The Internal Revenue Service has apologized for spending about $60,000 on a training video that parodied the television show, “Star Trek.” In a six-minute video that is attracting wide attention on the Internet, IRS workers portrayed characters from the popular television series and vowed “to boldly go where no governmental employee has gone before.” Congress was not amused, calling the video a waste of taxpayer money. The IRS has acknowledged it was a mistake for employees to make the video.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is learning that a bad situation can always get worse.  Video has emerged that shows him angry and out of breath, ranting about killing someone. "It's first-degree murder!" "No holds barred. " "He dies or I die. " "I'll rip his ... throat out. " The Toronto Star has the video (caution: there's a lot of profanity), possibly taken with a cellphone. The release of the footage by the news outlet spurred another apology from Ford -- who recently admitted to and apologized for having smoked crack cocaine .  He calls the video "extremely embarrassing" and says he was "extremely inebriated" at the time.

Astronomers have put the known universe in a box on your computer screen - the 120 million light-years of it within our grasp, at least. With a mellifluous French-accented narration, some light piano music and sweeping computer animation, the video could become a stoner classic. It also happens to be the most detailed modern cosmography of all that is visible in the sky - and a great deal of what is not. At nearly 18 minutes long (that's less than one side of Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon")

Tom Schaar landed a 1080. That's all that needs to be said -- and pretty much all the 12-year-old from Malibu could say immediately after becoming the first skateboarder ever to complete three full rotations in the air and land with his board still underneath him. "I did a 1080!" an out-of-breath and excited Schaar exclaimed into the camera that captured him completing the stunt on only his fifth attempt. Schaar recently became one of only a handful of skaters to land a 900. He set out to nail the 1080 on the MegaRamp at Woodward West in Tehachapi, which was customized by Schaar's sponsor, Red Bull, to feature a 70-foot roll-in ramp that leads to a 50-gap and then a quarterpipe ramp with a 27-foot wall.

"Midnight's Children" was published more than 30 years ago, and it made Salman Rushdie a literary star. The novel won the Booker Prize, beating out such books as Muriel Spark's "Loitering With Intent," Doris Lessing's "The Sirian Experiments" and "The Comfort of Strangers" by Ian McEwan. Rushdie would be propelled much further into the public consciousness two books later, after the publication of "The Satanic Verses. " Iranian cleric Ayatollah Khomeini declared a fatwa in 1989 seeking the assassination of Rushdie as punishment for the book's ostensible blasphemies.
