A former Thai navy Seal has died from a lack of air while placing air tanks inside the cave where 12 boys have been stranded for nearly two weeks. Maintaining air supplies inside the cave emerged as the “top priority” on Friday as rescuers faced the prospect of the boys remaining underground throughout the monsoon season that ends in October. The presence of hundreds of rescue workers inside the cave has been depleting the air supply the boys have been relying on, with oxygen inside their chamber down to about 15%, deputy army commander Chalongchai Chaiyakham said at a briefing on Friday. Normal oxygen levels in the air are about 21%. Chaiyakham said he was unsure how long the boys could survive in such conditions. “I’m not a medical person. I can’t answer that,” he said. Divers have released 30 tanks of air to try to restore healthy levels. The former Seal, identified as Saman Kunan, died around 1am on Friday morning after he was returning from … [Read more...] about Former Thai navy Seal diver Saman Kunan dies inside cave from lack of air

Oliver Brown Chief Sports Feature Writer 31 May 2018 • 4:03pm One wonders sometimes if Eddie Jones takes his cues for England training straight from the screenplay of Full Metal Jacket. For his boot camps are acquiring the type of “attrition rate” – that clinical rugby shorthand for dislocated ankles, cruciate ligament damage, and other career-ending nastiness – seldom found outside the notorious ‘Hell Week’ for US Navy Seals. All along, Jones’ justification for inflicting every shade of purgatory upon his troops has been to make them 20 per cent fitter for next autumn’s World Cup in Japan. This argument becomes tricky to sustain, though, when you run out of players to put through the mangle. Now, Bath owner Bruce Craig, alarmed at seeing five of his cohort...

Pope Francis did not tell a journalist that “hell does not exist”, the Vatican has insisted. Italian journalist Eugenio Scalfari published a report of an interview with the pontiff, and said he had asked him where “bad souls” go upon death, and where they are punished. The 93-year-old atheist, a co-founder of the La Reppublica newspaper, quoted Francis as saying: “They are not punished. Those who repent obtain God’s forgiveness and take their place among the ranks of those who contemplate him, but those who do not repent and cannot be forgiven disappear.
