Amid Spiking Violence, Israeli Police Clash With Palestinians at Al-Aqsa Mosque

Clashes continue at al Asqa mosqueIsraeli police and Palestinians clashed on Sunday at Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa mosque compound, where violence in recent weeks has raised international concern.

New York Mets celebrate NL East title: 'You can't help but smile'

NY Mets win pennantThousands of Mets fans chanted David Wright’s name as he wrapped up an on-field interview and headed back toward the sloshy clubhouse. He paused to wave and soak in the moment.

The team captain wasn’t sure he’d ever do this again, not with that last playoff appearance nine years ago. Finally, the wait was over.

As Wright’s champagne-and-beer-soaked shirt proclaimed: “The East Is Ours.”


Giant Viruses Are Hiding in Permafrost, But Not for Long

Giant viruses in permafrostIf you’re a germophobe, you won’t find comfort even in bleak Siberian expanses. Scientists have made another massive discovery of ancient (and giant) viruses hidden dormant in the permafrost. As the planet warms, finding these things—and waking them—is going to become more commonplace.

That’s significant, especially when you understand the gravity of the findings for experts involved in the ongoing research.


VW staff, supplier warned of emissions test cheating years ago: reports

Boehner slams some GOP hard liners as 'false prophets'

John BoehnerHouse Speaker John Boehner warned Sunday against "false prophets" in his own party making unrealistic promises, saying his resignation had averted a government shutdown this week but not the GOP's broader battle over how to wield power.

Speaking on CBS's "Face the Nation," Boehner unloaded against conservatives long outraged that even with control of both houses of Congress, Republicans have not succeeded on key agenda items, such as repealing President Barack Obama's health care law and striking taxpayer funding from Planned Parenthood. He refused to back down from calling one of the tea party-styled leaders and presidential candidate, Sen. Ted Cruz, a "jackass."

Industrial farming is one of the worst crimes in history

Industrial farmingAnimals are the main victims of history, and the treatment of domesticated animals in industrial farms is perhaps the worst crime in history. The march of human progress is strewn with dead animals.

Even tens of thousands of years ago, our stone age ancestors were already responsible for a series of ecological disasters. When the first humans reached Australia about 45,000 years ago, they quickly drove to extinction 90% of its large animals. This was the first significant impact that Homo sapiens had on the planet’s ecosystem. It was not the last.
