A Canadian man who parachuted from a flying lawn chair powered by helium balloons was facing police charges on Monday. Daniel Booria of Calgary was charged with mischief after he tied more than 100 helium-filled balloons to a lawn chair on Sunday evening, strapped a parachute on his back and set sail over the city in a publicity stunt intended to advertise a cleaning-products company. The 26-year-old was intending to steer the improvised aerial device over the Calgary Stampede, the city's annual rodeo and festival that attracts over a million visitors a year, with an eye to parachuting onto the grounds.

Pope Francis waves from a popemobile as he greets a crowd of faithful in Quito, EcuadorA Bolivian avant-garde restaurant hopes this week to serve a well-known non-paying customer and receive a holy seal of approval for its new creation: a quinoa-based communion wafer. Chefs at the restaurant, Gustu, in La Paz expect Pope Francis to receive the wafer during his visit to the Andean country later this week, the second leg in the Argentine pontiff's three-nation "homecoming" tour of South America. The restaurant's chefs said the wafers have been delivered to the government to give to the pope.


A man convicted of having sex on a public beach in Florida in front of a child was sentenced on Monday to 2-1/2 years in prison, a state prosecutor said. Jose Caballero, 40, was arrested in Bradenton Beach in west central Florida last July after other beachgoers complained that he was fondling and starting to have sexual intercourse with a woman on the beach in the middle of the afternoon. When her mother asked him to stop, Caballero responded confrontationally, which factored into the sentence requested, said Assistant State Attorney Anthony Dafonseca.
