The Worst Gossip Girl Looks Of All Time Betches

everyBlair Serena Jenny Vanessa Oh, wait. You know how I just said I didn’t know who annoyed me more, Serena or Jenny? My b, forget that because Vanessa hands down takes the cake with the title of most annoying on Gossip Girl. It’s a shame because she’s stunning, yet is the definition of pesky. Between her self-righteous attitude and tacky discount store wardrobe, she is the absolute worst. For example, combo of a horrible statement necklace and baggy jeans stuffed into Converse with cartoons on them. It gives me all the cringe sweats. It looks like something you get on the JCPenney clearance rack in the curated “teen” section. It’s just doing too much, just like martyr Vanessa always does. …

World’s Oldest Evidence Of Locomotion Uncovered In Gabon

The ability to move has allowed life to spread to every corner of the planet and it is such a necessity for survival that organisms have come up with many different ways to go about. Researchers thought that locomotion was a fairly recent development, but new evidence suggests that it might have been around 2.1 billion years ago. The claim, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, is based on traces found in rocks from Gabon. Using a brand-new X-ray technique that is not destructive, the international team of researchers spotted tubular structures up to 6 millimeters (0.2 inches) in diameter and 17 centimeters (6.7 inches) in length. These fossils indicate the existence of a group of single cells …

Facebook wades into world’s longest civil war, but does it know what it’s doing?

(CNN)For more than 60 years, a protracted civil war has simmered across Myanmar, largely hidden from the outside world. CNN reached out to Facebook, which said it had evidence that the four groups were responsible for attacks against civilians and were engaged in violence in Myanmar, and indicated that other non-state armed groups were part of ongoing investigations. Removing hate Less than a decade ago, just 0.3% of Myanmar’s population was connected to the internet as the nation emerged from years of isolated military rule. There are now 18 million Facebook users and the site is so popular that for many it has become synonymous with the internet and a primary source of news and information. Facebook has recently been …

Record levels of gold mining are destroying one of the most biodiverse places on Earth, study shows

(CNN)The Southern Peruvian Amazon is considered one of the most important cradles of biodiversity left on Earth. Deforestation in 2018 eclipsed the previous record high from 2017, when an estimated 22,635 acres of forest were felled by gold miners, according to MAAP. This means that over two years, gold mining decimated the equivalent of more than 34,000 American football fields of the Peruvian Amazon rainforest. That’s an area nearly the size of the city of Cleveland. “If we look at the biodiversity value of the region’s air and water quality, fauna and flora, and just forest coverage in terms of carbon emissions or sequestration, I think we’re looking at a real gem with all the services that a place like …

Confusion and anger after security guard holding suspect was shot by police, video shows

(CNN)As Jemel Roberson laid motionless in the parking lot of a suburban Chicago bar, patrons stood feet away wailing and yelling at a group of law enforcement officers. The 26-year-old security guard was on duty at the bar in Robbins, Illinois, when a gunman started shooting. Witnesses said Roberson stopped the shooter and pinned him to the ground. But shortly afterward, the Midlothian officer shot and killed Roberson. While witnesses said the guard was wearing clothes that clearly identified him as security, Illinois State Police, the agency leading the investigation, said Roberson was wearing “plain black clothing with no markings readily identifying him as a security guard.” In a statement, Cara Smith, chief policy officer at the Cook County Sheriff’s …

Europe kills Siemens’ plan to create the Airbus of trains

London (CNN Business)The European Union has blocked a merger by Siemens and Alstom that would have created the train equivalent of aviation powerhouse Airbus. Siemens (SIEGY) and Alstom (ALSMY) had argued that joining forces was necessary to achieve the scale needed to compete with companies from China. A similar structure helps Airbus (EADSF) compete with US rival Boeing (BA). Siemens CEO Joe Kaeser said the decision showed that Europe “urgently needs structural reform in the way it shapes its industrial future.” “Protecting customer interests locally must not mean that Europe cannot be on a level playing field with leading nations like China, the United States and others,” he said. Alstom said in a statement that it regretted the decision. The …

Over 100 Whales Still In Russian “Whale Jail” Months After First Spotted As Investigation Drags On

Somewhere in the realm of 100 belugas and killer whales are being held captive in what’s been dubbed a “whale jail” by media in Russia and abroad. Prosecutors are investigating the cramped quarters and potentially life-threatening conditions, especially as the winter chill freezes ice into the enclosures. A team must now work to remove the ice so the animals can breathe and surface for air.  Activists fear the whales will be sold to water parks and aquariums in China, which would be a blatant disregard of international laws. The concern arises from reports of such precedent by the companies between 2013 and 2016, according to Russian Newspaper Novaya Gazeta. The companies under investigation are Bely Kit, Afalina Oceanarium DV, and Sochi Dolphinarium. …

Stacey Abrams, first black woman to give Democratic rebuttal, offers tough rebuke of Trump, GOP leaders

Washington (CNN)Democratic Party rising star Stacey Abrams sharply criticized the Trump administration and Republican leadership on Tuesday night in her response to the President’s State of the Union address. Abrams continued, “We cannot accept efforts to undermine our right to vote,” and said, “This is the next battle for our democracy, one where all eligible citizens can have their say about the vision we want for our country. We must reject the cynicism that says allowing every eligible vote to be cast and counted is a power grab.” “The foundation of our moral leadership around the globe is free and fair elections where voters pick their leaders, not where politicians pick their voters,” she said.
