A 9-year-old girl with a big heart and nimble fingers raised $47,000 for a sick friend by selling rubber band bracelets on Facebook.

Bethany Walker wanted to help her friend, Anne Marie Cox, of Benton Arkansas, who needed a saltwater therapy pool to ease the skin condition epidermolysis bullosa.

“Any kind of friction or trauma to the skin causes the skin to blister and come off," Anne Marie's mother told ABC. "Being out in the summertime is just not going to happen." Public pools are off limits, too.

The family failed to raise enough money to build a pool. So Bethany decided to raise money by selling rubber band jewelry through a Facebook group called "Bracelets by Bethany."

A large drop in bluefish mercury levels suggest a healthier seafood supply – and that U.S. coal regulations are working.

Mercury levels in bluefish caught off the U.S. Atlantic coast have officially dropped 43% since 1972, according to a new study in Environmental Science & Technology.

Scientists say the drop is due to federal restrictions on coal emissions that have resulted in less mercury being transported by rainfall into the ocean.

Emissions from the top 100 U.S. electric power producers have decreased by 50 percent during 2000-2012, according to a Natural Resources Defense Council report

The lower mercury levels are promising for bluefish and other predatory fish like tuna

Kansas City Animal Control found Harry, a neglected chow chow, chained in a backyard late last month and brought him to KC Pet Project, an animal shelter in Missouri, ABC News reported. The dog, who had been outside without food or water, was in terrible shape.

SALEM, Oregon - Oregon will soon offer free community college enrollment. The Oregon state legislature passed a bill last week with bipartisan support that ensures that if eligible students apply for federal grants for community college, the states will cover the remainder of their tuition.

To qualify, students must have applied for the state and federal aid grants available to them, lived in Oregon for at least one year, and maintained a grade point average of at least 2.5. They also must enroll in community college within six months of completing their high school degree or its equivalent.

The program could have wide-reaching effects in Oregon, since there are roughly 70,000 Oregonia

THE TODAY SHOW on NBC mornings, is four hours long. 84% of its broadcast contains commercials and promotions! The remaining 16% content is all too often less interesting than the commercials! Why the hell do we put up with it? I mean, it's capitalism gone amok. I'd nearly rather die than be forced to watch Matt Lauer every morning.

Most people just put up with it, won't buy a DVR to bypass the steady deluge of moronic soap bubbles. They smile and some even plan for the future when the world around them is falling apart and I'm not talking about sinkholes.

Not everyone loves science. They'd rather read little signs on Facebook with shared comments declaring: SHARE IF YOUR DOG LOVES YOU,
