Let's see...

Our Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority recommend you to limit your kids cell phone usage and instruct them to use text messages and handsfree instead of keeping a cell phone close to their head during phone calls. That's because cell phones are pretty new invention and you can't know what kind of long-term health effects their radiation and them have, especially when your kids will be use them more during their life than you who were older when you started to use them. Besides that human brain develops up to 20ish which put your kids to a special group as a cell phone user. However, currently researches have still pointed out that it should be harmful to use a cell phone.

Nah, there's nothing interesting today. Sorry had to give a summary about that piece of news because I don't know any website which would publish our news in English.

CFB TRENTON, ONT. – The body of the first Canadian soldier killed this year on the Afghanistan mission is scheduled to arrive home Saturday.
Trooper Brian Good was killed by a roadside bomb Wednesday, making him the 107th Canadian soldier to die since the mission began in the war-torn country.

Three soldiers wounded in the blast are said to be in good condition.
Lt. Annie Morin of CFB Trenton says a flight carrying Good's body is scheduled to arrive at the eastern Ontario airbase at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Lol, NOTHING happens here...

Except Larry Flint (Editor of Hussler) and the Girls Gone Wild people want a gov't bail out.

My government teacher looked up a news video about it, but that got WAY too interesting. Showing a video about the porn industry to a bunch of 11th grade boys. BAD idea.

That's my news... sorry it's not great. And I hope we all can be mature about it (unlike the guys in my class)

Arrest Is Made Over Dead Pets

POSTED: January 9, 2009

Email: "Arrest Is Made Over Dead Pets" *To:

WHEELING - When a man hired to haul items from the Wheeling home of Brenda Lee Magdich first entered her basement in August, he got a surprise.
According to Marshall County sheriff's Deputy Steven White, the man came across an emaciated dog, with no food or water, living in its own excrement among piles of garbage. But that was just the beginning and now, Magdich, 39, is facing four felony counts of animal cruelty.
Magdich was arrested by deputies late Wednesday. She was taken to the Northern Regional Jail and later released on $6,500 bond.
Searches of the home by the department led to the discovery of another dog in a similar condition, as well as a dead bird and guinea pig, both still in their cages, White said. The pets were found in Magdich's 9 Carl St. Home within two days of each other, launching a months-long investigation.
Shortly after their discovery, both dogs had to be euthanized due to the condition they were left in, White said. He noted the man immediately alerted the department upon discovering the first dog.
"Prior to mine and Marshall County Animal Control Officer Mike Baker's arrival, the (first) dog had started having seizures," White said, adding that the dog was still suffering from seizures upon their arrival. "There was no water or food for the dog. There were piles of garbage and animal feces all over the floor."
He added that dog also had extremely long toe nails, several areas of missing or thinning hair and an "extremely foul" odor.
According to Baker, an autopsy revealed that the only trace of food in the second dog was what was eaten prior to it being euthanized.
"It would have taken several days for the dog's digestive system to be completely empty," White said.
White said Baker was also told by the veterinarian who did the autopsy that it would have taken several weeks for the dog's physical condition to become as bad as it was.
If convicted, Magdich could be sentenced to one to five years in prison and fined between $1,000 and $5,000 for each charge, according to West Virginia Code.

Wow that's so sad, RC . It's always pity to hear if somebody has abused animals. At least you've proper punishments. If the case that you bring out had happened over here, court maybe would take her animals away, forbid her to take other for next few years and amerge her but nothing else.

Today's news from where I am.

Nebraska has pending legislation on a bill to allow lethal injection. Our old electric chair was deemed unconstitutional, so we haven't had anything we can do with our death row inmates.

First Semester is finally over at my school since we had one day of finals snowed out and gained another week of last semester. The most boring week ever!

For the weather: It's cold and windy here. We're expecting it to be winter again soon instead of the nice weather we have been having.

Three men died in a shooting yesterday. The scene of this sad incident was a city called Jyväskylä in the Middle Finland. There were also a woman with two kids attending the shooting but they managed to escape and save their lifes. It's very possible that the shooter is one of those who died.

Now Jaana Haapasalo, the adjunct professor of forensic- and criminal psychology demands that it should be forbidden to keep firearms at home. According to her, it that you've firearms at your home raises the risk of abuse them because it demands less effort to do something fatal when tools are within arm's reach.

There have been a lot of homicides which have been made with firearms in Finland recently.

State must borrow from feds to pay the jobless

By William Hershey
Staff Writer

Monday, January 12, 2009

COLUMBUS — Ohio's unemployment compensation fund went broke on Monday, Jan. 12, requiring the state to borrow $50 million from the federal government to continue paying benefits to unemployed workers.

The federal government has approved lending the state $500 million to cover benefits for January and February. The last time Ohio had to do such borrowing was in the 1980s.

The state had thought it might need $50 million for December but got by without that loan.

For the week ending Jan. 3, the last week for which data was available, 245,782 Ohioans were receiving regular benefits, a jump of nearly 60 percent from a year ago.

The money in the unemployment compensation trust fund comes from taxes paid by employers.

The fund had been expected to go broke, as a result of the strain caused by high unemployment and also the inability of the Unemployment Compensation Advisory Council and the legislature to come up with a new formula to bolster the fund.

The state took out loans from 1980-1988. They included interest free loans of $992.7 million from 1980-1982 and $2.8 billion in interest-bearing loans from 1982-1988, according to state records. The state ended up paying $263,735,578 in interest.

Gov. Ted Strickland and other governors have requested help from President-elect Barack Obama to boost the trust funds in their states.
