NBC has this story of a man who was picked up in Ohio on outstanding warrants in Maine for a number of things but cops later found out he was married to four different women in four different states! The “Cupid of chaos” is now facing bigamy charges on top of the drunk driving and domestic violence charge as well.
Yahoo has this story of a volunteer working at a charity book sale in Pheonix Arizona. She came across a copy of “The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.” and found that part of the book is cut out in the inside and holds $4000! She was actually kind-hearted about it and contacted the previous owners family and gave them the money. I will agree with the article as that probably made them go through all their books for anything else!
The New York Times has the big story of the end of the line for Opportunity Rover vehicle on Mars. The space probe’s mission was only to last 90 days but ended up lasting close to 15 years. Starting in 2004, the probe brought us a lot of pictures never seen from the Red Planet. Opportunity travel around 28 miloes during it’s lifetime! It finally ran out of juice and ended its record-breaking run this week. I give it and the team behind the mission a hearty salute for a job well done.
The Washington Post has this story of a fresco of Narcissus in an ancient house’s Atrium. The artwork was found in the ruins of Pompeii in Italy. The town is best known for being buried under rocks and lava in an ancient Volcanic Eruption. Archaeologists have been digging around in since the 1760s. There were also found a lot of pottery and vases so it is a heck of a find!
MSN has this story that scientists have found that having two or more diet sodas a day may pose an increased risk of Clot-based Strokes or a heart attack in women over 50 years old. The flavorings aren’t good for you anyway, but studies have shown they really aren’t that good to postmenopausal women. So if you are a woman and worried about it, Switch to juice!
Eater has this story that Panera Bread restaurants are ending the experiment where a customer could pay what the could at the Panera Cares charity restaurants. The idea was customers with money issues could pay what they could at the donation fueled restaurant. The idea was a novel concept when it launched in 2010. Nine years later though Panera admitted defeat and is closing the last Panera Cares restaurant in Boston. Bummer!
Time has this story that Amazon has officially canceled the idea of a second headquarters in New York. The idea has been going for a little while now and there was plenty of kickback from people and politicians from the area. There were a lot of tax incentives to try to get the online retailer to build a second office space in the area but those plans have now been scrapped. Amazon has said it won’t try to look for a new place for the time being either.
People has the story of Prince Phillip avoiding any issues after he surrendered his Driver’s license. The 97-year-old husband to Queen Elisabeth II was in a fender-bender close to the palace in England about 3 weeks ago. I guess no one was going to tell him that at 97, he’s a bit elderly to be behind the wheel and driver around!
And with that, we end this week’s Round up of interest news found online. Remember to keep your eyes open (money may be stashed in that book!) and keep reading!
