Spanish prostitutes tell bankers, 'No loans, no love'

Financial professionals have tried to circumvent the sexy-time stonewalling by posing as architects and engineers, but the ladies are onto them, claiming they'll continue their indefinite fiscal version of "Lysistrata" until bankers "fulfill their responsibility to society." @AlexDunnin tweets, "This is how to fight for financial sector reform and win." The ladies think they're on the right track, at any rate, with one worker stating, "We don't think they can withstand much more."

Woman busted after bragging about avoiding jury duty

A Denver woman has been charged with perjury after telling a radio show that she dressed up in a weird way to avoid jury duty. It turns out the judge who was presiding over the case from which she was dismissed was listening just as she confessed, and he was quick to take legal action.

"The defense will have to show that she did not knowingly lie about a material fact," he said. "Bragging about getting out of jury duty is a little bit like being proud of not voting or cheating on your taxes."

Payton suspended one year

The New Orleans Saints ran an illegal bounty system targeting opposing offensive players and now they are the ones paying a heavy price for those actions.

Players were rewarded $1,500 for what were described as “knockout” hits and $1,000 for “cart-offs” (i.e. an injured opponent being taken off the field on a medical cart). The payoff amounts were doubled or tripled during the postseason.

Sports Illustrated first reported that Saints linebacker Jon Vilma offered a $10,000 reward to any teammate who could drive Minnesota quarterback Brett Favre out of the NFC championship game in January 2010. Favre played the entire game but was the victim of numerous borderline hits, including a high-low shot by defensive linemen Bobby McCray and Remi Ayodele that caused a serious ankle injury. Defensive end Anthony Hargrove also was flagged and fined by the NFL for a late-hit on Favre.

Teen smoking an 'epidemic,' new report finds

Smoking among America's youth has reached epidemic proportions, starting them on the path to a lifetime of addiction, the U.S. surgeon general's office said in its first report on youth smoking since 1994.   

Almost one in five high school-aged teens smokes, down from earlier decades, but the rate of decline has slowed, the report said. Because few high school smokers are able to quit, some 80 percent will continue to smoke as adults, according to the report released on Thursday.

Pet owners who can't let go turn to freeze-drying

"What we hear from pet owners is that they're so attached to their pet, they just can't stand to bury their pet or they don't want to cremate it," Eddy told LiveScience. "It's just too precious to them."

Many clients are older or single, living alone, McCullough said. Some preserve their pet so that when they themselves die, the animal can be buried with them.

Expensive niche taxidermy takes sensitivity and skill, but it's growing across U.S.
