    Alice Cooper (jokingly) runs for president: ‘I can do nothing as well as they can do nothing’

    NEW YORK (CNN) — Alice Cooper has been running for president as a joke since 1972 and the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famer is now bringing a dose of satire to the 2016 election. Cooper told CNN that this year his campaign slogan is “I can do nothing as well as they can do nothing,” his running mate is Tom Hanks (without Hanks’ knowledge) and his platform is nonexistent. “I think the idea that I honestly have no platform […]

    Knuckle-cracking is actually good for you, study finds

    For the past 15 years, Tanya Johnson has been driving her boss nuts. It’s not her job skills — Dr. Robert Szabo says Johnson is an excellent nurse — but rather her incessant knuckle-cracking that makes him want to strangle her. “I kept telling her to stop, that it was bad for her,” Szabo said. You’d think Johnson might have listened, given that Szabo is a hand surgeon at the UC Davis Medical Center and former president of the American […]

    Heartbreaking video of Syrian boy shows horrors of war

    Aleppo, Syria – His name is Omran. The image of him, bloodied and covered with dust, sitting silently in an ambulance awaiting help, is another stark reminder of the toll of the war in Syria. He is young — one witness puts him at four, perhaps five years old, but his chubby arms and legs and the way he clings to the man who pulled him from the rubble of his bombed-out home suggest he is still a toddler. He […]
