lotteryA Connecticut woman’s $1 graduation gift turned out to be more valuable than expected when the lottery ticket won her $2,000 a month for life.

Anissa Dellaripa, 22, of South Windsor, told Connecticut Lottery officials her dad bought her the $1 Win for Life ticket as a college graduation gift and she was shocked to discover she had won the top prize, $2,000 a month for life.

“My dad often buys me scratch tickets for fun,” Dellaripa said. “He gave me this one and said, ‘Here, scratch it.’ The ticket cost only a dollar; he didn’t really think anything of it. I went to my room, scratched the ticket, and couldn’t believe it when I saw the ‘WIN FOR LIFE’ prize [symbol]. I thought he gave me a fake ticket as a joke, but I really won!”

Dellaripa decided to take the $2,000 per month payment option over the lump sum, which would have come to $400,000.

Snakes On A Plate Served Steamed Or Fried In This Country

snakesWith their meat served up in a wide array of dishes and blood added to rice wine, snakes make a reputedly satisfying — and nourishing — meal in Vietnam.

Caught in the jungles of the north of the country, snake flesh is traditionally believed to help with cooling overheated body temperatures, relieving headaches and easing digestion.

Restaurants will cook it steamed or fried with lemongrass and chilli and serve it with a rice wine mixed with snake blood, said chef Dinh Tien Dung, who works at a restaurant in Yen Bai province three hours northwest of the capital Hanoi.

Holding a snake’s head with one hand, Dinh Tien Dung slit its body near the head with a knife and squeezed blood out of it, dripping it into a cup of rice wine.

“We make use of every part of the snake except its head and its scales,” said the 32-year-old.

Locals believe that only men over 50 should drink snake wine, as younger males are likely to experience “backache or impotence,” said restaurant owner Duong Duc Doc.

Florida man stops to help stranded motorist who turned out to be hitman hired to kill him

hitWhen police found Carlos Cruz-Echevarria dead near his home last Veterans Day, he was lying face down in a ditch, shot multiple times in the head.

Beside him was a truck stuck in the mud. Later, the 60-year-old army veteran’s car was found several miles away, torched. It seemed like a random, senseless killing: authorities thought Cruz-Echevarria had been robbed and left for dead after stopping to help a stranger on a Daytona Beach roadside. But a year long investigation has revealed that it was anything but random.

The Volusia County Sheriff’s Department arrested two men and a woman this week in what they are calling a murder-for-hire plot to keep Cruz-Echaverria from testifying in a road rage case.

The three have been charged with first degree murder, and prosecutors are considering the death penalty, sheriff Michael Chitwood said in a Friday news conference.

“This is one of the most heinous, despicable, cowardly acts that I’ve ever witnessed,” Mr Chitwood said. “Somebody’s gonna pay the ultimate price.”

In a savage stroke of fate, a passing driver stopped to help him out: Cruz-Echevarria. As he bent to inspect the truck, authorities said, Bascom shot him multiple times in the head.

“The stars aligned unfortunately,” sheriff Chitwood said during the news conference. “He didn’t even see it coming.”

In some ways, the plot worked: the charges against McFoley were dropped, and for months, it seemed there would be no justice in Cruz-Echevarria’s slaying. Investigators offered a $10,000 (£7,700) reward for information leading to the killer’s capture. Then DNA evidence tied the stolen car and Cruz-Echevarria’s torched one to Bascom, but the real “smoking gun” in the case came from phone records, Mr Henderson said.

All three alleged co-conspirators were arrested Tuesday in different parts of the state, Mr Henderson said. Bascom was trying to flee – he had bought a one-way ticket to Texas and was going through security check at Orlando International Airport when he was arrested. US marshals nabbed McFoley in Orlando. Volusia County detectives caught Roque on a Florida interstate highway.

Assistant state attorney Ryan Will said prosecutors are considering seeking the death penalty for the three people charged in Cruz-Echevarria’s death. In the next 30 days, prosecutors will talk with the victim’s family and see what their wishes are moving forward, but as of now, capital punishment is a possibility, Mr Will said.

Cruz-Echevarria was a hardworking, self-made man who was beloved by those who knew him, Volusia County Sheriff’s office detective said in a video shown at the news conference. His slaying “brought the community to its knees”.

Mr Chitwood said he hopes the defendants get the death penalty, stressing that Cruz-Echevarria had not deserved to die.

“A road rage incident where a man does what he’s supposed to do: notify the police, cooperate with the system, and his thanks was to end up with multiple bullets in his head,” he said.

bansAn Indonesian district has banned women and men from eating together unless they are related or married.

An official from the profoundly Islamic Aceh province on the northwest tip of Sumatra island – one of the country’s most conservative regions – said the prohibition was implemented to make women more “well-behaved”.

 The regulation dictates women in the Bireuën district will not be allowed to share a table with men at restaurants and coffee shops unless they are accompanied by their spouse or a close male relative.

“Unmarried males and females who are not close relatives should not eat and drink at the same table, because it is sinful according to shariah law,” Jufliwan, the head of Bireuën district’s Islamic Affairs office, told AFP.

taserA school resource officer from Ohio was placed on administrative leave for using a stun gun on a sleeping student, school officials said.

Maryssa Boskoski, 32, was a part-time resource officer assigned to Liberty Preparatory School in Smithville, Ohio, for the year, WEWS reported. A male student, who is a junior at the school, would not wake up for his teacher or Interim Principal Jenna Parnell on August 30, according to the news station.

Boskoski arrived at the classroom with Parnell and activated the Taser a few feet away from the teen, WEWS reported. The Taser did not touch the student, but the sparks from the Taser alarmed other teens in the classroom and woke up the sleeping student. The school announced Boskoski was placed on administrative leave on Wednesday.

“She did take her Taser, remove the cartridge from it, and arced the Taser,” said Smithville Police Chief Howard Funk.

Naked Florida man starts house fire while baking cookies on George Foreman grill in Niceville

niceResponding to a house fire last week, Niceville police officers and firefighters encountered an odd sight.

When firefighters got to the home around 5:30 p.m., they could see smoke coming from inside. A naked man opened the front door, said, “I’m sorry” and closed the door.

Police officers arrived shortly after to assist.

The man came to the door again, left it open and went back into the house.

According to the offense report from the Police Department, the man showed no signs of understanding the danger he was in. There were several things on fire inside the home, including some towels.

The man admitted to drinking two liters of vodka and smoking marijuana starting around 9 a.m. that morning. He was examined at the scene and had no life-threatening injuries, the report said. He refused further medical treatment.

Based on the fire department’s investigation, the man allegedly tried baking cookies on a George Foreman grill — which he left unattended. The grill and cookies caught fire, so he put dry towels on top of the grill. Those caught fire, too, causing the fire to spread.

fishA fishmonger in Kuwait has been closed down for sticking googly eyes on fish to make them appear fresher.

A video of the fish was first circulated among local WhatsApp users.

And images, including one showing one of the fake eyes slipping off, have been shared on social media by local bloggers and newspaper Al Bayan.

Rival Kuwaiti fish sellers reacted by advertising fresh fish “without cosmetics” with a picture of a fish and a selection of coloured contact lenses.

In July, another Kuwaiti fishmonger was accused of stuffing his fish with steel nails to increase their weight and market value.

Two co-workers in Chippewa Falls discover they’re father and son

fatherNathan’s adoptive parents knew who his biological parents were but because Nathan never asked, they never told him. One day, Nathan’s mom noticed that Nathan was Facebook friends with his biological father. After continuing the conversation with his adoptive mother, Nathan discovered his biological father is a truck driver, just like him. “She just went on my Facebook and went through my friends list and brought up his picture and I said get out of here,” said Boos.

Turns out, Nathan’s biological father has been working at Rock Solid Transport in Chippewa Falls. The two men have actually been working together for the past two years. “He messaged me on Facebook one day and asked me if I knew his biological mother and I’m like yeah that’s my ex-wife…and I about fell out of my seat…I’m like oh my god,” said Bob Degaro of Chippewa Falls.
Bob, who has two other children with his ex-wife, says the choice to give Nathan up for adoption was a difficult one caused by financial stress. “Back then I wasn’t much of a dad. His biological mom had chosen the adoptive parents because they were somewhat related…distant cousins I believe but I didn’t know that,” said Degaro.

Both say they’re excited to continue growing the friendship they already had.”It’s still kind of a shock and there’s days I’m not sure exactly what to say or how to act…I mean he is my son but we didn’t have that father son relationship growing up and then we became working partners before we knew who we really were,” said Bob. Nathan says they’re just taking things one day at a time, or one mile at a time as truck drivers say.

Both men say the unlikely reunion has brought them both a sense of peace and they plan to continue building their friendship. Nate is set to get married soon and says he’s looking forward to Bob being there on his special day.

Virginia man puts up electric fence to keep kids off his lawn

fenceBryan Tucker says that he is annoyed at school kids trespassing on his lawn while they are waiting for their school bus. He said that he erected the fence on Tuesday because he had an issue last year with kids littering and trespassing on his property.

He complains that he has to pick up trash every day and that they don’t respect other people’s land.

He says that the “No Trespassing” signs that he posted on his property for years have seemed to do anything so he decided that he needed to try something different.

As you could imagine his neighbours were in shock to find out about the fence as kids gathered at the bus stop for their first day of school.

A man says that he felt a literal shock when he touched the fence.

County workers and police were called to check out the property. They found that the fence was on the county’s right of way, so Tucker took it down a few hours only after he put it up.

Tucker says that he could put the fence back up as long as it’s on his property line – which is 18 feet back from the street. He says that he hopes he doesn’t need to do that.

“The message has gotten out, I’m pretty sure, to everybody,” he said. “The point’s gotten across.”

seagulA man accused of kicking a seagull that tried to eat his cheeseburger at a New Hampshire beach has been fined $124.

Police investigated the report from a bystander at Hampton Beach earlier this summer.

NH1 reports the man Nate Rancloes, said he had just returned from getting a cheeseburger and fries and was sitting on the sand.

He said seagulls got to the burger, and he spun around with his leg to shoo one away, but struck the bird. He said it was a simple mistake.

A witness said it appeared the bird’s leg was injured and that it struggled to fly away.

New Hampshire Fish and Game Lt. Adam Cheeney says seagulls are protected under federal law.
