Indiana Supreme Court rules on shoe cam peeper


INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — An appeal has failed for a man who attached a camera to his shoe to take video up teenagers’ skirts at Castleton Square Mall.

The Indiana Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld David Delagrange’s conviction for child exploitation.

Delagrange was arrested in 2010 after a store employee reported his suspicious behavior at the mall. Officers found the camera he was using. A jury convicted him and a judge sentenced him to six months in prison.

More than a year ago, a state appeals court threw out the child exploitation conviction, arguing the children in this case weren’t performing a sexual act. The Indiana Supreme Court, instead, agreed with the trial court.

Pvt. Manning seeks formal name change to Chelsea


The Army private who was tried and convicted as Bradley Edward Manning for leaking U.S. secrets to WikiLeaks is petitioning a Kansas court for a name change, to Chelsea Elizabeth Manning.

Leavenworth County District Court has scheduled an April 23 hearing on the request, according to a Leavenworth Times legal notice sent Wednesday to The Associated Press by a spokesman at Fort Leavenworth, where Manning is serving a 35-year sentence. The petition was filed Jan. 27 and published March 1 after it was submitted by Manning’s lawyer, David Coombs of Providence, Rhode Island.

Coombs didn’t immediately respond to questions about the petition. Manning said in an October letter to supporters that Coombs would help her with the name change.

The Private Manning Support Network announced the petition on its website Wednesday. The group also said it is changing its name to the Chelsea Manning Support Network.

Ex-Democratic Chairman Robert Strauss dies at 95


WASHINGTON (AP) — Bob Strauss could work with anybody — Democrats and Republicans, Americans and Soviets, Israelis and Arabs. Playing the game and making the deal made his day.

Of Strauss' many accomplishments — earning a fortune in postwar investments, co-founding an international law firm, leading the Democratic Party, running one successful presidential campaign and surviving the loss of another — being welcome on either side of the political street might have been the achievement he most treasured.

A Strauss specialty was what he called "the art of making things happen instead of just tilting at windmills." A little sign he had kept on his desk put it succinctly: "It CAN be done."

"He is absolutely the most amazing politician," former first lady Barbara Bush wrote of the prominent Democratic powerbroker who died Wednesday at his home in Washington at 95. "He is everybody's friend and, if he chooses, could sell you the paper off your own wall."

Ex Microsoft staffer arrested for allegedly stealing Win 8 trade secrets


Alex Kibkalo, a former senior architect at Microsoft who most recently served as a director of product management in 5nine Software (according to his LinkedIn profile), has been arrested for allegedly stealing Windows-related trade secrets while working for Microsoft.

Kibkalo was arrested on Wednesday, according to a report in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

According to a complaint filed on March 17 in the US District Court for the Western District of Washington, Kibkalo -- a Russian national and former Microsoft employee based in Lebanon -- passed on trade secrets involving Windows 8 to an unnamed technology blogger in France.

Microsoft's own investigation found that Kibkalo "uploaded proprietary software including prerelease software updates for Windows 8 RT and ARM devices, as well as the Microsoft Activation Server Software Development Kit (SDK) to a computer in Redmond, Washington, and subsequently to his personal Windows Live SkyDrive account." Kibkalo is then said to have provided the blogger with links to the file on his account.

Houdini cat: Meet Chamallow, the feline escape artist



A vet has renamed one animal in his care ‘the king of escape’, in a nod to the feline’s ability to break free from any cage in the practice

Adopted cat Chamallow simply refused to be held captive, causing havoc for staff at a Marseille veterinary clinic in France.

Staff at the veterinary practice had been baffled as to how their adopted cat broke free from its cage every night, until they placed a camera in front of him one evening.

Footage shows Chamallow breaking free with ease from two cages – although he has perfected his skills as an escape artist on many more.
