PHOENIX â€” Womenâ€™s soccer players from the University of Evansville had planned to travel to Arizona for a teammateâ€™s funeral. Now theyâ€™re dealing with a full gamut of emotions after receiving word that sheâ€™s alive.

Toyota announces a gut-wrenching innovation: Crash test dummies with intestines. I remember the unappetizing times when crash tests were performed with (dead) pigs, or, even more gross, with human corpses (not for public consumption.) The crash test dummy changed all this. No species developed faster than the anthropomorphic test device, a.k.a. the crash test dummy. Now, it made a big leap forward.
From crude beginnings in the 70s, more and more sophisticated dummies evolved. The dummy had a wife. The dummies had children. Following generations progressed rapidly. As crashes were more and more computer simulated, computer simulated crash test dummies begun to populate the virtual world. Continue reading “Toyota Invents Crash Test Dummy With Guts” »

NORTH PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Firefighters had to use heavy metal-cutting equipment to extricate a man from a car in front of 159 Urban Ave. Wednesday night after a bizarre incident that neighbors said began when he flew into a rage over someone taking his parking spot.
Before the incident was over, the man smashed his vehicle into at least four parked cars and, according to neighbors, tried to run them over and used a crow bar to smash a kitchen window. It ended when, in the process of hitting another car, his own vehicle tipped over, trapping him inside.
Battalion Chief Gerald Capaldi said the man, who was not immediately identified, was unconscious when rescuers arrived at the scene around 9:15 p.m. He said the man appeared to be the only one injured in the car smashing spree, which ended with his being transported to the trauma unit at Rhode Island Hospital.
