Big Rat Drops From Ceiling Onto Customer’s Menu at Buffalo Wild Wings in Westchester

General, Health
An unwelcome surprise dropped onto a woman's table at a Buffalo Wild Wings in the Westchester area of Los Angeles the other day — a live rat dropped from the ceiling onto her table. Alisha Norman says the manager claims construction is to blame. "I knew the rat was going to be injured because it hit like a Mack truck," she said. Norman says she hadn't even ordered when she heard something overhead. "You could hear something come down," she said. Norman, on vacation from Texas, says she requested a manager who came over to help, with two plates in his hands. "He took two plates and then they just picked it up and dumped it in a bag," she said. "It was terrible. It was disgusting." She's not angry. She says the manager took care of her bill, to compensate for the lunchtime fall

Iran shoots down American drone in international airspace, US official confirms

Politics
In a major provocation, Iran shot down an unarmed and unmanned U.S. Navy MQ-4C Triton drone while it was flying in international airspace over the Strait of Hormuz Thursday, a U.S. official told ABC News. The incident is sure to trigger serious discussions within the Trump administration about how to respond to a direct attack on a U.S. military asset that goes beyond recent attacks in the Middle East that the U.S. has blamed on Iran. Gen. Hossein Salami, commander of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, offered a strongly worded threat to the U.S. after the drone was downed. "Shooting down the American spy drone had a clear, decisive, firm and accurate message," he said, translated from Farsi. "The message is that the guardians of the borders of Islamic Iran will decisively

The semi-autonomous city of Hong Kong has been rocked by protests recently after a controversial extradition bill, one that allows 'suspects' to be taken back to mainland China for questioning, has reopened old wounds and grievances. The former British colony, which was handed back to Chinese rule in 1997, has endured an uneasy relationship with the mainland while attempting to keep its special status in a “one country, two systems,” agreement. Attempts by the Chinese Communist Party to further impose its will on the city have resulted in pro-democracy protests and civil disobedience, with activists most recently finding their voice in the 2014 'Umbrella Movement' which occupied large parts of Hong Kong for 79 days. Now Hong Kongers are out on the streets again, heading out in eve

Cristiano Ronaldo seems to ‘carry’ Portugal more than Lionel Messi does Argentina

Sports
Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are experiencing mixed fortunes on the international stage right now. The former has just entered his latest Copa America campaign and has made a nightmarish start on his quest to win a first trophy with Argentina's senior team. Messi could do little as his country suffered a first loss to Colombia in over a decade and opened a Copa America tournament with defeat for the first time since 1979. Upcoming games with Paraguay and Qatar should ensure that Messi and Argentina qualify from the group, but it doesn't bode well for their chances of going all the way. On the other hand, Ronaldo is seriously loving life in a Portugal shirt and bagged his second piece of silverware with his country in the UEFA Nations League. MESSI VS RONALDO INTERNAT...
