What happens when lava meets water? One might be tempted to think that lava just pours forth, quickly cools down and solidifies.

An Indiana middle school student armed with two handguns opened fire inside his science classroom on Friday, authorities said, wounding a classmate and a teacher whose swift intervention was credited with saving lives. The shooter, who had asked to be dismissed from the class before returning with the guns, was arrested "extremely quickly" after the incident around 9 am at Noblesville West Middle School, police Chief Kevin Jowitt said. Authorities didn’t release his name or say whether he had been in trouble before but indicated he likely acted alone. Seventh-grader Ethan Stonebraker said the student was acting suspiciously when he walked into the room while the class was taking a test. He said science teacher Jason Seaman likely averted a catastrophe. "Our science teacher immediately ran at him, swatted a gun out of his hand and tackled him to the ground," Stonebraker said. "If it weren’t for him, more of us would have been injured for sure." Stonebraker told ABC News that Seaman threw a basketball at the shooter and ran toward the bullets as screaming students sought cover behind a table. Evacuated middle school students wait on a bus outside Noblesville High School Credit: Getty He said he also knew the suspected gunman, whom he described as "a nice kid most of the times" and said he often joked with the classmates. "It’s just a shock he would do something like that," Stonebraker said. The attack comes a week after an attack at a high school in Santa Fe, Texas, that killed eight students and two teachers, and months after the school attack that killed 17 people in Parkland, Florida. The Florida attack inspired students from that school and others throughout the country to call for more restrictions on access to guns. Seaman’s brother, Jeremy Seaman, told The Indianapolis Star that his brother was shot three times and was undergoing surgery. He said he was conscious after the shooting and talked with his wife, telling her he was OK. Jeremy Seaman, who now lives in Arizona, said his brother was a defensive end for Southern Illinois University’s football team and has never been a person to run away. Evacuated students and staff march to buses to be carried offsite outside Noblesville West Middle School Credit: Getty Authorities released no information about conditions of the two victims, who were taken to Indianapolis hospitals. Indiana University Health spokeswoman Danielle Sirilla said the teacher was taken to IU Health Methodist Hospital and the wounded student was taken to Riley Hospital for Children. She didn’t know the seriousness of their injuries. Hours after the shooting, law enforcement agents sealed off part of an upmarket neighbourhood in Noblesville but weren’t commenting on whether the suspect lived there. Sandy McWilliams, a member of a landscaping crew working nearby, said six officers toting assault rifles entered a home. Students were bused to the Noblesville High School gym, where hundreds of parents and other family members arrived to retrieve them. Authorities referred to a prompt and heroic response at the school but didn’t confirm accounts of the teacher tackling the student or describe the role of the resource officer who was stationed at the school. Florida shooting | Victims' families speak out in the White House When asked to elaborate on his praise of the response, Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter said: "Wait ’til one day we can tell you that story. You’ll be proud of them, too." Eighth-grader Chris Navarro said he was inside an auditorium when he heard several gunshots about a minute before the bell rang for the change in classes. "The speaker came on and said we were on lockdown and people rushed in and we went to the back of the room. I went into this little room in the back with three other people," he said. Jennifer Morris, who was among the worried parents who rushed to get their kids, appeared slightly dazed and said she was at work when her 14-year-old son sent a text message about the shooting, stunning her. "He said, ’I’m OK, please come get me.’ That was probably 20 minutes after it happened," Morris said. "It’s like a bad dream. I don’t know how you get the kids through this. This isn’t something you’re trained for as a parent." Instructional Assistant Paige Rose reacts outside Noblesville West Middle School Credit: Getty Gov. Eric Holcomb, who was returning from a trip to Europe on Friday, issued a statement saying he and other state leaders were getting updates about the situation and that 100 state police officers had been made available to work with local law enforcement. "Our thoughts are with all those affected by this horrible situation," Holcomb said. Noblesville, which is about 20 miles (32 kilometers) northeast of Indianapolis, is home to about 50,000 people. The middle school has about 1,300 students from grades 6-8. The school’s academic year was scheduled to end next Friday. Indiana’s Senate Democrats issued a statement in response to Friday’s school shooting expressing their condolences to the victims and calling for steps to prevent such shootings, including restrictions on guns.

Canadian police are hunting for two men who set off a homemade bomb in an Indian restaurant in Mississauga, injuring 15 people on Thursday evening. Footage released by police shows the two suspects entering the city's Bombay Bhel restaurant with an object resembling a paint can moments before the bomb went off. The pair fled the scene late on Thursday and a manhunt is under way. The motive for the attack is unknown and there was no immediate claim of responsibility.

"Every police resource is being used right now to locate the people responsible for this horrendous act." Peel Regional Police said they received a call at just after 10.30pm local time (3.30am BST).

Mississauga, which is Canada's sixth largest city and has a population of 700,000, is near Lake Ontario and about 20 miles west of Toronto. The explosion in Mississauga comes a month after a driver ploughed his white Ryder rental van into a lunch-hour crowd in Toronto, killing 10 people and injuring 15.
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt's security detail has cost taxpayers about $3.4 million so far, up more than 30 percent from his predecessor during an equivalent period, according to details released by the agency, which said Pruitt's life had been threatened. Pruitt, who environmental groups have accused of lax enforcement and cozy ties with industry, requested 24-hour protection beginning on his first day in office. It was an unusual measure for the nation's top environmental regulator, and Pruitt and the agency have said it was justified by a high number of threats to his life.
Netflix has now come out with a mini-series on the robbery and returns to a question that has divided opinion for 15 years: was that man, one Brian Wells, a willing accomplice, or was he the unwitting victim of a bizarre plot? The four fast-moving episodes of "Evil Genius," directed by Barbara Schroeder and Trey Borzillieri, look back at all the puzzles that made up this heist in Erie, a small city in the Great Lakes region. In his hand he carries pages of rambling, hand-written instructions for a sort of a scavenger hunt for keys and combinations hidden around Erie that would remove the collar.
Although the F-35 saw its first combat duty this week in Israel, the Jewish state has reportedly decided to purchase more of the most advanced version of Boeing’s F-15 rather than buy more Joint Strike Fighters. On May 16, Flight Global—an aviation-focused news source—reported that Israel is proposing a deal to purchase twenty-five F-15Is in an advanced configuration. This would double the number of F-15Is the Israeli Air Force (IAF) currently operates.
Amazon Alexa recorded owner's conversation and sent to 'random' contact, couple complains
A woman whose private conversation with her husband was recorded by their Amazon Alexa and sent to a friend by email without their knowledge said she feels "invaded" by the worrying intrusion. Luckily for the the Oregon couple, the discussion picked up by the hands-free devices placed around their home went no further than the subject of hardwood flooring. But Danielle, who did not want to give her last name in local press reports, said that although the conversation was not highly personal, she nevertheless felt her privacy had been compromised by what Amazon said was a series of unfortunate events. Every room in the family home in Portland is wired with the devices, which control the home's heat, lighting and security system. Amazon said Alexa misinterpreted the conversation as a set of demands which led to the conversation being packaged up and sent to a seemingly random contact. During the conversation in question, Danielle received a call from one of her husband's employees, warning the couple: "unplug your Alexa devices right now! You're being hacked.” "We unplugged all of them and he proceeded to tell us that he had received audio files of recordings from inside our house," she told her local ABC news station. "At first, my husband was, like, 'no you didn't!' And the (recipient of the message) said 'You sat there talking about hardwood floors.' And we said, 'oh gosh, you really did hear us.'" She unplugged all of her devices and contacted Amazon, who sent engineers to her house. Danielle said they apologised to her profusely. However, she said the device did not audibly advise her it was preparing to send the recording, which it is programmed to do. Amazon has given an explanation for the strange event, insisting its devices do not listen to customers unless they are "woken up" by the word “Alexa.” According to the company, in this instance an “unlikely” series of events occurred, which lead to the device thinking the pair wanted their conversation about hardwood floors recorded and sent to their friend. Amazon Alexa | Everything you need to know A spokesperson explained: "Echo woke up due to a word in background conversation sounding like 'Alexa.' Then, the subsequent conversation was heard as a 'send message' request. "At which point, Alexa said out loud 'To whom?' At which point, the background conversation was interpreted as a name in the customer’s contact list. Alexa then asked out loud, '[contact name], right?' "Alexa then interpreted background conversation as 'right'. As unlikely as this string of events is, we are evaluating options to make this case even less likely." Many have been suspicious of the company encouraging customers to place listening devices in every room of their homes. However, Amazon maintains this event was a malfunction, and not proof that Alexa is always “listening.” In the past, the company has filed patent applications for more invasive listening devices, which record all of the time. One such application included an algorithm that would analyse when people say they “love” or “bought” something. This patent included a diagram in which two people having a telephone conversation were given separate targeted advertisements after they hung up. There were also worries in 2016 when scientists found that voice assistants could be woken up by sounds unintelligible to humans. The group found that commands could be hidden in white noise, with the device switching on and going to websites without being asked by a human. In May, these findings went further, with researchers claiming they could embed commands directly into recordings of music or spoken text. This could mean that as a human listens to music, the voice assistant may hear an instruction to send a message, or add a product to a shopping list.

"You have to have a 'yes or no' option," Schrems said in an interview recorded in Vienna before he filed the complaints in various European jurisdictions.
