Rep. Vargas releases statement on what he saw outside the Capitol during lockdown incident

Today, Congressman Juan Vargas, D-San Diego, made the following statement after experiencing the incident that unfolded outside of the Capitol. “I was outside walking back to the Capitol when I heard a ‘pop, pop’. I thought the sounds were nothing more than a car backfiring, until I looked up to see a Capitol Police Officer charging at me yelling, ‘Stop, stop!’ Upon getting closer, he noticed my Congressional Pin, asked me if I was a Member of Congress and instructed me to show him my ID. Once the officer had verified my identity, I was told to remove my pin because I could be a potential target. “At that moment, I realized something was terribly wrong and asked him what was happening. I was informed that shots had been fired and that two officers were down. It was at that instant that I realized that the popping sounds I had previously heard were gun shots, not a car backfiring. Seconds later there were numerous officers with machine guns surrounding the area where I was standing, and I was sheltered in place.”

Why Employers Won't Name a Salary Range First

It's one of the biggest frustrations of job-seekers: employers who advertise a job but refuse to say what it pays. Adding to the frustration, many of them expect job-seekers to name the salary they're looking for - some even requiring it before an application can be submitted online. This, of course, puts applicants in an incredibly unfair position, and makes most of them worry that they'll lowball themselves or ask for so much that they'll be removed from the running. It's particularly infuriating when you consider that most employers have a salary range budgeted for the position. They just won't disclose it. So why do employers make such a secret out of what they're willing to pay? What not just list a salary range up-front in the job ad? Employers who play coy on salary will tell you that it's because if they list a salary range, all candidates will assume they should be at the top of the range ... and will then get upset or be disappointed if their offer comes in lower because of the level of their qualifications. In other words, if an employer advertises that a job pays $50,000 to $60,000, they fear that every applicant will think, "Great, low 60s. That works for me." But if an applicant ends up getting an offer for $52,000 because that's where his or her experience places him or her, he or she will feel that he or she is being lowballed because, after all, he or she knows the employer is willing to pay up to $60,000. The applicant may have been happy with that offer if he or she had never heard about the full range available. Now, a good employer will be able to explain how the scale works and why the candidate fits into it where he or she does. But employers who don't want to disclose their full range believe that too many people still won't be satisfied, and that they'll be creating dissatisfaction that otherwise wouldn't exist. And that's not all employers worry about. Sometimes they don't want to list a range in their ads because they'd be willing to pay more for the right candidate - but not for most. For instance, if they list a salary range of $50,000 to $60,000, the candidate who won't consider anything below $70,000 might never apply. And if that person is good enough, the employer might be willing to meet those salary demands. But since they wouldn't pay it to most candidates, they don't want to put it in the ad. As a result, they conclude it's better not to list a range at all. So what can candidates do in the face of so many employers who won't reveal the salary for a job, when salary happens to be a major consideration for most job-seekers? One key is to know what jobs like the ones you're applying for typically pay. You can often get a solid sense by talking with recruiters, checking with professional organizations in your industry and even just bouncing figures off of other people in your field. Once you come up with a range for your experience level and in your geographic area, you can feel more confident naming a salary figure first, without the worry that you'll be wildly off in either direction. And second, assume that at some point the employer is likely to ask you about what salary you're looking for, without telling you their own range first. Too often, job-seekers assume that the employer will name a figure first and they can then respond to it - but by knowing that often isn't the case, you'll be better prepared, less likely to be caught off-guard, and more equipped to negotiate a fair salary for yourself.

Florida Man Dies of Bacterial Infection After Crabbing in River

Florida health officials have warned beach-goers to avoid wading into the water with open wounds and eating raw or undercooked seafood after a man died of a bacterial infection hours after crabbing. Henry "Butch" Konietzky, 59, was crabbing in Halifax River when he was exposed to vibrio vulnificus, a bacterium normally found in warm seawater, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal. "I am actually really shocked," nearby resident Kamryn Eversole told WFTV, ABC News' affiliate in Orlando and Daytona Beach, Fla. "I'm in this water all the time and I guess I would have been more careful if I had known this earlier." Read about 7 foods most likely to make you sick. The bacteria causes blood infections in people who go into the water with open wounds or who eat raw or undercooked seafood, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. More than 70 percent of people who become infected have "distinctive bulbous skin lesions," and about half of vibrio vulnificus infections are fatal. In Konietzky's case, he became infected when he waded out into the water with open wounds, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal. His daughter told the newspaper that Konietzky had lesions on his legs a few hours after crabbing, prompting his wife to take him to the hospital. But it was too late and he died hours later of kidney failure. There have been 26 cases of vibrio vulnificus statewide this year, including nine deaths, according to WFTV.

Soon to be Bride gets her final wish.

A wedding planner will make a final dream come true for a San Jose bride this Saturday.

Jen Bulik and her boyfriend, Jeff Lang, were looking at wedding rings in December when Bulik developed a cough she couldn't shake. 

"I went to the doctors a couple times and they diagnosed me with pneumonia," she told NBC Bay Area. "I mean, I'm 35, so they weren't thinking it was something else."

But in January, Bulik was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer. In June, she was told she had four to six months to live.

"When I heard that, I said, 'Let's get married,'" said Bulik. "Because I wanted to focus on life." 

Bulik and Lang planned a simple backyard barbecue until a friend logged on to a message board for wedding planners and posted their story, asking for a miracle. That's when local planner Erica Ota stepped in.

"Honestly, I didn't event think twice about it," Ota told HuffPost. "We have the opportunity to do something extraordinary for someone else almost every day, but we get so wrapped up in our daily lives that we don't see them. I wanted to do something extraordinary." 

And extraordinary it is: After seeing Bulik's dream wedding inspiration Pinterest board, Ota used her connections to get her entire dream wedding donated –- all $52,000 of it.

"We have 40 different vendors participating," she said. "As soon as I reached out with their story, people were so willing to help."

Wedding details will include a photo booth, a taco station and barbecue, a New Orleans-style jazz band, floral arrangements and more. And everything was planned while Bulik was in the hospital. 

"I was in awe," Bulik told HuffPost. "The bouquets just arrived this morning and it's exactly what I put on Pinterest. It is unbelievable that people have stepped up and done this. It's magical."

Bulik and Lang will say vows at a park down the street from Bulik's childhood home, surrounded by a circle of friends and family. After that, the jazz band will lead the party back to her parents' home.

"All of the neighbors know about the plan so they're turning the street into a parade route," said Ota. "Everyone's putting out balloons and decorations."

"I could never have done this with my health," she said. "But because of the generosity of others, we're going to be able to focus on declaring our love for one another in a way we never dreamed possible."

The upcoming wedding has reminded Ota why she's in the business. 

"It will be one of the most fun weddings I've done in a long time because it's all about celebrating life and love," Bulik said. "And that's really what it's all about."  Via Huffingtonpost

Ray-J takes shots at Kim K. and Kanye

Well, this is Ray J's cover artwork for his new single "I Hit It First," which seems to be about his ex-girlfriend KIM KARDASHIAN who is the ex-girlfriend of NFL baller Reggie Bush,soon-to-be ex-wife of NBA player Kris Humphries, and now Kanye West's baby mama to-be.

Guess Ray J wants to make it clear that he was the first to discover KiKi's precious Armenian cakes before anyone else in his new song "I Hit It First."

Copying Kanye West's blurred artwork on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,Ray J did the same with an image of a bikini-clad Kim Kardashian.

The lyrics of "I Hit It First" are rumored to go a little something like this:

Ray J just doesn't quit does he?

We're wondering how Kim's going to take RAY J'S LATEST JAB, but we guess she has better things to worry about, like HER UNBORN CHILD or making fashion's "worst dressed" list.

The song is set to drop April 9.

What are your thoughts on Ray J's new cover art?

Hilarious or petty?

Share your thoughts below!

And some bonus photos/food for thought...

X marks the spot: A real treasure hunt.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A collection of gold and jewels that a retired Santa Fe art dealer says he stashed in the mountains north of Santa Fe has generated so much interest from amateur treasure hunters that some have put their lives in jeopardy or been cited for illegally digging on public lands.

But authorities are warning people about more than being careful and following the law. They also note finders may not be keepers.

"If this treasure is buried, you would need to dig for it. And you can't dig anywhere in a national forest without a permit," said Bruce Hill, spokesman for the Santa Fe National Forest. "Even if it is not buried and it is just placed somewhere it becomes public domain."

Ditto for state lands, according to Department of Game and Fish spokesman Dan Williams.

Forrest Fenn was asked if he had considered land rights before hiding the chest. He said in an email that much has been written about land laws.

"I'm staying out of those discussions, except to say it may be fun to redefine some of the terms," Fenn said in the email.

The poem that Fenn published in his memoir, "The Thrill of the Chase," to give clues to the chest's whereabouts advises the treasure finder to "Look quickly down, your quest to cease, But tarry scant with marvel gaze, Just take the chest and go in peace."

But authorities currently seem to be more concerned about public safety than ownership questions as publicity about Fenn's claims to have hidden the 40-plus pound chest filled with gold coins, gold nuggets and ancient jewelry draws people to the northern New Mexico mountains.

Last month, a woman from Texas got lost in the mountains near Los Alamos overnight after seeing reports about the treasure on national television. But she was found safe the next day.

And Williams said the state plans to file charges against a man found digging last month under a descanso along the upper Pecos River last month. A descanso is a marker where someone has died or ashes scattered. Williams says the man told officers he was digging for Fenn's treasure.

Forest officials are urging treasure hunters to check with their office before setting out to make sure they have the proper gear and know the best places to go, Hill said.

"One of the concerns that we had is that this might invite people that really aren't familiar with traveling in a forest," Hill said. "They could get lost. They could step and stumble and turn an ankle ... maybe put themselves in a situation where they have to be rescued and maybe put other people's lives at risk."

Fenn said he has also posted caution notices on his web site and several blogs.

"Flatlanders don't realize how dangerous it can be," he said.

'Gate to Hell' unearthed among Turkey's ancient ruins

Archaeologists say they have pinpointed an ancient – and lethal – cave that was once believed to be the entrance to the underworld. Working at the World Heritage Site of Hierapolis in southwestern Turkey, Francesco D'Andria of the Italian University of Salento and his team found a cave featuring Ionic semi columns with inscriptions dedicated to Pluto and Kore, the underworld's deities. D'Andria and his team also found the remains of a temple, a pool, and multiple steps placed above the cave, which is said to closely fit the ancient writings on the site.

Baby born after parents killed in car wreck on way to NY hospital

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Orthodox Jews overflowed a New York synagogue and poured onto the streets on Sunday to mourn the death of a young couple killed in a car accident on their way to the hospital to have their first baby, who survived after delivery by C-section.

Meanwhile police continued their intensive search for a hit-and-run driver and a passenger who fled the midnight accident that killed the mother, Raizi Gluber, and father, Nathan Gluber, both 21-year-old Orthodox Jews from a close-knit enclave in Williamsburg, in the borough of Brooklyn.

The baby boy, reported by police to be in serious condition, had yet to be named, a family friend said.

Mourners overflowed the funeral conducted in Hebrew at a Williamsburg synagogue while about 200 more assembled in the street, where pallbearers carried a pair of caskets draped in black velvet from the synagogue to a pair of awaiting vehicles that drove them away.

The deaths devastated the Orthodox community in Williamsburg, where the accident occurred and where people were thinking of the child's well-being, said family friend and community leader Isaac Abraham.

"How can the community react? It's a shock. It's like a punch in the gut," said Abraham, who has known the deceased mother's parents since childhood. "People are not prepared for this. Parents are not prepared to bury their children."

All the men speaking at the service sobbed or wailed during their eulogies, and nearly all the women were in tears.

Investigators launched what a police spokeswoman called "full-on search" for the male driver and female passenger whose gray BMW sedan struck the side of a taxi that was taking the couple to the hospital. The pair fled on foot, leaving the car behind.

The mother and father were pronounced dead on arrival at separate hospitals. The mother was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where doctors delivered the baby boy, police said.

The taxi driver was listed in stable condition at Bellevue, police said.

The accident was still under investigation, police spokesman Paul Browne said. Witnesses reported the BMW traveling at a high rate of speed, and the taxi was at a stop sign, Browne said.

9 Year Old Gives Birth (hiffington post)

A 9-year-old girl in Mexico has reportedly given birth.

The girl, identified as "Dafne" by The Telegraph, reportedly delivered a 5.7 pound baby by cesarean section on Jan. 27 in Zoquipan Hospital in Jalisco, an area in western Mexico.

The girl was 8 years old when she became pregnant. "This is a rape or child sex abuse case," Corona added, according to the Agence France-Presse. The age of sexual consent in Mexico is 12,according to UNICEF.

"The father is a boy who is 17, but we have not found him, since he ran away," the mother of the girl told officials, according to the AFP.

“Due to her young age,we don’t know if she is being entirely truthful,” Lino Ginzalez Corona, spokesperson at Jalisco State Prosecutor’s Office, said in a press conference, ABC reports.

The new mother is one of 11 children, according to ABC, and her parents were unable to watch her while they worked.

There have been only a handful of recent reported births among children this young, including a 10-year-old Colombian girl who gave birth last year, and a 9-year-old Chinese girl who gave birth to a healthy baby boy in 2010.

A very SUPER sunday.

Within the last year or so my father has been losing his sight due to diabetes, and recently it had begun to give him headaches. So he visited his doctor and had to under go emergency laser eye surgery friday morning. The sugery was on the eye he can see most out of, the other eye being almost completely blind already. After the sugery he had to have his eye patched leaving him unable to see. Being a huge 49er fan he then asked the doctor if he would be able to see sundays game (its been 18 years since he's seen his favorite team play in the superbowl) but the doctor wasn't able to answer him. The truth was the doctor was not sure if the surgery would leave his sight at the same level it was or perhaps worse. But yesterday my mom took the patch off of my fathers eye to find that he WOULD be able to see todays game, although he is still recovering and his sight is blurry. We know that something is better than nothing. So today as your watching the superbowl be appreciative to see what you do, and enjoy with good company be it family or friends.
Much love, - [G]

I must warn you though DO NOT WATCH WHEN HUNGRY! & if you end up wanting to eat at his restaurant call and make reservations now, because you've got a months worth of waiting to do. Bottom line is this is a great story of a great mans life, so next time your Netflix surfing give Jiro a shot.

All dogs go to heaven.

A loyal dog whose owner died late last year has apparently been showing up for Mass every day for the last two months at the church where the funeral was held.

Tommy, a 7-year-old German shepherd, used to accompany his owner, Maria Margherita Lochi, to services at Santa Maria Assunta church in San Donaci, Italy, according to the Daily Mail , and was allowed to sit at her feet.

After Lochi died, the dog "joined mourners at her funeral service" according to locals and "followed after Maria's coffin" as it was carried into the church.

Tommy, a stray who was adopted by Lochi, has been showing up "when the bell rings out to mark the beginning of services" ever since.

"He's there every time I celebrate mass and is very well behaved," Father Donato Panna told the paper. "He doesn't make a sound."

None of the other parishioners has complained, Panna said, and villagers give the dog food and water and allow him to sleep nearby.

"I've not heard one bark from him in all the time he has been coming in," Panna added. "He waits patiently by the side of the altar and just sits there quietly. I didn't have the heart to throw him out—I've just recently lost my own dog, so I leave him there until Mass finishes and then I let him out."

Examples of this type of extreme canine loyalty are incredibly common.

In 2011, a fallen Navy SEAL's Labrador retriever lay down next to his owner's casket at a funeral service in Rockford, Iowa, refusing to leave.

The heart-wrenching photo of the scene, taken by the SEAL's cousin and posted to Facebook, soon went viral.

And on Tuesday, a 60-year-old man's dog watched and waited for 30 minutes for the fire department to rescue his owner, who had fallen through thin ice into the freezing waters of the Colorado River:

Nearby hunters witnessed the accident and called 911. But while they waited for help, the man's dog refused to leave the scene. Like a worried relative in the waiting room, the dog paced back and forth, trying to reach the man, who repeatedly waved the dog off, fearing for its safety.

"This is simply who dogs are," Dr. Karen Overall, an animal behavior expert, told Yahoo! Shine. "We have had a close, cognitive, emotional and working relationship with dogs for tens of thousands of years, and we have both been changed by that history. Dogs are heroic to us because they live up to that relationship."

Canine loyalty extends beyond humans.

Last year, a male pit bull refused to leave the side of a female pit bull who had been dead on the side of a road in Phoenix. According to local news reports, the male pit bull stayed with her for more than 14 hours.
