Presidential hopefuls kick off 2016 campaigns
In a presidential campaign, you only get one Opening Day. For Ted Cruz, it was a simple speech on a college campus: no notes, no teleprompter — and no choice for the students required to be there. Rand Paul packed a hotel ballroom with loyalists and dazzled them with video...

Would planes be safer without pilots?
To improve airline safety, maybe we need to remove the pilots. That radical idea is decades away, if it ever becomes a reality. Following the intentional crashing of Germanwings Flight 9525 by the co-pilot, a long-running debate over autonomous, or independent, jets is resur...

Dogs bond with owners just by looking
Just by gazing at their owners, dogs can trigger a response in their masters' brains that helps them bond, a study says. And owners can do a similar trick in return, researchers found. This two-way street evidently began when dogs were domesticated long ago, because i...

Group on mission to “save the soap”
Shawn Seipler is on a mission to save lives with soap. It began about seven years ago as a tiny operation with a few friends and family in a single car garage in Orlando, Florida, where they used meat grinders, potato peelers and cookers to recycle used soap into fresh bars....

Baby orangutan gets help from his sister
Fleece jackets, piles of hay, a fuzzy stuffed animal sloth and a lot of fruit were on Bobbi Gordon's shopping list when she became a surrogate mother to a big-eyed, spikey-haired little boy. A handful of animal keepers at Salt Lake City's Hogle Zoo found themselves with a ti...
