Over 40 years ago, perhaps the most infamous skyjacking in American history took place over the skies of the west coast of America. A man known only as “D.B. Cooper” managed to hijack a Boeing 727 and apparently get away with $200,000 after parachuting out of the plane. He was never found. Last year, new DB Cooper leads were announced by the FBI, and their investigation continues to this day.
Apparently a credible tip came from a retired member of law enforcement. This officer had a contact who may have known the skyjacker, though the suspect has been deceased for 10 years. This won't stop the investigation, as new DB Cooper leads are still relevant to the FBI because they would like to finally be able to close the case.
The family of the suspect are cooperating with the investigation, and the FBI are examining the property of the deceased for fingerprint and DNA traces. They are hoping to match it with a DNA sample of DB Cooper taken from his tie, which he removed b...

The blogosphere has blown up, not only as a good means of communication, but as a powerful marketing strategy as well. Unfortunately, since the early part of the 21st century, spammers have been coming up with increasingly annoying means to try and get their sites to rank on major search engines.
If you have done any ring time on the blogosphere, you already recognize the title “Very nice post I certainly love this website keep on it.” This is a statement that many bloggers find filling up their inboxes no matter what they do. (If I had a dime for every one of these...) In fact, some companies actually outsource the spamming as a job throughout parts of Asia. They’re paid per accepted comment, but because they have to move such high volume per hour, they never take the time to read the post. Instead, they endlessly type generic things like (you guessed it), “Very nice post, I certainly love this website...”
Ranking Means Everything
