Defects in fracked oil and gas wells in Pennsylvania are leading to methane leaks in shale wells throughout the state — greenhouse gas emissions that could exacerbate climate change, according to a Cornell University study published Monday.

The study, conducted by a team led by Cornell environmental engineering professor Anthony Ingraffea, analyzed more than 75,000 publicly available state environmental compliance records for about 41,000 oil and gas wells t

The mother of a toddler who died locked inside a sweltering SUV said that like her husband, she did online research on how long it would take a child to die in a hot car because she feared it would happen, according to a search warrant released Sunday.

Leanna Harris hasn't been charged in the death of her son, 22-month-old Cooper, and police have not called her a suspect. But the search warrant said the woman went onto the Internet before the boy's death to search for information about children dying in cars.

A judge will determine this week whether there's enough evidence to keep Justin Ross Harris in jail. He is charged with murder and second-degree child cruelty, and will go befo

Washington (CNN) -- The Supreme Court ruled Monday that closely held companies cannot be required to pay to cover some types of contraceptives for their employees, ending its term with a narrow legal and political setback for a controversial part of President Barack Obama's health care reform law.

In a 5-4 decision, the high court's conservatives essentially ruled that some for-profit corporations have religious rights.

The owners of Hobby Lobby, furniture maker Conestoga Wood Specialties and Christian bookseller Mardel argued that the Affordable Care Act violates the First Amendment and other federal laws protecting religious freedom because it requires them to provide coverage for co

When most 8-year-old kids think about their birthday, they dream about a fun party with their friends, a delicious cake and a huge pile of gifts.

Ethan Katz is not most kids.

A couple months ago, when he was talking about turning 9 with his mom, Lisa, he decided that for his birthday, he wanted to raise money to save dogs.

"Ethan is an avid dog lover and always has been," Lisa told The Huffington Post.

The Katz family has two rescue dogs: a golden retriever named Fly and a mini golden retriever named Brooklyn, who started off as a foster puppy from City Dogs Rescue, a D.C.-based nonprofit that rescues dogs from overcrowded or high-kill shelters and places them in foster homes. Th

HP, one of the original 800lb Silicon Valley gorillas that has seen much happier days, is staking everything on a brand new computer architecture that it calls… The Machine. Judging by an early report from Bloomberg Businessweek, up to 75% of HP’s once fairly illustrious R&D division — HP Labs – are working on The Machine. As you would expect, details of what will actually make The Machine a unique proposition are hard to come by, but it sounds like HP’s groundbreaking work on memristors (pictured top) and silicon photonics will play a key role.

In the words of HP Labs, The Machine will be a complete replacement for current computer system architectures. There will be a new operating syst

Actor Gary Oldman grew weepy in an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” apologizing for his recent comments in an interview with Playboy.

"I said some things that were poorly considered, and once I had seen it printed, I could see that it was offensive, insensitive, pernicious and Ill-informed," he said Wednesday night.

"I have deeply injured and wounded a great many people … from my heart, I am profoundly, profoundly sorry."

In the expletive-laden Playboy interview, the "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" star defended fellow actors Mel Gibson and Alec Baldwin from critics of their controversial remarks about Jews and gays, decrying the "political correctness" that ensnared the actors.

A 12-year-old boy who had been missing for a week and a half and was the subject of an extensive police search was found alive and well Wednesday in the basement of his home.

Officers discovered the boy while serving a search warrant on the home as part of their investigation into his disappearance. It's not clear if the boy had been there the entire time; officers had been inside the home before and cadaver dogs searched the house last week.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig said when police found Charlie Bothuell V, he appeared to be hiding and did not announce himself. Hours earlier, Craig had told reporters that investigators were "not ruling out the possibility of homicide" in the

RIO DE JANEIRO -- FIFA banned Uruguay striker Luis Suarez from all football activities for four months on Thursday for biting an opponent at the World Cup, a punishment that rules him out of the rest of the tournament and the start of the upcoming Premier League season.

The ban also covers Uruguay's next nine international games, which goes beyond the next four months and rules him out of next year's Copa America. It will likely carry over to qualifying matches for the 2018 World Cup.

FIFA also fined the Liverpool striker 100,000 Swiss francs ($112,000).

Uruguay's football federation said it plans an appeal to FIFA before the team's round-of-16 game against Colombia on Saturday in R

A Golden Retriever that got separated from its owners during a camping trip in California's Tahoe National Forest was reunited with its family and doing well after apparently surviving on its own for nearly two years in the wilderness, the family said.

Erin and Nathan Braun were on a camping trip in October 2012 when the dog, named Murphy, went missing, according to the Los Angeles Times. The couple posted fliers and created a Facebook page about the disappearance to no avail.

Twenty months later, a camper at the French Meadows Reservoir, not more than five miles (eight km) from where the Brauns lost Murphy, spotted the pet and alerted the family, according to a Facebook post written b
