    It was meant to be the ultimate symbol of menace: carving '666' into his forehead. But in a phenomenal case of idiocy, convicted murderer Nikko Jenkins used a mirror - so the numbers came out backwards. The symbol is described in the biblical book of Revelation as 'the sign of the beast', and has since been popularized by the horror movie The Omen. However, with a series of upside-down 9s, Jenkins has fashioned himself an entirely unique - and irreversible - engraving.

The Marines tested a small unmanned aircraft known as the Switchblade recently at Twentynine Palms, Calif., flying it directly at targets from both the ground and the back of the Osprey, a long-range aircraft that has rotors like a helicopter, but can fly like a plane once they rotate forward. They were “inert,” with no explosives on board, but the mission went off without a hitch, said Col. James Adams, commanding officer of Marine Aviation Weapons...

    More than 150 days ago, President Barack Obama nominated Loretta Lynch as the next U.S. attorney general following Eric Holder’s decision to step down. More than 48 days ago, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to confirm Lynch as the top law enforcement official in the nation. And yet, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., still refuses to schedule a vote. At a time when key issues important to the American people like protection of voting rights, law enforcement accountability/reform and oversight of numerous areas demand leadership, McConnell and many in his party are stalling.

    The breakthrough technology is a hybrid of semiconducting nanowires and bacteria that can take in carbon dioxide and use solar energy to convert it into pharmaceutical drugs, biodegradable plastics or liquid fuels. The U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California, Berkeley, developed the system. The hybrid system mimics natural photosynthesis, the process used by plants to take energy from sunlight and synthesize carbohydrates out of water and carbon dioxide. In the hybrid system, however, the CO2 and water are used to synthesis acetate, a basic building block for biosynthesis, the researchers explain.

Authorities say 44-year-old Scott Kemery poured rubbing alcohol on the bed bugs because he thought it would do the trick. Then, he lit a cigarette, setting himself and three cars on fire. "He said he had bedbugs in the car, and someone told him if he saturated them with alcohol, it would kill them," Det. Sgt. Edward Fitzgerald told Newsday. "So he went and bought some alcohol, he poured it all in there and he sat in his car and lit...

It is one of 30 archive films on the BBC’s website telling the history of the gay rights movement. The 30-minute documentary – Glad To Be Gay? – portrays Dunn as a legitimate gay rights activist and makes no reference to his role in setting up the reviled...

In short, explained Hellyer, it is a secret cabal’s stranglehold on the international banking system, humankind’s failure to adopt the technology available from extraterrestrial visitors, and to apply it to the climate crisis of global warming. “Most of us do not know what is going on,” Hellyer said. And the problem, he said, in the...

    A photograph that has posed a Civil War mystery, puzzling historians for three decades, appears to be a long-surviving hoax. The mysterious photograph of what appeared to be a far older photo — showing a figure in a coat and hat and the blurred image of a warship — surfaced in 1986. Some historians believed it might be a photo of the CSS Georgia, a Confederate ironclad that sank 150 years ago in Georgia as Union troops captured Savannah.

    Like similar biometric technologies — fingerprint or facial recognition systems — the Carnegie Mellon project uses mathematical pattern-recognition techniques. The technology captures images from a live photographic or video feed and runs them through a database to find a potential match. Like fingerprints, every iris is unique — thanks to enormously complex patterns that remain the same throughout a person’s lifetime. High-resolution cameras can capture images of the iris from a distance using light in the near-infrared wavelength band. In the realm of law enforcement, iris recognition could be used to identify suspects at long range in various lighting conditions....

  • Water Crisis:Hypothetical,Imagine Jerry Brown Asking Bordering States For Their "Extra Water".

    If the California Water Crisis keeps escalating, sooner or later the residents will only be allowed to flush their toilets once/twice a day.And that's if there is any water left in the sewer system. But can you just imagine if the day comes and Jerry gets desperate? What's he going to do? Ask the Governor of Oregon for his "Overflow Supply"?. The water crisis in California is a mirror image of what Obama has done to our economy. And all Obama can do is ask the Evil Rich to PAY MORE IN TAXES for the mess the Dem's created.

    Full title: "Sign honoring Navy SEAL who lost battle with ALS stolen from family’s Virginia Beach farm" Virginia Beach, Va. (WTKR) – A sign that honors a Navy SEAL who battled ALS has disappeared from his family’s Virginia Beach farm. The Frog Hollow sign hung outside the Oyer Family Farm since 2007, a nod to Mike Oyer’s Navy service. “We named the farm ‘Frog Hollow’ because he was a Navy Frogman” his widow Valerie Oyer told NewsChannel 3’s Todd Corillo Monday. The last time Oyer saw the sign, which hangs at the edge of her property on Morris Neck Road,...

    The day before he put a gun to his head and killed himself at an M Resort buffet on Easter, a Las Vegas man filled a box with his complaints against the resort and its employees and mailed it to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. In his final, angry message to the world, delivered to the newspaper Monday morning, John Noble blamed his suicide on depression that set in after the Henderson resort awarded him free meals at the buffet for life then banned him from the property in 2013 for harassing some of the women working there. “Today, I end...

    Now I have (and have had it for a while) a birdhouse right next to my back door. Early in the spring, I checked it -but nothing seemed to be happening. There was an old nest inside from last year when I had the privilege of watching a pair of chickadees raise there young one. About two or three weeks ago, I stepped outside about 2 AM just to see the weather, etc., and I heard a sound - it was like a buzzing. I realized it was coming from the birdhouse, and thought it might be wasps which I...

    The White House shared a photo of the Obama family on Easter Sunday as they posed in the Rose Garden in front of their Portuguese Water dogs. In the photo, Sasha and Malia wear sundresses and stand around their parents and pups, but a cute family photo wasn’t what some people saw. Critics thought the girls’ hemlines were way too short. When one commenter called them out for their short length, saying “very short skirts girl,” another disagreed and said it was acceptable. “Finger tip length? Hello!” Another said, “Love them all but I agree with everyone saying the girls’...
  • VIDEO BLOCKS of Reston Va: SCAM ALERT! Anyone heard of these people

    Just found a charge on my AMEX each month from a company called Video Blocks, of Reston Virginia. 79 bucks a month. I've no idea who these people are. Something to do as a download service. I've never heard of them. I called them of course, and their customer service center is a boiler room full of phonies handling complaints...I could hear other conversations in the back ground. They couldn't find me on their system, or tell me what I'm buying for 79 a month, or how long I've been a customer. Obviously a dodge. Anyone know anything?
