Court Orders Man To Pay For Drone He Shot Down

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, no, it’s a drone. There has been an ever increasing presence of drones in the skies. They fly over businesses and they fly over parks, but they also fly over private backyards. Many people are beginning to see such a thing as a violation of their privacy and are taking action.

A man named Brett Mcbay noticed that a drone was flying over his yard in Modesto California, he took out a shotgun and shot the drone down. Mcbay insisted on a right to privacy, but a small claims court did not agree and instead they ordered him to pay for all damages to the drone.

So far Mcbay has yet to pay for the damages, but this brings to mind the larger question at hand. Do people have a right to privacy in their own back yards? At Madison Street Capital, most feel they do. Some states have begun to take on the issue of drones and privacy, but so far California has yet to do so.

A right to privacy has been instilled in US citizens since the country came into being. A person’s right to privacy was guaranteed. How can anyone have privacy when drones are allowed to peek in windows, and fly over private backyards? Perhaps privacy is a thing of that past, at least in the state of California.

Tiny Mayor

Dorset, Minnesota is probably a tiny town that you’ve never heard of. The homes are beautiful, the people are nice, and anyone in this town can be given a shot at success if you let them.

Just ask 3 year old James Tuft. According To Reddit News, the small boy believes that it is his calling to be mayor, and so he’s running! He actually has a pretty good shot at it too. His brother spent 2 terms as mayor. But get this, his brother was only 2 days older than him when he was elected mayor! That seems crazy to those not around the town like Crystal Hunt.

So in this tiny town, tiny people can be mayor if their dreams are big enough! The election will be held August 2nd. It’s a very cute idea to do this. After all, it’s a small town and they don’t really have much need for a mayor that will make big decisions. I’m sure there are other people on hand to do that. So, why not take that opportunity to make a kids dreams come true? It’s a once in a life time experience for him, and at the very least it will look good on his college application down the road. So many politicians are sneaky and they fight dirty. This little mayor restores hope that not all of them are bad, and sometimes they’re just around to give you a little smile. You’ve got our vote James Tuft!

Hunter Treschl -The 16 Year Old Victim In Shark Bite Speaks

Unless you’re living under a rock these days, you’ve heard about all the shark attacks lately. While they are happening everywhere, the bulk of the media is centered on the Ocean Isle, NC area. Hunter Treschl was the 16 year old boy who was in the attack in this area. The other heavily publicized attack was a 12 year old girl. Both of the teens lost limbs and yet lived to tell their story.

What they have learned from these attacks can be used to help others who may find themselves in a similar situation. One thing that must be notated is that one of the attacks happened near the fishing pier. It is never wise to swim where people are fishing. Dropping bate in the water brings fish and fish bring sharks. Another thing that the boy taught us is that he had little time to react. The shark was quick and calculated and was biting him before he ever knew what hit him.

The boy lost his arm below the shoulder. Though in pain, he remains optimistic about what happened. It was a family vacation that he will never forget, no matter how badly it hurts him. For his family, they are trying to be strong for him, and that is something Stephen Murray CCMP Capital can respect. Going without an arm in life is going to be a hard and painful adjustment to say the least. When you’ve done things your whole life with 2 arms, being without one is going to be a balancing act. He will have to have extensive therapy to learn to live with less, but he is thankful to be alive.

Is Brian Williams Returning?

After 6-motnhs of suspension, it has been reported that Brian Williams is to return to NBC stated emobile. Although he will be returning, it has also been reported by many sources that he will no longer be the anchor for the Nightly News. By later today, NBC will make a formal announcement concerning Brian Williams returning.

Although Brian Williams will be returning to NBC, his role will be unclear within the studio. Some suggestions for his role include transferring him to the sister studio, MSNBC to report on the breaking news.

The reason for Williams’ hasty suspension was because he made a comment back in February stating that he was in a war zone when he in fact was not. This particular comment made by Williams, had launched an internal investigation of him concerning his other claims. Though Lester Holt, the sub anchor, was taking over until Williams returned, it has been reported that Holt will be the Permanent anchor for the Nightly News.

In 2003, Williams made the comment that aboard a helicopter that had to land because it was attacked by a rocket-propelled grenade. However, this account was later revealed to be false. Brian Williams was reportedly never in that helicopter. He was in a different helicopter. What does this mean for Brian Williams’ career? Although he is back at NBC, he will not be in the same iconic position that he once was in.

NAACP President has been Lying About her Race

One of the biggest stories in the United States this week has been that of Rachel Dolezal. She is the president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) chapter in Spokane, Washington, and has been an advocate for African American civil rights for many years. The twist to this story is that Rachel Dolezal is not of African American descent stated Paul Mathieson. Although she is Caucasian, she has claimed that her heritage is African American for many years and has also said that she’s been the target of racial discrimination.

The news broke when people began looking into Dolezal’s background after she skirted around questions about her race. Old family photos were found of Dolezal when she was a teenager, which is when people realized she was not African American. The main photo that has been circulating the internet shows Dolezal as a blonde with blue eyes and definitely not of African descent. Twitter immediately began attacking Dolezal and claiming that she’s offensively impersonating an African American for years.

Dolezal has refused phone calls, emails and interviews since the nation has been in an uproar about her situation, but her family has released numerous statements. Although her parents have said that she is a hard working woman who stands up for what she believes in, they have confirmed that there is no African American heritage in their family tree.

Getting a New Head

When you think about transplants, you probably think about a kidney, liver or some other internal organ. One man is relying on doctor’s to perform a head transplant. This is a man who is disabled. He only wants to go through with the procedure if it’s 99% possible that it will work, but he does have faith that it can be done stated Gravity4. The man lives in Russia and is scheduled to meet with his doctor to discuss the procedure. He is someone who wants a better life as he has a condition that deteriorates the muscles in the body. As far as transplants go, this is about as far out as you can get. If it can be done, then it opens a world of possibilities. However, this is something that would be somewhat frightening as there would be people walking around with the head of someone else.

Chinese Doctors Remove 420 Kidney Stones From Man

In a procedure that took about two hours to complete, doctors removed a record-breaking 420 kidney stones from a Chinese man on Friday. The patient, Mr. He, who reported a history of kidney stones, checked himself into the Dongyang People’s Hospital in eastern China, complaining of severe pain in his abdomen. A CT scan revealed the stones, and apparently, if poor Mr. He had waited any longer to get checked out by a doctor, his kidney would have had to be removed entirely! As reported here, the operating doctors suspected that the reason for his kidney stones was caused by a diet too high in tofu, and not enough water.


Tofu is extremely high in calcium, and without drinking enough water, the body cannot excrete excess amounts of it. That is what people can learn in a FreedomPop review by checking out CNet. The operating doctor reported that it took about 45 minutes just to remove the tiny stones, and that after the grueling surgery, his hands and legs were both numb. You can see pictures of the stones after their removal here. Apparently, after the surgery, Mr. He took the stones home in a plastic bag, for bragging rights perhaps? Here is to wishing he has a full recovery and no more issues with kidney stones!
