Steph Curry on his moon landing conspiracy comments: 'Obviously I was joking'

NBA player Steph Curry said he was joking when he said he didn’t believe humans landed on the moon.

The remark was made when the athlete made an appearance on the Monday episode of the “Winging It” podcast, which is hosted by Atlanta Hawks players Vince Carter and Kent Bazemore.

ESPN reported that the Golden State Warriors player was in the middle of a lighthearted discussion with teammate Andre Iguodala, Carter, Bazemore and podcast co-host Annie Finberg when the moon landing came up.

“We ever been to the moon?” Curry asked at the 46:45 mark of the episode. The group replied, “No.”

“They’re going to come get us,” Curry said. “Sorry, I don't want to start conspiracies.”

Finberg was skeptical, but the others mentioned part of the theory that says director Stanley Kubrick staged the moon landing footage.

People quickly responded, criticizing Curry for spreading the conspiracy theory, especially when he has young fans.

“Obviously I was joking when I was talking on the podcast,” Curry told ESPN Wednesday. “I was silently protesting how stupid it was that people actually took that quote and made it law as, 'Oh my God, he's a fake-moon-landing truther,' whatever you want to call it, yada, yada, yada. So I was silently protesting that part about it, how the story took a life of its own.”

CNN reported that NASA responded to Curry’s claim Tuesday.

“There’s lots of evidence NASA landed 12 American astronauts on the Moon from 1969-1972,”  NASA spokesman Allard Beutel said in a statement. “We’d love for Mr. Curry to tour the lunar lab at our Johnson Space Center in Houston, perhaps the next time the Warriors are in town to play the Rockets.”

Curry told ESPN he’d take NASA up on the offer.

“In terms of the reaction that I've gotten, I am definitely going to take them up on their offer. I am going to educate myself firsthand on everything that NASA has done and shine a light on their tremendous work over the years and hopefully people understand that education is power, informing yourself is power,” the father of three said. “For kids out there that hang on every word that we say, which is important, understand that you should not believe something just because somebody says it. You should do your homework and understand what you actually believe.

“I’m going to go to NASA and I’m going to enjoy the experience wholeheartedly.”

Remnants of 140-year-old shipwreck revealed along shore of Lake Michigan

The remnants believed to be that of a ship that sunk 140 years ago have once again appeared along the shore of Lake Michigan.

>> Read more trending news 

Based on the location of the exposed timbers, researchers believe the wreck to be what’s left of the hull from the LC Woodruff, a commercial schooner carrying corn that sunk in November 1878. 

“Having lived on the Great Lakes and having done shipwreck research, no, it did not wash ashore," Allan Dake, a researcher with the Muskegon Heritage Museum, told MLive.com. "It’s in the same place it’s always been.”

Shifting waves and currents exposed what’s left of the vessel, Dake said. Its remnants have appeared twice before, in 1942 and 1974, he said. 

The 170-foot long barkentine schooner was built in 1866 in Buffalo, New York, and was capable of carrying 550 tons. The ship wrecked after a bad storm sank it in 13 feet of water about a half mile from shore, MLive.com reported. Three of the 13 crew members died. 

The wreck is not expected to be visible for long. 

"The sands are shifting, big storms will move large bodies of sand then reveal things," Valerie van Heest, president of the Michigan Shipwreck Research Association, told WXMI. "This may be gone with the next storm. It's a small window in time where we can look at these ships, the remains of these ships."

Boy who is blind, with autism, meets Santa; photos go viral

A boy from Texas found the true meaning of Christmas and Santa.

Matthew, who is blind and has autism, met Santa for the first time, KDFW reported.

Matthew’s interest in Santa started a few weeks ago when he found a Santa Claus figure in the store. Then he heard “Silent Night” playing on the radio. He was confused, asking his mother, Misty Wolf, if Christmas was for Santa’s birthday or for Jesus’ birthday, KDFW reported.

Wolf then took her 6-year-old son to a local store that was hosting a Santa meet and greet. 

Wolf whispered to the man in the chair about her son’s blindness and autism, and said he was interested in  Santa, KXAS reported.

Santa put Wolf at ease, telling her, “Say no more,” KXAS reported.

Matthew got close to Santa’s and started touching the big man’s beard. 

The magic happened when a photo showed how comfortable Matthew was with the jolly elf. His parent said it showed the trust her little boy had in Santa that normally is only shown at home, KDFW reported.

Santa encouraged Matthew’s interest, inviting him to pull his beard, feel his hat and even touch a reindeer. 

Wolf said that her son’s favorite book is “T’was the Night Before Christmas” but  he didn’t know what a twinkle in Santa’s eye really was.

“It never occurred to me, but Matthew didn’t really know what a twinkle was. He wanted to know what eyes that twinkle were,” Wolf told KDFW.

Santa allowed the little boy to find out, by touching one of Santa’s eyes.

And what did Matthew ask Santa for during their meeting?

Water.

“He’s not like other kids who want toys. He’s not into that. He’d rather have the experience and find out what Santa is,” Wolf told KDFW.

Janet Jackson, Stevie Nicks, Def Leppard among 2019 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame announced seven inductees for its 34th annual ceremony Thursday. Janet Jackson, Radiohead, Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks, The Cure, Roxy Music and The Zombies are the newest class of inductees. 

According to the Hall of Fame website, “inductees are recognized for having contributed over 25 years of musical excellence.” 

>> Read more trending news 

NPR reported that the inductees were voted upon by over 1,000 past winners, historians and members of the music industry. The seven inductees were chosen from 18 nominees, which were announced in October.

Nicks is already a member as part of Fleetwood Mac, but she’s a first-time nominee as a solo artist. Billboard reported that Def Leppard and Roxy Music are also first-time nominees. Janet Jackson was nominated twice before and The Zombies were nominated three times.

“I have a lot to say about this, but I will save those words for later. For now I will just say, I have been in a band since 1968,” Nicks said in a statement, according to Rolling Stone. “To be recognized for my solo work makes me take a deep breath and smile. It’s a glorious feeling.”

“Now we can stop holding our breath,” Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott told Rolling Stone. “How wonderful to be in the same club as the Rolling Stones and the Beatles and the Who and Queen … It’s a nice badge of honor.”

“Thank you Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,” Jackson said in a statement. “I am truly honored and I am happy to be in there with my brothers.”

The New York Times reported Radiohead and The Cure were nominated twice before, but it’s unlikely Radiohead will be at the ceremony. Most of the band expressed no interest in a 2017 interview with Rolling Stone

“It’s probably not at the top of my list of things to do,” drummer Phil Selway said.

“I don’t care,” lead guitarist and keyboardist Jonny Greenwood said. “Maybe it’s a cultural thing that I really don’t understand.”

“I don’t want to be rude, but if you ask me what I’d rather be doing that night, I’d rather be sitting at home in front of the fire or going to a gig,” guitarist Ed O’Brien said. “I realized years ago that I didn’t like award ceremonies.”

Lead singer Thom Yorke echoed O’Brien’s remarks: “It wouldn’t be the first place … don’t ask me things like that. I always put my foot in my mouth.”

Bassist Colin Greenwood was the only member to lean more positively toward an induction. “I’d be grateful if we got in. Look at the other people that have been inducted. I don’t know if everyone else will go, though.”

Collectively, the band issued a broader statement in response to the induction news. 

“The members of Radiohead have been surprised to learn of the band’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2019,” they said in a statement, according to Variety. “The band thanks the Hall of Fame voting body and extends congratulations to this year’s fellow inductees.”

The 2019 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be March 29 at the Barclays Center in New York. An edited special will air in the spring on HBO.

The teen exchanged gunfire with police outside Dennis Intermediate School in Richmond, Indiana, before turning the gun on himself, said Indiana State Police Sgt. John Bowling. There were no other injuries.

Students were evacuated to Richmond High School.

Police don’t yet know why the teen targeted the middle school or whether he was a student.

Police called for noise complaint, end up playing video games

Video games can get heated, and loud, when a group of friends get together to play. And it can get so loud to some that the police are called in. 

That’s what recently happened during a game of “Super Smash Bros,” Yahoo News reported

Jovante M. Williams said someone complained that his buddies were too loud and called police. 

Williams told Yahoo News that they didn’t want to bother anyone, so they were playing on mute. 

Police confirmed that they weren’t breaking any noise level rules and asked what they were playing and they told them “Super Smash Bros.”

Navy sailors deployed before holidays say tearful goodbyes to loved ones

Families waved goodbye to their loved ones serving in the Navy on Wednesday morning when about 400 sailors were deployed from Florida's Naval Station Mayport just 13 days before Christmas.

>> Watch the news report here

“It’s a hard time,” sailor Brandon Sanderson told Jacksonville's ActionNewsJax, pausing as he was overcome with emotion. “Sorry. Seven months though, seven months. We’ll be back.”

Tearful goodbyes from the pier were a common sight.

Sanderson was one of the approximately 400. He left warm wishes with his four daughters, wife and mother Wednesday morning.

“Our whole family, church family at Christ Church we’re just praying for him,” said Sanderson's wife. “And (we) look forward to him coming home soon. We’re just counting the days.”

They’re deploying in support of maritime security operations, crisis response and theater security cooperation. They’ll also provide a forward naval presence in Europe and the Middle East. Sanderson said these days are never easy, but he remains focused on his mission.

“Make it all back alive,” he said. “See our family, friends, loved ones and everything, and get on about our day.”

More than 4,500 sailors and Marines will deploy in the Kearsarge Amphibious Ready Group, and 22nd Marine Expeditionary Group will deploy next week to meet the ship.

“Gotta be there to support one another,” said Sanderson. “That’s why we’re here, (to) support the country, support one another.”

Scam alert: Fake Amazon email targets online shoppers

The holiday season is a busy time of year for everybody, including scammers.

>> Watch the news report here

There is an email scam going around with a new twist that targets online shoppers.

This latest scam specifically goes after people who use Amazon.

While online shopping may be more convenient, it can also be riskier.

>> On WFTV.com: Amazon worker accused of stealing eyebrow makeup, gift cards and electronics accessories

In the latest scam, an email that appears to be from Amazon says a user's password needs to be reset.

They are instructed to enter their username and password on a page that looks authentic.

The scammers have even figured out how to steal from customers immediately.

"They just write a program that, as soon as you submit that, they get it," said Adam Estes, a computer security engineer. "And it automatically logs in and starts buying things like that."

Experts said an account might be maxed out before users even know they were scammed, and it's impossible to trace.

>> Read more trending news 

"They can buy things like a Facebook gift card or an Amazon gift card or all kinds of things and have it sent straight to an email address, and it's an instant delivery," Estes said.

The scam might have dozens of different versions.

The emails might say there is a problem with an order or that a user must update shipping information.

Estes said customers should never do anything directly from an email.

"So if it says you need to reset your password, go directly to Amazon.com and log in," he said. "Similar scams target other online accounts and even your banking information."

Should text messages be taxed to help the poor? One state is considering it

If you live in California, you may soon have to pay a tax for your text messages.

According to the Mercury News and KGO, the state's Public Utilities Commission will vote Jan. 10 on the tax, which "likely would be billed as a flat surcharge per customer ... not a fee per text." Officials have not said how much that charge would be.

The money would be used "to help support programs that make phone service accessible to the poor," the Mercury News reported.

Opponents said the fees could cost California consumers more than $45 million annually.

"When hardworking Californians are already feeling taxed and 'feed' to death, not every new idea needs a new tax to fund it," Carl Guardino, Silicon Valley Leadership Group president and CEO, told KGO

Meanwhile, the CTIA, a trade group that represents wireless carriers, is arguing that the PUC can't legally charge the fee because "texting is an information service like email, not a telecommunications service," the Mercury News reported

Nearly 100 Amazon packages dumped on side of road in Georgia

Almost 100 Amazon packages were dumped on the side of the road Tuesday night in Georgia.

WSB-TV's Lauren Pozen was in Peachtree Hills, a neighborhood in Atlanta's Buckhead, where dozens of Amazon boxes and bags were left in a cul-de-sac on Highland Drive.

Pozen talked to a man and his wife who said they saw something off the side of the road that they initially thought was just trash. 

Charles McIntyre said he saw about 20 or 25 Amazon packages stacked up neatly near a fire hydrant, some of them open. In an odd twist, it didn't look like anything had been stolen.

"You would think if somebody's stealing something, they would ransack and grab what they could," McIntyre said.

McIntyre called police, who came out to pick up the packages. Pozen spoke to Atlanta police, who said they will send those packages back to Amazon. 

WSB-TV has reported on several incidents of "porch pirates" stealing packages off people's front porches, but that is not what happened here. 

"Somebody took the time to open them neatly, not ripping anything, and as I opened it, the gift was still in there," McIntyre said. 

McIntyre said the boxes were full of a variety of things, but at least one was full of golf balls. 

Neighbors are still perplexed as to how the packages got there and who left them.

Pozen spoke with another neighbor whose mail was stolen last night, but it's unclear if there's any correlation with the dropped-off packages. 

McIntyre jokes that maybe Christmas came too early.

"Maybe Santa dropped them off by mistake," McIntyre said. "He thought he had them at the right house, but Santa wouldn't open the gifts."

Amazon is advising customers who live in Buckhead and have ordered anything in recent days to report any issues with shipments. 

Bus driver's quick thinking likely stopped child abduction, police say

A quick-thinking bus driver helped prevent a potential child abduction in Georgia, according to Atlanta's WSB-TV.

Investigators in Jefferson said a brother and sister were about to get off their school bus Wednesday afternoon along Jett Roberts Road when an older, balding, white man in a gray, four-door car called out to the children to come get into his car.

The bus driver, not recognizing the car, spoke with the man through the bus window and asked the children if they knew the man, police said.

The driver kept the children on the bus and called their mother, authorities said. The children’s mother said she didn’t send anyone to pick them up or know anyone matching the description, according to police.

That’s when the car drove off.

Officers said they were not able to get a good view of the suspect’s vehicle from the bus cameras. Police said they are warning others to be on the lookout for the man. They will also be stepping up patrols in the area.
