Octave, Arizona

This 266-acre property in Arizona isn't much to see from above ground: cacti, dirt and a 2-bedroom manufactured home, two hours from anywhere. The reason for the property’s $5.9 million price tag is hidden underground: 25 miles of tunnels into what was once one of the richest sources of gold in the U.S.

The first people to discover the mine reported that the area was littered with gold nuggets the size of potatoes, according to a book on the Weaver Mining District.
In its heyday in the late 1800s, Octave was a bustling town with a school, a post office, a general store and a stagecoach line. The mines there were some of the most productive in the Old West before the area was abandoned by Asarco in 1940s.
The mine was featured in a short-lived cable show called “Ghost Mine,” where paranormal experts explored reports of ghosts in abandoned mines, including the spooky and notorious “Blue Devil of Octave.”




Daughter of Korean Air boss in 'nut rage'

Miss Heather Cho, who until the incident had been chief of in-flight service for Korean Air, caused flight KE086 to be delayed after she flew into a rage when she was served macadamia nuts in a bag.

Korean Air protocol is for the nuts to be served on a small dish. Head steward Park Chang-jin claims Miss Cho insulted him and forced him to kneel in apology.
The pilot brought the plane back to its gate at John F. Kennedy International Airport for the chief steward to be expelled. The flight's arrival at Incheon Airport, near Seoul, was delayed by 11 minutes as a result.

Miss Cho is the eldest daughter of the company chairman Cho Yang-ho. Two siblings are also executives at the airline. Mr Park claims she swore at him, jabbed him with a file case and pointed her finger at him as he kneeled.
The incident - first reported on Monday - has stoked both mirth and anger in South Korea, whose economy is dominated by powerful family-run conglomerates known as chaebol. Miss Cho has been stripped of all titles at the airline and its affiliates, and faces investigation by the government and prosecutors to determine whether she breached aviation laws.
Macadamias are now a household name in South Korea, and with curiosity about their taste piqued, sales are booming.

South Korea's largest online shopping retailer, Gmarket, owned by eBay, said macadamia nut sales jumped 20 times from one week to the next earlier this month.

John Dillinger


John Herbert Dillinger, Jr. (June 22, 1903 – July 22, 1934) was an American bank robber. He was charged with, but never convicted of, the murder of an East Chicago, Indiana police officer during a shoot-out. This was his only alleged homicide.

His gang robbed two dozen banks and four police stations. Dillinger escaped from jail twice and became a driving reason for the creation of the FBI.
Division of Investigations chief J. Edgar Hoover created a special task force headquartered in Chicago to locate Dillinger. On July 21 a madam from a brothel in Gary, Indiana, Ana Cumpănaş, also known as Anna Sage, contacted the police. She was a Romanian immigrant threatened with deportation and offered the federal agency information on Dillinger in exchange for their help in preventing her deportation.
Dillinger attended the film Manhattan Melodrama at the Biograph Theater in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood. Dillinger was with Polly Hamilton and Ana Cumpănaş. (Who was wearing a red dress to identify herself to agents.)


When the movie let out, Special Agent Melvin Purvis stood by the front door and signaled Dillinger's exit by lighting a cigar. Both he and the other agents reported that Dillinger turned his head and looked directly at the agent as he walked by, glanced across the street, then moved ahead of his female companions, reached into his pocket but failed to extract his gun, and ran into a nearby alley. Other accounts state Dillinger ignored a command to surrender, whipped out his gun, then headed for the alley. Agents already had the alley closed off, but Dillinger was determined to shoot it out.

Agents Cowley, Charles Winstead, and Herman "Ed" Hollis opened fire, firing five shots. Dillinger was hit from behind and he fell face first to the ground.

Dillinger was struck three times, with two bullets entering the chest, one nicking his heart, and the fatal shot, which entered the back of his neck and exited just under his right eye.
