news poisoning

Did David Ayer, who is slated to direct and produce Gotham City Sirens, give a hint to who the villain will be for the film?

He posted this shot of Black Mask from the graphic novel Batman: Under the Red Hood on his Twitter account. 

Sirens is an idea that Margot Robbie (aka Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad) pitched to Warner Bros. back in May. The movie will reunite Ayer and Robbie who both worked on Suicide Squad together. The film will focus on three of Batman’s toughest female foes: Catwoman, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy.

Tragic news for Africa’s most famous TV star lions - Marsh pride poisoned

Two of the lions died after eating a poisoned cow carcass, while one more is missing and at least five are being treated by vets.

THESE lions stole the heart of animal lovers worldwide when the BBC filmed the hugely popular  BBC TV series Big Cat Diary in Marsh Pride territory from 1996 to 2008.

Now, tragedy has struck the famous pride. Eight members of the pride of lions have been poisoned in Kenya’s Masai Mara reserve. Two lions died after eating a poisoned cow carcass on Saturday night. 

One more is missing and at least five are being treated by vets, a conservation group and a BBC wildlife crew at the scene said. “I am sick to the heart to hear of the poisoning of the Marsh Pride lions, and horrified to think of the pain they suffered as they died,” said Saba Douglas-Hamilton, a Kenyan conservationist and television presenter who worked on Big Cat Diary. 

Jonathan Scott, a zoologist and one of the show’s original presenters who has been following the Marsh Pride for nearly 40 years, lamented the poisoning as the “end of an era”. 

Among the dead lions was 17-year old female Bibi, who had become something of a celebrity during the TV series’ long and hugely popular run from 1996-2008.

The BBC crew said Bibi was found “lying on her side, foaming at the mouth, fitting and panting” before she died.

Conservationists first noticed something was wrong on Sunday morning when some of the lions, “were acting strangely collapsing and suffering from spasms,” according to a statement from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust which funds a mobile veterinary unit in the reserve.

Local cattle-herders who frequently bring their animals into the Masai Mara National Reserve to graze are suspected of the poisoning. “Tens of thousands of cattle encroach into the reserve every night when visitors are safely out of sight,” said Scott. 

The grazing cattle are hunted by lions, bringing the herders into conflict with the cats. “There is nothing shocking anymore as to what is happening in the Masai Mara,” he added, blaming years of “appalling management” by local authorities. 

In a statement Paula Kahumbu, chief executive of conservation group Wildlife Direct, condemned the poisoners as, “stupid, sick, cruel, and short-sighted people.” 

Three men were due to be charged with poisoning the lions, according to the Kenya Wildlife Service, and could face a maximum 20 million shilling ($196,000) fine or life imprisonment if found guilty. “May they rot in jail,” Kahumbu said.

Last year, the city of Flint, Michigan, burst into the world spotlight after its children were exposed to lead in drinking water and some were poisoned. In the year after Flint switched to corrosive river water that leached lead from old pipes, 5 percent of the children screened there had high blood lead levels.

Flint is no aberration. In fact, it doesn’t even rank among the most dangerous lead hotspots in America.

In all, Reuters found nearly 3,000 areas with recently recorded lead poisoning rates at least double those in Flint during the peak of that city’s contamination crisis. And more than 1,100 of these communities had a rate of elevated blood tests at least four times higher.

The poisoned places on this map stretch from Warren, Pennsylvania, a town on the Allegheny River where 36 percent of children tested had high lead levels, to a zip code on Goat Island, Texas, where a quarter of tests showed poisoning. In some pockets of Baltimore, Cleveland and Philadelphia, where lead poisoning has spanned generations, the rate of elevated tests over the last decade was 40 to 50 percent.

'Plastic rice' seized in Nigeria - BBC News
Nigeria confiscates 2.5 tonnes of "plastic rice" smuggled into the country from China, officials say.

This is seriously awful and could cost lives. I’m probably not the first person to have put it up but please help get the word out. This is apparently almost impossible to tell from real rice.  I’m really worried this will have been mixed with real rice and someone will end up eating it accidentally.

If you’re worried about your rice smell it, the article says it still has a slight chemical smell. Or boil a little bit, apparently once it’s cooked you can clearly tell the difference.

yeah i suck at storytelling. oh well. enjoy

allieverdoisread asked: Could you do a sick!dean/cas I’m with my family on vacation with food poisoning so I can’t enjoy the fun in the sun and your stories cheer me up. They’re awesome

Dean groaned and pressed his face against the cool tile of the bathroom floor.

“Are you okay?” Castiel asked from the doorway. Dean groaned again.

“I’m dying,” He said. “We haven’t even been married twenty-four hours and I’m going to die.

"You’re not dying.”

“I am.” Dean jolted up and emptied his stomach into the toilet again. “Just leave me here and go find some cabana boy to share the life insurance money with.”

“I’m going to run to the closest store and try to find something to settle your stomach.”

“You ate on the plane, too. Why am I the only one in hell?”

“I told you not to eat anything that wasn’t sealed,” Castiel reminded. “They had a story on the news about food poisoning on flights.”

“I told you we should have went somewhere within driving distance.”

Dean heard Castiel come closer an turn on the sink. A moment later a cool wash cloth was dabbing at the sweat and mess on his face. He sighed and leaned into it.

“I’ll be back as soon as I can, okay? Call me if you need anything.” Castiel kissed his forehead. “I love you.”

“I love you, too. Hurry back.”

Castiel ran his fingers through Dean’s hair, then stood up and left the room. Dean sat up and threw up again. 

Some honeymoon.

~*~

Dean woke up from a restless sleep and buried his face in a pillow.

“Drink that ginger ale, Dean,” Castiel called from the small kitchen. Dean raised a hand to flip him off. “Maybe later if you’re feeling better. Drink up.”

With a sigh, Dean sat up and picked up the glass with a shaky hand. He sipped slowly until half of the liquid was gone, then laid down again. Castiel came in a moment later with a bowl in his hands.

“What’s that?” Dean mumbled.

“Tomato rice soup.” Dean looked up, surprised. “I called your mom and asked what she usually did when you were sick. She gave me the recipe.”

“You didn’t have to go through all that trouble,” Dean said, thinking of the process he watched his mother go through every time someone was sick.

“It wasn’t any trouble, Dean. I want you to feel better.” Castiel touched his cheek. “Will you try to eat? It’s probably not as good as your mothers, but maybe it will help.” Dean kissed Castiel’s palm.

“Thank you, Cas.”

“This is what married people do.”

Dean smiled a little, then sat up. He did feel a little better since he’d had something to drink. He ate a spoonful of soup and nodded.

“This is really good. Especially for your first try.”

“I’m glad.”

Dean ate the whole bowl slowly and laid back down. Castiel took the empty dish back to the kitchen, then came back into the room with Dean. Dean grabbed him and pulled him down next to him.

“Nap with me?”

“Sure.” Dean kissed his forehead then rested his cheek against his hair.

“I’m sorry I ruined our honeymoon.”

“You didn’t. We still have a few days to spare.” Castiel ran his fingertips over his cheek. “Besides, a crash course in married life is never a bad thing early on.”

“So seeing me sweaty and disgusting didn’t ruin the trip?” Dean asked skeptically.

“It wasn’t pleasant,” Castiel conceded, running his fingers through Dean’s hair. “But, trust me, the honeymoon phase definitely isn’t over."
