News from Fox News:
The “stop, drop and roll” mantra came in handy for a Maine eighth-grader when her cellphone caught fire in her pocket at school.
Kennebunk middle school Principal Jeff Rodman tells The Portland Press Herald that the girl heard a popping sound Friday morning and smoke started billowing around her.
Boys were herded from the room so the 14-year-old girl could shed her flaming pants. She also did the “stop, drop and roll” move to help put out the fire. She was treated at a hospital.
Her mother had given her the Apple iPhone 5C two months earlier.

Zoom has been building innovative, great-sounding products for the past thirty years. But with the revolutionary H6their most versatile portable recorder everthe bar is raised further still. Four interchangeable input capsulesX/Y, MS, Shotgun, and Dual XLR/TRS Combomake the H6 the ultimate chameleon of the audio world, and its advanced preamps make it the best-sounding one too. Whatever your applicationlive recording, professional film/video work, or broadcast ENG (electronic news gathering), etc.the H6 can handle it with ease. Comes with X/Y and MS mic capsules. Shotgun and Dual XLR/TRS combo are optional.Audio connections: inputsThe H6 offers four main inputs (1-4), plus two additional inputs (L, R) that are derived from whichever capsule (X/Y, MS, Shotgun, or Dual XLR/TRS Combo) is plugged into the unit. The supplied XYH-6 X/Y capsule also provides a secondary input for connecting an external mic- or line-level signal via a stereo 1/8″ Mic/Line In mini phone jack. When a connection is made to that jack, signal from the X/Y microphones is muted.All four main H6 inputs (inputs 1-4) are combo connectors that can accept either XLR or 1/4″ balanced or unbalanced phone cables. They can handle both mic and line-level signals, which means that you can connect either external microphones or line-level devices like mixers, portable music players, electronic keyboards, or electric guitars or basses with active electronics (passive electric guitars or basses can also be connected with the use of a mixer or effects device). Internal switching contacts automatically detect the circuit of choice.Audio connections: outputsThe H6 Line Out is an unbalanced stereo 1/8″ phone jack, located on the bottom of the H6, beneath the LCD display. It carries the analog stereo output signal, as determined by the H6′s internal mixer. The H6 USB port, located on the side panel to the right of the LCD display, provides a digital output of either a stereo mix or the six individual input signals, depending upon the setting of the “Audio Interface” function in the USB menu.In addition, the H6 provides a headphone output with a dedicated volume control, located on the side panel to the left of the LCD display. Connect your headphones to the stereo 1/8″ mini phone jack for private monitoring of the stereo output signal. The H6 even has a built-in speaker, located on the underside of the unit, for fast monophonic monitoring of the recorded signal without the need to make any connections whatsoever. This speaker is automatically disconnected when connection is made to either the Line Out or Headphone output.Interchangeable input capsules that can be swapped out as easily as the lens of a camera6-track simultaneous recordingFour mic/line inputs with XLR/TRS combo connectorsGain controls (real knobs!) and -20dB pads for each inputPhantom power for all main inputs: +12/+24/+48VLarge full-color LCD display, angled so it’s easy to read in all environmentsRecords directly to SD, SDHC and

At trial of woman accused of murder in Texas day care fire, mothers testify …
News from Washington Post:
HOUSTON — During often tearful testimony, the mothers of four children who died in a 2011 home day care fire in Houston recounted for jurors on Wednesday the despair and grief they felt in the wake of the deadly blaze.
The parents testified during the first day of the felony murder trial of former day care owner Jessica Tata. She is facing up to life in prison if convicted.
Prosecutors say Tata, 24, put the children in harm’s way by leaving them alone and going shopping. While she was at a nearby Target, a fire broke out in the kitchen when oil in a frying pan on a stovetop burner ignited. Three children were also seriously injured in the February 2011 blaze.
Tata’s attorneys say she didn’t intend to hurt the children.
“It’s heartbreaking. She’s a baby. She didn’t know,” said Kenya Stradford, whose 20-month-old daughter Kendyll died in the blaze.
The mothers told jurors they had trusted Tata, believing their children were safe with her.
Keshia Brown, whose 16-month-old son Elias Castillo died in the fire, testified she was reassured because of the day care’s Christian learning environment.
“She seemed like a nice person, knew what she was doing,” said Brown, 21.
Tata was indicted on nine charges, including four counts of felony murder. She is being tried on one of the murder counts, for Elias’ death.</…………… continues on Washington Post

News from Patch.com:
To recognize National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin is holding a cell phone recycling drive to benefit victims of domestic violence and the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence (RICADV).
The drive also disposes of old cell phones in an environmentally safe way.

Instead of being discarded, an old phone can be refurbished and put to good use against domestic abuse through a cell phone recycling program. Cell phones are then reprogrammed and used as 911 Emergency phones for individuals in the community at risk of domestic violence. This communication may provide a critical link between law enforcement and a victi…………… continues on Patch.com
