  • Bill Cosby's wife files emergency motion to delay deposition

    SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Lawyers for Bill Cosby's wife have filed an emergency motion to postpone her deposition while she appeals a magistrate judge's order. The motion filed late Saturday says the 71-year-old Camille Cosby's deposition scheduled for Monday should be delayed because she "has had no involvement with the facts or allegations underlying this case." It argues that her public testimony would create "an unnecessary media circus and personal security threat that serves no purpose other than to harass and embarrass her."

    Another year passes. Another 365 planetary spins completed (14.6 million kilometers of combined distance traveled if you live at the Earth's equator), and another journey of 940 million kilometers around the Sun. Time is marked off for us by a largely predictable, if not tedious, set of cycles. Except, this is by no means all the cosmic traveling we've done in the last 31.5 million seconds. For one thing, the solar system is not at rest with respect to its host galaxy. The Sun and its planetary entourage are moving in an orbital path within the Milky Way. The generally...

    WASHINGTON — Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.'s bid to seal parts of soon-to-be-filed court papers containing sensitive details about his medical condition was denied Tuesday, though the judge said the ex-lawmaker may ask again when the papers actually are filed. **SNIP** But Judge Jackson, citing local court rules governing criminal cases, denied the motion without prejudice, meaning he may make his request again. She said that without the actual memorandum she could not "make a reasoned judgment about the necessity for the order." She said Jackson could file the sentencing memorandum with an accompanying motion to seal and that it...

    A 30-second video of a newborn baby shows the infant silently snoozing in its crib, his breathing barely perceptible. But when the video is run through an algorithm that can amplify both movement and color, the baby’s face blinks crimson with each tiny heartbeat. The amplification process is called Eulerian Video Magnification, and is the brainchild of a team of scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. The team originally developed the program to monitor neonatal babies without making physical contact. But they quickly learned that the algorithm can be applied to other videos...

    The House on Friday morning rejected a Democratic resolution citing House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) for running a biased investigation against Attorney General Eric Holder, and for conducting a "witch-hunt" against Holder. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) brought up the resolution saying Issa's investigation "discredits the integrity of the House," after which Republicans quickly made a motion to table the resolution. That GOP motion was approved on a 259-161 vote. More than 20 Democrats voted with Republicans.
  • Motion Induced Blindness (Why you should scan, NOT stare when driving or piloting.)

    An excellent demonstration of the phenomenom. Applies to walking, driving, sailing, flying, hunting, biking, skiing, and so many other activities of daily life. Applies to everyone, not just pilots, as we all spend time driving at night and the same concepts apply here! Scan, scan, scan... For all you pilots and drivers, here is an interesting phenomenon. This is why you have to scan a scene to see all of its detail instead of just staring at a part of it. It works exactly like it says, and is one major reason people in cars can 'look right at you'...

However, the defense has a good faith belief that Mr. Rezko, President Obama’s former friend, fund-raiser, and neighbor told the FBI and the United States Attorneys a different story about President Obama. In a recent in camera proceeding, the government tendered a three paragraph letter indicating that Rezko “has stated in interviews with the government that he engaged in election law violations by personally contributing a large sum of cash to the campaign of a public official who is not Rod Blagojevich. … Further, the public official denies being aware of cash contributions to his campaign by Rezko or...

    MIAMI - A federal judge refused Tuesday to acquit Jose Padilla and two co-defendants on terrorism support charges, clearing the way for defense lawyers to begin presenting their case this week. U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke, ruling after a daylong hearing, said the evidence and testimony offered by the prosecuton over the past nine weeks was enough proof to let a jury decide the men's guilt or innocence. "That is something the jurors will have to find," Cooke said. The trial is expected to last well into August. Padilla, Adham Amin Hassoun and Kifah Wael Jayyousi face possible life in...

    'Slow motion' marathon runner Greg Billingham has finished the London Marathon one week after the event started. Thirty-nine-year-old Billingham decided to "run" the 42-kilometre event at an ultra-slow pace of 4.8 kilometres every 10 hours, to raise money for the charity Children with Leukaemia. He said he ran in slow motion because people who become ill often find their lives slowed down. Billingham, who had never run a marathon before, hopes to have raised between 30,000 and 40,000 pounds for the charity. "At first people look at you strangely... People weren't too sure whether it was a joke," he said....

    I've tried searching Google multiple times, and I guess I'm not using the right words, because I can't seem to find the answer I'm looking for. I turn to you (all) for wisdom. I have two floodlights (same electrical circuit) on the back of my house that I have added motion sensors to for security. (My house backs up to the woods). The problem I'm having is that even though they have their own sensor, when one gets tripped (on), so does the other, and then they both stay on. I am sure that the surge created when one goes...

    Overview To better understand the distribution of shaking and damage that accompanied the great 1906 earthquake, seismologists have constructed new computer models to recreate the ground motions. The simulations show how ground moved on the two sides of the San Andreas fault and how seismic waves radiated away from the fault to produce the shaking. The earthquake, which began 2 miles offshore from the City of San Francisco, ultimately grew to cause shaking and damage along more than 300 miles of the San Andreas Fault. The movies and snapshots available here portray the shaking over a 155 mile by 70...

    AUSTIN, Texas - The state's highest criminal court has asked prosecutors to respond to former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's request that the charges against him be dismissed. The all-Republican appeals court on Tuesday gave prosecutors a week to submit arguments regarding the request filed Friday by DeLay attorney Dick DeGuerin. The court will decide whether to take the case after the prosecutors' response is received. DeLay spokesman Kevin Madden issued a statement Tuesday night saying the court had agreed to hear the case. A court official said Wednesday that was incorrect. The court's order had noted DeLay has filed...

    VIENNA, Austria - The European Union submitted a motion Friday to the U.N. atomic watchdog agency that sets Iran up for referral to the Security Council later this year unless Tehran halts some of its nuclear activities. Diplomats earlier said a watered-down text was likely to get Russia's support, but the motion contained a direct reference to the Security Council and held out the likelihood of referral in the coming months. Iran increased the pressure against referral to the Security Council, diplomats told The Associated Press, threatening to restart uranium enrichment — a possible pathway to nuclear arms. The diplomats,...

    On May 16, a judge in Placer County, Calif., refused to hear a motion by medical marijuana patient Steve Kubby -- who believes he can establish compelling evidence that county authorities committed fraud in 1999 to obtain a search warrant against him. Kubby, the Libertarian Party's candidate for California governor in 1998, has lived in Canada with his wife, Michele, since he was convicted in December 2000 for drug law violations in Placer County. He used -- and still uses -- marijuana to control the symptoms of adrenal cancer, which he fought with surgery and conventional medicine before discovering that...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - A federal judge has allowed the county to continue with its plans to close the trauma center at Martin Luther King Jr./Drew Medical Center by denying a temporary restraining order sought by doctors and residents. The motion by Friends of King/Drew argued that the court needed to intervene immediately so community members would not be deprived of emergency medical services. The court filing rejected Thursday is part of a civil rights lawsuit alleging that closing the trauma unit would have a disproportionate affect South Los Angeles residents. Health department officials have said they need to close...

I propose a nonbinding resolution that any post of CBS material not verified by a legitimate news source should not be posted under breaking/news CBS certainly is "breaking", but that's not really "news" Does anyone wish to second the motion?

    Motion can be conjured out of thin air, according to a physicist in Israel. Alexander Feigel of the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot says that objects can achieve speeds of several centimetres an hour by getting a push from the empty space of a vacuum1. No one has yet measured anything being set in motion by emptiness. But Feigel thinks it should theoretically be possible to make use of the effect to shunt tiny amounts of liquids around on a lab chip, for example. Such small-scale experiments could be useful for chemists interested in testing thousands of different drugs...

A lawyer for Judicial Watch, a public interest group that filed the lawsuit on behalf of three small investors, said the company tried to polish its financial reports beginning in 1998 by booking revenue on cost overruns before it was certain of getting paid. Halliburton shares dropped sharply when the...
