Sexual dysfunction pills are stolen

Bethlehem police said someone stole nearly 200 boxes of pills used to treat male sexual dysfunction.

Someone stole 197 boxes of Levitra from a car sometime between Friday and Saturday. According to Bayer Pharmaceuticals, Levitra is used by men who experience problems with erectile function.

The boxes of pills were stolen from a car owned by Sarah Biggs, 27, of Bethlehem. Biggs works for a pharmaceutical company and the pills were taken from her car, parked near her home in the 2000 block of Madison Avenue, said Bethlehem police Lt. Joseph Kimock.

Police said the pills were all sample packs with three pills per box.

Also the missing part of the remaining topic title on CBS is "... in comes the new" so I'm sure we are looking at a brighter as of yet uncertain robot future.

World's oldest blogger makes final post
July 14, 2008

http://images.theage.com.au/ftage/ffximage/2008/07/14/oliveriley_wideweb__470x381,0.jpg

The Australian woman renowned as the world's oldest internet blogger has made her final post, aged 108.

Olive Riley, of Woy Woy on NSW's central coast, died in a nursing home just after 6am yesterday.

She will be mourned by family and an international readership in the thousands.

"It was mind blowing to her," her great grandson Darren Stone, of Brisbane, told AAP last night.

"She had people communicating with her from as far away as Russia and America on a continual basis, not just once in a while."

Olive had posted more than 70 entries on her blog, or as she jokingly labelled it, her "blob", since February last year.

The ardent Sydney Swans AFL fan shared her day-to-day musings and her life's experiences raising three children on her own, living through two world wars and the Depression, her work as a station cook in rural Queensland and as an egg sorter and barmaid in Sydney.

In her final post, dated June 26, an increasingly frail Olive noted she couldn't "shake off that bad cough".

She also: "read a whole swag of email messages and comments from my internet friends today, and I was so pleased to hear from you. Thank you, one and all."

Olive's musing live on at http://www.allaboutolive.com.au and more recently at http://worldsoldestblogger.blogspot.com.

She was born in 1899, and would have turned 109 on October 20.

"She enjoyed the notoriety - it kept her mind fresh," Mr Stone said.

"What kept her going was the memories she had, and being able to recall those memories so strongly."

Olive's funeral will be held at Palmdale Cemetery, on the NSW Central Coast, late this week.

Papal trivia: 10 things you didn't know about Pope Benedict XVI
July 14, 2008

http://www.news.com.au/common/imagedata/0,,6144645,00.jpg
Red shoes ... Pope Benedict XVI was wearing his red shoes when greeted by Kevin Rudd, NSW Premier Morris Iemma and Cardinal George Pell / AP

TEN little-known facts about Pope Benedict XVI, who is in Australia for World Youth Day.

1. Pope 2.0
Benedict XVI is more connected than any of his predecessors. He is the first pontiff in history to use a mobile phone. He also has an iPod engraved with his coat of arms. There is an online fan club at www.popebenedictxvifanclub.com and he also uses a range of email addresses.

2. Piano man
The Pope is known to tinkle the ivories and is a big fan of classical music - particularly Mozart, Bach and Beethoven.

3. Cat-o-lick leader
The Pope is a cat lover, and while he never owned one in his youth, he and brother Georg fed strays and collected cat plates.

4. Nice ones 'n' twos
His Holiness has resumed the sporting of red Papal shoes, which have not been used since the early days of Pope John Paul II. Contrary to media speculation the shoes had been crafted by Prada, the Vatican has confirmed they were made by the Pope's personal cobbler. The Vatican said, in response: "The Pope, in summary, does not wear Prada, but Christ."

5. He likes beer
Being Bavarian, it's no surprise his holiness loves beer - Franziskaner Weissbeer apparently being his favourite. He's said to be fond of lemonade, too.

6. He likes footy
The Pope is a passionate soccer fan who supports the German side Bayern Munich: "I'd like the game of football to be a vehicle for the education of the values of honesty, solidarity and fraternity, especially among younger generations," the Pope has said.

7. Lifelong dream
While most five-year-old boys think about being a footballer, fire fighter, police officer or soldier, the future pontiff declared he wanted to be a cardinal after he was among a group of children who welcomed the visiting Cardinal Archbishop of Munich to his hometown.

8. What's this I See?
The Pope's father, Joseph Ratzinger, was a Bavarian police officer. Joseph Jr was the youngest of Joseph and Maria's three children. Big brother Georg is a priest and their sister Maria, who never married, died in 1991.

9. Dynasty
The Pope's great uncle was the German politician Georg Ratzinger.

10. Military man
The Pope was drafted into the German army in 1943, and it is well-known that he was in the Hitler Youth movement as a boy. However, because of an infected finger, he never learned to shoot in the army.

'Frankenrobot' Has Biological Brain
Marlowe Hood, AFP

Aug. 13, 2008 -- Meet Gordon, probably the world's first robot to be controlled exclusively by living brain tissue.

Stitched together from cultured rat neurons, Gordon's primitive grey matter was designed at the University of Reading by scientists who unveiled the neuron-powered machine on Wednesday.

Their groundbreaking experiments explore the vanishing boundary between natural and artificial intelligence, and could shed light on the fundamental building blocks of memory and learning, one of the lead researchers said.

"The purpose is to figure out how memories are actually stored in a biological brain," said Kevin Warwick, a professor at the University of Reading and one of the robot's principle architects.
