Built high so that fishing boats can pass underneath, the structure fortunately isn't quite as steep as...

  • Oregon teacher arrested for allegedly burning pupils with Tesla coil

    By Courtney Sherwood PORTLAND, Ore. (Reuters) - An Oregon science teacher accused of using lab equipment to burn messages into the arms of at least eight teenage students was arrested and booked on two counts of criminal mistreatment, police said on Wednesday. Samuel Dufner, 37, is alleged by students to have used a Tesla coil, a device that produces sparks and is often used to illustrate electrical principles, to burn "I heart Mom" into the arms of 15-year-olds in one of his classes, said Salem Police Lieutenant Steve Burr. A parent reported the incident to South Salem High School, located in the state capital, Salem, about 50 miles south of Portland, and school officials alerted police late on Monday. "I had to look up Tesla coil on Wikipedia this morning." The device was being used in several classes last week to ignite gases that would propel a rocket for a science demonstration, and police said it was not clear if students in other classes may also have been burned by Dufner.

  • 10 most valuable soccer teams of 2015 (10 photos)

    May 6 (Reuters) - European champions Real Madrid are the world's most valuable soccer club for a third straight year, according to a Forbes poll released on Wednesday that showed the average value of the top 20 teams rose 11 percent over last year. The Spanish club's value fell five percent to $3.26 billion but their $746 million in revenue, the highest of any sports team in the world, was enough to keep them top of the list, Forbes said in a statement. Barcelona ($3.16 billion), Manchester United ($3.10 billion), German champions Bayern Munich ($2.35 billion) and Manchester City ($1.35 billion) rounded out the top five. Rising television and shirt sponsorship revenue helped drive the average value of the top 20 clubs to $1.16 billion, a staggering 84 percent jump from five years ago. Eight of the top 20 teams are from the English Premier League, which Forbes credited to both a rise in the British pound relative to the euro and U.S. dollar and a lucrative new domestic TV deal starting from the 2016-17 season. Serie A champions Juventus ($837 million), AC Milan ($775 million), Inter Milan ($439 million) and Napoli ($353 million) are the only Italian teams to crack the top 20 but none were higher than ninth place. Forbes said the once-great Serie A brand has been undermined over the past decade by match-fixing scandals, antiquated stadiums, rising debts and a decline in talent on the pitch.

  • 'DWTS' Couple Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson Really Are 'Madly In Love'

    Though Shark Tank star Robert Herjavec and his partner Kym Johnson were eliminated on Tuesday night's Dancing With the Stars, turns out they've found something better than the coveted Mirror Ball trophy -- love! The reported couple have remained tight-lipped about their romance all season long. But on their last episode, viewers saw adorable footage from their rehearsals, when the 51-year-old multimillionaire tech mogul was caught whispering, "I love you," to the 38-year-old dancing pro. ABC PHOTOS: Complete List of 'Dancing With the Stars' Winners A source tells ET that the two have been dating since the beginning of the show, and that they "are inseparable and madly in love." ABC But despite their exciting new romance, Herjavec evaded the question when DWTS host Tom Bergeron pressed him on Tuesday night's episode. "I've known Kym, we've been friends for years, and Robert, you may not have won the Mirror Ball trophy but I'm suspecting you've won someone's heart," Bergeron said. "Tom, I'm not sure I feel that way about you," the businessman joked back. The new relationship is coming at a good time in Herjavec's life -- in March, he confirmed that he split from his wife of 24 years, Diane Plese, and admitted he felt suicidal after their breakup. "I just wanted to end it," he told People about a scary incident last July when he contemplated jumping off the balcony of his Toronto hotel room. "It's been a terribly difficult year." In March, ET Canada caught up with the newly eliminated couple, when Herjavec acknowledged his trying year and the great timing of his DWTS gig alongside Johnson. "This couldn't come at a better time in my life for me, right?" he said. "You know, I'm just trying to stay positive and Kym's yelling at me a lot, so that's a little negative, but I'm getting used to it," he joked. NEWS: Which Two Couples Went Home on 'DWTS' Last Night?

  • There's an Unexpected Downside to More Kids Getting Free Meals at School

    The blurred lines between economic classes in the cafeteria have made it harder to determine the number of students who receive free or reduced-priced meals—the primary statistic used to determine the level of poverty in a school or a district. Jill Barshay, a columnist for education analysis website The Hechinger Report, wrote that “more than 2,000 school districts and more than 13,000 schools are serving more than 6.4 million students participating in the free-lunch-for-all program,” roughly 13 percent of the entire U.S. public school population. The lack of an accurate gauge of a school’s poverty rate, she added, could skew federal Title I funding, typically used to provide classroom services and support for poor or struggling students.

  • California Governor Brown tells critics of water project: 'Shut up'

    By Sharon Bernstein SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Reuters) - California Governor Jerry Brown on Wednesday delivered a spirited defense of his controversial proposals to shore up California's water system, which is straining under years of drought and population growth. Brown's impassioned argument in favor of mandatory conservation, desalination and water recycling plants, and a massive project to funnel water from the Sacramento River came a day after regulators imposed steep cutbacks in water use as part of the state's first-ever mandatory conservation plan. "I have to deal with these problems I've been given," Brown told a meeting of the Association of California Water Agencies. I wish we didn't have any problems." California is entering the fourth year of a devastating drought that has killed 12.5 million trees, caused farmers to fallow a half-million acres of land and left mountains bereft of snow that melts to replenish streams and reservoirs.

  • India moves to settle 1974 border dispute with Bangladesh

    India took a step towards ratifying a 41-year-old border dispute with Bangladesh Wednesday that would see thousands of people living in "enclaves" being allowed to choose their nationality. They have survived both the partition of the sub-continent after British rule ended in 1947 and Bangladesh's 1971 war of independence from Pakistan. On Wednesday, the upper house of India's parliament passed a bill to exchange the enclaves, in a step towards ratifying a land boundary agreement signed between India and Bangladesh in 1974. The earlier we implement, sooner we reap the benefits," she was quoted as saying by the Press Trust of India news agency.
