Massive sinkhole stops transit tunnelling in downtown Ottawa Jon Willing, QMI Agency , Last Updated: 3:07 PM ET OTTAWA — LRT officials on Friday couldn’t explain why the road above a downtown tunnel excavation caved in, forcing workers to pull their equipment to safety. Tunnelling at the city’s east portal is on hold until the Rideau Transit Group, the city’s LRT contractor, determines the cause of the road collapse on Waller St., south of Laurier Ave. “We can only confirm it was located directly above when tunnel excavation was occurring and at this point we cannot confirm its root cause,” deputy city manager Nancy Schepers said during a press conference. Geotechnical experts haven’t identified other safety concerns, Schepers said. “I can assure you that all steps are being taken to, first, protect the public and all physical assets in the immediate area. Around 10 p.m. According to RTG construction director Tim Stewart, the collapse happened above the crown of the tunnel, which is about five metres down from road level.

TechCrunch Sinkhole Nearly Swallows Garbage Truck The temperature warm-up and snow meltdown may have contributed to a string of water main breaks across the City of Philadelphia on Friday. The largest of 10 active water main breaks in the city occurred on the 1300 block of N. Wanamaker St. in West Philadelphia, where a sinkhole opened up on a flooded street, nearly swallowing a city garbage truck. "I could feel the pipes rumbling beneath my feet and the ground shaking," resident Zahir Yancey said as he described the moments before the hole opened up. "It looks like a cave. Gladys Holliday, who also lives on the block, says she saw the entire incident unfold. "This morning around six you could hear the water running down the street and then it's like, with little creases, you could see the water coming up," she said. "He (the garbage truck driver) got right here and then boom, he went down, water came gooshing out and the man jumped out. Several residents have been left without water or gas while the break is being repaired.

The Verge 911/93/noplane.htm American Free Press visited Somerset County to look into some of the questions surrounding United Airlines Flight 93, which allegedly turned over and crashed in a refilled strip mine between Lambertsville and Shanksville, Pa., taking 44 lives with it. Many local residents believe the plane was shot down, which they say would explain why parts of the plane and its contents were found strewn over a large area. One question, “is what happened to the physical wreckage of the plane?” “There was no plane,” Ernie Stull, mayor of Shanksville, told German television in March 2003: “My sister and a good friend of mine were the first ones there,” Stull said. “They were standing on a street corner in Shanksville talking. “They had been sent here because of a crash, but there was no plane?” “No. When AFP asked Stull about his comments, he disagreed about when he had gone to the crash site. “I never saw that smoke,” Paula Long, an eyewitness, told AFP.

Blog do Barbi-Carlos Barbieri Hackers leak '1 MILLION records' on Apple fanbois from FEDS High performance access to file storage Hackers have dumped online the unique identification codes for one million Apple iPhones and iPads allegedly lifted from an FBI agent's laptop. The leak, if genuine, proves Feds are walking around with data on at least 12 million iOS devices. The 20-byte ID codes were, we're told, copied from a file extracted from the Dell notebook of a senior federal agent, who was tracking the activities of hacktivists in LulzSec, Anonymous and related groups. Once his computer was infiltrated by the hackers, a file was allegedly seized containing 12 million device records that included Unique Device Identifiers (UDIDs), usernames and push notification tokens as well as a smaller number of names, mobile phone numbers, addresses and zip codes. The listed UDIDs, which include gadget serial numbers and other data so apps can distinguish between individual devices, appear to be genuine.
