South Koreans urge more funding for trauma care after defector drama By Josh Smith and Heekyong Yang SEOUL (Reuters) - A defector’s treatment for critical injuries suffered during a dramatic dash from North Korea has highlighted a shortage of South Korean trauma doctors and again underscored Seoul's lack of preparedness in the event of hostilities with Pyongyang.

The murderous cult leader, who died last week aged 83, struck up a friendship with a male correspondent who first wrote to him in the 1990s, TMZ reported. The man reportedly sent 50 unanswered letters to Manson at the California State Prison until he eventually received a reply. Manson then talked to him by telephone and the pen pal started visiting him in jail starting in 2002. According to a yellowing will obtained by TMZ, and dated Feb 14, 2002, Manson left all his belongings, including his clothes and money, to the pen pal. Manson also left to the man rights to use his name and image, and control of songs he had written. The pen pal, who TMZ did not name, also had the right to claim Manson's body within 10 days of his death, and told the news website that he intended to do so. If he does not claim it then the killer will be cremated by the California prison system. According to the will Manson chose specifically to disinherit his known and unknown children, former wives, all relatives, friends, and lawyers. The pen pal said he last spoke to Manson by phone on Oct 21 The will was typed but included some scrawled handwriting, which appeared to match Manson's known style. It included the message: "I'm not in the best spot to rest in peace." The will was said to have been witnessed by one of Manson's fellow inmates.

Among the victims was actress Sharon Tate, the pregnant wife of filmmaker Roman Polanski. She was stabbed 16 times by cult members. A section of the will said Charles Manson, Prisoner B33920, wished to have his body released to the custody of the pen pal who was "my one and only executor of any services, viewings, funeral arrangements, or otherwise, in his judgment OF MY WISHES only". Manson also said that he was "of a sound mind".

Annette Poitras, 56, was out walking her dogs on Monday when she fell, injuring herself and losing her phone in remote British Columbia.

Her husband Marcel said the three dogs, which did not leave her side during the ordeal, helped to keep her alive. Annette Poitras, could not have survived over two days in the wilderness without the help of her dogs Credit: Coquitlam Search and Rescue Mr Poitras said that his wife and the dogs - a border collie called Chloe, a boxer named Roxy, and Bubba, a pug-beagle mix - looked after each other over two days and two nights, with no supplies and periods of "torrential" rain. He said his wife used her coat to keep Roxy, the short-haired boxer, warm and took her lead from the dogs who dug a hole in the undergrowth to sleep in, following suit. "One of them was cuddling [her] and one of them was on guard and the other one was looking for food," he told Global News. Annette Poitras Credit: Coquitlam Search and Rescue None of the dogs left her side, he added. Over 100 rescuers combed the wilderness near Eagle Mountain to try and find Mrs Poitras after her husband reported her missing on Monday. Two helicopters were also used in the search.

The rescue team said she was "alive and in good condition" quite far into the Coquitlam Watershed and off trail, in dense bush and swamp. Mr Poitras said his wife was recovering and will be released from hospital this week. The couple are looking forward to "quiet, peace, walking dogs, visiting family" now the ordeal is over, he added.  German SPD considers propping up Merkel, but only if members agree By Thomas Escritt BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany's Social Democrats agreed on Friday, under intense pressure, to hold talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel on renewing their outgoing coalition government, but pledged that party members would have the final say on any deal.

How One Really Big Tank Helped Save Russia from Hitler Capturing Moscow In the first six months of Operation Barbarossa, the brutal Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union, Panzer tanks overran hundreds of miles of Soviet territory and reached the outskirts of Moscow before winter weather and reinforcements from Siberia brought a halt to their advance. In a period when the Red Army seemed on the verge of collapse, a lumbering forty-eight-ton heavy tank that could absorb German tank shells like so many spitballs was one factor that bought it badly needed time. The Red Army was an early practitioner of mechanized warfare, with thousands of light T-26 and BT tanks in its operational units when Germany invaded.

Church of Sweden to stop clergy calling God 'he' or 'the Lord' in bid to crack down on gendered language The Church of Sweden is encouraging its clergy to use the gender-neutral term "God" instead of referring to the deity as "he" or "the Lord".  The decision was made on Thursday, wrapping up an eight-day meeting of the church's 251-member decision-making body. The decision will take effect on May 20 during Pentecost. It is the latest move by the national Evangelical Lutheran church to modernise its 31-year-old handbook setting out how services should be conducted. The decision to update the book of worship gives priests new options on how to refer to God during their services.  Priests can now open their services by referring to the traditional "Father, son and Holy Ghost" or the gender-neutral phrase "in the name of God and the Holy Trinity". Other gender-neutral options are available for other parts of the Church of Sweden liturgy. Gender-neutral terms checklist "We talk about Jesus Christ, but in a few places we have changed it to say 'God' instead of 'he'," Church of Sweden spokesperson Sofija Pedersen Videke told The Telegraph. "We have some prayer options that are more gender-neutral than others." "A wide majority of people decided on the book," she said, adding that she had heard of no priests who objected to the new linguistic framework. The Church of Sweden is headed by Archbishop Antje Jackelen, who was elected Sweden's first female archbishop in 2013. Archbishop Jackelen defended the decision, telling Sweden's TT news agency: "Theologically, for instance, we know that God is beyond our gender determinations, God is not human."  The decision was met with some criticism.  Christer Pahlmblad, an associate theology professor at Lund University in Sweden, told Danish newspaper Kristeligt Dagblad that the decision was "undermining the doctrine of the Trinity and the community with the other Christian churches." "It really isn't smart if the Church of Sweden becomes known as a church that does not respect the common theology heritage," he said. The Church of Sweden has 6.1 million baptised members in a country with a population of 10 million.  The Church of England told The Telegraph that it also chooses to avoid divisive language in its services, but not with regards to God.  “When liturgy is revised we also seek to use inclusive language where appropriate when referring to people,” a spokesperson said.  “The Church of England has always used masculine language when speaking about God, for example in the words of the Lord’s Prayer – ‘our Father, who art in Heaven’ – and in referring to God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and continues to do so." The decision by the Church of Sweden mirrors an international trend for inclusivity in major churches. Earlier this month, the Church of England published guidelines for helping children “explore the possibilities of who they might be", including their gender identity.   US, S. Korea to stage massive air exercise in show of force The United States will send stealth fighters to a large-scale air force drill with South Korea next month, the US military said Friday, in a new show of force aimed at North Korea.
