tv Right This Minute KICU April 25, 2013 1:00pm-1:31pm PDT
hi, everybody, i am beth troutman. it is time for the best videos the web has to offer "right this minute." a motorcyclist is out for a joy ride until a sharp curve. >> catches this guy out. >> find out what he landed on that left him shaking his head. looks like a waterfall, but that's an avalanche. >> usually these are not seen. >> where the rare sight was finally caught on camera. a mama duck leads her babies through some mean streets. >> this little ducklings are keeping up. >> how their final destination is one sweet reward.
>> if you knew anything about kate upton. >> you would know as she is an equestrian. >> see what else she reveals in q & a. >> it is nice she has a hobby outside of being practically nude. >> it is called tail of the dragon. not a new sci-fi film. it is a road in north carolina in tennessee. u.s. 129 otherwise known. this road is extremely famous and favored by motorcycle enthusiasts and car fanatics because it packs 318 curves in just 11 miles. it is a lot of fun to ride. this guy is on a r-650, one of my favorite bikes and up there enjoying the trees and the curves and back and forth until one of these 318 curves catching this guy out and catching the peg. will you hear it.
>> oh. >> looks like it hurts. >> i see you reacting to something on the ground. >> that's not a belt. >> no. this is a snake. >> look at that. >> it is. >> yes, it is. the dragon got him but he got the serpent. >> poor little guy. >> what happened? what are the odds of that? >> the guy seems to be fine. of all the places for the poor snake to be in all of those woods, hit by a motorcycle. >> i feel bad for the snake. like what? that's how i go out? head on down to australia where you may think we're on the same red but we're not. the rider here is on the opposite side and so is this other motorcycle. the other rider is coming around the left-hander. he swings wide and as most motorcycle accidents like, this the person fixates on where they're going instead of through
the turn, so a classic mistake, the rider goes right into the cyclist. the rider goes right into the guy we're riding with and nearly a head on collision and clearly the guy's fault coming towards us. the guy on the red bike coming towards the camera seems to jump right up and doesn't appear to be injured. the guy on the ground says his foot is badly mangled but could have been a lot worse. you're looking at security camera footage outside of a home in louisville, kentucky. notice what you are seeing. it is like a guy in broad daylight just looking around the area and bends down and starts to pick something up. what he is picking up is actually a sewer grate. according to police people in this area are stealing the sewer grates and even mantle covers so they can sell them for scrap metal. these grates cost about $120 for taxpayers for the city and they
sell them for about $5. we're not talking about a lot of money. the guy who owns the home, his name is james guest and saw this guy in action and confronts him from the second story window. >> what are you doing with that? >> he is claiming he is a city worker and he is smarter than that. he is like your truck is not marked and you aren't a city employee. it is a big problem because this is incredibly dangerous for people in the neighborhood. it would be easy for a child to fall in the area without the grate. also with man hole covers even he himself has driven through his own neighborhood and his man hole cover was god and his car ended up in it and causing severe damage. >> i called every scrap metal place i could. >> the guy ended up getting away? >> he did end up getting away.
police are looking for this guy. a couple of avalanche videos. these come to us from the far eastern side of france near the border of italy. this one was set off on purpose. >> as you can see, there is a helicopter flying over, hovering, and at one point you see something happening on the right. they have dropped something in there to trigger this avalanche and as they do, seconds later it slowly begins to roll down the mountain. >> it is cool because we have seen videos of controlled avalanches before and haven't seen the explosion that leads to the avalanche. >> you think it would need to be something bigger and mightier and just looks like something, a little bit of elosive to setoow important. at this time of year snow is beginning to melt as temperatures get warmer and this can prevent that kind of thing. >> this area is between two towns and there is a road nearby and they're trying to keep it
clear and safe for drivers to get between the two towns. >> looks like the ocean crashing against rocks. doesn't look like an avalanche. >> this video is just a natural avalanche. this one was not triggered, and usually these are not seen, but someone was able to catch it on camera. >> like a waterfall. >> and this loosely packed snow, that time of year where they're more frequent and does look like a waterfall as opposed to snowfall. two spring duck videos and they are sweet. the first is a rescue and sent to us by "right this minute" viewer john pam. >> that time of year the little ducklings get themselves into trouble. >> yes. these guys were on a very busy street and john saw them and they were not only fighting traffic but apparently they were also being attacked by cats. >> what? >> here is a protective mom trying to save her ducklings,
and john saw that, decided to spring into action and try to help get the ducklings away. >> he did grab a bucket and put them in there and took them to a grassy area and led mom to the area and this is the moment he releases them and they are able to join back again with mama. >> i feel like this should be set to music like sweet music. ♪ the second video isn't really a rescue, but this guy in the u.k. decided to record this mom and her ducklings just taking a stroll down the street, and you are wondering where is she going so quickly? >> they're moving. >> yeah, they are. the ducklings are keeping up. >> the bar?
>> hungry? need fish and chips and then a beer. >> boathouse, nice. probably getting people to toss it down to you. ♪ a woman goes on a road rage binge starting at a cross walk and then -- >> almost hitting an officer that was going to check out the scene. >> ends up getting away, leading police on a chase. >> when they finally catch up with her, let's say it is a strange turn of emotion. take two popular sports and combine them. what do you get? >> the best game ever invented. >> the story behind the sport you probably never heard of.
the android device. >> click on win ipad and fill out the entry form. you have to be 18 or old to her enter. >> don't run out of time. get the video app and you can watch great videos anywhere and win an ipad mini. >> today is the last day to enter. good luck, everybody. sports fans, i got a mash up for you that you will love. i think it is totally awesome combining golf and soccer. some call it foot golf. some call it foot tee. >> like foot teeing off. >> sounds weird at first. watch this 18 holes, par for each hole. you're kicking the ball. the hole is obviously oversized to fit a soccer ball. guys are chipping, driving, stairways, bunkers, water hazards. >> why is it taking so long? >> there was a world cup of foot golf last year in hungary. some of the guys are former soccer players, guys like player of the year in certain countries
and some of them have golf roots. it is not strokes that they count up. it is kicks >> do you have a caddy carrying around like a big bag of shoes? which shoe should i put on? >> the guy has to go over a water hazard and this video is about a course opening in may in dublin, ireland, and apparently there are foot tee or foot golf courses in all sorts of places. >> dedicated to just this, not like every saturday -- >> i think there is a little bit of both. i think there are courses dedicated just to this and golf courses they turn into foot golf or foot tee courses. the guy from aly won world cup 2012. i think it was the first ever for this sport. >> what is the stand like? >> it is tool the mashup of the attire of these athletes. >> do you have a golf cart and beer? this is the perfect game. >> so cool. >> i think i know what we're doing this weekend. ask 1,000 people what they
think the best job in the world would be, 1,000 different answers. i think this could be the best job in the world. >> yeah. >> sebasten smith entered a contest to win the best job to be a water slide tester. >> what? >> yes. for first choice holidays they have different water parks all over the world. sebasten was one of 2,000 applicants. this is his application video where he describes his love of water. sebasten beat out 2,000 other applicants. he won the job. he will be traveling the world for six months. >> what? >> going to places like miorka, turkey, egypt, at least 20 different water parks going down the slides and rating them for this company. >> i have a rating system where my face alone will tell you everything you need to know. super souper fun, awesome, scary, relaxing, lame, painful.
>> also gets about 9,000 u.s. dollars for this six-month job and a week vacation on top of all of the hard work at the end of his world junior zi hope he is not scared of heights. >> good thing to put on the resume. this is a road rage incident caught on security cameras in a shopping center in australia. check out this car driving over this pedestrian crosswalk. you see an aelderly man walking with his shopping cart about to cross and the driver gets really upset and ends up scolding the older man that was about to cross the street and then later in the video we see the car again waiting for the man to get to his car. she chases the man and ends up ramming her car into his car. >> doesn't make sense. she has nothing to be mad about. this is a crosswalk at a grocery store where you are supposed to yield to people crossing. >> after she did that, she ended up getting away and not before
hitting an officer that was going to check out the scene. she ends up getting away, leading police on a chase. you won't believe what she says. >> this is really embarrassing. >> and she starts pleading with police. >> i don't usually do anything bad. >> it gets better. >> i am so embarrassed. >> she is hugging the guy? hugging the officer? >> yeah. she is looking for comfort and asking the police officer please give me a hug. she apparently was having a really bad week because she had been laid off from her job and she got arrested and is facing charges of dangerous driving and leaving the scene of an accident. this dude shows us how to move a swarm of bees. >> using a plastic cup to basically kind of scoop the bees off that branch. >> and no gloves. >> no gloves. >> see how he does this jitter free. got grass? >> it is an iphone case
but then why is he the one in the doghouse? don't blame him. instead, rely on the number one choice of vets for their pets, frontline plus. the killing force of frontline plus uses two ingredients. one to kill adult fleas and ticks, plus another to kill flea eggs and larvae, destroying the future generations of fleas. and it keeps fighting for a full 30 days. ask your vet about frontline plus. accept nothing less.
it is rob from honey love. if you haven't noticed yet it is swarm season. >> this is from the honey love youtube channel and they actually say you can in urban areas find honey bee swarms. rob mcfarland is capturing these bees so that he can harvest the honey. >> we need to get all of these bees into this box. if we can get the queen in there, all the rest of the worker bees that are flying around will follow her in there. >> he is using very basic tools.
watch this. he has a box and a sticknd no gloves. >> no gloves. >> yeah. >> there is bees all over me. i am not in any danger of being stung. they're not acting aggressively at all. that's to be expected with swarms. they're very docile. >> now he is using a plastic cup to basically kind of scoop the bees off of that branch. >> what they will do is startph. >> he says after you get them in the general right area you have to wait and they will find their way in and this becomes their new home. then they will start producing honey >> having bee keepers as neighbors is one of the best things you can ask for to help you deal with something very natural occurs, very common occurrence. >> over the last three years 1 in 3 honey bee colonies has died nationwide. we need our honey bees because
they pollinate nearly 80% of the world's plants including 90 different crops we consume. they have a website, honeylove.org and it is a non-profit with a mission to protect honey bees and educate new urban bee keepers. >> sweet work. wants to be a chicken. [ laughter ] >> because apparently her curves aren't are there is to kate upton, the guys at swim daily at "sports illustrated" did a q&a with her to find out what is on her bucket list. >> i want to go to antarctica with clothes on. >> i love the fact she wants to
go to antarctica. >> she has been, just not without clothes. she had to pose in a bikini. >> somewhere casual where we can talk and hang out and involves horse back riding. >> the cliche, horse back riding on a date? like that ever happens. >> if you knew anything about kate upton, you would know she is an equestrian and has a horse and two ponies. >> don't get angry. oddly enough, i think i would be just as interested in this video. >> these aren't the most hard hitting questions. >> you want her to talk about the political economy and the industrial society? >> i can think of more interesting questions than do you like animals. >> i am a huge animal lover. >> like, no, i hate them. >> what would you act like? >> only eat cookies, cakes or pie, which would you choose. >> the question, do you really care what the answers are? >> see, even you got sucked right back. >> it is hard not to look.
