The Navy has confirmed the wreckage of a sunken vessel found last year off the Aleutians Islands is that of the USS Grunion, which disappeared during World War II.

Underwater video footage and pictures captured by an expedition hired by sons of the commanding officer, Lt. Cmdr. Mannert L. Abele, allowed the Navy to confirm the discovery, Rear Adm. Douglas McAneny said Thursday in a news release.

McAneny said the Navy was very grateful to the Abele family.

“We hope this announcement will help to give closure to the families of the 70 crewmen of Grunion,” he said.

The Grunion was last heard from July 30, 1942. The submarine reported heavy anti-submarine activity at the entrance to Kiska, and that it had 10 torpedoes remaining forward. On the same day, the Grunion was directed to return to Dutch Harbor Naval Operating Base. The submarine was reported lost Aug. 16, 194

Steve Jobs Heart Attack

Steve Jobs Heart Attack
Apple has denied a rumor posted on CNN’s iReport page that Steve Jobs suffered a heart attack Friday morning.

The unsubstantiated rumor, posted on the “citizen journalism” section of CNN called iReport, caused a sharp drop in Apple‘s stock price around 7 a.m. PDT before company representatives were able to deny the charge. Blogs such as Silicon Alley Insider initially published the rumor as written on CNN with the 21st century fig leaf–a question mark at the end of the headline–but updated its story after hearing from Apple representatives. CNN has since removed the post in question.

Poll: Joe Biden wins debate, Palin exceeds expectations
A national poll of people who watched the vice presidential debate suggests that Democratic Sen. Joe Biden won but also hints that Republican Gov. Sarah Palin exceeded expectations.

The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey is not a measurement of the views of all Americans, since only people who watched the debate were questioned.

Joe Biden

Fifty-one percent of those polled thought Biden did the best job in Thursday night’s debate, while 36 percent thought Palin did the best job.

But respondents said the folksy Palin was more likable, scoring 54 percent to Biden‘s 36 percent.

Sen. Joe Biden gave a knowledgeable but restrained performance in Thursday night’s Debate, while Gov. Sarah Palin sought to show that her accomplishments as governor and mayor prove she is qualified to be vice president.

Biden slammed John McCain, saying that “he has been no maverick on the issues that matter to people lives,” but his only challenge to Palin was asking her to articulate a policy on the Iraq war.

Palin pushed her “track record of reform” and said she and McCain are a ” team of mavericks.”

“We’re known for putting partisan politics aside to just get the job done,” she said.

Sarah Palin tried to paint Barack Obama as “dangerous” for being open to meeting with rogue leaders without preconditions.

“An issue like that taken up by a presidential candidate goes beyond naivete and goes beyond poor judgment,” Palin said.
