Malaysian minister defends caning of prisoners

Strapped on a wooden frame, a prisoner braces himself for the brutal onslaught.
Within moments of the first blow being struck by the cane-wielding official, the skin on his buttocks breaks and the raw wound begins to open.
Lash after lash after lash follows until his flesh is reduced to a bloody mess. With each blow, the body flinches and there is a cry.

Impact: The prisoner is heard crying out in pain on the video, which has angered human rights campaigners
The six-minute clip, entitled Malaysian Caning Judicial Corporal Punishment, was posted on, an international video-sharing site.
"We are against the death penalty and corporal punishment," said council president Ambiga Sreenevasan.
"It's against all international human rights norms and the various conventions on torture. It's inhumane and degrading."
Flogging is widely used in Malaysia for various offences including drug crimes, rape and illegal entry into the country.

But Officer I'm Not Drunk

August 3, 2007

TAMPA, Fla. -- Amanda Lynn Bailey's T-shirt said it all.

When the 41-year-old got picked up on DUI charges she was wearing a shirt that read: "I'm not an alcoholic, I'm a drunk. Alcoholics go to meetings." The T-shirt was captured in her mug shot.

Bailey, of Riverview, was arrested Tuesday and charged with driving under the influence and driving with a canceled, suspended or revoked license. She posted $750 bond and was released.

Bush Administration Killed Increased Highway Repairs In 2004

The Republicans have no problem rubber-stamping $144 billion a year into a failed war in Iraq and Afghanistan without demanding results. But if we committed that same $12 billion a month out of a $2 trillion federal budget, and paid for it with a gas tax increase, we could address our infrastructure needs by the end of the next president’s first term. And we would create millions of good paying jobs at the same time and do our economy a world of good, especially if we married it to a redirection of oil and gas subsidies and a gas tax increase towards development of a domestic, sustainable energy industry. But for the sake of four cents a gallon back in 2004, the Bush Administration said no additional money would be provided for roads and bridges. Yet we pour billions of borrowed money into Iraq every month.

Zoo Removes Tiger’s Teeth for Better Interaction

Somewhere in Asia in an unnamed zoo, a tiger has been chained up and had its two large teeth pulled.
They did that so visitors can take pictures with the animal and not worry about being bitten.

Additionally a bear has a chain through its nose so that if it was to attempt to bite someone the mouth could be controlled.

Court Orders Man to Complete eBay Deal
Aug 3, 2007
SYDNEY, Australia (AP) - An Australian court ordered a man to hand over a vintage plane worth about $215,000 after he tried to back out of an eBay auction, a newspaper reported Friday.
The New South Wales state Supreme Court ordered Vin Thomas to complete the deal after he changed his mind about selling the 1946 World War II Wirraway plane he had placed on the Internet auction site last year, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.
Peter Smythe, a Australian warplane enthusiast, was the only person to bid on the item, matching the $128,640 reserve price just moments before the auction ended in August last year.
But Thomas had already agreed to sell the plane to someone else for $85,800 more than Smythe's offer, and backed out of the sale, the newspaper said.
Smythe took Thomas to court, hoping a judge would force him to follow through with the deal.
Judge Nigel Rein agreed, saying the eBay auction formed "a binding contract between the plaintiff and the defendant and ... should be specifically enforced."

32,000 Quarters Leak Onto Wis. Roads
Aug 3, 2007
MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Imagine the ringing noise of 32,000 quarters hitting the pavement.
An armored car company reported losing $8,000 in quarters along highways in two Wisconsin counties last month. About half has been returned.
"I guess somebody found that and figured it was an early Christmas," Jefferson County Detective Sgt. Lawrence Lee said.
Eight-hundred dollars of loose quarters was found late last month in the Madison area and $3,200 in Jefferson County the next day.
Loomis Fargo officials told authorities that a truck headed for Madison carrying boxes of quarters broke down in the Pewaukee area, so they sent another one. The load was transferred, but someone forgot to secure the door.
The driver was issued a citation for failure to prevent a leaking load.
A Loomis official declined comment Thursday.

Nissan gets testy with drunk drivers

Aug 3, 2007
Beer-breaths beware. A new concept car with breathalyzer-like detection systems may provide even greater traction for Japanese efforts to keep impaired drivers off the road.
Nissan's alcohol-detection sensors check odor, sweat and driver awareness, issuing a voice alert from the navigation system and locking up the ignition if necessary.
Odor sensors on the driver and passenger seats read alcohol levels, while a detector in the gear-shift knob measures the perspiration of the driver's palm when starting the car.
Other carmakers with detection systems include Sweden's Volvo, which has developed technology in which drivers blow into a measuring unit in the seat belt before an engine can start.
But Nissan's car includes a mounted camera that monitors alertness by eye scan, ringing bells and issuing a voice message in Japanese or English if a driver should pull over and rest.
The car technology is still in development, but general manager Kazuhiro Doi says the combination of detection systems will ultimately keep an eye on who's behind the wheel.
"We've placed odor detectors and a sweat sensor on the gear shift, but for example if the gear-shift sensor was bypassed by a passenger using it instead of the driver, the facial recognition system would be used," said Doi.
Also keeping a short leash on drivers, car seat belts tighten if drowsiness is detected, while an on-road monitor checks if a car is keeping its lane properly.
Japan's No. 3 carmaker has no specific timetable for marketing, but aims to yoke all technology to cut the number of fatalities involving its vehicles to half 1995 levels by 2015.
Nissan's Doi says they still have to distil exactly what impairment means: "If you drink one beer, it's going to register, so we need to study what's the appropriate level for the system to activate."

THE FUTURE IS HERE--Flying saucers go into production

A flying saucer that glides three meters off the ground and carries two passengers has gone into commercial production.
US Company Moller International has begun to manufacture parts for its Jetsons-like personal flying pod, the M200G Volantor.

The M200G is the size of a small car and is designed to take off and land vertically, reports Sky News.
Company founder Dr Moller calls the craft "the ultimate off-road vehicle" as it is able to travel over any surface.
"It's not a hovercraft, although its operation is just as easy," said the aeronautical engineering scientist.
"You can speed over rocks, swampland, fences, or log-infested waterways with ease because you're not limited by the surface."
The flying saucer is designed to fly at an altitude of up to three meters, where it benefits from extra lift created by a cushion of air - known as ground effect.
This allows the M200G to glide over terrain at 50mph, powered by eight of the Company's Rota power rotary engines.
Moller International has not arranged for training or licensing requirements to operate the vehicle.
But it is prepared to offer demonstration sessions at its California base once the vehicle is ready for market.
The company has said the price for its M200G could start as low as £44,340 depending on the number ordered.
