MONSTER fish with jaws big enough to swallow a child have been found lurking in the waters up the coast from the Fukushima nuclear disaster site. Fishermen tell tales of massive 'mutant' beasts which have been spotted since the toxic tragedy which rocked Japan eight years ago. One prehistoric-looking Wolffish was even caught by a professional "fish hunter" after he went looking for one of the giants. Hirasaka Hiroshi reeled in the monstrous creature during a trip to Hokkaido, Japan’s second largest island, near eastern Russia. Normally the deep-sea species grow up to three feet in length, but the horror Hiroshi landed was more than six feet long and weighed five times more than usual. His Twitter profile states: 'I live to chase interesting creatures,' and reveals he has written a book called 'Exotic Fish Species: I Caught, Judged and Tried Eating.' "It was worth flying to Hokkaido twice within three months. This guy is super cool” the fisherman posted on Twitter. … [Read more...] about How monster ‘Godzilla’ wolffish of Fukushima five times bigger than normal emerged after nuclear disaster

STATE prosecutors are set to ask judges to hand Cristiano Ronaldo a 23 month prison sentence when he appears in court on Tuesday to be tried on tax fraud charges. The 33-year-old will have to attend the hearing in person after his request to give evidence by video-conference from Italy was rejected, well-placed sources revealed today.

Prosecutors initially alleged Ronaldo had defrauded £12.95million but confirmed today they were accusing him of defrauding just over £5.3m. Prosecutors will also seek a heavy fine for the five-times Ballon d'Or winner. Ronaldo’s trial will start at 10am on Tuesday at Madrid’s Audiencia Provincial court, a day after the … [Read more...] about Cristiano Ronaldo to face court for ‘£5.2million tax evasion’ as prosecutors demand judge throw book at Juventus ace

For the past 40 years, thanks to satellite measurements, scientists have known that sea ice coverage in the Arctic is shrinking. Global warming has reduced the extent of ice in the region in summer, when it is at its lowest, by nearly 13 percent a decade. That has led some researchers to predict that the Arctic could be ice-free in summers by the middle of the century. But ice extent is only part of the story. Scientists want to know thickness, too, because together with extent that tells them the total volume of ice in the Arctic. Average thickness has also declined … [Read more...] about Ice Surveys and Neckties at Dinner: Here’s Life at an Arctic Outpost
