Meckler, 39, was originally charged with grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property, according to the complaint, but pleaded guilty to a single count of disorderly conduct in the criminal court in Manhattan on Monday, the district attorney's office said. She is expected to be sentenced to five days of community service, the New York Post reported.

Scientists remove encrustation on Confederate sub

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 08/13/2014 - 01:05

Conservator Liisa Nasanen uses tools to remove encrustation from the hull of the Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley at the Warren Lasch Conservation Center in North Charleston, S.C., on Tuesday, Aug. 12, 2014. After the submarine sat in a chemical bath for more than three months to help loosen the encrustation, scientists on Tuesday began the laborious job of removing the built-up sediment by hand. The work is expected to take between eight months and a year and scientists hope that when the hull is revealed, it will provide the final clues as to why the hand-cranked sub, the first in history to sink an enemy warship, sank off South Carolina in 1864. (AP Photo/Bruce Smith)NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Scientists have started the long job of removing the encrustation from the hull of Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley.
