This Firepit Doesn't Take Up Space While Not in Use

The problem with most fire pits is that when you aren't using them, they take up a lot of space. The clunky designs are nice to have, but they're hardly handy when your kids want to run in the yard. This cool Hole Fire Pit by Italian design firm AK47 let you have your yard and burn it too. The pit can be installed in any yard and aside from having a sturdy metal lid that lets you walk over it, it also has a grill attachment so you can grill up some snacks when you are using the fire pit.

Women's urinals have proved to be unpopular

Four women’s urinals installed in a convention center in Salzburg, Austria, have proven to be so unpopular that they might have to be removed - despite being lauded for their hygiene and water saving potential.
The urinals were installed 12 years ago, to some excitement as they were considered rather modern at the time. However, they failed to catch on and are now often locked and out of use. The manufacturers of the urinals said that when used correctly they are more sanitary than ‘sit down toilets’ as the user doesn’t have to come into contact with the seat.
They also take up less floor space - having only a small partition wall between each urinal - and use less water. The four women’s urinals in the Salzburg Congress building seemed to be a cause of confusion, Bert Brugger, boss of Tourismus Salzburg GmbH (TSG) said.
Some women believed they had mistakenly wandered into a men’s toilet and others just had no idea how to use them - although an illustration was available. Brugger confirmed that the urinals could soon be removed. Austria’s Chamber of Commerce said it doubted that women’s urinals would ever prove popular in Austria and that restaurants and guest houses were not keen on the idea.

Chemical warfare agent translation error led to office evacuation

An immigration office in western Germany was evacuated on Monday morning after a translator mistakenly said a refugee was carrying a bottle containing a “chemical warfare agent”.

The Dortmund Fire Brigade’s duty manager Athanassios Thanos confirmed reports that 48 of the city’s fire fighters, including a special decontamination group in protective suits, responded to a call that a visitor to the offices of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) was carrying deadly liquid in a bottle.
“We evacuated everyone, around 20 people,” Thanos said. “In the end, it turned out the translator made a mistake. After we analyzed the liquid, we found it was something similar to honey.” The translator was called to help a Serbian man file a request for asylum as the applicant could speak not speak German.
He told BAMF employees the man said he was carrying a “chemical weapon”. But the asylum applicant was actually trying to say the liquid would protect him from a chemical attack. The employees were told they could return to work a little more than an hour after they had been evacuated.

Mystery surrounds theft of 60 doorbells

Residents of Bendysh Road in Bushey, Hertfordshire, have reported that their doorbells were pulled apart. The police, who have received eight reports, are investigating the thefts and are appealing for witnesses.
They believe the incident happened between 7.30pm on Thursday and 10am on Friday. The offenders are reported to have pulled off the bell-push part of the doorbell and taken it with them.
Nick Green, who lives on the street said: "Approximately 60 doorbells in the area have been stolen. This is really annoying and we now have to spend money on replacing the bells. Whoever did this has literally pulled the bell apart and the only thing left is the plastic back."
Bushey north Councillor, Leslie Winters said: "I urge residents of Bendysh Road to go to the police if they have found their doorbell pulled apart. These people have done about a £1,000 worth of damage and need to be caught." If anyone has any information, they should contact the police.

Club bouncer guilty of 'manky feet' assault

A bouncer has been found guilty of assaulting a woman while throwing her out of a nightclub on account of her "manky feet". Danielle Kelly was left with cuts and bruises when she was "unceremoniously" ejected from Dusk nightclub in Stirling on 14 February after bouncer Michael Thom saw her with no shoes on. The 30-year-old was also convicted of grabbing another woman by the throat. Thom denied the charges, but was found guilty at Stirling Sheriff Court.
Ms Kelly, 20, told the court she had been instructed to sit in a booth at the club by another steward after she lost one of her high heels on the dance floor, before Thom intervened. She said: "He approached me and said my feet were manky, and I needed to get my shoes on or leave the club. He grabbed my by the arms and dragged me down three steps, and used my body to push through the fire exit onto an alleyway at the side of the nightclub. Because I was struggling he pushed me down onto a pile of stones. I got back up and he grabbed me again and chucked me back down and smacked me against a gate."
Ms Kelly's friends saw what was happening and followed, at which point Thom grabbed one of them, 19-year-old Amy Quinn, by the throat. Ms Quinn was uninjured, but Ms Kelly was left with cuts and bruises on her knees, a cut on the bottom of her back, and a bruise on her arm where Thom had grabbed her. Ms Quinn told the court: "He said she had manky feet and she had to get out." Thom, a licensed steward, of Kirkcaldy, insisted Ms Kelly "never fell", and claimed she was drunk and argumentative. He said he had told her she had to leave in case she cut her feet on the dance floor, and said he had joked: "I can smell your feet from here".

Finding him guilty of assaulting both girls, both from Falkirk, Sheriff Kenneth McGowan said there were inconsistencies in Thom's version of events. He said: "I think what happened here is that Mr Thom made an initial misjudgement in assessing the situation, and then he has lost his temper and committed these assaults. You pushed this lady out into an area where you had no idea what was underfoot - there could have been broken glass, anything." He deferred sentence until next month for clarification of means so Thom could be fined, and ordered him to be of good behavior in the meantime.

Man faces terrorist charge after brandishing scissors when told bar didn't sell orange juice

A man is facing multiple charges after he threatened the patrons of a bar with a pair of scissors after he was told the establishment doesn't serve orange juice.
Edward Iannacone, 50, was charged with making terrorist threats and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose following an incident on Wednesday night at the Chester House in Manville, New Jersey. Iannacone entered the bar at about 10:20pm and ordered an orange juice.
When the bar owner told him there the bar did not serve orange juice, Iannacone said, "Don't ever do that to me again," then left the bar, according to an affidavit filed in Superior Court. Iannacone returned to the bar about 30 minutes later. He held a pair of five-inch scissors over his head and said he would kill everyone in the bar, the affidavit said.
Iannacone then left the bar, but police had already been called. Arriving officers found him on the sidewalk and several people outside the bar identified him as the man with the scissors, the affidavit said. When Iannacone started walking toward the bar, he was tackled and "disarmed" by police, the affidavit said.

Boston Marathon suspect's sister pleads guilty

Sister of accused Boston marathon bombers arrested after alleged bomb threat
A sister of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev pleaded guilty Tuesday to misleading a police detective during a counterfeiting investigation, avoiding jail time in an agreement with prosecutors.
Ailina Tsarnaeva, 24, entered the plea in South Boston Municipal Court. If she avoids further legal trouble for 30 days, she will be free of any court supervision. If she does get into trouble, the judge could sentence her up to 2 ½ years in jail.
Prosecutors said Tsarnaeva failed to cooperate with a police officer investigating the passing of a counterfeit bill by a group of people eating at an Applebee's restaurant in the South Bay Center, a mall in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood, on April 16, 2010. A server saw the group leaving and wrote down their license plate number.
Police traced the car to Tsarnaeva at her family's Cambridge home. When questioned, Tsarnaeva said she did not know the names of the people she picked up from the restaurant, according to the police report. She also told police that she had not lied but "did not want to be a snitch," according to the report.
In court Tuesday, Tsarnaeva's lawyer, George Gormley, acknowledged that Tsarnaeva had misled police but said her motivation was to protect a female friend, not the person who allegedly passed the counterfeit bill. Gormley said he obtained the name of that person from Tsarnaeva's friend and gave it to prosecutors.
Assistant District Attorney William Champlin IV said the disposition was appropriate because of the age of the case and Tsarnaeva's acceptance of responsibility by pleading guilty.
Jake Wark, a spokesman for Suffolk District Attorney Daniel Conley, said prosecutors also considered separate charges pending against Tsarnaeva in New York, where she is accused of threatening to "put a bomb" on a perceived romantic rival.
"The most effective way of handling this and not interfering with her other pending case is to place this conviction on file, which allows the judge to re-sentence her if she re-offends at any time during the next 30 days and also prevents any appellate challenges to the conviction," Wark said.
Tsarnaeva left the courthouse without commenting, carrying an infant and covering her head with the hood of a fur coat.
Tsarnaeva's brother could be sentenced to death if he's found guilty in the marathon bombing, which killed three people and injured more than 260 others. He has pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trial in January.
Federal prosecutors say Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his older brother, Tamerlan, planted two bombs near the 2013 marathon finish line. Tamerlan Tsarnaev later was killed in a shootout with police.

43-year-old woman who told police she was 22 claimed to have medical condition that aged her

A Florida motorist said she suffered from a “medical condition that makes her age faster” when a suspicious police officer questioned her claim that she was 22, according to a police report.
Upon spotting a Ford Ranger with inoperable tail lights, an Indian River County Sheriff’s Office deputy pulled over the pickup on Saturday night and asked the driver for her license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. The woman “said she did not have her license because she forgot her purse,” according to a police report. The driver then identified herself as “Christina R. Topp with a date of birth of March 16th, 1992.”
Deputy Colby Smith noted that, “Immediately I was suspicious because the driver appeared significantly older than that.” After providing her social security number, Smith reported, “the driver could tell I was suspicious and went on to tell me that she has a medical condition that makes her age faster.” However, after the deputy accessed a database that provided a photo of Topp, the driver “admitted that her name was Jennifer R. Crosby and she gave me her daughter’s name because her driver’s license was suspended.”
The 43-year-old Crosby was then arrested for driving on a suspended license and providing a false name. The Vero Beach resident was booked into the county jail, where she remains locked up in lieu of $4000. Crosby was arrested in June for possession of crack cocaine, which she hid in a body orifice. While fishing out the narcotics for officers, Crosby said “ouch” and remarked, “the foil is hurting the inside of my vagina.”

How not to teach kids a lesson

How not to teach kids a lesson A 28-year-old woman was sentenced Thursday to three years in prison for planting a pistol in a child’s backpack and anonymously reporting him to the school.
Heather Hodges, who pleaded guilty to unlawful carrying of a weapon on restricted premises in exchange for the dismissal of two lesser charges, was the live-in girlfriend of the boy’s father but they had struggled as a blended family.
Hodges wanted to teach 13-year-old James Bailey McKeegan a lesson for what she considered to be the mistreatment of her own children, ages seven and four.
So she took her boyfriend’s 9-millimeter Smith and Wesson handgun, replaced the child’s cologne and deodorant in his backpack, and then called Magnolia Junior High School from a nearby payphone to report him by name.

What Different Religions Say About Aliens

As a consequence of the rapid discovery of planets around other stars, it's possible that within a few years astronomers will discover clear evidence of life beyond the Earth. Such a discovery of extraterrestrial life will change everything.
Religions have surprisingly diverse approaches to the issue of possible extraterrestrial life, according to 'Religions and Extraterrestrial Life: How Will We Deal With It?', a book by David Weintraub.

Cool Facts About Your Biological Clock

Feeling tired after turning the clock back? That's because the internal clock that controls your circadian rhythms needs time to adjust. Circadian rhythms are physical, mental and behavioral changes that follow a roughly 24-hour cycle, responding primarily to light and darkness in an organism's environment.
Our biological clocks drive our circadian rhythms. These internal clocks are groupings of interacting molecules in cells throughout the body. A 'master clock' in the brain coordinates all the body clocks so that they are in synch.

Northeast of the city of Chachapoyas, in Luya Province, in Peru, lies the archaeological site of Karajia, where the funeral tombs of the 'ancient wise men' are located. Perched high on a ledge by the side of a limestone cliff, the six sarcophagi resembling six limbless torsos with large heads and enormous jaw lines, stand proud with their chin up and facing the abyss.
The sarcophagi were built by the Chachapoya people to house the remains of important individuals in their culture, about 600 years ago. Originally, there were eight sarcophagi but two were destroyed by earthquakes and other natural elements.

Explaining Rare 'Hole Punch' Cloud With Rainbow in the Middle

Residents of Wonthaggi, near Melbourne, Australia, were taken off guard by the appearance of a hole punch cloud earlier this week.
Photo of a fallstreak hole cloud with a rainbow in it.
Residents of Wonthaggi, Australia (map) snapped pictures of a rare, rainbow-filled "hole punch" cloud on Monday. By the next day, the photos had gone viral with speculation about the unusual phenomenon overhead
Clouds are made of water droplets, and hole punch clouds—also known as fallstreak hole clouds—occur when part of that cloud falls out, leaving behind a hole. That opening in the cloud is the result of an extremely localized snowfall.
Usually, atmospheric water droplets latch on to particles in order to form ice crystals, or snow. This happens on a massive scale during snowstorms. The only way water droplets can spontaneously form ice crystals without those particles is if temperatures fall to roughly -40°F (-40°C).
In a hole punch cloud, temperatures fall in only a small portion of the cloud, forming a localized snowstorm. When that snow falls, it leaves behind a hole. Refraction of sunlight by the ice crystals results in the rainbow, while the arrangement of those crystals gives us a bright patch of light in the middle called a sun dog.
The expansion of air as an airplane passes can also produce hole punch clouds by cooling water droplets enough for them to form ice crystals.

Koala saved by kiss of life released back into the wild

A koala who was brought back to life after being hit by a car has finally been released back into the wild. In August, Sean the koala stopped breathing and wildlife carer Michelle Thomas stepped in to give him the kiss of life and her mouth-to-mouth resuscitation successfully revived him.
Michelle has been caring for Sean at her animal wildlife shelter ever since. "He's an absolute sweetheart," she said. "He's been a really good koala to look after. He's a happy little soul." At his final vet check up, the feisty koala was fighting to get back into the wild, but he had to have some X Rays and a cataract checked first.
After being given the all-clear, veterinary staff deemed Sean well enough to return to his natural habitat. Sean was taken back to the bush, well away from any roads or cars. He was placed at the base of a gum tree and gave Michelle a kiss before taking off. He then climbed up the trunk and into the tree tops for his first taste of freedom in several months.

"It was a really strong climb up the tree so we know he's in tip top condition," said Michelle. A particular spot on the Mornington Peninsula was chosen for Sean's release because there is a young female in the area who will make a perfect match. It should not take long for him to find her, as he has already got the mating call down pat.

Ass stuck in manhole rescued by firefighters

Firefighters in the canton of Basel Country, Switzerland, faced an unusual rescue mission at the weekend - rescuing a donkey stuck in a manhole.
The 13-year-old ass, named Nilo, fell into the uncovered manhole in a playground in the town of Pratteln and became stuck. The incident occurred on Saturday when passer-by Bruno Schneider noticed the agitated animal with his head and two front feet sticking out of the ground.
Schnedier contacted the police who in turn alerted the fire department. It took a team of firefighters to lift the donkey delicately to safety. His hind legs were stuck in the piping below. Police said the donkey suffered a few “flesh wounds” that were quickly attended to but the animal was largely unharmed.
Spokesman Meinrad Stoeklin said Nilo responded in an exemplary way to the rescue. “He was very cool,” Stoeklin added. The cantonal force said the circumstances that led to the donkey falling into the manhole, and why the cover was removed, are the subject of an ongoing investigation. Nilo, meantime, has returned to his home in a petting zoo for children apparently none the worse for wear.

Invasive Bug Prompts Quarantine In Pennsylvania Townships

An adult spotted lanternfly is seen, its wings spread to show a colorful hind wing. The invasive pest has sparked a quarantine in Pennsylvania.
An adult spotted lanternfly is seen, its wings spread to show a colorful hind wing. The invasive pest has sparked a quarantine in Pennsylvania.The spotted lanternfly has officially arrived in the U.S., and leaders in Pennsylvania are hoping it won't be staying long. The invasive pest poses a threat to fruit orchards and grape vines, along with forests and the timber industry. It was detected in Berks County, northwest of Philadelphia.
"Berks County is the front line in the war against Spotted Lanternfly," Agriculture Secretary George Greig said in a news release. "We are taking every measure possible to learn more, educate the public and ourselves and eliminate this threat to agriculture."
The spotted lanternfly, or Lycorma delicatula, is native to parts of China and eastern Asia. It attacks trees by feeding on sap and harms them further by excreting large amounts of a fluid that coats leaves and stems and encourages the growth of mold, according to researchers.
Pennsylvania announced both the insect's discovery and a quarantine to contain it in a bulletin Saturday, saying that in the U.S., the spotted lanternfly "has the potential to greatly impact the grape, fruit tree and logging industries." The agriculture agency added that along with pines and stone fruit trees (such as peaches), the pest attacks "more than 70 additional species."
When officials declared a quarantine for the Pike and District townships in Berks County, they also urged citizens to help look for both mature insects and egg clusters. Adult spotted lanternflies begin to lay their eggs around September; nymphs emerge in the spring.
The state explains what its action entails:
"The general quarantine of the two townships restricts movement of any material or object that can spread the pest. This includes firewood or wood products, brush or yard waste, remodeling or construction materials and waste, packing material like boxes, grapevines for decorative purposes or as nursery stock, and any outdoor household articles like lawnmowers, grills, tarps and any other equipment, trucks or vehicles not stored indoors.
"Businesses in the general quarantine area need to obtain a Certificate of Limited Permit from the department in order to move articles. Criminal and civil penalties of up to $20,000 and prison time can be imposed for violations by businesses or individuals."
Greig said, "We know we're asking a lot, but we know Pennsylvanians will assist us and help save our fruit trees, grapes and forests."
A research paper about the bug's spread in Korea explains why it can be tough to control:
"Furthermore, no natural enemy of L. delicatula seems to exist in Korea. Thus, farmers use pesticides to control them in vineyards (Park et al. 2009). However, the use of pesticides kills natural enemies of other grape pests and L. delicatula can repopulate pesticide-sprayed areas from nearby forested areas, which contain suitable host species."
The study's authors recommended using sticky traps at the base of trees that can host the insects.
Here are some of the plants the bug particularly likes, according to the researchers: Ailanthus altissima (tree of heaven), Evodia danielii (Korean evodia), Parthenocissus quinquefolia (Virginia creeper), Juglans mandshurica (Manchurian walnut) and Vitis vinifera (the common grapevine).
