Man to sell his collection of 10 million beer bottle caps to raise money for family in need

An Austrian man is to sell his collection of 10 million beer bottles caps to raise money for a family in need. Hans Heiland collected the bottles caps over five years and will now sell them to raise money for a family who had recently lost a family member. “The family suffered a loss in January, the husband died of a heart attack at only 32 and there are three very small children here. The family has also recently bought a house and therefore has significant debt so I thought I would donate the project,” said Heiland.
Heiland first had the idea of collecting beer bottle tops when he went to a festival. “I noticed that so much was being thrown away and decided I was going to start collecting for a good cause,” said Heiland. He started with only a few hundred bottles caps but now has 10 million. He started receiving them from all over Austria and Germany, once word of his plans started circulating.
As the collection now weighs several tons, he stopped collecting more bottle caps in mid May. He will now sell them to a scrap dealer for €1,500. First they will be displayed at a benefit performance during a summer night festival organized by the volunteer fire department in Oberholz, a town in the district of Amstetten. The money raised from the bottle caps will then be donated to the family in need.

Would-be bicycle thief lassoed by cowboy

A man allegedly attempting to steal a bicycle from a Southern Oregon car park was foiled by a cowboy on a horse on Friday morning when the mounted rider lassoed the would-be thief and kept him roped up until police arrived. The incident unfolded at around 10:30am in front of the Walmart in Eagle Point, about 12 miles northeast of Medford, said Officer Chris Adams.
A man tried to grab a mountain bike off the rack in front of the store, Adams said, in plain view of the bicycle's owner. The woman who owned the bike gave chase, as did several other bystanders including a man on horseback who snared him with a lasso and kept him at bay until police arrived.
Robert Borba is used to roping cattle, not criminals, but his usual routine took an unlikely turn when he went to pick up some dog food at the store. “I hear a lady yelling, ‘Stop him he stole my bike!'” Robert Borba said. The champion bull rider could tell the man was getting away, so he got back-up. “Grabbed Old Grey and went for him,” he said.

“I just roped him and the rope went down around his feet and I just rode off like I would if I’d roped a cow or something by myself,” Borba explains. Borba held the man until police arrived, and then headed back to the farm to tend to his horses. “Poor gals bike that could have been her only transportation,” Borba added. “Stealing ain’t right so I figured get him stopped you know?” Officers arrested the suspect, Victorino Sanchez, on a theft charge. He’s being held at the Jackson County Jail.

Teenager arrested for stealing the same truck twice

Authorities in Florida have arrested a teenager they say stole the same truck twice. Ryan Maxey, 17, was taken into custody on Thursday and charged with grand theft auto and dealing in stolen property.
Maxey is the primary suspect in an unusual truck theft in which the same Ford F-350 was stolen from the same gated area in Lee County and ditched in the same place two days in a row.
The truck was returned to its owner after the initial theft on Sunday. He didn't know it had been stolen. On Monday he called Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers to let them know that lightning had struck twice. It was tracked down after two hours to the exact same spot where it was recovered from the day before.

"The fact that they hit the same exact victim and same exact truck in the same exact dump location twice is a little odd," said Crime Stoppers coordinator Trish Routte. Maxey and a woman were seen on surveillance images. Authorities are still searching for the woman.

Man used umbrella to disguise himself during bank robbery

Police in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, are looking for a man who used an umbrella to disguise himself during a bank robbery in Squirrel Hill on Wednesday.
According to police, it happened at the First Commonwealth Bank just before 11:45am. The suspect was wearing several layers of dark clothing, as well as sunglasses with a mask over the top.
He was also carrying a navy umbrella. Investigators say the umbrella was open when the suspect walked into the bank. He handed the tellers a plastic bag and demanded money.
Police say no weapon was ever seen, but the suspect acted as though he had one in his pocket. The suspect was last seen running away. There’s no word on how much money he got away with. Authorities describe the suspect as a white, middle-aged man.

2,000-year-old lump of bog butter unearthed by turf cutters

A prehistoric 10kg lump of bog butter thought to have been a gift to the gods has been found by turf cutters in Ireland. The creamy white dairy product, which smells like a strong cheese and is believed to be about 2,000 years old, was unearthed by Jack Conway, from Maghera, Co Cavan, while he worked on Emlagh bog in Co Meath last week.
The find, while not unusual, has been given to the National Museum, where it will be preserved. Andy Halpin, assistant keeper in the museum’s Irish Antiquities Division, said the discovery was significant because it was found in the Drakerath area where 11 townlands and the boundaries of three ancient baronies met. “These bogs in those times were inaccessible, mysterious places,” he said.
“It is at the juncture of three separate kingdoms, and politically it was like a no-man’s-land - that is where it all hangs together.” Bog butter was often buried to preserve it to be dug up at a later date. Other research has shed light on it being buried as an offering to the gods or spirits in the hope of renewed prosperity. Mr Halpin said the Emlagh discovery, 12ft below the surface, may never have been intended to be unearthed as there was no evidence of a cover on it.
Such finds are common in Ireland and Scotland and the product, which appears as a waxy substance, was often placed inside a wooden casket or animal hide before being buried. Turf cutter Mr Conway reported the find to Cavan County Museum before it was handed over to the National Museum, where it will be carbon dated. Top chef Kevin Thornton has revealed he tasted bog butter, but archaeological experts are reluctant, describing the material as crumbly and with a distinctive smell like strong cheese. “Theoretically the stuff is still edible - but we wouldn’t say it’s advisable,” Mr Halpin said.

How Chewing Gave Humans Flat Faces, Little Teeth And Wimpy Jaws

Chewing foods that have been just simply pounded and sliced with rudimentary tools could have led to the evolution of our current jaws. It turns out that chewing has had a huge impact on the way we look.
In order to understand the structure of the skull, scientists must study how food is chewed and processed as well as the types of food eaten over evolutionary time. And compared to our ancestors, we are pretty lame chewers.

Mexico's Butterfly Forest

A Unique Natural Wonder Under Threat
Every year, hundreds of millions of Monarch butterflies move from Canada and the United States to the forests of Michoacan, Mexico in what is known as the world's largest insect migration.
Countless butterflies cluster together both on the trees and on the ground, covering large areas into carpets of orange and black. It's a breathtaking sight to behold, but as always, human greed is threatening to destroy it.
