It looks like street magic: A food grinder, some lengths of PVC pipe, a couple of 10-gallon buckets, and flexible plastic tubing lie on the table in front of Thomas H. Culhane. He enthusiastically promises the crowd gathered at a biodigester workshop that anyone can use these items to make enough clean-burning biogas to cook food every day using the scraps from yesterday’s meals.

But his magic is backed by hard science.

Dr. Culhane, a member of the National Geographic Emerging Explorer program and a visiting professor at Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y., has spent the past five years extolling the merits of locally sourced biogas technology. Based in Germany, with one job in the Unit

Eboni Stevenson, a senior at Thomas Jefferson High School in Denver, won an award recently for devoting more than 3,000 hours of her time to volunteer work – a new record.

Her enthusiasm for helping other students and the community was sparked in middle school when she was paired with a mentor from the Metro Denver Partners.

When she got older, she came back to the group as a peer leader, logging hours working with girls, and also on volunteer projects there, like the annual food drive.

Eboni exceeded her school’s standard for community service by logging 3,840 volunteer hours. She will attend Colorado State University after graduation and is already planning a major in social work.

Pain management specialist Dr. Houman Danesh of Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York says there are some pains that you should never ignore.

They are:

A sharp ache between your shoulder blades
A ‘thunderclap’ headache

Tooth pain that wakes you up
Mid-back pain with fever
Menstrual cramps that don’t get better with medication
A tender spot on your calf

In a TODAY show segment, she explains how to recognize when some pains, even if they seem small, need immediate attention.

It's time to have some real fun -- the kind that makes your palms sweat and your heart race. The kind that gets caught in your throat, emerging only after the adrenaline dies down as a primal, life-affirming holler. The kind your mom might shake her head at with a concerned look and an exasperated sigh.

Some of the clips below (who are we kidding - most) are foolish even in the best of circumstances. It goes without saying, but you shouldn't attempt any of these on your own.

Below, we've collected videos of those whose zeal for life expresses itself in unconventional, yet downright awesome ways.

There was a photo finish at a junior high school track meet in Illinois over the weekend as two runners crossed the line at almost the same time -- but they weren't battling for first and second place.

They were coming in dead last, for the best reason possible.

Twin sisters Chloe and Claire Gruenke, 13, had been competing in the 800-meter race at the Southern Illinois State Track Meet when Chloe felt something pop and went down.

"I thought oh my goodness what just happened," Claire told KSDK.com. "I went up to her and I said 'Chloe are you okay?' and she was like 'I don't know. Something just pulled in my leg.'"

Claire didn't call for help, nor did she wish her sister better luc

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Thanks to a 911 dispatcher, an 8-year-old girl helped her mother deliver a baby boy while waiting for paramedics to arrive at their Tampa Bay-area home.

According to Tampa Fire Rescue, Krystle Garcia was in labor Monday morning when she called 911. The dispatcher alerted paramedics, but they weren't quick enough to get there before the baby started to arrive.

Authorities say the dispatcher "expertly and compassionately" talked Garcia and her daughter Jazmine through the delivery of the baby. During an eight-minute call, Jazmine calmly relays the dispatcher's instructions to her mother, gets towels and other items and secures the baby's head.

"She is in so much pai

About 100 state troopers and deputies planned to search through the night for the third occupant of a hot air balloon that crashed in flames at a Virginia balloon festival, killing the other two people on board, state police said Saturday. Witnesses captured photographs of the balloon after it drifted into power lines, burst into flames Friday night and crashed into the countryside about 25 miles north of Richmond. Some reported seeing two people either jump or fall from the basket at a dizzying height.

The bodies were found about 1,500 yards apart in a heavily wooded area, Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said Saturday afternoon.

Two members of the University of Ric

A 93-year-old Central Texas woman was fatally shot at her home by a police officer – who has a history of fatal shootings when after she allegedly brandished a gun, the Hearne Police Department said Wednesday.

Patients who use medical marijuana for pain and other chronic symptoms can take an unwanted hit: Insurers don't cover the treatment, which costs as much as $1,000 a month.

Once the drug of choice for hippies and rebellious teens, marijuana in recent years has gained more mainstream acceptance for its ability to boost appetite, dull pain and reduce seizures in everyone from epilepsy to cancer patients.

Still, insurers are reluctant to cover it, in part because of conflicting laws. While 21 U.S. states have passed laws approving it for medical use, the drug still is illegal federally and in most states.

But perhaps the biggest hurdle for insurers is the U.S. Food and Drug Administrati
