‘The Bomber’: Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev makes cover of Rolling Stone

Source: NY Daily News

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has made the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.

Boldly labeled "The Bomber," the teenaged Boston Marathon bombing
suspect's portrait is splashed across the upcoming August issue’s cover — usually reserved for rock stars and celebrities.

"How a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam and became a monster," the cover’s caption reads while showing him shaggy haired and unshaven in sepia-toned shading.

Tens of thousands of people and at least four retail chains have since vowed to boycott the magazine since it unveiled the controversial cover with many calling its decision "shameful," “sickening” and "glorifying" of an accused killer and terrorist.

Student Compares Toilet Water To Ice At Fast Food Joints, With Disturbing Results

A Florida student found that the ice at fast food restaurants is actually dirtier than the toilet water at the same establishment.

The student, 12-year-old Jasmine Roberts, hypothesized that the ice at fast food joints was probably dirtier than the toilets.
So she went to five fast food restaurants and collected samples.

She ordered cups of ice and put them in sterile beakers. She also went into bathrooms, flushed the toilet once, and collected a sample.

Internet celebrity sought in Clark man's murder

Source: ABC local

CLARK, N.J. (WABC) -- Authorities in Union County have issued an arrest warrant for internet celebrity "Kai the hatchet wielding hitchhiker" in the murder of Joseph Galfy, Jr. in Clark, New Jersey

The suspect is identified as Caleb Lawrence McGillvary, a 24-year-old Internet celebrity and is well known on Facebook and YouTube as "Kai the Hatchet Wielding Hitchhiker."

McGillvary gamed fame online for his intervention in a Feb. 1 attack in Fresno, California. He was riding with a man who drove into a utility worker. The Fresno Bee reported that McGallivary pulled a hatchet from his backpack and struck the driver in the head after he confronted the Pacific Gas & Electric worker.

McGillvary is homeless but considers himself "homefree" and relies on the generosity of strangers for food, lodging and transportation.

Convicted Pa. Abortion Doctor Gets Life in Prison

Source: CBS

A Philadelphia abortion doctor convicted of killing three babies born alive at his grimy clinic was spared a possible death sentence Tuesday in a deal with prosecutors.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell gave up his right to appeal and in return will spend life in prison. Gosnell, 72, was found guilty Monday of first-degree murder in a case that became a flashpoint in the nation's abortion debate.

Former clinic employees testified that Gosnell routinely performed illegal abortions past Pennsylvania's 24-week limit, that he delivered babies who were still moving, whimpering or breathing, and that he and his assistants dispatched the newborns by "snipping" their spines, as he referred to it.

Prosecutors had sought the death penalty because Gosnell killed more than one person, and his victims were especially vulnerable given their age. But Gosnell's own advanced age had made it unlikely he would ever be executed before his appeals ran out.

REPORT: $6 Million Worth Of Hair Donations To Locks Of Love Have Gone Missing

Source: Businessinsider.com

Hold onto your ponytails: A new report alleges that Locks of Love — a well-known charity that makes wigs for children suffering from medical hair loss — has disclosure inadequacies that could total up to $6 million annually.

Locks of Love reportedly receives around 104,000 hair donations per year to make "hair prosthetics," according to the report by Nonprofit Investor, an organization that evaluates charities.

That should be enough to produce around 2,080 hairpieces, taking into account that 80% of donated hair can't be used (too short, gray, or bleached), and that it takes six to 10 donations to make a Locks of Love wig.

But in 2011, Locks of Love made just 317 of its custom-fitted wigs, according to Nonprofit Investor.

I've known so many high school girls who have donated their hair to this organization. Is it a scam. ?

Western Black Rhino Declared Extinct

According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, Africa’s western black rhino is now officially extinct. After being a victim of increasingly devastating poaching and seeing little to no conservation efforts, the species is now gone, and others – including the northern white rhino and Asia’s Javan rhino – are expected to swiftly follow unless efforts to stop the senseless killing of them prevail.

The black rhino had not been seen in West Africa since 2006, and had been on the IUCN’s Red List of Threatened Species since then.

“The situation could have had very different results if the suggested conservation measures had been implemented,” said Simon Stuart, chair of the IUCN species survival commission. “These measures must be strengthened now, specifically managing habitats in order to improve performance, preventing other rhinos from fading into extinction.”

O’Connor: U.S Supreme Court may have blown it by getting involved in 2000 election

Source: Kansas City Star

Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman U.S. Supreme Court justice, is expressing doubts over the court’s historic involvement in the 2000 presidential election.

Just maybe, O’Connor said over the weekend, the high court should have stayed out of the 2000 election.

“Maybe the court should have said, ‘We’re not going to take it, goodbye,’” O’Connor told the Chicago Tribune editorial board in reference to the controversial Bush v. Gore decision. “It turned out the election authorities in Florida hadn’t done a real good job there and kind of messed it up. And probably the Supreme Court added to the problem at the end of the day.”

It’s not the first time O’Connor has expressed doubt about siding with the majority in the 5-4 decision. In a 2010 interview, she said she didn’t know if it was right. But, she added, she didn’t worry about it because several recounts found that Bush would have won the state regardless.

What a crock of shit! The recounts found that Gore would have won. Hey bitch, feel guilty about all those people killed in the Iraq war?
