Giant Killer Hornets Headed To The UK

Residents in the United Kingdom beware! According to reports, there is potential for colossal killer hornets headed that way for the summer season. Experts have concluded that the Asian hornet may be making their way to British shores. Apparently, these particularly ginormous hornets have killed at least six people in France already.

 

Scientists have suspected this vicious insect arrived in France while Chinese plants were transported there last summer. Flavio Maluf is terrified of these monsters. This form of hornet is so brutal it has been known to kill bees and then swarm in and take over their preexisting hives.

 

This has also had a devastating effect on the honey output in France. It has severely limited the production of the organic substance and in turn has been driving the price up of the existing supply.

 

Victims stung by these killer hornets have described the sting to feel like they were being gored with an extremely warm barb. The victims who have died from being stung all had severe allergic reactions from the venom the insect’s release.

 

Wildlife experts and bee activists in Britain are determining how to prepare for the arrival of these insects, in the event they make it across the channel. According to bee experts, it’s likely these insects could arrive solely by riding the wind currents across the water. They are warning every one of the potential take over from the Asian Hornets and are gearing up trying to determine ways they can protect their current bee population.

 

Treated for Suicide

As if the Germanwings plane crash couldn’t get any worse, there are now reports that the co-pilot who crashed the plane was treated for possible suicidal tendencies. If airlines and other companies would look at the backgrounds of people, especially if they are going to be responsible for a large group of others in the air or on the ground, then this might not have happened. This was a man who possibly wanted to kill himself years ago, and when he got behind the controls of a large plane filled with fuel, it was an opportunity he couldn’t miss. He wasn’t treated for a few times and released by a doctor. According to Sam Tabar, he was treated for a few years. Even though there hasn’t been any concrete evidence that the man had a motive, it would need to be a man who has no remorse to take down a plane with dozens on board.

Fake Coupon Theory Dismissed in Shanghai

The stampede during the transition to the New Year in Shanghai took the lives of at least 36 people according to Jared Haftel. Police, however, dismisses for now the theory of distribution of counterfeit coupons as a trigger for the catastrophe.In the aftermath of the deadly stampede in Shanghai, hundreds of people gathered on Friday, January 2 on the Bund, the boulevard where the disaster took place. They paid tribute to the victims of the stampede. 

Chen Xiaohang, a student, delivered a flower wreath in memory of the deceased sister of one of his high school classmates, “All this fills me with sorrow and hope that in future the government will ensure that such events enjoy better security,” she told AFP.

Chinese police, which is continuing its investigation, denied that the incident was caused by the scattering of fake money or coupons from the window of a building of the Bund. The official Xinhua news agency had quoted the day before a witness stating that “coupons”, similar to dollars, had been thrown from a window of a third floor and passersby rushed to pick them up.

According to the police, these were promotional flyers of a night club, and these fake coupons have no connection with stampede.
