    SAINT-DENIS, Reunion Island — The discovery of debris on a remote island in the Indian Ocean is “a very significant development” in the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, but it’s too soon to say whether the part is from the missing aircraft, Australian Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss said Thursday. Authorities are treating it as “a major lead,” Truss told reporters. MH370 is the only Boeing 777 that disappeared over water and is unaccounted for, according to the Aviation […]

    Yahoo’s Livetext App Combines Texting and Live Video

    NEW YORK  — Yahoo has taken all of the viral features of the most popular messaging apps and combined it into one monster of a service called Livetext. Livetext lets users text each other while conducting a video call — with a catch: there’s no audio. The thought is that audio inhibits “in the moment” video chats, but people still want to see one another while texting. It’s a risky bet and Yahoo is targeting young users who may want […]

    Walter Palmer, a dentist from Minnesota, says he thought everything was above board with the lion hunt he paid to go on in Zimbabwe earlier this month.

It was Cecil, one of Africa’s best known lions and a major tourist draw for Zimbabwe. The 13-year-old black mane lion suffered a slow and painful death, according to the Zimbabwe […]

The 30-second video begins innocently enough: As the escalator in a shopping mall almost reaches the top, a woman in a white shirt and black skirt lifts up her young son to get ready to step off. But as she does, a metal panel suddenly collapses under her feet and she falls into the gap. Struggling with […]
