Good Morning MOtleyville, It's Saturday May 11th, 2013

MOT is here every morning @ 6:30 am.
They found a woman alive in the collasped building in Bangladesh !

They find a survivor in Bangladish after 17 days trapped

The woman survived in a Muslim prayer room in the basement of the eight-story Rana Plaza building, where crews have been focused on recovering bodies, not rescuing survivors, for days. Trapped in wreckage finally exposed by heavy equipment, she waved a pipe to attract attention.

The crews ordered the cranes and bulldozers to immediately stop work and used handsaws and welding and drilling equipment to cut through the iron rod and debris still trapping her. They gave her water, oxygen and saline as they worked to free her.

When the woman, whom soldiers identified as Reshma, was freed after 40 minutes, the crowd erupted in wild cheers. She appeared to be in remarkably good shape despite her ordeal, and was rushed to a military hospital in an ambulance.

Abdur Razzak, a warrant officer with the military's engineering department who first spotted her in the wreckage, said she could even walk.

Silly String gets 20 year old arrested

It all started as a lighthearted prank at a powder puff football game, but ended with a 20-year-old in jail for Silly String.

As farcical as that may sound, it accurately describes what occurred near Palm Beach, Fla. on Tuesday, when a recent high school graduate was arrested for aggravated battery after he allegedly sprayed a Jupiter (Fla.) High staff member in the face with Silly String.

According to the Palm Beach Post, Joshua Melvin was one of four men who raided an annual Jupiter powder puff football game -- competed between girls rather than guys, without pads – and rushed onto the field wearing a ski mask and wielding a can of Silly String. Because a Jupiter staff member couldn’t tell what was inside the aerosol can that Melvin was carrying, he or she chased after the man to try and tackle him. When that staff member got close, he or she got a face full of Silly String.

John Lennon's fist car to be auctioned


When you first passed your driving test, did you have mounds of luxury dealerships surrounding your home, desperate to sell you an exotic sports car? If you’re one of The Beatles you did. Amongst the Maseratis, Aston Martins, and Jaguar E-Types, John Lennon decided a 1965 Ferrari 330GT would make a perfect first car. That very machine is about to head to auction, and stands to sell for around $340,000.

After recording their number one hit, Ticket to Ride, in February 1965, Lennon went on to pass his driving test that same month. Of course, as a member of The Beatles, nothing occurred without the world catching wind, and once the media reported his successful test, dealerships went on the prowl. With his Kenwood home in Surrey, England, swarming with hungry car salesmen, Lennon reportedly strolled out unfazed and began inspecting the stunning collection of vehicles parked out front.

The one that caught his eye was an all-blue Ferrari, worth at the time around $10,000, and one of only 500 built. With his newly earned ticket, Lennon purchased his ride, keeping the car until October 1967, amassing over 20,000 miles. The car heading to Bonhams auction in Goodwood July 12, presents the original registration plate (DUL 4C) and has the same engine and chassis that the singer drove nearly 46 years ago. It will line up alongside Fangio’s 1954 grand prix winning Mercedes-Benz Formula One car.

Sholto Gilbertson, Senior Specialist in the Bonhams Motor Car Department, said: “It is a wonderful commentary on the early excitement generated by ‘Beatlemania’ that John Lennon didn’t even have to leave his house to buy his first car.”

Thieves steel 45 million from ATM's
Police say a group of hackers and street thieves in 27 countries nabbed a fortune without setting foot in a single bank

Federal prosecutors in New York announced on Thursday that police had arrested seven suspects in one of the biggest bank heists in history — and none of the hundreds of people involved in 27 countries used a gun or bomb threat, or even set foot inside a bank lobby. U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch compared the sophisticated, "surgical" heist — which netted $45 million in two separate operations — to the casino-theft movie Ocean's Eleven. (Watch an NBC News report on the heist below.)

The network of hackers and street criminals "participated in a massive 21st century bank heist that reached across the internet and stretched around the globe," Lynch said at a news conference. The plot sounds ready-made for Hollywood. To give a sense of the scope of this operation, here are some key numbers:

$45 million
Amount stolen in a matter of hours in two ATM-withdrawal sprees, on Dec. 22, 2012, and Feb. 19-20, 2013
