Some 200 bars, each weighing about 20kg (44 pounds), were then scattered across the runway, and police have launched an investigation into the cause of the accident, after cordoning off the area.
2…………> Heavenly Danger: Bottled Water
In a first of its kind study on a global scale of the bottled water industry with global sales of $147 billion dollars, the researchers tested products from 11 brands bought at 19 locations in nine countries around the world for microplastics, leading to identifying the contaminant in 93% of the samples, in great dispersion of quantities and sizes.
According to samples data from portal “Statista”, the world population will be drinking 391 billion litres of bottled water in 2017 — up from 288 billion litres in 2012, leaving us with a burning question: Is consuming such tiny plastic particles safe, and if some were small enough to pass through the gut, “there would be concern about physical invasion of tissue and the chemical load associated with the plastics,” according to concerned scientists.
The study findings indicated that we could be drinking an average of 314 of these smaller particles per litre. Because they could not analyze them in the same way as the larger particles, the researchers cannot entirely rule out that other contaminants could be in the mix.

5……….> MS13 Punk: In The Slammer
Raul Ernesto Landaverde-Giron, aka Humilde and Decente, of Silver Spring, Maryland was convicted of conspiracy to participate in a racketeering enterprise in connection with his gang activity as a member of La Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13. Landaverde-Giron was also found guilty of murder in aid of racketeering; conspiracy to commit murder in aid of racketeering; discharging a firearm during a crime of violence and murder resulting from the discharging of a firearm during a crime of violence.
“With more than 10,000 members across 40 U.S. states, MS-13 is one of the deadliest gangs in America,” said Attorney General Sessions. “That’s why the Trump administration and this Department of Justice have worked aggressively to dismantle this vicious gang and take its members off of our streets. Maryland, in particular, has suffered terribly because of MS-13’s campaign of rape, murder, and extortion. Today’s conviction is another victory for the American people against this uniquely barbaric gang, and I want to thank everyone who played a role in making it possible, especially Homeland Security Investigations, Prince George’s and Montgomery County police, Hyattsville police, and the Assistant U.S. Attorneys and Department of Justice Trial Attorneys who prosecuted the case. MS-13 thinks that they are targeting us—but we are targeting them.”
