North Korea has executed its defence chief on treason charges, Seoul’s National Intelligence Service was quoted as telling lawmakers, in the latest of a series of high-level purges since Kim Jong Un took power after his father’s death in 2011.

Hyon Yong Chol, who heads the isolated country’s military, was purged and then executed by firing squad with an antiaircraft gun, watched by hundreds of people, South Korean media reported on Wednesday, citing the NIS’s comments to a parliamentary panel.

Hyon, who spoke at a security conference in Moscow in April, was said to have shown disrespect to Kim by dozing off at a military event, media said, citing the agency briefing.

Vienna has installed pedestrian crossing lights depicting straight, gay and lesbian couples as the city prepares to host a series of events linked to themes of tolerance – including the Eurovision Song Contest, won in 2014 by the cross-dressing Austrian singer Conchita Wurst.

The city has started setting up walk, don’t walk lights that show pairs of figures instead of the usual stick men. Some depict a man and a woman; others, two women or two men.

The lights are being erected at 47 crossings and will stay up until June. Vienna hosts several events linked to tolerance during that time, including the Life Ball, Europe’s biggest charity event for Aids and HIV research, and the Eurovision Song Contest.

    Doc If your phone gets wet, remove the battery, use some canned air and blow all the crevices and cracks you can see then place face down in a sunny location for a couple hours, that should work.

    Almost 40 minutes up to Banyan’s; slow. On the way saw, flying, two non-mallard ducks and one short hawk. Then the usual 65 minutes down and around to Sloan. The four cubs were out and I would have stopped to try for a photo but of course did not bring the nonfunctioning Samsung S4.

      I take a more aggressive approach when drying out soggy electronics, I disassemble as much I can with out doing damage including unscrewing covers, batt removal too, then get my air hose with a blower nozzle and blow from the center out gently, let the air flow thru for about 30 seconds to a minute, then place in a warm spot overnight, next day reassemble and test.
