The regions first big storm of the season dumped more than 30cm of snow in parts of Wisconsin, Iowa and Min nesota yesterday and more was expected as the powerful system moved eastward. At least one person was killed in a 25-vehicle pile-up on a major Iowa highway. PORSCHE FISHING CHINA: A Porsche has been found in the nets of a group of Chinese fishermen. The Cayenne SUV which sells from around $110,000 here was landed recently while the crew was fishing off the coast of Beihai, southern China. The prestige car was covered in seaweed and barnacles, indicating it had been under water for at least two years, according to experts called in to assess it. DOOMSDAYDATING NEW YORK: Several social media and dating websites were flooded with ads for casual encounters before the Mayan calendar prediction of the end of the world yesterday. The New York Post reported websites such as Craigslist and OKCupid were packed with New Yorkers looking for hook-ups, rather than batteries and food. ASSANGEWARNING LONDON: WikiLeaks will release one million documents next year affecting every country in the world, founder Julian Assange has announced. Mr Assange made the announcement while delivering a Christmas message from the balcony of the Ecuadorean embassy in London. His appearance marked six months since he sought asylum there to avoid extradition to Sweden over claims of rape and sexual assault. Gunman mystery deepens Adam Lanza US: After a week of intensive investigation following the slaughter of 20 first graders and six women at a primary school in Newtown, normally promising lines of inquiry have turned up little if anything to shed light on what motivated Adam Lanza, 20, to kill. A preliminary examination of his mobile phone showed he had made or received few, if any calls, investigators said. No information has yet emerged on possible text message activity. Lanza appears to have spent much of his time during the weeks before the shooting in the basement of the home he shared with his mother, Nancy, playing violent video games on his computer, investigators believe based on interviews. His Xbox, an electronic gameplaying device that might have led to Lanzas game-playing partners across the internet, was apparently not used. And the thin, withdrawn, young man destroyed his home computer in a fashion that experts believe may have left it worthless to forensic examiners, as if he had set out to erase clues to his thinking, or who he may have communicated with. Meanwhile, the massacre has fuelled an unprecedented wave of social media discussion on US gun control, with the majority favouring new limits on firearms, a study by the Pew Research Centres Project for Excellence in Journalism shows.
