If everybody understood some statistics they'd never gamble in a casino. Here's a couple of my favorites.... How many people need to be in a room until you have at least a 50-50 change that two will have the same birthday? The answer is 23....completely non-intuitive. And when a new paper in Florida published the top 6 numbers in the lottery a couple years after they start the lottery…

I'm curious what the "prior misconduct" is that could scare Denny enough to agree to fork over more than $3 million. Really does go to show that sleazebaggery in politics knows no bounds, party or otherwise.

Hmmm...I re-read his article after having done some research. He didn't say that global warming didn't cause ice retreat. He said ice retreat does not prove a global warming crisis. I happen to agree with that statement. Warming causes ice retreat (which he also said)...yes....ice retreat causes crisis...no... The data he shows is misleading...but that's NASA's fault for publishing…

Two improvised explosive devices found in Quincy

2 years, 1 month ago by Denise Donley

No one was injured in the IED incidents, but they were capable of causing harm

The Quincy Police Department is investigating two recent incidents involving improvised explosive devices.    

One of the IEDs was detonated prior to the incident in Boston Monday.   

No one was injured during either incident. Although both IEDs were small, they were capable of causing serious harm to anyone near to them at the time of their detonation. 

The first IED was found in the 1700 block of Jackson.  It was detonated sometime between 2:00 pm on Sunday, April 14th and 2:30 pm on Monday, April 15th.  This IED consisted of a CO2 cartridge and a number of BBs wrapped in newspaper and duct tape.  The only known damage was to a nearby residence.

The second IED was found in the 2000 block of Hampshire.  It was detonated just prior to 8:30 pm on Monday, April 15th.  This IED was what is commonly called a “soda bottle bomb” and did not appear to have any method for discharging shrapnel.

Residents are cautioned to stay away from any suspicious objects that have the potential to be a similar device and should immediately call 9-1-1.

If anyone has any information about the previously mentioned devices, please contact the Quincy Police Department (217-228-4470) or provide the information through Quincy Regional CrimeStoppers (217-228-4474).
