A circus dwarf, nicknamed Od, died recently in the North when he bounced sideways from a trampoline and was swallowed by a yawning hippopotamus which was waiting to appear in the next act. Vets on the scene said Hilda the Hippo had a gag reflex which automatically caused her to swallow. They added in mitigation that the hefty creature was a vegetarian who had not previously digested a circus performer. Unfortunately, the 1000 plus spectators continued to applaud wildly until common sense dictated there had been a tragic mistake. Police said the trampoline has been sent for forensic analysis.

"Years ago we thought, we'll just take the dams out and see what happens," says Rod Wittler of the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. "We're learning how to think it through. We haven't taken any large, large dams down and that's why we're so dependent on computer modeling to tell us how to make this work."
Dam removal plans have proliferated in recent years, as evidence mounts that many dams are not only obsolete, but have hindered or blocked natural processes, including bringing sand to beaches and allowing fish to reproduce. Plans to remove the Matilija Dam have been in the works since the late 1990s, but planners have struggled with the best method of demolishing the structure without damaging life and property downstream.

Several schemes are detailed: iPod to iPod, iPod to base station, iPod to iPod via base station. This opens the way for direct downloads from the iTunes Store, and possibly from dedicated booths. Imagine going to a gig and then downloading the recording to your iPod. This, along with yesterday's Zune wireless patent story, points at some shake ups in the wireless musical world. The big difference, though, is that iPod owners will actually be able to find someone to share with.

DEARBORN, Mich. — Ford has announced that it will use soybean-based foam cushions, co-developed with Lear Corp., in the 2008 Mustang. The automaker says the move will "eventually" save "thousands of barrels of oil" that are traditionally used to make petroleum-based foam for vehicle seats.The soy-containing seatbacks and cushions will be installed in the Mustang at the Flat Rock (Michigan) Mazda-Ford Auto Alliance International assembly plant. Ford says this is the industry's first use of the soy-based flexible foam. However, the automaker also notes that it has a history of using soy in vehicles that goes back to the Model T — which had 60 pounds' worth of soy in its paint and molded plastic parts.
