    Joann Davis had a moon rock. Yes, it was real. A gift, she said, from Neil Armstrong to her late husband. She also had an ill son and the Lake Elsinore resident wanted to help with his medical care. So she contacted NASA about her intention to sell it. That led to a nightmare situation on May 19, 2011, when Davis stood in the parking lot of a Denny’s restaurant in pants soaked in urine, answering questions from a federal agent about a rice-sized piece of moon. “He kept saying, ‘You will be going to federal court, you will be...

    President Trump has defeated Democrats in the intelligence community (IC) who were leaking classified information to the press. Such leaks have been a problem for many presidents, but Trump is the first who took a proactive approach and set up a sting operation that identified the leakers. It’s highly illegal to leak classified information. It’s also illegal to PUBLISH this information, but Trump is too smart to try and prosecute reporters. I thought that Trump would fire members of the IC until the leaks stopped, but the president solved the problem with a much more imaginative and deadly approach: He...

    The men come from any number of backgrounds and range from young to old. In the end, Pensacola police said, they were united by a common goal: having sex with minors. During a five-day stretch that ended Sunday, all 22 of the men — including a pastor from a Florida church — were dragged down by “Operation Undertow,” an Internet sting in which undercover agents lured suspected child predators via computer to an undisclosed Florida location, police said. The men were snagged after they responded to ads for sex with teenage males and females created by agents on “various websites,”...

    Weak fluorescent lights cast a sickly pall through the cheap motel room on Harbor Boulevard, where one undercover police officer shimmied into skin-tight leggings and another into stiletto heels. Both beds in room 320 were shoved against a wall to accommodate another dozen police officers, prosecutors and news types assembled for the sting. Requisite jokes were cracked about the quilted bedspreads – sit at your own risk – but a pair of heavy handcuffs on the desk belied any frivolity. Out on Harbor, an undercover Santa Ana police officer strutted in cheetah print and bed slippers. A fluorescent pink-orange brassiere...

    With his retirement rapidly approaching, Melrose Park Detective Gregory Salvi was looking to feather his nest. He moonlighted as a security guard to make a few extra bucks. But he also plotted to steal drugs and guns from the police department's evidence room, according to the FBI. He also schemed to steal a crate of more than 30 guns from the Melrose Park Police Department evidence room and sell them to one of the informants, the FBI said. “The pistols, as soon as the chief gives us OK to destroy them, then I can get 'em,” Salvi allegedly told the...
  • Climate change ‘making male bees more interested in sex than pollinating flowers’

    Anyone with a basic knowledge of how ecosystems work knows how important the role of the humble bee is. But a study suggests that climate change may be making male bees too easily distracted by females to bother carrying out pollination. According to research by the University of East Anglia, warmer springs have resulted in both bees and flowers emerging earlier than usual, meaning they do not coincide with each other. This means that by the time the flowers bloom, the bees are too busy mating with females to help fertilise plants. ‘Warming by as little as 2C causes the...
