An El Paso school district has suspended its superintendent after San Antonio police reported he was inebriated at a Whataburger when he head-butted another superintendent. The school board for the Ysleta Independent School District on Tuesday suspended Superintendent Xavier De La Torre for three days without pay for not promptly telling the board about the June altercation. De La Torre was in San Antonio with other educators for training provided by the Texas Association of School Boards. A police report said he appeared to be intoxicated and head-butted the superintendent for the Socorro Independent School District, which covers much of El Paso County. De La Torre, who earns nearly $314,000, in a statement last week denied he was the aggressor and said he didn't head-butt anyone. (

Lakes Can Explode. When we think of lakes, we usually think of tranquility and summers relaxing by them—not lethal explosions. But Africa has experienced just that sort of thing over the years, when bursts of volcanic gases rise to the surface, leaving destruction in their wake. For example, in August 1986, gases below Lake Nyos in Cameroon, which sits above the 950-mile-long chain of volcanoes known as Cameroon Volcanic Line, became concentrated and when it came to the surface, “an explosive degassing of 1.6 million tons of carbon-dioxide occurred, forming a 160 feet high cloud,” according to Forbes. It killed 1,700 people as a result.

A Florida man was arrested this week after pointing a gun at two deliverymen when they arrived late with his furniture — threatening that he has “shot people for less.” The suspect, 55-year-old Mitchell Helton of Manatee County, immediately began complaining when the deliverymen showed up late with the furniture he ordered. The men asked if he still wanted the furniture and Helton allegedly told them to “do whatever you want.” He then allegedly grabbed his gun and pointed it at both of the men as he walked out of his house. “You know, I’ve shot people for less,” he allegedly said. The deliverymen called the police after the threat, and Helton was arrested soon after. According to the report, he was charged with two counts of aggravated assault and is being held on $5,000 bond.
