Emily Bowen admitted the charges

A teenage schoolgirl who left a classmate scarred after an acid attack has been jailed.

Emily Bowen poured drain cleaner into a viola case owned by school pupil Molly Young after she had found out the girl had started dating a former boyfriend.

The instrument was destroyed and Ms Young was severely injured when she pulled her viola case from a shelf and the acidic liquid poured over her legs.

The victim was left ‘screaming in pain’ as the acidic drain cleaner burned her clothes and onto her skin during the incident at a music room at Knox Academy, in Haddington, East Lothian.

Bowen, now 18, admitted to recklessly and culpably pouring sulphuric acid into a viola case in the knowledge it would be removed from a shelf by the victim causing sulphuric acid to spill onto her legs, all to her injury and permanent disfigurement, at Knox Academy, Haddington, East Lothian, on September 29 last year.

She appeared back at Edinburgh Sheriff Court for sentencing where a sheriff described the acid attack as ‘utterly wicked’.

Sheriff Michael O’Grady QC said: ‘In the period leading up to these events you actually researched this topic and you of all people should have been aware of the potentially horrendous consequences for any young woman maimed by this mechanism.

‘You have left a young woman to suffer a terrifying ordeal and she will be both physically and mentally scarred for the rest of her life.’

Bowen planned the revenge attack and bought a bottle of drain cleaner online last September and hid it in her school locker.

She then sneaked into the school’s music room where all the pupil’s instruments are stored and poured the drain cleaner – which contained 91% sulphuric acid – into Ms Young’s viola case.

But the plan to destroy her love rival’s instrument went wrong when the acid poured from the case onto the girl’s legs leaving her with horrific injuries and subsequently suffering from post traumatic stress disorder.

Sheriff O’Grady said he had no option but to jail the 18-year-old acid attacker for 21 months.

He also banned Bowen from contacting her victim after sentencing her to a five year non-harassment order.

The girls were acquaintances and both were members of the East Lothian school’s orchestra before the incident.

Bowen played the clarinet while victim Molly played the viola.

The ‘talented musicians’ fell out when the victim began going out with an ex-partner of the teenage attacker.

Prosecutor Aidan Higgins said both pupils were in sixth year and in the school orchestra at the time of the offence.

West Freugh Ufo Incident!

West_Freugh_Airfield_-_geograph.org.uk_-_434249

In April 1957, while monitoring a test bombing exercise, radar units of the Ministry of Supply Bombing Trials Unit headquartered at RAF West Freugh observed the UK’s most reported UFO incident.

Awaiting a test over Luce Bay from an aircraft RAE Farnborough, the civilian radar operators of the Ministry of Supply were told to turn their sets off due to a delay.

One unit at Balscalloch near Corsewall Point did not receive the signal. They observed a large and solid unidentified echo, an almost stationary object, located above the Irish Sea. It remained stationary for 10 minutes at an initial height of 50,000 feet (15,000 m), 20 to 25 miles (40 km) north of Stranraer; its height then increased to 70,000 feet (21,000 m). The Balscalloch Unit contacted West Freugh air traffic control and informed the controller that there were now several moving targets. These were moving at speeds of thousands of miles per hour, and the echoes were like nothing the radar operator had ever seen before.

West Freugh observed the targets, as did the now switched-on Ardwell Unit (14 miles to their south), confirming the observation. After ten minutes, the position begun to move north-east at speeds gradually increasing up to 70 mph (110 km/h), and at a height of 54,000 feet (16,000 m). A third radar station then confirmed the target, and noted that after the radar echo had travelled about 20 miles (32 km), it did an “impossible” sharp turn and proceeded in a south-easterly direction whilst increasing its speed. The third station then tracked four objects at 14,000 feet (4,300 m) altitude and 4000 yards line astern from each other, which was confirmed by Balscalloch. The radar operators noted the echoes were much larger than those of normal planes, size being nearer to that of a ship.

RAF intelligence ordered radar stations throughout the UK to be on 24-hour alert. A few days later, civilian operators reported the incident to various newspapers including the Sunday Dispatch, which published the incident on 7 April 1957. An Air Ministry spokesman declined to make a detailed statement until a full report had been studied by experts, while Wing Commander Walter Whitworth, RAF West Freugh Commanding Officer, made an Air Ministry approved statement.

“I have been ordered by the Air Ministry to say nothing about the object. I am not allowed to reveal its position, course and speed. From the moment of picking it up, it was well within our area. It was an object of some substance – quite definitely not a freak. No mistake could have been made by the [Ministry of Supply] civilians operating the sets. They are fully qualified and experienced officers.”

Questions were asked in Parliament and the Air Ministry were eventually obliged to admit they were unable to explain the incident. As the incident had leaked to the press, internal RAF records were well preserved, although details of official records are protected by the Official Secrets Act However, in an RAF meeting minutes document of 1970, Whitworth additionally commented that:

“After remaining stationary for a short time, the UFO began to rise vertically with no forward movement, rising rapidly to approximately 60,000 feet (18,000 m) in much less than a minute. The UFO then began to move in an easterly direction, slowly at first but later accelerating very fast and traveling towards Newton Stewart, losing height on the way. Suddenly the UFO turned to the southeast, picking up speed to 240 mph (390 km/h) as it moved towards the Isle of Man. It was at this stage that the radar signals became contradictory. Balscalloch tracked a single ‘object’ at high altitude while Ardwell picked up what appeared to be four separate objects moving line astern behind each other at a height of 14,000 feet (4,300 m). As the echoes disappeared; all three radars fleetingly traced the four smaller UFOs ‘trailing’ behind the larger object. The UFO had been tracked for 36 minutes.”

The station was also used, during the Summer of 1957, to house airmen deployed on Operation Hardrock, which was the name given to establishing a rocket tracking station on the island of Hirta in the St Kilda archipelago. Airmen were driven daily to Cairnryan Military Port and those, destined for St.Kilda, were shipped out on Mk VIII LST’s (landing ship tank).

A disabled couple were sent shocking messages when they enquired about a room to rent in a shared house.

Landlord told couple on benefits to 'stop sucking the life out of this country'

 

Maria Brindle, 25, and her partner Liam Bellis, 24, had asked the advertiser if he accepted tenants on benefits as they both have ill health.
Maria has been unable to work due to severe back pain, while her boyfriend has Asperger’s syndrome, depression and anxiety.But after asking why they claimed benefits, Kevin Parkes told them to ‘get a job and stop sucking the life out of the country’.

But Kevin claimed Liam, 24, has depression because ‘he has not motivation’ from not having a job and Maria’s bad back was because she ‘doesn’t move all day’.

Landlord told couple on benefits to 'stop sucking the life out of this country'

Maria, from Portsmouth, said: ‘He was asking about what we do for a living and I explained that we receive benefits.

‘When I told him, we received benefits as we were too ill to work he asked us if my partner was going to die in the house, which is a weird question to ask anyway. It was really strange.
‘He doesn’t even know us. It’s discrimination really. Just because we received benefits it doesn’t mean he can speak to us like that.’

‘I have been to the hospital and doctors so many times and they still can’t figure out what is wrong. I take painkillers every day. Some days I can’t even get out of bed.

Landlord told couple on benefits to 'stop sucking the life out of this country'

‘My partner’s Asperger’s syndrome, depression and anxiety means that he can’t go outside and meet new people. He’s been told by the DWP that he can’t work.

‘I haven’t come across any more suitable rooms but I’m going to keep looking. No one will give us a chance.

But Kevin, 32, defended his messages and claimed he refused to work 12 hours a day ‘only for them to ‘expect [him] to pay for [their] roof alongside his’.

The dad-of-two said he refused to claim benefits when he broke his leg because ‘the country is struggling enough as it is’.

He had been advertising the property in Portsmouth for a friend and had been vetting some of the applicants to stop anyone moving in who ‘would not pay the rent’.

‘Many in this country don’t have the same work ethic as my mum or me or others who work hard their whole lives,’ Kevin said.

The full rejection message

‘I’m going to be absolutely blunt and up front right now. You both need to pull yourselves together and stop blaming ill health for your reason not to work.

‘Your boyfriend has depression because he has no motivation as he has nothing to get up for every morning and you have a bad back because you don’t move all day.

‘Do yourselves a favour and stop sucking the life out of this country. I’m not saying this to be hateful or nasty but it’s the truth.

‘Why should I be out of the house 12 hours a day, five days a week and pay for myself to live on this planet when you expect me to pay for your roof alongside mine.

‘If you both pulled your fingers out you might feel better about yourselves and each other.

‘I’ve had my say to help you, not to amuse myself.’

 

‘A lot of people can’t get off their arses and get to work. People are out there with genuine physical and mental health problems and that’s what the extra money is for.

‘But bone idle and lazy people shouldn’t have it.

‘My friend claims benefits and he has never worked a day in his life. He has seven children and he is still breeding. He says he will keep getting more money and so he will keep on breeding.

Ley line Time slips or a Ufo abduction?

 

Ley lines /l lnz/ are apparent alignments of land forms, places of ancient religious significance or culture, often including man-made structures. They are ancient, straight ‘paths’ or routes in the landscape which are believed to have spiritual significance.

The phrase was coined in 1921 by the amateur archaeologist Alfred Watkins, referring to supposed alignments of numerous places of geographical and historical interest, such as ancient monuments and megaliths, natural ridge-tops and water-fords. In his books Early British Trackways and The Old Straight Track, he sought to identify ancient trackways in the British landscape. Watkins later developed theories that these alignments were created for ease of overland trekking by line-of-sight navigation during neolithic times, and had persisted in the landscape over millennia.  In his book The View Over Atlantis (1969), the writer John Michell revived the term “ley lines”, associating it with spiritual and mystical theories about alignments of land forms, drawing on the Chinese concept of feng shui. He believed that a mystical network of ley lines existed across Britain,  a notion actively promoted by “The Ley Hunter” magazine, edited at the time by his biographer, Paul Screeton.

Since the publication of Michell’s book, the spiritualised version of the concept has been adopted by other authors and applied to landscapes in many places around the world.

The ley line hypothesis is a type of pseudoscience. A random distribution of a sufficient number of points on a plane will inevitably create alignments of random points purely by chance.

Time slips or a Ufo abduction?
Time slips maybe associated with the ley. Two military personnel from Salisbury Plain whilst parked close to the ley decided to take time out to have a cigarette before returning to their military camp. Suddenly, they noted a strange orange coloured light which appeared from nowhere. As trained observers, they were curious about the light that seemingly dashed from one side of the car to the other. The light then disappeared and the night retuned to normal. They decided to return to base and instantly realised something was hopelessly wrong as they were met by the Military Police. They had been absent without leave for 2 days! Yet they had just smoked a single cigarette! Something had happened, was it a time slip or an abduction? Whatever the truth is, the event took the two soldiers from an ordinary night into an extraordinary unexplained experience.

The Hidden Nazi Background Of Walter Hallstein, Founding President Of The Brussels EU Commission

maxresdefaultOne of the curious things about the Brussels EU is that in promoting itself to the world it continually tries to rewrite, or even erase, some of the most important facts about its history. While there are many examples of this, nowhere is it perhaps more apparent than in the image it tries to present of Walter Hallstein, the man who was the first president of the European Commission, the unelected executive body of Europe. Hallstein held this post between 1958 and 1967 and is described on the Brussels EU website as a “visionary leader” and a “diplomatic force” who propelled European integration. However, no mention whatsoever is given by the Brussels EU to the fact that before and during World War Two Hallstein was a member of official Nazi organizations.

For example, the Association of National Socialist German lawyers was founded in 1933, immediately after the Nazis had seized power. In 1936 it was converted into the notorious Nazi Association of Law Protectors. Membership of this second organization was restricted to those individuals showing uncompromising support for, and participation in, the implementation of Nazi ideology. In a memorandum sent by Hallstein to the representative of the Nazi government at the university of Rostock in Germany in 1935, Hallstein stated he was a member of both these organizations.

The Rollright stones Crop circles

This crop circle event was reported on the 15th of July 2015 in a field of ripening wheat next to the Rollright Stones circle, north west of Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire.

The circles are in a field directly next to the stones. The first was a small ringed circle, which lay very close indeed to the stone circle, and the second larger formation sits relatively central in the field, but at the end of the field nearest the stone circle. The largest circle contained an elaborate design, centred on a pentagram (five-pointed star) with two crescent moon shapes, one large and one small – the smaller one sitting at the centre of the design. The Pentagram is nicely realised, and has a celtic knot effect, as the arms seem to be partially above the large crescent shape and partially below it. The whole of the design then sits inside a large flattened circle. The larger formation measures approximately 150 -180ft in diameter and the small ringed circle was approximately 50-60ft in diameter.
