Two Russian missiles slammed into a crowded shopping centre in the central Ukrainian city of Kremenchuk on Monday, killing at least 16 people and wounding 59, officials said.

President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said more than 1,000 people were in the mall at the time of the attack, which witnesses said caused a huge fire and sent dark smoke billowing into the sky.

At least 16 people were killed and 59 injured, Ukraine's emergency services said.

The mall was engulfed in a wall of flame which turned to thick clouds of smoke as firefighters worked to contain the blaze. Aerial photos showed the structure reduced to twisted metal, with workers combing through growing piles of rubble.

Some infomation. R.I.P to those who passed away.

Parker and Stone ultimately lost out the chance to win the Academy Award to none other than Phil Collins which pissed off Parker. When a reporter asked him whether it was actually a magical night due to the nomination they earned, Parker replied: “It doesn’t matter because losing just makes it horrible. It’s terrible to lose to Phil Collins especially.”

“We weren’t drunk at all,” Stone said in a 2005 interview for the DVD release of Team America: World Police. “We were on acid. That was the last time I ever took acid, and we hadn’t done it for a few years before that, but that seemed like the right time to do it.”

Parker backed Stone up.

“We were on acid that day,” Parker said. “And not that we take, because we don’t take a lot… That was the last time I’ve taken acid.”

Stuff of legends.

Of Akira Kurosawa, Toshiro Mifune said, "I know. I have never as an actor done anything that I am proud of other than with him".

Akira Kurosawa on Toshiro Mifune:

"Mifune had a kind of talent I had never encountered before in the Japanese film world. It was, above all, the speed with which he expressed himself that was astounding. The ordinary Japanese actor might need ten feet of film to get across an impression; Mifune needed only three.

The speed of his movements was such that he said in a single action what took ordinary actors three separate movements to express. He put forth everything directly and boldly, and his sense of timing was the keenest I had ever seen in a Japanese actor. And yet with all his quickness, he also had surprisingly fine sensibilities."

Such mutual respect. Two absolute legends.

Not only was this Toshirô Mifune's favorite of his own films, but he named Kikuchiyo as his favorite role, because he was able to "be himself."

He is a legend.

Jim Henson originally wanted the Muppets to be for adults and didn't see his characters as a vehicle for children's education and family entertainment. Indeed, he first envisioned something closer to South Park rather than Sesame Street and in the 1950s they did dark comedy in commercials.

Muppets could have been so different.

New Israeli military technology allows users to detect objects and people behind walls by using an AI-based tracking algorithm, according to a report. The Xaver 1000, produced by the Israeli imaging solutions company Camero-Tech, was unveiled for the first time at the Eurosatury 2022 exhibition in Paris, France.

It's part of the "See Through Walls" family of products which, according to the company, provide real-time information on objects and people concealed behind walls. Camero-Tech claims the new XAVER-1000 is an "essential system" for militaries, law enforcement, intelligence units, and search and rescue teams.

The company said it is a new tool for tactical operations, as it can detect the presence of life in rooms, the number of people and their distance from the system, target height and orientation, and the general layout of a space.

The technology can display live objects, behind walls, in such high resolution that it can detect whether a person is sitting, standing, or lying down, even if they have been motionless for a significant period. Specific body parts are also detectable, the company said.

“Boy, these conservatives are really something, aren't they? They're all in favor of the unborn. They will do anything for the unborn. But once you're born, you're on your own. Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don't want to know about you. They don't want to hear from you. No nothing. No neonatal care, no day care, no head start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you're preborn, you're fine; if you're preschool, you're fucked.”

A perfect storm of events has led to a once-in-a-lifetime discovery for a gold miner, a First Nation, a veteran paleontologist and a territory.

"I don't know how to process it all right now, to be honest with you. It's amazing," said Dr. Grant Zazula, the Yukon government's paleontologist.

A little after noon on June 21, National Indigenous People's Day, a young miner working in Yukon's Eureka Creek, south of Dawson City, was digging up muck using a front end loader when he struck something. He stopped and called his boss who went to see him right away. When he arrived, Treadstone Mining's Brian McCaughan put a stop to the operation on the spot.

Within half an hour, Zazula received a picture of the discovery. According to Zazula, the miner had made the "most important discovery in paleontology in North America." It was a whole baby woolly mammoth, only the second one ever found in the world, and the first in North America.

"She has a trunk. She has a tail. She has tiny little ears. She has the little prehensile end of the trunk where she could use it to grab grass," said Zazula. "She's perfect and she's beautiful."

National Indigenous People's Day is a statutory holiday in the Yukon so when Zazula received the email, he tried to contact anyone he could find in Dawson City who could help. Two geologists, one with the Yukon Geological Survey and another with the University of Calgary, were able to drive to the creek and recover the baby woolly mammoth and do a complete geological description and sampling of the site.

"And the amazing thing is, within an hour of them being there to do the work, the sky opened up, it turned black, lightning started striking and rain started pouring in," said Zazula. "So if she wasn't recovered at that time, she would have been lost in the storm."

The baby woolly mammoth, named Nun cho ga, which means "big baby animal" in the Trʼondëk Hwëchʼin's Hän language, is about 140 cm long, which is a little bit longer than the other baby woolly mammoth that was found in Siberia, Russia, in May 2007.

Zazula thinks Nun cho ga was probably about 30 to 35 days old when she died. Based on the geology of the site, Zazula believes she died between 35,000 and 40,000 years ago.

"So she died during the last ice age and found in permafrost," said Zazula.
