NBC Hypes Gun-Toting Doctor in Airport; Barely Mentioned Armed Doctor Who Stopped Shooter

On Tuesday's NBC Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie touted "such a bizarre story" of a doctor legally carrying a gun into a Phoenix airport. In the two-minute report that followed, correspondent Tamron Hall explained that Dr. Peter Steinmetz, a neurological researcher, "was arrested after he pointed  the gun at a woman and her young daughter." Hall declared: "Police think he may have just wanted to make a statement about the right to bear arms." [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]

Another armed doctor who recently made news was Dr. Lee Silverman, who heroically stopped a shooter at a Pennsylvania hospital on Thursday. Friday's Today offered a mere 33-second news brief on that story.

Hitchhiking can be a dangerous way to travel, but one robot is using it to go cross country. Appropriately named HitchBot, the talking droid is attempting to travel across Canada depending only on the kindness of strangers

Hitchbot was created by a group of Canadian researchers as an experiment to test whether robots can learn to trust humans. He began his journey in Halifax, Nova Scotia and the plan is for him to eventually reach Victoria, British Columbia. Like many Canadians, Hitchbot can only communicate in English and a little bit in French.

It’s the summer in many parts of the world — which means time for vacation. And there’s no better way to spend your downtime than curled up with a good book

We’ve been thinking about vacations in Mashable‘s social book club, MashableReads, as we read The Vacationers by Emma Straub. In the book, the Posts, a family from New York City, go on what they hope will be a relaxing summer getaway. However, not even the beautiful island setting of Mallorca, Spain, can prevent the Posts from focusing on their NYC struggles.

Inspired by the The Vacationers, we asked Mashable readers to show us the best locations to relax and read. Readers worldwide submitted photos of their favorite places via Instagram and Twitter; they featured destinations ranging from sunny beaches and mountain tops to city parks Read more…

GNOME 3 released, ushers in an interesting amalgam of iOS and OS X

GNOME 3 desktop manager

GNOME 3, after more than two years of development, has been released into the wild. GNOME 3 is not merely the logical successor of GNOME 2: it is an entirely new project, started from scratch, to create a “completely new, modern desktop designed for today’s users and technologies.”

The best way to check out GNOME 3′s new features — and it has lots of new features — is to run a live version of openSUSE or Fedora, or simply head over to the GNOME 3 website and watch the (rather pretty) introductory videos. If you want a synopsis, though, here it is: GNOME 3 looks a lot like Mac OS X, with a healthy dollop of iOSesqueness for good measure, but yet it still somehow retains an underlying feel of Linux.

The overall aesthetic is very simple, very elegant, and despite being slightly out of fashion, there are plenty of rounded corners, too. The main addition, workflow-wise, is the addition of an app-launcher-cum-alt-tab screen, where you can launch apps, or flip through your open windows. For a complete list of the new features and changes, check the GNOME 3 release notes.

Despite GNOME 3 being officially launched, there aren’t actually any releases for existing, stable Linux distros — it’s the live CD/USB images, or Ubuntu users will have to wait for the launch of 11.04 for a GNOME 3 PPA, but it will break Unity in the process. Fedora users will have to wait for for the May 24 release of Fedora 15. Of course, if you’re feeling crazy, you can always build GNOME 3 from source.

GNOME 3 released, ushers in an interesting amalgam of iOS and OS X originally appeared on Download Squad on Thu, 07 Apr 2011 06:40:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.

Pro-Russian Ukrainian Woman Allegedly Wears Mascara from MH17 Victim

Ekaterina Parkhomenko was just an ordinary woman in east Ukraine until she took a few selfies with supposed mascara from the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 site in east Ukraine and posted the pictures on social media.

“Mascara from Amsterdam; to be precise, from the field,” she wrote. “Well you understand.”

The plane was shot down on July 17 in southeast Ukraine, killing 298 people. The scene was never secured, and pro-Russian forces rummaged through the victims’ possessions. Parkhomenko is from Torez, which is where the pro-Russians eventually transported the victims.

She claimed a friend took the mascara from the site and gave it to her. 

Even though she is from Ukraine, Parkhomenko identifies with Russia and the pro-Russians. 

Commentators and journalists in Ukraine and Russia criticized the pictures.

“It is lower than low to pick up mascara from the deceased,” said Russian blogger Bozhena Rynska.

“And this is a so-called civilian?” said Ukrainian writer Natalia Belous. “At least she is not running around with a machine gun. Can you imagine what this friend of hers, that ‘looter,’ is like?”

One person said, “It’s good that at least you are not finishing their food off;” Parkhomenko replied she could send this person any unfinished food or underwear from the victims the person would like.

Parkhomenko deleted her social media accounts after replying to the storm of criticism.
