    A few hours after the Minnesota Vikings reinstated running back Adrian Peterson, who was indicted in a child injury case in which he allegedly hit his 4-year-old son repeatedly with a tree branch, KHOU in Houston reported there was a separate incident last year in which Peterson allegedly hit his son and left a scar. KHOU in Houston said Peterson hit a different 4-year-old son last year, leaving a scar on the boy's forehead. That can be used as evidence in the current investigation, the report said. (Update: TMZ reported, citing sources, that the case "went nowhere" because he did...
  • Anyone ever had dogs & cats in your area acting like they're scared but you can't figure out why?

    Several people in my area have noted that their pets are acting weird. The behavior usually amounts to staring out windows and doors whining and shivering and hiding under tables and other furniture etc. . Or if they are outside they badly want inside even though they never do much any other time. They also keep tails tucked and sort of slink around like they are in distress. This is not one or two people but my count has over 20 different households within a ten mile radius that have pets acting in the same way for about 3 days...
  • The Untold Dangers of Ramen Noodles

    08/15/2014 3:53:45 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 84 replies
    In those moments of late-night cravings, Ramen Noodles seem to be your lifeblood -- the key to survival, exactly what you need to keep going. "Consistent quality and the finest of ingredients." But according to a new study -- they're killing you. OK, not necessarily, or not outright, but the research shows instant noodle products like Ramen can increase the risk of metabolic syndrome for women. And metabolic syndrome can mean increased risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes, according to the Mayo Clinic. The study found women who ate instant noodle products more than twice a week were the...

Burton Brink, the public information officer in La Crescenta, CA, posted a Tweet reminding people about the reasons for calling them for help. "#Facebook is not a Law Enforcement issue, please don't call us about it being down, we don't know when FB will be back up!" he wrote. Users who tried to get on Facebook around noon EST were greeted with an apology. "Sorry, something went wrong. We're working on getting this...

    Despite the fact they lack the physical adaptations of a climber, crocodiles can climb trees and do it regularly, a new study in Herpetology Notes finds. After studying five crocodilian species on Africa, Australia and North America, the team found that the reptiles can climb as high as six feet off the ground. Juveniles have been spotted as high as 30 feet. Combined with anecdotal evidence in these areas, the researchers found that the smaller crocodiles were able to vertically scale trees, while their larger counterparts relied on angled branches.

    Crews found a pickup truck stuck in a tree almost ten feet off the ground Sunday morning near Sherwood. Firefighters used thermal imaging to scan the truck at Highway 99 and Middleton Road and found it was empty. The details of how the truck got into the tree are a mystery to investigators. They were first alerted to the tree at 7:30 a.m. and called area hospitals, but no trauma patients came in overnight. PGE was at the scene due to safety concerns over power lines near the tree.
  • Will elephants still roam earth in 20 years?

    04/30/2013 8:42:17 AM PDT · by chessplayer · 74 replies
    (CNN) -- At the start of the 1980s there were more than a million elephants in Africa. During that decade, 600,000 were destroyed for ivory products. Today perhaps no more than 400,000 remain across the continent, according to Samuel Wasser of the University of Washington, who is widely recognized as an authority on the subject. If this level of killing continues, if elephants continue to be slaughtered for trinkets and statuettes, in 10 years' time most of Africa's elephants will be gone and an ineffable symbol of majesty and wonder -- and the linchpin in the ecology of an entire...

    An Indian stuntman attempting to break a world record by crossing a river on a zip-line -- while hanging by his ponytail -- died while performing the feat Sunday. Police officer Sailendra Nath Roy, 49, apparently had a heart attack as a result of zip-lining on a wire suspended nearly 600 feet in the air across the River Teesta in West Bengal, India, according to a Sky News report. Roy holds the Guinness World Record for covering the longest distance on a zip-line while hanging by his hair. Roy’s shoulder-length hair was attached to a pulley on a wire, and...

    Gingrich Daughter's Teen Work May Have Violated Law By Eve Tahmincioglu During the Republican presidential debate this week, Newt Gingrich shared a story about how his daughter worked as a church janitor when she was only 13. “I was actually proud of my clean bathrooms,” Jackie Gingrich Cushman said in an telephone interview Tuesday, referring to the janitorial job she held at the First Baptist Church in Carrollton, Ga., in the early 1980s. “I learned work has value.” But that work may have been a violation of federal child labor laws that her father has denounced as “stupid.” Cushman was...

    Israel can live with an Iranian nuclear bomb, head of the Israeli Space Agency Professor Yitzhak Ben Yisrael said on Wednesday in an interview with Globes. Speaking a day after the release of an IAEA report detailing Iran's efforts at weapons development, Ben Yisrael explained, "One nuclear bomb won't destroy a state, not even a neighborhood in Tel Aviv. An atomic bomb like the one the Iranians want to build has a radius of 500 meters of death and destruction, and 1,000 meters of lighter damage."

    A global nuclear disaster potentially worse than Chernobyl may be under way in Japan as hundreds of tonnes of highly radioactive spent nuclear fuel are open to the sky, and may be on fire and emitting radioactive particles into the atmosphere. Many countries have advised their citizens in Japan to leave the country. "This is uncharted territory. There is a 50-percent chance they could lose all six reactors and their storage pools," said Jan Beyea, a nuclear physicist with a New Jersey consulting firm called Consulting in the Public Interest. "I'm surprised the situation hasn't gotten worse faster... But without...

    Japan’s turbulent history of war and natural catastrophe has already given the world a terrifying vocabulary of death: tsunami, kamikaze, Hiroshima. But the country now stands on the brink of unleashing its most chilling phrase yet: genpatsu-shinsai – the combination of an earthquake and nuclear meltdown capable of destroying millions of lives and bringing a nation to its knees. The phrase, derived from the Japanese words for “nuclear power” and “quake disaster”, is the creation of Katsuhiko Ishibashi, Japan’s leading seismologist and one of the Government’s top advisers on nuclear-quake safety. He said that the world may never know how...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – A worst-case scenario devised by US researchers shows that the American southwest could experience a 60-year stretch of heat and drought unseen since the 12th century. Researchers at the University of Arizona examined studies of temperature changes and droughts in the region over the past 1,200 years and used them to project future climate models in the hope that water resource managers could use the information to plan ahead. An examination of the past, through human-kept records but also via rings in the cores of trees that can show periods of wetness or drought, showed that dry...

    David Letterman is not just wearing his political views on his sleeve, as a one of his shows production executives recently pointed out. Now he's allowing his show to be used as a platform for leading Democrats to advocate action on liberal causes. On Sept. 21, President Barack Obama appeared on CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman" and used his show to promote his health care/health insurance reform initiatives. But the very next night on Sept. 22, he had former President Bill Clinton on to publicize the efforts of the Clinton Global Initiative, one of which is to give aid...

    In my personal opinion, Obama is a disaster for America. I believe future historians will describe this period as the OBAMA CATASTROPHE - the time when America collectively lost its mind and voted for a man and a group of leftists who quickly destroyed the nation in favor of socialism and income redistribution. However, if people want to save the American nation and way of life - the best and most benevolent society in human history; opposition must be passionate and RATIONAL. The entire legitimacy or birther issue is indeed passionate but definitely not rational. It has been frustrating to...

If that's correct, we have a lot to be concerned about where the survival of the honeybee is concerned and beekeepers are sounding the alarm once again. Something is wrong, they're telling us. The...

    Do you think that the crash is over, as certain former bears do? This question arises as we have breached the first downside target, of Dow 7000, based on my proprietary investment value model that was first published in thestreet.com October 24, 2007. It was less a forecast than an evaluation. The Dow has now vindicated this model by reaching "fair value," as one would expect from a simple definition. Does that represent a base for a new bull market? Or is it just one more stop to the nether regions?

No airport operations were affected, said airport spokeswoman Barbara Gann. Lt. Beth Woodward, spokesman for the 388th Fighter Wing, would not say why Hill's runways were down, citing only "operational issues." Four of Hill's F-16 pilots were training with an F-16 jet from the Danish air force and planned to land at the air base at 4:45 p.m. because their fuel was running low, Woodward said. But...

    A study warns that the Earth's temperature is approaching a level not seen in a million years, implying that we are getting close to "dangerous" levels of human pollution. The study finds that, while the world warmed slowly during the century to 1975, it has warmed at a more rapid rate of about 0.2 degrees Celsius (0.36 degrees Fahrenheit) per decade thereafter. The researchers say the global mean temperature is now within one degree Celsius (1.8 degrees Fahrenheit) of the maximum mean temperature of the past million years. Based on a 0.2-degree-Celsius increase per decade, that high point could be...
