  1. So, bird racing is a sport… right? And a really popular one at that, especially in China where the idea of birds competing in long-distance races makes people drop whatever they are doing and watch the Aves go head to head. That's alright, we aren't judging. It is a free world and people have the right to love and feel passionate about whatever it is that makes their blood rush. What we are concerned about is how far can that passion take a man. PIPA, an online portal that sells racing pigeons, hosted an auction that ran for two straight weeks, during which they put up Armando, the Belgian city dove, known for his accurate sense of direction and strong wings, on the auctioning booth and the world went mental. In the five years of his existence, Armando, under the care of his trainer Joël Verschoot, 63, has gotten a reputation of being called the 'Lewis Hamilton of pigeons' and finds tricky weather conditions to be a “piece of cake” according to Verschoot's brochure. According to his former master, Armando has been ranked number 1 in bird races for two back to back years (2017 and 2018) and was the best pigeon to have travelled across Europe for competition in 2018. © PIPA His glory was surely known to the world, more specifically in China which saw nearly half a dozen enthusiasts bidding for the champion. With hourly bids rising by €100,000 the final bid worth €1,252,000 (Rs 10 Crores, approx.) came in a couple of minutes before the closing to the auction at midnight last Sunday, according to The Guardian. “The two Chinese had told me in advance that they absolutely wanted Armando,” Verschoot said after the auction. “But I didn't see this coming. This is a crowning glory of all those years in the pigeon sport. The icing on the cake.” As reported by the Press Association, Nikolaas Gyselbrecht, the founder and chief executive of Pipa, said: “This pigeon has a race record that has never been matched by any other pigeon… In football terms you have Messi and Ronaldo — it's that level.” Armando, who is nearing his retirement, will be made to breed with a “high quality hen” that is already waiting in China after being purchased for a huge amount of money. Twitter was unable to get its mind to accept the fortune of Joël Verschoot, the bird-keeper, who is literally a 'crorepati' now.

  3. When was the last time you felt sad for a bird? After reading this heart wrenching tale about Nigel, and why was he called the loneliest bird in the world, you will feel heart broken. Nigel, a handsome gannet bird was found dead on an island off the coast of New Zealand. The reason is not poisoning or hunting, it's actually sheer heart break. © Twitter The officials at the Mana islands wanted to establish a gannet colony and in order to lure the birds, they put concrete, fake gannet decoys all around the place. Turned out, only Nigel took the bait and after he landed in 2013, he decided to make it his home. The sad part is that no other gannet followed and Nigel, led by his innocence, fell in love with a 'fake' gannet and wooed it for years. According to the officials, he built it a nest, groomed its feathers and what not. Eventually Nigel was found dead in his unrequited love. Actually, a few gannets did fly in for a while last month, but nothing happened between them and Nigel. Even though the new batch of gannets continue to live on the islands, Nigel, who was nicknamed as 'no mates', is not there. Internet has currently turned into a sobbing ground of empathy for Nigel. I never thought a story about an isolated New Zealand bird would break my heart but it has. No point making any more plans for Nigel. ð¢ https://t.co/dmXSkLPwFm — Reetu Kabra (@ReetuKabra) February 2, 2018 jesus christ who the **** is cutting onions in here pic.twitter.com/Cs8Ee0gtr5 — Zack Whittaker (@zackwhittaker) February 2, 2018 Some people took it personally and even related life lessons to Nigel's death.

We feel very sad for you Nigel. The next time you complain about being 'forever alone', please remember this plague is not just limited to humans.
  4. Starc is Australia´s leading wicket-taker in this series with 19 wickets MELBOURNE: Australia pace spearhead Mitchell Starc was on Sunday ruled out of the fourth Ashes Test with a heel injury and will be replaced by Jackson Bird. Starc, who is Australia´s leading wicket-taker in the series with 19, bruised his heel bowling in Australia´s series-clinching third Test win in Perth last week. There wasn´t enough time for him to recover from the injury to his landing foot, with team management officially ruling him out two days before Tuesday´s Melbourne Test. While Starc had been optimistic about his chances of playing, Australia´s selectors took a cautious approach with their star paceman ahead of a key series against South Africa early in the new year. Starc said he hoped to return for the series-ending Sydney Test on January 4. "It´s never nice to miss but it would be pretty selfish of me to go in to a game not at 100 percent," he told reporters. "It´s nice that we have won the series and we can play it a little bit safer now. "I think the discussions (with selectors) lasted about 30 seconds... and it gives me a good chance now to have a bit of time off it over the next few days and give me a really good chance for Sydney." Starc´s withdrawal continues his run of bad luck in the Melbourne Cricket Ground showpiece. He has played in just one Boxing Day Test since making his debut in 2011. Last year Starc scored 84 with the bat and took a match-sealing four-wicket haul in a final-day win against Pakistan there. Bird said he was ready for his first Test in a year. "I´ve been ready to go for 12 months basically," he told reporters. "I had a week in the Perth nets working on a few different things with bowling coach David Saker. "It´d be unbelievable to play an Ashes Test on Boxing Day." Meanwhile, wicketkeeper Tim Paine is expected to play after joining his teammates at training on Sunday after initially remaining at home in Hobart after his father-in-law suffered a stroke.
  5. Photo: courtesy Local 10 news screen grab A giant bird shattered the nose of an American Airlines flight bound for South Florida, however, the bird remained stuck on the plane after the plane landed safely. No injuries were reported in the incident. According to Local 10 News, Flight 1498 from Mexico City was approaching Miami International Airport when the bird hit the nose of the Airbus A319 at 11am. An employee of the airlines remarked that she had never seen anything like this incident before. ?It is true that we deal with bird strikes, that does happen, but never like this," she added. Later, an animal service was called to retrieve the dead bird from the plane following which the plane was taken for maintenance. According to a 2016 study, the Federal Aviation Administration reported there were more than 160,000 bird strikes reported in the U.S. from 1990-2015.
  6. WASHINGTON: Juli Briskman didn't think twice when she gave President Donald Trump the finger as his motorcade passed her while she was cycling on a road near his golf club. "He was passing by and my blood just started to boil," the Democrat mother of two, 50, told HuffPost. "I'm thinking, he's at the damn golf course again." But the obscene gesture, captured on October 28 by AFP White House photographer Brendan Smialowski, who was riding in Trump's convoy, quickly went viral. And it has now cost the single mom her job. The president had gone to his Trump National Golf Club on the banks of the Potomac River, about 40 kilometres (25 miles) northwest of the White House. Briskman lives nearby and was out for a Saturday bike ride when the convoy of black SUVs drove past. Smialowski ? a veteran of White House motorcades ? said he always keeps his camera ready to shoot. "You never know what you might see. You never know what might happen," he said. Gestures from bystanders, thumbs up or middle fingers, are common. In this case, he said, Briskman "seemed to know exactly who was inside those vehicles". After the first time the convoy passed her, she caught up again when it stopped at a red light. "What made this particular cyclist unique was her tenacity ? once the motorcade passed her, she managed to catch back up and share her feelings again," he said. The photo only showed Briskman from the back, unidentifiable, her left arm out and middle finger up. It didn't take her long to realize that she was the person in the photo soon all over the internet and television. She proudly posted it as her profile picture on her Facebook and Twitter pages. It isn't known whether Trump saw the gesture. But it didn't please Briskman's bosses at Akima LLC, a builder that does work for the US government and military. Three days later they told Briskman, a marketing officer, she had to go. "They said, 'We're separating from you,'" Briskman told HuffPost. "Basically, you cannot have 'lewd' or 'obscene' things in your social media. So they were calling flipping him off 'obscene.'" Briskman and Akima could not be contacted early Monday for comment. But the photograph remained at the top of her social media pages.
  7. Flocks are particularly vulnerable to avian flu during the drier winter months, following which outbreaks usually die down. Photo: Reuters BEIJING: China on Tuesday confirmed an outbreak of bird flu at broiler chicken farms in a central province, the Ministry of Agriculture said in a statement. Flocks are particularly vulnerable to avian flu during the drier winter months, following which outbreaks usually die down. The outbreak in Hexian, a city of about 500,000 people in the province of Anhui, was caused by the H5N6 strain of virus, and has been brought under control, the ministry said on its website. The local government culled 30,196 fowl after the outbreak, which infected 28,650 broiler chickens and killed 15,066 of the birds, it added. The last bird flu outbreak, also of the H5N6 strain of the virus, killed 9,752 birds on quail farms in the southwestern province of Guizhou, the ministry said in August. South Korea and Japan battled major outbreaks during the winter. The H7N9 strain of the virus has caused at least 281 deaths since October in China, with two cases of human infection last month, authorities said last week. Live poultry markets were shut down in many provinces following the human infections. China?s last major bird flu outbreak in 2013 killed 36 people and cost the farm sector more than $6 billion in losses.
  8. HAGUE: Dutch poultry farmers, already left reeling by a contaminated egg scandal, were in a new flap Friday over an outbreak of bird flu with thousands of hens to be destroyed. "An outbreak of a variant of H5 bird flu has been detected in a poultry farm in Zeeland province," Economic Affairs Minister Henk Kamp said. All 42,000 egg-laying hens in the southern Netherlands farm will have to be culled "to stop the disease spreading" in accordance with European regulations, he added in a statement. "A mild pathogenic variant of H5 can mutate into a very contagious and deadly strain for chickens, therefore in all such cases the animals have to be put down." The ministry also ordered an immediate ban on the transportation of poultry, eggs, meat and manure within one kilometre (half a mile) zone around the farm located in the village of Sint Philipsland, although there are no other poultry farms in the area. It is a new blow for the Dutch poultry industry which since August has been at the centre of a tainted egg scandal that spread across several European countries and even as far as Hong Kong. Millions of eggs were dumped, and some 3.2 million chickens were killed after the banned insecticide fipronil was found to have been used in poultry farms to combat lice, but had made its way into eggs. Some 267 Dutch poultry farms are still closed, awaiting the all-clear from health officials to resume production.
  9. Scientists have identified three mutations that, if they occurred at the same time in nature, could turn a strain of bird flu now circulating in China into a potential pandemic virus that could spread among people. The flu strain, known as H7N9, now mostly infects birds but it has infected at least 779 people in outbreaks in and around China, mainly related to poultry markets. The World Health Organization said earlier this year that all bird flu viruses need constant monitoring, warning that their constantly changing nature makes them "a persistent and significant threat to public health". At the moment, the H7N9 virus does not have the capability to spread sustainably from person to person. But scientists are worried it could at any time mutate into a form that does. To assess this risk, researchers led by James Paulson of the Scripps Research Institute in California looked at mutations that could potentially take place in the H7N9 virus's genome. They focused on the H7 hemagglutanin, a protein on the flu virus surface that allows it to latch onto host cells. The team's findings, published in the journal PLoS Pathogens on Thursday, showed that in laboratory tests, mutations in three amino acids made the virus more able to bind to human cells - suggesting these changes are key to making the virus more dangerous to people. Scientists not directly involved in this study said its findings were important, but should not cause immediate alarm. "This study will help us to monitor the risk posed by bird flu in a more informed way, and increasing our knowledge of which changes in bird flu viruses could be potentially dangerous will be very useful in surveillance," said Fiona Culley, an expert in respiratory immunology at Imperial College London. She noted that while "some of the individual mutations have been seen naturally, ... these combinations of mutations have not", and added: "The chances of all three occurring together is relatively low." Wendy Barclay, a virologist and flu specialist also at Imperial, said the study's findings were important in showing why H7N9 bird flu should be kept under intense surveillance. "These studies keep H7N9 virus high on the list of viruses we should be concerned about," she said. "The more people infected, the higher the chance that the lethal combination of mutations could occur."
  10. No matter how many books are written or movies are made on supernatural phenomenon, the truth will always be stranger than fiction. Our world is full of mysteries, unexplained, unexplored, and hidden. One such unexplained mystery traces back to a small village in Assam. Located on a ridge, Jatinga is a village situated among mountains and blessed with scenic beauty. Also known as the valley of death, the village has been witnessing a strange occurrence. © spiritual cleansing As fog descends on the village on a dark moonless night in the monsoon, hundreds of birds fly at high speed towards the ridge, and crash into trees, buildings and the ridge itself. The next morning reveals a ghastly sight of mauled bird carcasses lying strewn all over the valley. The strange phenomenon happens only on dark foggy nights in the monsoon, between 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., in the months from September to November. The villagers have long held a belief that evil spirits hovering the skies are responsible for driving the birds to suicide. Strangely, it has been observed that the birds are attracted only towards a 1.5 km long strip of the ridge, and not towards the whole ridge. © Youtube Interestingly, it’s not only the local birds who take part in the mass suicide, many migratory species have also been found dead in the mornings after. So far, a total of 44 species have been recorded to have fallen prey to this phenomenon. Bird species like kingfishers, black drongo, black bittern, tiger bittern, green pigeon, hill patridge, pond heron have all been affected. The birds are believed to get disoriented and disturbed when flying near the ridge, causing them to plunge to death. They are said to be mysteriously drawn to the light sources put up by villagers, and become too dazed to fly. What is most mind-boggling is that most of these bird species are diurnal and there’s no explanation why they would be flying at night. © hututoo This mass suicide has perplexed scientists and locals alike but no one has been able to explain the mystery. Numerous studies have been conducted and various theories have been suggested to explain the mass suicide but nothing concrete has come up so far. Ornithologists who studied this odd behavior of the birds observed that long distance migratory birds didn’t fall prey to mass suicide. During the monsoon, as many water bodies of Assam get flooded, many bird species are forced to migrate to a better habitat. Flying over Jatinga, which experiences high winds and fog during monsoon, is a challenge for the birds who often get disoriented due to the weather conditions. The theory is convincing but it still doesn’t explain why the birds get attracted to only the 1.5m-long strip of the ridge. It also doesn’t explain why the birds arrive only at night at a certain time, when most of these species are diurnal, i.e. they are active during the day and sleep at night. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Even famous ornithologist Salim Ali couldn’t explain this strange phenomenon and wrote: ‘The most puzzling thing to me about this phenomenon is that so many species of diurnal resident birds should be on the move when, by definition, they should be fast asleep. The problem deserves a deeper scientific study from various angles." There’s yet another theory that hints at magnetism under play. It suggests that there is change in the magnetic properties of underground water due to the monsoons, and that leads to the birds getting disoriented. It still doesn’t convincingly explain why the birds would crash violently against the ridge. Despite the studies and researches, the eerie phenomenon hasn’t been explained yet. Whether it’s the difficult climate conditions or a magnetic force or supernatural spirits, birds continue to plummet to their deaths on cold foggy moonless nights in the tiny village of Jatinga.
