Body cam: murder suspect is stopped by cop, pulls out knife and begs officer to kill him - TomoNews
 
02:25
CINCINNATI — Intense body cam footage from a police officer in Ohio has been released of a near-deadly incident that took place along Interstate 75 on March 29. The footage captures the moment a man reportedly wanted for homicide attempts to stab a cop, gets shot by the cop, and then begs the cop to finish him off. Javier Pablo Aleman was wanted in Baltimore after allegedly stabbing and killing his roommate, 51-year-old Victor Adolfo Serrano, on March 17. The cop wearing the bodycam sure doesn’t have a clue who he’s talking to, but he seems to know something’s not quite right. When questioned, Aleman tells the officer he just got off the bus from Dayton, Ohio, and is waiting for someone to come pick him up. Aleman says he has no ID on him. When asked for a name, the shady-looking character stutters, then says his name is Carlos. Officer Josh Hilling doesn’t quite buy it, and lets him know he’s going to have to subject him to a routine pat down, to make sure he’s got no weapons on him. Unfortunately, Aleman does indeed have a weapon on him, and decides to pull out an eight-inch knife. Aleman threatens Officer Hilling with the knife, apparently not very interested in getting busted. Reacting to the weapon, Officer Hilling shoots Aleman in the abdomen, but that doesn’t stop him. Brandishing the knife, Aleman repeatedly asks the cop to kill him. Officer Hilling instead continues to plead with him, asking Aleman to please drop the blade. Though faced with an aggressive crook wielding a deadly weapon, Hilling resists pulling the trigger again, hoping to calm the man down. Hilling’s backup finally arrives, and after several minutes of heated negotiations, Aleman gives himself up and allows the officers to arrest him. The incident took place on March 29, and Aleman has been in hospital recovering from his lone gunshot wound ever since. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Ocean cleaning machine: Australian surfers quit jobs, invent Seabin to clean up ocean - TomoNews
 
01:25
PERTH, AUSTRALIA — Two Australia surfers are gaining the attention from investors around the world for their invention of a device that helps clean the ocean, according to Australia's ABC News. ABC News reports that Andrew Turton and Pete Ceglinski, who are best friends, became frustrated over the amount of trash that was floating in the ocean. They decided to quit their jobs to come up with a sustainable solution to the problem of ocean pollution, and invented the Seabin. The Seabin is an automated rubbish bin designed to be mounted on marina docks to help clean the water. According to the duo's company website, the Seabin, which is built from recycled materials, is mounted to a dock and connected to water pump that is powered by an source on the shore. The pump pulls water through the Seabin, thus bringing all the floating rubbish and debris in the water into a natural fibre bag inside the device before water is pumped back out. The floating debris is captured inside the Seabin, and water flows out through the bottom of the bin and pulled up into the pump on the dock. There is also an option to attach an oil and water separating device to the water pump to clean the water before it is returned to the ocean. "It essentially works as a similar concept to a skimmer box from your pool filter. But it's designed on a scale to work and essentially attract all that rubbish within a location within a marine harbour," said Seabin spokesperson Richard Talmage, as quoted by ABC News. ABC News reports that the duo designed a prototype of the bin in Perth before taking it to market in Mallorca in Spain, a marina capital of Europe. A crowdfunding effort has already raised $50,000 for commercial production of the Seabin, and a video of the device has attracted more than 10 million hits online. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Theme park accident: Father and son severely burned on hot metal slide ride in Utah - TomoNews
 
01:45
PARK CITY, UTAH — A family’s summer vacation went horribly awry after a day at the theme park turned into a hellish nightmare. Kenny Edwards and his son suffered severe burns while on a slide at Utah’s Olympic Park, and believe the park’s management is not giving riders enough warning about the slide’s dangers, according to a Facebook page the family set up about their ordeal. On July 3, Edwards and his 4-year-old son were going down the Alpine slide when the sled they were on stopped at a turn and sent them tumbling onto the hot metal. Edwards grabbed the edge of the hot slide and managed to maneuver his son into his lap, but didn’t realize the severity of his burns until the boy pointed them out to him. The skin on his hands had peeled off, and the flesh underneath was red and raw. Edwards got off the slide and flagged down another rider to help bring his son down, reports KUTV. The kind stranger delivered the severely injured boy to his waiting mother. The Texas father of two eventually made it down the slide on the defective sled, with third-degree burns all over his body. The hot metal cooked parts of his leg, elbow and almost 90 percent of his backside. Riders are told beforehand not to touch the hot slide, but aren’t informed that doing so could result in severe injuries. The family is now seeking to get the park to give more explicit warnings about the slide, especially as visitors are required to sign waivers assuming responsibility for any injury or death. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Grizzly bear attack: Bear snaps hiker’s arm - he then walks 3 miles to his car - TomoNews
 
02:11
MADISON VALLEY, MONTANA — A grizzly bear attack in Bear Creek almost killed a man. Somehow, he miraculously survived, walked three miles and drove himself nearly 20 more miles to the nearest hospital. Todd Orr says he was walking along a hiking trail scouting for elk when he spotted a mother grizzly bear and her two cubs. When the mother charged at Todd, he tried hitting her with bear spray from 25 feet away, but she ran through the mist and took him to the ground. He tried to lay as motionless as possible while the bear had her way with him, biting him on the shoulders, arms and backpack. At some point she must’ve got bored and left, so Todd tried to get to his car. About 10 minutes later, the bear returned for another attack. This time, she bit him so hard on his forearm, it cracked the bone. Surprisingly, after a few more bites, the crazed sow gave pause and walked away. Stunned, Todd got up, thanked God and made a video of his account, which he later posted to Facebook. The video has accumulated more than 30 million views in less than two days. After driving himself 17 miles to the hospital, it took them eight hours to stitch Todd back together. Fortunately, he’s expected to make a full recovery. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Chinese tourist behaving badly: woman’s rants at Chinese tourist in Thailand goes viral - TomoNews
 
04:40
PHUKET, THAILAND — This Beijing woman, known as “Sister Bin,” is perhaps fsat becoming the world’s favorite Chinese tourist. Why? Because she had the audacity to call out her greedy fellow Chinese tourists for trying to take home a piece of wood from Lover’s Beach in Phuket, Thailand. In the three-minute video that Sister Bin posted on her Weibo page, she described an incident in which a woman from Jiangsu tried to take a large piece of wood home from the beach, despite the fact that the tour guides had told her multiple times that she was not allowed to do so. Sister Bin told the audience that she took it upon herself to tell the tour guide to report the offending woman to customs. Sister Bin then went on cursing and swearing about how Chinese tourists often disrespect other countries’ laws and treat every place like their own homes. This made Sister Bin an instant internet celebrity, helping her amass almost 5,000 followers on Weibo and over 6,000 followers on Facebook. She also seems to be determined to continue her mission to monitor the behaviour of Chinese tourists around the world. Go Sister Bin! We support you! ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Little blue penguins: underpass built for world’s smallest penguins to cross NZ road - TomoNews
 
01:32
OAMARU, NEW ZEALAND — Little blue penguins crossing man-made roads often get killed doing so. Now, an underpass in a small town has been constructed to allow the penguins a stress-free passageway. The world’s smallest penguins, the blue-feathered kororās live across New Zealand’s North and South Island coastlines, as well as across the southern coast of Australia. By the water, they typically forage for food, which they then must transport back to their nests for their baby chicks to eat. The penguins only come ashore after dark, but humans have made the trip a dangerous one, with cars being a nightly threat. The penguins in Oamaru are regularly observed making the trek across the coastal road, and cars are often held up while hundreds of the flightless birds pass. To remedy the situation, the town council, tourism board and several local businesses came together to build the penguins an underpass — a tunnel stretching from the harbor all the way to their colony. The project was completed in September, and now, tourists and bird enthusiasts are flocking to watch them scurry across. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Boeing 787 Dreamliner: Secret rest cabin for pilots and flight attendants revealed - TomoNews
 
01:41
CHICAGO — The secret compartments where cabin crew rest on board long-haul flights have been revealed in photos online. Photographs of secret rest cabins for pilots and flight attendants on Boeing’s flagship 787 Dreamliner were published by Australian website News.com.au. On a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the pilot’s rest cabin is usually positioned behind the cockpit and above the first class compartment. The stairway is disguised behind a security-coded door. The cabin usually has one business class seat and two bunk beds, separated by thick curtains to give the pilots a small amount of privacy. The rest cabin for flight attendants is usually located at the rear of the plane, just above the economy passenger compartment. Depending on the design of each plane, a compartment can usually accommodate at least five flight attendants. Even though some crew members complain that it feels like sleeping in a coffin, posters commenting on the story on Twitter wondered if similar rest cabins could be designed for passengers too. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Laser propulsion: NASA's laser-powered spacecraft will fly to Mars in 72 hours - TomoNews
 
01:41
SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA — NASA scientist Philip Lubin is working on perfecting laser technology that could propel a light spacecraft to Mars in as little as three days. In order for spacecraft to achieve faster speeds, Lubin proposes using an electromagnetic propulsion system that uses light and radiation, rather than the current fuel-based rocket propulsion system. Photonic propulsion is a theoretical system that uses the energy and momentum from photons to move objects through space. According to Wired, when photons from a laser array reflect off an object, their energy is translated into a push that's capable of moving objects like a spacecraft. The system would currently work best with robotic spacecraft. According to Lubin, a robotic probe with a thin reflective sail could travel to Mars in three days. On the other hand, a manned shuttle could reach Mars in a month using the laser-based system. He estimates that lasers could accelerate spacecraft to 30 percent the speed of light, which was previously unheard of. Using photonic propulsion, interstellar travel may be possible and sending a probe to Earth's closest star, Alpha Centauri, could take as little as 15 years, reported Space.com. In comparison, our current technology takes four to eight months to get to Mars. It took 37 years for the Voyager 1 spacecraft to reach the edge of our solar system. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Smart Floating Farm: Forward Thinking Architecture’s invention could help feed the world - TomoNews
 
02:02
BARCELONA, SPAIN — A Barcelona-based company has developed a solar powered floating farm system that could ease growing food demand around the world. Smart Floating Farms, otherwise known as SFF, was developed by Forward Thinking Architecture. The idea was inspired by traditional grid-shape fish farms in Asia. The structure is 200 meters wide and 350 meters long, which is roughly the size of 6 football fields. They can be connected to form a cluster of modules. The floating farm has three levels: the top level is installed with photovoltaic panels to harvest sunlight for electricity and it has rainwater collectors for irrigation purposes; second level serves as a greenhouse for the vegetables, which are grown without soil under the hydroponic system; and the ground level is used as a fish farm on the open sea, as well as a fish egg hatchery, a slaughterhouse and a storage room for the fish. All the modules are centrally controlled by software via Cloud technology. The production data will be analysed and can be used to make comparisons on food needs for specific cities. Each SFF is estimated to have a maximum production of 8.152 tons of vegetables and 1.703 tons of fish per year. The floating farms are ideal for densely populated cities near coastal areas such as Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo, Singapore and Hong Kong. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Typhoon turbine: Japanese engineer develops wind turbine to harness power from typhoon - TomoNews
 
01:45
TOKYO — A Japanese engineer has designed a new type of wind turbine that he believes would be able to harness power from typhoons. Atsushi Shimizu founded a tech company called Challenergy in 2013 and invented a wind turbine that not only can draw power from the force of wind, but can stay functional during typhoons. The typhoon turbine consists of three vertical blades and a central rod. It has an omnidirectional axis so that it can respond to wind coming from every direction. Instead of driven by a propeller, the turbine makes use of the principle of the Magnus effect: air curves when passing by a rotating object, and the downward deflection of the air-flow produces a lifting force that counteracts the force of gravity, enabling the object to remain airborne. The blades are controlled by the central rod, which can be tightened to slow down, or stop the blades regardless of the external forces. Under normal circumstances, the typhoon turbine can achieve about 30 percent efficiency while conventional wind turbine can achieve 40 percent, ScienceAlert reported. However, conventional wind turbines could be damaged by typhoons while the typhoon turbine would be able to function normally. "Japan actually has a lot more wind power than it does solar power, it's just not utilized," Shimizu told CNN. "Japan has the potential to be a super power of wind.” According to the Japan Guide, about seven or eight typhoons pass over Okinawa prefecture each year, with about three hitting its main islands. Shimizu believes a single typhoon could generate enough energy to power Japan for 50 years. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Road rage incident turns into fist fight in Walmart parking lot - TomoNews
 
15:09
DENVER — Video footage captured a road rage confrontation that led to a fist fight outside a Walmart in Colorado on June 17. Devin Jones was reportedly riding his motorcycle through a neighborhood in Denver, when he noticed a white sedan speed by him. Jones decided to pursue the sedan, which sped through the streets, zipping around other vehicles and on wrong side of the road. Jones captured the entire incident on his helmet camera, writing that he wanted to follow the guy just to see his face. But, when the sedan’s driver outmaneuvered and out-crazied Jones, the motorcyclist abandoned his chase … or so he thought. After giving up, Jones decided to test out some tires in a dirt lot, and noticed the same speed devil pass by. He followed the vehicle into a Walmart parking lot. Jones confronted the driver, who had a female passenger in the vehicle, asking him why he was in such a hurry, to which the driver explained, “Yo momma f***ed me good.” After the two spent a few minutes exchanging insults, the driver began touching Jones’ motorcycle. When Jones asked him not to, the driver makes a point to touch the bike again. That’s when Jones made his own point by shoving the driver away. The two spar for a few minutes, with Jones getting in a few good punches and shoves before Walmart officials and passersby interrupt. “I should have left it alone but instead I confronted him and let anger make me look like a complete asshole,” Jones wrote about the incident. “I thought it was common knowledge not to hit a motorcycle in front of its lover... owner.” ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Future green technology: new solar panels could generate electricity from raindrops - TomoNews
 
01:28
YUNNAN, CHINA — Scientists in China are producing solar panels that can produce energy from the last source you'd expect — rainwater. In a study published in the journal Angewandte Chemie, researchers in China introduced a new type of solar panel that adds a layer of graphene, or carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb structure, to dye-sensitized solar cells. A flexible layer of indium tin oxide and plastic is included underneath. Graphene has unusual properties that allow electrons to move freely throughout the entire layer. According to the researchers, rainwater contains positively charged ions like ammonium, calcium and sodium. When water binds to the panel's surface, a double-layer of positive ions and negatively charged electrons is created, which ends up producing a voltage and current. Tests of the new solar panels have been able to produce hundreds of microvolts, which is small even compared to a standard AA battery, reports Quartz. The solar-to-electric energy conversion stood at about 7 percent, which is much lower than the 20 percent energy conversion achieved by the best solar panels on the market. So there's a long way to go before the new solar panels become more widely used. But more efficient future versions could mean big things for the solar industry. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

ISIS attack: Trapped Russian soldier calls airstrike on himself to kill ISIS fighters - TomoNews
 
01:27
PALMYRA, SYRIA — A transcript of the final communications between soldier Alexander Prokhorenko and Russian Special Forces has been released, detailing the final moments before his called in his own death, trapped in ISIS territory. Prokhorenko was stationed near Palmyra, Syria, in charge of directing airstrikes on ISIS targets. Alone, he suddenly realized he was dangerously low on ammunition and surrounded by terrorists, with no possible escape route. He radioed his commander to communicate his dire situation, and instructed him to go ahead with airstrikes, taking out ISIS jihadists along with his own life in the resulting attack. According to the transcript, Prokhorenko's words were "I am surrounded, they are outside, I don't want them to take me and parade me, conduct the airstrike, they will make a mockery of me and this uniform." His commander refused, ordering Prokhorenko to get to safety before any such command would be ordered. The brave Prokhorenko told him "I want to die with dignity and take all these bastards with me. Please, my last wish, conduct the airstrike, they will kill me either way." His commander acknowledged his plight, ordering in the airstrikes, and sealing Prokhorenko's fate. In his final transmission, he thanked his commander, said he had "the best wife in the world," and was serving the nation he loved. His wife, Ekaterina, was reportedly unaware that her husband was even serving in Syria.

SeaWorld killer whale: Morgan, orca who was once free, beaches herself after performing - TomoNews
 
01:56
TENERIFE, SPAIN — Morgan the orca whale has endured a rough few years after being rescued from the waters near the Netherlands back in 2010. A video released this week shows the young whale beaching herself, leading many to believe she was attempting to commit suicide. Found severely emaciated and dying in 2010, a local theme park known as Dolfinarium Harderwijk was able to acquire a “rescue, rehabilitate and release” permit from the Dutch government that would allow her to be taken in. After months of rehab, Morgan was brought back to full health. Rather than send her back to the wild as promised though, she was taught tricks and kept in small tanks over the course of 18 months. Eventually she was sent over to another theme park in Spain called Loro Parque, which happens to be owned by SeaWorld. Activist organizations have reported that since she’s been there, Morgan’s been forced to perform for the public, and is constantly subjected to sexual pressure by male orca whales, even though she’s believed to be very young. The video, which was recorded on May 16 and released by Ric O’Barry’s Dolphin Project, shows Morgan beaching herself on a concrete ledge after a performance in the Canary Islands. According to witnesses, she waited there for more than ten minutes. While many are speculating the act was a suicide attempt, other experts are not so sure, saying she may have instead been trying to escape from other orcas bullying her. A video, released earlier this year, shows Morgan banging her head against the gates of a medical pool she was in. Dolphin Project claims she was trying to escape the pool, as she was being held in with another male whale. Loro Parque says those claims are exaggerated, and that Morgan was instead releasing pent up sexual energy. Morgan was the first wild orca brought into captivity in roughly 25 years, which makes her invaluable to captive breeding programs. In March of this year, SeaWorld announced the end to captive breeding at their U.S. parks, but the same agreement is not in place for its international parks. Organizations like Dolphin Project and the Free Morgan Foundation continue to work against Morgan’s captors, so that one day, she may once again swim free.

ATM skimming: How to spot an ATM skimmer - TomoNews
 
01:35
NEW YORK — This animation explains the practice of automatic teller machine (ATM) skimming, a common form of fraud that involves a compromised ATM that allows criminals to access bank accounts. According a survey published in April 2016, such incidents increased 546% from 2014 to 2015 in the United States. The data came from financial analytics company FICO and FICO Card Alert Service software, which also states that 60% of the incidents took place at non-bank ATMs. ATM skimming usually employs two separate components. First, a fake card reader is fitted onto the ATM’s card slot. It scans and stores the information on the card’s magnetic strip as it slides through. Then, a pinhole camera hidden on or near the ATM records the PIN entered on the keypad. Alternatively, a fake keypad is placed on top of the real one to record the digits entered. To avoid becoming victim to skimming fraud, one must check for any objects mounted on the ATM or near it. Comparing the ATM being used to another nearby can help spot suspicious differences. Examine any mounted parts by pulling them to see whether they are securely attached. Feel the keypad for its sensitivity and check whether it was placed on top of a real one. The research also reports that 60% of incidents took place at non-bank ATMs. You might want to avoid using ATMs in malls, for instance, and stick with those located outside or inside your bank. According to PCMag, one should examine any mounted parts by pulling them to see if they are securely attached. Also, try to feel the keypad for its sensitivity and check if it was placed on top of a real one. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Dental disaster? Michigan woman dies after getting 16 teeth pulled at the dentist - TomoNews
 
01:19
SOUTHFIELD, MICHIGAN — A Michigan woman passed away last Friday after she had 16 teeth removed in one go during a trip to the dentist to treat an infection. April Walters, 46, who was reliant on an oxygen machine because of health problems, was feeling anxious about a trip to the dentist. According to Fox 2 Detroit, Walters suffered from sarcoidosis, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary high blood pressure as well as diabetes. Prior to the procedure, Walters had a heart rate of 130 bpm, spurring a dental assistant at Southfield Dental Care to suggest waiting for Walters' heart rate to come down before they continued with the procedure. The dentist, however, allegedly didn't think waiting was necessary, Walters' daughter told Fox 2 Detroit. After the dentist pulled 16 out of the 18 teeth that Walters needed to have pulled, the dentist decided to stop for the day. She then advised Walters to go to the hospital because Walters' heart rate was still so high. Shortly after Walters' sister and her brother-in-law arrived to pick her up from the dentist office, Walters started to have trouble breathing and passed out. It was assumed that her oxygen tank had run out, so they ran into the office to get more oxygen. However, that didn't help and Walters could not be revived, reported Fox 2 Detroit. An autopsy will be done and the dentist's office is currently investigating the incident in order to understand how a woman died so suddenly on their doorstep. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Space elevator would climb incredible 20-kilometer tower in ambitious Canadian plan
 
01:42
PEMBROKE, ONTARIO, CANADA — A Canadian space company wants to build a space elevator that reaches 20 kilometers high. The company is called Thoth and the concept is called the Thoth X tower. The idea is to build a tower with reinforced inflatable sections. The middle is hollow. An elevator car would encircle the tower until it reaches the top. Thoth estimates the tower would cost $5 billion to construct. As a demonstration project, it would build a precursor tower measuring 1.5 kilometers tall. One feature of the project is the wind farm about three quarters of the way up. The 50 turbines could produce 1 gigawatt of continuous energy. That’s enough to power about 700,000 homes. The main purpose of the tower is to provide a take-off and landing platform for spacecraft. If your aircraft takes off at a 20 kilometer altitude, you can get to space in a single stage without the need for additional fuel stages. Thoth estimates this would save 30% on energy costs. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Florida sinkhole reveals that we've been wrong about when the first Americans arrived - TomoNews
 
02:04
TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA — A collection of fossils and artifacts retrieved from a sinkhole in a river on Florida's Gulf Coast may provide some of the oldest evidence of human presence in North America. The Page-Ladson archaeological site, submerged 35 feet under Florida's Aucilla River, was the site of several digs in the 1980s and 1990s. A new team that included researchers from Florida State University and Texas A&M University decided to follow up on decades-old research between 2012 and 2014. After more than a hundred dives into the sinkhole, the team published their findings last week in the journal Science Advances. The researchers discovered mastodon bones, fossilized dung and stone tools in the sinkhole that provide compelling evidence that humans spread across North America far earlier than archaeologists previously thought. According to their research paper, the stone tools recovered from the sinkhole include a biface, a stone that's been manually sharpened on both ends. On a previous excavation at the site, archaeologists found an adult mastodon tusk that appeared to have human-made grooves along its surface, reported the Christian Science Monitor. Prehistoric humans called the Clovis culture were believed to have originally arrived in North America via a land bridge about 13,000 years ago — as mammoth bones and spearheads have revealed. However, according to the Guardian, some of the artifacts recently discovered within the Aucilla River date back to more than 14,550 years ago when the land bridge may not have existed. What these new discoveries suggest is that a land bridge from Siberia may not be the answer to how the first humans initially colonized North America. Moreover, evidence suggests that people were in North America before the Clovis. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Concealed carry shooting: T-mobile clerk shoots two robbers in Chicago - TomoNews
 
01:21
CHICAGO — A cellphone store clerk with a concealed carry permit shot two suspected robbers on Wednesday after they pulled out guns. The incident is the second report in a week of a Chicago store worker shooting would-be robbers. The two male suspects, aged 24 and 35, walked into the T-Mobile store on the city's South Side at around 11 a.m., according to the Chicago Tribune. They pretended to shop for a few minutes before pulling out guns. Neither suspect fired a shot, however, witnesses told Chicago radio station WLS. Instead, a store employee shot the 24-year-old suspect in the left arm and abdomen, while his alleged accomplice took bullets to his left arm and groin, police said, according to the Chicago Tribune. The two suspects fled and escaped in a car as the store clerk chased them and called police with their descriptions. The suspects drove to a nearby hospital where police caught them, the Chicago Tribune reported. The store, an independent T-Mobile dealer, had been robbed several times in the past month, neighbors told WLS. T-Mobile district manager Neil Tadros said he hoped employees with weapons and concealed carry permits would act as a deterrent. "Thank God for concealed carry," he told the Chicago Tribune. The incident follows the fatal shooting of two teenagers by an employee as they attempted to rob a Chicago liquor store on Saturday. A police spokesman said he did not anticipate charges would be filed against the clerk in that case, the Chicago Tribune reported. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Cryonics gives the terminally ill hope of a second chance at life - TomoNews
 
02:25
CLINTON TOWNSHIP, MICHIGAN — A landmark British court ruling that a 14-year-old girl who died of cancer should have her body cryogenically frozen has once again put the spotlight on the controversial process known as cryonics. Britain’s High Court ruled in October that the girl had the right to be cryogenically frozen after her parents disagreed about whether she should undergo the process, the Telegraph reported. Cryonics is a procedure that preserves the human body at low temperatures after death in the hope it can be revived in the future. The process must begin within two minutes of a person being declared legally dead. Although the heart has stopped beating, there is still some brain function during this period, so a heart-lung resuscitator is used to stabilize the body and keep the brain supplied with blood and oxygen. An anticoagulant is injected into the body to stop the blood clotting during transit. The body is then packed in ice and transported to a cryonics facility. Once there, a process called vitrification begins, where the blood is replaced with a cryoprotectant antifreeze fluid. This is done to prevent the cells from freezing and to stop ice crystals from forming around the organs at extremely low temperatures. The body is then placed on a bed of dry ice until it cools to -130 degrees Celsius. Once cooled sufficiently, the body is transferred to an individual container, which is in turn lowered into a larger metal tank that’s filled with liquid nitrogen to keep the temperature at -196 degrees Celsius. Between four and six bodies are typically held in the tanks. Bodies are stored with the heads facing down to ensure the brain stays immersed in freezing liquid even in the event of a leak in the container. Approval to build a cryonics center in Australia was granted in late November. Russia is currently the only country outside the United States to host cryonics facilities. Around 350 people have been cryogenically frozen since the 1960s, including several notable scientists and the baseball legend Ted Williams, according to the Telegraph. However, the technology to revive someone who has been cryogenically frozen does not exist and there is no proof that it ever will. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Chinese billionaire hiding 6% of world’s aluminium in Mexico desert to game NAFTA - TomoNews
 
01:39
SAN JOSE ITURBIDE, MEXICO — One of China’s richest men has been linked to a massive stockpile of aluminum in the Mexican desert that U.S. aluminum executives say is part of a scheme to game the global trade system, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal. The stockpile was discovered two years ago when aluminum executive Jeff Henderson hired a pilot to shoot aerial photos of a factory near the town of San Jose Iturbide, 500 miles south of the Mexican border with Texas, the Wall Street Journal reported. There, the pilot found a stockpile of nearly one million metric tons of aluminum, or roughly 6 percent of the world’s total inventory, according to the the Wall Street Journal’s report. Rerouting Chinese aluminum through Mexico into the U.S. allows Chinese companies to benefit from the North American Free Trade Agreement between Canada, Mexico and the U.S., which eliminates most of the tariffs on products traded among the three countries. According to the Wall Street Journal, Chinese billionaire Liu Zhongtian, the chairman of China Zhongwang Holdings, has denied the allegations. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Plane lands in wrong country: AirAsia X flight to KL lands in Melbourne after nav error - TomoNews
 
01:43
SYDNEY — An Australian aviation investigation report has revealed how an AirAsia X flight bound for Malaysia last year accidentally flew to Melbourne instead of its Asian hub after a navigational error. The AirAsia X Airbus A330 was scheduled to fly from Sydney to Kuala Lumpur. Australian authorities say the plane’s captain manually copied the gate coordinates displayed on a sign outside the cockpit window into the flight management guidance system. As he accidentally omitted a zero, the system located the plane near Cape Town, South Africa. Both the captain and the first officer heard several chimes as they prepared for takeoff. They chose to ignore the alerts because there were no other abnormal indications. Immediately after takeoff, an audible alert sounded, warning of terrain in the plane’s flightpath. Not seeing any obstacles, the pilots ignored the warning. The plane had already deviated from its supposed departure flight path and crossed the paths of other aircraft. An airport traffic control officer noticed the deviation and contacted the pilots. Only then did they realize the GPS error on their navigation display. The pilots requested permission to abort the flight and return to Sydney airport, but were unable to turn back due to deteriorating weather. The captain then accepted the alternative route to Melbourne and manually flew the plane to the new destination. AirAsia X told CNN that all of its aircraft have since been equipped with upgraded flight management systems to avoid repeating a similar mistake. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Solar panel windows: coating of quantum dots on windows harvest energy from the sun - TomoNews
 
01:37
LOS ALAMOS, NEW MEXICO — Researchers at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico have developed a film of quantum dots that can turn windows into photovoltaic systems. Quantum dots can be used as semiconductors. According to IEEE Spectrum, they consist of a CdSe inner core, a Cd1−xZnxS outer shell and a silica coating that prevents them from oxidation. The quantum dots are spead into a thin sheet that can be placed onto a glass window pane. When photons from sunlight hit a quantum dot, it sends the electron in the valence band into the conduction band, leaving a hole behind. When the electron recombines with the hole in the valence band, a new photon with lower energy is generated. This new photon propagates within the glass via internal reflections. Energy is then generated when the propagating photons reach the window frame, where solar cells are stored. The coating of quantum dots can be used on any window and to turn it into a sunlight harvesters at costs lower than are currently available. The study was published in Nature Energy on Oct 10. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Mars mission: astronauts might deep sleep their way to Mars in hibernation chambers - TomoNews
 
01:30
WASHINGTON DC — Astronauts might one day sleep their way to Mars by spending much of the long, arduous journey in hypothermic hibernation chambers. The trip from Earth to Mars takes approximately 200 days, one way. This presents several challenges. First, the long trip could take a psychological toll on astronauts. Second, life support systems (think living quarters, food galleries, etc.) for a round-trip journey lasting more than a year would significantly add to payload requirements. Having astronauts sleep much of the way could address both these challenges. NASA is funding research into the idea through its NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts program. Last week, NASA awarded $500,000 in second-stage funding to Atlanta-based SpaceWorks Enterprises. SpaceWorks has drawn up ideas for a hibernation chamber, which it says would help reduce an astronaut's "footprint" aboard a spacecraft to Mars. The chamber's intranasal cooling system would lower the astronaut's temperature by 5 to 10 degrees Fahrenheit, significantly reducing metabolism. This is known as a "torpor-induced state using therapeutic hypothermia," a procedure developed by medical doctors for the treatment of patients. While asleep, an astronaut would be fed via catheters attached to the thigh or chest, while another tube carries waste away. Neuromuscular electrical stimulation might be used to stave off muscle atrophy. As the astronauts approach Mars, the wake-up cycle begins. Warming pads slowly raise the body's temperature. It takes roughly one hour for every 1 degree rise in body temperature. Fully awake after their long nap, the astronauts are ready to begin their Mars mission. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Pregnant mother suffers second degree burn after falling asleep on her iPhone 7 - TomoNews
 
01:22
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA — A pregnant woman in Australia posted a shocking image on Facebook showing the second degree burn she sustained after falling asleep with her charging iPhone 7. 34-year- old Sydney resident Melanie Tan Pelaez was watching movies on her iPhone 7 while it was being charged on Tuesday night, then she fell asleep, news.com.au reported. The next morning when Pelaez wakes up, she feels pain, pins and needles down her arm, realising she’d been left with an mark of the phone and charger etched into her arm. Pelaez visited a general practitioner and a hospital, they matched the markings on her arm to the phone and the charger. Pelaez took the phone to an Apple store. The staff said it wasn’t the phone’s fault since it supposed to shut off if it overheats. And it didn’t smell like an overheated iPhone. After meeting with the doctors, Pelaez wanted to share her awful experience on Facebook and is afraid the same might happen to someone else. Pelaez told news.com.au that Apple tried to give her a new iPhone 7, but she declined as she has lost her faith in the tech giant’s smartphone. Various media have already contacted Apple for comment, Apple said they are now working with Pelaez to investigate the incident. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Sleeping pods in airports and elsewhere allow you to get some shut eye in public - TomoNews
 
01:38
ABU DHABI — Sleeping pods placed in convenient locations allow people to get some desperately needed shut eye in public. Google may have popularized the concept of having sleeping pods in the workplace, but they're not the only company that uses them. Way back in 2012 with the London Olympics then approaching, one English company anticipated heavy traffic that would affect employees' commutes. So the company built sleeping pods that allowed employees to sleep in the office with privacy, reported Wired Magazine. These sleeping pods included a single mattress, while more advanced models also featured a stereo and a mirror. And now people can also choose to sleep with some privacy (and dignity) at airports instead of sprawling across several seats in front of gawking onlookers. Abu Dhabi International Airport was the first airport in the world to offer sleeping pods in 2013, although the service has since extended to many other airports worldwide — from Dallas-Fort Worth to London Gatwick. Abu Dhabi's GoSleep sleeping pods allow users to lie completely flat. Each pod is able to partly or fully block out sounds in the busy airport, depending on the user's preference. According to the airport's website, later stage pods offer wifi access, power sockets for charging electronic devices and space to store luggage under the cushion. The GoSleep sleeping pods can be rented out for about US $12 an hour — or about the price of three coffees. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Giant sinkholes near Wink, Texas are expanding, on the verge of catastrophic collapse - TomoNews
 
02:18
WINK, TEXAS — Satellite images show that two massive sinkholes near Wink, Texas are growing, and that more sinkholes are forming nearby, according to geophysicists at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, who reported their findings in the journal Remote Sensing. The sinkholes, named Wink 1 and Wink 2, are located between the small towns of Wink and Kermit in West Texas. The scientists said the sinkholes are unstable and subsiding at an alarming rate. More sinkholes could appear in the future, and they could collapse into one giant sinkhole. A collapse of the sinkholes, because they are near two towns as well as oil and gas facilities, could be catastrophic, the scientists warned. “This area is heavily populated with oil and gas production equipment and installations, hazardous liquid pipelines, as well as two communities. The intrusion of freshwater to underground can dissolve the interbedded salt layers and accelerate the sinkhole collapse,” Jin-Woo Kim, leader of the study and research scientist at Southern Methodist University, said in a statement. Wink 2 is about 3 kilometers from the town of Wink, which has a population of 940 people. Wink 1 is about 6 kilometers from the town of Kermit, which is home to 6,000 people. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Earthquake proof bed latest invention to come out of China, may save lives - TomoNews
 
01:39
HEBEI PROVINCE, CHINA - The 2008 Sichuan earthquake in China left more than 90,000 people either dead or missing, so of course it sparked a need to design more earthquake-proof buildings and sometimes furniture. One such design comes from Wang Wenxi, a man who received a patent for his earthquake-proof bed design in 2010. He’s been updating his designs and offers more than one type of bed for those wary of being caught sleeping and unaware during an earthquake. The bed resembles a cross between a panic room and a coffin. Some of the designs drop the sleeper directly inside the bed which closes up like a box, there is space for owners to store food, water, and other supplies. Unfortunately, Wang’s video and company don’t offer any explanation for how rescue crews are supposed to locate the beds in collapsed buildings and don’t show how the person inside is supposed to be able to get out. Other risks could also include caught or broken limbs if the person doesn’t sleep within the outlined parameters of the bed. There’s also the question of what happens if a person is caught outside of the bed, say during the day time or perhaps just getting up to visit the toilet. It seems like a good idea at first glance, but clearly there are still a lot of details to be worked out. The price tag on these things probably isn’t cheap either, so for those who can’t afford earthquake-proof beds it looks we’ll just have to stick to traditional methods such as hiding in a bathtub, under tables, or shielding your head with something soft like a pillow and then running for the door as soon as possible. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Ostrich: cyclists peddle faster as world's largest bird runs behind them in Cape Town - TomoNews
 
02:16
CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA — A small group of cyclists were training on a routine bike path down a deserted road, when a wild ostrich snuck out of the bushes and began racing behind them for about 100 seconds. A friend cycling behind them caught the entire scene on camera. The ostrich is indeed the world's largest bird, weighing in at up to 320 pounds, and able to grow up to nine feet tall. While they never evolved to develop the ability to fly, they are mighty runners. At full speed, they can clock up to 43 miles per hour. While they can only do this for short bursts, when it comes to long distances the ostrich can outlast even a cheetah, able to run at over 30 miles per hour for more than 10 miles. Ostriches use their wings as rudders, playing a key role in their running ability, helping them change direction. Their long, thin legs also aid in their speed, covering between 10 and 16 feet in a single bound. When it comes to their food selection, ostriches eat both vegetables and meat, though they do prefer their greens, like leaves, roots, and seeds. They also snack on insects, lizards, snakes, and rodents. While ostriches may sip from a watering hole if they come across one, they receive all the H2O they need from the plants they feast on. At the end of the video, the ostrich runs off the trail and into the bushes, as the cyclists share a laugh at what just happened to them. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Two cave divers die in underwater Florida labyrinth known as ‘Mount Everest of diving’ - TomoNews
 
01:29
WEEKI WACHEE, FLORIDA — Two divers died exploring an underwater cave system in Florida known to be one of the world’s most beautiful, but also most dangerous diving sites. The bodies of Patrick Peacock, 53, and Chris Rittenmeyer, 38, were found by rescue divers in the Eagle’s Nest cave system on Monday, NBC affiliate WFLA reported. Eagle’s Nest is also known as the Lost Sink. Divers access the underwater caves through a pond in the Chassahowitzka Wildlife Refuge. Among divers, the caves are considered the Mount Everest or Grand Canyon of diving sites for their stunning views and extreme depths. The treacherous tunnels contain around a mile of passages, some of them more than 300 feet deep. Peacock and Rittenmeyer explored deep into the caves on Sunday, while a third diver, Justin Blakely, stayed nearer the surface. Blakely raised the alarm when his two friends failed to show up on time at their meeting point. The two dead divers were found in a complex and dangerous part of the cave system, according to deputies. They are the ninth and tenth divers to die at Eagle’s Nest since 1981. Both men were experienced cave divers and had explored the site before. Florida man Chester Spivey, whose son and grandson died at Eagle’s Nest on Christmas Day 2013, renewed calls for the site to be closed in the wake of Peacock and Rittenmeyer’s deaths. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Middle East water crisis: UAE plans man-made mountain to increase rainfall - TomoNews
 
01:25
ABU DHABI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES — The United Arab Emirates is considering building an artificial mountain to increase rainfall and address the country's water shortages. The International Business Times reports that according to the UAE's Federal Water and Electricity Authority, an average resident uses an estimated 550 liters of water daily — almost two to three times the international average of 170 to 300 liters. The high consumption is especially problematic as water in the region is in very short supply due to the arid climate and naturally low precipitation rates. Arabian Business reports that the government has already turned to artificial weather modification. In 2015, $558,000 was spent on cloud-seeding. In February of the same year, the U.S.-based University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) received $400,000 in funding to produce a development plan for a man-made mountain. UCAR is in the early stages of the project. It is collaborating with the National Center of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) in a modelling study to evaluate the effects building a mountain would have on the weather, and what height, width and location would be best. Mountains force air to rise up into the atmosphere, where it cools and condenses into clouds. The clouds then produce rain or are seeded to stimulate precipitation. But cloud seeding can have undesirable outcomes, such as too much rainfall or none at all. Due to the rain shadow effect, an artificial mountain can inhibit rainfall on one side, causing that area to become more parched, according to Discovery. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Biogas: Human waste turned into clean power in Cameroon innovative clean energy project - TomoNews
 
01:27
BUEA, CAMEROON — Two towns in Cameroon have installed biogas systems to turn human waste into sustainable energy that can provide fuel and electricity for local communities. The project was initiated by Bioenergy-Cameroon, a non-governmental youth organization. Local students, especially female students, are trained on how to install and maintain innovative technology systems such as solar power and biogas mechanisms. According to Reuters, the system includes a septic tank, which is connected to a bio-digester at individual households. Human waste placed in the septic tank is converted into biogas inside the bio-digesters, which release energy into people’s homes for cooking and lighting. Reuters reports that more than 3,000 households and local schools in the towns of Buea and Bamenda have installed the biogas system. The Center for Environment and Development, an NGO in Cameroon, estimates that the biogas project may reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the vicinity by up to 60 percent. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Man proposes with 840 Rubik's cubes of dream girl's face, but woman says, 'no' - TomoNews
 
01:14
HONG KONG — A man has found a creative way to propose to his love using Rubik's cubes. Unfortunately, his proposal was denied. Tong Aonan, a mechanic from the northern Chinese city of Shenyang, solved 840 Rubik's cubes to create a portrait of his dream girl, a next door neighbor. Aonan spent two months planning the 2.1-meter high by 1.4-meter wide mosaic, which he drafted on Photoshop. He had $460 worth of Rubik's cubes sent to his apartment, solved them all, then spent 20 hours over three nights to complete the portrait, which he stacked in a wooden frame. After proposing and being rejected, Aonan shared his tale on social media. While many questioned why someone would turn down such a geeky yet adorable proposal, Aonan has no hard feelings. He still keeps the mosaic in his apartment … but has said he's figuring out how to move it. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Plastic surgery gone wrong: Filipino model’s face ruined after $10 nose and chin job - TomoNews
 
01:14
LAGUNA, PHILIPPINES — Ellowe Alviso thought fixing his flat nose would land him more gigs. Instead, the aspiring Filipino model’s dreams came crashing down after a back alley cosmetic procedure ruined his looks for good. In an interview with Philippine radio station DZMM, Alviso said he was introduced in 2012 to transgendered beautician Euge Edward Unangan, who uses the name Kasheca Magallanes. The beautician claimed to have studied nursing, and agreed to give Alviso a nose and chin job via collagen injection for 500 pesos, or roughly 10 dollars. The procedure was successful, landing Alviso more modeling jobs as a result. But two years later, things started to go downhill. During a photoshoot, a fellow model noticed that his nose seemed a little deformed, and soon, both nose and chin had become swollen and infected. When the 24-year-old tried to ask the beautician for help, but was cursed out and threatened. Alviso eventually sought help from doctors, who told him he was injected not with collagen, but with a lethal cocktail of petroleum jelly, wax and sealant. Despite getting surgery to save his face, he was left disfigured and horribly scarred. Unable to continue modeling due to his mangled features, Alviso is now forced to do odd jobs, selling duck eggs and candy on the street, and moonlighting as a Halloween ghoul. Police are looking for the transgendered beautician and have a warrant out for her arrest, according to ABS-CBN News. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

NASA planet discovery: Kepler space telescope finds 1,284 new planets in our galaxy - TomoNews
 
01:49
WASHINGTON — NASA's Kepler mission, launched in 2009 and with two more years to go, has detected 1,284 new exoplanets, including nine worlds that may be able to sustain life. NASA announced on Tuesday that the Kepler Space Telescope, which searches for planets in our Milky Way that lie up to 3,000 light years from Earth, has verified 1,284 new planets. Five hundred and fifty appear to be rocky based on their size. Of these 550, nine are located just far enough from their suns to suggest they may contain water. The latest finding nearly doubles the number of confirmed exoplanets and is the largest number of new planets announced at one time, reported Space. According to NASA's statement, the new findings can be credited to a computer simulation and a new statistical method that takes into account such factors as how many total stars are in our galaxy. The total number of exoplanets discovered now stands at 3,200. A total of 21 of these may be habitable. The Kepler mission shows that with at least 70 billion stars in our galaxy, there may be billions of habitable, Earth-sized planets out there that have yet to be discovered. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Takata airbag recall: Texas teen killed by shrapnel is 10th US exploding air bag victim - TomoNews
 
01:35
WASHINGTON — The death of a teenaged Texas driver last week is the 10th linked to defective Takata air bags in the United States, regulators and automaker Honda confirmed on Wednesday. Exploding Takata air bags have prompted the recall of tens of millions of vehicles worldwide, Reuters reported. The latest U.S. victim was 17-year-old Huma Hanif, who died on March 31 when her 2002 Honda Civic rear-ended a Honda CR-V in Fort Bend County. High school senior Hanif was not speeding and was wearing a seatbelt during the crash, so she should have walked away alive, investigators told Reuters. However, she was killed when shrapnel punctured her air bag and sliced through an artery in her neck. The use of ammonium nitrate as a propellant is one of three factors that cause Takata air bags to explode, according to the Independent Testing Coalition, which is made up of 10 automakers, Autoblog reported. The Independent Testing Coalition found that Takata's inflators don't keep out moisture in high-humidity environments, according to Autoblog. High humidity then causes the already moist air bags to explode with too much force, spraying shrapnel at drivers and passengers. So far, 14 automakers have recalled 24 million vehicles over the faulty air bags in the largest auto recall in U.S. history, Reuters reported. Nine of the U.S. deaths linked to Takata air bags occurred in Honda vehicles. More than 100 people have been injured by the air bags, according to several reports. Honda said the owner of Hanif's car had been mailed multiple recall notices, but repairs were never made, according to Reuters. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

European Space Agency’s Rosetta probe locates and photographs missing Philae lander - TomoNews
 
01:43
COMET 67P — Less than one month before the end of its mission, the Rosetta probe has made a yet another discovery: the location of its sister, the Philae comet lander. Rosetta has had quite the time in space. The probe has been surveying Comet 67P — also known as Churyumov-Gerasimenko. In 2011, Rosetta was placed in hibernation mode for 31 months to conserve energy and traveled to the most distant part of its journey. In November 2014, it released Philae, which landed on the comet, the first time a spacecraft has ever done so. However, Philae bounced during its landing and was only in operation for a short time before it powered down. Experts have unable to locate the lander since. Currently, Rosetta is nearing the orbit of Jupiter, which means it’s running short on solar power and bandwidth required to downlink necessary data. At the moment, the probe is gathering as much data about the comet as possible. It recently found the amino acid glycine, a crucial building block of life, in the dust surrounding the comet. And in about a month’s time, Rosetta will crash into the comet, ending its mission. Before doing so, Rosetta has given researchers one last gift. The probe captured images of the Philae lander, or at least, what’s left of it, on its high-resolution camera. Images showed the lander with two of its three legs, trapped in a dark crack on the comet where it was unable to absorb sunlight and recharge. This explains why the lander powered down after only three days of activity. After going into hibernation, the lander powered up again and attempted communication with the ESA in June and July 2015 when the comet came closer to the sun. It’s a bittersweet discovery, but at least Philae’s fate will no longer be a mystery. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

How do U.S. primaries and caucuses work? - TomoNews
 
01:53
Before a U.S. presidential election can take place, the Democratic and Republican parties need to choose a nominee. They do this by holding a series of smaller elections at the state level, which are called primaries and caucuses. In these mini elections, voters don't directly choose the presidential candidate they support. Rather, they are voting for delegates who will represent their choice at each party’s national convention later in the year. Most states hold primaries, whereby citizens go into voting booths to cast a ballot for their preferred candidate. Most of these primaries are 'closed' primaries, meaning you can’t vote unless you are officially registered with the party. But some states allow semi-closed primaries, which allows independent voters to participate, although they can participate in the primary of only one party. And some states will allow open primaries, where anyone, regardless of their official political affiliation, is allowed to vote. A caucus is very different from a primary. It's a public voting process, where people gather and physically stand with those who support the same delegate they do. At the end of the caucus, the number of people in each group are counted, and the delegate with the bigger group supporting him or her wins. The more citizens who live in a state, the more delegates that state can send to the national convention. And at the national convention, the candidate who wins more than half of the delegates’ votes wins the presidential nomination for the party. Primaries and caucuses aren’t conducted all at once. They are spread out over a year. Traditionally, Iowa always holds the first caucus, and New Hampshire holds the first primary. However, many states will decide to hold their caucuses and primaries all on the same day. This day has come to be known as Super Tuesday. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Archeology discovery: Ancient Roman villa discovered under Wiltshire, England farmhouse - TomoNews
 
01:32
WILTSHIRE, ENGLAND — A British rug designer just wanted to lay electric cables to his barn so that his children could play ping pong inside, but in doing so he unearthed what may be one of the biggest Roman villas in the United Kingdom. Workmen digging at a farmhouse in southwest England last February discovered a hard layer 18 inches below the surface that turned out to be pieces of a mosaic. Property owner Luke Irwin said he sent a photo of the mosaic to the local council. He told the New York Times that within 24 hours, a team of archeologists were on his property. Archaeologists then began an eight-day dig at the farmhouse and in the field next to the house. Only a few test pits have been dug, but according to the New York Times, archaeologists say that the existing walls seem to be more than a meter tall. The farmhouse appears to be sitting on a slab of marble in the middle of what was a Roman villa, which measured about 50 meters long by 50 meters wide and was probably about three stories high. According to the Guardian, the building was built between AD 175 and 220 and has not been touched for at least 1,500 years — withstanding the collapse of the Roman Empire and the Saxons. A whole range of artifacts have been found on site during the excavation, including a child's tomb, oyster shells, brooches, animal bones and coins, suggesting that the owners of the villa were wealthy. Artifacts from the dig have been taken to the Salisbury Museum, while the dig has been covered up until archeologists obtain more funding to do a proper investigation. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Largest indoor vertical farm uses 95 percent less water and produces more per square feet -TomoNews
 
02:17
NEWARK, NEW JERSEY — The world’s largest indoor vertical farm is well on its way to producing millions of pounds of food a year while using less water. Last December, AeroFarms Inc. secured $20 million in a Series B round of venture funding, paving the way for its 70,000 square foot facility in Newark, New Jersey, which the company says has the potential to produce 2 million pounds of food a year. Ground was broken on the facility last year and it is now nearing completion. It houses an efficient “aeroponic vertical farm” system that uses 95 percent less water than conventional commercial field farms and 40 percent less than hydroponic farms. The farm uses no sunlight or soil. Instead, the plants are housed on shelves and sprout out of a cloth medium made of post-consumer, recycled plastic. Each cloth takes 24 plastic water bottles out of the waste stream. An aeroponic system mists the plant roots with water, nutrients and oxygen. The closed system allows the farm to use less water. An LED lighting system is programmed to create a specific light recipe for each plant, giving the greens the exact spectrum, intensity and frequency they need for photosynthesis in the most energy-efficient way possible. The programmed lights also allow farmers to control the size, shape, texture, color, flavor and nutritional content of the foods produced. The cloth medium separates the plants from the nutrient-rich mists, allowing for fresh, clean and dry produce to be harvested. Once harvested, the cloth medium can be fully sanitized and reused on new crops. Utilizing the aeroponic and LED systems, the scientific farmers can monitor all the macro- and micronutrients of each plant, allowing AeroFarms to grow a plant in half the time of a commercial farm and with more productivity per square foot. They also tweak and track changes to allow for further improvements to the system. Currently, AeroFarms has two facilities with the larger 70,000 square foot building nearing completion. The AeroFarm system is also customizable. AeroFarms aims to have 25 facilities around the world in five years. The company hopes to build farms in different sizes and configurations to grow food in varied locations with the most efficient yield per square foot, no matter the space. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Zuzu the dog: lost German shepherd at shelter sees her family but they ask for a new dog - TomoNews
 
01:53
DOWNEY, CALIFORNIA — A young dog who’d mistakenly been sent to an animal shelter by a neighbor was left heartbroken when she reunited with her family, only to see them looking to adopt a new pet, instead. Not too long ago, the 2-year-old German shepherd was out in the yard of her family’s California home, when for some reason she hopped the fence. The neighbors living next door weren’t too thrilled, and called animal control to have her taken away. Sitting and waiting in a pen at the shelter, the young dog’s eyes lit up when she saw her family walk by. Video of the encounter was published to Facebook earlier this month. The family came over to talk to the dog and pet her through the fence. Noticeably ecstatic about going home, the dog was then confused when her owners told staff at the shelter they actually came by looking for a new dog. Apparently, the German shepherd’s father had recently passed away, and she’d been crying ever since. Her owners were tired of listening to her whimpering, and figured the best thing to do was to leave her at the shelter, and find a new pet. Renamed Zuzu after the daughter in the classic Christmas movie, It’s a Wonderful Life, the Downey Animal Care Center staff intend to make sure from now on, she gets to enjoy exactly that. After her story was published to Facebook last week, messages from all over the country — Washington State, Arizona, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and locally, too — have been pouring in from people wanting to offer Zuzu a new forever home. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Man gives homeless stranger on New York subway the shirt off his back - TomoNews
 
02:04
NEW YORK — We often say something along the lines of: "So-and-so is such a kind person, he'd give you the shirt off his back." But it's not often that we see someone actually go so far as to act out that idiom. But a good Samaritan riding New York City's Brooklyn-bound A train did just that last Friday night as the temperature plummeted to around a chilly 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Lazaro Nolasco captured a heartwarming exchange between two men after getting on the train in Washington Heights. He posted the video to Facebook and it has since racked up more than eight million views. In the video Nolasco captured, a man is seen walking over to a shirtless passenger, offers his white T-shirt to the half-naked stranger, and even helps him put it on. The homeless man, who was sitting alone, was shivering and "looked sickly," Nolasco told New York Daily News. The man then walks back to his seat and grabs his black beanie, which he then also puts onto the stranger. New York City gets a bad rep for being a city with not exactly the nicest people, but stories like these show good Samaritans definitely do dwell there. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

John Hinckley Jr.: Reagan shooter now free decades after assassination attempt - TomoNews
 
07:05
WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA — More than three decades after attempting to assassinate a president and almost succeeding, John Hinckley Jr. is now a free man. On March 30, 1981, just 69 days into his presidency, U.S. President Ronald Reagan was hit by a bullet while walking out of the Hilton Hotel in Washington. The shooter was John Warnock Hinckley, Jr., who hid among the crowd and fired six Devastator bullets from a .22 caliber revolver. Four people were injured in the shooting: Press Secretary James Brady, D.C. police officer Thomas Delahanty, Secret Service Agent Tim McCarthy, and the President himself. All four survived. Hinckley had been infatuated with actress Jodie Foster and the film Taxi Driver. He emulated the film’s lead character and believed that by assassinating the President, he would become famous and gain Foster’s love and respect. He was tried for the assassination attempt in 1982, but received a not guilty verdict by reason of insanity. Instead of prison, he was sent to St. Elizabeth’s, a federal psychiatric facility. Though initially deemed a danger to himself and others, Hinckley was eventually granted brief outside visits. Over the years, he has been allowed to have longer visits with his mother at her Williamsburg, Virginia home. Last month, Hinckley was granted release after a judge deemed him cured of his psychosis. He is now living full-time with his mother and must remain with her for at least the next year. One of the conditions of his release is that he cannot contact any of his victims, their families, or Jodie Foster. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Narco-torpedo: Colombian cartels are using high-tech torpedoes to smuggle drugs - TomoNews
 
01:21
BOGOTA, COLOMBIA — The Colombian Navy on Octob. 23 found 73 kg of cocaine submerged and attached to a docked sailboat off Baru island near the coastal city of Cartagena on Oct. 23. Colombian authorities say towing drugs in these so-called “narco torpedos” is a new trafficking technique favored by the country's drug cartels. According to InSight Crime, the drugs are loaded onto a torpedo-shaped container, which is attached to the bottom of a boat by a cable. The drug-carrying boat sets off with other boats. One boat acts as a decoy to divert the authorities’ attention so the other boats, including the one carrying the drugs, can get a away. If the drug-carrying boat is intercepted, it releases the torpedo to avoid detection. The torpedo then releases a buoy that emits a GPS signal, allowing it to be recovered by another boat. Univision reported that the narco torpedo was developed back in 2000. An earlier version used a radio-transmitter. Other variations include attaching the drug-laden torpedoes to the bottom of freight ships to be retrieved by divers at night after the vessel has docked at port. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

South China Sea dispute: Vietnam begins dredging on Ladd Reef in disputed waters - TomoNews
 
01:32
LADD REEF, SOUTH CHINA SEA — Satellite images taken by a U.S. based firm revealed suspected dredging work on Ladd Reef, a coral reef controlled by Vietnam in the South China Sea. Ladd Reef is about 450 km from Vietnam’s southeastern coast and is completely submerged at high tide. It has a 42-meter-tall lighthouse, which is operated by a small number of Vietnam soldiers and worker. Analysts told Reuters that such dredging work could be the precursor to more extensive construction on other reefs, and Ladd Reef might be used to boost access for supply ships and fishing boats. It could also help defend the nearby Spratly Islands, where Vietnam has expanded its airstrip. Vietnam is one of the many nations that claims the South China Sea as part of its territory. China, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan have also made claims in the region. Vietnam has become China’s main rival in the disputed South China Sea. According to Reuters, the mobile rocket launchers installed on several islands controlled by Vietnam are capable of striking China’s runway and military installations. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Scientists convert carbon dioxide into rock in breakthrough climate change experiment - TomoNews
 
01:18
HENGILL, ICELAND — Researchers are hailing a potential game-changer for climate change after successfully converting carbon to rock at a geothermal power plant in Iceland. The project could help to reduce global warming by burying the waste CO2 produced from burning fossil fuels, the Guardian reported. Scientists at the Hellisheidi geothermal power plant converted carbon dioxide into the volcanic rock basalt, according to a study published in the journal Science. The researchers pumped 230 tons of CO2 into rock 500 meters underground, dissolving the gas in water to prevent it from escaping. More than 95 percent of the gas turned to stone within two years, speeding up a natural process that takes hundreds or thousands of years, the Guardian reported. A potential problem for the technique is that it requires 25 tons of water for every ton of buried CO2. However, researchers said seawater can be used, which is abundant at coastal sites, the Guardian reported. The project is seen as an improvement on existing carbon capture and storage methods that store CO2 as a gas, causing concern about potential leaks. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Kickboxing gone wrong: Man’s leg bends wrong way during Muay Thai training session - TomoNews
 
01:03
TORONTO — Video footage of a kickboxing demonstration shows a man’s leg bending in the wrong direction after a kick from the instructor pops his knee out of joint. The video was reportedly taken in 2012 but was only recently uploaded to YouTube. The video, supposedly taken at a Muay Thai class, show two men at a practice session when the teacher delivers a low kick on a student during a training session. However, the demonstration goes terribly wrong when this causes the student’s knee to pop out of joint, forcing his lower leg to bend in the wrong direction. The student is clearly in pain as he tries to sit down, but is unable to because of his awkwardly bent leg beneath him. Instead of cries of horror, people behind the camera can be heard laughing as the teacher quickly positions himself on the other side of the student to deliver another swift kick that pops the student’s leg back into place. Surprisingly, the student seems to think the entire ordeal is pretty funny too and is seen in the video laughing along with the rest of the bystanders. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Cancer breakthrough: T-cell therapy and cancer vaccine could offer future lasting cure - TomoNews
 
02:15
SEATTLE — Scientists in the U.S. and in Italy are developing a revolutionary cancer therapy that would teach the body to destroy cancer cells on its own, reducing the need for debilitating chemotherapy treatments. The new technique developed by the Cancer Research Center in Seattle, involves removing T-cells from patients, and genetically modify them by adding chimeric antigen receptors, or CARs, from genetically engineered mice. The modified T-cells are then injected back into the patient's body, and are able to target and destroy cancer cells. The therapy is similar to a treatment given last year to British baby Layla Richards, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, a disease in which the bone marrow makes too many immature lymphocytes, Sky News reported. Richards received her treatment at Great Ormond Street Hospital in central London and was left cancer-free. Recent T-cell immunotherapy trials have shown great results also in the U.S. More than 40 patients with different types of blood cancers were treated, and more than half of them were left cancer-free. Among patients with terminal leukemia, 94 percent went into remission. Being in remission, however, still implies the cancer could eventually return. In a second major breakthrough in Italy, researchers at the University of Milan have discovered that memory T-cells can stay in the body for at least 14 years, according to a study published on the San Raffaele Hospital website. This means the cells could be trained to fight cancer as well as to remember the disease in case it comes back, allowing them to defeat it again. The latest discovery gives hope for the development of a vaccine-style drug that could stop cancer from coming back once it has been defeated. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Affordable housing? ByFusion turns waste plastic into RePlast bricks to make cheap homes - TomoNews
 
01:12
NEW YORK — A New York startup has developed an innovative way to recycle waste plastic, converting it into an alternative building material that can be used to build affordable housing. The company, called ByFusion, has designed a machine that is highly compact and modular. It can be powered by propane gas or electricity and can process all types of plastic waste, according to the ByFusion website. The plastic waste does not have to be pre-processed. Instead, it is shredded inside the machine before it’s made into a new material called RePlast and compressed into bricks. The RePlast bricks are not as strong as concrete, so are reinforced with steel rods, wire and layers of mortar. The company said RePlast has been used in projects including retaining walls in New Zealand and California, which have withstood environmental tests such as earthquakes. ByFusion has so far raised around $30,000 of a $250,000 target on Indiegogo. On its campaign page, it says the machine will likely be available in the U.S. by May next year. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.
