Wsbtv:Body found near Chattahoochee River ID’d as missing CDC worker

ATLANTA – Channel 2 Action News has learned that the body found near the Chattahoochee River late Tuesday night is Timothy Cunningham.

Cunningham — who worked at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — left work on Feb. 12, saying he wasn’t feeling well. The 35-year-old hadn’t been seen since.

The medical examiner said the preliminary cause of death for Cunningham is drowning but she said officials are still determining the exact cause of death

The CDC said initial reports that Cunningham had been passed over for a promotion shortly before his disappearance were incorrect.

The day before he vanished, Cunningham had a conversation with his family that was quite concerning.

“We were aware of some concerns at work that he had shared with us and there were some personal issues too,” Atlanta Police Maj. Michael O’Connor said.

Telegraph:Salisbury spy attack: Sergei Skripal no longer in critical condition and ‘improving rapidly’

Sergei Skripal, the former double agent who was poisoned in the Salisbury spy attack, is no longer in a critical condition and is “improving rapidly”, his doctors have said.

Mr Skripal has been in hospital since March 4 after he was exposed to a military-grade nerve agent.

His daughter, Yulia, was also exposed to the agent which was identified as belonging to the Novichok family, and doctors said last week that her condition had improved and she was now stable.

On Thursday Ms Skripal spoke for the first time since the poisonings and said her father was “sleeping”

Telegraph:Baby wipes ’cause food allergy’, new study warns

parents should avoid using infant wipes and thoroughly wash soap off their babies to reduce the risk of childhood food allergies, scientists have warned.

Researchers have hailed a “major advance” in understanding what causes the complaints after tests revealed links between skin damage and intolerance to certain foods.

They suggest that an increasing failure by parents to rinse away soap after washing their babies is contributing to the rise in childhood food allergies.

Kyodo:Cherry blossoms at Fukushima nuclear complex shown to media

The operator of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant invited journalists Wednesday to the plant to see hundreds of cherry blossom trees as they have come into full bloom.

While each day 5,000 people work at the plant to decommission the complex more than seven years after the tsunami-triggered nuclear crisis, workers said the cherry blossoms are soothing their minds as they tackle their jobs in protective clothing with full-face mask.

“I feel comforted when I walk past the trees,” said a 36-year-old man who engages in dismantling tanks.

Warhistoryonline:Thomas Hudner, Who Crashed his Plane to Save a Friend he Was Awarded the Medal Of Honor

Between November 27th, and December 13th, 1950, 30,000 United Nations troops fought a desperate defense while surrounded by 120,000 Chinese soldiers. The U.N. troops were part of a task force given the difficult job of securing South Korea’s freedom and independence from her Communist counterpart to the north. The fighting was marked with intense cold, snow, and horror.

But over the heads of the infantry and tankers on the ground, the United States had unleashed one of the largest collections of airpower since World War 2. The 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, along with the five aircraft carriers of US Navy Task Force 77 flew 260 sorties daily, with the ground troops being supplied by US Air Force planes from Japan. While these planes were usually able to fly with impunity, one, flown by the first African-American fighter pilot in the United States Navy, Jesse L. Brown, was shot down on December 4th, 1950.
