Man named Mr Gambles has won lottery for the second time using the same numbers

Chicago man Larry Gambles has won the lottery for the second time, using the same numbers. Mr Gambles, of Matteson, won a $1,050,000 Lucky Day Lotto jackpot prize when his ticket matched all five numbers, 01-06-12-14-25, in the June 7 draw.
"Nine years ago, I won $50,000 playing the numbers from the jerseys of my high school basketball team," Mr Gambles said. "I’ve been playing the same numbers ever since. I can’t believe they paid off again."
Mr Gambles, 65, a retired school administrator, plans to share the winnings with his family and friends. Mr Gambles' advice to other lottery players is to pick your favourite numbers and stick with them. "It worked for me," he added.

Cracking the Mystery of the ‘Worldwide Hum’

Caribbean Sea Whistles Loudly, Mysterious Sound Can Be Heard From Space

The Caribbean Sea apparently whistles, as per a new study. 
A strange noise emanating from the Caribbean Sea has reportedly been detected by researchers from UK's University of Liverpool. The sound, which was found to be similar to a whistle, was so remarkable that it could be picked up from space, even though it was too low to be initially caught by human ears on our planet's surface.
The scientists heard the sound when conducting a research about regional sea level and pressure changes, especially in the Caribbean Sea owing to its significant role in creating currents that feed into the Gulf Stream. The team soon realized there was something mysterious going on when they noticed pressure oscillations in their study model which did not seem quite right.
The scientists zeroed in on the oscillations and realized that they emanated a low noise, which could only be described as a whistle. The whistle's pitch was so strong that it could be measured in space by observing the oscillations on Earth's gravity field. The further study of the effect led the scientists to understand that the sound was actually a Rossby Wave, a phenomenon that moves west on the ocean, and reaches the Caribbean basin, where it disappears for 120 days and then reappears again to make the journey back to the east of the ocean. The researchers attributed the mysterious whistle of the sea floor to the Rossby Wave.
"An ocean current flowing through the Caribbean Sea becomes unstable and excites a resonance of a rather strange kind of ocean wave called a Rossby wave," said Chris Hughes, from the researching team. "Because the Caribbean Sea is partly open, this causes an exchange of water with the rest of the ocean which allows us to 'hear' the resonance using gravity measurements".
Incidentally the note of the wave is in A-flat tone, which is around 30 octaves lower than a piano's lowest note. Furthermore, the researchers believe that the "Rossby Whistle" is actually impacting the flow of the Caribbean current and subsequently the whole North Atlantic Ocean. The team now wants to study more about the effect of the Rossby Whistle, particularly its capability of coastal flooding prediction.

Man arrested again for hiding under vehicles and touching women's feet

A man who police in Lincoln, Nebraska, have again accused of hiding under a parked vehicle and touching a woman's foot to satisfy his fascination says he is sorry to the women involved in these encounters. Jesse M. Johnson, 20, was arrested and ticketed on suspicion of disturbing the peace in connection with an incident at an Aldi parking lot. “I just have this weird addiction and odd behavior,” Johnson said on Wednesday night. “I don’t know why.”
A 48-year-old woman told police she was leaving the store at around 5:30pm on Tuesday when she noticed a running car parked next to hers, which stuck her as odd, Capt. Jeri Roeder said. As she got to her vehicle, the woman felt a hand reach out from under the vehicle and grab her ankle, Roeder said. She screamed and a man rolled out from under the vehicle and ran off, Roeder said. Police found the suspect, identified as Johnson, at the Kohl's store nearby and took him jail. Johnson disputed the police's account and said he didn’t touch the woman’s foot or make any physical contact with her.
“I was hiding under the vehicle simply for the visual,” Johnson said. This is the third such incident he's been accused of being involved in this year, according to police. Johnson said doesn’t mean to scare the woman involved in these cases and he has never tried to hurt them, he said. But police worry that a similar incident could escalate. "Some of these people never move beyond what they’re doing, similar to window peekers," Roeder said. "And some, you know, graduate on to bigger and worse things. "It’s always concerning whether he’s going to do something more serious.”
He was ticketed by police on June 16 after a woman reported a hand reaching out from under her car and trying to grab her leg in an apartment complex parking lot. Johnson had been out of jail only two days after being jailed for seven days connected to another incident on March 21 at a Lincoln Wal-Mart. That case remains pending. City prosecutors are seeking jail time this time after a judge fined Johnson $150 for a similar incident from June 2015 at TJ Maxx. Johnson said he has sought help in the past and was seeing a counselor in 2014 before financial issues made continued treatment unaffordable. He hopes to find affordable counseling before he gets into further trouble. Asked if he thinks it will happen again, Johnson said: “If I get the help that I need, no.”

British Police Arrest Artist For Getting Strangers To Stroke Her Breasts

by Jake Kilroy 
Milo Moiré is a fascinating artist. She’s made a name for herself far beyond beloved Switzerland by making her bare body a key component in her work. She’s strutted nude through city streets with the names of clothing items scrawled across the appropriate body part and, in response to Cologne’s New Year’s Eve sexual assaults, protested bare with a sign that read, “Respect Us! We are not fair game even when naked!!!”
Her latest project is called Mirror Box. In it, Moiré struts around European cities adorned in a mirrored performance box outfit of sorts. The curious attraction though is that surrounding pedestrians can stick their hands—after a thorough sanitization—into the box and feel her breasts or vagina for 30 seconds. Her press release explained the idea.
Moiré has taken the liberty of showing female desire, thus giving women a sexual voic. The audience’s reflection on the mirrored box simultaneously becomes a visual metaphor for the role reversal from voyeur to the object of view: a constant play of inversions analogous to our roles in the digital world.
The performance didn’t exactly go over well in London, however. Not long after the Moiré began in Trafalgar Square, the Swiss artist was arrested. She wound up with a “4-digit fine” and 24 hours in a prison cell. Once released, Moiré pointed out the arrest as an indicator of why Britain should stay in the European Union, as the vote took place just yesterday. Hyping “regulated uniformly” and cultural unity in Europe, the artist pointed out how the Dutch police only complained that the megaphone was too loud.

Police introduce its new 'porn sniffing dog'

Law enforcement officers use K-9s and their keen sense of smell to help them find drugs, locate missing people and help solve arson investigations. Now Utah police have a K-9 to find child pornography. On Tuesday, the Weber County Sheriff's Office introduced URL, pronounced Earl, as the latest addition to their fight against child pornography.
"He'll definitely find it. He has an incredible nose," URL's handler, detective Cameron Hartman, a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, said. URL is the state's first electronic detection K-9. With a few simple commands like "seek" and "show me," URL is able to find small electronic devices, SD cards, SIM cards, USB sticks, thumb drives and other items.
He can also detect large devices such as cellphones, iPads and tablets. URL is trained to smell common chemicals found in devices that store electronic media, such as pictures and videos. Although he cannot specifically tell which devices contain child pornography, his main use will be to find small electronic devices that child pornographers may try to hide, thus earning URL the nickname the "porn dog." URL has already been used to assist investigators serving search warrants in two task force cases, and he was able to find hidden devices at another house, Hartman said.

Although his main duties for now will be in child pornography cases, Hartman said URL can be used to find any type of evidence stored on electronic memory devices and could be used in the future to find contraband, such as smuggled cellphones, in the Weber County Jail. The playful 17-month-old black Labrador was actually twice given up by families to shelters before ending up with a law enforcement career, he said. "A few families kind of gave up on him and probably didn't realize the gift that he has, because he has an incredible nose," Hartman said. URL went through six months of training as a puppy in Indiana before he was taken to Utah.
