A peer-reviewed study in an academic journal has proved what you might have assumed you already knew: Adolf Hitler is dead and has been since he killed himself in his bunker in April 1945. That scientists are devoting serious attention to proving this more than 70 years after the event may initially seem bizarre. But almost from the moment the Fuhrer died, a cottage industry of conspiracy theories sprung up to say he was still alive. Read more Submarine rumoured to have helped Nazis flee to Argentina is found Hitler has been ‘spotted’ emerging from a German U-boat in Argentina with Eva Braun in 1945, surrounded by adoring fugitive Nazis in 1950s Columbia, and approaching the end of his days in the 1980s as a happy nonagenarian with a younger Brazilian girlfriend. Now, though, French scientists have been allowed to examine a jawbone that has been jealously guarded in the archives of the Russian secret service since the 1940s. The analysis published in the … [Read more...] about Adolf Hitler really is dead: scientific study debunks conspiracy theories that he escaped to South America

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has detected in Washington DC, what appears to be the unauthorised use of a controversial technology that allows for surveillance of people's mobile phones - although it has not been able to pinpoint who or what is causing it, it revealed in a letter released earlier this week. The technology, a mobile-tower simulator commonly known as a StingRay, has been deployed for years by federal and local law enforcement to pinpoint suspects' locations, though its unauthorised use in the Washington area raises fears that foreign adversaries might also be taking advantage of it to spy on American citizens.

Thirteen at Columbine. Twenty-six at Sandy Hook. Seventeen at Marjory Stoneman Douglas. Over the past two decades, a handful of massacres that have come to define school shootings in this country are almost always remembered for the students and educators slain. Death tolls are repeated so often that the numbers and places become permanently linked. What those figures fail to capture, though, is the collateral damage of this uniquely American crisis. Beginning with Columbine in 1999, more than 187,000 students attending at least 193 primary or secondary schools have experienced a shooting on campus during school hours, according to a year-long Washington Post analysis. This means that the number of children who have been shaken by gunfire in the places they go to learn exceeds the population of Eugene, Oregon, or Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
