    2-Year-Old Boy With Deadly Cancer Gets an Early Christmas From His Neighbors

    Five weeks ago, Brody Allen’s parents were told that their 2-year-old son’s rare form of brain cancer meant he had two months to live.

    Tesla workers speak out: 'Anything pro-union is shut down really fast'

    For two years Dezzimond Vaughn was a well-regarded worker at the Tesla factory in Lathrop, California.

    Research shows that knowingly taking placebos can be highly beneficial

    On Amazon, you can shell out about $15 to buy pills made of cellulose, titanium dioxide, gelatin, and dye. None of these ingredients have any medical effect, but customers report taking these pills for pain relief, to reduce excessive sweating, and even to quit smoking. It’s not surprising, really. Medical quackery has a long and proud history, and so long as there’s gullible people, there will be somebody selling snake oil. But here’s the rub: Right on the bottle, in big, blue letters is ...

    North Korea Cuts ICBMs Out of Military Parade

    North Korea celebrated its 70th anniversary with a military parade marked by the absence of any intercontinental ballistic missiles, noteworthy as the event comes amid a monthslong detente between Pyongyang and Washington that has appeared precarious at times in recent weeks.

    Global warming tops the agenda as climate brings down a third Australian prime minister

    Australia has two pressing environmental problems: climate change and finding a leader who can tackle it.

Yet late last month, the country’s attempts to make some modest changes to its energy policy to help reduce greenhouse-gas emissions blew up an internal storm in the ruling Liber...

    A ban on five neonicotinoid pesticides enters into force in France on Saturday, placing the country at the forefront of a campaign against chemicals blamed for decimating critical populations of crop-pollinating bees.
