The soccer kids reported hearing sounds from outside as soon as the divers found them. Rescuers should really try to find out if there is a back passage somewhere. They could just form a massive grid pattern about where they think the kids are but above ground, and shoot a gun as they walk the grid. If anybody in the cave hears them, they stop walking. Then each member of the search party shoots in turn. If there is a hole, they could locate it very quickly.

This has the great advantage of letting hundreds of people help in the rescue, not just a few advanced scuba divers.

Another thing they could try is to release some distinctive odor inside the cave. Then let dog teams go over the outside to locate the scent. I would suggest drug-sniffing dogs since so many of them are already trained to locate those specific scents. Also they are so sensitive, you wouldn't have to drug everybody in the cave. Just use a little bit of cannabis or opium.

I see North Korea is refuting Trump's claim that any real progress has been made toward denuclearization. Just as EVERYBODY but Trump expected. Who'd a thunk it? The scorpion is still a scorpion, and Pepe is still a poor dumb frog.

BTW, speaking of Pepe The Frog, I have noticed most use of Pepe images on 4chan are by posters who are miserable because of breakups, sexual identity crises, or planning suicide.

Six of the Thai soccer players have been rescued and are out of the cave. Six more, plus the coach still need to be.

All the kids and the coach are out! Now to rescue the rescuers. (Three divers and a doctor are still in the cave.)

Everybody is out now, all okay. They should give Saman Kunan, the diver who died the highest military honor they have. I would contribute to an internet fund for his wife. I think a lot of people would.

Apparently the exfiltration of the Thai SEALs and doctor was a near-run thing. The pump lowering the water level back failed and water started rising in the cave so they had to expedite their departure ahead of the flood.

Good evening,
The Trump administration is now using funds from by reallocating money from the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program.

According to documents leaked to Slate, funding is already being drained from the primary government programme for HIV/AIDS care in the US to fund the surge in detention work undertaken by the Office of Refugee Resettlement.
