A Texas preschooler gets the surprise of his young life... his military mom, home early from deployment overseas.

4-year-old John Chapman filed into his school's cafeteria, expecting nothing unusual.

He was among students being honored for hard work for this school year.

But he got more than just an award. He got his mother, Marina.

John Chapman: "I saw my mom and I hug her very fast on the stage to run."

Marina Chapman: "Thinking don't cry, keep it in... keep it in…I did a fairly good job about it but... it was there."

The military mom has been overseas since December. She was able to come home early to surprise her son on his big day.

Marina Chapman: "I know growing up, my mom, she did that for us and once I joined the military, I wasn't too sure whether or not I'd be able to have the same experiences with him. So I'm definitely happy to have been able to come out and see him get some awards.

John Chapman: "My mom went to the airport 100 days and that was too much for my mom."

A weather-beaten pine clinging to a rocky slope in Italy is being called the oldest tree in Europe ever to be scientifically dated. According to a new paper published in the journal Ecology, the species of Heldreich's pine, nicknamed "Italus" by researchers, is at least 1,230 years old. Even more surprising, despite lacking a substantial canopy, this particular pine appears to be thriving, with heavy ring growth added to its trunk over the last several decades.

Vintage denim: 125-year-old Levis sell for nearly $100K-teaser

PORTLAND, Maine—A buyer with a penchant for vintage denim has plunked down nearly $100,000 for a pair of truly vintage jeans that come from the American Old West.

The 125-year-old Levi Strauss & Co. blue jeans, which failed to sell at auction in 2016, now have a new owner somewhere in Southeast Asia.

"It's somebody who loves old Levis," said Daniel Buck Soules from Daniel Buck Auctions, who worked for 11 years on public television's "Antiques Roadshow."

The price puts it near record territory for old Levis. But the private sale agreement prevents Soules from disclosing the exact price or the buyer's location, he said. The buyer sent a representative to Maine to inspect the jeans before buying them on May 15, he said.

There's no mystery behind the jeans.

They were purchased in 1893 by Solomon Warner, a storekeeper in the Arizona Territory. Warner was a colorful character who established one of the first stores selling American dry goods in Tucson and survived being shot by Apache Indians in 1870.

The denim was produced at a mill in New Hampshire, and the jeans were manufactured by Levi's in San Francisco. Unlike modern Levis, the jeans in those days had only a single back pocket. There were no belt loops because men used suspenders back then.

The denim befits a larger-than-life character. The cotton jeans, with button fly, had a size 44 waist and 36-inch inseam, suggesting Warner was not a small man.

They'd been stored for decades in a trunk and were in pristine condition because Warner wore them only a few times before falling ill, Soules said.

Soules put the jeans up for auction in 2016, but a computer glitch botched the online bidding. Then the owner decided to go the private-sale route, he said.

There's a market for rare jeans.

A pair of 501 jeans manufactured in the 1880s sold for $60,000 to a Japanese collector, Soules said, and another pair, from 1888, sold for six figures.

« Résistons à l’autoritarisme et commémorons le massacre du 4 juin 1989 » . C'est en chantant ce slogan que des centaines de Hongkongais sont descendus dans la rue ce dimanche.

Il y a 29 ans sur la place Tian'anmen de Pékin, l'armée chinoise avait écrasé dans le sang des manifestations pour la démocratie. Plusieurs centaines de personnes avaient été tuées.

Les militants de Hong Hong ne veulent pas oublier. Ils s'inquiètent du durcissement de ton de Pékin contre toute forme de contestation de sa souveraineté sur l'ancienne colonie britannique.

« Nous voulons mettre fin à la dictature du parti unique en Chine. C'est ce que nous voulons, c'est ce que nous demandons pour la Chine. Il faut que nous ayons du courage pour porter un message de vérité face au pouvoir » , a déclaré Albert Ho, président du parti démocrate de Hong Kong.


Le territoire semi-autonome de Hong Kong est le seul endroit de Chine où la commémoration de Tian'anmen est ouvertement marquée. Comme chaque année une marche et une veillée seront organisées le 4 juin prochain.

Astronomers have changed Pluto's status from planet to dwarf planet, but it’s possible now that it may not be any kind of planet at all. In a new study published in the scientific journal 'Icarus', scientists say they have found fascinating similarities between Pluto and the 67P comet studied by the European Space Agency’s Rosetta spacecraft back in 2004. According to Southwest Research Institute’s Christopher Glein in a press release, based on its chemical makeup, Pluto could be a “giant comet,” or the result of a "billion comets coming together."

Colombia elige hoy presidente y el rumbo del proceso de paz

2018-05-27    0 views
El presidente colombiano, Juan Manuel Santos, ha madrugado a la hora de votar en los comicios que marcan el final de su mandato y pueden poner en jaque su legado de paz. El candidato mejor situado en los sondeos, con un 40% en intención de voto, es el derechista Iván Duque, del Centro Democrático. Duque ha prometido que revisará, para endurecerlo, el acuerdo de paz alcanzado con las FARC y pone condiciones a la continuidad de las negociaciones con el ELN.

Tras depositar su papeleta, Santos se dirigió a la nube de periodistas que le seguía:

"Los presidentes, de acuerdo a nuestro sistema político, no podemos terciar por un candidato o por el otro, no podemos manifestarnos sobre por quién vamos a votar, pero sí debemos hacer todo lo que esté a nuestro alcance para que quien gane gane con transparencia y con todas las garantías".

Un mensaje y una actitud diametralmente opuestos mostró su antecesor en el cargo, el derechista Álvaro Uribe, que ejerce de mentor de Iván Duque. Uribe, muy crítico con el proceso de paz, dejó claro qué nombre llevaba su papeleta:


"He votado por Iván Duque, con admiración por su firmeza, y a esa mezcla tan difícil y tan importante que es la firmeza con la decencia", sentenció Uribe.

El segundo candidato mejor situado, con un 30% en intención de voto, es el exguerrillero del M19 Gustavo Petro, un populista combativo que ha galvanizado el apoyo de millones de jóvenes y que quiere acelerar la implementación del acuerdo de paz.

Utah native Josh Holt was reunited with his family in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, May 26, after spending two years detained in Venezuela for allegedly spying and stockpiling weapons.

Josh Holt, a Mormon missionary, his Venezuelan wife Thamara Caleño and her daughter were seen embracing Holt’s parents in a video released by the office of Senator Orrin Hatch.

The 84-year-old Republican Senator for Utah was among those who advocated for Holt’s release. In an accompanying statement on his Facebook page, he said the reunion came “after two years of hard work.”

Holt returned to the United States with his wife, who he married in Venezuela in June 2016, and her daughter from a previous relationship, ABC News reported. The couple were imprisoned in Caracas on charges of terrorism and espionage, which they consistently denied. Earlier in May, Holt made a desperate Facebook plea for help after a riot at the prison where they were held.

Ebola hemorrhagic fever is a disease with a high fatality rate. It most commonly affects people and nonhuman primates such as monkeys, gorillas and chimpanzees. The fever is caused by an infection with one of five known Ebola virus species. Four of the strains can cause severe illness in humans and animals. The current outbreak in Congo is due to the Zaire ebolavirus, which has the highest mortality rate. Ebola is named after the Ebola River in what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo. The virus was first recognized in 1976, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
