Is Rick Snyder killing off witnesses? Part 2: | 22 April 2016 | A woman involved in a lawsuit over the lead-contaminated water crisis in Flint, Michigan was reportedly found shot to death in her home along with another individual. On Tuesday, police found the bodies of two women inside of a townhouse, where they also found a one-year-old who was unharmed. Both women were shot, and have been identified as Sasha Bell and Sacorya Reed. Police are treating the deaths as homicides and have a suspect in custody, but no charges have been filed. Notably, the Flint Journal reports that Sasha Bell was one of the first individuals to file a lawsuit over the water crisis in Flint, which saw city water become contaminated with lead after officials chose to switch to the Flint River as its main drinking source.

NASA’s goal of sending humans to Mars requires some extra cash, so a $21 million budget increase proposed by a Senate committee would seem like welcome news. However, there are strings attached that actually leave the Mars mission underfunded.

This past week, the US Senate Committee on Appropriations proposed an allocation of $19.3 billion for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) budget for the 2017 fiscal year, which runs from October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2017. Combined with funding from the Departments of Commerce, Justice, and Science, the total $65.4 billion sum seems generous enough, but what the senators hope to accomplish with that money is not quite what some had in mind.’

Separately, Israel’s Channel 10 TV said a Russian warplane approached an Israeli warplane off the Mediterranean coast of Syria last week but that there was no contact between them.

Israel has repeatedly violated Syrian airspace and bombed targets inside the country which is fighting foreign-backed militants.’
