A Florida Keys man was arrested after deputies say he robbed his girlfriend and then ate some of the money that he stole, according to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
During the ride to jail, a deputy noticed a strange sound in his backseat and saw Parrado chewing on a mouth full of cash, authorities said. More cash was found his underwear where deputies believe he hid it. The deputy pulled over and tried to save some of the cash but only $277 was recovered from the $750 that his girlfriend said he stole.
The discovery of tiny carbon-rich balls and tunnels inside a Martian meteorite has once again raised the possibility that the Red Planet was teeming with primitive life millions of years ago. The meteorite, which fell to Earth during the Stone Age, contains microscopic burrows and spheres that resemble the marks microorganisms leave when they eat through rocks on Earth, scientists report in the journal Astrobiology this month. What's more, these features seem to have been pressed into the Mars rock before it was hurled off the Red Planet by an impact event, the researchers add. read more
SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine (Reuters) - Crimea's parliament voted to join Russia on Thursday and its Moscow-backed government set a referendum within 10 days on the decision in a dramatic escalation of the crisis over the Ukrainian Black Sea peninsula.

A 30,000-year-old giant virus has been revived from the frozen Siberian tundra, sparking concern that increased mining and oil drilling in rapidly warming northern latitudes could disturb dormant microbial life that could one day prove harmful to man. The latest find, described online Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, appears to belong to a new family of mega-viruses that infect only amoeba. But its revival in a laboratory stands as "a proof of principle that we could eventually resurrect active infectious viruses from different periods," said the study's lead author, microbiologist Jean-Michel Claverie of Aix-Marseille University in France.
The Obama administration is set to announce another major delay in implementing the Affordable Care Act, easing election pressure on Democrats.
Prolonging the "keep your plan" fix will avoid another wave of health policy cancellations otherwise expected this fall.
The cancellations would have created a firestorm for Democratic candidates in the last, crucial weeks before Election Day.
