Although Britain has given itself an almighty shock, the visionary outcome of this leave vote ought to start a grand debate across the continent

A silly question was asked and a silly answer was given. That is democracy. But so is leadership. As the good ship Tory government smashes on to rocks of its own devising, David Cameron has, perhaps inevitably, decided to desert the bridge for any refloat. He made a massive misjudgment, but it was one in which almost the entire British establishment has colluded.

They must all now perform a U-turn. They must behave as if Project Fear was overstated. Every muscle must be strained for a new relationship with Europe. Other leaders of the EU, fearing similar disintegrating pressures, must know they all have a vested interest in minimising the damage. The idea of “punishing” Britain will merely compound the stupidity and risk to European stability.

The immediate job is not to reflect on causes but to get down to work. The referendum is consultative. Procedures must be followed. For the time being, Britain remains a member of the European Union, but parliament must honour the government’s commitment to the British people to adhere to their decision. Officially that takes two years, though in Europe anything can happen. The French government in 2005 contrived to disregard a popular rejection of the Lisbon treaty.

VATICAN CITY – Pope Francis is amplifying his opposition to capital punishment, saying it’s an offense to life, contradicts God’s plan and serves no purpose for punishment.

In a video message to an anti-death penalty congress in Norway, Francis declared the commandment “Thou shalt not kill” has absolute value and applies both to the innocent and to the guilty.

Francis has gone beyond his predecessors and traditional Catholic teaching in saying there is simply no justification for the death penalty today. He said Tuesday that rather than rendering justice, it fosters vengeance.

Church teaching allows for recourse to capital punishment when it is the only way to defend lives “effectively” against an aggressor.

“It must not be forgotten that the inviolable and God-given right to life also belongs to the criminal,” he said.

Francis sent the video message to the delegates of the sixth World Congress against capital punishment, currently being held in Oslo, Norway.
 
The pontiff did not mention any particular country in his message.

He stressed the practice of capital punishment brings no justice to victims.

“Indeed, nowadays, the death penalty is unacceptable, however grave the crime of the convicted person,” Francis said in the message.

The World Congress in Oslo discussed the need to sustain the move in abolishing the death penalty in some countries.

As of today, 140 nations have abolished the death penalty, as compared to only 16 countries in 1977.

The Republic of the Congo, Fiji, Madagascar, Mongolia and Suriname become the latest countries to formally abolish capital punishment.

The death penalty is prevalent in Asia and the Middle East, with Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Iran responsible for 89 percent of recorded executions in 2015. This does not include China, where official statistics on its use are considered a state secret.

China, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and the US are the five biggest executioners in the world.

Other countries have passed counterterrorism laws that expanded the list of crimes punishable by death.

In the coming days, an obscure arbitral tribunal, formed under the aegis of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), is expected to issue a final ruling on the Philippines’ complaint against China’s expanding (military and civilian) footprint across the world’s most important waterway, the South China Sea. Let’s put things into perspective.

In the last two years, China has reclaimed 3200 acres (1,295 hectares) of land to build gigantic artificial islands in Spratly chain of islands, giving birth to a sprawling network of civilian and military installations across the disputed waters. Singlehandedly, China in recent years has reclaimed almost two dozen times more than all other claimant states combined in the past half-a-century. And nothing compares to China’s futuristic and highly sophisticated artificially-built islands in the high seas.

China is even more dominant in other portions of the disputed waters. Its control of the Paracel chain of islands is a fait accompli, while the Pratas chain of islands are under the administration of what Beijing considers as a renegade province, Taiwan, which will likely be eventually reincorporated into a Greater China. There are reports that China may soon also establish military facilities on the Scarborough Shoal, which lies just 200 kilometres away from Philippines shores but w whopping 900 kilometres away from nearest Chinese coastline. There are concerns that China may soon establish an exclusion zone in the area.

The sheer scale, speech and technological sophistication of China’s reclamation activities, the ever-larger deployment of Chinese fishermen-cum-militia forces, stationing of advanced military hardware like high-frequency radars and surface-to-air-missile systems, the augmentation of Chinese coast guard, submarine and naval presence in the area, not to mention an uptick in Chinese aerial interception of foreign reconnaissance aircrafts in the South China Sea - they all underscore Beijing’s intent on dominating what it describes as its blue “national soil”. Soon, China may be in a position to establish an “exclusion zone” in the area, imperilling freedom of overflight and navigation for regional and external military forces in the area.

VIENNA: Global opium production plunged almost 40 percent last year but the world remains awash with heroin, the narcotic that still kills the most people worldwide, the United Nations said Thursday.

“Heroin continues to be the drug that kills the most people and this resurgence must be addressed urgently,” said Yury Fedotov, head of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), in a new report.

It said that production of opium, which is processed into heroin, fell to 4,770 tons in 2015, down 38 percent from the previous year.

However, 2014 was one of the strongest years on record and last year saw a poor harvest in Afghanistan, the world’s biggest opium producer accounting for 70 percent of global output.

The report also said the sharp fall was “unlikely” to lead to “major shortages” in heroin supplies since traffickers have built up massive stockpiles in recent years.

“There’s no reason to think that heroin production in Afghanistan is over,” the report’s lead researcher Angela Me told Agence France-Presse.

“There’s still a lot of heroin in the market.”

From cleaning corpses to sex with strangers, widow rituals fuel disease in Africa

DOUALA/DAKAR (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - When Clarisse's husband died of malaria last year in the Cameroonian city of Douala, she was kicked out of their home by his family and forced to marry his brother.

After having sex with her new husband, the 34-year-old discovered she had syphilis, a sexually transmitted disease that can lead to blindness and stroke if untreated.

"He accused me of infidelity. He called a meeting of our families and told them I was a prostitute," she said tearfully, fiddling with the gold wedding ring from her first marriage.

"Everyone accused me of being a witch and said it was me who had killed my husband ... my stepmother threatened to kill me," added Clarisse, who fled with her daughter to the outskirts of Douala, where she lives in an old wooden shack on a riverbank.

Eight Philippine universities led by the University of the Philippines are included in the latest Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) University Rankings on the top 350 universities in Asia.

UP ranked 70th in the 2016 QS rankings, unchanged from last year, followed by the Ateneo de Manila University which went up 15 places from 114th in 2015 to 99th this year.

De La Salle University (DLSU), meanwhile, had the biggest leap in the QS rankings with a 40-point jump from 183rd to 143rd spot, overtaking the University of Santo Tomas (UST), which dropped 14 points from 143rd to 157th.

UST, however, is the lone Philippine university that received four QS stars.

According to the QS website, the star rating system “allows students to get a wider picture of an institution's qualities, looking at everything from employability of graduates, to sports facilities and community engagement.”

“It is designed to reflect the nuanced mission of universities, and the needs of students who may be interested in things other than those to which traditional rankings are necessarily limited,” the London-based career and education firm added.

Siliman University, Xavier University in Cagayan de Oro, and Ateneo de Davao University, meanwhile, were in the 250-300 bracket while University of San Carlos in Cebu was in the 301-350 bracket.

QS uses nine indicators to compile the University Rankings: academic reputation, employer reputation, faculty/student ratio, citations paper, papers per faculty, staff with a doctorate degree, proportion of international faculty and students, and the proportion of inbound and outbound exchange students. —Joseph Tristan Roxas/KBK, GMA News

If you’ve ever felt like someone was watching you, you may have attributed that awareness to a sense of unease or a prickling on the back of your neck. But there’s nothing psychic about it; your brain was simply picking up on cues. In fact, your brain is wired to inform you that someone is looking at you — even when they’re not.

“Far from being ESP, the perception originates from a system in the brain that's devoted to detecting where others are looking,” writes social psychologist Ilan Shrira. This concept may sound confusing, but it actually makes a lot of sense when you think about it as a survival instinct.

Many mammals can tell when another animal is looking at them, but the human “gaze-detection system” is particularly good at doing this from a distance. We’re able to easily discern where someone is looking.

This system is especially sensitive when someone is looking at you directly, and studies have found that particular cells fire when this happens.

“Gaze perception — the ability to tell what someone is looking at — is a social cue people often take for granted,” Colin Clifford, a psychologist at the University of Sydney's Vision Center, told the Daily Mail. “Judging whether others are looking at us may come naturally, but it's actually not that simple as our brains have to do a lot of work behind the scenes.”

When you catch someone looking at you, what is it that clued you in? Often, it’s as simple as the position of the person's head or body.

If both the head and body are turned toward you, it’s clear where the person's attention is focused. It’s even more obvious when the person's body is pointed away from you but their head is facing you. When this happens, you immediately look to the person’s eyes to see where they're looking.

Earth has captured a second moon, says NASA
A mini-moon has been orbiting our planet for only around 100 years.

Well, this is awkward. Earth's relationship with the moon is no longer a monogamous one. Scientists have identified a second, mini-moon orbiting our planet that has probably only been around for about 100 years, reports NASA.

This second moon looks to be a recently captured asteroid, and like a mistress, its subtle dance with Earth may be fleeting, only sticking around for a few centuries. Still, it's a remarkable event that proves just how dynamic our gravitational relationship is with near-Earth objects.

The video above showcases in detail the path of the new moon's orbit as it bobs up and down like a tiny float in choppy water. As said, it's small, measuring in at only around 120 feet across and no more than 300 feet wide, which is probably why it has taken so long for scientists to spot it. (It was only just spotted last April.) Its distance from Earth varies from between 38 and 100 times the distance of our planet’s primary moon.

MANILA (Reuters) - Philippine police killed 11 suspected drug dealers during operations at the weekend, police said on Monday, adding to a surge of drugs-related killings since Rodrigo Duterte swept an election last month on promises to wipe out crime.

Duterte's single-issue campaign of tackling illegal drugs and other crime within six months, and his staunch advocacy of extrajudicial killings, struck a chord with Filipino voters. However, rights groups have rebuked him over concerns that, as president, he would live up to his nickname of "the punisher".

The more than 40 drug suspects killed since Duterte's May 9 election victory compares with the 39 deaths recorded in the four months before it, said National Police spokesman Wilben Mayor.

Duterte takes office on June 30 and has repeatedly reassured police they would have his full support if they killed criminals who resisted with violence. He has also warned that police found to be involved in the drug trade would suffer the same fate.

Speculation has been rife in Manila that some police involved in the drugs business were clearing the decks before Duterte takes office by eliminating criminals who could implicate them.

However, incoming national police chief Ronald dela Rosa said drug peddlers were killed in legitimate operations.

"I would know if these people were killed in rub-outs," he said in a radio interview.

You may have heard the saying that the ocean is “95 percent” unexplored. Marine biologists feel that it is a gross oversimplification. Scientists today, using tricks involving satellites, radar, and a lot of math, have managed to map ocean terrain to a maximum resolution of 5 kilometers (3 mi). While this is still only accurate up to a point, it is a lot more detailed knowledge than some people realize. Marine biologists have a pretty good idea what trenches, dips, and ridges exist in the ocean and are regularly updating their technology and improving their mapping.

However, marine biologist John Copley, even while pointing out the fallacy of the meme, also admits in Scientific American than in practicality, we probably have much less than 5 percent of the ocean actually explored. True full sonar coverage of an area—which would allow us to find wrecks as small as flights like MH370—is something we have only achieved for less than 1 percent of the ocean.

In terms of actually knowing what is physically happening in most of the ocean, how the ecosystem is, and what all the various creatures are in it, our knowledge is probably even less. As far as marine biologists are concerned, the ocean is an almost limitless place for exploration. We could spend thousands of years and trillions of dollarsm and there would still be the vast majority yet to discover and understand. -- http://listverse.com/

History / Headless Portraits

A lot of bizarre trends emerged after the invention of photography. The most famous of these trends was post-mortem photography, which showed us how death-obsessed the Victorians were due to the high mortality rate back then. However, that wasn’t the only morbid photography trend that was popular at that time. In 1853, a prominent photographer named Oscar Rejlander started an equally disturbing trend known as “Headless Portraits.”

Oscar, sometimes considered the father of art photography, combined negatives and formed pictures of living people beside their own decapitated heads. Soon, there was a huge demand for these photographs, and several photographers adopted the technique.

People took pictures in which their heads were everywhere but on their neck. They held their decapitated heads tucked under their arms, some placed theirs on a platter, while others even dangled it from their own hands with a knife on the other hand. No one was left out of this bizarre fun, as even children were known to take headless portraits. -- http://listverse.com/

It's easy to see why this humanoid robot got the job as the newest staff member at Belgium's AZ Damiaan hospital.

Pepper speaks 19 languages, knows her way around the place, and has the perfect bedside manner.

Employed to welcome patients and visitors, it was developed by Belgium's Zora Bots to improve health care.

The company's Fabrice Goffin says Pepper is not like other humanoid robots on the market.

"The robot itself is a metre 20 high, so it is not like Arnold Schwarzenegger with a leather jacket and an 'I will be back' robot, it is a quite nice robot and the reactions are positive for the moment for as long as it does not take jobs but it is not the case for Pepper," said Fabrice Goffin, Zora Bots co-CEO.

The robot was designed with specialized software that works on any device with internet access.

A complete charge gives it up to 20 hours of walk and talk time. And at a mellow pace of 3 kilometres per hour all patients are able to keep up with Pepper, even slower moving ones.

In its first week on the job, Pepper was assigned to the maternity ward.

"It is another way of making contact and maybe it is reassuring that it is a robot for some people. So it can be, I know. The baby was really sure, he did not mind putting his hands on it. It did not frighten him so I think it will be important. Especially for children," said Bieke Vandeputte, a mother.

With a personal touch like Pepper's, heading to the hospital could become a new kind of experience, one that even puts a smile on patients' faces. — Reuters

TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol — Police killed an alleged drug pusher and arrested seven others in a buy-bust operation inside a drug den on Sunday night.

The fatality was identified as Rogaciano “Tano” Omus, Jr., a resident of Pamaong Extension, Cogon District, in this city.

Supt. George Acol Vale, Tagbilaran police chief,  described Omus as a “notorious” drug dealer whose customers were usually students and tricycle drivers.

Omus sold P500 worth of shabu to an undercover policeman at an abandoned house owned by his brother in Cogon District, in this city, at 9:30 p.m. Sunday.

When a drug bust was announced, the suspect  resisted arrest, pulled out his .38 caliber revolver from his waist and fired at the police officer, said Vale.

This prompted the policeman to shoot the suspect.

Police recovered from the crime scene sachets of suspected shabu and several drug paraphernalia and a .38 hand gun.

The police also caught seven persons allegedly sniffing shabu inside the house.

They were identified as Marjune Melo, 28; Nicanor Ingking, 45; Cornelio Colata, 23; Venerando Camanzo, 24 and  Michael Ray Ronco, 18, all from Tagbilaran City.

The two others were minors from Dauis and Panglao towns.

Vale said charges of violation of  the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002, would be filed against the suspects who were detained at the Tagiblaran police station.

He said the two minors would be turned over to the city Social Welfare and Development Office.  SFM/rga

If you have adopted a dog or cat in your lifetime, you know that they can completely change your world. After they wrap their little paws around your heart, life before dog or cat (B.D. or B.C. respectively) almost seems like a dark distant memory. We have to say we owe a lot to our fur babies for teaching us how to enjoy the little things in life and learning how to love unconditionally.

Given the amazing bonds that we’ve seen develop between animals and humans, we can’t say that this epic love story between a man and his rescue kitten comes as a surprise. Still, surprise or not, their relationship is incredibly sweet.

When Imgur user, ErikBurton, walked into the local humane society with his girlfriend, he met the little ball of fluff who would soon become his new best friend, Soren the kitten.

YOURSAY | ‘If one can lie about RM2.6b, I guess we shouldn’t be surprised about this RM12m.’

Zahid: RM12m raised by kin given to Filipino Islamic body

FellowMalaysian: DPM and Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi tells us the hostages' families had managed to raise RM12 million and this was paid not as ransom but to an Islamic body in the Philippines which is not linked to terrorism nor crime.

The DPM is expecting us to believe that the relatives are super rich and raising millions was a breeze, and that there are 'organisations' in the Philippines which are true to Islamic struggles but parley with the kidnappers and abductors, and which upon receiving the RM12 million 'donation' from the Malaysian authorities purportedly only to be used for Islamic upliftment activities, has miraculously managed to 'persuade and convince' the kidnappers into releasing the four victims without having paid them any money from the RM12 million raised?

And the DPM talked with a straight face before issuing a public statement 'clarifying' the circumstances as to what led to the confusion. Zahid expects us to believe his story as to him, Malaysians are gullible and will accept anything he said.

Kuasa Rakyat: In Malaysia, the word ‘donation’ is a very popular word. It is almost certain that the Abu Sayyaf group collected the ‘donation’ from the so-called Islamic body, which received the ‘donation’ from Malaysia.

Kawak: If the Islamic body has nothing to do with the kidnappers, how come the victims were released after payment?

This is a play on words. Is interest on loan the same as profit-sharing dividends on loans given out? In substance, the money was paid to secure the release. You can call it ransom or donation. It is the same.

At Scarborough Shoal, China Is Playing With Fire: Retired Admiral

A former U.S. commander warns that Beijing would be taking a big risk if it started dredging on the disputed shoal near the Philippines.

China would risk a potential military confrontation with the United States if it started dredging on a disputed shoal off the coast of the Philippines, retired U.S. Navy Adm. Dennis Blair said Thursday. And in a clash with the United States and its allies in the Philippines, Beijing almost certainly would lose, he said.

“If the Chinese push there, I think there’s going to be trouble,” said Blair, who once oversaw U.S. forces in the region as the former four-star head of Pacific Command. “And it’s trouble that the United States and the Philippines are going to win because the military situation is set up that way.”

To assert its power in the South China Sea and back up its expansionist territorial claims, Beijing has sent out fishing fleets in contested waters and built up artificial islands atop reefs in the past two year years, constructing airstrips and deep-water harbors that can accommodate naval ships.

In a growing rivalry over the strategic waterway, both China and the United States have stepped up patrols of naval ships, reconnaissance planes, and fighter jets in the disputed waters. The deployments have amounted to “shadow boxing” between the two powers and the risk of conflict has remained relatively low, said Blair, who also served as director of national intelligence during President Barack Obama’s first term.

But unlike the disputed Spratly Islands, which are the subject of multiple rival claims from China and several other Southeast Asian countries, the Scarborough Shoal effectively pits Beijing directly against Manila.

With the shoal located less than 150 miles from the Philippines, but 500 miles from China, experts believe Manila has a strong legal case in the disputed claims. The stakes are high as the Philippines has a mutual defense treaty with the United States that could possibly be invoked if Manila sought to defend what it considers sovereign territory.

“I would be surprised if the United States hasn’t told China it’s a shoal too far for them,” Blair told a group of reporters at a briefing at the Sasakawa Peace Foundation, where he serves as CEO. “It hasn’t been said publicly, but I hope we have done so privately.”

Tensions rose this week at the shoal after Chinese Coast Guard vessels prevented a Philippine nationalist group from planting a Filipino flag on one of the rock outcroppings.

In his tragic last days, wasting away from savage pancreatic cancer, Patrick Swayze was imprisoned in a house of horrors – deserted by his cheating, abusive wife, who left the dying star to wallow in his own filth!

That’s the shocking charge by one of the “Dirty Dancing” icon’s closest friends, who rips the lid off what was believed to be a Hollywood fairy-tale marriage that lasted 34 years, ending when Patrick, 57, died of cancer on Sept 14, 2009.

According to the friend, Patrick’s personal hell was made worse in his final months because wife Lisa Niemi kept the actor, who’d shrunk to a pitiful 90 pounds, a prisoner in his own home – banning his mother and loved ones from visiting.

MANILA, Philippines (AP) — In a crackdown bearing the Philippine president-elect’s name, police have rounded up hundreds of children or their parents to enforce a night curfew for minors, and taken away drunk and shirtless men roaming metropolitan Manila’s slums. The poor, who were among Rodrigo Duterte’s strongest supporters, are getting a foretaste of the war against crime he has vowed to wage.

During a surprise sweep witnessed by The Associated Press last week, a girl who appeared to be about 10 years old was dragged to a police van for curfew violation. She protested that she had been outside only to take out the garbage. A boy about the same age cried, “I do not want to go!” A slightly older-looking boy, looking terrified, dropped the box of a rice and beef meal he’d just bought when police apprehended him.

A bewildered mother sleeping on a sidewalk with her toddler wailed when a social worker took her son, and she was dragged to a police vehicle. “Where is my child? I will go crazy here!” she shouted, pleading with police to “please have mercy on me.”

The woman wore a rubber bracelet bearing Duterte’s name. She relaxed when a social worker brought her son to the same vehicle.

The crackdown is dubbed “Oplan Rody.” Oplan is short for operation plan, while Rody is both an acronym for “Rid the Streets of Drinkers and Youth” and the nickname of Duterte, who becomes president June 30.

In the weeks since the tough-talking mayor of southern Davao city won the presidential election, energized police and local officials have dusted off little-enforced city ordinances like night-to-dawn curfews for minors, a ban on drinking alcohol in the streets and shirtless men in public places.

Rolando Roxas, father of a 14-year-old boy apprehended while buying noodles, said it’s probably a good lesson for the children not to roam the streets at night.

But Jocelyn Chavez is angry. She is a small-time vendor who works at night to support her five children, and she had to forego her day’s earnings to get her daughter, who she said was picked up while taking out the garbage. “If I don’t work we will all have nothing to eat,” she said.
