Whenever a new species is introduced into an ecosystem it risks setting that ecosystem off balance, and that's why biologist Sudeep Chandra is worried about the increasing giant goldfish population of Lake Tahoe. The fish are not native to the lake, and could be competing with other species for food, and pooping so much that they are affecting the algae populations in the lake. The real fear of course is that the goldfish will master SPLASH and gain enough experience to eventually evolve into mighty Gyarados.

19-year-old University of Nevada student Tyler Coyner has been accused by police of leading a group of thirteen students who have been charged hacking into Pahrump Valley High School's network and changing the grades of Pahrump students for a fee. The activity supposedly took place over the course of two semesters. Coyner was a student at Pahrump Valley High School, and according to a profile written on him by the Pahrump Valley Times, he graduated as salutatorian with a 4.54 grade point average, which, according to Nye County Sheriff's Office, was also changed via nefarious digital means. When police raided Coyner's dorm, they claim to have found a flat-screen television that was supposedly stolen from a local Wal-Mart, along with equipment for making fake IDs. Coyner, along with the rest of the accused team and involved students, were charged with conspiracy, theft and computer intrusion. (PC World via Boing Boing)
