As we let on in the first part of this roundup, 2010 has been a banner year for weird tech news. When I sent out a note to our staff, asking for the top odd news of the year, I got far more responses than we could fit in a single story.After the jump, we’ve got a look back at the weird year that was, including lost iPhones, sex robots, time-traveling wireless customers, and exploding cell phones.AdChoices广告Lost iPhone 4 or “Apple Hates Dropped Calls”Before the WikiLeaks really hit the fan, Apple’s own leaks were the top contender for the tech story of the year. The notoriously tight-lipped company let a prototype of the next generation iPhone out of their site for a bit, and, all of the sudden, all hell broke loss. The phone found its way into the hands of Gizmodo, which helped the Gawker-owned gadget blog become something of a household name with mentions in news outlets across the globe. The drama culminated with a police raid of Giz blogger Jason Chen’s home in Fremont, CA. As it turns out, the blog managed to get its hands on the device when it was left behind at a Redwood City bar by an Apple engineer who was out celebrating his birthday.Cell Phone Time newser or “Can You Heard Me Now?”A time traveler! Caught! On film! Video from the 1928 premier of Charlie Chaplin’s The Circus made the Web rounds back in April when a hawkeyed viewer noticed something strange–a woman walking through the frame appeared to be talking…on a cell phone. She was talking to herself and holding something to her face–there was only one logical answer: she’s a time traveler. Actually, it turned out she was use an old timey hearing aid. And the rest, as they say, is future history.Please Rob Me or “Four Scare”In February, Please Rob Me was launched. The site pulled Foursquare data from Twitter, pulling together a collection of users who were leaving their home unoccupied–and therefore ripe for the robbing. Please Rob Me was launched as an attempt to bring to light the security risks involved with checking in to location-based services and ultimately ended up becoming the target of outrage itself.Paul Ceglia or “The Man Without a Face”Paul Ceglia helped found the Ithaca Green Party. He built houses in the Bahamas and helped start up an eco-friendly cemetery. Also, he owns 84 percent of one of the world’s most popular Web sites–at least according to him. Ceglia, who also runs a wood pellet company, announced that Zuckerberg had effectively signed over the majority of the Web site to him in its nascent days. The deal apparently involved 50 percent ownership plus an additional one percent per day after January 1, 2004, until the site was completed. Facebook, not surprisingly, called the suit “completely frivolous.”Roxxxy the Sex Robot or “Electric Love”We met Roxxxy earlier this year at the AVN show in Las Vegas (we just happened to be town for that other little show, ces). We wrote up the robot’s debut and it became one of biggest stories of the year. So, how is this sex robot different from every other sex robot? Well, for one thing, ol’ Roxxxy has artificial intelligence and five different personalities (creepy, right?). Also, as we learned from our story, her creator was struck by a bolt of inspiration after the largest terrorist attacks on American soil. He told us, “after 9/11, I wanted to give back.”Exploding Droid 2 or “Screen Resolution”This isn’t the first time we heard tell of an exploding gadget, but it did have one of the odder non-resolutions. Earlier this month, a Texas man went to the emergency room after his Droid 2 apparently exploded next to his ear while he was talking. A couple of weeks later, we received word from a source at Motorola, claiming that the thing hadn’t actually exploded. Instead, according to the company’s investigation, he shattered the handset after dropping it and cut himself attempting to talk on the broken handset.

Logo of BNPThe Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Sunday alleged that its chairperson Khaleda Zia’s nomination was revoked by the election commission (EC) at the behest of the government, reports UNB.”Ignoring the right judgement of a commissioner, the other commissioners, led by chief election commissioner, scrapped her (Khaleda’s) nomination through a dissenting and questionable order,” said BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi.Speaking at a press conference at the party’s Naya Paltan central office, he also said the EC unnecessarily bought time in disposing of the appeal of their chairperson against returning officer’s rejection of her nominations for Feni-1, Bogura-6 and 7 seats.Before the EC’s final order, Rizvi said Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader at a press conference in Noakhali said Khaleda Zia could not join the election legally while an Awami League delegation-led by Jahangir Kabir Nanak went to the commission to warn it about the matter. “Few hours later, the commission cancelled her nomination.”He alleged that the Awami League delegation went to the EC to ask it to reject Khaleda Zia’s appeal.On Saturday, the election commission upheld returning officers’ decisions cancelling the candidature of jailed BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia for forthcoming national election.Chief election commissioner KM Nurul Huda and three election commissioners –Rafiqul Islam, Kabita Khanam and Shahadat Hossain Chowdhury — rejected Khaleda’s appeals, while election commissioner Mahbub Talukder accepted her candidature.Rizvi said though there was no legal bar for Khaleda to joining the election, the EC made her ineligible for the election as part of a deep-rooted plot.He said the commission announced valid the nominations of many convicted candidates like Pankaj Debnatth, Haji Selim, Mohiuddin Khan Alamgir and Nazmul Huda. “Then why not of Begum Zia? The CEC cancelled Khaleda Zia’s nomination being dictated by the Sheikh Hasina (PM).”About demonstration by the supporters of their party’s aspirants who were not given party tickets, Rizvi hoped that they will end their protest soon and work as a team to ensure the victory of the party for having Khaleda Zia freed from jail. read more

Researchers have found that intake of some vitamins, minerals and other dietary supplements may not benefit heart and, in some cases, may even prove to be injurious. According to the study supplements combining calcium and vitamin D may be linked to a increased stroke risk. However, there was no evidence that calcium or vitamin D taken alone had any health risks or benefits. “Our analysis carries a simple message that although there may be some evidence that a few interventions have an impact on death and cardiovascular health, the vast majority of multivitamins, minerals and different types of diets had no measurable effect on survival or cardiovascular disease risk reduction,” said Safi U Khan, Assistant Professor at West Virginia University. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfFor the study, the researchers used data from 277 randomised clinical trials that evaluated 16 vitamins or other supplements and eight diets for their association with mortality or heart conditions including coronary heart disease, stroke and heart attack. The analysis showed possible health benefits only from a low-salt diet, omega-3 fatty acid supplements and possibly folic acid supplements for some people. “The panacea or magic bullet that people keep searching for in dietary supplements isn’t there,” said senior author of the study Erin Michos from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in the US. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”People should focus on getting their nutrients from a heart-healthy diet, because the data increasingly show that the majority of healthy adults don’t need to take supplements,” Michos said. According to Abhishek Singh, Consultant Cardiologist at Columbia Asia Hospital in Ghaziabad, dietary supplements do not have a measurably positive impact on cardiac health. “It’s more important to follow a healthy dietary regimen and avoid foods that are bad for the heart. Trans fatty acids are harmful and have to be curtailed. Refined sugars and simple carbohydrates are to be kept at a minimum,” said Singh. The doctor suggested that people should include more green vegetables in their diet. They are rich in vitamin K and dietary nitrates, which help protect the arteries and reduce blood pressure. “Studies like this raise concerns about harm from calcium and Vitamin D supplement use. As far as Vitamin D supplements are concerned, there has been no evidence on whether it has any impact on cardiovascular disease risk reduction,” said expert. read more
An elite Viking drinking hall, or pub, on a Scottish island has been unearthed. For several years a team of archaeologists from the University of the Highlands and Islands Archaeology Institute, local residents and students have been excavating a site at Skaill Farmstead in the town of Rousay on Orkney Island off the northeast point of Scotland. CNN Travel tells us that according to the project co-director Dr. Ingrid Mainland, “We have recovered a millennia of middens which will allow us an unparalleled opportunity to look at changing dietary traditions, farming and fishing practices from the Norse period up until the 19th century.” What they didn’t expect to find was a Viking drinking hall that dates back to sometime during the 10th to the 12th centuries.Skaill Norse Hall below present farmstead. Photo: UHI Archaeology InstituteIt was made of stone walls just over three feet thick about eighteen feet apart and a little over forty two feet long. The long walls had stone benches running the length. Who would have sat on those benches? The evidence points to it being a pub for the elites of Viking society.In the 9th century the Vikings used the Orkney Islands as a land base to support pirate expeditions against coastal Norway and Scotland. King Harald Fairhair of Norway seized the islands of Orkney and Shetland and set up an Earldom, a territory under the reign of an Earl – nobility of ancient Scotland – who ruled for an absent King.Skaill Norse Hall showing the northern outer wall. Photo: UHI Archaeology InstituteAccording to orkneyjar.com, the Orkneyinga saga, written sometime between 1192 and 1206 by an Icelandic author, tells us that the first Earl of Orkney was Sigurd Eysteinsson also known as Earl Sigurd the Powerful. He was sent to Orkney Island by King Harald Fairhair of Norway to capture not only Orkney Island but the Shetland and Western Islands as well.The saga claims that Sigurd Eysteinsson was a powerful and wise ruler but little else is known of his reign. It is known that at one time Earl Sigurd had formed an alliance with Thorstein the Red and they conquered Caithness and large parts of Argyll, Moray and Ross in Scotland. Because of their actions on the Scottish island, Earl Sigurd and a local magnate, Maelbrigte, became enemies.Map of the Orkney islands at the northern tip of Scotland. Contains Ordnance Survey data © Crown copyright and database right CC by SA-3.0In order to settle their differences, they scheduled a meeting in which each would bring forty men. Sigurd reneged on the deal and brought forty horses each with two riders. Maelbrigte advised his men of the betrayal and instructed them to take out two at a time. Regrettably, the Scots were outnumbered and Maelbrigte didn’t make it out alive. Sigurd had the head of Maelbrigte attached to his saddle to display his victory to all who saw him. As he galloped home, one of Maelbrigte’s teeth scratched Sigurd‘s leg. It became infected leading to Earl Sigurd the Powerful’s untimely karmic end.Related Video:While the Orkneyinga saga is believed to be mostly embellished, it did lead the archeology team to the site of the ancient hall on the land of the Skaill Farmstead presently owned by Russell and Kathryn Marwick and they are hoping to find a Norse settlement nearby.Some of the items dug up at the Viking drinking hall are post-medieval pottery and glass, metal objects, unglazed pottery, whetstones and slag used to smelt iron. A fragment of a Norse bone comb, pottery and soapstone from Shetland were also found. Previous excavations on the nearby island of Mainland turned up a hazelnut shell that has been dated to 6820–6660 BC and a settlement from 3500 BC was also discovered.Excavating the hall. Photo by UHI Archaeology InstituteThe project, part of the Landscapes of Change – Archaeologies of the Rousay Clearances and Westness Estate project, has stopped for the year and will resume digging next summer. Guests and volunteers are welcome and those who wish to help with test pit excavations will be given training. Children can also get involved digging small test pits, cleaning artifacts and participating in Living Archaeology activities. Those wishing to work on the dig to earn credits for advanced degrees in archaeology and related fields are also welcome and can apply at email@example.com.According to archaeologyorkney.com, the digs are financed by Rousay Heritage Trust, a charity founded to help with “the advancement of the education of the public in the history, culture, natural history and any other features of life in the island of Rousay, Orkney and the preservation for the public benefit of the historical, cultural and natural heritage of Rousay and of its sister islands, Egilsay and Wyre.”Related Article: Turns out the Irish have more Viking in them than Previously ThoughtStories, Stones and Bones gives out grants to non-profit groups in order to attract participants to discover their local heritage through archeology, studying culture and tradition and historical programs.

Earlier this year, six state and federal officials working in Coahuila were arrested on charges of protecting the Zetas.Neither the Moreira brothers nor Coahuila state Attorney General Homero Ramos responded to requests for comment.Humberto Moreira also often gets blamed for the violence.“Many people believe when Humberto Moreira became governor, he let the Zetas in,” said a 71-year-old retired movie theater worker in Sabinas. He also declined to be quoted by name out of fear of retaliation.The Moreira brothers now appear to be estranged, though neither has acknowledged that publicly. While Humberto Moreira said fighting drug cartels was the job of the federal government, his brother has gone after them aggressively with a special state police force. Some people speculate that the crackdown cost his nephew his life.The governor didn’t attend his nephew’s funeral, though he has said he will run down the killers to the full extent of the law.Diana Iris Garcia’s knows what it’s like to lose a son. Her 23-year-old disappeared in 2007 with his boss and another man on their way to a marble mine. She has worked since then to find out what happened, and says authorities have done little to investigate. In 2009, she was among the first to join Forces United for Our Disappeared in Coahuila, a group of people seeking justice for relatives that not too long ago had no reason to exist in the state. 5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes The state provides the latest snapshot of a bloody drug war that’s killed well over 50,000 people since 2006 and the nation’s uncertainty as President-elect Enrique Pena Nieto brings Mexico’s old ruling party back to power when he takes office Dec. 1.“It used to be really quiet here. The women would bring out their rocking chairs and stay up late, talking and playing bingo,” said a 31-year-old local television reporter, who didn’t want to be quoted by name because he has received threats. “Nobody does that anymore.”Drug cartels have always operated in Coahuila. But its mountainous terrain made large-scale smuggling difficult and unattractive to cartels warring for major transport arteries through Ciudad Juarez, Nuevo Laredo and Reynosa.As recently as 2006, the biggest narco news in Coahuila was a kiddie party in the town of Piedras Negras, across from Eagle Pass, Texas, allegedly sponsored by Gulf Cartel leader Osiel Cardenas Guillen, who sent bicycles, toys and a cake with “Happy Children’s Day, from your friend Osiel” written in icing.Lazcano started out in organized crime working for Cardenas, with his band of former army special forces serving as assassins for the Gulf Cartel. The two gangs didn’t split until 2010. But as early as 2008, residents of Progreso and nearby towns say they started to notice the arrival of very young, strange men, who rode around in caravans of pickups with large-caliber weapons and vests marked “Federal Police.”From their tattoos and beer drinking, locals knew the men weren’t police, especially when they started extorting used-car dealers, liquor stores, nightclubs and bars. Some farmers were even forced to grow marijuana for them.Now, the bloody headlines come almost daily.Earlier this month, a confrontation in Piedras Negras between state officers and suspected cartel members left five suspects dead, including the nephew of another top Zetas cartel leader, Miguel Angel Trevino Morales.Hours later, gunmen shot down state Gov. Ruben Moreira’s nephew, who is the son of Humberto Moreira, a former Coahuila governor and former head of Pena Nieto’s party. He preceded his brother as part of the political dynasty that runs the state, known as “Los Moreira.”The body of the 25-year-old, Jose Eduardo Moreira, was discovered Oct. 4 inside his pickup truck on a rural road on the outskirts of Ciudad Acuna, a town across the border from Del Rio, Texas. He had been shot twice in the head in what investigators believe was a revenge killing. Several police officers are suspected of involvement. Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Sponsored Stories “One time in a meeting with Humberto Moreira, we said we didn’t want one more person to suffer the pain we were going through,” said Iris, 55. “Sadly, it happened to him.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Lazcano was killed four days later when marines said they happened upon him by accident in Progreso. His body was later stolen by gunmen from a funeral home in the nearby town of Sabinas after marines left it unguarded. The Mexican navy said it didn’t know they had brought down a top capo, even though U.S. law enforcement officials say they had confirmed his identity before the body was stolen.Before the killing, residents had heard that Lazcano owned a ranch in the next town over from Progreso, with land butting up to the Sierra de Muzquiz mountains, where he could disappear if necessary. Lazcano’s co-leader, Trevino, is also rumored to use Coahuila as a hideout.When the AP tried to contact a miner who lives near the ranch, a relative replied by email: “Because most people have been threatened or extorted over the phone, and most likely the lines are tapped, he doesn’t feel comfortable sharing any information.”The violence has only stoked running political turmoil in the state. Humberto Moreira resigned as president of Pena Nieto’s Institutional Revolutionary Party in December because of the $3 billion in state debt racked up during his time as governor. The former state treasurer is on the run, and a close former aide is under investigation for amassing unexplained wealth. Associated PressPROGRESO, Mexico (AP) – Every Sunday, some 100 people gather for pick-up baseball games in a dusty open field marked only by a dirt mound and rusted bleachers. It’s the event of the week for this small northern Mexico town of 800 people where there is just one gas station and no supermarket, bank or high school.Despite the crowd, nobody is willing to admit they were there the afternoon of Oct. 7 or saw the shootout just outside the ball field in the heart of Coahuila state. Mexican marines gunned down Heriberto Lazcano, a founder and top leader of the Zetas drug cartel and the biggest kingpin netted so far in President Felipe Calderon’s six-year assault on organized crime. Comments Share Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Days later, no one would even admit to playing in the game. “We don’t like sports,” said one teenager waiting for his school bus last week when an Associated Press reporter asked him and his friends if they had played that Sunday. The players in the weekly games are largely in their teens.Some townspeople do say they heard the explosions from grenades that Lazcano reportedly tossed as he ran for his life, but insist that they were home at the time and that they thought it was fireworks.The reluctance to speak isn’t surprising.Cartel wars in neighboring states have made Coahuila a hideout for the Zetas, much like the remote “Golden Triangle” area of northwestern Mexico, where the world’s most-wanted drug lord, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, is rumored to seek cover.“Coahuila is for the Zetas what the Sierra Madre is for El Chapo … easily defensible, sparsely populated and relatively easy to get in and out of,” said security expert Samuel Logan, co-author of a recent book on the Zetas.Silence and fear govern Coahuila’s rugged mining and agricultural terrain, home to 95 percent of Mexico’s coal reserves.

Now that the Turkish elections are over, is the time to hear what Ankara has to say on the resumption of the Cyprus peace talks, Government Spokesman Prodromos Prodromou told the Cyprus News Agency on Monday.Invited to comment on the election result in relation to UN Secretary General’s initiative to resume reunification talks, he expressed the Greek Cypriot side’s readiness to take part in a fresh round of negotiations.“Now, there are no longer any negative factors,” he said.“The elections have taken place and we are waiting for Turkey to respond to the United Nations Secretary General’s (Antonio Guterres) initiative to establish its true intentions with regard to Cyprus,” Prodromou added.Nicosia, he said, would like to see if anything has changed in relation to public statements on the part of Turkey and whether negotiations can resume.In the recent past, Turkish government officials have expressed their intention to move away from a UN framework, relating to the resumption of the Cyprus peace talks.“The Greek Cypriot side is ready to return to the negotiating table.
