Man botches home castration, flees
wpxi.com | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Police said Doug Lenhart, 48, of Lower Burrell, used stainless steel clamps and tools that appear rudimentary at best to perform a botched castration. He has no medical license. The victim in the case is a transgender female, meaning she was born with both male and female genitalia, police said. ... Last Friday, Lenhart, an engineer by trade and with no medical training, performed a crude castration in the dining room of the victim's home. Police said when Lenhart couldn't control the bleeding, he bolted and the victim called 911. ... Before he fled, police said Lenhart tossed the victim's private parts in a garbage can."

Police confiscate star of bestiality videos
Indianapolis Star | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Loren J. Adams ... says he likes to watch animals have sex with humans because it's taboo. 'It's kind of like a train wreck,' explains Adams, who was in court Monday as part of his ongoing legal troubles regarding this matter. 'Nobody wants to see the blood, guts and gore. But everybody slows down to watch it.' That logic explains how Adams justifies owning videos depicting animals and people having sex. ... It said that Adams was advertising the use of his own dog for sex. Indianapolis Police Department detectives were assigned to the case, and two undercover police officers, pretending to be interested in making a movie with Adams, met him at a bar. He invited them to his Southwestside mobile home."

Did I say 'bury the evidence'?
Globe and Mail | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"The head of a Montana cattlemen's group criticized the premier of Alberta for saying Canada's mad cow scare could have been avoided if the rancher who owned the sick animal had simply killed and buried it. Premier Ralph Klein said his comment to the Western Governors' Association meeting in Big Sky, Montana, Sunday was made in jest, and he was just reflecting on the 'absurd situation' Canada has found itself in since the mad cow discovery in Alberta in May. ... Mr. Klein said the rancher who owned the cow 'knew nothing about cattle ranching,' then added: 'I guess any self-respecting rancher would have shot, shovelled and shut up,' rather than ship the sickly animal for slaughter."

Britain becoming ever more cruisy
BBC | Submitted by: Caipora
"The internet and text messaging are fuelling a practice which involves unprotected sex with strangers in public parks. Health chiefs in Kent have taken to posting messages on sites promoting 'dogging' -- warning of a rise in sexually-transmitted diseases. ... Dogging is an extension of 'swinging' parties -- and involves exhibitionist sex in semi-secluded locations such as car parks or country parks. The location of dogging 'events' is now frequently advertised on websites or communicated via mobile phone text message. Those attracted by these messages may simply act as voyeurs -- or be invited to participate."

Police jail terror suspect based on LaRouche info
Stuff NZ | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Police are under attack for relying on the cult website of a convicted fraudster which links asylum seeker Ahmed Zaoui with a terrorist group. ... The website is that of an elderly failed American presidential candidate, Lyndon LaRouche, who is also a convicted fraudster who has stood for President in elections since 1976. LaRouche was sent to prison after being convicted in the late 1980s of swindling elderly people for campaign money and tax evasion. Time magazine reports he has accused Queen Elizabeth 2 of drug trafficking and blamed the International Monetary Fund for creating and spreading the Aids virus. ... Ced Simpson, Amnesty International's New Zealand executive director, said basing information on a website like LaRouche was hardly reliable. 'If that's where the police derive information about threats to security then that's very disturbing.'"

VeriSign gets their asses sued
Reuters | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"An Internet search company on Thursday filed a $100 million antitrust lawsuit against VeriSign Inc., accusing the Web address provider of hijacking misspelled and unassigned Web addresses with a service it launched this week. VeriSign's new SiteFinder service takes searches for '.com' and '.net' Web addresses that are not spelled correctly or have not yet been registered and redirects them to a VeriSign Web page that includes options and pay-for-placement topic links. ... The lawsuit filed in federal court in Orlando, Florida, alleges antitrust violations, unfair competition and violations of the Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act and asks the court to order VeriSign to put a halt to the service."

Kid builds fusion reactor for science project
Deseret News | Submitted by: snoggeramus
"[Craig] Wallace, a baby-faced tennis player fresh out of Spanish Fork High School, had almost the entire physics faculty of Utah State University hovering (and arguing) over an apparatus he had cobbled together from parts salvaged from junk yards and charity drops. The apparatus is nothing less than the sine qua non of modern science: a nuclear fusion reactor, based on the plans of Utah's own Philo Farnsworth, the inventor of television. The reactor sat on a table with an attached vacuum pump wheezing away. A television monitor showed what was inside: a glowing ball of gas surrounded by a metal helix. The ball is, literally, a small sun, where an electric field forces deuteron ions (a form of hydrogen) to gather, bang together and occasionally fuse, spitting out a neutron each time fusion occurs."

Fluoridation on trial in Washington state
News Tribune | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"From police power to tooth decay, Washington State Supreme Court justices pressed lawyers with questions Thursday as they waded into a debate over fluoridated water in Pierce County. At the center of the dispute is an order by the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Board, which demands that 14 local water purveyors put fluoride in water to prevent cavities among children. ... The water suppliers have insisted on a public vote before adding fluoride to the water. They fear lawsuits from residents if they obey the health board's order."

Russians lured into mushroom maze
BBC | Submitted by: TrujilloX
"A bumper mushroom crop in Russia this year has pleased everyone except officials of the Emergencies Ministry in St Petersburg. They are the ones that have to go looking for mushroom hunters who get lost in the forests near the city -- a total of 121 people since 1 August. Most missing mushroomers are found within 24 to 48 hours, although the ministry says 11 are currently unaccounted for. ... The discovery of hallucinogenic mushrooms in the area in recent years raises the possibility that some lost people may not just have taken a wrong turning."

Cancer researchers testing the wrong cells
New Scientist | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Countless research projects around the world into cancer and other major diseases are producing bogus or misleading results because investigators are studying the wrong type of cell. The mistakes arise when fast-growing 'rogue cells' contaminate cell cultures and swamp the correct cells. A team's work on prostate cancer, for example, might turn out to be worthless because cells researchers thought were prostate cancer cells turn out to be cervical cancer cells. Although the danger has been known about for decades, most researchers still fail to check the identity of the cells they are working with. ... The best estimates available suggest around a fifth of all experiments in fields such as cancer and microbiology involve the wrong cells."

Future not good for critical infrastructure networks
Business Week | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"As America's infrastructure heads toward a future of standardization based on Microsoft's chronically insecure Windows operating systems, it's becoming more imperative than ever to secure the networks that run these facilities. ... The Bush Administration has allocated nearly $1 billion in fiscal 2004 for protection of critical infrastructure, including cybersecurity. But little of that will go to the agencies and companies that are on the front lines of the battle. ... With a monstrous federal deficit looming and the war against terrorism being refocused for the moment as part of the massively expensive campaign in Iraq, the job of securing the digital backbone of America's critical infrastructure may get even less federal support in the coming years. That may look like a pragmatic decision now. But it could look penny-wise, pound foolish -- and nearly impossible to justify -- should someone figure out how to breach the computer networks that help provide America with transportation, power, electricity, and water."

Area 51 just got even more secret
azdailysun.com | Submitted by: Jonny Plasma
"Invoking national security, President Bush has renewed an exemption allowing the Air Force to keep mum about top-secret operations at a southern Nevada base. Bush's memorandum said it was of 'paramount interest' to exempt the Groom Lake base about 90 miles north of Las Vegas from disclosing classified information. Also known as Area 51, the mysterious base sits on a dry lake bed and is heavily patrolled. The area is in a no-fly zone. ... President Clinton first issued the base's exemption in 1995 in response to two lawsuits filed by injured workers seeking information about the military's environmental practices at the site. It has been renewed yearly."
