The distraught son of a late California scientist is suing a cryogenics firm and claims the lab wrongly cremated his father´s body and preserved only his head. Kurt Pilgeram claims in a new lawsuit against the Scottsdale, Arizona-based Alcor Life Extension Foundation that he received a package containing Dr. Laurence Pilgeram´s cremated body - which was allegedly against the family´s agreement. Legal documents obtained by The Telegraph state that Kurt opened the package that ´purportedly contained his father´s cremated remains, except allegedly for his father´s head.´ Laurence was 90 when he died from an apparent cardiac

Now yellow with 30 years of age on my refrigerator door is an old Far Side cartoon: Frozen Friends Cryogenic Enterprises with a large cooling unit with separate compartments for whole bodies (fully dressed) and just heads only and a warning to maintain minus-200 degrees. A workman for Bob´s Janitorial Services accidentally gets his feet tangled up in the power cord and unplugs the whole thing. The heads, especially, don´t look real happy to be there.

I recall Ted Williams´s body´s (or just head´s) travails. Pathetic. Frozen solid as a brickbat. Porcelain DNA. He ain´t coming back. Can´t he leave well enough alone? He still wants to come back! Why? Does he think he´ll still hit .406 as he did in ´41? Does he still covet the ´41 MVP that Joe DiMaggio beat him out of? Isn´t heaven good enough? Oh, maybe that´s why he wants to come back. Never mind.

Not having a body to go with the head is the least of the problems. Every bit of us are made up of cells that contain 85% water. Notice what frozen water does to containers? Shards of ice do that to every cell. So the task isn´t to thaw them out and fix what killed them, the task is to thaw them out and fix every single brain cell and make them work like they did before they died. Even in the inconceivable future where we could do such a thing, why would we? Maybe for a human demonstration experiment. Research lab rat? That what they hope for? Making new people is a lot more fun and more rewarding. The human popsicles paid to keep themselves frozen, there isn´t enough money in the world to repair the damage even if we could. It´s all silly.

#10 - I think the vision was to preserve the head until the contents of the mind could be transferred to something more-durable, with the hope that it is enough of the ´self´ to extend conscious existence indefinitely. Which would theoretically allow Ted to resume knocking the snot out of the ball in a freshly-minted android body.

Assuming we avoid civilizational suicide long enough to devise something worth even testing (only to discover that there´s far more to the ´self´ than the collective neural states in our noggins), it might have been so long since MLB saw a .400 hitter that even a Zombie Splinter would be considered a superstar.

An animal rescue organization is offering a reward for information after finding a dolphin shot to death in Manhattan Beach, California. Marine Animal Rescue, of El Segundo, posted a $5,000 reward to their Facebook page on Friday after a necropsy revealed a dolphin died from a gunshot wound. Peter Wallerstein, founder and president of the rescue group, received a call about the dolphin in the surf on the morning of Nov. 8 and managed to retrieve the animal with the help of a lifeguard.

Ancient Egyptians seem to have been "cat people," or at least cat mummy people. Researchers have dug up several mummified cats alongside about 100 wooden cat statues in a tomb complex near a pyramid built for the pharaoh Userkaf, who reigned from 2291 B.C. to 2289 B.C., the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities announced Nov. 10. The burials are located near the site of Saqqara in Egypt. Archaeologists are sorting out precisely when everything dates to, but it appears that sometime between 717 B.C. and 332 B.C.,

SALT LAKE CITY — The world-famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir will be singing the same tune but under a new name. The choir was renamed Friday to strip out the word Mormon in a move aimed at ending shorthand names for the religion that have been used for generations by church members and others. The singers will now be called the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said in a statement .

Los Angeles law enforcement are on the hunt for a woman who repeatedly stomped on a convenience store clerk and a man who shot him several times with a BB gun, putting him in hospital. The incident took place in broad daylight Wednesday when the woman brazenly walked into the outlet at a Hollywood gas station around 5pm and left without paying for a 12-pack of beer. Surveillance footage shows the employee run out and return with the alcohol but he didn´t expect what happened next.

Imagine your favorite celebrity reaching out to you on social media. At first you’re thrilled, but this brush with greatness can soon take a sinister turn. One that is costing people millions of dollars. CBS 2 Investigator Pam Zekman reports. Perhaps no other singer epitomizes the “glory days” of 1980’s rock ‘n roll like Bruce Springsteen. “I have been loving Bruce Springsteen since the 80’s, ever since i heard him and I thought, oh this guy is so handsome and has a good voice,” said “Mary” who asked us to conceal her identity.

Stanford University will remove Father Junipero Serra’s name from several high-profile campus features after a committee determined it would be the right thing to do, citing “the mission system’s violence against California Native Americans.” St. Junipero Serra was a hugely influential Catholic priest who helped found the California mission system. This was arguably his most significant accomplishment. But according to the committee, made up of faculty, students, staff and alumni, it is also his biggest sin, according to the report.

It took just two minutes on Sunday to prove that Denise Mueller-Korenek is the fastest bicyclist in the world ... two minutes and six long years of training, testing and team-building to set the new paced bicycle speed world record at Utah’s Bonneville Salt Flats. On Sunday afternoon, the 45-year-old Valley Center resident was officially recorded pedaling an average 183.9 miles per hour over one mile, breaking the existing 167-mph record set in 1995 by Dutchman Fred Rompelberg. The only person who’s seriously tried to beat him over the past 23 years is Mueller-Korenek,

A sordid new lawsuit charges the “worst nightmare of any woman” was a constant reality for ballerinas at the New York City Ballet — surreptitious, sexually explicit photos snapped and shared freely by their male colleagues. A 19-year-old dancer/victim, in a sleazy depiction of the venerable ballet as little more than an artsy “Animal House,” portrayed the organization as a perverted “breeding ground” for the sexual degradation of female dancers by their twisted male colleagues. Dancer Alexandra Waterbury alleged that she was victimized by hard-partying dancer Chase Finlay — named as co-defendant along with the ballet company.

It has been speculated that Mitt Romney’s Utah Senate seat could serve as a prelude to another Presidential run. In the most ambitious version of events, he could even challenge Donald Trump in the 2020 primaries, newly legitimized and augmented by his actions in the Capitol Building. This would allow moderate Republicans to reclaim their party’s mantle and unroot alt-right influences. But would Romney do it? His willingness to unequivocally challenge Trump could be seen either as a pro or con by Republicans, depending on their opinions of the sitting president.

Just hours after finishing a tumultuous election recount on Sunday, Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes submitted her resignation. “It is true. She did send it,” said Burnadette Norris-Weeks, an attorney who works as counsel to the Supervisor of Elections Office. Evelyn Perez-Verdia, a former office spokeswoman who left several years ago, said Sunday evening she was told by people in the office that the letter was sent “to Tallahassee” earlier in the day. Norris-Weeks said she saw an early draft of the letter. In the version she saw, she said Snipes, 75, expressed a desire to spend more time with her family.

Former first lady Michelle Obama’s memoir, Becoming, sold 725,000 copies on its first day on the market, making it the biggest opening for a book in 2018 under publishing company Penguin Random House. The figures include preorder and first-day sales of hardcover, audio, and ebook editions of the memoir sold in the U.S. and Canada, the Associated Press reported. The first-day sales for Becoming surpassed former first lady Hillary Clinton’s presidential memoir, Living History, which only sold 600,000 copies in its first week.

To look back at the moment John Kerry entered US public life, addressing the Senate foreign relations committee on 22 April 1971, is to be struck by many things. There are the famous words, of course: “How do you ask a man to be the last man to die in Vietnam? How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?” There is the shock of dark, Beatles-inspired hair, the distinctly British-tinged accent. Above all, there is the self-possession.

Championing the cause of the poor, Pope Francis on Sunday lamented that "the wealthy few" enjoy what, "in justice, belongs to all" and said Christians cannot remain indifferent to the growing cries of the exploited and the indigent, including migrants. Francis invited about 6,000 poor people as well as some of the volunteers who help them to the splendor of St. Peter´s Basilica where he celebrated Mass on a day the Catholic Church dedicates to the needy. Later, he sat down with 1,500 of the indigent for a lunch of lasagna, chicken, mashed potatoes and tiramisu in a Vatican auditorium.

An outrageous discussion unfolded on CNN recently focused on how most white women who voted for President Donald Trump must be “racist.”Only one of the all-female panel hosted by CNN’s Don Lemon pushed back in the discussion on why the president resonates with most white women, delivering a blistering take-down of the argument that white women who have a “deep investment in white supremacy” voted for Trump.

For someone who has thrust herself on the national stage, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sure has thin skin. The proud democratic socialist and newly elected congresswoman from New York has a knack for making confusing statements, or “word slips,” as she calls them, and is real quick to play the victim if anyone calls attention to them. Her latest flub occurred on Saturday when Ocasio-Cortez called for taking back “all three chambers of Congress,” before quickly correcting herself to say “all three chambers of government,” naming the presidency along with the House and Senate. “If we work our butts off to make

Broward County’s ballot recount hit yet another snag Saturday with 2,040 ballots lost or misplaced. The county’s eternally beleaguered Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said they were either misplaced, misfiled or mixed in with another stack. One thing she said she was sure of was that the ballots were still in the building. “The ballots are in this building. There would be nowhere else for them to be,” Snipes said. “The ballots are in the building. The ballots are in the building.” Snipes has been in the crosshairs of national controversy since Election Day. With a noon Sunday deadline looming,

In a lengthy, taped interview that aired on Sunday, Fox News´s Chris Wallace asked President Donald Trump some expected questions -- about the Mueller investigation, "fake news," the election, the Kashoggi murder, his divisive tone -- and then came something unexpected. Wallace wondered if Trump would try to amend the Constitution so he could serve a third term. The exchange began when Wallace asked the president to rank himself "in the pantheon of great presidents." "There is Lincoln and Washington, there´s FDR and Reagan. Do you make the top 10?" Wallace asked Trump. "I think I´m doing a great job," Trump said. "I would
