Iranian Police Seize 1.5 tons of Narcotics

© Unknown
Iranian Law Enforcement Police forces seized nearly 1.5 tons of opium in the town of Manoujan in Iran's Southeastern province of Kerman yesterday, the provincial police commander announced on Wednesday.

Kerman's Police Chief General Hossein Chenarian said his forces imposed control on provincial transit routes after a series of intelligence measures showed that drug-traffickers planned to transfer a large cargo to Iran's Southern province of Hormozgan via Kerman.

He said the police forces stopped a van after armed clashes with drug-traffickers at a checkpoint near Manoujan and seized 1,432kg of opium from traffickers.

Iran lies on a major drug route between Afghanistan and Europe as well as the Persian Gulf states. Since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, the Iranian police have lost more than 3720 of their personnel in the country's combat against narcotics.

Owing to its rigid efforts, Iran makes 89 percent of the world's total opium seizures and has turned into the leading country in [the anti-]drug campaign.

The anti-drug squads of the Iranian Law Enforcement Police have intensified their countrywide campaign against drug-trafficking through staging long-term systematic operations in recent months.

The Iranian anti-narcotic police have always staged periodic, but short-term, operations against drug traffickers and dealers, but the latest reports - which among others indicate an improved and systematic dissemination of information - reveal that the world's most forefront and dedicated anti-narcotic force (as UN drug-campaign assessments put it) has embarked on a long-term countrywide plan to crack down on the drug trade since the beginning of the current Iranian year.

Comment: Amazing, 89% of the worlds Opium seizures. Surely some empirical nation holds some hatred toward them for that.

Researchers Criticized For Brutal Way of Carrying Out Research on Amblyopia

© Top News US
Researchers from the Cardiff University in order to analyze the development of brain, in case the person was unable to see since birth, they sewed the eyelids of 31 kittens.

It has been discovered that a group of kittens was denied vision immediately after birth for the next 12 weeks, and the other group, were allowed to visualize initially, but later on even their eyes were sewed.

Researchers emphasized that the study was carried out in order to understand as to how brain responds to the signals sent to it by eyes, in case of amblyopia, or 'lazy eye', a condition have an effect on two to four % of children.

However, Michelle Thew, Chief Executive of the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection, said: "This is unacceptable cruel research. We know the public will be shocked to learn of publicly-funded experiments in which kittens have been subjected to unpleasant procedures".

Opposing the criticism, a spokesman from the university affirmed that they could not have used any other method. It was explained that cats are similar to humans in few respects, like in this case of developing severe amblyopia, which is exactly similar to the way in which humans develop the condition and under same circumstances.

The research was allowed by Home Office and the University's own ethics board.

More Than a Third of US Births Unintended

More that one-third of U.S. births between 2006 and 2010 were the result of unintended pregnancies, a new government report says. That means the overall rate of unintended births has not changed much since 1982.

The findings showed that in total, 37.1 percent of pregnancies in 2006 to 2010 were unintended; the rate in 1982 was 36.5 percent. The rate rose to 39.1 in 1988, before falling to 30.6 in 1995.

Reducing the rate of unintended births is important because these births bring social, economic and health consequences for the mother and child, the researchers said. Women who become pregnant unintentionally have higher rates of delaying prenatal care, smoking during pregnancy and not breast-feeding. Studies show these births are also associated with poorer health during childhood, and poorer outcomes for the mother and the mother-child relationship, according to the report.

Among married women, 23.4 percent of births were unintended, the data from 2006-2010 showed. Half of births to unmarried women living with a partner were unintended.

Among women who were unmarried and not living with a partner, 66.9 percent of births were unintended, a rise from the 2002 rate of 59.5. The highest rate of unintended births was seen in young women in this group - 78.9 percent of births to unmarried women ages 15 to 24 were unintended, the report said.


PTSD Epidemic: One in Eight Soldiers Has Attacked Someone After Returning from War


One in eight soldiers has attacked someone after coming home, a new study has found
  • Study found direct link between combat and violence at home
  • A third of victims were someone in the family
  • Former soldier Aaron Wilkinson was jailed last month for killing his landlady
  • He was found to have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after returning from active combat in Afghanistan
One in eight soldiers has attacked someone after coming home from fighting.

The Kings Centre for Military Health Research spoke to 13,000 veterans from the Afghanistan and Iraq wars and said they discovered a link between combat and trauma, and violence at home, often directed at their partners.

A third of the victims were someone in the family - often a wife or girlfriend, the study found.

Comment: PTSD is a huge epidemic, but far from being committed to helping support returning vets, the governments have been accused of making mental health care virtually unavailable to thousands of discharged soldiers through perfunctory exams, delays in referrals and treatment, and a prolonged and complex system of awarding medical benefits. Because the truth is that the psychopaths in power really don't care what happens to the vets or any of the rest of us:

'Up-by-his-bootstraps' Romney Ad Star Built His Business using Government-sponsored Loans

The up-by-his-bootstraps businessman who stars in an ad for Republican hopeful Mitt Romney seems to have built his business through government-sponsored loans, putting a dent in the campaign's attack on President Barack Obama's saying to business owners, "you didn't get there on your own."

"My father's hands didn't build this company? My hands didn't build this company? My son's hands aren't building this company?" New Hampshire businessman Jack Gilchrist, president of Gilchrist Metal, asks in the ad that's been making waves since last week.

Reporting by The New Hampshire Union Leader disputed this claim by looking into Gilchrist's history, revealing that he took over $1 million in government loans since the 1980s, including $800,000 in tax-exempt bonds issued by the New Hampshire Business Finance Authority to build a new manufacturing plant and buy equipment. Gilchrist also admitted to the paper that he took a U.S. Small Business Administration loan of "somewhere south of" $500,000 in the 1980s, and said that to this day about 10 percent of his business comes from defense-related projects.

Video: 10-Year-Old Brutally Bullied by Teens with Cigarette Lighter

A video (below) showing 10-year-old Cequan Haskins being bullied and attacked for 40 minutes, on a school bus, by two 15-year-old bullies in May 2011 has recently been released.

The Appomattox County, Virginia teens used racial and sexual slurs, while they burned Haskins repeatedly with a cigarette lighter.

On the video, Haskins can be heard screaming and pleading with the teens to stop, but they continue the bullying and tell him to "sit down and shut your mouth."

Haskins' mother, Roxanne Haskins, released the video at a press conference on Friday. She told WSET-TV: "I wanted parents to be aware, that when I speak out, I'm speaking out for all kids. But unfortunately, this did happen to my child, and I want parents to be aware of what's going on in the school system."


Man finds 248 human foetuses dumped in Russian forest

A Russian fishing trip turned to horror when a man collecting firewood in the dead of night stumbled across hundreds of human foetuses scattered in the woods.

The 248 embryos, most of which were already formed into babies' bodies, had been stashed inside four huge vats of formaldehyde and dumped near the town of Nevyansk, in the industrial heartland of Russia's Ural Mountains.

It is unclear how long the 15-centimetre bodies, aged between 12 and 16 weeks, had been lying in the dusty wilderness but some had shrunk as if mummified.

Chilling: Mystery shrouds the horrifying discovery which has sparked a full-scale police investigation into how and why the bodies were ditched in such unceremonious fashion.

One theory is that they were illegally dumped after being used for scientific experimentation.
