    Marlins still feel loss of Jose Fernandez one year after the light turned off

    Jose Fernandez's knack for connecting with children was one of his greatest gifts. The people who spent time around him at the ballpark each day recall the smiles he elicited over the dugout roof and the buzz he generated when he came out for pregame stretching. Brian Schneider, the Miami Marlins' catching coach, saw that indomitable spirit on display when Fernandez was playing, and his family continues to feel Fernandez's presence on the anniversary of the pitcher's death.

As you may be able to tell, Christian conspiracy theorist David Meade's prediction that the world as we know it would come to an end this past Saturday was incorrect. Consequently, Meade, whose qualifications include writing books and, get this, writing things on a website, now states October 15 is definitely Doomsday. "The actual event of the beginning of the Tribulation occurs on October 15," he says on his site.

    Google and Amazon need to learn to get along

    Google and Amazon have a funny relationship with each other. Amazon’s line of tablets, the Kindle Fire series, are powered by a heavily skinned Android operating system. And yet, Amazon has long maintained its own app ecosystem, and pitted it against the Play Store. Noticeably absent from Amazon’s app store is anything having to do with Google – Maps, Gmail, YouTube, etc. On the other side, Google devices, like the Chromecast, don’t work with Amazon hardware. For a cord-cutter like me, w...

    77-year-old sentenced to 10 years for growing marijuana

    Two plainclothes detectives were driving a white unmarked pickup truck through a heavily forested road in Polk County on an overcast day in March 2012. A woman had called the sheriff's office in December. Her identity had been stolen, she said, and new credit cards were being sent to an address in Polk County. The detectives couldn't find the home in the rural area 45 miles north of Springfield, so instead they stopped at the next closest address — the home of Charles Frederick White.
