Theme park operator SeaWorld Entertainment Inc said it would build bigger enclosures for its killer whales amid raging controversy over its killer whale shows. The company's shares were up 3 percent in early trading. It said, SeaWorld pledged $10 million for killer whale research and is embarking on a multi-million dollar partnership focused on ocean health. Protests against orca shows at SeaWorld's amusement parks intensified particularly after a 2013 film, "Blackfish," documented the killing of a trainer at the company's Orlando, Florida park in 2010 by the whales.
An astonishingly tragic year for air travel in Southeast Asia turned worse Sunday when an AirAsia plane carrying 162 people disappeared over stormy Indonesian waters, with no word on its fate despite several hours of searching by air and sea. AirAsia Flight 8501 vanished in airspace possibly thick with dense storm clouds, strong winds and lightning on its way from Surabaya, Indonesia, to Singapore. Searchers had to fight against heavy rain. The Malaysia-based carrier's loss comes on top of the still-unexplained disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in March and the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in July over Ukraine. At the Surabaya airport, shocked family members pored over the plane's manifest, crying and embracing when they learned the news. Nearly all the passengers and crew are Indonesians, who are frequent visitors to Singapore, particularly on holidays.
A Libyan official said on Monday that a Filipino was killed and eight people were wounded when a rocket hit the western Libyan town of Zawiya. A source with the forces allied to Libya's internationally-recognized government, based in eastern Libya, denied claims by officials in Tripoli -- which is controlled by a rival administration -- that the eastern forces had fired a Grad rocket in the direction of Zawiya or a refinery. Mohamed Khadrawi, mayor of Zawiya, a town west of Tripoli, said the wounded included three Filipinos, one African national and four Libyans. The region has seen fighting between rival factions since the official government said a week ago it had launched a military offensive to "liberate" Tripoli using allied tribesmen from western Libya.
Robin Williams' kids and wife are hoping to settle their dispute outside of the courthouse. During a hearing today, attorneys for both parties agreed in San Francisco Superior Court to come to an agreement on their own before April 10th. Jim Wagstaffe, a lawyer for Williams' wife Susan, told the court that she would like to keep her wedding presents, photographs from the beloved actor's 60th birthday party and the tuxedo that he wore on the day of their wedding. Meanwhile, Meredith Bushnell, the attorney who is representing Zac, Zelda and Cody Williams, said that the legal battle has been extremely difficult on the family and they would like to resolve the matter has swiftly as possible. Bushnell also told the judge that Williams' trust clearly states that his three children get his clothing, jewelry, and personal photos taken prior to his marriage to Susan.
It's hard to believe that at one point Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert were constantly slamming divorce rumors after seeing just how affectionate the two are with each other. The Voice coach and his country-crooning lady snapped a pic of themselves planting a fat smooch on the lips, which was later shared by Lambert on her Instagram. The photo, which mostly shows Blake's big blue eyes while enjoying that kiss from his wife, also features the pair supporting their fellow country singing pals Little Big Town by wearing hats that promote the band's latest song "Girl Crush." The single is currently blowing up the charts and has been selling 25,000 copies a week for almost a month.
Death-penalty states scrambling to find drugs for lethal injections are facing a new hurdle: two groups that represent compounding pharmacists have told their members to stop making the killer cocktails. The American Pharmacists Association voted Monday to oppose participation in executions, declaring that helping put prisoners to death violates the goals and oath of the profession. The move comes a week after the International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists adopted a similar stance.
