New hi-tech weapons provide more ways to kill
The Age | Submitted by: UncleGum
"They loiter. They sleep. They hide. And when an enemy sticks his neck out, they kill... The US Department of Defence is preparing new weapons that can loiter over a battlefield or sneak into enemy territory and "sleep" until an appropriate military target blunders into their sights... For the next generation of UAVs, the Pentagon wants still longer dwell time so they can "sit above an area for a very long time, to track a small band of terrorists or watch for an armoured column."

Pet lion causing man to lose sleep
Miami Herald | Submitted by: neon
"The first roar woke Dick Riddle at 1:14 a.m. Another jolted him awake at 2:28 a.m., and one more at 5:05 a.m...

You run away, you die, now piss off
Seattle Post-Intelligencer | Submitted by: Jeanettycakes
"Because of a lack of knowledge, indifference or poor training, police officers in Washington state, and around the nation, routinely fail to take even the most obvious steps, conduct routine follow-ups or comply with the law when handling missing-persons cases...The small-town police chief can't see what all the fuss is all about, or how it relates to him. 'What's there to talk about?' asked police Chief Randy Blackburn. 'She ran away, she wound up dead. End of story.'"

Hundreds of Utah kids hold anti-porn rally
kutv.com | Submitted by: Porn Lover
"Say no to porno, say no to porno.... Several hundred kids, some of them bussed in from rural Utah, marched on the capitol, chanting against depictions of sex... The kids didn't have any specific measures they want from the legislature, but they're against sexy magazine covers like this one from a supermarket checkout line. They're against some billboards and they're against a lot of what you see on television." Umm, kids (and these are actually teenagers) like porn. Even if someone talks them into attending a rally.

Air Force cadets reprimanded for reporting their rapes
CNN | Submitted by: Boat6float
"Five women, four of whom have left the academy, were treated as if they were either crazy or promiscuous, said Dorothy Mackey, who founded a group that tracks sexual assaults in the military and has talked with the cadets... After a hearing the academy decided not to press charges against her attacker, and the cadet said Gilbert [academy commandant, Brig. Gen.] criticized her conduct. "If I walk down a dark alley with hundred-dollar bills hanging out of my pockets, it doesn't justify my being attacked or robbed, but I certainly increased the risk by doing what I did,' [he said in a statement]."

The Sacred of the Profane, Sports Division
Flak Magazine | Submitted by: Sportz Nut
It's the seven greatest moments of swearing in sports history, from Pete Rose's review of Jim Bouton's "Ball Four" ("Fuck you, Shakespeare!") to Allen Iverson's rap record ("Come to me with faggot tendencies/And you'll be sleepin' where the maggots be"). Who knew that Bob Costas once said "blow job" on the air? Why doesn't he say it more often?

Firms offer ways to foil drug tests
Washington Post | Submitted by: DL Deltoid
Obviously, people are willing to to any "lengths" to fool corporate drug testing in the office place. But can you blame anyone trying to protect themselves from apparent unlawful search and seizure? I thought you were innocent until proven guilty. See the middle of the story regarding prosthetic solutions. Not really anything new, but it does note the widespread disdain of drug testing practices. Authorities ought to learn that such disdain has the effect making the authority they think they have, negligible.
