Paramedic on duty among two killed by Israeli fire in Gaza, 300+ more injured




Two people have been killed in Gaza, including a paramedic on duty, the Palestinian Health Ministry reports. 

The Palestinian Red Crescent says that over 307 people have been injured and that 57 of these were hit by live bullets.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) told RT it “condemns the killing of the medic Abdullah al-Qatati while on duty today by the Israeli occupation in Rafah.”

“Abdullah volunteered with the Medical Relief Society to provide medical assistance to affected people during the March of Return,” it said.

Qatiti was killed in Rafah in southern Gaza and five other paramedics have been injured. 

Saeed Aloul was reported dead by the Health Ministry. Journalists Alaa Abdel Fatah and Mahmoud al-Jamal have also been injured, local media reports.

The violence took place as Palestinians in Gaza continue their weekly March of Return protests amidst heightened attacks between the Israel Defense Forces and Hamas’ al Qassam Brigade.
  
An Israeli airstrike killed three people on Wednesday, including a pregnant woman and her 18-month-old daughter. Rockets fired by Hamas have not killed any Israelis.

The weekly protests see Palestinians calling for their right to return to the land they were expelled from during the foundation of the state of Israel. 

More than 150 Palestinians have been killed since the protests began on March 30. Qatati is the third paramedic to be killed in the protests.

Armenian protesters block traffic, railways & airport as protest leader loses PM bid

Anti-government protesters disrupted traffic in Armenia’s capital, blocking railways and roads leading to Yerevan International Airport, after the parliament voted against opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan’s bid for interim PM.
Protesters managed to block streets connecting downtown Yerevan to residential districts, disrupting transportation in Armenia’s capital, footage from the scene shows. 
Yerevan’s metro system has also been paralyzed as demonstrators sit on the tracks, preventing trains from passing.
Meanwhile, protesters disrupted traffic on a road leading to Yerevan’s Zvartnots International Airport, located just 12km from the center of the city. 
Consequently, some passengers had to go the rest of the way on foot in order to catch their flights, according to Sputnik news agency.
Railway services have also been disrupted all across the country amid the demonstrations, a spokesman for South Caucasus Railways confirmed to Interfax. 
Some other highways, including the one connecting th…

Strange phenomenon under Africa threatens to flip Earth’s magnetic field

Earth’s magnetic field is decaying at such a rapid rate that scientists think the poles may flip. 
New research shows the most significant weakening is happening under Africa, in an area called the ‘South Atlantic Anomaly.’
As well as giving us our north and south poles, the magnetic field blankets the Earth, protecting it from solar winds and cosmic radiation. 
Without it there would likely be no life on our planet today. 
However, the forcefield has weakened significantly in the past 160 years and scientists have suggested that it could be in the process of flipping. 
Effectively this means a switch in magnetic polarity and would see compasses point south instead of north.
Strangely, this has actually happened several times in the history of the planet, occurring roughly every 200,000 to 300,000 years. 
Approximately 40,000 years ago, it attempted to switch before snapping back into place. 
This NASA illustration captures the enormous disruption to the fields during a reversal:

Professor Stephen Hawking Says Knows What Existed Before The Big Bang

According to the latest comments made by Professor Stephen Hawking, Before the Big Bang, time existed in a bent state that was distorted along another dimension.
The famous theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has an answer to the enigma of what existed before the Big Bang, the beginning of the Universe, 13,800 million years ago.
In an interview with his colleague Neil deGrasse Tyson in the TV show ‘Star Talk‘ broadcasted on the National Geographic Channel, Hawking explained what existed before the universe.
“The boundary condition of the universe…is that it has no boundary,” Hawking said.
According to this theory, the history of the universe is not a flat line but a four-dimensional, curved object, “just as the surface of the Earth, but with two more dimensions,” Hawking said. 
As explained by Professor Hawking, the Big Bang was practically the formation as we today understand as ‘time,’ since this event, 13,800 million years ago, broke the known laws of physics. 
It also means that anyth…
