|Hundreds starstruck by solar eclipse in OronoWVII ABC 7 / 13 h. 1 min. ago more|
ORONO - The frenzy is all over, but earlier Monday afternoon more than 300 people in Orono watched as the moon and the sun crossed paths. While the skies may have darkened a bit, that didn't cast a shadow on everyone's excitement. Millions across the country stopped what they were doing Monday to stare at the sun. "It's a wonder, it really is," said Susan Keltner, who is from Tennessee but vacationing in Maine. Maine was no exception to the eclipse fever. "We are on our way to Canada but we decided to stay here just one more day, just because of this," said one viewer. Hundreds went to the Emera Astronomy Center to view this phenomenon, even though we weren't in the path of totality. "It is only partial eclipse, we'll get only 54% covered here," said Alex Koch, a graduate student at UMaine studying astrophysics. "You have to be at the right place at the right time, that's much rarer so this is a very big time for us," said Andrew Teller, a graduate student at UMaine studying astrophysics. Most were using their eclipse glasses. "You can almost see the moon, but you see the sun," said Nolan, 7. "My grandmother tells stories of when she was little and she would go around looking for glasses to see the eclipse with all the kids in her neighborhood, and I'm excited to be part of history I guess," said Isabella McNutt. The astronomy center also set up telescopes with special solar filters. Others leaving it to their own devices: pinhole projectors made out of cereal boxes. Even though it only lasted a few hours, it was still an event many will remember for years to come. But if you missed it, don't worry! There's another on the way. "It's going to be in 2024 and that time we will have a total solar eclipse, so it will be even better than it is today," Teller said. One group of UMaine students were actually in South Carolina helping produce a live view of the eclipse. That was streamed on NASA's website.
|Maine Missing Persons helping DEEMI search and rescue missionsWVII ABC 7 / 14 h. 8 min. ago more|
ORONO - A new group is helping search for missing persons in the state of Maine, but unlike the organization's counter parts, they're taking a cyber approach. Founder and administrator of Maine Missing Persons, Chris Clark, is using cyber infrastructure to assist search and rescue missions across the state. "We kind of step in as that middle person to be able to help filter it," says Clark. Together with his wife and mother, Maine Missing Persons uses an open source intelligence framework to search the internet, social media, message boards and more, looking for clues for missing people. Clark says the group has worked on rescue missions for a number of years, but it truly came to fruition last year during the search for a missing Bangor man who went by the name of 'June Bug.' "That case in particular really got it started that we needed something like this," he says. Now, the group has officially teamed up with the Down East Emergency Medicine Institute, helping alleviate some of the strains that come with a search in rescue mission. "It's great because it's sort of like a resource allocation," says Richard Bowie, Director of DEEMI. "It's too much for one entity to do, so you almost need a second organized entity to do exactly what these guys are doing." This includes not only finding data, but storing it for future search and rescue missions. In addition, the group sifts through negative information posted on the web and verifies accurate information to provide back to the missing person's family. "They don't want to have to look through every bit of information such as the conspiracy theories that come with the case," says Clark. Maine Missing Persons is looking for people with everything from drone to wilderness experience to help gather information to provide to rescue groups. If you would like to leave a tip, one of the best ways to reach out to them is through their Facebook page.

|Belgrade man pleads guilty to multiple charges including sexual assaultWVII ABC 7 / 16 h. 6 min. ago more|
AUGUSTA - A man accused of sexually assaulting an 11 year old girl in Belgrade was supposed to go on trial today. That didn't happen because Travis Gerrier, 23, decided to plead guilty to charges including gross sexual assault and furnishing liquor to a minor. Authorities say Gerrier gave the child alcohol in June of 2015 and molested her in a porta potty. According to the Morning Sentinel, today's guilty pleas are conditional. He's challenging previous rulings that determined he's competent to stand trial and another to suppress his confession to police. If he wins his appeal, Gerrier will be allowed to withdraw his pleas. Otherwise, he's scheduled to be sentenced this fall.

|Fatal motorcycle accident puts numbers above last yearWVII ABC 7 / 17 h. 34 min. ago more|
STATEWIDE - A fatal motorcycle accident over the weekend brought this year's total to 11 deaths. That number is one more than this time last year . Maine State Police Spokesman Steve McCausland is seeing a mix of causes for these deaths and wide range of ages for the victims. However he said this year is just about on par with other years. He stated "There is no central factor involved in these motor cycle crashes. Other than we are on par with last year, which was a rather average year for motorcycle deaths in Maine. And we are certainly not going to repeat 2015's number where we had 31 motorcycles deaths that year." Motorcyclists are expected to be out for the next couple of month's as the weather remains warm. Maine State Police encourage drivers to keep an eye out for people on motorcycles, which can be hard to see out on the road.

When it comes to healthy lifestyles, experts endlessly debate the merits and liabilities of our options. Is a plant-based Mediterranean diet healthier than the relatively meat-heavy Paleo diet? Are complex carbohydrates our friends or not? Should we all be working out 45 minutes a day or is it okay to just walk a brisk mile a few times a week? Do yoga and tai chi count as exercise? How much sleep do we need? How about red wine? And coffee? Moderation may be the answer in most cases, but there is one lifestyle choice on which health experts unanimously agree: smoking.
