Killer cats: Roaming felines a threat to birds; study says they kill up to 3.7 billion a year Cats that live in the wild or indoor pets allowed to roam outdoors kill from 1.4 billion to as many as 3.7 billion birds in the continental U.S. each year, says a new study that escalates a decades-old debate over the feline threat to native animals.
The estimates are much higher than the hundreds of millions of annual bird deaths previously attributed to cats. The study also says that from 6.9 billion to as many as 20.7 billion mammals — mainly mice, shrews, rabbits and voles — are killed by cats annually in the Lower 48. The report is scheduled to be published Tuesday in “Nature Communications.”

Guantanamo Judge Furious After Surprise Censorship During ‘Black Sites’ Testimony GUANTANAMO NAVY BASE, Cuba — Someone else besides the judge and security officer sitting inside the maximum-security court here can impose censorship on what the public can see and hear at the Sept. 11 trial, it was disclosed Monday.
The role of an outside censor became clear when the audio turned to white noise during a discussion of a motion about the CIA’s black sites.
At least 150,000 people have been displaced in Mozambique due to intense flooding, according to the United Nations.
The UN said on Tuesday that the number displaced is expected to rise as fresh rains spread flooding northward.
At least 40 people have been killed so far by heavy rains and overflowing rivers in the southeastern African country, which is experiencing its worst floods in more than a decade.
“People in high-risk areas are still being rescued,” Rita Almeida, a spokeswoman for Mozambique’s National Disaster Management Institute, said.
“We are asking people to move out of houses that could be destroyed by rain,” Almeida said.
The south of the country has been worst-hit by the flood surge, especially in the province of Gaza where 150,000 residents have been forced to flee to higher ground, Patricia Nakell, a UN spokesperson, said.

About The Sixth Station
A New Thriller Based on the Real History Behind Religious Artifacts Like the Shroud of Turin and the Veil of Veronica
What if a relic could show us the actual face of Jesus? Could religious artifacts be used to gather his DNA? And if so, what would spur an attempt to clone Jesus? Who would try to stop it? Media personality and critic LINDA STASI has imagined these controversial questions in her winning debut thriller, THE SIXTH STATION (A Forge Hardcover, On-sale: January 22, 2012) due out this winter. Equal parts exciting and thought-provoking, full of nuanced characters and fascinating locations, and based on real history, THE SIXTH STATION will keep readers glued to the page and e-reader screen.
Stasi, columnist for The New York Post, was inspired to write the book when taken during a vacation to a holy shrine in Turkey—the house where the Virgin Mary lived out her years. Fascinated with what she hadn’t known about this historic site (and the fact that most people don’t even know about its existence), Stasi spent over six years researching, writing, and traveling around the world to see first-hand many religious relics, being led by experts, historians, priests, and even a hermetic nun. Though many have heard of the famous Shroud of Turin, Stasi found the trail of the more mysterious Veil of Veronica—and she began to explore the secret history behind this holy relic.
In THE SIXTH STATION, feisty reporter Alessandra Russo is preparing to cover the trial of the century at the UN in New York City. On trial is Demiel Ben Yusef, who some say is the world’s most dangerous terrorist, while others claim he is the Son of God. Russo ends up being tangled in the action when Yusef singles her out among hundreds of other journalists, sending her on an epic adventure as she attempts to uncover the truth…is Yusef the clone of Jesus? If so, where did the blood come from? And Russo also finds herself in the cross hairs as a powerful organization tries to stop her from finding the real story behind Yusef’s birth.
