• Some cities are taking another look at LED lighting after AMA warning

    If people are sleepless in Seattle, it may not be only because they have broken hearts. The American Medical Association issued a warning in June that high-intensity LED streetlights - such as those in Seattle, Los Angeles, New York, Houston and elsewhere - emit unseen blue light that can disturb sleep rhythms and possibly increase the risk of serious health conditions, including cancer and cardiovascular disease. The AMA also cautioned that those light-emitting-diode lights can impair nighttime driving vision. Similar concerns have been raised over the past few years, but the AMA report adds credence to the issue and is likely to prompt cities and states to reevaluate the intensity of LED lights they install.

  • Hollywood Tries to ID A-Lister Accused of Raping Corey Haim

    Forget Brad and Angelina - a much more sinister tabloid headline has captured Hollywood’s attention this week, and inspired grim, rampant speculation about whether a famous actor repeatedly raped a now-deceased child star. Radar Online last week published a bombshell report claiming to know the identity of a beloved male star who sexually abused an underage Corey Haim in the prime of his career. Haim died at age 38, of pneumonia, in 2010. The report, commonly referred to as a “blind item,” contends that the widely known entertainer and family man used his influence to commit the horrific acts - all part of a wider ring of alleged Hollywood pedophilia that Radar has been investigating for four years.

  • Hoarder may not have known son’s corpse was in her home

    The elderly Brooklyn woman found this month living with the skeletal remains of her son, possibly for as long as 20 years, is a legally blind hoarder who may not have even known he was there, NYPD sources said. The chilling discovery of the skeleton was made Sept. 15 when a relative showed up at Rita Wolfensohn’s Midwood home to fetch her belongings and take them to her in the hospital. In a debris-choked second-floor bedroom, sister-in-law Josette Buchman found a “completely intact” skeleton, dressed in jeans, socks and a shirt, lying on its back on a thin mattress on the floor, police sources told The Post. “It’s like some reverse ‘Psycho’ scene,” a law-enforcement source said at the time, referring to Hitchcock’s 1960 horror flick in which a son, Norman Bates, keeps his dead mother’s remains in a basement.

  • Feral Dog that Didn’t Want to Be Rescued, Rescues His Human Mom from Anxiety

    09/24/2016 Posted by When Riley was found wandering the woods of Georgina, Ontario he was a feral dog that was completely terrified of human beings.  Flash forward to today, and Riley is an entirely different dog.  He’s got a very loving human mom now, and he actually helps her get over with her anxieties now. According to his rescuers, Riley had absolutely no interest whatsoever in being brought to a shelter.  In fact, by the time he was brought to Georgina Animal Shelter, he was what most people would have deemed a lost cause.  However his rescuers and the people at the shelter absolutely refused to give up on him. “He wasn’t even in the shelter for more than a week when I stumbled across his

  • Stephen Hawking warned us about contacting aliens, but this astronomer says it's 'too late'

    In 2010, physicist Stephen Hawking voiced concern about the possibility that we might contact extraterrestrial life by transmitting signals into space.  However, SETI senior astronomer Seth Shostak told us that it's too late to consider whether or not we should send such transmissions because we've already been doing it for decades.

  • The FBI Investigation of EmailGate Was a Sham

    From the moment the EmailGate scandal went public more than a year ago, it was obvious that the Federal Bureau of Investigation never had much enthusiasm for prosecuting Hillary Clinton or her friends. Under President Obama, the FBI grew so politicized that it became impossible for the Bureau to do its job - at least where high-ranking Democrats are concerned. As I observed in early July, when Director James Comey announced that the FBI would not be seeking prosecution of anyone on Team Clinton over EmailGate, the Bureau had turned its back on its own traditions of floating above partisan politics in the pursuit of justice. “Malfeasance by the FBI, its bending to political winds, is a matter

  • Dear Abby: No, you can't come visit my place

    DEAR ABBY: I lost my longtime job but have remained in contact with a few former co-workers, meeting for an occasional lunch or dinner. One woman in particular has been pushing to meet at my place. Abby, I’m not proud of where I live now, and I don’t want to have to explain this to her. So far, I have side-stepped by saying that I prefer to get out of the house, but I’m worried that one day she will announce that she’s “in my neighborhood” and ask to drop by. I’m really uncomfortable with that, but I don’t know an appropriate response that will keep our relationship cordial, because I do value the times we see each other. Any suggestions? - DOWNSCALE IN DELAWARE DEAR DOWNSCALE: There are various
