  2. NEWS Boys let black widow bite them in hopes of turning into Spider-Man By Lee Brown May 25, 2020 | 2:13pm Enlarge Image Black Widow spiderGetty Images Three young Bolivian brothers were hospitalized after getting a black widow spider to bite them — thinking it would turn them into Spider-Man, according to officials. The Marvel-loving siblings — aged 12, 10 and 8 — found the spider while herding goats in Chayanta, a Ministry of Health official revealed at coronavirus briefing Saturday, according to Telemundo. Thinking it would give them superhero powers, they prodded it with a stick until it bit each of them in turn, the official, Virgilio Pietro, said. Finding them crying, their mom rushed them to a nearby health center, which transferred them to a nearby hospital, Telemundo said. The would-be Peter Parkers were transferred a third time, taken to the Children’s Hospital in La Paz the next day with fevers, tremors and muscle pains, according to the report. There, they were successfully treated and discharged last Wednesday, almost a week after they were bitten, the report says. Pietro shared the drama as a warning to parents, saying that “for children everything is real, movies are real” — even though they are in fact an “illusion,” according to Telemundo. With venom 15 times stronger than a rattlesnake’s, black widows are one of the most feared spiders in the world, and the most venomous in north America, National Geographic says. While their bites are not usually fatal, children are among those most at risk, along with the elderly and infirm, the site says. They are not aggressive and bite only in self-defense, National Geographic says — including, it seems, when prodded by young superhero fans. https://nypost.com/2020/05/25/boys-let-black-widow-bite-them-in-hopes-of-turning-into-spider-man/

  7. It's always a different matter with you. And a violation of a law is a violation of the law. Marching or gathering without a permit if so required is the same thing no matter who does it. Ditto for trespassing. I happen to think that the constitution overrides local law. You seem to think that if you approve of the cause the override is good but if you don't it is bad. I do wish you would be consistent. Martin Luther King may have advocated non-violence but what he did and wanted others to do was bound to provoke violence. And that violence led to more violence in areas where there was much less discrimination than in the south.

  9. LEGAL Published 5 hours ago Teen dubbed 'Baby Al Capone' stole $23.8M from cryptocurrency bigwig: lawsuit Since 15, the now 18-year-old has stolen more than $100M through cryptocurrency scheme, lawsuit says By Stephanie PagonesFOXBusiness Private companies should allow innovation in crypto market: CoinList co-founder CoinList co-founder and president Andy Bromberg says more people believe cryptocurrency is a 'safe haven,' which is causing the industry to grow in the market. A teenager at the center of a multimillion-dollar cryptocurrency scheme kept his alleged criminal habits under wraps to classmates and even family as they assumed he was just a gamer who hit the jackpot with bitcoin, according to court papers and a New York Post report. Ellis Pinsky was 15 when he allegedly began his scheme, through which he has stolen more than $100 million in cryptocurrency as "the ringleader" of what a federal lawsuit calls "a sophisticated cybercrime spree," court papers show. But the teen's habits and mysterious wealth apparently never raised alarm bells at his high school or even at home in Westchester County. "His best friend thought he was making money through trading Bitcoin and stock," an ­insider told the Post, under the condition of anonymity, later adding: "I think he told his parents that he made Bitcoin online through video games and got lucky." But Pinsky could only stay out of the spotlight for so long. Cryptocurrency bigwig Michael Terpin sued Pinsky, now 18, and several other unidentified people on May 7 alleging the teenager bilked $23,808,125 from him, and stole tens of millions from others who are not named in the complaint, court papers show. "On the surface, Pinsky is an 'All American Boy.' The son of privilege, he is active in extracurricular activities and lives a suburban life with a doting mother who is a prominent doctor," the lawsuit states. "Despite their wholesome appearances, Pinsky and his other cohorts are in fact evil computer geniuses with sociopathic traits who heartlessly ruin their innocent victims' lives and gleefully boast of their multi-million-dollar heists." Terpin is seeking treble damages – three times the amount of the actual money lost – or more than $71 million, in addition to attorney fees and related costs. "These are crypto gangsters," Terpin told the outlet, adding that his nickname for Pinsky is "Baby Al Capone." Pinsky's attorney, Noam Biale, emphasized to the Post that he was just a kid at the time. "It is deeply unfortunate that Mr. Terpin has chosen to bring [a] lawsuit, full of smears and baseless allegations, for no imaginable purpose other than spite," Biale said, according to the report. Biale did not immediately respond to FOX Business' request seeking comment. Pinsky and his accomplices, the lawsuit alleges, hacked into victims' computers and their cryptocurrency accounts and stole the holdings, which they then laundered. In some cases, they would also allegedly steal personal information to get access to the accounts. "Look at Ellis' life and there is no reason for him to do what he did," the insider told the Post. "He's a standout kid with a dark side." The lawsuit describes how Pinsky's text messages paint a picture of a “wannabe Master of the Universe,” who thought himself invincible and boasted about his wealth. "I'm well off I'm good I don't need extra money I'm set for life," he allegedly wrote to one person. He allegedly spent millions on pricey watches and nights out at New York City clubs, and was "constantly reaching out for the support of equally callous offenders who think nothing of stealing millions from their victims to live a life of conspicuous consumption," the lawsuit states. The foundation in Pinsky's scheme began to crack after an accomplice, Nicholas Truglia, was busted following a separate cryptocurrency theft from 2018, according to the suit. Truglia, whom Terpin sued separately, ultimately identified Pinsky and a number of people "as his confederates in cryptocurrency thefts." Truglia, court papers allege, "described Pinsky's integral role in the theft" of Terpin's funds. "Along with other highly incriminating evidence, Truglia's detailed account of Pinsky's penetration of Plaintiff's accounts and how he unlocked the unique secret to the passcodes for his crypto-wallets conclusively demonstrates that Pinsky was one of the hackers," court papers further show. No law enforcement charges have been filed against Pinsky. SEE VIDEO REPORT, TWEET ; https://www.foxbusiness.com/money/teen-cryptocurrency-theft-lawsuit

  11. In this case it was indeed a 'breach of peace'...…….. After MLK died---well, yes...…….different matter...………………...No, MLK never preached or intended violence. Racism caused those pictures you mention...….. Yes---King was arrested for violating the laws of the South at that time...…..would you compare the modern "shutdown" protesters" with MLK ? I would not.

  13. pay for a few of Conman's occupations were funded mostly by tax dollars, although the pension was not, except for various government regs that insured some safety...……………..those who work for the public good are compensated for their work like anyone else (pension partially gov. funded), not an entitlement...……………………………….No, SS was much more than that, including benefits for those will little or NO work time...... …..agree that $ is used for things than the original intention----that issue comes down to elections and issues we care about. Doubt that issue will even come up by November...
  14. well, no--it is "doled out" by request of those who feel / are entitled...………….all entitlements are similar. Yes---gov. must take it first.

  16. The UC system is probably the only government program designed specifically for the working man/woman. Notice how terrible it is run compared to government payroll checks, government retirement checks and welfare checks. Once again, the working man/woman is on the bottom of the priority list.
  17. Well then since your pension, health care and pay was covered by TAXES that would make those entitlements as well. Social security and UC funds were intended to provide WORKERS with money in the event they got displaced from their job due to circumstances beyond their control and to provide monies for when they finally retire. Problem is that the government you love so much (at least Democrats) used those monies for other things they weren’t intended for. Just look at the latest audit of our great gas tax where more money was used than intended for other things besides the roads!
  18. Two hairstylists with COVID-19 may have exposed 140 people Estradaanton/iStock Posted on May 25, 2020 by ABC News By MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(SPRINGFIELD, Mo.) — Two hairstylists potentially exposed 140 customers to COVID-19 at a Great Clips in Missouri, according to alerts from a local health department.The Springfield-Greene County Health Department announced on Friday that a hairstylist who tested positive for COVID-19 had potentially exposed 84 clients at a Great Clips in Springfield. The case is believed to have been contracted through travel to a “high-intensity” area in Missouri, director of Health Clay Goddard said Friday. Then on Saturday, the health department announced a second hairstylist who tested positive for the virus had potentially exposed 56 clients at the same salon, located in a strip mall. Both employees were symptomatic and were wearing face coverings while working, health officials said.The potential exposure from both cases took place over the course of nine days, between May 12 and May 20.All 140 clients will be notified and offered testing, along with seven co-workers, health officials said. The clients were also wearing face coverings, which should help limit transmission, Goddard said.The Great Clips location is temporarily closed. A voice recording advises callers to visit two other nearby locations of the franchise.The co-owners of that Great Clips franchise, Brittany Hager and Jennifer Small, released a statement to KY3 after the first employee possibly exposed numerous clients.”As Great Clips franchisees and co-owners of CM Clips, LLC, we recently learned that an employee in one of our salons in Springfield, Missouri has tested positive for COVID-19 and is following medical advice and taking appropriate actions. The well-being of Great Clips customers and stylists in the salon is our top priority and proper sanitization has always been an important cosmetology industry practice for Great Clips salons,” Hager and Small said in the statement. “We’ve closed the salon where the employee works and it’s currently undergoing additional sanitizing and deep cleaning consistent with guidance from the Springfield-Greene County Health Department and the CDC. We will reopen the salon based on guidance from the health department.”Hair salons were able to reopen in Missouri on May 4, when the state lifted many of its restrictions as part of its first phase of reopening.On Saturday, Springfield entered phase two of its reopening plan, allowing bars, gyms and public pools to reopen, as well as gatherings of up to 50 people, following social distancing requirements.Missouri has 11,988 confirmed cases of COVID-19, with cases up 6.2% over the last seven days, according to the state health department. There have been 681 deaths
  19. The presence of a weapon is not a breach of the peace. I think your memory is faulty. The summer of '64 was particularly nasty. The threats of "race riots" were common. Then a few years later I lived in the middle of the riots when Martin Luther King died. They called out the National Guard. Doesn't count does it as you don't recall it? The nonviolence might have been enforced around the leadership but there was plenty of violence. Kings whole philosophy was to increase tension to the point that something had to give. What gave led to those pictures of people being beaten bloody by the police. Those pictures did more to advance the Civil Rights Movement than all of the rhetoric. You need to read his Letter From a Birmingham Jail. This is the same thing that the anti-shut down protesters are doing. Increase the tension until Wolf and his ilk either back down or stand on one side of a line with angry people on the other side. As for law breaking they broke the same laws that current protesters are breaking. Sit-ins were trespassing. Marches were parades without permits. Refusing to go to the back of the bus was a breaking one of your Jim Crow Laws. I guess any group that blocks streets is disturbing the peace and if they refuse to move and have to be carried off limp they are interfering with the duty of the police. The Civil Rights Movement was all about one law for all. I don't think King would like your one law for them and another law for us attitude.
  20. Congrats Billy C ! Enjoy those Golden Years!!
  21. Call it what you will. It is still money taken from the people and doled out as the government sees fit. That doesn't make it an entitlement. That makes it a government controlled Ponzi scheme. The government wouldn't have any money to feed these programs if they didn't take it from us first.

  24. Country music artist arrested in Downtown Nashville NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - A country music artist is apologizing after he was arrested in Downtown Nashville over the weekend. Metro officers observed Country Music artist Morgan C. Wallen being kicked out of Kid Rock's bar at 221 Broadway by bar security just after 11 p.m. on Saturday. According to the police report, Wallen was kicked out for being disorderly inside of the bar, kicking glass items inside. Officers at the scene said Wallen had a strong odor of alcohol and was given the opportunity to walk away from the scene with his friends, but he refused and was placed into police custody. Wallen posted about the incident on his Twitter on Sunday evening saying he stopped back to the bar to apologize for the incident and included a thank you to the Metro Police for their work. Wallen has been charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct. Wallen signed with Big Loud Records in 2016 and released his debut single "The Way I talk" soon afterwards.
  25. Those 1960s marches were peaceful----no weapons. True that some Jim Crow Laws may have been broken, but I cannot remember that occurring. Violations of the law by recent protesters?? Here are a few: . ---- the brandishing of weapons, trespassing into the legislative chambers, restricting and obstructing police officers, disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace of ordinance violations. That is just a start......
  26. Good question. We elect commissions and boards to decide those things.
  27. disagree----------it is a tax. It is funded by taxes like all entitlements. Like all entitlements you have a choice to collect it if you become 'entitled', etc....
