Local8now reports that at 11:28 a.m. Thursday Bruce Cantrell and Jessica Fain broke the world record for living under water, which was 69 days and 19 minutes. So every minute more theyre below surface means another world record. The two biology professors went underwater on October 3rd, living in Jules' Undersea lodge near Key West, Florida. There they held classes via Skype with students, showing them the wonders of the ocean, and even inviting some big name guests like astronout Buzz Aldrin. Cantrell says he looks forward to getting a haircut after two and a half months. Fain says she misses her dog is going to give him a big hug when she gets home.

WVLT/local8now Thursday December 11, 2014

Vanessa Coleman is the only woman convicted of helping rape, torture, and murder Channon Christian and Chris Newsom in 2007. She got 35 years in jail and was up for parole. Local8now reports that request was denied Thursday, and she won't have a chance in front of the parole board until December 2020. In her closing statement, Coleman apologized to both Channon Christian and Chris Newsom's families today in court, saying, "I'd like to say I apologize for your losses. If I could have changed things, I would have changed things. But it was not under my control." "I made a mistake hanging out with the wrong people," she added. Gary Christian told reporters that both families are already talking with senators, asking to petition legislators to change Tennessee law about early release for people convicted of crimes.
