’s poorest nation and a hotbed of organised crime . . .

For thousands of Bulgarians, the road to the United Kingdom began on the third floor of an anonymous grey building a stone’s throw from the national stadium in central Sofia.

Here, past a graffiti-filled entrance hall and up several flights of stairs, is the office of Daniel Kalinov, a genial businessman with cropped hair, a chunky watch and a desk covered by stern-looking letters from Her Majesty’s Home Office.

Daniel, who is 30, is the executive director of the Annonce agency, a company that each year helps hundreds of citizens from the EU’s poorest nation to find new jobs — and begin new lives — in Britain.

Nigerian criminal deported eight years ago returned on marriage visa to help run £2.7MILLION lotto scam

A Nigerian who returned to Britain after being deported has been jailed for his role in a £2.7million lottery scam.

Osas Odia, 33, was booted out of the UK in 2005 after immigration officials discovered he was using a forged stamp in his passport to work.

However, the management graduate was allowed to return on a marriage visa after marrying a British nurse.

WHO urges vigilance over SARS-like virus

The World Health Organisation on Saturday urged countries to be vigilant over the spread of a potentially fatal SARS-like virus after a new case in Britain brought the global number to 12.

"Based on the current situation and available information, WHO encourages all Member States to continue their surveillance for severe acute respiratory infections (SARI) and to carefully review any unusual patterns," the United Nations health agency said in a statement.

On Friday, British health authorities said that a third member of a family had been diagnosed with so-called novel coronavirus, but was not in danger.

Meteorite fragments found in Russia's Urals region

Fragments from a meteorite have been found in Russia's Urals region where it struck on Friday, injuring some 1,200 people, Russian scientists say.

The fragments were detected around a frozen lake near Chebarkul, a town in the Chelyabinsk region, where the meteorite is believed to have landed.

Viktor Grohovsky, of the Urals Federal University, told Russian media that the material contained about 10% iron.

Home Secretary will pass a new law demanding Article 8 of the Human Rights Act should no longer be a bar to deportation

Theresa May yesterday went to war with Britain’s judges after it emerged that almost every successful deportation appeal by a foreign criminal is now based on their human right to ‘a family life’.

The Home Secretary issued instructions to the courts last July that overseas convicts should normally be booted out regardless of their family circumstances.

But immigration judges have been defying her on the grounds that the guidance was not primary legislation so does not carry the same weight as Labour’s Human Rights Act.

MANADO, Indonesia — Rescuers found five more bodies in the mud after flooding and landslides in northern Indonesia, bringing the death toll to 15 after the disaster that sent thousands fleeing for safe ground, police and witnesses said Monday.

Radiation leak on nuclear sub off Scots coast

HMS Tireless was taking part in a training exercise for new officers off the west coast 10 days ago when a problem developed in its ageing 30-year-old reactor system.

The 4,800 tonne Trafalgar-class submarine was ordered to limp back to Faslane naval base on the Clyde, where engineers inspected the leak. She has now returned to her home base at Devonport and faces up to 10 months in dry dock while repair work is carried out.

The incident has reduced the hunter-killer fleet to five subs instead of the recommended seven plus a spare needed to carry out vital duties, including protecting the UK’s Trident missile-carrying Vanguard subs.

Ex-Cop Dorner: Supporters Rally Against LAPD

Protesters have come out in support of Christopher Dorner, the ex-police officer and suspected killer of four who died after a shootout and fire this week at a mountain cabin.

Dozens of people rallied outside the Los Angeles Police Department on Saturday to speak out against what they called police corruption and brutality.

They said they did not condone Dorner's murderous methods, but believe his claims of racism and of being unfairly fired from the LAPD.

Syria: The Growing Power Of Jihadist Groups

The number of Jihadist groups flooding into Syria two years after the start of the uprising is threatening to eclipse the power of mainstream opposition groups as well as the authority of the Free Syrian Army.

One of the increasingly influential groups, Jabah al Haq (The Front for Justice), told Sky News that Jihad is spreading across North Africa and the Middle East and will not stop at Syria but will include Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq and even Israel.

The frontline in the Battle for Aleppo is constantly changing. You know when you are there; the people disappear.

Japanese god and birth that can't fly become best friends



Five years ago, a dog and bird met for the first time, and they’ve been inseparable ever since. Here is their story.

While on a walk with his owner, Momo suddenly ran to a spot and started barking. Her owner, Mr. Yamashita, approached to check what had got Momo so worked up. Sure enough, there was a weak bird on the ground, unable to fly. Yamashita named the bird Suzume.

Yamashita took the bird home, hoping to nurse it back to health. However, even though he was able to keep him alive, Suzume would never be able to fly, so Yamashita registered with a volunteer wildlife protection organization near his home in Chiba Prefecture in order to learn how to properly care for Suzume.

US scrambles jet fighters after Russian nuclear bombers circle American airspace over Guam

Two Russian bombers have been caught circling the US island of Guam in a 'highly unusual' move some are claiming shows President Vladimir Putin's growing strategic assertiveness towards America.

The aircraft - Russian Tu-95 Bear-H bombers capable of carrying nuclear weapons - flew over the western Pacific island just hours before Obama's state of the union address on Tuesday and were intercepted by Air Force F-15 jets.

Dozens of protesters rallied outside Los Angeles police headquarters Saturday in support of Christopher Dorner, the former LAPD officer and suspected killer of four who died after a shootout and fire this week at a mountain cabin following one of the biggest manhunts in recent memory.

Protesters told the Los Angeles Times they didn't support Dorner's deadly methods, but objected to police corruption and brutality, and believed Dorner's claims of racism and unfair treatment by the department.

Many said they were angered by the conduct of the manhunt that led to Dorner's death and injuries to innocent bystanders who were mistaken for him.

Facebook to pay NO tax for 2012 and will even get tax refund of $429m despite $1BN profits

Facebook will not pay any tax for 2012 despite making $1.1 billion in pre-tax profits from U.S. operations, according to a report released on Thursday.

But Mark Zuckerberg's company will also get a multimillion dollar tax refund of around $429 million according to Citizens for Tax Justice (CTJ).

The refunds reportedly come from tax deductions on executive stock options and share awards.

Hate preacher Choudary who pockets £25,000 a year in benefits tells fanatics to live off the state while they plot holy war

A controversial Muslim cleric who lives off benefits is urging his followers to also sponge off UK taxpayers by claiming their 'Jihadseeker's allowance'.

Anjem Choudary, who in the past has planned to disrupt the minute's silence on Remembrance Sunday, also openly mocked hard-working Britons, calling them 'slaves'.

The Sun newspaper secretly filmed him saying Islam will overrun Europe, David Cameron and Barack Obama should be killed and calling the Queen 'ugly'.

The father-of-four takes home more than £25,000 a year in benefits and lives in a £320,000 house in Leytonstone, East London.

'Sporadic meteor': Fireball reported across California sky



Hours after a meteor exploded over Russia and injured more than 1,000 people and an asteroid passed relatively close to Earth, people in California reported seeing an unusual flash of light over the San Francisco Bay area that left many startled and thrilled.

Based on reports, the light streaking in the Northern California sky was a sporadic meteor, or fireball, and not a major event, said Mike Hankey, operations manager for the American Meteor Society in Genesee, New York. The group recorded at least 35 reports of the event, he said.

“Fireballs happen every single night, all around the world,” he said.

Florida hit by "tsunami" of tax identity fraud

Bruce Parton was only a few weeks from retirement after 30 years as a mail carrier in sunny Florida.

He never lived to fulfill his retirement plan of moving back to a quiet life in the Catskill mountains of New York, not far from where he grew up on Long Island.

Instead, he was gunned down on his daily mail route in December 2010 by members of an identity theft ring who stole his master key as part of a scheme to claim fraudulent tax refunds.

Horsemeat: 'Ministers Were Warned In 2011'

But he told the paper the letter to former minister Sir Jim Paice on behalf of Britain's largest horse meat exporter, High Peak Meat Exports, which warned that flesh with possible drug residue getting into food could blow up into a scandal, was ignored.
