A mama Black Bear attacked a marathon-runner at Valles Caldera National Park in defense of her cubs. The runner survived by playing dead, but the Department of Game and Fish euthanized the bear, who was part of a study and wearing a tracking device.

You may be able to purchase a semi-automatic rifle in a number of minutes, but don't count on sending a rifle emoji.

Young artist Kaylin Andres who has been diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer expresses the realities of her illness through timeless art exhibits.

So, this is strange: In Jackson, Mississippi a 77-year-old man stole three boxes of frozen chicken before hastily riding away on a bicycle.

Looks like the Great Pyramid of Giza is a bit crooked. Ah well, we all make mistakes. Even extraterrestrials.

Anyone else growing as impatient as I am to see Steven Spielberg's rendition of Roald Dahl's fantastically imaginative book The BFG? The director and producer explains why he feels a distinct connection with the Big Friendly Giant.

The Daily Word in Robots, Cadavers and Cheese

By Monica Schmitt [ Tue May 31 2016 10:57 AM ]
The Daily Word

What's with all the barbecues and pool parties? The U.S. has got to adopt some more entertaining traditions, like chasing a wheel of cheese down a hill, perhaps. England is clearly doing it right.

If you're as disturbed by animal cruelty as I am and sick of hearing about it, watch this video instead.

Is this real life or part of a Mary Shelley novel?

Let's set the record straight: The meaning of life is probably not the number 42. This mechanical engineering professor offers an explanation from a purely scientific standpoint.

How's this for an exciting internship?

Barton Elementary School recognizes the importance of art education, and the results are inspiring.

A hug a day keeps the Prozac away.

Georgia O'Keeffe didn't just paint “flowers.”

A virtual reality film shows what it's like to be an abortion patient.

What if your food breathed and moved while you ate it? And it wasn't an animal?

What really separates Kristen Stewart and Woody Allen in Hollywood? (Hint: If you're going to read this article, it's probably because of Woody Allen)

The Daily Word in Nature, Banksy and Stonehenge

By Monica Schmitt [ Tue May 24 2016 12:59 PM ]
The Daily Word

If you're also wondering "who the f*ck builds a stonehenge," the answer may not be as mysterious as you think. But until someone builds a time machine and travels to the past, who really knows?

Today marks The European Day of Parks, a cause for celebration and appreciation of the region's protected natural places. Find that last bit of inspiration needed for a European adventure in these stunning photos.

Works by the forever anonymous and controversial artist Banksy are lent by private collectors and shown at a gallery in Rome.

Governor Martinez is one Burqueña who will neither support nor protest the Albuquerque Trump rally. The reason? She's “really busy.”

Venezuelans, furious about food shortages and inflation, protest against President Maduro on the streets of Caracas.

Don't fear trans people in bathrooms, fear diaper changing stations. Learn from this woman's mistake and remember to put the table back up.
