Australian gov't struggling to stop 400-mln-USD gold scam

Columbus, OH — Another sad story in the news today involving the accidental death of a 6-year-old boy who was accidentally hanged by a rope while playing on a slide.San Antonio, Texas – Charlie Patton, 15, decided to do something a little different for her James Madison High School yearbook picture and made a stupid face. And I’m gonna be honest with you, the shit is funny. But even though she was not asked to retake the picture, school officials have decided not to print it in the yearbook. They released this statement: “Since the yearbook represents the school and the students, the goal is to have every student presented in the best light…Students who make inappropriate faces or gestures or who do not follow the school dress code in their yearbook photos are asked to retake their photo free of charge.” I could care less to be honest with you. I’m just posting this so you can watch the video and post the face she made. I thought it was hilarious. […]

Harry Potter anniv. among Britain's tourism highlights in 2017: VisitBritain

I understand bullying. I don’t condone it, but someone picking on someone different or weaker than themselves is hard-coded into our DNA, I think, and will never go away until it is deemed socially unacceptable. But I don’t get how all these decades later, with all the information available regarding Asperger’s and autism readily available, parents and their children could condone this kind of behavior towards a kid suffering from the disability.PLANTATION, Fla. — On Tuesday morning a landscaping crew was hard at work at the Southern Pointe Apartments. One of the workers was using an industrial sized riding mower to cut the grass near the canal when it ended up in the water, pinning the 26-year-old man underneath. None of the co-workers witnessed him go in and did not figure out what had happened until they noticed he was missing. Police were called but unfortunately the water, like my last date’s vagina, was too dark and too deep for anyone to enter and be effective. It would take Fire Department divers to free the man from underneath the mower. He was brought to the surface in cardiac arrest and would later die at the hospital. Investigators are not sure if a heart attack caused the man to drive the mower into the canal or if the heart attack was a result of being trapped underwater with a lawnmower on top of him, but feel he may have hit the accelerator too hard and popped a wheelie before toppling into the canal. NBC Miami claims this is the second landscaper this month who has drowned after being trapped underneath their lawnmower. I wonder if that poor guy’s last thoughts were like mine would be in that situation. Something like, “Seriously?”

Chinese offer for Lucas Lima "impossible to refuse," says agent

REVERE, MA Revere fire captain, Carl Holmberg, is on paid leave after he used a golf club to attack a group of kids who were allegedly harassing his family on Halloween night.Overall, I feel Caught is one of Coben’s better thrillers with a leading lady I quickly warmed up to and with interesting characters instead of the clichd, one-dimensional cast from a Lifetime mystery movie. Just as in real life, nothing is always as it seems and the good guys are as flawed as the bad guys, rarely operating consistently on either end of the moral spectrum. Coben expertly handles multiple, intertwined storylines, keeping them from tripping all over themselves as they make their way towards their individual conclusions — sometimes in ways I did not expect. Oh yeah, on a minor note, Coben has a handle on the Internet and how it can be used to defame and slander. It was refreshing to read a book in which blogging and Facebook play a role and were done so in a believable manner. I know that may not mean much to some, but it always aggravated the hell out of me when modern technology is represented by someone who has obviously never used or researched it.

Sale of Portugal's Novo Banco must not impact country's public accounts: ministry

Coleman thought Edwards was talking to another man. What other reason could she possibly have to break up with him, I am sure he asked himself. So he took their 2 month old little boy, put him on the kitchen table, and stabbed him in the neck. That wasn’t enough for the tiny infant, he then threw the baby on the floor. Next he ran towards Edwards and attacked her with the knife.Delta, CO — Acting on an a tip, Delta police arrested 47-year-old Jeffrey Bigham last Tuesday and will likely charge him with nearly 900 counts of child sexual assault.
