Child welfare officials visit Octomom's home


LA HABRA, Calif. (AP) – Police and child welfare officials have visited the Southern California home of Octomom Nadya Suleman after getting a complaint that her 14 children were living in squalor. La Habra police Sgt. Daniel Barnes says officers and Orange County Department of Family and Children’s Services officials left Suleman’s home Tuesday evening after determining the children weren’t in danger. The entertainment news website TMZ.com says Suleman’s hairstylist told police the house was a mess and there was only one working toilet in the home. Barnes would only say someone reported filth in the home. He tells City News Service that an examination of the home didn’t reveal anything unusual. The 36-year-old Suleman gave birth to eight babies in January 2009. They are the world’s longest-living octuplets.

US orders for long-lasting goods plunge in March


WASHINGTON (AP) – Orders for long-lasting factory goods fell by the largest amount in three years last month, mostly because demand for commercial aircraft plummeted. But companies also ordered less machinery and other equipment, a sign manufacturing output may slow. The Commerce Department says orders for durable goods dropped 4.2 percent in March, the steepest fall since January 2009. Commercial aircraft orders, a volatile category, fell by nearly 50 percent. Excluding transportation equipment, orders declined 1.1 percent. That’s the second drop in that category in three months. And orders for  so-called “core” capital goods, a good measure of business investment plans, declined 0.8 percent. Companies are reducing their orders for steel and other metals, industrial machinery and computers.

New case of mad cow disease in California


WASHINGTON (AP) – The Agriculture Department says a central California dairy cow that tested positive for mad cow disease has what scientists say is an atypical case. The agency’s chief veterinary officer, John Clifford, said Tuesday the animal didn’t get the disease from eating infected cattle feed. Bruce Akey of the New York State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory at Cornell University says that means it’s “just a random mutation that can happen every once in a great while in an animal.” It is the first new case of mad cow disease in the U.S. since 2006 and the fourth ever discovered in the country. Health authorities say the animal never was a threat to the nation’s food supply. Baker Commodities executive Dennis Luckey told The Associated Press that the disease was discovered at his company’s Hanford, Calif., transfer station when the company selected the cow for random sampling.
