Cash machines EMPTIED across Cyprus after savers learn £8.7billion EU bailout includes 10% tax on ALL bank accounts...... Another Example of EU Daylight Robbery

Worried savers have emptied ATMs across Cyprus after the cash-strapped country secured a €10billion (£8.7billion) bailout agreement that includes a levy on all the country's bank accounts.

The island nation has been bailed out by European partners and the International Monetary Fund in a bid to prevent it entering a bankruptcy which could rekindle the region's debt crisis.

Lines formed at many ATMs as people scrambled to pull their money out after word that the rescue package included a one-off levy on deposits, an unprecedented step in the eurozone crisis.

Rabies Organ Donor Death Sparks Virus Fears

US officials are trying to identify people in at least five states who had close contact with an organ donor who died of rabies - or the four recipients.

Public and military officials are also trying to track down all those who have come into contact with the transplant patients because they might need treatment too.

The alert follows the death of one of the recipients - a patient in Maryland who received a kidney over a year ago - who died of the virus in March, some 18 months after the operation.

Doctors did not test the donor for rabies before offering his kidneys, heart and liver to people in Florida, Georgia, Illinois and Maryland.

Rebels fight Sudanese government troops in south Darfur

Sudanese rebels said on Saturday they had killed more than 200 soldiers in South Darfur, but the government said its troops had suffered only a "number" of casualties and repulsed an ambush.

War broke out in the western region of Darfur over a decade ago and has raged ever since despite two peace accords and the presence of the world's largest peacekeeping mission.

Fed's Fisher: Too-big-to-fail banks are "crony" capitalists

The largest U.S. banks are "practitioners of crony capitalism," need to be broken up to ensure they are no longer considered too big to fail, and continue to threaten financial stability, a top Federal Reserve official said on Saturday.

Richard Fisher, president of the Dallas Fed, has been a critic of Wall Street's disproportionate influence since the financial crisis. But he was now taking his message to an unusual audience for a central banker: a high-profile Republican political action committee.

Fisher said the existence of banks that are seen as likely to receive government bailouts if they fail gives them an unfair advantage, hurting economic competitiveness.

Could manuka honey beat drug-resistant superbugs?

It is a natural medicine used for thousands of years to clean wounds and fight bacteria.

Now, however, honey could hold the key to combating the very modern threat of drug-resistant superbugs.

A study has shown that manuka honey can fight back on two fronts. Not only can it help to kill MRSA and other superbugs, it can also prevent bacteria from becoming resistant to antibiotics.

French first lady accused of 'embezzlement' for funding lavish lifestyle with taxpayers' money despite not actually being married

The French first lady was today accused of ‘embezzlement’ because she is using taxpayers’ money while not actually married.

In a criminal case which places a question mark against President Francois Hollande’s decision to have a live-in-lover, Miss Trierweiler is described as nothing more than a ‘mistress’.

Xavier Kemlin, a multi-millionaire Frenchman, insists that the 48-year-old magazine journalist ‘should not take advantage’ of public funds.

Italy has been caught in an impasse since the election in February that saw the center-left alliance of Pier Luigi Bersani gain a lower house majority but miss the numbers needed to control the Senate as well and form a government.

Other EU governments rebuffed efforts by Paris and London at an EU summit on Friday to lift the Syrian arms embargo to help opponents of President Bashar al-Assad, although they asked foreign ministers to discuss it again next week.

Cyprus Bailout: Savers Lose Money In EU Deal which Pure theft!

Anyone with savings in a Cyprus bank will lose some of their money under a ground-breaking bailout deal agreed by European finance ministers.

Bank customers will pay a levy of up to 9.9% on their savings, a charge which will raise nearly 6bn euros (£5.1bn).

Cyprus is the fifth country to seek a bailout following Greece, Ireland, Portugal and Spain but the terms of the deal are a radical departure from previous schemes.

SWAT officer attracts ridicule after he’s pictured with his rifle sight on backwards

As users on the military Reddit were quick to point out when the image was posted, the reverse sight makes it effectively useless.

A U.S. Army veteran who was fighting for Syrian rebel forces says he is alive and well after a pro-Syrian government group posted a video on YouTube claiming that he had been killed.

The bloodied face of someone resembling Eric Harroun, 30, of Phoenix, was shown in the video, which was posted Wednesday under the title, 'Terrorists, including American Extremist "Eric Harroun" Have Been Terminated.'

But Harroun told MailOnline from his personal email account on Friday that 'Syrian Media must be smoking something, because I am alive and well chilling in Istanbul having a martini at the moment.'

MailOnline obtained Harroun's email address from a family member and has communicated with him in the past using the same email address.

But they embarrassingly found themselves in a minority of three - with only Slovenia coming out to support their stance.

Up in flames: Protester turns into fireball after riot police shoot petrol bomb he was about to throw during Bahrain uprisings

A Bahraini anti-government protester was engulfed in flames when a shot fired by riot police hit the petrol bomb in his hand in Sanabis on Thursday.

Opposition leaders reported that 35 protesters were injured, three critically, and the government said several police officers were hurt.

Protests and clashes erupted in opposition areas nationwide with government opponents blocking roads, closing shops and staying home from work and school.

Matthew Jenart tried to lure a girl of 11 into online sex but was freed by a judge. Now the mother who trapped him says: Don't let YOUR child be next

The name Matthew Jenart began to circulate among parents in Teesside last October. Word had got round that the 28-year-old had been contacting schoolgirls as young as ten on Facebook and seeking to engage them in online chat.
Parents were determined to do something about the internet predator in their midst, but were unsure how to go about it.

That was until the 11-year-old daughter of a woman we shall call Sarah received a message from him. She told her mother, who resolved to discover exactly what he had in mind, and to stop him doing it.

So she set a trap. Posing as her daughter, she instigated a conversation with him on Facebook. Within minutes, she had got the result she was after.

Jenart, claiming to be 15, suggested he and the young girl should engage in some ‘naughty fun’. Asked what he meant, he was explicit: ‘Naked fun,’ adding: ‘It’s only fun, try it you will like it.’

Sarah was sickened by the conversation but was satisfied that she had ‘nailed’ this man for seeking to sexually abuse innocent children. She felt confident that if she went to the police, Jenart would be jailed and the threat to schoolgirls around the area of Thornaby and beyond would be removed.

But she was wrong. Even though Jenart admitted attempting to incite a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity, Teesside Crown Court Recorder Robert Adams allowed him to walk free on Wednesday.

Savers forced to bear costs in Cyprus bailout

The euro zone struck a deal on Saturday to hand Cyprus a bailout worth 10 billion euros ($13 billion), but demanded depositors in its banks forfeit some money to stave off bankruptcy despite the risks of a wider bank run.

Cyprus becomes the fifth country after Greece, Ireland, Portugal and Spain to turn to the euro zone for financial help in the wake of the region's debt crisis.

In a radical departure from previous aid packages, euro zone ministers forced Cyprus' savers, almost half of whom are believed to be non-resident Russians, to pay up to 10 percent of their deposits to raise almost 6 billion euros.

HUNDREDS of Pakistani Christians became homeless in Badami Bagh, Lahore, on Saturday, March 9 after an attack by a mob of 3000 fanatics. Two hundred homes in the Joseph Colony were turned to ashes and poor Christians of the neighbourhood are now living in the streets, desperate for food and other needs. Their children cannot attend school or college due to the destruction and fear. Many residents have expressed great dismay and sorrow, and depression is seeping through the entire community.

One Sajid Masih said, “I feel helpless and unable to do anything for myself and my family”, as he broke into tears. Christians around the country are incensed by the recurring theme of blasphemy allegation followed by attacks and burning down of their vulnerable communities. They have held protests across the country in a concerted effort to vent their disgust at the recent incident and to show solidarity with the victims.

U.S. to bolster missile defences to counter North Korea threat - Hagel

U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced plans on Friday to bolster U.S. missile defences in response to "irresponsible and reckless provocations" by North Korea, which threatened a preemptive nuclear strike against the United States last week.

Hagel said the Pentagon would add 14 new anti-missile interceptors at Fort Greely in Alaska - an effective reversal of an early Obama administration decision - and move ahead with the deployment of a second missile-defense radar in Japan.

The Pentagon also left open the possibility of creating a site on the U.S. East Coast where the Pentagon could field more interceptors capable of striking down an incoming missile. The 14 additional interceptor deployments would cost nearly $1 billion and must be approved by Congress.

Brett Webber banned after ramming police while 'chased by aliens'

A driver who rammed a police car because he thought he was being chased by aliens has been banned from driving and ordered to receive psychiatric treatment.

Brett Webber was in the grip of a psychotic episode when he drove for more than a mile through Exeter on the rims of his van's wheels after all four tyres had been punctured by a police stinger device.

He swerved onto the wrong side of the road during the low speed chase which reached just 25 mph and ended when police cars forced him off the road and into a wall at Rydon Lane.

Throughout the journey Webber was sounding his horn because he believed its noise would ward off the pursuing aliens, Exeter Crown Court was told.

CELEBRITIES HAVING SEIZURES: WHAT’S GOING ON?

Lil Wayne is the latest celebrity to be hospitalized following seizures. It’s an absolutely terrifying medical emergency, one that most of us will never encounter in our lives. Why, then, are we seeing it in young, seemingly healthy stars? Let’s take a look at some of the more notable cases.

In October 2012, the rapper suffered from “seizure-like symptoms” but his reps were quick to dismiss the mid-flight crisis as “a severe migraine and dehydration.”

It’s now being reported that, on March 12, 2013, Lil Wayne suffered “multiple seizures” after shooting a music video.

Kelly Osbourne
This one shocked a lot of people. Kelly Osbourne, the daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, was on the set of her show, Fashion Police, when she collapsed and slid out of her chair while apparently having a seizure.

Rick Ross
Almost exactly a year before Lil Wayne, Rick Ross had two seizures in the same day, both times on a plane. During the first one, which occurred in the morning, he was actually unconscious and needed CPR.
