  • The San Diego Zoo Safari Park put a baby cheetah and a puppy together, and the scene on camera is about as adorable as you might expect.

    A 6-week-old cheetah cub named Ruuxa arrived in the care of the zoo after his mother rejected him. According to the zoo's blog, Ruuxa was born alone instead of as part of a litter, which is usually three to five cubs. In lieu of his mom, the baby cheetah had to be hand-raised by keepers.

    Now with the San Diego Zoo, the cub will be raised with a 7-week-old Rhodesian ridgeback puppy named Raina.

    "Because the cheetah was by himself and did not have any siblings we wanted him to have a companion immediately," animal training manager Susie Ekard said in the blog post. "They definitely like to play, and when they take naps together, they often will snuggle up together for that warmth and closeness."

    The pair's bond is evident in a video the zoo posted on its YouTube channel. The cub and puppy casually roll around together, sneaking in a quick kiss or sniff

  • We've seen the better halves of coaching families advocate for a number of issues that affect others. But in this instance, Sarah Harbaugh's platform is to "Stop Dad Pants," or ill-fitting bottoms that fathers are known to wear. Now the wife of San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim is taking her message to a broader audience in a hilarious new PSA.

    The tale of Harbaugh's pants actually dates back to January. After defeating the Carolina Panthers to advance to the NFC championship game, the head coach told reporters, "These Dickies cost $23. They were on sale, though."

    Then in a radio interview, Sarah expressed her disdain for her husband's pleated khakis while also disputing the cost.

    "I've thrown [his pants] away many of times," Mrs. Harbaugh told KMVQ-FM. "I threw them out, and when he went to the [NFL Scouting] Combine, he found a Walmart. They were $8. $8!"

    During that same chat, however, Mrs. Harbaugh may have forecasted what was to come.

    "I still love him," she noted. "But he did

  • Meet Nick, a young man with a disability who is inspiring others with a new online video.

    Nick graduated from eTrac, an online curriculum built by Midwest Special Services in St. Paul, Minnesota. According to the school's website, the mission of the program is "to teach job search skills to people struggling to overcome barriers to employment, such as disabilities, gaps in employment history or mental health challenges."

    "The six-module program focuses on developing and building soft skills, the skills that are common to all work environments and all types of jobs," wrote Colleen Wieck, Executive Director of the Minnesota Governor's Council on Developmental Disabilities. The council evaluated and endorsed eTrac. "Accessibility and ease of navigation were considered at the outset, and the immediate feedback feature helps to assure that skills are acquired and the purpose of each module successfully achieved."

    After completing the curriculum, Nick sought out an employment opportunity at

  • A 15-year-old with an insatiable thirst for science has developed shoes that can charge your phone or any USB-powered device by simply walking.

    Angelo Casimiro lives in the Philippines, a country still recovering from last fall's Typhoon Haiyan.

    "A lot of people are still suffering from poverty," he says in a YouTube video in which he demonstrates his invention. Some people have no access to electricity, he adds. For them, "a simple source of light is big," he says.

    Now Angelo is creating a new way to generate power. He placed two pairs of physio-electric discs on the insole of each shoe. The discs produce energy when any type of pressure is placed on them. That energy is then channeled to a USB port, which an electronic device can plug in to.

    "My insole generator does not use coils, motors, magnets, or anything that involves moving parts," he explains. "We have a pair (of physio-electric discs) mounted back-to-back. When you make back-to-back pairs, you're able to harvest twice the

  • Richard Dunn voluntarily bumped himself off two Delta flights leaving Las Vegas and spent the night at McCarran International Airport.

    The Georgia native who is originally from Canada didn't have enough time to hit a blackjack table or grab a hotel room before his new 6 a.m. departure. So instead he stayed in the terminal and paid tribute to a famous Canadian singer who is no stranger herself to Vegas.

    Dunn filmed a music video in which he lip-syncs to Celine Dion's cover of "All By Myself." Dion, who was born in Quebec, is currently headlining her second residency at Caesars Palace. Dunn uploaded the piece to Vimeo on Sunday. It has since been viewed over 4.4 million times.

    "I was supposed to go out at 3 o'clock in the afternoon, and (Delta) was offering vouchers. They were offering $400," Dunn explained in an interview with CBC Radio. "I thought, 'Oh that's not bad. I'll hang around until 11 p.m. and get bumped."

    The airline, which Dunn has been using for 18 years, then offered him
