This year's winner is a A 2-year-old mutt named Peanut, whose wild white and brown hair, bulging eyes and protruding teeth belie his sweet, energetic personality.

Although Peanut is healthy now, his owner, Holly Chandler of Greenville, North Carolina, says he was seriously burned as a puppy, resulting in bald patches all over his body.

Chandler hopes Peanut's victory will help raise awareness about animal abuse.

"We're trying to use him as a poster child for what can happen to animals who are abused," she said.

She plans to use the $1,500 prize to pay for other animals' veterinary bills.

The contest, held at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds in Petaluma, California, is in its 26th

A steady rain drenched hundreds of kids and parents Tuesday as they ran, jumped and waded into a 75-by-150-foot mud pit during the 26th annual event at a suburban Detroit park.

Todd Mueller missed 2013's sunny Mud Day because he had to work. But the 43-year-old consultant from Ann Arbor took the day off this year to make it to the Hines Park-Nankin Mills recreation area in Westland with his wife and their two kids.

Not more than 10 minutes in, Mueller was on his back in the middle of the pit covered from head to toe in mud, which he described as "soft and squishy" before his daughter jumped up and slathered on some more.

Jillian Palshan was rewarded for covering herself in the brown

San Francisco - A long-shot effort to break California into six separate states got a boost on Monday, when the billionaire venture capitalist behind the proposal said he had gathered enough signatures to place it on the ballot in two years.

Timothy Draper, a founder of a Silicon Valley-based venture capital firm that has invested in Twitter, Skype and Tesla, among other companies, has been agitating for months for a ballot initiative to chop the most populous U.S. state into smaller entities.

"It??s important because it will help us create a more responsive, more innovative and more local government, and that ultimately will end up being better for all of Californians," said Roger Sal

A Perth man whose leg slipped into a space between a train and the platform was freed by his fellow passengers, who formed a human bond and pushed the train car enough to release his trapped limb.

The man was boarding the train in Perth, Australia around 9 AM, and misstepped right next to the painted warning to ‘Mind The Gap’.

One eyewitness said, “He stood in the doorway and as he was sort of taking up his position there, one leg slipped outside the door, slipped outside the gap, and he was stuck. “We alerted the driver, made sure the train didn’t move.”

The surveillance camera caught the spontaneous community rescue and the video was shared with Australian media.

After a 10-year chase taking it billions of miles across the solar system, the Rosetta spacecraft is homing in on its close encounter with a comet.

Blurry pictures of the oddly-shaped rock have already been returned but on Wednesday scientists at the European Space Agency, which is leading the project, say they hope to see images from within about 75 miles as the probe carries out the last of its braking maneuvers.

If successful, the mission will notch up a series of firsts. Rosetta will be the first spacecraft to orbit a comet on its journey around the sun, and in November mission controllers aim to place the robotic lander Philae on the surface -- something that has never been done b

Growing up as a celebrity child is often both very glamorous and difficult. After all, these kids get whatever they want, yet at the same time they are hounded by the paparazzi 24/7. And while many of them are wee-little when we first meet them through the camera, as they age, there’s one thing that usually determines whether or not the paparazzi will continue to follow them around or leave them alone–the determining factor is whether or not they get H-O-T-T hott. Let’s take a quick look at several child celebs who turned out to be very pleasing on the eye.

Remember Harriet the Spy? Michelle Trachtenberg has always been a great actress, but she really surprised everyone with the beaut
