Man Tries to Set Bronx Deli on Fire After Arguing With Employee

The New York Police Department (NYPD) asked the public for help identifying a man who tried to set fire to a store in the Bronx neighborhood of Wakefield on Sunday, September 23, after an earlier dispute with an employee.

The New York Daily News, citing police, said the suspect had a beer in his hand when he first entered the store and argued with an employee when they refused to allow him to leave and pay for cigars later on. The NYPD said an employee extinguished the fire with water, there were no injuries, and the store sustained only minor damage. Credit: New York Police Department via Storyful

Beluga Whale Briefly Glimpsed in River Thames

A beluga whale was sighed on Tuesday, September 25 in the Thames estuary – a far cry from its typical environment in the Artic. This footage, filmed by wildlife observer Michael Hoit, shows a brief glimpse of the whale. According to a report from The Guardian, a veterinarian from British Divers Marine Life Rescue was monitoring the beast, and spokewoman Julia Cable said that the animal was “swimming strongly and appears to be feeding, so there is no indication that it is unwell or acting strangely.” She added that the beluga may have been forced from its northern habitat by storms. According to the Whale and Dolphin Conservation, only 20 sightings of Beluga whales have taken place in the UK, “but these have occurred off Northumberland, Northern Ireland and Scotland.” Credit: Michael Hoit via Storyful

Sailor Encounters Enchanting Bioluminescent Dolphins2m49s

Sailor Encounters Enchanting Bioluminescent Dolphins

Dean Cropp has a dream job, working as the captain of a charter catamaran to sail around beautiful locations. He and his crew mates were sailing in the Pacific Ocean north of Sydney when they came across a pod of brightly glowing dolphins. The bioluminescence was produced not from the dolphins themselves but from plankton densely populating the ocean around them. When the plankton was disturbed by the movement of the dolphins, they emitted bright light in blue, green and red. The stunning display seems almost too spectacular to be true. While infrequent, the phenomenon has been captured off the Sydney coast before. Bioluminescence on Sydney beaches in March and April 2014 was reported by local media.
