Ebola Nurse Halloween Costumes Raise Temps, Ire

Ebola Nurse Halloween Costumes Raise Temps, Ire

Brands On Sale(NEW YORK) -- The sexy cop and sexy Snow White costumes have new topical competition in the skimpy Halloween-wear section: Meet "Sexy Ebola Containment Suit.”Online retailer BrandsOnSale, which bills itself as a "Unique Costume Shop and more," unveiled the new ensemble, which features a short white dress, face shield, breathing mask, safety goggles and blue latex gloves at $59.99 per costume. A pair of bright yellow knee-high rubber boots can be purchased at an additional cost. The Internet met the news of the costume with mixed responses. "I'm in complete and utter disgust," one Twitter user reacted, while another questioned the costume's existence. "The fact that there's a sexy ebola nurse costume proves the sexy costumes have gone out of control," another wrote. Others found the gear humorous, writing "Ladies, you've still got time..." But will anyone actually buy these outfits? Yes, if recent trends are any indication. The National Retail Federation last month predicted that Americans will spend $2.8 billion on Halloween-wear this year, with $1.4 billion of that amount on adult costumes to outfit approximately 75 million grown-ups. Those numbers contribute to a record two-thirds of Americans buying costumes.

Martha Stewart Gets Candid About Prison

Martha Stewart Gets Candid About Prison

Don MacKinnon/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- “What doesn’t kill you, only makes you stronger” is not a philosophy Martha Stewart lives by, especially when it comes to prison. Stewart sat down with E! News anchor Giuliana Rancic in front of thousands of small business owners for the first annual Quickbooks Connect conference hosted by Intuit in San Jose, California. While the live interview that took place last week started off with Stewart detailing her humble beginnings, first working on Wall Street, then slowly growing her catering and media empire, the conversation turned to her 2004 stay in federal prison for obstructing justice. When asked about challenges the author and DIY guru has faced in her career and how she overcome them, Stewart herself offered up details about her time in jail, candidly saying, “I did fall in one deep hole, for a period of about 10 months.” Stewart, 73, had the audience laughing when she continued, “That deep hole was not a pleasant hole. And everybody tells you, ‘Oh, whatever happens to you, it will make you stronger, f*** them.” “It’s so mean, that is the stupidest thing. It doesn’t make you better at all. It could ruin you,” she said of her stint a decade ago in West Virginia’s Alderson prison. Stewart was found guilty in March 2004 after having been investigated by the SEC for selling thousands of shares of a stock right before the price plummeted. She was released from prison in March 2005. “Luckily, I have an extremely strong, healthy constitution, so my health never suffered,” she continued. “Health, optimism and that curiosity to see what shouldn’t happen, what you can overcome. So, I overcame a very difficult, nasty situation.” Stewart said her daughter Alexis and the rest of her family were instrumental to her getting through the ordeal. “The best of all, I had an extremely supportive audience,” she said. “Advertisers had to take a little rest from Martha Stewart Living and rightly so, because they really didn’t know what was right or what was wrong. And that was difficult for me to stomach and for the company to live through. But they came back ...and my customers never left.” Stewart explained how she stayed optimistic during this time. “Well, I wasn’t dying,” she added. “So, I couldn’t have fancy food for a while. That was fine. I was sent far away, but my friends came to visit me regularly and it was just a peculiar moment in time. It cannot define you. You cannot let something like that define a good person’s life. I am a good person and I am a creative person.”

Are ‘Fat Girl Costumes’ on Walmart Site a Halloween Trick?

Are ‘Fat Girl Costumes’ on Walmart Site a Halloween Trick?

Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Did Walmart's e-commerce site fall victim to a Halloween trick?The big-box behemoth offended legions of shoppers days before Halloween when a section of Walmart’s site devoted to the holiday was discovered to be labeled “Fat Girl Costumes.”Upon inspection, it appeared that all of the plus-size adult costumes for women had been aggregated to the category, with more than 20 pages of festive garb -- from gothic vampires to Olympic goddesses -- falling under the description."Not sure labeling these as 'Fat Girl Costumes' is the best approach," Krystyn Washburn tweeted at the company when she discovered the label on Oct. 21.Walmart's twitter account replied within the hour. But it was unclear whether the initial response was automated or not.

"Your comments and suggestions are important to us and help make Walmart even better. Thank you. -Nao," the account wrote.Six days later, the "Fat Girl Costumes" label was noted to have reappeared on the site.The category remained until reports were picked up by various media outlets and it was taken down."This never should have been on our site," a spokesperson for Walmart, Ravi Jariwala, told ABC News. "It is unacceptable, and we apologize. We are working to remove it as soon as possible and ensure this never happens again."

Twitpic Gets Last Minute Reprieve from Twitter

Twitpic Gets Last Minute Reprieve from Twitter

Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Twitpic has been granted a last minute reprieve after Twitter acquired the company's domain name and photo archive."I'm happy to announce that we have reached an agreement with Twitter to give them the Twitpic domain and photo archive, thus keeping the photos and links alive for the time being," Twitpic founder Noah Everett said in a blog post.The third-party service, which allowed people to attach photos to their tweets, had encouraged users to export their photos before the service was scheduled to shut down on Oct. 25.Everett said in a blog post last month that the site was being forced to close after he said Twitter demanded he abandon his trademark application or face losing access to their API.Moving forward, Twitpic will be in a read-only mode -- meaning users will no longer be able to add new photos to the service. Twitpic's iOS and Android apps have also been removed from app stores."Twitter shares our goal of protecting our users and this data," Everett said. "Also, since Twitpic’s user base consists of Twitter users, it makes sense to keep this data with Twitter."Earlier this year, Twitter beefed up its photo capabilities, allowing users to add up to four photos in one tweet and the ability to tag as many as 10 friends in an image.

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — You feel like driving?About three-quarters of Americans said they do, provided it's to a getaway destination.That's according to a survey by Enterprise Rent-A-Car, which found that more than half of the respondents would drive as far as 300 miles -- each way -- just to get away on a weekend.Many of those planning longer vacations also want to be in the driver's seat. One in three said they'd be open to traveling over 900 miles each way by car.The top reason why a majority of Americans enjoy driving to a leisure spot is because it puts them in control as to where and when they can go.Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Workers Often Have Lame Excuses for Missing Work

Workers Often Have Lame Excuses for Missing Work

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Look, if you're going to call work to say you're not coming in, at least come up with something better than "I accidentally got on a plane."That's one of the lame excuses actually given, according to a survey of 3,100 workers and 2,200 hiring managers conducted by CareerBuilder.As it happens, fewer people this year than last have called in sick when they weren't, 28 percent to 32 percent. However, 11 percent in the survey did admit telling the boss they wouldn't be in because the weather was lousy.Just whatever you do, avoid social media on the day you're out. The survey found that 24 percent of employers said they caught their worker in a lie by checking social media, and of that group, 22 percent fired the unfortunate nincompoops.Meanwhile, here are the top-ten lame excuses given for skipping work:

I just put a casserole in the oven. My plastic surgery needed some "tweaking" to get it just right. I was sitting in the bathroom when my legs fell asleep. When I stood, I fell and broke my ankle. I woke up in a good mood and don't want to ruin it. I was at the casino all weekend and still had money to gamble with on Monday. I had an unexpected tryst last night and I don't know where I am. I've gotten stuck in a supermarket blood pressure machine. I have a gallstone that I want to heal holistically. I tried to dry my uniform in the microwave and it caught fire. I accidentally got on a plane.

Takata Airbag Recall Questions Prompt DOT Investigation of NHTSA

Takata Airbag Recall Questions Prompt DOT Investigation of NHTSA

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- The Department of Transportation will conduct a review of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which has been criticized for its handling of the Takata airbag recall this past week, as well as other recalls this year, a senior administration official told ABC News.The airbags, made by Japanese auto supplier Takata, are blamed for at least three deaths and more than 100 injuries."The roll out of the safety advisory by NHTSA was not optimal, but what is most important right now is that a NHTSA-led investigation uncovered a very serious defect," a DOT spokesperson said. "Impacted vehicle owners should have their cars immediately checked by their manufacturers. This investigation is far from over and we will leave no stone unturned in the interest of public safety."Regulators had allowed a recall limited to areas of the country with "high humidity," but some lawmakers are now calling for an immediate nationwide recall of millions of potentially faulty airbags."There needs to be a real overhaul of the National Highway Transit Safety agency," said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., one of the lawmakers who has criticized the limited recall."These exploding airbags can be killers," he said. "They literally have killed people."Blumenthal said drivers should be given loaner cars to drive while the airbags are being replaced, to make it as easy as possible for people to get the work done."Disabling the airbags puts them in even greater danger so the only solution here is for a national recall with loaners provided to car owners at no cost to them," the senator said.On Monday, the NHTSA published an urgent plea on its website for more than 4.7 million owners of vehicles with Takata airbags to immediately get the airbags replaced, as the owners had been directed in previous recall notices over the past two years.Late Tuesday the government revised the number, however, saying actually 7.8 million vehicles have been subject to the airbag recall since 2013."The list below corrects the list that accompanied our October 20 advisory, which incorrectly included certain vehicles," the NHTSA website says, noting that the numbers could change again.Beyond the list of make and models on the NHTSA website, the federal agency says concerned vehicle owners can contact their manufacturer's website to search by the vehicle identification number (VIN) to see if the vehicle they drive is one of those under recall. NHTSA has its own VIN lookup website, but as of this report, that function was unavailable due to "intermittent network issues," according to a posting on the site.The recall reminder is "especially" urgent for vehicle owners in warm climates like the southern U.S., Hawaii and American island territories. Toyota, a maker of some of the recalled vehicles, said on its website Monday said the "influence of high absolute humidity" in the airbag malfunctions is under investigation.Earlier this month Florida woman Hien Tran was killed in a mysterious auto accident that police initially treated like a homicide due to the apparent stab wounds on her neck. Later, however, investigators determined her fatal wounds were "consistent with… exploding airbags," according to The Orlando Sentinel. If confirmed, auto safety experts say Tran's death would be the fourth linked to the dangerous defect.NHTSA opened an investigation into the issue back in June, at which time airbag supplier Takata published a statement on its website saying the company "is committed to the highest standards of safety for our customers – and their customers.""For the past several months, we have been consistently cooperating with NHTSA, and we will continue to do so during the defect investigation that the agency recently opened, but we also stand by the quality of our products," says the note, which was reposted on Takata's website earlier this week. "Takata is committed to ensuring the safety and functionality of its airbag inflators, and we strive to avoid any malfunction."

Guardrail Manufacturer to Halt Device Sales Amid Safety Concerns

Guardrail Manufacturer to Halt Device Sales Amid Safety Concerns

zebra3/iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Trinity Industries is halting sales of its controversial ET-Plus guardrail system, a device meant to protect motorists across the country that instead has been blamed by accident victims for dozens of injuries and deaths.The move came late Friday in response to a request by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to conduct crash tests on the device or face suspension of its eligibility for sale. Earlier this week Trinity lost a civil trial in Texas in which the jury found the company had defrauded the government by misrepresenting changes made to the guardrail nearly a decade ago.“In light of FHWA’s request, the right thing to do is to stop shipping the product until the additional testing has been completed,” Gregg Mitchell, President of Trinity Highway Products, wrote in a press release. "We have confidence in the ET-Plus System as designed and crash tested by Texas A&M Transportation Institute. It has met all tests previously requested by FHWA. We take the safety of the products we manufacture very seriously."The company says it will work with the FHWA on further crash testing and will not ship any more ET-Plus units until testing is completed.The announcement came at the end of a week that saw more states suspend the installation of the popular end terminal pending further investigation, a demand by the FHWA to further crash test the ET-Plus, and a mammoth jury verdict in the federal whistleblower case in Marshall, Texas. In that case, Trinity was found to have defrauded the federal government and has been ordered to pay $175 million.At the center of the case were modifications made by Trinity Industries in 2005 to the design of guardrail end terminals used alongside many roads from coast to coast, and the company’s failure at the time to disclose all the changes to the federal government or any state transportation departments.The modified guardrail, called the ET-Plus, was the subject of an ABC News 20/20 investigation in September that looked into allegations from crash victims that the modified guardrail can malfunction when struck from the front by their vehicles’. Rather than ribboning out and absorbing the impact as designed, the guardrails “locked up” and speared straight through the cars, severing the motorists’ limbs in some cases.The whistleblower in the case against Trinity, a competitor of the company's who uncovered damning documents indicating the company made the changes to its guardrail end terminal to save money, told ABC News Saturday that he believes the company's decision to stop selling the ET-Plus is just one more step to a total recall of the product from all U.S. highways."We are getting closer to that product recall," said Josh Harman. "A product recall is something that just has to happen, because too many lives have already been lost."In addition to their promise to work with the government, Trinity has indicated it will appeal the Texas court's decision in the whistleblower case, saying the ruling "will not withstand legal scrutiny."

Federal Judge Issues Restraining Order Blocking Sports Betting in NJ

AndreyPopov/iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- A federal judge has issued a temporary restraining order preventing New Jersey racetracks and casinos from allowing sports gambling.Gov. Chris Christie had signed a law earlier this month repealing the state's bad on sports wagering, and one racetrack was expecting to start taking bets on National Football League games on Sunday. The judge issued the restraining order on Friday, however, after a request from the four major professional sports leagues and the National Collegiate Athletic Administration.The judge said that the leagues showed they would be irreparably harmed if sports gambling was allowed. New Jersey would have been just the second state in the nation -- after Nevada -- to allow sports betting.

Man Beats One in 9.7 Trillion Odds to Win Same Lottery Twice

Man Beats One in 9.7 Trillion Odds to Win Same Lottery Twice

Hemera/Thinkstock(NORWOOD, Mass.) -- A man accidentally won the same lottery twice for a payout of $546,000.

Kenneth J. Stokes, of Norwood, Mass., is a lottery season ticket holder, which automatically enters him into every drawing of a certain lottery with specific, pre-set numbers of his choosing.

Forgetting that his family had gifted him a season pass to the Massachusetts State Lottery Lucky for Life drawing with their lucky numbers, Stokes bought a second ticket with the exact same numbers on Monday.

Then, he got a fateful call from the lotto officials on Tuesday morning.

“The representative called the individual who was the owner of the season ticket and informed him of that and then he was obviously elated to find out that he had won on that ticket,” Massachusetts State Lottery director of communications Christian Teja told ABC News. “They hung up and he realized that he had purchased the same ticket on his own for that same drawing. During the phone call when they had spoken, the representative had mentioned there was another winner form Norwood. He called back and it all came together when he was like, ‘I’m that guy in Norwood.’”

Stokes brought in his winning tickets on Thursday morning to collect his prize. He had won $25,000 a year for up to 20 years, which equals a $500,000 maximum. Stokes opted for a one-time cash option payment, which brought the prize down to $390,000 pre-tax, or $273,000 after tax. For Stokes, however, his winnings were doubled to $546,000.

The odds of Stokes winning twice in one drawing are one in 9.7 trillion. He plans to use the winnings to pay for his son's college tuition and his daughter's remaining car payments, as well as take his family on a vacation.

“I saw him yesterday. He was certainly in a good mood with a big smile on his face, as you can imagine,” Teja said. “He’s still somewhat in disbelief but very appreciate of his good fortune.”

New Home Sales Up 0.2% in September

iStock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) -- The housing market continues to bounce back.

The Commerce Department reported on Friday that sales of new homes rose 0.2 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted rate of 467,000.David Crowe, chief economist at the National Association of Home Builders, said the numbers are actually better than they appear at first glance."August was really high when it was reported in August and that's since been adjusted down, so now we have for the September number, we have the highest number since July 2008," he told ABC News Radio.Crowe said the market is getting healthier -- albeit at a slow pace."We're still at a very good number. It still indicates that we're moving forward in new home sales, although admittedly in a relatively slow pace," he noted.He said several factors are keeping some potential buyers away."It's a whole variety of things. Certainly, mortgage qualification is a big part of it. It's particularly true for younger, first time home buyers who maybe have a ding on their credit, don't have as much down payment," Crowe explained.

Fire Sale: Why Amazon’s Much-Hyped Phone Flopped

Fire Sale: Why Amazon’s Much-Hyped Phone Flopped

Amazon(NEW YORK) -- Amazon's much-hyped Fire phone didn't even create a spark in the smartphone market. Four months after its debut, the device, which featured what Amazon called "breakthrough" technology, is now selling on Amazon for 99 cents with a contract -- placing it at about the same price point as a fast food hamburger.Where Amazon went wrong was creating a device geared toward drawing in new Amazon shoppers, according to Patrick Moorhead, principal technology analyst at Moor Insights and Strategy. He said the smart phone and Amazon were a classic case of a "brand mismatch.""I think that Amazon was more interested in monetizing its buyers than actually delivering a compelling experience," Moorhead told ABC News.The Fire phone is equipped with a feature that allows users to identify almost any product -- from a book to a game or a container of kosher salt. It then directs users to Amazon to make purchases.The 3-D display, ideal for game play, was touted by Amazon as another breakthrough feature of the phone. From Moorhead's perspective, it's one place the company had a chance to shine but executed the technology entirely the wrong way."I could imagine on a 10-inch tablet playing some really cool 3-D games, but their display was too small," he said. "It was the wrong platform."Reviews of the Fire phone, which averages about 2-stars on Amazon, range from "extremely sad and dissatisfied" and "I wanted to love you" to "five stars."
