Watch trained monkeys serve at a Japanese bar


A video of a monkey serving patrons at the Kayabukiya Tavern has gone viral. The Japanese bar, which looks like any other traditional ‘sake-house’ restaurant in Utsunomiya, Tochigi prefecture, has Macaque monkeys as waiters.

The 17-year-old Fuku-chan, a Macaque monkey, was given the job after she delivered a napkin to a table unprompted.

The owner of the restaurant, Kaoru Otsuka decided to pair Fuku-chan with Yat-chan– the original Macaque waiter. The idea paid off as several people from across the world visit the tavern to be served by the monkeys.
A recent video that shows Fuku-chan’s typical day at work has gone viral.

The monkey is seen dressed in a chequered waiter’s shirt and skirt, and can be seen bringing guests a beer and fetching napkins for diners….


Huge Scale Of Modern Slavery And Human Trafficking In UK Laid Bare In ‘Deeply Troubling’ Report

Modern slavery and human trafficking are affecting “every large town and city in the country”, the National Crime Agency (NCA) has said, revealing there are tens of thousands of victims.

The immense scale of the problem was detailed on Thursday in a “deeply troubling” new report and Labour has said Home Secretary Amber Rudd has “serious questions to answer”.

The NCA is currently assisting on 300 live police operations targeting modern slavery, with alleged victims as young as 12 being sold to families in the UK from Europe.

Will Kerr, director of vulnerabilities, said: “The more that we look for modern slavery, the more we find evidence of the widespread abuse of the vulnerable.

“The growing body of evidence we are collecting points to the scale being far larger than anyone previously thought….


War on ISIS: U.S. Bombing Pushes Final Christians Out of Raqqa

Intense bombing by the U.S-led coalition fighting to liberate Raqqa and deadly clashes in the de facto Syrian capital of the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) have pushed some of the last remaining Christians out of the city.

The harsh subjugation of minorities such as Christians is one of ISIS’s calling cards throughout the Middle East. The United Nations has called the group’s systematic destruction of the ethnic Yazidis in Iraq a genocide. The militants’ repression of other religious faiths it considers heretical has varied by degrees in the territory it controlled.

In Raqqa, ISIS gave the Christian population the choice of converting, paying a Christian tax known as jizya, a concept that dates back to the time of Islamic conquest, or fleeing under threat of death….

Migrants surprise sunbathers by rushing onto Spanish beach

Sunbathers on a Spanish beach were met with a very real reminder of Europe’s migrant crisis on Wednesday when a rubber dingy packed with people arrived on the shore.

Amateur video footage filmed by one of the beachgoers showed a black inflatable boat coming ashore in Cadiz, on the southern Spanish coast, filled with around two dozen people suspected to be migrants from Africa. As the boat pulled in to shallow water, the migrants on board quickly jumped out before scattering on the beach.

Carlos Sanz, who was on the beach and filmed the video, said the migrants soon vanished and were nowhere to be seen when police arrived some time later….

Grooming Gang: ‘White Women Are Good for Only One Thing – for People Like Me to *** and Use as Trash’

A member of the mostly-Muslim Newcastle sex grooming gang, which preyed on teenage girls, once told a female ticket inspector: “White women are good for only one thing – for people like me to *** and use as trash.”

Badrul Hussain, 37, (pictured, right) was found guilty of four drug offences Wednesday as part of ‘Operation Sanctuary’, the UK’s largest investigation into grooming gangs since Rochdale and Rotherham.

Mr Hussain made the expletive-laden comment after being caught travelling without a ticket on the Tyne and Wear Metro in 2014 by a white female rail employee, The Times reports, laying bare his contemptuous attitude to non-Muslim women….


Today’s Headlines Signal Convergence with ‘End of Days’ Scenario, Rabbi Says

JERUSALEM, Israel – You only have to look at today’s headlines to see that history is speeding up and the world is moving closer to an end of days scenario, a popular Israeli rabbi said.

In anticipation of the upcoming solar eclipse on August 21 and the alignment of stars and planets in September, CBN News asked historian and Rabbi Ken Spiro what Judaism has to say about the relation of celestial events to prophecy and the coming of the Messiah.

“We’re only a few headlines away from direct convergence of that biblical end of days scenario with the headlines in the news today,” Spiro told CBN News. But the question is not so much about what’s happening in the sky as what’s happening on the ground….
