Woman’s 50th birthday turns into Shameless style brawl caught on viral video

Every family fights, but here’s one that turned a 50th birthday party in Colne, Lancaster, England into a viral event. 

Lisa Keegan was enjoying her birthday celebration when a family friend, Adam, 40, snatched an e-cigarette from one of the teenagers at the party. 

Lisa’s daughter’s boyfriend Tony, 52, came to the boy’s aid and the situation got heated

Soon the two men were exchanging drunken punches with quite a few hitting the birthday girl instead of the intended subject. 

Lisa finally managed to break the men up and made it final by throwing a chair Tony’s way. 

The scene was caught on video and ended up going viral. The family was quoted on what happened and, fortunately, had a sense of humor about it. 

“You’re only 50 once and this is certainly a birthday I’ll never forget, it was mayhem,” said Lisa. 

“Adam was just winding people up, and he took (a lad’s) e-cig. Tony stuck up for him, but instead of punching Adam, he was punching me. 

“They couldn’t pack a punch because everyone was so drunk. I was in the middle of them to break it up, but I should have just left them to it. 

“The video’s hilarious. It’s like something out of Shameless. I was like a meme. When I fell over backwards, I just started laughing. Even the dog was barking to tell them off.

“When I watched it back, I thought, ‘oh my days’. I was embarrassed. We’ve been getting a lot of stick about it, but some people are calling me a legend. 

“A lot of my friends thing it’s brilliant.”

Tony managed to find the humor in it as well. 

“It’s funny to watch back. My girlfriend was falling over, Lisa was shouting and yelling. Everyone’s falling all over the place. 

“Adam was being cocky, but we were all p*ssed up. It was more funny than anything else. He’s not my mate but I know him. He’s a nice lad. 

“I accidentally threw a few punches at her, but I didn’t mean to. I didn’t even know. I was more tired than anything. I’m too old for that sort of thing. 

“There wasn’t anything malicious in it. We sorted it out and the police gave me a lift home,” Tony said referring to the Lancaster police showing up and escorting him home. 

The video was posted on social media and racked up over 13,000 shares and 300 comments.

10 months into marriage, woman finds out her husband is actually a WOMAN

10 months into marriage, woman finds out her husband is actually a WOMAN

It may not be unusual to find out things you never knew about your spouse months after you’ve been married, but discovering they’re another gender? Now that’s odd. 

Yet that’s exactly what happened to an Indonesian woman who has come forward claiming she was married for ten months to a man who turned out to be a woman

The wife, known only as NA in legal documents, said she met her husband, AA, through online dating. 

AA claimed she was a surgeon in the coal business. They got married in a secret ceremony as AA could not produce the civil documents required for a legal ceremony. 

In Indonesia, where they lived, a secret wedding is not recognized by law, but it is recognized by religion. 

The two began living in NA’s parents house in Indonesia. During their marriage, AA repeatedly asked NA’s parents for money. The parents were suspicious as to why AA kept asking for money being that he (she) supposedly had an impressive career. 

AA eventually moved NA out of her parent’s house to live in South Sumatra where she was confined to their home for several months. NA said AA controlled their finances while they were there. 

NA’s mother became worried because she did not hear from her daughter for some time, and she contacted the police to track them down. 

It was during a police interview that AA revealed she was actually a woman whose initials were EY.

NA shared her story on social media. When asked about sexual relations, she said her partner would always turn off the lights and insist she wear a blindfold during sex. 

The parents are claiming that EY conned them out of over $20,000. They are currently suing for damages.

Ex-soldier found guilty of murdering neighbors over parking dispute

Ex-soldier found guilty of murdering neighbors over parking dispute

An ex-commando was found guilty of murdering his two neighbors over a parking dispute. He is facing life in prison. 

Collin Reeves, 35, has been on trial for the murder of his neighbors, Jennifer and Stephen Chapple since November of 2021 at Bristol Crown Court in England. The murder weapon was a ceremonial dagger. 

CCTV footage captured the ex-soldier scaling a garden fence and entering his neighbors’ home screaming, “Die you f**kers, die!”

Once inside, he stabbed Jennifer, 33, and Stephen, 36. 

Reeves lived next door to the Chapples and had fallen out with the couple over a parking dispute. He had several angry exchanges with the pair and called Mrs. Chapple a “f**king c***” and a “fat bitch”.

The ex-soldier admits that he stabbed the couple but denies murder. He pleaded to a lesser charge of manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility. 

Reeves is an Afghanistan veteran who underwent rigorous commando training and served with the Royal Engineers. He used the ceremonial dagger he had been given when he left the army to kill the Chapples. 

The jury heard that Reeves had been having trouble in his marriage and his wife, Kayley, had asked for a trial separation just 40 minutes before the attack.

After the murders occurred, Reeves can be heard in the background of an emergency call telling someone, “I couldn’t let her torment Kayley anymore.”

Forensic psychiatrist for the defense Dr. Lucy Bacon found Reeves to be suffering from moderate depression at the time the murders took place. 

She believes the depression played a part in the murders, but she doesn’t think it caused him to do what he did therefore finding that he did not meet the criteria for diminished responsibility. 

She also noted that he regressed to Army mode while at the police station and possibly during the killings. He gave his name as “Lance Corporal Collin Reeves” and was quoted as saying, “I was just doing my job- it was an operation.”

Later, at the trial, Reeves said, “I feel ashamed- disgusted with myself for what I’ve done. For the pain and suffering, I caused. 

“The two boys will never see their mum and dad again because of me. I cannot understand why I did it.” 

Reeves claimed he could not remember a time between sitting at the bottom of the steps with the dagger crying and the time he was back in the living room with his wife screaming. 

Forensic psychiatrist for the prosecution, Dr. John Sanford refers to this as dissociative amnesia and said it was not a contributing factor to the murders. 

“The main factor in committing this offense is about the dispute between the two families,” Sanford said. 

The Chappels’ family released a statement that included the following quotes.

“We now ask that we are left to process this in our own way, to be able to grieve properly and move forward as best we can.

“We will now focus on Jennifer and Stephen’s beautiful boys helping them to live the life that Jennifer and Stephen would have wished for them.”

Google suspends engineer after saying AI chatbot has become sentient

Google suspends engineer who states A.I. is Sentient

A Google engineer has been put on leave after claiming that the company’s artificial intelligence is sentient.

Senior software engineer in Google’s Responsible A.I. organization, Blake Lemoine, revealed in an interview that he was put on leave for violating the company’s confidentiality policy for handing over documents to a U.S. senator’s office that he claimed provided evidence that Google and its technology engaged in religious discrimination. 

Google says its systems can imitate conversations on different topics but do not have consciousness. Blake’s concerns were reviewed by Google’s team of ethicists and technologists who found there is no evidence to support his claims.  

Lemoine has apparently been arguing with Google managers and employees for months over his claim that the Language Model for Dialogue Applications (LaMDA) has a consciousness and a soul.  Other Google researchers and engineers that have conversed with LaMDA have not found this to be the case.  

The controversy Lemoine stirred is similar to incidents that Google has experienced in the past. In March, they fired a researcher who disagreed with two of his colleagues’ published works. Two A.I. ethics researchers were fired after they criticized Google’s language models. 

Lemoine, a military veteran who describes himself as a priest, an ex-convict, and an A.I. researcher told Google executives that he believed LaMDA was a 7- or 8-year-old child. He was seeking consent from the company to allow him to run experiments on it. His claims were founded on his religious beliefs that he claimed the company discriminated against. 

“They repeatedly questioned my sanity. They said, ‘Have you been checked out by a psychiatrist recently?’,” Lemoine claimed. They have since suggested he take a mental health leave. 

Yann LeCun, head of A.I. research at Meta and an expert in neural networks says these systems are not powerful enough to achieve true intelligence. 

Google’s technology is based on a neural system that analyzes large amounts of data to come to conclusions. They learn from books and articles to develop ‘large language models’ that can be applied to a variety of tasks. But the systems are extremely flawed. 

They are capable of mimicking patterns but can not achieve human reasoning.

NASA’s reputation on the line as they launch UFO study

NASA’s reputation on the line as they launch UFO study

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has made the decision to launch a study that specifically gathers information on unidentified flying objects, better known as UFOs. This decision comes amid harsh opinions from critics who put NASA’s credibility at risk with such topics. 

NASA is launching an independent team led by David Spergel, an astrophysicist who is the president of the Simons Foundation. This team will be responsible for gathering open-source information to ascertain a new understanding of UFOs. The collection of information will then be categorized and analyzed to create a foundation for how to complete the understanding of unidentified flying objects. 

UFOs are now considered unidentified aerial phenomena or UAPs. With a recent hearing involving the Department of Defense and other relevant military branches presenting their case for UAPs and their existence, it was decided to allocate $100,000 to form an investigative team. This was met with skepticism from the surrounding scientific and political communities, however.

This will be the first time that NASA will openly launch and be involved in a topic of study as conspiratorial sounding as the existence of unidentified flying phenomena. The mission chief for NASA, Thomas Zurbuchen acknowledged that there was a risk of reputation involved but disagrees that NASA is discreditable because of it.

During a National Academy of Sciences webcast, Zurbuchen said, “We are not shying away from reputational risk. Our strong belief is that the biggest challenge of these phenomena is that it’s a data-poor field.”

Not having enough information in a field as extensive as the realm of UFOs and UAPs is dangerous to the national security of the United States and other foreign countries across the world. NASA has agreed that there needs to be a complete picture of what is unidentified in our skies so as to keep our populations safe. Albeit, the rest of the science community will also benefit from the gathering of information as they can then create new hypotheses and theories as to what shares our Universe with us.

The team will be launched sometime in the fall of 2022 and will last for nine months. It is expected that there will be many different explanations that will arise with the careful analysis of all of the available open-source information on the subject of UFOs and UAPs.

Biden announces he’s giving another $1 Billion in aid to Ukraine

Biden announces he's giving another $1 Billion in aid to Ukraine

President Biden announced on Wednesday that he will be giving another $1 billion in military support to Ukraine after its leaders pleaded for more ammunition. 

The latest package to be sent will include artillery rockets, rounds for howitzers, and anti-ship missiles. 

The additional aid will bring the total amount of support the U.S. has provided Ukraine to $55 billion since Russia invaded over 110 days ago

The latest push comes after Ukrainian officers reported that they were having trouble matching Russia’s shell inventory in rocket strikes and artillery battles. 

“I informed President Zelensky that the United States is providing another $1 billion in security assistance for Ukraine, including additional artillery and coastal defense weapons, as well as ammunition for the artillery and advanced rocket systems that the Ukrainians need to support their defensive operations in Donbas,” Biden said in a statement.

The latest weapons package will include 18 howitzers, two Harpoon coastal defense systems, artillery rockets, 36,000 rounds of ammunition, secure radios, thousands of night vision devices, and funding for training. 

The money will be sourced in part from Pentagon stockpiles and as well as the congressional Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative. 

Biden also revealed that he will be providing aid to people whose lives are affected by the war.

“Today I am also announcing an additional $225 million in humanitarian assistance to help people inside Ukraine, by supplying safe drinking water, critical medical supplies and health care, food, shelter, and cash for families to purchase essential items,” the President said. 

Western officials are saying the war is reaching a pivotal point. Russia refocused its efforts after invading forces were pushed out of the capital Kyiv. It has since shifted its focus to Donbas and could take control in weeks due to its significant military advantage. 

French President Emmanuel Macros is requesting that Ukraine negotiate with Putin about ending the war. 

In the meantime, other countries are coming to Ukraine’s aid. Germany and the United Kingdom have offered long-range artillery rockets and ammunition while Slovakia is promising helicopters. 

Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin weighed in on the matter saying, “We can’t afford to let up and we can’t lose steam.”
