    George Zimmerman Sells Painting for $100K

    (NEW YORK) — He’s no Picasso or Warhol, but George Zimmerman still managed to get six figures for a piece of his original artwork. Zimmerman’s painting of a blue American flag adorned with words from the Pledge of Allegiance fetched $100,099.99 on eBay.  Bidding, which ended on Saturday, started at $0.99. The former Florida neighborhood watch captain will presumably use the money from the auction to help pay off some of the $2 million in legal fees he incurred when he was on trial for the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman was acquitted last August but has since been… Read more

    Army's New Laser Weapon Can Shoot Down Mortars, Drones

    (NEW YORK) — The Army has successfully tested a futuristic laser weapon capable of shooting football-sized mortar rounds and unmanned drones out of the sky.  The truck-mounted weapon, known as the High Energy Laser Mobile Demonstrator (HEL MD) is still about a decade away from becoming an operational part of the Army’s arsenal, but gives a hint at what a weapon of the future could look like. The Army tested its HEL MD laser at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico for nearly six weeks starting in mid-November. The device was equipped with a 10-kilowatt solid state laser… Read more

    Federal Court Declares Utah's Gay Marriage Ban Unconstitutional

    (SALT LAKE CITY) — A federal court has struck down Utah’s same-sex marriage ban, saying it is unconstitutional. In a 53-page ruling, a federal judge said Utah’s gay marriage ban, which was passed by voters in 2004, violates gay and lesbian couple’ rights to due process and equal protection. The ruling says: “The State’s current laws deny its gay and lesbian citizens their fundamental right to marry and, in so doing, demean the dignity of these same-sex couples for no rational reason. Accordingly, the court finds that these laws are unconstitutional.”  The county clerk’s office in Salt Lake City began… Read more
