  • Isabel Lucas might make audiences forget Megan Fox in the new 'Transformers'

    When "Transformers" hit the big screen in 2007, audiences knew to expect a turbocharged bunch of feuding robots, backed by an arsenal of CGI wizardry. What they also got was the impossibly hourglass-shaped Megan Fox bending over the engine of hero Sam Witwicky's bumblebee-yellow Camaro. The mechanically savvy Mikaela still holds the crown as every robotics nerd's dream date. But starting today, she better watch out. In "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," she faces competition that comes with sweeter weaponry than the average Decepticon. Australian hottie Isabel Lucas joins the franchise as Alice, an alluring classmate Sam (Shia LaBeouf)...

    The actions of Pima County Legal Defender Isabel Garcia at a protest last month against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio are "under review" after top county officials were flooded with complaints. Garcia, who is active with the immigrant rights group Derechos Humanos, participated in a protest at a signing event at a Barnes & Noble bookstore promoting a book by Arpaio, who has a national reputation for anti-illegal-immigrant raids and tough jail conditions. Videos posted on YouTube show Garcia picking up the head of a piñata representing Arpaio after several teenagers smashed it, and carrying around the head. Photo:...

  • Flooded Artifacts Will be Back by '07 [Jamestown artifacts lost during Isabel]

    JAMES CITY -- Despite a staggering estimate of $11.4 million in damages, Colonial National Historical Park representatives insist that artifacts flooded in the Historic Jamestowne Visitor Center by Hurricane Isabel will be restored and ready when a new collections building opens by 2007. Let's hope so, because Congress is watching. “I'm going to be anxiously waiting to see what they find,” Rep. Jo Ann Davis (R-1st) said this week, referring to a National Park Service investigation into the flooding. “I'm hoping we didn't do anything wrong, and we can learn from it if we were to have another disaster.” Elaine...

    Mr D'Agata received a rare and special -- albeit mysterious -- gift on his porch from what was Hurricane Isabel Friday. About 10 a.m. he was sitting on his porch reading a newspaper when he heard a sudden burst. "I thought it was hail and I said to my wife, ‘Ginger, it’s hailing,’" he said. "I went back to reading my paper and then I saw the things were still there and were not melting. I went out and saw hundred of these white things." The ‘things’ appeared to be eggs of some sort, the size of a pearl, he...

    WHITE HOUSE LETTER President Bush spends hours each day of his Texas vacation with his trusty chain saw, happily cutting up the cedar trees that he is determined to clear one of these decades from his 1,600-acre ranch. Clearly, putting in time with the saw is recreation for Mr. Bush, a sweat-through-the-T-shirt kind of guy activity that clears his head and helps him relax. Because when it came to clearing the North Lawn of the White House last week of a big linden tree felled by Hurricane Isabel, Mr. Bush left the chain-sawing to the National Park Service and stayed...

    As the tattered remains of Hurricane Isabel blew off over Canada last week, the once formidable Category 5 storm left in its wake not only flooded streets, downed power lines and grieving families but also a sense of rising menace. That's because a growing number of scientists believe that conditions favorable for brewing more and even bigger hurricanes in the Atlantic locked into place about eight years ago and will probably persist for at least a decade and maybe longer. "We're not talking about a minor little increase," says Stanley Goldenberg, a hurricane expert with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric...

Isabel was blamed for at least two traffic deaths and the electrocution of a utility employee. The storm that had once threatened 160 mph winds and a 12-foot storm surge rolled in around midday just south of isolated Ocracoke Island with a 5-foot surge and gusts that rattled plywood boards spray-painted "Bring...

    Before the game, the Orioles announced that Thursday's series finale has been moved up from 7:05 p.m. to 12:35 p.m. in hopes of getting the game in and allowing the Yankees to catch their flight to Tampa Bay afterward. The announcement came only 12 hours after a team spokesman insisted there was no chance it would be changed. No doubt the decision also had to do with the bottom line: If the game is played Thursday, the Orioles get to keep the gate, but if the game is postponed, it will be made up next weekend at Yankee Stadium, with...

    Sept. 17 (Bloomberg) -- More than 200 miles out in the Atlantic Ocean, a floating data platform directly in the path of Hurricane Isabel is secured to the seabed by a 4-ton anchor. The unmanned station, known as Buoy 41002, gathers weather information for forecasters, mariners and scientists. It also has its own unique Internet address. The National Data Buoy Center operates 79 data buoys scattered in the oceans, gulfs and seas that ring the U.S., and all of them send hourly updates to the Internet.

    For the hurricane/weather geeks out there. The closest data buoy to Isabel is #41002, which is 250nm east of Charleston, SC. Right now, the hurricane is 297nm to the SSE of the buoy. As far as I can tell, the Isabel will pass to the east of this buoy. Still, you should be able to get a very good idea of the actual strength of Isabel for the next 12 hrs.

    Hurricane Isabel is falling apart and fast. Re-Con planes have been flying in the storm since midnight and the entire west quad of the storm has disappeared. The eastern portion of the storm has a wind around 110KTS. There is discussion that re-strengthening will occour within 24 hours though so this still remains a threat. Pressure has dramatically risen as well. Discussion currently is Isabel making landfall in either Northern South Carolina or Southern North Carolina and a due north move after landfall. Thinking is a landfalling Category 2 minimal 3 storm.
