New zodiac causes uproar
Sofia Whitcombe began her day with the startling realization that she might not be exacdy who she thought she
"My whole life, I thought I was a Capricorn," the 25-year-old publicist said. "Now I'm a Sagittarius? I don't feel like a Sagittarius!" It felt, she said, like a rug had been pulled from under her feet.
"Will my personality change?" she mused. "Capricorns are diligent and regimented, and super-hard-woric-ing like me. Sagittarians are more laid back. This is all a little off-putting."
Countless people reacted on social networks Friday to the
"news" that the stars have shifted alignment, astrologically speaking. No matter that the astronomy instructor who started it all in a weekend newspaper interview said it was an old story — very old; 2,000 years old, actually—and that astrologists were insisting it wouldn't change a thing. The story had traveled around the blogosphere like, well, a shooting star.
"I believe it's a zodiac scam," said Jose Arce, a 38-year-old from Fort Lee, N.J., who runs a body shop. "I've known myself to be a Sagittarius, I believe, since I was bom. So to come up now with some new sign? It's unacceptable!"

take awhile... The preliminary indication is there was a space heater that ignited some clothing that was on a bed in a bedroom other than the one he was in,” Robinson said.
“This reminds us all to be careful when we use space heaters. We need to observe proper clearances. And space heaters are not designed to be used with extension cords,” he said.
In a terrible coincidence, the date of 1/11/11 had a deadly counterpart in 2010.
The city’s last fatal fire occurred precisely one year earlier.

“A year to the day — almost a year to the hour,” said Lt. Doug Vogel with the NBFD fire marshal’s office.
A 53-year-old man died in an outbuilding in his backyard in the 900 block of Mill Street.
“He was using a chiminea to keep warm in the outbuilding, and something happened and he was not able to get out,” Vogel said. “It was almost to the hour — people may think it’s a typo, but it’s not."

Russian state-owned oil firm takes $8 billion stake in BP
IX)N1X)N (AP) — In a major deal that cements energy ties between Russia and Britain, oil company BP announced Friday night that Russia's state-owned oil firm Rosneft will take 5 percent of BP's ordinary voting shares in a major stock

Instead, “she hears the activation for the key-code for his gun safe’s lock and she thinks that’s a bad thing,” de Lemos said.
“He’s pointing the (Glock .23) handgun at her and her daughter’s back. He staggers back and fires a handgun discharge into the roof in the master bedroom.
“She hears the shots, she sees bullets coming through walls, and their daughter is screaming. She knows if she keeps going out the front door, they’re going to get killed. She changes direction, runs to the side door and outside,” he said.
In exchange, Rosneft will give BP about 9.5 percent of its shares, BP said. Rosneft chairman and Russian deputy prime minister Igor Sechin said the deal was worth about $8 billion.
T he companies plan to explore for oil and gas off the Russian Arctic continental shelf. The announcement sparked a backlash in Washington with some politicians expressing regrets about the tight alliance forming between
Russia and Britain.
The agreement follows the disastrous spill off the coast of the U.S. last year. T he company has been selling off many of its assets to raise costs to pay for billions of dollars of liability stemming from the spill.
“Fortunately for everyone, no one was killed or injured in all this,” de Lemos said.
The jury had ‘reasonable doubt’ that when he fired the weapon, he wasn’t intending to kill,” de Lemos said.
De Lemos argued for penitentiary time. “Any time you put your own child in danger ...” he said in a Thursday evening interview. The third-degree felony could have earned Wilson up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
T here will be a pre-sentence investigation.
The jury heard evidence of a serious alcohol problem as well as defense evidence from attorney Juan Carlos Hernandez that Wilson has been going to AA and has become a team leader with the organization, that he hadn’t been drinking since he was out on bond, that he’s gainfully employed and a good worker.
“They felt they would take the chance and put him on probation, and made some suggestions to the judge for pretty close monitoring,” de Lemos said.
