Mystery of fish caught with wedding ring attached solved


In one of the more bizarre fishing stories to surface, a fisherman reeled in a steelhead with a wedding ring attached to its tail, leaving a group of anglers fishing in a tournament on Lake Michigan on Friday scratching their heads.

“It was crazy,” Jim Nelligan told USA Today/For The Win Outdoors. “We started wondering who did this, and why?”

The answer didn’t take long to emerge.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported Monday that Capt. Jason Rose used a zip tie to attach his wedding band to a steelhead he caught and released on May 4 across the lake near the port of Whitehall, Mich. Rose had been married for nearly a decade when he and his spouse decided to go their separate ways.

  • Older technology like landline phones, USB drives, alarm locks, and more will likely become obsolete in the next 10 years.
  • Eco-friendly changes in the manner technology is created will likely render one-use plastic products and incandescent light bulbs useless in the coming decade.
  • Keyless cars, security code-accessible doors, and wireless chargers will likely eliminate everyday inconveniences like losing keys and breaking charging cords.

Your home is probably filled with items that would have seemed incredibly futuristic a decade ago. From smart speakers that can order pizza to lamps you can turn on with your phone, the modern home is bristling with cool innovations. It’s probably, however, hiding a few objects that are quickly becoming obsolete.

Updated 11:46 AM ET, Mon June 24, 2019

Washington (CNN)The Supreme Court struck down Monday a provision of federal law that prohibits the registration of “immoral” or “scandalous” trademarks as a violation of the First Amendment.

The justices’ ruling clears the way for a clothing designer to apply for a federal trademark for his clothing line called FUCT.
The ruling, which was unanimous in part and 6-3 in part, could open the doors to more requests to register words or phrases that have been considered vulgar, a concern that the court’s minority feared.

These dogs are getting a cancer vaccine. If it works, humans could be next

Bronte Lord and Jacque Smith, CNN

(CNN)If you ask most experts in the cancer community, creating a wide-ranging vaccine that prevents tumors like we prevent infectious diseases is damn near impossible.

The idea may be tantalizing, but study after study over the last several decades has taught doctors that cancer is personal. Everyone’s looks different on a molecular level. And each tumor is an agile, devious adversary that mutates as it grows to outwit the human immune system.
“They may be right,” Stephen Johnston says, but “if the chance is 10% that it might work, I can’t see any reason why we shouldn’t take that chance.”
Johnston isn’t an oncologist. He’s a scientist, inventor and director of Arizona State University’s Center for Innovations in Medicine. He recently launched a clinical trial to test a cancer vaccine in hundreds of dogs across the country. The trial will examine whether the vaccine delays or prevents a variety of cancers in healthy, older dogs.
