ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - A Disneyland employee accused of being responsible for explosions of two dry-ice bombs at the theme park has pleaded not guilty to felony possession of a destructive device in a public place.
Twenty-two-year-old Christian Barnes entered the plea Thursday in Orange County Superior Court. District attorney spokeswoman Farrah Emami says bail was set at $500,000.
Prosecutors say one water bottle containing dry ice exploded in his outdoor vending cart and the other bottle exploded in a trash bag that a custodian had removed from a trash can.
Barnes' father has said his son was just being silly and did not realize the severity of what might occur.
NEW YORK (AP) - While Buzz Aldrin enjoys movies about space, he doesn't always think the filmmakers get it right.
A day after attending the New York premiere of the post-apocalyptic thriller "After Earth," he says the film was a great family drama, but the space scenes were not realistic.
His main point of contention: "There was a lot of noise. ... You don't get that much noise."
Aldrin, who followed Neil Armstrong onto the surface of the moon during the historic Apollo 11 landing in 1969, says that "noise doesn't propagate in a vacuum. We talked over headsets."
The 83-year old astronaut was the guest of honor at a party for a new camera from Hasselblad. The Swedish company supplied the camera used to take pictures of the lunar landing.
NEW YORK (AP) - Mariah Carey says she isn't returning to "American Idol."
The pop star's publicity firm, PMK BNC, tweeted Thursday that Carey isn't returning to the Fox series and is planning a world tour because of the success of her new single, "Beautiful."
Carey became a new judge on "Idol" last year along with Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj. She and Minaj bickered on the show, creating a feud that was uncomfortable for both viewers and contestants.
Fox said in a statement that the network is "extremely fortunate that (Carey) was able to bring her wisdom and experience" to the show.
Randy Jackson announced that he was also leaving the show.
Carey's new single, a Top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, features Miguel.
