A few years ago, a Southern California pastor confided in Spybase.com owner Jean Pierre Demelo that he suspected the church accountant of theft.

Two weeks after the pastor bought a surveillance camera hidden inside a clock from the store, he asked Demelo to watch the footage.

The video captured the accountant taking money out of an envelope and pocketing it, Demelo said.

New Scrambler's retro look belies a host of modern improvements


TRIUMPH SCRAMBLER
TRIUMPH SCRAMBLER
Because Harley-Davidson's Sportster is considered such a fabled model from motorcycling's past, it's difficult sometimes for people to remember the Sportster was originally a knock-off of the Triumph Bonneville.

Triumph models such as the Bonneville Scrambler and the Trophy were two-wheeling's icons in the 1950s and early '60s.

Toy giant Mattel needs engineers to keep on top of its game


TOY BOX TECHNOLOGY
TOY BOX TECHNOLOGY
The newly hired toy designer's fashion background prepared her to design the doll's clothes, but she needed to know her inside as well as out. More recently Kane inserted a motor in Barbie's back.

"I have noticed a shift to use more technology," she said. "Now more than ever have we tried to make Barbie come to life."

Mattel design teams include engineers, but designers such as Kane still must help figure out a toy's mechanics in addition to spawning ideas.

New technologies require unbelievable speeds, massive storage


BUILT FOR SPEED
BUILT FOR SPEED
If you asked most Americans in 1985 whether they had any use for a PC with a modem and a hard drive, you would have met with a lot of laughter and blank stares.

Ask them today whether they want a gigabit Internet connection, a terabyte of storage and a teraflop processor, and the responses would be the same.

Why would anyone need a gigabit connection to the Internet? That's 1,000 megabits per second. And most people who have high-speed Internet are pretty happy with the 1- to 10-megabit connection they already have.

Underage and overlooked


UNDERAGED AND OVERLOOKED
UNDERAGED AND OVERLOOKED
Maggie is a typical teen, on the go, combining school and a social life, trying to find her way. Her parents, Jean and Pete, are trying to find their way, too.

Like most parents, they didn't think for a minute that their daughter was the kind to experiment with alcohol or drugs. "There is alcoholism in our family line, so I've been talking about it to my kids for a very long time," Jean says.

Smoky-flavored chipotles are showing up everywhere


RED HOT CHILE PEPPER
RED HOT CHILE PEPPER
What a life the jalapeno has. It's put on a routine of smoking, lying out in the sun and getting sauced. And, after the reverse spa treatment, it turns into one of the trendiest items on the food scene - the chipotle chile.

These wrinkly, crinkly pods result when jalapenos are ripened to a deep red on the plant and then smoke-dried using a process that dates at least to the Aztecs. The pods are sold dried or canned in vinegary adobo sauce.

Work it: Update your professional wardrobe for fall


FASHION WEEK
FASHION WEEK
OK, shake off that sand and kick off the flip-flops. As summer winds down and long vacations come to an end, it's time to get down to business and back to work - and it's time to get your professional wardrobe back into shape. So instead of taking a sick day, take a fashion time-out and reassess your work clothes. Here are a few new ways to make you feel better about how you look and about how you work:

Update your suits. Many of us working women tend to find one suit and wear it to death. But if you're really creative, you'll find more ways to get that "suit" look by mixing and matching jackets, pants and skirts.

Take a look at your basic suit and see if there aren't ways to make it look fresh this fall. Jackets can provide a major style shift. If you're still wearing boxy and baggy jackets, then you'll look boxy and baggy.

A shot at ending cervical cancer?


CERVICAL CANCER
CERVICAL CANCER
It seems like such a simple solution: Eliminate a virus-caused cancer with a round of vaccinations.

However, sometimes simple answers just create more questions, especially when it comes to our health.

Such is the case with Gardasil, the new vaccine developed by Merck that reduces the incidence of cervical cancer and other diseases in females caused by certain types of genital human papillomavirus, or HPV.

'Friends with Money' is a new level of discomfort


FRIENDS WITH MONEY
FRIENDS WITH MONEY
When writer/director Nicole Holofcener was asked to explain her gentle little drama-comedy "Friends with Money" (Sony Classics, 4 stars), she said it was about asking the big questions:

"Does our life have meaning? Are we in the right place? Are we wearing the right shoes? Are we the people we want to be?"

Right shoes?

Bill of Rights expert: Use them or lose them


YOUR RIGHTS
YOUR RIGHTS
From time to time, political leaders have been known to go into rhetorical overdrive, waxing long and languorous on the wondrous essential freedoms and liberties in the United States. For instance, on the Fourth of July. But ask the average man or woman what these basic freedoms and liberties are, and you're likely to get a long pause. "Umm," said 19-year-old Maddie Bevitt of Roanoke, Ill., when asked to define civil liberties.

"I don't know what it means," she said at first. After a long, awkward silence, as she stood in a parking lot on Illinois Central College's East Peoria campus, she tried to dissect the question: What are civil liberties? "OK, civil," she started out. "Civil liberties." She paused again. "People's rights?" she asked. "I'm going to guess people's rights."

Decorating a teen room on the cheap


WALLPAPER RULES!
WALLPAPER RULES!
Q: I'm beginning to think it's not possible to decorate for kids! My daughter is 11, going on 18, and wants to paint her room shocking pink and black. I'm the one in shock. I remember a column you once wrote about a woman whose son wanted an all-black room and you said "Give it to him." Should I just give in?

A: Ask not whether you agree with your daughter's taste; ask why she should not be able to express her own personality in her own room. Besides, she'll soon be on to something else - probably something much less "shocking."

Experts: population growth, impact on environment must be addressed


POPULATION GROWTH
POPULATION GROWTH
Look at the top-priority campaigns of the nation's big environmental groups and you'll find endangered animals, pollution and global warming.

What's largely missing are high-profile, domestic initiatives that tackle what many conservationists agree is a chief source of these and other challenges: U.S. population growth.

One way to get rid of insect pests may be to build a better bug


INSECT PESTS
INSECT PESTS
More than 80 percent of all known animal species in the world are insects. One million species have been named; there may be as many as 30 million species in all. Insects abound virtually everywhere, even in parts of Antarctica. In the United States, the average acre of land contains 400 pounds of insects, but just 14 pounds of people.

For the most part, we ignore these bugs. They go unseen and unnoticed until they become pests, sometimes serious pests. Billions of dollars in agricultural production worldwide are lost each year to various voracious aphids, mites, flies, beetles and worms. At the same time, millions of people die annually from insect-borne diseases. Malaria alone accounts for 300 million to 500 million clinical cases each year, with 1.5 million to 2.7 million proving fatal.

Gain ground on a soaring space


FILM STAR
FILM STAR
Q: I think the architect was high when he designed this new house of ours. The family room is two stories tall with French doors on three sides and odd-shaped windows punched way up on two of the walls, such as a big porthole on one and two triangles on the other. We bought the house, thinking the windows were neat, but now we're having a hard time living with the sunlight and glare that comes in the room. We put sheers on the French doors, which work just fine. What kind of curtains should we use that won't look silly so high on the wall?

A: "High," indeed. But today's fad for soaring spaces is not altogether the builder's fault. Maybe we were just reacting to the visual cramping of the 20th century, when room sizes shrank and ceilings dropped to about 8 feet, all in the name of "efficiency."

FedEx Kinko's Signs and Graphics Center celebrates its Grand Opening


FedEx Kinko's Signs and Graphics Center
We would like to invite www.ParamusPost.com to our Grand Opening on Wednesday, 8/23/06 at 10 AM was the request we received. Eager to cover news in Paramus, we agreed! However, it is a little confusing. After locating the 315 Rte 17 S location near Einstein Moomjy, there were two doors to enter. Naturally I picked the wrong one!

Not seeing too many people on the one to the right, I opted to take the doors on the left. Wrong choice! The new center opening was on the right.
