Romania’s interior minister quits in furor over inept police response to girl’s kidnapping

Romania’s interior minister resigned Tuesday after it took 19 hours to find a 15-year-old girl who reported her own kidnapping to police three times and then was killed.

Alexandra Macesanu’s rape and murder has sparked outrage in the country over the bumbling police response to her 911 calls.

Minister Nicolae Moga, appointed just six days ago, resigned only days after firing Romania’s top cop.

“I have made the decision to resign to save part of the ministry’s prestige which has been strongly impacted by the deficient activity of some if its employees, who were either fired or are about to be sanctioned,” Moga said according to Reuters.

Clean energy? Researchers develop technology to harness power from freshwater and seawater

Researchers have developed a cheap technology that could become a major source of renewable energy in the future.

Stanford University scientists have tested a prototype of a battery that could tap into the mix of salty seawater and freshwater — known as “blue energy” — at wastewater treatments plants. Globally, according to the scholars, the recoverable energy from coastal wastewater treatment plants is about 18 gigawatts, which would be enough to power 1,700 homes for a full year.

“Blue energy is an immense and untapped source of renewable energy,” said study coauthor Kristian Dubrawski, a postdoctoral scholar in civil and environmental engineering at Stanford, in a statement. “Our battery is a major step toward practically capturing that energy without membranes, moving parts or energy input.”

HACKERS COULD GRIDLOCK ENTIRE CITIES USING CONNECTED CARS, RESEARCHERS SAY

As the researchers explain in their paper, they monitored the battery prototype’s energy production while flushing it with wastewater effluent from the Palo Alto Regional Water Quality Control Plant and seawater collected nearby from Half Moon Bay. The battery materials maintained 97 percent effectiveness in capturing the salinity gradient energy, according to Stanford University.

Wastewater treatment plants are known to be energy-intensive and vulnerable to power grid shutdowns which have happened in California amid its wildfire crisis; however, as the researchers note, making them energy independent would cut down on emissions and free them from potential blackouts.

According to the researchers, the process of capturing “blue energy” releases sodium and chloride ions from the battery’s electrodes into the solution, making a current flow from one electrode to another; after that, a quick exchange of wastewater effluent with seawater leads the electrode to reincorporate sodium and chloride ions and reverse the current flow.

Energy gets recovered during the freshwater and seawater flushes, with no upfront investment or charging required. However, the researchers cautioned that the concept needs to be tested more.

“It is a scientifically elegant solution to a complex problem,” Dubrawski said. “It needs to be tested at scale, and it doesn’t address the challenge of tapping blue energy at the global scale – rivers running into the ocean – but it is a good starting point that could spur these advances.”

‘The Bachelorette’ Hannah B. hints that she may be single now

The Bachelorette” may have never gotten a ring after her final rose.

On Monday’s first half of the season finale, Hannah Brown told the audience, “Since that last day in Greece, the past couple of months have been really tough and emotional. I know there are a lot of rumors out there, and honestly, tomorrow night, I don’t know what’s gonna happen. But I have a lot of questions that need to be answered, so hope I’ll be able to do that.”

JED WYATT’S EX SAYS SHE ‘LOST IT’ WHEN HE WENT ON SOLO DATE IN BOSTON ON ‘BACHELORETTE’

In a preview for Tuesday’s episode, Brown, 24, appears to have a meltdown on her way to the final rose ceremony.

“I can’t do this,” she says. She asks her limo driver to pull over and she stumbles while walking. “I just feel like this experience has been taken away from me.”

She’s then heard speaking to someone unidentified in the clip, saying, “How would you ever be ready to be engaged? I mean, I’ve been, like, doing all the freaking steps and I knew what I wanted.”

It’s unclear who Brown is speaking to, but it’s speculated that it may be Jed Wyatt, who was accused of having a girlfriend when he left to film the ABC hit.

Nashville native Wyatt came under fire last month when his ex-girlfriend Haley Stevens told press that he “ghosted” her and only appeared on “The Bachelorette” to further his music career. He didn’t mention Stevens or her allegations in his missive.

“He told me [early on] that he had applied. He said, ‘It’s probably not going to happen, but it’s a huge opportunity. I’m only doing this for my music.’ He only did it for his career,” Stevens claimed, adding the two were past the “I love you” stage of their relationship.

She said Wyatt told her he just wanted to make it to Hannah Brown’s top five.

“He called me when he landed in L.A. He said, ‘I love you, and I’ll call you when I get back,'” she recalled.

‘Top Gun’ star Tom Skerritt teases the return of ‘Viper’ in upcoming sequel

Top Gun” star Tom Skerritt opened up about his experience on the first film as well as whether or not fans can expect his character to return in the upcoming sequel.

Skerritt, who appeared in films like “Alien,” M*A*S*H“ and “Steel Magnolias,” sat down for an interview with Australia’s “The Morning Show” where he discussed his experience working with Tom Cruise and whether he had any idea at the time that the film would be the enduring hit it remains today.

TOM CRUISE’S ‘TOP GUN: MAVERICK’ MOVIE TRAILER DROPS: 4 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT THE SEQUEL

“’I knew it would be very successful. I had had previous experiences with films, going back to ‘M*A*S*H,’ and particularly, I had some idea what Tony Scott would be doing as a director,” he explained. “And bringing in Tom [Cruise] was a perfect choice, so I had every reason to think this was going to be a classic.”

Cruise recently surprised fans at San Diego Comic-Con by revealing the first trailer for “Top Gun: Maverick,” which will catch up with his character several years after the events of the first film. As for whether or not Skerritt’s tough-but-fair flight instructor Mike “Viper” Metcalf will be making an appearance, the actor remained tight-lipped.

“’I can’t tell you anything about it, but there’s a trailer out that is going to bring in a lot of ticket sales,” the actor told the hosts. “It’s almost a virtual reality experience to watch the trailer. They’re not talking much about it. As Tom Cruise likes to say, ‘If I have to tell you, I’ll kill you!’”

KELLY MCGILLIS SAYS SHE WASN’T ASKED TO RETURN FOR ‘TOP GUN: MAVERICK’

In the new trailer, it’s revealed that Cruise’s iconic character, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, will serve as the new flight instructor of the Top Gun school, and is seen wearing his famous Ray-Ban sunglasses, as he faces off against a new enemy — drones.

The movie will also feature original star Val Kilmer, who will reprise his role of Tom “Iceman” Kazansky, now a commander at the school.

Aside from Cruise and Kilmer, the “Top Gun” sequel will star newcomer Miles Teller, who is set to play the now-grown son of “Goose” in the original film, as well as Jon Hamm, Ed Harris, Jennifer Connelly and Manny Jacinto.

Gun purchases in New York will now take longer, after gov signs new law

A new law in New York extends the waiting period for certain gun purchases from three days to 30 days.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the law Monday and it takes effect in September.

Under existing federal law, gun dealers must wait three days before completing a sale if someone is not instantly approved by the federal National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

The sale could proceed even if the background check was not finished.

Cuomo and Democratic lawmakers said the extended background check will give law enforcement the time it needs to complete a thorough investigation, Syracuse.com reported.

“Stronger background checks will help keep guns away from dangerous people,” said Sen Michael Ginaris, D-Queens, Senate sponsor of the bill.

Tom King, president of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, said the new law isn’t necessary. The three-day waiting period worked well, he said, and lawmakers extended for reasons that were largely political.

“This is just feel-good legislation,” he said. “This is something that the governor and the politicians are saying will make you safer. That’s hogwash.”

Cuomo also signed a bill banning bump stocks. A federal bump stock ban took effect in March.

Missouri man finds infant’s mummified body in dead mom’s freezer decades after mistaking box for wedding cake

A Missouri man cleaning out the freezer of his recently deceased mother made a grisly discovery Saturday night when he found the mummified body of an infant — who he believes might be his sister — in a box that for decades he thought held a wedding cake.

Adam Smith, 37, moved into his mother’s apartment in the 6000 block of Magnolia, St. Louis to care for her shortly after she was diagnosed with cancer and, after her death last week, he decided to clean out the residence she called home for years.

Smith was going through the freezer when he found a box that he had seen sitting in the unit for decades — a box his mother always told him not to touch, FOX2 reported. Assuming it was frozen wedding cake or some similar sentimental item, he opened it.

“There was a pink blanket, baby blanket, and when I reached down and touched it I could feel a foot,” Smith said, adding he “could see the baby’s head with hair — hair was still attached to it, smooth.”

Police arrived the next day to investigate what they are calling a suspicious death.

NEWBORN FOUND DEAD INSIDE APPLEBEE’S RESTROOM IN TEXAS 

Smith will have to wait for an autopsy report to confirm the identity of the victim but he told FOX2 he suspects the body might be that of his older sister. He recalled his mother speaking about losing a child at birth and was even told by a relative that she gave birth to twins, one of whom she gave up for adoption and one of whom died.

“Who absolutely keeps their own child in a box for this long and never talk about it,” he said. “I just have so many thoughts and it’ s just insane. I have to wait for the autopsy to see if that baby ever took a breath and I can not help it to think she might have done something to it. I just can’t help it.”

Smith said the discovery may have come too late, and he worries he’ll never get “closure” regarding the infant’s death now that his mother is gone.

“I’m 37 and it has been in my freezer for 37 years and I was always told it was a wedding cake top,” Smith told KSDK. “My mom has always been secretive about things, about life.”

Prince Harry says he and Meghan Markle only want two kids ‘maximum’

Prince Harry has revealed he only wants “two kids, maximum” in a candid interview for Meghan Markle‘s Vogue.

The Duke of Sussex opened up about his passion for the younger generation, climate change and his love for nature as he spoke with activist Jane Goodall in the Q&A.

In the heart-to-heart chat, the 34-year-old new dad said: “I think, weirdly, because of the people that I’ve met and the places that I’ve been fortunate enough to go to, I’ve always had a connection and a love for nature. I view it differently now, without question.

MEGHAN MARKLE GUEST EDITS VOGUE UK SEPTEMBER ISSUE WITH ‘FORCES FOR CHANGE’ COVER

“I’ve always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children – two, maximum!

“But I’ve always thought: this place is borrowed. And, surely, being as intelligent as we all are, or as evolved as we all are supposed to be, we should be able to leave something better behind for the next generation.”

Prince Harry and Meghan welcomed baby Archie in May – gushing over their “amazing” son.

And the new dad said he had noticed he had been continually evolving, adding that he hoped he would be becoming wiser with age.

He added: “You are continually changing, and if you don’t think that every day is a learning process, then life is going to be very tricky for you.”

Meghan guest edited the September issue of Vogue, but left herself off the cover over fears she would look “boastful.”

She chose to instead focus on 15 women who “break barriers” and the duchess hoped that readers would also be inspired by their work.

The magazine’s editor-in-chief Edward Enninful spoke of the Duchess of Sussex’s decision to leave herself off the cover – unlike Kate Middleton, 37, when she appeared in the magazine in June 2016.

He said: “From the very beginning, we talked about the cover – whether she would be on it or not. In the end, she felt that it would be in some ways a ‘boastful’ thing to do for this particular project.

MEGHAN MARKLE HAS STRUGGLED WITH ‘INTENSITY OF THE SPOTLIGHT’

“She wanted, instead, to focus on the women she admires.”

Inside there is also a conversation between Markle, 37, and former first lady Michelle Obama.

The edition is entitled “Forces For Change,” and Buckingham Palace said this highlights “trailblazing change makers, united by their fearlessness in breaking barriers”.

Ex-swimming executive charged in Hungary for ordering deadly submachine hit on business rival in 1990s

A former Hungarian swimming executive was charged Tuesday with ordering a deadly hit on a business rival in Budapest over two decades ago.

Tamas Gyarfas, who was former vice president of the Lausanne-based International Swimming Federation’s Bureau, denied the charges when he was first detained back in April 2018. He was then released from jail on bail.

NYPD OFFICER ARRESTED IN CONNECTION WITH PLOT TO HIRE HITMAN TO KILL ESTRANGED HUSBAND AND BOYFRIEND’S DAUGHTER

Gyarfas’s lawyer Peter Zamecsnik said the latest charges are “absurd,” adding that “based on the investigation material I reviewed, the case will probably fail in court,” according to Reuters.

Hungarian media mogul Janos Fenyo was murdered back in 1998 after getting sprayed with submachine gun bullets in his car at a stoplight in Budapest. It was one of the more shocking killings in Hungary during the turbulent 1990s following the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe.

CANADIAN POLICE UNABLE TO ‘SUBSTANTIATE’ POSSIBLE SIGHTING OF MURDER SUSPECTS IN MANITOBA

Prosecutors claim both Gyarfas and Fenyo were business competitors, a rivalry that allegedly prompted Gyarfas to order the death of his nemesis.

“The accused decided in 1997 to settle the score for good by having the plaintiff killed,” prosecutors said in the statement, according to Reuters.

Authorities also said Gyarfas ordered the murder through an associate who he had known since 1994. The charges on Tuesday were brought after new evidence emerged in the last decade.

A Slovakian man, Jozef Rohac, was sentenced to life in jail by a Hungarian court in 2017 for the killing of Fenyo, but the name of the person who ordered the killing wasn’t revealed during a trial.

Alyssa Milano says she’s ‘feeling hopeless’ because Republicans inaction on key issues of ‘tyranny’

Actress and activist Alyssa Milano tweeted that she’s “feeling hopeless” thanks to perceived inaction by the Republican Party on key issues.

The star, who has ramped up her political activism in recent years, typically tweets about political issues including the Trump administration, abortion, racism, immigration and gun violence. On Monday she posted an honest note warning her followers that the current political climate is taking its toll on her.

ALYSSA MILANO HELPED CONVINCE BIDEN TO CHANGE STANCE ON HYDE AMENDMENT: REPORT

“I keep getting DM’s asking me if I’m ok,” she wrote. “Truth is…I’m feeling hopeless.”

She continued: “Mass shootings.Corruption.Lies. Racism.Xenophobia.Crimes Against Humanity.

And the Republican Party is not standing up to the tyranny.

It’s a lot.”

The tweet comes shortly after a gunman opened fire at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Northern California Sunday night, killing three people and injuring several others. Although she didn’t specify, the shooting was the bulk of what she was tweeting about in the day prior to revealing that people were messaging her with concern.

ALYSSA MILANO SLAMS ‘HAS BEEN’ JON VOIGHT OVER SUPPORT OF PRESIDENT TRUMP: ‘STAY IN YOUR LANE’

However, there’s no shortage of political issues that Milano finds herself engaging with that could be causing her stress. Most recently she prodded Republicans for their pro-life stance in the wake of the Trump administration’s decision to resume federal government executions for the first time since 2003. She previously took to Twitter to compare images of Vice President Mike Pence’s visit to detention centers at the southern border to those of infamous Holocaust architect Heinrich Himmler. In addition to being outspoken, she revealed she’s gearing up to show her support for Democratic candidates in the 2020 race.

She revealed she’ll attend a fundraiser for Marianne Williamson, but stressed that she’s not made an official choice for her nominee and plans to support several candidates until “the choice is crystal clear.”

Fortunately, the star’s message of hopelessness doesn’t seem all bad as she quickly followed it with a funny gif from “The Simpsons” calling for a supportive group hug.

The grave of a Celtic female who was buried in approximately 200 B.C. has revealed a surprising find — she was buried in a tree coffin and adorned with precious jewelry.

According to a translated statement from the Office for Urban Development in Zurich, Switzerland, the woman was approximately 40 years old when she was buried and “draws a fairly accurate picture of the deceased.”

“The examination of the skeleton and especially of the teeth shows, among other things, that she died at the age of about 40 years,” had performed little physical labor during her lifetime and had likely eaten a lot of starchy or sweetened foods, according to the translated statement.

“A specialist determined the order of the layers of clothing on the basis of the textile, fur and leather scraps preserved in the grave,” the statement continued. “So the woman wore probably a dress made of fine sheep’s wool, about another woolen cloth and a coat of sheepskin.”

The coffin, which still had bark on the exterior, was discovered in March 2017 during construction work on the Schulhaus Kern.

Although Celts who lived during the Iron Age are often thought of as living in the British Isles, they actually lived throughout Europe. Switzerland’s Office for Urban Development found that the woman was likely a local to the area, using an isotope analysis of her bones.

The statement added that the Celtic woman may have known a Celtic man whose grave was discovered in 1903, as she was buried just 260 feet from him. The Celtic man’s grave was adorned with a sword, shield and lance. “His full warrior outfit also identifies him as a higher-level personality,” the release said.

Researchers are still unearthing secrets about the Celts. Earlier this year, researchers found more than 100 fragmented human skulls buried in an open area of Le Cailar, France– a 2,500 year–old town on the Rhone River.

The skulls, which were discovered among ancient weapons in the walled village, date back to the 3rd century B.C., when Le Cailar was a Celtic settlement. The skulls had cuts, indicating decapitation, as well as tongue and brain removal– signs that they may have been put on display until the area was covered in dirt around 200 BC.
