Texas couple stranded in remote Utah desert for six days

Helena and Gerald Byler, both in their seventies, made a narrow escape from a bad end after being stranded in the Utah desert for six days.

>> Read more trending news

According to Utah news outlet the Deseret News, if the couple had been subjected to the desert environment for even one more day, they might not have made it out.

“It’s totally unbelievable. So many things seem to have fallen in place on their behalf,” said Kane County sheriff’s Chief Deputy Alan Alldredge in an interview. “Many little things fell into place that allowed the Bylers to be located alive.”

What was supposed to be a day trip turned bad when the Bylers’ car was disabled on rough terrain far off the main road. They tried to get back on foot, spending the first night walking through rain.

When her husband couldn’t walk any further after that night, Helena left him their remaining food — a few pecans — and continued walking on her own. She ended up wandering the desert for another five days. She slept wherever she could, made an “SOS” sign in the road, and suffered hallucinations from the physical strain.

She was eventually found on Oct. 2, seemingly out of sheer luck, by Dell LeFevre, of Panguitch, Utah. LeFevre was checking on the cattle he keeps on the Grand Staircase Monument’s land when he found Helena lying in the road, according to the Kane County Sheriff’s Office. He got her into his vehicle, gave her water, and contacted the police.

Gerald was found later, having taken shelter in a group of old trailers, and evacuated by helicopter to Dixie Regional Medical Center. One of the trailers near his showed signs that Helena may have sheltered there, not knowing Gerald was so close. Her ‘SOS’ sign was only 3 miles from their abandoned car.

Both of the Bylers recovering well and expected to return home soon.

“I’m a firm believer in God. He’s pulled me out of quite a few messes in my life,” LeFevre said in an interview regarding the rescue. “If she had gone off the road, no one ever would have found them.”

Colin Kaepernick not invited to annual owners and NFLPA meeting

NFL owners and the NFL Players Association met in New York Tuesday for a regularly scheduled meeting with the topic of the national anthem protests in mind. Knowing this, many players were expecting one important free agent to be invited in Colin Kaepernick considering he was the person who got it all started. However, it was made clear that he was not invited, according to his attorney.

That apparently didn’t sit well with players that were invited to the meetings.

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman made his displeasure pretty clear, telling ESPN’s Brady Henderson, “You’ve heard every excuse in the book for why he doesn’t have a job, but you see what it is. They’ve agreed not to give him a job.”

Kaepernick has filed a grievance against the NFL alleging that there has been collusion in not signing him. A case can certainly be made that there’s a concerted effort to not sign Kaepernick to some team as there are several backups and even starting QBs in the league who are not better than him, but to prove actual collusion is going to be pretty tough.

19-year-old arrested after 6-year-old Washington boy found in dumpster

A 19-year-old man from Kerrville, Texas, who is a relative of the boy and was visiting family in Lynnwood, Washington, has been booked into the Snohomish County Jail for first-degree murder of 6-year-old Dayvid Pakko.

>> Read more trending news

A police statement alleges the 19-year-old admitted to filling a bathtub with water with the intention of drowning Dayvid, then called the boy to the bathroom, picked him up and placed him face-down in the water, and held his head underneath for approximately 30 seconds before Dayvid became still.

The statement from police then alleges the 19-year-old left the boy face down in the water for approximately six minutes before he wrapped the boy's body in a blanket and placed him in a cardboard box, which he used to dispose of the body in the nearest garbage dumpster. 

"It's a tragic ending to a long search operation," said Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Shari Ireton.

Authorities said the body was found about 2 a.m. Tuesday in a dumpster at the Bristol Square Apartment complex on 44th Avenue West.

The body was found by officers with the Violent Offenders Task Force. In cases of missing children, the officers, who represent several law enforcement agencies, are deployed to check on registered sex offenders in the area. That's when they found the child's body.

Detectives are working on getting a search warrant and are processing the crime scene, where they're expected to be working for several hours. 

Once a search warrant is obtained, detectives will go through the apartment building and dumpster for evidence.

The boy was reported missing about 5 p.m. Monday.

Crews, including 100 volunteers, searched the area of 44th Avenue West between 156th Street and State Route 99, just outside the Lynnwood city limits.

According to the Sheriff’s Office and relatives, Dayvid stayed home sick from school Monday. 

The boy lives with his mother, who was at work when he disappeared. He was last seen about 2:30 p.m.

The Sheriff's Office said Dayvid was under adult supervision while he was at home, but did not say who he was with.

The Snohomish County medical examiner will determine the boy's cause of death.

'Nuclear war may break out any moment': North Korea intensifies rhetoric against USA

North Korea’s deputy U.N. ambassador warned Monday that the situation on the Korean peninsula “has reached the touch-and-go point and a nuclear war may break out any moment.”

>> Read more trending news

Kim In Ryong told the U.N. General Assembly’s disarmament committee that North Korea is the only country in the world that has been subjected to “such an extreme and direct nuclear threat” from the United States since the 1970s -- and said the country has the right to possess nuclear weapons in self-defense.

He pointed to large-scale military exercises every year using “nuclear assets” and said what is more dangerous is what he called a U.S. plan to stage a “secret operation aimed at the removal of our supreme leadership.”

This year, Kim said, North Korea completed its “state nuclear force and thus became the full-fledged nuclear power which possesses the delivery means of various ranges, including the atomic bomb, H-bomb and intercontinental ballistic rockets.”

“The entire U.S. mainland is within our firing range and if the U.S. dares to invade our sacred territory even an inch it will not escape our severe punishment in any part of the globe,” he warned.

Kim’s speech follows escalating threats between North Korea and the United States, and increasingly tough U.N. sanctions.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Monday that his country is curtailing economic, scientific and other ties with North Korea in line with U.N. sanctions, and the European Union announced new sanctions on Pyongyang for developing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Sunday that diplomatic efforts aimed at resolving the North Korean crisis “will continue until the first bomb drops.” His commitment to diplomacy came despite President Donald Trump’s tweets several weeks ago that his chief envoy was “wasting his time” trying to negotiate with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, whom he derisively referred to as “Little Rocket Man.”

North Korea’s deputy U.N. ambassador called his country’s nuclear and missile arsenal “a precious strategic asset that cannot be reversed or bartered for anything.”

“Unless the hostile policy and the nuclear threat of the U.S. is thoroughly eradicated, we will never put our nuclear weapons and ballistic rockets on the negotiating table under any circumstances,” Kim said.

He told the disarmament committee that the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea -- North Korea’s official name -- had hoped for a nuclear-free world.

Instead, Kim said, all nuclear states are accelerating the modernization of their weapons and “reviving a nuclear arms race reminiscent of (the) Cold War era.” He noted that the nuclear weapon states, including the United States, boycotted negotiations for the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons that was approved in July by 122 countries at the United Nations.

“The DPRK consistently supports the total elimination of nuclear weapons and the efforts for denuclearization of the entire world,” he said. But as long as the United States rejects the treaty and “constantly threatens and blackmails the DPRK with nuclear weapons … the DPRK is not in position to accede to the treaty.”

One in nine American men infected with oral HPV, study finds

Oral human papillomavirus, or HPV, is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases. However, men are more at risk than women, with one in nine American males infected, according to a new report published in Annals of Internal of Medicine

>> Read more trending news

Researchers from Harvard University and other institutions across the country recently conducted a study to determine the difference in prevalence of oral and genital HPV infection among men and women. 

To do so, they used data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination, a CDC survey that monitors the health and nutritional statuses of Americans.

Scientists specifically gathered information from the 2011 to 2014 records, examining adults aged 18 to 69, who were given physical examinations that included tests for 37 types of HPV as well as an interview.

>>Related: HPV vaccination of adolescents increases; suburban, rural areas lag

After analyzing the results, they estimated that 11.5 percent of the 11 million men assessed had an oral HPV infection, and 3.2 percent of the 3.2 million women evaluated had oral HPV.

Furthermore, analysts found that the prevalence of all HPV types was highest among men. High-risk HPV affected about 7.3 percent of men, overall, and just 1.4 percent of women, overall. 

The probability of high-risk oral HPV was greatest among black participants, marijuana users, cigarette smokers who smoked more than 20 cigarettes a day and those who reported having 16 or more vaginal or oral sex partners.

“This study's findings provide several policy implications to guide future OPSCC prevention efforts to combat 

this disease,” the authors said in the study.

That’s why researchers hope to conduct more studies to find better ways to screen for the disease and get the HPV vaccine to people of all ages.

Man brings ‘Star Wars’ to his neighborhood for Halloween

Anyone thinking they’ll compete with an Ohio man in a neighborhood Halloween decorating contest should just pack up the pumpkins, bury the zombies and try again next year.

Nick Meyer has built a nearly full-sized replica of an All Terrain Armored Transport from “Star Wars.” Most people know them as AT-ATs, The Associated Press reported.

He used wood, foam and plastic barrels to build the four-legged walker from the “Star Wars” film franchise. It is almost the same height as his two-story house, Cleveland.com reported.

The building project was months in the making as Meyer started collecting everything back in April and has been working on the AT-AT over the past few months.

It took about two days to actually install the walker with the help of friends.

Meyer told Cleveland.com that despite appearances to the contrary, like the two-story AT-AT, he’s not a fanatic when it comes to “Star Wars.”

Officials say Brian Jarrell, 25, was reported missing by his family after he disappeared during a trip to Orlando.

His wife told investigators the family was at Disney World on Wednesday for Jarrell's daughter's birthday when he said he wasn't feeling well and left the park.

Jerrell’s wife filed a missing person report with the Orange County Sheriff's Office when she got back to the hotel and couldn't find him.

Jarrell's shipmates began searching for him in Camden County. They found his car outside a friend's home on Spinnaker Circle on Thursday.

They asked their friend Ty Bell if they could look for Jarrell inside the house.

They found Jarrell face down in the back bedroom. He was unconscious and cold to the touch.

Officials arrived at the residence and Jarrell was pronounced dead. He had no known medical issues, according to officials.

Police were called to the home on Spinnaker Circle again Monday after someone reported seeing a person lying inside unresponsive.

Police spoke with a U.S. Navy chief, who said he sent two sailors to their shipmate's house after he didn't report for duty.

Police found Bell lying on his back on the couch, unresponsive, with a white foamy substance coming from his nose.

He did not appear to be breathing. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officials have not released a cause of death for either sailor.

Both were stationed at Kings Bay Submarine Base.

325-pound Florida woman accused of killing child by sitting on her

A Florida woman is accused of killing her 9-year-old cousin after the woman sat on the child as a form of punishment. 

The 325-pound woman, identified as 64-year-old Veronica Green Posey, was charged with homicide and cruelty toward a child, the Pensacola News Journal reported.

Posey sat on the girl, Dericka Lindsay, Saturday after she said the girl misbehaved, said a report by the Escambia County Sheriff's Office.

According to the Pensacola News Journal, Dericka’s parents, Grace Joan Smith and James Edmund Smith, sought Posey’s help Saturday in punishing the child.

Posey, who said that Dericka was “out of control,” first struck the girl with a ruler and a metal pipe before Dericka ran to an armchair, authorities said.

Posey sat on top of Dericka in the chair for about 10 minutes before the girl complained that she could not breathe, the girl’s father told police. When Posey stood up about two minutes later, she discovered the child unresponsive. Posey called 911 and began performing CPR.

Paramedics who responded to the call found Dericka unresponsive and transported her to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead, the News Journal reported.

Grace and James Smith were arrested and charged with child neglect for not reporting the alleged abuse. Grace Smith was also charged with cruelty toward a child. 

According to the Florida Department of Children and Families, the Smiths had previously had an incident with the agency involving their daughter’s welfare.

Posey, whose bail was set at $125,000, was released from jail Monday. Her aunt and uncle remained in jail.

Bow Wow corrects those who joke on him for Death Row tweet

Bow Wow is correcting some fans and followers who were quick to criticize him for a tweet he posted Tuesday.

XXL Mag reported that the former kid rapper, who goes by Shad Moss, tweeted a photo of himself among iconic rappers Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Suge Knight, Tupac and others who were signed to the former label Death Row Records.

>> Read more trending news

The image appears to be a Photoshopped version of Vibe magazine’s iconic 1996 Death Row cover.

One Twitter user quoted the original tweet saying, “Inaccurate. Where's Biggie?”

In response, Bow replied that he had been on Death Row since he was 6. He posted the picture after a fan sent it to him. 

“(I)t brought back memories. Big was on bad boy (sic) my bros,” he tweeted.

Bow is right. The Notorious B.I.G. was signed to Bad Boy Records, now Bad Boy Entertainment, on the East Coast. It was founded by Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs, who produces records for many of the artists on the roster.

“Fan sent me the pic its not the original from VIBE,” he further clarified.

For further proof, the TV host tweeted photos of him with Snoop and Dre in 1993 and a screenshot of his appearance in Snoop’s “Gin & Juice” music video that same year.

The Source reported that, although Moss has never been officially signed to Death Row, he became connected to the label when Dre and Snoop made a stop at Moss’ hometown of Columbus, Ohio, during their The Chronic Tour in 1993. The tour manager asked if anyone wanted to come onstage, and Moss was hoisted up by his mother and her boyfriend. His freestyle impressed Snoop and and at 5 years old, he opened the tour for Snoop. He was even heard on skits on Snoop’s explicit “Doggystyle” album.

According to the publication, Bow Wow was supposed to record an album with Death Row, but label discussions fell through and by 1998, Snoop left the label. Bow Wow was introduced to Jermaine Dupri and his rap career soared.

As much as Bow Wow may be joked about for flexing on social media, this time, he was right.

How online dating is changing who we marry in unexpected ways

Thanks to the rise of numerous dating apps and sites, such as TinderOKCupid or Match.com, dating culture has experienced a significant shift over the past two decades.

» RELATED: Tired of swiping for love? This new dating app sends you straight to the first date

And though online dating has received its fair share of bad press with accusations of fueling hook-up culture, stories of scam artists and of first dates gone wrongnew research shows online dating has influenced the nature of society in some positive ways.

>> Read more trending news

For their study, economics professors Josue Ortega at the University of Essex in the United Kingdom and Philipp Hergovich at the University of Vienna in Austria examined how online dating has changed the racial diversity of society.

» RELATED: Report: Every 3 hours, an online dater gets scammed

The authors hypothesized that internet dating services may be a driving force behind stronger marriages, interracial partnerships and a primary way for people to connect with those outside their social circles.

“Understanding the evolution of interracial marriage is an important problem, for intermarriage is widely considered a measure of social distance in our societies,” the authors told MIT Technology Review.

They created a simulated model network of men and women of different racial backgrounds in which everyone wants to marry a person of the opposite sex, but can only marry someone with whom they have a connection.

» RELATED: Atlanta ranked among worst cities for dating 

The model is a reflection of society, which Ortega and Hergovich said is essentially “a web of interlinked nodes.”

According to the professors, most people are connected to close friends and family (and some others) with about 100 nodes. And changing the network, like building new highways, can completely change how the network functions, they said.

» RELATED: What happened the year interracial marriages increased more than 400% in Georgia?

“Our model predicts nearly complete racial integration upon the emergence of online dating, even if the number of partners that individuals meet from newly formed ties is small,” Ortega and Hergovich told MIT Technology Review.

They then compared the model results with the rates of interracial marriage in the U.S.

Since the 1967 Loving v. Virginia U.S. Supreme Court case that legalized marriage across racial lines, intermarriage has increased steadily, according to the Pew Research Center.

In 2015, Pew found that 1 in 6 American newlyweds (17 percent) married a person of a different race or ethnicity. In 1967, only 3 percent did.

“It is intriguing that shortly after the introduction of the first dating websites in 1995, like Match.com, the percentage of new marriages created by interracial couples increased rapidly,” they said.

But it’s possible that, as MIT Technology Review noted, the reduction in the percentage of white Americans was a contributing factor in the rise of interracial marriages in the U.S.

» RELATED: RE:Race – AJC staffer Pete Corson on interracial marriage

Still, research authors said the change in the population’s composition can’t fully explain the huge increase in intermarriage.

Overall, according to Pew research, more and more American adults (approximately 39 percent in 2015) say interracial marriage is generally good for American society.

In 2010, 24 percent of American adults said it was a positive trend.

More from Pew Research Center.

The professors’ model also predicted that marriages established online are more robust and less likely to end in divorce, a hypothesis backed by previous research from the University of Florida in 2013.

The pre-published version of the study is available online at arxiv.org and is currently undergoing its full peer-review process.

Man emerges from woods after 10 years, accuses wife of forcing him out of the house

A gardener from Birmingham, England says he had no choice, but to flee from his wife of three years, who he blames for forcing him to live in the woods for a decade.

That’s according to Emmaus Greenwich, a homeless shelter in London, where Malcolm Applegate finally resurfaced.
