• 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...

  • What's next for Brady, Patriots after 'Deflategate' report

    Tom Brady smiled away the Tuck Rule on the way to his first Super Bowl victory, flashing that dimple-chinned grin that said, ''I had it all the time.'' The New England Patriots' illegal videotaping. ''What I see is that he goes from being 'Tom Perfect' to 'Tom Not-So-Perfect' in some peoples' eyes,'' Marc Ganis, president of sports business consulting firm SportsCorp, said Wednesday after the release of the NFL's report on the scandal that came to be known as ''Deflategate.'' In a 243-page report, NFL investigator Ted Wells found that Patriots employees violated the league rules covering game balls, and that Brady was ''at least generally aware'' of the plans to doctor the footballs to his liking. The Patriots did not respond to a request for a comment from Brady or coach Bill Belichick, who was exonerated in the report.

  • 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).

  • 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.

  • Tesla’s game-changing 7kWh home battery has a significant flaw

    Tesla recently unveiled its Powerwall battery system that aims to change the way we use and store energy in our homes. However, Bloomberg is reporting that the 7kWh Powerwall doesn’t yet work well with rooftop solar power sources, which could be a major issue for early adopters hoping to use it as a way to store energy generated by rooftop solar panels. In fact, Bloomberg says that even SolarCity — the solar power supplier that’s chaired by Tesla CEO Elon Musk — won’t be supporting the 7kWh version of the Powerwall when it launches.
