AMMAN, Jordan ­­— At the southern tip of the Dead Sea, Sameer Mahadin recalls when the shoreline was visible from the shaded veranda of his farmhouse. The once 10-minute walk to the water’s edge now takes an hour trekking over cracked, salt-encrusted soil.

The Dead Sea is dying rapidly. The biblical body of water lying between Israel and Jordan is retreating by more than three feet a year, creating sinkholes that swallow up buildings and roads, and forcing the rich seaside landscape on which the tourism industry relies to fade into memory.

It is the saltiest sea on earth. Some experts believe it will be gone by 2050, while others say it will never fully disappear but survive at a fract

LAKE PRESTON, Australia — The cows's name is Knickers. Not really a cow because it's a steer who is incredibly huge.

The black-and-white Holstein Friesian has gained international fame after photos were published of the 6-foot-4-inch steer standing tall above a herd of brown cattle in Western Australia state.

Owner Geoff Pearson said Knickers was too heavy to go to the slaughterhouse.

"We have a high turnover of cattle, and he was lucky enough to stay behind," Pearson said.

PORTSMOUTH, Va. — At the foot of the Chesapeake Bay in southeast Virginia lies a Naval shipyard older than the nation itself. One of the country’s first warships was built here in 1799. So was the first battleship, and decades later the first aircraft carrier.

Over the past three centuries, Norfolk Naval Shipyard has been blockaded and burnt to the ground, only to be rebuilt again and again. Today, it’s one of four Navy shipyards that maintain the nation’s nuclear-powered submarines and aircraft carriers, which enable the Pentagon to respond quickly to military and humanitarian crises across the globe.

But the shipyard now faces its greatest existential threat: rising seas and extreme

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Tuesday went after President Trump, calling him "the most racist, sexist, homophobic, bigoted president in history" during a campaign event for Maryland gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous (D). Campaign staffers "are working to make sure that the agenda of the most racist, sexist, homophobic, bigoted president in history will go nowhere because Democrats will control the House and the Senate," Sanders said of campaigns across the country.

Trump's rhetoric has been thrust to the center of a national debate over the country's political divide, with critic's suggesting Trump bears some responsibility for the climate that led to explosive devices being sent to

Moataz Azzeh, a decorated former U.S. Army soldier who pretended to take on a hit job for two Houston area doctors in a murder-for-hire plot speaks out about the shocking case to 48 Hours.

Valerie McDaniel, a veterinarian, and Leon Jacob, a surgeon, quickly fell in love and even talked of marriage. Jacob was an up-and-coming doctor with plenty of confidence. She was newly single after getting a divorce from her ex-husband Marion "Mack" McDaniel. But there were some problems.

The McDaniels were in the midst of an ugly custody battle, while Leon Jacob was facing felony charges for stalking an ex-girlfriend. If found guilty on those charges, it could have upended his medical career.

A paraplegic athlete from Australia claims he was forced to urinate in a water bottle on a flyDubai plane because the airline didn’t have a wheelchair to accommodate him.

Darren Belling was flying from Dubai to Helsinki on his way to represent his country in the World Para Ice Hockey Championships in October when the incident occurred.

Belling said he asked flight attendants about a wheelchair to use the restroom three hours into the journey but the flight attendant told him they "don't carry on-board wheelchairs" and he would have to hold it for the seven-hour journey, BBC reports.

It was then that airline staff decided to bring Belling an empty water bottle as a means for him to

The Florida Broward County elections office missed the state deadline to submit recount results by just 2 minutes.

"Basically, I just worked my ass off for nothing," said Broward elections official Joseph D'Alessandro.

“We uploaded to the state two minutes late so the state has chosen not to use our machine recount results,” he said.

In Palm Beach County, outdated vote-counting equipment broke down, causing its elections office to miss the deadline. Only able to count one race at a time, they didn’t even finish the one they started, the Senate race.

“It was a heroic effort and we just completed uploading our Saturday results, as was required by law,” Bucher announced the deadline

PARADISE, Calif. — The search intensified Wednesday for those missing after the Camp Fire, which virtually wiped out the town of Paradise. New drone footage of the devastation shows how quickly the fire consumed the town of Paradise. Home after home was leveled. The Federal Emergency Management Agency said it could take five to six years until Paradise starts to look like a city again.

Many of the deceased died in Paradise in their homes or as they attempted to escape the fast-moving blaze.

"It was outrunning us before we knew we were in the race, and that made it more difficult," said Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea.

More than 220 people are unaccounted for. Some of their names hav

By Mike Wall, Space.com The nearest single star to the sun apparently hosts a big, icy planet.

Astronomers have found strong evidence of a frigid alien world about 3.2 times more massive than Earth circling Barnard's Star, a dim red dwarf that lies just 6 light-years from the sun. Barnard's Star is our sun's nearest neighbor, apart from the three-star Alpha Centauri system, which is about 4.3 light-years away.

The newly detected world, known as Barnard's Star b, remains a planet candidate for now. But the researchers who spotted it are confident the alien planet will eventually be confirmed. [Barnard's Star b: What We Know About the "Super-Earth' Candidate]

WASHINGTON DC - Michael Cohen said on a Vanity Fair interview that President Donald Trump used racist language in several private conversations with him during the time he worked as Trump's personal lawyer and "fixer."

In the interview, Cohen said he can recall at least four times that Trump made denigrating comments to him about black people.

Cohen said that Trump made a disparaging comment about African-American voters when they were discussing the turnout for one of his 2016 campaign rallies.

"I told Trump that the rally looked vanilla on television. Trump responded, 'That's because black people are too stupid to vote for me,' " the President's former lawyer told the magazine. C
