on the suffering of drivers stuck in a 11day gridlock

It all started when the Beijing-Tibet Highway was shut down for repairs on August 13th. Disgruntled truck drivers detoured over to the National Expressway 110, causing what soon became a gridlock like no other.

The traffic now covers over 62 miles and includes hundreds of bored, stranded drivers; the remnants of auto accidents galore; and a slew of abandoned or broken-down vehicles. During a good day, a driver might be able to move his or her vehicle a bit over a mile—though even that is an unlikely scenario.”

About 3,200 Mexican federal police have been fired since May for failing to do their work or being linked to corruption, Federal Police Commissioner Facundo Rosas said Monday.

Of those, 465 have been charged with crimes.

In addition, Rosas said at a news conference, another 1,020 officers face disciplinary proceedings for failing confidence exams.

In New York City, an advertising executive recently handed over her American Express Platinum Card to a homeless Manhattan man after he had asked her for change. The man, who had been without home after losing a job, used the card to buy $25 worth of deodorant, water and cigarettes. And then he returned the card.

Concerns over the wisdom of sharing of credits cards and credit card fraud aside, the unlikely encounter became a talking point — a feel-good story about, as the New York Post put it in a headline: “A bum you can trust — honest!”

A Japanese research team said Thursday it had developed the world's first 3D television system that allows users to touch, pinch or poke images floating in front of them.

"It is the first time that you can feel images in the air," said Norio Nakamura, senior scientist with the research team at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology.

"You can have the sense of touch like poking a rubber ball or stretching a sticky rice cake" when manipulating images, he told AFP by telephone.

A Pennsylvania couple secretly videotaped a Roman Catholic priest having sex with their 18-year-old daughter in the basement of their home and are now suing, saying he got her pregnant.

The lawsuit seeks punitive damages for breach of fiduciary duty, infliction of emotional distress and gross negligence. It names as defendants Bonilla, the diocese, the high school, Allentown Bishop John O. Barres, and former Bishop Edward Cullen.

A KAZAKH man cut off his penis at Madrid's Barajas airport to avoid being extradited home and was taken to hospital in a serious condition, Spanish media reported today.

The 52-year-old man had finished serving a five-year prison sentence in Spain for a violent crime and was due to be extradited back to Kazakhstan overnight Monday.

Despite being escorted by several police officers, the man was able to slip a knife out of his clothing and sever his penis.

The man was admitted to a Madrid hospital and was still in a serious condition today, Spanish media said.

On June 8, 2010, Naoto Kan, 63, was upgraded from a Deputy Prime Minister to the one and only Prime Minister of the Empire of Japan. While he was busy being sworn in by Emperor Akhito, Japanese retailer ClubT was busy making a fortune selling t-shirts bearing an image of Naoto, along with a ‘Yes We Kan’ parody of U.S. President Barack Obama’s famous election-campaign phrase.

Krishnaiah, 40, is a drunk with a penchant for cheap liquor. It’s a bad habit for which he’s incurred quite a heavy debt with local liquor-shop owners. So much so, in fact, that local dealers refused to sell him anymore, which in turn inspired him to travel down the street and put his prepubescent daughter up for sale at an open auction.

He managed to find a local pedophile willing to pay 1,000 Rupees (or $21.44) for the poor lass. Thankfully, news of the horrific ordeal quickly spread, prompting the spineless purchaser to abandon Krishnaiah’s daughter at a street corner. Police later found her. As for the pervert, he fled the scene and hasn’t been seen since.

Krishnaiah, on the other hand, was immediately apprehended by police and then given a beat-down that would likely make Mike Tyson cower in fear. Though corporal punishment is a questionable repercussion—no matter what the crime—it can be reasoned that the the drunken fool will think twice about ever trying to pull off such a pathetic scheme.

Unfortunately, there is no word as to whether he will be reunited with his daughter, or whether she’ll be shipped off to a foster home. For the moment he lies in jail, contemplating his poor decision.

The investigation apparently involves "one report of rape and one report of harassment." The story was broken by Swedish tabloid Expressen (original in Swedish), and later picked up by more reputable sources like CNN and the BBC, who say the warrant has been confirmed by Swedish authorities. The WikiLeaks Twitter feed has commented three times about the charges so far, first saying they were warned of 'dirty tricks,' then that they hadn't been contacted by Swedish police, and then a statement from Assange saying the charges are without basis.

A Chinese fishmonger almost died after an eel swam into his bottom.

Li Chang was sitting on the edge of a tank at a warehouse in Guangzhou in southern China when he fell back into a container of live eels, The Sun newspaper reports.

The 43-year-old said he was horrified when he felt one swim up his trousers and into his anus.

He said he was too embarrassed to tell anyone what had happened and continued working.

But colleagues called emergency services after he collapsed.

Doctors performed a five hour surgery to remove the creature and repair the severe internal injuries caused by it moving around.

A Massachusetts man who was rushed to hospital with a collapsed lung came home with an unusual diagnosis: a pea plant was growing in his lung.

Peas

Ron Sveden had been battling emphysema for months when his condition deteriorated.

 

He was steeling himself for a cancer diagnosis when X-rays revealed the growth in his lung.

Doctors believe that Mr Sveden ate the pea at some point, but it "went down the wrong way" and sprouted.

"One of the first meals I had in the hospital after the surgery had peas for the vegetable. I laughed to myself and ate them," Mr Sveden told a local Boston TV reporter.

Mr Sveden said the plant was about half an inch (1.25cm) in size.

"Whether this would have gone full-term and I'd be working for the Jolly Green Giant, I don't know. I think the thing that finally dawned on me is that it wasn't the cancer," Mr Sveden said.

He is currently recovering at home with his wife Nancy, who joked that God must have a sense of humour.

Internet is building up into a rage over this injustice and stupid actions of Justine winter here is the information so far.

In an unusual legal maneuver, Justine Winter — the Evergreen teenager charged with deliberate homicide in the traffic deaths of Erin Thompson and her 13-year-old son — has sued Thompson’s estate and the construction company that built the U.S. 93 overpass at Church Drive where the accident occurred.

Winter, 17, with her father, Randy Winter, filed the lawsuit in Flathead County District Court July 15 against Knife River Corp., Western Traffic Control Inc., Mountain West Holding Co. and the estate of Erin Thompson.

Some honors are dubious indeed. For Huang Kaiquan, a forty-year-old man, living with his mother in a village in southwestern China, the title of world’s smallest man seems well within reach.

Huang is a former actor/magician who stands just less than two feet, six inches, which is only 1.4 cm (about half an inch) higher than the former world’s shortest man, He Pingping, who was 29 inches tall. Pingping died of chest problems last March at the age of 21 while filming a television program in Italy for the Guinness Book of Records.

Unidentified flying objects (UFOs) have been the subject of fascination, controversy and disdain for many years. Almost every culture known to mankind at different periods in history has experienced and recorded the presence of strange unknown objects in the sky.

ufo  UFO Disrupts Chinese Traffic picture

Even though 95% of all UFO reports are proven to be fallacious, every now and then there is the report of a sighting that sends a few shivers up and down even the most conservative spines.

Such an occurrence happened last month (July 7th) when a UFO disrupted air traffic over Xiaoshan Airport in Hangzhou, the capital city of east China’s Zhejiang Province.

All outbound fights were suspended after air traffic controllers spotted the fiery object skimming across the sky. The municipal government abruptly closed the airport, pending an investigation into the matter.

The UFO was detected in the sky about 9pm, causing flights to be re-routed to other airports in Ningbo and Wuxi cities.

The Chinese Internet lit up with possible theories concerning the identity and purpose of this strange object. They ranged from a hoax incurred by the US to an actual planetary invasion.

The airport soon resumed normal activities, but something lingered that altered the texture of everyday life and it is still there, hanging like an invisible cloud over conventional thoughts and understanding.

To date, there has been no public statement concerning the resolution of any investigation or scientific inquiry.

What WAS it?

Authorities claim the matter is still under investigation, but the reality is that:

No one knows.

Only THEY know, which is not exactly the most comforting of thoughts.

"Melodi Dushane was so frustrated that she couldn't order chicken nuggets - because the restaurant was serving breakfast - that she attacked the member of staff.


On the surveillance video, which has just been released by police, Dushane, 25, appears to get out of her car and hit the drive-through employee in the mouth.


Seconds later she smashes the window before driving off.
She was arrested and faces vandalism charges."

"The open-source Mozilla project has been offering cash bounties for security bugs for six years now, but often bug finders simply turn down the cash. Between 10 percent and 15 percent of the serious security bugs reported since Mozilla launched its bug bounty program have been provided free of charge, according to Mozilla."

 

More evidence, if any were needed, that "Open Source" software is a sinister communist plot that defies all sound economic principles.

Sincerely,


S. Ballmer.

In what many telecommunications scholars and sociologists are tentatively referring to as "the saddest forum post in the history of all mankind," Blizzard recently informed World of Warcraft players on the Moon Guard server that moderators would now be patrolling the server for ... erotic role-playing. Particularly in one in-game town, Goldshire, which appears to be a non-stop, Bacchanalian festival of delights of the virtual flesh and oh man, that's the creepiest thing we've ever typed.


Blizzard customer service reps will now "regularly" keep an eye on the town's public chat channels, privately punishing players who violate the game's harassment policies. We can't wait to hear about some of the super awkward /Tells this enforcement will lead to. "Dear Razorbladez, please stop trying to have cybersex with that level 2 Paladin. That is very, very gross."

A former Upper St. Clair High School student who already claimed she had been raped once was raped again on school property after school officials used her as bait in a failed attempt to catch students they believed were having sex in the building, her attorneys claim.

The allegation was made in a lengthy response filed by attorneys for the unidentified former student against the district's motion to throw out the lawsuit brought by the former student. Upper St. Clair school district is asking U.S. District Chief Judge Gary L. Lancaster to find in its favor, arguing that the plaintiffs cannot prove the district was deliberately indifferent to the possibility that the student would be assaulted.

According to the brief by the student's attorney, on Feb. 4, 2008, the girl went to one of her teachers, Esther von Waldow, and told her that a boy, with whom she'd had previous problems, had forced her to have sex with him after school. The Post-Gazette does not identify victims of sexual assault and has not identified the accused rapist, who pleaded guilty in juvenile court to sexual assault.

Taking old World War II photos, Russian photographer Sergey Larenkov carefully photoshops them over more recent shots to make the past come alive. Not only do we get to experience places like Berlin, Prague, and Vienna in ways we could have never imagined, more importantly, we are able to appreciate our shared history in a whole new and unbelievably meaningful way.
