Humpback whales are normally pretty solitary—scientists used to call groups of 10 to 20 “large.” Now they’re congregating in groups of 20 to 200 off the coast of South Africa.

    Video may shed new light on Ferguson police shooting

    When 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014, police officers shared a video showing Brown with his hands around a shopkeeper's neck as he makes off with a carton of cigarillos.

    Meet the Man Who Wants to Eradicate Hangovers by 2050

    Scientist David Nutt believes a chemical called “alcosynth” is the secret to drinking without regret. As Prohibition showed, taking booze away from the public is wildly unpopular with just about everyone but Bible-thumpers and bootleggers.
