    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico resident has been cited after federal officials say he tried to smuggle 76 pounds of bologna into the U.S. from Mexico by hiding it in a spare tire.

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection said last week that the eight rolls of Mexican bologna were discovered aboard a truck at an El Paso port of entry on Friday.

    According to officials, officers detected an anomaly in the appearance of a Ford F-150 as it arrived at the Paso Del Norte international crossing port. Agents scanned the spare tire with a "Buster" density meter.

  • 5 quake survivors saved from rubble in Turkey--video extras

    ERCIS, Turkey (AP) — Five people were pulled out alive Monday from the rubble in eastern Turkey after a 7.2-magnitude quake leveled buildings and killed some 272 people. Four of them were rescued after one managed to call for help with his cell phone.

    Dozens of people were trapped in mounds of concrete, twisted steel and construction debris after hundreds of buildings in two cities and mud-brick homes in nearby villages pancaked or partially collapsed in Sunday's earthquake.

    Marching requires the ability to memorize field position. To move to that position, one must be able to balance while moving backwards on tip-toe — and just-for-fun, do it while keeping time in your  head and feet. Oh, and of course, play an instrument while moving. Think you’ve got it? Now try to do it all at once.
