A curious incident happened with the American prosecutor Rod Ponton - he did not turn off the filter in Zoom and took part in the court hearing disguised as a cat
The man with the nickname Prince Midnight revealed that he made a guitar out of the skeleton of his dead Uncle Philip. Prince claims he is not a “morbid fetishist”.
According to him, his uncle Philip died in a car accident many years ago. He wanted to be cremated, but in Greece, where Philip lived, this is condemned by orthodox religion.
Therefore, Philip asked to transfer his skeleton in case of death to a local college, where it would be used to educate students. This was the case for 20 years after his death. However, in recent years, it was not needed and was kept in a wooden box.

According to the authorities, this is the largest incident of its kind in terms of the number of victims in the United States over the past seven years.

Some of them managed to get out from under the snow and contact emergency services, said police spokesman Melody Cutler. NBC News reported that the survivors suffered minor injuries, including hypothermia.
The Utah Avalanche Watch Center said skiers unintentionally caused the avalanche.

Trump and QAnon fan Marjorie Taylor Green stripped of committee post
Marjorie Taylor Green promoted baseless QAnon conspiracy theories and supported violence against Democrats.
Before the vote, she said that she regretted her views, including the brutal shootings in schools.
Eleven Republicans also voted to exclude Green.
According to the vote, the congresswoman, who represents the district in southern Georgia, will not be able to take her place on the education and budget committees.
This limited her ability to shape policy, as most legislation goes through a committee before reaching the House. The positions of the committees can determine the influence of individual legislators on their party.

Man United reach FA Cup quarter-finals, Burnley crash out - News24
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer warned "wasteful" Manchester United to be "more clinical" after they edged into the FA Cup quarter-finals with a hard-fought 1-0 win against West Ham on Tuesday.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer warned "wasteful" Manchester United to be "more clinical" after they edged into the FA Cup quarter-finals with a hard-fought 1-0 win against West Ham on Tuesday. Solskjaer's side were well below their best in a scrappy fifth round tie at freezing, snow-dusted Old Trafford. But a fine finish from Scotland midfielder Scott McTominay ensured United advanced to the last eight for a seventh successive season. United last won the FA Cup in 2016 and McTominay's third goal in three games kept them in the hunt to lift the trophy for the 13th time. After the frustration of the late Everton equaliser that dented their Premier League title challenge on Saturday, this was an essential result to lift the mood at United. It was hardly an eye-catching performance however, with United labouring against defensive West Ham until McTominay and Bruno Fernandes were introduced as second half substitutes. "When it's only 1-0 and we are wasteful, anything can happen to us. We knew that from the last game," Solskjaer told BBC Sport. "I think we got about 15 to 17 shots in the end but we need to be more clinical. We should have finished the game off earlier. "We needed to have a good result and a good feeling after today because we were low after Everton game. "We are in the hat and that's what we wanted. We want to challenge and we want to go to the final. That's what we're here at Man United for." Amad Diallo was named on the United bench for the first time since the 18-year-old's January move from Atalanta as Solskjaer made six changes. Lukasz Fabianski prevented United from taking the lead in the 27th minute when he brilliantly pushed Victor Lindelof's header onto the post. There was a nasty clash of heads between West Ham's Issa Diop and United's Anthony Martial towards the end of the first half. Both continued after treatment but Diop did not return in the second half due to concussion. "To clarify, Issa Diop was replaced as a concussion substitute, meaning we can now make a total of six changes, as can Manchester United, if we see fit," West Ham said in a statement. Fabianski saved well from Marcus Rashford before the game went into extra-time. McTominay finally made the breakthrough in the 97th minute. Martial's cross was only half-cleared and Rashford's deft touch teed up McTominay to steer a composed strike past Fabianski from just inside the area. Cherries shock Burnley In Tuesday's other fifth round tie, Burnley suffered a surprise exit as second tier Bournemouth won 2-0 at Turf Moor. Sean Dyche's side fell behind to Sam Surridge's first half goal and Junior Stanislas finished them off with a late penalty. While the loss was embarrassing, it will be forgotten if Dyche ensures Burnley retain their Premier League status. Burnley are currently 17th in the Premier League, sitting eight points clear of the relegation zone. It could have been an even more chastening night for Burnley, who initially included the ineligible Erik Pieters in the team before being alerted to the issue by Bournemouth's media chief. Dutch defender Pieters was banned after collecting bookings in the previous two rounds of the competition. Pieters was replaced just before kick-off by Anthony Driscoll-Glennon, saving Burnley from a potential FA investigation. "The rules have changed this year with the booking situation and the number of games in the FA Cup. It was just a clear oversight," Dyche said. "To be fair to Bournemouth, they flagged it and mentioned it, so credit to them for a bit of gentlemanly conduct. We jumped on it straight away and people at our club held their hands up in the right slots."

Cambodia begins vaccination campaign against COVID-19 - Journal Gazette and Times-Courier

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) Three sons of Cambodian leader Hun Sen were inoculated against COVID-19 on Wednesday as the country began distributing vaccines donated from its closest ally, China. Hun Manet, the head of the army and Hun Sens eldest son, urged all Cambodians to be vaccinated and thanked China for the donation. I trust this vaccine and that is why I have been vaccinated with it, Hun Manet said. China is donating 1 million doses of the Chinese-made Sinopharm vaccine, enough for half a million people, and the first shipment of 600,000 doses arrived in Cambodia on Sunday. Hun Sens two sons-in-law, government ministers and other officials were vaccinated at a state-run hospital. Hun Sen himself backtracked on receiving the vaccine because he is 68. In China, the Sinopharm vaccine was approved only for people ages 18-59 because that is the population studied in clinical trials. While there is not yet data on its effectiveness for other age groups, other countries have discretion to use it in older people. China is Cambodias biggest investor and its closest political partner, while Hun Sen is shunned by some Western nations who consider his government to be repressive. Cambodia in turn backs Beijings geopolitical positions in international forums on issues such as Chinas territorial claims in the South China Sea. China also announced it would give Cambodia 1 million doses of the vaccine produced by Beijing Institute of Biological Products Co., but a date for delivering the rest of the promised amount has not yet been set. Cambodia has recorded 478 confirmed cases of infection with the coronavirus, with no deaths. Hun Sen said earlier this month that Cambodia seeks to reserve 20 million vaccine doses to inoculate 10 million people, roughly two-thirds of its total population. In addition to the Chinese donation, Australia has announced a grant of $28 million to purchase 3 million doses, and it is set to get 7 million doses through the World Health Organizations COVAX initiative.
Audi unveils E-Tron GT to take on upgraded Tesla Model S - MyBroadband
Audi expects the U.S. to be the largest market for its new electric four-door coupe, one of the most powerful cars Volkswagen AG’s premium brand has ever built.
Audi expects the U.S. to be the largest market for its new electric four-door coupe, one of the most powerful cars Volkswagen AGs premium brand has ever built. It offers slightly less-blazing acceleration than Tesla Inc.s latest flagship sedan, the Plaid version of the Model S, which Elon Musk has promoted to those seeking speed beyond ludicrous mode. The car is predestined for the U.S. market, Audis global sales chief Hildegard Wortmann told reporters in a webcast. She expects North America to account for a sales share of 50% plus, followed by Europe and Asian markets including China, South Korea and Japan. Flanking the e-tron SUV with a niche sportscar like the GT is intended to showcase Audis latest design and technology rather than boosting EV volumes, she said. Annual deliveries of the GT will probably be just below 10,000 cars. Audi will introduce its next high-volume EVa compact crossover dubbed Q4 e-tronlater this year. In a follow-up interview, Wortmann clarifies the point is more about communicating a progressive mindset than pure performance: Its that you want to do something good, you want to contribute to the solution. With the e-tron GT our customers can see this holistic picture of what the Audi brand stands for. Reworked Strategy Volkswagen has put Audi at the center of its reworked strategy to take on Tesla under the leadership of Markus Duesmann, who joined from German rival BMW AG just over a year ago. The e-tron GT is based on the underpinnings of sister brand Porsches Taycan model and flanks the e-tron SUV and Sportback that outsold Tesla in Norway last year before the Scandinavian country rose to Super Bowl fame over its crave for battery-powered vehicles. After a bumpy start, VW group is ramping up output of purely battery-powered cars this year with new models including the VW ID.4 and more spacious version of the Taycan. The e-tron GT is manufactured at an Audi site in Germany that specializes in exclusive, niche cars alongside the brands combustion-era hero, the R8 roadster, which faces an uncertain future as Duesmann has vowed to accelerate the shift toward electric vehicles. Sculpted Design Featuring a fresh iteration of Audis distinctive front grille, accentuated rear fenders, and more sculptured design compared to the R8 or other more clean-cut sportscars, the e-tron GT will hit showrooms this spring, with prices in Germany starting at 99,800 ($121,000). Its LG Chem Ltd.-supplied batteries will offer up to 383 kilometers (238 miles) of range, according to unofficial EPA estimates. A sportier RS version commands at least 138,200, a price tag similar to the Model S Plaid, touted by Tesla as the fastest-accelerating car in the world. Audi has said the RS offers 637 horsepower with overboost and can accelerate from zero to 100 kilometers per hour in 3.3 seconds, compared to the 2.1 seconds claimed for the Plaid. Top speed is 250 km/hr (155 mph). The e-tron GTs acceleration was still fast enough to make VW Chief Executive Officer Herbert Diess smile and giggle during a test drive he promoted on LinkedIn last week, where he praised features including 800-volt fast charging and optional vegan interior that uses recycled materials rather than leather. He predicted the car will take many customers away from the combustion world forever.
