” Earthquake-prone California is a far from ideal place to string metal over water and hope it stays put. But engineers of the new eastern span of the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge say the structure should last at least 150 years. This fall, when the new portion opens, the Bay Bridge will stretch 2047 feet, becoming the world’s longest self-anchored suspension bridge.
Unlike a conventional suspension bridge, in which cables anchor on shore, the Bay Bridge can’t rely on the surrounding muddy ground—which amplifies seismic movement—for support. So the bridge is anchored to itself, with a single cable looping around the roadway and held high by a steel tower. ”
” Another day, another monster? Not quite, this time. A large aquatic animal, apparently carnivorous, has washed up in New Zealand. The body is badly decomposed, and suggests a crocodilian head with a twin fin tail.Sydney Morning Herald article suggestions so far contain just about everything:
A marine mammal expert from the Museum of New Zealand, Anton van Helden, told NZ media that based on the creature’s fins, it was most likely to be a killer whale. The body had probably been floating around at sea for some time before it washed up, he said.
The orca suggestion isn’t quite so far fetched, despite the apparent crocodilian resemblance. Orca teeth are similarly structured, and hooked. Information from the Orca Project shows distinctly similar teeth.”—
” Officials in Kansas City, Mo., said a puppy was found locked in a sport utility vehicle that had been impounded three weeks earlier.
Rotert said no one noticed the puppy inside the car until she jumped up on the dashboard while an employee was marking vehicles for auction.
Veterinarians said the 12-week-old puppy is lucky to be alive after spending three weeks locked inside the vehicle, where she is believed to have fed on leftover McDonald’s trash.”
“ Last week I requested my readers to send in photos of their children/grandchildren to show support for the New Jersey family that had the Department of Youth and Family Services (DYFS) raid their home. The unlawful visit was all due to a photo the dad posted on Facebook of his son with a rifle.
I received hundreds of e-mails from parents that shared their child’s gun photo to show support for the Moore family. These are the kids ‘facing the fight’.”
“ The Pico. Beretta’s new .380 pocket pistol is a departure from their traditional line of steel framed concealed carry guns, but completely in line with the aesthetic of the Nano. It is sleek, slim, and completely snag free.
But the Pico doesn’t sacrifice function for form, the way a lot of the micro .380s do. It locks back when empty and has a slide release. The take-down is also easily accomplished by means of the small flat-head screw.
All of the Picos, at this point at least, have stainless slides. The polymer frame has a steel insert, which is the serialized part. So frames can be swapped out to meet your whimsical fashion needs, or to include a laser from Lasermax (which is built into a frame), or a similarly situated flashlight (which has not yet been released).”
” Ever since the first single shot pistol was crafted centuries ago, people have just dug handguns. In the intervening half millennium, thousands of designs have come forth and a few have risen above all others. Last year Guns.com brought you eight to shoot before you die. Here are five more that just have to pass through your hands before you head to that great gun show in the sky.”
1. Remington New Army
” The world that was the antebellum period in United States was one of rapid industrial expansion and in the 1850s firearms makers were stumbling all over themselves to produce the next great gun to roll off the line. One such gunmaker was Fordyce Beals. After studying the factory process for S&W and Colt revolvers, he came up with a design that was significantly improved in function and production. His design, patented and licensed to Remington in 1858, used a solid frame design that included a top strap that went over the cylinder. This was stronger, more durable, allowed the user to swap cylinders out easily and added a layer of safety to the user if the cap and ball revolver chain fired.”
” After the Houston Rockets went into Chesapeake Energy Arena and confidently took down the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 5 on Wednesday, CSN Houston brought gleeful Rockets fans all the relevant news and notes from the big series-extending road win — James Harden‘s fantastic shooting performance, the Thunder’s failed “Hack-a-Whatever-His-Name-Is” strategy, the eighth-seeded Rockets’ chances of forcing a winner-take-all Game 7 back in OKC … and, of course, most importantly, the baby with its pants down wandering out into the middle of the camera shot.”
Wisconsin Family Discovers Fully-Stocked Fallout Shelter In Their Back Yard 50 Years After It Was Installed At The Height Of The Cold War
” For more than a decade after they moved into their house in Neenah, Wisconsin, the Zwick family knew they had a Cold War bunker in their backyard.
It was not until 2010 that anyone thought to open the heavy steel hatch, climb down the ladder and explore the 8-foot-by-10-foot chamber that the home’s previous owner had built to protect his family from a nuclear attack.
Floating in five feet of water that had seemed into the bunker were sealed U.S. Army boxed packed with all of the supplies a family would need to survive two weeks underground.
‘We assumed it was just this empty space,’ homeowner Carol Hollar-Zwick told the Appleton Post-Crescent.
The boxes, old military ammunition crates, contained markings that suggested there might be explosives inside, so the family called the local branch of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
Agents opened the crates to find… Hawaiian Punch.
‘It was all of what you would expect to find in a 1960s fallout shelter. It was food, clothing, medical supplies, tools, flashlights, batteries – items that you would want to have in a shelter if you planned to live there for two weeks.’
Everything remained remarkably well-preserved, thanks to the airtight containers the supplies were kept in.
The family donated all of the items to the Neenah Historical Society, which has curated an exhibit about the Cold War and the fear of the Soviets using ‘the bomb.’”
