  • Tom Hanks famously yelled, "There's no crying in baseball!" in the 1992 film "A League of Their Own."

    Fast-forward to the Little League World Series Monday night. Coach and manager Dave Belisle of Rhode Island's Cumberland American All-Stars stopped the waterworks by giving an inspiring speech to his little guys after they were eliminated after a close game with Jackie Robinson West, 8-7.

    As most of the kids in the huddle cried, Belisle had them lift their heads and look him in the eye. Coach got a little sentimental himself before finally bringing the boys in for one last team hug.

    In the press room after the game, Belisle said, "They definitely learned what the word pride is."

    Belisle added, "I got a lot of attention here for how I coach. It's easy for me to coach like that when you have such wonderful kids that dedicate themselves, that respect you as much as I respect them … They gave me a summer of my life that I'll never forget."

  • Three teenage siblings from Georgia came up with a high-tech way to report any interactions with police — good or bad.

    It is a smartphone app called Five-O. Across the nation, people who buy the app can use it to document every step of an encounter with police.

    The app has several functions. There is a "Know Your Rights" tab that summarizes what your rights are when you are stopped by the police, while the community message forums discuss local law enforcement issues.

    It's like a Yelp of sorts but for local police officers instead of restaurants, so users can complete incident reports to gauge good and bad behavior, with aims to increase efficiency, set positive examples, and in negative cases, serve as a starting point for problem-solving.

    The creators behind the app are 16-year-old Ima, 15-year-old Asha, and their brother, 14-year-old Caleb Christian.

    "We've been hearing about the negative instances in the news, for instance most recently the Michael Brown case, and we always talk about

  • You've heard of a jellyfish sting, maybe you've even experienced one. But have you ever seen one?

    When a jellyfish actually stings someone or something, the action is often too small and too fast to see with the naked eye. This video, however, captures a real-life sting in slow motion!

    Destin from SmarterEveryDay visited toxinologist Dr. Jamie Seymour, one of the team members present when Steve Irwin, "The Crocodile Hunter," was fatally stung by a stingray in 2006.

    At James Cook University in Australia, researchers used a microscope and high-speed camera to discover what exactly happens when a jellyfish, or in this specific case, an anemone, stings you. They have wanted to capture the process on camera for years, but only now has the technology been able to do so.

    Instead of thinking it's just tentacles dragging across your skin and leaving venom behind, what actually happens it that an organelle (a  specific subunit within a cell with a special function) called a nematocyst takes the

  • New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who is no stranger to commuter controversy following Bridgegate earlier this year, has been taken to task on Twitter while on vacation with his family in California.

    The conversation came after a New Jersey commuter faced delays heading home for the weekend from New York.

    The governor tweeted:

    The call to “hang in there” was not received well by transit riders. Twitter user Patrick Daly called out the governor’s decision to cancel a train tunnel in New York City back in 2010.

    Daly replied "ARC TUNNEL.  You are killing our home values and the NJ economy. We HANG IN THERE at least with delays, 4 times a week."

    The two continued to go back and forth in successive and sometime heated tweets.

    Daly referenced a famous line said by Christie during Hurricane Sandy:

    "Wow. really.
