Rescue Cat Saves Family's Home from Potentially Devastating Fire

10 hours ago

Adopting a flea-bitten rescue cat may have been the best decision Matt Clayton has ever made. At first, he wanted a dog. But when the Melbourne man went to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals three weeks ago, he and his family brought home Tilly the tabby, who recently detected a potentially devastating fire in his roof. While Clayton's wife and children were at school, he attempted to leave their home. Tilly stopped him dead in his tracks. "She was looking up at me, looking up at the roof - meow, meow, meow," he told Melbourne's 7 News. »

Adrienne Bailon Regrets Her Rob Kardashian Association

11 hours ago

Not only is Rob Kardashian's name permanently inked on Adrienne Bailon's posterior, but he has also left an indelible mark on her career - a negative one, the former Cheetah Girls star and The Real host says. "To be stuck with that Kardashian label, that was so hurtful to me and to my career," Kardashian's ex tells September's Latina magazine. "I probably realized that too late." It's been five years since the Bailon and Kardashian were together, yet apparently the singer-actress, 30, remains linked to him in the public's mind because of her 13 episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. »

Mom of Two Jennifer Huston Vanishes Without a Trace in Oregon

12 hours ago

The surveillance video is unremarkable, even mundane. On July 24, a 38-year-old blonde woman entered a Rite Aid pharmacy in Newberg, Oregon, about 45 miles south of Portland. Seemingly relaxed, she bought a bottle of Gatorade, a package of trail mix, and a box of over-the-counter sleeping pills. And then, she vanished without a trace. Jennifer Huston, a married mother with two small children, hasn't been seen in nearly a week, leaving behind a frantic family and baffled police. Her bank accounts and credit cards have remained unused. Her cell phone has been turned off. "As of this time, there is no »

See These Cocoa Farmers Taste Chocolate for the Very First Time

14 hours ago

It's one of the paradoxes of globalization - many of the people who produce the raw materials for products we take for granted can't afford to buy those products themselves. Take the case of cocoa farmers in the Ivory Coast, the world's leading exporter of cocoa beans. (The country produces more than 30% of all the beans grown worldwide.) As this CNN infographic explains, only 3% of the money you pay for a chocolate bar makes it back to the farmers who grow the beans. The rest goes to the people further up the supply chain, the ones who transform the beans »
