    New York Inmates Defeat Harvard Debate Team

    In a debate between Harvard College students and those from any other college, some might guess that the students would win. And if the other side was a group of inmates at a maximum-security prison? Maybe even more so. That would be a mistake. Inmates from the Eastern New York Correctional Facility defeated the prestigious Harvard debate team in mid-September as part of the Bard Prison Initiative, a program run by Bard College to provide college education to qualifying prisoners, […]

    It’s Time to Get Your Flu Shot

    Now is the time to get your flu shot — and this vaccine is expected to be more effective than last season’s. Flu season is that time of year when more of your co-workers call in sick and more of your children stay home from school; it starts in October and typically runs through May. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention doesn’t generally start to keep a running count of the new season’s cases until the end of the […]

    South Carolina Flooding: Dams Breached, More Trouble Ahead

    The rain may have stopped, but South Carolina is grappling with a host of new concerns: Dam breaks. Billions of dollars in damage. And rivers that still haven’t crested yet. “God smiled on South Carolina because the sun is out,” Gov. Nikki Haley told reporters Tuesday afternoon. “That is a good sign, but I will tell you that for us, we still have to be cautious. The next 36 to 48 hours are going to be a time that we […]

    Here Comes McDonald’s All-Day Breakfast

    NEW YORK ¬†— The new CEO of McDonald’s is making big changes to try to boost the chain’s stagnant sales. His boldest move yet starts Tuesday: all-day breakfast. It’s harder than it sounds. McDonald’s started testing all-day breakfast in a few places in March. To go nationwide, more than 14,300 restaurants in the U.S. needed to install separate griddles and train staff on how to handle breakfast orders simultaneously with lunch and dinner. The roll out is further complicated by […]

    Fired Up Hillary Clinton Slams Benghazi Committee

    HOLLIS, New Hampshire¬†— Hillary Clinton made a passionate attack against Republicans on Monday, slamming the House Select Committee on Benghazi as “nothing but a partisan exercise,” and saying if Democrats were doing something similar to Republicans, she would have shut it down. “I would have never done that and if I were president and there were Republicans or Democrats thinking about that, I would have shut it down,” she told NBC’s “Today.” When asked by NBC’s Savannah Guthrie if she […]

    ‘1,000-year’ Rain Floods South Carolina, and It’s Not Over Yet

    This is the kind of deluge that might happen only once every 1,000 years. South Carolina is grappling with historic flooding that has led to several deaths, shut down interstates and sent search crews scrambling to rescue those trapped by rising waters. “This is an incident we’ve never dealt with before,” Gov. Nikki Haley said. The hardest-hit swath of South Carolina stretches from the capital city of Columbia, right in the middle of the state, all the way to the […]

    You’re Paying Record ATM Fees

    NEW YORK — You better think twice before using that out-of-network ATM. The average fee to withdraw money from an ATM that is not affiliated with your bank has hit a record $4.52, according to an annual survey from Bankrate. That charge is up 21% over the past five years as banks look for new revenue in the wake of stricter regulations that followed the financial crisis. The good news is that fewer people are getting hit with ATM fees, […]

    War in Syria: Six Graphics that Explain the Latest on the Ground

    The war in Syria just got a little bit more complicated. As if the airspace over the war-torn country wasn’t already crowded enough, fighter jets announced Russia’s arrival on the ever-growing list of nations who have bombed Syria when it launched airstrikes on rebel targets on Wednesday. A coalition of countries led by the U.S. have been bombing ISIS targets on a near-daily basis since last September, in the hopes of rooting out the terror group from its strongholds in […]

    The Martian’ Opening Rockets Near October Box Office Record

    NEW YORK, New York — “The Martian” blasted off to near record numbers this weekend with an estimated box office opening of $55 million in the U.S. The Matt Damon-led space thriller is just short of another film about astronauts lost in space, “Gravity,” which holds the record for biggest October opening with a $55.7 million debut in 2013. When final box office numbers come in on Monday, however, there’s a chance that 20th Century Fox’s “Martian” could take the […]
