    Well, based on our earlier discussion about other cultures eating all SORTS of animals, the notion of breaded dogs doesn't seem all that far-fetched, 47!

    Default "No one wants to associate their names with such evil events."

    Bomb suspect's uncle, in Mass., says he knows 'no one wants to associate ... with such evil'

    The uncle of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev arrived in Massachusetts on Sunday to arrange for his burial, saying he understands that "no one wants to associate their names with such evil events."

    Ruslan Tsarni, of Montgomery Village, Md., and three of his friends met with the Worcester funeral home director and prepared to wash and shroud Tsarnaev's body according to Muslim tradition. The 26-year-old died after a gun battle with police on April 19.

    Funeral director Peter Stefan said he hasn't been able to find a cemetery in Massachusetts willing to take the body. He said he plans to ask the city of Cambridge, where Tsarnaev lived, to provide a burial plot, and if Cambridge turns him down, he will seek help from state officials.

    Tsarni told reporters that he is arranging for Tsarnaev's burial because religion and tradition call for his nephew to be buried. He would like him buried in Massachusetts because he's lived in the state for the last decade, he said.

    "I'm dealing with logistics. A dead person must be buried," he said.

    He said he was grateful to Stefan for agreeing to arrange the burial and to his friends for accompanying him to Massachusetts to aid with the funeral.

    "These are my friends who feel for me ... as I do understand no one wants to associate their names with such evil events," he said.

    Tsarnaev, who had appeared in surveillance photos wearing a black cap and was identified as Suspect No. 1, died days after the April 15 bombing, which killed three people and injured more than 260 others. His 19-year-old brother, Dzhokhar, was captured.

    Stefan said he has received calls from people criticizing him and calling him "un-American" for being willing to handle Tamerlan Tsarnaev's funeral.

    "We take an oath to do this. Can I pick and choose? No. Can I separate the sins from the sinners? No," he said. "We are burying a dead body. That's what we do."

    A half dozen protesters gathered outside the funeral home Sunday holding signs and American flags and chanting "USA!" One sign read: "Do not bury him on U.S. soil." Several people drove by the funeral home earlier Sunday and yelled, including one man who shouted, "Throw him off a boat like Osama bin Laden!"

    The state medical examiner ruled that Tsarnaev died from gunshot wounds and blunt trauma to his head and torso, and authorities have said his brother ran him over in a chaotic getaway attempt. Stefan said Sunday that the family won't request that an independent medical examiner perform a second autopsy, but representatives from the family's legal team might photograph Tsarnaev's body before it's washed.

    Tsarni has denounced the acts his nephews are accused of committing and has said they brought shame to the family and the entire Chechen ethnicity. The brothers are ethnic Chechens from Russia who came to the United States about a decade ago with their parents. Both parents returned to Dagestan last year.

    Tsarni said Sunday that he hopes to eventually see Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who is in a prison hospital and faces a potential death sentence if convicted of the terrorism plot.

    "This is another person left all to himself," he said.

    Also on Sunday, the FBI conducted a court-authorized search in Cambridge as part of its ongoing investigation into the bombings, said Jason Pack, a supervisory special agent in the FBI's press office. He declined to elaborate further.

    Default Quarter of adults walk just an hour a week, survey finds

    This is from the UK, but I would imagine it's comparable to the US also.

    A poll for the walking charity the Ramblers suggests 25% of adults walk for no more than one hour each week.

    The YouGov survey, which polled 2,000 adults across Britain about walking habits, found another 43% reported walking for less than two hours a week.

    Government guidelines suggest people should do 150 minutes of "moderate" physical activity each week.

    The survey asked people about the total amount of walking they did, including trips to school, work or the shops.

    The Ramblers, which is promoting a "Get Walking Week" from 4-11 May, said there was already research showing that two thirds of adults in the UK took too little exercise.

    It said the survey backed that up.

    'Inactivity pandemic'

    The West Midlands was revealed as the worst region for weekly walking, with more than a third of adults (34%) walking for no more than an hour a week.

    The East Midlands came out top, with 59% of people doing enough to satisfy recommended physical activity guidelines.

    Despite the low levels of walking reported, nearly all of those surveyed - 93% - agreed walking was a good form of exercise.

    The Ramblers charity, which promotes walking for health and pleasure, wants to get people to go on walks of five miles or less. It is running free walks led by guides.

    Benedict Southworth, chief executive of the Ramblers, said: "Walking is one of the most accessible and achievable ways to truly conquer this inactivity pandemic in Britain and we need to get started now."

    Public health minister Anna Soubry, said walking was "one of the best ways to keep healthy", and that she supported the initiative.

    The British Heart Foundation (BHF) advises that moderate intensity aerobic activity is the most effective type of activity for maintaining a healthy heart.

    Aerobic activity is a repetitive rhythmic exercise involving large muscle groups such as legs, shoulders and arms.

    Moderate intensity activities should make a person feel warmer, breathe harder and make their heart beat faster than usual. But, they should still be able to have a conversation.

    The BHF also advises 150 minutes of moderate intensity aerobic activity each week.

    'Boost self-esteem'

    Dr Mike Knapton, associate medical director for the BHF, said: "Walking is the easiest and cheapest way to keep fit. You can walk anytime, anywhere and you don't need any equipment."

    Dr Stuart Biddle, professor of physical activity and health at Loughborough University, said there was long-standing evidence to support a link between walking and mental health benefits.

    Walking can elevate a person's mood, lessen feelings of depression and allow a person to think more clearly, he said.

    "If you feel you are doing something worthwhile rather than sitting around doing nothing and watching junk on the telly [walking can make] you feel a bit better about yourself and boost your self-esteem," he added.

    Dr Biddle said 30 minutes of brisk walking each day would bring substantial health benefits.

    Default Bride among five dead in US stretch limo fire

    A newlywed was among five women killed and four injured when a stretch limo turned into a fireball during a bridal party in San Francisco Bay.

    Firefighters found five badly burned passengers in the back of the vehicle, which caught light on a major bridge in the city on Saturday night.

    Bride Neriza Fojas, 31, was among those who died in the unexplained blaze, her relatives told local media.

    The male driver and four other female passengers escaped the vehicle.

    The driver was unhurt. One of the women had severe burns while the other three suffered injuries including smoke inhalation, police said.

    'Within 90 seconds'

    Two of the casualties, a 32-year-old and a 48-year-old, were in a critical condition in hospital on Monday, officials said.

    The deceased were so badly burned that medical examiners will try to identify them using dental records.

    Aerial footage showed about one-third of the back half of the limousine had been burnt out.

    It is still unclear what caused the vehicle to burst into flames on the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge at the southern end of San Francisco Bay.

    Driver Orville Brown, 46, said one of the passengers had knocked on the partition and complained of smoke in the back of the vehicle.

    But he told the San Francisco Chronicle that he initially misheard her, amid loud music from the passengers' compartment, and thought she was asking for permission to smoke.

    By the time he realised something was wrong and pulled over, "within maybe 90 seconds", the hired Lincoln Town Car was engulfed in flames, he said.

    "I just wish that I could have done more," Mr Brown told the Chronicle. "It's something you never imagine will happen."

    The women were reportedly picked up by the limo in the city of Oakland and were being driven across the bridge to Foster City.

    They had been on their way to a hotel to celebrate with the husband of the new bride, her sister told the Chronicle.

    Neriza Fojas, from Fresno, California, was planning to repeat her marriage vows in the Philippines next month, relatives told the San Jose Mercury News.

    San Mateo County Coroner Robert Foucrault was quoted by the Chronicle as saying: "This is one of the most horrific things I've seen in 21 years with this office.

    "Looking at it, they were on top of each other and doing what they could to get out."

    He said all the women were nurses.

    Limo Stop, the firm which operated the vehicle, issued a statement saying it would "do everything possible to investigate and assist authorities in determining the cause of this fire in order to bring forth answers and provide closure to victims and their families".

    The San Mateo Fire Department and police are investigating the cause of the blaze.

    The coroner said the authorities did not suspect anything criminal occurred.

    Default Bashful men can buy the little blue pill online

    TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Men who are bashful about needing help in the bedroom no longer have to go to the drugstore to buy that little blue pill.
    In a first for the drug industry, Pfizer Inc. told The Associated Press that the drugmaker will begin selling its popular erectile dysfunction pill Viagra to patients on its website.
    Men still will need a prescription to buy the blue, diamond-shaped pill on viagra.com, but they no longer have to face a pharmacist to get it filled. And for those who are bothered by Viagra's steep $25-a-pill price, Pfizer is offering three free pills with the first order and 30 percent off the second one.
    Pfizer's bold move upends the drug industry's distribution model. Drugmakers don't sell medicines directly to patients. Instead, they sell in bulk to wholesalers, who then distribute the drugs to pharmacies, hospitals and doctors' offices.
    But the world's second-largest drugmaker is trying a new strategy to tackle a problem that plagues the industry. Illegal online pharmacies increasingly offer patients counterfeit versions of Viagra and other brand-name drugs for up to 95 percent off with no prescription needed. Patients don't realize the drugs are most often fake or that legitimate pharmacies require a prescription.
    Other major drugmakers likely will watch Pfizer's move closely. If it works, drugmakers could begin selling other medicines that are rampantly counterfeited and sold online, particularly treatments for non-urgent conditions seen as embarrassing. Think diet drugs, medicines for baldness and birth control pills.
    "If it works, everybody will hop on the train," says Les Funtleyder, a health care strategist at private equity firm Poliwogg who believes Pfizer's site will attract "fence-sitters" who are nervous about buying online.
    But it won't be the end of drugstores, as pharmaceutical companies aren't allowed to fill orders for prescription drugs from individual patients. So Pfizer is having national drugstore chain CVS Caremark Corp. fill the orders placed on viagra.com.
    The online Viagra sales are Pfizer's latest effort to combat a problem that has grown with the popularity of the Internet.
    In recent years, Americans have become more comfortable with online shopping, with many even buying prescription drugs online. That's particularly true for those who don't have insurance, are bargain hunters or want to keep their medicine purchases private.
    Few realize that the vast majority of online pharmacies don't follow the rules, industry experts say.
    The Internet is filled with illegitimate, professional-looking sites that run 24-hour call centers and lure customers with spam emails. A January study by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy, which accredits online pharmacies, found that only 257 of 10,275 online pharmacy sites it examined appeared legitimate.
    That means the sites require a doctor's prescription, are based in the U.S., only sell FDA-approved drugs and have a secure server site so customers don't have their credit card and identity information stolen.
    Experts say the fake drugs such websites sell can be dangerous. That's because they don't include the right amount of the active ingredient in the medicine, if any, or they contain toxic substances such as heavy metals, lead paint and printer ink. They're generally made in filthy warehouses and garages in Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America.
    Online buyers are "playing Russian roulette," says Matthew Bassiur, vice president of global security at New York-based Pfizer.
    "The factories are deplorable. I've seen photographs of these places," he says. "You wouldn't even want to walk in them, let alone ingest anything made in them."
    Pfizer is among many drugmakers that have long been aggressive in fighting counterfeiters. Pfizer conducts undercover investigations and works with authorities around the globe to combat the problem.
    Counterfeit versions of Viagra and dozens of other Pfizer medicines rob the company of billions in annual sales.
    Viagra is one of Pfizer's top drugs, with $2 billion in worldwide revenue last year. And it's the most counterfeited drug in the U.S., according to the company.
    A 2011 study, in which Pfizer bought "Viagra" from 22 popular Internet pharmacies and tested the pills, found 77 percent were counterfeit. Most had half or less of the promised level of the active ingredient.
    Viagra is appealing to counterfeiters because it carries a double whammy: It's expensive and it treats a condition with an "embarrassment" factor.
    Crooks running the illegal online pharmacies brazenly explain their ultra-low Viagra prices — often $1 to $3 a pill — by claiming they sell generic Viagra.
    Generics are copycat versions of brand-name prescription drugs. They can't be sold legally until after a drugmaker's patent, or exclusive right to sell a drug, ends. Generic drugmakers don't have to spend $1 billion or so on testing to get a new drug approved, so their copycat versions often cost up to 90 percent less than the original drug.
    But there is no such thing as generic Viagra in the U.S. Pfizer has patents giving it the exclusive right to sell Viagra here until 2020 and for many years in other countries.
    Many patients are unaware of that.
    Dr. David Dershewitz, an assistant urology professor at New Jersey Medical School who treats patients at Newark's University Hospital, says erectile dysfunction is common in men with enlarged prostates, diabetes and other conditions, but most men are too embarrassed to discuss it.
    He says well over half of his patients who do broach the issue complain about Viagra's price. Some tell Dershewitz that they go online looking for bargains because they can't afford Viagra.
    "The few that do admit to it have said that the results have been fairly dismal," but none has suffered serious harm, he says.
    For Pfizer, that's a big problem. People who buy fake drugs online that don't work, or worse, harm them, may blame the company's product. That's because it's virtually impossible to distinguish fakes from real Viagra.
    "The vast majority of patients do believe that they're getting Viagra," says Vic Cavelli, head of marketing for primary care medicines at Pfizer.
    The sales lost to counterfeits threaten Pfizer at a time when Viagra already is losing is dominance in the market.
    Pfizer invented the term "erectile dysfunction" to replace the less-palatable medical term "impotence" after it came up with the first drug for the condition. It was a lucky find. Pfizer was testing an experimental blood pressure drug when older men in the study started telling research staff about an unexpected but welcomed side effect: better erections.
    Pfizer quickly developed Viagra and made the discussion about erectile dysfunction mainstream with ads featuring ex-Sen. Bob Dole and other public figures.
    But Viagra's share of the $5 billion-a-year global market for legitimate erectile dysfunction drugs has slipped, falling from 46 percent in 2007 to 37 percent last year, according to health data firm IMS Health.
    The reason? Competition from rival products, mainly Eli Lilly and Co.'s Cialis — the pill touted in those ubiquitous commercials featuring couples in his-and-hers bathtubs in bizarre places.
    Judson Clark, an Edward Jones analyst, forecasts that Viagra sales will decline even further, about 5 percent each year for the next five years, unusual "for a drug in its prime."
    Clark says he thinks Pfizer's strategy will prevent sales from declining, but he's unsure how well it will work.
    "It's a very interesting and novel approach," he says. "Whether it returns Viagra to growth is hard to say."

    Default Lay's Cheesy Garlic Bread Potato Chips Wins 'Do Us A Flavor' Contest

    Librarian wins at least $1M in Lay's chip promo

    (NEW YORK) Lay's potato chips are getting cheesier.

    Fans voted to keep the potato chip maker's Cheesy Garlic Bread flavor on store shelves for at least the end of the year as part of the company's nearly year-long "Do Us a Flavor" promotion.

    Cheesy Garlic Bread beat out two other fan-submitted flavors: a maple-syrup tasting Chicken & Waffles and Sriracha, which tastes like the hot sauce often used in Thai dishes.

    The campaign is the latest promotional stunt from companies trying to engage customers through social media and direct interaction. Toy maker Hasbro Inc. recently held a Monopoly contest that ended with the addition of a cat game token and the demise of the iron for the classic board game. Online retailer Amazon.com Inc. is asking people to watch show pilots on its streaming video service and vote for which one to turn into a full series.

    Karen Weber-Mendham, a children's librarian from Land O'Lakes, Wis., submitted the Cheesy Garlic Bread flavor and will receive $1 million or 1 percent of sales, whichever is higher. (The company said it hasn't tallied sales numbers yet.) The creators of the Chicken & Waffles and Sriracha chips will be awarded $50,000 each.

    Weber-Mendham came up with the flavor because her three kids love to order cheesy garlic bread at Italian restaurants. Earlier this year she traveled to Frito-Lay's Plano, Texas, headquarters to taste the chips. Frito-Lay is a unit of PepsiCo Inc.

    "I was actually shocked at how good the chips came out," Weber-Mendham, 45, said in an interview after she was named the winner late Monday in Los Angeles.

    Lay's kicked off its "Do us a Flavor" campaign last summer, calling for potato chip lovers to come up with creative flavors. A panel of chefs and flavor experts looked through about 3.8 million submissions and selected the three finalists earlier this year.

    The flavors have been on store shelves since February. Customers were asked to taste them and vote for their favorite on Facebook and Twitter. Over a million votes were submitted, according to Lay's.

    Cheesy Garlic Bread flavor is expected to stay in stores at least until the end of the year. If the flavor sells well, Lay's will continue selling it, said Ram Krishnan, Frito-Lay's vice president of marketing.

    The Chicken & Waffle and Sriracha flavors will remain in stores for the summer, partly because they were so hard to find during the contest, Krishnan said.

    Demand for the three finalist flavors was larger than the company expected. People turned to the Lay's Facebook page to say they couldn't find the flavors. Krishnan said that the company had to double its shipments to stores to meet demand.

    Even Weber-Mendham couldn't find the chips. She frequently visited the three supermarkets with a camera in hand, hoping to find a bag. "They were always gone," she said.

    Jeremy Troxell was able to find one bag of Lay's Cheesy Garlic Bread at a Wal-Mart in El Paso, Texas, where he lives. The 27-year-old Web designer looked in stores all over the city for more, and asked friends if they saw them.

    Troxell doesn't even like to buy potato chips. He usually grabs healthier snacks, such as pita chips.

    "I would have purchased the other ones if I found them," Troxell said. "They're flavors you never think of. It's kind of a novelty thing."

    Default Sun's blood pressure benefits 'may outdo cancer risks'

    The health benefits of exposing skin to sunlight may far outweigh the risk of developing skin cancer, according to scientists.

    Edinburgh University research suggests sunlight helps reduce blood pressure, cutting heart attack and stroke risks and even prolonging life.

    UV rays were found to release a compound that lowers blood pressure.

    Researchers said more studies would be carried out to determine if it is time to reconsider advice on skin exposure.

    Heart disease and stroke linked to high blood pressure are estimated to lead to about 80 times more deaths than those from skin cancer in the UK.

    Researchers said that until now vitamin D production had been considered the sole benefit of the sun to human health.

    During the research, dermatologists studied the blood pressure of 24 volunteers under UV and heat lamps.

    In one session, the volunteers were exposed to both UV rays and the heat of the lamps.

    In the other, the UV rays were blocked so that only the heat affected the skin.

    The results showed that blood pressure dropped significantly for an hour after exposure to UV rays, but not after the heat-only sessions.

    Scientists said that this suggested it was the sun's UV rays that brought health benefits.

    The volunteers' vitamin D levels remained unaffected in both sessions.

    'Reconsider our advice'

    Dr Richard Weller, a senior lecturer in dermatology at Edinburgh University, said: "We suspect that the benefits to heart health of sunlight will outweigh the risk of skin cancer.

    "The work we have done provides a mechanism that might account for this, and also explains why dietary vitamin D supplements alone will not be able to compensate for lack of sunlight.

    "We now plan to look at the relative risks of heart disease and skin cancer in people who have received different amounts of sun exposure.

    "If this confirms that sunlight reduces the death rate from all causes, we will need to reconsider our advice on sun exposure."

    The study will be presented on Friday in Edinburgh at the world's largest gathering of skin experts. The International Investigative Dermatology conference starts on Wednesday and runs until Saturday.

    Default Ancient bone-headed dinosaur found



    Scientists have unveiled a new species of bone-headed dinosaur, which they say is the oldest in North America, and possibly the world.

    The dog-sized plant-eater had a dome-shaped skull that may have been used to head-butt other dinosaurs.

    University of Toronto researchers say the new species, revealed in the journal Nature Communications, fills in gaps in the dinosaur family tree.

    They believe more small dinosaurs like Acrotholus audeti await discovery.

    Bone-headed dinosaurs, or thick-headed lizards, are known scientifically as pachycephalosaurs.

    They are a strange group of herbivorous dinosaurs which possessed a thick-boned dome on the top of their skulls.

    The dome may have been used for decoration or to head-butt other dinosaurs in combat.

    The new find, Acrotholus, dates back to 85 million years ago.

    It was about the size of a large dog, weighed about 40kg (88lb), walked on two legs, and had a skull composed of solid bone over 10cm (4 inches) thick.

    Dr David Evans of the Royal Ontario Museum and University of Toronto said the fossil provides a wealth of new information on the evolution of bone-headed dinosaurs.

    He told BBC News: "What's interesting about Acrotholus is that it's the oldest known pachycephalosaur from North America, and it might be the oldest known pachycephalosaur in the world.

    "So what Acrotholus does is it extends our knowledge of the anatomy of this group early in their evolution - and it's actually important for understanding the evolution of pachycephalosaurs in general."
    The fossils were unearthed in Alberta, Canada The discovery is based on two skull caps unearthed from rocks known as the Milk River formation in southern Alberta

    Relatively little is known about the diversity of small dinosaurs weighing less than 100kg (220lb), as they are under represented in the fossil record.

    There has been scientific debate over whether the fossil record is a true reflection of the diversity of small dinosaurs or whether their more delicate bones are less likely to have been preserved compared with their larger cousins.

    The Canadian study predicts the latter, suggesting there may be more discoveries of small bodied dinosaur fossils in the future.

    "We can predict that many new small dinosaur species like Acrotholus are waiting to be discovered by researchers willing to sort through the many small bones that they pick up in the field," said co-researcher Dr Michael Ryan, curator of vertebrate palaeontology at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.

    Default Nancy Grace and Ashleigh Banfield Hold Split-Screen Interview in Same Parking Lot

    This is NOT from The Onion, although it reads like an Onion headline.

    So silly. I can't stand Nancy Grace, but she is sitting in front of a green screen while the other is out side. They are both in Phoenix though.

    Default Metal singer Tim Lambesis arrested over murder plot



    The singer of Grammy-nominated US heavy metal band As I Lay Dying has been arrested on suspicion of attempting to plot the murder of his estranged wife.

    Police in California said Tim Lambesis, 32, had tried to hire an undercover detective to kill his wife Meggan.

    "The information came to us late last week. We acted quickly on it. I believe that we averted a great tragedy," said a police spokesperson.

    Lambesis was arrested "without incident" in San Diego on 7 May.

    The singer's wife filed for dissolution of marriage last September, according to San Diego Superior Court documents.

    The couple adopted three children from Ethiopia together in recent years before separating.

    As I Lay Dying, who formed in San Diego in 2000, have sold more than a million albums through the Metal Blade record label.

    Their 2007 album An Ocean Between Us reached number eight in the US album chart and featured the Grammy-nominated track Nothing Left.

    Last year, the band - who take their name from a 1930 novel by William Faulkner - released their sixth album, Awakened.

    According to the band's website, they are scheduled to tour the US with several other metal acts later this month.
