A cowboy, a one-eyed boxer and a parachuting priest…. meet the original SAS who struck terror into Nazi troops

Ready for action...an SAS jeep patrol in North Africa in 1943THEY were some of the bravest, toughest soldiers of World War Two, trained killers who struck terror into Nazi troops in North Africa.

But they were also wildly unconventional pirates in a private army — oddballs who didn’t fit into the traditional ranks.They included a former cowboy, a one-eyed boxer, a parachuting priest and a rugby international.
Some were natural warriors, nerveless and calm. Some were surprisingly gentle. Many were eccentric. And a few were close to being psychotic.
These were the real SAS, the men who founded Britain’s most famous fighting force, in North Africa in 1941, and went on to fight behind the lines in Italy, Nazi-occupied France and Germany.read more

Flat-faced dog’s fight for life left me ‘a mess,’ says Ulrika Jonsson, as she supports vets’ health warning

It mutt be love . . . Ulrika with bulldogs Nessie and DexterTHEIR cute scrunched-up faces have made them some of our favourite dogs.
But would-be owners are being urged by vets to steer clear of “flat-faced” breeds such as pugs, bulldogs and shih tzus, as the extremes of selective breeding have left them prone to health problems from breathing difficulties to eye ulcers.
Former British Veterinary Association president Robin Hargreaves says: “Their nasal passages are so thin that it’s like breathing through a straw.”ANYONE who tells you a dog is “just a dog” hasn’t experienced a pet’s unconditional love.
My two bulldogs — Nessie, five, and three-year-old Dexter — are my companions and both came from reputable, responsible breeders.
They are my best friends, my ­children and a bigger part of my life than I can respectfully concede.
But all that nearly changed three months ago when Dexter fell ill.read more

Ancient buttons reveal new theory on beach skeletons

The skeleton of one of the men discovered on the North Devon coastHistorians have shed new light on four skeletons found buried near a beach – by studying their buttons.
They believe the four men, found in the 1990s buried near Croyde, North Devon, probably drowned in a shipwreck. But clues from the skeletons and their buttons suggest they were probably not seamen but wealthy passengers or merchantmen.
The new information about the skeletons has just been published by the Devon Archaeological Society.
A report by Tim Gent, of Exeter Archaeology, says the burials were discovered between 1996 and 1998 at Saunton Down End.
Two of the skeletons were found with finely decorated pewter buttons. This suggests they would have benefited from relatively elevated positions in life, says the report.
Bone buttons found with the two other skeletons suggest they were somewhat lower on the social scale.
Charlotte Coles, from Exeter Archaeology, studied three of the skeletons and concluded that two of the men were aged between 35 and 40 years when they died. The third, the tallest man at 6ft, was aged 25-30.
She said in the report: "If these were naval seamen, or men who spent a great deal of time at sea, more severe trauma or illness might be expected, with falls, breaks and infection being very common among sailors."READ MORE AND SEE AT BARNSTAPLE MUSEUM ENGLAND

Feelings of loneliness appear to be partially down to your genes

New research suggests that it's not just the social situation you're in, but also the genes you're born with that affect your likelihood of feeling lonely.
While environmental factors definitely play a bigger role, a new study of more than 10,000 people has shown that loneliness can be partly hereditary too.
As loneliness feeds into all kinds of physical and mental health problems, and is a significant factor in early deaths, scientists are keen to understand more about where it comes from so that we can get better at preventing it.
Specifically, the team was interested in understanding if there could be a genetic risk factor for loneliness.
"We want to know why, genetically speaking, one person is more likely than another to feel lonely, even in the same situation," said lead researcher, psychiatrist Abraham Palmer, from the University of California, San Diego.
"For two people with the same number of close friends and family, one might see their social structure as adequate while the other doesn't," he added. "And that's what we mean by 'genetic predisposition to loneliness'."
The researchers pored through a longitudinal health study in the US of 10,760 people aged 50 and older to try and spot links between genetics and loneliness.read more

Pee of newt and poo of bat – bat identification from droppings and DNA

Droppings, faeces, dung, poo – call it what you will these are a mainstay in the ecologists fieldcraft for id’ing species, and bats are no different.
Finding bat droppings within barns and lofts, at bat access points and under cracks and holes in trees is a good initial indicator of bat presence at a site. Knowing they are bat droppings is relatively easy, as although they look very similar to mouse droppings, when crushed they easily break down to a fine powder, made of insect carapaces.
You can sometimes determine the species or group of bat species present, purely from their droppings. Until recently this has been fairly tough, relying predominantly on how the droppings look….their colour, size, shape and texture.
Pipistrelle droppings are usually very small and regularly oval shaped, but by eye you can’t tell the difference in droppings between the three different species. Brown long-eared bat droppings are usually longer and twisted, but can often break up at the twists to look like smaller droppings. Serotine droppings are usually ‘bullet’ shaped.
However, there can be substantial differences between droppings from individual bats of the same species, with the diet playing the greatest role.
Brave souls have endeavoured to determine bat species by dissecting bat droppings using a microscope, and using the insect fragments that remain to determine what the -read more
Super-fleas1Billions of 'super-fleas' with massive penises are expected to invade homes across Cornwall and beyond this autumn.
The new breed of so called super-fleas, which are far bigger than 'normal' fleas, are expected to come out of hibernation early this year.
The flea has a penis which is two-and-a-half times the length of its body - the largest genitalia relative to size of any bug on earth.
Conditions for flea breeding have been perfect with a mild summer and the right amount of rain and damp weather.
The new flea breed is believed to have come from Europe over the past few years.read more

Massive crater under small Scottish town could be the crash site of the first meteorite to hit the British Isles

A geology and gravity low map shows the area below Lairg where the meteorite hitThe exact landing site of the first meteorite to hit the British Isles has been a mystery for years.
Now a scientist claims to have discovered its exact location.
Palaeontologist Dr Mike Simms believes he has found the 25 mile-wide impact crater under the small town of Lairg in northern Scotland.For years scientists have been studying green rock fragments found sandwiched between 1.2 billion-year-old sandstone near Ullapool, 30 miles to the west of Lairg.
For decades this layer was thought to be a volcanic mudflow until, in 2008, geologists from Oxford and Aberdeen proved that it had actually been formed by a giant meteorite impact.read more

Arsène Wenger,-20 years at arsenal football club

wiki link  OBE (French pronunciation: ​[aʁsɛn vɛŋ(ɡ)ɛʁ]; born 22 October 1949), is a French football manager and formerplayer. He has been the manager of Arsenal since 1996, where he has since become the club's longest-serving manager and most successful in terms of major titles won. Football pundits give Wenger credit for his contribution to the revolutionising of football in England in the late 1990s through the introduction of changes in the training and diet of players.
Wenger was born in Strasbourg and raised in Duttlenheim. He was introduced to football by his father, the manager of the local village team. After a modest playing career, in which he made appearances for several amateur clubs, Wenger obtained a manager's diploma in 1981. Following an unsuccessful period at Nancy which culminated in his dismissal in 1987, Wenger joinedAS Monaco; the club won the league championship in 1988. In 1991, Wenger guided Monaco to victory in the Coupe de France, but their failure to regain the league title in later seasons led to his departure from the club by mutual consent in 1994. He briefly coached Japanese J.League side Nagoya Grampus Eight, which won the Emperor's Cup and Japanese Super Cup during his stint.
In 1996, Wenger was named manager of Arsenal and two years later the club completed a league and FA Cup double. The club won another league and cup double in 2002 and retained the FA Cup a year later. In 2004, Wenger managed Arsenal to anundefeated league season, a feat last accomplished by Preston North End, 115 years previously. Arsenal later eclipsed Nottingham Forest's record of 42 league matches unbeaten and went seven more matches before losing in October 2004. The club made their first appearance in a Champions League final in 2006, though they lost to Barcelona. After a period of nine years without a trophy, which coincided with the club relocating to the Emirates Stadium, Wenger guided Arsenal to further FA Cup success in 2014 and2015. Alongside George Ramsay, he is the most successful manager in the competition's history with six titles.
The nickname "Le Professeur" (French; "The Professor") is used by fans and the British media to reflect Wenger's studious demeanour. His approach to the game emphasises an attacking mentality, with the aim that football ought to be entertaining on the pitch. Wenger's Arsenal teams have been criticised for their indiscipline; his players received 100 red cards between September 1996 and February 2014, though the team has won awards for sporting fair play. At Monaco, Wenger earned a reputation for spotting young talent, and he has remained focused on developing a youth system.wiki link

Work is underway to fight 'killer' Asian hornets before they arrive in UK for first time

Killer hornets have been spotted in the UK for the first time ever and are feared to be breeding successfully, according to experts.
The Asian hornet - which poses a severe risk to the world's bee population - was discovered in Gloucestershire.
Smaller than the UK's native hornet, this particular species grows up to 2.5cm and poses no greater risk to human health than than common “yellowjacket” wasps.
However, they do pose a risk to honey bees.
According to experts, the Asian hornet waits outside bee hives before biting the honey bee's head off.read more

Key Facts About Seasonal Flu Vaccine

Why should people get vaccinated against the flu?

Influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently. Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others. Over a period of 31 seasons between 1976 and 2007,estimates of flu-associated deaths in the United States range from a low of about 3,000 to a high of about 49,000 people. During recent flu seasons, between 80% and 90% of flu related deaths have occurred in people 65 years and older. "Flu season" in the United States can begin as early as October and last as late as May. During this time, flu viruses are circulating at higher levels in the U.S. population. An annual seasonal flu vaccine (either the flu shot or the nasal spray flu vaccine) is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get seasonal flu and spread it to others. When more people get vaccinated against the flu, less flu can spread through that community.

How do flu vaccines work?

Flu vaccines cause antibodies to develop in the body about two weeks after vaccination. These antibodies provide protection against infection with the viruses that are in the vaccine.
The seasonal flu vaccine protects against the influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming season. Traditional flu vaccines (called "trivalent" vaccines) are made to protect against three flu viruses; an influenza A (H1N1) virus, an influenza A (H3N2) virus, and an influenza B virus. There are also flu vaccines made to protect against four flu viruses (called "quadrivalent" vaccines). These vaccines protect against the same viruses as the trivalent vaccine and an additional B virus.read more

THE EXISTENCE OF MONSTERS AND GIANTS?

Monsters and giants have always played an important part in folklore and fiction. There has been a lot of speculation of whether some of these creatures exist in reality or not. People claiming to have witnessed some of them have aroused those speculations and have created a lot of curiosity about them. There has also been an element of fear involved in it as monsters and giants are known to be something that are dangerous and that can be harmful.

One of the most popular of such creatures that is believed to be in reality is the Bigfoot. The BigfootJustify Fullis a large, hairy half-human and half-ape like creature. It is known to be about 6 to10 feet tall, is tremendously huge, and walks upright on its legs. It is supposedly known to inhabit, mainly, in forests, in the Pacific Northwest region of North America.

There have been known to be a number of alleged interactions between humans and the Bigfoot. Many people have claimed to have seen it, which adds to the curiosity of the creature. The search for the Bigfoot has been going on for years. But all that has been found are some large footprints, some hazy pictures and videos, and endless stories about the Bigfoot.-read more

Mouse-Sized Spiders Released in U.K.

The majority of people taking an online poll describe this news as "terrifying," but scientists are cheering the comeback of a large, endangered spider in the U.K. It's a recovery that was made possible by the recent release of hundreds of captive-bred individuals.
The fen raft spider (Dolomedes plantarius), which can grow up to three inches (7.6 centimeters) long and sometimes eats fish, is the largest species of spider in the U.K. It is also endangered. That's why scientists from the London-area zoo Chessington World of Adventures have beenbreeding it in captivity.

    tango r.i.p

    Esso tiger diesA TIGER who starred in Esso’s much-loved fuel adverts has died of old age at a Lincolnshire wildlife park.
    Tango, one of several big cats to appear in the famous ‘Tiger in Your Tank’ ads in the 1990s, passed away at the weekend.His tragic death comes just two years after he was rescued from an Eastern European circus.
    Woodside Wildlife Park has received almost 1,000 messages of sympathy on its Facebook page since announcing the 22-year-old animal’s death.
    Tango is thought to have been Britain’s oldest tiger.Park director Neil Mumby said: “A normal age for a tiger to reach would be approximately 15 – so at 22 he was over 100 years old in human terms.
    “He had extremely good innings but he had a mixed life in his circus time on the continent.
    “We were happy to give him a good, peaceful retirement for two-and-a-half years – we have seen him chasing butterflies, swimming and behaving like a tiger deserves to.”Mumby, who orchestrated a £250,000 project to re-home Tango in 2014, added: “From my point of view, we are extremely proud to have given him his retirement.”
    Esso first used an image of a tiger in its ads following the end of rationing after the Second World War.
    The long-running “Put a Tiger in Your Tank” campaign is regarded is one of the most successful in advertising history.see ad

    2 Tone (music genre)

    2 Tone (or Two Tone) was a late-1970s ska revival in the United Kingdom led by Jerry Dammers and The Specials. It fused traditional ska music with punk rock attitude, energy and musical elements.[1][2] Its name came from the record label that Dammers founded, 2 Tone Records as well as a desire to transcend and defuse racial tensions in Thatcher-era Britain. Although 2 Tone's mainstream commercial appeal was largely limited to the UK, it influenced the North American ska punk movement (also known asthird wave ska) in the 1980s and 1990s.[3][4]The 2 Tone sound was developed by young musicians in Coventry, West Midlands, England who grew up hearing 1960s Jamaican music.[5] They combined influences from ska, reggae and rocksteady with elements of punk rock and new wave. Bands considered part of the genre include: The Specials, The Selecter, The Beat, Madness, Bad Manners and The Bodysnatchers.[3]
    The term was coined by The Specials' keyboard player Jerry Dammers, who — with the assistance of Horace Panter and graphic designer John "Teflon" Sims — created the iconic Walt Jabsco logo (a man in a black suit, white shirt, black tie, pork pie hat, white socks and black loafers) to represent the 2 Tone genre. The logo was based on an early album cover photo of Peter Tosh, and included an added black-and-white check pattern.[6][7][8]
    Most of the bands considered to be part of the 2 Tone genre were signed to 2 Tone Records at some point. Other record labels associated with the 2 Tone sound were Stiff Records and Go Feet Records. The music was especially popular among skinheadsrudiesand some mod revivalists.wiki link-a music that was very much part of the music scene around southend-on -sea during the 80s and saw i lot of people coping style of clothes .

    music can boost your immune system

    Making a healthy racket: Elvis Presley impersonators at a street party in Baker Street, central London Scientists found that after listening to just 50 minutes of uplifting dance music, the levels of antibodies in volunteers' bodies increased.
    They also found that stress hormone levels, which can weaken the immune system, decreased after being exposed to the music.
    Volunteers who played a percussion instrument along with the music also benefited from the immune boost.
    The researchers, from Sussex University and the Max Planck Institute in Leipzig, Germany, say their findings demonstrate how music could be used to help aid patients' recovery while in hospital.

    Indonesian province’s bizarre annual ritual of digging up its dead to give them a wash, groom and dress them in new clothes

    Zombieland: The bodies resemble something out of a horror film as they are dug up every year to be washed and dressed up in new clothesThey say the dead live on in our hearts and minds - but in one Indonesian province, the deceased continue to walk the earth in a rather more literal, zombie-like fashion. 
    Families in Toraja in South Sulawesi dig up the bodies of their dead relatives before washing, grooming and dressing them in fancy new clothes. 
    Even dead children are exhumed - two of these photos show the skeleton of a baby wrapped in a print dress with a doll laid next to it. 
    Damaged coffins are fixed or replaced, and the mummies are then walked around the province by following a path of straight lines. 
    The ritual is called Ma'nene, or The Ceremony of Cleaning Corpses.
     According to the ancient Torajan belief system, the spirit of a dead person must return to his village of origin. 
    So if a person died on a journey, the family would go to the place of death and accompany the deceased back home by walking them back to the village.
    In the past, people were frightened to journey far, in case they died while they were away and were unable to return to their village.read more
