“Slayer is devastated to inform that their bandmate and brother, Jeff Hanneman, passed away at about 11 a.m. this morning near his Southern California home,” the band announced on its website.
Hanneman had been off the road since 2011 after he contracted necrotizing fasciitis, a flesh-eating disease, from a spider bite that nearly cost him his arm. The disease is believed to have contributed to his death, a rep for the band told The Associated Press.
Hanneman was a founding member of Slayer, along with fellow guitarist Kerry King, and had played on all 10 of the band’s studio releases.
He is survived by his wife Kathy, his sister Kathy, and his brothers Michael and Larry.
A small dog survived six days locked in a car without food or water. Zipper the pug-beagle mix was discovered inside the vehicle in a Seattle parking lot on Sunday.
Security guards working in the area found Zipper frightened and shaking. With the help of local police, they were eventually able free him from the car. The guards gave the little dog some food and water before releasing him to the Seattle Animal Shelter.
As reported by KOMO News, the vehicle’s owner was not in the area. Guards recall that the car was sitting in the lot for at least six days.
Officers with the Seattle police department eventually located a man who was supposed to be caring for the dog, as his girlfriend was out-of-town.
The boyfriend has not been charged, as officers have not proven how long the dog was locked inside the car. If they can prove Zipper was in the car for six days, without food or water, the man could be charged with neglect.
Renee Witt of the Seattle police department stated that they will be discussing reasonable pet care with the boyfriend.
Food and water are not the only concerns for animals locked inside a car. Like people, dogs are also at risk of heat stroke. As discussed by, a car parked in direct sunlight on days that reach temperatures above 60 degrees can be dangerous for a dog. It only takes 15 minutes for a dog to overheat.
Experts point out that parking a car in the shade, or rolling down windows, might not be enough to keep temperatures safe inside the car. Additionally, a dog may escape or injure itself attempting to escape through an open window.
Dogs do not sweat like humans. Dogs only sweat through their paws and cool themselves by panting.
Reasonable Pet Care ….. WTF??????
The crew team at New York’s Marist College came across a puzzling sight this week when a large, foam head, floating in the Hudson River, crossed their path toward the end of their morning row.
While on the river Monday morning, crew coach Matt Lavin was the first to spot the mysterious 7-foot-high, fiberglass-c0vered head, which is 4 to 5 feet wide. The ominous sighting gave the coach pause, and he had his team stay back as he approached to investigate.
“[Lavin] was in a small motor boat beside the team,” Greg Cannon, director of public affairs for the Poughkeepsie school, told ABCNews.com. “He didn’t know what it was at first, but saw it was an obstruction that would have been in the way of the shipping channel. So he went out to investigate.”
Once he realized he wasn’t in a scene from “The Planet of the Apes” and that it wouldn’t be terribly heavy, he wrapped a line around the head and towed it himself. The crew team then helped him pull in from the water.
“They pulled it in and it’s some kind of Styrofoam core with a fiberglass shell over it,” Cannon said. “Enough of the foam was exposed that it got water logged. It had gotten pretty heavy. Members of the team helped drag it up onto the dock.”
As for where the head came from, that’s still a mystery, but Cannon said he’s open to any theories.
The most compelling theory he has heard? The head is from a Mardi Gras float, was washed away by Hurricane Katrina and, eight years later, somehow ended up in the Hudson River.
Cannon laughed that off, but said that it could be close.
“It could have been washed away in a storm,” he said, “maybe even Sandy.” www.myshirtrocks.com has been contacted to make a shirt…..
