Dog feared to have cancer had actually eaten four teddy bears... but vet didn't realise until midway through operation 

Dog feared to have cancer had actually eaten four teddy bears... but vet didn't realise until midway through operation A dog feared to cancer had actually eaten four teddy bears, but the vet did not realise until halfway through the operation. Eight-year-old St Bernard Maisy was taken for a CT scan after she was taken ill, which showed a mass on her spleen and an unusually full stomach, seemingly showing she had not digested her food properly. Her owner, Jane Dickinson, from Dewsbury in West Yorkshire, feared the worst as she took her pet to Paragon Veterinary Referrals in Wakefield. It would not be unusual for Maisy, an elderly dog, to have cancer at her advanced age. However, vet surgeon Nick Blackburn ruled out any fatal disease when he carried out the operation to remove Maisy’s spleen and found her stomach was full of soft toys. Maisy is now reportedly 'loving life' Credit:  Paragon Vet Referrals / SWNS.com He said : "It's fair to say this was not something we were expecting to find! We all know certain dogs enjoy chewing things they shouldn't but managing to devour four full teddy bears is quite a feat. "I know Jane was worried about Maisy as she is quite old for a St Bernard, so we were naturally delighted the operation was such a success and we were able to return a happy, healthy dog to the Dickinsons.” Her owner said she had never seen the gentle giant chewing or eating toys, but that now the operation has been completed Maisy is “loving life”. An x-ray showing the teddy bears within the stomach. Credit: Paragon Vet Referrals / SWNS.com Ms Dickinson explained: "When Maisy went in I did think 'is she coming out?' but she is loving life now - it's like she's got her youth back. "The toys weren't even hers! She will steal the chihuahuas' toys and play with them but I've never seen her trying to chew them. Her eating habits had been completely normal. "I didn't even recognise one of the toys - my brother also keeps chihuahuas and it turns out it belonged to his dog." Maisy has since made a full recovery from her operation and a histology report has shown no signs of cancer.

Observers have suggested the strikes against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad could strengthen Trump's hand in talks, as they showed Kim that the West has the political will to back up its rhetoric -- as well as the capability for precise strikes launched from afar.

Smallville actress Allison Mack arrested in New York sex trafficking case

Smallville actress Allison Mack arrested in New York sex trafficking caseAn actress who starred in the US television series Smallville has been arrested on charges of sex trafficking. Allison Mack, 35, was accused of recruiting sex slaves for a self-help guru and helping to brand them with his initials. Mack featured in Smallville, a show about Clark Kent's childhood in Kansas before he becomes known as Superman, which ran from 2001 to 2011. The actress played Chloe Sullivan, one of the main character's best friends  She later became involved with a group called Nxivm - pronounced Nexium - which was promoted as a mentorship organisation for women with courses costing up to $5,000. The leader of the group was Keith Raniere, 57, who called himself "Vanguard" and presented himself as a guru to the stars. Prosecutors alleged that Mack was a "slave" of Raniere and recruited other female "slaves" for him, at times holding them down while a symbol bearing his initials was burned into the victims with a cauterising pen. At a brief hearing in a New York court Mack pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking. Actress Allison Mack attends the WB Network's 2002 Summer Party at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel on July 13, 2002 Credit:  Robert Mora/Getty Richard Donoghue, the prosecutor, said in a statement that Raniere had, over two decades, established Nxivm in Albany, New York and it had centres in the US, Mexico, Canada and South America. He said it was a pyramid scheme in which participants were encouraged to recruit others in order to rise in the system. Within Nxivm there was a secret society called "DOS" which was an acronym for a Latin phrase, loosely translating as "'Lord/Master of the Obedient Female Companions". It was also known as "The Vow". Those who were part of The Vow were referred to as "'slaves" and "masters".   Keith Raniere was arrested in March Credit: Youtube Mr Donoghue said: "Raniere stood alone at the top of the pyramid. Other than Raniere, all members were women. Mack is one of the women in the first level of the pyramid. "The victims were exploited, both sexually and for their labour, to the defendants' benefit." He said up to 50 women were recruited and forced to have sex with Raniere. They were placed on extreme diets and subjected to "readiness drills" in the middle of the night, which meant they were "seriously sleep-deprived:. On joining the secret society they had to provide "collateral" like naked photographs which could be sued used against them if they left, prosecutors said. Assistant US Attorney Moira Kim told the New York court: “Ms Mack was one of the top members of a highly organised scheme which was designed to provide sex to Raniere. "Under the guise of female empowerment she starved women until they fit her co-defendant's sexual ideal, and she targeted vulnerable women." Mack was due to appear in court again on Monday in another attempt to get bail. Nxivm has denied being a cult, and described itself on its website as being guided by "humanitarian principles that seek to empower people and answer important questions about what it means to be human". It attracted some high profile followers and during Mack's court hearing it was revealed she recently married a former Battlestar Galactica actress, the New York Post reported. Sean Buckley, a lawyer for Mack, said: "The allegations contained in the indictment are only that, allegations." Raniere was arrested last month in Mexico and charged with sex trafficking. He is being held without bail. Raniere, on the group's website, has denied "abusing, coercing or harming" anyone. Marc Agnifilo, a lawyer for Raniere, has said he is "confident" the allegations will be disproved.

Ex-FBI No. 2 alerted then-FBI chief Comey of plans to talk to press: lawyerBy Sarah N. Lynch WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe sent emails to then-Director James Comey alerting him he planned to push back against negative news coverage related to his oversight of probes into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, a lawyer for McCabe said on Friday. In an interview with reporters, Michael Bromwich said the emails could help clear McCabe of allegations by the Justice Department's internal watchdog that McCabe "lacked candor" with Comey by misleading him into thinking McCabe did not authorize disclosures to a newspaper to combat articles about his wife's political campaign and his role in overseeing an investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

'Flamboyant' jihadi linked to 9/11 terror cell captured by Kurdish forces in Syria

'Flamboyant' jihadi linked to 9/11 terror cell captured by Kurdish forces in SyriaA Syrian-German jihadist linked to the 9/11 attacks on the United States has been captured in Syria by US-backed forces, the Pentagon said on Thursday. Mohammad Haydar Zammar, who has been accused of recruiting some of the 9/11 Al-Qaeda hijackers, was captured over a month ago by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a Kurdish-led militia backed by the US. News of his capture was first reported on Wednesday by the Kurdish group. The Pentagon had said it was looking into the reports before confirming Zammar’s arrest. "We can confirm that Mohammad Haydar Zammar, a Syrian-born German national, was captured more than a month ago by SDF partners as part of their ongoing operations to defeat ISIS inside Syria," Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon said, using an alternate name for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). "We are working with our SDF partners to obtain additional details," Pahon said. The 9/11 Commission report into the attacks in Washington and New York that led to the deaths of almost 3,000 people described Zammar as an “outspoken, flamboyant Islamist” who “had fought in Afghanistan and relished any opportunity to extol the virtues of violent jihad.” According to the report, Zammar took credit for influencing people linked to the attacks including Mohammed Atta, who hijacked an American Airlines plane and flew it into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. Zammar had come into contact with Atta and others linked to the attacks while living in Hamburg, in 1997, the report says. Seven foiled UK terror plots Zammar was detained in Morocco in December 2001 in an operation involving CIA agents, and was handed over to the Syrian authorities two weeks later. He was subsequently sentenced to 12 years in prison in 2007 for belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood. He was reportedly freed from prison in 2014 in a prison swap organised with Islamist group Ahrar al-Sham. The SDF, which has been a key western ally in the fight against Isil, has detained several high-profile foreign members of Isil as the jihadist group’s grip on Syria has collapsed. They are currently holding two alleged members of the notorious Isil torture cell known as ‘the Beatles.’ El Shafee Elsheikh and Alexandra Kotey were captured by the group in February. The two are accused of being involved in the execution and torture of hostages. US officials believe there are hundreds of foreign fighters and thousands of Syrian Isil militants in SDF custody.

Now the company is expanding its horizons and the new licensed trio of classic Mustangs will become available from them from later this year.
