Larry Bowlsby, 49, of Warrenton, Missouri, pleaded guilty in October and was sentenced on Thursday.A news release from the Department of Justice said filed court documents and Thursday’s sentencing hearing show that sometime before Sept. 26, 2007, Bowlsby built a pipe bomb. Court records indicate that on Sept. 26, 2007, Bowlsby and two minors entered the Walmart in Sylva, and once inside, Bowlsby placed the pipe bomb in the bag of one of the minors but removed it once he was inside the store.The release said court records show Bowlsby took the cart and the pipe bomb to the camping supplies section of the store, where he placed it among the small propane cylinders for camp stoves, ignited the device and left the area. The device detonated and caused an explosion. Court records show five people were nearby when the device exploded and had to be taken to the hospital for minor injuries. Bowlsby and the two minors drove away in Bowlsby’s vehicle.Authorities were also able to recover Bowlsby’s fingerprint from the shopping cart. Law enforcement ran the print against national databases in 2007 with no success. However, they ran it again in 2016, and the print matched Bowlsby, whose prints were put into the system after he was arrested in Colorado in 2008 and eventually pleaded guilty to charges.Bowlsby is in federal custody and will be transferred to the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons upon designation of a federal facility. All federal sentences are served without the possibility of parole. The man who detonated a pipe bomb in Sylva’s Walmart has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison. The incident happened in 2007.

When I got my first smartphone, the original black and white Danger Sidekick, the data plan cost me something like $40 a month for unlimited data plus something like 200 anytime minutes. These days an unlimited data plan will cost you more like $30 a month, not including voice minutes. But the original Sidekick couldn’t play music or movies. You couldn’t download additional apps (the app catalog came along in later models). All you could do was browse the Web with its scaled down browser, use AOL Instant Messenger and e-mail. I suppose it was easy to offer an “unlimited” data plan, when it was hard to actually download much.But the days of unlimited data are going away. AT&T already dropped its unlimited plan for new users, and Verizon is about to do the same. We’ve written before about the mobile data bottleneck, which is only going to get worse as more smart phones and tablets get online.In an article at Enterprise Efficiency Andrew Froehlich, makes the case that cloud providers should also become Internet providers. Specifically, he suggests Apple and Google get into the ISP business.The problem I see with this idea:1) ISPs increasingly are becoming cloud providers. Earlier this year Verizon bought infrastructure-as-a-service provider Terremark. Then Time Warner Cable bought NaviSite and CenturyLink bought Savvis. These telcos are interested in making money on both ends: selling customers both bandwidth and storage.2) It’s not easy to become a telco, though Google is trying.What do you think?

BURNABY, B.C. — A coroner’s inquest will be held this week into the 2013 suicide of a former RCMP spokesman who provided the first reports on the death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski following a confrontation with police at Vancouver’s airport.Sgt. Pierre Lemaitre briefly acted as the face of the Mounties after Dziekanski was jolted multiple times with a police Taser during the 2007 confrontation.Lemaitre, who was 55 when he died, had said that Dziekanski was combative and that only two bursts from the Taser were used to subdue him.A civilian video later showed those statements were incorrect, but Lemaitre testified at an inquiry into the death that he released details provided by homicide detectives.The inquiry concluded Lemaitre may not have known the information was wrong, but by then he had been transferred out of media relations.A lawsuit filed by the officer’s widow after his death and settled out of court alleged Lemaitre had been made a scapegoat in the Dziekanski case.Deputy chief coroner Vincent Stancato and a jury will hear evidence in Burnaby from witnesses under oath to determine the facts surrounding the suicide.Coroner’s office spokesman Andy Watson said in an emailed statement that jurors will have the opportunity to make recommendations to prevent deaths under similar circumstances.He said an inquest can be ordered if the chief coroner believes a “death resulted from a dangerous practice or circumstance.”Watson’s statement also said an inquest is held if the chief coroner “has reason to believe that the public has an interest in being informed of the circumstances surrounding the death.”The Canadian Press
