OCEAN CITY, Md. — On Sept. 11, Michael Funk was cleaning crab pots at his bayside condominium; four days later he was dead, the victim of flesh-eating bacteria. For Marcia Funk, his wife of 46 years, his death is compounded by what she called a lack of information here about the bacteria, Vibrio vulnificus. "I really feel they kept it quiet because it's a tourist resort," Marcia Funk said. "It's like something out of a horror movie." The bacteria, along with about a dozen others that are related, occurs naturally in areas of warm, brackish waters with low salinity. Most of the 80,000 people who become ill across the USA each year consume raw or under-cooked seafood, according to the Centers for

At some point in the season, the Dallas Cowboys’ newest players are hazed in a particularly expensive way — buying dinner for their undoubtedly hungry teammates. At this year’s “rookie dinner,” newcomers like quarterback Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott racked up a beyond massive bill at a Dallas steakhouse. A photo of a receipt detailing $50,341.65 in pricey steaks, shrimp cocktail, and caviar from Nick & Sam’s was reportedly posted to defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford’s Snapchat account on October 19, and was later posted to Twitter by a Cowboys fan site.

She was a 24-year-old substitute teacher. He was a 17-year-old high school student. And over the course of an illicit, months-long relationship during the 2015-2016 school year in Cedar Rapids, she admits, the pair had sex “hundreds of times.” Mary Beth Haglin was charged in July with sexual exploitation by a teacher. But now, Haglin claims that not only is she innocent of committing any crime, she’s actually the victim in the relationship. Haglin appeared on the “Dr. Phil” show this week and accused the student of hatching an elaborate plan of romantic seduction, then threatening to “burn her life down” if she ended the relationship. In recent months, Haglin claims, she’s been fired from her
Bellator light heavyweight attraction Quinton Jackson will have to beg Fedor Emelianenko for a spot on the magic bus after his prized Lamborghini burst into flames this week. Fortunately, the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 205-pound kingpin hasn’t felt the pain of losing in quite some time, having turned away Satoshi Ishii earlier this year in the Bellator 157 main event. When and where Jackson fights next remains a mystery, but with Chael Sonnen and Tito Ortiz fighting later this year (more on that showdown here), there is a pretty good chance “Rampage” could fight the winner, or campaign for a “super fight” against free agent Emelianenko, who may or may not find himself on Spike.
IBM says that it has saved millions of dollars by getting employees to use Apple Macs rather than Windows PCs, as Windows machines apparently cost three times more in support than Macs. Fletcher Previn, IBM's vice president of workplace as a service, is essentially the head of the conglomerate's IT department, and after years of experience in managing Windows PCs for large corporations, he decided things needed to change. The Jamf National User tech conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota is held annually to discuss how enterprises use Jamf software to manage the huge numbers of computers and devices, as well as how internal software needed by different teams of employees is deployed across corporations.
