Masonn Byrd, 25, of Kenai was taken into custody for the Sunday morning shooting deaths of Lisa Rutzebeck and her mother Rachelle Armstrong. Byrd’s phone pinged a cell tower in the neighborhood three minutes before the murders were reported, according to the documents. “MASONN BYRD was interviewed and denied involvement. DWIGHT DAVIS, MASONN’S grandfather, was also interviewed. DWIGHT stated that MASONN had told him, the morning after the shooting, that he shot the two women and that he was going to throw the gun into the river. MASONN also told DWIGHT that the shooting occurred over money and that he thought he would get away with it because there were no witnesses.” According to court documents, “During a review of RACHELLE (SHELLY) ARMSTRONG’s cellphone, multiple conversations related to dealing drugs were located. Additionally, the records indicated that SHELLY owed MASONN BYRD money for a drug debt. Their text conversations continued throughout the day and finished approximately 20 minutes before the murders. Police found the two women in an apartment on California Avenue with gunshot wounds to the head and bullet casings for a .380-caliber automatic. Byrd faces two charges of first-degree murder, he was arraigned in Kenai Wednesday morning. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A Kenai man that was arrested late Tuesday in connection with the murder of two women told a family member it was over an unpaid drug debt, according to court documents. In one of the texts on the day of the murder at 4:29pm, MASONN wrote, “I just done with dealing with people Ima end up hurting someone lol” SHELLY replied that she understood and is trying to get others to pay her the money they owe to her.” At this time the investigation is ongoing. Additional details will be posted as they are made available.
2:33 Share your voice What makes this reference so special is that Stranger Things star Winona Ryder (Joyce Byers) also starred in the comedic Tim Burton ghost movie Beetlejuice. There is a bit of a time discrepancy here. Stranger Things season 3 is set in 1985, but Beetlejuice came out in 1988. Does that mean Mr. Clarke is a time traveler? That would be quite a twist. Now playing: Watch this: See all the Stranger Things season 3 photos Tags While the writers didn’t want to give any hints, they at least told us what it wasn’t. That list included Back to the Future, Jaws, Wonder Woman, posters, songs, Nancy Drew, shirts, Radio Shack, Mall Rats, Terminator, Evil Dead and Alien. They did confirm it was a pop culture movie reference.You can continue the search on your own if you think you have what it takes, or you can check out the answer, which was finally delivered by Twitter user Hackyzach. Hackyzach correctly identified the Easter egg as Beetlejuice’s tombstone, which was tucked into the town model created by science teacher Mr. Clarke. “Winner, winner, banana boat for dinner,” the writers declared.

Southern superstar Chiranjeevi’s son Ram Charan Teja who is making his Bollywood debut as Inspector Vijay in “Zanjeer” remake is serious about his career in the Hindi film industry.The Tollywood actor, who is presently in Mumbai for the film’s shooting, is reportedly on a hunt for a home in the financial capital. The “Magadheera” star apparently took help from his mentor Salman Khan to buy a suitable place in Mumbai.After a week of searching for a house, Ram Charan has zeroed in on a property in Bandra, close to where Salman Khan lives. The house is also close to Shahrukh Khan’s house “Mannat”, which is located in the same district.Though several southern stars like Rajinikant, Kamal Hasan, Surya, R. Madhavan and Ram Charan’s father Chiranjeevi have had a share of success in Bollywood, they all went back to their respective film industry. Ram Charan, on the other hand, is thinking of establishing a parallel career in the Hindi film industry.”He is already the numero uno in Hyderabad. Ram doesn’t want Zanjeer to be a one-off blockbuster in Hindi like his dad’s Pratibandh. He wants to build a career brick by brick in Mumbai. And that means setting up a home in Mumbai,” The Times of India quoted a close friend of the actor as saying.Apart from pursing his career in Bollywood, another reason why he is hunting for a house in Mumbai is because of his wife Upasana Kamineni.Upasana Kamineni is the vice-chairman of Apollo Charity and granddaughter of Prathap C Reddy, the Managing Director of the Apollo Hospitals. Apparently, Kamineni has some hospital expansions plans in Mumbai.”Upasana and Ram want to set up a home in Mumbai from where they can pursue their respective careers. While she will work on the hospital project in Mumbai Ramcharan intends to build his Bollywood career beyond Zanjeer. He has already given the nod to another film with the Zanjeer director Apoorva Lakhia which will also star Abhishek Bachchan and is in talks with a leading corporate house in Mumbai for a lucrative 3-film deal,” the friend said.The Telugu actor confirmed the news saying that he was in Mumbai last week in search of a good property and saw three properties in and around Bandra.”I was in Mumbai last week to buy a home. I saw three properties in and around Bandra. Now I am going back to Mumbai with my wife to finalize the deal. The deal will be sealed in a week,” the actor said.
Microsoft to release a tablet OS in 2012 While some reporters and bloggers are speculating that this may be part of Windows attempt to create an iPad killer, few are pointing out the holes in that theory. First is the fact that Windows current model of licensing out the Windows 7 operating system to third party tablet makers is relatively low risk and highly profitable for Microsoft. Few companies are willing to rock the boat on a profitable business model. The second reason that Microsoft trying to make their own iPad killer would be unlikely is that history is not on their side. Many of us remember the ill fate of the Zune, which at the time was launched as competition to the now ubiquitous iPod family of device. Then there is the Kin, a Microsoft phone, which failed to take a bite out of the iPhone popularity. It was pulled from the market after failing to sell. If Microsoft has learned it lesson about coming late to market against Apple in mobile devices, they’ll stick with their profitable licensing agreements and let their partners with stronger track records in mobile, like Motorola, try to make an iPad killer.

More information: via Digitimes Explore further (PhysOrg.com) — Rumors are circulating around that Microsoft may be bringing a Windows 8 tablet to consumers in 2012. Reporters over at Digitimes have been theorizing, based on information from a chip-supplier, that the Redmond, Washington, based software giant may be putting out a tablet of its own in the near future. As is expected with a rumor of this nature, the company has declined to comment.

Citation: Astronomers characterize two ‘super-Earths’ in a distant planetary system (2017, May 16) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2017-05-astronomers-characterize-super-earths-distant-planetary.html More information: K2-106, a system containing a metal rich planet and a planet of lower density, arXiv:1705.04163 [astro-ph.EP] arxiv.org/abs/1705.04163AbstractAims: Planets in the mass-range from 2 to 15 MEarth are very diverse. Some of them have very low, others very high densities. Method: We determined the masses, radii and the densities for the two transiting planets orbiting K2-106, which have been previously found. The inner one is an ultra-short period planet with an orbital period of 0.57 days. The outer planet has orbital period of 13.3 days. Results: The two planets have similar masses, though very different densities. For K2-106b we derive M_p=7.69+/-0.82 MEarth, Rp=1.52+/-0.16 REarth, and a high density of 12.0 -3.2+4.8 gcm-3. For K2-106c, we find 6.79+/-2.29 MEarth, R_p=2.59+/-0.27 REarth and a relatively low density of 2.4-1.1+1.6 gcm-3. Conclusions: Since the systems contains two planets of almost the same mass, but different distances from the host star, it is an excellent laboratory to study atmospheric escape. Comparing the mass and radius of the inner planet with composition models implies that it has an iron core containing at least 50% of its mass. Such a high metal content is surprising, particularly given that the star has solar abundance. We discuss various formation scenarios for this unusual planet.

Located approximately 825 light years away from the Earth, K2-106 is a 5 billion-year-old star of spectral type G5. With a radius of about 0.83 solar radii, the star is 7 percent less massive than the sun. In 2016, researchers detected two planets transiting this star with orbital periods of 0.57 and 13.3 days.Now, Guenther’s team obtained absolute and relative radial velocity measurements of K2-106 using five different spectrographs worldwide in order to reveal more detailed information about this planetary system. The new observations show that the two exoplanets have almost the same mass, but orbit at different distances from the host, which makes the system an excellent laboratory to study atmospheric escape processes.”We determined the masses, radii and the densities for the two transiting planets orbiting K2-106, which have been previously found,” the paper reads.The researchers found that the planet closest to the star—K2-106 b—has a radius of about 1.52 Earth radii and is about 7.7 times more massive. Therefore, it has a high density of approximately 12 g cm-3.K2-106 c is bigger in size as its radius is about 2.6 Earth radii. However, the planet is less massive—6.8 Earth masses—which gives a relatively low density of 2.4 g cm-3.The team also revealed new information about the composition of K2-106 b. They assume that it is a metal-rich planet with an iron core containing at least 50 percent of its mass.”Ultra-short-period planets forming close to the star should all be iron-rich. Clearly, more research in this field is needed, but the results so far obtained show that studies of ultra-short period planets can give us key information on how and where low-mass planets form. The high metal content of the planet is thus very interesting, particularly because the host star has solar metallicity,” the authors wrote in the paper.The researchers noted that the K2-106 is particularly interesting because it hosts an ultra-short period planet subject to a strong stellar irradiation and an outer planet at a relatively large distance from the host star, where the atmospheric escape rate is expected to be low. Thus this system could provide important insights into the formation and evolution of planets. However, many observations are still needed to uncover more details about K2-106 and its planets.”K2-106 is a very interesting system that deserves further studies. (…) The next logical steps are search for the extended, escaping exosphere atmosphere of K2-106 b that has been suggest by Mura (et al. 2011) by obtaining spectroscopic transit observations in a similar way as we have done for CoRoT-7b (Guenther et al. 2011),” the astronomers concluded.
