The other children love using sign language so much that some of them have begun teaching their parents at home.

PORTLAND, Ore. (Reuters) - Environmentalists sued a branch of the U.S. Department of Agriculture on Wednesday in a bid to block federal agents from carrying out targeted killings of gray wolves in Oregon, as debates simmers over protections afforded the animals in the wild.

The lawsuit against the USDA's Wildlife Services agency came two months after a U.S. judge in neighboring Washington state ruled that the federal agency's environmental assessment of its work was inadequate, and blocked wolf kills in the state.

"The environmental analysis they put out for both Washington and Oregon were virtually identical, which is part of the reason we don't think they did a meaningful analysis in

The Portuguese were stunned this week by a unique cloud formation over the island of Madeira.

The bright orange cloud looked as if it was a burning clenched fist. Many have dubbed it "the hand of God."

The cloud was spotted by weather blogger Rogerio Pacheco. His photos soon got attention on social media.

"As soon as I saw the sky, I was immediately intrigued and I just had to grab my camera to take photo," said Pacheco. "For me, the cloud looks like an outstretched hand with a fireball."

Everyone at one time or another has marveled at the beautiful red and orange colors of a sunrise or sunset. Although colorful sunrises and sunsets can be seen anywhere, certain parts of

Trevor Sullivan, 15, of Detroit, Michigan, was diagnosed with severe cardiomyopathy in February 2015. He underwent the surgery on Nov. 13, 2015, but it was just this week when his dad Philip shared the results with Gift of Life Michigan on Facebook.

"I really like the video, actually," Trevor said. "I think it's really cool and I wish everyone in the world can see it because it really makes a difference. It promotes organ donation and people can see the outcome of it and how happy they really are."

"It blew me away," Kimberly Sullivan said. "Honestly, for me, I didn't know what to expect. I kind of thought he'd wake up disoriented and in pain, but instead he woke up happy, ready to go

PORTLAND, Ore. — A growing number of Portland State University students are using the help of a site called SeekingArrangement.com to help finance their education.

Students sign into the site using their college email addresses. Those students, or "sugar babies" as they're called, are then paired with a "sugar daddy" who gives them an average monthly allowance of $3,000.

The relationships that stem from the site are not necessarily sexual. The site reads: "Our members know what they want. Users approach one another without worrying about false pretenses."

"We say that people can build relationships on their own terms," Seeking Arrangement spokeswoman Brook Urick said.

Heather Crank shared on Facebook:

"Tonight as we were seated a few booths down from this table I asked the server 'so what's that reserved table all about?' She then smiled and said, 'It's for our regulars. They come here for dinner every night. Today is her 91st Birthday! So we here at Applebee's wanted to do something special for her! We all signed a card and are anticipating their arrival. We hope they show ..we're thinking they're waiting until after peak dinner hour ends since she's not fond of crowds.' We're hoping the couple arrives while we're dining to see the surprise on their faces.

Applebee's servers waited and waited and finally decided they must have decided to go els

Just before Christmas, an Iowa high school wrestler collapsed during a match and died hours later. During the school's first home dual meet since he died, an opposing wrestler forfeited his match and drew the adoration of everyone in the gym in the process.

Austin Roberts' record was 14-0 during his senior season when he collapsed during the championship match of the Spencer Tiger Invitational on December 19. He died within hours at Spencer Hospital. Amed Castro-Chavez of Estherville-Lincoln Central High School was on the mat next to Roberts that day. He had lost to Roberts earlier in the season and when the team returned to Spencer last Thursday, there was no one to wrestle Castro-Chavez

In Madison, Wisconsin, a person hit a dog that ran into the street. The dog's owner posted this notice on Craigslist in hopes that the news will reach the driver.

"To the person who ran over my dog on Nov. 14"

I just wanted to say that he is okay!

Saturday, Nov. 14 around 11:00 am in Sun Prairie: My dog, a medium-sized tan lab mix, darted out of the house and into the street in front of your car at the wrong moment.

Thank you for stopping to see if we needed help instead of driving away.

It has been bothering me that I had no way to contact you and tell you that he made it. My neighbors were shocked he survived with how ugly it looked, but he is too stubborn to die and he has
