Hair Stylists Battling Over Lottery Winnings Kevin Bacon Claims Portion Of Jackpot

February 28, 2013

Seven hair stylists who work together at an Indianapolis salon spent Wednesday not cutting hair but in a nearby courtroom battling over a $9.5 million jackpot. The controversy began Feb. 16 when the women from Lou’s Creative Styles pooled their money to buy several lottery tickets.  The woman who purchased the tickets, hairstylist Christina Shaw, has maintained that the winning ticket in the Feb. 16 Hoosier Lotto drawing was one she bought for herself, not one of the tickets she purchased for the group. “She came into the shop on Monday after the Saturday night drawing and she said, ‘We didn’t win but I did,'” said the group’s attorney, Scott Montross.

Attorney for Kevin Bacon said he is also connected with some of the winnings.

Mexican Police Discover Marijuana Cannon That Fires Pot Across Border Into California

February 28, 2013

Mexican police have confiscated an improvised cannon that they say was used to fire packages of marijuana across a border fence into California.

The makeshift cannon was made of plastic pipe and powered by compressed air sourced from an old car engine, police in the border city of Mexicali said. The device was able to fire cylinders packed with up to 30-pounds of pot.

The cannon was discovered Tuesday after U.S. officers told Mexican police that they had been confiscating a large number of drug packages that appeared to have been fired over the border, the Associated Press said.

Dog Shoots Man In Leg While Looking For The Man That Shot My Paw

February 28, 2013

A dog may be man’s best friend, but we’re guessing that Gregory Dale Lanier might take issue with that sentiment after his pooch shot him with a loaded gun.

According to Highlands Today, Lanier was driving around Sebring, Fla., with his dog riding shotgun (pun not intended). The dog—unnamed, but we’ll call him Clint—accidentally kicked the weapon, which Lanier had thought was unloaded. It wasn’t.

The gun went off, and Lanier saw smoke coming from it as well as a newly acquired hole in his leg. The report from Highlands Today explains that Sebring police “did not arrest the dog.” An investigation is ongoing.

Watergate Reporter Bob Woodward Reports On Madness He Hasn’t Seen In A Long Time He’s All Shook Up

February 28, 2013

The $85 billion across-the-board budget cuts were mandated by Congress and the White House as part of the August 2011 deal to avoid a government default. The reductions are split between defense spending and domestic programs.

Woodward, who first gained fame in the 1970s from exposing the Watergate scandal during the administration of President Richard Nixon, wrote a detailed account in his 2012 book, “The Price of Politics,” of the August 2011 deal that led to the cuts.

On Wednesday he attacked Obama for drawing national security into the budget debate.

“So we now have the president going out (saying) ‘Because of this piece of paper and this agreement, I can’t do what I need to do to protect the country.’ That’s a kind of madness that I haven’t seen in a long time,” Woodward told MSNBC on Wednesday.

Creepy Gynecologist Video Tapes Patients With Pen On A String, Brilliant

February 27, 2013

BALTIMORE—A Johns Hopkins Hospital gynecologist accused of secretly videotaping patients wore a pen around his neck that may have been used to conceal a camera, according to the employee who reported the doctor. The employee told hospital officials of her suspicions Feb. 4, according to a letter from the hospital’s CEO, Dr. Paul B. Rothman. The letter was dated Tuesday and sent to the law firm of Silverman Thompson Slutkin & White, which is working with the Maryland Crime Victims’ Resource Center. The law firm gave a copy of the letter to The Associated Press on Wednesday. Rothman’s letter said the Hopkins employee had noticed what she believed to be a device, like a writing pen, that Levy had worn around his neck while examining patients. She said she believed the device was a camera.

White House Considering Sending Cash To Replace Global Food Shipments New Cash To Dictators Programs

February 27, 2013

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House may soon propose the biggest change in U.S. food aid since the programs were created during the Cold War – donating cash for hunger relief instead of shipping American-grown food thousands of miles to global trouble spots, say farm groups and charities. Reformers have argued for years that cash donations, the method used by most nations, are more efficient and speedier. But food donation has been the favored U.S. approach since the Food for Peace program was enacted in 1954.

If 72 Is The New 30 Then 50 Is The New 10

February 26, 2013

Life expectancy has exceeded 80 in several countries as many have made huge strides in reducing mortality rates. Life spans have increased so much over the past 100 or so years that, evolutionarily speaking, 72 is the new 30, says a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.The study, titled “Human Mortality Improvement in Evolutionary Context,” notes that primitive hunter-gatherers at age 30 have the same probability of death as present-day Japanese person at age 72. “In other words, “compared with the evolutionary pattern, 72 is the new 30,” the researchers write.

If 72 is the new 30 than 50 is the new 10.

Ask The Eye Night Terrors Come With The Package

February 26, 2013

Dear Eye View

My husband has a pretty good life. He was raised by nice parents, enjoys good physical health, has a job he likes, we have a happy marriage, he has friends and, as far as I know, has never been the victim of any kind of serious crime or trauma. Nevertheless, he wakes up, at a minimum of one night a week, screaming, thrashing, and terrified. It’s as if he has PTSD. With our first child expected in a few months, these night terrors have become an almost every-night occurrence, and it’s fraying my nerves and causing me to lose sleep. I’m worried about him, although during the day he’s one of the happiest people I’ve ever met. It would seem odd to tell a therapist, “I’m happy and have no real problems, but I have night terrors.”

Concerned

Dear Concerned

I understand your concern. But nothing to worry about.  You husband is in the early stages of developing parental coping skills. These night terrors are a good thing. Usually men are more advanced than women. Womens parental coping skills are a little slower to develop. No concerns. He is probably a little ahead of schedule. Hope this helps.

Ask The Eye My Husband Can Not Get Over The Death Of His Mistress Send In The Clowns

February 26, 2013

Dear Eye View

Three months ago, the woman who was having an affair with my husband died suddenly from an accident. I found out about the affair shortly before her funeral. I thought she was simply a co-worker and I was wondering why my husband was so disturbed and emotional. He quit his job, saying it was too traumatic to go to work. She was in the early weeks of pregnancy when she died and my husband doesn’t know whether he or her husband was the father. So, on top of everything, he’s also grieving for a baby which may or may not have been his. I find it extremely difficult to be emotionally supportive when he wakes up at 3 a.m. crying and trembling—yet I don’t have the heart to yell at him like I want to. He says she’s dead, so there’s no reason for me to feel jealous or threatened, and asks for my understanding as he grieves. We’ve barely talked these last weeks because I don’t know how to respond to my husband when he cries and says he misses her and wishes she were here, then also how much he loves me and that he never intended to leave me. I asked him to visit a marriage therapist together and he said he’s “not ready” to work on our marriage, and thinks he needs to see a grief therapist instead. Do I need to give him time to mourn the loss of his mistress? Or should I demand he focus on our marriage?

Confused

Dear Confused

I understand your concern. Your husband has lost his mistress, possible child, his job, your respect, and possibly his life when the grieving widower finds out. I think grief therapy is in order. Maybe you should help plan the funeral to overcome his grief.. Have you considered clown therapy? Hope this helps.

Oscars Snub Andy Griffith One Good Cracker

February 24, 2013

Bookended by the ever-classy George Clooney and the ever-brassy Barbra Stresiand, the Oscar In Memoriam segment paid tribute to some of the Hollywood greats who died in the past year, including Ernest Borgnine, Michael Clarke Duncan, Jack Klugman, Ray Bradbury, and Charles Durning.

However, as is usually the case, there were some notable people who were omitted from the montage.

Arguably the most notable omission this year was Andy Griffith, who rose to prominence as the star of Elia Kazan’s “A Face in the Crowd” and went on to headline the situational comedy “The Andy Griffith Show” (1960-1968) and the popular legal drama “Matlock” (1986-1985).

Hollywood snubs Southern sheriff. Thats one good cracker.
