    2 killed, dozens hurt in school bus crash in Mo.

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100805/ap_on_re_us/us_school_bus_accident

    GRAY SUMMIT, Mo. – Two buses carrying high school band students to an amusement park Thursday slammed into a freeway wreck that happened right in front of them, crushing a pickup truck and killing its driver, as well as one of the students. Dozens of other students were treated for injuries.

    The wreck near Gray Summit, about 40 miles west of St. Louis, happened when the pickup truck rear-ended a semi cab that had slowed down because it was nearing a construction zone, state police said. The first bus, which was carrying female band members from John F. Hodge High in St. James, slammed into the back of the pickup, then was launched on top of it after it was rear-ended by the second bus, State Highway Patrol Cpl. Jeff Wilson said

    GRAY SUMMIT, Mo. – Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board looking into the horrific interstate crash that killed a 15-year-old girl on a school bus and the driver of another vehicle are evaluating what could be done to make school buses safer, an NTSB official said Friday.

    "We've been interested for some time in school bus safety," NTSB Vice Chairman Christopher Hart said at a news conference. "We're also interested in construction zone safety."

    From E-Male No link











    What did Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower have in common?

    Here is something that should be of great interest for you to pass around.
    I didn't know of this until it was pointed out to me.

    Back during The Great Depression, President Herbert Hoover ordered the
    deportation of ALL illegal aliens in order to make jobs available to American
    citizens that desperately needed work..

    Harry Truman deported over two million Illegal's after WWII


    to create jobs for returning veterans'.

    And then again in 1954, President Dwight Eisenhower deported 13 million
    Mexican Nationals! The program was called 'Operation Wet bak It was
    done so WWII and Korean Veterans would have a better chance at jobs.
    It took 2 Years, but they deported them!

    Now...if they could deport the illegals back then - they could sure do it today.

    lf you have doubts about the veracity of this information, enter Operation
    Wetbxxx into your favorite search engine and confirm it for yourself...



    Reminder:

    Don't forget to pay your taxes...
    22 million Illegal Aliens are depending on you!!!!

    MOSCOW – Deaths in Moscow have doubled to an average of 700 people a day as the Russian capital is engulfed by poisonous smog from wildfires and a sweltering heat wave, a top health official said Monday.

    Moscow health chief Andrei Seltsovky blamed weeks of unprecedented heat and suffocating smog for the rise in mortality compared to the same time last year, Russian news agencies reported. He said city morgues were nearly overflowing, filled with 1,300 bodies, close to their capacity

    Some Firms Struggle to Hire Despite High Unemployment

    http://finance.yahoo.com/career-wor...ms-struggle-to-hire-despite-high-unemployment

    In Bloomington, Ill., machine shop Mechanical Devices can't find the workers it needs to handle a sharp jump in business. Job fairs run by airline Emirates attract fewer applicants in the U.S. than in other countries. Truck-stop operator Pilot Flying J says job postings don't elicit many more applicants than they did when the unemployment rate was below 5%.

    20 Worst-Paying College Degrees in 2010

    http://finance.yahoo.com/college-ed...-degrees-in-2010?mod=edu-continuing_education

    If you want to avoid the worst-paying college degrees, think twice before choosing a college major that involves children

    Included among the 20 worst-paying college degrees are elementary education, special education, social work and child and family studies. That's the conclusion of the latest annual study of college degrees by Payscale, Inc. that compiled starting and mid-career pay for dozens of college majors

    Airplane F 35 Vertical Takeoff Flip

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNtU0aRu7Co

    Subject: Unintended Loop at Takeoff of new F-35.




    Read the story below before watching the video clip.
    Unintended Loop at Takeoff of new F-35...
    This pilot has Nerves of Steel, probably couldn’t do this again even if he tried! -


    The F-35 is a vertical takeoff supersonic jet for the Navy and the Marines.
    I would say there's nothing about this incident the pilot enjoys other than
    the end result.
    If he could have ejected at 100' upside down and lived, he would have.

    Looks like the afterburner kicks in while still vectored for vertical
    takeoff. DUH!
    Lockheed would call this a "software malfunction" and needs to do a little
    more "regressive testing". Good demo of power-to-weight ratio of this
    aircraft! And some unbelievable stability control.
    If he didn't come out of the loop wings-level, it probably would have been
    bad news, maybe taking some of the carrier with him!
    Flying through your own exhaust can lead to equipment malfunctions, too, but
    fortunately he avoided that.
    This is probably the most unbelievable piece of flying you will ever see in
    your life. This is how a supremely well-trained US Navy pilot with ice water
    running in his veins instead of blood, fully regains control of his $70
    million fighter jet, after a problematic vertical take-off attempt that
    would have killed you or me.
    At the top of the screen watch as the rear vertical thruster fires to cause
    the problem.

    Obama supports 'the right' for ground zero mosque

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_ground_zero_mosque_obama

    WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama says Muslims have the right to build a mosque near ground zero in New York, but he's not saying whether he thinks it's a good idea to do so.

    Obama's comment Saturday during a trip to Florida expanded on a statement he made at a White House dinner on Friday. At that event, he said Muslims have the same right to freedom of religion as everyone else in America
