    KINGSTON, Jamaica (JIS) – Minister without portfolio in the Ministry of Transport, Dr Morais Guy, said a provision is to be added to the Road Traffic Act to prohibit smoking of ganja while driving. He said if a person smokes ganja while driving or in charge of a motor vehicle on a road or other public place, he or she would be fined J$10,000. “We feel that we have the obligation and the responsibility to ensure that people who are driving should not be smoking at the same time,” Dr Guy said in the House of Representatives on Tuesday (June...

    WINTER HAVEN | Police are looking for a man who angrily launched himself head-first into the doors of a bus in Winter Haven on Saturday morning. Video from Winter Haven police shows a man exiting the bus at the Winter Haven bus terminal, 555 Ave. E. NW, after it made its regular stop about 11:35 a.m. The man wanted to travel to a new destination, and the bus driver told him he'd have to pay an additional $2 before he could go anywhere else, police spokeswoman Jamie Brown said. Brown said the passenger became extremely agitated when he realized he...

    A small study of people who self-identify as vampires were, understandably, reluctant to reveal their blood- and energy-draining proclivities to doctors and psychologists for fear of rejection and being labeled mentally ill.According to a Reuters story, “Research led by D.J. Williams, director of social work at Idaho State University, indicated that people who identify themselves as ‘real’ vampires – that is, needing others’ blood to gain energy – would not disclose their practices to those in the helping professions and risk reactions like ridicule, disgust and possible diagnosis of a mental illness.”“Newsweek,” in a short piece headlined “Real Vampires Exist...

    While we're taught that food that smells rotten should be thrown away, there are actually many foods that you eat whenever they've just started rotting. Of course, it's not pleasant to call these foods rotten, so we refer to them in different ways instead. Cheese Making cheese comes down to your ability to control rot. This is because milk is treated with bacteria and enzymes causing it to curdle. The curdles are then cut, formed and ripened into cheese. Stinkheads Another native Alaskan delicacy is what's known as stinkheads. These are King Salmon heads that have either been buried in...

We are an incredibly-flawed species, filled with lust and avarice and anger and greed, given to revenge and gossip and violence and hate. That God still loves us is something that demonstrates something about HIM, not us. Most humans yearn for freedom and to be left alone, but others want to control and censor and manipulate and rule over us.

    A Honduran woman carrying 3.3 lbs of liquid cocaine in her breast implants was arrested at the airport in Colombia's capital Bogota on Friday, police said. Paola Deyanira Sabillon, 22, was attempting to travel to Spain when her apparent nervousness aroused suspicion in the security line, airport police colonel Diego Rosero said. X-rays revealed a recent surgery on Sabillon's breasts and she confessed that an unknown substance had been implanted which she was meant to take to Barcelona, police added. Authorities said a preliminary investigation showed that the surgery took place at a clandestine clinic in the city of Pereira,...

But as Wolfe found out over the weekend, nobody messes with Chelsea's family. The 85-pound dog showed her mettle when she took on an angry mama moose that had charged at Wolfe's boyfriend and his family — including two young children — while they were camping between Nederland and Ward. Wolfe, of Louisville, and her boyfriend, Jeremiah McLaughlin, of Boulder, were camping near Ruby Gulch. McLaughlin...

Hohm found the calf that survived, took a few photos with it, and sought help. “The camper called the sheriff and they called us, and our warden went up to euthanize the animal,” Montana FWP...

    Eureka! After about a century of research, Swiss scientists have finally cracked the mystery of the holes in Swiss cheese. Despite what you may have been told as a child, they are not caused by mice nibbling away inside cheese wheels. Experts from Agroscope, a state centre for agricultural research, said the phenomenon—which marks famous Swiss cheeses such as Emmental and Appenzell—was caused by tiny bits of hay present in the milk and not bacteria as previously thought. They found that the mystery holes in such cheeses became smaller or disappeared when milk used for cheese-making was extracted using modern...

    Critics of wind turbines argue vehemently that they are ugly and inefficient - a blot on the landscape and an expensive folly to boot. Efficiency has always been a strange critique given that the fuel driving turbines - wind - is free. And while electricity generated from wind may currently be more expensive than that from some fossil fuels, costs are coming down fast. Eye sores? That is simply a matter of opinion. But a new wave of turbine technologies are looking to end the debate once and for all, by making wind power cheaper, more flexible and, in...
