A pregnant waitress was reduced to tears by an anonymous police officer’s stunning bill.

Courtney English via CBS Philly You rarely hear about a police officer making the news for doing his or her job. In the news, “if it bleeds it leads,” so most of the time we hear about officers there has been a terrible tragedy. That’s why this story out of New Jersey is so important. Courtney English, 23, is nearly eight months pregnant and works on her feet as a waitress at the Lamp Post Diner in Clementon, New Jersey. Although she is unmarried, her father says her boyfriend is supportive, and will play a part in the child’s life. However, making ends meet is a challenge for English and she intends to take six to eight weeks off work …

Visited This Museum Recently? You May Have Been Exposed To Radiation

For nearly two decades, visitors to the Grand Canyon Museum Collection may have been unknowingly exposed to unsafe levels of radiation, according to a new report by the Arizona Republic.  A “rogue” email sent on February 4 by the park’s safety, health, and wellness manager Elston Stephenson alleges nothing was done to warn visitors or workers of previous exposure to unsafe levels of radiation after three 5-gallon buckets containing uranium ore were found (and subsequently removed) by federal officials from the collections museum. In the email, the manager alleges the cover-up was a “top management failure”, further warning of possible health consequences from the radiation exposure. “If you were in the Museum Collections Building (2C) between the year 2000 and June 18, …

Call for ‘1p a garment’ fast fashion charge

Why is it fashionable to fret about fashion? The fashion industry creates jobs worldwide and is said to be worth £28bn to the UK economy – but it is estimated to produce as many greenhouse gases as all the planes flying in the world. Libby Peake, from the think-tank Green Alliance, told BBC News: “One of the areas in which you could make a big difference in terms of your personal climate change impact is by reducing the amount of clothes you buy and keeping them for longer, then donating them to charity shops to keep them in the national wardrobe.” The clothing trade consumes vast volumes of fresh water and creates chemical and plastic pollution. Manmade fibres are found …

People Are Explaining Why Female Only Parking Spaces Exist After This Guy Points Out Its Not Equal

AS 1979 User AspiringProducer19 describes himself as an “approx 22.5 year old man” who had recently received a great job as a corporate level administrator. Two months into his job, the employee stated he had no complaints until one day he came across a sign in the parking lot that read “female employee parking space only!” The user then prefaced his question by stating: “let me clarify I am not “Irate” or “fuming” about it, but I dont really buy into the whole chivalry, white knighting culture that the men of previous generations upheld fedora intensifies.” “So theres not too much to say, I guess I’m more curious in others opinions on this. I am an approx 22.5 year old …

Did Kristen And Carter From ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Break Up? Betches

It was only a matter of time. The relationships on this season of Vanderpump Rules all seemed a little too stable. No one cheated on anyone else in front of an elderly patient. No one got a stripper pregnant in Vegas. Sure, Ariana and Lala had a drunken “moment” in the back of a car, but Sandoval seemed more turned on by that than anything else. High fives all around for girl-on-girl action! It truly seemed like these nearly middle-aged degenerates may have gotten their act together. Enter Kristen and Carter. On Monday night’s episode of Vanderpump Rules, we were treated to some Crazy Kristen moments, the likes of which we have rarely seen since she screamed at her boss …

Some Sea Snakes Can Sense Light With Their Tails

Some animals have markings resembling a second eye on their hindquarters to trick predators into attacking the wrong end. Australian sea snakes have instead developed a light detector on their tail that can perform the eye’s most basic function, helping them move to safety. A small subgroup of sea snakes have been found to be the only reptiles with the trait. Decades ago, scuba divers on night dives noticed that when they shone their torches on olive sea snakes’ (Aipysurus laevis) paddle-like tails the snakes would move their tails away. A 1990 study confirmed the effect was real, with the sea snakes being able to detect light with their tails. However, Dr Kate Sanders of the University of Adelaide told …

‘Vanderpump Rules Recap’: Krazy Kristen Is Back Betches

We open back up at SUR with Guillermo’s meeting, which we already saw last week. I’ll just copy and paste my account from last week’s recap: Guillermo is like, “I don’t need a DJ, I need a bus boy, but James keeps f*cking it up.” YIKES. Mans is SALTY. Get him some tequila and lime. Before getting up from the table he’s like “oh yeah and BTW I’m still looking for a DJ.” What about DJ Mickey? You mean Mickey isn’t killing it on the 1s and 2s during Spicy Tequila Tuesdays? James bursts into tears and Peter is just like “kill me this is so awkward get me tf outta here.” RT, Peter. So James is DJing at Pump…so basically …

New Environmental Report Shows Just How In Danger We All Are

The Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) has published a damning report on the current state of mainstream political proposals, saying they have much to be desired when it comes to tackling the crisis we are facing. And while we have seen some progress, much still needs to be done. “Human-induced environmental change is occurring at an unprecedented scale and pace and the window of opportunity to avoid catastrophic outcomes in societies around the world is rapidly closing,” the summary of the report states. “These outcomes include economic instability, large-scale involuntary migration, conflict, famine and the potential collapse of social and economic systems. The historical disregard of environmental considerations in most areas of policy has been a catastrophic mistake.” The researchers …

Newly Decoded Great White Shark Genome Reveals Secrets Of The Species’ Success

Both feared and revered around the world, the great white shark is one of the most iconic creatures on the planet. Now, biologists have made a “major scientific step” and sequenced its entire genome, unlocking the secrets behind the species’ success.   Publishing their findings in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the team discovered that the shark’s genome is an impressive 1.5 times the size of our own. They also found DNA sequence changes that imply various genes have adapted to enhance the stability of the shark’s genome. Basically, this means great whites have evolved to minimize damage to their DNA, something that can lead to diseases like cancer. (Despite the popular misconception, sharks can actually get …

Scientists Think They Know How The Massive Bluestones Wound Up At Stonehenge

Excavations at two quarries in Wales suggest that Stonehenge’s famous “bluestones” were quarried around 5,000 years ago and traveled in a novel way to their final resting place 290 kilometers (180 miles) away. The two quarries show evidence of megalith quarrying in 3000 BCE, the same period of the first state of Stonehenge’s construction. Writing in the journal Antiquity, researchers pinpoint the exact locations of two of Stonehenge’s stone sources, further suggesting that the large stone pillars were excavated using a sophisticated wedging system and later transported by moveable platforms to a temporary spot near Stonehenge’s current location in Wiltshire, southwest England. “What’s really exciting about these discoveries is that they take us a step closer to unlocking Stonehenge’s greatest mystery – …
