Birds Falling From The Sky... Fish And Crabs Washing Up On Shores... What In The World Is Going On? News Flash: It's Not The First Time...

0 comments
Unless you've been living under a rock the last few days, you've seen the headlines about hundreds, and in some cases, thousands of birds literally dropping from the sky. Thousands of dead fish are washing ashore around the globe. Dead crabs are washing ashore. What in the world is going on?

While it's still a mystery, this same type of thing has happened before. Here's an excerpt from a 2007 article entitled Dead birds rain down on towns half a world apart from the DailyMail.co.uk:

Officials are baffled by the unexplained deaths which have affected Australia and the U.S.

Three weeks ago thousands of crows, pigeons, wattles and honeyeaters fell out of the sky in Esperance, Western Australia.

Then last week dozens of grackles, sparrows and pigeons dropped dead on two streets in Austin, Texas.

As birds continue to die in Esperance and the town's dawn chorus remains eerily silent, vets in both countries have been unable to establish a cause of death - despite carrying out a large number of autopsies on the birds. Continue reading...


Fast forward to 2011, and it's happening again, but this time, it's not just birds. Here is a rundown of what's happened worldwide so far:

3,000 dead red-winged blackbirds fall out of sky in Arkansas


Dead fish cover 20-miles of Arkansas River


Hundreds of birds dead in western Kentucky


450 birds found dead in Louisiana


1000's of dead birds on bridge in Texas


1000's of dead fish in creek in Florida


50 dead jackdaws (birds) found on city street in Sweden


100 tons of sardines, croaker and catfish wash up dead on Brazilian coast


'Carpet' of dead snapper on NZ beaches


Over 2 Million dead fish wash ashore in Maryland


40,000 dead 'devil' crabs wash ashore in Britain

Southwest Airlines Offering Unbelievably Low Airfares - 72-Hour Sale

0 comments
Southwest Airlines started a 72-hour sale today, and the fares are unbelievable. They're offering fares of $25, $50, $75 and $100. Here's the quick scoop from Southwest itself:
We’ve tossed out the playbook! You’ve heard of throwback jerseys, but what about throwback fares? That’s right, for 72 hours you can score some of our most incredible deals of the year for travel Dec. 2 - Dec. 16, 2009 and Jan. 5 - Feb. 10, 2010.

With fares this low, you should invent a reason to go. But remember, there’s no “OT” on this sale. So put on your game face and score a cheap trip before it’s too late!

The sale ends on October 29, 2009 at 11:59PM.

John William Lomax Charged With Death of Connecticut Football Player

0 comments
John William Lomax has been charged with the death of University of Connecticut football player, Jasper Howard. The two were involved in a fight on the Connecticut campus on October 18th. According to The New York Times:
Lomax was also charged with conspiracy to commit assault and was being held on $2 million bail. The police announced the arrest at a news conference Tuesday afternoon. They also said that two other men had been arrested and charged related to the fight. Hakim Muhammad, 20, also of Bloomfield, was charged with conspiracy to commit assault and was being held on $750,000 bail and James Todd, 21, of Hartford, faces charges for allegedly pulling the fire alarm that sent students streaming out of a dance in the student union before the fight.

Lomax’s attorney, Deron Freeman, told The Hartford Courant earlier Tuesday that his client had been arrested in the morning after he had arrived at work. Freeman said Lomax “had nothing whatsoever to do with the stabbing” and had been trying to break up the fight.

Triboelectrification Is Halting The Space Shuttle's Launch - You Do Know What Triboelectrification Is, Right?

0 comments
Don't worry. I didn't know what it was either. What I found out is that in simple terms, it's static in the atmosphere. Specifically, here's how NASA.gov defines triboelectrification:

The skies look clear except for some high clouds, there’s no rain in the immediate forecast, so why might a rocket not launch? The answer is something called triboelectrification. While this isn’t a word you encounter every day, you might experience it if you walk across a dry carpet or brush up against a cat and then touch a metal surface: it’s static.

In the case of Ares I-X, flying through high-level clouds can generate “P-static” (P for precipitation), which can create a corona of static around the rocket that interferes with radio signals sent by or to the rocket. This would create problems when the rocket tries to transmit data down to the ground or if the Range Safety Officer at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station needed to send a signal to the flight termination system. Until the 45th Space Wing and observer aircraft indicate that the skies are clear, Ares I-X will wait them out.

Huh. Well, now you know what it is. Don't you feel smarter already...

VIDEO: Disney Offering Refunds For Baby Einstein Videos

Wow! This is interesting. Parents were complaining that Disney's Baby Einstein videos weren't as educational as Disney advertised, and now Disney is refunding parents who bought the videos. I guess the next time they push "educational" videos, they better make sure they're darn educational, huh?
