    May 20, 2006 -- A school of piranhas on display at an aquatic center has been forced to diet after packing on weight during captivity. The razor-toothed predators, capable of stripping whole animals to the bone, will be fed only half-meals at their British aquatic-center home. "Each mealtime has turned into a frantic feeding frenzy as they fight for chunks of trout, prawns and mussels," said Lynsey Thompson, of Birmingham's Sea Life Center.

    Then again, maybe not so much a "puppy" LOL. Maybe a BIG puppy

    Not as cute as RX's new puppies (see pics on the crusty site) but still ... what an adorable face! Sam definitely has character

    Squirrel Causes Large Power Outage
    Last Update: 5/22/2006 4:44:31 PM
    www.9wsyr.com

    Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - A squirrel got into the substation at the Peat Street substation in Syracuse around 11:40 this morning, and caused a very large power outage. Some customers in the University Section and lower north side of the city were without power for up to an hour.

    National Grid says about 7,700 customers lost power. 4,400 had power returned within 35 minutes. The rest had power within about an hour.

    The squirrel was electrocuted.

    May 23, 2006 -- It was a real gas filling up at a service station in Hammond, Ind. Seems a pump malfunctioned and was selling gas for 29 cents a gallon instead of $2.79. In the hour-and-a-half before the error was detected and corrected, 50 people filled up.

    May 24, 2006 -- When Matthew Allen got stuck after falling down the chimney of a house in Brawley, Calif., he took off his pants and waved them around to set off the motion detectors. Police responded twice to check for an intruder - but found none. Only after neighbors reported hearing a commotion inside the house did they locate Allen. They arrested Allen on a burglary charge - not buying his claim that he had fallen down the chimney while doing some star-gazing on the roof.

    May 25, 2006 -- Rush-hour traffic came to a halt on the Florida Turnpike in Palm Beach -while an alligator slithered across the road. State police, alerted by alarmed motorists, stopped northbound traffic until the gator made it across the PGA Boulevard exit ramp. It was last seen slinking into a nearby canal - which apparently is why the gator crossed the road.

    Mom, Dad, Son Share Birthday

    POSTED: 3:38 pm EDT May 24, 2006

    SANTA MARIA, Calif. -- It won't be hard to remember birthdays in one southern California family.

    Evelin Alballat and husband Tony Osman share May 21 as their birthday.

    Now, their son, Danny, has the same birthday, too.

    Alballat said she didn't plan it that way. She went into labor the night of May 20, the baby's due date. About 12 hours later, little Danny Osman entered the world.

    New dad Tony Osman said they're dumbfounded. He added that future family birthdays will be celebrated with one big cake and a vacation.

    Scientists ponder invisibility cloak
    By ANDREW BRIDGES, Associated Press Writer
    Thu May 25, 2:09 PM ET

    WASHINGTON - Imagine an invisibility cloak that works just like the one Harry Potter inherited from his father.

    Researchers in England and the United States think they know how to do that. They are laying out the blueprint and calling for help in developing the exotic materials needed to build a cloak.

    The keys are special manmade materials, unlike any in nature or the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. These materials are intended to steer light and other forms of electromagnetic radiation around an object, rendering it as invisible as something tucked into a hole in space.

    "Is it science fiction? Well, it's theory and that already is not science fiction. It's theoretically possible to do all these Harry Potter things, but what's standing in the way is our engineering capabilities," said John Pendry, a physicist at the Imperial College London.

    Details of the study, which Pendry co-wrote, appear in Thursday's online edition of the journal Science.

    Scientists not involved in the work said it presents a solid case for making invisibility an attainable goal.

    "This is very interesting science and a very interesting idea and it is supported on a great mathematical and physical basis," said Nader Engheta, a professor of electrical and systems engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. Engheta has done his own work on invisibility using novel materials called metamaterials.

    Pendry and his co-authors also propose using metamaterials because they can be tuned to bend electromagnetic radiation — radio waves and visible light, for example — in any direction.

    A cloak made of those materials, with a structure designed down to the submicroscopic scale, would neither reflect light nor cast a shadow.

    Instead, like a river streaming around a smooth boulder, light and all other forms of electromagnetic radiation would strike the cloak and simply flow around it, continuing on as if it never bumped up against an obstacle. That would give an onlooker the apparent ability to peer right through the cloak, with everything tucked inside concealed from view.

    "Yes, you could actually make someone invisible as long as someone wears a cloak made of this material," said Patanjali Parimi, a Northeastern University physicist and design engineer at Chelton Microwave Corp. in Bolton, Mass. Parimi was not involved in the research.

    Such a cloak does not exist, but early versions that could mask microwaves and other forms of electromagnetic radiation could be as close as 18 months away, Pendry said. He said the study was "an invitation to come and play with these new ideas."

    "We will have a cloak after not too long," he said.

    The Pentagon's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency supported the research, given the obvious military applications of such stealthy technology.

    While Harry Potter could wear his cloak to skulk around Hogwarts, a real-world version probably would not be something just to be thrown on, Pendry said.

    "To be realistic, it's going to be fairly thick. Cloak is a misnomer. 'Shield' might be more appropriate," he said.

    Police: Burglars Bring Toddler Along During Crime

    POSTED: 6:58 am EDT May 26, 2006

    WARREN, Ohio -- Police in Warren, Ohio, made an unexpected discovery when they pulled over three men suspected of trying to break into a home in that northeastern Ohio city.

    The 2-year-old son of one of the suspects was sleeping in the car's back seat.

    Police said the father told officers that he brought the boy along Thursday because he couldn't find a baby sitter. The boy is now in the custody of his grandmother.

    His father and the other two suspects are charged with breaking and entering and possession of criminal tools. The father also is charged with child endangerment.

    May 26, 2006 -- A judge in Sidney, Neb., sentenced a convicted child molester to 10 years' probation instead of jail - because of his height.
    She said the pervy 5-foot-1 perp deserved a long sentence but was too short to survive in prison. But she warned that she'll throw him in prison if he violates the strict terms of his probation.

    May 28, 2006 -- Marjorie Thompson became annoyed by a sheriff's helicopter hovering over her house and decided a good response would be to start firing bottle rockets at it. Bad idea. Thompson, 44, of Orlando, Fla., was caught as she launched one of the rockets, and is facing felony charges of shooting a deadly missile at an aircraft.

    May 31, 2006 -- An Ohio inventor is looking for investors to finish a prototype of his latest creation - a cordless jump-rope. After being awarded official Patent No. 7037243 earlier this month, Lester Clancy, 52, of Mansfield, says he can finally develop the idea that has been kicking around in his head since 1998. With just two handles, jumpers have to pretend to go over the rope. What makes the invention work are mobile weights inside that simulate the feel of a rope moving, Clancy said.

    KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) -- A man wearing a purple women's bathing suit and carrying a flare gun was arrested after he told a bartender he was going to "get rid of all the dirt bags in Key West," authorities said. Jeffrey C. Anderson, 55, was charged with carrying a concealed firearm Monday after he brandished the flare gun, which was under a skirt he was wearing, Key West police spokeswoman Christie Phillips said. The bartender, who was not identified, was working in the downstairs bar of The Bull and Whistle, a popular Key West watering hole located on Duval Street. "She reported she had seen a man, later identified as Anderson, dancing in the street showing tourists his private parts, and asking people for money when they took his picture," the news release said. The bartender said Anderson then approached her, telling her he was going to get rid of the city's "dirt bags" before displaying the gun, police said. Police quickly located Anderson and found an orange 12-gauge flare gun in his possession, Phillips said. He was transported to the Monroe County detention center. It was not clear if he had a lawyer.

    Duck ala ronge anyone?

    Duck X-Ray Reveals 'Alien Head'

    POSTED: 6:14 pm EDT May 27, 2006
    UPDATED: 6:33 pm EDT May 27, 2006

    CORDELIA, Calif. -- Researchers in California claim to have a duck X-ray showing what appears to be an “alien creature” in the bird's stomach.

    The International Bird Rescue Research Center in Cordelia plans to raise funds with the X-ray.

    The bird came in with a broken wing. But when assistant manager Marie Travers radiographed the duck, she was stunned to see a very clear image of what supposedly looked like the face, or head, of an extraterrestrial.

    Unfortunately, the duck died of its injuries.

    Initial reports from the center claimed the cause of the supposed alien face was never determined. Necropsy results are pending.

    It may all sound like a lot of quackery, but the center has come up with a way to turn its close encounter into a fundraiser for the center. It will auction off the X-ray on eBay.
