    He needed a kidney. A classmate from 50 years ago whom he barely knew answered the call

    Charlie Ball and Kenneth Walker went to school together more than 50 years ago and now live on opposite coasts. But despite the time and distance between them, the two are now sharing more than high school memories. Walker and Ball are alumni of Archbishop Carroll High School in Washington, D.C. Even though they both graduated in 1969, the two never really spoke to one another. But when Walker sent out an email last year to his old classmates asking for a kidney, Ball said he recognized the name...

    Russia is "laughing" at Trump, former ambassador to ex-Soviet Union said

    President Donald Trump's policy toward Russia has puzzled world leaders and amused officials in Moscow, according to the former ambassador to the states that succeeded the Soviet Union in the 1990s. Stephen Sestanovich, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and the former ambassador-at-large for the ex-USSR states, told The New York Times on Tuesday that "Trump seems to think that if he accepts what his advisers recommend on even days of the month and rejects their recomm...

    Mattis Wanted Congressional Approval Before Striking Syria. He Was Overruled.

    Defense Secretary Jim Mattis urged President Trump to get congressional approval before the United States launched airstrikes against Syria last week, but was overruled by Mr. Trump, who wanted a rapid and dramatic response, military and administration officials said. Mr. Trump, the officials said, wanted to be seen as backing up a series of bellicose tweets with action, but was warned that an overly aggressive response risked igniting a wider war with Russia.

    80 New Genes Identified in Hunt for Depression's DNA Roots

    Depression affects approximately 322 million people worldwide, making it the largest contributor to global disability. However, the fact that depression is an actual illness rather than a mood is only beginning to gain traction. Advances in the genetic basis of depression is helping that happen: In 2015 scientists discovered the first two genetic markers linked to the development of major depressive disorder, and on Monday, researchers reported in a new study that the genetic link is even more p...

    Recycling hope for plastic-hungry enzyme

    Scientists have improved a naturally occurring enzyme which can digest some of our most commonly polluting plastics. PET, the strong plastic commonly used in bottles, takes hundreds of years to break down in the environment. The modified enzyme, known as PETase, can start breaking down the same material in just a few days. This could revolutionize the recycling process, allowing plastics to be re-used more effectively.

    Hackers have a brand new scam, and it involves the service preparing your tax returns

    The deadline to file your taxes is rapidly approaching, but cyber criminals have already been hard at work trying to cash in with fraudulent tax returns. This tax season, experts say instead of targeting individual tax payers, scam artists are targeting tax professionals. "One of the challenges that we're seeing this year is that as tax professionals and the I.R.S. have become more and more sophisticated, so too have the adversaries," said Caleb Barlow, IBM Security's vice pr...

    Trump furious after France, Germany expelled fewer Russians than US: report

    President Trump was reportedly upset last month when he learned that France, Germany and other European allies had expelled fewer Russian diplomats than the U.S. The Washington Post reported that Trump explained to administration officials that the U.S. would “match” the number of expulsions doled out by European allies in the wake of a chemical attack on an ex-Russian spy living in the United Kingdom.

    Bill would remove statute of limitations for sex offenses in...

    If American culture is finally grappling with the realities of sexual abuse, the law may not be far behind. A bill introduced in the Minnesota Legislature last month would remove the statute of limitations for felony sex crimes, meaning victims can report when they are ready and not when the law says they need to be, supporters say. "Reporting one's own experience to the police is a choice that every survivor deserves, and they deserve to have that choice their entire lives," Sara...

    Louisiana law to ban sex with animals wins Senate vote 25 - 10

    The state Senate has approved a bill designed to make it clear that bestiality is illegal in Louisiana. A law on the books prohibits "crimes against nature," but it also outlaws so-called sodomy and was ruled unconstitutional in 2003. New Orleans Senator JP Morrell says it's important that the state has a way to arrest someone for having sex with animals. He told fellow lawmakers, "God forbid you vote against this bill, good luck explaining it." Ten senators did vote aga...
