This news isn't about COVID and I won't be so crass as to post it in the Good News thread:

O.J. Simpson, former football star acquitted of murder, dies at 76
O.J. Simpson, the former football great who was accused of and ultimately acquitted of the brutal 1994 slayings of his ex-wife and her friend, has died, according to his family. He was 76.

"On April 10th, our father, Orenthal James Simpson, succumbed to his battle with cancer. He was surrounded by his children and grandchildren. During this time of transition, his family asks that you please respect their wishes for privacy and grace," a statement from his family said.

In May 2023, Simpson posted a video on X, then known as Twitter, revealing that he had recently "caught cancer" and "had to do the whole chemo thing." He added, "It looks like I beat it." Simpson didn't specify the nature of the cancer.

Then in February 2024, a Las Vegas television station reported that Simpson, then 76, was again undergoing treatment for an unspecified cancer. Simpson himself posted a video on X that day, denying rumors that he was in hospice care, though he did not otherwise confirm or deny reports that he was ill. Two days later in another video update on X, Simpson thanked those people he said had reached out to him, adding "My health is good. I mean, obviously I'm dealing with some issues but I think I'm just about over it."

There's more at the link, and some ABC news video.

Most of the links when I searched this story were to places like the Enquirer and NY Post. Such trash news sources that I'm sure they have more flagrant details.

Musician creates GoFundMe page for ‘Banjo Boy’ from ‘Deliverance’ movie
Billy Redden, who played the teen character in the “Dueling Banjos” scene, is now retired in Rabun Gap with mounting medical bills.

A California bluegrass musician and fan of “Banjo Boy” Billy Redden from the Oscar-nominated movie “Deliverance” recently started a GoFundMe page to help the Georgia man, who is now 67 and suffering from medical problems.

Since March 4, the page has raised more than $16,000 from 500-plus donors.

At age 15, Redden was featured in the memorable “Dueling Banjos” scene in “Deliverance,” an action thriller in which four Atlanta men embark on what would become a deadly canoeing expedition in the north Georgia mountains.

Early in the film, the men stop at a gas station and spy Redden’s character Lonnie, who is on a nearby porch possessing a stony face, pale, flat eyes and a banjo. Bobby (Ned Beatty) looks at Lonnie and disparagingly says: “Talk about genetic deficiencies — isn’t that pitiful?”

But when Drew Ballinger, played by newcomer Ronny Cox, whips out a guitar and strums a chord, Redden quickly responds with a matching chord. They then joyfully trades riffs for several minutes. “You play a mean banjo!” Drew says with glee, then goes to shake Lonnie’s hand. But Lonnie doesn’t respond in kind, looking away instead.

Interesting, I follow Ronnie Cox on Facebook and he noticed a photo from filming the movie turning up in his feed, but didn't know why. I shared this article over there - perhaps he'll contribute.

When the ship crew realized they were in trouble the local pilot (who was on board the ship) immediately sent out a "Mayday" message to the bridge folks about being near the bridge, and the state police reacted literally instantly - within seconds they had the traffic onto the bridge stopped, and 30 seconds after the last vehicle was off of the decking the tanker hit the bridge.

The workers on the bridge were repairing potholes on the bridge; eight went into the water, two were rescued. The others are now presumed dead and the work shifted to recovery.

They're going to need some really big bollards to keep ships from hitting whatever replaces this bridge. And will the answer be to drive around or will a ferry system be put in place? Chances are there are still docks from years ago. After the World Trade Center came down in New York and the subways on that end of town were closed for a bit, didn't they run ferries from Brooklyn and New Jersey? That's a long time ago and I may be mis-remembering, but in older cities the artifacts of past transport sticks around for a while. Being able to ride across and get rapid transit on the other side would help avoid a lot of commuter traffic hitting the other bridges.

I'm curious how this will unfold, and expect Biden and Buttigieg to make a speech about it soon.

The clips shown on the Beeb (and Sky News) didn't look like time-lapse to me. I haven't seen the earlier bits of the footage, but apparently it suggests there was a ship-wide power failure. I did see a burst of diesel-like smoke a few seconds before the impact, and a bigger one immediately after.

Comments here include that the bridge was built in the 1970s, but that the building regs about using disaster-deflecting concrete posts ("dolphins") weren't put in place until the 1980s, after a similar prang elsewhere.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the Colorado "star analyst" Missy Woods (in DNA analysis in criminal cases) has altered data.

The DNA Scandal That Threatens Thousands of Criminal Cases
Colorado investigators say star analyst Yvonne ‘Missy’ Woods altered data. Now people she helped send to prison want their convictions re-examined.

I'm pretty sure people will hit a paywall, but putting her name and state into a search engine will bring up more stories. Here's the introduction:
For nearly three decades, Yvonne “Missy” Woods was Colorado’s star forensic scientist, relied on by police and prosecutors to test DNA evidence in the state’s most baffling crimes.

Her work was considered the gold standard by colleagues and helped put away infamous murderers, including the “Colorado Hammer Killer.”

Then, in November, Woods abruptly resigned. The same day, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation said it had discovered anomalies in her work during an internal review and was launching a criminal probe.

The unfolding scandal—potentially one of the largest in the history of forensic DNA testing, according to experts—is throwing Colorado’s criminal justice system into chaos. The state said it would need to review and retest approximately 3,000 DNA samples that Woods handled. Public defenders estimate thousands of cases could be affected.

Prosecutors are bracing for numerous legal challenges from people charged or convicted based on Woods’s findings. State lawmakers recently allocated nearly $7.5 million for possible retrials and case reviews, along with the retesting.

At the center of the storm is a mystery: Was Woods just sloppy, or has she been purposefully cutting corners for decades to put people behind bars?

His piano has been dropped by helicopter on the Gordon Dam wall and has hung from a crane on Hobart's waterfront.

An estimated 80% of the world’s population have a caffeinated product daily. In Peru or Asian and African countries, there are different stimulants that are more or less legal.

Both the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) define a safe caffeine intake as up to 400 mg per day, 200 mg per single dose, or 1.4 mg per pound (3 mg per kg) of body weight.

Due to its stimulating effects, caffeine has been linked to health benefits like enhanced alertness, improved athletic performance, elevated mood, and increased metabolism. I am clearly over caffeinated by these standards. Evidenced by my posting activity and eclectic interests I should probably have half the coffee I make.

Coffee and tea both contain caffeine. A standard 8-ounce cup of coffee contains about 95 milligrams of caffeine, while a cup of black tea has about 50 milligrams, and green tea has about 30 milligrams. That means coffee has twice as much caffeine as the same amount of black tea, and over three times the amount of caffeine as green tea.

“While tea also contains caffeine and has been shown to improve cognitive function and alertness, the addition of theanine, an amino acid, gives tea the added benefit of reducing stress”. If you’re about to embark on a major project or need a laser level of focus, black or green tea may be your ideal go-to beverage with no caffeine trembles and reduced stress might help you make it to the project finish line.
