Las Vegas police said a man tried to skip out on a $4,000 restaurant bill then made a bomb threat at the Bellagio. According to the arrest report for Gregg Cohen, officers were called to the Las Vegas Strip property about 3:30 p.m. on November 12th When officers arrived, casino security told them Cohen had been eating and drinking in Spago, a restaurant in the casino, and had a bill of $4,312.75. He reportedly got up and left, saying he was using the restroom. According to the restaurant's manager, Cohen had ordered seafood and a bottle of Dom Perignon, then socialized with women nearby and bought them champagne. The manager then said he saw Cohen at a table game. Cohen was asked to return to the restaurant to pay the bill. The report says Cohen then stated he had $10,000 to pay, but then emptied his pockets and had no money. He was then taken into security custody. While waiting for police to arrive, security said Cohen said, "I bet if there was a bomb, they'd get here really fast." When asked directly if he placed a bomb in the casino, Cohen reportedly said, "There is a bomb," then repeated the word "bomb" multiple times. Court records show Cohen is charged with communicating a bomb threat, theft, and defrauding a proprietor. He's expected back in court on December 1st. (https://bit.ly/3kY7TGq)

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by WeirdGiftOfTheDay.com
A stolen SUV careened through a Durham neighborhood over the weekend before taking out the porch of a home and turning a traffic sign into a spear that impaled itself in a second-floor bedroom. John Bray and his wife, Marissa Minnick, were awakened at about 3:30 a.m. Saturday by the crash, which they said sounded different from those they usually hear in their neighborhood. The SUV, which police told the couple had been stolen a half-hour earlier from a downtown Durham apartment complex, snapped a tree in half, took out part of their fence, demolished some raised garden beds and sideswiped their car. It hit the porch with such velocity that it knocked out a brick support column and left a crack in the home's foundation on the back side of the house. As they surveyed the damage, Bray and Minnick noticed a traffic sign hanging from the second story of their home. It was only when they went back inside that they realized how close the sign came to injuring them as they slept. The sign's metal post crashed through the siding into a bathroom and then through an interior wall into their bedroom, ending up near their bed. (https://bit.ly/31WrhwS)

California couple was sentenced to prison for illegally obtaining
more than $20 million in COVID-19 relief funds — but authorities
need to catch them first. Richard Ayvazyan, 43, was sentenced to 17
years behind bars and his wife, 37-year-old Marietta Terabelian,
received a six-year sentence in federal prison on Monday for
conspiracy, bank fraud and money laundering, according to the
Department of Justice. The two are on the run from authorities and
were sentenced in absentia. Federal officials said they cut off their
tracking bracelets on Aug. 29th. The judge also sentenced Ayvazyan’s
brother, Artur, 41, to five years in prison. On June 25, a federal
jury found Richard Ayvazyan, Artur Ayvazyan and Terabelian guilty of
one count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud and wire fraud, 11
counts of wire fraud, eight counts of bank fraud and one count of
conspiracy to commit money laundering. Richard Ayvazyan and his
brother were also convicted of aggravated identity theft. The FBI is
offering a reward of up to $20,000 for information leading to the
arrest of Richard Ayvazyan and Terabelian.

THIS LIBRARY LETS YOU BORROW PEOPLE INSTEAD OF BOOKS
On a rainy spring morning in Muncie, Indiana, a White, middle-aged, conservative woman met a transgender woman for a date. It did not start well. The transgender woman was waiting at a table when the other woman showed up. She stood up and extended her hand. The other woman refused to take it. “I want you to know I’m a conservative Christian,” she said, still standing. The transgender woman replied, “I’m a liberal Christian. Let’s talk.” Their rendezvous was supposed to last about 30 minutes. But the conversation was so engrossing for both that it lasted an hour. It ended with the conservative woman rising from her seat to give the other woman a hug.
This improbable meeting came courtesy of the Human Library, a nonprofit learning platform that allows people to borrow people instead of books. But not just any people. Every “human book” from this library represents a group that faces prejudice or stigmas because of their lifestyle, ethnicity, beliefs, or disability. A human book can be an alcoholic, for example, or a Muslim, or a homeless person, or someone who was sexually abused.
The Human Library was created 21 years ago by Ronni Abergel, a Danish human rights activist and journalist who became interested in non-violence activism after a friend he describes as a “troubled youth” survived a stabbing in Copenhagen.
