Zombie alarm in Florida

Thursday, May 24, 2018

Emergency data in Palm Beach warned of “extreme zombie activity” during a power outage in the middle of the night.

Last night to Sunday, residents experienced a nightmare in the quiet suburbs of Lake Worth, in the county of Palm Beach on the coast of Florida, writing the Palm Beach Post. First, thousands of residents lost power.

Then, at 01:41 at night, they could read a push message on the mobile phone, which strikes a power outage, then hit the full zombie alarm. However, the message tried to reassure residents that the “extreme zombie activity” affects fewer than 7380 customers.

Following the zombie alarm, the city spokesman Ben Kerr had to complain. “I want to emphasize that at the present time, Lake Worth does not have any zombie activity,” he assured. Kerr announces that the city “looks at the matter” about why the automatic alert system reported zombies.

The message was written in capital letters and also referred to “Terminus”. “Terminus” was one of the hangouts of Rick and his gang in the “The Walking Dead” zombie survival scene.

Kerr tells Gizmodo that the automated warning system was hacked before August last year when a series of zombie messages were sent but were snapped up before reaching the audience.

The system has thousands of pre-programmed messages, which have been modified to deal with zombies. The authorities are now trying to clean the messages.

Kerr says that Lake Worth investigates hacking.

“Hopefully, next time there is a warning about zombie invasion, it will be a real zombie invasion,” Kerr told Gizmodo.

Chaos in the emergency notification systems in the United States is nothing new. On January 13 this year, Hawaii residents received a push message about “incoming ballistic missile” where it was stressed that it was not an exercise.

Mother convicted in UK of forcing teen daughter to marry

Wednesday 23 may 2018

LONDON: A British jury has convicted a woman of forcing her teenage daughter to marry a man 16 years her senior in Pakistan, a rare criminal prosecution in England for forced marriage.

The victim says she was 13-years-old, when she was forced to enter a marriage contract with the man, became pregnant and had an abortion.

She says that as her 18th birthday approached in 2016, she was tricked into going to Pakistan for what she thought was a family vacation and made to marry the man instead.

The girl eventually returned to Britain with government help.

Her mother was found guilty Tuesday at Birmingham Crown Court of forced marriage and perjury.

The woman, who can’t be named to protect the identity of her daughter, is set to be sentenced Wednesday.

Conspiracy theories about Hitler buried:

He did not escape to Argentina on a submarine

Scientists have examined the dictator’s teeth and skulls.

For those who might have thought that Germany’s dictator Adolf Hitler did not die in 1945 but, on the other hand, fled to Argentina in a submarine, the suspicion can now definitely be buried.

We can stop all these conspiracy theories about Hitler. He did not fly to Argentina in a submarine, he is not in a hidden base in the Antarctica or on the dark side of the moon, says professor Philippe Charlier, a specialist in medical and legal anthropology, to AFP news agency.

Charlier has previously also been noted with investigations of historical individuals, both Richard Lionheart and Jeanne d’Arc.

Died in 1945

He and four other French scientists received access by the Russian intelligence service FSB and Russian state archives in 2017 to investigate a skull that was said to originate from Hitler. According to Charlier, the skull shone well with radiographic surveys made by Hitler’s skull one year before his death.

Our study shows that Hitler died in 1945, the French professor says very definitely.

Bullet and cyanide

The balloon hole in Hitler’s skull and blue deposits on Hitler’s dental prostheses, according to Philippe Chariger’s opinion, can end a discussion as to whether the dictator died of shooting himself or eating cyanide.

“Most likely, both are”, says Charlier to AFP.

Royal wedding reflects a change in Britain

Friday, May 18, 2018

When millions of people visits, or watch tv Saturday morning for the British royal wedding, there will be talk of fairy tales and plenty of cinematic shots of Prince Harry and his bride, Meghan Markle, riding in a horse-drawn carriage past thousands of cheering fans with the turrets of Windsor Castle in the background.

“If you look at royal history and you look at how things are changing in terms of diversity, the fact that Meghan Markle is going to be married to one of the princes … that’s massive!” said an supporter. “At the end of the day, I think it’s important for me as a colored woman to be able to identify with the leadership in this country.”

The family has not always been popular and their problems have gone beyond the usual complaints about how much they cost and how much of anachronism monarchy seems today.

Royal watchers say that by accepting a self made negro woman into the family, the Windsors will seem a little more open and a bit more in touch with some of the shifts in the United Kingdom, particularly multicultural London, where more than one-third of the population is foreign-born and 41 percent are black or other minorities.

But beyond the ceremony and royal craft at which the British excel, there is a genuine story about a changing Britain, a complicated American family, a resilient monarchy and the saving of a “difficult prince”.
