Tennis and fashion are a match in Paris
Well before Andre Agassi caused a stir with his stone-washed denim shorts at the French Open, the clay courts at Roland Garros in Paris were a sporting catwalk for fashion experimentation. Tennis fashion has developed from the corset-less, flowing dress worn by "La Divine" S...

She’s a pole vaulter, and she’s blind
For three years, Charlotte Brown has been chasing a medal by trying to jump over a bar she couldn't see. The senior pole vaulter finally cleared that bar, earning a third-place finish at the Texas state high school championships. And proudly joining her on the podium as the ...

Man survives a nail in the eye
There must have been a four-leaf clover in those weeds. A 27-year-old landscaper escaped with barely a scratch after a nearly 3-inch nail hurtled into his eye when he accidentally hit it with a weed-whacker. Doctors who removed the nail at Boston's Massachusetts Gener...

What would happen if a big asteroid hit the moon?
You asked us, what would happen if a large asteroid hit the moon. Thousands of meteorites have impacted the moon over the last few billion years and without an atmosphere like we have here on Earth to break up and burn these hurtling objects, the rocks have left their mark. ...

Is it easier to name a child than a horse?
Coming up with a clever name for a racehorse can be a challenge — and not just creatively. While parents simply put their choice of names for their child on a birth certificate and are done, registering a thoroughbred foal is not so easy. The owners can submit up to...

Fitting rooms go high tech
Imagine a fitting room with a "smart" mirror that suggests jeans to go with the red shirt you brought in. It snaps a video so you can compare the image side-by-side with other colorful shirts you try on. It might even show you how the shirt will fit without having to change. ...

Sailor gets snoring sea lion shipmate
Mother's Day may have been a bit of a bust for a baby sea lion in San Diego — and a bit of a surprise, too. Michael Duffy, 48, said he was on his 41-foot Kettenburg boat "Elixir" at the San Diego Yacht Club when he awoke at 2:30 a.m. on Mother's Day to sounds of sneezing a...

Rugged slopes keep extreme skiers stoked
On a postcard spring Saturday in New Hampshire's White Mountains, a boisterous band of pilgrims some 2,000 strong is preparing for their own brand of funky and fearless worship. Alone and in groups, they leave Pinkham Notch and trek 3.1 miles up a narrow, mud- and snow-cover...

What's up with willpower and why don't I have it?
You asked us, what's up with willpower and why don't I have it? I know it doesn't always feel like it, but we all actually have will power. Like a muscle though, it can be super strong or puny and weak, so here are a couple things that can boost or zap your sense of self-co...
