Iowa man complains to cops he was stiffed in drug deal
Melanie Eversley, USA TODAY 1:52 a.m. EDT October 9, 2013

An Iowa City, Iowa, man called police to complain he'd been stiffed in a drug deal, and when they arrived, he admitted he'd smoked crack cocaine recently and asked if they'd like to see the pipe he used, according to published reports.

Daniel Noehl, 57, of Iowa City, was arrested on Sunday and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and prohibited acts, according to the Iowa City police blotter.

Noehl telephoned the police to say he'd sold three bottles of his prescription medicine to a friend but the friend had not paid him, according to the Press-Citizen. Apparently, the police weren't traveling quickly enough for Noehl's taste and he telephoned them three or four times while they were en route to see what was taking so long, according to the Press-Citizen piece.

When police arrived, he told them he gave the friend about 230 pills total and was to be paid $1.25 per pill, the Press-Citizen reports.

Noehl was charged with two misdemeanors for the violations.

==============
He also confessed to tearing the label off his mattress and leaving the toilet seat up

The money museum in Utrecht will have to close down in November, due to a lack of money.
Oh, bitter irony.

The tensions between the Netherlands and Russia are getting more severe after a Dutch diplomat was mistreated in Russia. I won't lie by saying I'm not worried.

Violin Played as Titanic Sank to Go on Sale
The violin is believed to have been found at sea with the bandmaster's body more than a week after the Titanic sank.
By SYLVIA HUI | Friday, Oct 18, 2013 | Updated 6:52 AM PDT

It's a poignant scene familiar to anyone who has watched "Titanic" — as the doomed ship slides into the icy waters, musicians perform one last time for the passengers, playing with stoic resolve until the final hour.

None of the musicians survived in the 1912 disaster in the North Atlantic, but a violin believed to be the one played by bandmaster Wallace Hartley will now go on auction.

"It is just a remarkable piece of history," said Andrew Aldridge, of auctioneer Henry Aldridge and Son. "I have been an auctioneer for 20 years, but I have never seen an item that brings out this degree of emotion in people before."

The violin, with Hartley's name on it, is believed to have been found at sea with the musician's body more than a week after the Titanic sank.

The auction house, which specializes in Titanic memorabilia, expects the violin to fetch more than 200,000 pounds ($323,300 U.S.) when it goes on sale in southern England's Wiltshire on Saturday.

=======================================
Bring the band on down behind me, boys..

Sen. Rand Paul: Sometimes I spread misinformation. This is a great tactic.

http://freakoutnation.com/2013/10/19/se ... at-tactic/

So I am torn. Should a politician be praised for being honest about lying?

Never known the Black Peter debate to be this intense... I hope that the UN does the right thing and protect it: it's obvious our tradition is at stake.

I am sure there is no connection to the previous statement, but this is what popped into my mind:

Here is an interesting chart, based on marketing data collected by investment bank Piper Jaffray:

As you can see from the chart, interest among teenagers in Facebook has dropped precipitously, while Google+ and Pinterest appear to be doomed.

However, you should remember that three data points do not necessarily denote a trend...

Pepper-Spraying Campus Cop Awarded $38,000 For 'Psychiatric Injury'
A video of Officer John Pike pepper-spraying demonstrators at UC Davis went viral in 2011

You just never know when your job will leave you under the glare of the national spotlight. Two years ago, activists organized the Occupy movement throughout the country to call attention to growing economic inequality in the United States. The rallies resulted in broad security oversight and response. One incident in November 2011 at the University of California, Davis, became a symbol of the divide between the movement and their myriad targets. A now-famous video captured Lt. John Pike of the UC Davis campus police as he calmly pepper-sprayed nonviolent protesters after they'd sat down and refused orders to leave.

The video went viral, as did photoshopped images depicting Pike and his pepper spray in famous scenes from history and art. The demonstration by Occupy UC Davis was part of a series of protests there against tuition hikes, as well as what demonstrators felt was excessive force being used by police to break up previous rallies.

Pike was just awarded $38,000 in workers' compensation by the state university for the pain and suffering that he endured as a result of the experience. He said that he received more than 17,000 angry or threatening emails, 10,000 text messages and hundreds of letters attacking him for his conduct. The reaction caused him both depression and anxiety, he claimed, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. His award was the result of a workers' compensation claim that he filed over the summer, reported The Davis Enterprise.

The decision adds a new chapter to Pike's experience after his confrontation with the Occupy movement. He was suspended with pay from his job just after the incident, while it was being investigated, and remained on leave until his employment there ended last summer. While the campus refused to comment then about the reason, citing confidentiality, the Sacramento Bee quoted Pike as saying that he'd been terminated from his job. The paper also reported his annual salary as $110,243.12, as of 2010.

Why was he given the award? The state Division of Workers' Compensation Appeals Board said the ruling "resolves all claims of psychiatric injury specific or due to continuous trauma from applicant's employment at UC Davis." The decision, "is in line with permanent impairment as calculated by the state's disability evaluation unit," UC Davis spokesman Andy Fell told the Chronicle.

UC Davis, for its part, appears to be willing to pony up for all involved parties. The group of demonstrators were awarded $1 million, which left each with about $30,000 a piece, said The Associated Press. This latest decision "sends a clear message to the next officer nervously facing off with a group of passive, unarmed students: Go on ahead. Brutalize them. Trample their rights," a local attorney and advocate for the demonstrators, Bernie Goldsmith, told the AP.

Deejay Dave Herman held stuffed animal waiting at airport for sex with girl, 7, authorities say.

"...Some say he gave the call letters to station WPLJ, which was the name of an old rhythm and blues tune covered by Frank Zappa."
