    Wynn Resorts' strong quarter in Vegas, Boston was wiped out by Covid restrictions in Macao
    Trapped for weeks in a basement, Olga Anosova thought her apartment block in Mariupol was being specifically targeted. Almost daily, Russian forces bombarded it with every kind of missile from all sides, stripping the nine storeys above Olga and her family to a shell. With her husband Alexander, 39, eight-year-old son Kirill and mother Ludmila, 65, the 41-year-old lawyer hid in the freezing shelter, not knowing if the day would be their last. It seems beyond comprehension, she says, but they shared the 540 sq ft room – the equivalent of three and a half car parking spaces – with more than 40 others.  There was no room to lie down. They just sat, night after night in -8C conditions, waiting for the next missile. It was only when Olga finally emerged on to Shevchenko Boulevard in the centre of the city at 7 o’clock one morning, tightly squeezing Kirill’s hand as they threaded their way through the streets of the most dangerous place on Earth, that she realised her apartment building was the same as every other one.

    Scientists have revealed plans to bring back the extinct Christmas Island rat, 119 years after it was wiped out.  In a new paper, an international team of academics outline how the use of CRISPR - a gene editing technique which can 'cut and paste' small sections of DNA, deleting or repairing flawed genes - could lead to the rat's 'de-extinction'.  Scientists would use CRISPR to edit the DNA of a living rat species to match that of the Christmas Island rat, although the new creation may have some differences compared to the original species.  Rattus macleari, commonly known as the Christmas Island rat or Maclear's rat, was a large rat endemic to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean.  But it was driven to extinction between 1898 and 1908, thought to be due to diseases brought over on European ships.   Artist's depiction of the Christmas Island rat (Rattus macleari), which was driven to extinction between 1898 and 1908 Rattus macleari, commonly known as the Christmas Island rat and Maclear's rat, was a large rat endemic to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean THE CHRISTMAS...
    (CNN)When Gurjeet Gill Dhanoa's family moved from Canada nearly 23 years ago, they planned to operate the Tandoori Grill in Boulder County, Colorado, for just a few months. But the restaurant proved successful and they stayed, putting down roots in the community they now call home. By the end of 2021, all they had left was that store. For most of last year, the family had been adjusting to the changes the Covid-19 pandemic forced on the restaurant: navigating takeout orders instead of in-house diners, shutting down their lunch buffet and relying on federal financial aid to make ends meet. How you can give or receive help for victims of Colorados wildfiresThe day Gill Dhanoa went to get her first Covid-19 vaccine -- a Monday, when the restaurant is usually closed -- the familiar plaza where their business is located flashed on the news. Their store sits across the street from a King Soopers, where a mass shooting was unfolding. The gunman killed 10 people -- some shoppers, others employees -- ranging from 20 to 65 years old. In the...
    The 'Great Dying' of 250 million years ago — which wiped out 90 per cent of living species — was driven in part by an eruption that generated a global volcanic winter.  Thus concludes research led by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, who studied contemporary copper-rich deposits from the Sichuan province of south China. Anomalies in these rocks — which were covered by layers of volcanic ash — suggest that they were formed or affected by sulphur-rich emissions from nearby volcanoes. When injected into the atmosphere, sulphur aerosols act to reflect incoming sunlight back into space and modify clouds, resulting in a rapid cooling effect.  The researchers believe that volcanism in China could have temporarily lowered average global temperatures by some 4°C (7.2°F).  The ' Great Dying ' of 250 million years ago — which wiped out 90 per cent of living species — was driven in part by an eruption that generated a global volcanic winter. This is the conclusion of a study led by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, who studied copper-rich deposits (including malachites) unearthed from Sichuan, south China (pictured)...
    Yet another free agent, Isaiah Thomas, hopes to find ownership for next year. In the idea, the leader believed that the team should be with USA to get revived when they see his message. A bold tweet, after all, seems to make people laugh on the web. Some internet users quickly made fun of the little goddess. Without a team from a very short adventure with the Pelicans (3 games), Isaiah Thomas has not given up his dream of returning to the NBA. This summer you have to be patient and wait for an opportunity, but nothing is possible in the league, especially if an owner wants to find a score. But can the former Celtic still be on the level? I saw her latest teaseThe answer is clearly yes. However, IT has recently stood alone A tweet to Team USA. It is unclear if he was serious, but if Greg Popovic ever needed his services, he sent a message to show that he was in Las Vegas. So frankly, the internet was all about having fun, and you...
    Eggs littered the sand, but there was no sign of life around or in them. The seabirds that should have been keeping watch had taken off, terrified by a drone that crash-landed into their nesting grounds on an island at the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve. “We’ve never seen such devastation here,” said Melissa Loebl, an environmental scientist who manages the Huntington Beach reserve. “This has been really hard for me as a manager.” Some 3,000 elegant terns fled the reserve after the drone crashed May 12, leaving behind 1,500 to 2,000 eggs, none of them viable. It was the largest egg abandonment that scientists who work there can recall. As for the birds, which are highly sensitive to perceived threats — nobody is sure what happened to them. “We actually still don’t know where they are,” Loebl said. The mass abandonment was the culmination of a year of issues caused by increased traffic to the reserve, which has seen the number of visitors double as the COVID-19 pandemic sent droves of people outdoors. There has been an uptick in bicyclists,...
    Vox Senior Correspondent Zack Beauchamp is demanding an apology from Federalist cofounder and fill-in Fox News host Ben Domenech after a segment in which the latter derided an article about anti-Semitism Beauchamp had written. On Thursday, Domenech highlighted the piece, which documents the very real rise in attacks on Jewish Americans in recent weeks, which have coincided with the latest violent flareup in tensions between Israel and Palestine. Beauchamp argued that this may be coincidental, since conflict between the two peoples has not previously meant a rise in anti-Semitic attacks in the United States. The article offers three plausible theories for the uptick in incidents, one of which is the “Europeanization” of anti-Semitism in the U.S., whereby attacks increase during unrest in the Middle East. Domenech took issue with the article’s sub-headline, which was widely mocked by conservatives on social media: “Violent anti-Semitism spiked in America during the Israel-Hamas war. And we don’t know why.” “Some might conclude that the conflict between Israel and Palestine is the root cause,” said Domenech. “If you check Twitter the folks at Vox can’t seem to...
    A surfer's GoPro camera which fell into the sea after he got wiped out by a huge wave has been found buried on a beach by a passer-by five years later. Luke Batchelor, 32, from Berwick, Northumberland, had been walking along the banks of the River Tweed, near Spittal Beach, when he spotted the camera on May 26.  Despite being hidden under the sand for half a decade, the gadget's SD card was undamaged and showed the moment the camera had disappeared under the waves on April 23, 2016. Footage shows a group of surfers paddling out on their boards off the coast of Berwick as the surfer holding the camera says: 'Jesus Christ, I'm going to freeze my t*ts off! This is going to go well.'
    The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD is one of the most famous and deadly natural disasters in history. But the raging volcano snuffed out thousands of lives in Pompeii in just 15 minutes, according to a new study. The majority of victims died from asphyxiation by the giant cloud of scorching volcanic ash and gases the eruption released. Researchers believe most would have survived if the lethal plumes, known as pyroclastic flows, had only lasted a few minutes -but their modeling suggests the city was engulfed for almost 20 minutes. Scroll down for video The closeness of Herculaneum to Vesuvius meant residents had no hope. But researchers believe the inhabitants of Pompeii, which was miles away, could have survived if the toxic cloud of volcanic ash and gases from the eruption had lasted a shorter duration  In the first century, Pompeii was a thriving industrial hub with luxurious private villas. The eruption of Vesuvius on October 24, 79 AD, though, buried Pompeii and the nearby towns of Oplontis, Stabiae and Herculaneum under ash, mud and rock fragments. RELATED...
    Washington (CNN)Congressional Republicans are done with Donald Trump.Reeling from the one-two punch of losing the two Georgia Senate seats on Tuesday and what can only be described as a domestic terrorist attack by Trump supporters on the Capitol Wednesday, multiple Republican lawmakers tell CNN that the party needs to move on from the President. While GOP leadership has not yet embraced any plans to remove Trump from office in his final days, they have clearly begun to look beyond to the forthcoming Biden administration.Sen. John Thune of South Dakota, a member of the GOP leadership team, suggested that the President's actions and rhetoric were to blame for both costing Republicans their Senate majority and inciting his supporters to storm the Capitol on Wednesday."Our identity for the past several years now has been built around an individual," Thune told CNN. "You got to get back to where its built around a set of ideals and principles and policies."Getting back there may be easier said than done. Despite calls from a growing number of Republicans to remove Trump from office, it's unclear...
    A near-complete set of Roman armour has been discovered by archaeologists working in Germany. Experts working at Kalkriese, Germany, unearthed an entire cuirass belonging to a Roman soldier who belonged to one of three legions wiped out by Germanic tribesmen in 9 AD.  A cuirass is a piece of armour that protects the front and back of the torso made up of a breast and back plate.  A near-complete set of Roman armour (pictured) has been discovered by archaeologists working in Kalkriese, Germany The archaeological discovery is believed to be the oldest and most complete of its kind ever made The armour dates back to 9AD and is believed to have belonged to a Roman soldier involved in the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest Full set: The complete Roman cuirass discovered in Germany by archaeologists A cuirass is a piece of armour that protects the front and back of the torso made up of a breast and back plate The Times reports that the director of the museum at Kalkriese, Stefan Burmeister, thinks the armour belonged...
    The Indus Valley civilisation was wiped out by climate change, a new study claims.  What caused the demise of the once-great civilisation is a long-standing mystery, but researchers tracking historical monsoon patterns may have found an answer.  It is thought the society, which existed at the same time as ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, thrived in a period between two major shifts in monsoon patterns driven by climate change.  Monsoons spiked around 5,250 years ago when the planet cooled, and then a climate U-turn 2,000 years later saw monsoon numbers drop.  The Indus Valley Civilisation lived in a semi-arid region but the storms provided water to the Ghaggar–Hakra river system. Most indus settlements were located along this river network and relied on it for water, which was essential to their farming practices.   When it dried up, the society crumbled into oblivion.   Scroll down for video  This diagram shows the amount of Indus Valley settlements throughout its lifespan. By 3,300 years ago, the civilisation was in sharp decline and went extinct shortly afterwards  A mathematical model found that around 5,250 years...
