  • Toronto Might Actually Reelect Rob Ford
    Toronto Might Actually Reelect Rob Ford

    Rob Ford, the Toronto Mayor who admitted to smoking crack and having an alcohol problem, is only down by three percentage points in the latest poll. A Forum Research poll shows Ford at 31 percent, compared to lead candidate John Tory's 34 percent. Equally surprising, the number of Toronto residents who want him to resign has dropped from 63 percent to about 50 percent.

    Couple Saves Chubby Prairie Dog from Hole in Road

    If you drive a car, you've seen roadkill on occasion. But how often do you actually see a "road rescue"? This save from danger might be one of a kind. A couple driving along a rural road on the Olkhon Island of Russia discovered a cute and chubby prairie dog in need of some immediate assistance.

  • Brewer Releases 99-Pack of Beer
    Brewer Releases 99-Pack of Beer

    We all know the saying "Everything is BIG in Texas." But for beer lovers everywhere, this is even cooler than big hats, belt buckles, and barbecue. Actually, this would be ideal with a lot of freshly charred barbecue. Austin Beerworks has just unveiled a new over-the-top way to get its beer into your gut with a limited-edition 99-pack of brewski. The big box of brew will set you back $99 (or a buck a can), which is pretty good for a can of this Texas good stuff. But don't expect it to fit in your compact car with ease. The packaging is insanely exaggerated at seven feet long. The brewery released the gigantic box as part of a social media campaign for its Peacemaker Anytime Ale.

  • Israeli police find body in search for missing U.S. student
    Israeli police find body in search for missing U.S. student

    Israeli police and volunteers found a body near a forest in Jerusalem on Thursday while searching for a 23-year-old American student who went missing last week, but said no formal identification had yet been made. Aaron Sofer, a Jewish seminary student from New Jersey, vanished on Friday while walking in woods not far from Israel's Yad Vashem Holocaust museum, Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said. In June, three Israeli seminary students, all teenagers, were kidnapped while hitch-hiking in the occupied West Bank, some 30 km (20 miles) south of Jerusalem, and later found dead. The Palestinian militant group Hamas later acknowledged responsibility for the killings, which helped precipitate seven weeks of war between militants in Gaza and Israel that ended with an open-ended ceasefire on Tuesday.

  • Obama’s Anti-Doctrine Doctrine
    Obama’s Anti-Doctrine Doctrine

    Terrorists in Syria and Iraq have been overrunning the countryside, pausing to savagely murder an American journalist. Pakistan is reeling from political crisis. The Russians just made an incursion into Ukraine, the Israelis have been blowing up every other building in Gaza, and Ebola's rampaging through West Africa. All of which has led to some of the most blistering criticism of Barack Obama's presidency.

  • Brazilian Town Run by Women Is Looking for a Few Good (Single) Men
    Brazilian Town Run by Women Is Looking for a Few Good (Single) Men

    I'm sure many men have dreamed of an island completely populated by exotic women, available to fulfill their every desire. Of course, fantasy is fantasy, but what if it were reality? In a certain regard, it is — in Noiva do Cordeiro, Brazil. It's a scenic rural town in the hills outside of Belo Horizante with one big quirk, or perk, depending on whom you talk to. This Brazilian town is inhabited and governed almost entirely by women, its population consisting of more than 600 mostly single women aged 20 to 25. Sons are sent away at 18, and spouses are banned from the town except on weekends.

  • Romney for US president in 2016? Iowa poll puts him on top
    Romney for US president in 2016? Iowa poll puts him on top

    Americans may not be through with Mitt Romney after all. The two-time Republican presidential candidate has repeatedly stressed over the past year that he is not interested in a third shot at the White House. The survey of Iowa Republican voters conducted by Suffolk University and USA Today showed that if Romney was added to the pool of potential 2016 Republican contenders, 35 percent of respondents would place him first in the Iowa caucuses, the political contest that kicks off the primary calendar. Arkansas ex-governor Mike Huckabee came in a distant second, at just nine percent, with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie trailing at 6.5 percent and former senator Rick Santorum at six percent.
