Kentucky lawyer in $600 million fraud scheme flees U.S.: report

Kentucky lawyer in $600 million fraud scheme flees U.S.: reportA Kentucky lawyer who pleaded guilty to participating in a $600 million disability fraud scheme has fled to a country that does not have an extradition treaty with the United States, local media reported. Eric Christopher Conn, 56, used a fake passport to flee to a country he did not identify, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader, which said it exchanged emails with a person it identified as Conn. The paper said on Sunday that person answered correctly questions only Conn would know. Scott White, Conn's attorney, could not be reached by Reuters for comment, but he told the newspaper that he also received emails from that same address, from a person he believed to be Conn.

These mysterious light pillars surprised Malaysian photographers out on a trek

These mysterious light pillars surprised Malaysian photographers out on a trekThis brilliant display of lights looks like it came from the North Pole, but it was actually shot in Malaysia. Last Thursday, a group of photographers were out on a trek to capture shots of the Milky Way, when they were surprised by these light pillars.  SEE ALSO: Algae emitting eerie blue glow makes this beach look otherworldy The multicoloured light pillars are a natural phenomenon that occurs when light reflects off the mirror-like surfaces of ice crystals. They are usually found in the polar regions, but have appeared at lower latitudes before. A post shared by AERIAL-NIGHT Sky (@mentorgraphy) on Jun 21, 2017 at 11:17am PDT Photographer Andrew Tan, said the group of six was out at the northernmost tip of Sabah, Borneo. He told Mashable he only realised the light pillars were in the picture when he checked his camera later. He used a 30-second long exposure to capture the phenomenon, and it picked up the colours of the light pillars. "It was magnificent," Tan told Malaysian paper The Star. "It is definitely a moment to treasure in our lives." The phenomenon was also spotted from the east, as the sun rose the next day: Christiano Mogolid, a native of Sabah, had seen the lights from the east during the sunrise, according to the Malaysian Digest.  Light pillars occur when the source of the light — either the sun, or the moon — are near the horizon. The lights tend to take on the colour of the light source. Sabah, a state in eastern Malaysia, has reportedly witnessed light pillars in both 2006 and 2015.

SeaWorld under federal investigation over impact of the 'Blackfish' documentary about orcas in captivity

SeaWorld under federal investigation over impact of the 'Blackfish' documentary about orcas in captivitySeaWorld is being investigated by two US federal agencies investigating disclosures and public statements by executives, including comments about the Blackfish documentary, which led to a public backlash against keeping orcas in enclosures. Shares in the Florida based company fell 33 per cent on a single day in August 2014 when the theme park operator blamed the scrutiny of its treatment of animals for reported earnings that missed analysts’ estimates. Blackfish, which was released in 2013, led activists to claim SeaWorld was keeping the creatures in small tanks instead of pens at sea.
