D.B. Cooper mystery: 45 years on, skyjacker who stole $200,000 remains an enigma - TomoNews
 
07:05
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON — It’s almost 45 years since a hijacker known by the pseudonym “D.B. Cooper” jumped out of plane above America’s Pacific Northwest clutching a $200,000 cash ransom. More than four decades later, the crime has never been solved and the FBI stopped actively investigating the case in July. The legend of D.B. Cooper began at the Northwest Orient Airlines flight counter at Portland International Airport on Nov. 24, 1971, when a man identifying himself as “Dan Cooper” paid cash for a one-way ticket on Flight 305 to Seattle, a mere 30-minute journey. On board, Cooper showed a flight attendant an explosive device in his briefcase and demanded $200,000 in cash, four parachutes, and a fuel truck on standby at the airport in Seattle. The plane landed at Seattle-Tacoma Airport, where a bag filled with cash and parachutes was delivered, and Cooper released all 36 passengers, along with two flight attendants. The plane took off again, bound for Mexico City, scheduled to stop to refuel in Reno, Nevada. As Cooper sat alone in the cabin, crew members in the cockpit noticed a sudden upward tilt in the plane’s tail section, which required trimming to get the aircraft back to its flight level. Investigators believe this could be the moment D.B. Cooper made his exit by leaping into the freezing cold air, through the clouds, and to an unknown fate. In all the years that have followed, only two pieces of hard evidence have ever been found. In 1978, a hunter found the fragment of a placard for lowering the back stairs of a Boeing 727 along the flight path of the plane. Two years later, about 20 miles southwest of Ariel, Washington a boy discovered $5,800 in damaged cash from Cooper’s haul. The FBI has investigated more than a thousand suspects in the case, but has never been able to identify D.B. Cooper. The bureau officially ended active investigation of the case in July, citing a lack of new information. More than $194,000, the equivalent of more than a million dollars today, has never been recovered. The FBI suspects that D.B. Cooper didn’t survive the jump, but their guess about what really happened is as good as yours or mine. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Crying dog breaks the internet’s heart — but this sad dog story has a happy ending" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4prKTN9bYQc -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

JonBenet Ramsey case: New DNA testing planned after report revealed flaws - TomoNews
 
02:06
BOULDER, COLORADO — New DNA testing is planned in the investigation of the unsolved murder of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey, who was found dead in 1996. An exclusive report revealed flaws in the interpretation of previous DNA testing. According to a joint report by Daily Camera and 9News, the DNA samples from JonBenet’s long johns belong to at least two people, in addition to herself. Also, the DNA profile gathered from JonBenet’s underwear could be a composite and not just from a single individual. The new findings make the link between the DNA found in the underwear and the long johns extremely weak, and could result in the DNA findings being considered evidence. Mary Lacy, the district attorney at the time, was given this analysis of the DNA. However, she concluded that the DNA found in JonBenet’s underwear and the DNA found in her long johns pointed to an unknown male. This conclusion exonerated the Ramsey family from suspicion in 2008. Lacy did not respond to requests for comment after the report revealed the DNA findings failed to support her decision to exonerate the Ramsey family. JonBenet was found murdered in the basement of the family house in Boulder, Colorado. Her mother, Patsy Ramsey said she realized her daughter was missing after finding a ransom letter on the kitchen staircase the morning after Christmas and quickly phoned the police. However, police did not find her body during the initial search of the house. It was her father, John Ramsey, who found JonBenet’s body in the wine cellar room in the basement that afternoon. JonBenet was duct taped over the month and her wrists were tied. A garrote was found around her neck and her skull was fractured due to a heavy blow. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Chinese tourist behaving badly: woman’s rants at Chinese tourist in Thailand goes viral - TomoNews
 
04:40
PHUKET, THAILAND — This Beijing woman, known as “Sister Bin,” is perhaps fsat becoming the world’s favorite Chinese tourist. Why? Because she had the audacity to call out her greedy fellow Chinese tourists for trying to take home a piece of wood from Lover’s Beach in Phuket, Thailand. In the three-minute video that Sister Bin posted on her Weibo page, she described an incident in which a woman from Jiangsu tried to take a large piece of wood home from the beach, despite the fact that the tour guides had told her multiple times that she was not allowed to do so. Sister Bin told the audience that she took it upon herself to tell the tour guide to report the offending woman to customs. Sister Bin then went on cursing and swearing about how Chinese tourists often disrespect other countries’ laws and treat every place like their own homes. This made Sister Bin an instant internet celebrity, helping her amass almost 5,000 followers on Weibo and over 6,000 followers on Facebook. She also seems to be determined to continue her mission to monitor the behaviour of Chinese tourists around the world. Go Sister Bin!

Theme park accident: Father and son severely burned on hot metal slide ride in Utah - TomoNews
 
01:45
PARK CITY, UTAH — A family’s summer vacation went horribly awry after a day at the theme park turned into a hellish nightmare. Kenny Edwards and his son suffered severe burns while on a slide at Utah’s Olympic Park, and believe the park’s management is not giving riders enough warning about the slide’s dangers, according to a Facebook page the family set up about their ordeal. On July 3, Edwards and his 4-year-old son were going down the Alpine slide when the sled they were on stopped at a turn and sent them tumbling onto the hot metal. Edwards grabbed the edge of the hot slide and managed to maneuver his son into his lap, but didn’t realize the severity of his burns until the boy pointed them out to him. The skin on his hands had peeled off, and the flesh underneath was red and raw. Edwards got off the slide and flagged down another rider to help bring his son down, reports KUTV. The kind stranger delivered the severely injured boy to his waiting mother. The Texas father of two eventually made it down the slide on the defective sled, with third-degree burns all over his body. The hot metal cooked parts of his leg, elbow and almost 90 percent of his backside. Riders are told beforehand not to touch the hot slide, but aren’t informed that doing so could result in severe injuries. The family is now seeking to get the park to give more explicit warnings about the slide, especially as visitors are required to sign waivers assuming responsibility for any injury or death. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Body cam: murder suspect is stopped by cop, pulls out knife and begs officer to kill him - TomoNews
 
02:25
CINCINNATI — Intense body cam footage from a police officer in Ohio has been released of a near-deadly incident that took place along Interstate 75 on March 29. The footage captures the moment a man reportedly wanted for homicide attempts to stab a cop, gets shot by the cop, and then begs the cop to finish him off. Javier Pablo Aleman was wanted in Baltimore after allegedly stabbing and killing his roommate, 51-year-old Victor Adolfo Serrano, on March 17. The cop wearing the bodycam sure doesn’t have a clue who he’s talking to, but he seems to know something’s not quite right. When questioned, Aleman tells the officer he just got off the bus from Dayton, Ohio, and is waiting for someone to come pick him up. Aleman says he has no ID on him. When asked for a name, the shady-looking character stutters, then says his name is Carlos. Officer Josh Hilling doesn’t quite buy it, and lets him know he’s going to have to subject him to a routine pat down, to make sure he’s got no weapons on him. Unfortunately, Aleman does indeed have a weapon on him, and decides to pull out an eight-inch knife. Aleman threatens Officer Hilling with the knife, apparently not very interested in getting busted. Reacting to the weapon, Officer Hilling shoots Aleman in the abdomen, but that doesn’t stop him. Brandishing the knife, Aleman repeatedly asks the cop to kill him. Officer Hilling instead continues to plead with him, asking Aleman to please drop the blade. Though faced with an aggressive crook wielding a deadly weapon, Hilling resists pulling the trigger again, hoping to calm the man down. Hilling’s backup finally arrives, and after several minutes of heated negotiations, Aleman gives himself up and allows the officers to arrest him. The incident took place on March 29, and Aleman has been in hospital recovering from his lone gunshot wound ever since. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Cambodia lost cities: Vast Khmer empire discovered hidden under the jungle - TomoNews
 
01:35
SIEM REAP, CAMBODIA — A vast network of previously undocumented medieval cities has been discovered near Cambodia’s Angkor Wat temple. Researchers using LIDAR scanning technology found multiple cities beneath the jungle, the Guardian reported. The cities had complex urban landscapes and were linked by roads and canals. They range from 900 to 1,400 years old and would have been part of the largest empire on earth in the 12th century. LIDAR is a detection system similar to radar, which uses lasers instead of radio waves. It is used with GPS to produce 3D models and maps. Last year, a helicopter mounted with LIDAR technology scanned a 734-square-mile area near Angkor Wat, according to the Guardian. The data revealed the true scale of the lost city of Mahendraparvata, which was previously believed to be much smaller. In fact, Mahendraparvata was about the same size as Cambodia’s present capital Phnom Penh. The scans show the ancient cities had sophisticated water management systems built hundred of years before it was believed the technology existed, the Guardian reported. Geometric shapes thought to be gardens were also discovered. Historians told the Guardian the groundbreaking discovery would help us understand more about Angkorian civilization and the decline of the Khmer empire. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Grizzly bear attack: Bear snaps hiker’s arm - he then walks 3 miles to his car - TomoNews
 
02:11
MADISON VALLEY, MONTANA — A grizzly bear attack in Bear Creek almost killed a man. Somehow, he miraculously survived, walked three miles and drove himself nearly 20 more miles to the nearest hospital. Todd Orr says he was walking along a hiking trail scouting for elk when he spotted a mother grizzly bear and her two cubs. When the mother charged at Todd, he tried hitting her with bear spray from 25 feet away, but she ran through the mist and took him to the ground. He tried to lay as motionless as possible while the bear had her way with him, biting him on the shoulders, arms and backpack. At some point she must’ve got bored and left, so Todd tried to get to his car. About 10 minutes later, the bear returned for another attack. This time, she bit him so hard on his forearm, it cracked the bone. Surprisingly, after a few more bites, the crazed sow gave pause and walked away. Stunned, Todd got up, thanked God and made a video of his account, which he later posted to Facebook. The video has accumulated more than 30 million views in less than two days. After driving himself 17 miles to the hospital, it took them eight hours to stitch Todd back together. Fortunately, he’s expected to make a full recovery. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Laser propulsion: NASA's laser-powered spacecraft will fly to Mars in 72 hours - TomoNews
 
01:41
SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA — NASA scientist Philip Lubin is working on perfecting laser technology that could propel a light spacecraft to Mars in as little as three days. In order for spacecraft to achieve faster speeds, Lubin proposes using an electromagnetic propulsion system that uses light and radiation, rather than the current fuel-based rocket propulsion system. Photonic propulsion is a theoretical system that uses the energy and momentum from photons to move objects through space. According to Wired, when photons from a laser array reflect off an object, their energy is translated into a push that's capable of moving objects like a spacecraft. The system would currently work best with robotic spacecraft. According to Lubin, a robotic probe with a thin reflective sail could travel to Mars in three days. On the other hand, a manned shuttle could reach Mars in a month using the laser-based system. He estimates that lasers could accelerate spacecraft to 30 percent the speed of light, which was previously unheard of. Using photonic propulsion, interstellar travel may be possible and sending a probe to Earth's closest star, Alpha Centauri, could take as little as 15 years, reported Space.com. In comparison, our current technology takes four to eight months to get to Mars. It took 37 years for the Voyager 1 spacecraft to reach the edge of our solar system. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Typhoon turbine: Japanese engineer develops wind turbine to harness power from typhoon - TomoNews
 
01:45
TOKYO — A Japanese engineer has designed a new type of wind turbine that he believes would be able to harness power from typhoons. Atsushi Shimizu founded a tech company called Challenergy in 2013 and invented a wind turbine that not only can draw power from the force of wind, but can stay functional during typhoons. The typhoon turbine consists of three vertical blades and a central rod. It has an omnidirectional axis so that it can respond to wind coming from every direction. Instead of driven by a propeller, the turbine makes use of the principle of the Magnus effect: air curves when passing by a rotating object, and the downward deflection of the air-flow produces a lifting force that counteracts the force of gravity, enabling the object to remain airborne. The blades are controlled by the central rod, which can be tightened to slow down, or stop the blades regardless of the external forces. Under normal circumstances, the typhoon turbine can achieve about 30 percent efficiency while conventional wind turbine can achieve 40 percent, ScienceAlert reported. However, conventional wind turbines could be damaged by typhoons while the typhoon turbine would be able to function normally. "Japan actually has a lot more wind power than it does solar power, it's just not utilized," Shimizu told CNN. "Japan has the potential to be a super power of wind.” According to the Japan Guide, about seven or eight typhoons pass over Okinawa prefecture each year, with about three hitting its main islands. Shimizu believes a single typhoon could generate enough energy to power Japan for 50 years. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Smart Floating Farm: Forward Thinking Architecture’s invention could help feed the world - TomoNews
 
02:02
BARCELONA, SPAIN — A Barcelona-based company has developed a solar powered floating farm system that could ease growing food demand around the world. Smart Floating Farms, otherwise known as SFF, was developed by Forward Thinking Architecture. The idea was inspired by traditional grid-shape fish farms in Asia. The structure is 200 meters wide and 350 meters long, which is roughly the size of 6 football fields. They can be connected to form a cluster of modules. The floating farm has three levels: the top level is installed with photovoltaic panels to harvest sunlight for electricity and it has rainwater collectors for irrigation purposes; second level serves as a greenhouse for the vegetables, which are grown without soil under the hydroponic system; and the ground level is used as a fish farm on the open sea, as well as a fish egg hatchery, a slaughterhouse and a storage room for the fish. All the modules are centrally controlled by software via Cloud technology. The production data will be analysed and can be used to make comparisons on food needs for specific cities. Each SFF is estimated to have a maximum production of 8.152 tons of vegetables and 1.703 tons of fish per year. The floating farms are ideal for densely populated cities near coastal areas such as Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo, Singapore and Hong Kong. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Road rage incident turns into fist fight in Walmart parking lot - TomoNews
 
15:09
DENVER — Video footage captured a road rage confrontation that led to a fist fight outside a Walmart in Colorado on June 17. Devin Jones was reportedly riding his motorcycle through a neighborhood in Denver, when he noticed a white sedan speed by him. Jones decided to pursue the sedan, which sped through the streets, zipping around other vehicles and on wrong side of the road. Jones captured the entire incident on his helmet camera, writing that he wanted to follow the guy just to see his face. But, when the sedan’s driver outmaneuvered and out-crazied Jones, the motorcyclist abandoned his chase … or so he thought. After giving up, Jones decided to test out some tires in a dirt lot, and noticed the same speed devil pass by. He followed the vehicle into a Walmart parking lot. Jones confronted the driver, who had a female passenger in the vehicle, asking him why he was in such a hurry, to which the driver explained, “Yo momma f***ed me good.” After the two spent a few minutes exchanging insults, the driver began touching Jones’ motorcycle. When Jones asked him not to, the driver makes a point to touch the bike again. That’s when Jones made his own point by shoving the driver away. The two spar for a few minutes, with Jones getting in a few good punches and shoves before Walmart officials and passersby interrupt. “I should have left it alone but instead I confronted him and let anger make me look like a complete asshole,” Jones wrote about the incident. “I thought it was common knowledge not to hit a motorcycle in front of its lover... owner.” ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Gorilla killed: Gorillas have a history of protecting kids who fall into zoo enclosures - TomoNews
 
02:03
CINCINNATI — The 4-year-old boy who fell into the gorilla enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo isn’t the first child to find himself face to face with one of nature’s most powerful beasts. Harambe, a 17-year-old western lowland gorilla, was shot and killed on Saturday after dragging the boy around a moat because zookeepers feared for the child’s life. The incident sparked a public outcry and brought our relationship with these magnificent endangered creatures into focus. Critics who argue Harambe was in fact protecting the boy can point to two historical precedents to back up their claims, the New York Daily News reported. In 1986, 5-year-old boy Levan Merritt fell into the gorilla enclosure at Jersey Zoo in the U.K., breaking an arm and fracturing his skull, according to archive footage posted to YouTube. With the child lying unconscious, a male silverback named Jambo stood over the boy and protected him from other gorillas. Zookeepers and a paramedic then rescued the boy, and he was pulled out of the enclosure. In 1996, an unnamed 3-year-old boy fell nearly 20 feet into the gorilla enclosure at Brookfield Zoo in Chicago. He was picked up by an 8-year-old female gorilla named Binti Jua, which had recently become a mother. Binti Jua carried the boy to a door in the enclosure and guarded him from other gorillas, helping paramedics to retrieve the child. The boy had a broken hand and cuts to his face, according to WGNTV While these stories have happy endings, the same can not be said for Harambe, as the uproar over the killing of the Cincinnati Zoo gorilla continues to be heard. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Crying dog breaks the internet’s heart — but this sad dog story has a happy ending" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4prKTN9bYQc -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Grandma Wanda texts wrong number about Thanksgiving dinner and invites stranger anyway - TomoNews
 
01:42
PHOENIX, ARIZONA — As has happened to so many of us, 17-year-old Jamal Hinton was receiving text messages from a wrong number, but rather than just move on, he decided to make a connection instead, with the sweet grandmother who mis-dialed him. Earlier this week, Jamal found himself looped into a group chat, getting texts from an unknown number about Thanksgiving dinner. When he asked who it was, the person replied “Your grandma.” When he asked for a picture, the woman sent him a selfie of her, while she was at work. Jamal quickly realized it wasn’t his grandma, but decided to have some fun with the mix up, and sent her a selfie, too. He then took things a step further, boldly asking if he could still have a plate at her family Thanksgiving meal. In classic grandma style, she replied “Of course you can. That’s what grandma’s do … feed everyone.” The woman, Grandma Wanda, was actually trying to reach her grandson, Brandon. What ended up happened was Brandon, his girlfriend and Grandma Wanda having a conversation with Jamal about actually have him over for Thanksgiving dinner at their Arizona home. Jamal’s easily the coolest tag-along guest this year. Unfortunately for Grandma Wanda, when screenshots of the exchange began circulating on Twitter, her phone started blowing up with random requests for seats at the table, so she had to have her number changed. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Future green technology: new solar panels could generate electricity from raindrops - TomoNews
 
01:28
YUNNAN, CHINA — Scientists in China are producing solar panels that can produce energy from the last source you'd expect — rainwater. In a study published in the journal Angewandte Chemie, researchers in China introduced a new type of solar panel that adds a layer of graphene, or carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb structure, to dye-sensitized solar cells. A flexible layer of indium tin oxide and plastic is included underneath. Graphene has unusual properties that allow electrons to move freely throughout the entire layer. According to the researchers, rainwater contains positively charged ions like ammonium, calcium and sodium. When water binds to the panel's surface, a double-layer of positive ions and negatively charged electrons is created, which ends up producing a voltage and current. Tests of the new solar panels have been able to produce hundreds of microvolts, which is small even compared to a standard AA battery, reports Quartz. The solar-to-electric energy conversion stood at about 7 percent, which is much lower than the 20 percent energy conversion achieved by the best solar panels on the market. So there's a long way to go before the new solar panels become more widely used. But more efficient future versions could mean big things for the solar industry. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

ISIS attack: Trapped Russian soldier calls airstrike on himself to kill ISIS fighters - TomoNews
 
01:27
PALMYRA, SYRIA — A transcript of the final communications between soldier Alexander Prokhorenko and Russian Special Forces has been released, detailing the final moments before his called in his own death, trapped in ISIS territory. Prokhorenko was stationed near Palmyra, Syria, in charge of directing airstrikes on ISIS targets. Alone, he suddenly realized he was dangerously low on ammunition and surrounded by terrorists, with no possible escape route. He radioed his commander to communicate his dire situation, and instructed him to go ahead with airstrikes, taking out ISIS jihadists along with his own life in the resulting attack. According to the transcript, Prokhorenko's words were "I am surrounded, they are outside, I don't want them to take me and parade me, conduct the airstrike, they will make a mockery of me and this uniform." His commander refused, ordering Prokhorenko to get to safety before any such command would be ordered. The brave Prokhorenko told him "I want to die with dignity and take all these bastards with me. Please, my last wish, conduct the airstrike, they will kill me either way." His commander acknowledged his plight, ordering in the airstrikes, and sealing Prokhorenko's fate. In his final transmission, he thanked his commander, said he had "the best wife in the world," and was serving the nation he loved. His wife, Ekaterina, was reportedly unaware that her husband was even serving in Syria. They'd been married only 18 months, and reports indicate they were expecting their first child. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Harmony of the Seas: World’s largest cruise ship prepares to set sail on maiden voyage
 
01:10
SOUTHAMPTON, UNITED KINGDOM — The largest cruise ship ever built arrived in the English port of Southampton on Tuesday ready to set sail on its maiden voyage. At 362 meters in length, cruise line Royal Caribbean International’s Harmony of the Seas is a full 100 meters longer than the Titanic, according to the Daily Mail. Its length is the equivalent of four football pitches, the BBC reported. The ship has a passenger capacity of 6,780. It has 20 restaurants, 23 swimming pools, a 10-storey waterslide, two surf simulators, two rock-climbing walls, a full-sized basketball court and an ice-skating rink. “Harmony of the Seas is the world's largest cruise ship. Bigger can be beautiful when it allows you to put so many great facilities on board to allow people to have a great holiday at sea,” Stuart Leven, the managing director for the UK and Ireland of Royal Caribbean International told the Telegraph. One of the key feature of the ship is its bionic bar. Passengers can place drink orders via an app and robotic arms mix and serve the drinks. The two arms can make two drinks per minute. Passengers are given a wristband known as the WOWband, which acts as a room key and can be used to pay for dinner and shopping onboard. Harmony of the Seas is the 25th ship in Royal Caribbean International’s fleet. It cost $1 billion and took two and a half years to build. The ship will leave Southampton for Rotterdam on May 22 on a four-night cruise, the BBC reported. It will then sail to Barcelona, Marseille, Florence, Rome and Naples. ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­---------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Solar panel windows: coating of quantum dots on windows harvest energy from the sun - TomoNews
 
01:37
LOS ALAMOS, NEW MEXICO — Researchers at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico have developed a film of quantum dots that can turn windows into photovoltaic systems. Quantum dots can be used as semiconductors. According to IEEE Spectrum, they consist of a CdSe inner core, a Cd1−xZnxS outer shell and a silica coating that prevents them from oxidation. The quantum dots are spead into a thin sheet that can be placed onto a glass window pane. When photons from sunlight hit a quantum dot, it sends the electron in the valence band into the conduction band, leaving a hole behind. When the electron recombines with the hole in the valence band, a new photon with lower energy is generated. This new photon propagates within the glass via internal reflections. Energy is then generated when the propagating photons reach the window frame, where solar cells are stored. The coating of quantum dots can be used on any window and to turn it into a sunlight harvesters at costs lower than are currently available. The study was published in Nature Energy on Oct 10. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Pregnant mother suffers second degree burn after falling asleep on her iPhone 7 - TomoNews
 
01:22
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA — A pregnant woman in Australia posted a shocking image on Facebook showing the second degree burn she sustained after falling asleep with her charging iPhone 7. 34-year- old Sydney resident Melanie Tan Pelaez was watching movies on her iPhone 7 while it was being charged on Tuesday night, then she fell asleep, news.com.au reported. The next morning when Pelaez wakes up, she feels pain, pins and needles down her arm, realising she’d been left with an mark of the phone and charger etched into her arm. Pelaez visited a general practitioner and a hospital, they matched the markings on her arm to the phone and the charger. Pelaez took the phone to an Apple store. The staff said it wasn’t the phone’s fault since it supposed to shut off if it overheats. And it didn’t smell like an overheated iPhone. After meeting with the doctors, Pelaez wanted to share her awful experience on Facebook and is afraid the same might happen to someone else. Pelaez told news.com.au that Apple tried to give her a new iPhone 7, but she declined as she has lost her faith in the tech giant’s smartphone. Various media have already contacted Apple for comment, Apple said they are now working with Pelaez to investigate the incident. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Space elevator would climb incredible 20-kilometer tower in ambitious Canadian plan
 
01:42
PEMBROKE, ONTARIO, CANADA — A Canadian space company wants to build a space elevator that reaches 20 kilometers high. The company is called Thoth and the concept is called the Thoth X tower. The idea is to build a tower with reinforced inflatable sections. The middle is hollow. An elevator car would encircle the tower until it reaches the top. Thoth estimates the tower would cost $5 billion to construct. As a demonstration project, it would build a precursor tower measuring 1.5 kilometers tall. One feature of the project is the wind farm about three quarters of the way up. The 50 turbines could produce 1 gigawatt of continuous energy. That’s enough to power about 700,000 homes. The main purpose of the tower is to provide a take-off and landing platform for spacecraft. If your aircraft takes off at a 20 kilometer altitude, you can get to space in a single stage without the need for additional fuel stages. Thoth estimates this would save 30% on energy costs. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Florida sinkhole reveals that we've been wrong about when the first Americans arrived - TomoNews
 
02:04
TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA — A collection of fossils and artifacts retrieved from a sinkhole in a river on Florida's Gulf Coast may provide some of the oldest evidence of human presence in North America. The Page-Ladson archaeological site, submerged 35 feet under Florida's Aucilla River, was the site of several digs in the 1980s and 1990s. A new team that included researchers from Florida State University and Texas A&M University decided to follow up on decades-old research between 2012 and 2014. After more than a hundred dives into the sinkhole, the team published their findings last week in the journal Science Advances. The researchers discovered mastodon bones, fossilized dung and stone tools in the sinkhole that provide compelling evidence that humans spread across North America far earlier than archaeologists previously thought. According to their research paper, the stone tools recovered from the sinkhole include a biface, a stone that's been manually sharpened on both ends. On a previous excavation at the site, archaeologists found an adult mastodon tusk that appeared to have human-made grooves along its surface, reported the Christian Science Monitor. Prehistoric humans called the Clovis culture were believed to have originally arrived in North America via a land bridge about 13,000 years ago — as mammoth bones and spearheads have revealed. However, according to the Guardian, some of the artifacts recently discovered within the Aucilla River date back to more than 14,550 years ago when the land bridge may not have existed. What these new discoveries suggest is that a land bridge from Siberia may not be the answer to how the first humans initially colonized North America. Moreover, evidence suggests that people were in North America before the Clovis. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Plane lands in wrong country: AirAsia X flight to KL lands in Melbourne after nav error - TomoNews
 
01:43
SYDNEY — An Australian aviation investigation report has revealed how an AirAsia X flight bound for Malaysia last year accidentally flew to Melbourne instead of its Asian hub after a navigational error. The AirAsia X Airbus A330 was scheduled to fly from Sydney to Kuala Lumpur. Australian authorities say the plane’s captain manually copied the gate coordinates displayed on a sign outside the cockpit window into the flight management guidance system. As he accidentally omitted a zero, the system located the plane near Cape Town, South Africa. Both the captain and the first officer heard several chimes as they prepared for takeoff. They chose to ignore the alerts because there were no other abnormal indications. Immediately after takeoff, an audible alert sounded, warning of terrain in the plane’s flightpath. Not seeing any obstacles, the pilots ignored the warning. The plane had already deviated from its supposed departure flight path and crossed the paths of other aircraft. An airport traffic control officer noticed the deviation and contacted the pilots. Only then did they realize the GPS error on their navigation display. The pilots requested permission to abort the flight and return to Sydney airport, but were unable to turn back due to deteriorating weather. The captain then accepted the alternative route to Melbourne and manually flew the plane to the new destination. AirAsia X told CNN that all of its aircraft have since been equipped with upgraded flight management systems to avoid repeating a similar mistake. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Biogas: Human waste turned into clean power in Cameroon innovative clean energy project - TomoNews
 
01:27
BUEA, CAMEROON — Two towns in Cameroon have installed biogas systems to turn human waste into sustainable energy that can provide fuel and electricity for local communities. The project was initiated by Bioenergy-Cameroon, a non-governmental youth organization. Local students, especially female students, are trained on how to install and maintain innovative technology systems such as solar power and biogas mechanisms. According to Reuters, the system includes a septic tank, which is connected to a bio-digester at individual households. Human waste placed in the septic tank is converted into biogas inside the bio-digesters, which release energy into people’s homes for cooking and lighting. Reuters reports that more than 3,000 households and local schools in the towns of Buea and Bamenda have installed the biogas system. The Center for Environment and Development, an NGO in Cameroon, estimates that the biogas project may reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the vicinity by up to 60 percent. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Wife crushes man’s testicles: Man dies after 5 minutes of ball-crushing agony - TomoNews
 
01:15
TIEN GIANG, VIETNAM — A Vietnamese man died of suffocation after an altercation with his wife during which she reportedly crushed his testicles. On July 10, Le Kim Khai came to the home of his separated wife, 55-year-old Phan Thi Kim Chuong, to find her and one of their two daughters refusing to let him in. Khai found a hand saw and used it to cut open the door lock and break in. Once inside the husband and wife began violently fighting. Khai began punching his wife repeatedly despite his daughter’s pleas for him to stop. Chuong eventually grabbed Khai’s testicles and wrestled him to the floor, climbing and sitting on his stomach. Never loosening her vice grip, Chuong called the police. For five minutes, Chuong crushed the man’s balls until neighbors arrived and convinced her to stop. It was too late; Khai had lost consciousness and when en route to the hospital his face had turned purple. An autopsy revealed food stuck in the man’s windpipe. His official cause of death was suffocation. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Sleeping pods in airports and elsewhere allow you to get some shut eye in public - TomoNews
 
01:38
ABU DHABI — Sleeping pods placed in convenient locations allow people to get some desperately needed shut eye in public. Google may have popularized the concept of having sleeping pods in the workplace, but they're not the only company that uses them. Way back in 2012 with the London Olympics then approaching, one English company anticipated heavy traffic that would affect employees' commutes. So the company built sleeping pods that allowed employees to sleep in the office with privacy, reported Wired Magazine. These sleeping pods included a single mattress, while more advanced models also featured a stereo and a mirror. And now people can also choose to sleep with some privacy (and dignity) at airports instead of sprawling across several seats in front of gawking onlookers. Abu Dhabi International Airport was the first airport in the world to offer sleeping pods in 2013, although the service has since extended to many other airports worldwide — from Dallas-Fort Worth to London Gatwick. Abu Dhabi's GoSleep sleeping pods allow users to lie completely flat. Each pod is able to partly or fully block out sounds in the busy airport, depending on the user's preference. According to the airport's website, later stage pods offer wifi access, power sockets for charging electronic devices and space to store luggage under the cushion. The GoSleep sleeping pods can be rented out for about US $12 an hour — or about the price of three coffees. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Cryonics gives the terminally ill hope of a second chance at life - TomoNews
 
02:25
CLINTON TOWNSHIP, MICHIGAN — A landmark British court ruling that a 14-year-old girl who died of cancer should have her body cryogenically frozen has once again put the spotlight on the controversial process known as cryonics. Britain’s High Court ruled in October that the girl had the right to be cryogenically frozen after her parents disagreed about whether she should undergo the process, the Telegraph reported. Cryonics is a procedure that preserves the human body at low temperatures after death in the hope it can be revived in the future. The process must begin within two minutes of a person being declared legally dead. Although the heart has stopped beating, there is still some brain function during this period, so a heart-lung resuscitator is used to stabilize the body and keep the brain supplied with blood and oxygen. An anticoagulant is injected into the body to stop the blood clotting during transit. The body is then packed in ice and transported to a cryonics facility. Once there, a process called vitrification begins, where the blood is replaced with a cryoprotectant antifreeze fluid. This is done to prevent the cells from freezing and to stop ice crystals from forming around the organs at extremely low temperatures. The body is then placed on a bed of dry ice until it cools to -130 degrees Celsius. Once cooled sufficiently, the body is transferred to an individual container, which is in turn lowered into a larger metal tank that’s filled with liquid nitrogen to keep the temperature at -196 degrees Celsius. Between four and six bodies are typically held in the tanks. Bodies are stored with the heads facing down to ensure the brain stays immersed in freezing liquid even in the event of a leak in the container. Approval to build a cryonics center in Australia was granted in late November. Russia is currently the only country outside the United States to host cryonics facilities. Around 350 people have been cryogenically frozen since the 1960s, including several notable scientists and the baseball legend Ted Williams, according to the Telegraph. However, the technology to revive someone who has been cryogenically frozen does not exist and there is no proof that it ever will. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

ATM skimming: How to spot an ATM skimmer - TomoNews
 
01:35
NEW YORK — This animation explains the practice of automatic teller machine (ATM) skimming, a common form of fraud that involves a compromised ATM that allows criminals to access bank accounts. According a survey published in April 2016, such incidents increased 546% from 2014 to 2015 in the United States. The data came from financial analytics company FICO and FICO Card Alert Service software, which also states that 60% of the incidents took place at non-bank ATMs. ATM skimming usually employs two separate components. First, a fake card reader is fitted onto the ATM’s card slot. It scans and stores the information on the card’s magnetic strip as it slides through. Then, a pinhole camera hidden on or near the ATM records the PIN entered on the keypad. Alternatively, a fake keypad is placed on top of the real one to record the digits entered. To avoid becoming victim to skimming fraud, one must check for any objects mounted on the ATM or near it. Comparing the ATM being used to another nearby can help spot suspicious differences. Examine any mounted parts by pulling them to see whether they are securely attached. Feel the keypad for its sensitivity and check whether it was placed on top of a real one. The research also reports that 60% of incidents took place at non-bank ATMs. You might want to avoid using ATMs in malls, for instance, and stick with those located outside or inside your bank. According to PCMag, one should examine any mounted parts by pulling them to see if they are securely attached. Also, try to feel the keypad for its sensitivity and check if it was placed on top of a real one. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Giant sinkholes near Wink, Texas are expanding, on the verge of catastrophic collapse - TomoNews
 
02:18
WINK, TEXAS — Satellite images show that two massive sinkholes near Wink, Texas are growing, and that more sinkholes are forming nearby, according to geophysicists at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, who reported their findings in the journal Remote Sensing. The sinkholes, named Wink 1 and Wink 2, are located between the small towns of Wink and Kermit in West Texas. The scientists said the sinkholes are unstable and subsiding at an alarming rate. More sinkholes could appear in the future, and they could collapse into one giant sinkhole. A collapse of the sinkholes, because they are near two towns as well as oil and gas facilities, could be catastrophic, the scientists warned. “This area is heavily populated with oil and gas production equipment and installations, hazardous liquid pipelines, as well as two communities. The intrusion of freshwater to underground can dissolve the interbedded salt layers and accelerate the sinkhole collapse,” Jin-Woo Kim, leader of the study and research scientist at Southern Methodist University, said in a statement. Wink 2 is about 3 kilometers from the town of Wink, which has a population of 940 people. Wink 1 is about 6 kilometers from the town of Kermit, which is home to 6,000 people. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Police chase caught on camera: Man videos high-speed police pursuit after cops open fire - TomoNews
 
01:51
BRIDGEPORT, CONNECTICUT— Footage filmed earlier this month from inside a car being chased at high speed by cops is going viral. Video of the incident was posted to social media on Nov. 4 with the hashtag “blacklivesmatter”. The man who filmed it has been identified as Mikhail Salmon, and the driver as Haile Wilson. According to the Connecticut Post, the cops were on the lookout for a guy named Ali who was dealing drugs out of a gray Audi sedan. Salmon and Wilson were allegedly driving a car that matched that description when the chase went down on Nov. 1. Police say they’d tried to stop them when the car suddenly reversed, crashing into an undercover cop’s vehicle. Next, the car is said to have nearly hit a cop in uniform, prompting another officer to open fire. This reportedly made Wilson speed off, and police followed in a high-speed pursuit. The car soon struck several other vehicles and crashed into a tree. Salmon and Wilson tried to flee, but were detained and charged following a short chase on foot, the Connecticut Post reported, citing police. Wilson was charged with reckless driving, engaging police in a pursuit and attempted assault on a police officer. He’s being held on $100,000 bond. His buddy, Salmon, meanwhile, was held on $5,000 bond and charged with interfering with police, but later released. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Middle East water crisis: UAE plans man-made mountain to increase rainfall - TomoNews
 
01:25
ABU DHABI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES — The United Arab Emirates is considering building an artificial mountain to increase rainfall and address the country's water shortages. The International Business Times reports that according to the UAE's Federal Water and Electricity Authority, an average resident uses an estimated 550 liters of water daily — almost two to three times the international average of 170 to 300 liters. The high consumption is especially problematic as water in the region is in very short supply due to the arid climate and naturally low precipitation rates. Arabian Business reports that the government has already turned to artificial weather modification. In 2015, $558,000 was spent on cloud-seeding. In February of the same year, the U.S.-based University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) received $400,000 in funding to produce a development plan for a man-made mountain. UCAR is in the early stages of the project. It is collaborating with the National Center of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) in a modelling study to evaluate the effects building a mountain would have on the weather, and what height, width and location would be best. Mountains force air to rise up into the atmosphere, where it cools and condenses into clouds. The clouds then produce rain or are seeded to stimulate precipitation. But cloud seeding can have undesirable outcomes, such as too much rainfall or none at all. Due to the rain shadow effect, an artificial mountain can inhibit rainfall on one side, causing that area to become more parched, according to Discovery. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Man vs shark: Man survives bull shark attack while spearfishing in the Bahamas - TomoNews
 
01:25
UNDA DA SEA — A Waco, Texas dentist is recovering from a vicious shark attack that took place while he was vacationing in the Bahamas over the weekend. Dr. Steve Cutbirth, 62, was spearfishing with his son-in-law and some local guides when he nabbed a hogfish, he wrote in a Facebook post. However, said fish was also the target of a 6-foot bull shark, which crashed into Cutbirth as he tried to surface. Cutbirth writes that the next thing he saw was the bull shark coming at him, mouth wide open and plenty of teeth showing. But where most would piss themselves, Cutbirth managed to strike the beast on the head. Down but not out, the shark came back for more, this time going for Cutbirth’s leg. Luckily he managed kick it in the head and escape to the surface. To make matters worse, there was no doctor on the island to treat his injuries. But Cutbirth, a man with plentiful surgical experience, guided a local nurse who had never treated a shark bite before through the procedure. He received 30 stitches in total and decided to continue on with his vacation. Cutbirth reckons that blood from a fish his son-in-law speared may have set off the bull shark. He doesn’t blame the shark for the attack, however, telling a local news outlet KWTX News 10 that the shark was just doing what came naturally to it. “The shark was just doing what sharks are supposed to do which is keep the ocean clean by eating dead or injured fish,” Cutbirth said. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Girl, 13, designs smart bandage that tells you when to change, wins Google Science prize
 
01:45
BEAVERTON, OREGON — A smart bandage that detects moisture levels and signals when it needs to be changed has helped a seventh grade student impress the judges at the Google Science Fair. Anushka Naiknaware, 13, is a student at Stoller Middle School in Beaverton, Oregon. Her invention finished in the top eight at the competition, according to the event’s official website. Naiknaware won a $15,000 scholarship and a free trip to Lego headquarters in Denmark, with a year of entrepreneurship mentoring from a Lego executive. The bandage uses biopolymer chitosan with carbon nanoparticles to reduce bleeding and measure moisture levels in the wound. A battery and bluetooth chip sit on top of the bandage and are covered by a regular bandage adhesive layer. When the moisture level is high, the electrons inside the bandage experience less resistance; when the bandage dries up, the electrons detect much higher resistance. The change in resistance is noted and can be wirelessly transmitted to a mobile device, which then prompts the user to change bandages. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Two cave divers die in underwater Florida labyrinth known as ‘Mount Everest of diving’ - TomoNews
 
01:29
WEEKI WACHEE, FLORIDA — Two divers died exploring an underwater cave system in Florida known to be one of the world’s most beautiful, but also most dangerous diving sites. The bodies of Patrick Peacock, 53, and Chris Rittenmeyer, 38, were found by rescue divers in the Eagle’s Nest cave system on Monday, NBC affiliate WFLA reported. Eagle’s Nest is also known as the Lost Sink. Divers access the underwater caves through a pond in the Chassahowitzka Wildlife Refuge. Among divers, the caves are considered the Mount Everest or Grand Canyon of diving sites for their stunning views and extreme depths. The treacherous tunnels contain around a mile of passages, some of them more than 300 feet deep. Peacock and Rittenmeyer explored deep into the caves on Sunday, while a third diver, Justin Blakely, stayed nearer the surface. Blakely raised the alarm when his two friends failed to show up on time at their meeting point. The two dead divers were found in a complex and dangerous part of the cave system, according to deputies. They are the ninth and tenth divers to die at Eagle’s Nest since 1981. Both men were experienced cave divers and had explored the site before. Florida man Chester Spivey, whose son and grandson died at Eagle’s Nest on Christmas Day 2013, renewed calls for the site to be closed in the wake of Peacock and Rittenmeyer’s deaths. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Homeless in LA: Homeless man living in personal paradise in LA freeway underpass - TomoNews
 
01:30
LOS ANGELES — A homeless fella turned his lemons into more than just lemonade, as he transformed a dinky freeway underpass into opulent digs he’s proud to call home. Ceola Waddell, 59, didn’t want to spend his nights in a cardboard box, when he could live nicely like everybody else, the Los Angeles Times reported. Waddell’s underpass crib has all the furnishings: a four-poster bed and couch decked out in animal print, porcelain toilet, a makeshift Jacuzzi, and more. It’s even big enough to fit extras, including a tent that’s rented out to other homeless people for $25 a week. A video tour of the eye-popping accommodation eventually made it to Facebook, where it’s been viewed more than 1.4 million times. As a result, Waddell now has fans who trek to his underpass compound, which he calls Paradise Lane, to get a good look and take photos with him. But not everyone is happy about the lavish crib. City sanitation crews have dismantled the makeshift abode twice. Each time, Waddell scavenged neighborhoods for useful junk and rebuilt his setup. Homelessness remains a growing issue in LA, with numerous encampments around the city. Officials struggle to get people off the streets and into temporary housing, while figuring out a permanent solution for the problem. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

NASA planet discovery: Kepler space telescope finds 1,284 new planets in our galaxy - TomoNews
 
01:49
WASHINGTON — NASA's Kepler mission, launched in 2009 and with two more years to go, has detected 1,284 new exoplanets, including nine worlds that may be able to sustain life. NASA announced on Tuesday that the Kepler Space Telescope, which searches for planets in our Milky Way that lie up to 3,000 light years from Earth, has verified 1,284 new planets. Five hundred and fifty appear to be rocky based on their size. Of these 550, nine are located just far enough from their suns to suggest they may contain water. The latest finding nearly doubles the number of confirmed exoplanets and is the largest number of new planets announced at one time, reported Space. According to NASA's statement, the new findings can be credited to a computer simulation and a new statistical method that takes into account such factors as how many total stars are in our galaxy. The total number of exoplanets discovered now stands at 3,200. A total of 21 of these may be habitable. The Kepler mission shows that with at least 70 billion stars in our galaxy, there may be billions of habitable, Earth-sized planets out there that have yet to be discovered. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Cancer breakthrough: T-cell therapy and cancer vaccine could offer future lasting cure - TomoNews
 
02:15
SEATTLE — Scientists in the U.S. and in Italy are developing a revolutionary cancer therapy that would teach the body to destroy cancer cells on its own, reducing the need for debilitating chemotherapy treatments. The new technique developed by the Cancer Research Center in Seattle, involves removing T-cells from patients, and genetically modify them by adding chimeric antigen receptors, or CARs, from genetically engineered mice. The modified T-cells are then injected back into the patient's body, and are able to target and destroy cancer cells. The therapy is similar to a treatment given last year to British baby Layla Richards, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, a disease in which the bone marrow makes too many immature lymphocytes, Sky News reported. Richards received her treatment at Great Ormond Street Hospital in central London and was left cancer-free. Recent T-cell immunotherapy trials have shown great results also in the U.S. More than 40 patients with different types of blood cancers were treated, and more than half of them were left cancer-free. Among patients with terminal leukemia, 94 percent went into remission. Being in remission, however, still implies the cancer could eventually return. In a second major breakthrough in Italy, researchers at the University of Milan have discovered that memory T-cells can stay in the body for at least 14 years, according to a study published on the San Raffaele Hospital website. This means the cells could be trained to fight cancer as well as to remember the disease in case it comes back, allowing them to defeat it again. The latest discovery gives hope for the development of a vaccine-style drug that could stop cancer from coming back once it has been defeated. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Diego the 100-year-old tortoise mates like crazy, sires 800 babies and saves his species - TomoNews

GALÁPAGOS, ECUADOR — A 100-year-old giant tortoise is being credited for singlehandedly reviving his species from impending extinction. In 1976, Diego, a Chelonoidis hoodensis tortoise, was brought over from the San Diego Zoo to Santa Cruz Island in the Galapagos for a single purpose — repopulate his dwindling species. Along with six females on the island, Diego spent decades copulating, and today his genes can be traced to almost 40% of the current population in the wild. A study conducted by tortoise preservationists found that of the roughly 2000 tortoises on the island, Diego has fathered about 800 babies. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Dumb immigration mistake: Brit uses passport as TOILET PAPER, denied entry into Thailand - TomoNews
 
01:29
THAILAND — A British national says she was denied entry into Thailand last month after making what's probably the dumbest passport-related mistake we've ever heard of. Faye Wilson had been attempting to make her way to the south-east Asian nation from Australia, but was stopped by immigration officials who were curious as to why her passport was missing several pages. The embarrassed 28-year-old hairdresser was refused entry into the country after lying to Thai authorities, telling them she'd "lost" the pages, according to a Daily Mirror report. The real answer: she'd ripped them out herself to use the pages as toilet paper.Wilson says that during a drunken night out a few years back, she found herself lacking the stuff so she reached for the only paper she had at the time, that is, the paper attached to her passport. Ripping out two or three may have saved her from undue embarrassment that night, but it caused some serious problems down the road. Thai immigration officials sent her packing back to the UK via Dubai, presumably at some serious expense. The 28-year-old was eventually able to make her way back to Thailand to reunite with the friend she'd abruptly left behind, but she's no doubt learned one serious lesson. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Kickboxing gone wrong: Man’s leg bends wrong way during Muay Thai training session - TomoNews
 
01:03
TORONTO — Video footage of a kickboxing demonstration shows a man’s leg bending in the wrong direction after a kick from the instructor pops his knee out of joint. The video was reportedly taken in 2012 but was only recently uploaded to YouTube. The video, supposedly taken at a Muay Thai class, show two men at a practice session when the teacher delivers a low kick on a student during a training session. However, the demonstration goes terribly wrong when this causes the student’s knee to pop out of joint, forcing his lower leg to bend in the wrong direction. The student is clearly in pain as he tries to sit down, but is unable to because of his awkwardly bent leg beneath him. Instead of cries of horror, people behind the camera can be heard laughing as the teacher quickly positions himself on the other side of the student to deliver another swift kick that pops the student’s leg back into place. Surprisingly, the student seems to think the entire ordeal is pretty funny too and is seen in the video laughing along with the rest of the bystanders. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

European Space Agency’s Rosetta probe locates and photographs missing Philae lander - TomoNews
 
01:43
COMET 67P — Less than one month before the end of its mission, the Rosetta probe has made a yet another discovery: the location of its sister, the Philae comet lander. Rosetta has had quite the time in space. The probe has been surveying Comet 67P — also known as Churyumov-Gerasimenko. In 2011, Rosetta was placed in hibernation mode for 31 months to conserve energy and traveled to the most distant part of its journey. In November 2014, it released Philae, which landed on the comet, the first time a spacecraft has ever done so. However, Philae bounced during its landing and was only in operation for a short time before it powered down. Experts have unable to locate the lander since. Currently, Rosetta is nearing the orbit of Jupiter, which means it’s running short on solar power and bandwidth required to downlink necessary data. At the moment, the probe is gathering as much data about the comet as possible. It recently found the amino acid glycine, a crucial building block of life, in the dust surrounding the comet. And in about a month’s time, Rosetta will crash into the comet, ending its mission. Before doing so, Rosetta has given researchers one last gift. The probe captured images of the Philae lander, or at least, what’s left of it, on its high-resolution camera. Images showed the lander with two of its three legs, trapped in a dark crack on the comet where it was unable to absorb sunlight and recharge. This explains why the lander powered down after only three days of activity. After going into hibernation, the lander powered up again and attempted communication with the ESA in June and July 2015 when the comet came closer to the sun. It’s a bittersweet discovery, but at least Philae’s fate will no longer be a mystery. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Scientists convert carbon dioxide into rock in breakthrough climate change experiment - TomoNews
 
01:18
HENGILL, ICELAND — Researchers are hailing a potential game-changer for climate change after successfully converting carbon to rock at a geothermal power plant in Iceland. The project could help to reduce global warming by burying the waste CO2 produced from burning fossil fuels, the Guardian reported. Scientists at the Hellisheidi geothermal power plant converted carbon dioxide into the volcanic rock basalt, according to a study published in the journal Science. The researchers pumped 230 tons of CO2 into rock 500 meters underground, dissolving the gas in water to prevent it from escaping. More than 95 percent of the gas turned to stone within two years, speeding up a natural process that takes hundreds or thousands of years, the Guardian reported. A potential problem for the technique is that it requires 25 tons of water for every ton of buried CO2. However, researchers said seawater can be used, which is abundant at coastal sites, the Guardian reported. The project is seen as an improvement on existing carbon capture and storage methods that store CO2 as a gas, causing concern about potential leaks. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Two-headed sharks are surfacing all over the world, and scientists aren’t sure why - TomoNews
 
01:39
MÁLAGA, SPAIN — Scientists from Spain have discovered an Atlantic sawtail catshark embryo with two heads, a threatened shark species found only in the western Mediterranean. Their findings were recently published in the Journal of Fish Biology, leading the scientific community to wonder what may be causing these abnormalities. In 2013, fishermen working off the Florida Keys caught a pregnant bull shark, and when they cut her open, they were stunned to find two unborn offspring, one of whom was a mutant. The fetus was the first two-headed bull shark on record. Most cases of the two-headed sharks are conceived by blue sharks, as they can have up to 50 babies at one time. Scientists aren’t exactly sure what’s causing the bizarre birth defect, but theorize overfishing in some regions could be shrinking gene pools, leading to such physical abnormalities. Human pollution of the oceans may also play a role in these mutations. Shark researchers say most of these misfit creatures don’t survive long after birth, and rarely even defy the odds to make it out of the womb. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Racism at Chili’s: Black veteran has free meal revoked after Trump supporter complaint - TomoNews
 
03:05
CEDAR HILL, TEXAS — A military veteran taking advantage of a complimentary meal at a Chili’s in North Texas had his food taken away after his service was called into question by a fellow customer. Ernest Walker proudly served in 25th Infantry of the U.S. Army, Division Tropic Lightning. On November 11, the army vet was waiting for his food with his service dog, Barack. The restaurant offers all active service members and veterans a free meal on Veterans Day as a thank you. The meal took half an hour to be served, and as Walker had to go, he asked the waitress to put it in a to-go box for him. As he was waiting for his doggy bag, he says an elderly man wearing a Trump t-shirt walked over and questioned him about his time in the military. The man, who himself claimed to be a World War 2 vet serving in Germany, didn’t believe Walker was actually a veteran. A few minutes later, the manager came over and told Walker another guest said he wasn’t a veteran because he was wearing his hat indoors. After providing his discharge papers and his military ID, the manager then told him the guest also said his dog was not a service dog. That’s when Walker started recording the incident on his smartphone. After arguing for the duration of the video, the manager took Walker’s to-go box away and told him to “have a great day.” Following the unfortunate exchange, Walker posted the video to Facebook, and the story has since gotten back to Chili’s, who have responded saying the situation has been escalated to the highest levels of the company. So far, Walker hasn’t yet been contacted by anyone at Chili’s or its ownership group, but the two sides are expected to meet this week. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Quebec prison break 2013: video capturing moments of prison escape released - TomoNews
 
02:10
QUEBEC, CANADA — A video showing two inmates escaping a Quebec prison by helicopter in 2013 has been released earlier this week. The video was filmed by prison guards, when two inmates, Benjamin Hudon-Barbeau and Danny Provencal, escaped from Saint-Jérôme detention centre near Montreal. In the video, the two inmates seem to be having troubles climbing onto the roof. The chopper then lifts off with the two escapees dangling from the rope and eventually carries them outside the prison. Hudon-Barbeau and Provencal co-ordinated their escape with two accomplices via text messages on smuggled cellphones in the prison. The accomplices hijacked a helicopter and forced its pilot to land on the roof of the prison at gunpoint. The four suspects then forced the pilot to land in a parking lot roughly 40 km from the prison before boarding a getaway car. Hours later, the four were arrested in the town of Chertsey. The pilot was found unharmed. In response to why the prison guards had failed to stop the inmates from escaping, the union that represents the prison guards says they did not have guns to confront the armed accomplices, therefore they had no option but to watch the inmates leaving. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

South China Sea dispute: Vietnam begins dredging on Ladd Reef in disputed waters - TomoNews
 
01:32
LADD REEF, SOUTH CHINA SEA — Satellite images taken by a U.S. based firm revealed suspected dredging work on Ladd Reef, a coral reef controlled by Vietnam in the South China Sea. Ladd Reef is about 450 km from Vietnam’s southeastern coast and is completely submerged at high tide. It has a 42-meter-tall lighthouse, which is operated by a small number of Vietnam soldiers and worker. Analysts told Reuters that such dredging work could be the precursor to more extensive construction on other reefs, and Ladd Reef might be used to boost access for supply ships and fishing boats. It could also help defend the nearby Spratly Islands, where Vietnam has expanded its airstrip. Vietnam is one of the many nations that claims the South China Sea as part of its territory. China, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan have also made claims in the region. Vietnam has become China’s main rival in the disputed South China Sea. According to Reuters, the mobile rocket launchers installed on several islands controlled by Vietnam are capable of striking China’s runway and military installations. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Affordable housing? ByFusion turns waste plastic into RePlast bricks to make cheap homes - TomoNews
 
01:12
NEW YORK — A New York startup has developed an innovative way to recycle waste plastic, converting it into an alternative building material that can be used to build affordable housing. The company, called ByFusion, has designed a machine that is highly compact and modular. It can be powered by propane gas or electricity and can process all types of plastic waste, according to the ByFusion website. The plastic waste does not have to be pre-processed. Instead, it is shredded inside the machine before it’s made into a new material called RePlast and compressed into bricks. The RePlast bricks are not as strong as concrete, so are reinforced with steel rods, wire and layers of mortar. The company said RePlast has been used in projects including retaining walls in New Zealand and California, which have withstood environmental tests such as earthquakes. ByFusion has so far raised around $30,000 of a $250,000 target on Indiegogo. On its campaign page, it says the machine will likely be available in the U.S. by May next year. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Tesla Model X: Driver suffers pulmonary embolism saved by autopilot function - TomoNews
 
01:17
BRANSON, MISSOURI — A Tesla Model X driver who suffered a pulmonary embolism was saved by the vehicle’s autopilot function when it took him to the hospital in time for treatment. Tesla Model X owner Joshua Neally was driving from Springfield, Missouri to Branson on Tuesday afternoon for his 4-year-old daughter’s birthday when he experienced a stabbing pain in his chest caused by pulmonary embolism, local NBC affiliate KY3 reported. Suffering what he told KY3 was “excruciating” pain, the 37-year-old attorney activated his car’s autopilot system and let the vehicle drive him to a nearby hospital for treatment. He then parked the vehicle himself in the parking lot and checked in to the emergency room, Neally told Slate. Neally was promptly treated by the medical staff and was able to return home later evening. The news comes at a good time for Tesla, after its autopilot function led to two recent crashes. In May, a Tesla driver in Florida died when neither he nor the car’s autopilot was able to detect a truck in its path. And last month, a Tesla Model X driving on autopilot swerved and hit wooden rails on a road in Montana. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Ring of Fire: Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions around the Pacific explained - TomoNews
 
01:43
QUITO, ECUADOR — Hundreds were killed and more injured when earthquakes hit Japan on Thursday and Saturday morning and Ecuador on Saturday night. Despite occurring only 32 hours apart, experts believe the two are not related. The only commonality is that both are located in the seismically active Ring of Fire, reports Reuters. The Ring of Fire is a horseshoe-shaped arc around the Pacific Ocean that extends from South America all the way to New Zealand. At about 25,000 miles long, its most visible features are the volcanoes that dot the coast and make up roughly 75 percent of all active volcanoes on earth, according to National Geographic. Throughout history, cataclysmic eruptions have occurred in this area, as well as 90 percent of the world's earthquakes. According to National Geographic, both are caused by the movement of tectonic plates — huge slabs of the earth's crust. When plates slide horizontally past each other, some parts get stuck. Built-up stress in those areas eventually cause the rock to break or slip, and the plates to lurch forward, causing earthquakes. Plates that collide form convergent plate boundaries, which give rise to volcanoes through subduction. Those that pull apart form divergent boundaries, which become the site for seafloor spreading and rift valleys. A less-powerful quake in Tonga also occurred Sunday. It, too, is believed to be unrelated to those in Ecuador and Japan, reports SBS. Despite this, an increase in global seismic activity in recent years is still cause for concern. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Tornado kills mom: Couple was chatting on Facetime as tornado kills wife - TomoNews
 
01:42
MESQUITE, TEXAS — A Texas couple were chatting on Facetime when a tornado struck, killing Petra Ruiz Porras, a 27-year-old mother of four. At least seven motorists were killed near Garland, Texas on Saturday night, December 26, 2015 after a tornado packing winds of up to 200 miles an hour ripped up roads and overturned vehicles. Petra's husband Ruben Porras had surprised his wife on Christmas Day with a gift: a booking for a solo trip to a hair salon for some R&R. Driving back to their home in Mesquite after the appointment the following day, Petra turned on Facetime and started chatting with Ruben about dinner and family stuff. Suddenly, Ruben heard Petra begin screaming. He watched as the screen got fuzzy and then went black. Using a locater app, Ruben identified the spot where his wife's phone signal had come from and a friend drove him to the site. Blocked roads forced Ruben to run the last mile, past trees torn to shreds and cars flipped over like toys. He says he was just hoping she was still alive. When he arrived at his wife's crushed, overturned vehicle, his hopes were shattered. Petra Ruiz Porras, a mother, wife and Ruben's best friend was dead. He leaned in and held her hand one last time. Hours later, Porras sat down with his four kids — aged 2 through 9 — and told them their mother wasn't coming home. Ruben says he believes Petra's passing was swift and knows she's now watching over them from above. A GoFundMe page for the family has since raised over US$36,000. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.
