A video released by brutal ISIS-affiliated Abu Sayyaf shows Jurgen Kantner, 70, a sailing enthusiast, his hands tied behind his back, being beheaded at a jungle clearing, after a deadline for a $600,000 ransom passed. He could be heard on video saying “Now he’ll kill me”, before a man began cutting his head off with a large knife. Abu Sayyaf abducted Mr. Kantner, last November when he was sailing with his wife Sabine Merz on a yacht in Malaysian waters. Ms. Merz was shot and killed when she tried to resist the militants. ~ Chiang Rai Times

Terry Devitt - University of Wisconsin: From rocks in Colorado, evidence of a ‘chaotic solar system’

For most of the Late Cretaceous, exceptionally high sea levels flooded the low-lying portions of several continents around the world. In North America, a warm, shallow sea called the Western Interior Seaway extended from the Arctic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico, subdividing the continent into eastern and western landmasses, known as Appalachia and Laramidia, respectively. Plumbing a 90 million-year-old layer cake of sedimentary rock in Colorado, a team of scientists from the University of Wisconsin–Madison and Northwestern University has found evidence confirming a critical theory of how the planets in our solar system behave in their orbits around the sun. The finding, published February 23, 2017 in the journal Nature, is important because it provides the first hard proof for what scientists call the 'chaotic solar system', a theory proposed in 1989 to account for small variations in the present conditions of the solar system. The variations, playing out over many millions of years, produce big changes in our planet’s climate — changes that can be reflected in the rocks that record Earth’s history. ~ Ron Blakey Northern Arizona University Geology Dept.

The discovery, published Wednesday in the journal Nature, marks the first time that so many terrestrial planets – planets that are primarily made of rock, like Earth – have turned up in one solar system. Three of the planets fall within a temperature range that should allow water to exist on their surfaces – a placement that is sometimes referred to as “the Goldilocks zone” because it is neither too hot nor too cold. Given the right sort of atmosphere, water could also be present on three of the others. ~ NASA/JPL-CALTECH

for 1st time in more than a century


The first wild bison to roam Banff National Park in more than a century have been airlifted into a remote valley in a "historic homecoming" aimed at re-establishing a thriving herd, Parks Canada said Monday. While many remember what Parks Canada calls a "display herd" of bison housed in a paddock near the Banff townsite until 1997, this new herd represents a return to wild animals, eventually free to wander their surroundings. The 16 bison — primarily pregnant two year olds — were loaded onto shipping containers on trucks in Elk Island National Park, about 35 kilometres east of Edmonton, and transported to the park in the past week.

updated Quebec City - CBC: 6 dead, 19 wounded in mosque attack

One of the two men arrested was near the scene of the shooting, while the other was arrested near l'île d'Orléans, kilometres from downtown Quebec City, following a police chase of the SUV he was driving. This suspect called police and waited for them to arrive to arrest him. Police called special technicians to where the chase ended, because they believed explosives may have been inside the SUV. Radio-Canada, CBC's French-language service, reported a gun was found inside the vehicle. A witness from inside the mosque attack, who asked to remain anonymous, told CBC's French-language service Radio-Canada Sunday night that the two shooters were masked. "It seemed to me that they had a Quebecois accent. They started to fire, and as they shot they yelled, 'Allahu akbar!' The bullets hit people that were praying. People who were praying lost their lives. A bullet passed right over my head," said the witness. Along with the dead, there are multiple wounded, according to CBC's French-language service Radio-Canada. Quebec City police have set up a perimeter around the Islamic cultural centre of Quebec in the Sainte-Foy neighbourhood. Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard said in a tweet that the province is mobilizing to assure the safety of Quebec City residents. He added that "Quebec categorically reject this barbaric violence" and offered solidarity with the families of victims and wounded. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the shooting a "cowardly attack" and said Canadians were grieving for the victims. ~ Radio-Canada

The Associated Press promoted a picture taken hours before Trump's speech to claim the turnout was poor. Above you see the actual crowd size as Trump spoke at the podium, stretching back to the Washington Monument media centre. A 'gigapixel' photo by CNN also shows what this picture shows. So did the live shots... This article from Australia compares the actual crowd to the fake news pictures.

And this is the year to visit: In honour of the 150th anniversary of its confederation, when the original colonies came together as one country, Canada is rolling out the welcome mat. All of its more than 200 national parks and historic sites are offering free admission through the year, from the turquoise lakes and mountain peaks of Banff in Alberta to the rolling dunes and red sandstone cliffs of Prince Edward Island along the Atlantic Coast to the newest reserve, the glacial-rounded Mealy Mountains in Labrador."
