Accused Boston Marathon Bomber Pleads Not Guilty- Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the man accused of orchestrating the Boston Marathon bombings, appeared in a hearing yesterday and pled not guilty to the 30 charges against him. It was his first federal court appearance and was said to be ‘all smiles’ as he said “not guilty” as the charges were read.

Supporters of the Tsarnaev brothers including their mother believe that the two are innocent and have somehow been framed.
Why the Ocean is So Chilly This Summers- It’s mid-July and if you’ve been to the Jersey Shore already this summer you may have been surprised by the 50 degree water (which has barely reached a high of 62 in the past couple of weeks). According to meteorologists the cooler water temperature has to do with the wind. Apparently the SW winds are taking the warmer water that is usually at the surface and pushing it further out to sea, bringing the colder water from down below to the surface. The wind directions are supposed to change by Friday but don’t expect a drastic change in water temperature by that time.

Justin Bieber Pees Into Restaurant Mop Bucket, Curses Off Bill Clinton- From his erratic driving to his drug-laced tour bus, Justin Beiber has not been the teeny-bopper parents want their pre-teens looking up to. Well, a new video confirms Justin’s new bad-boy persona. Beiber was video taped peeing into a mop bucket in the back of a NYC restaurant. Then for some unknown reason Beiber picked up a bottle of cleaning solution and sprayed a picture of Bill Clinton while yelling “F*** Bill Clinton”. Justin has tried to justify his recent behavior by saying, “In life u will make mistakes and people will try and tear u down…but u gotta stay positive. Stay strong..and learn to be better…and…always live to serve others and The Lord. #growingeveryday.” He has also apologized to Bill Clinton and it seems he had a conversation with him. The bigger question is why the person who recorded it was part of his entourage. Keep your circle tight young Biebs!

The audio is horrible, but hey it was posted on Instagram.
