    If your dog travels with you, it might be better to avoid Clapham Common Tube station for the next couple of weeks. The London subway station is overrun with cats. They are everywhere – staring at you with their steely cat eyes from giant posters on the wall and from stick-ons on turnstiles.

    OKLAHOMA CITY – After millions of dollars were mistakenly cut from state agencies last fiscal year, those agencies are getting a partial refund.

    For centuries, scientists believed all giraffes fell under one species. A new study changes all that, showing the lanky creatures are not one species, but rather four different ones. The findings appeared in the journal Current Biology this week, highlighting the need for further studies of the four genetically isolated species, according to the Giraffe Conservation Foundation, which was part of the research. Until now, the gentle African mammals were all classified under the Giraffa camelopardalis species. The new study […]

    It wasn’t supposed to end like this. Last year, Katie Prager, who has cystic fibrosis, fought relentlessly to get a lung transplant as Medicare, Medicaid and her hospital quibbled over money. After CNN brought her predicament to light, she got that transplant. Her husband, Dalton Prager, who also has cystic fibrosis, received a transplant, too. The couple — she’s 26 and he’s 25 — dreamed that after their transplants they’d travel together to every state and write a book about […]
