82nd Airborne calls out white supremacist for wearing their hat at Charlottesville

82nd Airborne calls out white supremacist for wearing their hat at CharlottesvilleWelcome to 2017, where white supremacists are being called out on Twitter by veterans for wearing disrespectful hats. Don't you miss the election now? After photos of the Charlottesville rally went viral this weekend, members of the 82nd Airborne Division discovered that one of the white supremacists at the rally was wearing their division's hat. The veterans rightly pointed out that supremacists probably shouldn't wear their hats, since, you know, the entire point of their division was to destroy Nazis like him. SEE ALSO: 80 totally benign things Trump condemned more harshly than neo-Nazis Irony, amirite? Would *LOVE* to know the name of Mr. 82nd Airborne Division here rendering Hitler's Nazi salute. The 82nd jumped into Normandy on D-Day. pic.twitter.com/oObJNgXzEI — Brandon Friedman (@BFriedmanDC) August 13, 2017 "Anyone can purchase that hat,” the 82nd Airborne wrote on Twitter. “Valor is earned.” The 82nd Airborne, an elite division, was critical to America's victory at Normandy. Their hats can easily be purchased online and on Amazon. Our WWII Airborne forefathers jumped into Europe to defeat Nazism. We know who we are. We know our legacy. — All American  (@82ndABNDiv) August 14, 2017 U really think that guy is an active member of the 82nd just because he has that hat? My mom has that same hat.

For all of his tough guy military fatigues, the man hasn't exactly given his life to defeat fascism — which many members of the 82nd division did.

The Daily Stormer helped organise the ultra-right wing rally where a car was driven into counter-demonstrators, killing the 32-year-old paralegal and hurting 19 other people. James Fields, 20, from Ohio, has been charged with murder.

How many nukes are in the world and what could they destroy?

How many nukes are in the world and what could they destroy?Tensions over nuclear weapons have been raised further after Donald Trump said North Korea will be met with "fire and fury like the world has never seen" after US intelligence concluded the rogue state has produced a miniaturised nuclear warhead.  This latest move comes amid increasing concern over North Korea's military capabilities, with the new US administration upping its rhetoric in response.  While the Pyongyang regime increases the frequency with which it is conducting missile tests, Donald Trump's defence secretary Jim 'Mad Dog' Mattis has previously warned North Korea of an "effective and overwhelming" response if Pyongyang used nuclear weapons. Elsewhere, rhetoric hints at a return of the expansion of nuclear arsenals across the world. In December, Russian President Vladimir Putin told a meeting of defence chiefs that strengthening nuclear capability should be a key objective for 2017. Donald Trump then took to Twitter to respond, vowing to do the same. The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 22, 2016 Such rhetoric has led to concerns about the world's nuclear capacity and the unpredictability of those in charge of the warheads. It seems the world is a long way from "coming to its senses" - with millions of kilotons already in military service around the world. Between them, the world's nuclear-armed states have around 15,000 warheads - the majority of which belong to the US and Russia. It is estimated that just under 10,000 of these are in military service, with the rest awaiting dismantlement, according to the Arms Control Association.  Putin says Russia should strengthen its nuclear arsenal 00:51 Which countries have nuclear weapons? There are five nuclear-weapon states in the world: China, France, Russia, United Kingdom and the United States. These are officially recognised as possessing such weapons by the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. This treaty acknowledges and legitimises their arsenals, but they are not supposed to build or maintain them forever. Indeed, they have committed to eliminate them.  There are also four other countries that have nuclear weapons: Pakistan, India, Israel and North Korea. These countries didn't sign the Treaty, and together possess an estimated 340 nuclear weapons.  But it's Russia and the US that have by far the most in the world - dominating all other countries by collectively sharing 88 per cent of the world's arsenal of stockpiled nukes. This figure increases to 93 per cent when we consider retired nukes.  How the world's 15,000 nukes are divided How deadly could these nuclear weapons be? The world's current collection of 14,900 nuclear weapons possesses enough power to kill millions of people and flatten dozens of cities.  According to Telegraph research, it is estimated that the US and Russian arsenals combined have power equating to 6,600 megatons. This is a tenth of the total solar energy received by Earth every minute. According to the NukeMap website, the dropping of the B-83, the largest bomb in the current US arsenal, would kill 1.4m people in the first 24 hours. A further 3.7m people would be injured, as the thermal radiation radius reached 13.km.  Likewise, the "Tsar Bomba" is the largest USSR bomb tested. If this bomb was dropped on New York, it is estimated that it could kill 7.6m people and injure 4.2m more. The nuclear fallout could reach an approximate area of 7,880km on a 15mph wind, impacting millions more people.  Both America and Russia's arsenals are regulated by several treaties that place limits on the numbers and kinds of warheads and delivery systems they have.   If either country were to expand their nuclear capacity even further, as Trump and Putin have hinted at, it could shatter these agreements and plunge the world into a new Cold War. North Korean missile ranges Our figures on nuclear weapons, based on statistics from the Arms Control Association, are mainly estimates because of the secretive nature with which most governments treat information about their arsenals.

Uber wins U.S. court appeal to push price-fixing case to arbitration

Uber wins U.S. court appeal to push price-fixing case to arbitrationBy Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - Uber Technologies Inc on Thursday won a victory in its effort to keep unhappy customers from suing in court, persuading a federal appeals court to send a Connecticut passenger's price-fixing case against the ride-service company into arbitration. Overturning a lower court ruling, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan said Uber and former Chief Executive Officer Travis Kalanick properly notified customers in online user agreements that disputes should be arbitrated. By a 3-0 vote, the appeals court also said the Connecticut passenger, Spencer Meyer, could not sue Uber in court despite claiming he never agreed to waive that right.

General Joe Dunford, the chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff, also told reporters during his visit to Beijing that the US has no plans to "dial back" military exercises with South Korea, which have angered both China and North Korea.

Spain must raze all vegetation on Mallorca to combat 'olive tree ebola' says EU report

Spain must raze all vegetation on Mallorca to combat 'olive tree ebola' says EU reportThe Spanish island of Mallorca could be virtually razed of vegetation under an EU plan to halt the march of a deadly bacteria known as “ebola of the olive”, farmers in the region have warned. The bacteria Xylella fastidiosa, which has infected thousands of olive trees in southern Italy, is now raging across the Balearic Islands with carrier species multiplying, according to a recent assessment by the European Union. In July, it was detected for the first time on the Spanish mainland in almond trees in Alicante, raising fears it could wreak havoc in the world's largest producer of olive oil. The EU and the Balearics government are now discussing a containment plan which could force eradication of all vegetation within a 100 metre radius of infected plants, Spain’s El Confidential newspaper reported. With infections confirmed at 156 separate points across Mallorca, agricultural groups say the measure would mean the almost complete destruction of the island’s plant life. Spain is the world's largest producer of olive oil Credit: PAUL GROVER “If we comply with what Europe is asking us, it would be starting to fell at one end of the island and finishing at the other. I don’t know if eradicating all the plant life is the solution, but I am sure that, in Mallorca, this is impossible to apply,” Gonzalo Rodríguez, head of the Camp Mallorquí cooperative of 1,000 producers, told the paper. The Balearics authorities had won a reprieve from the eradication measure after the bacteria was detected on the islands late last year, arguing that it would be a “disaster” for the local environment. The bacteria, which can infect some 300 species, was first discovered in a cherry tree in a Mallorca garden centre in October. After tests elsewhere on the Balearic Islands came back positive, the local government declared the entire archipelago an outbreak zone, banned the export of live plants and began destroying infected specimens. But a June assessment by the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA) came back with alarming news: the response had been too limited, and even with the total application of EU measures, eradication will now be “very difficult” to achieve. The number of carrier plants was also growing, it said, now taking around a dozen species including grape vines, almond and plum trees and lavender. In Alicante, local authorities and agricultural groups have backed eradication as the only option. But resistance among some farmers is growing: last week protesters blocked machinery brought in to fell trees around an infected plant, El Confidencial reported.

Trump praises N.Korean leader's decision not to fire missiles towards Guam

Trump praises N.Korean leader's decision not to fire missiles towards GuamBy Ben Blanchard and Tim Kelly BEIJING/TOKYO (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday praised North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for a "wise" decision not to fire missiles towards the U.S. territory of Guam, which has eased escalating tension between the two countries. Reclusive North Korea has made no secret of its plan to develop a missile capable of firing a nuclear warhead at the United States to counter what it perceives as constant U.S. threats of invasion. Trump warned North Korea last week it would face "fire and fury" if it threatened the United States, prompting North Korea to say it was considering plans to fire missiles towards the Pacific island of Guam.

Scary video shows a bear charging a dog in Alaska

Scary video shows a bear charging a dog in AlaskaA mama black bear was caught on camera charging a Siberian husky at a campground in Alaska.  The recently released clip, from a campground in Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, shows a bear and her three cubs approaching a trailer from the woods on July 5. When the bear spots the dog it delivers a bluff charge, and the bear and husky get into a brief fight off camera. A woman can then be heard yelling at the bear, which returns to its cubs and runs away.  Tom Henderson, who uploaded the video earlier this month, said in an email that his wife is the person heard yelling in the clip. Fortunately, the dog was unharmed in the scuffle, despite its screams. Henderson also said that bear sightings are not uncommon in the camp, though they have not had a problem like this before. Unfortunate interactions between humans and wildlife are unfortunately common in the area. In June a man was mauled after brown bear with a sow got defensive.  Mashable has reached out to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game for additional information.

'I'm terrified': White nationalist Christopher Cantwell cries in video about Charlottesville protest

'I'm terrified': White nationalist Christopher Cantwell cries in video about Charlottesville protestA white nationalist who was featured in a Vice News documentary about the "Unite the Right" Charlottesville marchers at the weekend has posted a video in which he tearfully complains about his current plight. Christopher Cantwell took part in the rally in support of Confederate hero Robert E Lee in Virginia on Saturday, which escalated to violence and ended in the death of a woman.  “I have been told there’s a warrant out for my arrest,” he said while crying on the video. “With everything that’s happening, I don’t think it’s very wise for me to go anywhere. There’s a state of emergency. The National Guard is here!” “I want to be peaceful. I want to be law-abiding. That was the whole entire point of this,” Cantwell continues. “I’m watching CNN talk about this as a violent, white nationalist protest. We have done everything in our power to keep this peaceful!” he added. He also said urged police to contact him if there was a warrant out for his arrest. “I am armed, I do not want violence with you. I’m terrified, I’m afraid you’re going to kill me, I really am,” he said. “If I gotta go to jail today, you know it won’t be the f------* first time… I honestly believe I have been law-abiding. I have been engaged in violence, I have, there’s no question about it and I’ve done nothing to hide that but it was in defence of myself and others and I would not have done it for any other reason,” he added. Cantwell was banned from Facebook and Instagram on Wednesday, while a page connected to his podcast was removed. Facebook spokeswoman Ruchika Budhraja also said at least eight pages connected to the white nationalist movement were taken down over what Budhraja said were violations on the company's polices on hate speech and organisations. Cantwell, of Keene, New Hampshire, was listed on rally flyers and labelled an extremist by the Southern Poverty Law Centre. A former information technology worker who moved to New Hampshire from New York in 2012, the 36-year-old Cantwell describes himself as a white nationalist and said he voted for President Donald Trump. He has a podcast and blog that promote his views. Cantwell says Facebook shut down his account in an attempt to silence him for his views. He also said his PayPal account had been closed. The company wouldn't confirm that because it has a policy of not commenting on the status of accounts. "I'm not surprised by almost any of this because the whole thing we are complaining about here is that we are trying to express our views, and everybody is going through extraordinary lengths to make sure we are not heard," Cantwell told AP in a phone interview from an undisclosed location. "Frankly, whatever you think of my views, that is very scary to me," he said.
