Pope Gives a Lift to 2 Kids in St. Peter's Square
Pope Gives a Lift to 2 Kids in St. Peter's Square
April 17, 2014

Pope Francis has given a lift to two lucky kids during his general audience in St. Peter's Square.

A particularly jovial Francis hopped off his white, open-air car Wednesday to greet a group of fifth graders from Perugia who presented him with a T-shirt from their school. Seemingly joking, Francis asked if any of them wanted to take a spin through the square.

"Me! Me! Me!" they yelled.

Francis picked 11-year-olds Livio Bastianelli and Davide Maria Bianchi and the two hopped aboard.

Bastianelli told The Associated Press it was a ride of a lifetime: "I was really excited. That never happens!"

Michael Phelps Coming Out of Retirement
Michael Phelps Coming Out of Retirement
April 15, 2014

Don't expect the same Michael Phelps in his return to swimming after a nearly two-year retirement.

Even if Phelps' comeback is a success, it will be different this time around.

No more swimming seven or eight events at the Olympics or world championships. No more grueling individual medleys.

This time, it's about taking on fewer and shorter races than the 22-time Olympic medalist did in his prime.

At 28, Phelps is far from being too old to dive into the pool. In recent years, swimmers have successfully competed into their 30s and in the case of Dara Torres, who was 41 at her last Olympics in 2008, won medals.

Phelps will compete for the first time since the 2012 London Games at a meet in Mesa, Ariz., on April 24-26.

Bob Bowman, the swimmer's longtime coach, told The Associated Press on Monday that Phelps is entered in three events - the 50- and 100-meter freestyles and the 100 butterfly.

"I think he's just going to test the waters a little bit and see how it goes," Bowman said. "I wouldn't say it's a full-fledged comeback."

Safety concerns led to Nevada cow release, federal land managers say
Safety concerns led to Nevada cow release, federal land managers say
April 14, 2014

Federal land managers say "escalating tensions" led them to release all 400 or so head of cattle rounded up on public land in southern Nevada from a rancher who has refused to recognize their authority.

Bureau of Land Management Chief Neil Kornze announced an abrupt halt to the weeklong roundup just hours before the release.

"Based on information about conditions on the ground and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concerns about the safety of employees and members of the public," Kornze said in a statement.

Hundreds of states' rights protesters, including militia members, showed up at corrals outside Mesquite to demand the animals' return to rancher Cliven Bundy. Some protesters were armed with handguns and rifles at the corrals and at an earlier nearby rally.

Las Vegas Police Lt. Dan Zehnder said the showdown was resolved with no injuries and no violence. Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie was able to negotiate a resolution after talking with Bundy, he said.

The fight between Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management widened into a debate about states' rights and federal land-use policy. The dispute that ultimately triggered the roundup dates to 1993, when the bureau cited concern for the federally protected tortoise in the region. The bureau revoked Bundy's grazing rights after he stopped paying grazing fees and disregarded federal court orders to remove his animals.

The Heartbleed Hit List: The Passwords You Need to Change Right Now
The Heartbleed Hit List: The Passwords You Need to Change Right Now
April 13, 2014

An encryption flaw called the Heartbleed bug is already being called one of the biggest security threats the Internet has ever seen. The bug has affected many popular websites and services - ones you might use every day, like Gmail and Facebook - and could have quietly exposed your sensitive account information (such as passwords and credit card numbers) over the past two years.

But it hasn't always been clear which sites have been affected. Mashable reached out to various companies included on a long list of websites that could potentially have the flaw. Below, we've rounded up the responses from some of the most popular social, email, banking and commerce sites on the web.

Some Internet companies that were vulnerable to the bug have already updated their servers with a security patch to fix the issue. This means you'll need to go in and change your passwords immediately for these sites. Even that is no guarantee that your information wasn't already compromised, but there's no indication that hackers knew about the exploit before this week.

Although changing your password regularly is always good practice, if a site or service hasn't yet patched the problem, your information will still be vulnerable.

Click the link below for an up-to-date list of website passwords you need to change!

Sebelius is out, but ObamaCare's problems are here to stay
Sebelius is out, but ObamaCare's problems are here to stay
April 12, 2014

Kathleen Sebelius, the face of ObamaCare, is out. If only the Affordable Care Act were going with her.

Unhappily, as much as Republicans may cheer the departure of the Health and Human Services Secretary, who oversaw the bungled roll-out of President Obama's signature health care legislation, the damaging law will continue to infect the economy like a great virus.

Sebelius may have drastically mismanaged the start-up of ObamaCare, but she cannot be blamed for the law's fundamental flaws.

Australian PM Tony Abbott remains confident signals are from MH370
Australian PM Tony Abbott remains confident signals are from MH370
April 11, 2014

Australia's Prime Minister on Saturday reiterated his "high degree of confidence" that acoustic signals picked up by searchers in the Indian Ocean are from the missing Malaysian plane's black box.

But Tony Abbott warned that locating the flight data recorders beneath nearly three miles of water would be a "massive, massive task."

"It is likely to continue for a long time to come," he told journalists in China, where he is on a diplomatic visit.

He applauded his nation's work in handling the operation, saying Chinese officials appreciate Australia's "transparency and candor" in the search for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

"I think it's to our country's credit that we've approached it that way, Abbott said.
