Teacher probe over porn site

A CALIFORNIA teacher accused of maintaining a pornographic website from her school laptop has been suspended.

Lincoln High School teacher Heidi Kaeslin is on paid leave while it is decided whether she violated its code of ethics.

A computer expert will now study the contents of the laptop. The investigation also involves former police officer Richard Fields, who said he had acquired domain names to develop into porn websites.

Mr Fields says Kaeslin's involvement was limited, and he eventually abandoned the venture. Kaeslin and her attorney declined to comment.



US army tests 'Hyper' missile

The US army has conducted its first flight test of a new weapon capable of travelling five times the speed of sound.

The army launched the Advanced Hypersonic Weapon yesterday from its Pacific Missile Range Facility on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. The weapon reached Kwajalein Atoll -- some 2,300 miles away -- in less than half an hour. The missile would let the US strike targets anywhere in the world with conventional weapons within an hour.
