    A man thought he saw 'an alien' while on a stroll along a Scottish beach - but it turned out to be a type of worm called a 'sea mouse'. Mike Arnott, 33, was taking a stroll along his local Portobello Beach, Edinburgh, yesterday when the creature caught his eye. He found a strange green fluorescent object on the sand while the tide was out. The engineer originally thought it was a moss-covered pine cone before realising it was alive. The sea mouse is marine worm covered in iridescent bristles that shimmer blue, green and gold. It is an active predator that hunts small crabs and other worms on the seabed.  The sea mouse gets its scientific name from Aphrodite - the Greek Goddess of Love.  Mike Arnott saw this 'sea mouse' worm (pictured) when he was walking on Portobello beach in Edinburgh Sea mouse worms are furry oval-shaped creatures that can be found on all UK coastlines He said the idea of it being an alien 'did cross his mind' - because he had no idea what the bright...

    The Republican candidate for Arizona governor Kari Lake said staffers exposed to a mystery white powder at the weekend were 'doing okay' after hazmat teams and bomb squad officers spent seven hours at her campaign headquarters. Speaking to reporters hours after the emergency, she promised to hunt down those responsible. 'I have been so busy campaigning. This happened.

    When divers received a mysterious 'sonar blip' during a dive to the remains of the Titanic in 1998, they were puzzled.  At the time, they thought the sonar transmission in the North Atlantic Ocean was caused by a second shipwreck, a geologic feature or something else entirely.  Now, 24 years later, researchers have found that the blip was caused by a rich underwater ecosystem teeming with sponges, corals, squat lobsters and fish. Video footage shows the 'awe-inspiring' environment that was discovered, which is more than 9,500 feet (2,900 metres) deep off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada.  During the 2022 Titanic Expedition, a rich and dense ecosystem was discovered more than 9,500 feet (2,900 metres) deep near the wreck of the Titanic The ecosystem contains sponges, bamboo corals, other cold-water corals, squat lobsters and fish WHAT IS SONAR? Sonar, short for Sound Navigation and Ranging, is the use of sound waves to 'see' underwater.

    Fishermen across the Pacific northwest face financial ruin after the Alaska Department of Fish and Game canceled the state's lucrative snow crab fishing season in the Bering Sea.  The news will also have a huge bearing on the restaurant industry as price increases and shortages become inevitable. Alaska provides 60 percent of the seafood consumed in the United States. The decision came after an ADF&G study found that billions of snow crabs had disappeared from the region.  Experts are divided on the cause of the disappearance. Some scientists believe the disappearance is related to migration or starvation, both of which would be connected to climate change.  While some believe that it could be connected to an outbreak of disease within the snow crab population.   According to the study, over the last two years, the snow crab population has dropped by around 90 percent.  Snow crab are typically found in Alaska waters in the Bering, Beauford and Chuckchi seas. There are around 65 boats fishing those waters Speaking to KING5, the wife of one of the star's Deadliest Catch, said that the...
    Three Los Angeles City Council members went to a squat office building near MacArthur Park last October to seek advice from an influential labor leader about solidifying their grip on power. The strategy session was supposed to be a discreet backroom conversation, but as it got underway in a private room at the headquarters of the L.A. County Federation of Labor, someone was recording it. Over the next hour, a device captured the Democratic politicians and the labor leader, all Latino, speaking contemptuously about those they regarded as rivals or impediments. The recordings included racist, bigoted and crude remarks about Black, Jewish, Armenian, Indigenous and gay people. “My goal in life is to get the three of you elected, and you know, I’m just focused on that,” Ron Herrera, president of the federation, told Councilmembers Nury Martinez, Gil Cedillo and Kevin de León at one point. “I mean, we’re like the little Latino caucus of, you know, our own.” California L.A. council members made racist comments in leaked audio.

    It's a question that has puzzled scientists for hundreds of years – how exactly did our moon form? Since the 1970s, astronomers have suspected that the moon was created when a giant protoplanet called Theia struck Earth. However, the nature of this collision and what happened immediately after has been subject to debate. Some scientists believe that the collision created a vast cloud of debris, which coalesced into the moon over time. However, in a new study, researchers from the University of Durham claim that the giant impact immediately placed the moon into orbit around Earth. Vincent Eke, co-author of the study, said: 'This formation route could help explain the similarity in isotopic composition between the lunar rocks returned by the Apollo astronauts and Earth's mantle. 'There may also be observable consequences for the thickness of the lunar crust, which would allow us to pin down further the type of collision that took place.' In a new study, researchers from the University of Durham claim that the giant impact immediately placed the moon into orbit around Earth (artist's impression pictured)...
    Hundreds of whales have become stranded after washing ashore on Tasmania's west coast.  The mass stranding occurred near Macquarie Harbour, south of Strahan, on Wednesday, officials with the Department of Natural Resources and Environment confirmed.  It comes just two days after 14 sperm whales died after they became stranded on King Island, off Tasmania's north-west coast, in a marine mystery that's baffled experts.

    Prince William and other senior royals faced a mysterious hour-long delay as they rushed to see the Queen before she died on Thursday.  The RAF jet - which also had Prince Andrew, Prince Edward and his wife Sophie on board - had taken off for Balmoral at 2.39pm despite being scheduled to leave at 1.30pm, The Sun reports.  At 3.50pm the plane, a Dassault Falcon, landed at Aberdeen airport. The reason for the last-minute hold-up at RAF Northolt in South Ruislip is not yet known. Prince Harry was not on the plane and had to make his own journey to Scotland because a crash would have sparked a constitutional crisis, experts have suggested.  It is believed that the Duke of Sussex was furious that he did not make it to Balmoral in time, arriving two hours after his beloved grandmother's death.  Today, the Queen's coffin left her beloved Balmoral Castle to begin its 500-mile journey to Buckingham Palace, with thousands lining the route to pay their respects to the late monarch.

    Ousted WeWork founder Adam Neumann has drummed up major interest in his mystery real estate venture, securing $350 million in funding from Silicon Valley investors, valuing the company at $1 billion before it even opens its doors. Neumann, 43, has said over the past few months he plans to create a widely-recognizable apartment brand stacked with community features to lure in the same kind of young professionals who have taken advantage of WeWork's co-working spaces. Still, not much is known about his plans for Flow, which is set to debut in cities like Atlanta, Miami and Nashville next year. A website for the project just says: 'Live life in Flow. Coming 2023.' But despite the public vagueness of the project, Flow has already generated a lot of interest, with Andreessen Horowitz, a prominent Silicon Valley venture capital firm that was an early investor in Facebook and Airbnb, valuing it at $1 billion. The firm has now invested about $350 million into the company — the largest individual check it has ever written in a round of funding to a corporation, the New...

    Two sisters whose decomposing bodies were found in a south-western Sydney apartment come from a well-connected Saudi Arabian family, sources say. Asra Abdullah Alsehli, 24, and Amaal Abdullah Alsehli, 23, were found dead in their first-floor unit in Canterbury on June 7.  Their remains lay in separate bedrooms for a month before they were discovered by authorities who were trying to evict them for failing to pay rent. The case has been shrouded in mystery from the beginning - police conducted three welfare checks on the sisters before they died, there were no signs of forced entry at the unit, no clear sings of injury, and the cause of death remains undetermined. The revelation the dead women are the daughters of a 'well-connected' family in the Saudi Kingdom has further added to the intrigue. The Consulate of Saudi Arabia in Sydney has offered its condolences to the family, which policy say are helping them with their investigation.   The Coroner has not released their bodies back to their family - although it is understood they could be buried in Sydney.

    A Columbia University graduate student is hospitalized with brain trauma after an apparent attack in a New York City subway. Jay Reist, 29, is being monitored in the ICU at New York Presbyterian Hospital in Washington Heights after he was allegedly struck in the head last Friday; it's still unclear to police and Reist's family how - or why - he was so badly wounded. Surveillance video showed Reist exiting a subway station 15th street and 8th Avenue around 2 a.m. before getting into an Uber.  He started seizing while in the rideshare, prompting the driver to take him to the hospital, where he remains on a ventilator.

    The President of Finland abruptly cancelled dinner with The King of Sweden on a remote Finnish island yesterday just hours after Vladimir Putin had smirked to young Russian entrepreneurs about recovering land stolen from Russia. Putin had told his young audience: 'During the war with Sweden, Peter the Great didn't conquer anything, he took back what had always belonged to us, even though all of Europe recognised it as Sweden's.' 'It seems now it's our turn to get our lands back,' he finished with a smile.

    BRAD Pitt’s body double on legendary movie Se7en has revealed for the first time ever how tensions boiled over on the set of its chilling “what’s in the box” final scene.  The neo-noir classic was released almost three decades ago in 1995 and helped turn Pitt, now 58, into one of the world’s biggest movie stars. 7Brad Pitt poses with his body double Richie Varga on the right and director David Fincher on left on the set of Se7enCredit: Coleman-Rayner 7Richie Varga poses for a pic with Kevin Spacey's body doubleCredit: Coleman-Rayner 7Richie says this is the moment tensions boiled over on set while Fincher gave Pitt instructionsCredit: Coleman-Rayner The Oscar-winner played a rookie detective who, with the help of a veteran partner brought to life by Morgan Freeman, hunts a serial killer on a murderous spree inspired by the seven deadly sins.  Se7en's star-studded cast also featured Gwyneth Paltrow, who became Pitt’s girlfriend at the time and played his wife in the film, and now scandal-hit Kevin Spacey. The movie famously climaxes with a cliffhanger ending in the desert...
    Jeff Burbank is a content development specialist at The Mob Museum in Las Vegas. He is the author of Las Vegas Babylon: True Tales of Glitter, Glamour, and Greed. Geoff Schumacher is the museum's vice president of exhibits and programs and author of Sun, Sin & Suburbia: The History of Modern Las Vegas. When mobsters bury their secrets, they expect them to stay hidden. Usually, they're right. But as Nevada's drought-ravaged Lake Mead recedes and sunlight shines on its muddy depths for the first time in decades, we may be getting a glimpse into the dark and sordid mob history of Las Vegas, which lies just 30 miles away. On May 1st, the remains of a decomposed human body stuffed inside a corroded metal barrel were discovered stuck in Lake Mead's mud. The grisly find has all the makings of a gangland hit. Police say the victim was shot in the head, execution-style, and crammed into the drum – historically a mob method for disposing of bodies. The killers transported the barrel by boat several hundred yards out into the...
    The contemporary art market has kicked into overdrive over the last couple of decades, with fresh innovations warping the playing field every five minutes. But since the art market as we know it first came to be, one phenomenon has endured as common practice: buyer anonymity. This week, Christie’s made headlines when the auction house sold Andy Warhol’s portrait of Marilyn Monroe, Shot Sage Blue Marilyn, for an eye-popping sum of $195 million. The sale set a new record for the most expensive 20th century artwork ever sold at auction, and none other than legendary dealer Larry Gagosian was the winner of the bid, but he hasn’t revealed on whose behalf he snapped up the work. The real buyer’s identity remains a closely guarded secret. The buyer who paid over $1 million for a work of “invisible art” at Sotheby’s in April? Anonymous. Who dropped $57.8 million on Picasso’s La Dormeuse in 2018? Phillips would never say unless they’re pushed. With the rise of NFTs, some crypto-happy buyers are beginning to willingly unmask themselves for clout...

    Marilyn Monroe was already a star when, at a New York party, she announced what she wanted most in the world.  Perhaps it was a case of 'in vino veritas', but her confession — according to fashion mogul Henry Rosenfeld, a longtime friend — was extraordinary even for a Hollywood actress who liked to cause a stir. Marilyn, Rosenfeld recalled, declared she'd like 'to put on her black wig, pick up her father in a bar and have him make love to her. Then she'd say: 'How do you feel now to have a daughter that you've made love to?' ' It was a shocking wish, but then the film star believed her father had done her a terrible wrong. Born to a deeply troubled mother who spent most of her time in and out of mental institutions, Monroe embarked on a lifelong quest to confirm the true identity of a father she never met.  The actress famously sang 'My heart belongs to Daddy' — but who exactly was 'Daddy'? Monroe believed she knew: a dashing and good-looking entrepreneur with...
    Seven more cases of severe hepatitis have been detected in California, and a child has died in Wisconsin, as the mysterious disease spreads throughout the country.   California's Department of Health said it had detected the cases in 'young' children, who had all been taken ill since October. It takes the U.S. total for suspected hepatitis cases to 27, with the condition now being spotted across seven states — mostly east of the Mississippi river. Wisconsin is the only state to report a suspected child death from hepatitis. If confirmed, it will be the first in the country and second in the world. State officials confirmed to the DailyMail.com that the child had developed the disease after being infected with the adenovirus. Cases of the peculiar illness have already been spotted in Alabama, North Carolina and Delaware. Health chiefs in Illinois and New York are currently probing reports of similar occurrences. The cause of the mysterious illness remains a 'mystery', chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden, Dr Anthony Fauci says. But experts have raised concerns that lockdowns weakening immunity in children s or...
    (CNN)Hello again, Norma Jean, as the 60th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe's death brings renewed opportunities to revisit her life and legacy, without really bringing anything substantially new to the party. "The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes" has one hook in recorded interviews with those who knew her, but offsets that with a clumsy device to illustrate those conversations.The recordings come courtesy of Anthony Summers , author of the 1985 book about Monroe, "Goddess." The interviews include a wide range of those who crossed her path, offering the old-Hollywood kick of hearing snippets of his chats with directors John Huston and Billy Wilder and Monroe's "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" co-star Jane Russell.The documentary undermines that, alas, with the unnecessary wrinkle of having actors "play" those people by lip-synching the audio, a pointless attempt to create the impression that the viewer is seeing the other side of those conversations. Given that there's plenty of video and film footage of Monroe to weave in, it's an indulgence that's far too cute for its own good, adding a sense of showbiz pizzazz that...
    U.S. health officials have sent out a nationwide alert warning doctors to be on the lookout for symptoms of unexplained hepatitis in kids, after clusters of mysterious cases in the US and UK.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expanding its probe after scores of young children came down with severe liver inflammation, but did not have the viruses hepatitis A, B, or C that usually cause it. In the alert on Thursday, the CDC said it is working with counterparts in Europe to understand the cause of the infections, and urged doctors across the country to report potential cases.  A common cold virus known as an adenovirus has been confirmed in several of the European cases, but not all.  In the UK, researchers have speculated that kids may have weakened immune systems due to rounds of COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns. However, the US cases of pediatric hepatitis are so far all in Alabama, a state that did not pursue the most stringent pandemic restrictions, deepening the mystery.  Clusters of mysterious pediatric hepatitis have prompted the CDC to issue a...
    (CNN)The far side of the moon, which we can never see from our vantage point on Earth, looks surprisingly different than the orb we're used to seeing in the night sky. The near side we are so familiar with appears darker in places -- the result of the vast ancient lava flows, called lunar mare -- while the far side is covered in pock marks and craters but no mare. Why the two sides of the moon are so different has long puzzled space scientists. However, a study published last week in the journal Science Advances has come up with a new explanation for this lunar mystery. Satellite pollution is threatening to alter our view of the night skyResearchers at Brown University studied the largest impact crater on the moon, known as the South Pole-Aitken basin (or SPA). Some 1,615 miles (2,600 kilometers) wide and five miles deep, it was formed by a massive space object that slammed into the moon -- perhaps a wayward dwarf planet -- when the solar system was being formed. The researchers found that the...
    A FLAMINGO that escaped from a Kansas zoo during a storm 17 years ago has been spotted on the coast of Texas.

    On the cusp of turning 96, it is rumored that the queen is using a wheelchair, and also determined not to be seen using one in public. Why might this be? Some say it is the “haunting” memory of the portrayal of her sister, Princess Margaret, who was photographed looking exhausted and ill in a wheelchair just six months before her death. Others say that it is a determination to protect the mystery of regal power. The queen knows how she is seen, and knows how she wants to be seen—and that precludes, right now at least, being seen in a wheelchair. But what is clear is that the queen is going to extraordinary lengths to ensure that she will never be publicly seen in a wheelchair, despite the fact that it is alleged she has the use of one to navigate the substantial distances of her home in Windsor Castle.
    A 54 year-old American doctor and her 49 year-old nurse sister died by assisted suicide after vanishing during a trip to Switzerland.   Lila Ammouri, 54, a palliative care doctor, and Susan Frazier, 49, a nurse, traveled to Basel, Switzerland on February 3, from the home in Phoenix and spoke to their brother Cal Ammouri, 60, shortly before.  Frazier's employer, Aetna Health in Phoenix, raised the alarm after she failed to return to work on February 15. The sister's deaths were confirmed by the US Consulate on February 18, although their exact date of death remains unclear.   Ammouri says his siblings appeared healthy and happy, and has not given any indication as to whether they were suffering any illness that could have driven them to   They are said to have arrived there on February 5, but never got their flight home.  A spokesman for the Basel-Landschaft Public Prosecutor's Office confirmed to  The Independent that the sisters had died by suicide 'within the legal framework'. It is unclear how or where the sisters' died. Assisted suicide is legal in Switzerland. Dignitas is the...
    PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Justin Thomas walked into the locker room at the TPC Sawgrass just like has done for the last seven years, with one interruption in his routine. His memory told him to peel off to the right. Then he remembered one of the perks from winning The Players Championship last year, and he went left into the small locker area reserved only for champions. “A nice adjustment that I’ll be able to make going forward,” he said. There are other perks this year, starting with the direct deposit into players’ accounts at the end of the week. The premier event of the strongest tour in golf now offers the richest purse at $20 million, with $3.6 million going to the winner. The top three places pay out seven figures. Someone can finish out of the top 10 and still make more than $500,000. What hasn’t changed is the fickle nature of The Players Championship. The TPC Sawgrass, whether it’s held in March or May, is known not to favor any one particular style of game,...
    A MUMMIFIED "mermaid" said to grant immortality to whoever tastes its flesh will be probed by scientists in order to reveal its true nature. The mysterious 12-inch creature was allegedly caught in the Pacific Ocean, off the Japanese island of Shikoku, between 1736 and 1741, and is now kept in a temple in the city of Asakuchi. 5The mummified 'mermaid' is set to be investigated by scientistsCredit: Kinoshita Hiroshi via Pen News 5It appears to have a 'human face' and tailCredit: Kinoshita Hiroshi via Pen News 5It was allegedly caught in the Pacific Ocean between 1736 and 1741Credit: Kinoshita Hiroshi via Pen News With a grimacing face, pointed teeth, two hands, and hair on its head and brow, it has an eerily human appearance – except for its fish-like lower half.

    A newly released infrared image showed a 'swarm' of three 'Tic-Tac shaped' UFOs chase four U.S. Navy destroyers off the coast of California.  The grainy image has been released by the Navy and shows what appears to be three small dots, representing unmanned aerial systems (UAS), hovering near the USS Paul Hamilton. It was one of the many occurrences Naval ships saw over the course of weeks, as many destroyers spotted these contraptions in July 2019.  These three UAS appeared near the ship around 8pm on July 17 shortly after the USS Paul Hamilton cut location broadcasting via the Automatic Identification System (AIS). Ships are not required to broadcast their location 24/7 and usually disable the transponder in situations that call for heightened security.  This decision was not reflected on the ship's deck log, but earlier in the month, logs indicate that other ships in the area also turned of AIS during UAS activity.  Additionally, the USS Paul Hamilton's log did indicate that the UAS appeared shortly after it had turned its navigation lights on.  Shortly before 8pm, one UAS...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said it's 'not a mystery' why legislation banning members of Congress from trading individual stock has not yet passed despite swelling public support, and estimated that a 'majority' of Congress trade stocks.   'An enormous amount - I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a majority of members of Congress - hold and trade individual stock,' the New York Democrat told Yahoo Finance. 'It’s not really a mystery to me why it’s difficult to pass' the legislation, she added. A push to ban lawmakers from trading stocks has gained momentum after a number of questionable trades prompted ethics concerns.  'Even last year there was at least 75 members of Congress that held individual stock in Johnson & Johnson, Moderna and Pfizer,' the congresswoman added.  At least 75 members of Congress did hold shares in the three pharmaceutical companies that developed a Covid-19 vaccine, even as they voted on legislation to allocate billions on developing and distributing the vaccine. 'That is where we should be drawing the line,' Ocasio-Cortez said.  'I am a member of Congress. Members of Congress...
    More than twice as many men are dying from Covid in Queensland than the state's female residents, leaving medical experts baffled. The Sunshine State has recorded 171 deaths from coronavirus since the start of the pandemic in early 2020 - with men accounting for 115 fatalities compared to the 56 deaths among women. While a similar phenomenon has been observed in places like Italy, China and some US states, researchers are no closer to understanding what makes men more at risk. More than double the number of men are dying from Covid-19 than women in Queensland, leaving medical experts baffled as they struggle to figure out why.
