26 guns at home of man accused of Calif. threats

Police found 26 guns, thousands of bullets and dozens of high-capacity ammunition magazines at the home of a Santa Clara man charged with threatening to kill a state lawmaker over proposed gun control legislation, according to search warrants unsealed Thursday.

Authorities also reported finding what they describe as a homemade "destructive device" at the home of Everett Basham.

The 45-year-old was charged in February with possessing assault weapons, explosives and bomb-making materials, as well as threatening state Sen. Leland Yee. The Democrat from San Francisco has proposed legislation that would limit the rapid reloading of assault weapons.

...they seized and planned to analyze numerous computers, hard drives and cellphones seized from Basham, who once briefly worked for Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Wozniak.

Greek soccer player gets life ban for Nazi salute

AEK Athens midfielder Giorgos Katidis has been banned from any Greek national team for life after giving a Nazi salute while celebrating a goal in the Greek league.

Greece's football federation said Sunday in a statement that the player's gesture "is a deep insult to all victims of Nazi brutality."

The 20-year-old Katidis gave a Nazi salute after scoring the winner in AEK's 2-1 victory over Veria on Saturday. His action provoked an immediate and overwhelmingly negative response on social media. Katidis apologized on TV and Twitter, pleading ignorance about the meaning of the salute. "I am not racist in any way," Katidis said on his Twitter account, according to a Google translation.

AEK and the Greek league are also considering separate sanctions. AEK could also be penalized.

President Obama: There Is No Debt Crisis

Source: ABCNews.com

There has been no shortage of dire warnings about the mounting US national debt, but President Obama is now offering a different assessment: no big deal.

“We don’t have an immediate crisis in terms of debt,” President Obama said in an exclusive interview with George Stephanopoulos for “Good Morning America.” “In fact, for the next 10 years, it’s gonna be in a sustainable place.”

It’s an assessment that will throw cold water on the latest attempt to achieve a so-called grand bargain to reduce the deficit. After all, a grand bargain would require excruciatingly difficult decisions for both sides — for Republicans, it would mean raising taxes, and for Democrats, cutting future spending on cherished programs like Social Security and Medicare. If there is no crisis, why would either side do it?

Leo Carrillo Beach this afternoon (Pics)

I happened to stop just north of Malibu at Leo Carrillo Beach and all I had was my smartphone but I managed to snap these three pics showing the gorgeous day we were having this last day of February.



Treasure hunting in the tidepools.


Lonely lifeguard tower.
