  • 'Please son, renounce the hate': Father disowns Charlottesville protest son in open letter news

    The father of a man who was identified from pictures after attending the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville has written a heart-wrenching open letter disowning his son. Other members of his family have also asked the man, who calls himself a fascist, to change his name. Pearce Tefft, appearing distraught and baffled, wrote that he did not know where his son learned his "twisted worldview". He wrote in a local paper: "[My son] once joked, 'the thing about us fascists is, it’s not that we don’t believe in freedom of speech. You can say whatever you want. We’ll just throw you in an oven.' "Peter, you will have to shovel our bodies into the oven, too. Please son, renounce the hate, accept and love all." Peter Tefft, from Fargo, North Dakota, was identified from photographs of him at the rally which were widely circulated on social media. He then appeared to confirm he was at the rally, writing on Facebook; "Ultimately, this was a victory for us. Our movement will be emboldened by Charlottesville". Mr Tefft also posted a photograph of himself in the area before the rally. He is the youngest son of Pearce Tefft, who wrote: "On Friday night, my son traveled to Charlottesville, Va., and was interviewed by a national news outlet while marching with reported white nationalists, who allegedly went on to kill a person. "I, along with all of his siblings and his entire family, wish to loudly repudiate my son’s vile, hateful and racist rhetoric and actions. We do not know specifically where he learned these beliefs. He did not learn them at home. "I have shared my home and hearth with friends and acquaintances of every race, gender and creed. I have taught all of my children that all men and women are created equal. That we must love each other all the same." He also wrote that he knew of his son's beliefs, but had remained silent about them. This is heartbreaking to read as a parent. And brave. And thank you. Especially as a public statement.— Jessica Mason Pieklo (@Hegemommy) August 14, 2017 He said: "Evidently Peter has chosen to unlearn these lessons, much to my and his family’s heartbreak and distress. We have been silent up until now, but now we see that this was a mistake. It was the silence of good people that allowed the Nazis to flourish the first time around, and it is the silence of good people that is allowing them to flourish now." Pearce Tefft then went on to say he and the family had decided to disown his youngest son, saying he is no longer welcome at family gatherings until he renounces his beliefs. He wrote: "Peter Tefft, my son, is not welcome at our family gatherings any longer. I pray my prodigal son will renounce his hateful beliefs and return home. Then and only then will I lay out the feast." Mr Tefft also wrote that the family had faced abuse following the revelations about his son: "His hateful opinions are bringing hateful rhetoric to his siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews as well as his parents. Why must we be guilty by association? Again, none of his beliefs were learned at home. We do not, never have, and never will, accept his twisted worldview." Peter Tefft's nephew, Jacob Scott Weiber, condemned his uncle. He wrote on Facebook: "For anybody who is looking at my Facebook account because they found me through my nazi uncle, Peter Tefft, I would like it to be known that I have nothing to do with him, I utterly repudiate him, and I repudiate his vile nazi ideology. "My whole family also repudiates him, and his beliefs. We don't know where he got them. We are extremely disappointed in him, he is not welcome in any of our homes or at any of our family gatherings, and, forthwith until he renounces said beliefs, we will have nothing to do with him or any of his putrid nazi friends. "Peter, if you are reading this, PLEASE CHANGE YOUR NAME IMMEDIATELY. You are bringing shame and ignominy on your whole family, and causing a great deal of heartbreak and distress for all of us. A number of individuals have already begun harassing your siblings and other relatives, because they think we are associated with you. We are NOT, we never will be, and every one of us will resist you to our last breath, if you continue to fight to bring about the fascist America you so crave to see. "Just know that you will have to shovel OUR bodies into the ovens, too." Peter Tefft has denied being a Nazi, but he has told news stations that he is a fascist. He said: "Fascist, I think fascism is just loving your family and doing what's best for your nation". However, he said that the only reason he won't call himself a Nazi as well as a fascist is because he thinks the word is used as "a slur towards white people". Charlottesville far-right protest

  • Google’s Pixel 2 is copying the wrong phone news

    Thanks to the entirely expected Google Pixel 2 leak we saw earlier this week, we have confirmations for several of the Pixel 2 rumors out there. I say "expected" because we’re looking at documentation Google filed with the FCC, which leaked just like the original Pixel’s FCC documents a year ago. Among the things we learned from Google’s paper trail, is the fact that HTC is indeed building the Pixel for Google. That’s probably why the phone will get a unique, albeit unnecessary new feature that has HTC written all over it. HTC launched the U11 flagship earlier this year, a phone that lacks the all-screen display that almost every other Android flagship out there has. Instead, it features a squeezable edge gimmick supposed to make it stand out from the crowd. Squeeze the edge of the phone and get a particular action such as opening the camera app. Personally, I’d rather have a gigantic screen than a squeezable frame. For some reason, probably because HTC makes the phone, Google chose to adopt this feature for its next Pixel handset. That means it’ll add squeeze support to Android 8.0, or at least the software version that will run on the Pixel 2. The Pixel 2’s squeezable housing will be called Active Edge, and it’ll let you launch the Google Assistant. It’s unclear what other features will be associated with it, or whether Google will replicate the HTC U11’s squeeze features on the Pixel 2. Samsung’s Galaxy S8 doesn’t have a squeezable frame, but it does feature a dedicated hardware button that can call up the voice assistant. Perhaps Google should've copied the S8's button — and it's all-screen design — instead of the U11. The Pixel 2 will definitely be the "boring" Pixel phone this year, featuring a smartphone design that’s already outdated, and at least one feature that we shouldn’t be bothered with. The Pixel 2 XL, meanwhile, will have the all-screen design we want. The phone will made by LG, so it’ll be interesting to see whether it’ll also have the squeezable frame gimmick.

  • 'It still fits': Engagement ring missing for more than a decade turns up on garden carrot news

    A woman who was resigned to never seeing her beautiful engagement ring ever again - and had bought a smaller one as a replacement - was shocked when her daughter-in-law found it on a carrot. The family had harvested some carrots from their farm in Alberta, Canada, for dinner, and one had grown around the engagement ring, which was then pulled from the ground. Mary Grams, 84, had lost her beloved ring in 2004 while she was in the garden, and thought she would never see it again. "I recognized it right away," she said. Mary Grams, 84, got her missing ring back when her daughter-in-law found it while harvesting carrots on the family farm in Alberta, Canada. Credit:  CBC News She thinks she lost it while pulling a large weed from the garden. "We looked high and low on our hands and knees," she told CBC news.  "We couldn't find it. I thought for sure either they rototilled it or something happened to it." Mrs Grams has had the ring since 1951, a year before she married her husband, Norman.  Mary, 84, says she didn't know if they were kidding or not, but when her granddaughter brought the carrot over - she knew: "It's mine!"— Sarah Kraus Global (@SarahNKraus) August 15, 2017 The ring was found by her daughter-in-law, Colleen Daley. "I knew it had to belong to either grandma or my mother-in-law," she said, "because no other women have lived on that farm. "I asked my husband if he recognized the ring. And he said yeah. His mother had lost her engagement ring years ago in the garden and never found it again. And it turned up on this carrot." A few weeks after losing her engagement ring, Mary bought herself this one, much smaller, to replace it.— Sarah Kraus Global (@SarahNKraus) August 15, 2017  Mrs Grams said she is pleased the ring was found. "I'm going to wear it because it still fits," she said.

    Several "probably man-made" objects were floating near the suspected crash site of MH370 just weeks after it vanished, Australian researchers revealed Wednesday, more than six months after the hunt for the doomed jet was called off. A massive underwater search for the Malaysia Airlines plane, which disappeared in March 2014 with 239 people on board, ended in January after no trace of the aircraft was found in a 120,000 square kilometre (46,000 square mile) zone in the remote southern Indian Ocean off Australia's west coast. On Wednesday, two new studies said photos taken by French military satellites two weeks after the plane's disappearance, but not released to the public, showed at least 70 identifiable objects floating close to the so-called "northern area".

  • Scary video shows a bear charging a dog in Alaska news

    A mama black bear was caught on camera charging a Siberian husky at a campground in Alaska.  The recently released clip, from a campground in Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, shows a bear and her three cubs approaching a trailer from the woods on July 5. When the bear spots the dog it delivers a bluff charge, and the bear and husky get into a brief fight off camera. A woman can then be heard yelling at the bear, which returns to its cubs and runs away.  Tom Henderson, who uploaded the video earlier this month, said in an email that his wife is the person heard yelling in the clip. Fortunately, the dog was unharmed in the scuffle, despite its screams. Henderson also said that bear sightings are not uncommon in the camp, though they have not had a problem like this before. Unfortunate interactions between humans and wildlife are unfortunately common in the area. In June a man was mauled after brown bear with a sow got defensive.  Mashable has reached out to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game for additional information.

  • Galaxy Note 8’s killer specs and feature list were just confirmed news

    Among Android fans, there are pretty much only three exciting smartphone launches left this year. One is the Essential phone, though that's mostly just morbid curiosity — not many people are actually going to buy one. The second is obviously Google's upcoming second-generation Pixel phone launch, which will yield two new handsets expected to be called the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Finally, we have the big one that's coming next week: Samsung's new Galaxy Note 8. Expectations couldn't be higher for Samsung's new flagship phablet, and the company has plenty to prove following last year's Galaxy Note 7 debacle. Now, with just over a week left to go until Samsung's new Galaxy Note 8 is unveiled, the phone's specs and features were just confirmed in a big leak. When Samsung executives take the stage next Wednesday to unveil the company's hot new handset, nothing they announce will come as a surprise. Every detail imaginable has already leaked at this point, though some details have come from unproven sources. Well, if there was any doubt left in our minds regarding the Galaxy Note 8's specs or features, today's leak should do the trick. GFXBench on Tuesday posted the results of a benchmark test that was run on the Exynos-powered version of Samsung's new flagship phone. As is always the case, the phone's specs and features were recorded by the system when the test was being performed. Here's a screenshot of most of the data that was provided: Starting at the top, we can see that the Galaxy Note 8 will ship with Android 7.1.1 Nougat, thought Samsung is likely already testing Android O on the device for a future update. The display will measure 6.4 inches diagonally and will sport Quad HD resolution, and this particular model features an octa-core Exynos processor. The US version of Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 will be powered by a Snapdragon chipset. 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage are both confirmed in this leak, as a huge chunk of the Note 8's feature list. You can check out the GFXBench listing for yourself right here.
