Seven adorable puppies were found stranded on an uninhabited island in Canada

Seven adorable puppies were found stranded on an uninhabited island in CanadaLet's start with something positive: Seven
extremely cute puppies have been rescued from the wilds of Canada, and are right now on the road (literally) to a better life. The circumstances of how the puppies came to be stranded on an uninhabited island in the Canadian province of Manitoba remains a mystery, however. Most of the obvious possibilities here lead to some troubling conclusions. SEE ALSO: Internet, why won't you let me live stream this dog surfing competition?! The saga of the puppy rescue began on Monday when a volunteer for Winnipeg's Norway House Animal Rescue called in to report their existence. The roughly four-month-old pups had been discovered by a local boater, Junior Cook, near Cross Lake, Manitoba, about 300 miles north of Winnipeg. "He actually heard them the night before. He and his friend were out and it was getting dark already, and they heard some noises on the island," NHAR director Debra Vanderkhove told the CBC. The two couldn't see anything other than shadows, but they returned the next day to investigate. Instead of wolves (their initial suspicion), they found seven puppies. The men left food for the lot of them and called the Winnipeg shelter. In the days since the puppies were first discovered, Vanderkhove made the trip up to Manitoba, picked up the lot of them — "They will be the
Gilligan's Island crew — four boys, three girls," she said — and, as of Saturday, is driving them back to the shelter. All throughout, NHAR kept the public updated with Facebook posts featuring photos and videos of the rescued pups. There are so many more on the shelter's official Facebook page. It's wonderful to know that these tykes are safe and sound, and headed off to be cared for before they're placed in homes. But in a Facebook message exchange with Mashable, Vanderkhove wants everyone to remember that the pups shouldn't have been on that island in the first place. "Today the focus is on the puppies and getting them to the shelter. We're still driving. And tomorrow is another day for the fight on investigating this cruelty."

Israeli troops kill seven Palestinians on day of heightened Gaza border protests: medicsBy Nidal al-Mughrabi GAZA BORDER (Reuters) – Israeli troops shot dead seven Palestinian protesters and wounded at least 200 along the Israel-Gaza border on Friday, Gaza medical officials said, raising the death toll to 27 in the week-long disturbances. The day of violence, which saw bigger Palestinian crowds than in recent days but not as large as when the demonstration began last Friday, calmed down as night descended. Gazans, including Palestinian refugees and their descendants seeking to regain ancestral homes in what is now Israel, have set up tent encampments a few hundred meters (yards) inside the 65-km (40-mile) fence that separates Israel from the Gaza Strip.

Regulators search Cambridge Analytica's London offices for seven hours over Facebook row

Regulators search Cambridge Analytica's London offices for seven hours over Facebook rowEnforcement officers for the Information Commissioner spent nearly seven hours searching Cambridge Analytica's central London premises overnight. Elizabeth Denham, the Information Commissioner, has requested urgent access to the records of Cambridge Analytica, a company accused of harvesting the records of 50 million Facebook users. The data watchdog's investigation includes the acquisition and use of Facebook data by Cambridge Analytica, its parent company SCL and academic Dr Aleksandr Kogan, who developed the app used to gather data. It stems from claims over the harvesting of personal data – and whether it was used during Donald Trump's US presidential campaign or the Brexit referendum. After entering the building in New Oxford Street at 8pm on Friday, some of the team emerged on foot at around 2.50am on Saturday morning as a van, thought to be carrying evidence, left via a rear exit.

Mark Zuckerberg, the chief executive of Facebook, said that mistakes had been made after people's private information was passed on without their permission. He launched an investigation into all developers that were given access to "large amounts" of private data, in a clear sign that the scandal is likely to expand.
