As if 3D TV and LED LCD vs. OLED vs. plasma and 120Hz and the Soap Opera Effect weren't confusing enough, in the last year we have seen the rise of a new HDTV technology called 4K. Or if you use its official name, Ultra High Definition (UHD).

UHD is an "umbrella term" that encompasses higher resolutions (more pixels) than HDTV, as well as more realistic color and higher frame rates. Today and this year, pretty much the only one of those improvements available in new TVs and content is 4K resolution, so that's what we'll talk about here. Judging from the new TVs shown at CES 2014, manufacturers are tripping over themselves to bring you a new array of 4K compatible products.

After 57 days in the hospital, 15-year-old India Brainard who has cerebral palsy got a surprise visit on Thursday from her boyfriend, Daniel, ABC News reported.

Earlier this year, India underwent a dual hip replacement procedure and femur re-alignment surgery in Boston. Her legs and one of her arms are paralyzed, according to ABC News.

India was supposed to be home from the hospital three weeks after her surgery, but ended up staying much longer than expected, and is now recovering in a hospital in New Mexico.

Her father, Donnie Brainard, planned for her boyfriend to visit her in the hospital, hoping to perk her up. He also caught the touching reunion on video.

A Southern California man and his wife have been reunited with something very special -- his wedding ring.

Greg Lindsay's ring slipped off his finger and fell in the Pacific Ocean while he was at the beach two years ago.

Recently, Jenn Birchim found the ring while she was walking along the water. At first she thought it was a bottle cap.

"I mean, I thought it was somewhere in the Pacific," Greg said. "There's no way I thought after losing it, there's no way it would come back on shore." Jenn recounts thinking, "Oh my gosh it's a ring! And then I was looking at it and read the inscription and I was like, 'My Love, My Life, My Lobster?' And in my mind I was like, a lobster fisherman.

MESQUITE, Nev. - A day after blinking in a showdown on the range, federal land managers pledged to pursue efforts to resolve a conflict with a southern Nevada rancher who has refused to pay grazing fees for 20 years.

Bureau of Land Management spokesman Craig Leff said the agency would continue to try to resolve the matter involving rancher Cliven Bundy "administratively and judicially." Bundy owes more than $1 million in grazing fees, according to the bureau.

"The door isn't closed. We'll figure out how to move forward with this," he said Sunday. He declined to comment on possible options.

Bundy did not respond to requests for comment.

The fight between Bundy and the Bureau of La

(CNN) -- Australia's Prime Minister repeated Saturday that he has a "high degree of confidence" that acoustic signals detected in the Indian Ocean are from at least one of the two black boxes from the missing Malaysian plane, but predicted that finding them remains a "massive, massive task."

"It is likely to continue for a long time to come," Tony Abbott told journalists in Beijing, where he was on a diplomatic visit. Chinese officials appreciate Australia's "transparency and candor" in the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, he said, adding "I think it's to our country's credit that we've approached it that way."

According to Henry David Thoreau: "Happiness is like a butterfly: the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder."

A large number of psychologists dare to differ. According to them if you chase the pretty butterfly named happiness enough you might just get it to come and hop on your shoulder. Here are eight simple -- and some of them, essential - steps to happiness:

1. Stop dwelling.

The past is precious because you can learn from your mistakes and learn from others' mistakes.

The pain is just training; it doesn't define you. Think about what went wrong but stop dwelling on it. Decid

A female soldier who befriended a heroic bomb-hunting dog in Afghanistan tracked down her comrade and gave him a new home after he became too timid to serve on the front lines.

Angie McDonnell, 40, a reservist who served in war-torn Helmand province as a medic, became 'best friends' with four-year-old Vidar while the two were based at Camp Bastion.

The Army reservist, who works full-time as a paramedic, said: 'He saved my life so it’s only fair that I did what I could to save his.

'The dogs out there are heroes and I knew from the first moment I saw him that he was a one-in-a-million. He looked like he needed a cuddle so I went into his kennel and rubbed his belly. 'We became best

LONDON (AP) — Model and media personality Peaches Geldof, the second daughter of Irish singer Bob Geldof and member of a talented, troubled family who grew up in the glare of Britain's tabloid press, was found dead Monday at age 25.

There was no immediate word on the cause of Geldof's death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England, but police called it "unexplained and sudden."

In a family statement, Bob Geldof said: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain."

Peaches Geldof had acknowledged using drugs in the past but said in a 2009 interview that she had quit.

The news of her death came as a shock to Britain's entertainment and fashion circles, where Geldof had been active a

SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine - A malfunctioning ATM at a bank in Maine dispensed $37,000 in cash to a transient who requested $140, police say, according to CBS affiliate WGME.

South Portland police say they responded to the TD Bank branch Thursday morning after getting a call from a woman who said a man was spending an unusual amount of time at the ATM she was waiting to use. Officers responded and found the homeless man stuffing cash into a shopping bag.

The same man was found by police sleeping inside the bank beside the ATM the night before and police had kicked him out, according to the station.

The excess cash was returned to the bank and bank officials have declined to press charges

PERTH, Australia (AP) — Three separate but fleeting sounds from deep in the Indian Ocean offered new hope Sunday in the hunt for the missing Malaysia Airlines jet, as officials rushed to determine whether they were signals from the plane's black boxes before their beacons fall silent.

The head of the multinational search being conducted off Australia's west coast confirmed that a Chinese ship had picked up electronic pulsing signals twice in a small patch of the search zone, once on Friday and again on Saturday.

On Sunday, an Australian ship carrying sophisticated deep-sea sound equipment picked up a third signal in a different part of the massive search area.

"This is an important
