The giant fin whale likely died at sea, officials told local news outlets, noting that it had been spotted floating in the water about eight miles offshore before it arrived. It showed no outward signs of trauma, Tony LaCasse, the New England Aquarium’s media relations director, told reporters, adding that facility's marine mammal team and experts from the International Fund for Animal Welfare were still investigating why it died.

  • Cruise ship survivor plucked out of sea 'a stupid woman' says mother of liner's boss

    Golocal247.com news

    A passenger who survived ten hours in the sea is a “stupid woman” who must have jumped off the ship, the mother of the cruise line’s president has told the Telegraph. Kay Longstaff, 46, an air hostess, was accused of causing massive disruption to fellow passengers while costing Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) hundreds of thousands of pounds in compensation. Allegations surfaced on Monday suggesting Miss Longstaff had been arguing with her boyfriend in the hours before she plunged into the Adriatic Sea from the seventh deck of the liner about 75 ft above the water. Fellow passengers expressed anger towards Miss Longstaff and Norwegian Cruise Line for the chaos and disruption her actions had caused. Many also suggested there was no way she could have accidentally fallen from the ship, insisting that the security barriers were simply too too high to topple over. The 83-year-old mother of Andy Stuart, the cruise company’s president and chief executive, said her son had been dismayed by continuing reports that Miss Longstaff’s “fell” off the back of the Norwegian Star. Kay Longstaff being rescued Mr Stuart telephoned his mother at her home in England from his office in Miami, Florida, to complain about Miss Longstaff’s version of events, calling it ‘fake news’. Miss Longstaff, who moved from Cheltenham, Gloucs, to Spain in 2016, had told a Croatian television news channel after being rescued: “I fell off the back of the Norwegian Star and I was in the water for ten hours... I was sitting at the back of the deck.” Where Kay Longstaff went overboard Mr Stuart's mother contacted the Daily Telegraph to protest that her son’s company was being wrongly blamed for the incident. His mother said: “She didn’t fall off. She jumped. This has cost Norwegian Cruise Line $600,000. This stupid woman. “I spoke to Andrew at  lunchtime. He phones me almost every day. What he said was ‘this is fake news’. He said that she couldn’t have fallen. You would have to take steps to climb over the railings. He said she jumped in the water.” Norwegian Star His mother went on: “He [Andrew] doesn’t get upset. But he is annoyed that it has been implied that NCL was at fault. He said NCL went to a lot of trouble. They delayed the progress of the ship and sent for the coastguard. If you think of the cost of the ship being delayed, passengers missing their connections, passengers waiting to embark. That has all amounted to more than $600,000. When you get criticism, it is highly unfair.” Mr Stuart, 55, took up his role in 2015 and had been with NCL for 27 years. He earns a reported £1m a year in salary.   Kay Longstaff falls overboard - Timeline of events According to reports, Miss Longstaff had been caught up in a row with her partner aboard the ship. He was asleep in their cabin when Miss Longstaff fell overboard at 11.45pm on Saturday night. It is understood that CCTV footage captured the incident and has established that no third party was involved. Daniel Punch, who works on the Norwegian Star in promotions, posted on Facebook according to reports: “She didn’t fall, she jumped. It was on my ship. I spoke [to her] throughout the whole week. She was arguing with her fella the whole time.” Miss Longstaff was found by Croatian coastguard at 9.45am on Sunday and taken to hospital for treatment in the Croatian resort of Pula. She said her yoga fitness and singing helped her to survive. Andy Stuart As she was released from hospital yesterday into the care of her partner, Italian sources suggested she had argued with her partner before he went back to his cabin and left her on the deck. "The footage has been viewed and you can clearly see she was there on her own when she fell,” a source told SunOnline. “She was not pushed. The theory we are working on is that she most likely jumped.” Kay Longstaff with Craig Rayment Irena Hrstic, director of Pula’s City Hospital, said Ms Longstaff had refused to release a statement because she “can’t understand why there is so much interest for her”. David Radas, spokesman for Croatian Ministry of Maritime Affairs, said its investigation was continuing. On Sunday night, Mr Radas said that CCTV images had “left a suspicion whether it was a jump or a falling off”. Miss Longstaff has posted photographs of herself on the Costa del Sol in Spain with Craig Rayment, an electrician, who she was dating as recently as June 15. It is not clear if Mr Rayment was on the cruise with her and he declined to comment yesterday. “I’m not interested in talking,” he said. Miss Longstaff’s father Ron Longstaff, 76, a retired chief superintendent with West Midlands Police, said he had no idea how his daughter had ended up in the sea. “She was certainly lucky. I am trying to work out what happened,” said Mr Longstaff. Miss Longstaff after her rescue Bethany Joyce, 21, from Long Island, who was on board with her parents, said her mother planned to claim compensation as they had been forced to spend an extra two nights in Venice before the next available flight home. She told the Telegraph: “The cruise line was very unhelpful with helping us rebook travel plans. The only thing they gave us was 15 minutes of free WiFi to try and rebook travel arrangements. “Disembarkation was also a mess. We had to sit around for hours just waiting for vague instructions.” Passengers said they arrived in Venice at around 2.30pm on Sunday but did not disembark until 5.30pm. Miss Longstaff Scott Bailey, a businessman from Derby, wrote on Twitter: “Just upsets me that she is there smiling away and loving the publicity saying she ‘fell’. “The only way you could get off the ship is by climbing over the protective barriers and then jumping. Someone we spoke to said they had seen her crying earlier on.” Another passenger, who called himself Eddiepal, also complained that he had missed his flights home to Boston meaning his holiday had a “rotten ending”. Responding to suggestions that Miss Longstaff had somehow slipped into the water, he said “Next to impossible...take it from someone on board....” He accused the cruise line of mistreating passengers and leaving them stranded in Venice for several hours. NCL did not respond to requests for comment on passengers' complaints. Mr Stuart declined to comment on the contents of the call with his mother or the incident while an investigation remained ongoing. A former passenger wrote online: “I was on the Star recently and spent quite a long time on that Deck 7 Aft area.. and if this lady departed the ship there it was definitely not an accidental fall. There are no chairs and the side rails are much more than waist high.” Miss Longstaff is thought to have worked for British Airways for some years before working as a flight attendant with a private jet company. She quit the UK to live in Spain in June 2016 posting a photograph on social media, captioned: “My new life.”

The study used data from 10 climate-change models and found that natural variabilities were the cause of a global warming “hiatus” in the early 2000s.

  • Flash flood kills 10 hikers in Italian mountain gorge as rescuers say it hit like 'a tsunami'

    Golocal247.com news

    An eight-year-old girl survived a devastating flash flood in a canyon in southern Italy but was found next to a body that rescuers believe may be one of her parents. The girl, named as Chiara, was semi-conscious, covered in thick mud and suffering from hypothermia when she was found in the gorge in Calabria after it was hit by a “tsunami” of muddy water following a severe storm. The seven-mile-long canyon, located in Pollino national park, has 2,300ft-high sheer rock walls which in some places are just 13ft apart. At least two groups of hikers were caught up in the disaster on Monday. While some were able to scramble to higher ground, others were engulfed by the flash flood and drowned. Ten people were killed, with some bodies washed up to three miles downstream by the force of the torrent. Eleven people were injured, five of them seriously. Four children lost either one or both of their parents.

We found her next to a corpse and from what we know, her parents are almost certainly among the victims,” said Pasquale Gagliardi, a doctor with the local helicopter rescue service.

Antonio De Rasis, 32, was guiding hikers through the gorge when it was hit by the 8ft-high wall of water. “With his experience, he would definitely have tried to help the group as much as possible,” said Antonio Carlomagno, the mayor of the town where Mr De Rasis came from. The flash flood also claimed the lives of two models, Miriam Mezzolla, 27, and Claudia Giampietro, 31, who were said to be inseparable and shared a passion for burlesque dancing.

These are events that happen once in a lifetime,” said Giacomo Zanfei, a senior official with the mountain rescue service.

The canyoning disaster comes just a week after the collapse of the Morandi bridge in Genoa, which killed 43 people. Raganello gorges in Pollino National Park, Calabria Credit: DEA/V. GIANNELLA  "Italy is tired of crying for the dead. Enough," said Sergio Costa, the environment minister, during a visit to the scene. "If what happened is the result of negligence, sloppiness or a lack of awareness of the risks, we are facing a serious situation that we need to get to the bottom of." “The whole country is deeply saddened by this new tragedy, which has caused many deaths and injuries in Pollino national park,” said Sergio Mattarella, Italy’s president.

  • Afghanistan waits for Taliban response to truce offer

    Golocal247.com news

    Afghanistan was waiting Monday for a Taliban response to President Ashraf Ghani's suggestion of a three-month ceasefire, an offer welcomed by the United States and NATO after 17 years of war. Ghani unveiled the government’s latest gambit during an Independence Day address late Sunday, saying security forces would observe the truce beginning this week -- but only if the Taliban reciprocated. The move followed an extraordinarily violent week in Afghanistan that saw that Taliban storm the provincial capital of Ghazni -- just a two hour drive from Kabul -- and press the fight against security forces across the country, resulting in hundreds of deaths.

  • Some Venezuelans, alarmed by Maduro's measures, speed up plans to flee

    Maduro on Friday stunned the South American nation by announcing a 96 percent devaluation and vowing to peg the bolivar currency to Venezuela's new 'petro', a cryptocurrency that experts have cast doubt on as a functional financial instrument. "I am looking for flights to leave on Wednesday, any way I can," Narvaez said in Venezuela's western oil hub of Punto Fijo, home to massive but deteriorated oil refineries. "I am sure this is going to get worse because the man's ideas lack all logic." Maduro, who argues that he is the victim of a Washington-led "economic war" designed to sabotage his administration through sanctions, said that using the petro will abolish the "tyranny" of the dollar and lead to an economic rebirth in Venezuela, an OPEC member state home to the world's biggest crude oil reserves.

  • Imran Khan to scrap hundreds of  staff and move to three-bed home as he pledges new austerity drive for Pakistan

    Golocal247.com news

    Imran Khan has said he will forego the lavish lodgings normally used by Pakistan's prime ministers and instead live in a three-bedroom house, with only two servants rather than hundreds, as he prepared the country for an austerity drive. The newly sworn-in leader used his first address to the nation to rail against waste as his country faces a severe economic crisis. The former cricket hero said it was shameful that the sprawling prime minister's house had 524 staff and a fleet of 80 vehicles, 33 of them bulletproof.  The cars are to be sold off with only two kept for the new prime minister. “ I want to tell my people, I will live a simple life, I will save your money,” he said. The 65-year-old will live in a three-bed residence normally reserved for the military secretary. Pakistani men watch a television broadcasting Imran Khan's speech Credit: ABDUL MAJEED/AFP Pakistan's new prime minister Imran Khan speaks to the nation in his first televised address in Islamabad Credit: REUTERS He also used his Sunday evening address to call on the rich to start paying taxes and for Pakistani's living overseas to send their money back to domestic banks to help the country's foreign currency crisis. In a 70-minute speech he repeated many of his populist campaign talking points, but offered little detail of how he will stave off an impending economic crisis which his own finance minister has said is dire. Opposition parties also complained that he failed to mention how the country would deal with growing extremism, which Mr Khan has been accused of emboldening by invoking hardline issues like blasphemy on the campaign trail. Pakistan is said to need an urgent bailout of around $12bn to stave off a looming crisis. Loans from China, Saudi Arabia or the International Monetary Fund are all understood to be under consideration. But he complained that the country was in a spiral of debt, borrowing to pay off the interest on earlier loans, and would lose respect by begging elsewhere for money. Instead, he called on Pakistani expats to send their money back home. He said: “I want you to bring your money to Pakistan. To keep your money in Pakistani banks. Right now we are short on dollars. There is a huge trade gap right now.” Mr Khan also spoke of his country's need to tackle poverty and malnutrition and promised to reduce some of the world's highest maternal death rates and infant mortality rates. He said Pakistan was in severe danger from climate change and spoke about the need to educate the 22.8 million Pakistani children who are out of school. Meanwhile his new foreign minister said on Monday that he wanted talks with neighbouring India and Afghanistan. Shah Mahmood Qureshi, also stressed that the civilian government would determine foreign policy, potentially putting Mr Khan's new administration on a collision with the powerful military. Pakistan's generals have ruled the country for much of its history and view policy on national security, India and Afghanistan as their realm. Mr Qureshi said that "the foreign policy of Pakistan will be formed here at the foreign office."

    Venezuela has agreed to pay a $2 billion settlement to US oil giant ConocoPhillips, to stop the seizure of the South American nation's assets, the American firm announced Monday. PDVSA, the state oil company once the crown jewel of Venezuela's now imploding economy, will make initial payments of $500 million over the next 90 days, ConocoPhillips said in a statement. In return, ConocoPhillips said it agreed to halt the seizure of PDVSA's oil and assets in the Caribbean -- which it took over after Caracas failed to honor an April 25 ruling by an international arbitrator.
