London Zoo’s tiger cub, first born at zoo in 17 years, drowns
STORY HIGHLIGHTS Keepers “heartbroken” as tiger cub found dead in enclosure at London Zoo Newborn animal believed to have drowned in pond after mother carried it outside Three-week-old cub was first Sumatran tiger to be born at zoo in 17 years London (CNN) — Keepers at London Zoo are “distraught” after a newborn tiger cub — the first Sumatran tiger born there for 17 years — drowned in a pool at its enclosure. The animal was born to five-year-old first-time-mom Melati just three weeks ago, and its arrival was greeted with huge excitement and celebration at the zoo, where experts were “over-the-moon” about the birth. But on Saturday, keepers raised the alarm when they could no longer see the young tiger on cameras inside its den; a search of the enclosure revealed the animal’s body. It is thought Melati carried the cub out into the paddock area of the zoo’s “Tiger Territory,” where it fell into the pond and drowned. Meet the newest resident at London Zoo Animals weighing in at London Zoo Wanted: Female for last surviving fish “We’re heartbroken by what’s happened,” said London Zoo’s Malcolm Fitzpatrick. Melati is said to be a very nervous tiger who prefers routine, and experts at the zoo had opted to allow her full access to the whole enclosure fearing that any changes to her environment might cause her to injure or abandon her cub. “At the time we thought it was in the best interests of Melati and her cub to allow her continued access to the full enclosure as normal,” Fitzpatrick said. “We didn’t want to put her on edge by changing her surroundings or routines, in case she abandoned or attacked the cub.” London Zoo is to carry out a full review of the circumstances which led to the cub’s death. “We would do anything to turn back the clock, and nobody could be more upset about what’s happened than the keepers who work with the tigers every day,” said Fitzpatrick. They are devoted to those tigers and are distraught.” The zoo had kept Melati’s pregnancy a secret for about 105 days before her cub was born on September 22. Hidden cameras were installed in her enclosure to keep watch over her throughout, and the speedy birth, which lasted just six minutes, was also caught on video.

It was kind of hard, because I wanted to be out there competing, Freeland said. Its healing. It actually feels much better than before. The remedy was physical therapy and short but intense workout sessions this fall, which includes sprints and weight training.Shes currently preparing for the indoor season, and is expected to once again be a force. As a junior she won indoor DCIAA and DCSAA titles in the 300 and 500 meter, and also took city crowns in the 800 and 1,600 meter. During the outdoor season, she captured DCIAA and DCSAA titles in the 200 and 300 meter, the 300-meter hurdles and took city titles in the 800 and 1,600 meter events. Freeland said she plans to make a college decision before February, and was intrigued with Mississippi State, she said. They have a nice facility. The first day that they offered me, they had my attention, Freeland said. College is on my mind. But my main goal is to accomplish what I have to accomplish in high school to get to that next stage of college. NUMBER CRUNCH: 9 The number of wins the undefeated Crossland boys soccer team has this fall, after winning 9-0 over Surrattsville on Wednesday. The Cavaliers have posted six consecutive shutouts, and have outscored opponents 53-3 this season. BREAKFAST LINKS Alex and Rachel Andrejev use their relationship to thrive on the volleyball court, and that was on full display Wednesday night as No. 7 Langley upset No. 2 Madison. Plenty of players took punishment in a physical girls soccer showdown between Arundel and Broadneck Wednesday, which ended in 1-1 draw after a 100 minute marathon.
It takes more than a few heavily armed secret service dudes to put them off. And, most importantly, in this country, just because you are a former first lady and secretary of state, that doesnt mean you cannot pay your 3:30 hourly parking rate and expect to get away with it. The secret service guys remonstrated. The warden continued calmly writing his ticket. Then he stuck it to the windshield in time-honored fashion. It came with an 80 fine. The good news is it will reduce to 40 if paid within 14 days. Alas, there is fat chance of that happening. The fine will never be paid. Diplomats in London have racked up 70million in unpaid congestion charges (it costs 10 a day to use your car in central London) and a further 7.5m in unpaid parking fines. The Americans along with other foreign embassies – claim diplomatic immunity and refuse to pay them. The issue has become unsurprisingly contentious in London, and in 2011 London Mayor Boris Johnson asked US President Barack Obama to pay the outstanding charges when he attended a Buckingham Palace banquet.

London Marriott Hotel West India Quay will be raising its own glass to the show thats inspired spin-offs, fan clubs and, at this hotel at least, three new specialty cocktails. Click here for high-resolution version LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM–(Marketwired – Oct 17, 2013) – For 50 years, audiences have accompanied The Doctor on his adventures through time and space. Now the moment has arrived to reflect on the characters, villains, events and backstage stories that have made this show a cultural icon. As people flock to the official, sold-out event at London’s ExCeL venue from 22 to 24 November 2013, the London Marriott Hotel West India Quay will be raising its own glass to the show that’s inspired spin-offs, fan clubs and, at this hotel at least, three new specialty cocktails. In an appropriate juxtaposition of heroes and villains, the cocktails are named for The Doctor’s trusty sonic screwdriver and his arch-enemies, the Daleks. Guests of this London hotel near ExCeL , for example, can channel their inner Doctors when they sip the Laser Screwdriver’s powerful mix of vodka, Cointreau, Passoa and passion-fruit juice, all of which is poured over a dollop of passion fruit-and-mango sorbet in a martini glass. The Sonic Screwdriver adds a touch of bubbly with vodka, Orange Curacao, a dash of grenadine and a topper of Champagne, all served in a Champagne flute and garnished with a playful twist of orange. The Dalekquiri, meanwhile, nods to The Doctor’s worst enemies, the Daleks, and accordingly caters to a more decadent taste profile with vodka, Kahlua, Bailey’s Irish Cream with a Hint of Mint Chocolate, chocolate liqueur and banana served, appropriately, within a hurricane glass. Sipping any one of these specialty cocktails may not turn guests into The Doctor or his companion, but they will afford them the opportunity to experience one of the finest restaurants overlooking Canary Wharf . Visitors can choose to relax in the newly refurbished Lobby Bar, or book a table at Manhattan Grill, an upscale steakhouse where stylishly inviting decor meets painstakingly prepared steaks and other entree options like linguine and salmon. This Canary Wharf restaurant also offers private dining for groups of 10 to 40, an exciting option for not just “Doctor Who” fans looking to gather at a hotel near London’s ExCeL after the event, but for anyone interested in booking an exclusive culinary experience. While “Doctor Who” will live to save another day in the next season, guests can only taste these specialty cocktails for the duration of the anniversary event. After then, those who missed the opportunity will need their own TARDIS to try them.
