Will Wonder Woman Appear in Batman vs. Superman?
While Zack Snyder filmed the first scenes for Batman vs. Superman this weekend, the rumor that Wonder Woman will make an appearance in the movie continues to spread online. Variety got a chance to ask Greg Silverman, Warner Bros. president of creative development and worldwide production, on Monday whether the Man of Steel sequel will introduce other DC Comics such as Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and The Flash.
We have been doing a lot of thinking for years about how to best use all those characters and we love them," Silverman said. "Wonder Woman is an amazing character. I think it's a great opportunity both for box office success, but also to have an amazingly powerful female superhero." Considering he only mentioned Wonder Woman, the trade then specifically asked whether she is going to be part of the film, to which he replied: "We are taking it all very seriously and are trying to do a plan that's respectful to those characters and maximizes the stories as best they can. So everything that has been speculated are things that we've thought about." So while he dodged the question, he certainly did not say she wouldn't be part of it. We'll have to wait and see.

Yoda Wins World's Ugliest Dog Title
YODA'S short tufts of hair, protruding tongue, and long, seemingly hairless legs were enough to earn it the World's Ugliest Dog title at a Northern California fair. The 14-year-old Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix won the honor at the 23rd
annual contest at the Sonoma Marin Fair. Owner Terry Schumacher of Hanford, California,, said the dog had come a long way since she was found abandoned behind an apartment building. Ms Schumacher said she first thought the pooch was a rat. Yoda's distinction comes a year after a one-eyed Chihuahua named Princess Abby claimed victory. A pedigree Chinese crested won in 2008 and another Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix was the ugliest in 2007. In past years, the winner's owner has received a $1000 cheque.
An engineer dies and reports to the pearly gates. St. Peter checks his dossier and says, "Ah, you're an engineer — you're in the wrong place." So the engineer reports to the gates of hell and is let in. Pretty soon, the engineer gets dissatisfied with the level of comfort in hell, and starts designing and building improvements. After a while, they've got air conditioning, flush toilets and escalators, and the engineer is becoming a pretty popular guy. One day God calls Satan up on the telephone and asks with a sneer, "So, how's it going down there in hell?" Satan replies, "Hey, things are going great. We've got air conditioning, flush toilets and escalators, and there's no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next." God replies, "What??? You've got an engineer? That's a mistake — he should never have gotten down there; send him up here." Satan says, "No way! I like having an engineer on the staff, and I'm keeping him." God says, "Send him back up here or I'll sue." Satan laughs uproariously and answers, "Yeah right. And just where are You going to get a lawyer?"

Jellyfish swarm shuts down Swedish nuclear reactor
It wasn't a tsunami but it had the same effect - a huge cluster of jellyfish forced one of the world's largest nuclear reactors to shut down.
Souce: AAP. Operators of the Oskarshamn nuclear plant in southeastern Sweden had to scramble reactor number three on Sunday after tonnes of jellyfish clogged the pipes that bring in cool water to the plant's turbines. The pipes have now been cleared of jellyfish and engineers are preparing to restart the reactor, which at 1,400 megawatts of output is the largest boiling-water reactor in the world, says plant operator OKG. All three Oskharshamn reactors are boiling-water types, the same technology at Japan's Fukushima Daiichi plant that suffered a catastrophic failure in 2011 after a tsunami breached the facility's walls and flooded its equipment. Jellyfish are not a new problem for nuclear plants. Last year, California-based Diablo Canyon facility had to shut its reactor two after gobs of sea salp - a gelatinous, jellyfish-like organism - clogged intake pipes.
