  • A woman who was caught on video driving along a sidewalk to avoid a stopped school bus has been ordered to wear an "idiot" sign at the intersection where it happened.

    As part of the sentence, Hardin must also must wear a sign that reads, "Only an idiot would drive on the sidewalk to avoid the school bus" for an hour a day for two days next week at the intersection where the incident occurred, according to Fox 8.

    Hardin was arrested on Sept. 11 after a veteran school bus driver, Uriah Herron, noticed Hardin pull her driving stunt several times and recorded one incident with his cellphone camera.

    "We had a very conscientious driver for 30 years. He really cares about his children and he took the extra step that this doesn't happen

  • Dayton Rinard takes a ride in one of the 29 AC Cobra sports cars that visited him (ABC 15)"We've had a lot of downs," Kathleen Rinard told local Phoenix, Arizona affiliate ABC 15. "But God, this is an up. A very big up."

    Both Kathleen and her husband Dayton have been diagnosed with terminal cancer. And Dayton's final wish was to take a ride in an AC Cobra sports car.

    I've never been in one before. I wanted to since 1965," said Dayton, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

    So with just days to live, Kathleen, suffering from terminal breast cancer, put out a call, asking an owner of a Cobra car to show up at her hospice and give Dayton a ride. Instead, 29 Cobra car owners showed up, giving rides to Kathleen, Dayton and several other residents at the hospice.

    "It's going to be my last gift to give to him," Kathleen said. "He's been by my side the whole time."

    After taking his first spin in the AC Cobra, Dayton told ABC 15, "It was indescribable. It was beautiful.

    The story originally aired back in February 2012 but has been getting some attention online thanks to a recent

    Boy Comically Protests Mother's Pregnancy News

    One of the biggest events in the life of a family is the arrival of a new child. It's almost always a very big deal for the expectant mother, as well as the friends and family members around her.

    U.S. air strikes on Syria would face formidable obstacles

    By Matt Spetalnick and Phil Stewart WASHINGTON (Reuters) - American forces face formidable challenges as President Barack Obama considers an air assault on Islamist fighters in Syria, including intelligence gaps on potential targets, concerns about Syria’s air defenses and fears that the militants may have anti-aircraft weapons, current and former U.S. The Pentagon began preparing options for an assault on Islamic State fighters after the militants last week posted a gruesome video showing the beheading of American photojournalist James Foley. Deliberations by Obama’s national security team on expanding the campaign against Islamic State from Iraq into neighboring Syria gathered pace in recent days, officials say.

  • NASA says new heavy-lift rocket debut not likely until 2018

    By Irene Klotz CAPE CANAVERAL Fla. (Reuters) - NASA’s new heavy-lift rocket, designed to fly astronauts to the moon, asteroids and eventually Mars, likely will not have its debut test flight until November 2018, nearly a year later than previous estimates, agency officials said on Wednesday. NASA is 70 percent confident of making a November 2018 launch date, given the technical, financial and management hurdles the Space Launch System faces on the road to development, NASA associate administrators Robert Lightfoot and Bill Gerstenmaier told reporters on a conference call. NASA estimates it could spend almost $12 billion developing the first of three variations of the rocket and associated ground systems through the debut flight, and potentially billions more to build and fly heavier-lift next-generation boosters, a July 2014 General Accountability Office report on the program said. While the rocket might be ready for a test flight in December 2017, as previously planned, the new assessment showed the odds of that were “significantly less” than the 70 percent confidence level NASA requires of new programs, Gerstenmaier said.
