    So Much for a Smooth Clinton Campaign

    Hillary Clinton’s biggest challenge to a smooth launch of her 2016 campaign is a familiar one: Herself. At the very least, the controversy over her exclusive use of personal — instead of official — email while Secretary of State threatens to further complicate her expected 2016 White House candidacy. The news is all the more challenging for Clinton after stinging criticism of foreign donations to her family’s philanthropic foundation and her comments about her personal wealth. But the email saga […]

Gregory walked to the witness stand, thanks to a prosthesis, and gave some of the day’s most emotional testimony. Afterward, she wrote a public letter to Tsarnaev, which she posted on her Facebook page:

    Watch Lion Use Mouth to Open Car Door at Safari Park

    Hey, nature, thanks for reminding us that you are not to be played with. Unless you are an adorable Australian quokka. We would play with them all day long. From battling water creatures to lions opening car doors, animals have taken center stage on social media. And this is not your typical animal kingdom. Check it out: According to Mashable, digital media producer Benjamin Savard was working on a video for the science department at Middlebury College in Vermont on […]

    Pit Bull Mix Found Shot, Tied to Rail Tracks

    TAMPA, Florida — Cabela’s not a cat, but the young pit bull mix apparently had a few lives to spare. Tampa police found her shot and bleeding, tied to a set of railroad tracks in the city’s Sulphur Springs neighborhood on Wednesday. Folks called after they heard someone fire a gun. Cabela was hit by three shots — two to the neck and one to the shoulder. Officers freed the pup from the tracks and rushed her to Tampa Bay […]

    Poll: Scott Walker, Jeb Bush Lead GOP Field

    Govs. Scott Walker and Jeb Bush are locked in a dead heat as the favorites for the Republican presidential nomination, according to a new poll. With 18% and 16%, respectively, Wisconsin’s Scott Walker and Bush, the former governor of Florida, lead the pack of prospective Republican presidential candidates according to a nationwide Quinnipiac poll released Thursday of Republican and Republican-leaning voters. That’s within the poll’s 4.2 percentage point margin-of-error for the Republican side. Behind the early favorites, New Jersey Gov. […]

    Laser Procedure Can Turn Brown Eyes Blue

      From the piercing blue eyes of Paul Newman to the steely gaze of Daniel Craig, blue eyes have always been a measure of attractiveness. But exactly why they make hearts throb and catapult actors and models to stardom is a point of conjecture. Theories range from evolutionary psychologists who say that blue-eyed women in Palaeolithic societies had a better chance of standing out in the crowd, others posit that pupil dilation — a signifier of attraction — is easier […]

    Principal Subject of One of the ‘Coolest Senior Pranks Ever’

    WITCHITA, Kansas – Think back to your high school’s senior prank. Maybe you and your pals slipped a pig into the building or greased all the door handles or turned all the chairs upside-down. So it’s no surprise that Wichita high school Principal Sherman Padgett was reluctant to play along last week when a student showed up and told him to stand in the hallway holding a bucket. “She didn’t say anything about why. She just said ‘hold the bucket,’ […]

    UK Twins Turn Heads: One is White, the Other Black

    GLOUCESTER, UK — Here’s a pair of twins no one will have trouble telling apart: One is white, and one is black. Thanks to a rare quirk of nature, Lucy is the alabaster-skinned redhead, and Maria has their part-Jamaican mother’s dark skin and hair. Images of the Aylmer sisters of Gloucester, United Kingdom, rocketed around the Internet this week when a British newspaper carried their story. “I can’t stop crying! This is all so amazing,” Lucy Aylmer posted on Facebook. […]

    Mystery Woman Found in Coffin at Richard III’s Grave Site

    First came the shocking discovery of a medieval English king’s burial site in a parking lot. Then came the unearthing of a mysterious coffin, near where the king was buried. Archaeologists theorized it contained the remains of a prominent man, possibly a knight or a Catholic Church official. After the coffin was opened, another shocker: The person inside was a woman, researchers said this week. Who was she? A wealthy aristocrat, church benefactor, beloved servant? Whoever she was, the woman […]

    Then There Were 12: Nebraska Ordered to End Same-Sex Marriage Ban

    What a difference a couple of years makes. A federal judge has struck down Nebraska’s ban on same-sex marriage, calling it an “unabashedly gender-specific infringement of the equal rights of its citizens.” U.S. District Judge Joseph Bataillon’s decision Monday means that same-sex marriage is now against the law in fewer than one in four states. Nebraska state officials immediately appealed the ruling to the 8th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals. Bataillon denied a state request to stay his decision. And […]

    Costco Teams with Citi and Visa

    Costco has reached an agreement with Citi for a new co-branded credit card program, shortly after dropping its similar deal with American Express. Costco says it will start accepting Visa rather than American Express at its U.S. stores on April 1, 2016. Currently, the wholesale club retailer has accepted only debit cards and Amex for purchases in its stores or at its gas stations, although it also accepts Visa and MasterCard for online purchases. Most retailers who accept Visa also […]
