Louisiana arson suspect expressed disgust with Baptist churches on Facebook

(CNN)Four days before his arrest in connection with the three Louisiana Baptist church fires, Holden Matthews expressed disgust with Baptist beliefs on Facebook, CNN has learned. All three churches authorities say Matthews burned down were black Baptist churches in the heart of south central Louisiana’s Cajun and Creole country. The suspect is the 21-year-old son of a St. Landry Parish sheriff’s deputy and may have been influenced by “black metal” music and its “associated history with church burnings,” the state fire marshal’s office said. CNN reached out to Matthews’ lawyer and the prosecutor’s office but have not yet received a response. When CNN asked authorities if they were aware of the posting, they said because the investigation was ongoing they …

Police set up secret cameras to try and catch a mountain lion and then everything got surreal.

On March 29, young mountain lions attacked a 7-year-old boy in Canada, but they were fought off by the boy’s mother. This came on the heels of encounters in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Palestine, Texas, and Santa Barbara, California. The recent encounters in the news aren’t a fluke, but actually the sign of something good. Since the ‘60s, conservation efforts have helped replenish the mountain lion population in North America, so they’re becoming more visible to humans. Then two alien gorillas joined each other in what appears to be a loving embrace. My god, let’s hope they don’t mate. Gardner Police Department / Facebook The Gardner Police Department released the bizarre photos and now it looks like the mountain lion was …

Wendy Williams Reportedly Decided On Divorce After Her Husband Confessed His Alleged Misdeeds – Deets HERE! – Perez Hilton

’ divorce was a long time coming… As we reported at the time, she allegedly checked out of her sober living home last month — without her wedding ring on, no less — and was later found drunk by her team. Only earlier that month when Williams returned to her show after her hiatus, she made it clear to fans that they’d know she was really done with Hunter when the ring came off for good. She said: “Marriages are not easy – and don’t ask me about mine until you see this gone. It ain’t going anywhere, not in this lifetime.” Well, that time has evidently come. The TV personality’s soon-to-be ex still currently serves as an exec producer …

The Latest: Results of Israeli vote raise Palestinian fears

An aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas says the outcome of Israel’s election raises Palestinian fears about an Israeli annexation of parts of the occupied West Bank. Close-to-complete unofficial results indicated on Wednesday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is headed to a fifth term, with the expected support of nationalist and ultra-Orthodox Jewish parties. In the final stretch of the campaign, Netanyahu pledged he would annex Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, a move that would destroy remaining hopes for Palestinian statehood. Abbas aide Ahmed Majdalani says that Palestinians will seek the help of the international community to try to block any annexation plans. He said that the outcome of the election means a boost for what he called …

Barr Assembles Team To Scrutinize Origins Of The FBI’s Trump Campaign Probe: Reports

Donald Trump and his Republican supporters have long called for the Justice Department to scrutinize decisions made by the FBI related to its 2016 investigation into the Trump presidential campaign — an investigation that the president has repeatedly lambasted as politically motivated. It now appears that Attorney General Barr, who was tapped by Trump to head the Department of Justice in December, has put together a team to review earlier counterintelligence decisions made by the Justice Department and the FBI, including a look into the origins of the FBI investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties with Russia, according to separate reports from Fox News on Tuesday. Both news outlets cited unnamed sources who were familiar with the situation.  answered lawmakers’ questions about …

Trump will leave a legacy of selfishness and dishonesty | Joseph Stiglitz

The presidents attack on every pillar of society jeopardises the USs continued prosperity and ability to function as a democracy Kirstjen Nielsens withdrawal from the Paris climate accord, the Nuclear Forces treaty? And, of course, there is his war on the environment, on healthcare, and on the rules-based international system. This morbid game never ends, of course, because new contenders for the title emerge almost daily. Trump is a disrupting personality, and after hes gone, we may well reflect on how such a deranged and morally challenged person could have been elected president of the worlds most powerful country in the first place. But what concerns me most is Trumps disruption of the institutions that are necessary for the functioning …

Woolly Mammoths And Neanderthals Are More Genetically Similar Than You Might Think

Aside from being able to call Ice Age Europe their home, Neanderthals and woolly mammoths might not appear to have all that much in common. But a study recently published in the journal Human Biology suggests otherwise. Researchers from Tel Aviv University (TAU) in Israel have studied genetic adaptions in the two now-extinct species, finding they both shared molecular characteristics of adaption to cold surroundings.  “They say you are what you eat,” Ran Barkai from TAU’s Department of Archaeology and Ancient Near Eastern Cultures said in a statement. “This was especially true of Neanderthals; they ate mammoths but were apparently also genetically similar to mammoths.” Like Neanderthals, Eurasian woolly mammoths (Mammuthus primigenius) were direct descendants of an Africa-dwelling ancestor – in their case, the Mammuthus rumanus. …
