Cow With 3-Eyes Discovered In UK

A North Wales farm vet has seen animals with all kinds of deformities – but never one quite so strange as a three-eyed calf.

Pwllheli’s Malan Hughes was TB-testing cattle at a farm in Gwynedd when she spotted the bizarre-looking animal.

Already around four months old, the calf was otherwise in fine fettle.

“Vets tend to see all sorts of things - cyclops lambs and animals born with two heads – but I have never seen anything like this before,” she said.

Teenage girl found in boat drifting for 22 days at sea

A 17-year-old from Ivory Coast has shared her incredible story of being rescued after spending three weeks adrift at sea.

Out of 59 passengers, Aicha is one of only three to survive - recovering after 10 days in hospital.

It's the biggest known tragedy involving migrant boats in the Canary Islands.

Aicha left her hometown in November and travelled to Mauritania, where she got the boat. Only her older sister knew of her plans to make the perilous journey.

She was rescued by a Spanish Air Force crew member, who she has now been reunited with.

EU Visitors Facing Trauma At UK Border

Hostile UK border regime traumatises visitors from EU

Italian woman visiting family was locked up in detention centre as they waited at the airport, Guardian told

Britain’s hostile regime for potential EU migrants is traumatising visitors caught in its web and provoking further worries for European families receiving visits from relatives, according to accounts provided to the Guardian.

The slightest suspicion that someone may be entering Britain to work is often enough for them to be locked up, held at detention centres for up to a week and then expelled to wherever they have travelled from, some of those caught up by the policy have said. Complaints from relatives and host families in the UK have either gone unanswered or been ignored by the Home Office and some local MPs, they say.

At the closing session of the just concluded 40th Anniversary of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, Church Gist explored the site of the Ark Project. Earlier Bishop David Oyedepo had confirmed our claim that it was a 109,000 capacity sanctuary. The Ark is going to be a 109,345 capacity auditorium. What is however interesting is that presently, Faith Tabernacle sits 51,400 with an overflow of 52,000. This means that on completion of the project (without considering any other new developments) the whole Ark facility including Faith Tabernacle will take 212,735 people at once. Consequently 5 services on a Sunday will take well over 1,050,000 people. One of the prophecies received in 1982 was that ‘very soon we would see millions gathered’. Though millions have been gathering online, the fulfillment of the prophecy of gathering in person seems on the horizon.

Further inquiries by Church Gist discovered that a very solid foundation is being prepared for the project.

Broadly speaking, foundations can be classified as shallow foundations and deep foundations. Shallow footings are usually used when the bearing capacity of the surface soil is adequate to carry the loads imposed by a structure. On the other hand, deep foundations are usually used when the bearing capacity of the surface soil is not sufficient to carry the loads imposed by a structure. So, the loads have to be transferred to a deeper level where the soil layer has a higher bearing capacity.

For the Ark Project, a deep foundation was opted for, considering the fact that the Structure has a foundation depth of 21 meters or about 69 feet.

Church Gist.A deep foundation transfers building loads to the earth farther down from the surface than a shallow foundation does to a subsurface layer or a range of depths.

Pile foundations are principally used to transfer the loads from superstructures, through weak, compressible strata or water onto stronger, more compact, less compressible and stiffer soil or rock at depth, increasing the effective size of a foundation and resisting horizontal loads.

While it is yet to be announced, sources have speculated to Church Gist that the project which far exceeds N100 billion ($200 million) will be completed as soon as 3 years from now or 2024.

The pictures of latest developments at the site are shown below.

Home Office U-turn on coronavirus right to work checks

As far as odd decisions go, it was up there with the best. The Home Office announced on 20 April that its concession to enable employers to conduct right to work checks virtually — for the safety of their workforce during the pandemic — was to be scrapped from 17 May.

Let’s make HR staff and employees go into the office for no other reason at all than to conduct right to work checks.

Let’s do this despite the fact that the government’s own guidance saysthat “from 17 May: you should continue to work from home if you can”.

And let’s also do it despite the fact that the right to work of many non-UK workers can now be checked online anyway; manual checks involve dragging mainly British citizens into the office to have their British passport examined.

Thankfully someone in the senior echelons of the Home Office has seen sense and a hastily announced update (i.e. a U-turn) has been published today. Virtual right to work checks are now allowed up to and including 20 June rather than 16 May. This aligns with step 4 on the “roadmap out of lockdown” for England rather than step 3.

There’s no apology to employers who will have made arrangements to get their HR teams and others safely into the office to conduct in-person (if socially distanced) right to work checks in four days’ time. Such arrangements can now be reversed.

We’ll update our coronavirus pagewith the new deadline for resuming in-person checks shortly.

OMG: Frog The Size of a Human Baby!

Villagers in the Solomon Islands have been left stunned after finding a frog the size of a human baby weighing almost a kilo.

Footage shows the amphibian - a Cornufer guppyi frog - propped up on a local villager's knee after it had been found in the nearby bush in April.
