Turtles seen with what appears to be swastikas painted on their shells

(CNN)Two turtles with what appear to be swastikas painted on their shells were seen in a park in Washington state. “There’s a side of me that wants to think the best in people, so I’m thinking perhaps it’s a cultural meaning,” said Phoukham Kelly Bounkeua. Renton police couldn’t immediately track down the turtles, they said. “Our Animal Control Officers will check their typical sunning spots from time to time in the hope of capturing them for a quick cleanup and health check,” their post said. Renton officials are now getting federal help to try to capture and clean the animals, they said, according to KIRO. A Rally Against Hate is scheduled Saturday afternoon at the park.

Journalist loses Indian citizenship after piece criticizing PM Modi

Aatish Taseer (Photo by Raj K Raj/Hindustan Times via Getty Images) The reasoning of India’s home ministry was that Taseer had “concealed the fact that his late father was of Pakistani origin” which made him ineligible for OCI status. Taseer said his connection to Pakistan had never been hidden. He said he’d never been given an official notice and instead found out via a public tweet on Thursday. Taseer’s father, Salman Taseer, was a Pakistani born in pre-partition British India.

On Monday, Mercury Will Transit Across The Sun

Solar telescopes at the ready! On Monday, November 11, Mercury will take a stroll across the Sun. The transit, as it is called, will be visible in Europe, Africa, and the Americas starting at 7:35 EST (12:35 GMT) and finishing at 13:04 EST (18:04 GMT). Mercury, the innermost planet in the Solar System, orbits around the Sun in slightly less than 88 days, overtaking Earth every three to fourth months. This also happens during special alignments and, in those cases, we see Mercury crossing the solar disk.

Emma Watson Wants To Rebrand Being Single As ‘Self-Partnered’ | Betches

Time after time, we’ve seen ways that celebrities are just like us, and apparently that includes being on their bullsh*t about relationships. In a new interview with trillions of dollars every year on wellness products, most of which don’t actually work (looking at you, Cosmopolitan declared that “zombie-ing” was the newest dating trend, supplanting ghosting as the behavior that sh*tty men could be expected to exhibit. As we pointed out, though, zombie-ing was quite similar to haunting, a term originated in 2016, and even then, the concept of a guy ghosting you then not leaving you alone wasn’t new. It can be fun to use new terms to describe a behavior, but there’s no reason to pretend that the behavior has not been done …
