New York City has over 6,000 miles of streets across five boroughs. William Helmreich and Matt Green plan to walk every last block. Though they are doing the same thing, Helmreich and Green have vastly different approaches and reasons for embarking on the journey. In this video, the two men meet for the first time and discuss their philosophies on walking. They ultimately question how—and if—New Yorkers can truly know their city.
Trump calls Perry stupid so Perry challenges Trump to a pull up contest. Gonna have to side with Trump on this one:
AUSTIN (KXAN) — Former Texas Governor Rick Perry challenged Donald Trump to a pull-up contest in response to Trump questioning Perry’s brain power.
One of Perry’s GOP rivals, Donald Trump, added fuel to the war of words between him and Perry July 29. After Perry’s speech in New York City’s financial district a reporter asked Perry if he had any comments on Trump saying that he does not belong on the debate stage; questioning his energy, toughness, and brain power to run a successful campaign.
Perry smiled and said if Trump was standing in his presence making those comments he would “get out a pull up bar and see who can do the most pull-ups.” This response produced a lot of laughter from the audience.
One of the harshest critics of Trump, Perry has called for the real estate mogul to drop out the race.
From The Daily News:
A company dedicated to recouping the valuables on a ship that sank almost 300 years ago after departing Havana made one of the biggest finds so far — recouping more than $1 million worth of gold coins and chains.
Queens Jewels LLC has had the salvaging rights to the 1715 Fleet, a group of Spanish ships that were shipwrecked off the Florida coast on July 31, 1715, since 2010. Since the ship was discovered about 50 years ago divers have discovered about $50 million worth of treasure onboard the ship.
Queens Jewels owner Brent Brisben told the Daily News this discovery, which includes 51 coins and 40 feet of gold chains, is of the biggest single hauls taken from the ship.
WTF? They’re trying to charge the kids with something but the cop shooting at them is not even being investigated?
SPARTA, NJ – Three young adults were arrested in the early hours of Saturday morning after mistakenly knocking on the door of a New Jersey State Trooper and fleeing the scene.
Early Saturday morning Sparta Police and the New Jersey State Police were involved in a search for one of the men in the area of West Mountain Road. According to people close to the investigation, three young adults, after leaving a graduation party, attempted to go to a friend’s house nearby.
A source said, they mistakenly went to the next door neighbor’s home. After repeatedly ringing the doorbell and loudly knocking on the door, the homeowner, a state trooper, came to the door. When he opened the door and shouted at them, the three men ran away.
The three got into a vehicle and the officer fired three gun shots as they attempted to flee. The car became disabled approximately one half mile from the original scene. Two of the men were apprehended at the vehicle. The third, Matthew Mayer fled, according to local sources.
A neighbor said she was awoken to the “pop, pop, pop” of the gunshots.
A large search began, according to residents of several of the West Mountain Road neighborhoods. The state police dispatched a helicopter “which searched with a bright spotlight,” according to an area resident. Search teams combed the area on foot, with canine units and in patrol vehicles. One homeowner said their home and property were searched, another said the police officers came to their home and questioned them about Mayer. It is not clear if there were any other homes searched in relation to this investigation.
The two men, John Baker-Marasco, and Jesse Farcorn, were taken to the Netcong Trooper Barracks for questioning and processing.
It actually looks pretty decent. I’ve been nursing an ancient machine that came with Windows 7 installed and have refused to upgrade because I really hated Windows 8 but I may finally give in now.
