In his year-end newsletter Bill Gates wants to celebrate some of the good news hidden in this turbulent year. Millions of dollars in grants from the Gates Foundation helped to bend the curb on deadly diseases and child deaths around the world.

“More children are surviving than ever before and we’re making progress against some of the world’s deadliest diseases,” he wrote. “These are some of the most fundamental ways to measure the world’s progress—and by that measure, 2014 was definitely another good year.”

The highlights:

- This year we saw a four-decade trend continue, with child mortality rates falling for those under age five. And it’s falling faster than anyone expected.

A monkey saved the life of another monkey who fell unconscious after being electrocuted by high tension wires at a train station in India.

The monkey was electrocuted while walking on high tension wires in Kanpur's railway station. It then fell down on the tracks and lost consciousness while the other monkey came the rescue. The conscious monkey tried to revive the other by hitting, biting and tipping him in water. After 20 minutes the electrocuted monkey started to show signs of life and began moving again.

The life-saving monkey put forth a heroic effort to revive his friend — biting, shaking, hitting his head and finally rolling him into a trough of water.

After 20 minutes the

(CNN) -- The children of an elderly West Virginia couple who passed away months apart in late 2012 and early 2013 are blaming their deaths on a restaurant chain's meatloaf. Mark and Ann Starcher say a tainted meal that their parents shared from a local Bob Evans restaurant in October 2012 made them so "violently ill" that it ultimately led to their deaths, according to a lawsuit they've filed against the Ohio-based chain.

According to the complaint, about nine hours after consuming a meal of meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy, broccoli and a roll, Virginia Starcher -- who went by "Ginny" -- "fell violently ill" shortly before Harold Starcher "also became violently ill but was able to ca

Photo booths at weddings are nothing we haven't seen before. Using a photo booth to pop the question? That's an innovation we can get behind.

Kevin Moran and his high school sweetheart Molly McGinnis took a pic in a photo booth on their seventh anniversary. What McGinnis didn't know is that Moran had planned to pop the question as the camera snapped away.

In a post on Reddit, Moran explained that the photo booth provided a code to go online and view the video. He also sweetly confessed to practicing flipping open the ring box with one hand "a pretty decent amount" and to being "super nervous" beforehand. Check out the video above to see how it all went down.

A Northern California couple was mourning the death of their 11-year-old daughter after a mysterious allergic reaction turned fatal during a family Thanksgiving trip to Hawaii.

Paige Warner of Roseville had always had food allergies and was sensitive to environmental conditions, her mother Karin Carpenter said. Typically, Carpenter said she was able to get her daughter’s responses under control.

In Honolulu, Paige was “lit up,” she was so excited to be in Hawaii.

But about 10 to 15 minutes after swimming in a pool along with her younger sister Violet and a friend, Paige left the water to complain that her nose was burning. Then her throat started to swell up.

“This time, I just k

A 20-year-old British woman was killed after a truck driver piled into her car as he looked at porn on his cellphone.

An inter-family struggle earlier this year to wrest control of a grocery store chain from longtime boss, Arthur T. Demoulas, caused an uprising among workers who led a six-week employee walkout and customer boycott.

Market Basket loyalists won the fight and Demoulas, with his team, were back at the helm following an agreement in August to sell him the company.

But, after the fight, most employees gave up hope of receiving any Christmas bonus this year, especially because during the unrest the company appeared to be on the brink of insolvency.

Yet, Holiday bonuses for workers has been a tradition started decades ago by Arthur’s father, Mike Demoulas. And “Artie T.” wanted to thank hi

This kindhearted officer's unique approach to enforcing the law meant helping someone who needed it most.

Helen Johnson, of Tarrant, Alabama, went to a grocery store last Saturday to buy eggs. The 47-year-old had been in a tough financial spot and found that she was 50 cents short of being able to afford the carton of eggs. Johnson says she was desperate, as her grandchildren hadn't eaten in two days, according to WIAT.

“I actually thought that if I didn’t feed those babies, they were going to die," she told the outlet.

So the grandmother decided to put three eggs in her jacket pocket, WIAT reported. However, the eggs broke and a store employee who caught her stealing called the cop

It was Sunday, December 7th, 2014, exactly 73 years after the Pearl Harbor attack, when we drove to Carlton, Oregon and took Meadowlake Road into the foothills of the Coast Range Mountains, the southern section of the Tillamook State Forest. We soon passed the McGuire Reservoir as we had at least a dozen times before and the weather was cool, mostly dry.

We normally carry emergency supplies such as matches, flashlight, flares, extra food, water, gun, extra shoes, socks, heavy blankets, coats and extra long sleeved shirts, etc, and let someone know where we we're going. But today we told
