U.S. State Department releasses Satellite Images Showing Russian Rockets Hitting Ukraine

U.S. State Department releasses  Satellite Images Showing Russian Rockets Hitting Ukraine

by Scott Neuman

The U.S. State Department has released satellite images it says back up the assertion by Washington and Kiev that Russian forces are firing artillery into eastern Ukraine in support of separatists.

In a four-page document titled Evidence of Russian Shelling into Ukraine, released Sunday, blast marks from rocket launches in Russia and craters in Ukraine can be seen, the State Department says.

The document also shows “self-propelled artillery only found in Russian military units, on the Russian side of the border, oriented in the direction of a Ukrainian military unit within Ukraine.”

It also states that: “Russia-backed separatists have used heavy artillery, provided by Russia, in attacks on Ukrainian forces from inside Ukraine.”

The images are attributed to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence and were taken between July 21 and July 26, officials say — days after the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.

According to The Associated Press, they “claim to show multiple rocket launchers fired at Ukrainian forces from within Ukraine and from Russian soil. One image shows dozens of craters around a Ukrainian military unit and rockets that can travel more than 7 miles.”

The release of the satellite images comes after the U.S. said last week that it had obtained “new evidence” that Russian forces were firing artillery across the border, a charge that Kiev has made repeatedly and loudly in recent days.

It also comes as Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry reportedly agreed in a telephone conversation Sunday on the importance of a cease-fire in eastern Ukraine, according to Reuters.

In a Russian Foreign Ministry statement carried by the news agency, Moscow describes the crisis in Ukraine as an “internal conflict.”

A readout of the conversation issued by the State Department says Kerry “urged Foreign Minister Lavrov to stop the flow of heavy weapons and rocket and artillery fire from Russia into Ukraine, and to begin to contribute to deescalating the conflict.”

The secretary of state “did not accept Foreign Minister Lavrov’s denial that heavy weapons from Russia were contributing to the conflict,” it said.

Neymar’s Brain on Auto-Pilot When He Plays Football, Say Japanese Neurologists

image

Scientists in Japan have measured Neymar’s brain activity while he plays football and have
worked out that, compared to an amateur footballer, he uses 10 percent less cerebral function when he performs a task such as
rotating his ankle.

The Brazil and Barcelona forward had his brain activity recorded during a session in February, and it was compared to those of footballers playing at a lower level in Spain, as well as several other athletes from different sports.

Their findings back up the theory that a player of Neymar’s quality owes a great deal to instinct and playing naturally, with the brain
almost on auto-pilot as he makes football decisions.

Researcher Eliichi Naito told AFP, via Yahoo! Sports: “From MRI images we discovered Neymar’s brain activity to be less than 10
percent of an amateur player. It is possible genetics is a factor, aided by the type of training he does.”

And Naito also added in an interview with Japanese newspaper Mainichi Shimbu:
“Reduced brain activity means less burden which allows (the player) to perform many complex movements at once. We believe this gives him the ability to execute his various shimmies.”

Although neither were tested, Naito also added that he expected the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo
and Lionel Messi would register similar levels of brain activity as they play.

Neymar made an early impression at the 2014 World Cup with four goals, but a back injury in
the quarter-finals ended his campaign early, and Brazil fell apart with heavy defeats to
Germany and the Netherlands as the tournament reached its conclusion.

This Guy Woke Up In The Hospital To Find That His Penis Had Been AMPUTATED Instead Of Circumcised

This Guy Woke Up In The Hospital To Find That His Penis Had Been AMPUTATED Instead Of Circumcised 

While this is more of a horror story than a comedic one, you can’t help but chuckle if you try to imagine this guy’s reaction after he woke up from the anesthesia. Picture it. He’s laying there in a hospital bed and then he goes to scratch his nuts or something, only to find….his penis is gone? Horrifying yes, but what do you say to the nurse? “Uh, I seem to have misplaced my dick, have you seen where it went?” It’s like a really, really bad Key & Peele sketch.

It sounds like an urban myth. Unfortunately, for Johnny Lee Banks Jnr, it’s the painful truth.

The Alabama resident says his life is in ruins after doctors mistakenly amputated his penis during a routine circumcision.

Mr Banks and his wife Zelda are suing the hospital, doctors and a local clinic for medical malpractice, seeking unspecified damages.

“The lawsuit says the patient was receiving medical treatment from a doctor at Urology Centers of Alabama. Another doctor performed the surgical procedure in June. The lawsuit does not give an exact date.

‘When the plaintiff … awoke from his aforesaid surgical procedure, his penis was amputated,’ according to the lawsuit. The plaintiffs ‘never gave consent for the complete or partial amputation of (his) penis.’”

Not only is his dick missing, but no one will apparently tell him why.

“The lawsuit claims that the man was never provided with an explanation as to the medical necessity of an amputation nor was never warned the circumcision procedure could result in an amputation.”

The lawsuit names the hospital, Urology Centers of Alabama, the Simon-Williamson Clinic and 2 doctors and alleged Mr Banks “never gave consent for the complete or partial amputation of (his) penis.”

Ronaldo and Weezy are apparently great friends and this has been cooking in Wayne’s head for a while.

Ronaldo even tweeted a photo of himself with the Prime Minister of Japan and other politicians where they are all throwing up the YMCMB sign.

According to TMZ, Lil Wayne’s company will “handle Ronaldo’s sports management affairs in the Unites States” and will work
with PolarisSports, which is affiliated with CAA and GestiFute through which Ronaldo’s

Woman Didn’t Realize She’s Had a 5-Inch Sex Toy Stuck In Her Vagina For 10 Years

Woman Didn’t Realize She’s Had a 5-Inch Sex Toy Stuck In Her Vagina For 10 Years 

If you and your boyfriend come back from a wild night out and start having sex, please, for the love of God, make sure you remember to remove the sex toy you guys drunkenly fumbled around with from inside your vagina.

A 38-year-old Scottish woman was experiencing the shakes, severe weight loss, lethargy and a few weeks of mild urinary incontinence. When doctors examined her, they were appalled to discover a foreign object protruding from her vagina into her bladder.

After a surgical removal, the confirmation came: It was a five-inch-long sex toy. And it had been there for 10 years.

The woman couldn’t believe it. She said she’d used it 10 years ago and admitted to having been drunk — see! — so she forgot if she removed it.

Due to the sex toy being lodged inside her body, she was suffering from vesicovaginal fistula, a condition where a woman’s urine flows into the vagina, and an obstructive uropathy, a bladder blockage that causes urine to back up into the kidneys.

The damage, thankfully, was repaired, but doctors say she could have experienced more life-threatening conditions.

Since a vagina has lots of nerve endings and is very sensitive, it’s unusual for an item to get stuck in there unknowingly.

The woman had a normal IQ, wasn’t depressed and had never been abused, so how the item got shoved in there for so long puzzled doctors.

I guess she was just feeling really, really, really kinky that night.

A Letter From God

 A Letter From God

WOW! Please take a minute to read this adorable story on FaceBook a while ago and thought that you might enjoy iy! —>

Our 14-year-old dog Abbey died last month. The day after she passed away my 4-year-old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey. She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her. I told her that I thought we could so, and she dictated these words:

Dear God,

Will you please take care of my dog? She died yesterday and is with you in heaven. I miss her very much. I am happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick.
I hope you will play with her. She likes to swim and play with balls. I am sending a picture of her so when you see her you will know that she is my dog. I really miss her.

Love, Meredith

We put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey and Meredith and addressed it to God/Heaven. We put our return address on it. Then Meredith pasted several stamps on the front of the envelope because she said it would take lots of stamps to get the letter all the way to heaven. That afternoon she dropped it into the letter box at the post office. A few days later, she asked if God had gotten the letter yet. I told her that I thought He had.

Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch addressed, ‘To Meredith’ in an unfamiliar hand. Meredith opened it. Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers called, ‘When a Pet Dies.’ Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God in its opened envelope. On the opposite page was the picture of Abbey & Meredith and this note:

Dear Meredith,

Abbey arrived safely in heaven. Having the picture was a big help and I recognized her right away.

Abbey isn’t sick anymore. Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart. Abbey loved being your dog. Since we don’t need our bodies in heaven, I don’t have any pockets to keep your picture in so I am sending it back to you in this little book for you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by.

Thank you for the beautiful letter and thank your mother for helping you write it and sending it to me. What a wonderful mother you have. I picked her especially for you. I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much. By the way, I’m easy to find. I am wherever there is love.

Love, God
