Mark Basseley Youssef, the filmmaker who wrote and produced the anti-Islam movie Innocence of Muslims that has been tied to the U.S. missionary attacks in Benghazi, was sentenced to one year in federal prison yesterday for violating several of his probation orders. Back in June 2011, Nakoula was released on probation after serving a 21-month sentence in federal prison on charges of bank fraud and he began working on the film, but in the recent wake of its controversy, Nakoula was arrested again in September on charges of using false names, using the Internet without prior approval and obtaining a fraudulent driver's license, all of which were in direct violation of his probation conditions.

Roll call is falling short over at the New York Aquarium. According to a statement released yesterday by the Wildlife Conservation Society, some of the aquarium's fish collection were lost as a result of flooding and power outage in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

Kyle Camp, a 10-year-old with Down syndrome, went missing Tuesday afternoon. Within hours, hundreds of friends and family had fanned out to find him.
When he didn't turn up, they feared the worst.
But 18 hours after he was last seen, Kyle was discovered safe and sound in a creek -- along with a mini expedition: His four puppies had "kept him warm overnight" in the woods until their barks gave up their location.
Kabang jumped in front of a motorcycle last year to save the lives of two little girls in the Philippines -- but she lost her snout in the process.
Despite the grave injury, Kabang showed no signs of suffering, so her owner decided not to put her down. Kabang soon learned how to eat with her paws.
Still, her wounds weren't quite healing properly.
Enter the Internet: This month, thanks to $20,000 in online donations, Kabang is undergoing reconstructive surgery at UC-Davis.
