• Japan Has The Scariest-Looking Bridge Ever

    We've seen truly terrifying bridges before, but nothing quite as scary-looking as the Eshima Ohashi Bridge in Japan. The bridge, which connects the cities of Matsue and Sakaiminato, appears to go straight into the sky and suddenly drop off. Built high so that fishing boats can pass underneath, the structure fortunately isn't quite as steep as...

  • 10 Public Universities with the Worst Graduation Rates

    As more students choose public universities over private in order to afford tuition costs, finding the best state college or university depends on a few key statistics.  One of the most important—the graduation rate. The six-year completion rate for first-time, full-time students who started their four-year degree in the fall of 2008 was 55 percent, according to a study by the National Student Clearinghouse released in February. The rate has remained more or less stable in the past few years and is on average similar for private universities as it is for public universities, which are funded in part with our tax dollars. There are great discrepancies within the graduation rate at four-year public universities, just as there are among the different states (Delaware has a 73.4 percent graduation, Alaska has a 30 percent graduation rate).

  • Oregon teacher arrested for allegedly burning pupils with Tesla coil

    By Courtney Sherwood PORTLAND, Ore. (Reuters) - An Oregon science teacher accused of using lab equipment to burn messages into the arms of at least eight teenage students was arrested and booked on two counts of criminal mistreatment, police said on Wednesday. Samuel Dufner, 37, is alleged by students to have used a Tesla coil, a device that produces sparks and is often used to illustrate electrical principles, to burn "I heart Mom" into the arms of 15-year-olds in one of his classes, said Salem Police Lieutenant Steve Burr. A parent reported the incident to South Salem High School, located in the state capital, Salem, about 50 miles south of Portland, and school officials alerted police late on Monday. "I had to look up Tesla coil on Wikipedia this morning." The device was being used in several classes last week to ignite gases that would propel a rocket for a science demonstration, and police said it was not clear if students in other classes may also have been burned by Dufner.

  • 10 most valuable soccer teams of 2015 (10 photos)

    May 6 (Reuters) - European champions Real Madrid are the world's most valuable soccer club for a third straight year, according to a Forbes poll released on Wednesday that showed the average value of the top 20 teams rose 11 percent over last year. The Spanish club's value fell five percent to $3.26 billion but their $746 million in revenue, the highest of any sports team in the world, was enough to keep them top of the list, Forbes said in a statement. Barcelona ($3.16 billion), Manchester United ($3.10 billion), German champions Bayern Munich ($2.35 billion) and Manchester City ($1.35 billion) rounded out the top five. Rising television and shirt sponsorship revenue helped drive the average value of the top 20 clubs to $1.16 billion, a staggering 84 percent jump from five years ago. Eight of the top 20 teams are from the English Premier League, which Forbes credited to both a rise in the British pound relative to the euro and U.S. dollar and a lucrative new domestic TV deal starting from the 2016-17 season. Serie A champions Juventus ($837 million), AC Milan ($775 million), Inter Milan ($439 million) and Napoli ($353 million) are the only Italian teams to crack the top 20 but none were higher than ninth place. Forbes said the once-great Serie A brand has been undermined over the past decade by match-fixing scandals, antiquated stadiums, rising debts and a decline in talent on the pitch.

    A new photo captured by NASA's Mars rover Opportunity shows a rocky spire in a shallow crater on the Red Planet. The mosaic, which combines images taken by Opportunity's panoramic camera on March 29 and March 30, depicts a shallow Mars crater called Spirit of St. Louis. The crater is "about 110 feet (34 meters) long and about 80 feet (24 meters) wide, with a floor slightly darker than surrounding terrain," NASA officials wrote April 30 in a description of the image. Spirit of St. Louis lies along the western rim of a much larger crater called Endeavour, which Opportunity has been exploring since August 2011.

  • India moves to settle 1974 border dispute with Bangladesh

    India took a step towards ratifying a 41-year-old border dispute with Bangladesh Wednesday that would see thousands of people living in "enclaves" being allowed to choose their nationality. They have survived both the partition of the sub-continent after British rule ended in 1947 and Bangladesh's 1971 war of independence from Pakistan. On Wednesday, the upper house of India's parliament passed a bill to exchange the enclaves, in a step towards ratifying a land boundary agreement signed between India and Bangladesh in 1974. The earlier we implement, sooner we reap the benefits," she was quoted as saying by the Press Trust of India news agency.

I am — we are — complete.
