The human remains that were discovered near a popular hiking spot have been confirmed as those of a Wisconsin teacher who has been missing since June, Slovenian police announced on Saturday.

Police in the country’s capital of Ljubljana said that identification tests established the death of Jonathan Luskin, 25, of Wisconsin. Police said the remains were discovered on Dec. 23 at Iski Vintgar gorge displayed no signs of foul play.

Luskin was reported missing to Slovenian authorities on July 25. Family members said Luskin, who worked as a teacher in Hong Kong, traveled with them in Austria and Germany before parting in June. The family said Luskin wanted to extend his trip with a visit to Slovenia.

The man’s mother, Susan Stone, told ABC News in August that the last time she saw her son was when he departed Vienna to head to Ljubljana by train. She said her son texted a friend in Hong Kong through WhatsApp to tell them he arrived in Slovenia and wanted to hike at the Triglav National Park. She said her son planned on traveling throughout Europe, Greece and Croatia after visiting Slovenia.

Stone said she reported her son missing to the U.S. State Department on July 20 after she didn’t hear from him for weeks.

Mysterious Light Seen in Mars Photograph

A bright glowing light was captured earlier this month by one of the cameras aboard NASA’s Curiosity rover.

The long-lived rover has certainly encountered its fair share of mysteries during its time trundling across the Martian surface and this latest enigma is no exception.

While conspiracy theorists have been quick to suggest that the anomalous light could be evidence of intelligent life on Mars, the actual explanation is likely to be a lot more mundane.

According to Curiosity’s navcam operator Justin Maki, such anomalies are in fact nothing new.

“In the thousands of images we’ve received from Curiosity, we see ones with bright spots nearly every week,” he said.

“These can be caused by cosmic-ray hits or sunlight glinting from rock surfaces, as the most likely explanations.”

Exactly which of these possibilities accounts for this particular example however remains unclear.

Cat filter blunder turns conference in to a farce

The filter made the conference difficult to take seriously.

A Pakistani minister was left red-faced after a cat filter was accidentally enabled on his Facebook livestream.

Journalist Shaukat Yousafzai – who had previously served as regional health minister as well as an adviser to Pakistan’s prime minister, Imran Khan – was giving a briefing to reporters about a serious political matter when the incident happened.

Somehow one of his team members had managed to inadvertently enable the cat filter on the livestream, meaning that the broadcast showed Yousafzai with a pair of cartoon pointy ears superimposed on to his head along with a set of whiskers and a pointy nose.

The humorous blunder ended up going viral and left social media sites awash with feline puns.

Yousafzai later commented on the incident by noting that two officials sitting next to him had also been ‘altered’ by the cat filter. He blamed ‘human error’ by one of his team’s ‘hard-working volunteers.’

Whether the individual responsible is still part of his team however remains unclear.
