    A $100,000 reward was announced Friday for a priceless 300-year-old Stradivarius violin that was stolen in an armed robbery this week. Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra concertmaster Frank Almond was attacked with a stun gun Monday and robbed of the violin, which has been on indefinite loan to him from its anonymous owners since 2008, a common practice in the music world. The reward will be offered to anyone who can provide information that results in the safe return of the stolen violin. Officials declined to disclose Friday who, or what organization, is financing the reward. Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn said...

    U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today introduced legislation to require the Secretary of State to offer a reward of up to $5 million for information on the Benghazi attacks or information that leads to the capture and prosecution of a suspect.

"This legislation enables the Secretary of State to offer a substantial reward for information leading to the apprehension and prosecution of the...

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The attorney for a Big Bear-area camp ranger whose truck was carjacked by Christopher Dorner is expected to file an injunction Friday to prevent a $1.2 million reward from being distributed. Rick Heltebrake claims his 911 call on Feb. 12 led authorities to Dorner’s whereabouts before the quadruple-murder suspect ultimately barricaded himself inside a cabin and took his own life. “I believe it was my call that directly led the end of the largest manhunt in California history,” Heltebrake said. The Los Angeles Police Department announced Tuesday that three parties, excluding, Heltebrake, will split the reward...

In a document posted online, the department said a three-judge panel decided 80 percent of the money will go to Jim and Karen Reynolds, the couple who managed to call 911 after they were tied up by Dorner at their Big Bear condo. Fifteen percent of the reward will go to ski resort employee Daniel McGowan, who found Dorner’s burned-out pickup truck on the side of a remote Big Bear Lake road,...

    For more than a year, New York state has maintained a tip line allowing people to report illegal gun owners and collect a $500 reward. CBS-6 news reported the existence of the tip line on Wednesday. It was previously a “well-kept secret” that received little promotion from state officials or fanfare in the media, according to the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association. A February 2012 press release from Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s office first publicly announced the tip line, saying it was designed to “encourage citizens to report illegal firearm possession.”

The maid that surprised Dorner and told the police where he had been hiding was instrumental in ending the manhunt. However, the report said that the reward would be for information leading to the "arrest and conviction" of Dorner. It was always highly doubtful that Dorner would ever be convicted, because it was highly doubtful that Dorner would ever be captured alive. Will the unnamed maid who escaped...

After Politico first reported a story last week of allegation of sexual harassment from Herman Cain by two women, then continued on to report and even promote the report with 90 Cain stories in five days, the notion of innocent until proven guilty has been voided according to conservative radio show host Rush Limbaugh. However, on his Friday radio program Limbaugh proposed using Politico’s rules against Politico by getting a conservative “Larry Flynt,” the publisher of Hustler magazine that offers money for sexual misconduct by Republicans, to do the same against the media,...

    We all bristle at people who put themselves ahead of the common good, whether it is by evading taxes, shirking military service, cheating on bus fares or littering. Many of us will go out of our way to shame, shun or otherwise punish them, researchers have shown. That's how we foster a community that benefits everyone, even at some cost to ourselves. Economists analyzing ingredients of the social glue that holds us all together wonder whether that public spirit of rebuke and reward is an innate human value or a byproduct of the particular society in which we live. Until...

    Last week, this blog stood in solidarity with Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard and the rest of the newspapers in Denmark who reprinted his cartoon after police uncovered a conspiracy by radical Islamists to murder him. Now Westergaard has gained a reward for his courage in confronting radical Islam and demanding freedom of speech -- homelessness. Der Spiegel tells the story: Draw a picture offensive to Muslim extremists, and you might find yourself without a roof. Ask Kurt Westergaard, one of the twelve Danish cartoonists whose autumn 2005 Muhammad caricatures lead to violent protests throughout the Muslim world. He was booted...

    Arson investigators homed in today on two spots where the 25,000-acre Santiago Canyon fire was set, changing their theory that the blaze was ignited in three areas. A liquid was used to light the fire along Santiago Canyon Road in two separate points. The fluid flowed along a channel to a third location, giving the appearance that there were three ignition spots. At a news conference today, federal and local investigators said they had recovered evidence from the V-shaped canyon hollow where the fire started and had interviewed more than one person in the investigation, but had no suspects. They...

    MANILA, Philippines - The U.S. ambassador to the Philippines handed over a $10 million reward Thursday to four Filipino informants whose tip led to the killing of the country's two top terror suspects, the U.S. Embassy said. It was the largest reward given so far by Washington in a campaign to wipe out al-Qaida-linked militants in the southern Philippines, where the U.S. military has been training and advising Filipino troops. The U.S. promised a reward of up to $5 million each for Abu Sayyaf chieftain Khadaffy Janjalani, who was slain in a September clash on southern Jolo island, and his...

    DAMASCUS, Syria - As the U.S. debates whether to reach out to Syria for help in calming Iraq, some close to the Syrian regime say the country would be willing to help, but only if it got something valuable in return. Syria certainly is interested in political dialogue with the West and wants talks with Washington, many here say. But the regime of President Bashar Assad will want, in return, help on issues it cares deeply about — such as a return of the Golan Heights, the strategic plateau Israel captured in the 1967 Mideast War. The regime itself has...

    $7,300. That is approximately what each household in California will be asked to cough up to pay for the $42.6 billion bond package on the ballot November 7th, should it pass. While there is a clear consensus that our infrastructure is in desperate need of repair and expansion there is also a growing cynicism that saddling future generations with $84 billion in bond payments over the next 30 years represents more of the same fiscal irresponsibility we have come to expect from Sacramento. Despite tens of millions of dollars in campaign spending to support these measures, a hearty array of...

    BEAUMONT, Calif. (AP) -- As flames roared through the canyons of Southern California, authorities increased the reward to $500,000 Friday for the arrest of the arsonist responsible for the deaths of four firefighters in the nation's worst such tragedy in five years. A fifth firefighter lay in grave condition with burns over 90 percent of his body. Firefighters labored through thick smoke as curtains of wind-whipped orange flame pushed through uninhabited brushland about 90 miles east of Los Angeles. The blaze that broke out Thursday destroyed about 10 structures, including homes, forced 700 people to flee, and flushed coyotes and...

Such systems will look at, say, the last 10 books, movies or songs a customer has rated highly and try to extrapolate an 11th. Computer...
