Malaysia Airlines is a flying ghost town

Posted By Staff

Date: August 26th, 2014

maMalaysia Airlines flights have transformed into mile-high ghost towns as pictures posted to social media depict a barren scene of near-empty planes and desolate terminals.

Photos of abandoned seats and deserted waiting areas come as the international airline continues to lose overwhelming amounts of money daily while it recovers from the downing of flight MH17 and the disappearance of flight MH370.

The decrease in travelers is so bad that the airline is attempting to lure back passengers in Australia by nearly doubling the amount of commission it offers to travel agents from 6 percent to 11 percent, according to News.com.au.

“The southeast Asia air carrier burns its cash reserves at nearly $2.16 million each day,” Howard University professor Oliver McGee, an expert on transportation, wrote on Linkedin.  More

aliceDENVER – A Denver family is angry at an airline they say lost their diabetic and slightly forgetful mother.

The recent trip to the East Coast for Alice Vaticano, 85, to visit her daughter turned into a bit of a marathon.

She says her daughter took her to the Newark Airport, where a skycap promised to wheel her directly to her gate. Her daughter didn’t obtain clearance to go to the concourse with her.

But somehow Vaticano got parked and forgotten.

“She pushed me there and left me,” Vaticano said. “I was just sitting all day in a wheelchair.”  More

udenCHEYENNE, Wyoming – A judge in Wyoming sentenced a 75-year-old Missouri woman to life in prison on Monday for killing her husband with a rifle in the mid-1970s then throwing his body down the shaft of an abandoned gold mine where it remained for nearly 40 years.

Defendant Alice Uden wore wire glasses, a court-supplied hearing aid and a blue suit, and sat quietly in her wheelchair before speaking at the hearing.

The shooting happened at the couple’s home in Cheyenne in late 1974 or early 1975. Uden testified she shot Holtz with a rifle next to the girl’s bed.  More

shawCalifornia – University of Southern California senior cornerback Joshua Shaw likely won’t play in the Trojans’ season opener Saturday against Fresno State, but he’s already being hailed by his coach as a hero after spraining both his ankles jumping off a second-story balcony to rescue his 7-year-old nephew from drowning.

The school said the incident occurred Saturday evening, when Shaw was attending a family party at his cousin’s apartment in Palmdale, Calif.

At one point, Shaw saw his nephew Carter, who cannot swim, struggling in the apartment complex’s pool.

With no one else nearby, Shaw jumped off the balcony onto the concrete below. Despite the pain, USC said Shaw was able to crawl into the pool and pull his nephew to safety before maneuvering himself out of the water.  More  Update: So That USC Player Who Jumped Off a Balcony to Save His Nephew?

Cambodian rat meat – A growing export market

Posted By Staff

Date: August 25th, 2014

ratCambodia – Rice field rats are considered a delicacy in Cambodia

A unique harvest is under way in the rice fields of Cambodia where tens of thousands of wild rats are being trapped alive each day to feed a growing export market for the meat of rural rodents.

Popularly considered a disease-carrying nuisance in many societies, the rice field rats, Rattus argentiventer, of this small South-East Asian nation are considered a healthy delicacy due to their free-range lifestyle and largely organic diet.

Rat-catching season reaches its height after the rice harvest in June and July when rats have little to eat in this part of rural Kompong Cham province, some 60km from the capital Phnom Penh.  More

Burglar swipes device that controls prosthetic hand of triple-amputee veteran

Posted By Staff

Date: August 25th, 2014

benA Texas veteran who lost both legs and much of his right arm to an IED in Afghanistan was left to relive his experience when a heartless thief stole the device he uses to control his prosthetic right hand last week.

U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Ben Eberle, 27, told the San Antonio Express-News he left the device in the center console of his pickup truck overnight and awoke Friday to find the driver’s side door window smashed and the critical device gone.

The iPod Touch has an application called i-limb, which Eberle uses to achieve hand movements he otherwise could not due to extensive nerve damage.

Because Eberle’s prosthetic hand is programmed to only work with the stolen iPod, and vice versa, he will have to replace both, he told the newspaper.

“That takes a long time,” Eberle said. “It’s tedious and it’s a lot of work with the hand itself.”  More

Vermont diner takes down bacon sign after it offends Muslims

Posted By Staff

Date: August 25th, 2014

bacon1Vermont – The Sneakers Bistro got its pick of a sign to stake into a prime traffic median along Winooski’s Main Street after dolling up the bed with annual flowers for the city of Winooski’s “Operation Bloom” volunteer program.

The sign that read “YIELD FOR BACON” was installed in June, according to a cached Facebook post, but it wasn’t until August that a Muslim resident of Winooski claimed the sign was insensitive to those who do not consume pork.

The restaurant owners, who have not been identified, contacted the woman who complained and took the sign down out of respect on Friday.

The backlash, however, continued over the weekend and led to the takedown of its Facebook page and even Yelp reviews.  More

Chicago crime rate drops as concealed carry applications surge

Posted By Staff

Date: August 25th, 2014

chlIllinois – An 86-year-old Illinois man with a concealed carry permit fired his weapon at an armed robbery suspect fleeing police last month, stopping the man in his tracks and allowing the police to make an arrest.

Law enforcement authorities described the man as “a model citizen” who “helped others avoid being victims” at an AT&T store outside Chicago where he witnessed the holdup. The man, whose identity was withheld from the press, prevented others from entering the store during the theft.

Police said the robber harassed customers and pistol-whipped one.

Since Illinois started granting concealed carry permits this year, the number of robberies that have led to arrests in Chicago has declined 20 percent from last year, according to police department statistics.  More

Pediatricians’ group says school should start no earlier than 8:30 a.m.

Posted By Staff

Date: August 25th, 2014

sleepCHICAGO – Pediatricians have a new prescription for schools: later start times for teens.

Delaying the start of the school day until at least 8:30 a.m. would help curb their lack of sleep, which has been linked with poor health, bad grades, car crashes and other problems, the American Academy of Pediatrics says in a new policy.

The influential group says teens are especially at risk; for them, “chronic sleep loss has increasingly become the norm.”

More than 40 percent of the nation’s public high schools start classes before 8 a.m., according to government data cited in the policy. And even when the buzzer rings at 8 a.m., school bus pickup times typically mean kids have to get up before dawn if they want that ride.  More

New York’s worst inmates are living like kings – Silence of the Lambs Unit

Posted By Staff

Date: August 25th, 2014

manhattanNew York – The “worst of the worst” prisoners in the city’s jails are living like kings — while correction officers are reduced to being their personal servants, The Post has learned.

Nearly two dozen prisoners get to kick back all day and watch TV and play chess in a little-known section of the Manhattan Detention Complex dubbed the “Silence of the Lambs” unit by guards — and the “VIP Room” by the inmates, correction sources said.

The guards are forced to wait on the violent prisoners hand and foot because the inmates are not allowed to walk around without officer escorts in the ninth-floor unit, which is officially called “9?South,” the sources said.

And the inmates take full advantage of their situation, demanding that coffee be served to them piping hot — sending it back when it’s lukewarm.  More

Egyptian cleric: Men allowed to spy on women in the shower if they have ‘pure intentions’

peepEgypt – Men can spy on women in the shower, an extremist cleric has argued in Egypt, prompting outrage from other Islamic scholars.

According to Osama al-Qusi, a Salafist or ultra orthodox preacher, peeping toms can watch a woman wash as long as they are interested in marrying her.

“If you were really honest and wanted to marry that woman, and you were able to hide and watch her in secret, and see the things that she wouldn’t usually let you see before marrying her, then it is acceptable as long as your intentions are pure,” Qusi said in an online video translated by the al-Arabiya news network.

Qusi’s words sparked heavy criticism from those who said he was using religion to win attention.  More

A lucky New Hampshire couple will return from their Vegas vacation this weekend with an extra $2.4 million in their bank account after hitting the jackpot at the MGM Grand’s “Lion’s Share” slot machine.

The machine, the last of 50 that were unveiled when the casino opened in 1993, became famous for never paying out a jackpot, though small hits on a $3 maximum bet could earn a player as much as $10,000.

The Las Vegas Sun reported that Walter and Linda Misco of Chester, N.H. had inserted $100 into the machine and had been playing $3 maximum bets for approximately five minutes when the three green lion emblems lined up perfectly along the center pay line.  More

This is the stark warning made by Amsterdam-based engineer Nell Watson (picture), who believes droids could kill humans out of both malice and kindness.

Teaching machines to be kind is not enough, she says, as robots could decide that the greatest compassion to humans as a race is to get rid of everyone to end suffering.

Museum spokesman Kuzma Boholyubov told local media: “It is really galling because it probably only cost pennies for the small amount of nail varnish that was used, but it’s going to cost a small fortune to clean it all off.

“The minimum charge from professional restorers is 2.5 million rubles. But it could be much higher depending of the type of nail varnish that the vandals used.”  More

Richard KirkDENVER – A judge has ruled there is enough evidence for a man accused of killing his wife in Denver’s Observatory Park neighborhood to stand trial. The preliminary hearing for Richard Kirk was Friday afternoon.

The judge said that her husband, Richard, was able to go to a safe, remember the combination and grab a gun. She said for those reasons, a jury should decide his fate.

Police have said Kristine, 44, pleaded in the 911 call for authorities to hurry and send officers because her husband had asked her to get a gun and shoot him.  More
