A video that went viral in March showed Melanie Gilmore learning that her children had located her birth mother, Zella Jackson Price of suburban St. Louis. DNA confirmed with near 100-percent certainty that the two are mother and daughter.


St. Louis Burning: A ticking time bomb beneath the city?

St. Louis ticking time bombIf it were any other morning after six inches of overnight snow in St. Louis, Dawn Chapman probably would have been sledding with her three kids.

But one phone call from a distressed neighbor at 6 a.m. changed that. A 21-year-old who lives nearby — their friend’s daughter — got the biopsy results from her ruptured appendix. The tests confirmed everyone’s fears: appendix cancer.

"It’s an obstacle course – have some fun!” yells another to exhausted soldiers ordered to crab-walk to the evocatively-named “Belly Buster,” a station that involves running headlong into a stomach-high moving log.


Princeton Is 'Quiet Ivy' No More as Raucous Israel Debate Roils Campus

PrincetonPrinceton University has long been known as the “conservative Ivy.” It’s a reference that encompasses not just the school’s centrist political image when compared with Ivy League universities like Harvard or Brown, but also its bucolic atmosphere and generally quiescent student body.
