  • Who doesn't need a Monday pick-me-up? Here's a little dose of cuteness to bring some sunshine to your Monday, wherever you are.

    Today's cuteness comes courtesy of Brazilian Instagram user jmarcoz. Jmarcoz, who owns a kennel in Brasilia, has used his Instagram account to post more than 600 photos of the most charming little bulldogs you may ever have seen.

    In the pictures, the bulldog puppies play, soak in the sunshine, scrap and wrestle, and play with their squeaky toys. They also are not afraid to don silly costumes, play in a kiddie pool, and ride seesaws.

    Jmarcoz says of his work with his kennel that the dogs are bred with "love, affection, and respect as members of our family." As you may imagine, jmarcoz has gained a large fan base from his posts of cute pups. He has more than 13,000 followers on Instagram so far.

    Fans of the pups can't help but comment on their cuteness, with one person writing about a baby French bulldog named Brooke, "I am so in love the next puppy I get will

  • One of a news anchor's responsibilities is to read the news, understand it, and then report it to the audience articulately. The stories that the journalist reports usually have nothing to do with his or her personal life, but that was not the case with Jillian Pavlica, an anchor for Fox 54 in Huntsville, Alabama.

    During the Saturday 9 p.m. newscast, as Pavlica read from the prompter, she was instructed that there was breaking news. Pavlica read, "News 54 has just learned that a Huntsville news anchor is being proposed ... on live TV right now." Pavlica seems stunned by the situation. As she realizes what's happening, she can barely contain her emotion, especially when she sees her boyfriend.

    Apparently, Pavlica's boyfriend, Vince, had the confidence to propose to her live and had gotten the news producer to play along with his plan. As Pavlica's co-anchors realized what was happening, they abruptly left the set. That's when Vince moved in and began to get down on one knee and asked

  • Broc Brown is not your average 15-year-old high school student. Brown, who is 7 feet 5 inches and weighs 330 pounds, has a rare rapid growth disease known as Sotos syndrome, or cerebral gigantism. He was more than 3 feet tall by the time he was only 2 months old. Brown likes his height, saying, "It's actually a good feeling to be tall." Unfortunately, his height interferes with everyday activities such as walking from room to room at his parents' house. Brown has to constantly duck under doorways to avoid hitting his head.

    "There's a lot of things that are hard, like finding shoes for him, finding clothes," said Brown's mother, Darci Elliot. Athletic apparel powerhouse Nike made Brown a pair of custom size 24 sneakers, but the price of his other clothing and medical expenses continue to be a burden on the family.

    His disease forces him to be hospitalized often, and he cannot participate in organized sports because his disease makes him too weak and out of breath.

  • Most of us have heard the old adage, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." In other words, keep your negative thoughts to yourself. But what if someone could read your thoughts?

    A new technological breakthrough allows scientists to see what people are imagining; they can even decipher what number a person has just seen, what video the person has just watched, or what particular memory the person is recalling.

    Imaging has become so sophisticated that researchers at Cornell University were able to deduce the mental picture of imaginary people that brain scan subjects were inventing in their heads. Neuroscientist Nathan Spreng said of the study, "We are trying to understand the physical mechanisms that allow us to have an inner world, and a part of that is how we represent other people in our mind."

    Here's how the experiment went: Researchers gave 19 volunteers descriptions of four imaginary people, whose personalities had certain positive and negative

  • It seems as if almost weekly now, there's a new cat video that captures our attention. This time it's a cat known as Nyasuke. This Japanese cat is getting worldwide recognition for his amazing jumping talent, and he's been featured on a number of YouTube videos that show off his skills.

    In one video, Nyasuke is trying out his paws at a new sporting talent -- goaltending. This is one of his more popular videos, because he gets in the downward-facing dog (I guess it's actually cat in this instance) yoga position, and he eagerly waits to pounce on the miniature soccer ball that his owner launches into the air. Effortlessly, Nyasuke blocks the ball from getting beyond his reach.

    In yet another video, Nyasuke demonstrates his jumping prowess. This video, which has received more than 1.9 million views, shows just how high he can jump. Commenters on YouTube are impressed by the slow-motion effect of Nyasuke jumping up to 196 centimeters to knock down a fake mouse attached to a string that
