Dazed Bigfoot Crossed California Highway 101 During Fires

Today The Willets News reported there was a Bigfoot sighting on Highway 101 north of Willets near Shimmins Ridge Road during the Mendocino Lightning Complex fires last summer. Willets is a small town in Northern California between the San Francisco Bay Area and Eureka.

According to reporter Linda Williams, Chris LoPinto of Laytonville and at least one other driver saw the creature step into the southbound lane near a guardrail. It ran into the path of a small truck and caused LoPinto to brake hard. The truck, which was trying to pass LoPinto’s car, managed to avoid hitting the Bigfoot and continued on without stopping.

LoPinto said the Bigfoot ran upright on its legs until it got to the middle of the highway which was four lanes at that point. Then it leaned over and ran with its arms down the rest of the way, to safety. Bigfoot investigator Tom Yamarone told the reporter that the fact the Bigfoot used its arms to cross the second half of the freeway was highly unusual.

At that point some might think the creature was a bear, but LoPinto got a good look at the face – the Bigfoot was only 25 feet away.

The description:
Estimated at seven feet tall.
It was covered with hair.
The face was completely flat, without a protruding nose.
When it turned to look at LoPinto its neck was stiff so it turned its entire body.
Its face was yellow or gold like a ripe banana.
It had a smooth, shiny forehead with ridges and no eyebrows.
The eyes glowed red, possibly as a reflection from the car’s headlights.
It had thin lips.
It had a simian face.
It appeared to be suffering from heat and heavy smoke from the fire.

LoPinto filed reports with the Department of Fish and Game and with the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Department. At first he didn’t realize it was a Bigfoot. Eventually he got hold of Tom Yamarone to investigate.

WikiLeaks and Pentagon Disagree About Talks
By THOM SHANKER

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon on Wednesday rebutted statements by the WikiLeaks organization that the Defense Department had expressed a willingness to discuss reviewing a trove of classified documents before public release.

“The Department of Defense will not negotiate some ‘minimized’ or ‘sanitized’ version of a release by WikiLeaks of additional U.S. government classified documents,” Jeh C. Johnson, the Pentagon general counsel, wrote in a letter to a lawyer representing WikiLeaks, the online whistle-blowing organization. The letter was dated Monday but was provided by Defense Department officials on Wednesday.

Earlier in the day, Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks.org, was quoted by The Associated Press as having said the Pentagon had agreed to negotiations over how to redact the files to remove names and information that might harm individuals, in a process leading to the eventual release of more documents by his organization.

Adding to the dispute, the Pentagon letter — addressed to Timothy J. Matusheski, a lawyer who works pro bono for WikiLeaks — said Mr. Johnson and Mr. Matusheski had agreed to speak by telephone at 10 a.m. last Sunday about the Defense Department’s official position. Despite his consent to the conversation, the WikiLeaks lawyer did not answer the phone, Mr. Johnson wrote in the Pentagon letter.

Mr. Matusheski disputed the Pentagon’s version of events, beyond confirming that he had discussed a review of the documents with an Army criminal investigator. “You could tell us what stuff is critical — tell us what to redact,” he said in a phone interview, describing his end of that conversation. Mr. Matusheski said, however, that he had not asked for an appointment and had never agreed to a specific time to discuss the issue with senior government officials.

Mr. Assange told The Associated Press that he had received information through his lawyer that Pentagon lawyers “want to discuss the issue.”

Geoff Morrell, the Pentagon press secretary, said WikiLeaks “misrepresented both the level of engagement we have had as well as our position on this matter.”

The policy has not changed, he said: “We are willing to discuss with them how they can return the stolen documents and expunge them from their records.”

The New York Times, the British newspaper The Guardian and the German magazine Der Spiegel, after being given early access by WikiLeaks, published excerpts from an archive of 77,000 classified documents, but excluded those that identified individuals or compromised operations. At the administration’s request, The Times also forwarded a request to WikiLeaks not to post online any documents that would put informants in jeopardy.

WikiLeaks has said it plans to release 15,000 more documents soon. An Army intelligence analyst, Pfc. Bradley E. Manning, has been charged with downloading volumes of classified information from a computer at his base east of Baghdad and sending it to WikiLeaks.

North Korea Confirms Detention of South Korean Boat
By CHOE SANG-HUN

SEOUL — North Korea confirmed on Thursday that it was holding a South Korean fishing boat and its seven-man crew, 11 days after the craft was detained by the North Korean navy off the east coast of the divided Korean Peninsula.

The crew — four South Koreans and three Chinese — “confessed” to fishing illegally in North Korean waters on Aug. 8, the North’s state-run news agency, KCNA, reported.

The agency report did not clarify whether or when North Korea would release the crew. South Korea had been asking the North to free the crew, but until Thursday, Pyongyang had not even acknowledged the ship’s capture.

The incident came amid high tension between the two Koreas following the March 26 sinking of a South Korean warship. The South blames the North for the sinking, which killed 46 sailors, while the North denies it.

South Korea and the United States are currently holding their second joint military exercise in a month. They plan to conduct a new anti-submarine exercise next month in waters off the peninsula’s west coast, where the warship sank. North Korea vowed to retaliate, calling the drills warmongering.

Intel to Buy McAfee for $7.7 Billion
Intel said on Thursday that it has agreed to buy McAfee, the computer antivirus software maker, for about $7.7 billion in cash, as the chip giant seeks to expand its presence in security services.

Under the terms of the deal, Intel will pay $48 a share in cash, a 60 percent premium to McAfee’s Wednesday closing stock price of $29.93.

The move signals Intel’s biggest effort to date to expand beyond its core chip-making business. The purchase is Intel’s biggest since its acquisition of Level One Communications for $2.2 billion in 1999.

“In the past, energy-efficient performance and connectivity have defined computing requirements,” Paul Otellini, Intel’s chief executive, said in a statement. “Looking forward, security will join those as a third pillar of what people demand from all computing experiences.”

The tech industry has been among the busiest for deal-makers over the past year, as the giants in the field have sought to deploy their big war chests to move into new sectors.

With its McAfee purchase, Intel is gaining an entrance into the security tech sector, one that is expected to continue growing quickly. Based in Santa Clara, Calif., McAfee reported about $2 billion in revenue last year.

Intel was advised by Goldman Sachs and the law firm Morrison & Foerster. McAfee was advised by Morgan Stanley and the law firm Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati.

Police officer trapped in car by 50,000 bees
A police officer was trapped in his patrol car for three hours after 50,000 angry honeybees descended on his vehicle.

By Nick Allen, Los Angeles
Published: 7:19PM BST 18 Aug 2010

Sheriff’s Deputy Brandon Jenkins, 31, had been called to the scene of a broken down lorry in North Carolina. The lorry was pulling a trailer loaded with 60 boxes of bees and the insects had escaped.

Officer Jenkins arrived at day break just as the bees were waking up and they swarmed him, forcing him to retreat to his car and radio for assistance.

“It was mind boggling how many bees were out there. At some point, it was hard to see out of the windows,” he said.

The officer admitted using deadly force on some of the insects who got in.

“It was more or less self-defence. There were a couple of bees in my personal space, my comfort zone, and I just wanted to get them out.”

At one point he drove the car down the road but that failed to dislodge the bees.

Police called in two beekeepers who used smoke and sugar water spray to calm the insects and then collected them. They said the bees had been attracted by the light colour of the patrol car.

Beekeeper Charles Heatherly said: “The bees were hot and bothered.

They got a little testy.” Jennifer Keller, a honeybee technician at North Carolina State University, said: “The were just very confused. They don’t have a queen to guard and they were kind of lost.”

CFZ: Hairs Found at Huddisford Woods, Devon Identified as Leopard

Jon Downes at CFZ: Still On The Track, posted the following:

On Friday morning, in front of a number of witnesses and a Danish TV crew, Lars Thomas - a Danish scientist with a high reputation - analysed a number of black hairs on brambles and thorns at Huddisford Woods. Some of these hairs were found by him, and some by Andrew Perry, Nadia Novali and their friends.

The CFZ have been actively studying the big cat reports from this area since 2005, and for the last 18 months have been making a feature-length film there.

Max and I drove the team to Huddisford Woods on Friday and showed them three of the places that the big cats have been seen. We did not tell them specifically where to look and the Danish TV crew will, I am sure corroborate this.

After microscopic analysis, and comparison with known leopard hairs, Lars identified the hairs found in the woods as being from a leopard. The analysis was carried out in front of representatives of the CFZ (including president Colonel John Blashford-Snell), and was filmed both by CFZtv and the aforementioned Danish TV crew.

The video of the examination will be released as soon as we have time to digitise it (probably in a few days). Conspiracy theorists will no doubt claim that we will use this time to somehow doctor the results. This is just not true: the examination was filmed on our Sony PD150 and we have to digitise the DV Tapes which has to be done in real time, and we just have not had the time to do it.

Lars Thomas is not just an old friend of the CFZ, but he has been a core member since 1994. Several other people in the party that found the hairs are also CFZ members. The CFZ have therefore proved that there are big cats living wild in this country. However, in view of recent events we would like these findings corroborated. We have 25-30 of these hairs, and will make them available to anyone who has the resources and expertise to test them, including - if they wish to participate - the Big Cats in Britain research group, who have made no secret of their animosity towards us.

There are two provisos:

1. That the results (including any reports, films or photographs) are immediately put into the public domain
2. That the hairs are returned intact to the CFZ

OK guys it is up to you.
