Three teens have been arrested for the crime; one suspect says they simply had nothing better to do, the police report.<p>Christopher Lane, 22, was reportedly shot in the back as he jogged down a road in Duncan, Okla., in the middle of the afternoon last Friday. He was a victim of random violence, police say, after three teens — ages 15, 16 and 17 — saw him pass a house they were in.

Dozens of people died and torrents washed away houses and cars, forcing thousands from their homes.<p>Some of those floodwaters simply ran back into the ocean, so they didn't affect sea level. But a lot of that water was trapped on the Australian land mass. Tue, 20 Aug 2013 06:57:00 +0000 Richard Harris 48557 at http://kunc.org How Extreme Australian Rains Made Global Sea Levels Drop
