MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A 14-year-old Wisconsin girl tried to kill her brother's girlfriend, slitting her throat and telling her during the attack that she was a psychopath looking for her first kill, according to investigators.
(NEWSER) – When researchers grew concerned about underground anomalies detected near the Mayan ruins of Palenque in Mexico, they began a dig to figure out whether the pyramid was in danger of collapse. This week, researchers announced that what they found was no anomaly but rather a small canal system, reports the AP. They now think the tomb of the ancient ruler Pakal was built atop a natural spring about 700 AD, with tunnels that directed water to the esplanade in front of the temple in the hope of giving Pakal's spirit a way into the underworld. In fact, an engraving at the site reads that the dead gain entrance to the underworld in such a manner via the god Chaac, who will "will guide the

Although most of the "death spiral" research has focused on fruit flies, scientists think these studies can offer valuable insight into the last stage of human life as well. "We believe this is part of the process of, basically, genetically programmed death," Laurence Mueller, chair of the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of California, Irvine, said in an interview with Live Science. Over the past decade, several studies of fruit flies have suggested this spiral toward death can be seen in the drop in reproductive rate (fecundity), according to a review of this research by Mueller and his colleagues, published earlier this year in the journal Biogerontology.
Dave says it kills him to know that he hurt his wife, but he has no regrets about the affair. “She just filled the void in my life that I’ve always wanted and my wife didn’t fill,” he explains. “The sex with a new girl was more than I ever thought could happen in life. It was the greatest.” He admits that he kept both women in his life as he struggled to pick between them. “I was flip-flopping,” says Dave. “I was like Tarzan swinging from one vine to the other.” Turning to Dr. Phil for help, he says, “I do love Stacey. Sometimes, I wonder if we’re hanging on to something that is just hopeless.” Should this couple reconcile or could there be too much distrust and pain to move forward together?
Right after Jared Leto posted a shot of Cara Delevingne on Instagram, in which a sparkly diamond ring was front and center, the engagement speculation began. Worn on the Suicide Squad actress's left hand, and much brighter than your average jewel, it definitely fits the bill. While Cara and her girlfriend St. Vincent have been in a public relationship for over a year, they're not ones to put their relationship in the spotlight. With friends, however, they certainly celebrate their love (as shown by a "Happy Annievercarry!" sign in Taylor Swift's recent snap). Whether the couple will soon share the news of an upcoming wedding is TBD. For now, we'll just reminisce about their coordinated style
An Australian Cattle Dog was rescued this month in California after waiting in the yard for his deceased owner, officials said. Ricky Bobby, 13, was found outside a boarded-up home in Mojave, according to Zach Skow, founder and executive director at Marley's Mutts Dog Rescue in Tehachapi, California. "He is so big and fat but when he walked on a leash, tried to run," Skow said, noting that the dog is 108 pounds.
