  • Doctors thought he just had jock itch. Then it spread.

    Late Friday afternoon on Dec. 4, 2014, Stephen Schroeder was waiting to board his packed flight from Philadelphia to Las Vegas for a much anticipated long weekend with his son when his cellphone rang. On the line was an unexpected caller: his doctor, reporting test results sooner than Schroeder had expected. Listening intently, Schroeder was flooded with disbelief as he struggled to comprehend what he was hearing. Using the lip of a trash can as a writing surface, he scribbled notes on the back of his boarding pass, making the doctor spell out each unfamiliar word. Then he sent a terse text to his wife, who was at their home in the Philadelphia suburbs, and got on the plane. Onboard, Schroeder,

  • The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Is Losing Its Showrunner

    It can be hard to pinpoint what makes a late-night show work so well with audiences, but The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon seems to have cracked the code. Over the last few years, the series has become one of the most popular late-night offerings, consistently dominating in the ratings season after season. While much of this has to do with the charisma of the man in front of the camera, it's important to remember those behind the scenes as well. With that in mind, it now seems The Tonight Show has suffered a major loss, as showrunner Josh Lieb has officially left the series. After serving as the late-night series' showrunner for several years, Josh Lieb has decided to step down from The

  • Principal brutally beaten after telling teen to remove headphones

  • Woman Dies After Hospital Refuses to Treat Her for a Miscarriage

    Valentina Milluzzo had been carrying twins for less than five months when she arrived at Italy’s Cannizzaro Hospital in labor. She was already experiencing complications, and after two weeks, her temperature and blood pressure dropped and one of the fetuses developed breathing issues. But her family’s lawyer says the doctor refused to perform an abortion, claiming to be a “conscientious objector,” according to the BBC. "As long as it’s alive, I will not intervene,” they allegedly said. She miscarried within hours and died the next day. The head of the hospital disputed the family's allegations in a statement to the Ansa news agency, saying that they were incorrect. Another doctor at the same

  • Russia is preparing for nuclear war

    Across Russia, forty million civilians and military personnel just finished up emergency drills aimed at preparing the general population for nuclear or chemical weapons attacks, the Wall Street Journal's Thomas Grove reports. But as troubling as the largest civil defense drills since the height of the Cold War have been, the steps Russia has taken to improve its offensive nuclear capabilities likely overshadow them. Since the breakdown of US-Russian talks on the fate of Syria, Russia has pulled out of a nuclear non-proliferation agreement with the US citing "unfriendly acts" by the US, it has moved nuclear-capable missiles to its European enclave of Kaliningrad, and it has threatened "asymmetrical" and "painful" actions against the US should it decide to impose sanctions on Russia over Syria.

  • My Co-Workers Hate Me -- Because I Do My Job

    Dear Liz, I am in a bad work situation right now. I took a job that was a step down back in January because I had no choice. I got laid off in October. The job I have now was the first offer I got and I was out of money. There is nothing wrong with my job except one thing. I’m a Senior Account Specialist for a marketing firm. When I started the job I was excited, even though I had the same job in a different company over 10 years ago. I work for a good company. The managers are smart and compassionate, but they are clueless about their employees’ performance. Watch On Forbes: I am one of 10 Account Specialists and I’m the oldest one. Several of my co-workers are unbelievable slackers. The amount

  • An Apology From My 2-Year-Old

    My heart sank. As my friend called me over to the play area, the look on her face pretty much said it all. I saw my 25-month-old sitting with her head hanging low next to your little boy as his cheeks were red, and tears were pouring. The play area was quite crazy and you hadn't even yet realized what my little girl had done to your son. My heart was pounding and my natural maternal reaction was to scoop your precious baby up in my arms and immediately come look for you. I tried to console him as my eyes scanned the sea of mothers, desperately hoping that somehow the intensity of color in his cheeks that were just squeezed and clawed at would somehow go down before we found you. As we connected
