  • First patient to receive double hand transplant in US says limbs are non-functional

    Jeff Kepner made headlines in 2009 as the first person to receive a double hand transplant in the United States. Seven years later, 64-year-old Kepner is in the news again as he reveals the hands are completely non-functioning. “From day one I have never been able to use my hands,” Kepner told TIME in an exclusive interview. “I can do absolutely nothing. I sit in my chair all day and wear my TV out.” Kepner lost his hands to sepsis that started from a strep throat infection in 1999. He used prosthetics to help him drive and keep his job, TIME reported, neither of which he can do now. Ten years after the infection he underwent surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) to attach

  • Explorers spot mysterious purple orb on ocean floor

    The research vessel Nautilus is a floating laboratory equipped with cameras that can peer deep down to the ocean floor. Researchers with the Ocean Exploration Trust posted a video on Monday showing an unusual find. The Nautilus spied a small bright-purple orb underwater at the Channel Islands off the coast of California in the US. The main focus for the vehicle's Channel Islands mission is to study deep-sea corals, but the odd sphere attracted the scientists' attention. The video includes a soundtrack of the researchers making real-time observations as the camera sweeps along. They call it a "purple blob" and then wonder aloud "What is that?" The researchers throw out some scientific names as

  • Aaron Rodgers reveals the true meaning of Peyton Manning's 'Omaha' call

    Thanks to Aaron Rodgers, the mystery of Peyton Manning's 'Omaha' call has finally been solved. For years, football fans everywhere have tried to solve the riddle of the 'Omaha' call, only to come up empty.

  • No, Megyn Kelly Should Not Have Worn That Dress

    Megyn Kelly reported on the Republican National Convention while wearing a spaghetti strap dress. The internet went crazy: people saying she was inappropriately dressed and people saying we should all shut up about her dress because you go girl, or whatever. Here's the deal: Society has norms, and when you go against those norms you're going to get backlash. There's a reason that employees at Target wear khaki pants and red shirts, and the cashier at Burger King wears a uniform and a reason you put on a suit when you go for a job interview. Your clothing is a symbol that indicates who you are. You don't see emo teens wearing pink party dresses, and you don't see biker gangs wearing tuxedos. Everyone

  • Scientists think they've found the origin of all earthy life

    Four billion years ago, sometime around Earth's 560 millionth birthday, Luca was born. Luca is your great-to-an-infinite-degree grandmother and grandfather, as it is your dog's and your goldfish's and your ficus'. Every living thing on Earth owes it existence to Luca, whose very name stands for "Last Universal Common Ancestor." It is the origin of life on Earth, from which the rest of us evolved. And now scientists believe they have mapped a genetic picture of the qualities that would have belonged to Luca, giving us a startling look at how life on Earth might have begun: ...By comparing their sequence of DNA letters, genes can be arranged in evolutionary family trees, a property that enabled

  • Porsche Left a Cheeky Message On the 911 GT3 Acura Bought to Develop the NSX

    A note to any automakers benchmarking cars built by Porsche: They will find you, and they'll probably leave you goofy messages hidden somewhere in the car. That's what happened when the 911 GT3 Acura was using to help develop the NSX's steering went back to the dealer for a recall service. As many automakers do, Acura bought its 911 GT3 anonymously, but Porsche was able to figure out who it belonged to when it looked at the car's black-box data, according to Automotive News. It was at this point that Porsche decided to have a little bit of fun with its counterparts at Acura. "Good luck Honda from Porsche. See you on the other side," read a note left under the 911 GT3's engine cover, according
