Woman orders wings, but gets thousands of dollars in box

A woman in San Jose, California, placed an order of wings for lunch and got thousands of dollars in cash instead.

KGO-TV reported that Selena Avalos, a manager at a cellphone store, ordered from a nearby Domino's and when her food arrived, there were not wings, but wads of cash inside the container.

The total was nearly $5,000.

"I was like, I can’t keep it. It’s a crazy amount of money," Avalos told KGO-TV. "It’s not like it’s $20 you find, you know? It’s almost $5,000."

"I'm a manager myself, so I do deposits," Avalos said. "So I assumed right away that it was their deposits."

Avalos said she immediately called the Domino's where she placed the order, but there was no answer.

"Wouldn't they be thinking, 'Where did that money go?'" Avalos said.

There was still no response three days later, so she reached out to KGO-TV for help, which contacted the Domino's corporate office and got Avalos in contact with the franchise owner.

As a reward, Domino's is offering Avalos free pizza for a year and her boss is giving her a week off of work -- with pay.

 

Have $200,000? You could fly to Mars

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk wants people to travel to Mars for as little as $200,000 a person.

>> Read more trending stories 

Musk told the International Astronautical Congress his plan at a meeting in Mexico Tuesday.

SpaceX has yet to ferry an astronaut to the International Space Station. SpaceX is also still isolating the issue with a helium system breach that led to the explosive loss of a Falcon 9 and its payload earlier this month. However, that didn't stop Musk from announcing an ambitious plan for the colonization of Mars.

“One path is that we stay on Earth forever, and there will be some extinction species. The other is to become an interplanetary species,” Musk said.

Musk has said he intends to beat NASA's goal of sending astronauts to Mars in the 2030s by a decade.

Musk’s announcement comes on the heels of another major announcement from Blue Origin about the “New Glen.” It’s a reusable rocket designed to launch satellites and people from Cape Canaveral.

“You've got NASA pursuing its goals. You have the commercial sector coming in, bringing speed and innovation and sustainability, and it's an exciting time and Florida is smack dab in the middle of it,” said Dale Ketcham, of Space Florida.

Under the SpaceX plan, the journey to Mars would begin at the Kennedy Space Center. Musk said key requirements to make all of this a reality will include reusability, refilling in orbit, propellant production on Mars and choosing the right propellant.

“Forty to 100 years to have a self-sustaining community on Mars,” Musk said.

Spider bites man on genitals for second time

A man in Australia is probably asking “Why me?” after he suffered another spider bite to his genitals just months after an earlier bite.

>> Read more trending stories 

BBC reported that the 21-year-old Australian man, identified only as Jordan, said he was using a portable toilet at a Sydney-area worksite when he felt a pain in his genitals. "I'm the most unlucky guy in the country at the moment," he said. "I was sitting on the toilet doing my business and just felt the sting that I felt the first time. I was like, 'I can't believe it's happened again.' I looked down and (I saw) a few little legs come from around the rim."

Mashable that a “highly venomous” redback spider bit Jordan in the same spot in April. He said this was the first time since the previous incident that he had used the portable toilet and he checked to make sure everything was clear.

"After the first time it happened, I didn't really want to use one again," he told the BBC. "Toilets got cleaned that day and I thought it was my opportunity to go use one. Had a look under both seats and then I sat down and did my business. Next thing you know, I'm bent over in pain.”

While Jordan said his co-workers were worried about him the first time, he told KIIS FM that they found it truly comical the second time. "(They were) just laughing at me, pretty much. They remembered me from the last time it happened," he said. "Everyone was laughing at me, calling me the unluckiest man in Australia."

According to the BBC, redback spiders are similar to black widow spiders, but have not caused any recorded deaths since the development of antivenin in 1956 and cause only  severe pain, sweating and nausea. Jordan said that he was released from the hospital and expects to return to work soon, but plans to avoid the portable toilet from now on.

"I think I'll be holding on for dear life, to be honest," he told BBC.

Kaepernick: 'Let's make America great again for the first time'

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has his own thoughts about the first presidential debate.

The outspoken football player spoke to CNN in a lockeroom interview about the heated debate between candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

>> Read more trending stories

“To me, it was embarrassing to watch. Both are proven liars and it almost seems like they’re trying to debate who’s less racist,” Kaepernick, who said he watched the first bit of the debate, told reporters on Tuesday.

“(Trump) always says, ‘Make America great again.’ Well, America has never been great for people of color and that’s something that needs to be addressed. Let’s make America great for the first time.”

The Associated Press has reported that Kaepernick has been taking a knee during the National Anthem at NFL games because he says the U.S. has oppressed people of color.

On the eve of Donald Trump’s Tuesday campaign rally Everett, Washington, the Republican presidential candidate spoke with KIRO Radio on a variety of topics, including Kaepernick’s national anthem protest. 

“I have followed it and I think it’s personally not a good thing, I think it’s a terrible thing. And maybe he should find a country that works better for him, let him try. It won’t happen,” Trump said.

Kaepernick called Trump's statement ignorant on Tuesday.

"Very ignorant statement that if you don't agree with what's going on here and that if you want justice and liberty and freedom for all that you should leave the country," Kaepernick said.

As for who Kaepernick will vote for in November, he says he’s not impressed with Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. 

Student arrested for wearing gorilla mask, flaunting noose at Black Lives Matter protest

An East Tennessee State University student has been charged with civil rights intimidation after heckling Black Lives Matter demonstrators at a peaceful silent protest on the school's campus.

>> Read more trending stories 

Tristan Rettke, an ETSU freshman, arrived at the protest at Borchuck Plaza at the school's campus barefoot in a gorilla mask and denim overalls.

Video footage showed him attempting to hand out "noose-wrapped bananas" from a burlap sack to the demonstrators. The sack had a marijuana leaf and a Confederate flag printed on it.

"He pulled out his burlap sack and then he had the rope and whatnot and then he started offering us bananas," said Jaylen Grimes, one of the demonstrators. "A lot of us didn't take it, but I just took (it) as a sign of peace offering and just to show him that just because he's being disrespectful towards me, I won't be disrespectful towards him."

As part of his counterprotest efforts, Rettke held up a sign that said "Lives Matter."

A video posted by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on Sep 28, 2016 at 7:54pm PDT

"He's just trying to get a reaction out of us that we're not going to give him. We're bigger than that," said one protestor who held a sign that read "Black Lives Matter (doesn't mean) all lives don't (matter).

Rettke, 18, was escorted from the protest by public safety officers and was later criminally charged by the Johson City Police Department. 

Rettke told police he went to the event "in (an) attempt to provoke the protesters."

ETSU President Brian Noland held a press conference Wednesday after seeing video of the incident. He discussed the event during a "community dialogue" on campus.

"I was offended, but I was also saddened," Noland said, calling Rettke's actions "incomprehensible, intolerable and impermissible."

Rettke has been placed on interim suspension from the college. 

In a statement, ETSU said Rettke's actions "go against the values" of the school and that the university is a place "where people come first and all are treated with dignity and respect." 

The university applauded the protestors for remaining clam despite Rettke's actions. 

"We are exceptionally proud of the students who were peacefully participating in the event and the manner in which they exercised restraint, thoughtfulness and strength in the face of inappropriate and offensive behavior," Noland said.

"Of course, it's hard to stay calm because they're doing it because they know they can get under your skin," Grimes said. "You've just got to have thicker skin and be the bigger person and just show that ignorance is not going to override your ability to be calm. Because being calm is a lot more difficult than reacting the way they want us to react, which is in a violent stereotypical black way. But we're not all like that."

"We hold no ill towards him," another student, Grant Madison said. "I added him on Facebook and want to speak with him about why he did it."

Juanita Broaddrick slams Chelsea Clinton over family's past

Donald Trump said he would have mentioned Bill Clinton's past infidelity at the first presidential debate, but one thing held him back.

"I'm very happy that I was able to hold back on the indiscretions with respect to Bill Clinton because I have a lot of respect for Chelsea Clinton," Trump told CNN after the debate.

Chelsea Clinton shrugged off the comment, telling Cosmopolitan, "I don't remember a time in my life when my parents and my family weren't being attacked, and so it just sort of seems to be in that tradition, unfortunately."

Trump's daughter Ivanka and Clinton are close friends. And Ivanka Trump still has "great respect" for Clinton, even though their parents are opponents.

One person who isn't holding back is Juanita Broaddrick. During Bill Clinton's second term as president, Broaddrick accused him of raping her in 1978 when he was Arkansas' attorney general. 

In a string of tweets addressed to Chelsea Clinton, Broaddrick said, "The truth is what has brought the attacks on your family," and "your father was, and probably still is, a sexual predator. Your mother has always lied and covered up for him."

Trump has often hinted at Bill Clinton's infidelity on the campaign trail. Trump tweeted that he would invite Gennifer Flowers, who allegedly had an affair with Clinton, to the first debate. But his campaign quickly put an end to that.

After a lackluster performance in that debate, Trump indicated that he won't hold back against Hillary Clinton going forward. Bill Clinton's past could certainly come into play.

Lawmaker to lifesaver: PA congressman helps save unconscious man

A Pennsylvania congressman may have helped save a man's life Wednesday afternoon on Capitol Hill.

>> Read more trending stories

On his way to a meeting, Rep. Tim Murphy, R-Pennsylvania, found a man unconscious and face down in a pool of blood in an elevator near Murphy's office.

Murphy acted quickly.

"Your muscle memory kicks in and you just know you have an emergency situation where you have to do something," Murphy said.

With the help of two of his staff members, the congressman was able to maintain CPR for about 15 minutes before an ambulance arrived.

"My mother was a nurse and made sure we had some training when we were younger," Murphy said. "As a Navy reservist medical, I have to be trained in this too."

Unlike Murphy, 70 percent of Americans feel helpless to act during cardiac emergencies because they don't know CPR or their training lapsed, according to the American Heart Association.

Murphy said he wants to help raise awareness on the importance of getting certified and expanding access to defibrillators.

"It doesn't take a lot of time out of your life to do it, but it makes a lifetime of difference for someone whose life is saved," Murphy said.

Murphy talked to the brother of the man he helped, who told Murphy he is in critical, but stable condition.

Volunteer firefighter hailed as hero after taking down elementary school shooter

A volunteer firefighter is being called a hero after he subdued an armed teenager who allegedly shot two students and a teacher at a South Carolina elementary school after investigators said he killed his father Wednesday afternoon.

The gunman, who has not been identified, was confronted by volunteer firefighter Jamie Brock after he rushed to Townville Elementary School following reports of a shooting.

Anderson County Sheriff John Skipper said Brock's intervention was pivotal to stopping the shooter.

"For that person to be willing to confront him, as far as why (the gunman) didn't get off more shots, I can only say at this point it's because he was confronted," he said Wednesday at a news conference. "He just took him down."

Townville volunteer fire Chief Billy McAdams said on Wednesday that he and Brock headed to the scene together after learning of the shooting around 1:45 p.m. Wednesday. They searched a black pickup truck after finding it crashed in the school's playground area, but found no threats.

The pair split up after they found teachers and staff calling for police at the back of the school with two injured 6-year-old students and an injured teacher. McAdams, who is a paramedic, stayed to help tend to the injured while Brock left to search the school's perimeter.

Brock found the shooter outside the school, McAdams said.

"Feeling it was for the safety of everyone on site, he immediately confronted and subdued that shooter," he said. "He was able to keep him on the ground until law enforcement could place him into custody."

Scott Stoller, director of emergency management services and special operations in Anderson County, said on Wednesday that Brock wants to remain "humble and kind of quiet" about his role in stopping the attack.

"With that said, I don't think there's anyone amongst us that doesn't believe that firefighter Brock is absolutely a hero to us and the firefighter community," he said.

Brock reiterated that mindset himself in a statement released through McAdams.

"My reaction to yesterday's event was no different than any other fire or law enforcement personnel who put their lives on the line to protect their communities every day," Brock said. "The true heroes of yesterday's senseless tragedy are the teachers that put their lives on the line to protect their students; the principal who -- through fears of her own, she did what was right to ensure the safety of her school. They deserve to be called the heroes, and I tip my hat to them."

He asked that the public pray for the victims of Wednesday's shooting, including 6-year-old Jacob Hall, who was last listed in critical condition.

In the aftermath of Wednesday's shooting, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) took to Twitter to thank Brock.

"We truly admire and appreciate your service," he wrote.

'Mrs. Doubtfire' house hits the market for $4.5 million

Real estate shoppers who are willing to shell out $4.45 million can now purchase a piece of entertainment history. 

>> Read more trending stories  

The San Francisco home featured in "Mrs. Doubtfire" hit the market with a multi-million dollar price tag this week.

The home, featured in the 1993 film starring Robin Williams, is located at 2640 Steiner Street. It was the site of a memorial for the Bay Area-based actor after he committed suicide in Aug. 2014, and it remains an "unofficial memorial," according to KGO-TV.

The three-story Victorian house has four bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms and sits overlooking the San Francisco Bay. It also features a marble bath tub and two-person shower, "garden/patio for al fresco enjoyment," an office/family room, foyer, a remodeled kitchen, space for a personal gym and a multi-car garage. According to E! News, "a piece of the garage actually lifts your car up into the air so you can park a second one under it."

"Because it's built on a wide corner lot, the public rooms are large-scale and the home has an open feel," said listing agent Steven Gothelf of Pacific Union Christie's International. 

The home, built in 1893, is approximately 3,300 square feet.

The current owner, Douglas Ousterhout, is a surgeon who has specialized in facial feminization surgery for transgender patients. He purchased the home in 1997 for $1.395 million, according to the San Francisco Gate. The Gate reported that Ousterhout is selling the home to retire in the wine country.
