Canon Camera Lost In Ocean for Six Years Returned

Camera Lost In Ocean for Six Years Returned
In what might have simply been a gigantic publicity stunt, China Airlines and Hawaii News Now have teamed together to return a camera to a woman who lost it. The incredible part is that she lost it six years ago, in the ocean. The Canon Power Shot, sheathed in a plastic waterproof housing, survived, and the pictures were even salvaged from the memory card.

The story can tell us a lot about the durability of plastic, but it’s also an interesting look at just how connected the corners of the globe can be. This isn’t the first camera lost in an exotic place and returned to its owner. In 2009, a couple hiking around Scotland spotted a digital camera lying on the ground and handed it over to the police. When it was returned to them with no sign of the owners, the couple who found the camera opened up the memory card and went searching for the couple in the pictures. Eventually, after posting the pictures on the Internet and recruiting …

Underwater Internet Attack Was Diabolical

Underwater Internet Attack Almost Succeeds
Three Crazy James Bond Villains Were Caught Trying to Cut Through The Internet’s Undersea CablesEric Limer
While the Internet at large was freaking out about an apocalyptic attack that wasn’t really happening yesterday, something nefarious was going down at the bottom of the sea. Egyptian authorites found a trio of divers down there attempting to sever a crucial submarine communications cable.
Yesterday, Egypt’s Coast Guard stumbled upon a suspicious fishing boat off the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria. There’s no word on what tipped them off, but upon investigation, they caught the team of divers up to no good and apparently mid-cut. The cable in question is owned by Egypt Telecom, the country’s monopoly landline provider, making it sort of an important link in the vast network of undersea Internet connections.

These guys were slicing away right here by node #5:

(CBS/AP) PATERSON, N.J. – Authorities say a New Jersey man who won the $338 million Powerball jackpot on Monday is subject to potential arrest for owing about $29,000 in child support, CBS New York reports.



Pedro Quezada, 44, claimed a lump a lump-sum payment worth $221 million, or about $152 million after taxes, the fourth-largest jackpot in Powerball history, according to the station. He said Tuesday that he hasn’t made up his mind on what to do with the money, but he could use a good car and give back to his community and “help those in need.”

But authorities said Quezada owed child support payments that go back to 2009. It’s not known which of Quezada’s five children, who range in …

Russian Spaceship Docks With Orbiting International Space Station Associated Press


A Soyuz capsule carrying three astronauts has successfully docked with the International Space Station, bringing the size of the crew at the orbiting lab to six.

Chris Cassidy of the United States and Russians Pavel Vinogradov and Alexander Misurkin traveled six hours in the capsule before linking up with the space station’s Russian Rassvet research module. It was the first time a space crew has taken such a direct route.

The incoming crew will spend five months in space before returning to Earth.

Their mission began with a late-night launch from the Russian-leased Baikonur launch pad in Kazakhstan.

US Nuclear Bombers Fly Over North Korea Air Space

US Nuclear-Capable Bombers Complete Training Mission In South Korea US military announces B-2 stealth bomber drills amid threats of nuclear strikes from North Korea
A B-2 stealth bomber, right, flies over a US airbase in Pyeongtaek, South Korea.

The US has taken the unprecedented step of publicly announcing that two of its nuclear-capable B-2 bombers have taken part in military exercises with South Korea, dropping dummy munitions on an island range, in what is taken to be a show of force following weeks of North Korean hostility. The announcement on Thursday is likely to further enrage Pyongyang, which has already issued a flood of ominous statements to highlight its displeasure at the exercises and at UN sanctions over its nuclear test last month.

But there were signs on Thursday that it is willing to go only so far. A North Korean industrial plant operated with South Korean know-how was running normally, despite the north’s shutdown a day earlier of communication lines ordinar…

Kardashian Alligator Shooting!

Kardashian Reptile Murder!


Scott Disick should have his legs sliced open, blood gushing, and then be fed to the gators … that’s what a Reptile Rescue Org wants … after Scott shot an alligator in the face on a recent episode of  “Kourtney and Kim Take Miami.”

Mary Hart from International Reptile Rescue — a world renowned nonprofit that’s been rescuing reptiles for decades — tells TMZ, Scott’s hunting trip which aired this weekend on E! was a cruel, insensitive act.

She says, “He didn’t kill that alligator, he murdered that alligator.” And she goes on: “Fairness would be to cut both his thighs so he bleeds and then toss him in a gator pond with gators small enough to rip him apart slowly and painfully.”

FYI … in the episode Scott hunted the gator (legally) in Florida … shot at point-blank range in the head and later skinned and gutted it — all while cameras rolled.

Cyprus Bank Remains Open Others Wiped Out
Cyprus banks stay open in UK, savers protected (AFP) LONDON — Branches of the Bank of Cyprus and another Cypriot bank, Laiki, have remained open in Britain while banks on the island have been closed and they say their depositors have not been affected by the 'hit' that savers in Cyprus have taken. Cyprus announced that banks will re-open on Thursday after being closed for two weeks while it negotiated an international bailout, but branches of Cypriot banks in Britain have been operating throughout the crisis. However Bank of Cyprus told AFP on Wednesday that it was not possible to withdraw money frozen in accounts in Cyprus from its branches in Britain. Bank of Cyprus savers have been warned that under the conditions of the bailout, savers with more than 100,000 euros stand to lose 40 percent of their money. But a spokesman for the bank's British arm said: "There is no effect on deposits with Bank of Cyprus UK Limite…

Medical Marijuana Bill Passes Congress!

Medical Marijuana Bill Passes HouseBill to allow doctors, nurses to dispense drug moves to Senate By Erin Cox,
Legislation to legalize medical marijuana passed the House of Delegates Monday, sending the measure to the Senate.

The bill would allow marijuana to be distributed through academic research centers by doctors and nurses. Similar measures have failed in previous years, but this year Gov. Martin O’Malley dropped his opposition and backed the proposal.

Currently, 18 other states and the District of Columbia allows for the use of marijuana for medical purposes. The bill’s sponsor, Del. Dan Morhaim, a physician and a Baltimore Democrat, has described Maryland’s potential program as the tightest and most controlled of any in the country.

The bill’s passage in the House comes a week after the Senate approved a separate measure that would decriminalize possession of small amounts of pot. The House has not yet voted on the decriminalization bill.

Ford apologizes for advert that shows Paris Hilton smiling with glee at sight of the Kardashians bound and tied in her trunk By Leslie Larson

A brainstorming project at an advertising agency for Ford’s Figo has gone very wrong, with the final creative causing a major headache for the car company.

Posters for the compact sedan were uploaded to the internet featuring notable personalities, including reality TV starlet Paris Hilton and disgraced Italian politician Silvio Berlusconi, smiling with glee at seeing their rivals, bound, gagged and stuffed in the car’s trunk.

The shocking drawings were apparently supposed to advertise the sedan’s spacious cargo area but Ford has issued an apology and chastised the ad agency who publicized the artwork.

Skydive Instructor And Student Plummet To Their Deaths In Florida ZEPHYRHILLS, Fla. – Authorities say a skydive instructor and a student who jumped separately have died in Florida.


The skydivers, both men, were part of a jump Saturday in Zephyrhills, about 30 miles northeast of Tampa. Authorities say the plane took off about 10:30 a.m. and 22 people jumped. When only 20 returned, authorities started searching for the missing men.

The bodies were located about 7:30 p.m. in a wooded area south of the Zephyrhills Municipal Airport. They were found near each other.

Pasco County sheriff’s spokeswoman Melanie Snow would not comment on whether their parachutes had opened, saying that was part of the investigation.

The skydivers were part of a jump through Skydive City in Zephyrhills.

Snow says authorities will release the names after next of kin are notified.

Senator Ron Paul on Marijuana

Rand Paul: I Don’t Promote Marijuana Sen. Rand Paul said Sunday that President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush could have “conceivably been put in jail” for their drug use, ruining their lives and impacting their getting elected to office.

“Look, the last two presidents could have conceivably been put in jail for their drug use and I really think – look what would’ve happened, it would’ve ruined their lives. They got lucky. But a lot of poor kids, particularly in the inner city, don’t get lucky and they don’t have good attorneys and they go to jail for some of these things and I think it’s a big mistake,” the Kentucky Republican said on Fox’s “Fox News Sunday.”

“Actually, I think it would be the last three presidents, but who’s counting?” host Chris Wallace said with a laugh, referring to former President Bill Clinton.

“There you go,” Paul said.

“But he didn’t inhale,” Wallace quipped.
Paul said that he doesn’t support people using marijuana but said he al…

Huge Light Show Seen Over The US East Coast
By Amar Toor

NASA has announced this week that a bright flash observed over the East Coast of the US Friday night was likely a meteor. According to USA Today, the American Meteor Society received more than 350 reports of a possible meteor last night, with sightings ranging from Florida to New England. The nature of the flash remained unclear until later Friday, when Bill Cooke of NASA’s Meteoroid Environmental Office confirmed that it appeared to be a “single meteor event.” “we’re dealing with something as bright as the full moon.”

As the Associated Press reports, experts believe the flash was bright enough to be classified as a fireball. “Judging from the brightness, we’re dealing with something as bright as the full moon,” Bill Cooke of NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office said. “We basically have (had) a boulder enter the atmosphere over the northeast.” Robert Lunsford, a fireball coordinator at the American Meteor Socie…

Death Penalty for Punxsutawney Phil

Groundhog Slay: Prosecutor Seeks Death Penalty For Punxsutawney Phil


Has Punxsutawney Phil given his last forecast?

A prosecutor in Ohio is reportedly seeking the death penalty for the famous rodent who emerged from his home in Gobbler’s Knob, Pa., on Feb. 2 and did not see his shadow, translating to an “early spring,” according to his handlers. But Michael Gmoser, prosecuting attorney in Butler County, said Thursday that Phil’s inaccurate forecast warrants capital punishment, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

“Let’s face it, Punxsutawney Phil has let us down,” Gmoser said, tongue firmly in cheek, after filing the necessary court documents. “I awoke this morning to a snowstorm, low temperatures and howling wind.”
“Maybe it’s time for a Phyllis instead.” - Butler County (Ohio) Prosecutor Michael Gmoser
Spring began Wednesday, but local forecasts in the Pittsburgh area and throughout Pennsylvania show a good chance of snow this weekend and into next week.

Twenty-Foot-Long Air Force Drone Found Floating off the Florida KeysMonths after the $600,000 Craft was Shot Down The picturesque waters of the Florida Keys received an unwanted visitor over the weekend when a giant orange drone was found – months after it was shot down by the U.S. Air Force.

The remote-controlled craft was reportedly found floating in the water off the Upper Keys over the weekend by boaters in the area.

The BQM-167 aerial target drone, was later confiscated by the U.S. Coast Guard and returned to the Air Force, which will repair the craft so that it my occupy the skies again.
At $570,000-a-pop, a refurbished drone would likely be considered much more economically feasible
than a brand new one.

The device is used mainly for target practice.

Air Force officials said the drone appearing in Florida had been shot down back in January, according to reports.
But at 20 feet long and bright orange in color, the drone was a startling sight for those who saw the missile-l…

Cigarette Vending Machines to be replaced with Marijuana models

Marijuana Vending Machines May Be Coming To California By Aaron Sankin
Vending machines have long dispensed chips and candy bars to Californians. But what if it could also sell the marijuana one consumed before eating said chips and candy bars?

Medical cannabis vending machines are gradually becoming a reality in the Golden State. A number of companies have begun offering their products for sale or lease to pot shops in California, and San Diego’s city council will look at approving their wider use later this month.
The city of Los Angleles already has at least three dispensaries using the technology.

Unlike traditional vending machines, ones for marijuana come replete with a host of security features to ensure only legal patients are able to access what’s inside. Machines made by Orange
County-based Dispense Labs, for example, require users to insert a pre-approved membership card and take a thumb print scan before selecting from some 800 items.

Two Apollo-Era Engines Pulled From The Depths Of The Atlantic by Amazon CEO Expedition


LOS ANGELES –  Two mammoth rocket engines that helped boost Apollo astronauts to the moon have been fished out of the Atlantic.

An expedition led by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos pulled up the engines and is headed back to Cape Canaveral, Fla., after three weeks at sea.

 Bezos and NASA announced the recovery on Wednesday.
The sunken engines were part of the mighty Saturn V rocket used to fly astronauts to the moon during the 1960s and 1970s. After liftoff, they fell into the ocean as planned.

The engines are the property of NASA. The space agency congratulated Bezos on his efforts. The team planned to restore the artifacts for later display.

Bezos’ space company, Blue Origins, has a NASA contract to develop a private space taxi to the International Space Station.

FBI Announces Tips, Reward for Recovery of Works Stolen From Boston in 1990
By Jennifer Levitz
BOSTON—It has endured as one of the most perplexing mysteries in Boston and the wider art world: Who pulled off the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum heist, stealing 13 artworks worth an estimated $500 million, including rare paintings by Rembrandt, just after 1 a.m. on March 18, 1990.


Among the works stolen from the Gardner museum on March 18, 1990, was Rembrandt’s ‘The Storm on the Sea of Galilee.’

On Monday, the 23rd anniversary of the crime, the Federal Bureau of Investigation for the first time said it believes the thieves belonged to a criminal organization based in the mid-Atlantic and New England states. The agency declined to provide further details about the suspects, citing a continuing investigation, but it said it now believes that after the theft, the stolen haul was taken to Philadelphia and Connecticut and then offered for sale in Philadelphia about 10 years ago.

No Marijuana Lollipops for the Kids!

Edible Pot Feared in Arizona

Lawmakers in Arizona fear edible pot products, which include cookies and candy, might be consumed by children.

 The individually packaged brownies, lollipops and chocolate-dipped cookies for sale at the Green Halo dispensary in Tucson look like kid-friendly snacks. They have one ingredient, however, that makes them anything but: The tempting confections are infused with marijuana.

Staff at the Green Halo say that about half of the patients using their dispensary prefer to take their doses of medical marijuana in edible items. And although the candy-wrapper medical drugs can be bought only at Arizona’s medical-marijuana dispensaries by licensed cardholders, law-enforcement officials are concerned the items will end up in the hands of children.

It’s already happened, according to Phoenix police. A West Valley eighth-grader was caught earlier this month with a piece of marijuana-infused candy, and police believe she had passed the candy out to other …
