France will allow thousands of Calais refugees to cross Channel if UK votes for Brexit,

Wow......that is truly a BIG threat.

Emmanuel Macron said France could exit the 'Touquet' agreement that currently allows British immigration checks in Calais and Dunkirk.
“The day this relationship unravels, migrants will no longer be in Calais,” he said.

Current regulations mean that entry to the UK can be refused before entering the Channel Tunnel or boarding ferries, rather than once passengers exit on British soil the other side

.Moving the Border Force checks to the UK could mean that refugees would be the other side of the Channel before being discovered, giving them the right to apply for asylum and stay in the country until a decision is made.

Importer recalls fish from Vietnam that went to Aldi stores

Almost 26,000 pounds of Sea Queen brand Swai fillets from Vietnam are being recalled because they were distributed in the U.S. without having met federal inspection requirements for residues.

This is a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product
will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death,
according to the recall notice.

The recall notice does not include complete distribution details, but does state the recalled fish was sent to Aldi distribution centers in Connecticut, Georgia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Tennessee. It was not disclosed what stores those centers serve. Dates of distribution also were not provided.

Consumers can identify the recalled skinless and boneless Sea Queen brand “Swai Fillet” products, which were produced and packed on March 30 in Vietnam by Golden Quality Seafood Corp., by the following packaging information:

Two-pound packages containing individually wrapped pieces of fish;
Plant number FN1158;
Lot number SW1601-02-16090; and
Best-by date of March 30, 2018.

12 Hospitalized After Chemical Spill at Willy Wonka Candy Factory

Workers were making Nerds when a 5-gallon container of lithium chloride spilled


“It’s a product used in, I believe, the humidifying system here,” Itasca deputy fire chief John Radzinski said.
By 6 a.m., several of the employees had been treated and released at area hospitals. All are expected to be okay, officials said.

Information on how the spill happened has not been released. Radzinski said the hazmat response was “in an abundance of caution.”

Well, at least we know where nerds come from.

It seems I am in deep legal trouble, of yet an unknown nature

"Hi, this message is intended to contact you. My name is Kevin Mason and I'm calling to contact you regarding an enforcement action executed by the U.S. Treasury.
Ignoring this will be an intentional offense to avoid initial appearance before a Magistrate Judge or a Grand Jury for a federal criminal offense.
My number is: 360-203-0031. I advise you to cooperate with us and help us to help you. Thank you."

The message was in a loop that kept repeating until I stopped it. "kevin" had an Indian accent.

I must say, the first sentence is very interesting.

edited to add: the phone number is from western Washington state outside metropolitan Seattle.

Seems like a smart thing to do, don't ya think?


Officers may have shot Orlando club patrons

ORLANDO — Omar Mateen, the killer who claimed allegiance to the Islamic State, hid in a bathroom at Pulse, a gay nightclub where he had slaughtered scores of people. A wall of cinder block separated him from a team of police officers outside. For three hours early Sunday morning, crisis negotiators tried to end the siege.

Then Mateen — whom police said had acted “cool and calm” during discussions — talked about killing more people. Alarmed, police placed an explosive device against the wall and detonated it. The breach failed; the hole wasn’t large enough to allow for a successful rescue.

A cop rammed his Bearcat armored vehicle through the club wall. Hostages poured out. So did Mateen, guns blazing.
With quick efficiency, officers shot him dead.

A law enforcement source close to the investigation who asked not to be named said a crowd of up to 300 people and the complex layout of the dance club may have resulted in some patrons being struck by gunfire from officers.
