A Man Threatens to Jump off Burnaby Bridge

Rail traffic disrupted after a man threatened to jump off Burnaby Road railway bridge this morning.
The unnamed man, in his thirties and from Southsea, was seen on the railway bridge at 8.30am by a passer by.
The police immediately contacted network rail, who shut off the power to the live rail. There were no trains leaving from Portsmouth Harbour station until noon, but disruptions were minimal as there were only three trains backed into station.
It is suspected that the man was on the bridge because his wife had taken their two children and left after having an affair with another man.
Johnnie Duncan, a WHSmiths assistant manager, dialled 999. Mr Duncan was on his way to work when he spotted the man on the bridge, “It was very scary,” he said, the man “was waving his arms around and inching closer to the edge.”
While the man was up there a crowd gathered, some of whom were shouting at him to jump. Something which Detective Inspector Sharon Wheeler described as “rabid with stupidity.”
He would not come down until Father Maurice O'Reilly of St. Theresa's in Southsea, his parish priest, showed up on the scene. Father O'Reilly, who has recently had major heart surgery, was hauled up the embankment by police officers to calm the man down. “The only tricky part was climbing up the bank as I'm not as young as I used to be,” Father O'Reilly said.
After about ten minutes Father O'Reilly put his arm around the man's shoulders and they were escorted safely back down to the road by police officers.
The man has been taken to hospital for a medical check up, and there may be charges pending.


England and France sharing resources and a nuclear weapon testing facility

Excuse me, what the fuck was that?!
They are TESTING nuclear weapons? Have they learned nothing from the past decades of what testing nuclear weapons does to the people and the areas surrounding the nuclear testing facility?!
It's a bit hypocritical as well seeing as Sarkozy was urging other people to follow his lead and disarm their nuclear armaments testing facilities... which is has now rearmed.
It's incredibly infuriating as the only thing that these weapons are good for are mutual destruction of whoever is involved in the fighting, and possible of a lot more destruction of the surrounding countries depending on how large the target is and whether it is an island or not...
It's so annoying that we have taken a step back with the rearmament of these sorts of facilities.

On the bright side, they have developed a new method for detecting cancerous tumours, with a virus which used the illuminating cells from a jelly fish. Slight glitch at the moment is the fact that the virus still spreads, so those who have continued the research from the guy who actually isolated the gene reckon it will be about another five years until it is ready for clinical trials.. But hey everything like this is positive as it's a step closer to beating cancer, as it allows them to detect the tumours more quickly and various cancers more easily - inevitably allowing to save many lives.
