Feds Raid Home of Jared From Subway

jaredfogleThe man who captured America’s and the world hearts with his incredible weight loss journey and keeping it off has just been captured by the FBI.

Federal authorities raided the Indiana home of Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle early Tuesday morning.

Reports are coming in that officials were serving warrants at Fogle’s Zionzville, Ind. home in connection with a child pornography investigation.

Fogle was detained while electronics were removed from the home and analyzed inside a mobile forensics van, the Associated Press reports.

Now check this out a former director of the Jared Foundation, which was started by Fogle, was arrested earlier this year after being accused of possessing and producing child pornography. Russell Taylor, the former executive director of the Jared Foundation, 43, attempted suicide on May 6 at the Marion County Jail, and was placed on life support, but his health has improved, according to officials. He faces seven counts of production of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography in a case that began when a woman he had been emailing alerted authorities to Taylor’s offer to show her images of children.

After Taylor’s arrest Fogle issued a statement that said he was “shocked” over the allegations and that the foundation was “severing all ties” with Taylor.

It is not yet known if Tuesday morning’s raid was connected to that case.

Fogle, who once weighed 425 pounds but now maintains a weight of 190, has taped more than 300 commercials for the food chain. He makes appearances around the country on its behalf as well as giving speeches on the benefits of eating healthy.

Early commercials featured Fogle slipping into the 62-inch waist pants he wore when he was obese, and before he began eating exclusively at the Bloomington, Ind., Subway near Indiana University’s campus.

His former roommate, Ryan Coleman, brought attention to Fogle’s diet success in an article for the school newspaper that got the attention of the Milford, Conn.-based chain.

Man Dies While Shooting Fireworks Off Of Head

devonstaplesIt wouldnt be the first week after Independence Day Weekend without some unfortunate story of using fireworks gone bad.

In Calais, maine A 22-year-old man who was drinking and celebrating the Fourth of July tried to launch a firework off the top of his head, killing him instantly, authorities said Sunday.

Devon Staples and his friends had been drinking and setting off fireworks Saturday night in the backyard of a friend’s home in eastern Maine, said Stephen McCausland, a spokesman for the state Department of Public Safety.

Staples, 22, of Calais, a small city on the Canadian border, placed a reloadable fireworks mortar tube on his head and told his friends he was going to light it, McCausland said. But his friends urged him to stop.

“Apparently, he thought that was a great idea,” McCausland said. “His friends thought they dissuaded him from doing it, and the next thing they knew, he ignited the fireworks and he was killed instantly.”

Staples’s brother Cody told the Daily News of New York that he was a few feet away when his brother lit the firework and was the first to come to his side after it exploded.

“There was no rushing him to the hospital. There was no Devon left when I got there,” said 25-year-old Cody Staples, who called it an accident.

“Devon was not the kind of person who would do something stupid. He was the kind of person who would pretend to do something stupid to make people laugh,” he said.

Staples’ death is the first fireworks fatality in Maine since the state legalized fireworks on Jan. 1, 2012, authorities said.

According to reports and Facebook, Staples had worked at Disney World as Gaston and was recently in a viral video of a push-up competition.

Lawmakers had voted to repeal a 1949 law banning fireworks, reasoning the industry would create jobs and generate revenue.

State fire marshals were also investigating several other Fourth of July fireworks accidents involving injuries in Friendship, Jefferson, Lebanon and Woodstock. They said most of the accidents involved burns and eye injuries. But this wasnt the only newsworthy injury.

In Montana on Saturday, a 32-year-old man was killed at a Billings home in a fireworks accident involving a mortar tube.

And in New Jersey, a 52-year-old man blew off a large piece of his left leg below the knee when he set off a tennis-ball sized firework in Leonia.

Cosby Admitted to Getting Drugs To Give To Women He Wanted To Have Sex With

BillCosbyThe question now becomes is this the official “checkmate” to the ongoing Cosby scandal?  This may be the final move which leaves the “king” with nowhere else to move around the board.

In Philadelphia, Bill Cosby admitted in a 2005 deposition that he obtained Quaaludes with the intent of giving them to young women he wanted to have sex with. He admitted giving the sedative to at least one woman.

The Associated Press went to court to compel the release of the documents, and they were made public Monday. Cosby’s lawyers had objected on the grounds that it would embarrass their client.

The 77-year-old comedian was testifying under oath in a lawsuit filed by a former Temple University employee. He testified he gave her three half-pills of Benadryl.

Cosby settled that sexual-abuse lawsuit for undisclosed terms in 2006. More than a dozen women have since accused him of sexually assaulting them. Some believe they were also drugged. Cosby has never been criminally charged, and most of the accusations are barred by statutes of limitations.

Cosby’s lawyers in the Philadelphia case did not immediately return phone calls. Cosby has shied away from addressing the accusations, will this finally make him come to the forefornt and fess up?  Will this now offer the victims a level of “closure”?

Skinny Jeans Do More Harm than CUTE

skinnyjeansWoman tend to use the expression that “pain is the price to pay for beauty” but now one beckons to ask is this truly “worth it”?

A 35-year-old Australian woman checked into a hospital after getting trapped in her skinny jeans, according to a study published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry. You know its a serious situation when it makes it into a medical journal.

The woman had reportedly been helping a family member move, and the repeated squatting in skinny jeans caused her muscles to swell, which led to a feeling of numbness in her feet. Because of the loss of sensation, she tripped and fell on her way home and spent hours on the ground before she was found.

When she checked into the hospital, she still suffered from weak ankles, and her legs were so swollen that her jeans had to be cut off. The woman was treated with intravenous hydration and made a full recovery after four days.

I think the most important and probably only question that should be asked is “WHY IN THE HELL WERE YOU HELPING SOMEONE MOVE IN DAMN SKINNY JEANS”. Now will people possible let their lower halves breathe while tryna be cute.

Dr. Perry Shieh, associate professor of neurology and director of the Neuromuscular Program at the University of California, Los Angeles, believes the incident was the result of repeated squatting in jeans that were too tight – and could not happen from wearing skinny jeans alone.

“The jeans themselves did not cause this,” Shieh tells PEOPLE. “If she was wearing skinny jeans and if she was squatting, the [jeans] could be pinching a muscle that would cause a swelling. If you’re swelling at the calves, that’s going to directly compress the calves and that’s going to cause direct damage to the muscles themselves.”

Though the incident seems like a rare occurance, Shieh did warn against wearing pants that are too tight.

“It’s not going to happen to everyone,” he says. “It depends on how tight [the jeans] are. If they’re really tight then I would be concerned. I would probably wear looser jeans.” Skinny jeans are a hazard and need to be addressed plain and simple.

Teens Create STD Color Changing Condoms

colorchangecondomsTalk about increasing the percentage of safe sex and dropping potentially new sexually transmitted disease cases.  This right here may honestly be a new level of genius.

Muaz Nawaz, Daanyaal Ali, and Chirag Shah, a group of 13 and 14-year-old students from London’s Isaac Newton Academy, wanted to “make detecting harmful STIs safer than ever before” without having to go through testing. So they created “smart” condoms.

“We wanted to make something that make detecting harmful STIs safer than ever before, so that people can take immediate action in the privacy of their own homes without the invasive procedures at the doctors,” 14-year-old Ali said. “We’ve made sure we’re able to give peace of mind to users and make sure people can be even more responsible than ever before.”

Their invention, cleverly named the S.T.EYE, is a condom that glows a different color if an STD is detected. No secrets here, guys!

According to reports, the condom uses a built-in indicator that changes to a different color depending on the bacteria or infection it detects. The students said it may glow green for chlamydia, yellow for herpes, purple for human papillomavirus, or blue for syphilis.  This will definitely change the remaining for the fabled “rainbow parties”.

The creation of S.T.EYE earned the young teens the top health innovation prize at the city’s TeenTech Awards, which included £1,000 and a trip to Buckingham Palace, where they’ll recieve their prize.

The TeenTech Awards are intended to promote science, engineering, and technology in schools. At the competition, groups of kids ranging in age from 11 to 16 attempt to create “technology to make life better, simpler or easier.”

But don’t rush out to buy your pack of smart condoms just yet. A spokesperson for TeenTech tells the Daily Dot they’re “very much a concept and…not a finalized design.” Will these condoms completely outsell regular condoms and will they potentially put a halt on sporadic hookups?

McDonald’s Employee Quits Before Shift Is Over, After Winning Big On Lunch Break

quitmcdonaldsWell if there is any other way to leave your job then this my friends is ultimately that way.

Martin Reiter has been shuffling jobs for the past 9 months, working anywhere from his local Walmart chain to his neighborhood McDonald’s in Chicago. Wherever he has been employed, work for him has been strictly a “get in and get out” affair. It wasn’t until his night shift 2 weeks ago that it appeared Martin would be “getting out” forever.

While browsing Facebook on his lunch break, Martin came across an online pokies site giving away $25 in free spins. With nothing to lose and 30 minutes of free time, Martin decided to try his luck. What happened 12 spins and 20 minutes later would change his fate forever.

In one single spin, Martin won the progressive jackpot of Bingo Hall’s “Treasures of the Pharaoh” game, cashing out on $362,259 in the matter of 5 seconds. Having won over 20 times his annual salary in a single spin, Martin’s McDonald’s career had come to an abrupt end.

“I just didn’t believe it at first,” Martin said. “I thought it was some sick April Fool’s day joke my coworkers had played on me. It was until I hit the cash out button and saw the $362,259 number next to my name that I knew it was real.”

After some choice words for his boss upon exiting, Martin hasn’t been seen at McDonald’s since. (this is one of those times where you really want to see the surveilance video).

And while one of the bigger winners of the giveaway, Martin certainly isn’t the only one to cash out on Bingo Hall’s free spins. Since the promotion began last month, over 238 players all overChicago have won money from 100% free play. However, it appears the giveaway will be soon ending as the company has already paid out over $1,000,000 in total winnings this last month.

Mail Today news reporter Jane Linn also tried her hand at the jackpot but sadly only walked away with a $485 – you can’t always win as big as Jeremy sadly!”

Newspaper Headline Confuses Pitchers Talent In Debut

funnyheadlineNow of course this isn’t the first time that a headline in a newspaper was hilariously wrong. But I think we can clearly say this one is kind of funny in itself.

An Oregon newspaper might want to check its auto correct settings as well as its editor after a headline hailed the debut of an “amphibious pitcher.”

The article, which Twitter user Neill Woelk found on page 3B of the June 6 edition of the East Oregonian, bore the headline, “Amphibious pitcher makes debut.”

However, the subject of the story, Oakland Athletics relief pitcher Pat Venditte, is actually ambidextrous — he can pitch with both arms.

Venditte’s ability to pitch underwater, as the headline would imply, has yet to be proven.

Woelk joked Venditte “faces Aquaman in [his] next outing.” Could he be the surprise villain in the upcoming Justice League movie?

Australian Couple Threatens Divorce If Same-Sex Marriage Passes

rainbowflagIn the midst of the world now taking a stand on Same-Sex marriage it now has gotten where everyone isn’t on board with their country promoting equality.

An Australian man said an expected parliament vote on same-sex marriage later this year would “force” him to divorce his wife if the measure passes.

Nick Jensen wrote in an opinion piece for the Canberra CityNews that he and his wife, Sarah, have decided they will get a divorce if the country approves marriage rights for gay and lesbian Australians.

“The decision to divorce is not one we’ve taken lightly. And certainly, it’s not one that many will readily understand. And that’s because it’s not a traditional divorce,” he wrote.

Jensen, a former employee of the Australian Christian Lobby, said he and his wife will continue to live together, raise their children together and will still consider themselves “married by the Church and before God.”

“The reason, however, is that, as Christians, we believe marriage is not a human invention.Our view is that marriage is a fundamental order of creation. Part of God’s intimate story for human history. Marriage is the union of a man and a woman before a community in the sight of God. And the marriage of any couple is important to God regardless of whether that couple recognizes God’s involvement or authority in it.

My wife and I, as a matter of conscience, refuse to recognize the government’s regulation of marriage if its definition includes the solemnization of same sex couples.”

The Canberra CityNews, which printed a photo of Nick and Sarah Jensen on its cover, has come under fire online for publishing the article, which many have branded “homophobic.”

Ian Meikle, editor of the magazine, defended the decision to run the piece.

“I think this couple had an interesting angle, and that it was newsworthy,” he told news.com.au.

“The article does not reflect the opinion of the paper. We published arguments and I decided it was a serious enough argument to genuinely warrant some attention,” he said. “It’s an unusual love story, and what would life be if people didn’t have different ways of life.”

Man I wonder how many American men may try to get this to follow suit if they pass Same Sex marriage across the board nation wide.
