• When Sugar Mountain’s ski lift closed, stranded youth had to choose: Jump or freeze

    The family of a snowboarder who suffered broken bones and frostbite after falling 30 feet off a ski lift to avoid freezing to death has sued the popular N.C. mountains ski resort where the youth’s nightmare unfolded. The Tennessee family contends workers at Sugar Mountain Resort in Avery County “were dismissive” when the youth’s mother reported him missing. Instead of immediately launching a rescue effort, staff speculated the youth “probably wandered off the ski slope or trails,” according to the lawsuit. Resort staff were negligent in failing to check the lift for any riders before shutting it down the afternoon of Feb. 14, 2016, the lawsuit claims. The youth and his parents, Robert and Wendy

  • An American man who claims to be the rightful King of England is demanding his throne

    LONDON — A man from the US has taken out a giant ad in The Times claiming to be the rightful King of England. Allan V. Evans from Colorado, US, says that he is a descendant of a royal Welsh line from the 3rd century. The ad, shown below in a tweet, says that Evans is "a direct descendant of an unbroken primogeniture line legally documented since the 3rd century in Great Britain and registered in the Royal College of Arms." It goes on to describe generations of lineage, starting with a claim that Evans is the descendant of Cunedda Wledig, the founder of the Kingdom of Wales. Evans is giving "legal notice" to all of his relatives, according to the ad, and in 30 days plans to claim his "royal historic

  • The 'forgotten Kennedy' — Rosemary Kennedy — lived a real-life horror story

    The greatest tragedy of the Kennedy family was not the deaths of John or Robert — it was the horrific fate of their sister Rosemary. Take a minute to mentally prepare yourself for what you're about to read, because it's disturbing as hell. Ready? The odds were stacked against Rosemary literally from birth. According to Kate Clifford Larson's book Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter, when her mother, Rose, went into labor on Sept. 13, 1918, the nurse on duty tried to stall her progress by forcing her knees closed because the doctor was with other patients and the nurse didn't want to deliver the baby herself, even though she was trained to do so. The baby was forced to remain in the birth canal

  • Chinese Wages Are Showing Paul Krugman Is Right Once Again

    We may not all be entirely fans of Paul Krugman’s work as an opinion columnist but we should still acknowledge that he’s a very good economist. He didn’t get that Nobel out of his Wheaties box you know. And we’ve new evidence supporting something he’s been saying for years. Not that he’s unique in saying it, this is the entirely standard view of economists. Other countries developing their economies does not make us poorer. Nor is it true that as those other economies develop their wages will stay low. No, instead, what will happen is that as development happens then wages will rise. And when somewhere else is as developed as the US is then wages will be the same as they are in the US. Thus things

  • Climate change unfreezes 200,000-year-old ‘doorway to hell’

    Siberia’s enormous “hellmouth” crater in the melting permafrost is growing fast — and it’s opening a portal to a 200,000-year-old world. The Batgaika crater, known to the local Yakutian people as the “doorway to the underworld,” is one of the largest of a growing number of pits collapsing across the Siberian landscape as the ice beneath the surface turns to slush — and methane gas. But this crater in particular offers some form of a silver lining. It’s revealing eons of climate change in the region, along with long-buried animal carcasses and petrified forests. The half-mile-wide, 275-foot-deep crater is growing at the rate of 30 to 100 feet a year as the ice around its edges gives way. Researchers

  • Judge: Casey Anthony may have killed her child by accident

    Former Circuit Judge Belvin Perry Jr. on Wednesday said he believes Casey Anthony may have killed her daughter by accident, that she tried to quiet the child with chloroform and simply used too much. It’s a theory, he said, and if jurors had come to that conclusion, they might have found her guilty of second-degree murder or manslaughter. Anthony was charged with first-degree murder after her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, disappeared in 2008. Anthony was charged with first-degree murder, and prosecutors asked for the death penalty, but a jury in 2011 acquitted her. Perry presided over the trial. In a phone interview Wednesday, he did not find fault with the verdict but said evidence showed that

But regardless of what you put in it, we bet you aren't using that space for its intended purpose: a warming drawer. Yep, that's right. It sounds crazy that appliance manufacturers expect us to let such a large potential storage space sit empty, but on some oven models, it's designed to be a spot to keep your food warm. If you're skeptical, just dig up your oven's owner's manual. You may find a description like this: "The warming drawer is designed to keep hot foods at serving temperature.

  • Former Ferrari salesman alleges odometer rollbacks

The device, called a Deis Tester, is "likely" in use at other Ferrari dealerships in U.S. and around the world and that the Italian automaker is informed every time the machine is used for a rollback, says the suit filed by the former salesman, Robert "Bud" Root of Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., against dealership chain New Country Motor Car Group.

  • Venezuela is down to its last $10 billion

    Caracas is running out of cash. Venezuela only has $10.5 billion in foreign reserves left, according to its most recent central bank data. For rest of the year, Venezuela owes roughly $7.2 billion in outstanding debt payments. In 2011, Venezuela had roughly $30 billion in reserves. In 2015, it had $20 billion. The trend can't persist much longer, but it's hard to know exactly when Venezuela will run completely out of cash. "The question is: Where is the floor?" says Siobhan Morden, head of Latin America fixed income strategy at Nomura Holdings.

    It can be useful and efficient when one state recognizes a license or certification issued by another, as lawyers and bear hunters can attest. When it comes to permits to carry concealed weapons, however, this rationale doesn’t apply. It’s worth examining why. According to Republican Senator John Cornyn of Texas, who introduced the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act this week, the bill “strengthens both the constitutional right of law-abiding citizens to protect themselves and the power of states to implement laws best-suited for the folks who live there.” The bill does indeed strengthen the constitutional right of law-abiding citizens to protect themselves using a firearm.
