    What to Expect in Obama’s Speech Saturday Night

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Expect some swagger from President Barack Obama at Washington’s big prom Saturday night. Dark humor in troubled political times has usually been on the menu for Obama at the annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner. But this year there’s a lighter mood in the West Wing. Obama heads into his penultimate bill-topping role at the glitzy gala on an upswing, despite GOP refrains that his foreign policy is a disaster and he’s guilty of an executive branch […]

    Poll: Most Want Cuba off Terror List

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Only a quarter of Americans say they see Cuba as a serious threat to the United States, and most approve of the Obama administration’s decision to remove Cuba from the government’s list of state sponsors of terror. A new CNN/ORC poll finds 27% describe Cuba as a very or moderately serious threat to the U.S., including just 6% who call it a “very serious” threat. That’s well below the share who rate ISIS (68%), Iran (39%), North […]

    Nepal Earthquake: ‘People are Panicked, Running Down to Street’

    Panic. Tears. Fear. All those feelings and more permeated cities, villages and camps around Nepal on Saturday, after a massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck around midday. Hours later, after a wave of relentless aftershocks, many people still were too scared to go back inside any buildings. Others crowded around rubble, including men and women racing to rescue those trapped. And then are the hundreds already confirmed dead, not to mention the hundreds more who suffered injuries.

Afterwards, historic buildings in Kathmandu lay in rubble. The injured wound up being treated outside hospitals in chaotic scenes.

A barista in a San Francisco Starbucks said they were closed because of the computer problem. “Yes it is true,” Starbucks […]

    Fifteen Buffalo Shot After a Day of Chase in Upstate New York

    ALBANY COUNTY, New York — Fifteen buffalo were shot and killed on Friday after a day on the loose in upstate New York. The chase, which took farmers and police officers from five jurisdictions through forests and over the Hudson River, ended with “snipers” from the animals’ farm gunning down the buffalo from the side of the road, according to Lt. Thomas Heffernan of the Bethlehem Police Department. “It was turning into the wild, wild, West,” Albany County Sheriff Craig […]

    Magma Expanse Under Yellowstone Supervolcano Larger Than Thought

    YELLOWSTONE PARK, Wyoming – As tourists stroll between Yellowstone’s 300 active geysers, taking selfies in front of thousands of bubbling, boiling mud pots and hissing steam vents, they are treading on one of the planet’s greatest time bombs. The park is a supervolcano so enormous, it has puzzled geophysicists for decades, but now a research group, using seismic technology to scan its depths, have made a bombshell discovery. Yellowstone’s magma reserves are many magnitudes greater than previously thought, say scientists […]

    Elder President Bush’s Home Alarm Down for 13 Months

    President George H.W. Bush’s Houston home was not protected by a working alarm system for at least 13 months, according to an investigation conducted by the Department of Homeland Security. Bush’s home was protected by a Secret Service detail that put one agent in a “roving post” after discovering the alarm failure, but it’s unclear how quickly that measure was put in place after the alarm system broke down. “The protectees may have occupied the residence for a period of […]
