Just the Facts?: Monster Tracks in NH -- Lloyd Pye Diagnosed With Cancer -- Did Vikings Transport Native American to Europe?
Monster Tracks in New Hampshire
Two kids enjoying some off-road action hit the brakes last weekend when they stumbled onto a trail of three-toed footprints in the mud. They aren’t certain of what left them, but they aren’t ruling out a “monster”.
Click for video - 'Possible monster foot prints I found with gf REAL' or cut & paste http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQA6bRjefYU&feature=youtu.be
Description w/ video: guys this is not faked or anything we were four Wheeling to the quarry ( were me and gf swim) and we stumbled across these foot prints are these a possible monster ? Comment what you think.

Vikings Possibly Carried Native American to Europe
- DNA analysis reveals that four families in Iceland possess genes typically found in Native Americans or East Asians.
- Genealogical evidence revealed that these families shared a distant ancestor from the same region.
- The Vikings may have brought back a Native American woman with them after they arrived in the New World.
The first Native American to arrive in Europe may have been a woman brought to Iceland by the Vikings more than 1,000 years ago, a study by Spanish and Icelandic researchers suggests.
The findings boost widely-accepted theories, based on Icelandic medieval texts and a reputed Viking settlement in Newfoundland in Canada, that the Vikings reached the American continent several centuries before Christopher Columbus traveled to the "New World."
Spain's CSIC scientific research institute said genetic analysis of around 80 people from a total of four families in Iceland showed they possess a type of DNA normally only found in Native Americans or East Asians.
"It was thought at first that (the DNA) came from recently established Asian families in Iceland," CSIC researcher Carles Lalueza-Fox was quoted as saying in a statement by the institute. "But when family genealogy was studied, it was discovered that the four families were descended from ancestors who lived between 1710 and 1740 from the same region of southern Iceland."
The lineage found, named C1e, is also mitochondrial, which means that the genes were introduced into Iceland by a woman.
"As the island was virtually isolated from the 10th century, the most likely hypothesis is that these genes corresponded to an Amerindian woman who was brought from America by the Vikings around the year 1000," said Lalueza-Fox.
The researchers used data from the Rejkjavik-based genomics company deCODE Genetics.
He said the research team hopes to find more instances of the same Native American DNA in Iceland's population, starting in the same region in the south of the country near the massive Vatnajokull glacier.
The report, by scientists from the CSIC and the University of Iceland, was also published in the latest edition of the American Journal of Physical Anthropology.
The journal said 75 to 80 percent of contemporary Icelanders can trace their lineage to Scandinavia and the rest to Scotland and Ireland.
But the C1e lineage is "one of a handful that was involved in the settlement of the Americas around 14,000 years ago.
"Contrary to an initial assumption that this lineage was a recent arrival (in Iceland), preliminary genealogical analyses revealed that the C1 lineage was present in the Icelandic mitochondrial DNA pool at least 300 years ago" said the journal. "This raised the intriguing possibility that the Icelandic C1 lineage could be traced to Viking voyages to the Americas that commenced in the 10th century." - Discovery
Lloyd Pye diagnosed with cancer
I have just received some shocking news about my friend and colleague Lloyd Pye. He has been diagnosed with aggressive B-cell lymphoma cancer. He now must fight for his life and desperately needs enough donations to pay for treatment at an alternative center with an outstanding record of turning lymphoma cancer into a chronic illness rather than a fatal disease.
Please use the donate button at the top of the Lloyd's home page if you can help! Thank you! www.LloydPye.com

Winnipeg businessman attacks strip joint with chainsaw
A Winnipeg businessman faces charges in what police describe as a "property-related" dispute with a business partner where it's alleged a chainsaw was used to carve up the roof of a popular city strip club.
Raymond James Rybachuk, 42, was arrested on the grounds of the Chalet Hotel on Archibald Street Thursday. The hotel is home to Teasers Burlesque Palace.
He's facing several charges, including two counts of mischief over $5,000 and uttering threats to cause damage to the club. He's currently in custody at the Winnipeg Remand Centre.
Rybachuk is the co-owner of the building housing Teasers and the Chalet Hotel, in which the female business partner runs the club, police said.
Court documents show the allegations Rybachuk faces date back to March 2012 when he allegedly uttered threats to damage the business and broke a door. The documents also show police believe he damaged some toilets there on Tuesday — a couple of days after he allegedly uttered another threat to cause damage.
Officers were called to the club mid-day Thursday after Rybachuk arrived and a chain saw was allegedly used on the roof, causing more than $5,000 damage.
He had employees with him who assisted, police said, but they aren't facing any charges.
Rybachuk's case was remanded to Monday. He has yet to apply for bail and is presumed innocent of the allegations. "It looks like this has been kind of ongoing," a police source said. "There've been some issues in the past. What the cause is, I don't know."
Rybachuk was last in the news in mid-June in connection with a separate business venture as his role of co-owner of the recently reopened Royal Albert Arms Hotel.
Hotel co-owner and business partner Daren Jorgenson told The Sun "disagreements" with Rybachuk was a factor causing him to turn in the hotel's liquor licence and cancel shows.
The Albert's Facebook page has detailed the firing of bikini waitresses, an entire working lunch shift while on duty, and one direct statement telling a staff member he was fired for complaining.
Jorgenson, who bought the property in 2007, called in his demand mortgage — forcing the partnership to break up — and ceased operations at the bar to expedite the sale.
The venue re-opened its doors in April 2013 after being closed for nearly two years due to a water main break and a dispute with the city over who would pay for repairs. - Winnipeg Sun
