Trivia Question from Yesterday

What do The Bridge over the River Kwai (Le Pont de la Rivière Kwai) and Planet of the Apes (La Planète des Singes), have in common?

Guitar Fetches $334,000 At Auction


A guitar given to Elvis Presley by his father in 1969 went under the hammer for $334,000 in New York during an auction that also saw a Michael Jackson vest fetch $256,000.

Vernon Presley is said to have changed the finish of the Gibson Dove acoustic guitar to ebony after his son earned his black belt in karate.

It beat auction house Julien's estimate of $200,000 to $300,000 for Saturday's sale.

Another highlight of the auction was a red neoprene vinyl jacket created by Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush for Michael Jackson to wear during the 1996-1997 HIStory world tour.

It scored more than four times the auctioneers' estimate of $40,000 to $60,000.

Lands In Hometown Of Wright Brothers

Solar Impulse 2

Two Swiss pilots have brought their campaign for renewable energy and innovation to the hometown of the brothers that recorded the first powered flight.

André Borschberg and Bertrand Piccard landed the Solar Impulse 2 - a plane powered only by the sunlight gathered by the 17,000 solar cells that bedeck its wings - Saturday night in Dayton, Ohio, the home of Orville and Wilbur Wright.

The symbolism was not lost on Mr. Borschberg and Mr. Piccard, even after a nearly 17-hour flight from Tulsa, Oklahoma.

"The Wright brothers inspired Solar Impulse from the beginning of our adventure," Borschberg and Piccard wrote on their blog. "While there are always people who try to disprove the feasibility of what you are trying to do, people who have learned from the Wright brothers have learnt to push forward."

The pair acknowledge that the Solar Impulse 2, with its unheated and unpressurized cabin and room for just two, might not have immediate applications for commercial aviation. But it could lend insight into improving technologies on the ground, as well as emphasize the importance of renewable energy to the aviation industry, the fastest-growing source of manmade greenhouse gas emissions.

In Wake Of Northwest Wildfires

Mushroom Hunting

From flames come fungi.

That means mushroom hunters are checking maps outlining last year's many Northwest wildfires before heading into forests this month searching for the easily identifiable and woodsy-tasting morels.

"It's going to be a good season for finding morel mushrooms, there's no doubt about that," said Brian Harris, spokesman for the Payette National Forest in Idaho.

The spongey-looking delicacies have defied commercial cultivation and can retail for $20 a pound.

Nearly a million acres of U.S. Forest Service land burned last year in Idaho, Oregon and Washington, the National Interagency Fire Center said. Maps of specific wildfire perimeters are available online at the Forest Service's InciWeb.

Geneva Wine Auction


A Geneva auction house raked in more than $4 million Sunday for a collection of "grand crus" from Burgundy's renowned Domaine de la Romanee-Conti wine estate.

The 1,407 bottles that went under the hammer beat expectations and sold for a total of 4.2 million Swiss francs ($4.3 million, 3.8 million euros), with a single three-litre jeroboam of 1999 Romanee-Conti snatched up for 60,000 Swiss francs by an anonymous buyer.

Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, which takes its name from its most famous vineyard, is widely considered to be one of the world's finest wine producers.

Stored in perfect conditions for the past 15 years at the heavily-guarded Geneva Freeports customs-free zone, the bottles belong to a single investor who has asked to remain anonymous.

Site Allows Scientists To Correct Media Errors

Climate Feedback

In one case, a writer claimed a mini Ice Age would befall Earth in 15 years. In another, an op-ed touted global warming as saving countless people from freezing to death.

A new project called Climate Feedback, run by a French scientist living in California, took these and other stories to task, and in the past year has critiqued climate change stories in the New York Times, Rolling Stone, the Telegraph, Forbes magazine, the Wall Street Journal and more.

Interested readers can visit the website to see what climate scientists thought of the original article.

The site uses web annotation software to enable line-by-line critiques from more than 100 volunteer scientists, pointing out what they see as errors, falsehoods and misrepresentations.

Founder Emmanuel Vincent, 31, said the project is about communication, not activism.

"A Lot of Vipers"

Elijah Wood

Elijah Wood is speaking out on the dangers of child abuse hidden within Hollywood. The Telegraph reported that in an interview with the Sunday Times, the Lord of the Rings star expressed that abuse within the industry still exists and is kept under wraps by those with power in Hollywood.

"There are a lot of vipers in this industry, people who only have their own interests in mind," said Wood. The actor, who currently stars alongside Nicolas Cage in The Trust, compared child abuse in Hollywood to the Jimmy Savile abuse scandal in the U.K. where the late entertainment host sexually abused boys and girls without being charged.

"You all grew up with Savile - Jesus, it must have been devastating," said Wood. "There is a darkness in the underbelly - if you can imagine it, it's probably happened."

While child actor Corey Feldman (The Goonies, Gremlins) says he is among those in Hollywood that are victims of abuse, Wood said his mother's efforts to restrict him from attending Hollywood parties at a young age helped him from being caught up in the dangerous side of Hollywood.

The Telegraph also reported that Anne Henry - the co-founder of Bizparents, which provides support to child actors - says that her organization is currently supporting 100 abusers and that a "tsunami" of claims were on the way.

Killer's Gun Sells


A Florida neighborhood watchman (cough, cough) has sold for $250,000 the gun he used to kill unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin, auctioneers said.

United Gun Group, which hosted the auction on its website, confirmed Saturday the amount of the sale of the Kel-Tec PF-9, a 9mm pistol.

The price, also reported by television stations in Nevada and Florida a day earlier, far exceeded the market value of a secondhand weapon.

The very fact that the weapon was even being auctioned off had triggered a major backlash due to the nature of 17-year-old Martin's 2012 shooting.

Animal-To-Man Diseases

Environmental Threat

The most worrying environmental threats facing the world today range from the rise in diseases transmitted from animals to humans to the increasing accumulation of toxic chemicals in food crops as a result of drought and high temperatures, according to a U.N. report released Friday.

The U.N. Environment Agency's Frontiers report also highlighted the threat to human health posed by the alarming amount of plastic waste in the oceans, and scientific evidence suggesting that losses and damage from climate change are inevitable, with "profound consequences" for ecosystems, people, assets and economies.

According to the report, the 20th century saw dramatic reductions in ecosystems and biodiversity - and equally dramatic increases in the numbers of people and domestic animals inhabiting the Earth.

This increased the opportunity for viruses, bacteria and other pathogenic agents to pass from wild and domestic animals through the environment to cause diseases in people, the report said.

These diseases - called "zoonotic" or "zoonoses" diseases - include Ebola, bird flu, Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), sudden acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), Rift Valley fever, West Nile virus and Zika virus, it said.

Weekend Box Office

'Angry Birds'

"Captain America" has found a worthy competitor in a bunch of flightless birds. "The Angry Birds Movie" soared to $39 million in its debut weekend, knocking "Captain America: Civil War" off its first-place perch, while new adult comedies "Neighbors 2" and the "The Nice Guys" struggled to get their footing, according to comScore estimates Sunday.

Rovio Animation spearheaded the production of "The Angry Birds Movie," which cost around $73 million to make, and it opened strong internationally last weekend. The film has already earned $150 million worldwide, according to estimates from Sony, which is distributing the film.

"Neighbors 2" brought in only $21.8 million - less than half of the first film's $49 million opening in 2014. But the film from director Nick Stoller also cost only $35 million to make.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

    1. "The Angry Birds Movie," $39 million ($55.5 million international).
    2. "Captain America: Civil War," $33.1 million ($30.7 million international).
    3. "Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising," $21.8 million ($6 million international).
    4. "The Nice Guys," $11.3 million.
    5. "The Jungle Book," $11 million ($7.4 million international).
    6. "Money Monster," $7.1 million ($2.8 million international).
    7. "The Darkness," $2.4 million.
    8. "Zootopia," $1.7 million ($4.7 million international).
    9. "The Huntsman: Winter's War," $1.2 million ($610,000 international).
   10. "Mother's Day," $1.1 million ($485,000 international).

In Memory

Nick Menza

Nick Menza, former drummer for the influential metal band Megadeth, died after collapsing on stage during a performance of his progressive jazz trio in Southern California, a family spokesman said Sunday.

Menza's latest band OHM was three songs into a semi-regular set at a Los Angeles-area club Saturday night when the drummer collapsed, J. Marshall Craig told The Associated Press. Friends and audience members rendered aid while paramedics were called.

The 51-year-old died at the club of a suspected massive heart attack, Craig said.

Menza was Megadeth's longest-serving drummer, performing on five records over nine years, including 1990's thrash metal landmark, "Rust In Peace."

After leaving Megadeth in 1998, Menza pursued an interest in jazz and became an accomplished woodworker.

Menza's autobiography, co-written by Craig, will detail the drummer's life in and out of music and is set for a July release.

He is survived by his mother and father, the jazz saxophonist Don Menza, and two sons.

Lotus-shaped illuminated lanterns float during Vesak celebrations on Beira Lake in Colombo, Sri Lanka, May 22, 2016. Vesak is a holiday with a majority population of Buddhists. The day marks the birth, enlightenment and demise of Buddha and is celebrated in Sri Lanka with illuminated pandals, lanterns and 'dansals' or free offer of food, drinks and refreshment to the wayfarers. This year, most of these dansals were absent following devastating monsoonal floods and landslides in some areas.
