Bigfoot is in Oregon, according to a number of reports from local residents in the area.

People living near the Indian reservation have reported that they have been woken up by strange sounds coming from the nearby forest. They have described the noise as like roaring and screeching, which they say sounds nothing like anything they've ever heard before from the local wildlife.

The Indian reservation is 178,000 acres in the Blue Mountains, and it is believed there are about 1,500 residents living in or next to the reservation area. The reports of the strange noises have come from a number of residents living near an old reservation community center just north of Wildhorse Resort and Casino.

According to reports, the noises first started last month, and sparked rumors among locals that it was a young Bigfoot separated from its mother. :huh:

Residents have described the noises as frightening, and even the grown men in the area are reportedly very apprehensive to go out when the sounds are heard, according to The Oregonian.

One resident told the publication that his dog refused to go out for a walk because it was so terrified of the noises.

However, there are as usual many skeptics to the rumors of the Bigfoot being around. Some in the local community believe the Bigfoot rumors are ridiculous and that the noises are more likely to be from a fox or coyote.

Bigfoot, also known as sasquatch, is the name given to an ape-like creature that some people believe inhabits forests, mainly in the Pacific Northwest region of North America. Bigfoot is usually described as a large, hairy, bipedal humanoid. The term sasquatch is an anglicized derivative of the Halkomelem word s?sq'ets.

Many scientists discount the existence of Bigfoot and consider it to be a combination of folklore, misidentification, and hoax rather than an actual living animal.

They have pointed to the lack of physical evidence, and the large numbers of creatures that would be necessary to maintain a breeding population.

Why do believe naturally assume it's Bigfoot when something strange happens outside?

^ I guess it depends on the noise. And this is a traditional sasquatch area.

And this is a 'new' noise in the area, apparently.

People are not accustomed to hearing it.

I have heard the recordings of the genuine 'Bigfoot'.

They are bizarre and unnerving.

Analysis of these recordings say that the sounds could not be made by a human, and don't fit in with known animals.

Pics or nothing. Evidence is key.

That does not mean Bigfoot, though. It could be a lost or unknown specie. Or maybe a exotic pet turned loose. It could be a lot of things.

^ True -- and the unknown species is what sasquatch is. ;)

There have been pics -- which are most always derided as 'fake'.

Not many people are going to brave the night, in unfamiliar country, to take a flash picture of a potentially dangerous creature.

You volunteering ... ?

Analyze the singing voice of T-Pain and you'll conclude that the sounds could not have been made by a human, and doesn't fit in with known animals...

Love it. My fake evidence is evidence of my claim.

Umm. Biologists, zoologists, botanists, David Attenborough, and drunken hunters do it all the time.

If bigfoot existed, Ted Nugent would have it hanging on his wall by now.

      Samsung will mark safe Galaxy Note7 replacement devices with a blue 'S' on the box
      by Justin Luna



      Samsung has recently faced quite an embarrassing debacle after its latest Note flagship, the Galaxy Note7, was reported to be a fire hazard, following a series of incidents in which the handsets caught fire, even during 'normal use'. The company eventually announced a massive recall, asking users to return their Note7 handset.

      With this in consideration, Samsung has started preparing replacement units for its customers. But how exactly will they know that the new devices are safe, and not from the batch of defective units?

      via Samsung Australia When retailers and customers receive these new Note7 smartphones, their box will be marked with a small black square on the barcode sticker. Also, a more prominent sign to tell that the device is safe is the blue 'S' mark that can be found on the upper right portion of the side of the box.

      Moreover, Samsung will launch an IMEI database tool online tomorrow, where customers who were affected can enter their device's IMEI number, and find out whether the device they have been provided with is a hazardous one, or a new replacement. Alternatively, owners can call Samsung customer service to have their device verified.

      As of now, those affected can have their device replaced, or ask for a refund. In the US, you can also opt to swap to a Galaxy S7 or S7 edge. If you happen to own a Galaxy Note7, it is highly recommended that you power down the device without delay, in order to prevent any more accidents in the future.

      LOS ANGELES (AP) ? Casey Kasem was located in Washington state on Thursday, three days after a Los Angeles judge expressed concerns about the ailing radio host's whereabouts and safety.

      Kasem's condition was not immediately known, although his children rejoiced after days of uncertainty and said in a statement that locating their father was the first step in bringing him back to the Los Angeles area.

      Santa Monica police Sgt. Mario Toti said Kasem was located by the Kitsap County Sheriff's Department on Wednesday, hours after Kasem's children filed a missing person's report. Kasem's daughter Kerri, who was appointed his temporary conservator at a court hearing on Monday, had to wait for court filings before she was able to file the report.

      Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Daniel S. Murphy ordered adult protective services and court investigators to try to locate Kasem after an attorney for his wife told the court that the former "Top 40" host was no longer in the United States but he did not know where he was.

      Kerri Kasem's attorney Troy Martin said during the hearing that Kasem had been moved to an Indian reservation but was not sure because he had been frequently moved from medical facilities.

      "We are grateful to the local authorities for finding my dad," Kerri Kasem wrote in a statement. "We are one step closer to bringing him home."

      Casey Kasem, 82, has been in poor health in recent years. Kerri Kasem's court filings state her father is suffering from a form of dementia called Lewy Body Disease that had previously been incorrectly diagnosed as an advanced form of Parkinson's disease.

      Until Monday, Casey Kasem's wife of 34 years, Jean, had been in control of his medical care and controlled access to him. She has blocked three of Kasem's children from a previous marriage, including Kerri Kasem, from seeing him in recent months, according to court filings.

      Danny Deraney, a spokesman for Kerri Kasem and her siblings, said the family still had "grave concerns" about Casey Kasem's health.

      Jean Kasem's attorney Craig Marcus argued Monday that his client had the right to move her husband to any facility she saw fit. Murphy said he had the authority to order an investigation into Casey Kasem's whereabouts and appointed an independent attorney and doctor to evaluate the radio host.

      Australia's military is investigating whether a training exercise using explosives may have started one of the huge bush fires burning in the state of New South Wales.

      The exercise took place at a base near the town of Lithgow in the Blue Mountains region on Wednesday.

      It was the same day that a massive bush fire - which is still burning - began.

      About 200 homes have been destroyed in dozens of fires which have been burning for several days.

      The BBC's Jon Donnison in Sydney says this year's fires have come unusually early after unseasonably hot weather, and many are fearing a long and dangerous summer.

      One man has died - possibly of a heart attack - while trying to protect his home.

      The Australian Defence Force issued a statement about the fire burning between Lithgow and Bilpin, some 80 km (50 miles) north-west of Sydney, which is reported to have burned through 30,000 hectares (74,000 acres) and destroyed properties.

      It said it was investigating the circumstances of the fire, which began on defence land.

      "The fire started on 16 October, the same day that defence personnel were conducting an explosive ordnance training activity," the statement said. "Defence is investigating if the two events are linked.

      "Our thoughts are with those who have lost property or whose property is threatened by these devastating fires."

      Firefighters have been trying to make the most of a relatively cool day to tackle about 20 fires that are burning out of control, but higher temperatures and strong winds are expected to create difficult conditions in the coming days.

      New South Wales Rural Fire Service Deputy Commissioner Rob Rogers said Saturday's conditions were a "pause", but that the fire perimeter stretched for more than 500km.

      "We're by no means out of the woods," he told broadcaster ABC. "It's just calmed down a little bit and obviously we're bracing ourselves for these worsening conditions."

      Rural Fire Service Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said some of the fires were so large they would take some time to completely extinguish.

      "Firefighters will be working on these fires for weeks," he said.

      "It's all about reducing the risk of these fires to breach containment lines and run under hotter, drier, windier condition over coming days."

      Smoke and ash from the wildfires have blanketed the Sydney skyline.
