• Kidnapped teen was gang-raped, killed and fed to gators

    A teenager who vanished from Myrtle Beach, SC, in 2009 was repeatedly raped in a gang “stash house” for several days - then she was shot dead and fed to alligators when her disappearance generated too much media attention, the FBI said last week. The shocking new details about the mysterious disappearance of 17-year-old Rochester, NY, native Brittanee Drexel came largely from a “jailhouse confession” that was subsequently substantiated by others with “tidbits” and “secondhand information,” FBI Agent Gerrick Munoz testified in a federal court transcript obtained by the Post and Courier of Charleston. The inmate who gave the alleged bombshell confession, Taquan Brown, is serving a 25-year sentence for voluntary manslaughter in a different case. Brown told authorities he was present during the final agonizing moments of Drexel’s life, Munoz said.

  • A letter to my breadwinner husband

    My dearest Bill, The other day, around 3:00pm on a random Wednesday, I was headed to the grocery store to get something to make for dinner. As you know, I’ve been slacking on the food front for some time and can’t seem to get organized the way I used to. Remember when I would go through our cookbooks every Sunday and plan the meals for the week, and then shop once for the entire week? I know, I know, I always made a second trip; but still, the bulk of the food was in the fridge. I did that for more than a decade, but it was such a monotonous task I can’t bring myself to keep up with it. So now I play ‘catch as catch can’ and, as you like to say, shop like a French woman who goes to the store

  • Russian man volunteers for first human head transplant

    While severing someone’s head and attaching it to another person’s body sounds like something straight out of a science fiction or horror movie, some real-life scientists say they are planning to do just that - as early as next year. Italian neuroscientist Dr. Sergio Canavero made headlines last year when he announced his plans to perform the first human head transplant in 2017. Since then, he’s recruited Chinese surgeon Dr. Xiaoping Ren to work with him, and now has found a volunteer patient for the procedure: a Russian man named Valery Spiridonov. In its September issue, The Atlantic profiles Spiridonov and the two scientists who hope to perform the experimental - and highly controversial - procedure.

  • What the Hell Is Going on in Colorado?

    Out in Colorado, incumbent Democratic Senator Michael Bennet was supposed to be one of the more endangered Democratic incumbents this year. However, according to the latest Quinnipiac poll, the man is cruising by 16 points. There is a reason for this. That reason is named Darryl Glenn, and he's the latest indicator of how The Base that the Republicans have cultivated so tenderly over the past 40 years can guarantee equally a primary upset win and a general election blowout loss, especially in presidential election years. Now, though, to the list contained Sharron Angle and Christive O'Donnell, we can add the name of Darryl Glenn. In June, to the enormous credit of himself and his staff, Glenn,

  • Dear Abby: Wife bans contact with his longtime co-worker

    DEAR ABBY: I recently retired after 26 years of working with a professional partner of the opposite sex. Now my wife expects me to cut off all communication with her. There was never any intimacy or sexual attraction at all, just a friendship established over many years. I have explained this to my wife many times, but she refuses to believe me and wants this person out of my life for good. How can I explain this to someone I have worked with for so many years? Is my wife’s request reasonable? Can’t married males have female friends, or am I restricted to only male friends for the rest of my life? - FENCED IN, IN WASHINGTON DEAR FENCED IN: No, I do not think it is reasonable, and the implication

  • ‘I’ve Never Seen Anything Like This Before’: The Housing Markets in the Hamptons, Aspen And Miami Are All Crashing

    One month ago, we said that “it is not looking good for the US housing market”, when in the latest red flag for the US luxury real estate market, we reported that sales in the Hamptons plunged by half and home prices fell sharply in the second quarter in the ultra-wealthy enclave, New York’s favorite weekend haunt for the 1%-ers. Reuters blamed this on “stock market jitters earlier in the year” which  damped the appetite to buy, however one can also blame the halt of offshore money laundering, a slowing global economy, the collapse of the petrodollar, and the drastic drop in Wall Street bonuses. As the Denver Post reported recently, high-end sales that fuel Aspen’s $2 billion-a-year real estate market are evaporating, pushing Pitkin County’s sales volume down more than 42 percent to $546.45 million for the first half of the year from $939.91 million in the same period of 2015. Like in the Hamptons, the question everyone is asking is “why”?

  • Revealed: Why Bell Helicopter's New V-280 Could Be a Game Changer on the Battlefield

    A new Army-led effort to engineer a next-generation tiltrotor aircraft for the 2030s includes the integration of a high-tech 360-degree sensor suite quite similar to the one used on the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter called a Distributed Aperture Systems, or DAS, developers explained.  “Instead of having sensors mounted to the turret, you have sensors that are mounted to the aircraft - so essentially you have sensors staring in 360-degrees around the aircraft at any given time. Those images are stitched together so it appears as one continuous image to the pilot. Both pilots can make use of the same system,” Vince Tobin, Vice President of Advanced Tiltrotor Systems, Bell Helicopter, told Scout Warrior
