After they handcuffed Hoffman and took him out of the home, the officers found the girl in the basement, bound on a bed made of leaves.
Then, Feeney and his partner went back to the living room.
They didn’t want to disturb any potential evidence, but they had to see what they were dealing with. They poked at the pile with sticks.
“All kinds of things go through your mind,” Feeney said. “I’ve seen a lot of crazy cases, but this guy? Wow. Who has a 14 x 14 tarp in their living room with leaves piled 3feet high?”
But that pile of leaves was just the beginning of what awaited them in the Hoffman house. The detectives also found three floor-to-ceiling rows of bagged leaves hanging on a living-room wall.
They found a bathroom completely insulated by more than 110 bags of leaves attached to the walls. The bags covered the mirror; they surrounded the toilet.
Was it really insulation? An oddball hobby? Or just a maniac’s fascination?

The 1970s produced the genre that would later come to be known as ‘Blaxploitation’. The film genre emerged during this decade as films were made specifically with an urban black audience in mind. The term ‘Blaxploitation’ emerges from a fusion of the words black and exploitation.
These movies were larger-than-life, action-packed, and full of funk and soul music. Known not only for their exciting nature, these films also involved progressive social and political commentary. From Pam Grier to Bill Cosby, check out who delved into this genre and what the actors have been doing since the ’70s …
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton: “We believe that governments who have erected barriers to internet freedom, whether they’re technical filters or censorship regimes or attacks on those who exercise their rights to expression and assembly online, will eventually find themselves boxed in. They will face a dictator’s dilemma and will have to choose between letting the walls fall or paying the price to keep them standing. Governments that arrest bloggers, pry into the peaceful activities of their citizens, and limit their access to the internet, may claim to be seeking security. In fact, they may even mean it as they define it. But they are taking the wrong path.”
In an unacknowledged irony, Clinton’s comments came just as government lawyers appeared in a Virginia court to argue their case for cracking down on the online whistleblower WikiLeaks.
The city invited people to suggest names for a new government center. Thousands went online to propose naming it after a mayor from the 1930s. But officials tell the Journal Gazette newspaper they likely will not do it. Their reluctance is understandable because the mayor had an unusual name. But in fairness to past generations, it seems sad not to honor Mayor Harry Baals.
“Biodiesel From Afghanistan Poppies.” Larkin knew that tractors in Tasmania, the site of the world’s largest legal opium industry, ran on poppy biodiesel. If it worked in Tasmania, it could work in Afghanistan: poppy seeds have an exceptionally high oil content (45 to 50 percent, compared with 40 percent in canola seeds), the oil has good “cold flow” properties (resistance to viscosity in cold weather), and, oh yeah, Afghanistan’s poppy crop could produce 100,000 tons of oil a year, or about 2.5 percent of annual global biodiesel consumption. Even the Pentagon’s budget-minders could benefit. The United States was paying perhaps as much as $400 to protect and deliver a single gallon of fuel to forward operating bases in rural Afghanistan, when a gallon of locally made biodiesel would have cost less than $10.
“Stories exert a powerful influence on human thoughts and behavior. They consolidate memory, shape emotions, cue heuristics and biases in judgment, influence in-group/out-group distinctions, and may affect the fundamental contents of personal identity. It comes as no surprise that these influences make stories highly relevant to vexing security challenges such as radicalization, violent social mobilization, insurgency and terrorism, and conflict prevention and resolution. Therefore, understanding the role stories play in a security context is a matter of great import and some urgency,”
SCIENTISTS have created a real-life thinking cap which works by zapping electricity through the brain.The weird-looking headwear has had extraordinary results and experts believe it could help people be more creative.
The probability that the U.S. will be hit with a weapons of mass destruction attack at some point is 100 percent, Dr. Vahid Majidi, the FBI’s assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Weapons of Mass Destruction Directorate, tells Newsmax.
Such an attack could be launched by foreign terrorists, lone wolves who are terrorists, or even by criminal elements, Majidi says. It would most likely employ chemical, biological, or radiological weapons rather than a nuclear device.
In the last three years, America’s military and intelligence agencies have spent more than $125 million on computer models that are supposed to forecast political unrest. It’s the latest episode in Washington’s four-decade dalliance with future-spotting programs. But if any of these algorithms saw the upheaval in Egypt coming, the spooks and the generals are keeping the predictions very quiet.
Instead, the head of the CIA is getting hauled in front of Congress, making calls about Egypt’s future based on what he read in the press, and getting proven wrong hours later. Meanwhile, an array of Pentagon-backed social scientists, software engineers and computer modelers are working to assemble forecasting tools that are able to reliably pick up on geopolitical trends worldwide. It remains a distant goal.
Detroit, Michigan, Wednesday, July 14, 1982. Lovers, of dubious mentation, award the woman’s boyfriend a jacketed bullet to the back of the head with a large caliber handgun. They then photograph each other as they dismember the corpse and arrange the various bits. All participants are nude. It is unsure if the nudity was pre- or post- mortem. Not that it makes any real difference. Ain’t love grand?
