Days after Floridas school shooting, the search for answers ramps up

Its a tweet shared nearly 65,000 times: "Deeper even than the gun problem is this: boys are broken."

Trump threatens to expose Oprah in late-night tweet

Lets say youre president: The United States is reeling after a horrific school shooting in Florida, Russia is actively trying to sabotage your democracy, and Congress is basically dysfunctional.

Norways dominating the Winter Olympics. Why?

Norway is kicking our red, white and blue rear ends all over Pyeongchang, South Korea at the 2018 Winter Olympics. The Nordic nation with roughly the population of the Detroit area has 26 medals and nine golds — an unprecedented amount of #winning.

Paging Dr. Google

Thanks to your search history, Google already knows what’s on your mind and now the tech giant can figure out what’s in your heart. Well, make that the health of your heart. Researchers at Google said they were able to predict the likelihood someone will suffer a heart attack or stroke by using artificial intelligence to examine images of their retinas. Google presented its findings Monday in the online medical journal, Nature Biomedical Engineering. Although the company cautions that more research is needed, it says the method is as accurate as more invasive measures. Bedside manner aside, will people be willing to share their medical information with Dr. Google?
