    So how did I end up with a city employee traipsing across my front yard with divining rods on a recent evening, searching for underground water? The answer begins with a boneheaded blunder on my part. I accidentally clipped a sprinkler head on the edge of the driveway while pulling into my yard, and water began bubbling up from underground. I’d never used those sprinklers and thought the line was dead when I bought the house five years ago. Clearly it was not, and water was now running down the street in the middle of a drought. So I called the emergency number for the Pasadena Water Department, and the operator promised to send a troubleshooter. A friendly chap showed up in minutes and did a quick assessment. There was no way to stop the gusher without turning off the main water supply to the house, he said. So he took care of that and said I’d have to call a plumber to figure out where the underground sprinkler pipe tied into the main water line, then have him dig...
    HAUNTING images captured students pretending to be dead as they participated in a shooting drill at gunman Salvador Ramos' high school. The drill happened on March 22, only two months before Ramos, 18, opened fire at nearby Robb Elementary School, killing two teachers and 19 kids. 8A chilling image shows students at Uvalde High School pretending to be dead as they participated in an active shooter drill on March 22Credit: Uvalde CISD Police Department 8The Uvalde CISD police department posted images that show officers reenacting different scenarios in classroomsCredit: Uvalde CISD Police Department 8Officers were seen lecturing the school's staff on how to react to an active shooter, two months before the tragedy at nearby Robb Elementary SchoolCredit: Uvalde CISD Police Department 8Police say Salvador Ramos, 18, entered the elementary school on Tuesday and killed 19 kids and two teachersCredit: Uvalde Police Department One of the teachers killed, Eva Mireles, 44, was married to Uvalde School District police officer Ruben Ruiz, who held the active shooter drill.

    The family of an alleged victim of the Gilgo Beach serial killer has slammed police for saying her death was a 'tragic accident'. Shannan Gilbert's relatives hit out at officers for claiming her disappearance in Long Island in 2010 was not suspicious. Their attorney released stunning new evidence the 24-year-old's neck had been broken before she was killed and had a puncture hole in it that could have been caused by a drill. John Ray also hinted more details would follow as he told DailyMail.com there were a lot of 'surprises in my bag' ahead of a press conference on Tuesday. Gilbert's body was found on December 13, 2011 in a swamp in Oak Beach - about a quarter mile from where she was last seen alive. She has long been tied to the unsolved Gilgo Beach murders, with police finding four other women buried in burlap sacks when they were searching for her. The four women would later be known as the 'Gilgo Beach Four', with all of them having worked as escorts using Craigslist. Six more bodies, linked to...

    NATO is today holding a huge military drill in the Baltics just a day after Finland and Sweden confirmed their intention to join the alliance, raising tensions with Russia. Some 15,000 troops from 10 different countries - including Finland, Sweden and a small detachment from Ukraine - will participate in the exercise dubbed 'Siil' or 'Hedgehog' which will take place just 40 miles from the nearest Russian base.  The drill will simulate an attack from Russia on Estonia and will be one of the largest exercises based out of the country since 1991 - largely bolstered by an additional 900 British troops deployed to Tallin in February before the war in Ukraine broke out. NATO stressed that Hedgehog has been long-planned, but it none-the-less underscores tensions in the Baltics which have ramped up dramatically after Putin ordered his army across Ukraine's borders on February 24. Russian state media last night threatened to deploy additional nuclear weapons to the region after Finland and Sweden formally applied to join the alliance, blaming the Kremlin's decision to attack Ukraine as the reason for...
    RESEARCHERS have revealed plans to drill into Antarctican ice sheets in the hopes of recovering one of the oldest continuous ice cores. Located in the easter region of Antarctica is a 4,500-foot snow hill called Law Dome – under its surface is an ice core considered to be one of the 'Holy Grails' of Antarctica. 1Researchers have revealed plans to drill into Antarctican ice sheets in the hopes of recovering one of the oldest continuous ice cores Ice cores help scientists look back into the past in the hopes of understanding Earth's climate history and ice ages, per CNET. They can also provide insight into the Antarctic, which may help scientists tackle climate change. "It's probably the most pure recorder of environmental information of any paleoclimate archive," Tas van Ommen, an ice core scientist at the Australian Antarctic Division, said. And this particular ice core is one million years old.

    I used to think there was nothing sexier than seeing my husband walk through the house with a tool kit and ladder. Not anymore — not since I saw a report about how many home improvement projects land DIYers in the emergency room. Now I like to see professionals walking through my house doing home projects, because that means DC is not at risk of losing any critical body parts. According to a study out this week from Clearsurance, an online insurance site, home improvement injuries resulted in nearly 300,000 trips to the emergency room in 2020. That is a record high and corresponds to the increased number of people tackling DIY projects while at home during the pandemic. I share this news with DC to talk him off any future ladders. “Do those numbers include injured pride?” he wants to know. “If it did, every neighborhood would need a MASH unit,” I said. Here are more of the report’s findings, which are based on figures from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission: Home improvement injuries accounted for 3 percent...
    Drill, baby, drill! President Joe Biden has done a 180 on energy as he looks to lower gas prices across the country. Big Joey needs a bailout now from the oil and gas industry to produce more, which will go along with his authorization of tapping the nation’s strategic reserves to the tune of a million barrels a day for six months. Wonder how the green AOC/Bernie crowd feels about this? Breitbart’s Jerome Hudson, filling in for host Alex Marlow, breaks it down. Then, Biden acknowledged International Transgender Visibility Day by not telling the truth on bills banning teachers from talking/teaching about sex to kindergarteners. Plus, the southern border is about to go from really bad to worse. Our first guest is Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg (U.S. Army, ret.) who analyzes the latest on the Ukraine situation and how we need to keep a close eye on China. The second guest is Rep.

    Disney World officials say they 'regret' allowing a Texas high school drill team to parade in their park Tuesday with a performance that featured American Indian stereotypes including repeated chants of 'scalp them.' The performance by the all-female 50-member squad saw the Port Neches-Groves High School 'Indianettes' march and dance in fringed outfits along Main Street USA in the park's Magic Kingdom to Native American-inspired music, with moves taken from said cultures. In the footage, members can be seen tapping their hands over their mouths and whooping as a drum rhythmically pounds in the background, mimicking what is stereotypically called a Native American 'war cry.' 'The live performance in our park did not reflect our core values, and we regret it took place,' reps for the Florida park said in a statement Friday, after video of the park-approved performance surfaced online. 'It was not consistent with the audition tape the school provided and we have immediately put measures in place so this is not repeated,' theme park officials added.   Students also marched with the arms raised in a fashion that seemingly drew on Western interpretations of...
    A 'depressed' Vladimir Putin has moved his family to a 'secret underground city' and is 'set to hold a nuclear evacuation drill' with the Kremlin's doomsday plan, insider sources have claimed.  One source that previously said Putin is suffering from multiple and serious medical problems, and also claimed that Russian death toll in the Ukraine war was higher than even Kyiv's estimates with over 17,000 casualties in 23 days of fighting.  Putin 'often pours his anger out on those close to him,' the latest account said from the source - a Telegram channel supposedly linked to an ex-Kremlin intelligence insider who claims to retain close links to those in Putin's circle. 'He has no deep conversations with almost anyone, and limited contact even with his children - not only his [adult] daughters but also his [undisclosed] children with [Olympic gold medal winning gymnast, 38] Alina Kabaeva'. The source said that Putin shocked his top generals recently by demanding nuclear drill be undertaken, increasing fears he is preparing for a nuclear conflict.  Another Russian expert has claimed that Putin has moved his family...
    Republicans have ramped up their demands for President Biden to spur domestic oil production, and the White House is pointing the finger at the oil and gas industry.   'The oil and gas industry has millions of acres leased. They have 9000 permits to drill now that could be drilling right now, yesterday, last week last year. They have 9000 permits to drill onshore that are already approved,' Biden said, as he faces heat from Republicans who claim his administration has hindered the oil and gas industry.  'So let me be clear, let me be clear, they are not using them for production. Now that's their decision. These are the facts,' Biden added.  He also pushed back on the argument that his executive order that put a pause on new oil and gas leases on federal land had hampered production.  'In the United States 90 percent of onshore oil production takes place on land that isn't owned by the federal government and the remaining 10 percent occurs on federal land,' Biden said.  But at the same time, the White House sent...

    One of the many drills that prospects participate in at the NFL Combine is the 3-cone drill. Here is an explanation of the exercise. The NFL Combine may have begun on March 1, but the first day of drills for prospects begins on March 3. Of course there is the 40-yard dash, where players from each position group run in a straight line as quickly as possible. Then there is the bench press, where teams see how many reps a draft prospect can press 225-pounds. While those drills do not require much explanation, there is one drill that is a bit more complex. Of course, we are talking about the 3-cone drill. Here is what the drill requires each participant to do.2022 NFL Combine: What is the 3-cone drillThe first thing to know about the 3-cone drill is that there are actually 4 cones. The 3 cones are placed five yards apart in an L-shape. The goal of the 3-cone drill is to measure how a player can change direction while running full speed. Prospects begin the drill at the first...
    A geothermal energy start-up plans to use a wave drill, that can penetrate 12.4 miles in the Earth's crust, releasing virtually unlimited amounts of clean energy.  Quaise Energy, a startup out of MIT, based in Boston and Houston, recently secured $40 million in funding to help it get the first drilling rig off the drawing board.  The system works by drilling down to base rock, then firing high-power millimeter waves into the ground, without the need for complex mechanical drills that are limited by the pressure and intense heat deep into the crust.  The goal is to be able to repurpose existing fossil fuel power plants, replacing burning coal with 900F heat from miles below the surface of the Earth. The firm hope to have the first drilling platform live by 2024, the first wells producing up to 100 megawatt of geothermal energy by 2026, and fossil power plants repurposed by 2028, delivering clean energy around the world.   A geothermal energy start-up plans to use a wave drill, that can penetrate 12.4 miles (20km) in the Earth's crust, releasing virtually unlimited...

    New York City Mayor Eric Adams, pictured Friday, said that Twitter and Instagram should banish violent videos by drill rappers which he blamed for promoting the kind of violence that killed 18-year-old Jayquan McKenley New York City Mayor Eric Adams called on Twitter and Instagram to dump 'drill' - meaning to fight or retaliate - rap videos which he says promote gun violence.  'We pulled Trump off Twitter, because of what he was spewing,' he said Friday at a press conference. 'Yet we're allowing music, displaying of guns, violence. We're allowing it to stay on these sites.'  He was alerted to the drill rap videos which he says glorify killing after his son, Jordan Coleman, who works for Jay-Z, told him about it. Drill rapping tends to have heavily Autotuned vocals and themes of violence, killing and death.  It was the death of Jayquan McKenley, 18, a drill rapper who goes by the name Chii Wvttz, who was killed outside a Brooklyn recording studio last week that struck a chord with the mayor.  Adams said he wants to meet with...
    A NAIL salon customer is being slammed online for critiquing a nail technician following a trip to get a manicure. They posted a video complaining about the tech removing their calluses, but many people said they are just being ungrateful. 3A person started a debate online over whether or not nail technicians should remove calluses from your handsCredit: Instagram 3The video showed the poster's calluses being removed, and the person did not seem happyCredit: Instagram “Went to the nail salon and the lady started doing this,” the person wrote over a video of the tech filing down their hand calluses with an electric drill. “She said I should wear gloves when I work out.” In the caption of the video, the poster asked viewers what they would do if they were in the situation, which turned the comment section of the video into a debate over proper nail tech protocol and whether or not getting calluses removed is beneficial. “That's love and a good nail tech,” one person wrote in support of the manicurist. “Be grateful she’s getting rid of...
    NASA's Perseverance rover has tried out a nifty new feature for the first time, which let it 'spit out' a piece of Mars rock that had been clogging its sampling tube.  The trick means that Perseverance can now continue taking samples of rock from the Red Planet to search for possible signs of ancient life.   The SUV-sized vehicle has been on the Red Planet since February 2021, and is slowly trundling through the Jezero Crater taking rock samples for later retrieval.  On December 29, while retrieving a sample from a rock, its sixth so far, NASA engineers found they couldn't get the rock to go into the storage area. This was due to a pebble-sized piece of debris obstructing the robotic arm, blocking the entrance to the tube docking area - nearly a month later, this has been solved.  NASA used an untested 'un-choking procedure', that involved pointing the drill containing a clogged test tube towards the ground and rotating it at high speed.  This caused the pebbles to fall out, and land back on the surface of the Red...
    NASA announced on Wednesday that it will send an ice-mining experiment to the moon's south pole, set to head into orbit late next year. The mission will head to a ridge close to the Shackleton crater by late 2022, an area where NASA engineers and scientists believe could have ice below the surface.  This region, which has been studied for 'months,' gets enough sunlight to power a lander for a 10-day mission, while still being in a clear line of sight for communications. Scroll down for video  It will be the first time resources are found and extracted on the moon, which could help NASA establish a presence in space, particularly for the upcoming Artemis missions.  NASA is working with Intuitive Machines, the agency's partner for commercial deliveries to the moon, on the mission. It will use Intuitive's Nova-C lander.

    Russian Emergencies Minister Yevgeny Zinichev has died while attempting to save a person's life during training exercises in the Arctic city of Norilsk, the ministry said on Wednesday.  Zinichev, a close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, was taking part in military drills and exercises by law enforcement agencies in the city of Norilsk at the time. Reports said the army general, 55, who had been tipped as a possible successor to Putin, had fallen from a rock while trying to save a cameraman who had plunged into the icy water. Documentary filmmaker Alexander Melnik, 63, who Zinichev had been trying to save, also died.

    More than 100 men say they are stranded on a drill ship in the Gulf of Mexico after Hurricane Ida battered the area, and they don’t know when they’ll be rescued. "I mean I was watching grown men with life jackets hold on for dear life crying in the hallway. It was bad," one anonymous crew member told KLFY News Ten. Crew on the Noble’s Globetrotter II drill ship, which is located about 100 miles from Louisiana’s shore, said they rode out the storm as 80 foot waves and 150 mile an hour winds battered the ship. The crew said Noble Corporation and Shell were supposed to rescue them, but help never arrived.  IDA DEVASTATES LOUISIANA, MAY TAKE DAYS TO LEARN EXTENT OF DAMAGE: LIVE UPDATES "Being on the top deck, you can look through the glass and see the bottom of the rig at certain points in time.

    Earlier this month, the Perseverance rover set out to collect some rock samples on Mars. It was supposed to be a key moment in the rover's historic sample-return mission, one in which Perseverance was to collect, store and return Martian rock and soil samples to Earth. (The rocket that will pick up the samples hasn't launched yet, and may not for almost a decade; currently, Perseverance is doing the grunt work of collection.) To date, Perseverance had been highly successful: its risky landing worked perfectly, and Ingenuity, the 4-pound helicopter that hitched a ride to Mars on Perseverance's back, overcame massive barriers to become the first powered-controlled flight on another planet. Compared to those feats, Perseverance's next task — drilling out a finger-sized hole in a rock — seemed simple. But after the drilling, the collection tube came back empty. Mission control was in disbelief. As Salon previously reported, scientists rushed to figure out why the sample went missing. Did the drill somehow miss? It didn't seem so — images from the Red Planet revealed there was a hole in...

    BRONZEVILLE — For the last 14 years, the Golden Knights Drill Team has entertained Bud Billiken Parade goers with heart-stopping, slickly choreographed routines while inspiring a new generation of performers to join their ranks. When the pandemic hit, everything stopped. Events were canceled, and the team couldn’t even use their Fuller Park practice space to keep busy. They also took a financial hit, as the resources they usually relied upon to stay afloat were inaccessible. Now, with a little over a week until the Bud Billiken Parade, the nonprofit arts organization hopes to raise enough money to return. A crowd favorite, the group won first place in 2015 and 2016. A fundraiser aims to raise $5,000 for transportation, entry fees and other essentials for the team. “We’ve been out of commission for two years now,” said Director Amaris Hewitt, who — along with William Charles and Antonio Hughes — established the drill team in 2007, using dance as a way to keep kids safe. In May, the group finally resumed practice in their Fuller Park space, and if they can...

    Devin Booker. Matt York/AP Images Devin Booker dominated a 1-on-1 drill for the Suns during a 2015 pre-draft workout. When the Suns tried to end the drill, Booker reportedly cursed them out. Booker has become a franchise superstar for a Suns team now three wins from a championship. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. In a pre-draft workout in 2015, Devin Booker displayed a level of dominance that intrigued the Phoenix Suns. According to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne, the Suns invited Booker and several other players for a pre-draft workout before the 2015 draft. During the workout, the Suns ran a popular drill: one-on-one games, where if the offensive player scores, he stays on the court until he misses, at which point he plays defense. If he gets scored on, a new player cycles in. Former Suns GM Ryan McDonough told Shelburne that Booker dominated the drill. "He just kept scoring," McDonough told Shelburne. "Nobody could stop him. He just kept scoring and scoring to the point that we were like, 'OK, we've seen enough. This is really...
    Supreme Court turns back Obamacare challenge Ask Mister Manners: Is it OK to arrive late for a family Zoom call? A maintenance update has been released for Clash Royale today. It made some server-side improvements and nerfed the mobile game’s latest card, Goblin Drill. © Provided by Dot Esports The changes are as follows: The first Goblin from the drill will now spawn after a second instead of instantly entering the arena. The three Goblins that spawn upon destroying the drill will now deploy in a circle. Finally, the push to other units when the Goblin Drill erupts has also been reduced. While the card wasn’t particularly overpowered, these changes have been made to make it more balanced. The nerfs were explained in a Twitter thread by Clash Royale’s community manager, Maxime Cambier. Cambier said the first Goblin was difficult for opponents to react to. Thus, a delay has been added to its spawn time to allow the enemy to counter the attack. Upon being destroyed, the three Goblins were deployed in the same location, which pushed...
    Molly Mendoza This story was produced by Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting.  When Wanda Vincent looks out the windows of her daycare center in Arlington, Texas, past the playground, she sees a row of enormous beige storage tanks. They’re connected to two wells that produce natural gas for Total, one the world’s largest fossil fuel companies. No government agency—city, state or federal—monitors the air here or inspects regularly for emissions. So Vincent has no way of knowing whether dangerous gases are leaking out of all that equipment, potentially harming the children and staff who spend their days so close to those wells. She feels surrounded.

    Social media has been almost unanimously appalled this week after watching the clip of a violent collision between two youth football players. Anyone signing up to play football recognizes it’s a contact sport. But just as professional players can finally demand safety measures are implemented by the NFL, parents should be able to trust youth coaches will prioritize the health of their children. And in the below clip, that clearly wasn’t the case. Are they too young to be doing this drill? pic.twitter.com/lA8G9U86Wx — Young Black Jesus (@Zeekncashe) May 11, 2021 These two children were not only mismatched physically, but proper technique is also absent from the drill with the runner using the crown of his helmet to initiate contact.

    Ukraine fears more than 100,000 Russian troops will be in place on its borders, ready to invade, by the end of the month. A Ukrainian government report, obtained by the Daily Mail, estimates the Kremlin will deploy up to 30,000 extra soldiers, accompanied by more tanks and rocket systems, in support of 80,000 Russian troops already awaiting orders to advance. The figures are based on intelligence intercepts and satellite photographs as troops and equipment travel hundreds of miles across Russia to amass around its neighbour. Moscow has claimed it has no plans to invade and is merely carrying out military exercises, but Kiev also worries the Kremlin could deploy nuclear missiles to Crimea, the peninsula Russia forcibly annexed in 2014, Ukraine's defence minister said yesterday.

Jane Fonda didn’t invent the genre of the multihyphenate star, but she’s certainly spent her nearly 70-year career pushing the boundaries of the term. As an actress-fitness guru-activist, she’s acquired an expansive collection of trophies, a closet full of belted leotards, and a long record of arrests. As an advocate, Fonda has seemingly taken on as many causes as she’s had roles in feature films, ranging from anti-war protester to outspoken feminist. These days, at 83 years young, here’s what’s atop her civil disobedience to-do list: dealing with climate change. For years, Fonda has been spotted protesting Arctic drilling and new pipelines—including this week, when the fully-COVID-vaccinated Oscar winner traveled to Minnesota to protest the Line 3 tar sands pipeline alongside Indigenous activists. But she said the true urgency of the climate crisis didn’t fully hit her until she witnessed the widespread...
