    Scared man who sued over 'haunted house' loses in court People who go to "haunted house" attractions to be scared shouldn't be surprised when they're scared, a state court of appeals has ruled. A state appeals court has given precedent-setting status to a ruling that gave the scary mansions the same legal status as ski lodges, bumper cars and other commercial recreational facilities: They're not responsible for injuries caused by an "inherent risk" of the activity. In this case, the court said, that risk was the terror Scott Griffin experienced after leaving what he thought was the exit gate of...

    Man Pleads Guilty to Stealing Human Brains from Medical Museum A 23-year-old Indiana man pleaded guilty on Wednesday to breaking into a medical museum and stealing preserved human brains and other tissue that he then sold online, authorities said. David Charles, of Indianapolis, pleaded guilty to six charges including receiving stolen property, and burglary in a Marion County court where Magistrate Amy Barbar sentenced him to one year of home detention and two years of probation, county prosecutor spokesman Anthony Deer said. Charles on multiple occasions broke into the Indiana Medical History Museum to steal jars of brains and other...

    While Trump and other GOP presidential candidates push for a giant wall between the United States and Mexico, San Diego is literally building a bridge. In December, an international group of developers, which includes real estate magnate Sam Zell, plans to open a pedestrian walkway that bypasses the regular U.S. border crossings and directly connects San Diego to Tijuanas international airport. Meanwhile, all five members of San Diegos congressional delegation, including stalwart Republican Reps. Darrell Issa and Duncan Hunter, have successfully advocated for the $500 million in additional funds needed to expand the main border crossing. And the citys...

    Most colleges and universities are quick to push for expanded student aid from taxpayers but forget that age-old maxim: charity begins at home. “Last year, Yale paid about $480 million to private equity fund managers as compensation — about $137 million in annual management fees, and another $343 million in performance fees, also known as carried interest — to manage about $8 billion, one-third of Yale’s endowment,” Victor Fleischer wrote in the New York Times in August. “In contrast, of the $1 billion the endowment contributed to the university’s operating budget, only $170 million was earmarked for tuition assistance, fellowships...

At this point yes, because there's no sign that the other team or teams are not going to file, said Fabiani, who serves as the Chargers special counsel. Everyone assumes all three teams will file, and in that case we can't afford to lose our market in Los Angeles and Orange County.

League spokesman Michael Signora says in a statement emailed Monday that "an error by the clock operator" after a touchback allowed extra time to run off, and "it is the responsibility of the side judge to supervise the timing of the game." The statement adds: "Had the side judge or any of the other six on-field officials noticed the timing error, they could have corrected it." The...

A league that goes to great lengths to avoid pitting owner against owner revenue sharing, salary cap, and cross-ownership rules that preclude owners from fighting over the sports dollar in the same cities is now bracing for a clash of the titans.

    Recently, though, a San Diego man thought it might be an idea to take a selfie with a rattlesnake. Some might think this has all the sense of taking a boa constrictor clubbing. However, as KGTV in San Diego reported, Todd Fassler picked a rattlesnake out of the brush and thought he might memorialize the event. The snake had other ideas and bit him.....His medical expenses could be described as expensive. KGTVs Dan Haggerty tweeted Fasslers bill for $153,161.25. Of this, more than $83,000 was for pharmacy. His case reportedly depleted the antivenom supplies at two local hospitals.

    Krugman is for a single-payer health care system and argues that socialist health care systems provide better health outcomes at cheaper cost around the world. My response was that third-party payer systems in education and health care are what's driving up costs and that health care premiums paid by families are rising way faster than Obama predicted. Where are the $2,500 in family savings? Medicare is apparently the glittering success story of government, yet it's running unfunded liabilities in the tens of trillions of dollars. Krugman was lamest in explaining the migration of a thousand people a day from blue...

Indira Esparza, a 22-year-old undocumented student who moved to the U.S. when she was 2, proudly unfurled the green, white and red flag of Mexico as she walked across the stage.

    One America News, which launched patriotically on July 4, 2013, is something of an anomaly in the cable news universe. First of all, it's based in San Diego, California. The channel's news coverage is intended to be straight down the middle, even though its talk shows are pretty staunchly conservative. The network does not cover sports or pop culture news. Like Lahren, many of its news anchors and reporters are young. And for now, it airs no commercials. The network may want to emulate Fox's success, but it's taking a very different path to get there. Robert and Charles Herring,...

The former Navy hospital corpsman served aboard the Midway for two years in the mid-1950s, toward the end of the Korean War. He hadnt seen the aircraft carrier since. So it was, you might say, the wish of a lifetime to see the old ship again. Mountz, from Fort Wayne, Ind., is dying of lung cancer. His daughter nominated him to be sponsored by a charity that grants the final wishes of older people. The Denver-based group Wish of...

    Under openly gay CEO Tim Cook, Apple has done a lot to forward gay rights. A year ago, the company stood up against homophobic legislation going through Arizona and organized a company-wide march in San Franciscos annual gay pride parade. All in all, Apples one of the most gay-friendly companies you can work for. So heres a shocker for you: When Apple figured out it had accidentally hired someone with a history of anti-gay activities, it quickly severed contact. The hire in question was Jay Love, a former politician Apple hired to lobby on its behalf to the Alabama state...
