Google said that the barges will be used for educational purposes Top secret project overseen by Google founder Sergey Brin himself and his Google X team MailOnline hired a boat to get closer than anyone so far to investigate the mysterious... Three of the so-called ‘Google barges’ have been spotted in the waters near San Francisco, while TechCrunch claims there is at least one other off the coast of Portland, Maine. MailOnline got up close to one of the barges in California and was able to get a better idea of the floating vessel. Another, identical barge has been spotted thousands of miles away on the East Coast in Portland, Maine. Speculation was rampant over what the barges will be used for - with the two most likely reasons being floating showroom 'party boats' to market Google Glass or data centers that can be cooled by sea water.

Rusty the red panda's escape from a Washington D. C. zoo last month has prompted a new plan to inspect trees, bushes and other vegetation around every exhibit at the National Zoo. Now the limbs have been cut back, and the zoo has two cameras aimed at the red panda yard around the clock. Walkabout: Rusty the red panda, pictured, went missing from the zoo in Washington D. C in June. According to a zoo report on the escape obtained by The Associated Press following a public records request, the zoo has been investigating and observing Rusty ever since he was found in a nearby Washington neighborhood June 24. The report was... The zoo's investigation found Rusty likely escaped late June 23 or early June 24 through tree limbs hanging low in his exhibit after a rain. He returned to his public exhibit July 9 and spent the night outside for the first time Monday night with two keepers on duty to observe his behavior. Home: Rusty, pictured, returned from his trip to the Adams Morgan neighborhood and went back to his enclosure (pictured getting a check up in June).
A suspected shoplifter is vying for the title of America's dumbest criminal - after being caught stealing a clock from a police station. As a detective watched from outside the room Marquez reached up and took a clock off the interview room wall and stuffed it into his backpack. While left alone in the interview room Marquez reached up and took the clock. Marquez faces an additional charge of petit theft for stealing the clock.
“To omit numbers and have an abstract object that moved on the wall was something no one was doing at the time,” he says. Once or twice a year he would design a group of about eight clocks, which would then be presented to Howard Miller and put into ...
