Here are just a few things in Chad’s Pile that you will hear on Lubbock’s First News this morning. Give Chad your feedback on the steaming topics.

1. Cain denies sexual harassment accusations

It's the story that won't go away. On Tuesday, Herman Cain held a press conference and denied all the accusations that had been thrown his way. Cain said in his speech that he doesn't even know who Sharon Bialek is. Bialek held a press conference yesterday claiming that Cain had harassed her at one point in the 90's. However, if you really listen to what she says, she isn't really claiming sexual harassment. She is actually claiming sexual assault. She didn't work for Cain when the alleged incident happened and by actually trying to force her to do something sexual seems like to me, a bit more than harassment.

Cain also laid the blame on the Democrats.

“The Democrat machine in America has brought forth a troubled woman to make false accusations, statements, many of which exceed common sense and they certainly exceed the standards of decency in America.”

So what do you think about all of this? Personally, until someone comes forward with evidence I will believe Herman Cain.

2. EAS Alert (link)

DON'T PANIC. That's the advice from FEMA as today brings the very first National EAS Alert test. TV and Radio will both be interrupted around 1pm, and don't be mad at KFYO. This is a national deal. Everyone has to go through it. So why are we doing this?

FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate and FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski wrote: 'The various disasters our country has faced this year underscore the need for effective and well-tested emergency alert and warning systems that could be used in a time of real emergency, at a moment’s notice.

'The purpose of the test is to allow FEMA and the FCC to assess how well the Emergency Alert System would perform its primary function: alerting the public about a national emergency.'

The test is conducted to help identify any positive changes that could be made as FEMA, the FCC and other partners continue working to build 'a modernised and fully accessible Emergency Alert System', according to a press release issued by the organisations.

Short answer. Because the FCC said so.

3. Iran threatens (link)

Israel wants to bomb Iran, which I am fine with but of course that means Iran is again talking about wiping Israel off the map.

"Israel is not big enough to launch a military strike on Iran, but if it takes such a foolish decision, the Iranian military will fight with the Zionist soldiers in Tel Aviv streets... and will force them out of the Palestinian soil," Seyed Hossein Naqavi said.

Naqavi also warned, should Tehran's nuclear program be attacked, the battlefield won't be in Iran, but "the entirety of Europe and the US."

"Iranian forces will fight with the enemies with maximum might and power all throughout the European and US soil, if Iran comes under attack," he reiterated
