The eight cows damaged cars, trampled on residents' gardens and left behind cowpats as they caused chaos after going on the run.

The cows were let loose when a tractor and trailer transporting them overturned on a busy road and it took three hours to round them up.

One officer was taken to hospital after suffering injuries when a startled cow charged at him during the incident in Bradley Stoke, Bristol.

Craig Evry, Avon and Somerset police spokesman, said: "There was an accident involving a trailer on Friday lunch time which led to a number of cows escaping.

"Officers attended the scene to try and round up the cows.

"One of the officers was injured after a cow ran into him and

A New Jersey family whose terrier-pit bull mix escaped from their backyard during Superstorm Sandy went to an animal shelter this week to adopt a new pet and came home with their old dog.

Chuck James tells The Associated Press that his family searched for the brown-and-white dog named Reckless for months after the October 2012 storm before finally giving up hope.

"We reported him missing and called the shelters periodically, just hoping they had him," James said Saturday. "We always kept our hopes up, but eventually it's time to move on."

James said the family had planned in recent weeks to get a new dog as a 10th birthday surprise for their eldest daughter, Ally.

But when the fa

This fisherman's catch is goblin up the headlines.

A Florida shrimper accidentally caught an incredibly rare Goblin Shark off the coast of Key West, Florida, on April 19, according to the Houston Chronicle.

"I didn't even know what it was," fisherman Carl Moore said. "I didn't get the tape measure out because that thing's got some wicked teeth, they could do some damage."

Instead, Moore snapped some quick photos and threw the shark back in the ocean.

Moore didn't report the find to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration until Thursday. According to the NOAA, the 18-foot-long shark is only the second ever seen in the Gulf. It is "one of the rarest species of sharks,"

The woman named Vivian Maier died alone and unknown. By “accident” a huge trunk filled with 100,000 films and negatives were discovered in 2007 that revealed, although she worked as a nanny, her great passion was photography. And no one knew it.

A video clip, from a documentary, “Finding Vivian Maier“, shows that once uncovered, her street photos — mostly taken in Chicago — took the art world by storm.

“Finding Vivian Maier traces the life story of the late Vivien Maier, a career nanny whose previously unknown cache of 100,000 photographs has earned her a posthumous reputation as one of America’s most accomplished and insightful street photographers.”

In 2007, John Maloof, a young w

Steve Jobs, the late co-founder of Apple, was known for his walking meetings. Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg has additionally been seen holding meetings on foot. And perhaps you've paced back and forth on occasion to drum up ideas. A new study by Stanford researchers found support for the intuitive beg to move. Creativity levels in people rose by an average of 60 percent if they walked instead of staying seated.

The study, co-authored by Marily Oppezzo, a Stanford doctoral graduate in educational psychology, and Daniel Schwartz, a professor at Stanford Graduate School of Education, found that walking indoors or outdoors similarly encouraged creative inspiration. The act of walking itself, an

Apparently, on some level, The Lending Club is not much more than a scam to some, a workplace to a few, and something else to others.

At least that's my opinion. Here's the general scenario I found:

I received a complaint directed to me here at The Oregon Herald from an individual who stated he had received an unsolicited US postal mail from The Lending Club that he had been pre-approved for a loan. Ever see such a thing? Hey must be legit because, well, just must be. Right?

It was a slow work day so I decided to see if I could duplicate the same solicitation and I could always use a loan if there was no penalt

Near Perth, Australia -- A private company declared that it has found what it believes is wreckage of a plane in the ocean, but leaders of the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 are dismissing the claim.

The reasons for the skepticism are obvious -- the site where GeoResonance says it found the wreckage, in the Bay of Bengal, is several thousand miles away from the current search area in the southern Indian Ocean.

The Joint Agency Coordination Centre, which is coordinating the multinational search, dismissed the claim.

"The Australian-led search is relying on information from satellite and other data to determine the missing aircraft's

If your spouse expects good things to happen, you may be reap better health as a result.

Having an optimistic spouse predicted better mobility and fewer chronic illnesses over time, even above and beyond a person’s own level of optimism, according to a new University of Michigan study of 3,940 adults.

Researchers used data from the Health and Retirement Study, a national study of American adults over age 50. The study’s 1,970 heterosexual couples were tracked for four years and reported on their physical functioning, health and number of chronic illnesses.

“A growing body of research shows that the people in our social networks can have a profound influence on our health and well-be

Singer-songwriter Paul Simon said Monday that he and wife Edie Brickell "just had an argument" Saturday night.

Simon spoke briefly to reporters outside the Norwalk, Connecticut, courthouse where the couple had just appeared before a judge on disorderly conduct charges.

"Edie and I are fine," Simon said. "We're going to see our son's baseball game this afternoon." The couple were arrested by police investigating a family dispute Saturday night in New Canaan, Connecticut, according to police.

Simon and Brickell appeared together in the Norwalk Superior Court, but no action was taken and their case was continued until May 16, the court clerk said.

The judge declined to issue a prot
