Facebook troll Bradley Paul Hampson seeks bail, appeal against jail term

___________________________________________________________________________________ . .
THE first Australian convicted of "internet trolling" by plastering child pornography on the Facebook tribute pages of two slain Queensland schoolchildren is seeking bail pending an appeal against his three-year jail term.
Lawyers for Bradley Paul Hampson, 29, this morning told The Courier-Mail an application had been lodged by their client for Supreme Court bail pending an appeal against his sentence.
Last month Hampson fronted the the Brisbane District Court for posting offensive messages and photos on Facebook "RIP tribute" pages for a 12-year-old boy stabbed at a Brisbane school and a nine-year-old Bundaberg girl abducted and murdered in February last year.
Hampson, of Tarragindi, on Brisbane's southside, pleaded guilty to two counts of using a carriage service, the internet, to cause offence and one each of distributing and possessing child exploitation material - meaning child pornography - between February 14 and June 4 last year.

Prosecutors said Hampson posted photographs of one victim with a penis drawn near their mouth and highly offensive messages, including "Woot I'm Dead", "Had It Coming" and others too offensive to publish.
The court was told the deaths of both children received extensive media coverage; however, under Queensland law neither child could be identified.
Prosecutor Anthony Gett said Hampson used the pseudonym of "Dale Angerer" to engage in internet "trolling" - which means to post inflammatory, extraneous or off-topic messages in an "online community".

"These posts (by Hampson) were designed to offend all of the members (of the tribute sites)."He was mocking the deaths of these children in a highly sexual manner.''
Barrister Carl Heaton, for Hampson, said his client's actions could be construed as those of ``an appalling human being''.

However, he said Hampson, who was autistic, was retaliating against people who had been offensive toward him and a Facebook site designed to assist autistic people.

#3 Union Steam-Rolls Hermann: Mid Missouri High School Football

_________________________________________________________________________
Bearcats at Wildcats
 September 14, 2011
__________________________________________________________________________

By Bill Battle Missourian Sports Editor
 
Coming close to reaching another school record, the Union Wildcats turned up the scoring Friday night to defeat Hermann on homecoming, 70-14.
Union’s program record for most points in a game came against Hermann in 2007 during a 77-55 win. The Wildcats (4-0, 2-0) nearly repeated that feat against Hermann (0-4, 0-4). However, Hermann’s offense couldn’t keep up.
The Wildcats really turned on the heat during a 1:22 span late in the second quarter, scoring 21 points during that time. That turned a 21-6 game into a 48-6 rout by the halftime festivities.
Union never trailed in the game and started the scoring with a three-yard run by Steven Jones with 7:26 left in the first quarter. The extra-point kick failed, bouncing off the left upright, and Union led, 6-0.
The Wildcats were back in action when Chris Savage connected with Tyler Johnson for a 53-yard touchdown pass with 5:10 to go in the quarter. Ryan Coons ran for the two-point conversion to make it 14-0.
Hermann fumbled on its first play from scrimmage after the kickoff, another recurring theme on the night, and the Wildcats took advantage of the short field to score again with 3:14 to play in the quarter. Coons caught a four-yard pass from Savage for the score. The extra-point kick failed and it was 20-0 at the end of one quarter.
Hermann got on the board early in the second quarter. Nick Koenig caught a 12-yard pass from Justin Wurtz with 11:08 left in the half. The Bearcats attempted a two-point run, but failed. Union’s lead was cut to 21-6.
Union got right back to work. Moving down the field on a pass from Savage to Tyler King, the Wildcats got a big run by Ryan Baser up the field to the one-yard line. Baser scored on the next play from one yard out and Savage hit Coons for the conversion to make it 28-6.
Union’s big run hit late in the half. Baser scored from 13 yards out with 3:48 left in the half. Logan Williams kicked the extra point and Union was up, 35-6.
Hermann again fumbled the ball deep in its own territory, and that set up a 16-yard pass from Savage to Narvell Smith with 2:48 left in the half. Williams kicked the extra point to make it 42-6.
After Williams returned an interception to the Hermann 20, Jones ran in for the final score of the half from 20 yards out with 2:26 left. Williams kicked the extra point to make it 49-6.
Even with the running clock in the second half, Union still found time to score 21 more points while Hermann added another score.
Union hosts Ft. Zumwalt East next week. The Wildcats lost their only regular season game to Zumwalt East last season on a play in the closing seconds. Hermann hosts Owensville in a Four Rivers Conference game which also is the Gasconade County Bowl. Kickoff both places will be at 7 p.m.

Hermann then fumbled deep in their own territory on their 3rd possession and Union recovered.

Union took advantage of the short field and and scored their third TD on a pass from QB Savavge to Ryan Coons but again failed to convert a PAT.  This gave Union a 20-0 lead in the 1st Quarter.

Hermann starting on their own 20, then again appeared to fail to get a first down until they faked a punt on their 5th series.  The Bearcats did manage 4 more first downs, 80 yards total and scored on 13 yard TD pass by QB Justin Wurtz to 53 early in the 2nd Quarter.  This was one of the most impressive drives to-date for the Bearcat Offense.   Union lead was 20-6 as Hermann failed to convert a 2 point conversion.

Lost and Found v.s. Finders Keepers Losers Weepers: Local Softball Mom and Daughter Get Wonderful 300 Dollar Surprise

Lost and Found v.s. Finders Keepers Losers Weepers:
Local Softball Mom and Daughter Get Wonderful 300 Dollar Surprise

By Poor Richard
September 16, 2011
__________________________________________________________________________

Work, college classes, after-school activities for the kids, housework, etc...there never seems to be enough hours in the day for a Mom constantly on the go!!!

Then there is the cost of running a houseful of kids, especially for a Single Mom...never enough money to do everything...yet Moms' do it every day, seldom to complain.  Mother's deserve more breaks than they usually get!!!

Which brings me to the point of this story.  A story of a local, Single Mom, who, this last week, caught a wonderful break.

Earlier this week Facebook Friend Wendi Busch posted and commented on her FB Wall the following (in her own words):

Wendi Busch
POST:
What a Monday! Thanks to the nice person in Owensville that found my daughters softball bag & turned it in to the school! Happy to know a $120 glove is not lost forever.

COMMENT:
by Wendi Busch:
Yes that made a hectic morning seem a lot better! That would have been $300 gone. She was pretty upset to not have cleats, a bat, or glove this morning!

COMMENT:
by Wendi Busch:
ya I felt pretty lucky! I knew it was long gone but I called the Owensville High School and they said someone had turned it in to them & they would deliver it to us on Tuesday. So glad nobody decided to keep it! My son lost a glove in Rhineland last year and we left the field drove to the end of 94 turned around went straight back and it was gone never to be seen again. So I was thankful!

Just as promised the bag and gear were delivered safe and sound!!!

Wendi later informed me that:

"We tried finding out who returned it so we could thank her but the school didn't know. We are going to publish a Thank You in the Owensville paper."

I think everyone reading this would agree, it's a great thing to see, that there still are people in the world that do the honest thing, without expecting nor seeking recognition or anything else in return.  A Great Lesson for ALL!!! God Bless Them!!!

Thank you for sharing this wonderful story Wendi and we wish you and your children the best!!!

NFL or No Fans Left: NFL wants pat-downs from ankles up at all stadiums

_________________________________________________________________________
Vote: Agree with NFL's head-to-toe pat-downs this season?
Sep 16, 2011 
usatoday.com
__________________________________________________________________________

USA TODAY's Game On! broke the news Thursday that the NFL wants head-to-toe searches for all fans this year to improve safety inside stadiums.
HEAD-TO-TOE:  NFL wants all 16 million fans frisked from ankles up
The stricter physical screenings could be reassuring to fans worried about safety -- especially after Sunday's stun gun incident at a Jets-Cowboys game. Others are likely to regard it as an invasion of privacy.

The NFL wants all fans patted down from the ankles up this season to improve fan safety.
Under the new "enhanced" pat-down procedures, the NFL wants all 32 clubs to search fans from the ankles to the knees as well as the waist up. Previously, security guards only patted down fans from the waist up while looking for booze, weapons or other banned items.
The stricter physical screening policy impacts the 16.6 million fans expected to attend live regular season NFL games this season. The more thorough searches will spell longer lines for ticket-holding fans seeking entry to games. It's sure to raise the ire of some fans who consider it an invasion of privacy.
The NFL recommended the new guidelines before the kickoff of the 2011 season which coincided with the 10th anniversary of 9/11. The league hopes fans will be "patient," says spokesman Brian McCarthy, and arrive earlier to games to avoid long, punishing lines.
"The enhanced security procedures recommended by our office before the start of the season will further increase the safety of fans but will require some additional time," McCarthy told USA TODAY in a statement Thursday. "We encourage fans to come early, enjoy their tailgating tradition, and be patient as they enter the stadium."
The NFL suffered damage to its family-friendly image when a South Carolina man was arrested for using an illegal stun gun on other fans at a New York Jets-Dallas Cowboys game Sunday night.

Netflix Price Increase Horror Show: 600,000 Fewer U.S. Customers

_________________________________________________________________________

Netflix customers vote with their feet on hike

Associated Press 
September 16, 2011

__________________________________________________________________________

Netflix's decision to raise prices by as much as 60 percent is turning into a horror show.
The customer backlash against the higher rates, kicking in this month, has been much harsher than Netflix Inc. anticipated. That prompted management to predict Thursday that the company —the largest U.S. video subscription service— will end September with 600,000 fewer U.S. customers than it had in June.
It will mark just the second time in 12 years that Netflix has lost subscribers from one quarter to the next. The last downturn occurred during 2007 when Netflix lost a mere 55,000 from March through June.
The current hemorrhaging exacerbated fears that Netflix is losing the magic touch that increased its stock tenfold in the three years leading up to the company's July 12 announcement about its higher prices.
Since then, Netflix has turned into Wall Street's equivalent of a box-office flop. Its shares plunged $39.46, or about 19 percent, to close at $169.25 Thursday, leaving Netflix's stock price more than 40 percent below where it stood before the company unveiled the higher prices. The cost to shareholders so far: more than $6 billion in paper losses.

Missouri Student Loan Default Rate Climbs Higher

Student loan default rate climbs in Missouri


 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS 
September 16, 2011

__________________________________________________________________________

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. • More Missourians are defaulting on their student loans.
The Department of Higher Education says Missouri's default rate rose from 5.8 percent in 2008 to 7.6 percent in 2009. However, officials say the default rate in Missouri was less than the national average of 8.8 percent.
The department says more than 84,000 people in Missouri were paying back student loans, with about 6,500 in default. Those figures count borrowers whose first loan payments were due between October 2008 and September 2009 and who stopped making payments by the end of last September.
