Hey gang and Good Evening to you all! Jax here and I thought I would let you know about the survivors of the Costa Concordia disaster. Now, with the disaster, the ship scraped along some rocks off of an island, and the ship began to tip to one side. Anyone remember the Titanic?

The fault of the whole disaster is the captain, Francesco Schettino, …Read More »
Hey everyone! Interesting news story I found, and that is the fact that an old rival of Oscar Pistorius wants the convicted killer of Reeva Steenkamp to resume his racing career once he is out of jail, which will be sometime this year.

The ship began to list to …Read More »
Hi everyone, Jax here, and there is an old saying about a man who represents himself has a fool for a client. Truer words were never spoken before and they definitely apply to Charles “Chase” Merritt, the man who was arrested for the death of the McStay family. Merritt told a judge in his latest hearing that he has not hired a defense attorney because he has decided instead to be his own attorney.
While it is true that the sixth Amendment of the Constitution does allow for people who are accused of a crime to defend themselves, the fact …Read More »
Back on April 3, 1961, a Douglas DC-3 twin propeller plane left Linares, a city that is less than 200 miles from Santiago, Chile. On board was eight Green Cross club soccer players, their coach, plus 15 other passengers for a total of 24 people on the small plane. The plane never arrived at its destination, and has been lost for over the past 53 years. However, that is not the case anymore because the musing plane has now been found on top of the Andes mountains.
The lost plane full of soccer players has been far been the biggest …Read More »
