CONCERT GOERS MAY LOSE OUT TO TICKET BROKERS

2007-10-07T03:13:51.441-05:00

TICKETS

People looking for tickets to concerts and sporting events may not get the chance to buy them on "Ticket Master" or any other well known ticket outlet because there are others using computers and auto dialers to flood Ticket Master with calls as soon as tickets are to go on sale, and buy up all available ticket in a short period of time, only to resale them at higher prices either through ads in news papers or online. Ticket Master has even joined the investigation to put a stop to this type of ticket sales.

2007-10-05T00:56:24.466-05:00

STUDY

A new and innovative study of American kids is about to be launched. Although other child studies have been done, they have usually concentrated on one particular aspect of a child's life. This study is going to track their educational, economic, educational, health, achievements and many other aspects. This study will involve the CDC, Dept. of Health and many other agencies.

Over 100,000 children will be picked from all across the US, and will be tracked from before birth until they are 21.



TRIBAL MEMBERS INDICTED

2007-10-05T00:34:39.987-05:00

HUNT

Nine members of the Makah tribe of the Seattle area, have been indicted on charges in the illegal whale hunt.

In 1994, the Federal gov't removed the California gray whale from the endangered species list. In 1999, the tribe gor a permit through the National Marine Fisheries Service, to kill one whale, which would provide the tribe with a year's worth of whale meat. They killed their first whale in over 70 years. Although the Government allowed that first hunt, there were negotiations to allow the tribe to continue the hunts. Nothing was final.

The man who lead this illegal hunt was the same man who lead the first whale hunt in 1999, in which they are allowed to hunt as their ancestors did, with harpoons. The tribals elders say that these men did not have permission from the tribe and they used high powered rifles this time.

2007-10-02T23:40:25.578-05:00

WOMEN

A study at Duke University's School of Medicine showed that men, up until the age of 85 are more like to die from a sudden heart attack than women, there fore Medicaid and Medicare are unlike to pay for the expense of the operation or device for women when they are less likely to die from a heart attack.



HUNTSVILLE, ALABAMA PLANNING TO REOPEN FALLOUT SHELTERS

2007-10-01T02:41:32.054-05:00

FALLOUT SHELTERS

Because of the increasing threat of an al-Qiada attacks, Huntsville, AL in working on reopening the fallout shelters that were built or designated during the cold war. These shelters were closed after the fall of the Soviet Union. Even the air raid sirens have been changed to tornado sirens.

The one worry I have is, those shelters were laughingly inadequate during the cold war. Most wouldn't have protected anyone from a nuclear attack. Huntsville wants to reopen these shelters in fear that al-Qiada might use a dirty bomb to attack the US.



MAN LIVED WITH DEAD ROOMMATE'S BODY A MONTH

2007-09-30T07:39:19.767-05:00

BODY

David Morse, 40, waited a month to report his 86 yr old roommate's death while he cleaned out the roommates bank account and cashed his checks. The reason he didn't report the death is because he had an active warrant for his arrest for non-payment of child support. So far the roommate's death is under investigation.



SIX DIE FROM A BRAIN EATING AMEOBA AFTER SWIMING IN LAIKE

2007-09-29T01:14:50.703-05:00

BRAIN EATING MICRO-ORGANISM

Six young men have died after swimming in Lake Havasu, near Phoenix, AZ. What killed them was a single cell organism that lives in lakes, ponds, swimming pools that haven't been maintained well. It enters the boy through the nose or other opening and makes its way to the brain, which it feeds on.



U. OF WISSCONSIN SECURITY LOOK FOR SUICIDAL GUNMAN

2007-09-26T01:59:34.866-05:00

GUNMAN

The University has been receiving calls from a suicidal man who they believe doesn't really want to shoot anyone but is trying to provoke the police into shooting him.

Jesse Miller, 19, has a history of mental illness and was on a work release program after serving most of an armed robbery conviction.

He made a call to the police on Tuesday that he was on the parking deck of the hospital and was going to shoot anyone who came near him. He also called ina bomb threat to the hospital on campus.

The police really believe that he is trying to provoke a suicide by cop.



BEAKED WHALES ARE AFFECTED BY SONAR TEST

2007-09-24T02:07:14.785-05:00

WHALES

There is a small group of whales that have been shown to be effected by sonar tests. Beaked whale have been shown to be more sensitive to such after. After a series of tests by the Navy, some beaked whales washed a shore and they were shown to have bleeding around the brain.

Beaked whales dive deeper than most others whales and that may be the reason that they are more sensitive to mid range sonar.



BENT ARROW, WHAT REALLY HAPPENED ON AUG. 29

2007-09-23T04:25:31.676-05:00

MIS-STEPS

It turns out that the B-52 that flew from Minot AFB with nuclear missiles was supposed to be carrying some obsolete missiles to be destroyed. The problems began at the storage locker where conventional missiles were stored with nuclear ones. The second was that the ordinance handlers didn't notice the nuclear labels on half the missiles the pulled to be loaded or even during the loading process. The pilot made the mistake of signing off on everything without doing a "walk around" which most pilots do, to check if the missiles are secured, check for any damage to the plane and if its clear to move it.

It took almost 24hrs before the mistakes were noticed.



SHE MAY GO TO MIT, BUT SHE'S NOT SMARTER THAN A FIFTH GRADER

2007-09-23T01:39:36.886-05:00

SHIRT

A student from MIT was wearing a hooded sweatshirt with a plastic circuit board with some different color LEDS on it and a battery, She walked up to the information counter at Logan Airport to check on an incoming flight when the lady behind the counter notified security. Shorty, the student was surrounded by security cops with guns drawn.

The student, Star Simpson, said the device was something all the electrical engineering majors were wearing during the week when prespective employers were on campus during career week.



RALLIES- CON'T

2007-09-23T01:11:08.005-05:00

Dennis said...

It's a way to keep Jesse and Al in power

Yeah but who would hold rallies if there were six "good ole boys" beat up a black kid. There would be a lynch mob waiting to hang them, but all because 4oo years ago, Africans were brought here to be slaves, black can get away with anything.



JENA SI X RALLIES

2007-09-21T01:33:32.759-05:00

SIX

I can't believe that they are having rallies in New Orleans and Atlanta backing a group of students that they have labeled the "Jena Six." You know that if it was a black student nearly beat to death by a group of white boys, there would be protest calling for those white boys heads. I think its a way to keep the black majority in New Orleans. Without the Ward 9 area being rebuilt at this time, NO has lost its black majority status.



CONGRESS TO GIVE FDA BROADER POWERS

2007-09-20T01:40:15.033-05:00

RULES

Congress is set to give the FDA more power. One of the new regulations is that pharmaceutical companies will have to pay a new user fee totalling some $225 million over five years. This fee will cover all drug safety tests. Used to be that a drug company would pay a fee only when they submitted a new drug to be tested.

The FDA will also have the power to control the commerical ads of drugs that are out on the market.

After being charged with 10 felonies and originally being held without bail, O.J.'s lawyers managed to get him a bail hearing and he was released on a $125,000 bail. After leaving the courthouse, O.J. was escorted to the airport, where passengers were off loaded until O.J. and his lawyers boarded and took their seats. Then the passengers were allowed to reboard the plane. He flew back to his home in Kendall, FL. A fifth person is being sought in connection for the crimes.



O.J. SIMPSONS ARRESTED, ALONG WITH THREE OTHERS

2007-09-19T01:13:23.046-05:00

SIMPSON

O.J. Simpson, along with 3 other men were arrested in connection with the robbery at a Las Vegas hotel. O.J. could be charged for 11 counts including two counts of first-degree kidnapping with use of a deadly weapon; two counts of robbery with a deadly weapon; and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.

He could received up to 35 years in prison if convicted



ALABAMA PLAN

2007-09-17T00:55:29.720-05:00

DESEGREGATION

A school district in Alabama is using the "No child left behind" law to move black students to schools closer to their neighborhoods. It smacks of desegregation, which has many parents in an uproar. To me, is seems like a way to get parents and others involved in improving those schools. Make repairs, keep drugs and guns out, hire better teachers in those schools. That way black students in black schools will do just as well as white students.



O.J. SIMPSONS ARRESTED, HELD WITHOUT BOND

2008-12-09T07:49:24.281-06:00

ARMED ROBBERY



Even intimidating a witness couldn't keep Simpson from being arrested this time. The memorabilia collector who was robbed at gunpoint of items Simpson said was stolen from him, later recorded a phone call from Simpson trying to get the victim to change his story about guns being involved in the robbery. So another charge of tampering with a witness could be involved. If convicted, Simpson could spend up to 30 years in prison. Maybe he is tired of sleeping of friend's couches or where ever and decided to live off the state for a while. He's become more popular as a criminal than as a football star. He tried acting and sportscasting after he retired from football, but wasn't too successful at either. Only his Avis commercials brought him some success.



O.J. SIMPSON INVOLVED IN ARMED ROBBERY

2007-09-15T02:45:25.649-05:00

SIMPSON

O.J. Simpson was in Las Vegas for a friends wedding when he found out that there was a collecter of memorabilia was in town selling items that O.J. claims were stolen from him. according to the collector, O.J. and four other men broke into his room with guns and took the items O.J. claimed was his.

O.J. was questioned but released. It is not known if charges will be filed against him.



SEPT. 11, SIX YEARS LATER

2007-09-12T03:25:22.851-05:00

BLOOD OF HEROES

Yes I know this shows up as 9/12, but I spent the day listening to stories about 9/11/01. I even watched the replay of the Today Show, that I was watching that morning.

You know, there was a psychologist named Baldura, who claimed that children exposed to violent tv becomes desensitized by it. Well, I'm here to tell you that isn't true for everyone. I grew up in a military family and I've seen more war movies than I can count. But when those towers fell, I cried like a baby. To know that I just saw over 3,000 people die was more than I could handle. And that day, when everyone at first thought it was debris falling from the towers, i knew it was people jumping.

For those who are against the war on terror need to remember what happened six years ago



MEXICAN TRUCK EXPLODES

2007-09-11T00:33:41.458-05:00

MEXICAN TRUCK

A truck carrying 25 metric tons of ANFO, a mixture of ammonium nitrate and fuel oil, exploded in the city of Nadadores, killing 29 people. According to an Army explosives expert, ANFO is used widely in the mining industry. Coahuila is a major mining state. If trucks in Mexico carry such thingss, then all trucks coming from Mexico to make sure its clean.



FBI COLLECTED MORE PHONE RECORDS THAN PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT.\

2007-09-10T01:10:36.389-05:00

FBI

The FBI had originally said they wanted the records of those who they suspected of being in contact with possible terrorist cells, but if turns out that they collected alot more information, even on those who were never suspected of any wrong doing. If I didn't know better I would swear J. Edger Hoover had returned from the dead. During his reign as head of the FBI, he also threw people rights out the window.



THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS

2007-09-10T00:47:02.293-05:00

GUN CONTROL

The District of Columbia is asking the Supreme Court to rule in their favor of banning hand guns in the city. They argue that the Second Amendment applies to the militia or what is now the National Guard. They are also not including in their ban shotguns and rifles. Their claim in will reduce crimes. The problem is that criminals can always find ways to get gun illegally. So, taking handguns away from law abiding citizens will only make them more vunerable to the criminals.



ODESSA POILICE SHOT WHILE RESPONDING TO 911 CALL

2007-09-10T00:18:31.577-05:00

911

The police were responding to a domestic call when the wife came from the house, saying her husband had a gun. When the police tried to enter the front door it was locked, as the came around the back the husband came out shooting, killin both before retreating back into the house for a 4 hr standoff.

I've heard from several former police officers that domestic calls are the worst to respond to. Even though you are there to help, sometimes the one who called will turn around and attack the police for arresting their spouse.
