Buxom Bandit shows off for security camera

Dumb blonde robs gas station, flaunting goods

She’s been dubbed the “Buxom Bandit.” But, the women caught on a surveillance camera, robbing a Gold Coast Australian gas station, game please more than anything a sketch artist could come up with.

Perhaps she needed to get her nails done or couldn’t get a guy to buy her a drink at the bar. Whatever the reasons motivating the Buxom Bandit, one thing is sure; police shouldn’t have to much trouble having her identified in a lineup, given that she didn’t bother to cover her face or her ample chest. 

An Queensland police news release stated that she drove up to the gas station in a car driven by a man.

The Buxom Bandit did remember to where a glove, so she didn’t get fingerprints on anything. Though, she put it on the wrong hand. In the video she can be seen going through the register with her bare hands, holding a knife in the gloved one. Maybe she will use the same defense as O.J. did.

The Buxom Blonde is still at large, but if caught, her trial will certainly make some jiggling headlines.

No more couch jumping for Maverick

Only two days after Katie Holmes filed for divorce, actor Tom Cruise was seen on the set of his next film Oblivion. Sources close to Holmes told the Post that she fears those associated with Scientology are following her every move.

“Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy to work this out,” Cruises publicist said in a statement.

Though, Fox News reports that law-enforcements sources said Katie Holmes is afraid that Tom Cruise may and try and kidnap their daughter Suri.

The couple was married Nov. 15, 2006 at the 15th-century Odescalchi Castle in Barcciano, Italy in Scientology fashion.

The two will fight for custody of their daughter. Cruise has yet to hire legal counsel for the divorce.

Colorado wildfires torment the city and leave many homeless

Residents pray for a shift in weather

Dozens upon dozens of homes have been destroyed due to the raging Colorado wildfires, stated Colorado Springs’ Mayor, Steve Bach, today. The full extent of the damage to the city, which is the second largest in Colorado, is still unknown; costs to rebuild will clearly be astronomical.

The size of the Colorado wildfire has doubled in size over the last several days, forcing thousands upon thousands of residents to flee the city. The situation has become so sever that even the Air Force Academy needed to be evacuated.

Though, if there is a change in weather, officials will have a better chance at quelling the Waldon Canyon Colorado wildfires.

As of Wednesday, the wildfire covered 24 square miles and was reaching towards the west edge of the city.  They first began Saturday and were fueled thanks to 65-m.p.h. winds.

“We have had the first break in the weather in the days since we have been here,” Rich Harvey, Fire Incident Commander, said. “We are going to go after it today aggressively.”

However, the Colorado wildfires have helped to introduce some unique technology to the general public and are potentially saving lives. Esri and Google Maps are presenting maps of the fires location and path, which are continuously updated.

“The primary use is for residents wanting very current information on where the fire is and whether they’re going to need to evacuate or not,” said Michael Goodchild, a geographer at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

More than 32,000 people had to evacuate Colorado Spring Wednesday June 27.

President Obama is slated to tour the damage Friday.

Lonesome George, the Galapagos island famed tortoise, passed away at 100

Lonesome George is thought the be the last of his subspecies

Lonesome George passed away Sunday, June 24, after what scientists believe to be 100 years. Throughout his life on the Galapagos Islands, the tortoise, despite great efforts from outside parties, never produced an offspring.

Lonesome George was believed to be the last living member of the subspecies Pinta island tortoises; however, he was rather young in age, given that Galapagos tortoises can live up to 200 years old. 

Female tortoises from a Spanish island were placed with Lonesome George on the Galapagos Island last year, but he was unable to mate with either. A similar attempt was made with female tortoises from Wolf Volcano, producing negative results as well.

Lonesome George’s cause death is currently unknown known, but there is an investigation underway. Fausto Llerena, long-time handler of Lonesome George, was the one to find the tortoise in his pen.

Tortoise species like Lonesome George helped scientist Charles Darwin create this theory of evolution back in the 19th century, reports ibnlive.com.

“Taken 2” trailer reminds us of Liam Neeson’s anger

Official trailer revs up fans

The official Taken 2 has been released, and fans are reminded once again of what a badass Liam Neeson is.  Liam Neeson once again takes on the role of CIA operative Brian Mills in Taken 2.

The Taken 2 trailer opens with Maurad, played by Rade Serbedzija, declaring, “He’s slaughtered our men, our brothers, our sons. We’re going to find him; we’re going to have our revenge.” He then throws dirt into what appears to be a grave

In the wake of the destruction and death Neeson left behind him in the Taken, the remaining members of those killed are out for blood.

Since, Kim, Mills’ daughter, played by Maggie Grace, was taken in the first film, it seems like a poor ploy to have it happen twice. Instead, his ex-wife is the one taken hostage.

Grace’s role does a complete one 180 in the Taken 2 trailer, turning her from hostage to hero, forcing her to utilize her experiences to help save her mother, and Mills must once again use every trick in his bag to rescue his ex-wife.

If the Taken 2 trailer is only half as good as the full version, then fans will certainly not be disappointed by this heat-pounding thriller.

 “I’ll finish this thing. You’ll just have to die,” Neeson says in angered, raspy tone at the end.

A release date has yet to be set.
