Some swim meet pics of my Brother-in-law – Adam, 17, Swim Team Cap’n.
Quite a little stud muffin – he’s very popular with the ladies, especially while being all sporty. He’s really a great guy, and is very talented across the board – Physics, guitar, athletics. If he wants, he could go anywhere or do anything he might choose. He suffers a little bit from teenager-itis, but he’s generally a gentleman and all-around good guy. I’m glad to have him in my family.
DELRAY BEACH, Fla. – A partially mummified baby was found wrapped in newspaper in a warehouse self-storage unit and is believed to have been born sometime in the 1950s, authorities said.
The remains were found Monday in 1950s-era papers inside a suitcase contained inside a second suitcase.
The storage unit had been rented by a couple in 1996, but the man died several years ago and the woman diedin the past year, said police spokesman Officer Jeff Messer.
“We’re not giving out any names yet because we’re finding more than one or two people had access to their warehouse,” Messer said Tuesday.
Investigators believe it’s a “very safe bet” the baby was born as early as the 1950s, but until the autopsy is completed, details remain murky, Messer said. An autopsy was scheduled Tuesday.
The body was found by the couple’s daughter, who came from New Jersey after being told that the contents of the storage unit would be auctioned off because the rent had not been paid, police said.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The keepers of the “Doomsday Clock” plan to move its hands forward next Wednesday to reflect what they call worsening nuclear and climate threats to the world.
The symbolic clock, maintained by the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, currently is set at seven minutes to midnight, with midnight marking global catastrophe.
The group did not say in which direction the hands would move. But in a news release previewing an event next Wednesday, they said the change was based on “worsening nuclear, climate threats” to the world.
“The major new step reflects growing concerns about a ‘Second Nuclear Age’ marked by grave threats, including: nuclear ambitions in Iran and North Korea, unsecured nuclear materials in Russia and elsewhere, the continuing ‘launch-ready’ status of 2,000 of the 25,000 nuclear weapons held by the U.S. and Russia, escalating terrorism, and new pressure from climate change for expanded civilian nuclear power that could increase proliferation risks,” the release reads.
The clock was last pushed forward by two minutes to seven minutes to midnight in 2002 amid concerns about the proliferation of nuclear, biological and other weapons and the threat of terrorism.
When it was created by the magazine’s staff in 1947, it was initially set at seven minutes to midnight and has moved 17 times since then.
It was as close as two minutes to midnight in 1953 following U.S. and Soviet hydrogen bomb tests, and as far away as 17 minutes to midnight in 1991 after the superpowers reached agreement on a nuclear arms reductions.
