- Hitler remark: Will it hurt Hillary Clinton?
Will the Hitler remark made by Hillary Rodham Clinton rebound against her? That’s what some Republicans are saying in the wake of Clinton’s comparing Vladimir Putin the architect of the Third Reich. It’s that the 2016 Democratic presidential frontrunner was at the center of the Obama administration’s attempt to “reset” US-Russia relations when she was secretary of State. If Putin’s Hitler, why try to make friends?

- Despite Warming, Ground Refreezes at Alaska's Shrinking Lakes
Alaska's bushy willows can temporarily counteract some of the effects of climate change in one of the world's most quickly warming places, researchers have discovered. At Alaska's shrinking Twelvemile Lake, the heavy shade provided by willows growing on the lake's newly exposed margins chills the ground enough for new permafrost to form, researchers have discovered. However, modeling of the conditions that encourage new permafrost growth suggests the icy ground will only last another 70 years because of global warming, according to the study, published Feb. 14 in the journal Geophysical Research Letters. Twelvemile Lake is one of millions of lakes that pepper Alaska's permafrost.
- U.S. Senators seek recovery of 'unknown' Pearl Harbor victims
Fifteen U.S. Senators on Thursday called on the military to identify the bodies of 21 "unknown" sailors from the U.S.S. Oklahoma who were killed during the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor and to return the remains to their families. In a letter to Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, the senators, led by Democrat Chris Murphy of Connecticut and Republican Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, noted that in recent years historians have succeeded in identifying the remains of other sailors who died in the battle that drew the United States into World War Two. The remains of the 21 men are contained in five coffins at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Hawaii, where they were buried after the battleship Oklahoma was salvaged in 1943, the senators wrote. "The brave men who died protecting our great nation at Pearl Harbor deserve a final resting place of their families' choosing," the senators wrote.
