Smugglers hid cocaine worth more than one million euros in a consignment of protective face masks. Officers found the 14kg haul in a Polish-registered van as it attempted to enter the UK through the Channel Tunnel. The driver, a 34-year-old Polish national, has been arrested. Ian Hanson, Border Force regional director, said it was “despicable” to think drug smugglers would try to exploit the Coronavirus situation. The face masks have been held pending checks by regulators, while the driver is being questioned in custody. Darren Herbert, from the National Crime Agency (NCA) Dover branch, said: “This seizure is further evidence of the way criminal networks are attempting to exploit the coronavirus outbreak to their own ends, covering this load of drugs with what would seem like vital protective equipment.” (https://bbc.in/3aj6vGk)

The study had one experimental group perform a stressful activity, while the other control group did not. Afterward, they were shown pictures of women with various body types. When the men in the control group were asked to rate the women on a scale of one to nine, they rated pictures of women with higher BMIs as the most attractive.

A California man may face charges in Arizona for intentionally coughing on a gas pump handle while referencing the spread of Coronavirus. The man, identified only as a 23-year-old guy from Winterhaven, was questioned after cops in Yuma received reports of video circulating on social media Saturday showing the unsanitary deed. The suspect later admitted to coughing on the pump during an interview Sunday at the Yuma Police Department, Sergeant Lori Franklin said. “He came in willingly and did a full interview,” Franklin said. “He admitted to the fact that that was him on the video.” The man got the idea “from other social media videos” he’d previously seen on the internet, police said in a statement. “He blatantly coughed on the handle and said, ‘This is how you get Coronavirus,’” Franklin said of the footage, which was posted to Snapchat. Charges of unlawful use of infectious biological substance — a felony — will now be sent to Yuma County prosecutors for review. (https://bit.ly/39KgfJu)
