|'Hungry bear' crisis grips far east Russian region|
|Mon, 16 Oct 2017 09:37:55 -0400|
Large numbers of hungry, aggressive bears are approaching humans and have killed two people in Russia's far east due to depleting food sources, a forestry worker told AFP Monday. Authorities on Sakhalin island last week said 83 bears had to be shot dead because they were hostile, a figure that has nearly tripled from last year. "This has never happened before," a local forestry worker told AFP, asking not to be named because he is not authorised to speak to the press.
|Prisoners in Texas donate more than $50,000 for Harvey relief|
|Sun, 15 Oct 2017 14:22:54 -0400|
After Hurricane Harvey devastated Texas and Louisiana in late August, prison inmates in Texas reached out with a helping hand. More than 6,600 incarcerated individuals in Texas dipped into their limited commissary funds to donate to the American Red Cross, pooling together more than $53,000 for Harvey relief efforts, WPXI in Pittsburgh reported today. SEE ALSO: This is how veterans are helping disaster victims The surprising number comes from a Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokesperson, and the funds were donated between Aug. 31 and Sept. 30. The 6,600 inmates gave an average of $8 per person. That might not sound like much, but prisoners don't have access to their normal bank accounts or cash, which means the funds were all taken out of their commissary funds. Commissary funds are prison-specific money accounts that can be used to purchase small items from prison commissaries (things like cough drops, Oreos, and postage stamps). Prisoners' commissary accounts are usually funded by friends, family members, or through wages made by working prison jobs. Most of the damage that Hurricane Harvey caused was in the area around Houston, Texas, with 89 reported deaths and countless destroyed homes, cars, and more. The devastation sparked an outpouring of support around the world — apparently, even from prisons. WATCH: NFL athlete helps Harvey relief by donating his entire first paycheck

|Tue, 17 Oct 2017 03:43:39 -0400|
Smokers who flout a smoking ban on 20 of Thailand's most famous tourist beaches will face a $3,000 fine or up to a year in prison, Thai authorities have said. The ban, which comes into force in November, follows a clean-up of nearly 140,000 cigarette butts from a 2.5 kilometre (1.5 mile) stretch of the famed Patong beach in Phuket island province. Its introduction coincides with Thailand's peak tourist season and will be enforced in visitor hotspots including Krabi, Koh Samui, Pattaya, Phuket and Phang Nga.
