While nobody was injured, and the people were only stuck up on the ride for around 15 minutes, they were eventually rescued when the car was manually brought down by Six Flags staff.

"I love it! I'm not crazy. I don't have any crazy fitness regimes but I do love to work out. It increases the serotonin, so I find I'm a happier person when I work out."
"We meet him at a low point in his life," says supervising producer James Tucker, who created one of the most beloved versions of the character, the jovial warrior on Batman: The Brave and the Bold. "He's a little bit lost. His father has died and he's always been an outsider, so the one person who had his back is now gone. When that Atlanteans instigate incidents to escalate a war with the surface world, he doesn't yet know who he is. As he discovers his true history he's going to have a lot of choices to make. It's definitely about him finding his own path."

This is great news to comic publishers like Marvel and DC Comics. Unfortunately, it's also good news to hackers and scammers too. Cybercriminals know that search engines (like Google, Yahoo! and Bing) can also be used for criminal means. Therefore, they use popular search terms to draw victims in like celebrity gossip, holidays, viral hits, and... you guessed it... superheroes.
McAfee just released a study on the Most Toxic Superheroes that analyzed what superhero search led to the most risky websites using McAfee® SiteAdvisor® site ratings. And the Man of Steel topped the list. The study determined that searching "Superman," "Superman and free torrent download," "Superman and watch," "Superman and free app," and "Superman and online," yields a 16.5% chance of landing on a website that has tested positive for online threats, such as spyware, adware, spam, phishing, viruses and other malware.

BETHANY HAMILTON, ALANA BLANCHARD, COURTNEY CONLOGUE, COCO HO AND MALIA MANUEL HEADLINE THE FIELD OF TOP PROS REGISTERED IN THE LARGEST FEMALE SURFING EVENT IN THE WORLD
ASA Entertainment announced today that the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) 6-Star Paul Mitchell Supergirl Pro will take place for the seventh consecutive year at the Oceanside Pier in Oceanside, Calif. from August 8-10, 2014. Admission to the event is free.
The Paul Mitchell Supergirl Pro will serve as the lone women's ASP qualifying event scheduled in the United States for the 2014 season and plays a critical role for surfers looking to solidify their position on the 2015 ASP Women's World Championship Tour (WCT).
"With the Paul Mitchell Supergirl Pro currently representing the only women's qualifying event in the U.S., this contest is extremely important in the girls' qualification process for next year's WCT," Jessi Miley-Dyer, ASP Women's Tour Manager said. "Since this event falls towards the end of the women's qualifying season, results at the Paul Mitchell Supergirl Pro could be make-or-break for girls on the qualifying bubble."
In addition to being the only Women's Star event in the U.S., the Paul Mitchell Supergirl Pro will also be the largest female contest in the world with One Hundred Four (104) of the planet's top female pros expected to compete. Some of the world-class surfers registered to participate include Alana Blanchard (Kauai, HI), Malia Manuel (Kauai, HI), Coco Ho (Oahu, HI), Courtney Conlogue (Santa Ana, CA), Laura Enever (Sydney, Australia), Bianca Buitendag (Johannesburg, South Africa), Dmity Stoyle (Queensland, Australia), Alessa Quizon (Honolulu, HI), Johanne Defay (Le Puy-en-Velay, France), Nikki Van Dijk (Victoria, Australia), Sage Erickson (Malibu, CA), Paige Hareb (New Plymouth, NZ), Pauline Ado (Bayonne, France), Sofia Mulanovich (Lima, Peru) and Bethany Hamilton (Lihue, HI).
"I can't begin to explain how excited all of the girls are about this event," said Malia Manuel, the 5th ranked surfer in the world and the Supergirl Pro defending champion. "It's so amazing to have a contest like this in the US that focuses entirely on women's surfing. I've been to the event every year, but being the defending champion makes it even more special in 2014."
In addition to the best surfing talent in the world, the Supergirl Pro features an action-packed festival village that features live bands, comedy, art, yoga, fitness, dance, female surf films, seminars, autographs from the pros, free hair styling by Paul Mitchell and many other female-inspired activities.
"We are really pleased about the expansion of the Supergirl Pro in 2014 and the record-breaking field of women participating," said Rick Bratman, CEO of ASA Entertainment, the event's management company and one of the leading producers of action sports event and television programming in the US. "We are proud to have supported women's surfing for eight years and to have provided a platform for important causes around sustainability and breast cancer awareness."
"Paul Mitchell is thrilled to be involved with such an amazing group of women, and we are proud to have the largest field of talent in women's surfing competing at our event," said Julie Solwold, Vice President of Global Sports and Events at John Paul Mitchell Systems. "These girls have style, grace, beauty and athleticism that align perfectly with our brand, and we are excited to help them gain much-deserved exposure for their sport."
The Paul Mitchell Supergirl Pro is the first event of the 2014 Supergirl Jam Series, the action sports industry's largest all-female competition and lifestyle series, featuring more than 175 female pros in surfing, skateboarding and snowboarding.
"The Supergirl Pro serves as a platform for the embodiment of female strength and leadership through action sports and a celebration of the iconic Supergirl S-Shield," said Karen McTier, Executive Vice President of Domestic Licensing and Worldwide Marketing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. "We are thrilled to be hosting the series for the 8th year, and we applaud the athletes as they inspire young women everywhere with their skill, intelligence, independence and overall passion."
The event will run on Friday, August 8 and Saturday, August 9, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday, August 10, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
I recently acquired an even higher resolution version of the photo, and (with the help of a fellow Australian fan named Alex) discovered that the new Superman costume contains a fair amount of Kryptonian writing which has been included in the tweaked design.
The most obvious Kryptonian writing inclusion is the S-like character featured on the new rectangular "belt buckle". We also noted that there appears to be Kryptonian script throughout the gold "belt" elements around the waist.
But there are also two (maybe three) other areas on the costume where Kryptonian writing can be found, and they're a little less obvious.
The larger gaps on the wrist gauntlets sees Kryptonian writing inscribed between the first and second lines closest to the wrist. It's subtle, but it's there. You can't see it in the photo released, but I wouldn't be surprised if the extra line at the top of the boots is also an area where more Kryptonian writing might be found.
Now, the other interesting inclusion of Kryptonian writing is a little harder to notice, although many immediately saw the line that it's written on. You see the "swish" line through the middle of the "S" shield on his chest? While many thought it was purely to try and emulate the logo seen throughout "Man of Steel" (and especially in the poster design), there's actually Kryptonian writing above and below that line. At first it simply appears to be a break up of the mesh pattern that permeates the entire costume. But upon closer examination, you can see that it is indeed Kryptonian lettering.
I contacted Dr. Christine Schreyer, the Linguistic Anthropologist who co-created the Kryptonian language for "Man of Steel," to see if she could shed any further light on what the Kryptonian writing might say. She replied, "I would say that this does appear to be Kryptonian writing, but beyond that I'm afraid I can't say more."
Beyond that, I guess we'll have to wait and see if production designer, Patrick Tatopoulous, graphic designer Kirsten Franson, or costume designer Michael Wilkinson can shed any light on what the Kryptonian text says and why they've incorporated it into the costume this time around.

Tony Bedard: The biggest surprise for me about the "Red Daughter of Krypton" storyline has been that Kara has had more fun and upbeat moments as a Red Lantern than as a misfit alien on planet Earth! A lot of the credit goes to Charles Soule's truly entertaining run on "Red Lanterns." He's tapped that book's potential in a way I never anticipated, making it a thoroughly fun read. And having Kara as part of that group gave us a chance to see her through fresh eyes. More important for her, she went from being an outcast to belonging on a tight-knit team, and I think it did her some good. But, long term? I don't think Kara should be defined by Rage. She's better than that.
