daniel catsBOCA RATON, Florida – A man in South Florida stopped in the middle of being chased by police Friday to ask for water and pet some cats.

Authorities said Daniel Pinedo-Velapatino, 21, had stolen thousands in cash from his friend’s wallet after a night of drug use. He then crashed a Lexus into multiple vehicles — including a police cruiser — and a fire hydrant before ditching the car.

Officers from Boca Raton and Delray Beach were pursuing Velapatino on foot when he showed up at Candice Noonan’s back sliding glass door.

“I said, ‘Excuse me, can I help you?’” Noonan told WPBF. “He said, ‘Oh, I’m so sorry. Next door, I’m mowing the lawn. Do you mind if I have a glass of water?’”

When Noonan returned with a bottle of water, she found the supposed landscaper inside her house, lying on the floor petting her cats, which she described as “very odd.”  More

eberhartFAIRBANKS, Alaska – The city of Fairbanks has so far spent about $7,000 appealing a $37.50 elections fine leveled on the mayor.

The Alaska Public Offices Commission ordered City Mayor John Eberhart to pay the $37.50 fine in May after concluding he broke a state election law in the October 2013 election by sending an email on his city council email account.

In the eyes of the commission, the records request equaled an illegal use of municipal resources to influence an election.  More

Posted By Staff

Date: September 2nd, 2014

fastNEW YORK – McDonald’s, Wendy’s and other fast-food restaurants are expected to be targeted with acts of civil disobedience that could lead to arrests Thursday as labor organizers escalate their campaign to unionize the industry’s workers.

Kendall Fells, an organizing director for Fast Food Forward, said in an interview that workers in a couple of dozen cities were trained to peacefully engage in civil disobedience ahead of this week’s planned protests.

Fells declined to say what exactly is in store for the protests in around 150 U.S. cities. But workers involved in the movement recently cited sit-ins as an example of strategies they could use to intensify their push for higher pay and unionization. Past protests have targeted a couple of restaurants in each city.  More

cricketUSA – A cricket with a voracious appetite for anything — including members of its own species — is now spreading across the eastern United States with no end to the invasion in sight.

The invader, known as the greenhouse camel cricket (Diestrammena asynamora).

She was inspired to study the cricket after a colleague experienced a chance encounter with one at home. The cricket was previously known to science, but thought to be prevalent only in its native Asia.  More

skidCOLCHESTER, Vermont – It was a joy ride that ended with 2 people facing some serious charges. The theft of some construction vehicles caused chaos on the Interstate this weekend.

Their top speed is around 10 miles per hour, but for two thieves, that didn’t stop them from trying to make a run for it on a skid-steer from Beauregard Equipment in Colchester on Sunday.

“That skid-steer actually became disabled when the track was dislodged,” said Colchester Police Cpl. Francis Gonyaw.

The machine ended up rolling backwards into a ditch, but investigators say that did not stop 17-year-old Dustin Francis and 20-year-old Cody Crary. That’s when they allegedly went for two more skid-steers.  More

boarGermany – Twenty-eight years after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, its effects are still being felt as far away as Germany in the form of radioactive wild boars.

Wild boars still roam the forests of Germany, where they are hunted for their meat, which is sold as a delicacy.

But in recent tests by the state government of Saxony, more than one in three boars were found to give off such high levels of radiation that they are unfit for human consumption.

Outside the hunting community, wild boar are seen as a menace by much of Germany society. Autobahns have to be closed when boar wander onto them, they sometimes enter towns and, in a famous case in 2010, a pack attacked a man in a wheelchair in Berlin.  More

127-year-old said to be ‘the oldest person to ever live’

oldestMexico – When Leandra Becerra Lumbreras was born, the dust had still not settled on the Civil War, Teddy Roosevelt was a little-known cowboy in the Dakotas, and no one had ever heard of radio, basketball or the airplane.

Dwight Eisenhower, Amelia Earhart, Babe Ruth and Adolph Hitler were not even alive when Lumbreras arrived on Aug. 31, 1887, in a small Mexican village.

Yet through World War I, World War II, the Mexican Revolution, the Cold War and the Internet Age, Lumbreras has survived — reaching the ripe old age of 127 to become unofficially the oldest person who has ever lived, her family says.

Though her birth certificate was destroyed about 40 years ago, Lumbreras’ kin say her birth date has been documented and certified by judges following a probe conducted by the Mexican state of Tamaulipas.  More

The bearded, snarling mascot with a large hooked nose who wears a head scarf did not appear at Coachella Valley High School’s season opening football game on Friday. A belly-dancing genie that often appears with the mascot during halftime was also retired.

The Arab mascot has existed since the 1920s to recognize the desert region’s reliance on date farming, a traditionally Middle Eastern crop.

Over the years, the mascot evolved from a turban-wearing horseman carrying a lance to a standing figure with a scowl and a traditional head covering.  More

Girl, 5, sent home from kindergarten with facial injuries blaming classmates

Posted By Staff

Date: August 31st, 2014

avaMississippi – A Mississippi mother has launched an online campaign for justice after her little girl was allegedly severely beaten in a vicious playground attack last week.

Disturbing images posted to the ‘Justice for AvaLynn’ Facebook page by mother Lacey Harris reveal the kindergarten student’s bruising injuries, which her school claims happened when the five-year-old fell over.

Harris refutes the official explanation from Arlington Elementary School and says that she wants a police investigation because her child’s injuries are simply too severe to have been caused by a fall.

‘AvaLynn informed Lacey that she was assaulted by another student: that she was kicked repeatedly in the face until she fell off of the slide on the school’s playground.

The school informed Lacey were no teachers present when the incident occurred, and because of that, no one could prove whether or not another student had harmed Ava,’ the post reads.  More

Whole Foods sued for ‘understating’ amount of sugar in yogurt

Posted By Staff

Date: August 30th, 2014

365Customers are suing Whole Foods Market for “vastly understating” the amount of sugar in its store-brand yogurt.

A class-action lawsuit filed Friday in Manhattan federal court cites six tests by Consumer Reports in a July report on the supermarket chain’s Whole Foods 365 Everyday Value Plain Greek Yogurt, revealing it actually contains 11.4 grams of sugar per 170-gram serving instead of the 2 grams listed on the label.

“Defendant’s act in vastly understating the sugar content .?.?. is not harmless trivia,” the suit says. “For many members of the class, sugar content is an important component of their diet.”

The suit, involving about 100 plaintiffs, alleges that competing Greek yogurts typically contain 5 to 10 grams of sugar and that no yogurt on the market can claim 2 grams of sugar because even unsweetened yogurt naturally contains more than 2 grams of sugar lactose.  More

“The entire rest of the day all I heard about was how hungry everyone was,” she said. “I then became very concerned about what would happen if this continued every day throughout the school year.”

Found: The Islamic State’s Terror Laptop of Doom Buried in a Dell computer captured in Syria are lessons for making bubonic plague bombs

lapANTAKYA, Turkey – Abu Ali, a commander of a moderate Syrian rebel group in northern Syria, proudly shows a black laptop partly covered in dust. “We took it this year from an ISIS hideout,” he says.

Abu Ali says the fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), which have since rebranded themselves as the Islamic State, all fled before he and his men attacked the building.

The attack occurred in January in a village in the Syrian province of Idlib, close to the border with Turkey, as part of a larger anti-ISIS offensive occurring at the time.
