Utah Man Accused of Setting Kitten on Fire, Killing Several Others

“This suggests something really disturbing about Mr. Briggs is referring to 26-year-old Spencer Pedersen. They say this is one of the worst cases of animal abuse they have seen. “My wife saw him just on the other side of this fence,” said Matt Nelson, pointing to his back yard. Neighbor Rosalyn Briggs remembers running to the flames. “I want this man removed from our neighborhood, what do I have to do?” Dorsey said. “But the cats weren’t mauled,” Nelson said.

A kitten was set on fire and left to burn to death in Provo, Utah, this week, and now a man is facing several charges including felony animal cruelty. “We worry that he is at risk of abusing more animals or persons, so we hope he gets some intervention.”
During their investigation, police also found heroin in Pedersen’s possession. “There was a guy walking up the street,” Briggs said. He was arrested and charged on Wednesday with three counts of animal cruelty involving dead kittens. She has three children, so she’s just glad she saw it first. Pedersen,” said Sgt. That was Talavaley’s reaction when he found out his next door neighbor was arrested for allegedly setting a kitten on fire outside his house Tuesday morning. “I think his goal was to hide the evidence, kill the cats and then throw them over to hopefully get my dogs to eat them.”
Another dead kitten was uncovered in the corner of Shawna Dorsey’s back yard. Nelson has discovered at least eight dead and abused kittens in his dog pen in the last two weeks. Police say it appears Pedersen was adopting the kittens from some sort of online source. Pedersen even had a picture of one of the dead kittens on his phone.

20 Billion Barrels of Oil Discovered in Mammoth Texas; Biggest Oil Discovery Ever in USA

“We are picking up a few rigs every now and then but we won’t see it really take off until we (get) that price in the $60 to $65 range,” Burns told the station. Morris Burns, a former president of the Permian Basin Petroleum Association, told KWES the low price of oil — currently around $46 a barrel — means the oil will sit underground for the foreseeable future. “Changes in technology and industry practices can have significant effects on what resources are technically recoverable, and that’s why we continue to perform resource assessments throughout the United States and the world.”
Oil has been produced in the Wolfcamp area since the 1980s by traditional vertical wells — but now companies are using horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing to tap the continuous oil reserve. Last March there were 300,000 fracking wells, churning out 4.3 million barrels per day. “This oil has been known there for a long time — our task is to estimate what we think the volume of recoverable oil is,” assessment team member Chris Schenk told CNN-affiliate KWES Wednesday. “When we talk about that many millions of barrels of oil in the ground, that doesn’t mean we can recover it all. oil output. That makes it three times larger than the assessment of the oil in the mammoth Bakken formation in North Dakota. 31.968599

Geologists say a new survey shows an oilfield in west Texas dwarfs others found so far in the United States, according to the US Geological Survey. The term “continuous oil” refers to unconventional formations like shale, in which the oil exists throughout the formation and not in discrete pools. Geologists say a new survey shows an oilfield in west Texas dwarfs others found so far in the United States, according to the US Geological Survey. More than 3,000 horizontal wells are currently operating, according to the USGS. “Even in areas that have produced billions of barrels of oil, there is still the potential to find billions more,” Walter Guidroz, coordinator for the USGS Energy Resources Program said in a statement.

20 Billion Barrels of Oil Discovered in Mammoth Texas; Biggest Oil Discovery Ever in USA

Geologists say a new survey shows an oilfield in west Texas dwarfs others found so far in the United States, according to the US Geological Survey. Last spring, CNN reported that “fracking” now accounted for more than half of all U.S. We recover in the neighborhood of 50 to 60 percent,” Burns said. The estimate would make the oilfield, which encompasses the cities of Lubbock and Midland — 118 miles apart — the largest “continuous oil” discovery in the United States, according to the USGS. Back in 2000, there were just 23,000 fracking wells pumping about 102,000 barrels of oil a day. The Midland Basin of the Wolfcamp Shale area in the Permian Basin is now estimated to have 20 billion barrels of oil and 1.6 billion barrels of natural gas, according to a new assessment by the USGS. The USGS estimates how much oil is considered to be undiscovered but technically recoverable. The fracking production, led by Permian Basin, Bakken formation and Eagle Ford, also in Texas, caused oil prices to tumble — making the $100 barrel ancient history — to as low as $25 a barrel early this year.

British Teenager Wins Battle to Be Cryogenically Frozen in U.S. After Dying of Cancer

“The human cooling program from dry ice was selected and the time needed to cool the patient to liquid nitrogen temperature was 24 hours. “Over recent months, JS has used the internet to investigate cryonics: the freezing of a dead body in the hope that resuscitation and a cure may be possible in the distant future,” he said. The judge said this fluctuation in his views was understandable, adding, “No other parent has ever been put in his position.”
But he emphasized he was not ruling on the science of cryonics, but rather on the dispute between her parents over who was responsible for the arrangements after her death. The girl — who can’t be identified and is referred to only as “JS” — suffered from a rare form of cancer and expressed a hope to be brought back to life and cured in the future. ‘Bright, intelligent’ girl
At the start of proceedings, the teenager’s father, who also has cancer, wrote: “Even if the treatment is successful and [JS] is brought back to life in let’s say 200 years, she may not find any relative and she might not remember things and she may be left in a desperate situation given that she is only 14 years old and will be in the United States of America.”
However, he subsequently changed his position, saying he “respected the decisions” his daughter was making. Barry Fuller, professor in Surgical Science and Low Temperature Medicine at University College London, said that cryopreservation “has many useful applications in day to day medicine, such as cryopreserving blood cells, sperm and embryos.”
But, he said, “cryopreservation has not yet been successfully applied to large structures, such as human kidneys for transplantation, because we have not yet adequately been able to produce suitable equipment to optimize all the steps. The patient was then placed in a cryostat for longterm cryonic storage.”
The Cryonics Institute said the girl was its 143rd patient. “The scientific theory underlying cryonics is speculative and controversial, and there is considerable debate about its ethical implications. But he cautioned that hospital officials had had “real misgivings” about the way the process was handled on the day she died. Justice Peter Jackson said the girl had expressed her desire to be cryogenically frozen. It involves cooling legally-dead people to liquid nitrogen temperature where physical decay essentially stops, in the hope that future scientific procedures will someday revive them and restore them to youth and good health. She died on October 17 but details of the case at London’s High Court were not allowed to be made public until now. I think being cryo-preserved gives me a chance to be cured and woken up, even in hundreds of years’ time. “It is an example of the new questions that science poses to the law, perhaps most of all to family law,” he added. I want to have this chance. They chose the most basic arrangement, he said, which “simply involves the freezing of the body in perpetuity.”
The Cryonics Institute, which is based in Michigan, said the body of a 14-year-old girl from London arrived at its facility, packed in dry ice, on October 25, about eight days after her death. “I want to live and live longer and I think that in the future they might find a cure for my cancer and wake me up.

The case was said by the judge to be the only one of its kind to have come before the courts in England and Wales, and probably anywhere else. The Cryonics Institute i shown in a file photo. “A person held in such a state is said to be a ‘cryopreserved patient’, because we do not regard the cryopreserved person as being inevitably ‘dead’.”
Can a whole body survive freezing process? “The patient was then placed in the computer controlled cooling chamber to cool to liquid nitrogen temperature,” a statement posted on its website said. This is my wish.”
According to the judgment, the girl’s parents are divorced and their relationship is “very bad.” Her mother was supportive of her wish, but her father — who had not seen his daughter face-to-face since 2008 — initially was not. Its website explains the process as “a technique intended to hopefully save lives and greatly extend lifespan. (Credit: Tribune Media Wire)

A British teenager who died of cancer has been cryogenically frozen in the United States after winning a court case before her death. The cost of the procedure in the United States — which the judge said was about £37,000 ($46,000) — is being met by her maternal grandparents, he said, although the family is not well off. In his judgment, obtained by CNN, Mr. “This is why we have to say that at the moment we have no objective evidence that a whole human body can survive cryopreservation with cells which will function after rearming.” After Dying of Cancer

The Cryonics Institute i shown in a file photo. I don’t want to be buried underground. “Cryonics is cryopreservation taken to its extreme.”
The judge ruled in favor of her mother and said the girl had died peacefully, knowing her wishes had been met. She wrote: “I have been asked to explain why I want this unusual thing done. The girl’s mother was said to have been preoccupied with the arrangements after her death, rather than being fully available to her child, he said, and the voluntary organization which helped get her body ready for preservation was disorganized. “On the other hand, cryopreservation, the preservation of cells and tissues by freezing, is now a well-known process in certain branches of medicine, for example the preservation of sperm and embryos as part of fertility treatment. However, some skepticism remains about the science of cryogenics. I’m only 14 years old and I don’t want to die, but I know I am going to. The judge also said there was no doubt the girl — described as “a bright, intelligent young person who is able to articulate strongly held views on her current situation” — had the capacity to start legal action.

Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions Selected by Trump for Attorney General, Official Says

It is an unacceptable thing,” he said in March. “We have a toxic ideology, hopefully very small within Islam; certainly most people, most Muslims don’t agree with this violent, jihadist approach. What’s happening to Europe as a result of refugee flows is just incredible. I believe a wise statesman could have foreseen some of the difficulties we’re facing today. He has also critiqued Obama’s handling of Syria. “It seems to me that the problem is that, with our support, ISIS is being damaged, but they’re not utterly destroyed.”
Like Trump, Sessions has questioned whether European countries are contributing enough to NATO. Let’s have a pause and begin to analyze where the threats are coming from,” Sessions told CNN in June, amid questions about whether Trump’s position was shifting. And disaster has been the situation,” Sessions said at a September hearing. It hasn’t developed like President Obama projected. Three senior European officials told me the European Union is threatened by this, the very existence of it,” he said in a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing in January 2016. And we need to figure out a better way to identify that.”
In the past, Sessions has signaled support for a no-fly zone in Syria. Trump’s transition team put out a read out of his meeting with Sessions earlier this week — unusual for a meeting with a member of Trump’s transition team, highlighting Sessions’ record as an attorney. He had denounced the 1965 Voting Rights Act and had labeled the American Civil Liberties Union and the NAACP “un-American” and said the organizations “forced civil rights down the throats of people.”
A black Justice Department staffer said Sessions had called him “boy” and claimed he had thought the Ku Klux Klan “were OK until I found out they smoked pot.”
Sessions was mentioned as a potential running mate for Trump and advised him on his selection of Indiana Gov. And we should have been more cautious and careful in our declarations of how we expect Syria to develop over the years. Sessions was one of President Barack Obama’s fiercest opponents, voting against his nominees to the Supreme Court from his post on the Judiciary Committee and opposing Obama’s other major domestic initiatives. “The situation in Syria is a colossal disaster.
