I've collected some nice old copper pieces on thrift-store forays; most of them aren't used often, but look lovely hanging in the kitchen - my favorites are a set of copper mixing bowls. Usually when I find these items, they have spots of tarnish or are completely tarnished. Here is the best recipe for copper cleaner that I've found: Copper Cleaner 1/4 Cup White Vinegar 1/8 Cup...

We know this because of the recent experiences of children’s author Anthony Horowitz, who briefly committed heresy over the weekend when he dared to suggest that Elba was perhaps too “street” to play a suave, Eton-educated, Senior-Service-trained, half-Swiss, half-Scots secret agent.

    The day that Steve Jobs prophesied back in 2010 in one of his most famous screeds is finally upon us -- the death of Adobe's Flash web format. Beloved by advertisers, hated by users, security experts and pretty much everyone else, Flash is still all too common, especially on media sites. One survey found 90% of all so-called rich media ads -- the ones with videos or other moving elements -- relied on Flash in the first quarter. But starting today, Google's Chrome, the browser of choice for a majority of desktop users, will be effectively cutting off Flash advertising...

Gliniewicz was found about 50 yards from his squad car in a wooded and swampy area, Filenko told reporters outside the Fox Lake Police Department, where blue and black bunting had been hung. Filenko said Gliniewicz was not dispatched to the area but "self-responded." The report of two white males and one black male was provided by Gliniewicz to dispatchers when he spotted...

Boys playing sports trump any kind of property rights (hitting vehicles and houses, breaking windows, tearing up people's lawns). And don't you dare say anything to the parent as their response is, "Our kids need to get out of the house away from video games and play sports." While I agree with that argument, they don't have to tear up people's property. Last night, I went to the father of a boy who hit...

    A cache of Atari game cartridges dug up in a New Mexico landfill last year has generated more than $100,000 in sales over the last several months. The April 2014 dig ended speculation surrounding an urban legend and proved it to be true that Atari discarded hundreds of games, including E.T. The Extraterrestrial, more than 30 years ago. In addition to the E.T. cartridges, Joseph Lewandowski found more than 60 other titles including Asteroids, Missile Command, Warlords, Star Raiders, Swordquest, Centipede and Super Breakout.

    A recently discovered group of malware that infects jailbroken iPhones has gathered the login information for more than 225,000 Apple accounts, and is believed to be one of the largest breaches of Apple accounts ever. The malware, dubbed KeyRaider by its discoverer, found its way to victims via websites that hosted repositories of Cydia software. Cydia is an app that allows users of jailbroken iOS devices to access software and apps locked phones can’t normally access. The malware then steals Apple account information by intercepting iTunes traffic from the device. Palo Alto Networks (PAN) and WeipTech, which found the vulnerability,...

    Comcast has slowly but surely been expanding the company's usage cap trials since around 2012, largely focusing them on less competitive markets where annoyed users can't vote with their wallets. In these seventeen (and counting) trial markets, Comcast broadband customers face a monthly usage cap of 300 gigabytes. After that, users need to shell out $10 for each additional 50 gigabytes of data consumed. The trials have expanded slowly but surely in the hopes of minimizing user backlash. Basically, Comcast is the hot water slowly coming to a boil, and you're the frog. It appears that Comcast has now added...

The celebrity presidential hopeful is increasing his lead over the rest of the GOP pack — and he’s doing it with the support of his party’s most extreme members, a new national survey released Tuesday shows. Fully 61% of self-identified supporters of Trump, who famously demanded to see Obama’s birth certificate as proof he was born in Hawaii, said they believed the President was not born in the U.S. Only 21% in the Public Policy Polling study said Obama was born in...

    A federal judge granted class-action status on Tuesday to a lawsuit that questions the employment classification of Uber drivers, paving the way for a legal challenge that could strike at the heart of the ride-hailing company’s business model. The ruling will allow a jury to decide whether some Uber drivers should be considered employees or 1099 contract workers, named after a tax designation, which does not require the company to pay payroll taxes or apply minimum wage and overtime laws to the drivers. In some states, the 1099 classification also exempts Uber from paying for things like health insurance or...

    A recent study that was conducted by the University of Chicago’s Crime Lab has learned that Chicago criminals do not acquire their guns from gun shops, gun shows or the internet. The study examined and interviewed inmates in Chicago’s Cook County Jail who are either facing current gun charges, or have a background consisting of firearms related convictions. The study learned that virtually zero criminals have ever used the internet or gun shows, because that method is easily traceable. It’s much safer for a criminal to acquire firearms on the streets where they’re harder to keep track of, and that’s...

The number of U.S. residents who are struggling to survive on just $2 a day has more than doubled since 1996, placing 1.5 million households and 3 million children in this desperate economic situation. That's according to "$2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America," a book from publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt that will be released on Sept. 1. The measure of poverty isn't arbitrary -- it's the threshold the World Bank uses to measure global poverty in the developed world. While it may be the...

Nancy Argentino died on May 10, 1983, and Snuka was the only person of interest at the time, yet he was never charged. The case was reopened last year after a new autopsy report emerged, The Morning Call reported last year, and it was labeled a homicide.

    You can earn $13,000 a year by donating your poop. A few months back, we wrote about OpenBiome, a company that provides therapeutic fecal matter. In case you missed that post, here's the general idea: For people with a devastating (and sometimes fatal) infection called C. difficile, a fecal matter transplant (FMT) can be a real life-saver. By putting healthy fecal matter into the patient (by way of oral tablets or colonoscopy), doctors can effectively seed their guts with the healthy bacteria they need to fight off the infection. For people who've failed to thrive on traditional treatments like antibiotics,...

    A majority of Republican voters, 54 percent, think that President Obama is a Muslim, according to a new survey from the left-leaning Public Policy Polling (PPP). Asked whether they thought Obama is a Christian or Muslim or if they were unsure, 32 percent said they were unsure. Fourteen percent said he was a Christian. Many right-leaning voters have been deeply skeptical about Obama's faith since before he became president. The topic arose again prominently in 2012, when Obama faced former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, a devout Mormon, in the general election. Obama rarely invokes his own faith in speeches and...
