Born a sharecropper named Riley B. King in Itta Bena, Mississippi, B.B. King went on to become a millionaire, honored by presidents, who influenced generations of musicians worldwide as the king of blues.

After his parents died, King tried his hand at farming when he was just 14-years-old, but found he could make more money singing in churches and on radio stations around Mississippi, Arkansas and Tennessee.

He picked up the nickname “Beale Street Blues Boy” King while working as a disc jockey and singer for a Memphis, Tennessee radio station, which he shortened to “Blues Boy” and, eventually, just B.B. King.

By the 1950s, King had landed a record contract, put together a band and b

One daring nonagenarian took to the skies to relive her remarkable past.

British World War II pilot Joy Lofthouse had the chance, earlier this month, to fly an iconic plane she flew during the war -- the Spitfire, BBC News reported. The 92-year-old's flight took place about 70 years since she had last flown the legendary aircraft.

"It was lovely. It was perfect, of course," Lofthouse told BBC after her flight. "It made me feel quite young."

Lofthouse was one of about 168 trailblazing women who were employed by the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA), an organization that helped transport aircraft, during the war, the outlet reported. The 92-year-old told BBC that she was particularly exci

HOUSTON - The Big 12's struggles may begin and end with the NFL draft, but the space between is filled with a myriad of issues. Funding, or rather the lack of it, has caused the conference to scramble to keep up with the PAC-12 and the SEC by improving their position in the recruiting arms race. Despite the addition of former recruiting mogul Charlie Strong to the University of Texas, the conferences' show horse, the Big 12's troubles receiving significant recognition has been well documented by NCAA pundits. That recognition is largely affected by the lack of rivalries, viewership and programs in the conference.

For nearly a decade, the Big 12 has been shut out of the national champi

Students of all ages have a lot to learn from this determined octogenarian.

Rosa Salgado graduated this past weekend from Miami-Dade College in Florida with an associate of arts degree in education, according to CBS Miami. But Salgado isn't your typical college student -- she's 80 years old, and has received her diploma along with two of her grandchildren.

The 80-year-old hopes that her story will inspire others to see the importance of education.

“I would say to students, young, old or in the middle, that every day they have to fight to learn because learning is wonderful,” Salgado told the Miami Herald. “And I know there are a lot of th

A new survey finds that 60 percent of Americans who have reached their 100th birthday say they do not “feel old.” On average, they feel more than two decades younger than they are.

They point to a positive attitude as the key to a long, happy life.

According to the tenth annual UnitedHealthcare poll of 100 adults over 100, more than 60% of centenarians see themselves as “very positive people.”

“Year after year, we hear from centenarians that there is a correlation between healthy aging and a healthy mindset,” said Rhonda Randall, D.O., chief medical officer of UnitedHealthcare Retiree Solutions. “It’s a good reminder for us all to take care of our mental, emotional and social health

Six Baltimore officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray from an injury he received while in police custody. Five of the officers surrendered to face criminal charges on Friday.

Baltimore State’s Atty. Marilyn Mosby said on Friday that Gray’s death had been officially ruled a homicide and that the investigation by city police and her office had found probable cause to charge all six officers.

“No one is above the law,” said Mosby, standing on the marble steps of Baltimore’s War Memorial Building. As she announced the indictments, several citizens standing behind television cameras jubilantly shouted.

Gray’s death from a spinal injury put Baltimore at the center of protests over r

A 60-year-old homeless woman named Smokie has been sleeping outside in the dirt a few doors down from a man named Elvis Summers.

Most mornings, she stops by Elvis’s Los Angeles apartment and asks if he has any recyclables for her. Through these conversation, they struck up a friendship.

One morning, Elvis saw a news article about a man in Oakland who has been making tiny houses out of discarded material. He was inspired to put off paying a few bills so he could buy the lumber and hardware to make Smokie a brand new shelter. It took him five days to build, and now, for the first time in ten years, Smokie has a place to hang the sign, ‘Home Sweet Home.’

“I had nowhere to really build

More than 300 people in 27 counties statewide participated in a radio operator exercise centered at the Oregon Office of Emergency Management, April 25. The Amateur Radio Emergency Service "QuakeEX I" exercise took place the same day a 7.8 earthquake struck off the coast of Nepal.

"Oregon is due for a Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake that could be even larger than the one that struck Nepal," said Kim Lippert, Public Information Officer for the Oregon Office of Emergency Management. "An earthquake of that size will cut standard forms of communication, making amateur radio operators critical."

The amateur radio event hosted by the Oregon Office of Emergency Management tested amateur
