  • TOKYO -- Nissan Motor Co. said on Wednesday it conducted uncertified vehicle checks as recently as last week even after revealing the widespread misconduct at its domestic factories. Japan's second-largest automaker has recalled all 1.2 million new cars it sold in Japan over the past three years after discovering final vehicle checks for the domestic market were not performed by certified technicians. An internal investigation discovered the latest misconduct at affiliate Nissan Shatai Co.'s Shonan factory on Oct. 11, a Nissan spokesman told Reuters by email. At a news conference on Oct. 2, CEO Hiroto Saikawa said only certified technicians had conducted checks since Sept. 20.

  • A Florida man has been awarded nearly $40,000 after Orlando police busted him during a traffic stop for methamphetamine possession—even though the small, crystalline flakes were actually crumbs from a glazed donut, as he tried to convince the arresting officers at the time.Florida Man doesn't usually catch a break around these parts, but NPR reports it's a happy ending for 64-year-old Daniel Rushing after his Kafkaesque nightmare began back in December 2015. Rushing had stopped by an Orlando 7-Eleven to give an older employee he knew a ride home from work.

  • A day after Israel's counter attack on a Syrian SA-5 surface-to-air missile site we are learning more about the incident, and unfortunately, some questionable outlets and commentators are spreading rumors that imply one of Israel's F-35Is was the aircraft targeted by Syrian missiliers, and that the aircraft was damaged in the attack.It appears that the first sortie put "more than one" aircraft “within the effective range” of the Syrian SA-5 missile that fired at the flight according to an Israeli Defense Forces spokesman. The engagement supposedly occurred at around 9AM local time. It remains unclear the exact mix of Israeli aircraft that were in the air at that time. Some reports state it was a flight of F-16s, others tell us it was a composite flight including an F-15C executing photo reconnaissance duties while operating closer to the border than its escorts. As mentioned in our first article on the incident, the F-15C is known to carry large tactical reconnaissance pods ..
