The Daily Word

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.
