Vacationing schoolteacher finds 2.12-carat brown diamond at Arkansas State Park

A vacationing schoolteacher recently found a 2.12-carat brown diamond at the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas.

Josh Lanik, a 36-year-old teacher from Hebron, Neb., found the diamond after just two hours of searching on July 24, according to Arkansas State Parks.

The Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro, Ark., lets visitors search for real diamonds in their original volcanic source. “Any rock or mineral you find is yours to keep,” the park explains on its website.

BOY, 12, UNEARTHS 5.16-CARAT DIAMOND AT ARKANSAS STATE PARK

“We took the kids to look for amethyst on Canary Hill, and I was walking through an area where it looked like a lot of water had washed when I saw it,” Lanik explained, in a statement released by Arkansas State Parks. “It was blatantly obvious there was something different about it. I saw the shine, and when I picked it up and rolled it in my hand, I noticed there weren’t any sharp edges.“

After Lanik took his find to the park’s Diamond Discovery Center, staff confirmed that his gem was the largest found at the site this year. Some 296 diamonds have been registered at the park this year, weighing a total of 53.94 carats. Diamonds weighing at least one carat have accounted for 11 of the gems found.

Record-breaking rainfall likely played a part in Lanik’s stunning find. “About 14 inches of rain fell at the park on July 16. In the days after the rainfall, park staff registered numerous diamonds found right on the surface of the search area, including two weighing over one carat,” said Park Interpreter Waymon Cox in the statement. “Mr. Lanik’s gem is about the size of a jellybean and has a dark brown color, similar to brandy. It has a beautiful natural pear shape and smooth, curved facets that give the gem a metallic shine.”

WORLD’S LONGEST SALT CAVE DISCOVERED IN ISRAEL AND IS STILL ‘GROWING,’ SCIENTISTS SAY

Lanik said that he plans to keep the gem, for now, and has named his find the Lanik Family Diamond.

In 2013 a 12-year-old boy unearthed a 5.16-carat diamond at Crater of Diamonds State Park.

The largest diamond ever discovered in the United States was unearthed at the site in 1924 and weighed 40.23 carats. The gem was dubbed “Uncle Sam.”

An explosion and fire at an ExxonMobil oil refinery outside of Houston Wednesday has left at least six people injured, reports say.

A unit containing polypropylene material ⁠— a noncarcinogenic plastic ⁠— burst into flames late Wednesday morning at the ExxonMobil Baytown Olefins plant, sending parts of the city into a mandatory shelter-in-place, according to Fox 26. The flames and black smoke from the fire could be seen for miles.

“Our first priority remains the safety of people, including our employees, contractors and the community,” ExxonMobil Baytown Area said in a statement. “As a precaution, our industrial hygiene staff is conducting air quality monitoring at the site and at the fence line, and we are cooperating with regulatory agencies.”

At least two school districts in the area that didn’t fall within the shelter-in-place order for Baytown are also implementing shelter-in-place precautions for their summer activities, according to Fox 26.

Some workers have begun returning to the plant’s entrance after evacuating and ExxonMobil will hold a press conference about the incident at 2:30 p.m. ET.

Church of purity advocate who renounced Christianity responds: Pray for ‘redemptive end’

The Maryland megachurch where author Joshua Harris once pastored responded to his announcement that shocked many conservative Christians across the nation.

Harris, the author of “I Kissed Dating Goodbye” and other books that helped shape purity culture for many millennial believers, announced on Instagram his split from his wife, of which they have three kids, and later, his faith.

KANYE WEST TOLD NICKI MINAJ HE’S NOW A ‘BORN-AGAIN CHRISTIAN’

“By all the measurements that I have for defining a Christian,” wrote Harris, who pastored Covenant Life Church from 2004 to 2015. “I am not a Christian.”

Harris discontinued his books on purity, renounced what it said, and apologized to the “LGBTQ+ community” for “standing against marriage equality, for not affirming you and your place in the church, and for any ways that my writing and speaking contributed to a culture of exclusion and bigotry. I hope you can forgive me.”

PETE BUTTIGIEG USES BIBLE VERSE TO SLAM ‘SO-CALLED CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN’ REPUBLICANS DURING DEBATE

Kevin Rogers, the interim senior pastor of Covenant Life Church in Gaithersburg, wrote a letter to the congregation that was obtained by investigative journalist Julie Roys, saying the news was “hard to hear” for many in the church.

MORE ON FAITH

“For most of us, Josh isn’t just some distant public figure,” Rogers wrote. “He’s a beloved former pastor and friend. So this news isn’t just a lot to process theoretically. It hits home personally.”

He urged the church to “pray with sincere hope for a redemptive end.”

Lawyer for British woman who made false rape claim suggests she is a victim of a ‘more serious’ crime

A lawyer for a 19-year-old British woman arrested for falsely claiming a dozen Israeli teens gang-raped her in Cyprus has suggested his client is a victim of a “more serious” crime.

Andreas Pittadjis, the unnamed woman’s lawyer, leveled criticism at a video posted online purportedly showing his client having sex with several young men at a popular resort earlier this month.

He called the leaked video “a much more serious criminal offense” than the public nuisance charge his client faces when speaking to reporters outside a Cypriot courthouse Tuesday.

”These 12 boys are being treated as heroes but the Internet is now flooded with images and texts of this young lady,” Pittadjis told The Sun.

The state-run Cyprus News Agency reported that the woman allegedly told investigators she filed a rape report because she was “angry and insulted” that a number of the Israelis allegedly recorded video of her having sex with some of them.

The woman later voluntarily recanted her rape allegation, police said. The Israeli teens, initially arrested on July 18 following the woman’s claim, had all been released from custody by Sunday.

Pittadjis said his client will “most likely” enter a plea to the charge at her next court appearance on Aug. 7, but wouldn’t say how she would plead. The charge carries a maximum sentence of a year in prison and a $1,890 fine.

His client has consented to remain in police detention until then, he said.

4 Brazilian inmates purportedly involved in deadly prison riots die during transport to safer lockup

Brazilian authorities investigating the deadly jail riot between prison gangs that left 58 dead on Monday said that four other inmates believed to have been involved in the clashes have died while being transported to a different location.

The Para state public security office said the four inmates were discovered when the prison vehicle they were traveling in arrived in the town of Maraba on Wednesday. They said all four died of asphyxiation.

Authorities said the four inmates – who were believed to be from the same gang – were among 46 who were being sent to safer lockups, including stricter federal ones. The vehicle had four compartments and was carrying 30 handcuff inmates.

State officials said clashes erupted in Altamira early Monday when the local Comando Classe A gang attacked a wing of the prison holding members of the rival Comando Vermelho, or Red Command. Comando Classe A members allegedly set fire to temporary cells where inmates belonging to Red Command were being held while construction of another wing was underway – most of the victims died of asphyxiation.

BRAZIL RIOT INMATES CELEBRATED BY KICKING SEVERED HEADS OF VICTIMS: REPORT

“This is clearly a declaration of war on the Red Command,” said Jean-François Deluchey, a political science professor at the Federal University of Para who specializes in the region.

Authorities have not yet revealed the exact motive for the clash, only confirming that it was a fight between criminal groups. However, several recent prison massacres have been attributed to gangs battling to control drug-trafficking routes in the multibillion-dollar Amazon drug trade.

Many of Brazil’s prisons are plagued with overpopulation as outnumbered guards struggle to maintain control over an ever-growing population of inmates; jailed gang leaders are often able to run their criminal activities from behind bars.

At Altamira, a local judge revealed in a July report that he had counted 343 detainees in a facility authorized for a maximum 163 people.

Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli’s daughters kicked out of USC sorority following college scam allegations

Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli‘s daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella have been removed from their sorority at the University of Southern California (USC) following the college admissions scandal, a new report claims.

A source told Us Weekly, “Olivia and Bella were both in Kappa Kappa Gamma and the sorority has since kicked them out and is trying to distance themselves from the situation as much as possible.”

The insider added that Olivia Jade, 19, and Isabella, 20, are taking things“day by day. This has strengthened their bond more than anything possibly could.”

LORI LOUGHLIN, MOSSIMO GIANNULLI COULD FACE COURT BATTLE WITH USC OVER COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL, SAYS REPORT

Fox News previously reached out to Kappa Kappa Gamma and did not receive a comment on the girls’ expulsion from the group.

Loughlin, 55, and Giannulli, 56, were accused of paying $500,000 worth in bribes $500,000 in bribes to admissions scammer William “Rick” Singer to get their daughters recruited for USC’s crew team.

Neither Isabella nor Olivia were ever rowers in high school.

LORI LOUGHLIN REPORTEDLY TERRIFIED DAUGHTERS MAY HAVE TO TESTIFY IN COURT

The former “Fuller House” star and her fashion designer husband rejected the plea deal that other parents allegedly involved in the case — including Felicity Huffman — accepted, reportedly because it included jail time. They were subsequently slapped with additional charges of money laundering and conspiracy and each face up to a total of 40 years in prison if convicted of all counts.

Olivia Jade and Isabella’s enrollment statuses at the college were put on hold amid an internal investigation into the bribery charges. A recent report claimed Olivia Jade wanted to go back to USC, despite initially not wanting to go to college at all.

COULD OLIVIA JADE BE IMPLICATED IN LORI LOUGHLIN AND MOSSIMO GIANNULLI’S ALLEGED COLLEGE SCAM?

The scandal hasn’t been easy on the girls, especially Olivia, the source said, explaining, “Olivia’s world came crashing down quicker in terms of getting dumped and losing all of her business, but this all unfolded slower for Bella and it’s been more emotionally devastating.”

Indeed, the beauty vlogger lost several endorsement deals after her parents’ arrests and has reportedly complained that Loughlin and Giannulli “ruined her life.”

‘Queer Eye’ star Karamo Brown ‘disappointed’ in Mario Lopez over comments about transgender children

Westlake Legal Group KaramoLopez1 'Queer Eye' star Karamo Brown 'disappointed' in Mario Lopez over comments about transgender children Tyler McCarthy fox-news/us/education/parents fox-news/entertainment/genres/viral fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article a63533d4-b373-582e-a504-f567af573f34

Queer Eye” star Karamo Brown joined the chorus of people criticizing Mario Lopez over comments he made about parents who allow their children to choose their gender identity at an early age.

Lopez appeared on an episode of “The Candace Owens Show” in June where he and the host were highly critical of parents like Charlize Theron, who recently revealed that she’s raising her seven-year-old adopted child as a girl based on her request. Owens described raising transgender children as a “weird trend” and “scary,” to which Lopez agreed calling it “dangerous” and “alarming.”

Brown, who acts as the culture expert on Netflix’s revival of “Queer Eye,” took to Twitter to try and open a dialogue with Lopez about his comments.

MARIO LOPEZ AND TIFFANI THIESSEN REVEAL THEIR CHILDREN’S REACTION TO ‘SAVED BY THE BELL’

“I’m disappointed to read @MarioLopezExtra comments about parent’s who support their child’s openes [sic] about their gender identity. As a social worker I am trained to identify abuse or neglect of a child. Healthy & safe dialogue w/ kids is neither abusive, neglectful or “dangerous,” he wrote.

The star sent a follow-up tweet noting that he doesn’t think Lopez’s comments should be a career-ender.

“I don’t think @MarioLopezExtra should be ‘canceled’. But I do believe he should be given the opportunity to learn why his comments are harmful to trans youth and their parents. Mario, I’m ready to talk when you are.”

During his interview, the star was asked by Owens about the “trend” of transgender children, specifically in Hollywood.

“Even though I’m not a parent, I nannied for five years of my life and the things that come out of children’s mouths – they say whatever in the moment, you don’t know what they’ve seen on TV what got in their head,” Owens said. “’I’ve had children say they were mermaids, I’ve had children say they could fly – and jump off a staircase and thank God I caught him, right, cause he thought he could be Superman.”

She continued: “I am trying to understand this new Hollywood mentality where they just think their children now have the mental authority.”

‘QUEER EYE’ ALUM CARSON KRESSLEY MAKES SUBTLE DIG AT NETFLIX REBOOT

Lopez agreed, nothing that he’s still trying to understand it and asked her not to “lump me into that whole [group].”

“My God, if you’re 3 years old and you’re saying you’re feeling a certain way, and think you’re a boy or a girl or whatever the case may be… I think it’s dangerous, as a parent, to make that determination. Then it’s, ‘OK, well then you’re going to be a boy or girl.’ whatever the case may be,” Lopez said. “It’s sort of alarming. My gosh, I just think of the repercussions later on.”

Lopez concluded by saying that he feels a child’s “formative years” are a more appropriate time to have conversations about gender identity.

Sen. Kennedy skeptical about moderates at Dem debate: ‘The lesser of two socialists is still a socialist’

Louisiana Republican Senator John Kennedy said Wednesday that he views all of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates as being socialist, expressing skepticism about the so-called moderates who are running.

“I’m not buying this storyline of progressives versus moderates. I would remind you the lesser of two socialists is still a socialist,” Kennedy told “America’s Newsroom,” responding to some of the contentious moments at Tuesday night’s debate.

“What I heard last night, even from the so-called less liberal candidates, and I’m not impugning their integrity, but … I heard a job-killing, soul-crushing, socialist agenda. The only thing missing was the Cuban national anthem,” he said.

SECOND 2020 DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY DEBATE — NIGHT 1 LIVE BLOG

Kennedy said he’s not hearing new ideas from the party ahead of the 2020 clash with President Trump.

“Same old stuff: Socialism, illegal immigration, abortion, socialized medicine are moral goods. Free enterprise, border security, the sanctity of life, your on-the-job health insurance; those are all moral bads,” he said.

“At the rate, my Democratic friends are going, the American people are going to have a very stark choice beyond this election. It’s going to be growth versus redistribution. It’s going to do you believe in more freedom or more free stuff.”

Trump’s campaign claimed victory on Tuesday after the debate, claiming the leading 2020 candidates were pushing a “socialist message.”

Trump’s campaign published a statement: “Same radical Democrats, Same big government socialist message. Same winner of tonight’s debate: President Donald Trump.”

“My Democratic friends want to pay for that free stuff out of your bank account,” Kennedy concluded.

Barcelona Burger King’s ban on facial hair violates employees’ constitutional rights, labor union says

Burger King employees in Barcelona will finally be able to grow the beard of their dreams – if they so choose – after Catalan authorities ruled that the fast-food company’s prohibition on facial hair violated employees’ constitutional rights.

Catalonia’s labor inspection committee also ruled that the eatery’s guidelines on male and female dress, specifically that male employees wear ties and female employees wear ribbons, extended to sexual discrimination.

“As a result of the inspection, it has been established that certain company practices laid out in the internal rules infringe the constitutional rights of workers, namely, the right to one’s own image and the right to equal treatment and against sexual discrimination as set out, respectively, in articles 18.1 and 14 of the Spanish constitution,” labor inspectors stated in their ruling, according to the Guardian.

The Workers’ Commissions union in Barcelona was asked to investigate the situation after the local Burger King branches refused to change its ban on facial hair. Nearly 1,270 people are employed in 46 Burger King restaurants across Barcelona, and all have been subjugated to the same internal guidelines.

In its decision, the workers’ union said that other “more moderate measures, which do not damage fundamental rights” could be proposed, such as mandatory beard net use for those with facial hair.

“Burger King’s internal rules – which are pretty reasonable – oblige workers to come to work in a well-dressed, decent and hygienic state,” Carles Català of Catalonia’s Workers’ Commissions told the Guardian. “That’s as it should be. But they also oblige me to shave off my beard for food preparation reasons? I found that very odd. So we put in the hands of the labor inspectors, who have pointed out that there are already measures available.”

Although the rulings will only take effect in the Barcelona area, the union hopes to see it spread across the country.

“We want this to be applied to all Burger King workers; not just those in Barcelona, where we have union representation,” Català said. “For us, it’s an important first step and we’re very keen to try to negotiate things with the company.”
