In 1974, I graduated from Skyline High School in Oakland, California, an underachieving student with lousy SAT scores.

Allowed to send my results to three colleges, I chose MIT and Villanova, knowing such fine schools would never accept a student like me but hoping they'd toss some car stickers my way for taking a shot. I couldn't afford tuition for college anyway.

I sent my final set of stats to Chabot, a community college in nearby Hayward, California, which - because it accepted everyone and was free - would be my alma mater.

For thousands of commuting students, Chabot was our Columbia, Annapolis, even our Sorbonne, offering courses in physics, stenography, car mechanics, certifi

EL CAPITAN - From around the world, the crowd thickens climbers approach the summit of dangerous El Capitan.

The view across Yosemite Valley is a vista of snowy peaks in the Sierra Nevada mountains. The climbers are expected to finish the last effort and arrive or crawl the last few feet to the top.

It is the trill of a lifetime for two climbers trying to make history by being the first to scale a 3,000-foot sheer-granite wall in Yosemite National Park using only their hands and feet.

For 19 days, Kevin Jorgeson, 30, of Santa Rosa, Calif., and Tommy Caldwell, 36, of Colorado, have been attempting what many consider impossible on one of the world's most difficult climbs: Being the fi

PARIS, France - The first edition of Charlie Hebdo since last week’s massacre has been published, with a cover proclaiming, "All is forgiven."

France readers have purchased the magazine in record numbers, the newest edition of Charlie Hebdo. However, U.S. publications have refused to do the same, apparently afraid to front the Prophet Muhammad in U.S. stores.

Today the satirical newspaper's first issue since last week's deadly attack on its staff went on sale in France with an initial print run of 3 million copies and front-page coverage around the world.

But the New York Post reports that there will only be 300 copies of the issue for sale in the U.S., according to Martin McEwen, a

The 7-year-old girl who walked away from a small plane crash in western Kentucky used survival skills learned from her father. Four members of her family where killed in the crash.

Sailor Gutzler was the only survivor after her family's Piper twin-engine aircraft landed upside down in a wooded area in Lyon County on Friday, leaving her parents, sister and cousin dead. The resourceful girl was able to climb out of the devastating wreckage, lit a stick from the burning wing and with bleeding, and with broken bones, she was able to walk through the cold darkness to survive.

Second-grader Sailor Gutzler walked three-quarters of a mile through the woods and a creek before she knocked on a h

In La-la Land, you are surrounded by lots of “yes” men. But nobody pays us! So we’ll tell you like it is . . . if you made the list – check yo’self before you wreck yo’self.

That hair, that tongue, whatever the hell that was at the VMA’s . . . Miley needs someone in her camp to call her up and say “Girl, that ain’t cute.”

A late 11-year-old's final wish has inspired others to give back.

Natalia Marsh-Welton of Cincinnati, Ohio, battled brain cancer for more than a year, but died in November, according to her fundraising page. Before her death, the Make-A-Wish Foundation granted Natalia's wish to help the homeless by feeding those in need in her hometown, the Arizona Republic reported. The organization has since continued to honor the late 11-year-old's request: On Monday, it donated 100 blankets, along with ingredients to make Natalia's special soup, to kids at an after-school program at Central Arizona Shelter Services which provides support to at-risk and homeless families.

"It was a pleasant shock to
