It might not look like much but a small, new satellite now in orbit above Earth holds the claim of being a first step into the final frontier.
Images and video from the latest widespread wildfires in California paint the picture of a flaming hellscape where all hope is lost. One small act of compassion would suggest otherwise. An ABC News crew shooting footage of the flames managed to capture an unidentified young man catching a small, wild rabbit in danger of getting hurt. A tweet with the footage has been retweeted over 23,000 times by early Thursday morning, Dec. 7.
If you’re looking for an illustration of the internet’s tendency to wind itself around a whipping pole of pointless debate, consider the high-pitched rivalry between cat and dog people. Whose gifs are cuter? Whose anecdotes are more precious? In the case of some ridiculous costume, whose unwilling pet wore it better? And, in which owners are projecting their own insecurities, which is smarter?
PORTLAND, Tex. - Actor Lou Diamond Phillips, best known for his role in the movie “La Bamba,” was arrested, early Friday morning, Nov. 3, on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, the San Antonio Express-News reported. At around 1:35 a.m., Phillips approached an officer who was conducting an unrelated traffic stop and asked for directions, Portland Police Chief Mark Cory told the news outlet. Phillips then failed a field sobriety test and was taken into custody, where a breathalyzer test showed his blood alcohol content was 0.20, more than twice the legal limit. La bummer.

LuLaRoe, a California company that has racked up billions of dollars in sales behind promises of an income stream for women who sell the company’s brightly patterned clothing, is facing a new class-action lawsuit seeking $1 billion in damages while leveling accusations of operating a pyramid scheme, The Press-Enterprise of Riverside, Calif., reported.
ORLANDO, Fla. - We’re all concerned about the fate of the packages we order online. Will the order be correct? Will it be safe on my doorstep until I get home from work? But a Florida couple’s experience adds a new wrinkle to those anxieties. After ordering some plastic totes to help them with storage around their Orlando home, the couple reportedly got way more than they bargained for: 65 pounds of marijuana.
The common wisdom goes a little something like this: A herd is only as fast as its slowest members, which would be the first to get eaten if they’re chased by a predator. It’s an easy comparison to make to the newest rollout of venison sandwiches by the meatmongers at Arby’s, where they appear to see their tagline – “We have the meats” – as a rallying cry in the chase for hungry customers.
Remember those painted lady butterflies that were showing up in gardens across the upper Midwest just a few weeks ago? In their move back south, they made their presence known in a big way. On Tuesday, Oct. 3, the National Weather Service in Boulder, Colo., shared a radar image on Twitter that they initially identified as a possible flock of birds, asking bird experts in the area with help identifying them:
