Construction worker killed on set of Blade Runner 2

http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-37219982

A construction worker has been killed on the set of the sequel to Blade Runner, which was filming in Budapest.

A statement from the film's production company Alcon Entertainment confirmed the accident occurred on a soundstage at Origo Studios.

It said the worker was "underneath a platform, upon which the set was constructed, when it suddenly collapsed".
The cause of the accident is not yet known.

A Hungarian news website, Index, reported the worker had been dismantling the set as production had already moved to another location.

The untitled sequel to Blade Runner, which will star Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford and Jared Leto, is due to be released next autumn.

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- Deputies in South Carolina have increased patrols after getting new reports of people dressed as clowns trying to lure children into the woods.

News outlets report that Greenville County sheriff's deputies were called to an apartment complex about 8:20 p.m. Monday that is about 20 minutes from a complex where people reporting seeing clowns last week.

Deputies responding to the report last week said they found no evidence of anyone in the woods behind Fleetwood Manor Apartments.

A family who called Monday night from Emerald Commons apartments said a child saw a man wearing a clown mask in woods near the complex.

Deputies said there was a third report of someone dressed as a clown about 10 p.m. at Shemwood Apartments.

A 12-year-old told deputies that two clowns were in the backyard area.

Woman murders "possessed" daughter by forcing crucifix down her throat

I meant to put this in news but screwed up.

http://www.news9.com/story/32867428/okc-mother-accused-of-murdering-daughter-goes-before-judge

The affidavit states Gomez told investigators her daughter was possessed by the devil - and that she admitted to punching her daughter repeatedly and forcing a crucifix and religious medallion down her throat.

It states Gomez had very swollen hands and that she told investigators those bruises were from her daughter “fighting her attempts to rid Satan” from her daughter's body.

Court papers also state Gomez saw her daughter die and then placed her body in the shape of a cross. Now Gomez remains locked up in jail, while her family deals with the devastating aftermath.

Alien signals detected? probably not but still interesting

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3763416/Is-Earth-contacted-ALIENS-Mystery-radio-signals-coming-sun-like-star-baffle-scientists.html

A spike in radio signals coming from the direction of a sun-like star has excited astronomers.

The signals seem to be originating from a sun-like star known as HD 164595 in the constellation Hercules, around 95 light years away.

Scientists suggest they are likely to be the result of a natural phenomenon, such as 'microlensing', in which the star's gravity strengthens and focus signals from elsewhere.

But astronomers have also asked Seti (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) to take a closer look at whether they could be a message from ET.

SETI will track HD 164595 tonight using the Allen Telescope Array in northern California and the Boquete Optical SETI Observatory in Panama.

Update: My wife's surgery did NOT exactly fail

You may recall this thread:

http://www.discussionist.com/10216302

Where it was determined my wife's Achalasia surgery had failed. Well it turns out that was not exactly correct. She had a scope down her throat Friday and once they were able to eyeball it what was finally determined was her Lower Esophageal Sphincter is actually open What is wrong is she has a nasty case of Esophagitis, which is a situation in which there is severe inflammation due to stomach acid coming back up through the LES. Basically she has severe acid reflux. Due to the death of the nerves, she never felt it. They had taken her off of all of her post surgical meds due to a severe allergic reaction which we were never able to pinpoint. Well she's back on them now, and we're keeping our fingers crossed. We're fairly certain she will need what is called a Fundoplication, which is when they go back in and make a little flap to prevent stomach acid from coming back up into her throat, but that can only happen once this heals. That and the surgery has caused a hiatal hernia, which we will have to address.

Anybody here brew/winemake?

My better half and I just spent all day picking 10 gallons each of pears and apples. We are making cider out of each. We also got the fermentation unstuck from 20 pounds of blueberries a friend of ours who owns a berry farm up in Maine brought to us. Lastly a friend's father who is an avid vintner gave us one of his failures; 6 gallons of pumpkin wine. We added pie spice and are making brandy out of it. We shall see. So far so good.
