Attack at Wyoming College Proves Fatal

Source: New York Times

Three people were killed on Friday, including two people who died during an attack while class was in session at a Wyoming community college, the police said.

Many details about the attack, which occurred before 9 a.m., remained unclear late Friday afternoon. The Casper police declined to specify what type of weapon had been used or to discuss a possible motive.

A second victim, who was female, was apparently killed off campus, authorities said.

The attacker, who was male, committed suicide, said Chief Chris Walsh of the Casper Police.

Very sad.

What kind of internet connection do you have?

There is a discussion in the photography group about upping the max size limit for photos. I think that we should poll DUers to see what kind of bandwidth we are dealing with here on average to help us in coming up with a solution.

You can use this website to measure your speed if you don't know. Please hit the poll when you are done.

Mine is terribly slow as I live in the middle of nowhere.

Feel free to kick this thread to the top of the pile so we can collect more info.

Thank you all for participating.

If you don't want to sit on juries for groups that you don't like

You can trash that group and not only will you no longer see that group's postings anymore, you will NOT be called for jury duty for that group. (according to Sid )

So take this opportunity to trash it up!

November 2K12 Photo Contest: My Submission In Color- Yours too!


Post yours too! Let's discuss.

***Autumn Photo Contest Winners***** "What is your muse?"

Congratulations to all! This was a fun contest to run. Autumn is my favorite season and living in Ohio you really get the full effect of Fall.

I love hosting things like this. We may not agree on all subjects at all times, but it's great that we can take a step back and enjoy the things that make this world beautiful and life worth living.

The arts are a part of my life that I couldn't do without, but there is no creation without inspiration. So for this contest we started at the beginning. Now we have come full circle. Thank you to all that participated.

Child mauled to death by African painted dogs at Pittsburgh Zoo Read more: http://www.post-gazette.

Source: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Officials of the Pittsburgh Zoo & Aquarium confirmed this afternoon that a little boy was mauled to death today after falling into the African painted dog exhibit.
The incident occurred at 11:48 a.m. at the Highland Park complex, according to emergency dispatch supervisor. The zoo was shut down within a half-hour of the incident and will remain closed indefinitely.

Pittsburgh police officers and keepers attempted to lure the dogs away but one "aggressive" dog was shot and killed by an officer. Ms. Baker commended the officer, noting the dog would not move away from the child.
She said the zoo initially declared a "code blue," meaning an accident involving a human had occurred. That was followed with a "code red," meaning that there was a serious human emergency in play.

Very sad and disturbing. There need to be more security measures in place when such dangerous animals are involved.
