Thu, 19 Oct 2017 20:50:20 UT

BERLÍN (AP) — La cantidad de insectos voladores ha disminuido “de forma alarmante” en Alemania, y los expertos advierten que ello podría tener severas consecuencias para los ecosistemas y la cadena alimenticia. De acuerdo con un estudio publicado el miércoles en la revista científica PLOS ONE, un equipo de investigadores utilizó diminutas trampas en 63 reservas naturales en el oeste de Alemania, y detectó que en el periodo de 1989 a 2016 la cantidad de estas minúsculas criaturas disminuyó un 76%. La disminución entre veranos en ese periodo alcanzó 82%.



Student's yearbook photo rejected because he's holding gun

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 20:15:11 UT

STANDISH, Maine (AP) — A Maine high school has rejected a student's submitted yearbook photo because it shows him holding a shotgun. Bonny Eagle High School senior Wade Gelinas says he wanted his picture to feature hunting because it is a family tradition. Principal Lori Napolitano tells WCSH-TV the school in Standish does not allow weapons in yearbook photos because administrators don't want to be forced to decide which images are promoting violence and which aren't. The photographer says she thought there was "no way" Gelinas would be allowed to use it. Gelinas says he will submit a different photo but hopes the school will change its policy. ___ Information from: WCSH-TV, http://www.wcsh6.com



Police video shows large bear peering into shop windows

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 19:06:34 UT

KINGS BEACH, Calif. (AP) — A very large bear-about-town was spotted peering into shop windows in a California tourist community on Lake Tahoe. The Placer (PLAH'-ser) County Sheriff's Office posted video on its Facebook page of the four-pawed prowler early Wednesday. In it, Deputy Don Nevins shines his car's spotlight on the animal and shouts, "Hey, big boy!" before warning the bear against breaking into any of the shops it's sniffing around. Shortly after, the bear darts in front of his patrol car and off into a park. Sheriff's spokeswoman Dena Erwin says deputies respond to bear calls every day because they break into cars, homes and businesses.



2-story 'Star Wars' replica in yard for Halloween is big hit

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 18:31:06 UT

PARMA, Ohio (AP) — A two-story, "Star Wars"-inspired Halloween yard display in Ohio is enticing kids to get toy lightsabers and attracting hundreds of visitors from across the state. Elevator mechanic Nick Meyer, 39, spent about $1,500 and 10 hours a weekend for half a year to build a replica of the four-legged All Terrain Armored Transport, or AT-AT walker. He built it with his carpenter friend Anthony Paroda, and it's been such a success that spectators are donating money for them to build another display next year. At 19 feet, the replica is nearly as tall as Meyer's home in Parma, a Cleveland suburb.

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 18:11:16 UT

PARMA, Ohio, EE.UU. (AP) — Un enorme adorno de Halloween inspirado en "Star Wars” ha causado tanta sensación en un suburbio de Ohio que muchos niños se han vuelto fanáticos de la película y numerosas personas han venido de otros estados para verlo.

El adorno, que es casi tan alto como la casa, está construido de madera, poliéster y barriles de plástico, dijo Meyer. Añadió que usó como modelo un juguete que compró en internet.

Police: Unpaid $7 Waffle House bill leads to ID theft ring

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 18:09:06 UT

PEARL RIVER, La. (AP) — Police in Louisiana have uncovered a sophisticated, Los Angeles-based identity theft ring, thanks to two men who skipped out on their $7 Waffle House bill, authorities said. Waffle House employees called police Saturday, saying two men had stiffed the restaurant and driven away in a U-Haul van. Investigators were still taking statements at the restaurant when patrol officers spotted a U-Haul van parked at a nearby hotel, Pearl River police said Thursday. A passenger ran into nearby woods as officers approached, according to a news release from Deputy Chief Daniel Hunter. The officers arrested the driver, and a police dog tracked down the passenger, who also was arrested, he said.




Texas district alters homecoming queen's hair color in photo

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 17:53:01 UT

HOUSTON (AP) — A Houston-area school district has apologized for altering a high school homecoming queen's purple hair in a photo. Ebony Smith was crowned North Shore Senior High School's homecoming queen last month. Galena Park Independent School District shared a photo of Smith online last week in which her hair had been altered to appear brown. Smith says the image was poorly edited and embarrassing. The school district has apologized for posting the altered photo and has since replaced it with a black-and-white version of the picture. The district's student handbook says bright hair colors are unacceptable in the classroom, but Smith planned to dye her hair brown after homecoming.



No Go: Pokemon-costumed man arrested after White House jump

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 17:49:52 UT

WASHINGTON (AP) — A Kentucky man dressed as the Pokemon character Pikachu is accused of trying to jump the White House fence — all in the name of making a YouTube video. Curtis Combs of Somerset, Kentucky, was arrested Tuesday morning and charged with unlawful entry. An arrest affidavit says Combs was dressed as Pikachu and told authorities he wanted to become famous and had planned to post a video of it on YouTube. The affidavit filed in D.C. Superior Court says Combs jumped a barrier on the outer perimeter of the south grounds of the White House complex and was quickly arrested. Combs told police he expected to be arrested and had researched D.C. charges and previous jumpers. Combs pleaded not guilty Wednesday.



NYC water main breaks, sending geyser blasting onto house

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 16:08:55 UT

NEW YORK (AP) — Public works crews have repaired a broken water main that caused a geyser to erupt from the ground in front of a New York City home. The owner of the home in Staten Island's Todt Hill section told the Staten Island Advance that a powerful stream of water began pounding the front of the house Wednesday morning, breaking several windows. The front lawn caved in and water from the broken pipe shot 15 to 20 feet into the air directly toward the house. The geyser eventually subsided but water continued to pour out of the hole as emergency crews arrived on the scene. About two dozen homes in the neighborhood were without water.



Alaska rescue group takes in alligator that outgrew bathtub

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 14:40:57 UT

WASILLA, Alaska (AP) — It was an odd day for one Alaska animal control officer who took a call about an alligator outgrowing its bathtub. KTUU-TV reports that a Wasilla resident called 911 this week after realizing that the more than 4-foot-long (1.2-meter-long) alligator named Allie couldn't live in a tub anymore. Rescue group Valley Aquatics took Allie in. Valley Aquatics owner Sheridan Perkins says Allie is a 3-year-old American alligator. Perkins says she has thought about re-homing Allie in Florida. The alligator is Wasilla's second run in this year with a large reptile. In May, a 17-foot (5.2-meter) python named Sam went missing for several days before reappearing in his home's living room.

Fan-tastic! Man who caught Turner HR ball snags Wrigley shot

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 11:43:56 UT

He's become Mr. Hawk-tober. Remember that fan who made the great catch on Justin Turner's game-ending home run at Dodger Stadium over the weekend? Guess what? He did it again. Keith Hupp came up with his second homer souvenir in the NL Championship Series, corralling the ball Cubs star Javier Baez hit into the bleachers at Wrigley Field on Wednesday night. "I'm still kind of a newbie at this ballhawking stuff," the retired policeman told The Associated Press in a phone interview from Chicago. "The only thing that's lightning strike-ish about this is that it's two in four days." Hupp is 54, from Southern California and has rooted for the Dodgers forever.
