man chopped off his mothers head
Just 20 minutes after finding a headless body in Farmingdale, MTA police confirmed a man in his 30s, identified by law enforcement sources as possibly the womanÂ’s son, stepped in front of a Ronkonkoma-bound Long Island Rail Road train near the Clinton St. crossing
A woman in her 60s was found beheaded on a Long Island street just minutes before a man stepped in front of a LIRR train less than a mile away, according to witnesses and police.
Cops said the two victims may have been mother and son.
Police made the horrific discovery of the womanÂ’s body in front of an apartment building on Secatogue Ave. in Farmingdale around 7:55 p.m., a Nassau County Police spokesman said.
The body of the female victim, wearing only a bra and pants, was lying on one side of the street and her head was on the other, said witness Jack Imperial, 41, of Briarwood, Queens, who was taking a taxi to a meeting when he came across the grisly scene.
Â“The bodyÂ’s feet were at the curb, the shoulders were at the middle of the street. The head was across the street,Â” said Imperial. Â“IÂ’ve seen some gruesome stuff in my years of living ... but nothing like this. I didnÂ’t expect to see something like this, especially not out here.Â”
Just 20 minutes after finding the corpse, MTA police confirmed a man in his 30s, identified by law enforcement sources as possibly the womanÂ’s son, stepped in front of a Ronkonkoma-bound Long Island Rail Road train near the Clinton St. crossing
That train had left Penn Station shortly after 7 p.m., an LIRR spokesman said.
Imperial said his cab driver Â“got sickÂ” after seeing the womanÂ’s disembodied head and quickly sped away. The duo wondered if what they had seen was a seasonal prank, he said.
Â“I thought it was Halloween hoax. There was no big splatter of blood. It looked staged,Â” Imperial said.
A dispatcher for Yellow Cab Corp. in Farmingdale said several of his drivers Â— who have to pass the block after picking up passengers at the train station Â— had reported seeing the stomach-turning scene.
Â“One guy said he needs therapy now,Â” said the dispatcher, who declined to give his name. Â“They said it was one of the most disgusting things theyÂ’d ever seen.Â”

The womanÂ’s head may have been kicked across the street after the murder, a police source said.
It was not immediately clear if the killing occurred outside or in the apartment building. The identities of the dead man and woman were not immediately released.
Nick Gordon, who said he lived across the hall from the woman, said she moved in a few months ago and had a small white dog.
He speculated that the murder occurred inside the building. Â“When I came out the door, I saw the blood on the tile. It was all over, as if someone couldÂ’ve been pulling a body. You could see the smears going down the stairs.Â”

Oct 29 - 21-Year-Old Girl Convicted Of Falsifying Rape And Kidnapping Charges; Only 32 Days In Jail|
By MGz - 11 hours ago
Well, to be fair, Katherine Bennett got 180 days of electronic home monitoring and five years of supervised probation too. This, it should be noted, is far less horrible than what happened to the man she accused of kidnapping and raping her even though it was found that the entire accusation was a “hoax.” According to the Coloradoan:
Bennett accused 25-year-old Windsor man Dustin Toth of luring her to a Safeway parking lot Nov. 24 before taking her back to his home, holding her there overnight and sexually assaulting her.
She told police that Toth had convinced her to meet up and talk “as a friend” about his impending National Guard deployment, according to an arrest affidavit from the Windsor Police Department.
As a result of Bennett’s report, Toth was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping and sexual assault and was jailed.
Definitely a prudent course of action on the part of authorities. That kind of accusation has to be investigated. As a result of that investigation, Bennett was found to be a lying liar who lies.
As a result of the false report, Toth said he lost his job at OtterBox and was barred from deploying with his Army National Guard team to Cuba. He has since struggled to find work, been denied on multiple apartment applications and has become prone to anxiety attacks, he told the judge Friday.
So, he can’t get a job even in the Army and has had a hard time even finding a place to live. This is all during the investigation, mind you. It’s a product of even being investigated for rape/kidnapping. Surely, after hitting the “destruct” button on someone’s life by lying through your teeth about their fantasy assault a judge would see fit to set an appropriate punishment, maybe one that would fit the severity of the crime and discourage other hoaxsters from doing the same thing.
Katherine Bennett, 21, was sentenced to 32 days in the Weld County Jail, 180 days of electronic home monitoring and five years of supervised probation during a hearing that included an emotional statement by the man whose life her false allegations decimated.
What would she have gotten without the emotional statement? A prize?
Bennett was on medication at the time she made the whole thing up and attempted to partially blame the medication for her lies which I find interesting. Presumably she was on the medication because she has some kind of mental illness. If she hadn’t been on the meds would she just have claimed she was insane and not responsible for her actions? Yes, the answer is yes. So, no matter what, in her “not guilty” defense, she does not believe she was responsible for her actions.
I just don’t think 32 days in the clink is going to fix a level 12 sociopath like that and it’s sure not proportional to the damage she caused her victim.

Oct 29 - taco bell unveils mobile ordering|
By messy marv stan - 11 hours ago
Food used to be what drove folks into restaurants. But these days, it's also increasingly the technology behind it.
That's why two major restaurant chains, Taco Bell and Outback Steakhouse, made marketing waves on Tuesday, not with new product rollouts, but with industry-leading technology announcements.
Taco Bell went way outside the bun to unveil an advanced mobile app that lets folks order and pay on their smartphones and then walk or drive in and pick up their food
o draw social media attention and promote the new app, all of Taco Bell's social media platforms — including Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and Instagram — went dark on Tuesday, revealing the new way to Taco Bell is #onlyintheapp. Each social media platform, as well as tacobell.com, provides only a link to download the new app. Consumers with the previous Taco Bell mobile app get an automatic update to the new mobile ordering app.
"Technology has fundamentally changed the way people interact with brands," says Brian Niccol, president of Taco Bell. "All can be done any time, any place on a smartphone."
The driver behind the social media blackout: chat.
"We wanted to make sure our fans were the people who found out about this first," says Tressie Lieberman, senior director of digital platforms. "We wanted to break through with a message that gets them excited and talking."
Meanwhile, Outback on Tuesday announced plans to roll out an industry-first online reservations tool for mobile, iPad or laptop that shows real-time waits for seating at every Outback in the country and lets the user get a place in line.
New technologies are driving the $683 billion restaurant industry like never before. McDonald's and Starbucks both are spending huge sums on new technologies. So are Pizza Hut, Papa John's and Domino's. Most are aimed at Millennial consumers who would much rather interact quickly with their smartphones than stand in line waiting to order or to be seated. Chili's has technology that lets folks pay, order more food or play games on table-top tablets.
"Everyone is trying to stay ahead of everyone else in terms of connectivity," says Jerry McVety, founder of food service consulting firm McVety & Associates. These days, he says, the No. 1 goal is "get the customers and provide technology and services to keep them."
And not just Millennials. "It's well known that younger consumers are more likely to accept — and even request — technology options being part of their dining experience, but we're finding that older consumers also are willing to incorporate technology for a variety of restaurant-related activities," said Hudson Riehle, senior vice president at the National Restaurant Association.
Some 56% of consumers ages 45 to 64 recently have used technology options in restaurants. Four of 10 have ordered food or looked up menus online in the past month. About a third have looked up restaurant locations on a smartphone. More than one in 10 have ordered takeout/delivery, looked up nutrition information or made a reservation via phone or tablet apps, he says.
Outback will roll out its online Click Thru Seating tool on Nov. 4. Beyond letting customers see wait times for every Outback in the country, it lets customers add their name to the current wait list or put their name in the queue for any time that day. Unlike a traditional reservation, late guests will not be dropped from the wait list or penalized.
"It's more important than rolling out a new steak," says John Schaufelberger, chief marketing officer, in a phone interview.
And it responds to what bugs casual dining customers most: waiting. On a busy Friday or Saturday night, customers typically wait almost 40 minutes for a seat at the typical casual dining restaurant. "This has historically been a pain point to our customers," says Schaufelberger. "We don't want that to be a barrier" to coming in"
But McVety, the food service consultant, warns that some traditional Outback customers who opt to just show up and wait in line may be turned off when they see customers who arrive later seated before them.
At the same time, Taco Bell became the first national, fast-food chain to launch its mobile ordering and payment app for both drive-thru and dining room orders. The free Taco Bell mobile ordering app for iOS and Android gives consumers access to every Taco Bell ingredient.
"Consumers have told us they continue to look for the experience that meets them where they are and to customize it to what they want and how they want it," says Niccol, in a phone interview.
Early next year, Taco Bell will roll out a loyalty program that links with the app, says Niccol. And it's also testing a new catering program in about 15 stores.
To encourage use of the app, some new products will initially be accessible only via app ordering, says Lieberman, "You'll be able to order products that no one else can."

Oct 29 - BREAKING: Nurse refuses ebola quarantine | State seeks to force her isolation|
By Shadiah - 11 hours ago
A nurse who was quarantined against her will in New Jersey after treating Ebola patients in West Africa will not obey officials' instructions to seclude herself at home.
(CNN) -- Not long ago, Kaci Hickox was fighting Ebola in West Africa, doing what she could to treat those with the deadly disease. Now, she's in the middle of a different fight -- in the middle of Maine.
A Maine official said late Wednesday afternoon that the state is in the process of filing a court order to require Hickox to abide by a 21-day quarantine. This measure is meant to prevent her from spreading Ebola, given her hands-on role with the deadly virus.
In a written statement, Gov. Paul LePage said Hickox "has been unwilling to follow the protocols set forth by the Maine CDC and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control for medical workers who have been in contact with Ebola patients." The statement didn't say which protocols she was resisting but added LePage is seeking legal authority to enforce a quarantine.

And on Tuesday, state health commissioner Mary Mayhew said, "If an individual who came in direct contact with Ebola patients has returned to Maine and is not willing to avoid public contact and stay in their home voluntarily during the period they are at some risk, we will take additional measures and pursue appropriate authority to ensure they make no public contact."
Yet Hickox -- a Doctors Without Borders volunteer in Sierra Leone who has twice tested negative for Ebola -- isn't ready to stay put.
'I remain appalled by these home quarantine policies'
"I don't plan on sticking to the guidelines," she said Wednesday on NBC's "Today" show, referring to Maine' officials' plan for her to remain quarantined at home through November 10. "I remain appalled by these home quarantine policies that have been forced upon me."
One of Hickox's lawyers, Norm Siegel, told NBC's Matt Lauer state officials had until Thursday to adjust their approach, and if they tried to physically apprehend Hickox, her legal team would take the matter to court.
President Barack Obama has been vocal in recent days against policies such as quarantines or travel bans based more on fear than scientific fact. While he did not mention Hickox by name, he said Wednesday that health care workers like her -- who risk their lives and livelihoods by going to West Africa, to help those in need and try to curb the deadly outbreak -- are "heroes" who "deserve to be treated with dignity and respect."
Marco Rubio: Quarantined nurse is a 'hero'
"When I hear people talking about American leadership and then are promoting policies that would avoid leadership and have us running in the opposite direction and hiding under the covers, it makes me a little frustrated," Obama said.
Steven Hyman, another member of Hickox's legal team, said that knowing for certain what could happen legally with his client is unclear because "we're treading in areas" in which "there's not a whole lot of case law."
However, he said, "Society has a right to protect itself from legitimate issues of public health, but it can't do it based on what the (U.S.) Supreme Court calls fear."

The nurse told "Today" that she's in good health and does not have symptoms. A person must be symptomatic to be contagious if they have Ebola. But it can take up to three weeks between when a person contracts the virus and they become sick, hence the talk of a 21-day quarantine.
Siegel told the Bangor Daily News that, while Hickox would contest any court order, she will abide by guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that say she should subject herself to monitoring, such as daily reporting of measured temperatures.
"The conditions that the state of Maine is now requiring Kaci to comply with are unconstitutional and illegal and there is no justification for the state of Maine to infringe on her liberty," Siegel told the newspaper.
Hickox initially was put in isolation Friday, after landing in Newark, New Jersey.
New Jersey and New York had just started requiring anyone who had contact with Ebola patients in West Africa to be quarantined for 21 days. New Jersey officials additionally said that screeners determined that she had a fever at the airport.

But Hickox, speaking to CNN over the weekend from her quarantine tent at the New Jersey hospital, said she never had a fever.
"They were using a forehead scanner, and I was distressed and a little bit upset, and so my cheeks were flushed," she told CNN's Candy Crowley. The nurse said her temperature was later determined to be normal.
Hickox told "Today" that she witnessed "complete disorganization" at the airport in Newark, New Jersey, and that New York and New Jersey's policies are "not scientifically" or "constitutionally just."
The policies, she says, will be a "big deterrent" for health care workers who want to go to West Africa to treat patients, because they won't want to be quarantined when they return if, like her, they are asymptomatic.
"It's already difficult for people to take time out of their lives to go and respond," she said, though she definitely plans to go back because it's a "privilege to help."
Ebola survivor: Christie is 'playing politics'
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said his state agreed to let her go to Maine after confirming she "was no longer symptomatic," but he is unapologetic about New Jersey's quarantine policy. The straight-talking Republican also hit back Tuesday at criticism that the nurse wasn't treated well enough, arguing that she even had Internet access and takeout food.
"Whatever," he said, when pressed by reporters about a potential legal challenge. "Get in line. I've been sued lots of times before. Get in line. I'm happy to take it on."
Christie on possible Ebola lawsuit: 'Whatever'
The debate about how to treat returning health care workers comes amid what officials say is the worst Ebola outbreak in history.
The World Health Organization reported Wednesday that there are more than 13,700 confirmed or suspected cases of Ebola -- almost all in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. The United Nations' health authority projected about 5,000 deaths from the virus.
And those are only the ones that authorities have been able to count. In a region where health care access and record-keeping are limited, the WHO says the death toll may be especially undercounted. Some ill people who are seen by physicians and counted as Ebola cases may not stay for treatment and die of the disease, and the record-keepers won't know to record their deaths.
The WHO has said that the mortality rate from the current outbreak, starting with the first death in December, is roughly 60% to 70%.

Aliens are REAL reveals former Area 51 scientist who insists they're friendly and helping us
Former Area 51 scientist Dr Boyd Bushman spoke about the aliens in a documentary shortly before his death - watch here
A scientist has revealed that aliens are real.
Dr Boyd Bushman - who used to work at Area 51 - opened up about his career in studying UFOs and alien life at the secretive base in a documentary filmed just before he died.
"With respect to the alien craft, we have American citizens who are working on UFOs 24 hours a day.
"We are trying to learn what to do."
The former senior scientist describes that the aliens we know of can be split into two groups.
"There are two groups of aliens," describes. "They divide them into two groups. ItÂ’s like a cattle ranch.
"One group are wranglers, and the others are rustlers Â– the stealers of cattle. The ones that are wranglers are much more friendly, and have a better relationship with us."
He describes the aliens as five feet tall and says that "one or two of them are around 230 years old".
He goes on to reveal that 'at least 18 operate with our facility'.
While their eyes and noses are different from humans, Dr Boyd reveals that they still have five fingers and five toes but they are telepathic mind readers.
"They're able to use their own voice by telepathy to talk to you," he reveals.
He also added that the aliens were dressed in dungarees so they could be grabbed when they started to float.
Watch the full documentary below.
