• This photo of a dog with a mouthful of ladybugs is freaking out pet owners

    The photo that Kansas veterinarian Lindsay Mitchell posted to Facebook looked so unreal and disturbing that some who saw it went right to the hoax-busting website Snopes to verify it. But that didn’t stop the photo from being shared more than 53,000 times since it went up last week. Mitchell, of Hoisington, Kan., posted a graphic picture of a dog with a mouthful of Asian lady beetles. Ladybugs aren’t so cute when 30 to 40 of them are stuck to the roof of a dog’s mouth. “This is the second pup I have seen like this today. If your pet is drooling or foaming at the mouth look for these lady bugs. They cause ulcers on the tongue and mouth and have a very painful bite,” she wrote on the Hoisington

    "When I went home to speak at the opening of the International AIDS conference [in July], I stood in front of an audience of thousands and made a plea to end the deadly stigma and discrimination that puts the burden of AIDS on the world's most vulnerable people," Theron said. "I argued that we should focus on the ones that are hardest to reach, the poor, young people, women, girls, gay and transgender people—the people bearing the brunt of the epidemic. "It wasn't long after I gave this speech talking about how we couldn't forget the most vulnerable among us that I realized I had forgotten someone," she continued. "I had forgotten to mention sex workers, some of the most stigmatized people in

  • 2 reasons Friday's great GDP report kind of stinks

    Neil Dutta, an economist at Renaissance Macro, notes these are the “most volatile” components of the report, adding that taking out these elements yields annualized GDP growth of just 1.4%. A middling increase in personal consumption during the third quarter adds credence to the idea that Friday’s GDP number wasn’t a marked change in direction for the economy, but a reinforcement of the idea that the US is basically a 2% economy right now. Personal consumption rose at a rate of 2.1% in the third quarter, roughly in-line with the broader growth trend we’ve seen since the financial crisis but well below the 4.3% expansion we saw during the second quarter.

  • Chris Christie's epic collapse

    When Donald Trump made his strange trip to a Hindu anti-terrorism rally in Edison, New Jersey, Chris Christie — the governor who is heading Trump’s transition team — was noticeably absent. Garden State leaders could only wonder whether Christie was laying low because of the unpopular presidential nominee's hot-mic comments about women, or because of his own deepening problems stemming from the Bridgegate scandal. Such is the condition of Christie’s career. Once a GOP star, his fortunes have plummeted since the high point of his landslide re-election in 2013, and now look to be nearing rock-bottom as an aide’s trial leads to embarrassing revelations about his possible complicity in the notorious lane closures at the George Washington Bridge.

  • Donald Trump believes the United States can get $1 trillion in new roads — for free

    Inside two weeks before Election Day, Donald Trump has finally released a plan to pump $1 trillion of new infrastructure spending into the U.S. economy. Trump's economic advisers have embraced a modified version of a theory some liberal economists have been pushing for years: that at a time of very low interest rates, increased federal spending on roads and bridges would actually pay for itself. Trump would push Congress to authorize $137 billion in tax credits for construction companies looking to build new toll roads, toll bridges or any other sort of infrastructure project that has a revenue stream attached to it. The advisers behind the plan, Wilbur Ross and Peter Navarro, calculate that the tax credits would leverage $167 billion in investment by the companies that receive them, who would in turn borrow money on the private market to finance up to $1 trillion in total spending.

On our walk back to the campus bus stop, she broke down sobbing, saying that he had forced her to have sex with him. At the time, I had no way of comprehending that this was rape. I am pretty sure I reacted poorly. I was in complete shock. I do remember saying that we should go to the clinic and that we should tell someone. She didn’t want to.

  • Strong earthquakes hit central Italy (20 photos)

    Daylight revealed widespread damage in central Italy on Thursday after strong earthquakes overnight that caused panic and fear among residents just two months after a quake nearby killed hundreds. No one was killed this time, but dozens of people sustained minor injuries and about four others more serious ones, Italy’s Civil Protection Agency said. Many residents of Campi, a town of about 200, slept in their cars as aftershocks rocked the Umbria, Marche and Lazio regions throughout the night. The earthquake on Aug. 24 in the same area killed nearly 300 people and destroyed several towns. (Reuters) See more news-related photo galleries and follow us on Yahoo News Photo Tumblr .
