Colo. boy, 6, suspended for reciting 'Sexy' lyric

He's suspended and he knows it

A 6-year-old boy was suspended from his school in Aurora, Colo., for three days after school officials said he told a girl "I'm sexy and I know it," a line from a popular song by LMFAO. D'Avonte Meadows, a first-grader at Sable Elementary in suburban Denver, is accused of sexual harassment and disrupting other students, according to a letter the school district sent to his mother after he was sent home Wednesday. The mother, Stephanie Meadows, said her son doesn't know the meaning of sexual harassment. It's the second time he has gotten in trouble for quoting the song, she said.

Stress, family medical history or possibly even poison led to the death of Vladimir Lenin, contradicting a popular theory that a sexually transmitted disease debilitated the former Soviet Union leader, a UCLA neurologist said Friday. Dr. Harry Vinters and Russian historian Lev Lurie reviewed Lenin's records for an annual University of Maryland School of Medicine conference in Baltimore that examines the death of famous figures. Lenin suffered several strokes before dying in 1924 at age 53. What caused them isn't clear.

Space station shot set May 19

A private U.S. company has set a new date for launching a cargo ship to the International Space Station. Space Exploration Technologies Corp., better known as SpaceX, said Friday it was now aiming for a May 19 liftoff of its Falcon rocket and Dragon capsule. It will be the first commercial cargo run to the space station. The launch of the supply ship had been scheduled for Monday but was delayed for more software testing. The test flight is already three months late.
