• Prospector finds huge gold nugget, even though it's 2016 and not 1851

    "Striking gold" is mainly a term to express when someone gets really lucky nowadays, but by golly, someone has actually done it. A 145-ounce gold nugget has been reportedly found in Victoria, Australia by a real life prospector and could be worth more than A$250,000 ($190,710) when it goes to auction. The big 'ol nugget has been named "Friday's Joy" on account of the day it was found.  SEE ALSO: 'World's largest truffle' is worth thousands but looks like a lot of poop My preciouses. Image: minelab The anonymous prospector initially found a nine ounce tennis ball-shaped gold nugget two feet deep, returning the next day to see if there was more, according to a statement from metal detector manufacturer, Minelab. And alas, gold was struck. Eureka! “About 12 inches below the ground, I could just barely make out the top of something. As I began to scrape away the clay and dig deeper, I really couldn't believe my eyes — this wasn't an old piece of steel in front of me," the prospector said in the statement. "I had just unearthed a colossal gold nugget — a once in a lifetime find! I was in total disbelief as I didn't think nuggets of this size were still around." Image: minelab The gold nugget is apparently now safely stowed away in a bank vault, but the prospector did hide it in their oven the first night after it was discovered.  "It's like catching a big fish and not knowing what to do with it! Where do we put it? I washed it in water, covered it in aluminium foil and kept it in my oven on the first night," they said, now planning to purchase a van and travel Australia with their newfound wealth.

    DEAR ABBY: I have a complicated family situation. My dad was married to a woman named “Cynthia” for 16 years until they divorced. He met and married my mother the next year. My parents were married for 40 years, until Mom died of cancer a year ago. Since her death, I have gone with my dad to a few holiday events hosted at his other daughters’ houses, where we saw them and Cynthia. Everyone was cordial and welcoming.

    A report released Monday by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reveals heartbreaking new details in the devastating death of Lane Graves, the 2-year-old boy who was fatally attacked by an alligator at Disney’s Grand Floridian in Orlando, Florida, earlier this year. According to the report, Lane Graves was building sand castles by the water when he waded into the shallow end to refill his bucket. Matt Graves, the boy’s father, attempted to try and pry open the alligator’s jaws by putting his hands inside of its mouth and grabbing its teeth, but this only caused the animal to fight back harder before pulling loose and dragging the 2-year-old into deeper water.

    If you like being packed into a small, confined space with 175-200 other people and treated with indifference (at best) or even outright and obvious disdain, then you’re really gonna love what Airbus has for you next. Soon you’ll be able (in theory) to squeeze yourself into a similarly small, confined space with twice as many people (350 to 400) and stay there twice as long while being treated with even greater indifference and/or even more obvious disdain. In some quarters of the world of airlines and airline manufactures this can be confused with progress.

Here are the truths behind five common nutrition myths: Remember last year’s scary headline? “World Health Organization Says Processed Meat Causes Cancer.” Turns out, the science was not as dire as the headline made it sound. The WHO report said that eating 50 grams of processed meat every day (about one hot dog) increased the relative risk of colorectal cancer by 18 percent. That’s not the same as “causing cancer.” To put it into perspective: The average person has a 5 percent risk of developing colon cancer; those who eat a lot

  • Obama visits flood-damaged Baton Rouge (18 photos)

    After touring recovery efforts in a flooded Baton Rouge neighborhood Tuesday, Aug. 23, President Obama pledged to help rebuild Louisiana, insisting his visit there “is not a photo-op.” “I come here first and foremost to say that the prayers of the entire nation are with everybody who lost loved ones. We are heartbroken by the loss of life,” he said during remarks after his tour of the flooding. “There are also still people who are desperately trying to track down friends and family. We are going to keep on helping them every way that we can.” Obama observed that “people’s lives have been upended by this flood.” “Sometimes when these kinds of things happen, it can seem too much to bear, but what I want the people of Louisiana to know is that you’re not alone on this,” he said. “Even after the TV cameras leave, the whole country is going to continue to support you and help you until we get folks back in their homes and lives are rebuilt.” The president praised the Federal Emergency Management Agency for its efforts coordinating a federal response, which he said has already reached $127 million in assistance.

While it looks like most of the home has been renovated since it was originally built in 1919, it still possesses a craftsman charm thanks to the crown molding and large windows. Meanwhile, the 6,700-square-feet lot with a cozy back porch and avocado and lemon trees are the definition of California relaxation. Though, rumor has it,
