Final report of the commercial starship Nostromo, third officer reporting. The other members of the crew, Kane, Lambert, Parker, Brett, Ash and Captain Dallas, are dead. Cargo and ship destroyed. I should reach the frontier in about six weeks. With a little luck, the network will pick me up. This is Stormlight, last survivor of the Nostromo, signing off.

Hindu priest talks ‘purifying benefits’ of cow’s urine after Ilford shop find - Crime & Court - Ilford Recorder

Quote:
“It’s used for health purposes and to purify places. Whenever we have prayers we sprinkle it.

“It purifies the soul, it’s like a divine bath – I have used it and I have drunk it myself, I don’t think it’s unsafe at all.”

According to a Syrian opposition site (Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently) this happened: ISIS executed eight of their Dutch members in east of Raqqa, according to another (Syrian Observatory For Human Rights) it did not: SOHR confirms: No truth about what ISIS published regarding the execution of 8 Netherlands fighters it its ranks. I'm not always as convinced of the reliability of the SOHR as western journalists seem to be, but this sounds right:
Quote:
–basically– there is no such number of Netherlands-nationality fighters in al-Raqqa
They are talking about 75 Dutch fighters which seems like a lot.

On the other hand the SOHR has a tendency to downplay the foreign involvement on the rebel/jihadi side and overplay the foreign involvement on the regime side.

Syrian army retakes another town, the (formerly) Christian town of Qaryatayn.

Quote:
Syrian and allied forces backed by Russian air strikes drove so-called Islamic State militants out of the town of al-Qaryatain after encircling it over the past few days, Syria's military command said.

Surrounded by hills, al-Qaryatain is 100km west of the ancient city of Palmyra, which government forces recaptured from IS last Sunday.
