Human antidepressants are building up in the brains of bass (cá vược), walleye and several other fish common to the Great Lakes region, scientists say.

"The levels of antidepressants found do not pose a danger to humans who eat the fish, especially in the U.S., where most people do not eat organs like the brain,"

This is a field of growing concern, especially as the use of such chemicals expands. The percentage of Americans taking antidepressants, for instance, rose 65 percent between 1999-2002 and 2011-14, according to the National Center for Health Statistics.

Wastewater treatment facilities have failed to keep pace with this growth, typically ignoring these drugs, which are then released into the environment,

Shoppers at a Walmart in Novi, Mich. were in for some frightening moments (giây phút sợ hãi) as they witnessed (chứng kiến) a woman pull out a loaded gun Monday afternoon. Police say the gun was pulled out during a fight over school supplies.

"One girl was going to buy a notebook. There was one left, some pushing resulted," Baetens says. "They began to argue who was the rightful purchaser of that notebook." Both duos of women were not backing down, as police and witnesses described the two women pulling the younger woman's hair (giật tóc).

That mother got shoved out of the way as the three continued to fight. That mother then pulled out a gun. "She's a valid CPL holder," Baetens says. "She pulled out her firearm and tells them to stop attacking her daughter while pointing the gun at them." The fight quickly ended as customers were seen running away and police were called.

Thà bị cá mập đuổi

A traffic stop turned into a multi-agency sea rescue (cứu hộ trên biển) after a suspect (kẻ tình nghi) misguidedly (lầm lạc, bị xui làm bậy) attempted to elude (chạy trốn) police officers by taking to the open ocean.

Surf City police officers stopped 20-year-old Zachary Kingsbury. Police spotted contraband (hàng lậu) in Kingsbury’s vehicle and asked the young man, who hails from Lynnwood, Washington, to step out of his vehicle. Shortly after police began interviewing him, Kingsburgy took off on foot, heading towards the beach.

As Surf City Police watched, Kingsbury continued running into the ocean and began swimming away from shore. Police deployed a drone (thiết bị bay không người lái) and were able to track Kingsbury for some time. At one point in the drone footage, provided by the Surf City Police Department, a shark (cá mập) can clearly be seen following Kingsbury through the water. At this point, Kingsbury had been swimming for nearly an hour an was more than 4,000 feet – the better part of a mile – off the coast...


Đồ chơi mới của Putin

Vladimir Putin has introduced the newest weapon in his arsenal - the enormous Schit machine designed to take his country's crowd control to the next level.

The exact specifications (thông số kỹ thuật) of the monster (quái vật) vehicle have yet to be released, but it looks similar to an 18-tonne police vehicle called The Bozena Riot, made in Slovakia, engineered to protect officers from football hooligans, violent mobs (đám đông bạo động), and aggressive political protesters (biểu tình chính trị).

Slovakia's police version is equipped with water cannon (vòi rồng) and gas canisters, and is designed to stop rioters in their tracks. It can shelter up to 38 riot officers behind its 24ft main shield, which is bullet and fire-proof (chống đạn và lửa), and can be expanded or retracted (có thể mở rộng hoặc thu hẹp) to fit down (vừa với) different sized streets (các khổ đường khác nhau).

Russia's model has been built by Kalashnikov Concern, which produces 95 percent of the weapons in the country and supplies arms (bán vũ khí) to 27 nations (27 nước) around the world (trên thế giới).
