    (Newser) – The last message sent by 14-year-old Madison Coe before she was electrocuted in the bathtub shows the tragic mistake that killed her. "When you use and (sic) extension cord so you can plug your phone in while you're in the bath," the teen from Lovington, NM, wrote to a friend, sending a picture of the cord connection on top of a towel. But despite the precautions, Madison was apparently unaware that there was fraying on part of the cord, NBC 12 reports. Officials say she was killed after touching a frayed section while she was in the water....

    Jack D. Young, the pickup driver accused of causing Wednesday’s highway crash in Uvalde County that killed 13 congregants of a New Braunfels church, said he had been texting behind the wheel, a witness said today. “He said, ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I was texting on my phone,’” said Jody Kuchler, a welder from Leakey, saying he spoke to Young, 20, while he was still pinned in his wrecked truck after the collision.   “I told him. ‘Son do you know what you just did?’ He just kept saying, ‘I’m sorry. I’m sorry,’” recalled Kuchler, 55. He said Friday that...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. (WAVY) Social media sites are trying to remove fake ads that say users can text their votes for the Presidential Election. They cant! No states allow voting via texting. The only way to vote is by absentee ballot or showing up in person at your local polling precinct. Twitter is starting to suspend the accounts that share the ad. Officials havent said exactly who is posting the ads. There is also one floating around that is in Spanish, trying to target Hispanic voters.

    A federal prosecutor has issued a subpoena for the cellphone and other electronic records of Anthony Weiner after revealed his underage sexting. Preet Bharara, the prosecutor for the Southern District of New York, issued the order just a day after our revelation - and after the NYPD Special Victim's Unit began looking into possible charges resulting from the exchange between him and an out-of-state minor.

  • The Bible: The Difference Between the Original Autographs and Original Texts

    12/11/2015 2:00:41 PM PST · by SeekAndFind · 39 replies
    If you're looking for a way to critique the authority of Scripture, there are seemingly endless options. There are historical critiques (e.g., many of these books are forgeries). There are logical critiques (e.g., the Gospels contradict themselves). There are moral critiques (e.g., God is immoral to order the slaughter of entire cities). And there are hermeneutical critiques (e.g., no one can agree on what the Bible means). In recent years, however, a more foundational challenge has arisen. All of the above critiques are essentially the same; they all argue the words of the Bible are not true. But this...

    Virtual unwrapping software has revealed verses from the Book of Leviticus in a charred parchment scroll, making it the oldest biblical text after the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) announced on Monday. Found 45 years ago inside the Holy Ark of the synagogue at Ein Gedi, on the western shore of the Dead Sea, the 2.7-inch scroll was dated by C14 analysis to about 500 AD. This is the first time in any archaeological excavation that a Torah scroll was found in a synagogue, particularly inside a Holy Ark, the IAA said in a statement. ... To...

    The top Republican lawmaker on the House Science Committee issued a subpoena Wednesday to compel the Environmental Protection Agency to produce text messages and phone records for administrator Gina McCarthy. Because EPA has refused to provide a complete production of records in response to the Committees repeated requests, I am left with no alternative but to issue a subpoena to compel you to produce, among other things, unredacted cellular phone billing records and e-mails relevant to the Committees oversight, Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas wrote to McCarthy in a letter sent out Wednesday. Republican lawmakers have been trying to obtain...

    There are plenty of smartphone apps that make it easier to flirt and set up dates with strangers, but GM has an ace up its sleeve that may trump all of them. No, the car manufacturer isnt muscling its way into the dating game at least not directly. But its China R&D team has developed an Android app that lets a driver scan a license plate in order to start texting the owner of that car. The romantic implications of DiDi Plate, a prototype app debuted earlier this month at the Telematics Detroit 2014 conference, are obvious enough, even...

    What would you say if we told you that it's possible to copy, translate, edit and even erase the text inside any image you find on the internet? Well, you can, and it's a lot easier than you might think. All it requires is a new browser extension, called Project Naptha, made by developer Kevin Kwok. It uses a number of optical character recognition (OCR) algorithms, including libraries developed by Microsoft and Google, which quickly build a model of text regions, words and letters from nearly any image. Once installed, you simply hover your cursor over available image text and...

    Nicole Oulson told a national television audience today that she wants Curtis Reeves, the man accused of killing her husband in a Wesley Chapel movie theater, to spend the rest of his life in prison. He brought an unfair life sentence to me to have to raise my daughter alone, to have to live without the love of my life, for my daughter to grow up without her daddy by her side for graduation and marriage, Oulson said on ABCs Good Morning America. It was so unnecessary, it was for no reason. So I want him behind bars and to...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., July 31, 2013 Documents obtained by the Competitive Enterprise Institute after it filed suit against the Environmental Protection Agency prove Gina McCarthy, EPAs recently confirmed Administrator, was a frequent user of text messaging on her agency-funded phone while serving as Assistant Administrator for the Office of Air and Radiation. What makes this discovery something of a statistical miracle is EPAs insistence that it has no text message records for McCarthy on the 18 dates when McCarthy testified before Congress. Following up on a tip that McCarthys superiors cautioned her about her use of text messages, specifically what...

    Also, Animated Video Not Evidence The Judge in the Zimmerman trial just ruled that the jury will not get to see numerous text messages on Trayvon Martins phone regarding his prowess at fighting, including texts as to how to punch someone in the nose and make them bleed. The Judge did not give an explanation for her ruling other than to stand by her prior ruling as to social media evidence. It is not clear if the Judge found a lack of authentication, which was one of the arguments last night. The Judge did indicate she reviewed the Lumarque case...

    AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, and other wireless providers would be required to capture and store Americans' confidential text messages, according to a proposal that will be presented to a congressional panel today. The law enforcement proposal would require wireless providers to record and store customers' SMS messages -- a controversial idea akin to requiring them to surreptitiously record audio of their customers' phone calls -- in case police decide to obtain them at some point in the future.

    Muslim Brotherhood text reveals scope of radical creed Translated by Palestinian Media Watch, book details groups goal of global Islamic conquest. One of the greatest beneficiaries of the unrest in Egypt has been the Muslim Brotherhood. Banned but tolerated for decades by successive Egyptian regimes, the Islamist movement is now emerging as a central player in the countrys resurgent opposition. On Tuesday, two Brotherhood representatives participated in an opposition delegation that met with Vice President Omar Suleiman for the first set of talks over implementing political reforms. Pundits have portrayed the Brotherhood as uncompromising zealots or beneficent providers of social...

    A fan of the Buffalo Bills is suing the team as part of a class-action lawsuit, claiming he received too many text message alerts from the team ... after he signed up for a text-message-alert program. Yes, you're right. This is the most Buffalo Bills fan thing ever. Jerry Wojcik, a Florida resident who roots for the Bills, signed up for a team-run text-message program that alerts him to news and scores and whatnot. He was promised five text messages a week. But, the Buffalo News reports, he received six text messages one week and -- gasp -- seven another...
