• Huge, once-hated fish now seen as weapon against Asian carp

    It's a toothy giant that can grow longer than a horse and heavier than a refrigerator, a fearsome-looking prehistoric fish that plied U.S. waters from the Gulf of Mexico to Illinois until it disappeared from many states a half-century ago. Persecuted by anglers and deprived of places to spawn, the alligator gar — with a head that resembles an alligator and two rows of needlelike teeth — survived primarily in southern states in the tributaries of the Mississippi River and Gulf of Mexico after being declared extinct in several states farther north. To many, it was a freak, a "trash fish" that threatened sportfish, something to be exterminated.

  • Police: Girl, 14, slits teen's throat in hope of 1st kill

    HUDSON, Wis. –  A 14-year-old northwestern Wisconsin girl who told police she was a psychopath looking for her first kill is accused of cycling to the home of her brother's girlfriend, beating the girl and slitting her throat. The Eau Claire Leader-Telegram reports that the teenager, of New Richmond, is charged as an adult with attempted first-degree intentional homicide. She is in juvenile custody. A criminal complaint filed Thursday says police found the 15-year-old victim Wednesday morning on her bedroom floor bleeding heavily from the face and neck. The victim told police she was in bed when she was attacked and cut with shards from broken bowls. Police say the 14-year-old girl told investigators

  • How Hillary blew her big moment

    Well, Hillary Clinton took the stage after four days of Democratic triumph — the party staged what was even to these conservative eyes and ears the best, tightest, most interesting convention of our time — and pretty much stunk up the joint. Her speech was a Jell-O mold of a sort my Aunt Millie used to make — blandly gelatinous in flavor and texture with little pieces of boilerplate left-liberal policy suspended in it like peach chunks from a three-week-old can. I can’t think of another one of these events when the presidential candidate’s acceptance address ended up solidly in the running for the more-than-dubious honor of being the worst speech of the convention. I’d quote the bad parts, but

  • If This Is Cara Delevingne's Engagement Ring, She's 1 Very Lucky Girl

    Right after Jared Leto posted a shot of Cara Delevingne on Instagram, in which a sparkly diamond ring was front and center, the engagement speculation began. Worn on the Suicide Squad actress's left hand, and much brighter than your average jewel, it definitely fits the bill. While Cara and her girlfriend St. Vincent have been in a public relationship for over a year, they're not ones to put their relationship in the spotlight. With friends, however, they certainly celebrate their love (as shown by a "Happy Annievercarry!" sign in Taylor Swift's recent snap). Whether the couple will soon share the news of an upcoming wedding is TBD. For now, we'll just reminisce about their coordinated style

    Dave says it kills him to know that he hurt his wife, but he has no regrets about the affair. “She just filled the void in my life that I’ve always wanted and my wife didn’t fill,” he explains. “The sex with a new girl was more than I ever thought could happen in life. It was the greatest.” He admits that he kept both women in his life as he struggled to pick between them. “I was flip-flopping,” says Dave. “I was like Tarzan swinging from one vine to the other.” Turning to Dr. Phil for help, he says, “I do love Stacey. Sometimes, I wonder if we’re hanging on to something that is just hopeless.” Should this couple reconcile or could there be too much distrust and pain to move forward together?

Australian athletes are living in nearby hotels after a stress test resulted in flooding and power outages, calling the housing for the Olympic teams "uninhabitable." Over in the Dutch quarters, a small fire broke out.  Perhaps worst of all, there's also apparently have a dearth of power outlets, a potentially huge problem in today's technology-laden society.

  • Death Spiral: 4th Phase of Life May Signal the End Is Near

    Although most of the "death spiral" research has focused on fruit flies, scientists think these studies can offer valuable insight into the last stage of human life as well. "We believe this is part of the process of, basically, genetically programmed death," Laurence Mueller, chair of the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of California, Irvine, said in an interview with Live Science. Over the past decade, several studies of fruit flies have suggested this spiral toward death can be seen in the drop in reproductive rate (fecundity), according to a review of this research by Mueller and his colleagues, published earlier this year in the journal Biogerontology.

  • The best and worst chain burgers

    You can't travel very far in America without bumping into a burger chain. They exist in dense urban cores, suburban strip malls and tiny towns. There are so many of them you'd think we had reached the saturation point, yet they multiply every year. With so many, they compete by creating a cacophony of brightly colored ads hoping to catch our distracted attention. I've been doing my very best to avoid most of these places since I was a teenager. Wasn't it better to focus attention on smaller, family-owned operations? When challenged to find the best chain burgers, I felt both a sense of disgust and, honestly, curiosity. I mean, how bad can Burger King be? (Turns out, very.) But I have to admit

Now the Honolulu boss is facing criminal charges—and is under investigation for his claims, captured on video, that he allowed other community-service underlings to go home early in exchange for sexual favors. Makana Milho, 21, told The Daily Beast she feared for her safety when she began recording her interaction with the creepy city groundskeeper. “The universe was spinning,” Milho said. “I thought he could do basically anything to me.

  • We Compared Obama's Words To Trump's And The Result Will Make You Sad

    If someone shows you who they really are, believe them. Throughout his life, real estate mogul Donald Trump has given us countless opportunities to take to heart that piece of wisdom, originally imparted by Maya Angelou. He has spent the last 40-plus years in the public eye, developing and crafting his image through actions and words. Along the way, he’s embraced roles as a brash businessman, a playboy and an entertainer, all while offering us a clear window into his psyche. Trump’s exposure has made him both respected and reviled. By now, you probably know his controversial comments about women or Latinos. Some people love him for them. Others despise him.

    NASA’s next cargo delivery vehicle—a spunky little space plane that looks like it could be an offspring of the space shuttle—is getting ready to fly. The svelte and snub nosed Dream Chaser will soon be shipped to the Mojave desert in California where it would begin a series of ground tests that would eventually culminate with a flight from an altitude of 2.5 miles high. To get to this point, however, has been a long road for its manufacturer, the Sierra Nevada Corp. The company had originally pursued a NASA contract to fly astronauts to the International Space Station. But it lost out to SpaceX and Boeing, and so it then turned its attention to another contract—one to fly cargo and supplies to
