Scientists recently revealed the catastrophic history of Lake Catalina, which appears primed once again to outburst billions of gallons of freshwater. Through satellite images, researchers at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark pieced together four massive outburst floods over the past 50 years. The satellite photos show the outbursts of fresh water took place between 1966 and 2012 when ice that dammed Lake Catalina in Greenland failed. The outbursts of water are estimated to have been between 6.7 and 9 billion gallons of water released in one instance. Now, it appears the lake is primed for another catastrophic release of water in the next couple years. The next outburst is certainly building
DEAR AMY: My fiance and I are in our late 50s. His late wife (the mother of his 10-year-old daughter) died suddenly and unexpectedly - six years ago. His wife was younger than he, and he has not dated anyone since her death. That is, until me. Before his wife died, she shared a bed with their daughter. He slept alone.

According to Laci’s autopsy, by the time the body was discovered in April (more than four months after her disappearance), it had been so far along in the process of decomposition, it was impossible for the coroner
The Powerball lottery jackpot has reached $700 million, the second-highest in US history. If there's a winner or winners in Wednesday's drawing, they will be given a choice of how to take the money: either as an annuity or a lump sum. Choosing the annuity option distributes the jackpot over 30 payments, which increase by 5% each year to keep up with the cost of living. The lump sum means taking the entire cash value paid at once, but there's a catch: The lump sum is less than the value of the total jackpot. For Wednesday's drawing, the lump sum would be $443.3 million. Either is a staggering amount of money. But winning can quickly turn into a nightmare if you mismanage your jackpot, which past
