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.

"Incredible," one woman is heard exclaiming as she recorded. A swim coach, Walker is tackling the hardest 7 oceans in the world, "the Oceans Seven" to raise money and awaren

Jindo, South Korea (CNN) -- In the final, chaotic moments before the South Korean ferry Sewol rolled over and sank into the chilly waters of the Yellow Sea, 48 girls obeyed the orders of crew members and put on their life vests. Perhaps afraid, they all crammed into a single room meant for 30.

The account of the recovery of the girls' bodies, offered Friday by rescue officials, offers a glimpse of the final moments aboard the sinking ferry, which went down April 16 with 476 people aboard.

It also illuminates the daunting task facing divers trying to retrieve bodies while maintaining a fading glimmer of hope that perhaps, somewhere aboard the ferry, someone re
