  • Police detained two CNN employees after they allegedly attempted to slip past security into the One World Trade Center site.

    The New York Post reports that the two employees, Connor Boals, 26, and Yon Pomrenze, 35, were stopped at a security gate and later charged with trespassing, obstructing governmental administration and disorderly conduct.

    A CNN spokesperson told the Post that the pair, identified by the newspaper as producers, were not on an official assignment from the network.

    “We were just made aware of this and are actively looking into it,” the spokesperson told the paper.

    The two men were taken into custody by the Port Authority Police Department shortly after 2 p.m. on Tuesday, according to CBS News. The PAPD later released mug shots of them.

    The two reportedly told police that they were attempting to make a point about lax security at the site. In recent months, there have been two high-profile incidents at the World Trade Center site. On Monday, four men surrendered to

  • A baby left sitting in his stroller on the cold streets of New York City is now safe thanks to a good Samaritan.

    Michael Allen told WPIX that he was looking out his Harlem apartment window when he spotted a stroller in an empty park. Curious and a bit concerned about what might be inside, he went down to investigate.

    Inside, Allen found a small baby boy, looking up at him with "eyes like a doe." The father of three said the baby was dressed warmly and had formula in the stroller. Temperatures that night were in the 30s.

    After discovering the baby, Allen alerted nearby firefighters who took the baby — nicknamed "Sunday" — to Harlem Hospital. The baby has since been taken into the care of the Administration for Children's Services.

    Allen visited the child on Monday with one of his own children's teddy bears, Allen told CBS New York. “He kept staring at me. His eyes were just piercing me like ‘I know it was you that got me out of this cold.'"

    An 18-year-old woman believed to be the boy's

  • Clobberhead the dog uses nose to save the day

    Newly adopted pooch smelled natural gas, wouldn't leave owner alone

    All hail Clobberhead, the gas-smelling superdog.

    Shelbyville, Ind., resident Erin Cramer has her family's newly adopted greyhound, named Clobberhead, to thank for saving her from a potentially explosive situation.

    Cramer, who picked Clobberhead up from a rescue group a few months ago, said he started acting strangely one day when she stayed home sick from work.

    He started banging his head against a wall, and when she took him outside for some air, he dragged her back inside.

    It wasn't until the dog successfully convinced Cramer to open the door to her laundry room that the danger finally hit home. It turns out there was a natural gas leak coming from the apartment's laundry room.

    "This wall of gas just came pouring out," Cramer told Fox59. Even scarier, her water heater had sprung a gas leak and, even more alarming, it was sparking.

    Cramer said that experts told her that the sparks would have likely ignited the gas fumes and "taken out not only this house but several around me."

    "If it

  • F-35 fighter jet to make first trans-Atlantic flight in July

    By Andrea Shalal WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Defense Department has approved the first trans-Atlantic flight of Lockheed Martin Corp's F-35 fighter jet in July to take part in two international air shows near London, U.S. and British officials said Wednesday. The new warplane will make its international debut at the Royal International Air Tattoo, or RIAT, an annual military air show held outside London in July, followed by appearances at the show, held every other year, said the officials. This fifth generation stealth combat aircraft will be a major boost to British combat air power and it is entirely fitting that the F-35's first stop outside the United States will be in the UK," British Defense Secretary Philip Hammond said in a statement. Lockheed is the Pentagon's No. 1 supplier.

  • Russian aircraft buzz US Navy destroyer: How big a deal?

    When Russian attack aircraft buzzed the USS Donald Cook in the international waters of the Black Sea, even as tensions in the region ratchet up, Pentagon officials decried the move as “provocative.” How big a deal are these “provocative” actions on the part of the Russian military – or were these just a couple of rogue Russian pilots out for a joy ride? During the cold war, these sorts of flybys “happened all the time,” says Christopher Harmer, a retired Navy officer who served as deputy director of future operations for the US Navy’s Fifth Fleet. In fact, these kinds of incidents happen more often than ever makes it into the press, says Mr. Harmer, now a senior naval analyst with the Institute for the Study of War in Washington.

    BlackBerry's meltdown sparks start-up boom in Canada's Silicon Valley

    By Sayantani Ghosh, Ashutosh Pandey and Euan Rocha (Reuters) - The troubles at BlackBerry Ltd, which fired more than half its staff and lost more than 90 percent of its market value as consumers shunned its smart phones, might have spelled disaster for the company's hometown of Waterloo, Ontario. More than 450 start-ups opened for business in the twin cities of Waterloo and Kitchener last year, more than four times the number begun in 2009, according to Communitech, a local company that advises them. Often, the new companies are being founded by former BlackBerry employees chasing their entrepreneurial ambitions in a community that's Canada's answer to technology hubs in California and elsewhere. "For those who are trying to get a new tech business off the ground, get it funded, and not get lost in the shadow of Silicon Valley, Waterloo can be the best place to get your company on the map," said Sean McCabe, vice-president of engineering at drone manufacturer Aeryon Labs Inc in Waterloo.

  • Mini-sub aborts again in new setback for MH370 search
    Mini-sub aborts again in new setback for MH370 search

    Perth (Australia) (AFP) - The hunt for a missing Malaysian plane suffered another setback Wednesday when a second seabed search by a mini-submarine was cut short due to "technical" troubles after the first also aborted in very deep water. Australia's Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC) issued a brief statement which spoke of an unspecified "technical issue" with the unmanned Bluefin-21 sonar device. The first mission which began Monday night aborted automatically after breaching the machine's maximum operating depth of 4,500 metres (15,000 feet). "The Autonomous Underwater Vehicle, Bluefin-21, was forced to resurface this morning to rectify a technical issue," JACC said.
