Seattle Great Wheel Hit By Drone

An unmanned drone crashed into the Seattle Great Wheel on Wednesday afternoon, though no damage occurred to the 175-foot tall Ferris Wheel. Police noted that no injuries occurred as a result of the drone, which fell to the ground after colliding with the wheel, crashing through a table. Police are investigating the incident, which took place about 4:45 PM, and it is unclear at this time who was controlling the drone. Police say that drone accidents are unusual in Seattle, but this is the second time one occurred this year. At Seattle's Pride Parade, during the summer, a drone flew into a downtown building, tumbling to the ground and striking a woman in the head. Police were able to identify the man controlling that drone, and he was charged with reckless endangerment for the incident.

Death Toll Rising As Flooding Continues in Texas

The death toll is expected to rise in Texas as more rain pounded the already soaked state on Wednesday afternoon. 15 have been confirmed dead so far, but that tally is expected to increase as there are still at least a dozen people missing and more flooding is expected. Hundreds of people were evacuated from their homes Wednesday as more torrential downpours were expected in Austin and Houston, where flooding has already caused severe damage. Police and other rescue personnel are still in search and rescue mode, but the continued rain is hampering their efforts. In Houston, some 1,400 buildings sustained damage in Memorial Day flooding, and thousands of cars were trapped in rapidly rising waters. The fourth most populous city in the nation, Houston saw a staggering 11 inches of rain on Monday alone, while parts of Austin dealt with more than six inches of rain on the holiday.

Bill O'Reilly Accused of Wife-Beating

Bill O'Reilly Accused of Wife-Beating

Bill O'Reilly was accused of assaulting his ex-wife during a court hearing over the custody of the two children he shared with her, according to a report published Monday by Gawker.com.  Citing a source familiar with the court proceeding in the custody case, Gawker reported that a court-appointed expert testified that one of the two children claimed to have witnessed O'Reilly dragging his ex-wife, Maureen McPhilmy, down a flight of stairs by her neck.  Since New York officials seal most filed in cases involving minors, it would be hard to verify the claims made by Gawker's source, but the incident is not a hard sell considering other stories reported recently about O'Reilly's disturbing treatment of family, McPhilmy in particular.

According to military personnel, a nasty computer virus has infected the computers that run the Air Force's Predator and Reaper drones that fly missions from Nevada's Creech Air Force Base to Afghanistan and other far off war zones.  The virus was reportedly detected by military computer security specialists two weeks ago, but every attempt at removing the virus has been unsuccessful.

Major Change Coming to US Patent Office

Major Change Coming to US Patent Office

The process with which the US government reviews and grants patents is about to change for the first time in fifty years.  By a vote of 89-8, the Senate passed a measure on Friday that will bring drastic change to the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).  The bill made it through the House of Representatives in June, and now will be sent to the desk of President Obama, who is expected to sign the bill.  When the new law goes into effect, patents will be granted to the first person to invent a given technology, not to the first person who files for a patent.  Other developed nations have had this outlook on intellectual property for years.
