Man who robbed bank to get away from wife sentenced to home confinement


A Kansas man who robbed a bank last September and told police that he was hoping to get caught so he would get prison time to escape his wife was sentenced Tuesday to six months of home confinement after pleading guilty, the Kansas City Star reported.

Lawrence John Ripple took the guilty plea in January. He told the judge Tuesday that he had heart surgery that left him depressed when he committed the bank robbery, the paper reported.

His public defender told the court that Ripple had lived a law-abiding life and was in a stable relationship with his wife. He has four stepchildren, the report said.

Ripple handed a note to a bank teller in Kansas City demanding cash and warning he had a gun. Ripple took the money, $2,924, and went to sit in the lobby, where he told a guard he was the “guy he was looking for.”

Afternoon AaaaaH! Ocean Waves. Relaxation break.

Only 55 seconds but I think we could all use a bit of relaxation

Scientists have discovered a sea of fresh water under the ocean


As told in the latest issue of the peer-reviewed journal Scientific Reports, scientists from Columbia University and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution spent 10 days on a research ship towing electromagnetic sensors from New Jersey to Massachusetts. By measuring the way electromagnetic waves traveled through fresh and saline water, researchers mapped out fresh-water reservoirs for the first time.

It turns out the subterranean pools stretch for at least 50 miles off the US Atlantic coast, containing vast stores of low-salinity groundwater, about twice the volume of Lake Ontario. The deposits begin about 600 ft (183 m) below the seafloor and stretch for hundreds of miles. That rivals the size of even the largest terrestrial aquifers.

“We knew there was fresh water down there in isolated places, but we did not know the extent or geometry,” said lead author Chloe Gustafson, a PhD candidate at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, according to Phys.org. “It could turn out to be an important resource in other parts of the world.”

The size and extent of the freshwater deposits suggest they are also being fed by modern-day runoff from land—and may exist elsewhere with similar topography.

Trump threatens 'great and overwhelming force' if Iran attacks 'anything American'

Source: The Hill

President Trump on Tuesday responded to disparaging comments from the Iranian president by threatening Tehran with "great and overwhelming force" if it attacks "anything American."

"Iran leadership doesn't understand the words 'nice' or 'compassion,' they never have," Trump tweeted. "Sadly, the thing they do understand is Strength and Power, and the USA is by far the most powerful Military Force in the world, with 1.5 Trillion Dollars invested over the last two years alone."

"Iran's very ignorant and insulting statement, put out today, only shows that they do not understand reality," Trump added. "Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force. In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration. No more John Kerry & Obama!"

Trump on Monday told The Hill in an exclusive interview that he does not need congressional approval to strike Iran.

The comments differ from some congressional leaders, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who have said the president must seek permission from Congress before carrying out a strike.

I agree with Trump


When coming in second changes your life. Short story of a broke golfer....until yesterday

Second is the best: Sucher resurrects career with 'life-changing' T-2 at Travelers


Considering the amount of money PGA Tour pros play for – and the fact that they play golf for a living – casual observers don’t often associate Tour life and hard times. The assumption is that these guys are insulated from some of the real-life concerns of society at large. That’s because a lot of them are.

But not all of them. And not Sucher.

“We had seven months with no income at all coming in two years ago,” he said. “During that, we had to take out some credit cards.”

When it was time for a return to golf, Sucher was armed with six starts to make up 347 FedExCup points – no easy task for even a healthy, competitively sharp pro. And then there was the matter of the early-season Korn Ferry Tour schedule, when Sucher played events in Colombia and Panama. You can make a lot of money on Tour, and you can spend a lot, too. Players are responsible for their own travel and food and lodging, plus whatever arrangements they’ve worked out with their caddies.

Sucher hadn’t earned a check on Tour in over a year, but he had to go play. In a tweet Sunday night, he thanked his wife for sticking by his side and allowing him to "risk our house by taking out loans and maxing out credit cards to afford my travel expenses."

“I know that like two months ago we had credit card debt. So I know we don't have that anymore.”
