• Archaeologists make surprise find under Mayan temple

    (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

  • Huge, once-hated fish now seen as weapon against Asian carp

    It's a toothy giant that can grow longer than a horse and heavier than a refrigerator, a fearsome-looking prehistoric fish that plied U.S. waters from the Gulf of Mexico to Illinois until it disappeared from many states a half-century ago. Persecuted by anglers and deprived of places to spawn, the alligator gar - with a head that resembles an alligator and two rows of needlelike teeth - survived primarily in southern states in the tributaries of the Mississippi River and Gulf of Mexico after being declared extinct in several states farther north. To many, it was a freak, a "trash fish" that threatened sportfish, something to be exterminated.

  • What A Wife Says It Was Like To Find Out Her Husband Of 23 Years Had A Girlfriend

    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?

  • If This Is Cara Delevingne's Engagement Ring, She's 1 Very Lucky Girl

    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

  • A 3-year-old climbed into the washing machine and died. Then, her mother was arrested.

    A Sunday afternoon in October, while her mother - who was using prescription tranquilizers - was napping in their Arkansas home, 3-year-old Alexis Haney climbed into the washing machine and closed the lid. The young children in the home told police they were used to helping with the laundry. The washing machine, which the family used as a dirty clothes hamper, was programmed to switch on when the lid closed. After the clothes were clean, one child would climb into the open machine and pass them to another, who would then toss them into the dryer. When Alexis closed the lid, hot water started to pour in. Authorities said she died from “scaling and thermal injuries,” according to a probable cause

  • Trump draws an even harder line on tax returns

    Four years later, Trump happens to be facing extremely similar questions. Every major-party presidential nominee since Watergate has, of their own volition, voluntarily released their tax returns for public scrutiny. Trump, however, is refusing - despite having said he would release his returns, despite the precedent set by others, and despite the obvious need given multiple ongoing controversies. Van Susteren pressed Trump, asking why he is unwilling to release tax returns that are no longer under audit, even if he still refuses to publicize his most recent documents.   “Most people don’t care about it,” Trump responded. “I’ve had very, very little pressure.” The GOP nominee may not appreciate
