There was nothing Zionist about Hitler’s plans for the Jews

When the former London mayor Ken Livingstone said in an interview that Hitler was “supporting Zionism” before he “went mad and ended up killing six million Jews”, he was quickly suspended from the Labour Party, which was already in the throes of a painful row over anti-semitism. But while Livingstone’s tone-deaf comments came at a very politically sensitive moment, the historical error at their heart is all too familiar.

Wedding cancelled due to shortage of ice cream

Shortage of ice-cream at a marriage function in Uttar Pradesh, India, led to a heated argument between the families of the bride and the groom and resulted in brick-throwing in which three police personnel were injured.
The wedding was ultimately called off after. "The incident took place last evening in Mahesh Nagar colony in Mathura, when after the 'Jaimaala ceremony' the host and few members from the groom side entered into heated argument over the shortage of ice-cream," police said.
"It finally led to a clash between the two families," Superintendent of Police (Rural) Arun Kumar Singh said. The groom's family then called the police, and based on their complaint, seven persons from the bride's side were arrested, he said. "Angry over police action, members from the bride's side, including women, started pelting stones at police.

"They also blocked the road," Mr Singh said, adding that one constable and two sub-inspectors were injured in the brick-throwing. "Also, police had to use force to clear blockade on Raya-Sadabad road," he added. First Information Reports were lodged by both the sides. Following the incident, members from the groom's side and groom returned without taking his bride.

Strange and Beautiful Deep Sea Jellyfish

What does this creature remind you of? A space alien? A virus? A cartoon? It’s real, a real jellyfish recorded by an ROV from the ship Okeanos Explorer on a NOAA expedition to the Mariana Trench. This video was taken 2.3 miles below the ocean’s surface.
Scientific American has more:
Scientists believe this animal belongs to the genus Crossota, a group of jellies that does not have a sessile polyp stage; all phases of their lives are ocean drifters. They also believe this animal is an ambush predator – note the posture it had assumed in the first half of the video: its bell motionless with its tentacles outstretched like the struts of a spider’s web, waiting for something to bumble into them. The red canals, they suggest, appear to connect the bright yellow objects, which may be gonads.
