    Small Bodies Found Inside Abandoned Storage Locker

    COLFAX, California — When Regina Zimmer bid $40 on an abandoned storage unit in Colfax, California, near Sacramento, all she did before the purchase was look at the unit from the outside and hope to find something valuable.

    Hacks and Security Breaches Against Government Skyrocketing

    WASHINGTON — The North Korean hack of Sony Pictures that unleashed proprietary information, leaked embarrassing emails and brought the multi-billion dollar company’s operations to its knees was unprecedented. But cyber security and intelligence experts warn that this is only the beginning. A CNN review of cyber attacks against federal agencies shows that the number of breaches into government systems is skyrocketing. “Espionage is happening at a rate we have never seen before,” said Denise Zheng, a deputy director at the […]

    Stephen Colbert Airs Final ‘Report’

    Goodbye, Stephen Colbert. We hardly knew you. In fact, that was the idea, wasn’t it? Colbert — the pugnacious, “nation”-inspiring champion — hosted his last “Colbert Report” on Comedy Central Thursday night. About six months from now, he will take a new role as host of CBS’ “Late Show.” It will be like Superman changing into Clark Kent — or, perhaps, into Kal-El. For the Colbert we’ve been watching bears only a tangential resemblance to the real thing. The real […]

    Army to Launch ‘Blimp’ that Detects Cruise Missiles

      The U.S. Army plans to launch two stationary “blimps” at 10,000-feet in the air next week to better protect the Washington, D.C. area from cruise missiles and other possible air attacks. It’s part of a three-year test by the North American Aerospace Defense Command of the so-called JLENS System, which is designed to work with already-existing air defense technology. The tethered large balloons, called aerostats, carry technology that will almost double the reach of current ground radar detection, officials […]

    Obama Looks to Cuba to Test an Old Theory

    WASHINGTON — Since the early days of his first presidential run, Barack Obama made a pledge — to talk directly with America’s enemies — that most other politicians found naive. The approach famously drew snickers from Republicans and Democrats alike, who derided it as irresponsible — a criticism that followed Obama into the White House. In the twilight of his administration, Obama’s Wednesday announcement on normalizing relations with Cuba represented his last best chance to turn this idea into a […]

    Jordan Axani planned to travel around the world with his girlfriend Elizabeth Gallagher, until they broke up. Now, he’ll embark on Sunday on the circumnavigation with Elizabeth Gallagher. No need for a double-take: The name may be the same, but the person answering to it isn’t. Axani had booked his-and-her airline tickets in his name — and his girlfriend’s, he said. So, after his ex went overboard, he had to find a new co-passenger with the same name, he said, […]

    The 2014 Tax Breaks You’ll be Able to Take

    Well, finally. Congress on Tuesday night extended dozens of expired “temporary” tax breaks for 2014. It took the Senate, by a 76 to 16 vote, until the week after Congress was supposed to adjourn to pass the bill, which the House had already approved. The bill will now be sent to President Obama, who is expected to sign it. The majority of tax breaks in the bill pertain to businesses, but a handful will affect individuals. Among those who will […]

    Obama, Castro Hail New US-Cuba Relationship

    WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama announced Wednesday plans to normalize diplomatic relations with Cuba and ease economic restrictions on the nation, a policy shift he called the end of an “outdated approach” to U.S.-Cuban relations that, “for decades, has failed to advance our interests.” Obama said the U.S. will move towards re-opening its embassy in the communist nation and allow some travel and trade that had been banned under a decades-long embargo instated during the Kennedy administration. “Through these changes […]
