Thirty-three high school cheerleaders from Dallas and Midland were involved in a scuffle at a camp in San Marcos this week. Texas State University police were investigating a scuffle that occurred Monday as the four-day Universal Cheerleaders Association camp was winding down.

Squads from two high schools were preparing to check out when the Skyline girls staying on the fifth floor began knocking on the doors of the Midland cheerleaders on the fourth floor, he said. Some of the Midland cheerleaders came into the hall. Shouting, pushing and shoving ensued before someone called police, Mr. Hendricks said.

Cell phones light up room for operation during blackout.

The light from the cell phone screens allowed surgeons to complete an emergency appendix operation during a blackout in a city in central Argentina, reports said on Saturday.

Leonardo Molina, 29, was on the operating table on July 21, when the power went out in. "The generator, which should have been working correctly, didn't work," a hospital spokesman, whose name was not given, told TN television news station.

"The surgeons and anesthetists were in the dark... A family member got some cell phones together from people in the hallway and took them in to provide light," he said.

Ricardo Molina, 39, Leonardo's brother, told La Nacion newspaper that the lights were out for an hour and his brother's anesthesia was wearing off. Hospital Director Dario Maurer told La Nacion the surgery was without light a maximum of 20 minutes. » Article here

Paris Hilton has lost her inheritance [cheers, loud noises].

Paris Hilton is $60 million out of pocket after her billionaire grandfather - appalled by her jail term for drink-driving offences - axed her inheritance.

Family patriarch Barron Hilton was already embarrassed by his granddaughter's wild behaviour - notably when her home sex video was leaked on the internet. But the 79-year-old considered her 23-day sentence last month the last straw.
"He was, and is, extremely embarrassed by how the Hilton name has been sullied by Paris," says Jerry Oppenheimer, who wrote a biography of the clan called House Of Hilton.

"He now doesn't want to leave unearned
wealth to his family." Hilton senior, the only member of the family left with a sizeable stake in the huge hotel chain, has let it be known that he intends to donate to charity the $2.4bn he will gain from this month's sale of the company to private equity firm Blackstone. The money will go to the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, the charity set up in the name of the founder of the family business. » Article here

Dude dies after cop confrontation during exoricism

A 48-year-old man whom authorities say was choking his 3-year-old granddaughter during an exorcism early Saturday died after struggling with police officers who went into the home to investigate, Phoenix police said.

Police reportedly found Ronald Marquez, of Phoenix, shirtless and choking his granddaughter as her 19-year-old mother, naked and bloody, looked on. The bloodied girl was gasping and screaming as her mother chanted and held a religious picture of some kind, police said.

"It's very bizarre, (a) very unusual and pretty horrific situation this young child was involved in," said Sgt. Joel Tranter, a Phoenix police spokesman. The man held the girl in a headlock with one arm as he was squeezing her torso with his other arm, causing her to gasp and scream, police said.

Investigators later learned the man was trying to "squeeze the demons out of the young girl," Tranter said. One officer made his way into the room, confronted Marquez and touched him with a Taser, which apparently had no effect. » Full article here

No time for a pet? You can rent one.

No time for a pet? Then rent one. A California company has begun offering FlexPetz, a new service for dog-lovers who just don't have the time to care for a pet, or the space.

The "shared dog" service is available in Los Angeles and San Diego. Hanging out with man's best friend has a price. The annual fee runs about $100 a year. FlexPetz customers then make a monthly payment of about $50. A per-visit charge runs about $40.

The FlexPetz founder said only dogs with social temperaments are picked for the program. The current 10-dog crew includes Afghan hounds, Labrador retrievers and Boston terriers. » Article here

Dude vandalizes car with bologna?

Suburban Chicago police are searching for suspects who left a meaty message on a car recently. Police say someone used strips of bologna to spell out a profanity on the car's hood.

And in Geneva, vandals used sod to leave their rude message. Police say someone scratched an expletive into the turf of the fourth green at the Eagle Brook Country Club. Officials say they have reason to believe the suspect was intoxicated at the time of the incident. » Article here

This cat can predict when people are going to die.

Dogs can sometimes predict an epileptic owner's seizure or sniff at an owner's mole, signaling a possible cancer. Now, it appears a cat can predict the deaths of patients in a nursing home.

When Oscar curls up on a patient's bed and stays there, the staff knows it's time to call the family. It usually means the patient has less than four hours to live.

The feline's accuracy has been observed in 25 cases at Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. "He doesn't make too many mistakes. He seems to understand when patients are about to die," Dr. David Dosa said in an interview. He describes the phenomenon in a poignant essay in Thursday's issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. » Read the full article here
