Robber Calls Police After Being Shot At

21-year-old Damont Meredith called 911 and reported that someone had shot at him. When deputies arrived, he gladly took them back to the scene of the crime.

There’s only one thing he left out. He was the one that actually committed the crime!

While Meredith was showing the police where the crime took place, 911 dispatch received another call. This…

Democrat Sarah Riggs Amico goes after religious voters in Georgia – Christian Century

Excerpt:

Mixtures of religion and politics aren’t exactly unusual in Georgia, a state situated squarely in the heart of the Bible Belt, where asking someone where they go to church is a common icebreaker.

But this year, no one is combining faith—however broadly defined—and politics as acutely as Sarah Riggs Amico, 40, a newly an­nounced Democratic candidate for US Senate, running to oppose incumbent Repub­lican Sen. David Perdue.

Amico, who lost a 2018 campaign for lieutenant governor, launched her campaign in August with a video that made a direct appeal to religious…

Why Fossils Are Mostly Male – Atlas Obscura

Excerpt:

While these biases certainly generate interesting theories about Pleistocene behavior (and modern human behavior), they create very real problems for science based on museum collections. These specimens are one of the largest sources of data for understanding the anatomy, variability, diet, range, and more of long-extinct animals. And if that’s the case, much of what we know about these creatures comes from a population that’s not reflective of reality.

How anti-vaxxers target grieving moms and turn them into crusaders – NBC News

Excerpt:

Anti-vaccination activists have long targeted their message to parents of autistic kids. They have also, however, pursued another vulnerable population of parents searching for answers — mothers and fathers of babies who have died unexpectedly, especially when the deaths are linked to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDS.

At a time when the U.S. faces the largest outbreaks of vaccine-preventable illnesses in decades, a network of activists is finding new recruits to the anti-vaccination cause by raising questions about the sudden deaths of several dozen babies and young children.

What We Can Learn From YouTube’s Verification Reversal Decision – Geeks and Gamers

What We Can Learn From YouTube’s Verification Reversal Decision – Geeks and Gamers

from Endadget: YouTube announced plans to change its policy around channel verification status. In a move to follow other social networks, the company said changes tying approval to authenticity and prominence would mean some might lose their tag, and would have to go through appeals to keep it.

After a quick and loud backlash to the plan YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki apologized, and YouTube just announced “Channels that currently have verification will now keep it without appeal.” The plan is still to reopen its process for verification next month for all channels that have over 100,000 subscribers, with an eye toward stamping the tag on channels that are both “authentic” and “complete.”

Excerpt:

Anti-gun Representatives tried and failed on Wednesday, September 18th to override Governor Chris Sununu’s vetoes of three-anti gun bills.

House Bill 109 would have effectively banned the private transfer of firearms, with exemptions too narrow to matter.  As written, the bill would have imposed a definition of “commercial sales” broad enough to cover private transactions at gun shows, forcing nearly all individuals transfer through Federal Firearm Licensed (FFL) dealers.

Spain’s prime minister has offered to give Catalonia a referendum on greater autonomy as he seeks to pre-empt a new drive for independence from Barcelona’s separatists.

Pedro Sánchez said he was ready to give more powers to Spain’s wealthiest region but would not entertain any vote on independence. “It is a referendum for autonomy, not for self-determination,” he told Spanish radio.

Catalonia already has a high degree of autonomy, controlling its own police service, schools, health service and prisons.

Italian towns in Molise will pay you $27,000 to move there – WSLS 10

Excerpt:

The region of Molise, a wild, beautiful but overlooked area that lies east of Rome, has announced it will pay people more than $27,000 to settle in one of 106 underpopulated villages in an effort to prevent their communities from dying.

Anyone who takes up the offer will receive 700 euros a month (about $770) for up to three years to help them settle in an area known for its green pastures, olive groves and snowy mountaintops.

There’s a catch — they’ll also have to commit to starting a small business, in order to contribute to the local economy.
