Argument over loud music led to teen's fatal shooting, cops say

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/breakingnews/os-teen-shot-dead-loud-music-20121126,0,4320738.story

A Brevard County man was in jail Monday, accused of shooting a teenager dead in an argument over loud music.

Jordan Russell Davis, 17, and several other teenagers were sitting in a sport utility vehicle in the parking lot when Dunn pulled up next to them in a car and asked them to turn down their music, Schoonover said.

Jordan and Dunn exchanged words, and Dunn pulled a gun and shot eight or nine times, striking Jordan twice, Schoonover said. Jordan was sitting in the back seat. No one else was hurt.

Dunn's attorney Monday said her client acted responsibly and in self-defense. She did not elaborate.

Dunn, a gun collector, was arrested Saturday at his home in Satellite Beach on charges of murder and attempted murder. He was being held without bai

Metro: Last Light Will Not Ship with Multiplayer

http://www.tomshardware.com/news/Metro-Last-Light-Multiplayer,18433.html

Though the game won't be shipping with multiplayer, 4A isn't completely sloughing off the single player: "Right now were 100% focused on the single player campaign and not thinking beyond that. We dont like throwing away work though, its a project we could potentially return to after Metro: Last Light ships." So while it sounds highly unlikely, there's still a slim, slim chance that 4A may end up working on a multiplayer component after all.


I was looking forward to this game, but now I'm really excited since single player is being given full attention.

Sweden Must Import Trash For Energy Conversion Because Its Recycling Program Is So Successful

Because it has become so good at recycling, Sweden now is importing 800,000 tons of trash each year from other European countries, including Norway, to power its waste-to-energy program, Public Radio International reports. Burned waste powers 20 percent of Sweden's district heating as well as electricity for roughly 250,000 Swedish homes.


In contrast, Americans recycled just 34 percent of their waste in 2010, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and more than half of U.S. household waste in 2010 ended up in landfills, 136 million tons of garbage in total.


I think if the US starting selling our trash to countries with waste to energy programs, we would probably make hundreds of billions of dollars per year. No more deficit!
