Montel Williams has been the face of many things – host of a nationally syndicated television talk show and pitchman for prescription drug assistance products and a fruit-and-vegetable emulsifier.
On Monday, Williams appeared in Sacramento to announce a partnership with a new enterprise, a medical marijuana dispensary.
Police say a western Pennsylvania stole a kind of “fake” marijuana while using a fake $1 million bill.
Police in Sharpsville on Monday charged 23-year-old Joseph Lombardi with trying to “purchase” a bag of herbal potpourri called “Space Cadet Flight Risk” using the bogus bill at a FoodMart store.

A Florida condominium association hopes dog DNA samples will help them determine which pet owners aren’t picking up after their pooches.
The Village of Abacoa Condominium Association says cleaning up after dog owners who don’t clean up after their dogs costs $10,000 to $12,000 a year.
Starting Aug. 1, residents in the Jupiter community must each pay a $200 fee to keep the dogs’ genetic information on file at the DNA Pet World Registry. Dog droppings found in common areas will be collected and mailed to the Tennessee-based company for comparison.
Theories as the cause of the mysterious luminous sphere have ranged from the opening of an inter-dimensional portal to the future to a battle between two alien starships.
But the most likely explanation is that is shows a U.S. Minuteman III inter-continental ballistic missile (ICBM), ejecting fuel as it enters the upper reaches of the Earth’s atmosphere.
The time-lapse footage shows the night horizon filled with stars, when suddenly an ethereal arc pops into view.
I was asked by an aspiring writer whether at this point it’s still worth it as a writer to own one’s own domain, i.e., in the age of everyone being on Facebook, setting up one’s online shingle elsewhere is like opening a business on a dusty street a mile away from Main Street.
My thought on this: Hey, remember when everyone was on America Online? And then everyone was on Friendster? And then everyone was on MySpace? And now everyone’s on Facebook? Yeah, you’ll notice a pattern here, perhaps.
Yes, but Facebook is huge, you say, with unspeakably large numbers of users worldwide and a valuation of $70 billion.
Wow, I say, just like America Online was huge, with an unspeakably large number of users online and a valuation of over $100 billion.
Deputy Constable Paul Armand was making what he thought was a routine traffic stop early Tuesday morning when he pulled over a car that didn’t have headlights on.
As he approached the black Mazda 626, the Precinct 8 deputy noticed the driver had blood on his face. He also saw that the front windshield was shattered and partially inside the vehicle.
The deputy constable then saw a body in the passenger seat, partially underneath the dashboard and with a severed leg.
Think about it. We have less privacy and freedom than any generation in history.
The government and big corporations know your every move. They know where you work, how much you own, how much you owe, where you go and what you buy. They know where you are, who you’re talking to and what you’re saying. They know what books and blogs you’re reading and what movies and TV you’re watching, and who your “friends” are. You are tracked by your cellphone, judged by your FICO score and monitored by your iPad. Your government ID number — known as your Social Security number — means that they can tie all these things together and trace them right back to you.
Yet here was Whitey Bulger — the most hunted American in history — living a comfortable, middle-class life just blocks from the beach, right under Big Brother’s big nose. And they didn’t have a clue.
Whatever you think of Whitey, that’s something.
Too fake, my county’s propaganda photo (Huili government website has already publicized an apology)
Today I had nothing to do so I decided to visit my county government’s website. The front page news item was about the high standard repair of the public road that passes through the rural country but upon clicking and seeing the photo, I spit out half a liter of blood!
This kind of image even I who can’t be any more amateur than I am can tell it is PSed, and they even thought it was a good idea to put it on the home page, even putting it as the topmost/first item! Perhaps it is because they don’t think anyone will look at their home page!

— Ed Sullivan introducing the apocalyptic short film A SHORT VISION on the May 27, 1956 broadcast of The Ed Sullivan Show
“Years later I met a man from Canada who had shoulder length dark hair, but in the center of his head was a small spot where his hair grew out a silvery white color. I asked him about it, and he told me that he was a medically documented case of a person whose hair had turned white from fright. As a child, he had seen A SHORT VISION while alone in a house, and he experienced extreme panic and terror for some time, and one result was that his hair began to grow out white from that one spot on his head.”
Russian scientists expect humanity to encounter alien civilisations within the next two decades, a top Russian astronomer said on Monday.
“The genesis of life is as inevitable as the formation of atoms … Life exists on other planets and we will find it within 20 years,” said Andrei Finkelstein, director of the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Applied Astronomy Institute, according to the Interfax news agency.
Speaking at an international forum dedicated to the search for extraterrestrial life, Finkelstein said 10% of the known planets circling suns in the galaxy resemble Earth.
If water can be found there, then so can life, he said, adding that aliens would most likely resemble humans with two arms, two legs and a head.
“They may have different colour skin, but even we have that,” he said.
It’s an embarrassment of riches. A receipt – showing a astounding $100 million savings balance- was left behind at an East End bank by an arrogant mogul who couldn’t be bothered to pick it up after withdrawing $400 and paying a $2.75 ATM fee.
It was found sticking out of the slot at the Capital One Bank in East Hampton Village by the next customer — who turned it over to the financial tabloid Web site Dealbreaker.com.
Besides documenting an amazing $99,864,731.94 savings account, it illustrates one truth that every New Yorker knows — no matter who you are or how much you have, you can’t escape ATM fees.
But the factory owners refused to pay 62 cents per hour, or $5 per day, as a measure unanimously passed by the Haitian Parliament in June 2009 would have mandated. And they had the vigorous backing of the US Agency for International Development and the US Embassy when they took that stand.
Olwell adds that creating the billboard demanded the “most visceral approaches”. “They do not have language or culture and they have very short attention spans,” he says. “We really had to strip out any hip and current thinking and get to the absolute core of what is advertising.”
And visceral is exactly what the team has gone for — working to the age-old mantra that sex sells. The billboards will not be made public until after the experiment has come to an end but: “One billboard shows a graphic shot of a female monkey with her genitals exposed, alongside the brand A logo. The other shows the alpha male of the Capuchin troop associated with brand A.”
A bizarre video where a gay activist claims he was prevented from taking part in the upcoming Gaza-bound flotilla because of his sexual orientation has been exposed as an Israeli hoax.
It appears to be the latest in a dirty-tricks campaign that includes sabotage and legal challenges orchestrated by groups seeking to derail and discredit efforts by activists to sail into Gaza’s waters to challenge Israel’s blockade of the Palestinian territory.
Secret Codes ‘Everywhere’
The brochure, which is published by a Berlin-based anti-racism group, Agentur für Soziale Perspektiven, lists 150 codes that are used by right-wing extremists, including certain clothing labels such as Thor Steinar and letter and number combinations. According to Weiss, the number 14 is a reference to the so-called “14 Words,” a phrase coined by the American white separatist David Lane (“We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children”). The meaning behind “88” — often found in conjunction with 14 — is slightly more complicated. Here, the number eight stands for the eighth letter of the alphabet, forming “HH” — an abbreviation for “Heil Hitler,” a phrase which is banned in Germany. Similarly, the number 28 signifies “BH,” standing for “Blood and Honour,” a far-right network that was banned in Germany in 2000.
John Lennon was a closet Republican, who felt a little embarrassed by his former radicalism, at the time of his death – according to the tragic Beatles star’s last personal assistant.
Fred Seaman worked alongside the music legend from 1979 to Lennon’s death at the end of 1980 and he reveals the star was a Ronald Reagan fan who enjoyed arguing with left-wing radicals who reminded him of his former self.
At a single address in this sleepy city of 60,000 people, more than 2,000 companies are registered. The building, 2710 Thomes Avenue, isn’t a shimmering skyscraper filled with A-list corporations. It’s a 1,700-square-foot brick house with a manicured lawn, a few blocks from the State Capitol.
Neighbors say they see little activity there besides regular mail deliveries and a woman who steps outside for smoke breaks. Inside, however, the walls of the main room are covered floor to ceiling with numbered mailboxes labeled as corporate “suites.” A bulky copy machine sits in the kitchen. In the living room, a woman in a headset answers calls and sorts bushels of mail.
A Reuters investigation has found the house at 2710 Thomes Avenue serves as a little Cayman Island on the Great Plains. It is the headquarters for Wyoming Corporate Services, a business-incorporation specialist that establishes firms which can be used as “shell” companies, paper entities able to hide assets.
You can have all the firewalls and Internet security software in the world, but sometimes there’s just no accounting for human curiosity and stupidity.
Bloomberg reports that The US Department of Homeland recently ran a test on government employees to see how easy it was for hackers to gain access to computer systems, without the need for direct network access.
Computer disks and USB sticks were dropped in parking lots of government buildings and private contractors, and 60% of the people who picked them up plugged the devices into office computers. And if the drive or CD had an official logo on it, 90% were installed.
The FBI said Wednesday that members of an anti-gay fundamentalist group participated in the bureau’s training of police officers and FBI agents – a move the bureau says it will take steps to remedy in the future.
The bureau extended the invitations to Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kan., for training this spring at two bureau facilities in Virginia: Quantico and Manassas.
Westboro has stirred widespread outrage with raucous demonstrations at the funerals of U.S. military service members. The group contends God is punishing the military for the nation’s tolerance of homosexuality.
National Public Radio first reported the FBI’s involvement with Westboro.
Greenpeace has slammed Volkswagen’s environmental record by claiming that the giant carmaker has stalled on fuel efficiency gains and is attempting to thwart an EU plan to dramatically lower CO2 emissions by 2020.
In its report, ‘The Dark Side of Volkswagen’, Greenpeace complains that Europe’s largest car manufacturer has purposely restricted its most fuel efficient engines to a tiny minority of vehicles, and then drastically increased the price for consumers.
Police are looking for two men accused of setting a Brooklyn subway token booth on fire this morning while the attendant was inside.
It happened at the Prospect Park Q line station early Wednesday morning during an apparent robbery attempt.
The attendant refused to let the pair into the booth, and one of the suspects became angry, allegedly poured liquid onto the front of the glass booth and lit it on fire.

In June 1968, Sirhan Sirhan shot Kennedy dead in the kitchen of the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, moments after he had clinched victory in the California Democratic primary for that year’s presidential election.
Sirhan, a 24-year-old Palestinian, cried “I did it for my country” when arrested. He kept diaries detailing his hatred of Kennedy for promising military support for Israel, a year after the region’s Six-Day War.
Yet Sirhan’s lawyer claims he was programmed to shoot the politician while under hypnosis.
Bill Pepper, the New York attorney who will today lead Sirhan’s 14th attempt to be given parole, improbably alleges his client was “hypno-programmed”.
“Sirhan was put through a process involving hypnosis and chemicals,” claimed Mr Pepper, who is also a qualified barrister in England and Wales.
Lt. Gen. William Caldwell may well have broken the law, which prohibits psychological operations from being used against U.S. citizens. But shelve those “Manchurian Candidate” fantasies: those familiar with psy-ops (PSYOP in military parlance) and propaganda say the field is a closer cousin to public relations than its intimidating moniker would suggest. (In the movie “Manchurian Candidate,” a former prisoner of the Korean War gets brainwashed by Communists.)
“There’s no brainwashing,” Sgt. Maj. Herb Friedman, an army veteran and psy-ops expert, told LiveScience. “PSYOP gets blamed for a whole host of things that has nothing to do with them whatsoever.”
Even a regional nuclear war could spark “unprecedented” global cooling and reduce rainfall for years, according to U.S. government computer models.
Widespread famine and disease would likely follow, experts speculate.
During the Cold War a nuclear exchange between superpowers—such as the one feared for years between the United States and the former Soviet Union—was predicted to cause a “nuclear winter.”
The Homeland Security Department this summer plans to begin testing a DNA analyzer that’s small enough to be easily portable and fast enough to return results in less than an hour.
The analyzer, about the size of a laser printer, initially will be used to determine kinship among refugees and asylum seekers. It also could help establish whether foreigners giving children up for adoption are their parents or other relatives, and help combat child smuggling and human trafficking, said Christopher Miles, biometrics program manager in the DHS Office of Science and Technology.
Six company names; Bertelsmann, NBC (Comcast / GE), Disney, News Corporation, Time Warner, and CBS (/ Viacom) summarise the biggest controllers of media and information flowing through our eyes and ears today.
It really is overwhelming to witness the power of a few men over all manner of worldwide media outlets, whether cinema, TV, DVD’s, print newspapers, magazines, cable TV, radio networks, or book publishing.
Wherever you look, editors are paid by their seniors make sure that certain topics are given attention, and other topics are not given attention. Do you think that a media mogul is ever going to run a devastating hit-piece about himself, should the truth make his position untenable? Of course not. Is it so hard to imagine that just as the wealthy and connected chiefs of these Orwellian empires would never act to hurt their personal interests, just as similarly they would never act to hurt their commercial interests? How about the commercial interests of their friends?
Sony Music and MTV have apologised after a Japanese pop group appeared on primetime television wearing Nazi-style uniforms, triggering a protest from a Jewish rights group.
Kishidan, an all-male pop band known for its outlandish garb, appeared in uniforms resembling those of the SS, the armed wing of the Nazi party, during an interview on MTV Japan’s Mega Vector programme at the end of last month.
The Los Angeles-based Simon Wiesenthal Centre, which monitors anti-semitic activities, expressed “shock and dismay” at the band’s appearance and urged them to apologise to its fans and the victims of Nazism.
Excitement from the discovery would ripple across the state, from the headquarters near Beaverton of the company Bill co-founded to the tiny town of Fossil hours away where he spent his childhood. In addition to shoes with treads handmade by Bill, Melissa had stumbled upon Nike’s Holy Grail: the long-lost waffle iron that inspired him to craft the revolutionary sole that launched an athletic empire.
“It truly is the headwaters of our innovation,” Nike historian Scott Reames said. “From a historian’s standpoint, it’s like finding the Titanic.”
Facas said his brother, who was working at the time, noticed footprints on the toilet seat and looked in the ceiling above the toilet, where he found the man’s plastic bag with a paper bag inside.
Thinking the bag was filled with drugs, he gave it to two Upper Darby police officers who were in the shop eating lunch, Chitwood said. But instead of drugs, there were several little, hairy, white mice in the bag, police said.
The officers looked outside for Galiatsatos and saw him walking into another nearby pizza shop, Uncle Nick’s, carrying another bag, Chitwood said.
When Galiatsatos saw that the cops were watching him, Chitwood said, he quickly entered and left Uncle Nick’s, but he was no Speedy Gonzales. Police stopped him outside the restaurant and discovered that he had put the bag – which contained five live mice and one dead one – into a trash can at Uncle Nick’s, Chitwood said.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection nabbed a 49-year-old woman from southern Mexico with two coolers of iguana meat — ingredients, the agency said, “for some rather exotic tamales.”
CBP spokesman Rick Pauza, recalling a similar seizure in November, said there apparently is a U.S. niche market for lizard meat. Internet searches turn up recipes for iguana soups, stews, and sautés.
“It has a domestic value of somewhere in the neighborhood of $25 to $30 per pound, so it obviously has a value to some people,” he said.
“He preferred that I be a lot more conservative and didn’t like for me to dress sexy,” she said.
“So now I’m saying, ‘Ha, ha, you don’t have a say-so anymore.’ “
Yesterday, Taylor had six items up for sale — including duds from Hollister, Kenneth Cole and Marc Ecko — each complete with a slew of thong and flesh-bearing photos, snapped by a friend.
It turns out that during her three years away, Fangfang was forced onto the streets to beg, and if she could not meet her goals she would face beatings. “Used a belt to hit me. Used a nail to prick my hand, until it bled; Picked me up and threw me on the ground, used scissors to cut my ears, nose, and tongue; Also had me eat feces…”
After Fangfang with a body covered with scars returned, Ren Shangtian took her to the hospital for a check-up and upon discovering that there are already aftereffects [emotional trauma] left on the child, he went to find Zhai Xuefeng where he got 22,000 yuan as compensation and even signed an agreement.
Although representatives deny any connection to the recent prank call on the governor, two legislators began circulating a bill Monday that would ban making trick calls masking the caller’s true identity.
Sen. Mary Lazich, R-Waukesha, and Rep. Mark Honadel, R-Milwaukee, authored a bill that would prohibit tricking the call’s recipient into believing the caller is someone they are not for malicious purposes.
“While use of spoofing is said to have some legitimate uses, it can also be used to frighten, harass and potentially defraud,” Lazich and Honadel said in an e-mail to legislators.
The owl that footballer Luis Moreno kicked during a Colombian first division game died early Tuesday as a result of the brutal attack by the Deportivo Perreira defender.
owl_275.jpgDespite showing signs of improvement as late as Monday night, the bird “went into a state of shock and died,” attending veterinarian Camilo Tapia told the local press, Triunfo reported.
Around this time, Davis began to write a book about racism and hate groups, titled Klandestine Relations: A Black Man’s Odyssey in the Ku Klux Klan. He used his inroad with the Klansman to interview the state leader of the Klan, Roger Kelly—the Grand Dragon of Maryland.
The Klansman warned Davis that Kelly might kill him, but aside from a few tense moments during the three-hour interview, Kelly and Davis developed a mutual respect. Eventually they became friends. Kelly brought Davis to Klan rallies, providing him more material for his book. Davis helped Kelly quit the Klan.
Ice cream made from breast milk has been removed from a central London restaurant on health grounds following complaints by members of the public.
The dessert, called Baby Gaga, went on sale at ice cream parlour Icecreamists in Covent Garden in February.
But Westminster Council officers removed the product to make sure it was “fit for human consumption”.
A doctor at the Montreal Chest Institute has been suspended for using a hidden camera to film his naked patients.
Quebec’s College of Physicians has suspended Dr. Barry Rabinovitch after admitting to the disciplinary board that he filmed more than a dozen female patients in various stages of undress in the examining room in 2009.
He may be the creepiest quack in Brooklyn – a bogus cancer doctor charged with a crime so heinous it earned him the highest bail in state history.
Michail Sorodsky, 63, not only failed to heal the gravely ill women who forked over wads of cash for his holistic therapies, he sexually molested them and even raped at least one sedated patient, prosecutors say.
Jury selection in the skin-crawling case begins in Brooklyn Supreme Court this week while Sorodsky continues to be held on an eye-popping $11 million cash bail or $33 million bond a figure higher – more than even Bernie Madoff faced.
Authorities say Sorodsky slathered his victims in a probiotic yogurt, inserting the concoction into their genitalia, claiming they would be healed.
Her nicknames may include ‘wolf girl’ and ‘monkey face’.
But 11-year-old Thai girl Supatra Sasuphan today insisted that she was after being officially recognised as the world’s hairiest girl.
Although the schoolgirl from Bangkok has faced merciless teasing at school, Supatra says being given a Guinness World Record for her hair has helped her become extremely popular.
Drinking diet soda is associated with a 50-percent increase in stroke risk, according to a study presented earlier this month at the American Stroke Association’s International Stroke Conference in Los Angeles.
Not surprisingly, reaction to the news among dieters has been disparaging and defensive, as each person cycles through the Kubler-Ross five stages of grief, from denial and anger to bargaining, depression and acceptance.
“Now the health police tell us we can’t drink Diet Coke,” captures the tone on many of the diet blogs.

Yet more unearthed footage of Christmas Day 1977 Huddersfield. The Sex Pistols Christmas Party. Rare footage with a commentary from Johnny Rotten and Paul Cook. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL FROM THE SEX PISTOLS CHANNEL.
The Sex Pistols’ final UK performance was at Ivanhoes in Huddersfield on Christmas day 1977, a benefit for the families of striking firemen. Despite the band’s state of disintegration by this time, the gig was considered by some as a vindication of their anti establishment stance when they were, for once, united with what might be viewed as their true constituency, the dispossessed English working class. They played two shows, a matinee and an evening show. Tickets for the latter were furtively sold for a secret venue, announced shortly before the gig as a tactic to avoid the attentions of local councillors and the like, who had cancelled many of the Pistols’ other shows. Those waiting outside for the second show were given turkey sandwiches from the remains of the meal laid on for the strikers’ families. The atmosphere in the evening show was counter to the negative publicity that had been generated towards the band by the tabloid press; Before the show, Johnny Rotten mingled with the crowd wearing his pith helmet, and the good humour of the matinee (which was a benefit played for free) lingered on. Years later the promoter of the evening show confessed that the Pistols never cashed his cheque.
