DONALD TRUMP GAINS YET ANOTHER REPUBLICAN ENDORSEMENT
Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson threw his support behind Republican frontrunner Donald Trump on Friday. The ex-presidential hopeful said that he had “buried the hatchet” with Trump and appreciated the front-runner’s message of party unity. In a statement on Friday, Carson expressed concern for the state of the Republican party, saying that they were trying to “thwart the will of the people”. Trump accepted Carson’s nomination, saying that he would play a “big, big role” in a potential Trump administration.
TRUMP SUPPORTER THREATENS TO KILL BLACK PROTESTER
Donald Trump’s North Carolina rally was interrupted several times by protesters. As they were being escorted out of the rally, one protester was punched in the face by 78 year old John McGraw. McGraw later said that the protester deserved it and if he met him again, he “might have to kill him”. Police have arrested McGraw, charging him with assault. He is set to be tried on April 6th, and his bond has been set at $2500. When asked about the assault, Trump said he did not condone it, and hoped that his comments about wanting to punch a protester in the face did not facilitate the violence.
BROWNS CUT JOHNNY ‘FOOTBALL’ MANZIEL
The Cleveland Browns are a struggling NFL team, in need of a major overhaul. In 2014, they attempted to begin the rebuild by drafting Johnny Manziel 22nd overall as a potential franchise player. However, the last two years of Manziel’s career have been marred by many legal troubles. The most recent accusation comes from Manziel’s ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley, who accused the quarterback of domestic violence on January 30. Manziel has denied the charges, but police have said that he could face a league imposed suspension.
PLASTIC EATING BACTERIA COULD BE SAVIOR OF THE PLANET
Plastic pollution is fast becoming the world’s largest contributor to climate change. However, scientists in Japan have discovered a new strain of bacteria that is able to break down the plastic known as Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), the kind normally used in plastic water bottles. he findings, published in the academic journal 'Science' on Friday, say that "Ideonella sakaiensisbreaks down the plastic by using two enzymes to hydrolyze PET and a primary reaction intermediate, eventually yielding basic building blocks for growth."This could be really good news for the environment. Almost a third of all plastic packaging escapes collection systems and ends up in nature or clogging up infrastructure, the World Economic Forum (WEF) warned.
