Researchers Find 115 Plastic Cups In Dead Whale's Stomach

A dead sperm whale found in Indonesia had at least 13 pounds of garbage in its stomach, including 115 plastic cups and two sandals, according to a team of researchers including the World Wide Fund For Nature. "Although we have not been able to deduce the cause of death, the facts that we see are truly awful," Dwi Suprapti, a marine species conservation coordinator at WWF Indonesia, told The Associated Press. The dead animal was found earlier this week on Kapota Island, Southeast Sulawesi by a team from Wakatobi National Park, according to The Jakarta Post . The newspaper reported that the animal was starting to decompose when it was found. In addition to the cups and sandals, the WWF said the following items were found in the animal's stomach: 19 pieces of hard plastic, four plastic bottles, 25 plastic bags, and about seven pounds of rope. A photo of the materials found inside the whale posted by the WWF shows a teeming mound of garbage, including a tangle of what appears to be string

NFL Fans Are Still Buzzing About The Rams 54-51 Win Over Kansas City

Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit AUDIE CORNISH, HOST: NFL fans are still buzzing about last night's game of the year. (SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING) UNIDENTIFIED ANNOUNCER: Goff on first down. Everett in stride. Wow, touchdown Rams. CORNISH: The LA Rams outlasted the Kansas City Chiefs in front of an exhausted national TV audience, 54 to 51. It was the rare matchup between two of the league's best teams that actually delivered on all of its promises. Fans and pundits alike are calling last night's game the future of the NFL. Oh, and by the way, it was the first game in NFL history that both teams topped 50 points. Earlier today, we talked to sports writer Robert Mays of the Ringer on Skype. He said it was more than sheer numbers that made this game unusual. ROBERT MAYS: I think it was just kind of the inevitability that came with every possession. I mean, for the most part, you have NFL teams that have realistic defenses. They can stop people. And on Monday night, it just felt

Migrants Forced Off Ship After They Refused To Return To Libya

The Libyan coast guard forcibly removed more than 70 migrants from a ship that had rescued them after the migrants refused to disembark, saying they had been imprisoned and tortured in Libya before and feared going back. The migrants have now been placed in Libyan detention centers, which are notorious for human rights abuses including torture and slavery. Several migrants were reportedly injured in the forced removal and have been hospitalized. The migrants attempted to cross the Mediterranean in a rubber boat more than a week ago, and were picked up by a cargo ship that brought them to Libya, docking in the port city of Misrata. Amnesty International said last week that the ship's return to Libya "appears to be a clear breach of international law, given that Libya cannot be considered a safe place to disembark." Fourteen of the rescued migrants, including some children, agreed to leave the boat and enter Libyan detention centers. But the rest remained on board, describing concerns
