Another claim (Gizmodo) was that he'd taken on a few other work-at-home developer jobs, and outsourced those to the same outfit... pulling in 300K, paying 50K to those doing the work.

I'm surprised they didn't promote him to the role of CEO to help them kill off more positions.

It's Fox, so it must be true.

A professor of genetics at Harvard’s Medical School believes he’s capable of bringing the long-extinct Neanderthal back to life -- all he’s lacking is the right mother.

He's calling the report “entirely untrue” and suggesting the confusion comes from a poor translation of something he told Germany’s Der Spiegel magazine. “The real story here is how these stories have percolated and changed in different ways... I’m sure we’ll get it sorted out eventually.” “I’m certainly not advocating it…I’m saying, if it is technically possible someday, we need to start talking about it today,”

But that story doesn't sell as well as the first report...

Norway goat cheese fire closes tunnel:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-21141244
About 27 tonnes of caramelised brown goat cheese - a delicacy known as Brunost - caught light as it was being driven through the Brattli Tunnel at Tysfjord, northern Norway, last week. The fire raged for five days and smouldering toxic gases were slowing the recovery operation, officials said.


Hate when that happens.
