North Korean officials complain about salon owner’s poster mocking Kim Jong-un’s hairstyle

Posted By Staff

Date: April 16th, 2014

badLondon – A hairdresser in west London was confronted by two men claiming to be officials from the North Korean embassy earlier this month after putting up a promotional poster making light of dictator Kim Jong-un’s distinctive coiffure.

The trouble started when Mo Nabbach put up an image of Kim sporting a military salute, a grin on his face, and his trademark short-back-and-sides, long-in-the-middle look.

The poster’s lettering said, “Bad hair day? 15% off all gent cuts through the month of April. Tuesday-Thursday.”

 One day, Nabbach told the London Evening Standard, two men came by the shop window and began making photographs and taking notes. The men then entered the house and told Nabbach to take the poster down, claiming it was “disrespectful,” to their leader.  More

hinesFlorida – 30-year-old Christina Hines stopped by a gas station early Tuesday morning in Casselberry, Florida, but left a $50 bill on the counter when she exited the convenience store.

A clerk tried to give it back, but Ms. Hines was already driving away.

As it turned out, a Seminole County sheriff’s deputy had just arrived.

When he learned that the clerk was trying to give the woman back her $50, the deputy offered to go after the woman and return the money himself. As WKMG Local 6 reports, what should have been a simple, good deed wound up becoming a high-speed pursuit.

The   Orlando Sentinel reports that the deputy caught up with Ms. Hines, but before alerting her to his presence, he decided to check her tags. It was then that the deputy discovered Ms. Hines’ license had been suspended. He put on his lights and sirens and that’s when Ms. Hines sped off.  More

Sars Research Lab Loses 2,000 Tubes of Killer Virus

Posted By Staff

Date: April 15th, 2014

sarsFrance – A prestigious research institute in France said it had lost thousands of tubes of samples of the deadly Sars coronavirus.

A routine inventory check at Paris’ Pasteur Institute revealed that 2,349 tubes containing fragments of the virus responsible for the deaths of 774 people in 2002 were missing, the center named after French chemist Louis Pasteur said.

The institute was quick to reassure the public and said that the contents of the missing vials had no infectious potential. They contained only part of the virus and had no ability to spread.

“Independent experts referred by health authorities have qualified such potential as ‘non-existing’ according to the available evidence and literature on the survival of the Sars virus,” the institute said.  More

Posted By Staff

Date: April 15th, 2014

munichGermany – Leave it to the Germans to allow naked people to roam freely…but only in certain places.

So goes the general reaction in Europe these days to the news that the city of Munich has given enthusiastic approval to allowing naked people to stroll freely and to sunbathe in public spaces.

This doesn’t mean that just anybody who feels like taking his or her clothes off can strip down everywhere.

The city, according to the Atlantic Cities, has designated six official “Urban Naked Zones” in parks offering privacy, but also only minutes away from the busy city center.  More

father sonA Florida school board member wants parents who pick up their children to pick up their pants, too.

Rosalind Osgood, the Broward County board member, said enforcing any dress code inside the classroom is especially difficult when there are parents showing up at school dressed in hair curlers, pajamas and saggy pants that hang below the waist, The Sun Sentinel reported.

 She admits that there would be challenges enforcing such a dress code, but offered a few ideas that might help parents support the idea, like staging a fashion show.  More

Woman pregnant with other couple’s twins

Posted By Staff

Date: April 15th, 2014

romeA woman in Rome became pregnant with twins after undergoing fertility treatment—except the embryos she was implanted with weren’t those of her and her partner.

The woman wasn’t alerted to the issue until she was three months along. The AFP reports the switch somehow happened on Dec. 4 at the Sandro Pertini Hospital in Rome.

 Four couples received treatment that day, and it’s unclear whether any other improper pregnancies resulted.

There’s also no word on how the mix-up came to light, though Rome’s health authority said it learned there was “genetic incompatibility” between the parents and embryos on March 27.  More

Here’s Why the Nevada Rancher Refuses to Recognize Federal Authority

Posted By Staff

Date: April 14th, 2014

Cliven BundyNevada – Cliven Bundy, the last remaining rancher in Clark County, Nev., stands at the center of what has become a national controversy over the private use of federal land. He doesn’t believe the land belongs to the federal government.

“I think this is very clarifying to people,” Beck said. “Your stance is, ‘I do not recognize these lands to be federal … I am staking out my claim that the United States government does not have any jurisdiction, and any rights to the land that [I am] now grazing on.’”

“That’s right,” Bundy said. “It’s Nevada land.”

Bundy said he has “no contract with the United States government,” and the federal government has “no jurisdiction or authority” on his grazing rights, water rights, access rights, ranch improvement rights or anything else that “belongs to ‘we the people’ of Clark County.”

The rancher took his argument back to the 19th century, when Nevada became a state.  More   Ranch Rebellion Was Americans’ “Line in the Sand”   Nevada ranch standoff could leave dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation   Flashback: Sen. Reid Breaks Ground for Nevada Solar Farm Near Bundy Ranch

Dog Chosen for Jury Duty

dog juryNew Jersey – “It’s kinda strange.”

That was New Jersey resident Barrett Griner’s first thought when he checked his mail last week and found that one of the mail items from his local county clerk’s office was not for him; it was for his 5 year-old German Shepherd dog, IV.

“I got the mail and I look at it, and I’m like IV Griner, this is my dog’s name,” he said.

“I’m wondering like what is this? Something from the county office  about her vaccinations or something? Like why is my dog getting mail?”

The notice, addressed from the Cumberland County Clerk of Courts, was a juror summons for someone with the first name IV and the last name Griner; the exact name Barrett Griner IV says he legally gave to his dog.  More

swSACRAMENTO, California – A California-bound Southwest Airlines flight was diverted to Omaha on Sunday after witnesses said a passenger tried to open a door.

The captain of the Chicago-to-Sacramento flight landed on Eppley Airfield to “have an unruly passenger removed” before continuing on to Sacramento, the airlines said in a statement.

“Some gentleman just decided that he wanted us to visit the Lord today and … open up the back hatch while we were all already up in the air,” Monique Lawler told KABC-TV after reaching her final destination in Los Angeles.

She said the man acted strangely during the flight, and that at one point he came out of the bathroom soaking wet. She said when he went to the back of the cabin to try to pry open the door, a flight attendant screamed for help.  More

RUSSIAN FIGHTER JET BUZZES US NAVY WARSHIP

Posted By Staff

Date: April 14th, 2014

donald cookWASHINGTON DC – A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, U.S. military officials said Monday.

In the first public account of the incident, the officials said the Russian Fencer made 12 passes, and flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level.

The U.S. warship issued several radio queries and warnings using international emergency circuits, but the Russian aircraft did not respond.

“This provocative and unprofessional Russian action is inconsistent with international protocols and previous agreements on the professional interaction between our militaries,” said Army Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman.  More
