    The wireless industry, The FCC, and FEMA will roll-out the WEA's (Wireless Emergency Alerts) system nationwide this year.

    The NWS will start utilizing this by pushing extreme weather warnings over the system in June 2012.

    Tornado warnings, flash flood warnings and several other high-end warnings will go direct to wireless users in an affected county automatically if their device is compatible.

    Cats

    Talk about one crazy cat lady.

    A man from southern Israel is divorcing his wife because she because she adopted 550 pet cats, the Times of Israel reported Wednesday.

    According to the paper, the unnamed man complained in his divorce docs that the hundreds of kitties hindered his home life at every turn: they blocked the entrance to the bathroom, swarmed the kitchen, and stalked him at mealtime by stealing his food off the table.

    And though the couple reportedly gave reconciliation a shot at the behest of the rabbinical court, the wife ultimately choose the cats over her husband, and the pair decided to go their separate ways.

    Let this be a warning to the Russian woman living in a two-room apartment with 130 cats: never marry.

  • Woman Shoots Herself Twice In FAKE Home Invasion Cover-Up

    Joylounders
    Cops sit outside the home of Joy Lounders, who allegedly shot herself twice to coverup a fake home invasion story.

    She almost took her story to the grave.

    Joy Lounders fabricated a violent home invasion Wednesday night and then shot herself twice as a cover-up, police in Tennessee said today.

    The 48-year-old Jefferson County woman apparently didn't think her false intruder story would check out -- so she fired a .38 caliber handgun at her own leg and shoulder to make the scene more believable, WBIR reported.

    While waiting for an airlift to the hospital, Lounders allegedly told cops that a white male in his 40s had entered her house. She said she grabbed her handgun and struggled with the man, who shot her twice.

    Then she called her husband and a neighbor, who called 911.

    The evidence didn't match her story, however, and Lounders confessed to shooting herself as a cover-up, according to WATE.

    It remains unclear why Lounders would make up the story, but Jefferson County Sheriff Bud McCoig told reporters that the suspect was due to turn herself in to serve a DUI sentence Monday.

    McCoig said he doesn't know whether he'll file new charges against her.

  • 7 Signs You're Dating A Criminal

    Posted by Mike DuBord

    Online Dating Safety: 7 Signs He's A Criminal [EXPERT]

    Online Dating Safety: 7 Signs He's A Criminal [EXPERT]What you see isn't always what you get.
    Are you dating a common criminal? Here's how to tell.

    Online dating is generally safe, and most people you find will be normal, good-natured men and women who are simply looking for love. You also may bump into a small number of strange people (e.g. men who show up on a date with their wedding rings on, or the supposed-to-be Brad Pitt look-a-like who shows up looking a little bit aged and 100lbs heavier than his photo suggested) and they will probably be harmless.

    But, criminals are around and the Internet is open to them to use and abuse, too. And unfortunately, we can’t do background checks on the people we agree to go on a date with. Nothing is ever 100% fool proof but these seven tips should definitely help you spot a criminal more easily when dating.

    1. He has more than two phones. Two phones are usually okay as one may be for work and the other may be for personal reasons. More than two phones should make you suspicious. If you’re on a date with a man who has more than two phones, acts like a switchboard operator, and seems to answer the phones a lot, chances are he's up to something and you may not like what it is.

     2. He uses coded language. As if answering the phone during dinner wasn't bad enough, if he uses coded language or his conversations don't seem normal, he's keeping a secret and there's a good chance he’s involved in criminal activity. If not that, he's just plain rude! Is Online Dating Really Worthwhile? EXPERT

    3. You're unsure of his job title. In these difficult times, some people have had to accept jobs they're less than proud of. He may not want to be completely honest about his job title if he's embarrassed by it. But be cautious of confusing job titles. If he says he's a street pharmacist, run!

    4. His income doesn't make sense. He claims he's unemployed yet seems to be able to afford a flashy Rolex, designer clothes and expensive meals and drinks. Maybe he has wealthy parents to fund his lifestyle (lucky guy) or maybe, he's using his illegal proceeds to live a lavish life that he shouldn't be able to afford.

    5. He has a bad temper. If he's snappy, often irate, is mean to waitresses, and always looking for a fight, chances are he has a history of violent behavior and may even be abusing drugs. This is probably the most dangerous sort of criminal and if he displays any signs of an anger problem, I would definitely recommend you run!

    6. He frequently breaks the speed limit. It may not be obvious, but if he drives like he's Michael Schumacher and frequently breaks speed limits, he clearly has no respect for the law, his life, your life, and the life of other road users. Plus, how did he learn to drive so fast? Maybe he used to be a car racer, or, maybe he's had a lot of practice from being chased by police. Think about it.

    7. He says all the right things. This is a tricky one because only Mr. Right would say all the right things, right? Well, not necessarily. Domestic abusers are known for their initial charm: their great way with words, their romantic behavior, and their chivalry. But be careful of someone who seems too good to be true since there's a small chance they just may be untrue. And, if you haven't yet met him, but you've spent three months messaging him online and he keeps failing to meet you, but somehow seems to always be running into some kind of financial difficulty, block him before you end up selling your house for a man that never was.

    Finally, if he owns a camp in da U.P but NEVER wants to take you there...He's NOT a criminal, just a typical Yooper eh!

  • The Ultimate Guide To Grilling The Perfect Burger

    Posted by Mike DuBord

     

    How to Make the Best Burgers At Home

    A burger might seem quite simple to prepare, but not all burger recipes are created equal. Whether it's for a pan-seared burger made on a stovetop, or a classic backyard burger served at a weekend barbecue, the perfect burger recipe starts with the right ingredients, equipment, and cooking techniques.

    HAMBURGER KEYS TO SUCCESS

    Three common mistakes to avoid in the quest for the perfect burger.

    1. DON'T UNDERSEASON. Just dusting salt on the exterior of shaped patties doesn't cut it. Put the ground beef in a bowl. Lightly break up the meat with your hands and sprinkle evenly with salt. Use 1 teaspoon of table salt for 1½ pounds of ground beef, the amount you will need for four burgers.

    2. DON'T OVERWORK. Ground beef is not Play-Doh. The more you handle it, the denser and more rubbery it will become when cooked. After you've seasoned the meat, divide it into individual portions and, with lightly cupped hands, shape into patties. As soon as the patties hold together, stop!

    3. DON'T PRESS. Flip the burgers just once-after they've developed deep brown grill marks-and don't be tempted to press on them. Pressing down on the burgers as they cook squeezes out the flavorful juices, which end up in your grill (causing flare-ups) instead of in your burgers.

    BURGER BULGE

    Making a shallow indentation in the center of the patty is the first step toward a great burger.

    The collagen, or connective tissue, in ground meat shrinks when heated. This causes the bottom and sides of the meat to tighten like a belt, which forces the surface of the burger to expand. To prevent a bubble burger, press a 1/4-inch divot, or indentation, in the center of each patty. The collagen will still tighten, but the indented meat won't bulge.

    Flat Patties

    If you start with a flat burger patty...

    Bulging Burgers

    ...you'll end up with a bulging burger like this one.

    Divoted Patties

    Pressing a small divot into the center of each patty...

    Flat Burgers

    ...keeps the burgers from bulging. The result? Perfect burgers.

    KEEPING BURGERS FROM STICKING TO THE GRILL

    Scrape Clean

    Heat your grill up before cleaning it with a sturdy grill brush. Any residual debris will come off hot grates much easier than cool ones.

    Slick Down and Build Up Seasoning

    Grab a wad of paper towels with a pair of long-handled tongs and dip them in a bowl of vegetable oil. When the towels have absorbed the oil, run them over the cleaned grill grate. The oil will burn off at first. Continue to dip the towels into oil and slick down the grate; it will become "nonstick." When the grate turns black and glossy, your grill is good to go.

    HAMBURGER TEMPERATURE GUIDE

    Many of us depend on thermometers when we're grilling expensive steaks, but when we grill (cheap) burgers, we think we needn't bother. Wrong. For consistently delicious burgers cooked to just the right degree of doneness, don't guess. Take the temperature in the center of each burger with an instant-read thermometer.

    MEDIUM-RARE BURGER: 125 to 130 degrees, 2 to 3 minutes per side
    MEDIUM BURGER: 135 to 140 degrees, 3 to 4 minutes per side
    MEDIUM-WELL BURGER: 145 to 160 degrees, 4 to 5 minutes per side
    WELL-DONE BURGER: 160 degrees and up, 5 minutes and up per side

     

    All-American Burgers

    RECIPE: All-American Burgers

    Serves 4

    Although we usually enjoy our burgers medium-rare, with extra ingredients added, tasters found that the burgers were too soft unless cooked through (basically, well-done).

    1½ pounds 85 percent lean ground chuck
    1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
    8 strips cooked bacon, chopped fine
    4 teaspoons yellow mustard
    2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
    ½ teaspoon table salt
    ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

    1. Break beef into small pieces in medium bowl. Add cheese, bacon, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Using fork, toss until evenly distributed. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions and lightly pack into 1-inch-thick patties.

    2. When coals are ready and grate is hot, dip wad of paper towels in vegetable oil and use tongs to rub oil over grate. Grill burgers over very hot fire, without pressing down on them, until well seared on both sides and cooked through, 8 to 12 minutes. Transfer to plate, tent with foil, and let rest 5 minutes. Serve.

  • Teenage Boy Finds Finger In His Fast Food

    Posted by Mike DuBord

     

      Ryan Hart, a 14-year-old boy from Michigan, had a rude surprise when he bit into his Arby's roast beef sandwich. "I was like, 'that's got to be a finger,'" he told the Jackson Citizen Patriot. "It was just nasty."

    Reportedly, a restaurant employee cut off her finger with a meat slicer while preparing the meal. She left her station to deal with the emergency, and other employees, who were unaware of the injury, continued to complete the order.

    "Somebody loses a finger and you keep sending food out the window," said the teen's mom, Jamie Vail. "I can't believe that." She added that following the gruesome discovery, her son was "traumatized," couldn't eat or sleep, and had been prescribed medication Fox News reports.

    John Gray, Arby's vice president of corporate communications, provided Yahoo! Shine with a statement saying, "Arby’s wants to reassure customers that we are committed to providing quality food in a safe and healthy environment. We are deeply concerned and apologetic to the guest involved in this unfortunate incident....An isolated and unfortunate accident occurred in a franchisee’s Jackson, Michigan restaurant in which an employee was injured. Upon learning of the incident, the franchisee’s restaurant team shut down food production and thoroughly cleaned and sanitized the restaurant. The franchisee fully cooperated with the Health Department during the investigation, and the restaurant was given the approval to remain open."

    This is not the first time human remains have been found in a fast food meal but this case might be the most extreme.

    • A Dayton Ohio man sued Arby's in 2005 for reportedly serving him a chicken sandwich topped with a piece of human skin.
    • In a famous 2005 hoax, a Las Vegas woman found a human finger in Wendy's chili but police later discovered she had cooked her husband's colleague's finger (which he had lost in a work accident) and slipped it into the bowl herself.
    • An Albany-area man allegedly found a bloody bandage in the crust of his Pizza Hut pie in 2011.
    • Also in 2011, Texan woman found blood on her French fries while eating at a Houston-area Crackle Barrel.

  • Man Protests "All You Can Eat Fish Fry" For Cutting Him Off

    Posted by Mike DuBord

    Hey, hey! Ho, ho! Gimme more fish and pizza, bro!

    A Wisconsin man got cut off after he wolfed down a dozen pieces of fish at an all-you-can-eat fish fry, so he did what any red-blooded American would do: he made a picket sign and protested.

    Bill Wisth -- a fish-eating machine at 6-foot-6-inches tall and 350 lbs -- was miffed when workers at his favorite local restaurant in Thiensville, Chuck's Place, said they were running out of yummy sea creatures.

    "It's false advertising," Wisth told TMJ4. "We asked for more fish, and they refused to give us more fish."

    Fed up with his whining, workers gave him eight more pieces of fish to go, but it wasn't enough. Wisth called police -- a move that turned up no results -- and came back two days later with a picket sign.

    "I think that people have to stand up for consumers," he said.

    The eatery didn't change its policy for Wisth. Waitress Elizabeth Roeming said the man has been a problem for years, and has a substantial tab he hasn't yet paid off, the Associated Press reported.

    But Wisth said he's not done fighting the great fish fight, nor is he finished with fish-fry Fridays at Chuck's Place. Heck, he still admits the food is irresistible.

    "They do have like some of the best pizza in town, if you like deep dish pizza," he told TMJ4.

    He plans to picket every Sunday until the restaurant lets him eat all he can eat.

    Rattlesnake
    Mica Craig, 47, was shopping in the outdoor garden department of an Idaho Wal-Mart when he was bitten by a rattlesnake (not pictured)

    LEWISTON, Idaho -- A man says he reached down to pick up a stick lying in the gardening aisle of a Wal-Mart in eastern Washington state, only to discover that it was a rattlesnake that then bit his hand.

    Mica Craig says he was shopping in the outdoor garden department of a Clarkston store when he was bitten Saturday. The 47-year-old man says it latched onto his hand and that he screamed, shook loose the snake and stomped it to death.

    He says doctors expect him to remain hospitalized until Tuesday.

  • Man Attempts To Rob Police Station, Which Proves Once Again...Stupid People Exist Everywhere!

    Posted by Mike DuBord

    Keithan Manuel
    Keithan Manuel is accused of attempting to rob a Dallas police station. He claims he was just joking, but that didn't stop cops from arresting him.

    Keithan Manuel is learning the hard way that a sense of humor is very subjective, but that's what happens when you attempt to rob a police station.

    Manuel walked into a police station in suburban Dallas on Saturday evening with a white towel covering his hands and told the dispatcher to hand over money, CBS News reported.

    Although Manuel has claimed that he was just pulling a practical joke, Police Chief Victor Kemp said the suspect didn't seem to be acting like a jokester.

    "He said he’d like to check on a warrant, but it was pretty obvious it was a situation. He gave a different name and after a few moments of maybe playing it off he said, 'You do know I have a gun,'" Kemp told KTVT-TV. "At that point he seemed to be very serious. She called for officers immediately. The officers arrived and were able to take him down at gunpoint."

    Police took Manuel down and determined he did not have a weapon. Meanwhile, he denies saying he was carry a gun.

    "I didn't say nothing like that, I swear to God I didn't say nothing like that; that's why they didn’t find no guns on me," Manuel told the station. "Man, I play like that all the time, I didn’t think she would take it seriously."

    Apparently, he was wrong.

    Manuel was arrested and charged with robbery and theft. He is currently being held in Dallas County Jail with bonds totaling $300,000.

     
     

     

  • Parents Told Their Baby Is On "The No Fly List" And Pulled From Flight.

    Posted by Mike DuBord

    18-month-old Riyanna was pulled from a JetBlue flight (WPBF.com)The parents of an 18-month-old girl say they were "humiliated" after being pulled off a plane and told their young child had been placed on a no-fly list.

    After boarding a JetBlue flight in Ft. Lauderdale, the parents of young Riyanna, who asked to remain anonymous over fears of repercussions, were told the Transportation Security Agency (TSA) wanted to interview their toddler.

    "And I said, 'For what?'" Riyanna's mother told ABC affiliate WPBF 25 News on Wednesday. "And he said, 'Well, it's not you or your husband. Your daughter was flagged as no fly.' I said, 'Excuse me?'"

    Whoever is to blame, the parents say they believe the incident began because they are both of Middle Eastern descent and because the wife wears a hijab, a traditional headscarf. A 2011 poll from the Pew Research Center found that Muslim Americans say they believe they are disproportionately singled out by airport security officers.

    Eventually, the couple were given their boarding passes back. Interesting, both JetBlue and the TSA tell WPBF they weren't responsible for the incident. The TSA says that because the couple and their child were eventually issued boarding passes, Riyanna could not have been on the no-fly list.

    "TSA did not flag this child as being on the No Fly list," the group said in a statement to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. "TSA was called to the gate by the airline and after talking to the parents and confirming through our vetting system, TSA determined the airline had mistakenly indicated the child was on a government watch list."

    JetBlue told WPBF that both the airline and the TSA are investigating the incident.

    "We were humiliated. We were embarrassed. We were picked on," Riyanna's father told the station.

     

    The family decided to leave the airport rather than return to the flight
