Hoax ‘swatting’ call sends dozens of cops to home

Posted By Staff

Date: April 23rd, 2014

swatingNew York – Dozens of heavily armed police officers descended on a home in Long Beach, Long Island, Tuesday afternoon thinking they might find a grisly murder scene.

Instead they found a terrified woman who had no clue what they were talking about and her teenaged son playing video games.

“We received a phone call from a gentleman who stated he had just shot his mother and his brother,” Long Beach Police Commissioner Michael Tangney said.

“Unfortunately, this is a terrible national problem for law enforcement. It’s called swatting.”

“When people playing a video game, if they lose they call the police and mimic the person that they lost to and say that they’ve killed family members and then they see how many people they can get to come down there,” Tangney said.  More

Man seeks to hide ‘murder’ tattoo before his murder trial

Posted By Staff

Date: April 23rd, 2014

chapmanGREAT BEND, Kansas – A Kansas man charged with first-degree murder is afraid the tattooed mirror-image letters spelling out the word “murder” across his neck might prejudice a jury, so he is asking for a professional tattoo artist to remove or cover it up.

Prosecutors say they aren’t opposed to Jeffrey Chapman covering his tattoo, but Barton County’s sheriff says he’s against transporting Chapman to a licensed tattoo facility — the only places tattoo artists are allowed to practice under Kansas law.

The Great Bend Tribune reports Chapman’s trial is scheduled to start Monday in the November 2011 killing of Damon Galliart, whose body was found by hunters in a roadside ditch southwest of Great Bend.  More

I love you to pieces

Posted By Staff

Date: April 22nd, 2014

puzzleUK – When Carly Rutter arrived home from holiday to have her boyfriend present her with a jigsaw of their faces, she was a little puzzled.

Six hours later, with the game still incomplete, her jet lag began to turn to irritation – especially when she realized partner Joe Boast had hidden the final pieces.

But as he handed them to her one by one and she fitted them together to spell out, ‘Carly Suzanna Rutter, I love you. Will you marry me?’ her bad mood quickly disappeared.

Now the couple, from St Neots, Cambridgeshire, have started planning for their big day.  More

Vertigo left one man spinning for months

Posted By Staff

Date: April 22nd, 2014

vertigoI was fine the night before. The little cold I’d had was gone, and I’d had the first good night’s sleep all week.

But when I woke up Friday morning at 6:15 and got out of bed, the world was whirling counterclockwise. I knocked against the bookcase, stumbled through the bathroom doorway and landed on my knees in front of the sink. It was as though I’d been tripped by a ghost lurking beside the bed.

Even when I was on all fours, the spinning didn’t stop. Lightheaded, reaching for solid support, I made it back to bed and, showing keen analytical insight, told my wife, Beverly, “Something’s wrong.”

The only way I could put on my shirt was to kneel on the floor first. I teetered when I rose. Trying to keep my head still, moving only my eyes, I could feel my back and shoulders tightening, forming a shell.

Everything was in motion, out of proportion, unstable. I barely made it downstairs for breakfast, clutching the banister, concentrating on each step and, when I finally made it to the kitchen, feeling too aswirl to eat anyway.  More

Obama will burn more than 35,000 gallons of fuel on Earth Day

Posted By Staff

Date: April 22nd, 2014

wavePresident Barack  Obama is marking the 44th Earth Day with a carbon-emitting extravaganza,  spending more than 15 hours on Air Force One and 15 minutes aboard the Marine  One helicopter.

Not including his  motorcades in Oso, Washington, the site of a recent devastating mudslide, his trip will consume an estimated 35,565 gallons of fuel.

According to the  U.S. Energy Information Administration, the statistics arm of the Department of  Energy, burning each gallon emits 21.1 pounds of carbon dioxide, bringing  the president’s Earth Day carbon footprint to more than 375.7 tons.

The White House  did not respond to a question about any measures it might be taking – planting  trees, for instance – to offset those emissions.  More

Date: April 22nd, 2014

Beulah ToombsMILFORD, Ohio – An 89-year-old  Ohio grandmother has decided that she would rather give up her apartment than  give up cigarettes.

Beulah Toombs was given the opportunity to quit smoking when her apartment  building in Milford went smoke-free a little more than a year ago.

Management asked her to quit one more time — Toombs declined.

“I don’t think  so,” she said in an interview with Cincinnati.com. “This is my home, and I think  you can do whatever you want to in your home.”  More
