    The 17-year-old traveled 250 miles with a bloody mouth, broken teeth and a hole in his jaw, trekking from a small town in Nevada to a pediatric hospital in Utah with his mother.

  • David Ortiz was not intended target in murder-for-hire plot, prosecutor says

    SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic – David Ortiz was not the intended target of the murder-for-hire plot that led to the former Red Sox star being shot, authorities in the Dominican Republic said Wednesday.

    PHILADELPHIA, Pa. — Seventy-two Philadelphia police officers have been placed on administrative duty in light of racist and offensive social media posts allegedly made by the officers, Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross said Wednesday.

  • Astronomers find 2 new planets that have ingredients to support life

    Is anybody home? Astronomers have pinpointed two planets orbiting a nearby star that meet pretty much every requirement for supporting life. They’re almost exactly the same mass as the Earth, they are billions of years old (which means life could have had time to evolve), and they’re orbiting their star at a distance that would support things like water flow and habitable temperatures. The two planets orbit Teegarden’s star, an ancient star that is only 12-light-years away from the Earth. […]

  • Hershey’s gives its acclaimed Take5 candy bar a Reese’s makeover

    HERSHEY, Pa. — Hershey’s had a problem: It was making a critically acclaimed candy bar that barely no one was buying. Something had to change. It was time to act. The Take5 bar, made of chocolate, caramel, peanuts, pretzels and peanut butter, is basically a candy-lover’s dream. It just topped the Los Angeles Times’ candy bar power rankings. Yet only 3% of US households purchased a Take5 bar last year. Hershey decided that the issue was the green and black label. It […]

  • Suicide rates among America’s young people continue to soar, study shows

    Suicide rates among young people have continued to soar in recent years — so much so that the rate among 15- to 24-year-olds climbed in 2017 to its highest point since 2000, new research has found. An increase was especially seen among 15- to 19-year-olds and young men, according to a research paper published Tuesday in the medical journal JAMA. The finding hits close to home for the paper’s first author, Oren Miron, a research associate at Harvard Medical School. “In high […]

  • Black bear had to be euthanized after it came to love people who fed it, took selfies

Since the beginning of June, Oregon police received regular calls about the bear, which was usually spotted near its favorite boat ramp at an Oregon park. On Thursday, they found the animal surrounded by a pile of trail mix and sunflower seeds that appeared to have been left behind intentionally by some […]

  • Police: Teen killed friend with disability after Indiana man she met online offered her $9M

    Denali Brehmer began planning how to kill her “best friend” after a man she met online said he would pay her several million dollars for evidence of the killing, Alaska authorities say. The 18-year-old from Anchorage, Alaska, had developed an online relationship with Darin Schilmiller, 21, of Indiana, who posed as a millionaire named “Tyler,” and offered her at least $9 million to kill Cynthia Hoffman and send him “videos and photographs of the murder,” according to the Alaska Department […]
