Posted By Staff

duck attackWashington – A Washougal woman is suing the owner of a pet duck in Estacada, Ore.

Cynthia Ruddell claims Lolita Rose’s duck attacked her after it wandered down the street.  Ruddell’s attorney, Gregory Price, told KATU, “… The duck flapped its wings at her and knocked her back and she fell down on an outstretched hand and fractured her wrist in two spots.”

The incident happened May 7, 2012. Ruddell broke her right wrist, sprained or strained her elbow and shoulder, and suffered a rotator cuff injury.

The lawsuit claims Rose knew the duck had, “Abnormally dangerous propensities in attacking people.”

Rose is accused of “needlessly endangering the public” because she didn’t keep the duck contained and didn’t warn neighbors about the danger.  More

Cheerleaders sue over pay, say they were subjected to ‘jiggle test’

Posted By Staff

Date: April 23rd, 2014

Minnesota Vikings v Cincinnati BengalsBUFFALO, New York - Five former Buffalo Bills cheerleaders on Tuesday sued the team over a pay system they say had them working hundreds of hours for free at games and at mandatory public appearances at which they were subjected to groping and sexual comments, and one said they had to take a jiggle test so their boss could see how firm their bodies were.

The state Supreme Court lawsuit is the third filed this year against a National Football League team by cheerleaders.

The Oakland Raiders and Cincinnati Bengals also have pending wage battles.

The cheerleaders are identified only by their first names and last initials in the lawsuit, which cites a provision that allows plaintiffs to remain anonymous “where identification poses a risk of retaliatory physical or mental harm.”  More

Soldier convicted in WikiLeaks case gets new name

Posted By Staff

Date: April 23rd, 2014

ChelseaLEAVENWORTH, Kansas – An Army private convicted of leaking classified documents to WikiLeaks won an initial victory Wednesday to living as a woman when a Kansas judge granted a petition to change her name to Chelsea Elizabeth Manning.

The decision clears the way for official changes to Manning’s military records, but does not compel the military to treat the soldier previously known as Bradley Edward Manning as a woman.

That includes not being moved from the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth, where Manning is serving a 35-year prison sentence, to a prison with a woman’s unit, or receiving the counseling and hormone treatment she seeks.

Manning wasn’t present at the hearing before Leavenworth County District Judge David King, which lasted just about a minute, but issued a statement after the ruling calling it “an exciting day.”  More

TSA Reaches Settlement In Breast Milk Lawsuit

Posted By Staff

Date: April 23rd, 2014

StaceyLOS ANGELES – The United States Transportation Security Administration has reached a tentative settlement in the highly publicized lawsuit filed by a mother who was allegedly harassed by TSA officers when she requested her breast milk not be x-rayed, authorities announced Tuesday.

The TSA again apologizes to Stacey Armato for the incident that took place at the Phoenix Airport on Jan. 25, 2010 and also agreed to clarify its internal procedures for screening breast milk in the tentative deal.

“We brought this lawsuit for one reason — to bring clarity and policy change for breastfeeding mothers traveling with breast milk,” Armato said. “Hopefully what I experienced at the Phoenix Airport in 2010 will never happen to another mother traveling with her breast milk.”

TSA is expected to update its public website to better guide breastfeeding mothers traveling with breast milk and train its screening officers on the new policies if the agreement is finalized.  More

Fines for poor aim in public toilets

Posted By Staff

Date: April 23rd, 2014

toilet policeChina – People with a poor aim are to be fined if they miss their mark when using public toilets in the Chinese city of Shenzen, provoking online derision over how the rule will be enforced.

The penalty will apply to those who urinate outside the bowl of facilities in the southern boom town neighboring Hong Kong.

Draft regulations reportedly don’t specify a minimum quantity of spillage required to be classed as a violation.

“Such uncouth use of a public toilet will be fined 100 Yuan ($16) by authorities” from next month, a city government official told AFP news agency.

Users of China’s Weibo social networks poured scorn on the measures, raising the prospect of hordes of toilet inspectors being deployed to inspect performance.  More

Man among first in US to receive ‘bionic eye’

Posted By Staff

Date: April 23rd, 2014

bionicANN ARBOR, Michigan – A degenerative eye disease slowly robbed Roger Pontz of his vision.

Diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa as a teenager, Pontz has been almost completely blind for years.

Now, thanks to a high-tech procedure that involved the surgical implantation of a “bionic eye,” he’s regained enough of his eyesight to catch small glimpses of his wife, grandson and cat.

“It’s awesome. It’s exciting — seeing something new every day,” Pontz said during a recent appointment at the University of Michigan Kellogg Eye Center.

The 55-year-old former competitive weightlifter and factory worker is one of four people in the U.S. to receive an artificial retina since the Food and Drug Administration signed off on its use last year.  More

Posted By Staff

Date: April 23rd, 2014

portaST. CLAIR SHORES – An autopsy is planned for an elderly man who was found dead inside a portable toilet that he might have been living in for months.

High Cigarette Taxes Turning Smokers Into Smugglers

Posted By Staff

Date: April 23rd, 2014

cig taxThe conclusion from a recently released report on cigarette taxes and cigarette smuggling from the Tax Foundation may sound obvious.

The Washington, D.C.-based think tank found that when states impose high excise taxes on cigarettes, smokers tend to avoid buying cigarettes there.

Instead, they buy them in low-tax states — smuggling their smoky contraband across state lines.

At $4.35 a pack, New York levies the highest excise tax on cigarettes in the land. It has nearly tripled the size of its excise since 2006 and now boasts an excise tax almost precisely three times the national average ($1.46 a pack).

The result: the majority of cigarettes smoked in New York are contraband. According to the study’s data (which goes through 2012, the most recent year for which complete data are available), 56.9 percent of New York’s cigarettes were smuggled into the state, dodging New York excise taxes.  More

Teen Had Loaded Revolver In Her Vagina

Posted By Staff

Date: April 23rd, 2014

archerTennessee – A 19-year-old Tennessee woman had a loaded handgun hidden in her vagina when she was brought into jail yesterday afternoon following a collar for driving with a suspended license, police report.

As Dallas Archer was being booked into the Kingsport jail, a female corrections officer alerted to an “unknown object” in the teenager’s crotch during a search.

The jailer and a female cop then accompanied Archer to a bathroom for further examination, a review that led to the recovery of a “North American Arms 22 LR revolver (loaded) which Ms. Dallas had concealed in her vagina,” according to a Kingsport Police Department report.

A subsequent check revealed that the five-shot mini-revolver–which is four inches in length–had been “stolen from an auto burglary in 2013.” The handgun, which police valued at $250, is owned by John Souther, a 70-year-old retired car salesman.  More

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
