beeLOS ANGELES – Bumble Bee Foods and two managers were charged by Los Angeles prosecutors Monday with violating safety regulations in the death of a worker who was cooked in an industrial oven with tons of tuna.

Jose Melena was performing maintenance in a 35-foot-long oven at the company’s Santa Fe Springs plant before dawn Oct. 11, 2012, when a co-worker, who mistakenly believed Melena was in the bathroom, filled the pressure cooker with 12,000 pounds of canned tuna and it was turned on.

When a supervisor noticed Melena, 62, was missing, an announcement was made on the intercom and employees searched for him in the facility and parking lot, according to a report by the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health.

His body was found two hours later after the pressure cooker, which reached a temperature of 270 degrees, was turned off and opened.  More

fireBALTIMORE – National Guard troops fanned out through the city, shield-bearing police officers blocked the streets and firefighters doused still-simmering blazes early Tuesday as a growing area of Baltimore shuddered from riots following the funeral of a black man who died in police custody.

The violence that started in West Baltimore on Monday afternoon — within a mile of where Freddie Gray was arrested and placed into a police van earlier this month — had by midnight spread to East Baltimore and neighborhoods close to downtown and near the baseball stadium.

Police certainly had their work cut out for them: The rioters set police cars and buildings on fire in several neighborhoods, looted a mall and liquor stores and threw rocks at police with riot gear who responded occasionally with pepper spray.  More

watchesBoston – After her owners found watch pieces on the floor of their home, Mocha was rushed to the emergency room at Angell Animal Medical Center, according to a MSPCA statement.

Doctors did a three-hour endoscopic procedure so they could determine how many parts were in the 5-year-old Doberman’s stomach and how they could remove them.

They were able to remove some of the leather and then took a wait-and-see approach with the remaining parts.

“We basically allowed nature to take its course and, over a period of several days, Mocha eliminated another pound of broken leather straps, buckles and various other metal pieces,” says Dr. Zachary Crouse.  More

faceUK – A woman who had stars tattooed on her face says she has no choice other than to claim benefits worth £14,000-a-year because no one will employ her.

Kay Bennett, 33, from Swindon, says the tattoos, which were done when she was 24, have turned her into a jobless recluse.

‘Until they are removed, I won’t be able to find a job and will be stuck on benefits,’ says Miss Bennett, who resigned from her last role because she felt ‘left out’ by colleagues, and is now hoping someone will step forward and offer to pay for her to have laser removal.

‘I can’t afford to have it done but I’m absolutely desperate to get rid of them,’ says Miss Bennett, who claims she has applied for 40 jobs in the last year but without success.  More

Grandmother accused of wiping out girl’s $50,000 inheritance

colemanMilwaukee - Probate courts generate plenty of stories about bad guardians, people appointed by a court to look after a ward’s well-being or finances when they are too young or otherwise unable to take care of themselves. Then there’s Betty J. Coleman.

Prosecutors say she lied about her criminal past to be named guardian of her granddaughter’s suddenly flush estate. The girl, under 14 at the time, had been left $50,000 when Coleman’s ex-husband died.

Within five months, according to civil and criminal charges, Coleman had spent all the money, and not for the girl’s best interests. It went for alcohol, cigarettes, wigs, back rent and dozens of cash withdrawals.

Coleman, 56, even spent some of the money on her current husband — who is serving a prison sentence for sexually assaulting the same girl years earlier.  More

babyA Jewish family from north London is “still reeling” after Israeli counter-terrorism officers removed them from a Luton-bound plane at Tel Aviv because their 19-month-old child was crying.

Ariella and Mark Aziz were flying with Dutch airline Transavia on a chartered flight laid on for Pesach when their daughter, Sarina, became agitated when cabin crew requested she move from her allocated seat onto the lap of one of her parents for take-off.

As the plane set off towards the runway, following long delays, the family struggled to keep her in the connector belt provided for infants under the age of two, leading cabin crew to declare a “security incident”.

Despite the packed plane already being several hours late, the pilot turned round and returned to Ben-Gurion Airport, where armed police boarded the plane and removed the family.  More

Valdosta State University found itself mired in controversy when Air Force veteran Michelle Manhart took an American flag away from a group of student protesters trampling on it.

The university fueled the furor when it sided with the students, saying they had a constitutional right to trample the flag in a protest over racism.

Manhart was among the participants in the 90-minute afternoon rally, which took place after Valdosta canceled classes. The possibility of large numbers of people rallying on the outskirts of campus prompted the university to give students and staff the day off.  More

gunSouth Carolina – The union looking to organize workers at Boeing’s South Carolina plant has put its plans in a holding pattern, claiming workers are so opposed to signing up that they chased labor leaders off their porches at gunpoint.

The North Charleston plant, which opened in the right-to-work state four years ago and builds fuselages for 747s and 787s, employs about 7,500 workers.

The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers had been trying to build support for a vote this week on unionizing 3,175 production and maintenance workers, but called off the vote days before it was to happen.

South Carolina is one of 25 states with right-to-work laws, meaning workers at a unionized plant do not have to join the organization in order to work there.  More

lunchPIERCE COUNTY – A photo of a Pierce County Sheriff’s Deputy sharing his lunch with a homeless man was liked thousands of times on Facebook Wednesday, epitomizing what many are calling the good side of policing in the area.

The photo was first shared by Pierce County resident Darren Bigd Ballard Sr, who snapped the photo Wednesday.

Pierce County Sheriff’s Office Detective Ed Troyer later confirmed that it was indeed a sheriff’s deputy sharing his own lunch with a homeless person.

The deputy, who didn’t wish to be named, said he had encountered the man panhandling multiple times before near the intersection of 512 and Steele Street.  More

exerciseLONDON – A team of British cardiologists have said it’s time to “bust the myth” that regular exercise tackles obesity.

The strongly-worded editorial in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, published in the May edition of the journal, says you can’t outrun a bad diet and that although regular exercise reduces the risk of developing a number of health issues such as heart disease, dementia, some cancers and type 2 diabetes, it doesn’t promote weight loss.

Worldwide obesity has doubled since 1980, according to the World Health Organization, with 600 million people globally categorised as obese.

In the UK obesity affects one in four adults, according to the NHS.  More

Second ice cream company recalls products after positive listeria test

jeniWASHINGTON – A second ice cream company has recalled all of its products after health officials found listeria in a sample of its frozen treats.

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams of Ohio said on its website Thursday that it recalled its frozen products after the listeria discovery.

The action follows a similar recall by Texas-based Blue Bell Creameries Monday. Blue Bell’s ice cream was linked to 10 listeria illnesses in four states, including three deaths, and listeria was found in several of the company’s products.

The recalls are uncommon: Listeria isn’t usually found in ice cream, since the bacteria can’t grow at freezing temperatures.  More

Drought Drawing Rodents Into Homes During Breeding Season

Posted By Staff

Category: Animals, strange

ratCalifornia – The drought is forcing more rodents to search for water and food in California homes and neighborhoods.

Spring is already a busy time of the year for rats and mice since it’s breeding season, but dry conditions are forcing rodents to look for spaces as small as the width of a thumb to get inside homes.

Mice and rats need at least an ounce of water a day, so they’re targeting homes and backyards that aren’t protected.

They’re moving to homes where people might have pets or water features, bird baths, that sort of thing in search of water.  More

funeralBeijing – Chinese authorities on Thursday bared the details of their latest anti-vice sweep: a campaign to halt the hiring of strippers at funerals.

In a statement posted on its website, China’s Ministry of Culture pledged a “crackdown” on the practice, which it said has become increasingly common in rural areas.

“From time to time, ‘stripteases’ and other illegal performances have occurred in the countryside,” the statement said, adding that authorities will “promptly investigate and punish” businesses and individuals involved in the risque shows.

China’s official Xinhua news agency said such performances are typically organised in order to draw a larger crowd at last rites.  More
