Frank Gore was unleashed against the sub-par St. Louis Rams, running for 153 yards and a touchdown, his first of the season. After the game, Gore was pumped. "That's smashmouth football," Gore said. "That's what we do." Colin Kaepernick, who also shook his mini-sophomore slump, said the 49ers need to get Gore the ball more often. The 49ers beat the Rams 35-11.

DID YOU REALIZE?

 

A UN study says there's a 95 percent chance global warming was caused by human beings.

It states baldly that, since the 1950s, many of the observed changes in the climate system are "unprecedented over decades to millennia".

Each of the last three decades has been successively warmer at the Earth's surface, and warmer than any period since 1850, and probably warmer than any time in the past 1,400 years.

"Our assessment of the science finds that the atmosphere and ocean have warmed, the amount of snow and ice has diminished, the global mean sea level has risen and that concentrations of greenhouse gases have increased," said Qin Dahe, co-chair of IPCC working group one, who produced the report.

Speaking at a news conference in the Swedish capital, Prof Thomas Stocker, another co-chair, said that climate change "challenges the two primary resources of humans and ecosystems, land and water. In short, it threatens our planet, our only home".

Since 1950, the report's authors say, humanity is clearly responsible for more than half of the observed increase in temperatures.

The FBI has been using drones across the United States since 2006 and spent approximately $3.7 million to do so. Don't you feel so much safer? Thrifty, too. 

The government has been strongly urged to come up with more stringent guidelines for domestic drone usage, as right now they are basically winging it.
