Hot News-Cracking the Code of Sexual Chemistry and Attraction

ARA) - Our attraction to others may be about having the right chemistry after all. For decades, scientists have studied why humans are attracted to each other and have found that dating and mating is influenced by pheromones, powerful chemicals produced by the body.

Pheromones are natural air-borne chemical hormones the body produces to attract the opposite sex. You can't see them or smell them, yet they can be powerful enough to instantly draw another person in. They are now thought to be the key to the chemistry of "love at first sight."

An effective topical pheromone formula for men has been developed with Dr. Virgil Amend. "Our understanding of the human capacity to sense pheromones, and the nerve pathways that that deliver those signals to the brain, have paved the way to the development of this powerful formulation. Had it not been for this understanding, we would not have known which pheromones, and the exact concentrations to use," explains Amend.

Scientists have known for decades about an organ just inside the nasal cavity called the vomeronasal organ (VNO). It appears that the sole function of the VNO is to detect trace amounts of pheromones, and in turn, to stimulate the limbic region of the brain, also known as the "Seat of Emotions." This area of the brain is responsible for our emotions and passionate desires.

Specialized nerve pathways known as "Nerve O" run directly from the VNO to the limbic region. These specialized nerves were thought to remain dormant the majority of the time, but have now been confirmed to become quite active when subjected to specific human pheromones. The evidence tells us that humans do, in fact, respond to pheromones just as animals do!

A precise concentration of pheromones can kick off a rush of chemicals in the brain within a matter of seconds, and can make people feel a strong emotional and physical response. "The next thing we know, the fireworks begin," says Dr. Amend. "This formulation for men can produce that response, and while the chemical cascade may take mere seconds to occur, the effects can last a lifetime."

"Attraction is all about chemistry" says Amend, "After all, men and women have been hard wired from the beginning for one basic purpose … and that is to reproduce. This formulation for men merely taps into the power of nature's chemistry by triggering the signals women are programmed to sense and respond to".

Developed with Dr. Amend, the "Pheromone Advantage" formulation for men blends the four most powerful pheromones proven to activate the VNO organ in women, and sells for just $39.95 for a two month supply.

"Humans naturally produce their own pheromones." Amend continues, "However, our cultural habits can wash away, distort or hide our natural pheromones with frequent bathing, detergents, antiperspirants, etc. By supplementing with a few drops of the Pheromone Advantage formula, men can not only replace natural levels of these pheromones, but boost levels to the extent that their concentration is unavoidable in their presence."

Stupid News - Ohio students' hotel room doors duct-taped shut

Stupid News - Ohio students' hotel room doors duct-taped shut! Very dumb!

MILLBURY, Ohio - Parents have complained to a northwest Ohio school board that a chaperone sealed students in their hotel rooms with duct tape during a high school choir field trip.

At a heated meeting Monday, Michelle Mata told the Lake Local school board in Millbury that the tactic panicked her son during a recent weekend trip to Chicago.

Sylvia Keeler said she may file charges. Her son, Mark Hummel, said he worried he could be trapped during a fire.

School board president Timothy Krugh (kroo) told parents the tape was meant to keep students safe.

Schools Superintendent Jim Witt said the tape would show if students violated curfew but wouldn't have kept them from escaping in an emergency.

Stupid News - Big, hairy pig attracted gawkers in Wisconsin

Stupid News - Big, hairy pig attracted gawkers in Wisconsin

VIROQUA, Wis. - A steady stream of vehicles pulled along the shoulder of the road to get a look at it: an enormous, hairy pig that apparently had been struck and killed by a vehicle.

"I took a look to see if it had any tusks," Andy Sherry of Viroqua said. "If it did, somebody got to them before I did. It was really a big, big pig."

Large populations of the hard-to-find, feral animals are thought to live in southwestern Wisconsin.

The animal was found on the highway five miles south of Viroqua 61 Friday morning. It appeared to have been dragged from the center of the road, and it had a severe head wound.

Vernon County chief deputy Jim Hanson said a semi driver hit the 450- to 500-pound sow early Friday and apparently didn't have reportable damage. He said a removal company took care of the carcass.

"It's not a real common occurrence," he said.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources considers feral pigs an exotic species that poses a threat to the environment and to agriculture. Anyone with a small-game license is allowed to hunt them at any time of the year.

Stupid News -Be like Britney and learn to buckle down

Stupid News -Be like Britney and learn to buckle down

Unreal! Britney Spears has been spending $5.3 Million Dollars A Month!

The singer has cut her spending after blowing through $61 million last year
By Dayana Yochim

The Hollywood haters sometimes get it all wrong, like they did with that whole Miley Cyrus-Vanity Fair photo shoot business. They turned what was clearly a public service campaign for regular melanoma screenings into something much, much more unseemly.

Now they're picking on Britney Spears for her recently disclosed $61 million in annual expenses during 2007.

I know what you're thinking, because it's exactly what I thought, too: I can't believe that Britney Spears actually knows how much she spent in 2007!

That's right: Britney Spears apparently keeps track of her spending better than most of us.

When you review this latest financial disclosure, as well as previously released public documents about her finances — breaking down her major expenditures into more manageable monthly spending chunks — it becomes clear that Britney's accounting system was far more detailed than the average American's:

Clothing $16,000
Commuting (incl. airfare) $102,000
Alimony/Child Support $35,000
Medical $86,000
Misc. $5 million
Total monthly expenditure $5.239 million

Instead of celebrating Britney's eagle-eyed bookkeeping, the press (and a lot of people with MySpace blogs and some extra time on their hands) got all judgmental and then condemned her reaction to the scrutiny. (Seriously, like you wouldn't go all kinds of crazy, too, if your monthly spending habits — those late-night fast food outings, prescription co-pays, bi-weekly lip waxings, girls nights out, and, uh, whatever it is she spent $5 million a month on — were trotted out in public?)

Britney buckles down
The truth is that since last year, Britney has buckled down. She's practically the poster child for fiscal restraint.

An insider recently revealed to InTouch Online that today Britney's spending is one-fifth of what it was before. That's right: Britney slashed her budget by a whopping 80 percent:

fact file Britney's new monthly budget*

Clothing $3,200
Commuting (incl. airfare) $20,400
Alimony/Child Support $7,000
Medical $17,200
Misc. $1 million
Total monthly expenditure $1.048 million

Talk about tightening the proverbial belt (since actual belts aren't in this season) — and this from someone who already shopped at Wal-Mart and was perfectly content with Cheetos, Pepsi and her baby sister's hand-me-up clothes (even if they were a tad on the clingy side).

If she keeps it up, in no time Britney will be back on Forbes magazine's list of richest female entertainers in the world, which at one time estimated her worth at $100 million. (Her lawyer, according to Life & Style, reports that Ms. Spears' net worth today is just $40 million.)

Be more like Britney
Of course, everyone wants to know how she did it. And therein lies the brilliance of the Britney brand — her ability to turn turmoil into a "teaching moment." Let's see what Britney can teach us about cutting the financial fat:

Slash transportation costs: With a tank of gasoline rivaling the cost of a decent mani-pedi, getting to and from work every day becomes a significant lifestyle choice. Britney made a Big Statement (both about our reliance of foreign oil and the environment) when she chose to cancel her tour for her new album, "Blackout." (Brilliant title, by the way.) Critics say the move cost her $50 million in forgone paydays. But did they bother to calculate how much she and her touring crew actually saved in gas? In fact, this big eco-conscious statement overshadowed smaller ones she regularly makes to cut down on her spending at the pump and personal carbon emissions by hitching a ride with her Pops or the paparazzi.
Cut your housing costs: Housing costs account for a big portion of the average American's budget. The Britney answer? Take in a renter! By opening her heart and spare bedrooms to her father, she helped make her monthly mortgage payment a lot less daunting.
Slash discretionary spending: Everyone's got their own version of the daily latte — that seemingly innocent everyday treat that slowly but surely eats into your overall net worth. Britney's "latte" has never been culinary in nature. (In fact, she's publicly championed cost-effective meals at KFC, Taco Bell, and the like.) No, Britney's financial Achilles heel was on her head. She really took a bite out of her spending by ditching those pricey Hollywood hair stylists and going with a chrome dome. No more expensive weaves and frizz-fighting products.
Get free babysitting: Every parent knows that the costs of childrearing are killer. Besides paying for a college education and outfitting a $130,000 home nursery, there's the issue of finding reasonable childcare when you need it. Britney's response to this everywoman issue was to consolidate her children's care under one household — her ex-husband's. As she's gotten her finances together, however, she has stated publicly that she can now afford to take on a larger portion of child-care costs, perhaps because of her new lucrative side gig...
Turn your trash into treasure: What can you get for discarded hairpins, random playing cards, old lipsticks, perfume packaging, and rusty used razors?: $122.50. That's what the contents of Britney's trash can went for when they were recently put up for auction on eBay. Not a bad fallback gig when your world tour is canceled, eh?
So before you take out your own trash, ask yourself: What would I do if I had to cut my spending by 80 percent? Answer: Be a little bit more like Britney every day.

Stupid News - Parents want to flush N.C. school's potty policy
This is incredibly stupid, people are idiots!

BURGAW, N.C. - Going potty without a partner can lead to punishment for students at a Burgaw elementary school, but parents want the policy flushed.

The Star-News of Wilmington reported that students at Malpass Corner Elementary School can't use the bathroom alone because of an ongoing graffiti problem. A letter to parents from the principal says students can go to the bathroom as a class or in pairs.

Students who go to the bathroom when they aren't supposed to are punished with a silent lunch. They must sit at a table and eat lunch alone without talking.

Parent Jaime Whitmore describes the policy as "cruel and unusual punishment." Some parents are organizing to get the policy changed.

JONESBORO, Ark. - Police say DNA found on a half-eaten candy bar helped them zero in on a robbery suspect.

Detective Jason Simpkins says Brian D. Bass' DNA matched the sample found on the bar left on the counter at Cato Animal Hospital during a January robbery. Bass was being held in jail Friday on $50,000 bond.

Bass was on probation after he served time on a firearms possession charge. Simpkins said the state had his DNA on file.

Police say Bass is facing felony commercial burglary and theft charges. The public defender's office says Bass, 39, doesn't have an attorney yet.

Woman sentenced for having son dress up as Scout
EASTON, Pa. - A former Bethlehem woman will serve up to 23 months in prison for having her 7-year-old son dress as a Cub Scout to collect money for a nonexistent cause.

Sally Ann Gombocz, 51, told a Northampton County judge she wanted to apologize to anyone she hurt. She previously pleaded guilty to theft by deception and corruption of a minor.

Gombocz had her son dress as a scout in 2003 and tell people he was raising money for a camping trip. A prosecutor says the family collected $69.

Gombocz was sentenced Friday to six to 23 months in the county jail. She also was fined $2,000, ordered to perform community service, take parenting classes, have psychological counseling and submit to random urine screens. She also must pay restitution.

This Sucks - Artificial butter chemical harmful to lungs

I hope this isn't true! What is left to eat that doesn't kill us?

Artificial butter chemical harmful to lungs

A new study shows that exposure to a chemical called diacetyl, a component of artificial butter flavoring, can be harmful to the nose and airways of mice. Researchers at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), part of the National Institutes of Health, conducted the study because diacetyl has been implicated in causing obliterative bronchiolitis (OB) in humans. OB is a debilitating but rare lung disease, which has been detected recently in workers who inhale significant concentrations of the flavoring in microwave popcorn packaging plants.

When laboratory mice inhaled diacetyl vapors for three months, they developed lymphocytic bronchiolitis - a potential precursor of OB. None of the mice, however, were diagnosed with OB.

This is one of the first studies to evaluate the respiratory toxicity of diacetyl at levels relevant to human health. Mice were exposed to diacetyl at concentrations and durations comparable to what may be inhaled at some microwave popcorn packaging plants, said Daniel L. Morgan, Ph.D., head of the Respiratory Toxicology Group at the NIEHS and co-author on the paper that appears online in the journal, Toxicological Sciences. The study was done in collaboration with Duke University researchers.

The authors conclude that these findings suggest that workplace exposure to diacetyl contributes to the development of OB in humans, but more studies are needed.........

Stupid News - One cannabis joint equal to up to 5 cigarettes

Well maybe healthy news, but how many french fries equal one Joint? I bet ya more people are dying from over eating bad food than pot!

Here is the story anyway-

A single cannabis joint has the same effect on the lungs as smoking up to five cigarettes in one go, indicates research published ahead of print in the journal Thorax.

The scientists base their findings on 339 adults up to the age of 70, selected from a research study that's ongoing of respiratory health, and categorised into four different groups.

These comprised those who smoked only cannabis, equivalent to at least one joint a day for five years; those who smoked tobacco only, equivalent to a pack of cigarettes a day for at least a year; those who smoked both; and those who did not smoke either cannabis or tobacco.

All the participants had high definition x-ray scans (computed tomography) taken of their lungs and they took special breathing tests designed to assess how well their lungs worked.

They were also questioned about their smoking habits.

Seventy five people smoked only cannabis, and 91 smoked both. Eighty one people did not smoke either, and 92 smoked only tobacco.

Combined smokers tended to use less tobacco, the findings showed.

Cannabis smokers complained of wheeze, cough, chest tightness and phlegm. But emphysema, the progressive and crippling lung disease, was only seen in those who smoked tobacco, either alone or in combination.........

OTTAWA (Reuters) - A Canadian man who asked his lover to carve a heart-shaped symbol on his chest during a rough sex game almost died when she accidentally pressed too hard and punctured his heart, a newspaper said on Thursday.

The Winnipeg Free Press said the 25-year-old woman had been sentenced to three years' probation after she pleaded guilty to assaulting the man in February 2007.

The 24-year-old man was initially given little chance of survival but made a full recovery and is backing the woman. Both had been drinking heavily and engaging in rough sex when he asked the woman to carve the symbol, the paper said.

Stupid News - Pair say they attacked each other with frying pan

CROSSVILLE, Tenn. - Out of the frying pan and into the fire. That's pretty much what happened to a Cumberland County couple arrested and charged with whacking each other with a frying pan.

Heather and Samuel Newcome are both charged with domestic assault. They told Sheriff's Deputy Timothy Tutor last week that they got into an argument and hit each other with the cookware.

"Both parties had injuries consistent with both of their stories," Tutor says in his report.

Other family members got involved in the fray as well and apparently came to blows, but none decided to file charges.

Tutor took Heather Newcome the Cumberland County Justice Center, where she was charged, then took out a warrant on her husband, who later turned himself in.

The two are scheduled to appear Monday in General Sessions Court.

BISHOPVILLE, S.C. - DNA testing has shown an attack on a family van some blamed on the legendary Lizard Man appears to have been actually done by a domestic dog. Something chewed up the front fender of Bob and Dixie Rawson's van in February. Bite marks were left on the wheel wells and blood was found on the vehicle.
The Item of Sumter reported that a veterinary lab in California tested the blood and found it came from a dog.

But Bob Rawson isn't sure, saying it would have to be one big dog.

Lee County Sheriff E.J. Melvin isn't convinced either. He thinks it was a coyote or wolf.

Lizard Man became a phenomenon in the area 20 years ago when people began reporting a tall, big-eyed swamp creature. Authorities never figured out exactly what prompted the sightings.

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - A Malaysian woman woke up to a real-life nightmare, discovering that the naked man who had slipped into her bed in the middle of the night was a thief, not her husband, a newspaper said on Tuesday.

The 36-year-old housewife was asleep when the thief, noticing that her husband was fast asleep on the couch, quietly stripped off and lay down beside her, the Star newspaper said, quoting a police report filed in the eastern state of Terengganu.

The dozing woman's suspicions were raised when she spoke to him and his voice sounded strange, the paper said.

"She then went to another room and found her husband fast asleep on the couch. That's when she screamed, causing the thief to flee by leaping out the window together with the stolen items," it added.

Stupid News - 'Darth Vader' spared jail in Jedi church attacks

Stupid News - 'Darth Vader' spared jail in Jedi church attacks
HOLYHEAD, Wales - A man who dressed up as Darth Vader, wearing a garbage bag for a cape, and assaulted the founders of a group calling itself the Jedi church was given a suspended sentence Tuesday.

Arwel Wynne Hughes, 27, attacked Jedi church founder Barney Jones — aka Master Jonba Hehol — with a metal crutch, hitting him on the head, prosecutors told Holyhead Magistrates' Court.

He also whacked Jones' 18-year-old cousin, Michael Jones — known as Master Mormi Hehol — bruising his thigh in the March 25 incident, prosecutors said.

The two cousins and Barney Jones' brother, Daniel, set up the Church of Jediism, Anglesey order, last year. Jedi is the faith followed by some of the central characters in the "Star Wars" films.

The group, which claims about 30 members, says on its Web site that it uses "insight and knowledge" from the films as "a guide to living a better and more worthwhile life."

"We all love the films and what they stand for. Obviously some people are going to laugh about it," the Wales on Sunday newspaper quoted Barney Jones as saying last month. "But a lot of people do take it seriously."

Unfortunately for Hughes, his March attack was recorded on a video camera that the cousins had set up to film themselves in a light saber battle.

"Darth Vader! Jedis!" Hughes shouted as he approached.

Hughes claimed he couldn't remember the incident, having drunk the better part of a 2 1/2-gallon (10-liter) box of wine beforehand.

"He knows his behavior was wrong and didn't want it to happen but he has no recollection of it," said Hughes' lawyer, Frances Jones.

District Judge Andrew Shaw sentenced Hughes to two months in jail but suspended the sentence for one year. He also ordered Hughes to pay $195 to each of his victims and $117 in court costs.

In the 2001 United Kingdom census, 390,000 — 0.7 percent of the population — listed Jedi as their religion.

Stupid News - An immigrant family left a 23-month-old boy in the Vancouver airport

This is Stupid News about some Stupid People!

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - An immigrant family left a 23-month-old boy in the Vancouver airport and learned he was missing only when contacted during the next leg of the trip.
Jun Parreno, the boy's father, told The Vancouver Sun the mix-up occurred Monday as he, his wife and two grandparents of the child, J.M., were scrambling between their arrival in Canada and a connecting flight to Winnipeg on Air Canada.

Running late after having to unpack and repack all their luggage, "we had 10 minutes before boarding," said Parreno, who was emigrating with his family from the Philippines. "We were running for the gate."

He said he thought his son was with the three other adults, who were running to the gate ahead of him, and they thought the little boy was with him.

Instead, in a scenario similar to the movie "Home Alone," the toddler was wandering alone between a security checkpoint and the flight gates, said Angela Mah, an Air Canada representative.

"We were called by (security) who told us one of the security people had a toddler in tow," Mah said. "He doesn't speak English, so we found a Tagalog-speaking agent who has been looking after him."

There was no boarding pass for the youngster because he did not have a separately assigned seat, so there was no indication in the airline's computer system that someone had missed a flight, nor had there been any panicked calls from anyone on a flight missing a child, Mah said.

That's because the family was scattered in different parts of the plane to Winnipeg and still didn't know the child had been left.

Air Canada staff began checking flights that had left, and "we eventually determined who his parents might be ... and the flight crew talked to them," Mah said. "They didn't realize until then that the baby had been left behind.

"We're not aware of this ever happening on an Air Canada flight before."

The parents were put into telephone contact with the little boy, and Parreno was put on another Air Canada plane to return to Vancouver to get him after the family's flight arrived in Winnipeg with the airline covering the cost of the two additional flights, she said.

Parreno had tears in his eyes when he returned to Winnipeg holding his son.

"I am relieved everything is OK ... but I was shocked," he said. "The staff at Air Canada took good care of him."

Australian swimmer recovers after shark attack

Australian swimmer recovers after shark attack
CTV.ca News Staff

An Australian man is recovering in hospital after being attacked by a shark while swimming in far southwestern Australia.

Jason Cull said he saw a shadow under the surface of the water, but thought it was a dolphin.

When the shark pulled him under on Saturday by grabbing a leg, he fought for his life.

"I felt along it, I found its eye and I poked it in the eye, and that's when it let go," the 37-year-old told reporters from his hospital bed in Albany on Sunday.

Albany is about 400 kilometres southwest of Perth.

Tom Marron, a spokesman for local surf lifesavers, said the attack occurred at Middleton Beach.

Beachgoers noticed three sharks on Saturday, estimating their size at up to five metres. Marron suspected the shark that attacked Cull was a white pointer.

Volunteer lifesaver Joanne Lucas went into the water to rescue Cull, he said.

"She heard the cries and splashing and knew they needed assistance and just went straight in," Marron said.

"She got hold of the injured swimmer and brought him back to shore," he said. "There was a fairly comprehensive mauling of his left leg, lost a lot of his calf, severe lacerations."

The beach has been closed.

Australia experiences about 15 shark attacks per year in its waters, one of the highest rates in the world.

On average, however, just over one per year is fatal.

A 16-year-old surfer died in April after a shark attack on Australia's eastern coast.

Stupid News - CLAREMONT, Calif. - Indiana Jones better get his alibi ready

Stupid NEws - CLAREMONT, Calif. - Indiana Jones better get his alibi ready.
A large crystal skull similar to those at the center of the upcoming Harrison Ford movie was recently stolen from a New Age store, puzzling employees in part because of the laid-back nature of shop regulars.

"We have zero shoplifting in here, and I have no idea why anyone would take something as lovely as that," said Persis Newland, owner of Kindred Spirits in Claremont, about 30 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.

The skull, named Solar Ray by owner Don Marr, had been on loan at Kindred Spirits for about four months and went missing about two weeks ago. It had sat on an altar in the store's classroom area and was considered one of the shop's prized objects.

"He was on an altar, and he just enjoyed being here," said employee Kristen Nestor, who supervises the store's weekly crystal-reading classes. "He participated in our classes.

Nestor said she believes the skull is as old as 500 years.

"He likes to travel and things like that," Nestor said. "He was here for about four months, just enjoying everyone who comes through here."

Marr filed a police report on the missing skull last week, but police have had no luck so far.

Legend has it that the ancient Maya possessed 13 crystal skulls which, when united, hold the power of saving the Earth. Some version of the story is the basis for "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," which opens in U.S. theaters on May 22.

Hundreds of crystal skulls are believed to be in existence, which experts dismiss as fakes made by antiquities traders in the 19th century. All the same, believers say the skulls have powers to heal and influence natural events.

Newland believes the attention the film has focused on the skulls may have prompted the theft.

"Someone must have thought about it in that term, connected with the movie or something," Newland said. "I have no idea why someone would take that and not the other things that are equally valuable on the altar."

Death toll in China earthquake rises to 8,533

Death toll in China earthquake rises to 8,533

By CHRISTOPHER BODEEN, Associated Press Writer
12 minutes ago

CHONGQING, China - A massive earthquake struck central China on Monday, killing more than 8,500 people, trapping nearly 900 students under the rubble of their school and spilling ammonia from a chemical plant, state media reported.

The 7.8-magnitude earthquake was among the worst to strike China in decades, devastating a hilly region of small cities and towns in Sichuan and nearby provinces. The official Xinhua News Agency said 8,533 people died in Sichuan and dozens of other deaths were reported elsewhere.

Xinhua said 80 percent of the buildings had collapsed in Beichuan county in Sichuan province after the quake, raising fears the overall death toll could increase sharply.

A chemical plant collapsed in Shifang city, to the northeast of the quake's epicenter, burying hundreds of people and sending more than 80 tons of toxic liquid ammonia leaking from the site, state media reported.

The earthquake sent thousands of people rushing out of buildings and into the streets hundreds of miles away in Beijing and Shanghai. The temblor was felt as far away as Pakistan, Vietnam and Thailand.

The quake posed a challenge to a government already grappling with discontent over high inflation and a widespread uprising among Tibetans in western China while trying to prepare for the Beijing Olympics this August.

It hit about 60 miles northwest of Chengdu in the middle of the afternoon when classrooms and office towers were full. There were several smaller aftershocks, the U.S. Geological Survey said on its Web site.

The temblor struck hilly country leading up to the Tibetan highlands, toppling buildings in small cities and towns in the largely rural area. About 1,200 pandas — 80 percent of the surviving wild population in China — live in several mountainous areas of Sichuan.

The earthquake occurred in an area with numerous fault lines that have triggered destructive temblor before. A magnitude 7.5 earthquake in Diexi, Sichuan that hit on August 25, 1933 killed more than 9,300 people.

Xinhua said 50 bodies had been pulled from the debris of the school building in Juyuan town but did not say if the children were alive. Xinhua reported students also were buried under five other toppled schools in Deyang city.

Xinhua said its reporters saw buried teenagers struggling to break loose from underneath the rubble of the three-story building in Juyuan "while others were crying out for help."

Two girls were quoted by Xinhua as saying they escaped because they had "run faster than others."

Photos showed heavy cranes trying to remove rubble from the ruined school. Other photos posted on the Internet and found on the Chinese search engine Baidu showed arms and a torso sticking out of the rubble of the school as dozens of people worked to free them, using their hands to move concrete slabs.

Calls into the city did not go through as panicked residents quickly overloaded the telephone system. The quake affected telephone and power networks, and even state media appeared to have few details of the disaster.

"In Chengdu, mobile telecommunication convertors have experienced jams and thousands of servers were out of service," said Sha Yuejia, deputy chief executive officer of China Mobile.

Although it was difficult to telephone Chengdu, an Israeli student, Ronen Medzini, sent a text message to The Associated Press saying there were power and water outages there.

"Traffic jams, no running water, power outs, everyone sitting in the streets, patients evacuated from hospitals sitting outside and waiting," he said.

Xinhua said an underground water pipe ruptured near the city's southern railway station, flooding a main thoroughfare. Reporters saw buildings with cracks in their walls but no collapses, Xinhua said.

The earthquake also rattled buildings in Beijing, some 930 miles to the north, less than three months before the Chinese capital was expected to be full of hundreds of thousands of foreign visitors for the Summer Olympics.

Many Beijing office towers were evacuated, including the building housing the media offices for the organizers of the Olympics, which start in August. None of the Olympic venues was damaged.

"I've lived in Taipei and California and I've been through quakes before. This is the most I've ever felt," said James McGregor, a business consultant who was inside the LG Towers in Beijing's business district. "The floor was moving underneath me."

In Fuyang, 660 miles to the east, chandeliers in the lobby of the Buckingham Palace Hotel swayed. "We've never felt anything like this our whole lives," said a hotel employee surnamed Zhu.

Patients at the Fuyang People's No. 1 Hospital were evacuated. An hour after the quake, a half-dozen patients in blue-striped pajamas stood outside the hospital. One was laying on a hospital bed in the parking lot.

Skyscrapers in Shanghai swayed and most office occupants went rushing into the streets.

In the Taiwanese capital of Taipei, 100 miles off the southeastern Chinese coast, buildings swayed when the quake hit. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

The quake was felt as far away as the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi, where some people hurried out of swaying office buildings and into the streets downtown. A building in the Thai capital of Bangkok also was evacuated after the quake was felt there.

A magnitude 7.8 earthquake is considered a major event, capable of causing widespread damage and injuries in populated areas.

The last serious earthquake in China was in 2003, when a 6.8-magnitude quake killed 268 people in Bachu county in the west of Xinjiang.

China's deadliest earthquake in modern history struck the northeastern city of Tangshan on July 28, 1976, killing 240,000 people.

STupid News - Hundreds strip for naked photo shoot in Austria

Stupid News - Hundreds strip for naked photo shoot in Austria
VIENNA, Austria - The man behind the camera had three requests for his subjects: no sunglasses, no smiling, and no underwear.
The latest work by New York photographer Spencer Tunick gathered 1,840 people, baring it all in Austria's Happel Stadium on Sunday.

"Stay very still. Don't move," the Austria Press Agency quoted Tunick as telling the crowd as he went to work.

Much of the hours-long photo shoot had little to do with soccer, with naked volunteers assuming different poses at the behest of the artist. But at least one of the photos had them with the ball, men first and then the women.

The stadium will host seven of the Euro 2008 soccer championship matches being staged by Austria and Switzerland, including the June 29 final.

Tunick has made a name for himself with his works featuring hundreds of naked people at unusual venues. He described Sunday's shooting on his Web site as combining "the spirit of sports, the grand sweeping waves of stadium architecture and the abstract relation of the human form to modern structures."

Stupid News - Chicago students seek Obama's haircut, speedy spud, Weird Al

CHICAGO - Dozens of students from the University of Chicago returned Sunday from a four-day multistate trek dubbed the world's largest scavenger hunt after trying to find Barack Obama's haircut and a car horn that plays "La Cucaracha," among other things.

The list of 269 items includes having "a Nobel Prize winner or 'Weird Al' Yankovic witness your organ donor registration" and trying to get "Obama's haircut at Obama's barbershop."

Teams get points for the items they bring back to campus, tasks they complete or questions they answer correctly. The scavenger hunt, in its 22nd year, includes a road trip as far as 1,000 miles from Chicago.

"This allows us to take another kind of brain power and put it into frivolous, trivial but completely enjoyable tasks," said senior David Pisano, 21.

Winners had not been posted as of late Sunday for this year's challenges, which included having "a potato break the sound barrier" and finding "a disgruntled beekeeper."

Some participants headed to Las Vegas in search of celebrities to photograph, while others contemplated weaving a basket underwater, building a working light bulb from scratch, or locating or constructing a bust of Abraham Lincoln made out of pennies.

In 2000, the list called for a live elephant, which students were able to procure for judging.

Happy Mother's Day: Woman pregnant with 18th child

By JILL ZEMAN, Associated Press Writer
1 minute ago

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - It's a happy Mother's Day for an Arkansas woman — she's pregnant with her 18th child. Michelle Duggar, 41, is due on New Year's Day, and the latest addition will join seven sisters and 10 brothers. There are two sets of twins.
"We've had three in January, three in December. Those two months are a busy time for us," she said, laughing.

The Duggars' oldest child, Josh, is 20, and the youngest, Jennifer, is nine months old.

The fast-growing family lives in Tontitown in northwest Arkansas in a 7,000-square-foot home. All the children — whose names start with the letter J — are home-schooled.

Duggar has been been pregnant for more than 11 years of her life, and the family is in the process of filming another series for Discovery Health.

The new show looks at life inside the Duggar home, where chores — or "jurisdictions" — are assigned to each child. One episode of the new show involves a "jurisdiction swap," where the boys do chores traditionally assigned to the girls, and vice versa, Duggar said.

"The girls swapped jurisdictions, changing tires, working in the garages, mowing the grass," she said. "The boys got to cook supper from start to finish, clean the bathrooms," among other chores.

Duggar said she's six weeks along and the pregnancy is going well. She and her husband, Jim Bob Duggar, said they'll keep having children as long as God wills it.

"The success in a family is first off, a love for God, and secondly, treating each other like you want to be treated," Jim Bob Duggar said. "Our goal is for each one of our children to be best friends, and everybody working together to serve each other makes that happen."

The other Duggar children, in between Joshua and Jennifer, are Jana, 18; John-David, 18; Jill, 16; Jessa, 15; Jinger, 14; Joseph, 13; Josiah, 11; Joy-Anna, 10; Jeremiah, 9; Jedidiah, 9; Jason, 7; James, 6; Justin, 5; Jackson, 3; and Johannah, 2.

Stupid News - Texas Teens Used Human Skull For A Bong

Stupid News - HOUSTON - Three teenagers were arrested after two of them told police they dug up a secluded grave north of Houston, removed the skull from the coffin and converted it into a marijuana bong.

Police found a grave in the city of Humble that had been disturbed, but were still investigating the rest of the teens' story, Houston police Sgt. John Chomiak said.

Kevin Wade Jones, 17, and Matthew Richard Gonzalez, 17, both of Kingwood, were arrested Wednesday night and were being held on misdemeanor charges of abuse of a corpse, Chomiak said. The juvenile was referred to the Harris County juvenile justice system.

A woman who answered the phone at Gonzalez's home declined comment. A telephone number for Jones could not immediately be found, and it wasn't clear from court records if either had an attorney.

Police were interviewing Jones about the use of a stolen debit card when he told them about the grave theft, which purportedly occurred around March 15, according to court documents. Asked why Jones would volunteer such a story, Chomiak said, "We can only speculate and guess to what goes on in the criminal mind."

Gonzalez confirmed the story to investigators in a follow-up interview. Police were led to a heavily wooded site in Humble where they found a knocked-over headstone and water-filled hole more than 4 feet deep. At the time, the muddy water did not allow police to see if the coffin had been disturbed.

"They dug into this gravesite and that was enough to warrant the abuse of corpse charge," Chomiak said. "There has to be further investigation into the actual gravesite."

Police believe the grave is that of an 11-year-old boy who died in 1921. Preliminary reports indicate it was part of a 19th-century veterans cemetery, Chomiak said. While residents in the area knew of the cemetery's existence, it did not appear to be maintained.

Crazy News-2nd Granddaughter of Minnesota Powerball Winners Tested For Krabbe Disease

This is crazy and sad.

2nd Granddaughter of Minnesota Powerball Winners Tested For Krabbe Disease
Baby Allison gets tested for Krabbe disease

MINNEAPOLIS -- Powerball winners Paul and Sue Rosenau, of Waseca, Minnesota, lost their granddaughter to Krabbe disease five years ago.The Rosenaus have been active in raising awareness for Krabbe disease, and the attention and newly-won millions will only help their cause.

“It’s fairly overwhelming because you have family and friends kind of coming out of the woodwork,” the Rosenaus’ daughter, Stacy, said. “We feel blessed that we have been given this and we hope that people see that we are going to use it for a greater good.”

Stacy’s first daughter, Makayla, was born with Krabbe’s -- a degenerative genetic disorder that attacks the nervous system. When treatments didn’t help, the disease ultimately took her life at the age of 2.

“Once she had died, it was like we had to learn to live again,” Stacy said.
Makayla died May 4, five years ago. Coincidentally, it was the same day Paul and Sue Rosenau held the winning Powerball ticket worth $180.1 million.

“We believe in a little divine intervention,” Paul Rosenau said.

The Rosenaus opted for an $88 million lump sum worth about $60 million after taxes

“Now we can leave a legacy for Makayla,” Stacy said.

Krabbe Disease is hereditary, leaving the family with concern over Stacy’s second daughter, Allison, who was born last week. Today, Allison will be tested for the same gene.

“We love her dearly, but our hearts on the line as far as if she’s healthy,” Stacy said.

Stupid News---Non-stick chewing gum firm raises $20 million

Stupid News---Non-stick chewing gum firm raises $20 million

LONDON (Reuters Life!) - A British company developing a non-stick chewing gum that can be easily removed from pavements and shoes has raised 10 million pounds ($20 million) to help bring its product to market.

The new financing comes from institutional and private investors, with IP Group -- an early backer -- chipping in an additional 800,000 pounds, the firm said on Wednesday.

Revolymer's new Clean Gum is the result of polymer research at the University of Bristol, where the company was created as a research spin-out in 2005.

Today's chewing gums are made from synthetic latex, which is resistant to the weather and is strongly adhesive. Clean Gum adds a special polymer to modify its properties, making it far less sticky.

Stupid News - When diamonds become girls' worst friends

Stupid News
When diamonds become girls' worst friends

By Jill Serjeant
Tue May 6, 12:01 PM ET

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Diamonds may be forever. But what's a girl to do when she gets dumped or divorced and those rings, necklaces and love gifts lose their emotional sparkle?

Help is just a click away on new Web sites that provide an outlet for selling jewelry from past relationships, sharing break-up stories and helping broken hearts heal.

"You go through a divorce. What do you do with that ring? Maybe you have a child you can pass it on to. Maybe you don't. It just sits there," said Marie Perry, who with her stepdaughter Megahn Perry runs www.exboyfriendjewelry.com.

"We wanted to create a platform in the community where people can get in contact with others with similar needs," Perry told Reuters.

Three months after its launch with the slogan "You Don't Want It. He Can't Have It Back," the Web site has 3,000 registered users and more than 600 postings of rings, bracelets and earrings for sale -- all with a personal tale attached.

"Studs from a Dud," rites one woman, selling a pair of cubic zirconia earrings given to her three years ago. Six months later, she says, the boyfriend dumped her over the phone -- while she was recovering from brain surgery.

"Oops," writes another, selling a white gold wedding band. "Hey, Mom and Dad, remember that time I got married really young? Sorry about that. I can't pay you back for the wedding, but I'll split whatever I get for these with you. Deal?"

"We wanted to keep the tone fun and tongue in cheek. There are some bitter women but most stories are really light-hearted although a few are about people who have been in an abusive situation. But now they are ready to move on," said Perry.

The idea was born when Megahn Perry, a Los Angeles actress and writer, was looking for a safe, reliable place to sell a wedding set after an amicable divorce and realized others might have boyfriend jewelry languishing in drawers or with attendant memories that make them too painful to wear.

The local pawn shop proved an unattractive option, and Ebay felt too anonymous. So she teamed up with her stepmother Marie, researched the market and found a gap in it.

New Orleans students, Allison Wasserman and Elizabeth Rothbeind, set up a similar venture, www.Ex-cessories.com, in April after a teary afternoon sorting out photographs, jewelry and other mementos of an ex-boyfriend.

With the motto "Don't Get Mad - Break Even," it offers independent appraisals of jewelry, matches buyers with sellers, and provides a social network.

Although aimed at women, the Web sites welcome men.

"Some men thought it was going to be another male-bashing site but that's not what we're trying to do," said Perry.

But she admits the "He Can't Have It Back" slogan has rankled some who believe jewelry should be returned to the giver. "Etiquette says that if the engagement is broken off, you should absolutely give the ring back. But sometimes the man says no, and sometimes it depends on circumstances," she said.

As one woman posting a diamond ring for $3,500 wrote:

"Beautiful ring came with the wrong man. Decided to sell to regain the money that I spent finishing payments on the ring that my ex didn't."

Stupid News - Ill. man seeks to reclaim continuous exercise record

NAPERVILLE, Ill. - Until last summer, 50-year-old George Hood of Aurora held the world record for continuous exercise by a human being — 111 hours, 11 minutes and 11 seconds on a stationary bicycle.
Then his record was broken by another cyclist from Tasmania.

Now Hood wants to be the record-holder again by cycling on a spin bike for more than 132 hours straight, and raising $50,000 for the YMCA's Spin for Kids event.

The retired Drug Enforcement Agency investigator began his attempt Sunday night at the Fry Family YMCA in Naperville. He is projected to finish on the morning of May 11.

Stupid News - Gas price protest singer arrested at convenience store AP

VALPARAISO, Ind. - A man with a guitar and a megaphone climbed atop a convenience store roof to serenade commuters with his musical protest about high gasoline prices — until police halted the impromptu concert.

Once atop the roof of the Family Express store, and above pumps dispensing fuel at $3.78 per gallon, Jay Weinberg, 29, performed his ditty called "Price Gouge'n."

Dozens of supporters chanted: "I can't afford it. I'm banging on my dashboard. I can't believe they think I'm a fool."

The performance lasted about 15 minutes before three Valparaiso police officers arrived and arrested Weinberg on charges of criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct. Police said Weinberg was cooperative.

The crowd, made up of Weinberg's friends and other people who just happened to be pumping gas, continued singing. Then some, including his wife, Danielle, drove to Porter County Jail to bail him out. Weinberg left the building around 7:30 p.m and was greeted with cheers.

BREMERTON, Wash. - It was the odor of chocolate on the suspect's breath that gave away a 15-year-old boy accused of shoplifting candy bars in Bremerton. An officer responding to the shoplifting report Friday night caught up with the suspect on a bicycle.

First he denied taking candy bars, but the officer could smell an odor of chocolate and called witnesses who identified the boy.

He confessed and said he was hungry and did it for the thrill.

Stupid News - Police: Texas man trying to cash $360 billion check arrested

Police: Texas man trying to cash $360 billion check arrested "DUUUHHH"

FORT WORTH, Texas - Charles Ray Fuller must have been planning one big record company.

The 21-year-old North Texas man was arrested last week for trying to cash a $360 billion check, saying he wanted to start a record business, authorities said. Tellers at the Fort Worth bank were immediately suspicious — perhaps the 10 zeros on a personal check tipped them off, according to investigators.

Fuller, of suburban Crowley, was arrested on a forgery charge, police said. He was released after posting $3,750 bail.

Fuller said his girlfriend's mother gave him the check to start a record business, but bank employees who contacted the account's owner said the woman told them she did not give him permission to take or cash the check, according to police.

In addition to forgery, Fuller was charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon and possessing marijuana, Fort Worth police Lt. Paul Henderson said.

Officers reported finding less than 2 ounces of marijuana and a .25-caliber handgun and magazine in his pockets, police said.

Fuller couldn't be located for comment by The Associated Press on Friday because there were no phone listings for him in the Fort Worth area.
